Thank you for your project and writeup !

Trend of OSM Objects Edited with focus on Organized editing about 1 month ago

Thank you PierZen for compiling and sharing thoses stats !

Generalize OSM tagging model awareness and usage about 2 months ago

Good writeup, merci !

I fully endorse Data Items, I’ve tried pushing their usage a bit, but was met with pushback by some (mainly one) contributors.

Here’s to hoping that they take off like they should !

Create perfect bike route using BRouter and Strava heatmaps 3 months ago

Forgot about bicycle=dismount, which may be more adapted here. Thanks !

Create perfect bike route using BRouter and Strava heatmaps 3 months ago

IMHO, this is problem with BRouter If I look at way, it is clearly marked as “bicycle=no”. Not sure why BRouter is routing through here.

Because bicycle=no means that you can’t ride the bicycle there, not that you can’t have a pushed or carried bicycle there.

In this case, the profile used in Brouter is for mountain bikes, so carrying the bike is not unheard of. This profile also allows specifying whether bicycle=no path are taken with the “StrictNOBicycleaccess” variable.

Most routers route through stairs for example with a high penalty to avoid a longer detours, as a lot of users can carry the bike. As not all can, it should be customizable.

Thanks for sharing !

UX/UI Concept: Your Business on the Map over 1 year ago

Pretty much agree with everyone above. The intention is good, the workflow is quick and to the point, but I sadly think it will provide the expected effect.

cleaning up after a task manager task almost 2 years ago

Thank you for this write-up and fixes !

Created location on osm, but it's showing up in Instagram almost 2 years ago

I assume you mean it is not showing up in Instagram’s map ?

That’s because data (through the Mapbox map platform) are refreshed only after some time. Be patient and it’ll come :)

Boiserie Le Creff almost 2 years ago

Bonjour, les notes OpenStreetMap sont plus adaptées si vous souhaitez référencer votre commerce :

Ou encore mieux, n’hésitez pas à créer votre compte et contribuer, c’est assez rapide :)

To name or not to name ... about 2 years ago

it can be argued that they shouldn’t have individual names

On the other hand I don’t think larger parts of the community are actually uncomfortable with adding a name tag to a McDonald’s and I would speculate that this is what in common usage would be considered its name

You’re right, but it looks like your opinion (and therefore suggestion) seem clear to me with this wording.

Not a huge deal, it’s just that this issue has and still cost me (and surely others) a lot of contributor time to remove/fix names that are only brands.

Anyway thank you for the data !

To name or not to name ... about 2 years ago

Thank you for your analysis !

I see that you suggest, with the fast-food example, to use the brand name as the name=*. Wouldn’t the name used in the chain’s website, bills, internal and communication be better suited ?

I’m of the opinion (and the Osmose QA project) that names should be in most part unique. Outside OSM, that’s precisely the goal of most names : to differentiate things/persons.

Train Route Relations about 2 years ago

To be throrough, it would be best to map each variant. But if it takes too long for the time you have available, you can start with the longest (A-F) segment, that will help anyway.

Maybe just don’t specify interval on the longest (A-F) segment, as it does not run every 60 minutes.

You can link to the timetable with the website=* tag.

GSoC 2021 Final Report for OpeningHoursEvaluator about 2 years ago

Thank you for this tool and presentation. I hope you had a good time too :)

simplifying reception of the OSMWeekly newsletter about 2 years ago

Nice script and workaround, thanks for sharing !

since every item contains links to pictures

Some RSS readers have a “low-bandwidth” mode where the images are not loaded, like TinyTinyRss. Maybe that would fit your needs ?

A few words on the OSMF attribution guidelines over 2 years ago

Thank you for this thorough analysis ! I hope to see the day where OSM contributors will be directly credited through Mapbox widgets on huge social websites ! But with the substential rules of the “10000 square meters”, I think the status-quo will remain sadly.

An Automated Approach to Identifying Corporate Editing Activity over 2 years ago

Nice study, thank you for sharing your results even before the SotM !

Granting permission regarding Kira Maps over 2 years ago

Hi, I added a page in the wiki to help other mapper discover this data source. Feel free to add or edit information on there if necessary.

Have a good day !

Granting permission regarding Kira Maps over 2 years ago

Hello, that’s wonderful, thank you ! I would suggest putting this authorization in the wiki, it’s best suited for such things. I can do that myself if you are not familiar with the wiki.

However I’m still unsure as to what is in those map tiles, their company is about (their website seems down), and I couldn’t use the imagery mentionned in your changesets; the key seems revoked.

Maybe you could also add an example screenshot of the map tiles and the process to obtain access to them for other mappers ?

Granting permission regarding Kira Maps over 2 years ago

Hi, lalolan response was to help you, Kira, and the community. Kira doesn’t want to share its data with commercial users and that’s their right. OSM allows commercial users. Integrating data against the producer’s (Kira) would be harmful to everyone.

We understand that you are willing to help OSM with that data, but sadly this way seems not possible at this moment.

Maybe you could explain that as a lot of opensource projects, OSM do allow commercial use, and ask them to allow it too ?
