I would like to offer my services doing mapping work for the Open Street Map project.  I have done quite a bit of work for the project already and as such am able to map and properly tag almost anything that is visible from the satellite photos.  For a fee I will map any area of the world that has aerial photography available.  The price would be dependant on what you would like mapped but it wouldn't be very much in terms of a per hour fee.  Below I have posted some links to work I have previously done for the project so you can see what can be done and approximately what quality of work you can expect to recieve for the area you request mapping for.  I can map anything you can see in the imagery available from the satellite photos at Yahoo maps or Bing maps.  I will have the rest of the week available to work on this project full time.

I think this is a good way to help both the Open Street Map project as well as the bitcoin economy.  If others would like to offer their services in a similar fashion make a post in this thread containing your OSM username as well as links to some examples of your work and prices like I have provided and I will try to edit this post to keep all the current offers in the first post of this thread.

I have actually used the services by Andrew Buck so that's the reason I'm waking this thread up from the dead to express what I think.

This is a sample, quick link http://osm.org/go/xbydY_uWH- ,:
The work done are the buildings.
I offered ~0.01(that was the conversion rate that was close to 1$ USD) BTC for this, and I liked the result. That's about it.  Smiley

There may still be hope for the 1st decentralized cryptocurrency which is Bitcoin. How to approach different subjects is key to progress.

Just posting a quick note here to say that I have done a bit more mapping in the area linked above and am happy to do more.  The user tjohej who asked me to map there asked me to map that town as there is a bar on the north side there that accepts payment in bitcoin.

There is a site http://coinmap.org/ which shows the places which accept bitcoin on a nice draggable map (using openstreetmap as the basemap).  The coinmap site currently is showing 46 businesses which accept BTC but there are probably a lot more to add.  If people want to add more places to the map they can do so themselves, by editing openstreetmap directly (there is a link on the coinmap site, you just create a username and then start editing like you would a wiki), or you can add a 'note' on openstreetmap if you don't want to bother with editing yourself.  http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Notes

The mapping I did around the bitcoin accepting bar was done for the purposes of putting the bar in 'context' of its surroundings.  My fee for mapping that town to the level seen on the map was 2 dollars, to give you a sense of what you will get for your money (1 dollar for the buildings in the main cluster, and another dollar for cleaning up the roads and doing all the surrounding buildings).  If people have a business of their own they want shown on the map, or want more mapping done around one of the already listed bitcoin accepting places, just let me know.  Of course I can do any other kind of mapping as well, anything I can see in the satellite imagery I can put on the map (roads, buildings, parks, etc).  If you know a business that accepts BTC I will help you put it on the map for free, as this is pretty easy to do, I will only charge for more detailed mapping like tracing buildings, etc.

Hopefully there will be some interest in this offer as I think it is good for both bitcoin and OpenStreetMap.  Both are projects that are worthy of support.

I paid a little more and then this was done as you can see, quick link to osm map: http://osm.org/go/xbydaUMVE-
This is what I wanted. That the surroundings are shown around Carena(which accepts BTC  Cheesy) with buildings. The coastline looks a bit off but that's only because that in OpenStreetMap there's a huge latency until they render the changes in coastline data to be shown on the map.

I added the correct position of Carena with the help of the owners so that part I managed myself  Cool

There's more work that I've asked and that has been done by Andrew near the Cakes and Cups Bakery. I'll wait until it renders to show what was done there.  Wink
