    3. 3. Quote 1 <ul><li>“ 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.” </li></ul>
    4. 4. <ul><li>“ 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.” </li></ul>Tim Berners-Lee
    5. 5. Quote 2 <ul><li>“ 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.” </li></ul>
    6. 6. <ul><li>“ 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.” </li></ul>Bill Gates

    10. 16. Folksonomy You decide what to “tag” things. Democratic, bottom up i.e. “how do you tag an orchard?” (a wood for growing apples) Tagging rules – match reality, not if it can be displayed by the rendering rules on the map http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/index.php/Map_features
    11. 21. Look at website and potlatch http://www.openstreetmap.org/?lat=34.83941&lon=134.69401&zoom=16&layers=0BFT
