GIS Training and Tutorial Resources: OpenStreetMap
The Book of OSM by Steve CoastOpenStreetMap is the free and open wiki map of the world made by millions of volunteers who#65533;re just like you. Contributors use paper, pens, GPS devices, phones and laptops to capture the world around them (like a street name and location) and then upload it to OSM. The map data is then given away for free, all just like wikipedia.This book contains 15 interviews conducted by OSM founder Steve Coast with the people who were there as the project began and grew. Starting in 2004, the interviews trace how a rag tag collection of volunteers was able to produce a map which compares in quality to maps produced by multi-billion dollar corporations.Learn how such an ambitious project got started and then succeeded at mapping the world, for free!
OpenstreetMap : using and enhancing the free map of the world by Frederik Ramm; Jochen Topf; Steve ChiltonThis book is a comprehensive guide to all aspects of OpenStreetMap, the free map of the world. OpenStreetMap (OSM) is a map of the whole world which can be used and edited freely by everyone. In a Wikipedia-like open community process, thousands of contributors world-wide survey the planet and upload their results to the OpenStreetMap database. This book Introduces you to the OpenStreetMap community, the data model, and the software used in the project. Enables you to use the constantly growing OSM data set and maps in your own projects. Explains in detail how you can help collecting and processing data for OpenStreetMap. If you want to become an OSM "Mapper" then this book is the ideal starting point.
Learning GIS using open source software : an applied guide for geo-spatial analysis by Kakoli Saha; Yngve K. øyenThis book introduces the usage, functionality, and application of data in geographic information systems (GIS) for geo-spatial analysis. It offers knowledge on GIS tools and techniques and explains how they can be applied in real-world project to architects and planners in the Indian and the Greater South Asian context using open-source software. The volume explains concepts on planning and architectural tasks, their data, methods and requirements followed, and includes GIS-related exercises on the same tasks. It takes the reader through the concepts of geo-spatial analysis and its referencing system while quoting examples from India. Further, the content of the book will help the planners involved in preparing GIS-based master planning for cities under the Atal Mission for Rejuvenation and Urban Transformation (AMRUT) scheme (see Glossary for details). A practical guidebook providing a step-by-step guide to learn open source GIS, this book will be useful for students, scholars and professionals from the field of architecture and planning, geography and other spatial sciences, instructors of GIS courses on planning and architecture, urban and regional planners, transport planners, urban design, landscape architects, environmental planners, departments of town and country planning, and development authorities. It will also be useful for anyone interested in the geospatial analysis.
