Fwd: MEDIA REQUEST/DEADLINE TOMORROW MORNING

Charlotte Wolter
Hello, all,

        I promised that I would answer this request and find out
how they are using OSM.
        It seems the organization is involved in food policy, specifically
providing expertise and technical tools to those involved in food policy
in cities.
        They said they used OSM in a report "because we were discussing
new technology and how it is being used to improve the food system. We
discuss how these types of maps can be used to monitor a variety of
situations, from air pollution to even rates of depression. This helps
individuals become more aware of the environment which they live.
        They also provided their mission statement:
         "
The New York City Food Policy Center at Hunter College develops
intersectoral, innovative and evidence-based solutions to preventing diet-
related diseases and promoting food security in New York and other cities.
The Center works with policy makers, community organizations, advocates
and the public to create healthier, more sustainable food environments and
to use food to promote community and economic development. Through
interdisciplinary research, policy analysis, evaluation and education, we
leverage the expertise and passion of the students, faculty and staff of
Hunter College. The Center aims to make New York a model for smart, fair
food policy."

        I directed them to Learn OSM, because they wanted screen shots,
and Learn OSM has many on its web site.

Hi Charlotte,

Sorry about that! We used Open Street Map in our report because we were discussing new technology and how it is being used to improve the food system. We discuss how these types of maps can be used to monitor a variety of situations, from air pollution to even rates of depression. This helps individuals become more aware of the environment which they live. Does that make more sense?

Best wishes,

Cameron

Cameron,

        I got that from your web site, but how did you use
the OSM photos? Is OpenStreetMap something that your
organization uses regularly? How do you use us?

Cameron,
        I got your email because I'm on the press list for OpenStreetMap (and I'm a retired journalist).
        I think your best bet for high-quality images is our training web site, Learn OSM ( http://www.learnosm.org). All the work there is public domain and free to use.
        Could you tell me more about the Food Policy Center? OpenStreetMap's New York City group is very involved in local projects. They might be able to help with any mapping questions you have or provide support in geographical analysis of food issues. Often, OpenStreetMap organizes what we call mapathons, group mapping sessions, usually around a particular issue.
        Good luck on your current project.
Best wishes,
Charlotte Wolter

Dear OpenStreetMap,
I am a research associate and editor for NYCFoodpolicy.org and for the syndicated health column, Diet Detective. We are working on a story on Health Technology and the Food System, as well as a second report on feeding urban populations (see here for the first report on hunger and tech).
Please send three high-resolution images of your app and/or website by tomorrow morning (Friday 7/7).7). If you are re unable to we understand and will use screenshots instead. Â
Kind regards,
Cameron
