OpenStreetMap

Constant (re)mapping

Posted by ndm on 1 November 2013 in English (English)

The local area's pretty much mapped near me -- so I was interested when I saw the new project for mozilla https://location.services.mozilla.com/map_world

Just on a couple of walks I've spotted new features that I need to add to OSM -- which shows why it's good to remap.

Now if only there was one application that could do both...

How does that map (coverage of geolocation-via-cell-towers database) help you find stuff to map ? Are you adding cell towers to OSM ?

I wonder how much cell data this app eats through. I imagine the major carriers don't let that data go free that verifies the location of the tower and associated IP addresses.
