Dear OSM diary, and new friends stumbling in the doorway here

Posted by CharlieKayCheyenne on 28 July 2013 in English (English)

Hey, it's lonely in here.
Yes, Wyoming is a very big place...9th largest state. It will take months to map Cheyenne. The new spring 2013 iD editor and mapbox alternative are great tools for OSM mapping. My edits appear the next day on Mapquest, and probably Bing.
Call me on my cell at 307 996-7795. I spend a lot of time logging details of each poly I put on Cheyenne map, but soon will be mapping Ft Collins and Loveland shopping areas, and civic buildings. I have on share I have self-hosted thru Blue Host at I have as my Google+ vehicle for business contacts. Join the network of the future. Ride the OSM wave of exponential growth in usage of OSM basemaps. Charlie Kay Cheyenne

Hi Charlie, I am not aware that bing is using OSM data (except [bing's military area blurring](// The other way round, [we are allowed to trace from bing's aerial imagery](//

Hello Charlie,

Welcome to OSM, and unfortunately - yes, Wyoming is going to be big and lonely as far as mapping goes (for a while at least, hope that changes). Not that I wouldn't love to see you helping out Northern Colorado, we have a pretty robust community and your efforts may be better directed towards your state. Of course your welcome to map where you want and if you're interested, check out - maybe either we'll have an event up in FC that you can make or if you happen to be further south during another, feel free to drop in.

Also let me know if you'd like some tips contacting other mappers in your beautiful state, and/or getting a local group going. I'm actually part of the American Red Cross CO/WY Region so hopefully I'll be able to encourage some of the volunteers up that way to start mapping.

Keep up the good work,
