Crowd Sourced Data It can't be that accurate can it? It can't be that accurate can it? Leigh Hunt
Splice Group Inaugural 2011 ALGIM GIS Symposium What do we mean by Accurate? Spatial accuracy
Attribute accuracy
Timeliness What do we mean by... Source: Haklay 2010 (ii), (attributed to P A J Van Oort, 2006) Sources Haklay 2010 - How Many Volunteers Does it Take to Map an Area Well? The Validaty of Linus' Law to Volunteered Geographic Information

Become part of a larger community
Personal interest
Disatisfaction with traditional model
Having their voice heard
Significant Events What motivates the "Crowd"? http://www.flickr.com/photos/kwl/4116389731 RRRROAR!

4 random 25 sq.km. blocks in London
Buffer widths: Motorway - 8m, A-roads - 5.6m, B-roads - 3.75m
Percentage of tested object that falls within the buffer is evaluated

328km Overlap > 80% (1 in 4 roads >95%, 85.80% South London)
Average positional error trends 11m... 5m for 1... 13 contributors Thackery St Dickens St Station St Data generally accurate where present

Missing roads
Inaccurate roads Factors affecting completeness:
Increase in contributor density tends to greater accuracy Walking Papers First 13 contributors to an area 1 sq.km. in size considerably increase that dataset's positional accuracy Source: Haklay 2010 Source: Haklay 2010 Attributed: Girres and Touya (2010) <1 contributor per sq.km => n contributions
1<3 contributors per sq.km => n x 5...10 contributions
3< contributors per sq.km => n x 10...100 contributions

Competitive? Contributor notices change
Again dependent on no of contributors

Burning Man
Beijing Olympics
Natural Disasters eqviewer.co.nz
... + other sites Majority of OSM roads accurate
A number missing from OSM

Coverage will be increased during the rest of March/April. Lots of tools, of varying functionality, status and ease of use.
