  • 2007 - maturity?
  • OpenStreetMap
  • §
  • Why OSM? • Geodata isn’t • Free • Open • Current • Wiki is obvious next step • It’s just fun
  • Some Quotes
  • Quote 1 “It’s absolutely possible for a bunch of smart guys with the technology we have today to capture street networks, and potentially the major roads of the UK and minor roads” Ed Parsons, ex-CTO Ordnance Survey
  • Quote 2 “If you don’t make [lower-resolution mapping data] publicly available, there will be people with their cars and GPS devices, driving around with their laptops .. They will be cataloguing every lane, and enjoying it, driving 4×4s behind your farm at the dead of night. There will, if necessary, be a grass-roots remapping.” Tim Berners-Lee
  • Quote 3 “You could have a community capability where you took the GPS data of people driving around and started to see, oh, there’s a new road that we don’t have, a new route .. And so that data eventually should just come from the community with the right software infrastructure.” Bill Gates
  • We make beautiful maps
  • ...which we give away
  • Using OSM
  • Workshops Or, Map as Party
  • Fallout
  • A-Z Norman Dennison, director of Geographers' A-Z Map Company, confirms that Lye Close is a lie, which will now be removed. quot;The idea is to put something on the map to protect copyright,quot; he says. quot;We try to put it in an area or a part of a road which would not be misleading to the ordinary person in the street. They have been put in out- of-the-way places.quot;
