The rebuild of the OSM database for the licence change is still pending

Last call to check your area for data that will be lost
One nice tool for the check is http://cleanmap.poole.ch/
Do you already know MapOSMaotic (http://www.maposmatic.org/) ?
MapOSMatic allows you to create maps for cities with additional street index information
Information about the new release can be found on http://news.maposmatic.org/?p=420
GeoCoder.ca (http://geocoder.ca/)is offering the "Canadian Postal Code Geocoded Database".
The data in this database has been crowdsourced and is published under the "Open Database License (ODbL)"
Now Canada Post sued GeoCoder.ca
For more details see http://geocoder.ca/?sued=1 (scroll down to bottom to see the whole file)
Find some comments on this case in the Blog of Michael Geist http://www.michaelgeist.ca/content/view/6415/125/
I've seen lots of footways not been connected to the rest of the world.
See for example the bridge near Chinook Mall http://www.openstreetmap.org/?lat=50.99 … 8&layers=M
This will not allow routing for pedestrians using OSM data.
Maybe we can improve such things by connecting also these ways.
Have fun mapping
