|OpenStreetBugs Phase out ... progress||about 1 month ago||
Realizing a little time ago that I'm the single biggest map notes contributor I 'd like to share a thought regarding essentially map notes but possibly related to the continued creation of OSM bugs.
I love both systems. Seriously, they are fantastic. I collected so much data that I have never (=yet) uploaded - - before I started using OSM bugs (thanks to OsmAnd making it easy to use OSM bugs and then map notes) - - that it still bugs me... The process /work flow with osmb and map notes is just that critical bit easier.
Now. Having covered areas in Haiti and Nicaragua with osmb and map note pins / dots a couple of times (until later cleaning the areas up) I've come to think that it would be great if we had better ways to filter map notes (e.g hide notes from certain account or show only anonymous, etc). Also, showing only contributions from certain users would be great - or filtering by text string.
Now, this might have to do with some mappers continuing to use osb through the thought that maybe they don't want to "spam" the map for all? .. Or then they simply haven't updated their OsmAnd (.. Perhaps more likely?)..
Anyways, just my quick thoughts. And big thanks to all who have participated in creating these wonderful tools!

Great work! The roads coverage really is now better than in Google Maps (as seen in this comparison in BBBike.org : http://j.mp/mapcompare-sdw ). Good base for others to continue with!

Great work Rene! I'm so happy to see your (and also others') new activity in the area -- makes me feel that the push I + friends here on the Western end of the island did before the license change (redaction) bot ran over last summer was well worth it. Happy mapping from PaP! -Jaakko Ps. Have you been adding also the short name to calles (and possibly other road types) when you've been mapping? .. That would make it pretty easy to create an extract/conversion for Garmin and other purposes with only the "short names".

This is _absolutely_ brilliant! I've lived in Haiti for bit over half a year and have had endless headaches in tagging the local highway features "properly". ... This helped me realize that there is no universal properly as local conditions always apply. Thanks!!! -jaakkoh
