Bugfixing terracer: 7. Have you Tried Restarting Your Program, Sir?

Posted by alexkemp on 17 January 2017 in English (English)
  1. There May be Troubles Ahead
  2. Errors whilst Compiling using Ant
  3. Creating Eclipse Project
  4. Eclipse Debugging Routines
  5. wORD cASE bLINDNESS
  6. Importing the Project Bugs
  7. Have you Tried Restarting Your Program, Sir?
  8. Show Your Bugs, Damn You!
  9. Be Careful What You Wish For

tl;dr: It seems that you simply need to be pig-headed & ignore all errors, clean the Build & restart & do it again (below is what I had to go through to discover this).

  1. Configure Debian Jessie for JAVA-8 default usage:
    (update-java-alternatives only works with manual-set settings)
    (just one example ('extcheck') is given below for changing a 'auto' setting, which all default to Java-7)
    (change them all to Java-8)
    (some, such as browser plugins, do not have Java-8 binaries)

    $ sudo update-java-alternatives -l
    $ sudo update-java-alternatives -s java-1.8.0-openjdk-amd64
    $ sudo update-alternatives --get-selections | fgrep -i java-7
    $ sudo update-alternatives --config extcheck
    $$(repeat with all others)
    $ sudo update-alternatives --get-selections | fgrep -i java-7
    itweb-settings auto /usr/lib/jvm/java-7-openjdk-amd64/jre/bin/itweb-settings
    javaws auto /usr/lib/jvm/java-7-openjdk-amd64/jre/bin/javaws
    mozilla-javaplugin.so auto /usr/lib/jvm/java-7-openjdk-amd64/jre/lib/amd64/IcedTeaPlugin.so

  2. Create a menu launcher for eclipse-oxygen

    $ cp /usr/share/applications/eclipse.desktop ~/.local/share/applications/eclipse-oxygen.desktop
    $ nano ~/.local/share/applications/eclipse-oxygen.desktop
    $ cat ~/.local/share/applications/eclipse-oxygen.desktop
    [Desktop Entry]
    Type=Application
    Name=Eclipse-Oxygen
    Comment=Eclipse Integrated Development Environment
    Icon=eclipse
    Exec=~/eclipse/java-oxygen/eclipse/eclipse
    Terminal=false
    Categories=Development;IDE;Java;

  3. Empty ~/workspace of all files

  4. Open Eclipse-oxygen & select "workspace/" as the Workspace

  5. Remove the Welcome screen (click on 'x')

  6. Install Eclipse Subversive ( http://www.eclipse.org/subversive/downloads.php )
    (drag & drop 'Install' link into a running Eclipse workspace to install Subversive)
    (see also https://youtu.be/04L4rkykWZw )

  7. After restart, install SVN Connector
    (Go Window ▸ Perspective ▸ Open Perspective ▸ Other...)
    (Select SVN Repository Exploring + press OK)
    (Check a SVN Kit connector + press OK)
    (Press Next> + accept the Licence agreement + press Finish)
    (Accept the unsigned software Security warning) (prats)
    (Restart when finished. Again.)

  8. Click on File ▸ New ▸ Other

  9. Open the SVN category and select Repository Location + Press Next>

  10. Paste the URL: https://svn.openstreetmap.org/applications/editors/josm/ + Press Finish
    (a vast, long wait at this point)
    (I eventually restarted & opened the Repository view)
    (Window ▸ Perspective ▸ Open Perspective ▸ SVN Repository Exploring)
    (There were now 3 lines in the SVN Repositories window)
    (I removed two, then right-clicked on the last one & chose 'Check-out')
    (Finally the bottom-right of the window showed activity...)
    (now to import the existing project)

  11. File ▸ Import

  12. (expand General) select Existing Projects into Workspace + Press Next>

  13. Click Browse... on Select root directory and navigate to /workspace/josm/core

  14. The text in the Projects box now reads JOSM (~/workspace/josm/core) and needs to be selected

  15. Press Finish

  16. It now says 'Building Workspace' but rapidly stops with the error:
    Error !!! Unable to find jar file (for extension jj), check the JavaCC options of the project(@ 17/01/2017 00:06:20)
    (I have already installed this once & have zero idea as to why I'm expected to install it again)
    (I begin to re-install it but it quickly tells me that it is already installed)
    (I click on 'Hide items that are already installed) and discover another item hidden beneath it:)
    (SF JavaCC Eclipse Plug-in feature 1.5.33 - I install that)
    (However, the whole thing turns out to be a bug, and it reports it to be already installed)
    (This is getting boring)
    (Click on a 'What is already installed?' link, select the plugin + click on uninstall, then restart)
    (Reinstall the plugin from scratch, and restart)
    (Identical error - really boring)...
    (Select josm (or JOSM) in Package Explorer, then go Project ▸ Properties ▸ JavaCC Options)
    (I change Set the JavaCC jar file from ${project_loc}/tools/javacc.jar to ~/.p2/pool/plugins/sf.eclipse.javacc_1.5.33/jars/javacc-6.0.jar)
    (I change Set the JTB jar file from ${eclipse_home}/plugins/sf.eclipse.javacc_1.5.27/jtb-1.4.7.jar to ~/.p2/pool/plugins/sf.eclipse.javacc_1.5.33/jars/jtb-1.4.11.jar)
    (Press OK then Yes on Rebuild the Project)

  17. Right click on josm in Package ExplorerDebug As ▸ Java Application on ~/workspace/josm/core/eclipse/JOSM (Java 8)
    (this quickly goes to the Debug screen; I need to press f8 (Resume) until it throws an exception that the JOSM bug-reoprt system can catch)
    (I report the bug https://josm.openstreetmap.de/ticket/14258 )

  18. Press ProjectClean...; restart Eclipse; do Debug As identical to before
    (so that the first src file + line that it stopped at could be reported)

  19. JOSM load goes all the way to the first screen (choose location load, etc). Bugger!
    (I've tried a second time & it seems that you simply need to get the errors the first time, then restart & do it again, and everything works fine)

ImproveOSM ahora basado en iD editor

Posted by Mapanauta on 16 January 2017 in Spanish (Español)

Versión en Español del Blog creado por Martijn Van Exel 15 de Noviembre 2016

Con la ayuda de ImproveOSM, el proyecto de Telenav para analizar billones de puntos GPS para detectar Missing Roads (caminos faltantes), sentidos de una sola dirección, restricciones de vuelta, ya han visto 60,000 mosaicos de caminos faltantes, 15,000 sugerencias para caminos de un solo sentido y 2,000 restricciones de vueltas desde que el proyecto se lanzó en Septiembre 2015.

Hoy, el equipo de Telenav ha liberado una nueva versión del sitio web ImproveOSM. ImproveOSM.org es ahora basado totalmente en el conocido iD Editor de OpenStreetMap. El nuevo ImproveOSM combina los beneficios de la herramienta con la que estamos familiarizados y fácil de usar con el poder de las detecciones de ImproveOSM.

El nuevo sitio web ImproveOSM mostrando Missing Roads (caminos faltantes)

El nuevo sitio web ImproveOSM mostrando Missing Roads (caminos faltantes)

Debido a que el nuevo sitio web se basa en iD, debería parecer muy familiar y deberías de tener pocos problema para empezar con él. La principal diferencia que verás es que la versión de ImproveOSM con iD tiene un panel especial, que muestra opciones específicas, acciones e información de ImproveOSM. Si has utilizado ImproveOSM antes, estos te serán familiares. Puedes marcar elementos como solucionados o no válidos y aplicar filtros para determinar qué detecciones detecta.

No quiero entrar en demasiados detalles en este post, pero tengo un consejo que vale la pena: siguiendo a muchas solicitudes de ustedes, ahora puede seleccionar varios mosaicos de carreteras que faltan más fácilmente presionando shift y seleccionando un mosaico. Esto seleccionará automáticamente todos los mosaicos contiguos dentro de la vista actual.

Nuestro objetivo es integrar la funcionalidad de ImproveOSM con el ID Editor principal con el tiempo. Para que esto suceda, su retroalimentación es muy importante, así que no duden en reportar errores e ideas en la página GitHub del proyecto (the project GitHub page), donde el código fuente también estará disponible pronto.

Esperamos que disfrutes del nuevo sitio web de ImproveOSM y esperamos tus comentarios! Happy mapping!

Egleton Triangulation Pillar

Posted by Peter Fowler on 15 January 2017 in English (English)

See TL08/T16 - Egleton.

I went out today to compare my Garmin eTrex 10's idea of the location of this Triangulation Pillar with the Ordnance Survey National Grid reference of 486466.32,306589.94 .

I am pleased to report that the Garmin read 52N39.0111 0W43.399 (WGS84 decimal minutes), the closest representation of the Ordnance Survey data. I converted the National Grid reference at Coordinate transformation tool to give 52N39.010738 0W43.399301, note that not all online co-ordinate conversion tools agree!

This pillar has a flush bracket with the number S6767.

I have added this as a point, in changeset 45201297.

I do not know that it is in the perfectly correct place as I do not know that Bing's idea of the absolute position of points on the earth's surface is the same as mine. OK, the location of my new point is 52.6501638, -0.723312, and it should be 52.6501790, -0.723322. Do I need to fix this, and if so, how?

OpenStreetMap Community Statistics Revisited

Posted by SimonPoole on 15 January 2017 in English (English)

In November 2015 I produced a blog post on the relative sizes of our national communities and their development over time. When I updated the contributor stats on our wiki a couple of days back and looking at the massive impact the influx of first time users using maps.me have on the contributor numbers (not necessarily on anything else as I have pointed out in earlier posts), I thought it would be interesting to update the numbers and have a look at what has changed over slightly more than a year.

The most notable changes in the top 20 ranking by absolute community size are Russia overtaking France, Ukraine moving up 6 places and the Philippines moving in to the top 20 at the expense of the Czech Republic.

It is reasonable to assume that these changes are mainly due to the differences in the popularity of maps.me, No surprise and expected that it is most popular in Russia and the Ukraine, not so clear why it is so popular in the Philippines:

Numerous small changes in the contributors per capita ranking, but I suspect the fact to take away from this is that even in countries that already had the best results we are still improving the penetration levels.

In the first blog I singled out Germany and the United States as the two largest communities with very different growth patterns. Particularly in Germany there has been some concern as both the number of active contributors over short periods and the absolute number of edits have been decreasing slightly over the last two years. However new contributor influx does not show the same trend and we might put the “negative” trend simply down to the major urban areas of Germany being extremely well mapped.

As in 2015 the trend in the United States is very different, with a very large growth peak in December 2016. 3500 mappers in a month is roughly what would be required to grow at the same rate relative to population as Germany, so this should be a great achievement.

Unluckily it is not.

Closer inspection shows that a large number (in the 1000s) of the accounts created in December and in the proceeding months are fake accounts created by one or more SEO companies. While it is rather unclear if the data added itself is legit, the accounts themselves are not.

Back to numbers with a more positive context, the continental distribution of mappers continues to even out, while Europe continues to dominate, both Asia and South America have increased their relative share.

The raw data for the stats is available as LibreOffice Calc files. Notes on the methodology can be found in the original blog post.

Bugfixing terracer: 6. Importing the Project Bugs

  1. There May be Troubles Ahead
  2. Errors whilst Compiling using Ant
  3. Creating Eclipse Project
  4. Eclipse Debugging Routines
  5. wORD cASE bLINDNESS
  6. Importing the Project Bugs
  7. Have you Tried Restarting Your Program, Sir?
  8. Show Your Bugs, Damn You!
  9. Be Careful What You Wish For

Under Compiling using Eclipse the Developers' Guide says:

Use Eclipse and the provided .project and .classpath file. Just import project using the JOSM core folder as root directory.

Those are brave words, but more than a touch useless for noobs like me (how do I do that?) (and exactly why do I need to compile anything anyway, since a full build is provided? I come here to debug a plugin, not compile it).

The nightmare of Black Friday 13 & Saturday suggest that I do need to import the provided project. So, here is how to do that (and, unfortunately, import the project's bugs at the same time):

  1. File ▸ Import
  2. (expand General) select Existing Projects into Workspace
    (press Next>)
  3. (click Browse... on Select root directory)
  4. select josm dir + press OK
     
    A ghost-in-the-machine now appears within the Projects box. The entire thing is grey rather than black (including the checkbox) and cannot be selected. After the initial checkbox, the text reads: josm (~/workspace/josm) (the dir in brackets is identical to the workspace dir that has been selected) (this result previously stopped me going any further). Under the dialog title (Import Projects) it says:

    Some projects cannot be imported because they already exist in the workspace

  5. (click Browse... on Select root directory)

  6. select core dir + press OK
     
    The text in the Projects box now reads JOSM (~/workspace/josm/core) and is both pre-selected & selectable.  

  7. Press Finish

Back at the main window a Building Workspace notice appears at bottom right. After a short while it concludes with 2 show-stopping errors:

  • The project was not built since its build path is incomplete. Cannot find the class file for AuthorizationProcedure. Fix the build path then try building this project
  • The type AuthorizationProcedure cannot be resolved. It is indirectly referenced from required .class files

Debug As ▸ Java Application on ~/workspace/josm/core/eclipse/JOSM (Java 8).launch now has a Proceed button (although errors are reported) and clicking gives the result:

The specified JRE installation does not exist

Not good, but it is progress.

Coda 1: Missing AuthorizationProcedure

This is located as follows (though atm I have zero idea as to why it is missing):

~/workspace/josm$ head ./core/src/org/openstreetmap/josm/gui/oauth/AuthorizationProcedure.java
// License: GPL. For details, see LICENSE file.
package org.openstreetmap.josm.gui.oauth;

public enum AuthorizationProcedure {
    /**
     * Run a fully automatic procedure to get an access token from the OSM website.
     * JOSM accesses the OSM website on behalf of the JOSM user and interacts
     * with the site using an OSM session, form posting and screen scraping.
     */

Coda 2: The source of this problem?

It begins to look likely that the source of this problem is that the 3.8.1 version of Eclipse provided with Debian Stable (Jessie) is much, much too old, and thus cannot support JAVA-8. My first clue on this came with a stackoverflow question. The questioner answered his own question:

This was fixed by changing my Eclipse IDE version from indigo to luna. Luna comes with support for Java 8 so all issues have now been resolved.

Luna is 4.4 and was released in 2014 so yes, 3.8 (Juno) will not work with JAVA-8.

As necessary cross-confirmation, with advice from here, the compliance level needs to be at least 1.8 (Window ▸ Preferences (open Java) Compiler ▸ JDK Compliance). If the JDK Compliance Level is not set to 1.8 (or better), then that version can NOT support JAVA-8. In my case it was 1.4 & has 1.7 as the maximum available.

Eclipse has an Installer which promises easy updates (release-notes). Advice from linuxconfig.org if you would rather go the direct route. For me:

$ cd ~
$ tar xpf Downloads/eclipse-inst-linux64.tar.gz
$ cd eclipse-installer
$ ls -Al

OpenJDK Runtime Environment (IcedTea 2.6.7) (7u111-2.6.7-2~deb8u1)
OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (build 24.111-b01, mixed mode)

Notice how the damn thing is running JAVA-7, even though I've set the alternatives system to prefer JAVA-8. That makes me spit. However, it is up & running with Version: Oxygen Release Milestone 4 (4.7.0 M4), and is set internally to use JAVA-8, except that we now get 56 errors, 6,082 warnings, 17 others after building the workspace.

Fortunately, I spotted the name MapCSSParser, which was referenced as Mappaint MapCSS in the Wiki under 'Compiling':

  1. Go Help ▸ Install New Software...
  2. Add URL http://eclipse-javacc.sourceforge.net/
  3. Add name JavaCC Plugin
    (pressing Enter put it in the Work with selection, whilst JavaCC Eclipse Plugin appeared in the box below, and needed to be selected)
  4. Press Next>
  5. (version 1.5.33) Press Next>
  6. (accept license agreement) Press Finish
  7. (warning about unsigned content) (prats - accept it)
  8. Restart Eclipse

That only puts us into a situation where we can compile the required .java files from MapCSSParser.jj using the newly installed JavaCC (try to keep up). Unfortunately, the Wiki has the wrong location for this file. You can find it at ~/workspace/josm/core/src/org/openstreetmap/josm/gui/mappaint/mapcss/MapCSSParser.jj. Locate it within the package explorer, right-click on it & select Compile with javacc. When that completes all errors have gone, although there are now 6,299 warnings.

Debug As ▸ Java Application on ~/workspace/josm/core/eclipse/JOSM (Java 8).launch now launches the JOSM load window (I almost fainted, but it immediately stopped on Error: Unknown projection code & restored my faith in buggy builds!).

fRIDAY 13 jANUARY WAS NOT A GOOD DAY.

tHE vOGELLA TUTORIAL SAYS:

1.4. Starting the Debugger
To debug your application, select a Java file with a main method. Right-click on it and select Debug As ▸ Java Application.

tHAT SEEMS SIMPLE ENOUGH. hOWEVER, FINDING A main METHOD IN josm IS MUCH HARDER THAN AT FIRST IT SEEMS:-

~$ cd ~/workspace/josm
~/workspace/josm$ fgrep -ir 'main {' ./
./plugins/Mapillary/.svn/pristine/(removed).svn-base:  main {
./plugins/Mapillary/build.gradle:  main {
./core/src/org/openstreetmap/josm/Main.java:public abstract class Main {
./core/src/org/openstreetmap/josm/gui/MainApplication.java:public class MainApplication extends Main {

(aWARD YOURSELF A gOLD sTAR IF YOU SPOTTED THE -i IN fgrep)

sO, ONLY 2 SOURCE-FILES, + ./core/src/JOSM.java (DECLARED IN ./core/build.xml AS THE "Main-class"):

JOSM.java:
/*
 * JOSM main class (entry point of the application)
 */

  1. Main.java : public abstract class Main
  2. MainApplication.java : public class MainApplication extends Main
  3. JOSM.java: public class JOSM extends MainApplication

nONE OF THE 3 PROGRAMS ABOVE HAVE A Java Application AVAILABLE WHEN Right-click | Select Debug As IS TRIED. hOWEVER, Debugging a Java Program, tutorials.point POINTED OUT THAT THERE WAS A KEYBOARD SHORTCUT (i LOVE KEYBOARD SHORTCUTS) (PROGRAM NEEDS TO BE PRE-SELECTED WITHIN Package Explorer):

Alt + Shift + D, J

tHAT GIVES THE VERY WONDERFUL ERROR MESSAGE:

Selection does not contain a main type

...AND THAT LEADS TO HUNDREDS OF FORUMS & OTHER SITES ALL SAYING THE SAME THING:

Your class is supposed to be called ‘main’, not ‘Main’

i HAD TO GO AND SIT DOWN IN A DARKENED ROOM FOR MANY HOURS AFTER DISCOVERING THIS.

iT'S NOT POSSIBLE TO CHANGE THE NAME OF THAT CLASS (AT LEAST, NOT BY ME) AND i COULD NOT FIND ANY WAY TO RE-CONFIGURE eCLIPSE TO CHOOSE A DIFFERENT CLASS NAME. oN AN INSPIRATION, i LOOKED AT josm/core/eclipse/ AND DISCOVERED JOSM (Java 8).launch. rIGHT-CLICKING ON THAT & Debug As HAD A LAUNCH OPTION. oH! jOY!

cHOOSING IT GAVE AN ERROR MESSAGE:

Launch configuration JOSM (Java 8) references non-existing project josm.

cHECKING THE PROJECT CONFIG FILE + LAUNCH FILE CONFIRMED MY WORST FEARS:

~$ head -3 "workspace/josm/core/.project"
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<projectDescription>
    <name>JOSM</name>
~$ tail -4 "workspace/josm/core/eclipse/JOSM (Java 8).launch"
<stringAttribute key="org.eclipse.jdt.launching.MAIN_TYPE" value="JOSM"/>
<stringAttribute key="org.eclipse.jdt.launching.PROGRAM_ARGUMENTS" value="--debug"/>
<stringAttribute key="org.eclipse.jdt.launching.PROJECT_ATTR" value="josm"/>

sO, JAVA WANTED AN ENTRY CLASS CALLED main & OUR SOFTWARE WRITERS CALLED IT Main. tHEN, THEY CALLED THE eCLIPSE PROJECT JOSM BUT IN THE LAUNCH FILE CALLED IT josm. i WAS DETECTING A TREND HERE.

bY THIS MOMENT IT WAS THE WEE HOURS OF TODAY (sATURDAY) AND i THOUGHT IT BEST THAT i GO & LIE DOWN IN THAT DARKENED ROOM AGAIN, THIS TIME UNTIL THE MORNING.

iN THE MORNING i RESTARTED THE COMPUTER & CHANGED THE PROJECT NAME IN THE LAUNCH FILE TO JOSM, THEN BOOTED UP eCLIPSE AND TRIED AGAIN. tHIS TIME, THE ERROR MESSAGE SAID:

Launch configuration JOSM (Java 8) references non-existing project JOSM.

bUGGER. iT LOOKS LIKE NO PROJECT MAY BE REGISTERED WITHIN eCLIPSE, EVEN THOUGH i RECALL THE SCREEN (BRIEFLY) FLASHING UP INFO ON REGISTERING IT AFTER THE svn CHECKOUT PROCESS.

bUGGER BUGGER BUGGER. i CANNOT FIND ANY MEANS OF REGISTERING/IMPORTING/CREATING/RE-CREATING AN eCLIPSE PROJECT. oH DAMMIT; DOES ANYONE HAVE A DOG i CAN KICK?

hOW ON EARTH CAN A WRITER NOT NOTICE THAT, AS ONE OBVIOUS EXAMPLE, THAT THEY HAVE THEIR cAPS-lOCK KEY ON AND THAT THEIR WORD CASE IS THUS ALL WRONG? i USE THE LINUX TERMINAL, SO I KNOW IMMEDIATELY IF THE CASE IS WRONG. i SUPPOSE THAT THESE GUYS ALL USE wINDOWS. bUGGER.

Coda: Restart Attempt

It got so bad that I decided to restart from scratch: shut down Eclipse, empty everything inside ~/workspace & redo Checkout Projects from SVN after opening Eclipse (concise list at bottom). When the Checkout was complete I went to workspace/josm/core/eclipse/JOSM (Java 8).launch & did right-click Debug As ▸ Java Application. It threw an error message:

Launch configuration JOSM (Java 8) references non-existing project JOSM.

Have the software authors changed that value to now be (correctly) upper-case? I've checked, and that's how it now is on the SVN server. Or did I get it wrong the first time? I am no longer certain. I only know that the damn thing will not work, no matter what I do. Even with completely default settings.

I cannot do anything further; time for bed.

Here is the concise list to setup Eclipse. Y'know, the list that doesn't work...

  1. Create an empty workspace dir
  2. Open Eclipse & select "workspace/" as the Workspace
  3. Remove the Welcome screen (click on 'x')
  4. Click on File ▸ New ▸ Other
  5. Open the SVN category and select Checkout Projects from SVN
  6. Press the Next> button in the Wizard
  7. Select Create a new repository location; press Next>
  8. Paste: https://svn.openstreetmap.org/applications/editors/
    ("Select/Create Location") + Press Next>
  9. Enter josm ("Select Folder") + Press Next>
  10. Select Checkout as a project in the workspace
    ("Check Out As") + Press Next>
  11. (use defaults)
    ("Select the project location") + Press Finish

Приветственная запись (напутствие себе)

Posted by Alexey87 on 13 January 2017 in Russian (Русский)

По Верхневолжским озёрам уже более 20 лет хожу водными и сухопутными путями во множестве походов и прогулок. С самых первых походов ощущалась острая нехватка сколько-нибудь приличных карт этой местности. Часто натыкался на неизвестные лесные дороги, или, наоборот, некая тропа упиралась в непроходимое болото, в то время как на карте это не тропа, а дорога хорошей категории, а болота нет в помине. Названия большинства малых озёр, рек и ручьёв нигде не фигурирует, их можно узнать только у местных — в озёрном-то крае!. Я уже не говорю о курьёзах вроде наличия на многих картах второй половины - конца XX века мостов и переправ, в действительности разрушенные в первые годы Великой Отечественной и не восстановленные до сих пор... Имеющиеся цифровые карты XXI века немногим лучше, так как они копируют скопированные с более ранних карт ошибки и неточности.

Своей миссией здесь вижу исправление всего этого, желаю максимально подробно передать Верхневолжье для местных жителей, туристов и отдыхающих.

Posted by Nidron on 13 January 2017 in Swedish (Svenska)

Var fullt med snö på träden och behövde ett skäl att ta mig ut. Mappning och fika på ett köpcentrum fick bli min morot. Köpte någon märklig proteinpudding som smakade saffransbulle. Tyckte det var pinsamt att köpa en träningsprodukt som företag försökte pracka på en, så det var tur att mataffären hade självscanning. Tyvärr betalade jag med kort och inte kontanter, så banken kan sitta och skratta åt mitt köp.

Raster gpstrace tiles as OsmAnd overlays

Posted by HolgerJeromin on 13 January 2017 in English (English)

OSM has (since long time) raster tiles of all uploaded GPS traces.

Since a few days they are available as a overlay (like data overlay) on the OSM.org mainpage. Hurray.

This reminded me of using the overlay of mapillary traces for OsmAnd. The same is possible with the GPS traces!

The tileset addresses are:

https://gps-{s}.tile.openstreetmap.org/lines/{z}/{x}/{y}.png and http://gps-{s}.tile.openstreetmap.org/lines/{z}/{x}/{y}.png

In OsmAnd you can use (needs the online tile plugin active)

http://gps-a.tile.openstreetmap.org/lines/{0}/{1}/{2}.png

Step-by-step instructions are shown in Peters blog.

So now you can toggle the gps and mapillary traces in osmand whatever you are interested right now.

Выява тыдня

Пра нас

  • Мы жадаем усім нашым чытачам мірнага і шчаслівага Новага 2017-га года!
    Нямецкая каманда weeklyOSM зрабіла (de) кароткі агляд навін года з раздзела "Мапы", які звычайна складаецца са спасылак на тэматычныя мапы. На жаль, у каманды не было часу, каб перакласці яго на іншыя мовы. Аднак, спадзяемся, што цягам года ў перакладах Штотыднёвіка павінныя былі сустракацца адпаведныя тэксты для большасці такіх спасылак. ;)

  • З-за недахопу людскай сілы нам давялося адмовіцца ад нашай італьянскай версіі weeklyOSM. Такім чынам, у далейшым мы будзем друкавацца на 8 мовах. Асаблівая падзяка дваім апошнім рэдактарам, што заставаліся з намі: sabas88 і sbiribizio - яны спрабавалі ўдваіх трымаць італьянскую версію "на плаву". І гэта ў той час, як выданне нацыянальнага weeklyOSM (нават калі гэта просты пераклад) патрабуе высілкаў мінімум трох рэдактараў. Мы дзякуем гэтым людзям за іхнюю пагатоўнасць працягваць сваю дзейнасць надалей у якасці рэпарцёраў weeklyOSM для італьянскай суполкі.

Мапінг

Накіраванне сілаў на такі мапінг было выклікана тым, што месцазнаходжанне пажарных гідрантаў у англійскім Уэст-Мідлэндзе было абвешчана ўладамі "сакрэтным" - і гэта нягледзячы на тое, што ​​кожны з гідрантаў на мясцовасці маркіраваны вельмі прыкметным, часцей за ўсё ярка-жоўтым знакам!

  • Харальд Хартман (Harald Hartmann) паспрабаваў высветліць паходжанне (і сэнс) тэга maxspeed=DE:rural на мапе Германіі (аўтаматычны пераклад (en)).

Le jeudi 12 janvier 2017, initiation au géocaching avec les CM1/CM2 de Villevieille

Posted by Amélie on 12 January 2017 in French (Français)

Dans le cadre du projet de découverte du patrimoine de la Communauté de Communes du Pays de Sommières par le géocaching, les élèves de CM1 / CM2 de l’école de Villevieille ont été initiés à cette chasse au trésor moderne.

C’est équipé de smartphones ou de tablettes que les élèves sont partis à la recherche de quatre caches dans les rues et chemins de leur commune. Ils ont décodé des énigmes en observant le patrimoine, pour trouver les coordonnées géographiques des caches. Ils ont appris à les saisir dans l’application OSM And et à lire la carte pour se rendre vers les points d’intérêt recherchés.

Ce parcours basé sur les caches du jeu www.geocaching.com allait du temple au Château en passant par le lavoir pour terminer à Font Ronde, certains enfants ont redécouvert le patrimoine et les paysages de leur village. Ils ont fait durant quelques heures de l’histoire, de la géographie ou même des mathématiques, sans même s’en rendre compte.

L’objectif global du projet est de créer cinq parcours de découverte du patrimoine, basé sur le géocaching, dans les villages de Junas, Crespian, Lecques, Calvisson et Villevieille. A Villevieille, le parcours sera réalisé par les élèves de la classe qui choisiront les points d’intérêts patrimoniaux qu’ils trouvent les plus intéressants.

Ce projet collaboratif sera l'occasion de compléter et d'enrichir la carte OpenStreetMap des communes concernées.

MapFactor Navigator Free

Posted by Suebia on 12 January 2017 in German (Deutsch)

Hallo,

leider ist seit dem letzten Update die Bluetooth-Funktion zur Übertragung der Sprachfunktion beim Navigieren nicht mehr aktiv, d. h. die Durchsagen erfolgen direkt über den Lautsprecher des Smartphones (Samsung S3). Erst kürzlich wurde diese Funktion nach einem Update aktiviert und stand einige Wochen zur Verfügung. Wann kommt Bluetooth für die Navigation wieder??

Gruß Wolfgang
