Vore trevligt om FTV Råå kunde få ordning på sin teknik. Behöver ni en tekniker?

Posted by swelogictheorist on 12 June 2013 in Swedish (Svenska)

Jag skulle ju resa till Stockholm sa jag ju, och min tandläkare i Råå skrev ett särskilt brev som jag ska ge till tandläkarna i Stockholm så varför krånglar deras system och SMS:ar att jag ska till Råå imorgon?

Synd att jag inte har någon information att lägga till på OSM, när det gäller information om FTV Råå http://www.openstreetmap.org/browse/way/200170342

Fast jag har ju också en massa geoinfo som bara ligger och väntar på att matas in i OSM. :) Jobbigt, fick en liten burnout på sistone :)

Åkte en cykeltur igår i Valdemarsvik

Posted by swelogictheorist on 8 August 2012 in Swedish (Svenska)

Alla vägar jag tog hade asfalt, så när asfalten tog slut och grusvägen började(eller andra underlag) så vände jag tillbaka och fortsatte att utforska :)

Waiting for the license change. Good its finally over...soon.

Posted by swelogictheorist on 8 April 2012 in English (English)

The latest in on what's going on. Is the cc-by-sa 2.0 being removed finally, or are there delays? http://blog.osmfoundation.org/2012/04/05/license-change-update-getting-it-right/

I'm letting you find out. There's some software here that is going to take care of removing cc-by-sa 2.0 and preserving only odbl licensed data: https://github.com/zerebubuth/openstreetmap-license-change

Today I just noticed a street whose name was made by an editor who hasn't contributed for 3 years and who is "undecided".

Its things like these I may have spotted during the years and discouraged me. BUT the wait is beginning to be finally over.(uncorrect English but wth)

Εκεί είναι η αρχή(βασικά το τέλος μιας οδού) από ένα σημείο που άρχησα την χαρτογράφηση σήμερα

Posted by swelogictheorist on 18 November 2011 in Greek (Ελληνικά)

Εκεί ξεκίνησα την χαρτογράφηση. Ξεκίνησα από την οδό Μακεδονομάχων να δω μέχρι που φτάνει(σιγουρεύτικα για το που αρχίζει. Διασταυρώθηκε με την Οδό Αρχαιοτήτων και μια άλλη που λεγόταν κάτι σε στυλ τριών "ταδε"). Μετά δοκίμασα την Οδό Αρχαιοτήτων που σταματάει και που τελειώνει (έγραφε Οδός Καυκάσου).

Μια πολύ μικρή οδός(Οδός Δεξαμενής) δίπλα στο Αντλιοστάσιο ΕΥΑΘ Καλλιθέας, που εκτός ότι διασταυρώνεται με την οδό Αρχαιοτήτων ή άλλη μόνο οδός με την οποία διασταυρώνεται είναι η Οδό Θερισσού.

Με βάση το Bing και survey(την φυσική παρουσία μου εκεί) κατάλαβα που ήταν η κάθε οδός.

Mapping streets as areas example by Roy

Tagging gps traces with comma delimited - Finally!

Posted by swelogictheorist on 13 September 2009 in English (English)

Finally we can use spaces instead of having to use the not_very_user_friendly_under_score when we tag our gps tracees :) .

So instead of typing Prefecture_of_Thessaloniki which isn't very nice looking and practical to type, simply Prefecture of Thessaloniki.

Examples on how it was done in the past: Thessaloniki Nomos_Dramas Prefecture_of_Drama Greece Nomos_Thessalonikis Prefecture_of_Thessaloniki

Examples on how it is done now: Thessaloniki, Nomos Dramas, Prefecture of Drama etc. etc.

Good work people(community)!

Trying to map bus route 26

Posted by swelogictheorist on 11 May 2009 in English (English)

I've reached until bus stop Mavros Gatos, and from there I noted down the bus stops that come next:
Σκαλάκια, Ρήγα Φερραίου 1, Γέφυρα, (turning in the direction of the Προκοπίου street), Ικονίου Προκοπίου(Ikoniou Prokopiou bus stop), Υδραγωγείο, Παλιά Λαχαναγορά, Παπαζόλη, Αντιγονιδών(though it says on the bus stop shelter "Κολόμβου"), Ίωνος Δραγούμη, Τ.Σ. (Τερματικός Σταθμός) Βενιζέλου, Βενιζέλου, Αντιγονιδών, Κολόμβου, Πλατεία Δημοκρατίας, and at this time I stepped out of the bus to take bus number 56.

Now looking on London bus routes, so I can learn to map them in my city.

Today I'm interested in marking a hospital and lots of it's related buildings (Tag:amenity=hospital)

Posted by swelogictheorist on 5 May 2009 in English (English)

Tag:amenity=hospital wiki page:
So it's missing an image. Why don't I add one when I've come back from dinner?

I added an image of mapnik showing one hospital icon. There is room for improvement I think but it will do for now: http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:amenity%3Dhospital

Observation: Wow! I'm impressed, mapnik has already updated the buildings and the hospital I added a few hours (or many minutes) ago!

2nd Observation: I did too many things at once, and an edit made to the interpolation way, caused JOSM to refuse to upload my new additions of the addresses. I'll take a rest(my primary way of solving problems ;) , and then return here to try to solve this mess. (Even by getting the new version, merging it with the layer I'm working with , is not working).

I'm afraid I'll lose data this way.

Keep right, automatic detection of possible errors

Posted by swelogictheorist on 29 March 2009 in English (English)

So I started to fix some things in my neighborhood, using this site: http://keepright.ipax.at/report_map.php?zoom=18&lat=40.64467&lon=22.94928&layers=B0T

I learnt in this way that I needed to close the way for a parking lot, and it also made me curious about some other possible errors, regarding pedestrian road crossings.

Interpolation and another bus stop

Posted by swelogictheorist on 22 March 2009 in English (English)

I did some interpolation, which I learnt from watching how it's done in a Swedish city called Linkoping. Now I'm not sure I did it exactly as they've done it, but at least I'm not adding the street name to each node of the interpolation way.

I also added the bus stop Navarinou beside the road.

Openstreetbugs + Not much today, I'm interested in the green (nature)

Posted by swelogictheorist on 14 March 2009 in English (English)

So I add some trees. In the city trees are sparse and very few. Now I remember the Aristotelous square, and a few bits of detail.

Also recently I've discovered openstreetbugs. It's kinda "wikimapia style" sort of additions and it's like for: requests, comments and errors. Quite interesting. Will probably be of use.

Making a few places ready for the street numbering project part 1

Posted by swelogictheorist on 6 October 2008 in English (English)

I've already began, mostly in my own area: http://www.openstreetmap.org/?lat=40.64623&lon=22.9485&zoom=17&layers=B000FTF

but now I'm doing a bit in the center of the city: http://www.openstreetmap.org/?lat=40.634116&lon=22.94144&zoom=18&layers=B000FTF . I'm mostly interested in mapping buildings for the moment.

Road in Greece->Thessaloniki marked as highway

Posted by swelogictheorist on 31 July 2008 in English (English)

It's called odysseus road, but it's marked as a highway belonging to a lot of segments. I don't have anything against an extra layer showing how to get to the highway, but I also don't know how to do it in josm to make an extra layer yet, and to unite it with the next segment close by.
