Summary

OpenStreetMap is a collaborative project, and uses many different resources to allow mappers to communicate with each other. We've looked at most of these in this chapter, including:

  • The main openstreetmap.org website
  • The OpenStreetMap wiki
  • Mailing lists
  • IRC channels
  • The web forum
  • The issue tracker

Whenever you encounter a problem with creating, editing, or using OpenStreetMap data, you should always ask other mappers for guidance, as there may already be an answer, or the problem may be affecting more mappers. Choose which channel suits your personal preferences.
