OpenStreetMap receives funding in the Netherlands

OpenStreetMap just announced some great news, that the group in the Netherlands just received 12,000 Euros to support the mapping efforts. While I live in the US and have grown use to grabbing data from any number of sources, I have a friend in Sri Lanka and I am wondering if I could visit him for a couple of months and ‘borrow’ some of his students to work a little in areas of the country…hmmm. Well it will have to wait until I graduate at least…maybe I can just talk him into getting involved 🙂
