Good overview of what Open Street Map is and what you can do with the data.

Really enjoyed it. Maybe a small section on running tile servers would be a good addition. Would also be interesting to how to set up the mongodb harvesting. But I guess that is a different talk. Overall the content was good and gave a great overview, presented well.

Really great talk on Open Street Map, a nice overview of the topic. And, I got inspired to map a remote place - So that's success! Presented well with good points :)

Really enjoyed both the overview of the open street map project and the practicalities of gathering the data required. A good balance of the technical and the social aspects of this data set

I did not manage to get the slide link down from the last slide, is there any chance that could be added here?

Great talk from Derek, a little ard to hear but I think that was more down to the AV and the venue than anything else. He was also very helpful during the hack day.. WT: "I need to bore you about Open Street Map with a few questions..." DR: "It's not possible to bore me about Open Street Map, go ahead :)"

Thanks for the slide link, really enjoyed the talk, enthusiastic and fluent! Thank you for the insight.
