EXCELLENT!

OK so to help create maps, I'm think of designing (cobbling together
initially) a gps, and a (water) depth reading output, so in a boat, I 
can begin mapping the near shore environment.

How does open street map data get created and are there existing
open source embedded boards one can buy, install in a car and help
extend/enhance the data collected?  Or, roll your own?

It seem they already have the land methodologies developed, what
about near-shore marine? Any open source software efforts for that
yet?

In the past I did run across some for when you are out in the 
wilderness, but, I did not save the links.....

I just got my account, so I'll be looking into
opensteetmap...
