Atlanta Prepares for "Mapathon"

From the Article:

Atlanta, the capital of the US state of Georgia will soon be the world's most digitally mapped city, according to organisers of a massive "mapathon".

OpenStreetMap, or OSM, is behind the effort to produce a map more accurate than anything else on the market. In addition, all the data will be given away free for others to use. "We aim to map everything from bike paths to emergency phones and police precincts," said Frank Howell from the Office of Research and Policy Analysis.
