I'm be pleased to be able to announce a new addition to the tools available
to support the OpenStreetMap project.

The new help.openstreetmap.org site is a StackOverflow style question and
answer site where we can curate good answers to the questions people ask
about how to both use OpenStreetMap and add to OpenStreetMap.

As with StackOverflow users will earn karma which will in turn lead to
earning rights to help moderate the questions and answers to ensure that the
result is a useful knowledge base.

I suggest that people start by reading the FAQ which explains how the site
should be used and what should (and shouldn't) be there. You can find the
FAQ here:


and then get started asking (and answering) questions here:
