New contributors to OSM in Cleveland !

Posted by skorasaurus on 3 March 2011 in English (English)

I'm trying this diary out for the heck of it and there's OSM news.

Since I started editing the Cleveland area in OSM in late December, no one else locally had made edits to the Cleveland area, with the exception of 2-3 people who edited once.

Just in the past 7 days, there has been a sudden explosion of new users, who are contributing within the City of Cleveland and nearby: adding local businesses, parking lots, and schools to the map [something that I have only did a little of, because there's so much to be done in Cleveland].

Days after joining osm, I was shocked to find other cities: Chicago, Cincy, Philly, and countless ones in Europe, to have maps so much richer than the rest of the city of Cleveland.

Cleveland just got a lot stronger and welcome new users =)

interesting that you're seeing a lot of interest all of a sudden. i just signed up for my own reasons... looking into different means to accomplish something for a project. unconnected to why anyone else might've shown up, but curious. anyway...

Two years ago, Detroit was a TIGER desert. Good examples like Cincinnati are spreading like a seed as they encourage other mappers to do the same.
