#Marble is a computer globe.
Marble features bookmarks, tours, pathfinding, constellations, and many maps.
Marble is bundled with a topographical map, #OpenStreetMap, and a couple others. But Marble allows for you to download more maps from an easy to use prompt.
Marble also allows for drawing on and annotating the map, enabling education or note taking.
Marble can even predict eclipses with a graphical display of the eclipse's path.
No wonder OSM tile servers got problems lately… it's a DDOS attack

I'm not quite comfortable enough with mapping to update the bus routes, but GPX traces would be good for others, right?
Dealing with #OSM data, hoping to bring some consistency and high-value data.
I live in a multilingual area, where street names must be written in different languages.
Another example of careless editing: fixing the main tag but forgetting the other languages just creates a mess.
If I was good at #electronics I could make this GPS/compass/tilt logger myself, but I'm not there now. I'm willing to pay someone to design/make this thing?
Also, #mapillary really makes me phone hot!
Does anyone else find #mapillary very heavy on the battery usage?
