OK, everyone knows I am geek but recently I noted that there was an alternative to Google street map and its available for anyone to load up their own images! I support this type of open data setup so I grabbed an action camera (contour 2+) I had in the bottom drawer and made a start on getting some local area data. The other benefit is that the imagery is available to Open Street Map users which can be especially beneficial for street names, business listings etc.
Here is one example of my imagery – a descent of kunanyi/Mt Wellington in Hobart
