I asked our local government and forest management for maps of various features around town. What they have given me is surveys with latitude and longitude or measurements of lot sizes.

The latitude/longitude can be entered by making custom gpx files but it would be cool if we could just enter it for a point. Also specify a distance and bearing for a projection of a point. or have a limiter on a line that to be x metres/feet long.

An another example could be I stand at the corner of a fence (which might be private property) and enter the lat/long in OSM. Then using a compass reading, and knowing his fence line is 500 metres from gov surveys, do a projection in OSM. That way I can plot areas I can't walk (like train tracks, or quarries, or rivers)
