Fun with free maps on the free desktop

,----[ Quote ]
| Playing with open map data can be a fun 
| pastime. Creating and editing open data can 
| be not only fun, but also a boost for free 
| data to go along with free software. Whether 
| you want to view open map data or edit it, 
| there's no shortage of applications that run 
| on Linux and work well with OpenStreetMap 
| (OSM) data. Here's a look at some useful 
| mapping applications for displaying and 
| editing open map data on the Linux desktop.


Should You Customize Open Source ERP?

,----[ Quote ]
| I could reinvent the wheel here, but thereâs no 
| point. The best post that I have seen on this 
| comes from my friend, John Henley of Decision 
| Analytics. Henley details some advantages to 
| customizing an application. They include:
|     * Core competencies
|     * Your other front/back-office systems 
|     require it
|     * You want additional fields and/or 
|     different field sizes
|     * Regulatory requirements



How To Organize A Mapping Party

,----[ Quote ]
| We had a mapping party at NIT Calicut
| recently. After the first day of the event I
| shared some ideas to make such mapping
| parties better with GeoHackers team.
| [...]
| Maps are created at this stage. The data we
| have mined are ordered, analyzed, and
| tagged. We need to make sure that all the
| team follows a naming convention or comment.
| The coordinator should watch for over
| marking / mis-marking of the same location.
| Once the data is properly tagged, it is time
| to upload it to the OSM server.
