Hello OSM World

Posted by Leeturtle on 27 November 2015 in English.

Hi everybody,

I’m a newcomer enthusiast focused mainly in editing in Tirana (Albania) and Elbasan (Albania). It seems like there is a greater need for projects like OSM in Albania since foreigners that visit the country, but also locals find it hard to find directions to move around cities.

I really hope to make the first steps for the OMS community in Albania in order to grow the project even more.

Cheers,

Hello, and welcome to OSM!

A did a bit of reasearch whether there are any local OSM related channels, maybe on OSM forums or OSM mailinglists … but nothing special for Albania … Do you already have other ways how to get in contact with other mappers around you?

Greets, Stephan

Indeed there is not much activity related to Albania on OSM, but there is a community hosted at Open Labs Hackerspace in Tirana working hard to initiate and build the Albanian OSM community. @Xhendris (https://www.openstreetmap.org/user/Xhendris) is one of the members of the team actually initiating OSM meetups. Have a look here: http://openlabs.cc/openstreetmap-takim-i-hapur-1/. If you have any tips on community building for Albania, as an experienced user, please let me know.

Pascal Neis offers a good service to find active people around you: http://resultmaps.neis-one.org/oooc?zoom=9&lat=41.16361&lon=20.21811&layers=B00TFFFFFT The biggest Albanian community seems to be in Tirana. You could maybe ask Lambertus if it’s possible to open an users:Albania channel http://forum.openstreetmap.org/profile.php?id=2

Have fun mapping
