Creating a National Highway Wall Map for Turkmenistan

Posted by apm-wa on 19 December 2018 in English (English)

The data volume for all of Turkmenistan is too large for Mapillary to handle, so I have contacted Igor Brejc, Mapillary's creator, and he has produced, charging only his standard fee, a wall map-sized SVG image of Turkmenistan and its trunk, primary, secondary, and tertiary highways plus cities and towns. I am presently editing it with Inkscape to produce a wall map of Turkmenistan's highways at the request of the American Embassy Ashgabat motor pool. First, a big thanks to Igor (https://scalablemaps.com/), and second, to the OSM community that has encouraged and tutored me along the way, as well as contributed a lot of data to the Turkmenistan map. This map, when ready, will be the most up-to-date wall map of Turkmenstan's highway network.

I have also started work on a new wall map of Ashgabat, and so have updated the Maperitive mrules file for it, which you are welcome to peruse via the OSM wiki at https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/OSM_on_Paper/Printing_via_Maperitive,_Easy_Poster_Printer_and_Microsoft_ICE/Ashgabat_city_Maperitive_style_file It is not yet a finished product. I still want it to render the airport terminals as white, and my efforts so far in that regard have led to naught. They remain brown, like other buildings.

My best wishes for the holiday season to one and all!

Montrouge à 360° avec Mapillary

Posted by François2 on 18 December 2018 in French (Français)

Depuis quelques mois nous sommes un petit groupe (@Phyks, @overflorian, @François2, @Yxoc) à cartographier Montrouge. Pendant une partie du mois de Novembre, nous avons pu disposer d'une caméra 360. Le projet de capturer Montrouge en photo sur Mapillary a pu commencer. En 3 semaines nous avons couvert 50% de la ville.

Le matériel

Pour prendre les photos, nous disposions

  • d'une caméra LG 360 (un des modèles les plus abordables, 200€ neuf)
  • Une perche à selfie (un mètre minimum)
  • Un smartphone avec l'application LG et un enregistreur de traces (OsmAnd~ avec un point toutes les deux secondes) pour une meilleure corrélation ensuite

Les résultats

  • 3 personnes (Phyks, overflorian et François2)
  • 7h heures de prises de vue (Phyks : 3h, François : 4h)
  • 4200 photos (François: 2.9K, Phyks : 1,3K)
  • 8 heures de retraitement (Phyks : 3h, François : 5h)
  • 20.2 kilomètres couverts (environ la moitié de la ville) (François: 14.6km, Phyks : 6.6km)

Quelques conseils

Pendant la prise de vue

Nous avons pris les photos en tenant la perche à selfie verticalement, à hauteur d'épaule. La caméra se trouvait donc à environ un mètre au-dessus de notre tête, ce qui permet d'avoir assez de dégagement et de ne pas occuper trop d'espace avec la tête sur la prise de vue.

Quelques astuces pour faciliter le positionnement des images après coup :

  • Il faut toujours orienter la caméra dans le même sens, afin de faciliter le réglage de l'orientation après coup dans Mapillary. D'autre part, la caméra a une face "avant" et une face "arrière" qu'il vaut mieux respecter. Il est possible de corriger l'orientation a posteriori, avant envoi à Mapillary, mais cette opération est très longue et fastidieuse.
  • Il vaut mieux faire les rues par tronçons (entre deux croisements) complets, autant que possible, pour pouvoir positionner finement les images plus simplement.
  • Éviter de traverser une rue en cours de route, essayer d'être le plus rectiligne possible
  • Marcher toujours à la même vitesse

Les endroits

Il est plutôt sympa d'essayer de tout prendre en photo. Ce qui comprend les impasses, les parties piétonnes et les parcs ! Ces lieux sont rarement pris en photos par les autres services de photographie de rues et sont donc d'autant plus utiles !

Le positionnement des photos

La partie la plus chronophage, surtout au début, et le repositionnement des photos à leur emplacement exact. En effet, en ville la trace enregistrée n'est pas très précise. Pour que les photos soient facilement utilisables, la correction de leur positionnement est nécessaire.

Nous avons utilisé JOSM avec les plugins suivants :

  • photoadjust
  • photo_geotagging

Pour un premier positionnement des photos dans JOSM :

  1. Ouvrir la trace GPX dans JOSM
  2. Charger les photos dans JOSM
  3. Corréler les photos sur la trace GPX (en surchargeant la position enregistré dans les données EXIF)

Vient ensuite le moment où il faut recaler les photos sur leur emplacement réel. Il faut déplacer les photos une par une. À la fin du processus, vous pouvez sauvegarder les nouvelles coordonnées dans les métadonnées des images. Il ne reste ensuite plus qu'à les envoyer sur Mapillary.

Note : L'envoi sur Mapillary par le plugin JOSM directement ne fonctionnait pas pour nous. Ce n'est pas très grave et si les photos ont été correctement positionnées, il est possible d'utiliser l'envoi en ligne ou les scripts.

Au vu du temps nécessaire pour recaler ces photos une par une, nous avons commencé a modifier JOSM et le plugin photoadjust pour nous faciliter les choses. Une première fonctionnalité a été prototypée. Une fois positionnées deux photos (typiquement au début et a la fin de la rue), le plugin positionne les photos intermédiaires sur une ligne droite en les espaçant de manière régulière. Il est donc important d'avoir pris des photos en marchant autant que possible à vitesse constante et en ligne droite. Le positionnement des photos aux extrémités est en général le plus facile car on peut s'aider des photographies aériennes et des données OSM pour repérer un certain nombre d'éléments (coin de bâtiments, passages piétons, fin de stationnement, parfois même les corbeilles de rues si la photographie aérienne est suffisamment précise). Le résultat est en général très bon, avec uniquement quelques corrections à faire sur les images intermédiaires. Les numéros de bâtiments et photographies aériennes (pour repérer les stationnements ou les coins de bâtiments) sont de précieux outils.

OpenMapKit and OpenDataKit

Posted by mrchuks on 16 December 2018 in English (English)

Last Friday 14th, we organised a webinar with Mr Johanes Petro from Open Map Development, Tanzania. He introduced us to OpenMapKit (OMK) and OpenDataKit (ODK). It was very enlightening. I have installed the apps on my phone and look forward to sharing the knowledge with our students at the Unilag Mappers Team. ODK and OMK will become very useful tools in field surveys for their student projects and other activities.

Kartlägger häganäs bit för bit

Posted by paradigmet on 16 December 2018 in Swedish (Svenska)

Det saknas rätt mycket av Höganäs vilket jag träffar på dagligen små saker. Ofta upptäcker jag saker när jag är ute och springer rundor eller ska planera mina löprundor. Min metod är alltså gps baserad. Jag springer, går eller cyklar. Det gör att kartan fylls med en ok ritning som jag ofta får passa om och göra om i omgångar då gps spåren inte alltid ser likadana ut. Det kan skilja sig på upp till någon meter har jag märkt med min nya sportklocka (garmin fenix 5) vilket jag inte såg med min förra (suunto ambit3 peak).

Läste just ett inspirerande blogginlägg av en som kartlagt Helsingborg systematiskt med rutor i https://tasks.hotosm.org/ med stöd av flygfoton. Detta skulle troligen vara en smartare metod för att systematiskt gå igenom hela orten istället för att lappa och laga endast precis de områden där jag rör mig.

Senaste veckan har jag gett mig på löpspåren, skogsdungar och promenadstråken runt om i Höganäs.

A bit of analysis of the OSMF board election results

Posted by imagico on 15 December 2018 in English (English)

I want to provide a bit of analysis here for this year's OSMF board election results.

The election was ultimately uninteresting in terms of STV voting dynamics since the final results were the same as what they would have been based on first round results only. None the less i want to look at the second choices here.

In STV voters give a priority list of candidates. It essentially says: I want to vote for ** on my list but in case that vote would be pointless for some reason i give my vote to ** and so on. One of the most interesting thing to look at in the ballots is the second choices grouped by first choices. Below you have for example the 189 people who voted for Tobias on position 1 (27.7 percent) grouped by who they voted for at position 2. The most popular choices were Joost with 82 votes (43.3 percent) and Guillaume with 64 votes (33.8 percent). Same for the other candidates. Here are the numbers:

Tobias Knerr 27.7 (189)

  • [none]: 2.64 (5)
  • Jo Walsh: 8.46 (16)
  • Geoffrey Kateregga: 5.29 (10)
  • Joost Schouppe: 43.3 (82)
  • Guillaume Rischard: 33.8 (64)
  • Miriam Gonzalez: 4.23 (8)
  • Nuno Caldeira: 2.11 (4)

Jo Walsh 5.44 (37)

  • [none]: 0 (0)
  • Tobias Knerr: 13.5 (5)
  • Geoffrey Kateregga: 16.2 (6)
  • Joost Schouppe: 21.6 (8)
  • Guillaume Rischard: 13.5 (5)
  • Miriam Gonzalez: 32.4 (12)
  • Nuno Caldeira: 2.70 (1)

Geoffrey Kateregga 10.0 (68)

  • [none]: 4.41 (3)
  • Tobias Knerr: 13.2 (9)
  • Jo Walsh: 0 (0)
  • Joost Schouppe: 25.0 (17)
  • Guillaume Rischard: 8.82 (6)
  • Miriam Gonzalez: 44.1 (30)
  • Nuno Caldeira: 4.41 (3)

Joost Schouppe 20.4 (139)

  • [none]: 2.15 (3)
  • Tobias Knerr: 19.4 (27)
  • Jo Walsh: 4.31 (6)
  • Geoffrey Kateregga: 14.3 (20)
  • Guillaume Rischard: 17.2 (24)
  • Miriam Gonzalez: 39.5 (55)
  • Nuno Caldeira: 2.87 (4)

Guillaume Rischard 13.3 (91)

  • [none]: 1.09 (1)
  • Tobias Knerr: 38.4 (35)
  • Jo Walsh: 5.49 (5)
  • Geoffrey Kateregga: 4.39 (4)
  • Joost Schouppe: 35.1 (32)
  • Miriam Gonzalez: 15.3 (14)
  • Nuno Caldeira: 0 (0)

Miriam Gonzalez 17.2 (117)

  • [none]: 1.70 (2)
  • Tobias Knerr: 7.69 (9)
  • Jo Walsh: 6.83 (8)
  • Geoffrey Kateregga: 35.0 (41)
  • Joost Schouppe: 33.3 (39)
  • Guillaume Rischard: 5.98 (7)
  • Nuno Caldeira: 9.40 (11)

Nuno Caldeira 2.94 (20)

  • [none]: 0 (0)
  • Tobias Knerr: 30.0 (6)
  • Jo Walsh: 0 (0)
  • Geoffrey Kateregga: 15.0 (3)
  • Joost Schouppe: 20.0 (4)
  • Guillaume Rischard: 15.0 (3)
  • Miriam Gonzalez: 20.0 (4)

Overall Joost was a popular second choice among voters across most of the spectrum which allowed him to ultimately maintain his lead on Miriam - even though she got a significant number of second choice votes in round 4 of the STV process when Geoffrey was eliminated.

Relatively speaking Miriam was also a popular second choice across voters of different candidates, in particular Geoffrey, Jo and Joost. Tobias was comparatively popular among voters for Joost, Guillaume and Nuno but not such a popular second choice overall.

If you sum the first and second choice votes (as a theoretical exercise) Joost is ahead of Tobias but they'd both still win.

If you look at it in terms of candidates who - relatively seen - form popular pairs (A-B), i.e. where candidate B is popular among voters of candidate A and candidate A is also popular among voters of candidate B the most popular pairs seem to be

  • Geoffrey-Miriam: 44.1 - 35.0
  • Joost-Miriam: 39.5 - 33.3
  • Guillaume-Tobias: 38.4 - 33.8

Note this is relative numbers - in terms of absolute numbers the combination Tobias-Joost is obviously the most popular with a hundred votes overall having these two at position 1 and 2 in either order.

OpenStreetMap Foundation Chairperson's Report for the 2018 Annual General Meeting

Posted by wonderchook on 15 December 2018 in English (English)

Each and every year I’m impressed by the progress the OSM community has made. Supporting that community is at the core of the OpenStreetMap Foundation. This year the OSMF had its own progress as well, including within the board.

We kicked of the year with a generous donation from the Pineapple Fund which was worth over €200,000. What a wonderful surprise to start the year!

Less of a surprise was work this year to work on making sure OSM and the OSMF are in compliance with GDPR. One of the board’s roles is to approve policies and guidelines, we did quite a bit of that this year. Some updates were because of GDPR and others were policies that did not exist, but were needed.

A few policies were updated this year primarily due to the hard work of the Legal Working Group. The Trademark Policy was updated. Additionally due to GDPR the Privacy Policy and the Terms of Service were updated.

The Organized Editing Policy was developed by the Data Working Group and approved by the board this year to provide guidelines for organizations and groups editing together in a directed fashion.

Fee Waiver Program is not new, but had not as of yet been implemented. The Membership Working Group developed a process for those unable to technically pay and will be developing further process for those with financial hardship. The OSMF Board has already begun an approval process for those requesting a waiver who wish to claim financial hardship.

The OSMF moved in two different ways this year as well. There was a data center move I really appreciate all the hard work the Operations Working Group put into this move.

The year our official address moved as well. Certainly less dramatic than the server move, but important nonetheless. Thanks to Andy Robinson for all the years of hosting as the mail center for the OSMF.

Our new address if you ever need it is: OpenStreetMap Foundation St John’s Innovation Centre Cowley Road Cambridge CB4 0WS United Kingdom

We also gained many new members this year. 660 new individual members total as well as 587 that renewed. It is great to see so many people interested in the OSMF. We also gained six Corporate members, you can see the full list of Corporate Members here. Growth in local chapters also continued as Belgium was also added as a local chapter. A few additional countries are currently in the application phase.

We had an excellent State of the Map this year in Milan and the State of the Map Working Group is hard at work planning for next year in Heidelburg. Thanks for bringing our community together in person.

Overall I think it was a great year to be an OSM contributor! I look forward to the coming years.

I wanted to personally thank Martijn van Exel and Peter Barth who are outgoing on the board. It was a pleasure to work together with you and I hope to continue to see you within OSM. My other fellow board members, we have another year ahead. There is still much I would like to accomplish, let’s get working.

Thank you also to our working groups. Without you we wouldn't get anything done. The Communications Working Group was not mentioned above, but they told the story about all those great accomplishments. Thank you so much!

Dorothea Kazazi also created a series of reports for those that wish to see more additional information.

2018 Year in Review : Look back on Fukushima mapper's activities

Posted by ikiya on 15 December 2018 in Japanese (日本語)

OSM Fukushima

OSMふくしま界隈のこの一年を振り返って!

2018年も残すところ2週間となりました。OSMふくしま界隈のこの一年を振り返ってみました!以下のように活動トピックを書き出し、メンバーで振り返り会をしてみました。

とは言ってもOSMの福島エリアは、国内外から多くのマッパーが日常的に編集貢献が行われています。ローカルマッパーのみならず多くのメンバーの手によってOSM福島エリアは成り立っています(感謝)。 また昨今嬉しいことにいくつかの流れから地元の新規編集者も増えています。 OSMふくしま界隈振り返りとしましたが、面識のあるメンバー内、知りえた範囲での内容となっています。ご了承ください。

昨年2017年はOSM年次国際カンファレンスState of the Map 2017の会津若松市開催があり、地元メンバーにとってもOSMキャリア最大の一年となりました。 今年2018年は寂しいかなと振り返り会をしてみると、思った以上に多様な活動をしていました。おそらく"SotM2017効果"でしょう。 国際カンファレンス開催にはメンバーにとっても大きなエネルギーが必要でした。それを踏んだ後、メンバーの視野と基盤が少しですが底上げされている実感があります。 なので、静かなようでなかなか活動している2018年と見えました。

2017年12月Mapillaryアンバサダー結婚披露宴式でのMapillaryプレゼンテーションを大掛かりに行ったのを皮切りに、1月Ingressエージェント向けOSM勉強会等々活動が続きました。 年間を通して見て、成長期(失礼ながら)にあるMapillaryに関する活動が多くなっています。結果、マッピングのための風景撮影、Mapillaryのハンドリング関しては国内(世界;)ではリードしていると思います。

OSMマッピングについては、未だ広い県内の基本マッピング(道路、建物)の途上です。それでもトピックな場所に関してはフォローしていきたいと考えています。 震災後滞っていた福島県沿岸部のOSM更新は、平成30年度国土地理院の空中写真撮影(解像度20cm)が計画されているので最新写真の公開によって編集は飛躍的に進むと思います。 このエリアは編集ソースが少なく、地理院地図の面的更新も限られ、津波や復興工事で大きく変わった地形についてOSM編集するには手に負えない部分がありました。また、会津若松市中心地についても同様の撮影が今年度予定されています。 国土地理院の空中写真撮影、公開に大きく期待したいと思います。

2019年もOepnSteetMapの発展のために仲間と共に貢献したいと思います。 楽しみましょうOSM。

Kutengeneza Ramani

  • John Whelan hisa maoni yake kuhusu mrad kuunda Canada 2020 na jinsi ya kuendelea na majengo ya ramani. Kuondolewa kwa takwimu za serikali na matarajio ambayo Microsoft itaachia nyaraka za ujenzi kama walivyofanya kwa Marekani inamfanya kuhitimisha kuwa kuongeza kwa metadata inaweza kuwa bora kuliko kuwa na wapiga mapaji wasio na ujuzi kufuatilia majengo kwa kutumia iD.

  • Pendekezo (de) (moja kwa moja tafsiri) imeonekana kutoka majadiliano katika jukwaa la Kijerumani kuhusu sheria za matumizi ya mahusiano na aina = multipolygon. Nia ya pendekezo ni, tu alisema, kuepuka mahusiano ya multipolygon ikiwa jiometri inaweza kupangiliwa kwa njia moja inayowakilisha eneo, yaani hakuna maeneo ya ndani na chini ya nodes 2000 kwa njia ya nje ya eneo hilo. Mada hii sasa inajadiliwa kwenye jukwaa German forum (de) (automatic translation ) na German mailing list (de) (automatic translation) na inalenga kuwa mwongozo wa mazoezi bora kwa Ujerumani awali.

  • Kupigia kura kwenye pendekezo la lebo boundary=aboriginal_lands kwa wilaya rasmi ya makundi ya asili imeanza miaka minane baada ya kuandaa yake na imefunguliwa hadi tarehe 8 Desemba 2018. Alan McConchie aliunda Suala la GitHub kwa mtindo wa ramani ya OSM Carto pia na inapendekeza utoaji wa rangi ya kahawia

  • Warin alihisi kwamba Wiki kwa antenna inahitajika upya ili kuruhusu ufafanuzi bora wa aina ya antenna. Kama yeye ni kuchanganyikiwa na maadili ya muhimu antenna: aina katika sehemu ya Kijerumani ya wiki na pia haipendi ufunguo huo, anaangalia njia mbadala.

Jamii

  • InfosReseaux aliandika chapisho kwenye jarida lake la OSM kuhusu ramani ya miundombinu kama mitandao ya nguvu. Makala inaelezea jinsi ujuzi wa miundombinu unabadilika kutoka kwa wamiliki kufungua ujuzi na OSM na jinsi ramani ya miundombinu inafanya OSM kuwa bora zaidi.

  • Kama hivi karibuni umetumia Pascal Neis' How You Contribute tovuti, huenda umeona sehemu mpya inayoitwa Kutumiwa kwa presets - Juu 3. Katika chapisho la blogu Pascal anaelezea kuwa ni lengo la kiashiria kipya cha ubora.

Taasisi ya OpenStreetMap

  • Hivi karibuni Uamuzi wa DWG juu ya uongo wa Crimea umesababisha majadiliano mengi:

  • muhtasari wa lugha ya Kirusi katika OSM-Blog ya Zverik (ru) (automatic translation)

  • Majadiliano katika Kiukreni OSM-Forum (sehemu ya Kiingereza, sehemu ya Kiukreni) (automatic translation)

  • Mazungumzo juu ya majadiliano orodha ya barua pepe ilianza na baada ya kukataa uamuzi.

  • Machapisho kadhaa ya diary ya OSM na wapiga mapapa wa Kiukreni wanaopinga uamuzi ikiwa ni pamoja na hii na Kilkenni (kwa maoni mengi, ikiwa ni pamoja na baadhi ya kupinga mashambulizi ya ad-hominem ambayo ina).

  • Juu ya reddit

  • Watu wengi wamependekeza jinsi ya kupigia maeneo yaliyotofautiana na yaliyodai kwenye Talk na Tagging ([1](https: / /lists.openstreetmap.org/pipermail/tagging/2018-November/041112.html), 2) orodha za barua. (pendekezo la johnparis, mapendekezo ya Rory). Pia ilijadiliwa kama ni busara kuhifadhiwa madai hayo katika OSM wakati wote.

  • Mtu ametumamalalamiko rasmi kwa bodi ya wakurugenzi wa OSMF.

  • Bodi ya OSMF ilipasha habari wanachama ambao wamekataa ombi la kukataa maombi ya uanachama kuhusiana na "molekuli kuandikisha akaunti mpya 100 mnamo Novemba 15, 2018 kutoka India, wengi kutoka kwa anwani moja ya IP kutoka kampuni inayojulikana kwa OpenStreetMap. Wanachama wapya hawastahiki kupiga kura mwaka huu. Hata hivyo, uamuzi ulifuatiwa na mjadala wa muda mrefu juu ya orodha ya barua pepe.

  • Joost Schouppe, mgombea wa uchaguzi wa bodi ya OSMF ya mwaka huu, alichambua uanachama wa OSMF wa nchi kwa jumla na kuhusiana na idadi ya wafadhili.

  • Dakika ya Mikutano ya Kundi la Kazi ya Data ya 10 Julai, 13 Septemba na 15 Novemba zimechapishwa katika eneo la "dakika ya kazi".

OSM ya Kibinadamu

  • Erasmus + OpenStreetMap ya Uhuru wa Ulaya ya Vijana (euYoutH_OSM) Wanafunzi alitangaza kwenye tweet ambayo mnamo Novemba 23, walimu wengine wa ESJEA walianza mafunzo yao katika OpenStreetMap katika kikao kilichoongozwa na walimu Nuno Azevedo na Elizabete Oliveira. Walimu walifanya kazi na JOSM kuweka Kitanda cha Terceira zaidi na zaidi kwenye ramani. euYoutH_OSM alitangaza mnamo Novemba 26, kozi ya Mafunzo ya Michezo ilikuwa na nafasi ya kupokea mafunzo katika JOSM. Walihitimu wa kozi hii wamejifunza jinsi ya kuunda majengo, mali na kuchapa miundo ambayo bado inaweza kupangwa.

  • HOT na Kathmandu Living Labs itashirikiana na ramani ya Kathmandu, mji mkuu wa Nepali. KLL itaweka majengo mbali mbali kabla ya habari itakusanyika chini ili kukamilisha tathmini. Matokeo yatatumika kuthibitisha seti za data kwa Nepal ambazo zinaonyesha kutolewa kwa kanda kwa hatari za asili.

  • Wanafunzi watatu wa sayansi ya data wanauliza kwa "mikoa kuthibitishwa" kwa ajili ya mradi wa kujifunza mashine. Mpango ni kupakua dataset ili kufundisha na kupima mifano ya ramani ya automatiska kwa kutumia picha za satelaiti.

Elimu

  • Sehemu ya Machafuko ya Dhamana ya Data Analyst course inatumia Openstreetmap kama mradi. Wanafunzi huletwa kwa OSM na mfano wa data na wanapaswa kuuza nje, kuchuja na kuchambua eneo kubwa kutoka kwa OSM.

  • SotM Asia 2018 group photo

Mkutano wa State of the Map Asia 2018 ulileta pamoja watengenezaji wa ramani kutoka nchi 12 duniani kote. Ilikuwa siku mbili za vikao vya kuvutia na warsha. Pata maelezo zaidi kwenye tovuti na tweets za tukio kwenye hashtag hii: #SotMAsia18.

Kutengeneza Ramani

  • Jinsi ya kukabiliana na majina ya lugha nyingi ni swali la kawaida katika OSM na kumekuwa na majadiliano mengi ya awali juu ya jinsi ya kukabiliana nayo. Hapa kuna majadiliano (de) (tafsiri ya moja kwa moja) kuhusu kutumia lugha mbili "kikomo cha mji" ishara za trafiki nchini Austria katika orodha ya barua pepe ya Austria wiki iliyopita.

  • Simon Poole amekadiria kwamba nusu ya anwani zote za Uswisi zimeongezwa kwenye ramani ya OSM tayari.

  • Kwa mujibu wa makala ya Anton Khorev mila tofauti tofauti ya ghorofa kutoka nchi hadi nchi inafanya kuwa vigumu kuelewa maadili ya level=. Katika chapisho lake kamili, anaelezea suala hilo na kwa nini si rahisi kutatua kama inaweza kuonekana.

  • Kupiga kura kwa office=diplomatic (zamani Consulate) unaendelea. Inatarajia kutofautisha kati ya ofisi za kidiplomasia, consular na aina nyingine za ofisi za serikali. Pendekezo liliandaliwa na mtaalam katika eneo hili, balozi.

  • François Lacombe anaulizia kwa maoni juu ya pendekezo lake kwa sifa za ziada kwenye mabomba na mabomba ya maji.

  • Joseph Eisenberg anaulizia ushauri juu ya jinsi ya kutambulisha tag Neighborhood Gateway Signs kwa sababu zipo Indonesia na sehemu nyingine za dunia kama Portland na San Diego.

Jamii

  • Pascal Neis, tangu Oktoba 2018 Profesa wa Geo-Government katika Chuo Kikuu cha Mainz cha Applied Sciences, alifanya idadi ya wastani ya wafadhili wa OSM kwa kila nchi ya kipindi cha miezi kumi na miwili kupatikana kwa kupakuliwa kama faili ya csv. Kwa mujibu wa tweet, hii ni data anayotumia kwa osmstats.neis-one.org.

  • Jumuiya ya OSM ya Kicheki inabainisha kuhusu kuanzishwa kwa shirika la OpenStreetMap Česká republika z.s.. Shirika lina wanachama 14 waanzilishi na litatumika kuwa sura ya OSMF ya eneo hili. Tomáš Kašpárek, Marián Kyral and Jakub Těšínský walichaguliwa kuwa wajumbe wa bodi ya kwanza.

  • Jakob Miksch alitayarisha maelezo mazuri ya OSM, katika blogu yake.

  • Kutoka 5 hadi 9 ya Novemba vikao vya mafunzo ya GIS na OSM vilifanyika kwa mashirika ya kibinadamu ya kimataifa huko Mali.. Vikao hivi vilipangwa katika jengo la OCHA na jumuiya ya OpenStreetMap Mali na msaada kutoka Francophony international volunteers huko Mali.

  • OSM Diaries imechapisha video fupi ya YouTube kuhusu historia ya editing ya OSM ya Gregory Marler. Katika video anafananisha uhariri wa OSM miaka kumi iliyopita na sasa.

  • OpenStreetMap Benin - na msaada wa International Volunteer of La Francophonie - iliandaa semina ya siku 3 ya OpenStreetMap kwa wanawake kutoka asili mbalimbali za kijamii na kitaaluma. Mafunzo yalifanyika kwenye kambi ya Francophone Digital ya Cotonou.

Taasisi ya OpenStreetMap

  • Rob Nickerson aliulizia uwakilishi wa OSMF kuhusu hali ya Fee Waiver Program, ambayo iliamuliwa mwaka 2014 na tarehe ya kutekeleza ilikuwa mwisho wa mwaka huo.

  • Paul Normann alitangaza programu ya OSMF ya kuondoa ada katika orodha ya barua pepe ya OSMF mnamo Novemba 15. Programu hii itawaruhusu wale waliojiunga na ambao hawakuweza kutokea hapo awali kutokana na ukosefu wa chaguo la bei za uhamisho wa fedha au kwa ajili ya gharama ambazo ni marufuku ikilinganishwa na mapato katika sehemu yao ya ulimwengu.

  • Dakika za mkutano wa kikundi cha kazi cha leseni iliyofanyika Novemba 8 zimechapishwa. Moja ya mada ilikuwa Maagizo juu ya kukabiliana na malalamiko ya hati miliki ya DMCA.

  • Michael Collinson alichapisha seti rasmi ya maswali kwa wagombea wa uchaguzi wa bodi ya OSMF. Wagombea wanatakiwa kuwasilisha majibu yao na maonyesho kupitia barua pepe mnamo Novemba 30.

  • Christoph Hormann anaeleza maoni yake ya mkutano wa bodi ya OSMF mnamo tarehe 15 Novemba katika chapisho la blogu yenye mada_The most surreal and memorable OSMF board meeting yet_.Anamtaja mtu anayefikiri anawezaongoza kupunguzwa kwa Miongozo ya Kuhariri na anakosoa rasimu ya sera kutoka kwa kampuni isiyojulikana bado imefungwa.

  • Kikundi cha kazi cha takwimu cha OSMF imechapisha uamuzi wake kuwa Peninsula ya Crimea ni ya Russia. Uamuzi umeweka sheria kwa matumizi ya (yasiyo ya) addr:country=* na mahitaji ya maoni ya mabadiliko katika kanda. Uamuzi huu unabadilisha sheria zilizopita.

Matukio

  • Mkutano wa SotM Asia ulifanyika wikendi hii! Ilihudhuriwa na washiriki karibu 280 kutoka nchi 12 kwa siku mbili kujazwa na shauku, msisimko, vikao vya kuvutia, paneli, warsha zinazohusiana na kutumia OpenStreetMap Timu ya kuandaa inawashukuru kwa wote kwa kufanya tukio hili kufanikiwa!

Akaunti ya Twitter ya SotM Asia inakupa wazo la mawasilisho na mazungumzo uliofanyika pamoja na maoni mengi ya kuona. Imepangwa kupakia mawasilisho kwenye kituo cha [cha YouTube] cha kujitolea(https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCR7PMzU0l__u8Pt73QyHWAQ/featured).

  • Mkutano wa FOSDEM 2019 utafanyika tarehe 2 na 3 ya Februari 2019 huko Brussels. Kwa miaka michache mkutano umejumuisha mkutano wa kijiografia, inayoitisha mapendekezo ya majadiliano.

  • Watu zaidi ya 110, walioalikwa na Doctors Without Borders, walikuja (fr) (tafsiri moja kwa moja) Ijumaa mnamo 16 Novemba UPNA kutengeneza ramani mbili za Caracas na Niger kwa kutumia picha za satelaiti.

OSM ya Kibinadamu

  • Melanie Eckle amechapisha dakika za mkutano wa HOT bodi ya 8 Novemba. Ilikuwa mkutano wa kwanza wa bodi ambao ulikuwa wazi kwa wajumbe.

  • HOT intumia zana zilizo wazi ili kupigana na malaria nchini Guatemala. Katika makala HOT anaelezea jinsi wanavyohusika na Mpango wa Afya wa Clinton Access na Wizara ya Afya ya Guatemala. HOT waliongeza majengo zaidi ya 1,600 katika OpenStreetMap katika eneo la Escuintla ili kusaidia uratibu wa kunyunyizia ndani ya majengo.

Ramani

  • With the newest update, OpenStreetBrowser inasaidia kuchora (kama vichwa vya mshale) kwa njia, ambayo sasa inatumiwa kwenye ramani ya mzunguko wa barabara na ramani ya usafiri wa umma. Ramani ya barabara ya mzunguko inapata maelekezo kutoka kwa njia (mbele / nyuma), ramani ya usafiri wa umma kutoka kwenye uhusiano na njia ya awali / inayofuata (kama ilivyoelezwa katika PT Schema v2). Soma zaidi. Ili kujiandaa kwa msimu wa Krismasi, kuna "Vipengele vipya vya Krismasi" category.

switch2OSM

  • Gmaps, kudai kuwa moduli ya kwanza ya ExpressionEngine, imebadilisha jina lake kwa kutumia formula Gmaps - Google = Maps. Kuongezeka kwa ada za Google na kupunguzwa kwa huduma zake za bure imesababisha na watengenezaji kuelekea chanzo zilizo wazi na msaada wa watoaji wa ramani kadhaa, kama OSM.

Programu

  • Richard Fairhurst aliandika kuwa tovuti yake ya cycle.travel sasa pia inashughulikia Scandinavia na sehemu za Ulaya Mashariki.

  • Programu ya StreetComplete imepata nyota1000katika hifadhi ya GitHub.

Programming

  • Hifadhi ya Github ya GIScience HD tayari ina zaidi ya vituo 50 vya wazi na bado inakua. Mengi yanahusiana na OSM, kutoka kwa njia ya uendeshaji, usindikaji, kusimamia, kuchambua, kutazama na kadhalika. Nani anataka kushiriki? https://github.com/GIScience

  • Ikiwa daima unataka kupakia kwa marekebisho kuwa kasi, sasa kuna nafasi yako ya kusaidia. Upakiaji wa mabadiliko umewekwa kikamilifu na wapimaji wanatakiwa (de)(tafsiri ya moja kwa moja) kupima programu na iD, Potlatch or JOSM. mmd pia alichapisha maagizo juu ya jinsi ya kusaidia kwa kupima kwa Kiingereza, kwa hivyo kutozungumza Ujerumani sio msamaha tena;)

Matoleo

  • Martijn van Exel amesasisha MapRoulette kwa toleo 3.1.1 katika maproulette.org. Katika blogu yake ya mtumiaji Martijn anafafanua vipengele vipya, vinavyojumuisha upatikanaji wa picha za Mapillary katika MapRoulette, kujenga upya kazi na kiongozi wa umma kwa kila changamoto.

  • Wambacher amesasisha orodha yake kamili ya programu husika za OSM. Sasishi za hivi karibuni ni kama Naviki Android 3.1810.1, OpenStreetCam Android , Traccar Server 4.2 and Vespucci 11.2.0.

  • Potlatch 2 bado ipo na imehifadhiwa kikamilifu. Richard Fairhurst alitangaza sasisho mbili.

Je, wajua

  • ... programu ya Shareloc ambayo inaruhusu kujenga na kushiriki ramani za OpenLayers?

  • ... mji wa Ujerumani Schnöggersburg? Mji huo, ambao hutumiwa kama uwanja wa mafunzo kwa silaha, ulikuwa kwa gazeti (de) (tafsiri moja kwa moja) mwaka wa 2012. Mtengenezaji wa ramani "aligundua" mji ambao umeanzisha majadiliano mapya (de) (tafsiri moja kwa moja) katika jukwaa la Ujerumani kuhusu kutambulisha na kuongeza mitambo ya kijeshi kwenye ramani.

Vingine vya kijeographia

  • Doug Rinckes alizindua zana ya Plus code grid katika grid.plus.codes. Programu ya Plus code, au Open Location Code kama inavyoitwa kirasmi, awali ilianzishwa na Google. Mfumo huonekana kama utata katika OSM na umesababisha majadiliano katika GitHub, orodha ya barua pepe na maeneo mengine.

  • New York Times ilichapisha makala yenye mada A Map of Every Building in America ambayo inatoa mtazamo tofauti juu ya maendeleo ya makazi nchini Marekani na utaratibu wa majengo katika hali hiyo. Makala hiyo inajadili kuhusu ramani kwa mizani tofauti, kutoka kwenye mchoro wa taifa takwimu-ardhi kwenye ramani ya vitongoji huko Mesa, Arizona. makala, katika New York Times, inashughulikia hadithi ya jinsi ramani zilivyotumika kwa kutumia data ya majengo ambayo Microsoft ilitoa mwaka huu (na inapatikana kwa matumizi katika OSM pia).

  • Tovuti ya basikeli road.cc imejaribu kutumia GPS Hammerhead Karoo. Katika makala mwandishi, Dave Atkinson, anaelezea kwa nini kifaa hiki ni GPS bora zaidi kwa lengo lake, hata hivyo anadhani bado kuna nafasi ya kuboresha.

Thankful for endorsements and support in OSMF board election

Posted by Stereo on 14 December 2018 in English (English)

As we approach the 2018 OSMF general assembly, I am extremely thankful for the support and endorsements that I have received from mappers.

Peter Barth, who is retiring from the board, has said some very nice things about me on the German Radio OSM podcast, chapter 32.

Christian Quest, cofounder and speaker of OpenStreetMap France, has endorsed me in a blog post:

The absence of conflict of interest and a good knowledge of the community in its diversity seem to me to be the main criteria.

Richard Fairhurst, former OSMF board member and father of the Potlatch editor and cycle.travel, has tweeted some of the nicest things about me:

I hope [Guillaume Rischard] is elected: smart, grounded, widely experienced and with a real sense of OSM’s potential, he’d be a great asset to the board and to the project in general.

I'm delighted to see the likes and retweets that this received from other mappers too.

You don’t expect candidates to endorse another, but that’s what Jo Walsh tweeted:

I’m impressed with the amount you’re doing for OSM behind the scenes and hope you get elected, as grassroots members would trust the Board more if you were on it.

Then there are all the wonderful private messages of support and encouragement. Thank all of you.

Thank you to all the OSMF members – the fact that we’re 1041 voters this year shows how many care about the OSMF. Thank you to my fellow candidates, for your time investment, for the positive campaign and for the spirit of comradeship I have felt with you.

510 people have already cast their ballot. If you haven’t yet, you have less than 24 hours to do so. The last election was decided on 19 votes, so your vote matters! Please vote, encourage OSMF members around you to vote. A high turnout will make the community stronger and the OSMF more resilient.

If you haven’t chosen for whom to vote yet, here are my answers to the official questions and manifesto.

Important: When voting on opavote, enable JavaScript and disable ad blockers and plugins like Decentraleyes. You risk casting a blank ballot otherwise!

My edits in Bergen County, part 6

Posted by ComBlOp on 14 December 2018 in English (English)

It's been a short time of 16 days since I finished editing Hackensack, and I've already finished Leonia! Not quite as fast as I was hoping (Palisades Park took around half as many days), but still pretty good in my eyes.

I don't know much about Leonia, but to me it seems like a less dense extension of Palisades Park. It still is pretty dense, but not quite as dense as Palisades Park which has around 4 times more people per square mile.

Next up is Maywood, which borders two places I've already mapped: Hackensack and Paramus. Maywood is pretty small and somewhat dense, and that's what I like when mapping!

I'm almost at 700 edits, and I'm hoping to reach that milestone very soon while mapping Maywood.

I'm at 6 out of 70 places in Bergen County done, and it's only been slightly less than 6 months. I've covered 11% of the county's land area, which I'd say is pretty good!

"-역"

Posted by garam+ on 14 December 2018 in Korean (한국어)

들어오지 않은 사이에 "-역"을 제거하기로 되었던 모양입니다. https://www.openstreetmap.org/user/GPIOIPG/diary/47065

하지만 여기서 간과된 사실이 있습니다. 검색하는 사람들에 대한 배려가 하나도 되어 있지 않습니다. 이 말인 즉슨, 사람들이 지도에서 역을 검색할 때에는 "서울역"으로 검색을 하지, "서울"로 검색을 하지 않는다는 점입니다. 현재 "서울역"이나 "부산역"으로 검색할 때에 다행히도 역사 건물은 "-역" 이름을 유지하고 있어서 역 위치를 비슷하게 잡아주지만, 대다수의 전철역들에서는 그러한 것을 기대하기가 힘듭니다. 단적인 예로, 부산의 대표적인 역인 "부전역"을 검색하면 이제 더이상 부전동의 역은 표시되지 않고 함경남도에 있는 동명의 역만을 인식하고 그 외에는 부전동의 역 주변의 버스정류장이 표시될 뿐입니다.

지도의 역할은 위치를 파악하는 것이나 "-역"을 제거하자 그 역할을 제대로 수행하지 못하는 상황이 되어 좀 난감한데, 이 부분에 대해서는 대안으로 name:ko에 "-역"을 포함한 이름을 포함하는 방법이 있습니다.(예: https://www.openstreetmap.org/node/355173789 ) 이와 관련해서 여러 의견을 듣고 싶습니다.

Monitor OSM changes

Posted by Cascafico on 14 December 2018 in Italian (Italiano)

about

Mountain hiking association asked me to monitor local hiking relations from edits done by other mappers. I wrote this script which generates an html page with OSM changeset involving daily changes. It is feeded by overpass-turbo query, like this, so you can customize which OSM objects to monitor.

steps

The mentioned monitor script will:

  • extract relations modified in the last 24h and tagged operator="CAI" in area provided as argument
  • filter useful informations
  • format an html file with OSM, Achavi and OSMcha links

automate runs

Of course it can be run periodically using crontab. To set a daily run, just execute
$ crontab -l
add a line like below, customizing your script path:
0 0 * * * /home/pi/scripts/monitor.sh >> /dev/null 2>&1

telegram

My instance include a telegram service fired when a changeset list is written. I use telegram-cli with the following line in script:
echo "msg $CHANNEL $MESSAGE"; echo "safe_quit" | /home/pi/apps/tg/bin/telegram-cli -W

Just add telegram CHANNEL and MESSAGE variables and insert the line inside $CHAN==0 else if

TODO

Fix area names which include spaces, ie "Cividale del Friuli"

ÖPNV vs OSM vs Realität

Posted by MKnight on 13 December 2018 in German (Deutsch)

Neulich so: ÖPNV im Ort schreibt mir per OSM, ob ich Bock hätte, die zu einem bestimmten Problem zu beraten und mir mal deren IT/Routing-Lösungen anschauen mag. Ich so: Geil!

Heute hatte ich einen Termin, und das war sehr fruchtbar. Das Letzte zuerst: mein Ansprechpartner hat mir zugesichert, einen riesigen Sack voll Daten bei mir abzukippen unter der vorläufigen Abmachung, diese nur zum Vergleich zu verwenden, aber er die uneingeschränkte (OSM)Nutzung erfragt. Uneingeschränkte Nutzung der Daten ist kompliziert, da es da schon diverse Neins gab.

Die Neins wurden erklärt, dass die Entscheider Probleme damit haben, dass die Routen etc. fehleranfällig wären. (Konkret ging es dabei allerdings um die Fahrpläne, nicht die Routen)

Das zweitletzte als nächstes: Routenrelationen interessiert den ÖPNV (bzw deren Software) aktuell überhaupt nicht. Die Software (trapeze group/LIO) nutzt OSM für proprietäres Routing, die eigentlichen Routen kommen (wenn ich das richtig verstanden habe) per kml rein.

Die Beratung, nunja, die war recht kompliziert. Also nicht die Beratung, sondern die Software. Die sah so nach 100.000+ Euro aus, klar, dass die Scheisse ist. Ich hab mir die Routing-Software angeschaut und erklären lassen, und da gabs diverse Dinge am Routing.

  • Wenn jmd. (in OSM) irgendwo eine Baustelle aufmacht und eine Umleitung erstellt, dann ist das ganze System kaputt. Das GPS der Busse ist fest mit der Route der Busse verknüpft und wenn die Stadt und OSM sagt: da ist eine Baustelle und DA ist eine Umleitung, dann kollabiert das, weil die (über OSM liegende) kml sagt: wir sind hier falsch.
  • das wirklich schlimme dabei: das trapeze/LIO-dingens ist eine enterprice-suite und funktioniert scheinbar auch so. Wenn die per GPS überwachte OSM-Route nicht mit der KML übereinstimmt, dann hat der Bus weder Einnahmen-statistik noch Ansagen auf dem Passagierdisplay.

P.s. Ich fand das Treffen sehr angenehm
