Spreading OpenStreetMap in Latinoware 2011

Posted by wille on 22 October 2011 in English (English)

Djavan Fagundes and I attended to Latinoware 2011 to present OpenStreetMap. Latinoware (Free Software Latin America Conference) is one of the biggest events of free software of Brazil and it is hosted in Foz do Iguaçu, a city on the border of Brazil, Paraguay and Argentina.

In our speech, we talked about the importance and potential of OpenStreetMap. Furthermore we showed some mapping projects that we are developing and also how to start editing OpenStreetMap.

Two posts about the talk were published in Brazilian blogs (in portuguese only):

Primeiros mapeamentos com GPS

Posted by wille on 16 April 2011 in Portuguese (Português)

Recebi no início do mês de Abril um GPS Data Logger por empréstimo do Programa GPS Brasil. Atualmente moro em Cachoeira/BA, e pretendo mapear a cidade e várias outras vizinhas. Pretendo também relatar periodicamente o que tenho produzido aqui no diário.

Resolvi começar o mapeamento por algumas rodovias que passam pela cidade.

Mapeei a rodovia que liga Cachoeira a Feira de Santana e a rodovia que liga São Félix a Muritiba e à BR-101.

Também publiquei duas trilhas GPS, as quais utilizei para traçar as vias.

Center region of Feira de Santana, Bahia

Posted by wille on 25 January 2011 in English (English)

I have doing the mapping of the center region of Feira de Santana, Bahia. Yesterday I printed the map and I did notes while walking by the region.
On the next week I'll go there again and I intend to map more points and street names.
