The MapSwipe app allows you to mark buildings and roads on satellite imagery within
just a few seconds by tapping on your smartphone. Thousands of volunteers contributed to
MapSwipe so far and it is just incredible how big the areas are that have been scanned (also see : With one swipe or tap you put a family [...]

The GIScience Research Group at Heidelberg joined the OSGE GeoForAll initiative and network as an Open Source Geospatial Laboratory and Research Center.
GIScience Heidelberg is supporting free and open GI software, open GI standards (OGC), open Geo-Data (e.g. OpenStreetMap and other VGI), open access publication and GIS education in many ways.
This is demonstrated already in [...]

We would like to inform about a new open source tool that allows matching of GPS trajectories to corresponding street segments. The tool implements a simplified version of the algorithm presented by Zhang et al. (2010). It is a JAVA based implementation and has been put under LGPL license. You can access the source code [...]
