OpenStreetMap

Corrections and Adjustments

Posted by James Tait on 14 August 2008 in English (English)

Following a comment from Mark Williamson on my last diary entry I was able to line up the NPE map with my ways and correct (hopefully!) some of my previous inaccuracies. I've also started playing tonight with JOSM, which highlighted a whole load of GPS data I didn't even know existed, so I was able to line up my ways with the GPS data in some instances. There's still a certain amount of interpolation where I have no GPS data (yet!) but it should be more accurate now.

Now if only I can stop myself spending so long doing this stuff... but it's so much FUN!

Welcome to a 21st Century addiction :).

I think most of the map is the result of people being addicted to creating something useful.

Indeed. I'm an ardent Free culture advocate anyway and although I was aware of OSM before, it was LUGRadio Live UK that actually gave me the prod to start getting involved. It's just another "open source" project that I'm getting involved with!
