Address mapping is a slooooow process but it is undoubtedly valuable data and data that fits perfectly within OSM

neat little service that, I like it
does it result in much data being opened?
|#MapLesotho - Heading towards a full basemap||23 days ago||
Thanks, yes we have had a great year and we've some great plans for this year too
I'm not sure what you mean by get more feedback? Most of the current users of the data in lesotho are government planners and there is a nice loop going where they look at an area, map it, then use the data to assist with further planning for the same area. Is that what you mean?
Mapillary will indeed be fantastic fior somewhere like Lesotho and I personally will be pushing it a lot when we visit in a few weeks.
There is a high % of smartphone penetration, so much so that Vodacom, the main phone / broadband provider are skipping any further DSL rollout due to poor penetration of landlines and instead going straight to LTE / 4G mobile networks across a lrage portion of the country.
This will be a big help to OSM mapping but the big risk is data charges. If they make it too expensive it'll die on its proverbial ass

as always, nice work folks
|Now Live: Notes Posted By Scout Users||about 2 months ago||
If reports /notes are what users are comfortable with in terms of improving the underlying data, more power to them :)
I look forward to seeing these notes popping up around the place
|See who's adding townlands/baronies in Ireland!||about 2 months ago||
Nice one rorym!
Fyi, the link to a users OSM page is written as follows
So its just opening townlands.ie again rather than jumping out to OSM
|COFFEEDEX & the single-tag revolution||2 months ago||
When I saw this I had the same thought as Joost, something like this for wifi would be a good idea
This could be expanded to many different uses e.g. Bus stops (rtpi, shelter, recessed etc) fast food (cuisine), parking (free or not), schools (level, mixed, ethos, etc)
Heck the toilet map recently reported on would benefit massively from something like this
As a proof of concept I think it's fantastic and a great example of what can now be done because the groundwork is done
Props to you Tom

This is fantastic, truly it is!
I'm a stats nut so something like this is right up my street. I really am looking forward to seeing what comes of this and hope to see this grow and grow.

Nice work Richard
|Kiln not seen(rendered) in OpenStreetMap||3 months ago||
Yup, the 2 mappa mercia links posted above are what I use for most of my maps starting points now, they make it so simple
If you have some kind of icon already created aswell for kiln's, you can use that I think, Robjn would probably be able to tell you how exactly, I havent done it yet, but am planning to soon

This is brilliant.
For future development something I would recommend from a personal point of view would be:

Once you do learn it though, you'll likely never go back
In saying that, I use iD in work where I can't instal josm on some machines

In that case, have a look at fieldpapers.org
