OSM in Estonia First data – 23.07.2006, by LA2 (Sweden) Tartu city import – 2009 January NGO formalized – 2009 August To rise money To have legal body for parties Corine Land Cover import – 2009 October Official administrative borders NGO Project grant (~26.000 €): 2010-11 Localized global map with own servers Local language support Combination of OSM data with OSM-incompatible data Community development, mapping parties
Why import? Small population density Estonia: size of Netherlands, population 1.3 M Some cities not covered yet by volunteers Some roads/areas are very rarely reached by mappers Opportunity Public datasources are available, good IT level by state State organization is not too large, E.g. public WMS by National Land Board Our result About 2/3 of Estonian OSM is currently imported
Possible Sources Two technical types: Vector data On-line services (WMS) State government National Land Board Ministeries Municipalities State agencies E.g. Environmental, nature protection Companies Could be handlers of public data
Issues License – what licence? Our data is in Internet, why don’t you just use it? Do not know difference between: access openess usage rights Hard to access state by private person Official requests, permissions Formal rules by state prefer legal entities Strange cases We already gave our data to X company, we do not want to mess with this again.
Issues 2 Law of geospatial data State tries to monopolize all geodata handling Legal know-how needed to be involved in the process State official position Must follow the rules. If no rules, cannot do anything
Extra data We have got also permission to use: Aerial imagery DEM model data Where to put them?
Suggestions Socialize and network (without Internet) Formal NGO is useful to speak with state Import Import as little as possible (but as much as needed) Where existing data has very little value, so it can be discarded safely New datasets with no existing data, e.g. buildings
