Okay this started as an idea on the BitLaw thread but considering it’ll probably become it’s own project I’m creating a new thread for it.
We started with the notion of using openstreetmaps but considering how incomplete it is that really isn’t going to work. And having good maps and map making tools is something that would benefit everyone beyond the BitLaw project anyway so I’m throwing this out there.
We need a user interface that’s easy to use but efficient and effective. The app should be crossplatform and hardware compatible (that is both desktop and mobile compatible). I’m thinking it would be handy to be able to upload pictures and videos of places as well as GPS coordinates from one’s mobile device. Not to mention keep all this data secure on safe. Also have an easy to use topagraphical map editor, you know, drag and drop easy. Perhaps one could even use satilite or arial photos as background images when creating the maps if one had them available. Also tools for importing and exporting maps to and from other formats like doc, odf, svg, jpg, xcf and so on.
