A Mapper in the Spotlight: Dave Swarthout (USA/Thailand) 10 days ago

With thailand's (or pretty much anywhere else in SEA) traffic, you are really pushing your luck surveying on a bike like that. Stay safe!

Great interview.

Not this again... about 2 months ago

There exist the same situation in Klang valley, especially on MRR2. Last I remembered, the exit junctions don't have any names on it, and the situation is the same for many other expressways that crisscross the valley. Yet, we have notes all over. My best guess is that somebody is importing data from other navigation system, MFM would be the prime candidate.

You don't mind extending your spring cleaning all the way down here do you? ;)

New sat image and alignments 3 months ago

perhaps a little clarification to my post.

I am just proposing possible approaches to aligning existing trace to new sat images. I even mentioned, at the end of the process, the need to offset everything accurately, be it averaged gps traces or geodetic survey data.

If there are no gps traces available (quite common around here), then, i dont think it mattered much since nobody knew for sure which sat imagery is more accurate..I'll just make the map pretty.

Akuanaktimur, this is never intended against you. You are one of the best mapper ive met in osm malaysia.

thanks for the input guys/gals!

Wishing you the best with your journeys.

New Telenav Mapping Project: Dual Carriageways 10 months ago

maybe that single line is tagged with the new 'obfuscate me' tagging: lanes= divided, divider yes, median yes, grass yes, forward 2 lanes, reverse 2 lanes. Lordy, how i hate trying to decipher all those tags..

And also, please try to refrain changing hiway classification to trunk. Currently, we are trying to get an agreement of some sorts on what constitutes a trunk highway in Malaysia. See forum for discussions.

maka aku dengan kelaseran aku, pun menghantar email kat dia. Tak tahu le dia balas ke idak. Tapi laser power sekadar torchlight je, sekadar tegur friendly.. ngehhh

Yang bab kes had laju tu, aku cadangkan hang delay last minit sebelum taruk node. Bila confirm, baru taruk node, split n masuk data. Kalau idak, standard le node kosong tu terdelete kalau terkena JOSM simplify way. Aku punya workflow camtu, lepas trace berbagai, aku simplify way (high accuracy) untuk kurangkan redundant node. Kalau tidak, jadi macam separuh2 tempat, selekoh kat bucu rumah pun bantai lukis sampai guna 10 node.

Sabar bang sabar... adat memeta osm gitu le. Mujur le tak ramai lagi yang nak mencuba align map..

Now Live: Notes Posted By Scout Users 12 months ago

Sounds great. At least a little thinking is done before implementing that feature, unlike that other app that spew out OSM spam notes.... ;)

hmm, pakcik ni memang keje dia delete terus highway yang lama - lama punya.

adoi la.. loklak toi..

When will somebody remove this spam account?

Re: highway track 4x4

I believe a tag 4wd_only=yes exists in osm wiki, which helps in differentiating tracks that are passable by cars or 4x4.

Probably a 4wd only track rendering should be implemented. I had that unlucky experience of getting into an unmarked 4wd road in a remote US national forest ( road exists on topo map, but not classified as 4x4 only) in a Toyota Tercel. That was an unforgettable experience, but luckily I got through to the main roads again. Phew!

GPS track "eye" effect in trees about 1 year ago

You mean it might have a track "prediction" algorithm?

Can anyone explain this? about 1 year ago

Their newest colonization plan maybe? (or settlement if you prefer that term.)

what are these oddly shaped circular features? about 1 year ago

my guess would be a cemetery. (really, not a spin on the ebola thing)

No Waiting about 1 year ago

I'll consider that. Somehow trying to fix anonymous note like these might just mean doing it manually. Those notes seems to be an automatic import from some gps nav software by some well meaning soul. (that's the bad part- quite a few mappers here are trying to quickly populate the map without regard of legality of where those information come from)

GORDON'S ALIVE about 1 year ago

Good to hear Potlatch is still alive. No better editor at aligning long stretch of highway than this.

Can we have iD like zoom interpolation? Wishful thinking, I know..
