Présentation Facil: OpenStreetMap

Posted in

On August 16th, starting at 19:00, at the Centre de recherche informatique de Montréal (CRIM, 550 Sherbrooke W, office 100, near metro Mc Gill), Alistair Boyle will be presenting the OpenStreeMap project, a free editable map of the whole world.

OpenStreetMap allows you to view, edit and use geographical data in a collaborative way from anywhere on Earth. The project was started because most maps you think of as free actually have legal or technical restrictions on their use, holding back people from using them in creative, productive or unexpected ways.
