For those moments when you're craving a high-quality GIS dataset but everything is too expensive, OpenStreetMap is a free, community driven Open Data solution.

Do you really need access to extortionately priced APIs for what you want to do? Don't we already have a leading combo of database and GIS backend in PostgreSQL and PostGIS?

This talk explores use cases and what you can do with OpenStreetMap data in PostgreSQL, as well as what tools and resources you need, and how to load, update and search the data.

Examples of nifty things a "non-GIS-person" can do with these tools will be provided!
