HOT mapping with iD made a little bit smoother - pre-fill changeset comments

Posted by mcld on 25 October 2014 in English (English)

When we run mapping parties as part of the HOT work, we see lots and lots of newcomers mapping for the first time. Increasingly we're getting them using iD which is very easy for them to get started with.

One little issue I noticed in sessions is that for HOT we ask people to use very specific changeset comments - essentially to "tag" the changesets as belonging to a particular labelled task. It was very easy for people to spend half an hour mapping and after half an hour have no memory of what we said about copying-and-pasting a specific comment. Workflow problem!

Now, the team who create the iD editor kindly added my feature request which means that the HOT Tasking Manager can now "pre-fill" the changeset comment in the iD editor. So no need to copy and paste, it should be there when you click through from the Tasking Manager.

What does this mean? It means that in future, HOT mappers using iD will not need any reminding about what to put in the comment box! Easier mapping, easier training, more consistent changeset comments.

Thanks everyone who helped put this through.

(P.S. There is one little technical niggle to resolve - if the comment contains an equals sign then the pre-fill doesn't work on firefox. Hopefully sorted soon.)

Personal benefits of contributing to OSM

Posted by bdhurkett on 25 October 2014 in English (English)

The big goal of OpenStreetMap and the various themed projects is to provide a free & editable map of the world, or something like that, which is great (and so is the progress). But altruism isn't the only reason I've found myself continuing to edit and contribute for the last 18 months or so.

Exercise

I suppose this is dependent on how and where you're mapping. WIth the streets and major items filled out in my local area, I've moved on to the smaller things like addresses and sidewalks and even benches and picnic tables. That sort of stuff can't really be done at typical driving speed, and it's a lot more relaxing to just go for a stroll with a camera or notepad. I don't know if it's made a huge difference in terms of activity, but it sure beats watching TV on the couch. And it makes for good motivation - sometimes I can't be bothered walking around the block a few times, but who knows what might be on an unseen street! Which brings me to another benefit...

Exploration & Awareness

Generally if I went somewhere in the past I wouldn't dawdle - the journey was just time to kill until I got to the destination. Now though, even when I'm not directly mapping I'm more likely to take a different route, or see what's down that side-street I've driven past hundreds of times but never actually needed to traverse, or pull over and take a look at the view instead of glancing out the car window. And though I'm still happy to let my mind wander on a good relaxing walk, I generally pay more attention to my surroundings, whether it's an unsigned shortcut to the next street, or smaller stuff like "that's a lovely garden" or "this would make a great photo". Even on a larger scale, it's a good excuse to go for a trip to a neighbouring town or park - not something particularly unusual, perhaps, but at least something I find myself doing more. And even if I get a little carried away or too far off the beaten track, it's less of a problem, thanks to...

Knowledge

All that time looking at street signs and shop fronts in the real world, and digital maps on the computer later, has led to the expected result - I know my area a lot better than I did before. It's just like most other skills, where if you just keep practising and spending time on it you improve, but I doubt I'd have spent nearly as much time "memorising" voluntarily otherwise. My mind's-eye-copy is hardly perfect - I'm still terrible at most of the street names around here - but it's handy to be able to have a pretty good idea of what I can buy where in town, or how to get from here to there in five different ways, or even just what's over the next hill.

Oh, and knowing something I drew is on maps and websites all over the place is pretty nice too.

Who uses OpenStreetMap?

Posted by dalek2point3 on 24 October 2014 in English (English)

I have recently been interested in measuring how openstreetmap is being used in different services around the world. Now obviously, this is a very hard question to answer, because, being an open project, OSM data can be downloaded at any point in time, and you can start playing around with it. We dont require any permission for this action, and while the Odbl license does require attribution if you use the data in production, such attribution is hard to track. Openstreetmap data can be found on planes, in disaster relief -- not to mention the thousands of web and mobile applications that use it for different intents and purposes.

Alright, having convinced you that its quite hard to track all possible uses of openstreetmap, perhaps it is possible to track usage of OSM tiles in web applications online? Now, while still difficult, this is easier to accomplish, because at the very least the question is well defined, and in theory, answerable. If we could survey each and every website out there, see if they use tiles from an OpenStreetMap server (or Mapbox server) we might be able to say something about OSM usage. Now, this still would not cover cases where folks have set up their own tileserver with OSM data -- which one might argue is a quite common way to use OSM data.

Either way, I recently discovered HTTPArchive and thought it would be a cool project to track the usage of different mapping APIs online, including Mapbox and folks using OpenStreetMap tiles (which you're not supposed to do for heavy usage!). What HTTPArchive does it crawl about the top million websites, and for each website it records the HTTP requests that the site is making. Now, this it turns out, is a great way to measure the usage of javascript frameworks, Google Analytics etc -- except, no one so far has used it to look at mapping APIs and OpenStreetMap in particular!-

So, I thought I would do that! Now, the HTTPArchive data is quite large -- (petabytes I hear) -- but fortunately it's all available on Google Big Query which makes it a cinch to query. Results from now of my explorations are below.

HTTPArchive data is stored in two important tables (two for each "run") -- pages and requests, and the latest versions can be always found at latest_pages and latest_requests. The `pages' tables contains information like the url scraped, number of bytes etc. Lets see if the main openstreetmap website is in the data. The following query does the job:

select pageid, url,urlShort from httparchive:runs.latest_pages
where  REGEXP_MATCH(urlShort, r'openstreetmap.org');

Yes it is! This query returns:

Row pageid url urlShort
1 17330926 http://www.openstreetmap.org/ http://www.openstreetmap.org/

Seems like the pageid is 17330926. Now, the `requests' table is where all the juicy information is contained. Lets see what requests, the OSM website makes:

select * from httparchive:runs.latest_requests
where pageid == 17330926;

And this is the response that you get -- about 35 requests. That data is here. As you can see, this includes a number of requests for *.tile.openstreetmap.org, OSM's public tileserver.

Which other websites make similar requests? This is where the HTTPArchive really shines. After some experimentation, the following SQL query does the trick:

  SELECT urlShort FROM [httparchive:runs.latest_pages] as pages JOIN (
    SELECT pageid, REGEXP_EXTRACT(url, r'(tile.openstreetmap.org)') AS link2
    FROM [httparchive:runs.latest_requests] as requests
  WHERE REGEXP_MATCH(url, r'tile.openstreetmap.org')
  ) AS lib ON pages.pageid = lib.pageid
  GROUP BY urlShort;

Not many websites seem to be hitting the tileserver directly -- which is reassuring. That data is here.

A final interesting thing to run would be a similar analysis for Google Maps and Mapbox. Queries for Mapbox and Google Maps are available on Github. And the data from there queries are here -- Mapbox and I'm still working on getting the data from Google Maps API usage. That is for another post!

Hope you will find HTTPArchive a useful tool to analyze data from the web. It certainly seems easy to use and with lots of interesting data for analysis! Happy exploring!

From the "steps to happiness series": thanking

Posted by naoliv on 24 October 2014 in English (English)

Thank you dear [editor] for so many changesets with only a single object. It's so nice to see users with less than 1 year having almost 21000 (yes, 21 thousand) changesets. It's even better to try to find something that they changed.

Thank you dear [editor] for allowing users to create objects only with name (and nothing else).
A sub-thank you for more "complex" objects, having only area=yes + name.

Thank you dear [editor] for so many changesets without comments.

Thank you dear [editor] for allowing users to delete and modify relations without any kind of warning.

Just for fun but a waste of time

Posted by Little Brother on 24 October 2014 in English (English)

For fun I mapped a desert hamlet in Pakistan that nobody will probably ever see or need to use. Surely that is a waste of time!

I know the object attributes are just assumptions.

Please feel free to correct if you can do it better.

Cartografiando a todo momento... Pero sin PC

Posted by JeSe-MX on 24 October 2014 in Spanish (Español)

Desde que supe de OSM, y tuve en mi celular las herramientas del GPS, grabador de voz, y cámara de fotos, a todo momento no pierdo la oportunidad de cartografiar por donde transito.

Tantas veces aprovecho, que hasta ya he levantado sospechas en las calles; y es que normalmente para ir a algún lado, yo lo hago a pie. Y mi método de cartografiar es grabar la traza GPS, poner algunos waypoints, y sobre todo, hacer anotaciones dictando al grabador de voz.

Al dictar, normalmente voy diciendo lo que está a mis lados; como por ejemplo:

  • 23 izquierda haciendo esquina con Miscelanea paty
  • 10 derecha
  • telefono esquina izquierda antes de cruzar
  • cruzando calle "matías", que es de asfalto, iluminación, banqueta ambos lados, y tengo el 45 del lado derecho y 44 del lado izquierdo
  • 45 izquierda y 18 derecha, continuando la trayectoria de la traza GPS

Y así voy haciendo anotaciones de los que voy viendo.

Pero obviamente, y poniéndonos en el lugar de algún residente: Si soy residente, y veo a alguien que dice mi número de casa a través de un celular, y a paso veloz (6k/h), pues me parecería sospechoso. Por tal motivo, los mismos residentes, e incluso algunas autoridades, ya me han abordado pidiendo las razones por la que estoy haciendo ésto.

Y no es por balconear a las autoridades, pero tal y como pasa con algunos ciudadanos, no saben lo que es cartografiar. Una vez que se los explico, resulta que termino peor, pues cuando les indico que es una labor que hago "sin pago", sino por mi voluntad y para todo el mundo, termino como más sospechoso, pues "nadie hace trabajos de a gratis". Y por lo mismo que termino aún más sospechoso, termino mi cartografiado, por solicitud de las autoridades, o para no levantar más sospechas a la gente. Y no culpo a la gente por sospechar así de mi, pues también donde vivo los vecinos estamos al pendiente de lo que pasa frente a nuestras casas y calles.

Para poder cartografiar sin complicaciones por ambas partes, pregunté en el foro de cómo hacer para identificarse si OSM es una organización de voluntarios,

http://forum.openstreetmap.org/viewtopic.php?id=26287 http://forum.openstreetmap.org/viewtopic.php?id=26286

Y lo mejor que se acoplaba a mi, era hacerme un "gafete" o credencial que indicara que soy voluntario para OSM. Además de hacer folletos para dar a conocer OSM y lo que es, pero por el momento no tengo presupuesto como para hacer folletos.

este es el formato que hice: formato

Actualmente no he podido imprimir el gafete, pues no he tenido suerte de que algún cyber-café tenga PC's con Photoshop que es donde tengo el trabajo ya hecho con mi nombre y demás datos propios. Les compartiré una foto cuando ya lo tenga impreso, enmicado y con su cordel.

Y por lo mismo de que no tengo PC propia, y sigo cartografiando a todo momento, ya se me han juntado las trazas GPX.

Le había comentado a Roderik que tengo como prioridad mis cartografiados, antes que seguir mapeando calles faltantes, o traducir la Wiki, y es que estipulaba que tenía cerca de 100Km en trazas; Pero aunque ya le avancé bastante a mis trazas, hice la cuenta del total de longitud de las trazas pendientes, y aún tengo cerca de 130km por cartografiar.

https://jesemx.files.wordpress.com/2014/10/cart-gpx-2.jpg https://jesemx.files.wordpress.com/2014/10/cart-gpx.jpg

Pero ya espero poder avanzar en mis trazas, pues cada vez son más, debido a que salgo más de lo que estoy frente un PC.

Por cierto, estuve por hacer un videotutorial de cómo cartografio con grabador de voz, pero por tuve algunas negativas de las autoridades, pues según necesito permiso para hacer grabaciones en lugares públicos. Tendré que hacerlo con capturas del celular.

Full geometry ahead!

Posted by tyr_asd on 24 October 2014 in English (English)

This summer brought us some nice new features to the Overpass API universe, that are now finally available in overpass-turbo (and osmtogeojson). Here are some of the highlights:

geometry options

The Overpass API now has three new geometry types, which give you even more flexibility in your queries:

  • out center; – this additionally prints the center coordinate for every OSM object
  • out bb; – this additionally prints the bounding box coordinates for every OSM object
  • out geom; – this additionally prints the full coordinates of every OSM object

The first two options are particularly usefull if one is only interested in the approximate location of some features, rather than their exact outline. For example, one finds that POIs are often mapped on building outlines. By requesting only the center coordinates (out center;), one saves transfer bandwidth and gets an overall quicker query.

Here is an example how this looks like (note that out of the 7 displayed POIs, 6 are mapped on ways in OSM): (try it on overpass turbo)

The full geometry (out geom;) option replaces the need to use object recursions to get the geometry for a certain OSM way or relation. This also saves bandwith and generally comes with faster query execution times. (In this example it saves almost 50% of the data.)

With osmtogeojson version 2.2.0, all this is also available on your command line or to be used as a javascript-library in your projects!

regular expressions for keys

I know that lots of people requested this feature, and now you can finally use regular expression on keys, for example to get all nodes with some kind of name-tag:

node[~"(^|_)name($|_|:)"~".*"]({{bbox}}); out;

Here, the additional tilde in front of the key indicates that the regex-search should be extended to the key as well.

This is also accessible via overpass turbo's query wizard. Try this for example: building=* and ~"addr:.*"~".*"

Overpass QL is now the default

Queries generated by the wizard, a template and the query examples are now printed in Overpass QL. Overpass QL has a more concise syntax, is faster to write and more and more documentation and help is available for it. (Of course anyone can still continue to write, use and execute queries in the older XML syntax.)

Creating/improving MTB paths at Medvednica mountain

Posted by dankot on 24 October 2014 in English (English)

I am trying to improve markings for MTB paths and routes at Medvednica mountain ih the area where I ride a lot and know paths well.

I use tags recomanded for MTB as described here: http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Mountain_biking

Openstreetmap.org currently only partially renders these tags, but you can download maps rendered according to MTB tags here: http://openmtbmap.org/ (there is no online MTB map). Currently i'm in process of creating "MTB route 2" which will be added as a "relation" to existing paths.

Also, I will add "MTB related" tags directly to existing paths as these will not interfere with other tags, specially those intended for hikers. My "MTB route 2" is slight variation of "official" MTB route No 2. of Nature Park Medvednica with my corrections to the route so that it less interferes with hiking routes.

Any suggestion is welcomed!

Regards, Danko

CheckAutopista Update

Posted by k1wi on 24 October 2014 in English (English)

Hi there everyone!

There is some great updates for CheckAutopista that I would like to share with you.

CheckAutopista

I've updated the freeway checking tool to support any motorway or trunk in the world. The only requirement is that the freeway is marked with route=road on a relation. The way it works currently is that you zoom in to your desired area where your freeway is and you click See freeways. Then you choose from the list the freeway you want and you click Load and you are ready to check your freeway.

This has been available for some time now but not much people know this: You can activate or deactivate elements on the legend by clicking on the circles next to the name.

You can deactivate categories clicking on the circles

Also CheckAutopista is now available in English, Portuguese, Catalan and the original Spanish. It automatically detects the language of the user but if it doesn't detect your language you can use the above links or access like this: http://checkautopista.hol.es/?lang=en .

A little survey story

Posted by escada on 23 October 2014 in English (English)

The Belgian community is currently looking at some tools to import house numbers from the AGIV CRAB database. We are in an experimental phase, there is no formal go for the import yet.

Using the tool I saw a street in which I didn't collect house numbers so far. It was tempting to just copy the numbers. But since I needed to walk the dogs, I decided to pass through that street. So what did I discover during this short survey ? A zone 30, a memorial for Frans Abels (a composer 1899-1962), a missing path and a waste bin. It was just 10 minutes extra compared to our normal walk.

Conclusion ? For me it is not sufficient to just copy numbers from a database. It's better to go out for a walk with the dogs. Using this method I collect more diverse data en I learn something along the way.

Einträge erscheinen auch nach über 14 Tagen nicht

Hallo,

vor über 14 Tagen habe ich die Standorte unserer Rechtsanwaltskanzlei in die Karte als Punkte eingetragen. Im Bearbeiten-Modus werden mir die Einträge auch angezeigt. Auf der normalen Karte sind die Einträge aber bis heute nicht erschienen, siehe:

Alles was ich dazu lese geht dahin, dass die Einträge wenigstens nach ein paar Stunden erscheinen sollten. Leider fehlt es an einer verständlichen Hilfe, aus der hervorgeht, warum dies vorliegend nicht funktionieren könnte. Ebenso finde ich kein deutschsprachiges Forum zu dem Thema.

15 jours de cartographie OpenStreetMap à Dijon

Posted by Dlareg on 23 October 2014 in French (Français)

Les associations COAGUL et les Amis de la Terre Côte-d'Or co-organisent un audit participatif de la présence publicitaire à Dijon du 21 octobre au 4 novembre 2014

Cet audit participatif remplit deux objectifs :

  • Le premier est de recenser durant 2 semaines les panneaux de publicité de l'agglomération dijonnaise et de les ajouter dans OpenStreetMap. Les données seront chiffrées et mises en valeur sur une carte. Elles pourront ainsi être utilisées pour comparer le résultat, lors de l'enquête publique et/ou de la consultation prévue par la ville de Dijon, avec l'audit de la publicité commandé par celle-ci.
  • Le deuxième objectif est d'initier et de sensibiliser un maximum de personnes à la cartographie libre OpenStreetMap.

I recenttly added a museum to OpenStreetMap but I can't see it when I am not legged in. I would want to add a museum to OSM database so programmers could use that information for mapping but it is not easy. Could someone help me?

Thank you
