Hardly defensive.If anything a mild form of the opposite.
I'm trying to sell OSM as a valid alternative /now/, which It is. In
fact as an ancillary base map it exceeds Google in detail & accuracy.
Many business locations are based on both vague postcode data & a
particularly dizzy game of 'pin the tale on the donkey'.
Even KFC have seen the light: kfc.co.uk/find-us/
<http://t.co/GF1hlXudgO> (for the base layer, they appear to be using
postcodes to pin their shops)
I've asked if they'll be releasing their SAP database under an open
license & she's checking.
