I'm also "penciling-in" a week of Devon/North Cornwall exploration in the 
weekend of 31 August - 3rd September

The southwest of england has long been a white area on the OSM map of england, 
and anyone wishing to critisize OSM finds it very easy to say "just look at 
devon/cornwall" when illustrating our lack of completeness.

This will probably be a rural mapping event (my aim is to visit as many 
coastal and fishing villages as I can).  

If you prefer urban areas however, there are many including Exeter and Taunton 
that have 

For anyone in the geograph.org.uk website there are many of your "green 
squares" in that area, places with fewer than one Creative Commons photos per 
square kilometer.

Countryside mappers have 692km² of Exmoor to visit - can you create a map 
which lets people navigate this wild area?  More importantly, can you trade 
copiable maps for cream teas at the local shops?


I'm still looking for someone who lives in the area to help organise locations 
and stuff. I chatted at SotM to someone living near there -- could you help 
with suggesting possible venues?
