Hi all,

in several countries, cooperation with open streetmap would be warmly welcome - especially where coordinates are missing! Also, they could use combinations of addresses and coordinates to improve their own data - although they might have a license compatibility issue then.

Finally like Maarten suggested the opportunity could be taken to motivate them to make photos too when they are going around anyway!

We have also close relationships with OSM Polska - It is been signed a
formal agreement regarding cooperation two weeks ago.
