I wan't to present my current research on the 3d geo-modelers community of Google. Until recently geo-modellers would populate Google Earth with models they made in SketchUp. Trough recent technological advances Google is now replacing the work done by geo-modelers with autogenerated content. This has left the geo-modelers community in a place where they cannot offer their skills any more, and basically the community is falling apart. Enter OSM. Maybe the lost geo-modellers can migrate to an OSM-based platform? My technical skills regarding this is rather limited, but I'm looking forward to hear from you. Lasse
I'm a art and design student of the Piet Zwart Institute in Rotterdam. I'm researching crowdsourcing in it's broadest terms, but especially looking critically how it's often used and abused for business and proprietary purposes.
