Image of the Week: OpenStreetMap in mayor campaign


The recent municipal election cycle in Toronto included OpenStreetMap.
Mayoral candidate, Sarah Thomson had a bicycle policy as part of her
platform. That policy, called Bike City was illustrated with two
images of planned bicycle infrastructure on OpenStreetMap base maps
with proper license and attribution.

Ms. Thomson did not win the election. You can see the OSM images in
context on her old campaign page.

This is a Featured image, which means that it has been identified as
one of the best examples of OpenStreetMap mapping, or that it provides
a useful illustration of the OpenStreetMap project.

If you know another image of similar quality, you can nominate it at

    Shame it didn’t win the election for her (should’ve used OpenCycleMap?), but it surely must have helped. The first UK politician to use OpenStreetMap has my vote! 🙂
