After seeing an article on The Verge - this one - about the launch of giveit100.com I wondered if there was something to do involving OSM. The mission of the social network is to try to make a resolution and stick to it for at least 100 days, filming a short 10 seconds video segment.
Well, I chose to make a small contribution in a different country each day, and today I did a changeset in Jamaica as my sixth country. Long way to go, but I'll try (to make viewable the video I make circa 6 minutes of editing, so between 50 and 150 edits usually). Here's how I work to do this:
the global map is a shapefile from Natural Earth rendered with qgis (3 pictures each lasting 15-16 frames)
I use recordmydesktop to do the recording (resulting in a ogv file)
ffmpeg to convert from ogv to avi
kdenlive to mix them up, the video is accelerated to fit 205 frames
Here's my project link (which was also selected as featured) https://giveit100.com/@sabas/ro277m
I was mapping something in North Korea when...
I wonder if they understand they have to put map labels only on the map, not directly on the ground.
BTW some who understand Korean can translate? I'm going to put this on the map, there's another one near the dam on the right.
Today I finally ended checking the whole coastlines of Sardinia, except the Medio Campidano and Carbonia - Igliesias provinces. I started a year ago while editing my first area in West Sardinia and today I can say I've touched all the remaining parts where there was PGS or there was a bad definition.
Next I'd like to import the new borders for remaining provinces of Sassari and Olbia-Tempio.
