Myself and Sadeepa participated in the 2nd OSGeomeeting at the Auditorium of Department of Town & Country Planning of University of Moratuwa on 15th Nov, 2017. We were given an opportunity to make a 45min presentation on Openstreetmap to the participants too.
These days government is focusing on GPS maps for rapid demarcation of electoral boundaries. Initially as everyone used to be, they have focused on google maps . Meanwhile I proposed Mr. Suthakaran of DMC to reach respective people and explain the capabilities of OSM and convince them. If he can do it, it will be a great event for OSM Sri Lanka since it draws the government attention.
Today I noticed OSM people have added "2 Digital globe image layers" in addition to the currently available Bing and Mapbox layers for our country. I think this event will be a land mark for OSM community in Sri Lanka.
I am delighted to see the fresh satellite images around the Nikaveratiya, Giriulla and Veyangoda area. You can see those new image layer by switching to 'mapbox' from Bing Images. I am sure Robert has done a great job for this achievement. Thank you Robert, Thilina, Sadeepa and all others who contributed to get this done........
Location sharing means like viber or skype location sharing or sending current coordinates ? Can you explain more
Thanks Thilina, I have no experience with neither Viber nor Skype. But I meant here is the thing we do with Google Maps. It allows us to send the location (where we are) by a dropped pin using SMS and the recipient can open it with Google maps where it shows the route the location of the sender.
This is a great feature since we can ask someone to come to a place which we are also not much familiar with.
Is there anyway to share a location by osm based apps in an Android phone and open the same by same app?
Thilina: its great that you can post some information and detais of this event in forum.

wickum: Any new map releases for Navitel ?

Thilina: need to check with sadeepa, he is the navitel master

ajith: Dear Wickum and most other members, What is the big deal about the new map compiling date unless the map is not updated by us? Please actively participate in map updating otherwise you get nothing but "houses" marked by DMC.

Thilina: once i used this app . is map updates comes regulary?
Jun 2, 2017 20:11:07 GMT 5.5
ajith: No previous experience with this app. We have to assume that it gets updated frequently, since I noticed some features I added recently are reflected in the map. The beauty is this app's getting up is very quick than most others.
