Open Street Maps
Open Street Map Ireland provides a voice for Open Street Map project on the island of Ireland. There are people contributing all the time, from all walks of life since it was started in 2004. People have contibuted nearly 12 million points of geodata to the current map. It is an open source initiative. The map is constantly being updated by people all over the country.
This is somthing that I could maybe do with my project when it is finshed. They are always looking for up todate information and I could maybe attach my contribution to mapping rural Aglish! This is an initiative that local communities could get involved in and could really spark an interest in peoples’ local areas.
