Holiday reflections on OpenStreetMap 5 months ago

Ah, forgot one, the weekly news one, I now use that for keeping up to date with OSM and ignore everything else

Holiday reflections on OpenStreetMap 5 months ago

"We don’t know if these people are enjoying or recoiling from these discussions, or totally ignoring them."

recoiling/ignoring would be my guess

I gave up keeping up with the mailing lists a year ago but stayed subscribed. One day recently I went back and started reading. I got through 2 months worth before I gave up.

The high volume lists are, by and large, toxic

As a result, I've unsubscribed from every single one, bar my local one

A year of edits with OSM Streak 6 months ago

This is excellent!

Approaching 1 million opening hours 7 months ago

It would be interesting to line up the release date of streetcomplete & maps.me with this to see if there has been a spike due to either app

Updating Blarney... about 1 year ago

Fair play (from Galway)

Another great interview, thanks escada

Your OpenStreetMap Story about 2 years ago

Ha! That is cool

Easily map individual parking spaces using the terracer plugin in JOSM about 2 years ago

not dismissing your work, but I think my way is easier and a lot more in line with the norm

Map the whole parking area as amenity=parking

Thats it. 1 polygon/closed way

If I know the info, I will add capacity, operator etc

I'm not sure I see any benefit in mapping spaces to this level of detail (and I'm a lover of micromapping)

One major downside is the visual clutter it would create due to the amount of Parking icons appearing on the map

Is there possibility to retag addr:housenumbers without european scheme? (updated) about 2 years ago

Is that not achieved by using the country boundaries (relations)?

JOSM and Me... (DeBigC) about 2 years ago

About the only thing I use iD for is mapping turn restrictions. It makes it sooo easy.

For everything else I use josm but that's the to say it couldn't be improved or doesn't have "quirks" of its own

The city of Chandigarh is taking a very good shape on OSM. over 2 years ago

thats some nice mapping, nice work!

Mapper in the Spotlight: dkiselev (Russia) over 2 years ago

"Most difficult part of OSM is the "nobody needs that" approach on tagging and talk mailing lists. Guys, just think, If somebody uses a mailing list, which is pain by itself, to ask you what is the best approach to map a thing, there is a demand for that kind of things to be mapped."

I like your logic

My christmas gift for the OSM Community - JOSM Keyboard Shortcuts Cheat Sheet 300 DPI over 2 years ago

You lost me at command line :P

From Mapper to Validator to Judge over 2 years ago

@BushmanK no we havent gotten to that stage yet.

Right now we are working on completing as much of the validation work before our next trip in Feb.

One of the goals during the in-person training will be the use of KeepRight, OSMI, Overpass etc for further improvement of the data.

This validation sprint is more focused on making sure the task requirements have been met for each tile to as high a standard as possible.

I would love to load up all the additional validation tools as part of this sprint, however I think it would be too burdensome at this stage

Belgian Mapper of the Month: Polyglot over 2 years ago
