Pokemon Go ==> OSM Go (DE) 29 days ago

Wäre es nicht die Pokemon-Marke, dann hätte dieses Spiel keine Sau interessiert. Von daher glaube ich nicht, dass es möglich wäre mit einem OSM-Spiel eine kritische Masse an Nutzern zu erreichen. :(

New road style for the Default map style - the full version about 1 year ago

One consideration that also went into the choice of the original colors was the use of OSM tiles as background/basemap. Your new red is very bold and prominent in comparison. But since making your own tiles is quite easy nowadays I am not sure how much this should count.

I am personally not a fan of huge shields but that's because I am not a car driver.

Do you also care about color-vision impairment / accessibility? It's a major problem and really not something you should attempt tackling (I speak from experience :D ) but for the final touches it might be worth to play with ColorOracle and see if small changes can improve the separation for red/green deficient people.

Das ist nicht so einfach, zwei Probleme, die mir spontan einfallen:

Die Layer wissen nicht voneinander, Labels könnten nicht so einfach gut platziert werden.

x-mal soviele Requests an die Server.

This is nice, thanks for sharing.

Ahaha, that's awesome :D

Any chance to get this for Android 2.3? It looks fantastic.

Verfügbare Tiroler Hausnummerliste für OSM-Auswertungen almost 2 years ago

Ich fände es in diesem Fall garnicht so schlimm eine divergente Skala zu nehmen, durch die Klassenwahl (nur 2 bis 50%, 5 darüber) ist ja eh schon eine Art Wertung drin. Wenn du sagst "unter 50% ist ganz schlecht" und "ab 80% ist schon ziemlich gut", dann passt das :)

Verfügbare Tiroler Hausnummerliste für OSM-Auswertungen almost 2 years ago

Ich würde empfehlen ein anderes Farbschema zu verwenden, zB "7-class RdYlBu" oder "7-class PiYG" von

Das aktuelle Schema ist nicht intuitiv und ich finde es schwer zu sehen, welcher Wert wo ist.

wer kann helfen? almost 2 years ago

Hey, mach ruhig Fehler und auch mal was kaputt. Ist doch halb so schlimm. Jeder lernt einmal! Sofern du offen bist, Kritik annehmen kannst und gewillt bist es auszubessern, sollte das gar kein Problem sein. :)

Du kannst einfach was mappen und dann im Forum, auf der Mailingliste, im IRC oder auch in einem Diary bitten, dass jemand drüber kuckt.

Verschiedene GIS-Dienste des Landes NRW about 2 years ago

Ist es denn erlaubt, von denen abzuzeichnen? now has OSM-powered bike routing for Western Europe about 2 years ago

Unfiltered first impressions (Opera 12, potentially misconfigured), always sound more grumpy that intended:

I panned to northern Germany. Not sure what the red dots are, probably long bike travel routes. But what are the blue lines then? Must be something very different, motorways? Looked for a legend/key, didn't find one linked.

Zooming on Hamburg, I recognise the motorways as I suspected. The spacing between the red dots is so big, that I sometimes have trouble seeing their "line". Eg on

Oh awesome, there is a circular blue dotted route around Hamburg? I want to try that some day. I would love to be able to click on it and see details about it.

I clicked on the map (trying to get details of the blue dots), got a marker instead and I seem unable to remove it again. If I click it, it says "1. footpath". One of the yellow icons looks like a rubber eraser, nope GPS. Another might be an undo arrow, nope. The icons have no mouseover text hint. Hm... I clicked again, have a start and end point now. I select the end coordinate in the form field and delete it, hit enter and both points disappear from the map. Yay (oops :P ). Remove the coordinate text from the other field as well. Now both fields have ? icons next to them which do nothing.

Zooming/panning some more. Looks like there is a starbucks invasion in the Hafencity: Seems weird that there are almost none of those symbols elsewhere.

Zoomed all the way on the blue dotted line, no name or anything. I really want to know more!

On the red dots for train stations of Bahrenfeld and Reeperbahn are not visible. This is kind of a pet peeve of mine because OsmAnd and Oruxmaps love doing that just when I am looking for public transport. I'd suggest always showing them.

The faint green/blue dotted lines are quite hard to see. I imagine all the transparent colored dotted lines to be really hard for people with red-green problems.

On the main focus for me seems railways and motorways, they are so bold.

Enough cartography!

Made a route in my neighborhood, worked well. Got some yellow 1 though? Found out what that means by playing more. Eww, miles in the sidebar? You filthy imperialist!

Made a route showing some weird routing, clicked on "link to here" and lost it. Not sure where to click to "share" it. You get a screenshot instead:

The label on the right "Ha" is cut off at the tile border and does not continue on the left one from it:

I'll probably stick with Komoot which I have grown to like (your highlighting of existing routes is a great difference though). :)

OSM Node Density 2014 about 2 years ago

That's gorgeous! I want that Europe image framed on my wall. :) about 2 years ago

Hey, you use red and green to show opening hours. Lots of people have problems with that color combination. I'd suggest rather using a pattern to differentiate instead of just color. Or maybe filled black for closed and inner white for open.

Meine erste Versuche mit TileMill over 2 years ago

Schicker Post, ich hoffe du liest das hier noch :)

Bisschen Feedback zur Kartographie:

Rot <-> Grün ist eine SEHR bedeutungsschwangere Farbskala, du sagst mit deiner Karte quasi, dass mehr Ausländer = schlecht ist! Nimm lieber ein vorurteil-loses Farbschema.

Generell gilt, wenn du eine divergierende Farbskala nimmst, dann sollte es einen Grund haben und der Mittelpunkt irgendeine Bedeutung. In diesem Beispiel könntest du zB sagen "weniger/mehr Ausländer als im Durchschnitt". hat schöne Farbskalen.

Transparente Choroplethen-Karte über einer Basemap sieht immer etwas komisch aus (und die Farben stimmen nicht mehr mit der Legende überein). Vielleicht kannst du einfach ein paar Labels über die Karte legen so als Orientierung?

Irgendwie sehen die Linien der Polygone sehr pixelig aus, ist vielleicht Absicht, aber ich finde es komisch.

Komisch, dass toreal() nicht geklappt hat. csvt-Dateien finde ich auch super nervig... :)

Bigger Data Collection of GPS Cordinates for Art over 2 years ago

You can easily load GPS tracks in QGIS as vector layer. Then you are not bound to some proprietary technology like Google Maps.

Gute Arbeit!

OpenStreetMap Isn't All That Open, Let's Change That and Drop Share-Alike over 2 years ago

I don't see how dropping share-alike would allow NYC to take OSM data and publish it as PD. The attribution clause would still be required.

The wrong side of mapping transient events in OSM over 2 years ago

Some of the biggest public coverage comes from the humanitarian mapping after disasters which by definition is transient. Maybe on the long run OSM needs some flags about the estimated live span of objects?
