|Is it the moment for OpenStreetMap?||about 1 month ago||
Spot on! I love this post. It's not like we need to bow down to anyone or anything to continue doing what we already do.
|Going to be using OSM for my charity walk next year, need some advice.||about 1 month ago||
A dedicated gps receiver is often better suited than a smartphone for tasks like the one you describe since it's batteries will usually last longer. There are a number of ways to load OSM maps onto Garmin receivers.
There's no real need to remove this diary btw.
|Bitte um Mithilfe zur Beseitigung eines erheblichen Fehlers, den ich verursacht habe||about 2 months ago||
Another possibility could be to simply revert your changesets. I could do that if you wish.
|First steps from Ganløse||3 months ago||
Hi and welcome.
I recieve a feed from http://resultmaps.neis-one.org/newestosm.php and discovered your contributions this morning. I regularly spend time checking what other mappers are doing, especially the less experienced. I'm sure you noticed (since I left notes on some of your changesets) that I made some changes to some of your work and I hope you're ok with that.
|Basemap||5 months ago||
What basemap? Do you mean the Standard Layer as found on osm.org?

|The past year and a half in review||5 months ago||
One thing JOSM has that I consider indispensible and which I use practically all the time when editing, is the "Improve Way Accuracy" mode.
Apparently lots of JOSM users have no idea about this mode and many even questions it's usability when they first hear about it. Big mistake. You have no idea how much more efficient this mode will make you as a general mapper (once you've learned to use it of course). Give it a try please.
There's a short video explaining it here.
|Website for asking to improve just one area in OpenStreetMap (or paying for improvement)||6 months ago||
I've considered making a profile on Fiverr offering to fix small areas for a small amount of money.
|gpx trace||6 months ago||
Toni, converting gpx traces to data and then upload to osm is NOT recommended. What you should do instead is go to your profile on openstreetmap.org and click the link called "my gps-traces". There you should find yet another link called "Upload gps-trace". Click that and you should be at a form appropriate for uploading.
|First thoughts||8 months ago||
Also please be aware that editing OSM isn't nearly as cumbersome (once you're fairly familiar with it of course) as editing using Google Mapmaker. A couple years I decided to test out Mapmaker and discovered that they wouldn't even let me put in some cycleways and a few other features that I had put on OSM already and also that I would'nt ever be able to edit at more than roughly 1/10 the speed at which I was editing OSM (mind you though that I also then was an experienced JOSM user).
Good luck to you
|Geocache camouflage with OpenStreetMap||about 1 year ago||
Wow.. What a great idea!
|More GPX tracks, etc.||about 1 year ago||
Thank you for sharing this
|Telia Navigator||about 1 year ago||
Hvorfor tror du det er os der har gjort det?
|I am new to this digital mapping tool...||about 1 year ago||
For bicycle navigation I mainly use a Garmin device loaded with OpenStreetMap data covering all of Denmark. For other uses i like to use OsmAnd for Android. OsmAnd does routing for bicycle, foot and car and so should cover your needs nicely. It will allow you to easily download a map covering all of Denmark (which should fit quite nicely on most phones) in one go. And yes, it can show you your current position at any time.
Less technical persons might want to look at MapsWithMe for Android, which is a much simpler app than OsmAnd, which also lets you download the entire map of Denmark (and other countries/areas) in one go.
Using a smartphone for navigation you might want to consider a handlebar mount and some battery backup.
|The hazard of relying on commercial implementations of Open Source projects||over 1 year ago||
A popular (also among many humanitarian workers in i.e. Africa) OSM based offline routing app for Android is the open source OsmAnd. There are several commercial OSM based alternatives such as Mapfactor Navigator and GPS Navigator by Skobbler. For mere mapviewing MapsWithMe is fast and very popular. Also note that there are several sources for premade OSM based maps for many Garmin models. Vespucci is for editing OpenStreetMap, but please note that it is not exactly easy to use.
|What is the OpenStreetMap convention? Do we tag addresses on buildings or on separate nodes?||over 1 year ago||
In Denmark (that small country in northern Europe), where all addresses are imported, addresses (as I understand it) by law do not belong to any building. They are imported as separate nodes and we prefer to keep them that way. Occasionally a foreigner comes by, draws a few buildings and in the proces includes the address in the building. We consider that an error and regularly corrects it.

Wonderfull story. Thank you for sharing.
|Interest in Editing||almost 2 years ago||
You are so welcome
|Problem in Editing Map||almost 2 years ago||
Did you choose a background? And if you did please note that there isn't e.g. Bing imagery coverage everywhere. If you don't have any imagery in your area (or it's outdated), gps-tracks are a good option.
|Anyone has a tool to fix this kind of way?||about 2 years ago||
That's some really ugly stuff. By far the easiest thing to do is to delete and remap. I rarely use Potlatch, but even in JOSM fixing self-crossing roads like these tends to be really cumbersome.
