"I am a developer on the project, this small section is just my playground before anything makes it onto the main site." Barry Hunter 2005.

If you have any comments or ideas use the Geograph Forum.

In case you wondering what my interest is in Geograph... Well I've had a facination with maps from an early age, and also have been hacking (not cracking!!) around with computers almost as long, bring into that my minor interest in photography, and Geograph seems the perfect fusion. I feel I've been able to bring quite a bit of experience (and data!) to the project from my work on and sites. Its also been my first forray offically into open source, which after a few hurdles am much enjoying. (for the record, the main stumbling block has been the tidyness of my code ;-)

If you think you can contribute in a similar way please consider becoming a developer or simply you may be interested in using the Geograph API. Thanks for your interest.
