"Maproulette" in JOSM 11 months ago

Ich bin daran zu überlegen, ob mit einem ReCAPTCHA die Leute, die sich bei OSM (oder so) registrieren wollen - und das CAPTCHA ausfüllen müssen - dazu zu bringen, genau solche fehlenden Verbindungen zu bestätigen - oder abzulehnen; mit "gesundem Menschenverstand", ansonsten wenn es sein muss mit Luftbild. Wir werden aber sicher nicht vor Dezember 2013 fertig sein - von daher ist deine Wette also noch nicht in Gefahr :-).

1 million is a big number over 1 year ago

Hi Harry

Nice blog. One million is a big absolute number indeed - and also in relative terms: it was you who reported almost exactly one year ago about the 500,000th signed up user of OSM in this thread: http://lists.openstreetmap.org/pipermail/talk/2011-December/060829.html .

Yours, Stefan

P.S. Thanks for mentioning Kort which is a thesis work of two students of mine! There will be data for whole world soon.

OSM-Diashow over 2 years ago

Vielen Dank für die schönen Kartenbilder! Wäre ev. noch nützlich, wenn es ein diashow.html (o.ä.) dazu gäbe.

LG, Stefan

osm2postgresql :o) over 3 years ago

In support of Andy Allan's hint to possible confusion with osm2pgsql I've added a remark to the owner of this project, mayeul, at this "Open Discussion": https://sourceforge.net/projects/osm2postgresql/forums/forum/1683570

The Java XAPI over 3 years ago

Is this XAPI UI really reflect the syntax of XAPI? Currently there is only one tag predicate. Isn't it possible to query more than one, like

http://openstreetmap.us/xapi/api/0.6/*[amenity=parking][capacity:disabled=*][bbox=-0.57,51.24,0.31,51.75]

Actually, even the OSM wiki leaves this question open:
http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Xapi#Predicates

It would be nice anyhow that the wiki page get's enhanced with a real syntax definition.
