best day of mapping 13 days ago

Oh, would love to hear more - were you in the field with HOT team in Uganda? Don't see edits, so thinking that is what you're referring to; looking forward to more of the story and/or pictures.

Happy Mapping!

Hi Jeff,

That's great; not sure about that town specifically, but there's a great OSM community in Mexico. You should consider joining their mailing list: https://lists.openstreetmap.org/listinfo/talk-mx

Also noticed you haven't made any edits to OSM yet, so if you're looking for some guidance to get started, visit http://learnosm.org/

Happy Mapping!

Field map data entry - teaching beginners 5 months ago

Hi again Tom,

As related to my comment in your other post - would love to have your assistance maybe building a LearnOSM module for Field Papers and/or help thinking about TM developments to better facilitate Field Papers. Probably best to bring it up at the HOT Training and/or Tech working group meeting(s): http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Humanitarian_OSM_Team/Working_groups

Hello [OSM]world! 5 months ago

Hi Tom,

I hope you're already on the HOT mailing list. During the recent Activation Curriculum Workshops it was brought up to build some more connectivity with Field Papers and the Tasking Manager, let's chat about it sometime.

Hi lewis1286,

Have fun! But I also see someone deleted the point you entered, I hope maybe they contacted you directly to say why. I didn't dig too deep into what happened there, but from your changeset comment it seemed maybe you were trying to add a 'viewpoint'? These are usually designated things, not just any place with a good view. See http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:tourism%3Dviewpoint

I hope that helps, it looks like the area you put that point could use a lot more map data to represent the natural beauty, if you want to add that kind of data to the map, visit http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Natural

Happy Mapping,

Haha, why RSS feed of course http://www.openstreetmap.org/diary/rss - however, it doesn't make seeing the comments quick and easy :)

Hi ECITampa,

Not my area of expertise, but have you looked at this wiki-page?: http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:highway%3Dmilestone

Hope that helps - also the diary is less effective for asking questions than say the mailing lists or https://help.openstreetmap.org/

Happy Mapping!

Nepal efforts 9 months ago

And we appreciate the effort, I hope you were able to find one (or more), but each could potentially improve the response, perhaps save lives. If you are not sure your time was well spent, or for some help, please join the HOT mailing list: https://lists.openstreetmap.org/listinfo/hot

Thank you,
