30'000 different IP adresses per each day of the weekend [accessed] Overpass API

yep, that's in line with what I'm seeing in overpass turbo's recent access logs (see the chart below; the pre-event base level is around ~500 visits per day ^_^). The bulk of new users seems to come from the US, though.

@Jojo4u: You're free to do everything you want with the generated charts as long as you comply with ODbL's minimal requirement for produced works, i.e. citing OSM as the data source. A link back to this blog article and/or the website is very much appreciated, though. :)

Funny idea, that could indeed partially improve the issue with split ways. Still, a proper solution would have to track the actual length and/or area of the respective objects.

Oh, I wasn't aware of trolleway's implementation. Thanks for pointing it out!

Thanks for your good work! I'm really looking forward to having the lane editor in iD - it's going to be awesome B-)

Isn't this exactly the same diary entry as the one you posted already 4 days ago?

Creating interpolated GPX files for Mapillary 11 months ago

I suppose there are better ways to fetch a GPX file from a OSM way

You could also use overpass turbo ( to load the way and export it as GPX from there.

Top 25 cities in the world by the number of POI about 1 year ago

Ah, I see. The city-area definitions are really quite different:

Top 25 cities in the world by the number of POI about 1 year ago

How did you define the bbox of a city? Because using the Overpass API, I would get significantly smaller numbers of objects (e.g. 18k for Essen or 31k in Dortmund: The numbers are even smaller when using exact city limits (e.g. 12k for Dortmund: or 18k for Yokohama).

In the meantime, the PR has been merged already.

The Renaissance of the fixme-tag ... via Osmand and over 1 year ago

There appears to be a small typo in the MapCSS code above. To display the text for all features (not just nodes) there must be an additional comma between way and relation: {{style: node, way, relation { text: fixme } }} should do the trick.

OpenStreetMap Node Density Visualized over 2 years ago

max1e, sure, I'll send you a personal message!

OpenStreetMap Node Density Visualized over 2 years ago

max1e, yes, you should be able to install and run sed also on Windows (ask google). This visualization is done only for nodes because the raw data analysis was done (by Frederik Ramm, username: woodpeck) only for nodes. If you want also ways, you'd have to repeat the analysis step, which could be a quite extensive task, I suppose…

Über Imports over 2 years ago

Yes, but you can just pan a couple of hundred meters to the South (or in any other direction) and you have the same situation again: Dozens of version 1, imported buildings in low quality, version 1, imported landuse polygons. This is what I'm seeing basically anywhere else in rural France.

Ein Loblied auf FIXME over 2 years ago

Einen Nachteil haben die FIXMEs aber schon: Man kann darüber nicht diskutieren. Bei komplexeren Problemen ist das aber oft sehr nützlich.

@jotzt: no, I'm afraid, that's not yet implemented.
