As an aside, I've heard at a conference that the amount of data in the
OpenStreetMap database per capita in a country is proportional to the
per capita income  of the country.
I wonder if there is an inverse relationship. For example, if we take a
country and map it exhaustively and extremely well, increasing by this
the amount of the OSM data for it. Will it increase the per capita income?
I cannot be sure, but in principle in could, as a good readily available
map favors economic activity. And if it were the case, the OSM mapping
could be taught to millions of pupils and students as part of curriculum.
