Re: [libertarian-349] Freedom and mapping

Sounds like fun, but unfortunately, I have plans for this weekend already...  
I'm sort of familiar with OSM, but have never really gotten into it

As a minor side note, is there some way for a person who doesn't have a GPS 
(me) to tell OSM when there is an error?  I'm not sure what the correct 
mapping should be, but when I looked at our house, they seem to show it as 
being in a park...  We do have a park on the opposite side of the street from 
us, but the OSM map shows the park extending on both sides of the street, 
covering our house and a couple of our neighbors...

Perhaps you could send me a personal message and I can give you more
