Why is Open Street Map Brilliant?

PCPRO author Jonathan Bray explains his comment:« The OpenStreetmap is a venture, started in 2004 by Steve Coast, similar to Wikipedia, only with maps. »

« I remember looking at it three years ago and being distinctly unimpressed at the level of detail. But, it’s improved beyond recognition, with maps of London, in particular, that are just as detailed, if not more so, than Google maps. And as time goes on, its accuracy and usefulness can only increase » But the is more to Open Street Map than you think.
