OpenStreetMap contributor Ilya Zverez reports on recent OSM workshops
in Russian classrooms.
Recently there were three mapping lessons in small towns of Perm
region, Russia. It went very well, from collecting data to drawing
maps in Potlatch. At the last meeting they even tried to send a
weather baloon with a camera (but photos were no good because of
strong wind). Here is project page, in Russian, but google-translated:
Photos and reports are in the wiki, also in Russian. One of major TV
channels covered it: http://www.5-tv.ru/news/47596/
Apologies for mis-typing the name of OpenStreetmap contributor, Ilya Zverev in the post above.
