Aerial imagery provider Spot Image is allowing OSM users to derive
data from selected Spot Image images in France.
The announcement, in French, expresses interest in finding mutual
benefit for Spot Image and OpenStreetMap. As described by
Jean-Francois Faudi, of Spot Image,
At this stage, we are only making a test over France. As
soon as possible, we will try to evaluate the mutual benefits for Spot
Image and OpenStreetMap in order to foster an extended collaboration.
Some of us first became aware of the interest Spot Image has in
OpenStreetMap in June 2010, when Spot Image was announced as Silver
Sponsor of State of the Map.
