Hello OSM

Posted by PatrickCoombe on 8 July 2014 in English (English)

I've been hearing a lot about OSM lately and came here to help out in any way I can. Hoping to start by tagging any buildings in our general area and working our way out. Thanks to all that you do!

Location: W Atlantic Ave, Delray Beach, Palm Beach County, Florida, 33445, United States of America

welcome Patrick! You might also find maproulette.org if you're in the mood for some armchair mapping. Hope you enjoy the community!

thanks @dalek2point3 :) looks like a fun little web app! having some problems navigating even the most basic stuff right now but getting the hang of it.

there are businesses in my area such as drug rehabs, website design agencies and AC companies and I am not sure what to tag them as. they aren't "retail" or any of the other default tags.

Great to have someone in Florida to map. I was in Orlando on vacation in February (for Disney etc. and also visited Tampa) and added a lot of stuff when I was there. There's lots to do in Florida.

Thanks Tom! Wow I had no idea Florida was so in need of mapping.

Question - is there a good mobile app that I can use to quickly add businesses and areas instead of having to log into the web interface?
