Nestoria launches

Nestoria is a sweet UK-based tool for finding property. Not really what I’d usually mention on this blog but they’ve sponsored the initial work on mapstraction, which makes them very cool! You too should think this is cool because work like this allows more development of openstreetmap. I’ll let them explain why it’s a good idea:

Why does Nestoria sponsor Mapstraction? The past year internet users have benefited from an unprecedented level of innovation in online mapping. We’re interested in providing Nestoria users with the best possible user experience. Right now we think that means using Google maps. But in the future that might well mean using maps from someone else, perhaps even the open source mapping service being developed by OpenStreetMap. Mapstraction will give us the greatest flexibility to always provide you, the user, with a compelling mapping service.
