Maybe some of these nice user-friendly features should be mentioned in the OSM wiki at

Welcome to OpenStreetMap Telangana! about 1 year 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 over 1 year 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.

OsmHydrant over 1 year ago

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) over 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 over 1 year 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?

about Osmand, see,_only_some_of_them

OpenStreetBugs Phase out ... progress almost 2 years 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?

Skill Share: Map Photos Using OpenStreetMap and TileMill about 2 years 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.


  • go to 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.

Beta testing OSMiOS over 2 years ago

Hi Skippern,

as far as I have seen and searched, there is no entry about OSMiOS in the OSM wiki yet, or am I wrong?

Can you or the developer or someone else create an entry in the wiki, maybe even with using the template:software2 there?

Or is this to early?
