When OSMer Gervase Markham heard the news from Google’s Ed Parsons about their mapping activities in the Carribean he had an idea.
Why let Google users have all the fun mapping Carribean islands? Why not send OSMers out to remote and exotic islands to map them and evangelise about OSM? Gervase has set up a pledge at PledgeBank which goes like this:
“I will spend an hour OpenStreetMapping features on Caribbean
islands from Yahoo! aerial imagery and will also donate £10 to the
OpenStreetMap Foundation but only if 60 other people will do the same.”
