This week Ed speaks with Ilya Zverev, the man behind the new OpenStreetMap editor Every Door. Ilya is passionate about micro mapping, and argues there is a need for a tool like his but ultimately the time he spends on editing is as much a need as it is enjoyable. This is not his first OSM tool, and this is not the only editor out there, so what’s unique about Every Door? This editor focuses on things that are usually unmapped, the things that are often overlooked because it takes too long and is too tedious to map them. Ilya and Ed discuss the future of mapping apps and predict more thematic mobile editors will emerge (editors for shops, for runners, etc.). Listen to Ilya explain his passion and vision for a POI editor, and offer advice for those who want to create editor tools of their own.
