OpenStreetMap is an Interesting Project

www.openstreetmap.org is an really interesting project, I've been contributing to it for some time, mainly covers Beijing urban and rural area.

Hi! 2 comments (in 1). The html link is invalid, you should probably add http:// in front of it and the site doesn't display Chinese characters on an English Linux version (Russian ones are ok though). Hope it's helpful

Hi Fred, thanks for your comments. I've fixed the wrong URL. For the Chinese display problem, is has nothing to do with your local system, but it's a known bug of OpenStreetMap. To display Chinese characters, you can use the Osmarender layer: clicking the "+" sign at the top-right corner and choose "Osmarender". Or just click this: http://www.openstreetmap.org/?lat=39.906&lon=116.391&zoom=10&layers=0B0FTF

HTH.
