Atlanta To Map Itself
"OpenStreetMap, or OSM, is behind the effort to produce a map more accurate than anything else on the market.
In addition, all the data will be given away free for others to use.
'We aim to map everything from bike paths to emergency phones and police precincts,' said Frank Howell from the Office of Research and Policy Analysis."
Officials are hoping the open source map will inspire the creation of innovative applications and mashups.
