This is a place to gather examples of uses of openstreetmap in the UK. We will eventually transfer it to our website and then work throught the catalogue trying to develop more detailed case studies covering items like "Why did you choose OSM?" How easy was it to develop your map?" "Would you recommend OSM to friends/other organisations/"

Background to the project is in my diary: http://www.openstreetmap.org/user/davidearl/diary

This is agreat case study for promoting OSM. I've read your diary entries but there are tons of questions I'd like to ask you in order to write this up as a case study. It's probably best done by phone. I'll be in touch offlist to arrange this if that's OK

Alexis I'd like to chat with you if that's OK about some background to this project so that I can write this up as a case study - it looks like a great way we can promote OSM.

Lichfield District Council use OSM on their Open Data Portal, but use Ordnance Survey data on other map-based web pages

Two cycle routing applications using OSM data, that at least started off being UK-specific IIRC: https://cyclestreets.net/ and http://cycle.travel/map

Used to to use googlemaps but recently switched. Might be worth asking them why and how was the experience

Warwickshire county council election website still use OSM.
Winchester welcome walkers use OSM on their walk leaflets.

What about UK based businesses that use OSM but outside of the UK? If the development is done here then I think we should include them as they are covered by our company aims.
I'm thinking MSF UK for example.

Draft looks good. I'd suggest:
- Getting the OSM UK logo on there.
- Reducing to 2 pages.
- Dropping the website stats page image and reducing the "more info" to one main URL.
