Slashgeo carries a story today about open source mapping software. They specifically mention three programs — GMap, Roadster and Roadnav. What a great idea! The three programs appear to all utilize public domain TIGER (Topologically Integrated Geographic Encoding and Referencing system) data from the U.S. Census Bureau.
Hmm, wonder how hard it would be to translate these into auto-routing maps that could be transferred to your GPS. I’d love to see the folks at some of the custom GPS mapping message boards (Map Authors, MobileMapper 2, MapCreate Format) take a look at this.
