New Imagery for former Yugoslavia

New imagery
Hi from croatia mappers!
The U.S. Geological Survey has made public maps of the whole Ex Yugoslavia under the Public Domain license, which means we can use them in the Openstreetmap project. List of maps in pdf format here:
https://www.lib.utexas.edu/maps/topo/former_yugoslavia/
Unfortunately, not all maps are scanned, the yellow areas are available:
http://www.lib.utexas.edu/maps/topo/former_yugoslavia/index_map.jpg
Our member dodobas geocoded the maps and we put them on the server maintained by user hbogner on the Faculty of Geodesy in Zagreb.
We are inviting you to use the imagery to fill the Openstreetmap with as much usefull data possible!
I suggest you use the tag source=U.S. Defense Mapping Agency for the elements drawn over these backgrounds so we can easily find what is drawn with these maps.
How to use them?
In JOSM:
Go to Edit > Preferences... > WMS TMS > + (Plus sign lower right) > TMS
Menu name= USGS osm-hr
TMS URL = http://tms.osm-hr.org/1.0.0/all_ustopo/{zoom}/{x}/{y}.png
Screenshot: http://osm-hr.org/josm.png
In Potlatch:
Go to Background > Edit...
Make a new line:
Name= USGS osm-hr
URL= http://tms.osm-hr.org/1.0.0/all_ustopo/$z/$x/$y.png
Screenshot: http://osm-hr.org/potlach.jpg
If there are any problems, contact us!

P.S. Watch out for bad data that is going to be erased because of the license change on April 1. More about that on the page about Remapping:

Nove podloge
Pozdrav od hrvatskih mapera!
Američka institucija U.S. Geological Survey je objavila karte cijelog područja bivše Jugoslavije pod public domain licencom, što znači da ih možemo koristiti na Openstreetmap projektu. Lista sa pdf-ovima ovdje:
https://www.lib.utexas.edu/maps/topo/former_yugoslavia/
Nažalost nisu skenirane sve karte, žuto su obojane regije sa podlogama:
http://www.lib.utexas.edu/maps/topo/former_yugoslavia/index_map.jpg
Naš član dodobas je geokodirao karte i stavili smo ih na server kojeg održava korisnik hbogner na Geodetskom fakultetu u Zagrebu.
Zato vas pozivamo da koristite te podloge kako bi popunili Openstreetmap projekt sa što više korisnih podataka!
Predlažem da se za elemente ucrtane preko tih podloga koristi tag source=U.S. Defense Mapping Agency kako bi lako našli što je mapirano sa tim kartama.
Kako ih koristiti?
U JOSMu:
Kliknuti na Edit > Preferences... > WMS TMS > + (Plus dolje desno) > TMS
Menu name= U.S. Defense osm-hr
TMS URL= http://tms.osm-hr.org/1.0.0/all_ustopo/{zoom}/{x}/{y}.png
Screenshot: http://osm-hr.org/josm.png
U Potlatchu:
Kliknuti na Background > Edit...
I napraviti novi upis:
Name= U.S. Defense osm-hr
URL= http://tms.osm-hr.org/1.0.0/all_ustopo/$z/$x/$y.png
Screenshot: http://osm-hr.org/potlach.jpg
Ako ima problema, javite nam se!

P.S.
Pripazite na loše podatke koji će se zbog promjene licence brisati 1. Aprila. Više o tome na wiki stranici o Remapiranju:
