  • “Location, Location, Location”
    “Everything is related to everything else, but near things are more related than distant things.“
    - The First Law of Geography
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tobler%27s_first_law_of_geography
  • Display WMS, KML & Internal Resources over an OpenStreetMap base layer (or Google, or Yahoo)
  • Just like Wikipedia, the power of crowd-sourcing for creating Accurate, up-to-date content is incredible.
    The fact that anyone can edit would seem to suggest that the data will be unreliable, but actually the opposite turns out to be true – there are more honest people than vandals.
    Not having a hard system of classification allows it to adapt rapidly which is especially useful for Local contexts.
    This doesn’t mean that there is anarchy – using agreed tags means that the various rendering engines will display them properly.

  • Jalalabad…nothing there is there?
  • Wrong! This is a significant place…
  • Yahoo are just as bad…
  • As are Microsoft…
  • But OpenStreetMap has a lot more :)
  • Google has pretty good coverage of Port au Prince…
  • …however OpenStreetMap is better & has the Damage Layer available. (It is also routable & had information on the blocked roads)

  • Seems to be an active community (especially Urban).
    Mapping Party held in 2009
    Domain openstreetmap.org.vn : Available (could setup a local server which would be faster for local users)
