OpenStreetMap 101

I presented this short set of slides to some visiting students from the State University of New York in Buffalo, this morning in UCL CASA, as part of a mini-conference the department organised for them. It’s a simple, visual introduction to the project.

Additional notes: Slide 6 is a comparison of OSM, Google and Bing (or Yahoo). In Slide 10, the link is to here (20MB MPG). Slide 18 refers to OpenOrienteeringMap which can be found here. Slide 19 relates to two other visualisations I’ve made, see them here and here – OSM is being used for the background. Slide 20’s screenshots of BestOfOSM show Bern, Gaza City and Berlin Zoo.
