I fail to see the relevance in this and the need to adress anything there. MarjanVan started the discussion here, so I stay.
Maybe you should have a look at this: https://forum.openstreetmap.org/viewtopic.php?id=73739 The discussion speaks for itself. Starting a maproulette isn’t as harmless as it sounds.
According to Steve this is important for him:
- It must look great (display quality)
- It must have great routing (data quality)
- It must be searchable for what you want (geocoding quality)
For routing he probably means MV-routing, that’s where they make their money. Not outdoor navigation.
I’m all for data quality, but routing is just a (tiny) part of that.
P.S. Too bad he removed the copyright notices on the OSM maps in his article.
