Catarman Airport runway and highway crossing

Posted by maning on 15 May 2015 in English (English)

Cataman Airport

The first time I saw this in the map, I've always thought it was an editing mistake. This is Catarman Airport in Northern Samar, Philippines. What looks to me as a bug is the secondary road intersecting with the airport's runway! Surely an editing mistake. But since I haven't been there and the satellite image is too coarse, I cannot verify if this is indeed the case.

Yesterday, I had a chance to talk to locals familiar in the area and they indeed verified that this is correct. The airport services one or two flights a day. Vehicles are allowed to cross the runway in between flights similar to a railway level crossing. Aerial shots from wikipedia and from another website confirms this as well.

My question is, how do I tag this? Surely, there are similar situations in other areas.

Airline offices in Kampala (UG)

Posted by Jotam on 14 May 2015 in English (English)

When I realised that many airline offices in Uganda's capital Kampala were missing, I decided to follow up on it and to put all major airlines on the Kampala map.

I now believe to have mapped the offices of every major airline that serves Entebbe International Airport (EBB). In case I missed out on one please let me know.

Недельное задание 9: статистика

Posted by edward17 on 14 May 2015 in Russian (Русский)

Совсем скоро в Новом Роздоле волонтёры будут уточнять карту OSM, как сообщил на форуме olehz (зачем?). Там же он предложил подготовить для них город - внести всю информацию, ради которой не нужно вставать с дивана.

Это недельное задание было фактически первым, в котором использовался пирог в MapCraft. Так как в будущем его состояние может измениться, вот его состояние в конце недели:

Почему "фактически первым"? На прошлой неделе тоже были пироги, но ими почти никто не пользовался.

Статистика по главным изменённым объектам:

Были добавлены 7 школ, 3 детских сада и 1 колледж. А также 3 парковки, 1 АЗС и автобусная станция.

Использовались не только спутниковые снимки Bing и MapBox, но и данные, предоставленные горсоветом (раз, два).

7 пользователей приняли участие в данном задании. Они отправили более 165 пакетов правок, в которых было более 17 000 изменений.

Google Map Maker is Down

Posted by lib2know on 13 May 2015 in English (English)

Google shut down it's Map Maker. They keep out their community until the algorithms recognize symbols with androids pissing on apples ;-) What, if they do something else on a window?

Please feed your blogs and social media with this information in a polite and decent way. Maybe we can attract more mapping enthusiasts as contributors to OpenStreetMap !

Mapillary-Straßenbahnmapping

Posted by Nakaner on 13 May 2015 in German (Deutsch)

In den vergangenen Tagen habe ich mich der fotografischen Erfassung des Karlsruher Straßen- und Stadtbahnnetzes gewidmet. Da alle Straßenbahnen und 3 Stadtbahnlinien mit Einrichtungsfahrzeugen bedient werden, geht das mit einem Smartphone relativ einfach. Da in sämtlichen Karlsruher Fahrzeugen (auch die allerneusten Ein- und Zweisystemfahrzeuge) GPS-Empfang besteht, steht dem Mapillieren nichts im Wege.

Mapillierendes Smartphone in einer Karlsruher Stadtbahn

"Einfach ganz hinten reinsetzen und Mapillary starten" ist die Kurzfassung der Tätigkeitsbeschreibung. Die Langfassung erhält zusätzlich noch folgende Kommentare:

  • Wenn dein Smartphone keinen guten GPS-Chipsatz hat, dann verwende einen externen GPS-Logger, wie ich z.B. einen Holux M-241, der per Bluetooth gekoppelt wird.
  • Schalte den GPS-Logger fünf bis zehn Minuten vor Fahrtbeginn ein, verbringe innerhalb dieser Zeit mindestens drei Minuten an einem Ort mit geringer Abschattung.
  • Steig an einer Station ein, wo die Bahn noch relativ gering gefüllt ist. Vermeide den Berufsverkehr, steig bei radialen Linien vor der Durchquerung der Innenstadt ein.
  • Stelle dein Smartphone auf das Brett vor der Heckscheibe (darunter befinden sich die Bedienelemente zum Rückwärtsfahren), lehne dein Smartphone möglichst an die Scheibe. Eine sockenartige Handyhülle ist empfehlenswert als Antirutschmatten-Ersatz.
  • Sichere mit einem Finger das Smartphone, sonst kippt es bei einer ruppigen Bremsung oder einem Gleislagefehler um. (Das obige Foto wurde während des Halts in Rüppurr Battstraße aufgenommen)
  • Behalte das Bild im Auge. Der Horizont im Kamera-View sollte mit dem Horizont übereinstimmen. In scharfen Kurven musst du das Smartphone um die z-Achse drehen, wenn du Wert auf gute Bilder legst. (In extrem scharfen Kurven wie der Wendeschleife in Bad Herrenalb bis zu 45°)
  • Vermeide den NET 2012. Der GPS-Empfang ist zwar nicht erheblich schlechter, aber die Luftfederung hat ein Aufschaukelverhalten (v.a. zwischen Hauptfriedhof und Hirtenweg/Technologiepark). Außerdem ist dort die Ablagefläche vor dem Fenster recht tief.
  • Halte dich während der Fahrt fest.
  • Vermeide Gegenlicht. Falls es doch auftritt – fahr in die anderer Richtung, warte auf bewölkten Himmel oder versuche es morgens, wenn das Gegenlicht abends auftritt.

OSM trip

Posted by aleene on 13 May 2015 in English (English)

Did a small trip in the Dévoluy yesterday in order to find some OSM objects.

Guideposts

Added a lot of guideposts with hiking, mtb and bicyle info. Been careful to tag the purpose of the guidepost, i.e. hiking, bicycle or mtb. So they will turn up if you do the right query.

Destination Signs

For all guideposts I added relevant destination signs and corresponding relationships. Also added the purpose tags, i.e. mtb or hiking

Speed limits

All the relevant speed limits have been added

Route

A long part of my trip followed a bicycle route. Still incomplete, but I added it anyway.

OpenStreetMap api for Android Application Development

Posted by susan812 on 13 May 2015 in English (English)

The OSM APIs themselves are RESTful APIs, you can interact with them using standard HTTP requests. The main OSM Api is generally used to interact with OSM data and is used to make editors. If you want to just fetch osm data (like specific POIs) i recommend you take a look at overpass api. Please remember that with OSM you have access to the underlying map data itself unlike Google Maps and these are API to access those. If you just want map tiles or routing functionality check out the options below.

For offline maps using OSM data i find three libraries very much useful.

osmdroid: I use this library if i have to work with tiles that are in mbtiles format that i generate using tilemill. There is a bonus library for routing called osmbonuspack that adds lots of routing and POI functionality to this library. Also mapbox has released Mapbox Android SDK based on this library. I haven't tried it but it may be worth a look.

mapsforge: I use this library when i need to have the map data in vector format and also because it works with another great library called graphhopper in android application development.

graphhopper: I use this library for offline routing using osm data. This is a lightweight java routing library which work for android as well.

I suggest you take a look at these libraries if you want to use OSM with android. Also after you get somewhat familiar with these libraries i suggest you take a look at the code for popular android based tools for osm like osmand, osmtracker and Vespucci

4 sai lầm nghiêm trọng khi đắp mặt nạ mật ong

Posted by hoanganh1 on 13 May 2015 in Vietnamese (Tiếng Việt)

Chị em mình dùng rất nhiều loại mỹ phẩm thiên nhiên để làm đẹp da nhưng phổ biến nhất vẫn là cách đắp mặt nạ mật ong. Tuy nhiên, có rất nhiều sai lầm dễ mắc phải mà nhiều người không hề biết khi làm đẹp tại nhà.

Mật ong 1.Dùng lẫn lộn các loại mặt nạ Có 5 loại da phổ biến và tương ứng với mội kiểu da lại có các mặt nạ khác nhau. Khi bạn áp dụng lẫn lộn các loại mặt nạ không phù hợp với da của mình sẽ khiến da bị xỉn màu thậm chí bị dị ứng, mẩn ngứa. Vì vậy bạn cần cẩn trọng khi dap mat na mat ong. 2.Đắp mặt nạ hàng ngày Tần suất lý tưởng để thực hiện việc dap mat na mat ong chính là 2-3 lần/tuần. Nhiều người lầm tưởng rằng thực hiện việc làm đẹp với mật ong này hàng ngày sẽ giúp da khỏe mạnh, mịn màng nhưng đó hoàn toàn là sai lầm. Da của bạn có thể bị mẩn đỏ và mất đi sức đề kháng vốn có. 3. Không bảo vệ da sau khi đắp mặt nạ Đây là sai lầm phổ biến. Nhiều chị em đi không bảo vệ da trước tia tử ngoại hoặc bụi bẩn mặc dù vừa chăm sóc da. Đây là thời điểm da cực dễ bị thương tổn và nhạy cảm, chính vì vậy bạn nên lưu ý để tránh lợi bất cập hại khi làm đẹp với mật ong. 4. Sử dụng mật ong cho mọi vùng da

Thành phần của thực phẩm này có chứa chất làm giãn tĩnh mạch. Chính vì vậy, các vùng da mỏng như bẹn, cổ chân, đùi... dễ bị dị ứng khi bạn đắp mặt nạ mật ong.

Second Attempt at OSM

Posted by Enxsjp on 12 May 2015 in English (English)

I have managed to grab some more time on OSM and hopefully will be able to put aside more time to learn and ask questions about this service. Thank you to those who have responded to my first diary, any help is greatly appreciated.

Again, a very brief entry but this afternoon I have been editing possible footpaths in Nepal's forest and surrounding areas. I have never previously had to look through dense forests on satellite imagery and trying to decipher where the paths are leading to was far more complicated than I envisaged. It also made me think that a lot of us take for granted delineated paths for pedestrians and motor vehicles that allows us to travel from A to B and B to A. In this area it comes to trying to locate these in the dense forestry makes you realise the task ahead for the emergency services within Nepal who have already had to face one challenge too many.

Thinking of all those affected once again.

Won't Be on the Road for a While

Posted by roadgeek99 on 12 May 2015 in English (English)

Recently, my bike had some problems. After one is fixed, another one pops up. Last night, my bike's rear wheel locked up while I was riding it on NE 78th Street in Hazel Dell. As a result, I couldn't pedal anymore. I had to walk for a long time (about 30 minutes) before I came home. Currently, my parents are checking out the problem on my bike. I don't own a car, so I can't do the work I want to do for OSM because the destinations I want are far away. (Sure, I do have a C-TRAN 10-ride punch card, but I don't want to waste it all). I'll still be doing some projects that are closer to my home. Until me bike is fixed, I won't be on the road for a while.
