One of my favorite Google Map Apps Adds OSM!
I guess I missed the addition (late August 2009) because I’d just finished my ultra training. I used Google Maps Pedometer regularly until then to plan running routes for the Somerville Road Runners Unofficial Saturday Morning Davis Square Long Runs. We’d go anywhere from 10 to 20+ miles.
This weekend were getting together for our first run after our fall ultras/marathons. (We are working toward the very fun Mill Cities Relay in December.) When I went to use Google Maps Pedometer I saw the additional OSM option next to the Terrain button. A quick look showed that the developer added OSM via the CloudMade API in part because users could add updates directly and see them appear in weeks. Interestingly, Googlehas since them switched to its own data since then, with ideally, a 30 day turn around on corrections.
I think this is an interested approach for developers in general who are wary of the quality of the current US Google data.
