Data that I capture with my phone

Posted by naoliv on 27 June 2014 in English (English)

Unfortunately it's not possible to drive the car and at the same time take notes about streets and places, for example, but it's possible to capture data that can be useful in several projects.

What I am recently using is:

Dados que eu capturo com o celular

Posted by naoliv on 27 June 2014 in Portuguese (Português)

Infelizmente não dá para dirigir o carro e ao mesmo tempo anotar informações de ruas e locais, por exemplo, mas dá para capturar dados que podem ser úteis para vários projetos.

O que ultimanente ando utilizando é:

1000 edições

Posted by naoliv on 2 June 2014 in Portuguese (Português)

Milésima edição no OSM.
Se bem que hoje em dia isso não vale mais nada (porque quem usa o iD acaba tendo 3000 changesets em alguns meses).
Mas de qualquer forma, foram quase 3 anos para completar mil changesets (não de iD).

Ideas for a "suspect changesets classifier"

Posted by naoliv on 17 May 2014 in English (English)

Sometimes we find here in Brazil some imported data from +4 months ago, that nobody saw until now. Usually, these imports are followed by some other changesets deleting the old data + changesets modifying/adjusting the imported data.

We also see some changesets where people purposely/unconsciously delete a lot of data.

Could a Bayesian filter, SVM or something else be used to classify a suspect changeset? Could we use something smart for this task?

New users shouldn't be allowed to delete a lot of data

Really. It's tiring to keep fixing deleted administrative boundaries, for example.
Or revert changesets where people play SimCity on the map (and also delete a lot of things).

Wishlist: GPX tracks analyzer

Posted by naoliv on 7 February 2014 in English (English)

I would like to have a service that would analyze all the GPX tracks that we have + the OSM data and nicely display something saying: this area is probably missing some highways (if there are GPX tracks and no data in OSM, then probably we are missing something)

Low quality traces

I always keep wondering why people do things like this:
