Supporting Women in FOSS and OSM 4 days 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? 8 days 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 3 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 6 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 6 months ago

The team is indeed working on this exact issue:

I like to use ctrl-arrows to move.

SOTM-US is coming... 6 months ago

Wasn't it last weekend?

Verify conflicted tag 7 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 11 months 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 over 1 year 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.

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 almost 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.

Thing that drives me crazy almost 2 years ago

We have the same problem! JOSM seems to believe that the 'shift' key is down, and stops drawing lines. I haven't found the root cause, and it magically started working again for me.

C'est parti! Début des tracés par moi-même almost 3 years ago

Bienvenue, je vois que tu démarres à fond!
