I got a phone call from someone who works for a municipality who was 
passed my phone number.  Basically asking from a municipal government 
point of view was there any advantage to the municipality in having 
their municipality mapped in detail in OpenStreetMap.

Off the top of my head businesses etc can provide map of where they are 
located without payment and list their web sites and phone numbers etc.

Is there a web page somewhere that covers this?

It is quite a serious question and I suspect will be used to justify 
some expenditure and effort to help enrich the map.

Thanks John
