Citizen Mapping

Posted by josediacono @ 6:21 pm under Uncategorized

Ross Johnson sent me this fascinating article from the Los Angeles Times about openstreetmap. Crowdsourcing maps is becoming a mainstream social activity. With Google  Maps doing it soon (as mentioned in this article),  openstreetmap and even crowdsourcing through mobile games how does a user decide where to source data from? Can we talk in terms of a  single authoritative source anymore?
