Mapping private subdivision roads and other gated roads about 1 month ago

This is "mapping for the router".
Like people said before, the routing program should be able to deal with the private roads (and you should just not remove this info from them).

Re-tagging picnic sites with leisure=picnic_site and amenity=picnic_site to tourism=picnic_site about 2 months ago

"I'll be going to each of the picnic sites and look for re-tagging it." gives the impression that you will manually verify each one, while in https://github.com/mapbox/mapping/issues/147#issuecomment-166525158 we can see that "it will be a mechanized edit".

It's good to make it explicit that it will be an automatic process.
Also, whether possible, add mechanical=yes to the changeset.

source=Google in Brazil ☹ about 2 months ago

@mmd hummmmm.... because I didn't know that it was possible :-)
Really good to know. Thanks!

source=Google in Brazil ☹ about 2 months ago

Então, precisa verificar um por um.
Muito provavelmente precisa perguntar ao mapeador o que ele realmente utilizou.

Já vi gente que utilizou o Bing como imagem de fundo mas achava que aquilo era o Google, por exemplo.

Street names in Brazil are doomed 3 months ago

@Paul, I do.

@tomio mas no seu caso ou no exemplo do santamariense, eu tenho certeza que a pessoa coloca a fonte que utilizou ou, pelo menos, responde de onde está obtendo os dados. É bem diferente do que acontece na prática.
É muito raro alguém responder (e pior ainda entender que não pode copiar). Muitas vezes a pessoa simplesmente ignora quando se pergunta a origem dos dados.

Street names in Brazil are doomed 3 months ago

Por causa de um monte de vez que eu pego nome copiado, santamariense. Eu te mando por mensagem pra você dar uma olhada, pra não colocar nome de usuário aqui.

Street names in Brazil are doomed 3 months ago

And you have remembered me one point: this is the "easy" part (comparing the data and seeing identical names).
Now think of the user who is a little bit "smarter" and modifies the spelling (for example, expanding all the abbreviations).

Street names in Brazil are doomed 3 months ago

Some users (the minority) say that they have copied the data.
But most of the time the spelling is identical to (and only to) Google, for example, including the abbreviations.

New Telenav tool: Fix missing and wrong one-way streets 3 months ago

Suggestion: make it possible to mark invalid/false positives using the web interface. Idea: also use OSM's GPX tracks, if possible (in another layer, like suggest for the Missing Roads)

What Happen and Posted on OSM Diaries? 4 months ago

Some students here in Brazil are having some kind of geography class using OSM (like mapping their neighborhood).

How to find Missing Roads in OSM with GPS data 4 months ago

Can't you create one layer using GPs traces from OSM?

Problem with routing 5 months ago

Try other routers and see if they all fail with this route:

http://brouter.de/brouter-web/
http://map.project-osrm.org/
https://graphhopper.com/maps/

If you see the same issue, then probably it's something broken in OSM.

Mapeando com o osmtracker 5 months ago

Caso alguém tenha interesse (inclusive de criar o próprio layout personalizado), o que eu estou usando está em https://github.com/naoliv/layout-osmtracker

Mapeando com o osmtracker 5 months ago

Quando estou na estrada eu entendo que toda marcação minha é do lado direito. Se for trajeto que eu vou e volto eu nem olho para o outro lado (porque marco na volta).
Se preciso marcar algo do outro lado eu gravo com voz e digo que é do lado esquerdo.

Infelizmente é meio raro eu ser o passageiro e ter a oportunidade de gravar tudo o que eu gostaria.

Nos parques eu vou até o local para marcar (bebedouro, banco, etc), então também acabo não precisando definir o que é de um lado ou outro (já que não existe).

Grass&Green. Hurry up and participate to improve the data quality 5 months ago

Outdated text in Help?

"You could switch between Google and Bing satellite views, using the layer switcher on the top-right corner of the map"

And it would be nice if we could choose a specific country/area to use it.

New sat image and alignments 5 months ago

"Perhaps, anyone who discovers an area with new sat image should first align existing hiways/buildings."

No!
Sometimes the new imagery is slightly wrong. It's always necessary to use GPS tracks to verify (or align) the imagery.

From JOSM search & replace to processing Openstreetmap with your favorite text edition tools 6 months ago

I do something similar to https://josm.openstreetmap.de/ticket/8437#comment:3
But I would really like to have a better replace tool inside JOSM.
