As interesting as it may sound… I really would like to see a complete North America or US extract. Even though I’m fairly new around here, I think it would be quite useful.
I prefer development, but have been known to not leave the house without my GPS.
But that being said, I prefer coding. I have interests in the code that operates OSM, but with some major hardware restrictions on the server end of things the planet osm is taking FOREVER to import into mysql.
I have started attempting to build a US extract on a recently built server, so we’ll see how that goes. If it appears correct, I’ll try to host it someplace
[sorry if this post could be classified ‘dev’, but I felt it was necessary to toss my name into the US forum to let others know that we are interested in mapping on this side of the pond ]
