Hi all,

Following his talk at our Face-to-face this week, Andy Mabbett asked me to

Hi Hadley,

It was lovely to see you again on Monday, and to speak to your W3C

I undertook to provide some URLs for the resources mentioned in my talk:

OSM: <http://www.openstreetmap.org/>

OSM wiki: <http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Main_Page>

OSM key descriptions: <http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Category:Keys>

(regarding keys, our Brazilian friends might find
<http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Category:Pt-br:Keys> useful)

OSM mailing lists: <https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Mailing_Lists>
(note the pt-br language list)

JOSM (map editor used as in slides): <http://josm.openstreetmap.de/>

Mapbox: <http://mapbox.com/>

Leaflet.js: <http://leafletjs.com/>

Maperitive: <http://maperitive.net/>

Geofabrik MapCompare: <http://tools.geofabrik.de/mc/>

Overpass API: <http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Overpass_API>

Overpass Turbo: <http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Overpass_turbo>

OpenPlaques: <http://openplaques.org/>

Proposal to use fuzzy matching to add Wikipedia/ Wikidata URIs to
OSM.: <https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/User:Pigsonthewing/Wikipedia>

I also discussed ORCID with some of your colleagues; ORCID (the "Open
research Contributor ID" is a UID for the authors of papers,
standards, etc, rather like a DoI. I urge all of your colleagues to
apply online for one, at <http://orcid.org>.

I found our meeting very thought provoking, and am now involved in a
number of discussions on OSM mailing lists, about improving some of
the issues we discussed. For example, I have formulated a way to show
URL patterns in OSM key documentation
<https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Template:KeyDescription>; you can
see this in use in the template, top right on

Please would you circulate this email to your group's members? And
please circulate details of ORCID to your fellow working group chairs

Best wishes,

Andy Mabbett
