Work on some notes! 5 months ago

@rorym: I appreciate your comment. I am taking care of the notes in my home region or during my travel. What I would like to see is an integrated service unifying the separate resources of OSM notes, Keepright and other QA tools, so we can have it all in one place and fix them more easily.

Inauguration du journal about 1 year ago

A mon avis, ce sont des traces GPS d'une personne qui a oublié d'éteinder son appareil en rentrant dans cette maison. Le GPS perd alors une bonne partie de sa précision et commence à "sauter" dans tous les sens, créant ainsi ce type de traces vagabondes.

OSM Tracker and me -- almost 2 years ago

I feel your pain and frustration! Generally, I bring along two GPS devices: one dedicated Garmin eTrex plus a phone running OSMand. So, there is little risk of having zero usable traces at the end.

Sorry, natürlich Schweiz!

Da sieht man - auch in deutschland ist noch lange nicht alles kartiert. Danke für Ihren Beitrag und weiterhin frohes Mappen!

People who blindly "fix" things in OSM about 2 years ago

Perhaps the guy is from the UK and has put the "oneway" direction as he would expect in his own country... :-) Also, this example shows well how important it is to document the changes we make by adding a meaningful comment. This helps to understand if the intention of the mapper matches the nature of the change.

Improving the OSM map - why don't we? [9] about 2 years ago

My suggestion to fix the issue manually, at least partly: Create a new maproulette task. Would this be a conceivable solution?

Oui, certes!

Rwanada: A Country on the Move over 2 years ago

Dear Jonathan,

Thank you for this interesting article. It is indeed good to read that your country is slowly and steadily recovering from the horrific events of 1994. Rwanda is an encoureaging exception in a continent that appears to many people as the home of failed states (Libya, Somalia just to name a few). Rebuilding a country is always a tremendous effort, requiring millions of small steps. Let's hope that the OSM people through their work will provide one of these steps.

Take care! Hendric

Öffentlicher Verkehr WIEN over 2 years ago


Für mich war die Kartierung von öffentlichen verkehrsmitteln immer ein Buch mit sieben Siegeln, da habe ich mich nie herangetraut. Sollten Dich Deine Mapping-Aktivitäten nach Perchtoldsdorf verschlagen, dann helfe ich gern mit!

Freundliche Grüße! Hendric

GPS track "eye" effect in trees almost 3 years ago


I can confirm having seen a similar effect, even though I did not systematically evaluate it like you did. My highly speculative explanation attempt is that the GPS device appears to unknowingly add some kind of "inertia" to the track, so that when you change direction, it takes a little moment for the device to account for this change and this creates a little deviation from the real location. I have had my fair share of frustration when trying to map zig-zag paths in forest areas...

In general, your tracks still look as precise as could be expected from a GPS device.

Kind regards, Hendric

What to do this weekend? over 3 years ago

Thanks also from me for this suggestion. I am actually a big fan of KeepRight and I fixed quite a number of occurrences in my region. I would like to see an integration of the KeepRight checking algorithm with the "report error" function in the basic OSM webpage. Just like they integrated OpenStreetBugs earlier.

Homburg Track Corrections over 3 years ago


The tag "highway=track" should be used for any way that is usable at least by an offroad vehicle or tractor. If it's to narrow for that, the tag "highway=path" is more appropriate.

You can classify track quality with the tag "tracktype=gradeX" where X is a number between 1 to 5. This allows you to distiguish asphalt tracks from uncondensed tracks using natural ground.

You can define the "ease of use" of hiking ways (paths or tracks) with the "sac_scale:value" tag, where "value" defines the skill level required to walk this way. See wiki for details.

You can include a "mtb_scale" tag for defining a difficulty rating of the way when using it with a bicycle.

I hope this helps! Hendric

Perchtoldsdorf - Hydrantennetz over 3 years ago

Hallo Lokalhorst,

Danke für Deine nützlichen Kommentare! Ich habe den Nutzer freundlich angeschrieben und gleich noch die FF Perchtoldsdorf in Kopie gesetzt. Mal schauen was passiert.

Freundliche Grüße! Hendric

Häuser und Adressen in Perchtoldsdorf, Niederösterreich, AT over 3 years ago

Hallo an alle! Vielen Dank für die nützlichen Kommentare! kannte ich noch nicht - ich habe es mir gleich mal in mein JOSM installiert. Schaut sehr gut aus und belegt, dass Bing in diesem Bereich kaum Versatz hat.

Ich mach dann mal weiter... Hendric

Auswertung der Straßen- und Hausnummernliste over 3 years ago

Eine vorbildliche Initiative der Stadt Troisdorf! Gratuliere!

Parkgaragen gelöscht over 3 years ago


Ich kann Deinen Ärger sehr wohl verstehen! Wenn ich irgendwo mappe, wo ich aus Zeit- oder Zugänglichkeitsgründen den Edit nicht ganz beenden kann, schreibe ich normalerweise einen Tag "fixme" - "Der weg geht noch weiter" (oder ähnlich) hinzu. So weiss jeder Nutzer, dass hier noch etwas verbessert werden muss. Wenn ich jedoch einen Edit vornehme, von dem ich weiss, dass hier schnell wer was verpfuschen kann (zB wenn Bing ein altes Bild hat, sich die Lage vor Ort aber inzwischen geändert hat), dann setze ich einen "note" Tag mit der passenden Erklärung.

Viel Spass beim Mappen! Hendric

Another happy customer over 5 years ago

Good news!
I am positive that the added awareness of OSM amongst people who specifically spend time with a GPS will bring us a number of new contributors.

Mapping Zirl in 2012 over 5 years ago

This sounds like an ambitious plan, so I whish you all the best for successfully mapping this town!
I might suggest you to take contact with the Mayor's office, maybe they can help you out with cataster plans and maybe even grant some kind of financial support?

Kind regards,
