I am working on OpenStreetMap (OSM) semantics, trying to make this big amount of data more useful and manageable. OSM is "the free wiki world map", made voluntarily by citizens; it is very rich on local knowledge but at the same time, very heterogeneous in quality, completeness and attribution. I am looking at semantic issues in these datasets and how to homogenize them. The final goal is to make OSM datasets more interoperable with other geographic information sources.
