OpenAerialMap: Free Imagery for the World
Schuyler Erle, SimpleGeo, Inc
OpenAerialMap is an effort to produce and Free and Open archive of satellite and aerial imagery spanning the entire world. This talk will cover the origin and motivations of the project; how to access and contribute to OpenAerialMap; and how OSGeo software makes the project possible. I've been talking about this since OSGeo 2005 -- and now it's a reality!
