Exploratory #mapping question:
How would you go about making a (printed) map of your neighbourhood for children? Using only data from #OpenStreetMap would be fine, but an own layer would make it even more fun.
What would you include (maybe add for understanding)? What would you leave out? Would you choose a more "graphic" style, and avoid too much text, maybe increase font size? Are there existing styles for such a map? What tools would you use, to let them participate in the process?
I'm eager to hear your ideas!
