Meeting Dieterdreist, meeting end users

Posted in GSoC tagged , , , at 11:29 pm by fadinlight

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…!

Now that I’m online again, I’ve seen what’s changed in the wiki (6 suggestions) and in the blog (1 comment) these days… so this post is dedicated to Dieterdreist! I would like to thank you very much for your contributions, encouragement and help during these weeks.

I’ve sent you an email for some talking about your suggestions, and I’ll do my best to include them in the project as soon as possible!

So, hope to see you soon when I’ll come back in Rome… for another great mapping party! 🙂
