This is a list of mapping resources gathered during a workshop at NID, Paldi, in August 2014. Updated in March 2016.
OpenStreetMap – Contribute and download map data.
Java OpenStreetMap Editor (JOSM Editor) – A desktop application to work with data downloaded from OpenStreetMap and/or collected from GPS devices. Can be used to clean and manage map data, as well as to upload that to OpenStreetMap.
Field Papers – A tool to print out parts of OpenStreetMap, add data to it by hand (using black pen), and to upload a scanned/photographed copy of it that gets automatically geo-referenced and aligned into OpenStreetMap. The hand-written data, however, would require manual digitisation.
Maperitive – Desktop application to download data from OpenStreetMap in PNG and SVG formats.
Google Earth – Trace over satellite imagery to create map data, save it as .KML, convert it to .SVG and use it in design softwares.
GPS Visualizer – Convert .KML files (and more) to .SVG (and more).
