The Great Canadian Mailbox Heist about 2 months ago

Same for Polish Post, it seems they don't know themselves where their postboxes are :)

Mapping Kindergartens While Doing My Fieldwork Using Maps.me 5 months ago

This is what we call real, active mapping! Keep up the good work! :)

When planning to go to a completely unmapped area, it's good to edit it beforehand - tracing just the roads from aerial imagery. This way you get a bit better prepared for further surveying on site.

Einen bekannten Namen erraten 5 months ago

Regionalbusverkehre sind eine echte Quelle von solchen und noch besseren Absurditäten. Wie Saar-Pfalz-Bus (jetzt hat sich diese Firma in "Südwest Mobil" umbenannt, wahrscheinlich um den alten Scham loszuwerden): eine seit 20 Jahren nicht existierende Haltestelle immer noch im Fahrplan? Ja wohl!

Sei geduldig mit den E-Mails, normalerweise brauchen diese Betreiber zwei Jahre, um "vielen Dank für Ihre Anmerkung" zu antworten.

Random OSM World Stats 8 months ago

The total lenght of the pedestrian roads in the world is 29192.2 kilometers

I just committed an edit, now it should be 29192.7 kilometers :D

Can't get Lake Entiat to show up 9 months ago

*I fixed it now

Can't get Lake Entiat to show up 9 months ago

There was a gap in the chain of "outer" elements, between ways number 385784210 and 36740450. If fixed it now, the lake should be visible soon.

Data map VietNam 9 months ago

@GOwin, leave it. It's just a spammer.

The city of Chandigarh is taking a very good shape on OSM. 10 months ago

It looks like a city designed top-down by one architect :) Such places are easy to map, with lots of repetitive objects. I did a similar (though much smaller) settlement in Sweden some time ago: http://www.openstreetmap.org/#map=16/59.5075/17.7567

biggest mobility quest solved: All Roads to rome - made with GraphHopper and OSM 12 months ago

"502 Bad Gateway"

Witam wszystkich about 1 year ago

@Wh4tEver po co to coś witasz i powodzenia życzysz? Przecież na pierwszy rzut oka widać, że to tzw. pozycjonowanie jakiejś śmiesznej strony. Tfu! Zgłoszone.

Trabalho de Geografia about 1 year ago

Regarding your only, single changeset: what does a pharmacy do in a boundary relation? Respond please.

Trabalho de Geografia about 1 year ago

Currently you just added a single node without tags, not connected to anything. What is it supposed to be? Do you need help? By the way, please use changeset comments.

What to do about Bus routes in Puebla? about 1 year ago

The "seagull mapper" did his edits three years ago, these routes might be totally outdated today.

Top 25 cities in the world by the number of POI about 1 year ago

How about a statistic of POI-density in OpenStreetMap, in POIs per km² of city polygon?

Mark Waypoints on OSM over 1 year ago

In what file format do you keep those waypoints?

I think you could view your waypoints as a layer in JOSM (or some other editor) and add natural=spring (or amenity=drinking_water if applicable) to OpenStreetMap at the places you marked. Pay attention to underlying OpenStreetMap data, some water sources might already have been added.

Add a map note about it.

Spam! Reported.

To all recklessly editing newbies over 1 year ago

@SomeoneElse This new user is a part of some larger action (primary school teachers asked to add their schools or something like that), an action that seems to lack any coordination or standards.

As a novice mapper, before even doing my first edit, I read OSM Wiki and many tutorials. Of course I did some mistakes, correcting them in later edits. But I was cautious, all because of my respect to the project and its data. I have no respect to people who join and start editing like frenetic doodling kids, without reading any introduction before. Forgive me I'm such a badass...

What's your OpenStreetMap story? over 1 year ago

Back in 2013, I was using an Android app for viewing offline maps. There was a notice that the map data for this app comes from OpenStreetMap. From curiosity, I checked what OpenStreetMap is. Being already a Wikipedia contributor and having an inclination to wander around and explore my surroundings, I immediately found the project idea brilliant. Checking the map data of my hometown and thinking "what a mess!" I decided to share some local knowledge and to try doing some edits.

Before contributing my first changes, I carefully studied tutorials in OpenStreetMap Wiki. I was terribly afraid I might break some valuable data by mistake.
