OpenStreetMap vs Google Maps

Near where I currently live in Otley is very well mapped by OSM, here is a screenshot.

OSM - Otley

Compare this to google maps (Only when I did this comparison did I notice how much screen space is wasted on the left of the google maps).

My first experience with the OSM online editor was a bit frustrating, not as intuitive as I would have liked but it will get better I am sure. I am looking forward to contributing something more substantial at the weekend. I am going to take some traces near my Mums on Sat and then the WYLUG mapping meet on Sun after a party on Sat night in Chester. It’s good to be busy.
