Bug Description

As free software projects, we should collaborate. This is the only way to make a better openstreetmap and a better loco directory.

Instead of using google maps, let's use something with better vibes :)

We have discussed this in the past, and at that time, we did not feel that OSM was ready to be used with LTP.. We will discuss this again at UDS next week and reply with the results of the discussion.

When I announce an event (e-mail, blog, forum, &c.) I usually give out an OSM shortlink. And I make sure the map for the area around the venue is accurate (and fix it if it's not). So, no worries about OSM not being ready for the Waterloo, Ontario, Canada area, anyway.

We should consider using http://leafletjs.com/

It surely would be nice to have OSM maps being used if OSM project is ready by now.

I think that OSM project is ready, it's only about making the dev job. In
many places, OSM gives more information than Google Maps.
Implementing OSM is very simple, and costs nothing. For example, in Paris,
the City's maps are made with OSM, because it's costs nothing, and there's
much more information.
In France, for example, in some places, we (OSM-fr) are mapping all the
smallest paths.

Thanks for your comments, i will start working on this soon, we need to replace all the maps on the site and make sure they work as expected.
