I'm be pleased to be able to announce a new addition to the tools 
available to support the OpenStreetMap project.

The new help.openstreetmap.org site is a StackOverflow style question 
and answer site where we can curate good answers to the questions people 
ask about how to both use OpenStreetMap and add to OpenStreetMap.

As with StackOverflow users will earn karma which will in turn lead to 
earning rights to help moderate the questions and answers to ensure that 
the result is a useful knowledge base.

I suggest that people start by reading the FAQ which explains how the 
site should be used and what should (and shouldn't) be there. You can 
find the FAQ here:


and then get started asking (and answering) questions here:
