Processing GPS traces from a Garmin GLO. about 2 months ago

beware - if you do full run on a roundabout or plot a parking lot, gpsbabel will drop more data than needed with the distance option... you can see some discussion here : http://comments.gmane.org/gmane.comp.hardware.gps.gpsbabel.general/6395

as you can guess, such traces are not that good for osm.

https://lists.openstreetmap.org/pipermail/talk-lv/2011-July/003040.html suggests a simple fix - in that version of gpsbabel, adding

else { break; }

after line 121

COFFEEDEX & the single-tag revolution 9 months ago

hopefully this is an attempt at specialised editors and starting a discussion, not a serious intent :)

otherwise i'd like to map beer prices. and bread prices in supermarkets. and availability or alcoholic drinks. and room prices in hotels. oh, and their availability, too...

"For Google's (not) a Jolly Good Fellow!" over 2 years ago

just to clarify... everybody appreciates contributions, but we are very cautious about copyright. google does not play friendly with us - well, too bad, we have to do without them.

Experience about 4 years ago

wanted to comment on "they did search at my flat as well" part - don't these things require a court order anymore ?

and it would be nice to try to bring this to some larger media outlet - bbc did run some stories on osm - maybe Maggie Shiels wants to pick this up (http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/8305924.stm) or whoever was involved with http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/8517057.stm (phrase it like "help haiti earthquake relief, get arrested in england" or something ;) ) - surely writing this experience in a nice way might attract other media as well.

btw, using first wms url in josm, imagery seems to be ~ 50m off to the south for the region i'm interested in. would anybody be interested in a report about that ?
