[HOT] The JOSM plug-in you might not know you love yet - GeoChat

I am always late to the party, but I just discovered the GeoChat plugin.
It's brilliant. If you use JOSM, you want the GeoChat plug in. Then you
want to ask in the irc channel or on the Mumble server for someone to come
and look at something you are mapping. Then just watch as people show up*
to your spot to look. Move around and follow each other to other parts of
the map if you wondered about something near by. Explore and adventure
where you are mapping with friends or just other mappers.

Want to show a friend or colleague around where you are mapping and what
your mapping looks like or evaluate the imagery with someone? GeoChat is a
perfect way to do that.

Why not get an expert tour or advice with experienced mappers who know the
area and land and can take you on a GeoChat tour of an area explaining the
mapping in the area. This could also be done via presentations where a live
GeoChat evaluation/training goes on.

I look forward to seeing more of you on the ground with GeoChat.

Cheers, Blake







*IRC response times can be slow sometimes so hang out as long as you can,
hopefully it happens pretty fast. You can ask if here is anyone around in
irc that could take a look so you know someone is coming.
