Kids city map carpet

Posted by Pieren on 8 January 2013 in English (English)

Since dec 2012, a small French startup is selling a city map carpet for kids. Choose your area in OSM slippymap, 2 clics and the customized carpet will be produced just for you. Cost is 59€ + transport. Colours and zoom are optimized for kids playing with their toys. Carpet size is 128x80cm.

NB: website internationalisation is planned. More customization too (e.g. colours). For each sale, 1€ is donated to French OSM-fr local chapter. They already received complains from parents that street names are not printed ! Hey, dad, it's for your kid, not for you :-)

Very Cool.

I would probably already have bought one if you could rotate the map within the rectangle to better choose the area contained.

I added them to our "catalogue": http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Merchandise Might anybody please ask them, if we could share the second photo in the wiki under CC license?

Shows again, that open source opens peoples mind on what to do with data :)

Since I took that particular picture, you do have a CC license attached to it : CC BY-SA.

@Mappo Since you are the second person to request that particular feature ("rotating the image") it is now pretty high on our road map ;-) Watch this space for further news...
