Reviews

“This academic title fulfills its promise of an up-to-date university summary of related ‘experiences, research, and applications.’ It is an edited text by academics specifically focused on the use of OpenStreetMap in the geographical information sciences. … This text is excellent for an academic research audience. … it has excellent references and specific thoughts, which together should indeed stimulate further research by the intended audience.” (David Bellin, Computing Reviews, January, 2016)
