I also, live a couple of hours from a large metropolitan area and rarely get
to a mapping party. This got me thinking, how about a "live" mapping party
over the internet. We could pick out an area to map, talk on IRC or some
other form of communication, and get one specific area mapped well.
Obviously, there would have to be one or more people in the area to mark up
the buildings and POIs, but any area with relatively high resolution should
be mappable. I know, I know, why don't we spend our time mapping our own
area, but I spend many hours mapping my own area a week and after a while of
getting into it I take a step back and realize I am just acting like a
digitizer with a glazed stare at the screen. :) It would be good to
communicate with other mappers, and get ideas for things we as individuals
are missing while mapping, seeing other people's workflow process, etc. I
think it would be very interesting. Good/bad/horrible idea?
