Progress and stagnation in Great Britain road data

Posted by mannequinZOD on 20 June 2011 in English (English)

I have updated my statistics that I generate from the ITO world comparison with the OS Locator data set. If you look at the graphs we can see an impressive decrease of unmapped roads. Unsurprisingly, a lot of districts have reached completion - with over a quarter now at 95%!

However, the addition speed of unmapped roads has decreased over the recent months. So there is still 319 days left at current speed. So, keep mapping.

1 000 000 Relations in database - Yeah

Great Briain completely mapped in less than a year?

Posted by mannequinZOD on 6 April 2011 in English (English)

Recent ITO world data shows that the current mapping speed is 665 roads/day fixed or added. Assuming that the current mapping speed is kept up, this means the complete road network will be finished in 313 days. Less than a year to go.

(100% complete == all roads from the British government Ordnance Service are present and correctly named)

Milestone: 1 Billion Nodes in OSM

Someone has vandalized OSM

Posted by mannequinZOD on 10 February 2011 in English (English)

Can someone with more knowledge please check this out and block / revert it. I saw that the river bank was broken and tried to fix it, but it also looks like someone went wild on the roads.

POI in Germany / Europe

Posted by mannequinZOD on 9 February 2011 in English (English)

Hallo,

I have been monitoring POI development for Europe and Germany for fun. I use the POI exports provided by cloudmade and count some selected POI's and look at the development over time. Unfortunately, cloudmade does not provide any POI exports for Europe anymore, so new data only contains German POI development. Interestingly, there is a trend of fewer and fewer POI additions recently. It could be possible that the German community gets tired of mapping, but I don't think that this is the case. I hope my stats don't have errors, but is it possible that most POIs in well mapped areas have been mapped and we are seeing a saturation effect? This would be great news and indicates that OSM reaches a new level of maturity.

POI Statistic Updated (Germany + Europe)

Nokia vs Google

Posted by mannequinZOD on 21 January 2010 in English (English)

Nokia responded the googles free online GPS navigation in the US with free online/offline navigation in 180 countries

What will be the impact on OSM? Are people less inclined to use free OSM data with their navigation software?

Lates POI stats for Germany / Europe

POI statistics Germany & Europe

Posted by mannequinZOD on 14 December 2009 in English (English)

I have updated my POI statistics for Europe and Germany. Just follow the link or go to the OSM wiki stats page.

http://jef-hd-ma.freehostia.com/uploaded_files/POI_statistics_EU_D.html

The data comes from cloudmade's POI.gpx files and is extracted with a simple bash script. I am happy to pass it on in case someone is interested

Point of Interest Statistics POI

Posted by mannequinZOD on 7 December 2009 in English (English)

I have assembled some POI statistics for Europe and Germany. The idea is to track development over the next couple of weeks/months. Just follow the link or go to the OSM wiki stats page.

http://jef-hd-ma.freehostia.com/uploaded_files/POI_statistics_EU_D.html

The data comes from cloudmade's POI.gpx files and is extracted with a simple bash script. I am happy to pass it on in case someone is interested

UPDATE (7/12/09): There is an error in the calculations. It only counts POIs with names. I will update it tonight

Cleaning Up Errors, i.e. Almost junctions and missing junctions

Posted by mannequinZOD on 2 November 2009 in English (English)

Cleaned up more than a 100 mapping errors (only missing junction nodes) in the Cambridge, UK area, one of the 'better' mapped places. There are still plently left further outside the city.
Look at http://keepright.ipax.at/ and display all junction errors in your neighbourhoor. You will be surprised. The rendered map might look quite nice already, but it's ugly underneath

Data Consistency, Routing Capability

Posted by mannequinZOD on 28 October 2009 in English (English)

OSM lacks behind other map services with Routing capability, because a lot of nodes lack connections. Many users are not aware of these issues. Better advertisement of tools like http://keepright.ipax.at could significantly improve map quality. Maybe it should be one of the default map layers?

New GPS Point Milestone

Posted by mannequinZOD on 4 August 2009 in English (English)

More than 1 000 000 000 Gps data points and more than 400 000 000 nodes !!!
