We need a name!

Posted by RobJN on 18 June 2014 in English (English)

A few OSM members interested in historic maps are working on our own version of the New York Public Library "Building Inspector". If you've not yet tried it out, go take a look - it's a great site:

So, the core function they are asking contributors to do is to check (inspect) and fix the rough building outlines produced by the computer script. Our version will be the same but will cover any city and any library we can get good maps for. But we need a name.

Current names suggested are:

  • Historic Map Marker
  • Old Map Marker
  • OHM Buildings
  • Historic Map Inspector
  • Building Surveyor
  • Historic Building Constructor
  • Historic Building Fixer
  • Ghost Mapper
  • Ghost Building Mapper
  • Ghost Brick
  • Ghost Bricks and Mortar
  • Houses and History
  • Historic Map Booth
  • Old Building Kiosk
  • Historic Building Outliner

We're after your thoughts - which name works best? Is there some amazing name we haven't thought of yet?
