Hy all, I'm looking for to overlay the city map (any city, the city where i live is 100'000 people, small size) with a 'matrix' (column A,B,C,... and rows 1,2,3,... as a datasheet). The final purpose is to interact with any single square of this matrix, for example a square of this matrix that is 10mt x 10mt can be selected by an user. The final aim is to create a web site or an App for smartphones where people can adopt a square that will care of it, cleaning it from the rubbish (that is a problem in my city...). Has this been done form already from someone in the world? how can i do it? (overlay a matrix column/rows) on a map? thanks Alberto

Take a look at HOT (Humanitarian OSM Team) and their OSM Tasking Manager which does a quite similar job.

The OSM Tasking Manager allows multiple users to work collaboratively on a given area with a grid-like map. Users can lock tasks while working on them, unlock tasks afterwards, add comments to tasks, mark tasks as done and review tasks from other users. The tasking manager is open source and available on GitHub.

Have a search for "grid" on this FAQ site ... but not sure whether the results can help you inside a smartphone app.
