Question: how can I get the maps from the Maps app to be displayed in Osmand? I mean, look at these two screenshots of the same exact place...
Not only the default Osmand maps look like crap, but they also appear to have caching problems (tiles take some time to be loaded when panning) which are absent in the Maps app. Is there any way to do this?
I wonder if a specialized #OSM editing photo camera app might be useful....

Firefishy, a long time #OpenStreetMap mapper is trying to raise money to buy some scanned in maps of Namibia, to help #OSM mapping. Please consider donating!
Congratulations to our newly elected board members Tobias Knerr and Joost Schouppe! Also big thanks to Peter Barth and Martijn van Exel who are both stepping down after serving 3 years on the board.
Facebook can be a great resource for finding out details about venues for #OpenStreetMap. Many bars/etc have a FB page, it lists details (website, phone, opening hours). You can tell if the venue is still open if there are recent posts.
I am warming to the "contact:*=" tagging scheme (e.g. "contact:website=blah"), rather than bare tags (website=blah).
A data consumer can deduce that something is a "contact" thing without having to know anything about the thing, whereas bare tags require data consumers to know, in advance, all the types first.
Ah well, it looked like we can't go through an #OSMF election without disagreements. Is that good or bad?
