OpenStreetMap

I think this has to be the ultimate in the “Open Source, Working Together” philosophy!

OpenStreetMap is a site that takes GPS data from users, and allows others to create road maps out of that data. In this respect, the work is free of all copyright, and should be correct as far as the data is available (i.e. no errors, and no fake roads added to ensure copyright status). For more information, follow the “Help/Wiki” link on the left of the homepage.

I don’t personally have a GPS receiver, so I’m probably going to have a go at joining up nodes and labelling roads!
