Why haven't I ever heard of OSM before? How long has it been operating? (I could find no "about" info on their site.) The domain was registered in August 2004, but I wonder how long people have been submitting data. Just curious, because they have a good level of detail for some cities. (See Portland, OR for instance.) If I've never heard of it, how many others haven't, who could potentially contribute GPS traces?
Now, perhaps I need to start doing traces around San Antonio! :-)
M$ Streets & Trips is the only big reason I have a Windows partition on my laptop. Replacing it with a Linux solution would be *awesome*. Of course, Linux also needs to improve slightly on power usage and suspend/resume before it will be as ideal as Windows. :(
I hadn't heard of Marble before, either. Good stuff!
