I'm interested in helping OSM to start towards some kind of street view like service, which seems eminantly doable now that Androids standard camera app, allows for super easy taking of panoramic, full spherical style images.
Just having some trouble figuring out the most effective place to upload these?
- Theres opentrailmap.org, but then they only seem to want off road paths, parks etc.
- There's openlinkmap, but they only seem to be looking at adding this functionality at some time and even then they don't seem to have anywhere to upload the images
- there's openstreetview.org which looks promising, but as though it's been dead for years. Really this is the kind of thing I'm looking for, but is there anything more active?
- Then there seems to be some discussion about adding to OSM directly with the tags image=File:example.jpg and image:panorama=yes where example.jpg is your file uploaded to wikimediacommons. This looks like the most logical and promising, but will anywhere actually display these? the image tag is also marked as controversial, so will it stick around?
So where would you think to add street level, "Street View" style images into OSM so they're most likely to be useful?
