Photographic Evidence

Posted by yintercept on 15 April 2013 in English (English)

Combining photography and OSM seems to work well.

There were several marks in Holladay and Mill Creek that contradicted the photos I had taken earlier in the day. Having photographic evidence in my hand gave me the confidence to make the corrections.


The danger of photography is that it becomes very tempting to add a triviality to a map simply because I have a good photo. Fortunately, I am good at avoiding temptation.

PhotoPhoto Maps - Utah

Posted by yintercept on 15 April 2013 in English (English)

I decided to replace my Google Maps with OpenStreetMap maps. Here is my first attempt at a map:

Park City, Utah

It uses a PNG copy of the map along with HTML relative positioning to show photos.

The map includes an SVG (which doesn't work for ie8 or android).

I believe the change to OSM will allow me to create a more dynamic collection of maps than the competitors.
