OpenStreetMap Oxford [Jan. 22nd, 2006|05:47 pm]
As many of you will know, I'm using my GPS to help with Open StreetMap. This is a project aiming to produce a map of all the roads, cyclepaths, footpaths etc in every country where there isn't already such information in the public domain. The aim is to produce a map under a suitable open license, so everyone can make use of it.

(In the UK, all that sort of mapping data is either crown copyright, or owned by one of a couple of mapping companies. All of them want lots and lots of money before they'll give you electronic versions telling you where things are)

I've set up a wiki page for mapping Oxford. So, if anyone fancies helping out with mapping Oxford, head over and put down the places they fancy mapping.
