Hey, Bryce! Bike repair!

Posted by Be A Mapper on 17 November 2014 in English (English)

And this one was inspired by Bryce's mailing list post.


This one is at the Roundhouse in Toronto at the foot of the CN Tower.

Bike parking

Updated some bicycle infrastructure near the Roundhouse in Toronto.

bike share toronto station at the roundhouse

Relocated the bike share stand per Bing imagery, it's on the north side of that enourmous vent. And changed name to operator, and the old Bixi brand to the current Bike Share Toronto.

Oh, hey, and more post and ring bike parking too.

Project #OSMselfie: Put a human face on edits

Posted by Be A Mapper on 17 November 2014 in English (English)

I'm writing a new OpenStreetMap presentation and I'm looking for images for my slide deck. Ideally, images of happy mappers and the things that they are mapping and improving in OpenStreetMap. Even better, would be mapping things that are typically way better in OpenStreetMap than in other sources.

An Example

This edit reduced the extent of a parking lot because it is now fenced for imminent construction of a new condo.

and this is the #OSMselfie I took during the survey

Surely you can do better

Go ahead and post your #OSMselfie survey pics.

If you really want to help me with my slide deck, I'm looking for photos that illustrate the people in OpenStreetMap who make a difference by improving local data for others. So if you mapped a new accessibility ramp on a building, or a new public bike rack, or a new playground, or anything else awesome and wonderful. I'd love to have your photo, and your wonderful visage in my slides.

Please feel free to do a better job with the photography than I do. :-)

Best regards and happy mapping,
