One year Open Street Map in an amazing clip

Anders just told me to look at this great video about the Open Street Map project.

It’s very impressive!

It’s showing the development of the OSM project on a rotating globe within the last year.

Here’s short out-take:

An animation showing edits to the project during 2008. OpenStreetMap is a wiki-style map of the world and this animation displays a white flash each time a way is entered or updated. Some edits are a result of a physical local survey by a contributor with a GPS unit and taking notes, other edits are done remotely using aerial photography or out-of-copyright maps, and some are bulk imports of official data.
