See who's adding townlands/baronies in Ireland! 14 days ago

I had no idea there were so few mappers mapping townlands.

What are you looking at, the last editor of all townland objects?

I'm fed up with all this spam on the RSS feed, especially Chinese about 1 month ago

No one has volunteered to contribute the code to allow reports to be made for spam, enable captchas, or that kind of stuff. If you know some rails, that would be very welcome.

Supporting Women in FOSS and OSM 2 months ago

If you were successful in making OpenStreetMap US more welcoming to women, I hear the OSMF is having an election soon...

Can we have sysnonyms? 2 months ago

Because if you do this without being careful, you’ll expand Doctor to Drive, or expand things that aren’t abbreviations. There are local QA tools, like the French Osmose, that encourage the users to correct abbreviations.

Fixing common & possible Tagging Mistakes 5 months ago

Is there a QA tool that integrates these? I know Osmose does something similar, but it works mostly in French-speaking countries.

OpenStreetBugs Phase out: Done 8 months ago

Well done. Out of the 34000 you closed, how many were done automatically? Could the same automatic cleanup tools now be used for notes?

scrolling the map in JSOM on MacOS 8 months ago

The team is indeed working on this exact issue:

I like to use ctrl-arrows to move.

SOTM-US is coming... 8 months ago

Wasn't it last weekend?

Verify conflicted tag 9 months ago

Oui, JOSM! Tu vas ramer au début, tu râleras sur java et sur les raccourcis clavier qui changent, mais tu comprendras vite pourquoi les contributeurs plus matures utilisent tous ça.

Lost city in Darfur about 1 year ago

This is really quite fascinating. I'm not sure I searched the right way, but there doesn't seem to be a wikipedia article for that location either.

Soissons au XVIIIe siècle over 1 year ago

Il a visiblement importé les bâtiments du cadastre sans dessiner toutes les rues :p.

Ad ogni navigatore la sua OSM over 1 year ago

Welcome to OSM!

Would there be any use for a builder=* tag? over 1 year ago

Wouldn't it be hard to verify after a couple of years?

nom officiel des rues de Namur over 1 year ago

Attention, est-ce qu'il y a une licence libre pour la liste qui permettrait son utilisation pour OpenStreetMap, ou est-ce que ça ne pourra que servir de référence ?

First Entry over 1 year ago

Actually, Google uses reCaptcha to digitise house numbers so it's definitely an interesting idea.

On implied turn restrictions and armchair mapping almost 2 years ago

I think we can all agree that the intersection isn't designed well. From the tracks on the ground, it does look like people are de facto ignoring the turn restriction if it exists.

I think it all boils down to Florida law. NE2, would you be OK with restoring the turn restriction if crossing the white line is indeed forbidden?

From the code:

316.089 Driving on roadways laned for traffic.

[...]

(3) Official traffic control devices may be erected directing specified traffic to use a designated lane or designating those lanes to be used by traffic moving in a particular direction regardless of the center of the roadway; and drivers of vehicles shall obey the directions of every such device.

(4) Official traffic control devices may be installed prohibiting the changing of lanes on sections of roadway, and drivers of vehicles shall obey the directions of every such device.

Editor trial run almost 2 years ago

From the wiki page, it's going to be incredibly nice. I'm impatient to try it.

New User almost 2 years ago

Welcome, and congratulations on your first edit!

Thing that drives me crazy almost 2 years ago

Dion Dock, are you running Bartender? There seems to be a conflict between the two; the JOSM issue goes away if I quit Bartender.

Test driving iD about 2 years ago

Isn't that building misaligned? :)

You should draw with the roof, then move the entire shape down and left a bit so that it aligns with the visible parts of the ground floor, to compensate for the distortion.
