OSM Super-Strength Export. Awesome new feature on OpenStreetMap: you can browse to anywhere on the map, then hit “export” and download a rendered bitmap or vector (PDF and SVG) image of the currently displayed map—and because it’s OSM there’s no watermark and a very liberal usage license. # 22nd April 2008, 9:56 am

i am near (via) Inspired by wikinear.com and powered by FireEagle, currently just showing nearby pubs from OpenStreetMap but with more stuff planned. I love the URL scheme—pubs.iamnear.net. # 4th April 2008, 7:53 am

OpenStreetMap on the iPhone! Via an ingenious hack. The Google Maps iPhone client caches downloaded tiles using SQLite—to display your own custom tiles, you just need to dump them straight in to the “cache”. # 22nd October 2007, 3:30 pm

Yahoo! aerial imagery in OpenStreetMap. Tracing is allowed. This should speed things up an awful lot. # 4th December 2006, 1:17 pm
