:: Overview

    OpenStreetMap creates and provides free geographic data - such as 
street maps.  You may think of downloaded maps as free, but they have 
legal or technical restrictions which prevent using them in creative, 
productive, or unexpected ways.

    Richard Weait, an active OpenStreetMap contributor, uses slides and 
laptop demos to describe the geographical products available and how to 
couple them into your project.

    Richard is also an enthusiastic volunteer cartographer in the 
London-Kitchener area of Ontario where he lives.  He will suggest many 
ways you can get in on the fun too.  

    Want an excuse to ride your new bicycle or motorcycle?  How about a 
nice outing in your new sporty convertible?  Turn these trips into a 
lasting social value by checking or creating local maps for the 
OpenStreetMap organization.  What fun pedaling through the New 
Hampshire countryside with a camera strapped to your head!  (You are 
supposed to visualize something small, not a 40 pound stadium zoom
