Community Value: OpenStreetMaps (OSM)

   

A terrific example of a community creating value, I came across yesterday, in looking for a way to use maps on my iPod Touch, while out and about.

I found the iPhone app (Cost: AUD4), OffMaps, which uses, Cloudmade route checking free protocols, on top of Open mapping system - OpenStreetMaps. A company which provides support (Itoworld.com) made a video showing how much data has been added to OpenStreetMaps in 2008. See below.

Enjoy, and contribute.
