I've been mapping a bit of Edinburgh, Hereford, York and other places when I visit.

I'm also writing a Symbian OS C++ mobile phone mapping app, which I use for both making trails, entering annotations, and displaying OSM data already entered. See the page on this wiki or the project home page on

I think the OSM XML API is to bulky for mobile applications so have written a PHP proxy, that implements the OSM_Mobile_Binary_Protocol. This reduces the size of downloads by more than 60%.

WhereAmI also permits the creation of textual annotations which will be uploadable to the Notes/Feedback system OSM_Notes_API.

WhereAmI also supports GSM based locations.
