|Leytonstone looking slicker||6 months ago||
Looks good. Thanks for doing the W14, that's a useful bus for me!
(Just having a look at it now in the "transport map" layer.)
Also thanks for this blog of the process needed for the full public transport mapping. Kinda complex - I haven't attempted it before, though I have added a handful of route relations.
|More on Land Use Tags||6 months ago||
I think building=public is common for civic/govt buildings.
Also I agree with Andy about village_green - I'd suggest just landuse=grass instead (and if you want to indicate that public access is ok, access=yes or access=permissive). http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:landuse=grass
|Two accounts||7 months ago||
When you say "it takes me to the second URL"... that doesn't mean that you're logged in as that user. It probably just means that was the page you were looking at before you clicked to log in.
This diary entry was written by "bdiscoe" so you must be logged in as that one... I presume!
|Where does this user get his data from?||7 months ago||
Curious. I wonder if it's possible to spot any tell-tale "deliberate errors" that chdr might be importing from known sources.
|First Thoughts||8 months ago||
Hi John. I'm a casual-to-medium OSM mapper and my advice is, as chillly said, "be bold". There's always the possibility to revert any changes if they're problematic.
|waze + google = good news for OSM||9 months ago||
Your optimism is nice. But you're considering the effects of the takeover in terms of competitors and user-bases, whereas I'd suggest that Google's reasons for acquiring Waze are not about "denying a competitor" but probably more centred on: (a) buying their expertise (their developers, geo-hackers and geo-crowdsourcing experience); (b) buying their data and their data workflows (e.g. getting people's travel-times etc) to enrich their geodata. It suggests to me that they're keen on spending money to beef up their maps offering even more, and in ways that specifically overlap with osm.
|History tab: current vs new - local survey edits comparison||about 1 year ago||
Oh thank GOODNESS you're doing this :) the history tab is so unhelpful because filled with worldwide edits that usually don't even have any content in the current bounding box. Looking forward to this.
|1,074,201 things to do for OpenStreetMap, literally.||over 1 year ago||
Dennis, this visualisation is SUPER-helpful! It led me to fix many wonky things: streets mis-labeled as footways, oneways going the wrong way, etc.
(Some things are unfixable, such as one-way roads leading into carpark buildings. It might be good to ignore sources/sinks that terminate it building entrances etc?)
I guess the computation is heavy, but are you planning to have the data refreshed? I have been hacking away at various patches, and it will be hard to remember what has been fixed and what hasn't.
|Looking for participants to play OSM-based audio maps game||over 3 years ago||
Interesting game! I liked the audio.
