I am new to the developers list so lemme first introduce myself.
My name is Yarik. I am 24. Study Digital Media at HS Bremen /
Bremerhaven. The main topic of my studies are location based
mobile games (like Foursquare). Currently I am writing my thesis
about landmark identification using these sort of games.
I am considering myself more of a programmer, therefore
development of osm interests me for quite a long time. But SoC
actually did the magic kick and led me to the page with
Checking those ideas out I have found an idea to "Develop a
Simple Mapping Tool for Mobile Phones". Mostly because of rich
previous experience, I find it very interesting and would love
to work on a tool like that within our outside of the SoC.
Unfortunately I'm a newbie to osm and therefore I cannot judge
myself the importance of this sort of tool for the osm
community. Do we really need it? I have seen similar efforts
from the last SoC.
Did they fail? Does it need to be further developed?
I have also seen several other tools with similar functionality.
How do you think does it make sense to keep up with the
investigation of those and submitting the solution idea?
