Google Summer of Code 2018 GTFS Integration Tool Summary 23 days ago

This looks really cool!

How does this deal with cases where the GTFS only has one centroid for the stop point and OSM has all the individual platforms and stop positions mapped?

Is there any Ubuntu-specific stuff in it, or should it run on anything that runs Django and postgis?

I love the data bulletin idea too, that's so cool! Will you make it a regular thing?

What is an import? 5 months ago

I think it's very interesting that the import guidelines don’t actually define what the term means.

Boundaries are one of the few things we have in OSM that you can't collect on the ground - how are you collecting them? Boundary markers?

Hi everyone! This seems to have fallen asleep. Mikel, if you'd agree to extend this again to the 1st of March, I'll match your pledge.

OSMF Board election manifesto 10 months ago

Hello Paul,

You are, rightly, campaigning based on your good results from your work on the board. You are a voice for protecting mappers, and conserve things as they are.

You outline a few areas where you see the need for more regulation. Can you maybe outline how you think your proposals in those area could look?

Besides keeping the machine running smoothly, do you see new directions which the OSMF should explore?

Thank you for your answers, and good luck.

Announcing my candidacy for OSMF Board Elections 2017 10 months ago

Hello David,

in a way that ensures that remote and local mappers are assisted directly in our mapping tools, rather than having the output of an algorithm imported widescale without their direct involvement in the process.

That's very interesting. Considering that the OSMF voters would tend to be passionate craft mappers, can you talk more about how you see this working?

Thank you for your answers, and good luck.

Seeking your support for OSMF Board Membership 10 months ago

Hello Heather,

Your manifesto brings up good questions, which you would be expected to answer as a board member. What are your ideas on how we could achieve the goals you would like the OSMF to pursue?

You talk about your growing engagement and contributions, but your mapping is only casual. You've only mapped four days this year. Isn't creating the map an essential experience to have to be a competent board member?

Thank you for your answers and good luck.

For what it’s worth, the French style draws the lines on tennis courts and football fields automatically along the rectangle, e.g. http://tile.openstreetmap.fr/?zoom=19&lat=49.63175&lon=6.11431&layers=B000000FFFFFF

DigitalGlobe Satellite Imagery Launch for OpenStreetMap over 1 year ago

Thank you DigitalGlobe!

The premium imagery is great; it covers places in Ireland that weren't well covered by bing, or very badly. For example, Inishtrahull, off the coast of Donegal. It's also great to then georeference the old gsgs map

Welcome, and happy mapping!

Preparing accurate history and caching changesets over 1 year ago

How cool. SNS can’t be exposed externally directly, but it can be used to trigger actions, e.g. push notifications, email, calls to another trigger script...

Congratulations!

https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Editor_usage_stats shows that Potlatch still has a big bunch of users, which is a testament to its quality. Thank you for your work on it.
