Jonc, I've noticed that you have been busy mapping Feltham. Nice job :-) I've been doing Sunbury (and recently Hampton) which is quite near you. Maybe we should hook up sometime and compare notes. 80n 08:44, 28 September 2006 (BST)
Hi, I'm not familiar with using wikis for talk, so hope it's right to reply here! Thanks, I need to do quite a bit of tidying of the data I've entered as during my learning curve, I've tagged several streets as the same "way" and missed roads etc while traveling. I think I now need to be a more methodical. Sounds like a good idea.... I havn't got that many notes at this point though! :-) jonc 07:22, 1 October 2006 (BST)
- What you have done so far in Feltham is looking pretty good. It could use some street names which can by collected using a digital camera, dictaphone or just pencil and paper.
- I don't see any problem with licensing your software under a BSD license. OSM data is Creative Commons, and any derivative (such as a rendered map) must also be CC, but the licence of the software that is used to make the derivative can be pretty much anything. AFAIK there is normally no cross-contamination between a software license and the license used for the data.
- There is not much activity (if any) in Africa on OpenStreetMap at the moment, but the potential is enormous. You might be interested in http://www.tracks4africa.com/ which seems to use the same data collection principles as OpenStreetMap, but then wants money for the resulting maps.
- Do you know of a good pub halfway between us where we could meet sometime? 80n 10:33, 2 October 2006 (BST)
Stick with the project, we're only young and nothing's set in stone yet. No-one's quite worked out the applicability of CC-SA for data yet and there may be surprises to come. --Richard 21:32, 10 October 2006 (BST)
