OpenStreetMap: Top 5 Cities in Canada

I have previously shared my newest obsession and I thought I would showcase some of the amazing work that all of us Canadians have done, as there are some beautiful maps coming together across Canada.

Victoria, British Columbia

Calgary, Alberta

Saskatoon, Saskatchewan

Toronto, Ontario

Halifax, Nova Scotia

What is OpenStreetMap?

For those that don't know, OpenStreetMap aims to create CC-by-sa licensing maps of the entire world, creating the first truly Free set of geographic data that covers the entire world.

How do I get involved in OpenStreetMap?

You don't have to live in Canada to get involved, although you will earn brownie points if you do. If you are lucky and live in a part of the world that has Yahoo Imagery, then all you need is a web browser. For those that don't, you will need a GPS. Regardless, the The Beginner's Guide will get your started.

Is there a Canadian community for OpenStreetMap?

Absolutely. We have begun to build openstreetmap.ca and you can always visit our Wikiproject.
