Thank you for your interest in one of the OSM projects.

I think the only way you will be able to complete the project within GSoC
timescales is by using other libraries and integrating them into something
useable, so yes, I think your proposal should explain which libraries you
propose to use to achieve your project targets.

The little 'test' we added to the application is just to show a general
understanding of how OSM works.  I appreciate that it is not directly
relevant to your proposal, but I think it is a good thing to do anyway, we
would also like to see that you have made some improvements to the map by
editing your local area to contribute to the project that way too.
