Big believer in open source data and applications. Currently working around Kerang/Swan Hill so I will be collecting and contributing data in that area. Studied cartography at RMIT so I guess mapping is in my blood :) Not a big fan of the imagery so I will only upload data that has been collected by (the work) GPS which is a trimble GeoXH which, once post-processed, has an accuracy of <30cm - more than sufficient.
The task of mapping Bendigo will be made a little simpler as I am an orienteer. The Bendigo Orienteers have agreed to provide their maps for inclusion into OSM. I have started loading streets/paths on the orienteering maps (using geowarper to rectify them). Have been making good progress on getting the streets into OSM, now have to do the detail.
