Hi PlaneMad,

German mappers who do a lot of reviewing complain that its changeset always only contain one changed object. See the discussion at Githug and on the German forum.

Best regards


This Is How To Create Your Own Nest In Pokemon GO With A Free Tool Called “Open Street Map” about 1 year ago

Hi -karlos-,

thank you for the link.

You could use the Overpass queries given in my entry in the German OSM Blog to search for recently created/modified parks.

Best regards

Kommentar zu woodpecks letztem Kommentar (1. und 2. Absatz):

Die Wikipedia hat eine Regel, die sich Störe Wikipedia nicht, um etwas zu beweisen nennt und umschreibt die Gründe für die Ungleichbehandlung durch Moderatoren ganz gut.

Updated Contributor Statistics over 1 year ago

@Zverik Vespucci and Pushpin are editors. You can only use them for editing. If you install them, you usually know what OSM is.

OsmAnd hides the editing feature in a plugin which has to be activated.

Improvement of OSM data quality using osmlint and to-fix over 1 year ago

The community along with the data team at Mapbox has helped cleanup many thousands of issues in the last 2 years.

Well, that's not the truth. A few weeks ago I counted all changeset at the changeset planet dump (2016-08-29) which contain the string "#to-fix". I found 363,799 changesets with this string and calculated the number of changesets with this string for each OSM user.

Only 136 users (8 are sockpuppets used for imports) uploaded these changesets. 356,143 (97.0 %) of these changeset have been uploaded by Mapbox employees. I only checked the 84 accounts which had the most to-fix changesets if they are Mapbox employees. The 52 other accounts only have uploaded 100 changesets in total.

OSM Awards 2016 – Entscheidungshilfe over 1 year ago

Hallo Meillo,

ich habe es in einem Kommentar zur englischen Version dieses Blogbeitrags gestern geschrieben und schreibe es gerne noch einmal: Es sieht demokratisch aus, ist es aber nicht. Zwar gab es die Vorschlagsphase, aber die endgültige Auswahl oblag einigen Leuten aus dem OSMF-Vorstand (nicht alle Mitglieder) und der SotM Working Group.

Viele Grüße


OSM Awards–Decision Guidance over 1 year ago

Hi althio,

althio wrote:

Finally: "Why do the awards not have a system with rounds? During the first round, all mappers (people with OSM account) could suggest candidates and the descriptive texts". Either I miss something obvious you are unhappy with... but this is exactly how the whole affair happened. Candidates were freely submitted by anyone with with an OSM account and you could even vote for a first round. As stated in the announcement of OSM Awards you quoted:

Yes, there was a first round but it was not democratic. See following qoute of an email you linked

The voting is preliminary: it will help us to decide which nominees would go into the "short list" to be voted on later.

This means that a board (not the board) of people decided who is eligible in final round. That's what I criticise.

Best regards


Translating places with CityNamer + Bots over 1 year ago

I agree with BushmanK and want to point out that there is still a map which automatically transcribes non-Latin characters into Latin (and abbreviates common suffixes like "street", "Straße", "улица").

Please discuss your tool with the OpenStreetMap community on the Talk mailing list before your first upload of a changeset using this tool!

Adding house numbers of one town from cadastre to OSM and survey verification over 1 year ago

You should buy a hybrid glove. I use them for mapping and professional surveying (as a surveyor).

Reviewing Turn restrictions in Germany using Mapillary over 1 year ago

U-Turns are forbidden at road crossing Borsigstraße/Heilbronner Str. in Stuttgart if you come from Friedrichswahl because there is a restricted area painted on the street.

That's why u-turns are prohibited here but allowed here (coming from Plieningen doing a u-turn back to Plieningen). There is a no-passing line (road centre marking without gaps) painted after the traffic island at node 1.

Turn restrictions can be implicit in Germany.

Introducing OpenStreetView over 1 year ago

Does/Will OSV offer a dump of all its photos available for download via HTTP or Torrent (like the OSM planet dump)? Or is it a data grave similar to Mapillary? (I have read at your blogpost that I can remove my data, but I want to get all photos of OSV) :-))

FOSSGIS-Konferenz 2016 over 1 year ago

imagico schrieb:

Dass die Vorträge interessant und ein recht vielfältiger Mix waren dem kann ich zustimmen - wenngleich wie üblich recht wenig zu praktischen Mapping-Themen dabei war.

Aus dem Themenbereich war auch kaum etwas eingereicht worden. Vielleicht einfach das Konferenz-unter-der-Woche-Problem?

imagico schrieb:

Ich denke aber, dass von OSM-Seite das Format durchaus eine Menge Verbesserungspotential hat. Sowohl was dem OSM-Sonntag betrifft (der sowohl von den Räumlichkeiten als auch von der Programmgestaltung meiner Meinung nach nicht ganz ideal war - gab zu wenig Raum für vertiefende Gespräche und Diskussionen) […]

Möchtest du das ein wenig genauer erläutern? Hättest du dir andere Programmpunkte und mehr Raum für Diskussionen gewünscht?

Mapping with OSM about 2 years ago

The JOSM interface is extremely user-friendly and easy-to-use.

Usually people claim the opposite. Are you used to use GIS or CAD software or other drawing tools?

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

JOSM is a fast editor if you have your left hand at the keyboard (mainly A and S key but also X, Q, W and B) and the right hand at your mouse. JOSM is a veryyyyy slow editor if you always use the mouse to switch between drawing and selection mode instead of typing S/A.

Erster Außeneinsatz 2016 about 2 years ago

Ich selbst zeichne nur noch selten von Luftbildern Gebäude ab, weil mir das Rausgehen mehr Spaß bereitet. Deshalb bin ich dazu übergegangen, Hausnummern nur als lose Nodes zu mappen, wenn es noch keine Gebäude gibt (zum Abmalen braucht man keine Ortskunde). Die setze ich dann mit Vespucci draußen. Dieser schlägt einem sogar oft passende Hausnummern vor (der Button mit dem Hausnummern-Icon).

Unter einer gewissen Temperatur braucht man dazu Handschuhe wie diese: Ich kaufe sie aber meist auf dem Weihnachtsmarkt. Als ich noch als Vermesser gearbeitet habe, hielt ein Paar meist einen Winter, danach war es verschlissen/kaputt. Klettverschlüsse sind hier Knöpfen zur Befestigung der Fingerkuppenkappe vorzuziehen.

Idea of issue tracker for tagging scheme about 2 years ago

I mostly agree with @Sanderd17's posting.

I think we do not need such a platform. It will just spread discussion and data users which are not familiar with OSM will think that their posting will make all mappers to change their tagging behaviour. But OSM is different. YOU CAN TAG WHAT YOU WANT.

BushmanK worte:

I am aware of difference between software development and OSM tags you've mentioned. However, there are certain mechanisms in OSM, which depend on "community approval" (even if it's not about formal proposal procedure). To get into editor presets, translations, Wiki, converters and so on, tag should be supported by developers of editors and converters, by translators, by Wiki editors.

If you want to deprecate a tag, you have to make all relevant data users (mainly renderers and routing engines) to drop support of that tag (i.e. if you want to weaken a specific waterway tag, you have to make OpenSeaMap drop its support).

Proposals and all that discussion stuff may express that some people think that a tag is good/bad/should be called "deprecated".

I hope, you already know this OSM wiki template and its users.

Wie gut sind die Öffnungszeiten in meinem "Revier" erfasst? over 2 years ago

Hallo zarl,

mittlerweile verwende ich Overpass QL statt Overpass XML für meine Abfragen. Hier mal die obige Abfrage in Overpass QL:

out body;
out skel qt;
        { color:red; fill-color:red }

        { color:blue; fill-color:blue; }

Wenn du noch das Datum der letzten Änderung abfragen willst, musst du vor dem ({{bbox}}) noch ein (changed:"2012-09-14T07:00:00Z") einfügen. Siehe dazu auch die Doku im Wiki.
