Today, we added an additional eight new country-specific Open.MapQuest.* sites that are built on OpenStreetMap data – branching out into select South American countries along with Canada and Finland! Here’s the complete list:
Puerto Rico: open.mapquest.com.pr Portugal: open.mapquest.com.pt Brazil: open.mapquest.com.br
Venezuela: open.mapquest.com.ve Chile: open.mapquest.cl Haiti: open.mapquest.ht
Finland: open.mapquest.fi Canada: open.mapquest.ca
We have one more cool feature that we’ve added specifically for our OSM mappers: a list of places that you’ve clicked on to edit in Potlatch 2 called: My Map Edits. This functionality gives the individual contributor the ability to quickly and easily recall the maps that they contributed to and see how the map data is enriched by those contributions and others in the area.
And finally, on our main U.S. site, open.mapquest.com we are joining in the Super Bowl fun with the addition of the Play-by-Play directions (read more here). The OpenStreetMap community has also been working hard to add the new expanded highway, exit ramps, and other road changes in the area around the Cowboys Stadium. If you happen to live in the area, feel free to join in the fun to help improve and update the map.
