Just to let you know that OpenStreetMap is hiring a plane and will be  
taking aerial photography of Stratford-upon-Avon on this Thursday 10th  
September at 3pm as long as the weather holds good. Is this a first  
for the project??

It is of course a bit of an experiment as none of us are experts in  
aerial photography, but OpenStreetMap should hopefully have some  
excellent photographs available in the public domain soon afterwards.  
We are confident that it will generate some useful results even if we  
learn how to go about it better in future.

JR Peterson will be the photographer and the flight is being paid for  
by ITO World Ltd.

Traveline are also supporting the improvement on Stratford-upon-Avon  
data in advance of the conference and the NaPTAN data for the county  
was imported yesterday. We will be showing off the improved OSM  
mapping and linkages to Traveline at the conference.



Regards,



Peter
