Look who's using openstreetmap

Today I went to a pubic consultation on the proposed A14 road upgrade (it's a section of road in Cambridgeshire UK) . The consultation was hosted by the Highways Agency ( they look after and manage roads and traffic in the UK) and showed the route and detailed junctions on Ordinance Survey Maps, But I was pleased to see they had a PC set up which showed some of the route layered onto good old openstreetmap as "people can see whats what with our clear and named streets". I said I was the mapper of this and that on our map and they asked a few questions about OSM and they seemed impressed with OSM. I left thrilled that a big national organisation takes our stuff seriously.

Shame they didn't attribute OSM though.
