Sammenhold adresse-positioner fra OSM med AWS

Posted by findvej on 15 February 2010 in Danish (Dansk)

Så fik jeg leget lidt mere med at sammenholde OSM- og AWS-data:
http://osm.ter.dk/address.php

Jeg har lavet en simpel test-applikation, der med udgangspunkt i et
OSM-node-id henter adressen ind, tjekker adressen i AWS og så
præsenterer adresserne op imod hinanden, fx:
http://osm.ter.dk/address.php?node=340692618
http://osm.ter.dk/address.php?node=340802482
http://osm.ter.dk/address.php?node=341714133

Tanken er, at applikationen blandt andet kan gøre oprydning af store klumper som
dem her let:

Danish addresses from 2003

Posted by findvej on 3 February 2009 in English (English)

I'm about to plan to bulk add public data from the Danish National Survey and Cadastre with addr:* information.

Is there a map feature/tag to annotate that the data is from 2003 (and therefore might contain outdated information)?

Even more translations

Posted by findvej on 7 January 2009 in English (English)

Danish translation is almost 75% done.

I downloaded josm-latest.jar and looked at the interface in Danish. It's always nice to see the work in actual use.

Some of the translations needed minor tweaks as I was able to see them in the right context. Furthermore it was more clear which eminent menu strings would need to be translated.

I'm looking forward to the next update.

More JOSM translation

Danish JOSM translation is now about 60% done. Yawn :)

Search and error QA tests for Denmark

Posted by findvej on 30 November 2008 in English (English)

(This is mainly of interest for Danes. English translation in bottom)

Jeg har lagt alle danske veje ind i en tabel (ud fra denmark.osm) og lavet et hurtigt søgbart interface. Formålet er at finde typisk fejl i de eksisterende navne.

Man kan frit søge på:
http://osm.ter.dk/

Der er også to specialopslag:
- navne med semikolon i (typisk efter sammenlægninger af to vejstykker med forskelligt navn)
- navne med specialtegn (ud over hvad der normalt optræder i danske veje - herunder også dobbelt-utf8'ede data).

Der arbejdes ud fra et statisk dump, så nogle af fejlene har jeg allerede rettet. Men planen er at lave et dagligt import (og evt. opdatere via OSM-API'et)

Senere regner jeg med at sammenligne vejnavne op imod AWS (den danske adresse-webservice) for at sikre, at de officielle vejnavne bliver brugt.

Kommentarer er velkomne. Jeg er ny ud i OSM-verdenen, så jeg ved ikke om der i forvejen findes tilsvarende værktøj

=== IN ENGLISH ===

I have inserted all Danish ways (based on denmark.osm) in a local table and created a quick interface for searching. The purpose is to locate trivial errors in the names.

The search page:
http://osm.ter.dk/

There are furthermore two special pages:
- list of names containing semicolon (as a result of two merged ways)
- list of names with uncommon characters in Danish street names (including double utf8 encoded names)

The page is based on a static dump. Some of the errors in the data have already been fixed. The plan is to perform a daily import (and perhaps updates utilizing the OSM API)

A planned task is to compare the street names to the ones from AWS (Danish public Address Web Services) to make sure the official street names are used.

Comments are appreciated. I'm new on the OSM scene and unaware if there are existing tools with the same features.

Fløng and Marbjerg, Denmark

Posted by findvej on 21 November 2008 in English (English)

My first real additions

Added a bunch of bicycle road at Fløng and connected them to roads
Named some roads at Fløng
Added bicycle path from Marbjerg to Fløng
Added some tags (noexit, roundabout, level at a bicycle tunnel)
Added Wiemosen in Roskilde
Rename/split of Naboløs

I have already seen some changes at Osmarender layer. I'm really impressed by the distributed layer service!
