Experience

Posted by Eriks Zelenka on 31 July 2011 in English (English)

Fuh, I spend half of my day today at police station because some paranoid guy called the police. We had a conversation with him and I tried to explain him what I'm doing, with no success.. The area I mapped had quite a few burglaries recently. But still they arrested me with no evidence, after I explained them what and why I'm doing. Three cars, six policeman, six hours enclosed for nothing. Even better they did search at my flat as well. Did anyone experienced something similar ? BTW next time I'm going to check crime map (http://www.police.uk/) at least being in UK to avoid such an experiences.

Finally finished mapping along 19th September "Action Arrow 100" route. Details about this event are here:

I was taking snaps of Pubs, Churches, speed/height/weigth limits, some schools & Village Halls. I realised also how much is unmapped in Buckinghampshire... May be next year will map some other POIs there :)

wiki.openstreetmap.org search plugin

Just created new search plug-in for FireFox to search within wiki.openstreetmap.org , can be installed from here:

While using JOSM sometimes there is a need to find detailed description of the tag or tag set, this plug-in should simplify this search a little bit.
