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 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)
