OpenStreetMap for Perl Developers

50 minutes

Beginner

English 

OpenStreetMap creates and distributes free geographic data for the world. Despite its name, OSM offers much more than a map of streets.

This talk will describe OpenStreetMap's data model, APIs, editing tools and map rendering processes.

After that, we'll explore how Perl developers might use the data model and APIs within their own programs and look at existing parts of OpenStreetMap's toolchain that use Perl.

Attendees should have some experience of programming, ideally with Perl, but the talk assumes no experience of OpenStreetMap or other geographic information systems.
