Hi Paul,

great, that you are going to write a case study!

Yes, in the communications working group I've mentioned this some months
ago, and I've heard a couple of times that people wanted to outreach to
the partners to write such a case study. Until now there hasn't been any
input, yet. And that's the reason why I'm asking on this list for more
help to get good stories on results made using OSM data improved through
HOT's initiatives.

Please help out if you have been doing or you are in contact with
anybody who has created a cool product/result!

BTW, if it would be because of me, I'd make it a (not too tight)
condition, that people who use the data for the good, share their
success story with us :)
