Does anyone have any traces of Naracoorte is SA lurking around that
haven't been uploaded?
One of my clients regularly buy maps of Naracoorte (and other towns in
the area) from a commercial map supplier for publication in the local
newspapers, and it costs them ~$400 a time. I spent a while giving them
the bible according to OSM, without knowing how well Naracoorte had been
mapped. Sadly, it hasn't even been started.
In my real job, I have a number of clients around australia who regualry
publish maps in the local newspapers and the like, and all of them pay
similar amounts each time for commercial maps. Most of these clients
require rural town maps, and I reckon I could easily convice the
majority to use OSM maps if the data was there (which I reckon would be
a bit of a coup - having OSM visible in a lot of these papers just gets
the word out on the street, so to speak).
I wanted to use Naracoorte as an example, as this client would publish
the maps immediately, and would provide a nice demonstration for the
rest of my clients.
So, if you've got either Naracoorte traces, or local Naracoorte
knowledge in terms of streetnames etc, I'd really appreciate some help :-)
