Day 1 Assignment for Locative Studio Students (please contribute here)
1. Explore the OSM wiki mapping projects page, and list a short description of one project you find interesting.
Mapping in Peru! The map of the railway from Cuzco to Machu Picchu by User: Ashawthing. Ashawthing designed the road routing software for Transport Direct, which uses historic road speeds to provide a 'truer' journey time than traditional road journey planners. I followed the rail track from Cuzco, all the way to Machu Picchu, where there is even a map of the unpaved roads that lead from the train station, up the mountain to the site of the Incan ruins. - emc
Mapping the Nile sounds really interesting not only because it's the longest river but also because it runs through very fascinating areas. (Silvia)
