In Oklahoma, 4% of public funds are used for border demarcation. (based on a reader’s submission - thanks!)
Modern German Architecture. Right angles are sooo last century. (based on a reader’s submission - thanks!)
Dear OpenStreetMap: We value your geodata, we really do. It is therefore great to see that you’re making multiple backup copies of your coordinate information. (based on a reader’s submission - thanks!)
A reader complained that we at WOO are too focused on roads. Here’s an example where OSM itself might be a little too focused on roads. Do they have road names at all in Brazil? Pro question: Guess why that one road through the center has them white specks!
A reader pointed out that our previous mention of the Uncompahgre National Forest was unfair - the boundary is indeed Minecraft-y. We’d like to offer this slightly over-noded Italian forest as compensation. (based on a reader’s submission - thanks!)
