It is a good news that Apple is considering editing our road network since the aim of the most of other organized projects are not towards the main goal of Openstreetmap. Anyway how are they going to accomplish this? Would they start a local office? Anyway I hope they will respect previous voluntary editors too.
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........
ajith: Wish you all OSM contributors, 2017 a happy new year....

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?

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.
