User generated maps/gazetteers

November 2, 2006

A slightly random link from e-consultancy.com led me to OpenStreetMap which took me to New Popular Edition Maps and then on to GeoNames. All three are doing interesting things. I love the way GeoNames allows users to edit and improve the quality of their data. Yellowikis needs a map based interface like this to make it easier to get started.
