Situation géographique de TRADEX S.A.

Posted by jaymee126 on 26 March 2015 in French (Français)

Il m'est paru nécessaire de situé sur une carte libre les endroits que je fréquente. Et pour commencer : l'entreprise pour laquelle je boss.

Les services de Tradex S.A. se trouve dans deux bâtiments bien distincts. Ils se trouvent dans la même rue mais distant d'environ 500 mètres. La Direction Générale est bien situé sur la carte. Il ne reste plus que le deuxième bâtiment qui abrite la Direction Commerciale en particulier.

Недельное задание 2: статистика

Posted by edward17 on 25 March 2015 in Russian (Русский)

На прошлой неделе по инициативе UkrainianZombie тематическим заданием было исправление ошибок, найденных плагином Quality Assurance Tool, в Одесской, Николаевской и Херсонской областях.

Красивых цифр на этот раз не так много, потому что я не знаю, как посчитать количество ошибок в KeepRight. Если кто-то знает, пожалуйста, напишите в комментариях.

Итак, приняли участие 5 пользователей, которые отправили 16 пакетов правок и внесли более 3000 правок (3029, если быть точным).

Пока база ошибок KeepRight не обновилась, можете посмотреть местность и оценить количество исправленных ошибок здесь.

Примечательно, что наименьшая активность - в Николаевской области: там был сделан всего один пакет правок.

на этой неделе приглашаю помапить железные дороги: тема на форуме.

Hettings Mose - hvilken vej strømmer vandet?

Posted by blecourt on 25 March 2015 in Danish (Dansk)

Jeg har skrevet et blogindlæg om mit seneste feltarbejde - et besøg til Hettings Mose ved Ganløse Eged. Her er et vandløb, hvor jeg havde min tvivl om strømningsretningen i OpenStreetMap.

Blogindlægget kommer desuden en tur forbi Mapillary og de Frie Grunddata fra Geodatastyrelsen, herunder et datasæt med strømningsveje.

Counting cross-border roads

Posted by Julien Brault on 25 March 2015 in French (Français)

Hi,

I would like to count the number of roads crossing a national border in Europe. Obviously this would take a long time to do by hand. Do any of you know of a way to do this in some kind of automated way ? Or know any trail which could show me how to do it ? With OpenStreetMap or through other ways ?

Thanking you in advance,

Julien Brault

Brasil espelha o Google Maps

Posted by JP Nunes on 25 March 2015 in Brazilian Portuguese (Português do Brasil)

Olá a todos, Essa é a minha primeira postagem no diário visto que prefiro ocupar meu tempo livre traçando pontos aqui no Rio Grande do Sul, principalmente na cidade de Santa Maria. Não é a primeira vez que vejo isso, mas desta vez resolvi postar. Observando o itinerário de uma linha afixada numa folha A4 com uma imagem de satélite do Google Earth dentro de um ônibus observei que ao anunciar o itinerário modificado de uma linha eles chamam a "Estrada Eduardo Duarte" de "Estrada Antônio Inácio de Ávila". Isso é um erro do Google Maps (talvez feito pelos próprios editores do Google MapMaker) e de onde muio provavelmente obtiveram o nome da rua. Uma que depois que conheci o OSM tenho abolido Google Maps da minha vida. Mas fico imaginando o quanto as pessoas são influenciadas pelo Google Maps de tal forma que as inverdades da Google se tornam verdade. Empresas multibilionárias fazem a verdade do mundo. Quando ouço alguém dizer "Ela se separou mas ainda tá com o sobrenome do marido no face", brinco: "Claro. Mudando o nome no Face tá resolvido. Que importa mudar os documentos?!?!?!". Assim é o Google Maps... o que importa se uma rua tem um nome (muitas vezes oficial determinada por lei) se vem "O Mapa" e diz que é outro nome?!?!?! Não vou fazer aqui a caveiro do Google e do Facebook, até porque se estão no topo é porque merecem (ou não!). Mas as pessoas tem que parar para refletir nas versões de mundo do Google Maps e usar alternativas como esse magnífico projeto que é o OpenStreetMap. O mundo precisa do OpenStreetMap!!!! Como não posso mudar o mundo. Aqui sigo eu detalhando a cidade onde moro, um trabalho de formiguinha mas certo que estou fazendo a minha parte para um mundo melhor...

Charlotte North Carolina

Posted by botdidier2020 on 25 March 2015 in French (Français)

Il y a plusieurs milliers de nodes orphelins a Charlotte en Caroline du Nord. J'ai entrepris d'ajouter les ways manquants avec fusion des noeuds orphelins existants avec josm. J'effectue cette "mise a jour" par zone (il y en a 15). Apres j'effacerais les nodes orphelins restants. C'est un travail de fourmi que j'estime a un mois ?

Germanwings Flight 9525 response

Posted by Amaroussi on 24 March 2015 in English (English)

Vlad and I have quickly rushed to the location of the crash. We are adding in, with available compatible sources, new details to the crash zone in order to help people who use OpenStreetMap know more about the area, and to advise of any features and landforms that may affect the search and rescue in the next few days.

Please join in to help us.

Our thoughts are for the friends and family of all those on board Germanwings flight 9525.

Tumuc-Humac, the mountains range that does not exist

Posted by Pieren on 24 March 2015 in English (English)

I found this interesting article (in French) from a famous online newspaper (lemonde.fr) about a high mountains range, called "Tumuc-Humac", which was supposed to be found between south of the French Guiana and north of Brazil. The article explains that the high mountains do not exist. It's a myth, beginning in 1758 when a Spanish expedition mentionned a mountain called "Tumunucuraque" for the first time... in the today's Venezuela ! But any way, many other expedition went to this region, between French Guiana and Brazil, searching the high mountains, unknown by the local tribes, but possibly to find the famous Eldorado city. This region was a blank map for a long time, being difficult to access (no navigable rivers). At the end of the 19th c., two French explorers separatly validated the mountains range but we know today that their reports were over-exaggerating the high mountains which are in reality only small hills or "inselbergs" (or "monadnock") (btw, one of the explorer was killed by a local tribe, so the mapping party wasn't easy anyway). But the myth of the "Tumuc-Humac" mountains has continued and the name of the mountains range can be found in many maps. And today, Brazil has named a national park "Tumucumaque". But in the last half century, historians and geographers shattered the myth of a high mountains range and their discovery story.
And what about OSM ? When we search the name "Tumuc-Humac", we find one street in the French Guiana capital. No mountains between French Guiana and Brazil in OSM. Not a surprise since the area is almost blank, the region is still very wild and difficult to access, a funny location for a mapping party.
But OSM "search" returns also geonames with one "Tumuc-Humac Mountains" ! Surprisingly, wikipedia provides an article about the Tumuk Humak Mountains but doesn't say anything about the story and the myth about the high mountains range :

"The Tumuk Humak Mountains (Dutch: Toemoek-Hoemakgebergte, Portuguese: Serra do Tumucumaque, French: Monts Tumuc Humac) are a mountain range in South America, stretching about 120 kilometers (75 mi) east–west in the border area between Brazil in the south and Suriname and French Guiana in the north. In the language of the Apalam and Wayana peoples, Tumucumaque means "the mountain rock symbolizing the struggle between the shaman and the spirits".[1] The range is very remote and almost inaccessible."

True, it is so inaccessible that even after 50 years of shattering the myth, the name is still official and designates today an area of small hills (500 to 600 meters), far away from the original story of high mountains range possibly hiding a mysterious & ancient civilization.

Declaration of Conflicts

Posted by Amaroussi on 24 March 2015 in English (English)

Quite recently I've noticed blog entries titled "Declaration of Conflicts" on my RSS feed. I hope that OpenStreetMap mappers aren't going into war with each other – that would be terrible, especially as we have done so much to date!

Der Stadtplandienst mit neuer Technik und OpenStreetMap ist online

Posted by Stadt Troisdorf_gp on 24 March 2015 in German (Deutsch)

Die Stadt Troisdorf hat ihren Stadtplandienst auf Mapbender 3 aufgerüstet: bisher kommt das neue Design und die neue Handhabung gut an!

Hier eine Pressemitteilung der Stadt Troisdorf zum neuen Stadtplandienst

Aber nicht nur optisch hat sich der Stadtplandienst verbessert, auch unser Datenangebot ist umfangreicher geworden. Besonders stolz sind wir dabei, endlich einen eigenen WMS aus OpenStreetMap-Daten einbinden zu können. Außerdem gibt es bereits einen weiteren Dienst, der verschiedene POI aus OSM-Daten visualisiert und die nächsten OSM-Projekte liegen bereits in der Schublade.

Einfach mal reinschauen: Stadtplandienst Troisdorf
