Another major addition was of course the AND software company donating all
of their map data of the Netherlands to Open Street Map (see below). Next
up, so the AND people stated,  will be full China data (!), and maybe later
other countries too... This news appeared on several media (see eg .below),
but I don't recall seeing it at this forum...

>From http://www.opengeodata.org/?p=223 :

AND donate entire Netherlands to OpenStreetMap

Automotive Navigation Data (AND) is a leading provider of location, routing,
mapping and address management are donating a street network of the entire
Netherlands. Yes, an entire country.

This is basically phenomenal.

We¹ll have our first country complete from this data, which AND and I want
to work with the community to import. This is not least because fantastic
work has already been done in Amsterdam and elsewhere by the Digital
Pioneers supported openstreetmap netherlands community. AND will be at the
State of the Map, and you should be too :-)

Here¹s the press release:
