Hi Dave et al
I look forward to the meetup in Swords.
I was recently approached to see if I was interested in some used OS sheets
for OSM use and said Yes please.

They include over 400 real OS sheets (a small number are copies), of 6"
(75% or so) 25"and few 50". 85%+ out of copyright by print date. Many 1840s
and others 1910s either new or revisions.  Offaly, Sligo, Tipp, Westmeath,
Wexford, Wicklow, Meath, Kilkenny, Limerick, Louth, Kildare, Waterford and
Dublin. Also some townland index sheets.

While the 6inch are more readable than the GSGS scans we already have they
are in effect duplicates. More interesting are the larger scale sheets
particularly in or on the edge of now urban areas. As a trial I took a
photo of the 5 feet = 1 mile 1903 sheet of Taghmon, Wexford and imported it
into JOSM and geo-rectified it in a few minutes using the piclayer plugin.
Worked very well.

I propose bringing a small sample of the sheets next week and some photos
(by camera) that can be experimented with/learnt on if there is any
interest. If those coming are working on a particular county please reply
here and I will try to include some in the samples I bring.

I suggest that we consider offering those still in copyright or those of no
benefit to us first
to the local county Libraries and perhaps then to Local history Societies.
Partly for safe archival reasons but also as an OSM publicity and goodwill
tool.  *Please discuss.*

Looking forward to your opinions and meeting up next week.
