    Do you mind if I copy your maps and re-enter the data into the OpenStreetMap project? (

    Maybe I could alter your Google overlay to work with OpenLayers too. I think I just need your permission and an assurance that the data was collected by yourself and not copied from anywhere else.


    PS I live in Korea but I didn’t know of anything like this other than Yongsan. Great report!

      Sure Andrew, the source (Inkscape SVG, open source drawing app) is on the wiki, use it how you like. It is licensed CC BY-SA, but you are free to you however you want with OpenStreetMap (public domain), same with the google layers….with one exception. The description of the Hacker Space Seoul location is taken from their website (and not really correct, there’s no apple sign at all).

        Thanks. I have added hackerspaceseoul:

        Very shortly the name will be added to the name lookup database, so anyone can type it in and find the place. The subway stations are already present, so they make it easy to find too.

        세운상가 (Sae Woon Shopping Centre) was already present (it’s Building A on your map). Unfortunately OSM in Korea is not complete, so there is a lot to do before I can add the rest.

    Oh man this makes me want to move there even more. If only I could find a job out there.
