Cleaning up admins about 1 month ago

Hello rorym,

please be aware that administartive boundary relations are under a permanent review process by some OSM experts.

See for example http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/User:Wambacher (scroll down there)

and try his tool https://osm.wno-edv-service.de/boundaries/

If you have issues with some borders, why not starting a thread at the OSM forum?

Keeping OSM up to date with OSMfocus about 2 months ago

Not bad ... will try it later when enough time.

This app needs an own article in the OSM wiki!

Many users will benefit from creating a new page there for your app.

How about Video-Mapping? 3 months ago

There is already a third-party service: http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Mapillary

You can contribute to that project on your own.

and we are allowed to use all information for OSM purposes.

See https://help.openstreetmap.org/questions/34431/maps-changes-not-correctly-displayed-on-rendered-map-version

some zoom levels need longer than others.

Also try to refresh your browser's cach by pressing F5 or similar.

Hallo Shmias,

kennst du schon die verschiedenen Werkzeuge zur Qualitätskontrolle in OSM?

http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Qualit%C3%A4tssicherung

Beispielsweise zeigt der OSM-Inspector von geofabrik.de im Address-Layer etliche Punkte zum Verbessern, oder http://keepright.at hat auch einige Treffer. Probiere auch http://qa.poole.ch ... um nur einige zu nennen.

Bei Fragen -> deutschsprachiges Unterforum bei http://forum.openstreetmap.org

Making a map of the mappers contributing to mapping parties 5 months ago

Maybe it is possible to do that query directly via http://overpass-turbo.eu ?

Because there you cab export any result as JOSM-ready OSM data with meta data, or directly as geojson, if I am not wrong.

overpass turbo updates 5 months ago

Really nice new features!!! Thanks a lot!

Maybe some of these nice user-friendly features should be mentioned in the OSM wiki at http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Overpass_turbo

Welcome to OpenStreetMap Telangana! 6 months ago

Have a look at http://osm.wno-edv-service.de:8080/boundaries/ where you can select all kinds of OSM boundary relations for almost all countries in the world, including boundaries with higher admin_levels.

Try to select the boundaries in the hierarchical tree structure og the two mentioned areas. That can be a basis for "picture of the week" or similar.

Success?

Nik4: mapnik → image 6 months ago

Hello Zverik, have not tried your new tool yet, but I am really curious!

I also created a stub article in the OSM wiki: http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Nik4

Feel free to fill it with better styled information for OSM users.

Now there are also wiki links to Nik4 article from "OSM on Paper" article and Mapnik article in our wiki there.

OsmHydrant 7 months ago

Very nice web app!!

And even in the OSM wiki we have a page about it:

http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/OsmHydrant

But it is still a stub page ... maybe we can insert some links and hints to other webservices that deal with fire related topics like openfiremap or similar.

Boundary relations, place/label nodes, and addressing (How to get Nominatim to link things) 10 months ago

Hello revent,

please be aware that the boundary display style from itoworld ist just missing the feature to display boundary relations themselves!

This feature was asked for at the OSM-Wiki page about ito years ago ... no enhancement yet.

Instead, please try the service at http://openmapsurfer.uni-hd.de with grayscale base tiles and boundary overlay at the layer chooser in top right screen corner.

So please don't tag boundary lines only to get a better display in feature-lacking itoworld display.

New administrative boundaries Thailand, Uruguay, Nepal 10 months ago

I am not aware whether you gave information on other datasets from there before, but:

What licence is used to publish that data?

So is it usable for OSM purposes?

OpenStreetBugs Phase out ... progress about 1 year ago

It seems that the new Bugs are created by an instance of Osmand.

But I am quite sure that there has been an change in Osmand's features that in recent Osmand versions, newly created bugs are sent to OSM notes.

So I assume that someone is using an old version of Osmand to create old-school OSM-Bugs ???

What about disabling the OpenStreetBugs API about the creation feature?

PushPin als App für alle about 1 year ago

Es gibt sogar noch mehr Projekte mit OSM-Bezug, die online übersetzbar sind,

Dann wär doch auch ein Eintrag dieser neuen Streckenführung im OSM-Wiki unter http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/New_and_Changed_Ways schick.

Skill Share: Map Photos Using OpenStreetMap and TileMill over 1 year ago

Hey Mikel, nice tutorial!!

Will try it if enough time :-)

But one issue:

  • When quering OSM objects from the main database via OverpassTurbo, your query ONLY asks for nodes.

Better:

  • go to http://taginfo.openstreetmap.org and enter any wanted key name in its search box, like "picture" in this case.
  • If necessary, choose the right key if taginfo offers more than one.
  • Then you get an overview how often that key is in the OSM database.
  • Have a look at the upper right corner of that screen, there is a symbol like a steering wheel. By following it, you get to overpass-turbo with a query asking for ALL elements with key "picture", and you can display them on the current map view.
