Stadtteilgrenzen Gallus about 2 months ago

Für die Stadtteilgrenzen von FFM:

gehe zu ... Wizard ... dort eingeben:

admin_level=* in "frankfurt am main"

und abschicken.

Das Ergebnis kann man über "export" in vielfältiger Weise abspeichern.

PS: der boundary-Dienst von user Wambacher ist leider gearde nicht verfügbar ... sonst wäre der ganz gut dafür!

Hello, when I read this blog post, an OSM wiki page came into my mind immediately:

Did you use the listing on the bottom of that wiki page?

If not: any apps or web services missing in the OSM wiki, or in your above listing?

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

Welcome to OpenStreetMap Telangana! 9 months ago

Have a look at 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.


Nik4: mapnik → image 10 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:

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.

Very nice web app!!

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

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) about 1 year 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 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 about 1 year ago

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

So is it usable for OSM purposes?

OpenStreetBugs Phase out ... progress over 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?
