Insomnia, and Cleaning Up Gas Stations

Posted by apm-wa on 4 November 2018 in English (English)

Insomnia hit last night for the first time in years. With nothing better to do I cleaned up gas stations in Turkmenistan, identified stations without numbers and placed FIXME tags on them, added data where I had collected it but not got around to updating the map. Is there some way of getting overpass turbo to count stations for me? When Ann and I started this project in 2015 there were very few gas stations mapped. There seem to be a lot more now, between our work and the work of other mappers here.

Hope to get back on the road next week to do some more exploring.

Here’s a slightly modified Wizard query that counts amenity=fuel (click through the warning):

And also one that avoids calling out to Nominatim:

Many thanks! It counts 152 gas stations. I think we had about a dozen when we started mapping in 2015. Nice to know we’ve made some progress! :-)
