More a "fringe" OSM facility, and countryside orientated only, but...
Part of what I'm working on with Freemap (www.free-map.org.uk) is
developing mobile software (Freemap Mobile, see post a few days ago) to
allow people to take photos of countryside locations. These could be just
for interest, but also for direction finding, e.g. if you're out in the
country and get lost, you can fire up the app on your phone and look at a
(possibly annotated) photo of where you're supposed to be.
