Palmeira dos Índios - #1585

Posted by Bonix-Mapper on 10 July 2014 in Brazilian Portuguese (Português do Brasil)

Inserindo endereço, CEP e telefone das escolas estaduais.

Há conflito entre os nomes nos dados do IBGE e da Secretaria de Educação do Estado de Alagoas. depois de algumas edições preferi o dados da Secretaria por serem mais específicos. Em alguns casos nem endereço e nem posicionamento no mapa convergem. Deixo a indicação mais próxima na expectativa de que alguém acerte no futuro.

Também Inseri escolas que não aparecem nos dados do IBGE.

Corrigi alguns nomes de ruas e inseri o mais algumas novas.

Ajuda : Não encontrei uma forma de descrever uma criação de porcos (pocilga).

Help :I have not found a way to describe a pig breeding (pigsty).

White Sands Missile Range

Posted by J B Crawford on 9 July 2014 in English (English)

Previously, OpenStreetMap has shown the White Sands Missile Range and related military installations here in New Mexico to include their "call-up" areas, or areas reserved for occasional use.

I am currently in the process of redefining this area in OSM to include only the main part of the range. I think the reasons for this are worth discussing. When users see a military installation marked on a map, particularly one shown in red diagonal stripes as the standard renderer shows it, they probably mainly expect restricted access. However, the call-up areas surrounding White Sands are entirely open to the public except for rare scheduled closures, during which signs are put up. Lately, many of the northern and western call-up areas have not had closures in quite some time.

Map users will likely be confused to see a large area marked on the map as a military reservation, but then to find no fence or any other kind of indications at the marked border. This is because the security fence is possibly many miles farther in, around the actual main area. The new outline will reflect the location of the security fence (the point at which public access is no longer allowed), which I think is the best representation of "what is on the ground."

That said, it may be useful to mark the call-up areas, and so I plan to add outlines that enclose them, but I am not sure about how to tag these.

A good source of fairly up-to-date and authoritative information on this is the White Sands Missile Range Proposed Land Use and Airspace Strategy Plan (LUASP), which you can find online. It provides names and definitions for the call-up areas and main range, as well as maps which usually show enough detail to allow you to locate the fenceline in satellite images.

I hope that this change will be useful to people like me that use OSM as a source of information for offroading, because the old outlines marked as inaccessible a huge amount of land, some of which is very beautiful and isolated country in the Quebradas, when that land is actually perfectly open to the public as long as there are not posted closures (which I have never once seen happen in the northern FIX area).

FYI for anyone else who works on this area: the entire call-up area north of the main range I am marking is called Fix, to the west of the main range, from north to south, are call-up areas Aerobee, Abres North, and Abres South.

Gütersloh Adress und Gebäudevollständig

Posted by flohoff on 9 July 2014 in German (Deutsch)

Also wenn mir die letzten Monate nicht wirklich was durch die Lappen gegangen ist müsste Gütersloh, im Herzen von Ostwestfalen-Lippe jetzt Adressvollständig sein. Vergleich gegen andere Datenbestände hat zwar abweichungen gezeigt aber das scheinen eher fehler im alternativen Datenbestand zu sein.

Jetzt geht es drum noch die Adressen zu finden die zwar existieren, aber eben nicht offziell. Wer sich vor 10 Jahren eine 10a ans Haus geklebt hat und das auch im Personalausweis hat bekommt das auch bei OpenStreetMap - Auch wenn das im ALK nicht zu finden ist.

Es geht in Rheda-Wiedenbrück weiter. Dort sollten schon so gut wie alle Adressen existieren, aber lange nicht alle Gebäude ... Vermutlich fehlen 2-7000 Gebäude ...

We've completed work on the San Francisco building footprint dataset. We added or modified over 150,000 buildings in about 5 months of tracing with a team of three. My colleague Ruben just posted stats on the Mapbox blog. Here's an animation of all changes.

firefox and id giving troubles

Posted by kujaz2 on 9 July 2014 in English (English)

all of a sudden, editing with ID in firefox is impossible. no keyboard shortcuts will work, the mouse pointer will remain in hand shape, clicking on an object shows the short arrow while the left key is pressed, but no selection takes place. instead, the attributes of the first object that was clicked are shown, but mixed up with other, totally unrelated attributes (e.g. maximum speed for a house). what's happening here?

Palmeira dos Índios - #1504

Posted by Bonix-Mapper on 9 July 2014 in Brazilian Portuguese (Português do Brasil)

Praticamente esgotado o mapeamento com os dados do IBGE.

Muitos locais afastados do centro da cidade não constam dos dados oficias.

Estou marcando alguns pontos de interesse público por aproximação entre os dados oficias e as imagens de satélite.

Depois disto restará marcar as vias que aparecem nas imagens de satélite.

Contador em 1504.

Hello OSM

Hay categorías de elementos que no encuentro...

Posted by mmon01 on 8 July 2014 in Spanish (Español)

Estoy actualizando la información de varias ciudades en Cuba y acá hay una alta densidad de zonas de cultivos en el interior y la periferia de las ciudades, con proliferación de "casas de cultivo" que son estructuras metálicas cubiertas de un material que permite (y regula) la penetración del sol y la lluvia y crea un ambiente controlado para los cultivos, PERO NO ENCUENTRO una denominación capaz de caracterizar estas construcciones. ¿Alguien me puede orientar?
