How OSM has changed my life: A Newbie's Perspective of Rural Mapping in the UK

A session at State of the Map 2013

  • Dudley Ibbett

Saturday 7th September, 2013

12:25pm to 12:45pm (GMT)

Dudley Ibbett
This talk will provide a roller coaster ride of the experiences of starting out as a new rural OSM mapper. The anxiety of the first edits and the elation of seeing the first rendered features. Discovering the practicalities of rural mapping and exploring the different methods that's can be used. The fear that one might not be doing it right and the depression that there is too much to map. The realisation that OSM has to be based on compromise and consensus and the heated nature of some discussions on OSMF are best ignored. To eventually accept that there will be a free walking map of the Peak District but it may take a little while to produce.
