I'm Matt White, and I'm currently mapping parts of the inner north (Brunswick to Preston), parts of Doncaster/Donvale, and on the sly (cos it's not exactly a high priority) starting to do a few tourist trails/forest trails and other 4WD-y tracks out towards Warburton/Marysville and the Wombat State Forest/Lederderg NP. The metro work is mostly off the imagery with the GPS trace, bush work is all GPS trace.
I'm working with a GPSMAP 60CSx, a Shogun Prairie Breaker MTB for local mapping, and a Hilux Surf for more remote bush/long distance mapping. I'm also starting to build a proper mapping rig for the Hilux - laptop, GPS and a couple of cameras plus some software to bind the whole shooting match together. Hopefully that way, I'll capture all the stuff like postboxes, traffic islands and the rest that I never get to write down. Might even make some decent maps out of it all...
I'm also creating Garmin maps for all of Australia on a nightly basis. These maps include the standard Garmin output, cycle maps and some specialised zoom level maps for rural mapping as well as a copy of the planet file for Australia only. There's also some out of copyright street map images up there (which are surprisingly accurate) from a 1936 Collins Street Directory. All of this info is available from www.osmaustralia.org
