“Der Spiegel” reports on OpenStreetMap

Publications, such as The Economist, have been mentioning OpenStreetMap in articles that deal with geography and maps. However, few have had a dedicated article about it, and even fewer of them got it right (no, OpenStreetMap is not about communism 🙂 ).

It’s nice to see one of the big German periodicals having an Article (in German), that explains OpenStreetMap and gets it about right. I guess part of the credit for this goes to Hanno Böck, whom the journalists accompanied.

UPDATE:German “Bildzeitung”, the biggest (not best) German daily has a report on OpenStreetMap too.
