    The full article really lays out some good arguments in favor of OSM. I think it's important to realize that this data is now available to people who would not have the means or resources to produce maps for themselves. They can also improve it for their needs, and contribute to creating a better resource for the commons.


    Sorry for the mangled title. I lost track of where the active window was when using my keyboard to move around my computer.
