Cadastre information

Bonjour j'aimerais savoir si ce serait possible d'avoir des informations sur les parcelles de terrain éventuellement le nom du propriétaire et l'adresse si c'est possible

Не совсем стандартный способ собрать адреску с помощью Vespucci

Posted by keder on 30 April 2017 in Russian (Русский)

Vespucci Мобильный редактор Vespucci имеет ряд преимуществ по сравнению с программами записывающими трек вроде OSMtracker. Так например вы имеете возможность самостоятельно указать точку или контур куда поставить заметку (а может даже теги). На бинговских снимках видны крыши домов, что очень помогает при сборе адрески, есть специальные подложки указывающие ошибки и другую полезную информацию.

Однако мой первый опыт сбора адрески показал что не всё так уж хорошо. Выделение контуров - ужасная мука, точки всё время оказываются под пальцами и разъезжаются чуть проведёшь пальцем и т.д. В результате я придумал небольшой рецепт как сделать сбор адрески удобнее, который, я надеюсь поможет начинающим маперам.

Сперва потребуется небольшая подготовка. Сначала зайдите в настройки и укажите фоновой картой бинг или мапбокс (тут уж что есть, главное чтобы были видны крыши домов). Затем в пункте "Наложение" выберите "OSMInspector: Addresses", это позволит сразу видеть дома без адрески и не тратить время на сбор того что уже есть. Никаких объектов из базы скачивать не нужно (на крайний случай можно скачать какой-нибудь один домик), они будут только мешать. Снимки места которое будете обходить скачайте заранее ибо через медленный мобильный интернет они могут грузится мучительно долго. Теперь при обходе маркер вашего местоположения и цвета и форма крыш помогут сопоставить дом перед вами с домом на снимке. Сделайте долгий тап и создайте точку, выберите адресные теки и укажите только номер дома. Это ускорит нанесение адрески до, буквально, 3-4 тапов. В результате получится что-то вроде того что на скриншоте выше.

Теперь вернувшись домой вы можете открыть JOSM и спокойно проставить номера домов подглядывая в Vespucci.

Данный способ идеально подходит для пеших обходов, поскольку позволяет надёжно сопоставить номер дома с координатами, но в то же время требует концентрации внимания на экране телефона пока вы ставите адрес, и потому не подходит для вело и авто обхода. Ну и конечно данный способ костыльный и некрасивый, но тут уж дело вкуса.

Belarus in Belarusian + bilingual / trilingual / quadrilingual names in Europe

Posted by meijerry on 29 April 2017 in English (English)

Dear All,

I have been in around 35 countries around the world and I noticed Belarus is the only country that appears on Openstreetmap in a different language than on-spot. To be more precise, all names appear in OSM in Russian (Островец, Осиновка, Ошмяны for example), but when you drive there, everything is written in Belarusian (Астравец, Асінаўка, Ашмяны for instance). I've got nothing against Russian language (which is definitely more spoken in Belarus than Belarusian). However, I think we should start ASAP to correct that mistake and make Belarusian village, town and city names the main ones. In some cases even street and public transport names (in Minsk these things appear in Belarusian). The purpose is simple: for instance when you use maps.me (a GPS app that uses OSM), if you drive to Asinaŭka. it appears "Asinaŭka" and, just below, the name in Russian (Оснивока). However, when you arrive to that village, you see "Асінаўка". It is extremely confusing for travelers, especially if they don't read cyrillic.

Another question: multilingual names in Europe. Numerous cities, towns, and villages appear with bilingual names on spot (but on OSM their main names appear only in one language). It would be good to make those names appear as they appear on spot.

How do you think?

Dear Diary

Posted by 3ngineer on 29 April 2017 in English (English)

Sometimes I wonder who really cares about the nitty-gritty details of ways. All that really needs to be mapped is the geometry to show what ways are connected, and what can absolutely not travel on it. By no means am I an expert, but I have a feeling that there's a lot of info that's practically not needed. The ability to add it just makes people fight and unhappy with others' judgement.

About landuses and landcover, in particular landuse=residential

Posted by dieterdreist on 28 April 2017 in English (English)

Today I was asked by another (very active) mapper via email these questions:

We are currently discussing best practices for landuse mapping in Belgium. Some of the problems:

  • do you use multipolygons to avoid overlapping landuse or do you split a residential landuse so you can have smaller landuses ? Or do you just overlay them ? A lot of landuse is already mapped in a rough way, so we typically have large areas of residential landuse.
  • Do you include streets in residential landuse or do you exclude them so one can later add area:highway or landuse=highway ?
  • I'm in favour of landcover to avoid "forests" in gardens. Which landcover proposal do you follow ? (I believe there are 2).
  • what about grass/bushes in towns near highways ?

I wrote some lines how I believe it should be done. Here's a slightly modified version:

Residential landuse

Regarding the residential landuse, I am since almost 10 years advocating to not include roads but end the landuse at the property borders. Not only does it add more detail, because you can clearly distinguish (even without roads), parcelled land and common land, it will also be easier to add landuse=highway, i.e. the land that is legally a road. It just makes no sense from a legal point of view to add streets to the residential landuse (save maybe those areas where the streets are private). I do include driveways though, i.e. "roads" on the properties.

Clearly, public roads are road landuse, so they must not be included in residential, industrial, commercial, retail or other similar landuse.

why do people often use huge polygons including whole settlements in one landuse object?

IMHO the 3 reasons for people to include roads are

  1. lazyness (to draw and to determine the precise border, ...)

  2. OSM standard style is not rendering place areas, so people misuse residential landuse to say: built up area

  3. people hating "gaps" or voids in the map and think it must be "complete", so they connect the landuse to the road and prefer to have it "wrong" rather than "incomplete".

Scale

Of course it also depends on scale. IMHO we should try to map in a high scale, e.g. 1:500 - 1:1000 (because simplifications can be computed at need, while details can't), but if you do your mapping in 1:10.000 and lower you would likely not represent these details and would "include" the roads (actually it wouldn't be discernable whether they are included or not in these scales).

Using multipolygons in landuse mapping

I also advocate to not use multipolygons for built up landuse, if it is not strictly necessary (never met a situation where it was necessary, but it might exist). It just creates unnecessary complexity and deters less experienced mappers, and leads to errors laters. It is not necessary, just make the landuse as small as you like and need. (I think that landuse is a property of the land, I don't see it as a feature, i.e. for mapping a "residential area with a name" = part of a settlement, I suggest to use place, e.g. quarter, neighbourhood. Can even work for industrial areas (their names)). This way, you don't mix stuff and are not forced to ignore parcels with different landuses which are also a part of the settlement part (toponomastic area).

On the other hand, when mapping in rural areas and landuses like farmland, forests and other natural features (scrubs, heath, beaches, ...), multipolygons might come in handy to avoid duplicating long (and complex) ways by reusing them.

Landcover

Regarding landcover, I mostly only use 3 values: trees, sand, grass, although it could be extended by more vegetation and surface types (like bushes or whatever term is correct for these, currently I use natural=scrub for thickly vegetated / unpassable areas and avoid the landcover tag there). I admit as long as it doesn't render I still add stupid forest tags additionally, although it really is stupid ;-) I don't know about 2 landcover proposals, but for trees, sand and grass there isn't much to discuss I think.

Grass and bushes along roads

If they are (legally) part of the road I would see them as landuse=highway, grass can be landcover=grass, bushes are (in my mapping but I believe it is a common agreement) natural=scrub.

Louvre indoor

Posted by thbz on 28 April 2017 in French (Français)

Aujourd'hui j'ai terminé le Louvre. 1 035 objets indoor selon l'indispensable OpenLevelUp. J'ai suivi la spécification Simple Indoor Tagging. Il ne manque que quelques salles fermées pour travaux, et tout ce que j'ai sûrement oublié ici ou là. Je vais donc faire un second passage pour vérifier chaque salle, chaque couloir, chaque entrée, et chaque attribut de chaque objet. Harmoniser la gestion des descriptions, des entrées. Rajouter sans doute des escaliers en ways parce que les areas, ce n'est pas suffisant pour un escalier. Indiquer peut-être les noms de départements.

Rien n'est simple au Louvre : escaliers de trois ou quatre marches avec un arrêt d'ascenseur en haut et un autre en bas, étages superposés mais jamais identiques, fiches descriptives de salles qui suivent des conventions différentes d'un département à l'autre, angles pas forcément droits, vestiges médiévaux, escaliers aux formes ingérables...

Et puis il faudra peut-être se demander à quoi tout cela peut servir. Il y aurait de quoi faire un petit guide sur smartphone.

Mapped in Every Country of the World

Posted by mmahmud on 28 April 2017 in English (English)

28th April, 2017

Well, this was a personal goal of mine to Map in every single country in the World with OpenStreetMap. Well, mapping in every country is easy so I took it upon myself to make at least 1000 changes in every country. So, today finally that goal is achieved.

I mapped in all 197 countries in the World and made at least 1000 changes (Except in Vatican City because that place is too well mapped).

Country list: https://www.countries-ofthe-world.com/all-countries.html

Notes:

Palestine is shown as West Bank and Gaza Strip combined.

New Caledonia and Guadeloupe are states of France.

Western Sahara is part of Morocco.
