Open Street Map Is Great Around Here

Sunday, Jan 26, 2020
I just made a small update to a business on Open Street Map and it reminded me of how how great of a resource this truly is. It really has come a long ways since I first saw it and it was pretty useless in any areas I frequented. I would have edited it then but I didn’t have the tools available or the time then. Now I do use it on my GPS and it really hasn’t let me down.

Open Street Map Is Awesome

A few years ago I rediscovered Open Street Map. I first saw it years ago when it was pretty bare here in the Central PA area. What a difference there is now. It’s now pretty complete but there’s still plenty of improvements that can be made and I’ve done my share. It’s easy to update points of interest and I do my best to keep the ones in Mount Joy pretty accurate as places open and close or move.
