Take a right on “Too Damn Far Rd” 5 months ago

By that I mean: are you going to keep running this? Will you work with the OSMCha team to flag changesets that introduce new low-quality data?

Take a right on “Too Damn Far Rd” 5 months ago

This is really interesting. How are you applying this work?

Great walkthrough! Thanks for writing it up.

TIGER node/way burndown 6 months ago

By "sane actions" you mean "delete everything and remap"?

TIGER node/way burndown 6 months ago

There's plenty of TIGER data that is fine as-is, and this measure won't take that into account. Maybe a bit of spatial analysis could be done to mark TIGER nodes and ways as "touched" if other activity was made in the immediate vicinity (within a few dozen meters)?

Ground Zero of ARPANet, Grandfather of the Internet (OSM's Platform) 12 months ago

The binary translates to ARPANET.

For the newbies: Let us map using StreetComplete about 1 year ago

StreetComplete is great, but it was not developed by Mapzen. It simply uses Mapzen vector tiles for display.

I reverted it with the JOSM Reverter plugin and uploaded it in

Another walking site using OSM over 1 year ago

I suggest you use their contact or forum pages to politely ask them to add proper attribution.

The Magic MapRoulette Machine about 4 years ago

This is awesome, Martijn! Super easy way to get started and will be really helpful for mapping parties.

Attribution and all that (a rant) almost 5 years ago

My guess is that OSM does a horrible job leading by example. There's no easily-accessible or discoverable (via a Google search) tutorial describing how to use the popular map javascript APIs.

We could also do a better job seeking out the authors of tutorials that get used currently to make sure their tutorials follow the rules.

... or we could do a better job at recruiting and keeping mappers. Personally, I don't think attribution on a map is a great way to do that.

Why so many old, unresolved bugs in Mapnik? over 5 years ago

I will volunteer for the OSM bug posse but I refuse to volunteer to fix stylesheet bugs.

Making OSM data mor compact over 5 years ago

Removing data simply because you think it takes up too much space is "mapping for the renderer" and we don't want to do that. Make the data accurate and post-process it if you feel it's taking up too much space.

What a fantastic State of the Map US over 5 years ago

Good to see you Mikel! This is an excellent reminder of all the stuff we talked about. Thanks for the great summary!

Removed. almost 6 years ago

We don't need a grant to do it, we need people to propose concrete changes, make them, and submit pull requests. The code is right here.

If, like me, you think that's a big step, you should bring the topic up on the dev@ or rails-dev@ mailing lists. It's been talked about several times before, but perhaps it would be healthy to mention again.

Can someone explain this routing problem? about 6 years ago

Looks like it's fixed now.
