Take that, poorly licensed GIS data! We went out to Arlington, VA on Sunday to participate in day two of the DC area mapping party. OpenStreetMap is a community based project that creates and provides free maps to anyone who wants them. Since I had no experience at all with this, but am fairly handy with a GPS and am ambulatory, I took the baby and a couple of friends out for a walk to check on the ground truth of the census data that is used in the US portion of the open street map. We were happy to find some errors! I'm working on correcting them in the very cumbersome JOSM application, and have uploaded some changes already. We also found (and will soon have mapped) a very nice park which Kassidy was happy to explore.
Check out our first GPX trace.
