|Hello, OSM!||15 days ago||
Great work in Luisiana! :-)
|OSM mapping at regional or national scales: aiming at creating consolidated reference layers / La cartographie OSM à échelles régionales et nationales : l'objectif de créer des couches de référence consolidées||22 days ago||
Sounds like what I tried to do here: http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Philippines/Geodata_detail_levels
|My first OSM meeting||3 months ago||
Do you know about the talk-au mailing list? https://lists.openstreetmap.org/listinfo/talk-au
|Bagong Simula||7 months ago||
Kagaya ng Google Map Maker, mayroon ring talaang pang-email ang pamayanang OSM sa Pilipinas. Kung interesado ka, makilahok ka dito: http://lists.openstreetmap.org/listinfo/talk-ph
May mga ilang bagay lang akong inayos sa mga binago mo sa Biñan at Carmona. Kung may mga tanong ka, puwede kang magtanong sa akin sa pamamagitan ng pagdala ng mensahe sa aking pahina. :-)
|A new way of fast browsing of latest changes||10 months ago||
I think another vital tool is a way to easily analyze a single changeset. You should be able to see what objects were modified, created, and deleted. What the tags are on those objects and what modifications were done on those tags. How the shapes of objects changed. If ways were reversed, split, or joined.
The OSM History Viewer goes halfway there but I think it could be much much more.
|Advanced rendering of tags||12 months ago||
Regarding my comment about the "projection scaling bug", I confirmed that this is indeed a bug due to the mercator projection not having a uniform scale throughout the map. Despite that, the courts are rendered in a uniform scale per zoom level. The courts look great in France but would have the wrong size in other latitudes.
I'm guessing that these courts are rendered as if they were SVG icons, but rotated to match the general orientation of the pitches. If we really want scale-correct courts, I think that would require some complicated processing in the PostGIS DB. But as a proof-of-concept, this initial rendering of courts is actually great.
Note: I'm not complaining, just pointing out (probably already known) oddities.
As for the meaning of "leisure=pitch", I was actually hoping to spark a discussion. But maybe it's best discussed on the tagging@ mailing list. :-)

It seems there's a projection scaling bug for the tennis courts. Here's a tennis pitch area, but the tennis court image is too big! http://tile.openstreetmap.fr/?lon=120.92389&lat=14.46284&zoom=19&layers=B00000
The tennis pitch there actually contains 2 tennis courts. Do we need to split up the leisure=pitch polygon into 2? I don't think we should, since it's just 1 pitch area.

This is very useful! Thanks for creating this map. :-)
|Renaming the Ottawa River Parkway||about 1 year ago||
You should add the tag old_name=Ottawa River Parkway to store the previous name.
|Funeral Homes||over 1 year ago||
Well, a footway is not a highway but we have highway=footway.
I've learned that OSM life would be easier if we treat keys and values as just English-like words instead of actual English words. It would help prevent debate on whether something is supposed to be under "shop" or "amenity" or "leisure" or "tourism".

Heh. The person doing much of the criticizing on the wikipedia mailing list thread you linked to is the same guy who's criticizing OSMF and the license change.

|Why?||almost 2 years ago||
"I don't get anywhere close to the same level of satisfaction from making updates on google map maker."
|First post!||almost 2 years ago||
Good to hear that you got hooked on OSM. Happy Mapping! :)
|First Post :-)||almost 2 years ago||
Yay! I never would've thought that my suggestion of "Ramoth" as a dragon's name would be picked up quite quickly. :)
|Node density in the Philippines||about 2 years ago||
marscot, thanks! :)
|Imagery coverage map for OSM Philippines||about 2 years ago||
These outlines were all compiled manually: basically by tracing the outlines in JOSM then saving the OSM file which is then converted to JSON (data.js).
The dates that you see in the layer control are the dates when the corresponding imagery were discovered by the local community.
I hope Bing would release an update history similar to what Google is doing for Google Earth. But until that happens, we just stumble onto new imagery every now and then.

Hi Gladys! So you got bitten by the OSM bug? Hehe.
If you're interested, why not join the OSM-PH mailing list: http://lists.openstreetmap.org/pipermail/talk-ph/
We discuss there a lot of geeky map topics. :)
|OSM Potlatch2 bug or Chrome?||over 2 years ago||
Try clearing your browser cache. There were some stuff that were updated (like a new version of Potlatch 2 as you may have noticed). :)
|A village full of buildings||over 2 years ago||
You think buildings in your village make the map look cluttered? Try a densely-populated city in a Third-World country like the Philippines. Here are the buildings traced in the city of Marikina: http://osm.org/go/4zhZBhXXl-
Anyway, to echo what Richard says, the beauty of OpenStreetMap is that you can take the raw data and render a map with the right amount of detail that you prefer. If you want a clean and spartan map, you can do so. If you are the type who loves architecture, then a map showing buildings is also possible, thanks to your effort to add the building outlines. :)
