|Need help: which osm apps to recommend?||almost 3 years ago||
Navit (ZANavit) is good.
|Much more Odsherred||over 3 years ago||
I am sure there are some errors.
But sometimes it is also really hard to see if roads are connected.
I tend not to connect roads if I am not sure.
|Odsherred||almost 4 years ago||
Ja, der sker da noget.
Det ærgrer mig lidt, da jeg voksede op der. Hvis jeg havde haft en GPS dengang, havde det set helt anderledes ud :-)
|Motivation (or how to get more of it)||almost 4 years ago||
You could make games without jeopardizing quality.
For example you select 25 random, unmapped roads in a given area (e.g., Slagelse, Kalundborg, Holbæk triangle). The list is secret. Players go mapping and claim a road when they finish mapping it. If a player claim a road on the list, it is verified that it is a good mapping, the score is updated, revealing the name of the road. The other players have a couple of days to protest based on quality.

>How long have you been using OSM?
>Approximately how often do you use and edit OSM?
>What are your incentives for editing in OSM?
>What is your preferred method of attaining data to upload (e.g. GPS points, >digitizing, uploading photographs)?
>Do you feel there is much disparity in the reliability of OSM data?
If so, do you think this could be the result of the socio-economic dynamics of an area or the method of attaining data etc?
Certainly the method. I.e. Copenhagen and surrounding (East half of
Popular remote tourist areas are probably most reliable because they are

If you mean if you can set a waypoint on you GPS, and then add it to OSM using the coordinates, then yes.
I do not know you GPS, but I use MaemoMapper and I can set a waypoint (mark), export the GPX, open it in Merkaartor and it automatically add the point.
|Averaging of Traces||about 4 years ago||
Maybe you can get help from User:findvej import script:
|What to do when "your" road conflicts with someone else's view of it.||about 4 years ago||
I generally go for the averaging too.
But sometimes it is obvious the you have the better trace. Ie. when you have been walking down the middle of the roads. And the previous track seems to be from a car.
Sometimes you have to do something. I.e. when you have mapped several roads that turns out to be crossing the railroad, where they should not be.
And some roads are made from satellite images. I assume that my GPS is more precise or at least that different GPS tracks at different times will even out whereas it seems that satellite images are often off in one direction.
|Best practice: offline mapping?||over 4 years ago||
I usually do not make too many notes in Denmark since every address is already imported, making it possible to figure out roadnames in most cases.
A voice recording utility would be nice. It does not necessarily have to be geotagged. Timestamps would do. Just a application that would make a new mp3/ogg file every time you pressed "record". They it would be trivial to match sound files with streets using file time-stamps.
I have an old mp3 player, that can record. I will give it a try.
