OpenStreetMap

I've been working on a couple of OSM-Related things, on-and-off, for a while, and I'm happy to announce that I've just released version 1.0 of both.

Healthware is a web site that uses the API & XAPI to find pharmacies (and, later, will also find hospitals). It's designed to run on any size screen, from the tiny little screen of my phone, to a full-sized monitor. Where the opening_hours tag has been added, it can work out whether a pharmacy is currently open or not. Source code is released under an MIT licence.

Secondly, OSM-Atlas is a PHP command-line script that uses a .osm file to create an atlas. It creates a PDF file, with front & back covers, overview map, detailed map pages, and index pages. This is also released under an MIT Licence.

Awesome! It's great to see that OSM-Atlas! i saved it, so it's on my list to figure out how to make it work.
Great job!

Perhaps you should request a SVN account and add your projects(s) to the OSM svn?

You can email Tom Hughes to request access.

@marscot:
I doubt I'll be adding anything other than hospitals. That said, the source is available, so if someone else wants to use it and modify it to have dentists, doctors, or whatever else, they're free to do so.

@Ævar Arnfjörð Bjarmason:
I'll find out about an OSM svn account, thanks.
