Thanks Lyan for the links of hdyc and osmfight.

Hi Mueller, Glad to know that your are incorporating OSM in your
geography syllabus. I also believe that OSM can be spread faster with this.
I am trying same in Bangladesh also, planning for some training in
geography or GIS departments in public universities of Bangladesh. Lets
see. I am wondered to know that some of your students mapping
Kamrangirchar, DHaka !!!! Do you know from Missing Maps Project with HOT,
here our OSM community also mapping Kamrangirchar and Hazaribagh area of
Dhaka. Are your students still mapping here ?
