With the upcoming license change, we'll be able to use OpenStreetMap data in the official FlightGear scenery. Some of the most interesting things to import from OpenStreetMap are shared objects (generic models like windturbines, power lines, water towers).
This article lists open questions, ideas and planes related to the import process.
- Should we remove shared objects that are currently in the database, if they are not present in OpenStreetMap?
