It's not a chance that this conference takes place in La Palma de Cervelló since the population is heavily involved with the OpenStreetMap project. Last September, the Software Freedom Day, Celso Gonzalez made a speech and a data collection and editing workshop about OpenStreetMap. At that time the population was only main road and data limits Corine forest, there was nothing else in the entire town. After these events map improved strength, but it was in January 2012 with activities involving local entities and Jaume Figueras when the amount of data increased considerably. These activities were echoed even in a Important television of national emission4,5 i 6. Currently there is much information about La Palma de Cervelló in OpenStreetMap of forest roads and shortcuts, streams, fountains, waste baskets, benches, orchards and allotments, viewpoints ... But the main value of the information it contains are geo-referenced to the dry stone huts (small rural constructions of great natural and cultural value).
Therefore, the talk will attempt Albert Fisas not only explain some of the tricks on how OsmAnd He will also explain how we calculate routes are short-distance (for example, forest roads), how can we use it to guide us through the forest with GPS and offline maps and how to find dry stone huts (or any other object of interest) with the management of the waypoints OsmAnd.
