BBC story on boring photos

Posted by ndm on 11 April 2015 in English (English)

Interesting (?) story: "Picture imperfect: Are these Britain's dullest photos?" http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-32128087 -- they look positively scintilating compared with some of my snaps from mapping :-)

Does anyone know whether http://www.geograph.org.uk/ images can be used for OSM?

Cheers, Neil

Same here, makes for interesting moments when I show pictures of my kids and then have to skip through 50 pictures of street signs :p

Geograph is an Interesting project, but at 1 photo per km2 there must be a huge amount of editoring happening (and therefore more interesting photos) compared to mapillary's default "0.5 photo per second, upload first check later".
