Hi OSM-Japan mappers,

I think the following answer of Frederic on OSM-talk list could be
interesting for you, so I forward to the Japanese list as well.

It says, that the English OSM book has an appendix with country-specific OSM
information. The appendix is under CC-BY-SA and available here:

   - http://www.openstreetmap.info/content/mapping_the_world.pdf

The part about Japan is very short, but Japanese community could

   1. make a Japanese translation of the appendix
   2. add more details about tagging/mapping in Japan
   (I can translate to English later, so it might be then part of the next
   book release then)

The first English edition is based largely on the 3rd German edition. But
since it was proof-read by people who were not involved in the German book,
it does do some things a little differently. The most visible differences

* English version has an appendix with country-specific OSM information
about many countries. This appendix is under CC-BY-SA and available as PDF (
http://www.openstreetmap.info/content/mapping_the_world.pdf) and OpenOffice
document (
People are welcome to edit it and we might include updated versions in later

* English version has 2 or 3 additional screen shots in the editor chapters,
and discusses Potlatch before JOSM rather than after.

* English version has a more detailed and illustrated Mapnik style example
(example source downloadable here:

But apart from that the changes are negligible. We changed examples and
illustrations to better fit the international audience, added in a few tags
- that's all I remember.
