OSGeo is your Open Source Geospatial Compass

OSGeo's mission is to:

  • Provide best-practise guidelines and examples for use of open and free standards for data (GML, WMS, WFS-T) and metadata (Dublin Core, RDF, ISO19115 through ISO19139).
  • Promote public access to state-collected geodata
  • Lead by example in demonstrating economic value and research activity generated by open access to public geographic information.
  • Run a repository of open geodata

the most successfull flickr photowalk ever

… and it wasn't even a flickr photowalk ! … it was The 18th CloudMade OpenStreetMap Summer 2008 Mapping Party ! CloudMade were giving out some great OpenStreetMap MOO Stickers and I legitimately added photos from the 1 hr photo / geotagging / mapping walk to ALL the flickr groups below.

Interestingly only 6 people had signed up on the upcoming event  but 16 turned up on the night !

If you want to help change the (map of the) world (or just get a sticker) turn up at the next OpenStreetMap event apparently thet meet every week in London !
