One long-time favourite program for editing OpenStreetMap is Potlatch2. Lead developer and maintainer, Richard Fairhurst has announced two new features for Potlatch2 recently. Have a look.
- Read Richard Fairhurst's feature announcements:
- Support for the editor imagery index, and other changes to simplify editing tasks.
- Dual imagery, allows reference to two different image sources at the same time.
Perhaps it is time to start posting more tutorials for Potlatch2?
Code sprints and hack weekends
Richard says that he coded much of this at a London OpenStreetMap Hack Weekend last year. That's just one more example of the benefit of periodic OpenStreetMap developer events. London still appears to be the global leader with hack weekends about twice a year.
Many thanks to Richard Fairhurst for his many contributions to OpenStreetMap since near the beginning of (OSM) time.
