Iceland is definitely on our wishlist.

Swaziland, Zimbabwe and South Africa entered over 7 years ago

We uploaded about 6000 images of the trip to Mapillary.

After spending mucht time behind a desk myself we are now realizing a 30 years old dream.

Editing of Zambia and Botswana completed over 7 years ago

Hi,

The trip from the Netherlands to South Africa took us about 14 months.

I have many pictures I could upload, but I didn’t find out how I can upload images that are on PC.

Regards,

Jan

OpenPoiMap - aka Taglocator over 7 years ago

Works like a charm!

OpenPoiMap - aka Taglocator over 7 years ago

It is a very useful and intuitive tool indeed! Do you think it would be possible to show POI’s at lower zoom levels if the POI density is low? For example can I see all campings in Ethiopia in one go (similar to http://waypointer.info/)?

Thanks!

An idea for making it easier to link external data to OSM over 7 years ago

A camping that is referred to in for example iOverlander would need an OSM relation anyhow to store information about amenities available at the campsite. See here.

The relation ID could be used for external reference. I would expect that it is more stable than the object ID. For example if two campings merge they would keep the relation ID of one of them (which reflects the real situation).
