Meeting Dieterdreist, meeting end users

This afternoon I’ve met Dieterdreist (and his great mapping bike ;)) to discuss about OSM in general, the state of Rome’s map and another little brainstorming about my project’s usability.

After a drink in a bar under the heavy rain, we used some bar’s towels to draw some mockups about the project’s GUI interface. We had also talked a bit about the object model behind all the functionalities, that should meet Osmarender’s great ruling managing, giving a simple and beautiful interface to end users.

He was agree about my idea on faceting OSM features and gave me also a hint about letting end users manage all zoom levels colors with the same interface at the same time, with cool features to reduce the effort and time the end user would spend in the setup.

More on that later…!
