@fitheach I use OsmAnd~ available for free on F-Droid :)


Is all of OsmAnd Free software? They have a subscription service which: "allows you to get full access to every possible OsmAnd feature". That kind of suggests the Free version is feature limited.

@fitheach the paid version on google play is the full one. This version is the only one available for free on f-froid :flan_thumbs:

I thought that was probably the case.

Does OsmAnd, from f-droid, want access to any of your data?

@fitheach it wants camera, location, microphone and storage access. (I don't know why mic and camera though o_O, I've blocked both of them) @solene

@daniel_bohrer @fitheach I don't know, I'm not a developer of that app.

Some plugins allow making vocal notes and also take pictures to help creating a google street view like service ( Idon't remember the name of the openstreet map equivalent).


@solene @daniel_bohrer @fitheach Mapillary ( mapillary.com/ ) and OpenStreetCam ( openstreetcam.org ) are the 2 “open content” street level imagery services that help .

I don't think the camera app is for that (both have their own apps), but it's for taking a georeferenced photo so that you can add data to yourself later. It doesn't upload the image(s) anyway.
