Nasty habit. I shouldn't really. Far better to get out and map, but sometimes people are wrong on the internet.
- Documented in a subpage.
In no particular order.
- Cycle-specific things and POIs in the centre of Oxford; also trying to improve routing data there.
- Towns and villages around Oxford.
- Recently sorted: big chunks of Carterton
- On the horizon: Bicester again (after the ODbL change)
Getting around by: bicycle. Fast enough for mapping roads in town, plus you can park easily and go places you wouldn't be able to go by car. Just taken delivery of a lovely Dahon folding bike which should allow me to take the bike with me to more places by bus or rail.
Making tracks with: My phone, a camera, and a tiny little MTK-based GPS logger made by Blumax with a ginormously long record history and battery life. For editing on the go I use an Asus EeePC 901 running Ubuntu. It's tiny enough to fit in a small bike bag, more than capable of running JOSM, and has hours of lovely battery life.
For detailed mapping on foot: Osm2go for the N810 is a really neat tool for dropping in POIs and doing the detailed mapping stuff that can be missed even with a photo-mapping style. On Android I tend to use either OSMtracker (Android) or Vespucci as the mood takes me.
Editing maps with: JOSM mostly - I like the features, and I'm OK with the clunkiness. The built-in photo loading and timestamp association makes my style of photo note-taking a breeze. Still trying to like Potlatch.
