I encourage you to rapidly go out on your bike and beat the people mapping
at their computer. I know you can be quite fast and would travel wherever
people were copying OS.


My interest from the OS is helping out OSM-dragon places such as Cornwall.
It's a lot easier to get people like my parents adding features if the basic
structure exists (plus they don't have a GPS). They're going down there this
weekend, but sadly I don't think that's enough time for me to add the roads
of the local town in.
