Status

Eisingen und Waldbüttelbrunn sind halbwegs gemappt, Zell am Main auch, da bin ich aber noch am mappen.

Software

Unter www.petschge.de/projekte/mobilemap/ findet sich eine Kartenansicht von mir, die für kleine Bildschirme optimiert ist. Ideal also für Handies. Da keine Java oder Javascript nötig ist sollte die Karte mit wirklich jedem Browser der Bilder anzeigen kann funktionieren.

Unter http://tagstat.hypercube.telascience.org/index.php findet sich ein Dienst der aus den täglichen Planet Dumps aktuelle Statistiken über die Benutzung der Verschiedenen Tags erzeugt.

Weitere Dinge sind unter http://www.petschge.de/osm/toys.htm zu finden.

Patches

Außerdem hab ich diverse Patches geschrieben, die unter www.petschge.de/osm/ zu finden sind.

Mail me

Erreichbar bin ich unter osm@petschge.de

To whom it may concern:

I write to you as an contributor to the OpenStreetMap project.
OpenStreetMap (OSM) is a collaborative project to create a free editable
map of the world. The maps are created using data from portable GPS
devices, aerial photography and other free sources. Both rendered images
and the vector dataset are available for download under a Creative
Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 2.0 licence.

According to an announcement on April 21st of this year
(http://landsat.usgs.gov/products_data_at_no_charge.php) the USGS is to
provide data from the landsat mission free of charge. Can those data be
considered to be in the public domain, and thereby able to be used by
the OpenStreetMap project?

We envisage using the USGS data to improve OpenStreetMap's data on
features including (but not limited to) coastlines, lakes, and forests.

If you have any questions about OpenStreetMap or Creative Commons
Attribution licencing, please do not hesitate to ask, particularly if it
will help to resolve the question of whether the USGS license terms can
permit use by OSM.

Sincerely yours,
Patrick Kilian

Karen Wood,  from the USGS Office of Communications, asked me to reply to 
your question about distribution of Landsat data over the internet.

Landsat data from the USGS remains in the public domain and can be used 
without restriction.  No license agreement is needed.  In fact, one of the 
reasons for the 'no-cost' distribution policy is to make Landsat data 
available to an even wider audience and the kind of Landsat application 
you describe fits our objective.

If you should have questions feel free to contact either Karen or me.

Regards,

Ron
