Another idea for future imports of buildings over 2 years ago

Good idea. Kind of like selecting two nodes on a street plus all the buildings you want to align with the street and then “Orthogonalize Shape” (Q in JOSM).

അങ്കണവാടി എങ്ങനെ മാപ്പിൽ ചേർക്കാം? over 2 years ago

Very interesting. I was not aware of the Anganwadi network and googled it. It’s nice that you have an Integrated Child Development Program. All countries should have such a program.Certainly, getting them all on the map is a great idea.

Updating the North Carolina Mountains-to-Sea Trail over 2 years ago

Trails are one of OSM’s best assets. I’ve found strava imagery very helpful when looking for problems. By

Nice project, it’s always nice when a group of mappers can be encouraged to work together. I imagine new friends were made.

You’ve inspired me to give it a try. Thank you.

Overhaul of the Turkmenistan municipalities in the OSM database over 2 years ago

It’s I retesting to think about the impact our mapping will have on a place.

Editing Openstreetmap in JOSM with Strava Layer High Resolution Enabled almost 3 years ago

The detail in https://nuxx.net/blog/2020/05/24/high-resolution-strava-global-heatmap-in-josm/ is great. The only comment I’d make is that you don’t have to have a paid strava account. I use the free account. The chrome extension process by https://www.openstreetmap.org/user/erickdeoliveiraleal is slightly better because you don’t have to re-enter cookies manually when they are changed. (at least that’s my experience since 6/2/20

Editing Openstreetmap in JOSM with Strava Layer High Resolution Enabled almost 3 years ago

I was finally able to get the chrome extension to work for me. Some of my problem was being unfamiliar with chrome extensions. The explanatiion at https://github.com/janosrusiczki/strava-heatmap-to-osm-background/issues/2 was very helpful. Thanks for posting. I was waiting for someone like you to come up with a solution.

Editing Openstreetmap in JOSM with Strava Layer High Resolution Enabled almost 3 years ago

Hi, thanks for describing your process. I was unable to make it work for me and got a chrome extension error warning. I was logged into strava at the time.

chrome.browserAction.onClicked.addListener(function(tab) { getCookies(copyURLToClipboard) });

My old way to get strava in JOSM was to copy cookies, but several weeks ago strava changed and I was no longer able to get them from the developer tools.

Can you confirm that your process is currently working? I really need strava to help align imagery.

Targeted Cleanup with Overpass Turbo Queries almost 3 years ago

To avoid having to resolve conflicts, try selecting the road you want to delete and use the “Download along” plug-in” which will download everything necessary to prevent the conflicts.

Very nice presentation. I especially like the comments by PG

2019 Washington State, US New User Report about 3 years ago

Very interesting. I should try to break the compulsive mapping habit and spend some time encouraging a few newbies. Interaction between users in Massachusetts if minimal.

Wikidata+OSM at State of the Map 2019 and WikidataCon 2019 over 3 years ago

Very interesting presentation. I’ll spend some time trying to wrap my head around all this informaiton. I’ll give it a shot in my town.

If it looks like an import, gets permission like an import, and organizes like an import, then it probably is an import…...Or is it? over 3 years ago

Second try and the TMS worked. Mapped most of one square and left comment. Interesting that you have neighborhoods. In Massachusetts we usually surround large areas as residential similar to how you would identify a wooded area. It’s nice that you have the detail.

Nice description. I tried going to the task manager to participate but could not get the Spartanburg Subdivisions url to work. I copied it and pasted it into a new JOSM TMS window under imagery preferences but the url was not recognized. The exact text I copied was https://api.mapbox.com/styles/v1/bikeoid/cjyrvgqgw009q1cohi1bbshfe/tiles/256/{z}/{x}/{y}@2x?access_token=pk.eyJ1IjoiYmlrZW9pZCIsImEiOiJTSW9oVHA0In0.4xG7icLNIAIArqh6xGpOOg If you know what went wrong I’d give it another try.

Thanks, I love to see updates to the display of the map.

Very nice presentation. Even though I don’t map for the renderer, I only map what does render. I like your interim solutions.
