Added homes in neighborhood

Posted by Ddoolittle86 on 18 January 2019 in English (English)

Today I added some homes that were in my neighborhood. There were nearly 100 area shapes not existent in my neighborhood alone. This got me thinking of how OSM could be used in the event of hurricanes, flooding, tornadoes, earthquakes, mudslides, and other natural disasters to have a basemap of where structures once stood. This would make it easier for search and rescue to plan out strategies for tackling the complex problem of finding people in areas that become unrecognizable after a natural disaster.

В Алма-Атах уже всех достали болашакеры , пытаясь жизнь эскимосов пропихать для Техасцев и мексиканцев с караколпаками. . = = = Многие думают что в Алма-Атах национализм , но приглядевшись видят что это название тройбализм , даже не землячество , и не по тейпам , а гораздо уже на уровне семьи ( не путать с мафией) . Притом эта семья боготворит запад и понты . В то время западные туристы в восторге от туризма в примитивизм ,и даже возомнят себя аки герои первобытного строя , аля Сундуков Витька. = = = Вот масквачи и брат с Севера выглядят в Алма-Атах как будто в Африку эскимос приехал и учит как Иглу ставить.

Tracing settlement features in Tongkil Island. I was also looking at several islands in the Andaman archipelago the other day. Lingering thought: what if they don’t want/need to be mapped?

Für wen und in welcher Situation genau wird Open Street Map nützlich?

Posted by larsmi on 16 January 2019 in German (Deutsch)

Ich habe in letzter Zeit viel über die Datenqualität bei Open Street Map gelesen. Es gibt sehr viele Möglichkeiten die Qualität aufgrund verschiedener Werte, Ziele, Erwartungen und Zusammenhänge zu messen, die wir als Benutzer haben, wenn wir mit Open Street Map arbeiten.

Mich beschäftigt vor allem die Frage, aus welchem Grund genau Open Street Map für wen und in welcher Situation nützlich wird. Könnt ihr mir das beantworten?

Tracing settlement features of Banguingui in southwestern Philippines. These houses are on stilts, so it would be interesting to use tags that denote that the area is both residential and above water. Also, I noticed that one could use the tag “bridge=boardwalk” for the main paths that connect the houses. Maybe, it’s possible to elevate such features in the hierarchy of thoroughfares in OSM?

Mapping Lesson - January 15, 2019

Posted by Kirigaya Kazuto on 15 January 2019 in English (English)

We learned today about how to know how many thing like this and that in this place using a website overpass turbo. Just for example of how many hospital are in this place and get to know of how many buildings that are levels are atleast 10. At first I think it was so easy but for a beginner its hard. I am an IT student but we havent encounter that part of code so it was a bit hard. Because of one of our classmates got some ideas it help us a lot. And then we try to learn it our own a little by little until we get to learn the point of our session lesson. And then we also try to learn about umap but because of a ip connection problem we didnt get a chance to learn it. So we just study the basic part of like the menu bar and the basic things on that. And thats our mapping session end because of our professor is needed somewhere else. That`s all THANK YOU! :D My Picture

I’ve been reading and writing about how research on data quality about OSM can be done. What I found so far is that there so many ways to measure data quality because of various goals, expectations, values, and contexts that we the users have when we interact with OSM tech.

Here’s my latest research question: at what point does OSM become useful, for whom, why, and under which conditions?

New bus loops for the University of British Columbia (UBC)

Posted by Jaller on 13 January 2019 in English (English)

East of Vancouver, BC is the University of British Columbia (UBC). The local transit agency TransLink serves UBC as part of the Metro Vancouver area and is expanding its bus routes.

Two fairly new bus loops can be found at UBC. The university currently has three bus loops. The bus loop in the north is the oldest, and two new ones have been built south of its location. Furthermore, a transit exchange is under construction. This new transit exchange will be located on ground level underneath student housing between the bus loops in the north and in the centre. The area has seen a lot of construction lately, with more buildings still being build.

To find the area, search for “UBC Aquatic Centre”. The aquatic centre is already finished and surrounded with construction sites.

As there are a lot of new buildings and infrastructure being build, OpenStreetMap should get updated to reflect the changes. At the beginning of 2019 I updated the positions and bus stop numbers (mapped using Key:ref) and bay numbers (mapped using Key:local_ref) of bus stops in the three bus loops. Improvements can be made to the bus routes which get mapped as relations. A bus route references and ordered list of stop positions and bus stops, followed by all streets the bus drives on. The mapping process is described in detail on the wiki page for public transport. At UBC these relations are outdated. The bus stops of most routes have been moved by TransLink as new streets became available.

Please consider updating those routes, if you are familiar with the buses. The wiki is a great place to learn about the correct mapping of route relations. If you want to help, but don’t feel comfortable editing the bus routes yet, consider updating buildings at UBC by adding names, addresses and public amenities. To learn about mapping bus stops and bus routes, send me a message or come to our monthly meetup in Burnaby.
