What about quality? Dr Muki Haklay of UCL“OSM quality is beyond good enough, it is a product that can be used for a wide range of activities” Based on a detailed analysis http://tinyurl.com/mukiosm
Database 2007 data 69 countries 11m miles (18m km) of roads 18m points of interest “Creating, maintaining and delivering aPeople comprehensive, high quality map database is a multi-step, labor-intensive process. We Field force 700 currently employ over 270 employees in our centralized production facility and a global Central production 270 workforce of over 700 geographic analysts in 32 countries” Technology 500 Total 3349Financial Revenue $853m (~€604m) Data creation & distribution costs $396m (~€280m)
WHY BOTHER? As a mapper / user As a developer It’s fun!! It’s free!!Map what you want Access to vector data Download to mobile devices It’s useful Supported by many cool Faster corrections development tools Can use for asset tracking, turn by turn directions, etc
I am currently in Port Au Prince with the Fairfax County Urban Search & Rescue Team (USA-1) out of Fairfax, VA, USA. I wishthere was a way that I can express to you properly how important your OSM ﬁles were to us.
We are working with the Australia-Indonesia Facility for Disaster Reduction to collect exposure data using OpenStreetMap. We are working with 5 universities to collect urban data and community facilitators in rural areas to collect the information there. The goal is to collect 3 attributes about each building (number of ﬂoors, wall type and roof type). That will then be fed into risk modeling software. Currently it is a three month pilot to determine the feasibility of using OSM for this. With the rural facilitators they are already doing poverty mapping and we are just aiming to give them better tools in order to improve what they are doing as well as getKate Chapman them to collect some more data for the risk models. Executive Director of HOT It turns out the attributes we are interested in also can feed into the poverty analysis so they are really excited about it.New HOT project in Indonesia
