Hello again,

There is plenty of documentation about OSM and related projects. I could not find any documentation, tough, that is thought to be used as a book. Information is much, but is is scattered in hyperlinks and I have to follow loads of links to put everything together. I did actually found two books, but they are only available on paperback and I would happily avoid to use more sliced trees and to pay S&H costs. I find quite odd that for an avant-garde technology project like this there is not a single e-book available. So probably I am missing something. Is there any OSM documentation available on .ePub format? What I really need is something I can browse and study while I am off-line and on the go. Thanks!

There is an ebook about OpenStreetMap on FLOSS Manuals. It is mostly a beginner's guide, and is available to download as Epub or PDF. OpenStreetMap - FLOSS Manuals

There is also a "Beginning OpenStreetMap" guide on LearnOSM. It is available to download as PDF. LearnOSM

Thanks to both. I will start with the free ones and I'll move over to mister Bennet's eventually.

DISCLAIMER: THIS IS MY BOOK. IF YOU BUY IT, I WILL MAKE MONEY. THIS IS IN NO WAY IMPARTIAL ADVICE.

Actually, the book OpenStreetMap: Be Your Own Cartographer from Packt Publishing is available as a DRM-free ebook, which has the added advantage of being in colour. It's available in a number of electronic formats, including PDF.

Upvoted for excellent use of capital letters and bold font ;)
