OpenStreetMap and HertsLUG

I went to my first ever HertsLUG meeting last night as OpenStreetMap were giving a talk. While I lurk on the OpenStreetMap mailing list and was familiar with their project, it was interesting to see the various tools demonstrated. JOSM, their primary online collaborative editor, looked particularly capable.

I was hoping to bend the ears of some of the OpenStreetMap chaps about Geograph and Ordnance Survey issues, but the talk went on a little longer than planned and I had to leave to transport a colleague back to the train station. Even so, it was worthwhile and has inspired me to go out and at least map my home town of Baldock.

My first post in September. Must try harder!
