  • Yahoo! and OpenStreetMap have a bit of history ….
  • We’ve helped OSM in the past … I think Steve C summed this up earlier as “Yahoo! imagery, infringed, royally” … but that’s OK as we’re all geo-friends here.And OSM have helped us … OSM tiles have been used to help geotagFlickr photos in Beijing, in Kabul and in Baghdad. Aaron, Flickr’s geo-engineering geo-genius may have touched on this in yesterday’s Keynote but just as a reminder of this, here’s Flickrgeotagging for Beijing before the use of OSM tile and here it is after we added OSM tiles.http://www.flickr.com/photos/poolie/2271154446/
  • So last year I did a lightning talk on our recently launchedGeoPlanet web service and mentioned the geoidentifier we call WOEIDs, which I may mention again later, but only once.
  • This year I could have talked about our recently launched Placemaker web service …
  • But I didn’t want to do a sales or a product pitch … but the last thing I wanted was for Steve or Nick to go all Fake Ed Parsons on me …So instead I’m going to talk about something a whole lot bigger and more challenging for all of us, I’m going to talk about open and about Yahoo!, about open and about OSM and open and about geo data.http://twitter.com/chaitanyakuber/statuses/2385639129http://twitter.com/FakeEdParsons/status/1841477287
