Support for OLC would indeed be awesome!
Very cool! Any plans to do this for other cities as well?
When is the Android app going to drop proprietary dependencies, though? That’s the only thing stopping me from using either OSC or Mapillary at the moment.
If Google incorporates OSM data, why would a regular user even care about contributing to a small project? Might as well just fix Google itself, which is what we’d all be doing. No thanks.
Maps.me is beneficial to OSM not simply because of the attribution, but also because it allows users to directly improve a map that can be used and reused by all of us.
There’s a lot to unpack here but I’ll just focus on the licensing: there is no way I’m going to contribute to some permissively licensed project that is just going to get sucked in by Google and the rest of Silicon Valley. If I dedicate time and effort into this, I want it to be perpetually free for all reusers down the line.
You are very wrong when you say we are hurt more than they are. Companies need to waste money on Google/Bing/TomTom maps to do what need to do; while we lose nothing since time has shown we can grow comfortably without the occasional massive imports (which are often rolled back anyway because of quality issues).
Welcome! Feel free to ask questions.
Nice! Can’t wait for more of these.
Show de bola! Parabéns pelo trabalho
Nice work, fellow vegan! 🌱
Very nice! Also worthy of mention is the key [wikimedia_commons](https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:wikimedia_commons).
By the way, do you know of https://tools.wmflabs.org/fist/fist.php ? Hopefully it has free sources P4C can use.
If it’s protected by law, perhaps something like boundary=protected_area could apply too?
Great! Thanks for this. Working on some of them.
Good job, folks! Don’t forget to push your Vespucci releases to F-Droid as well :)
@Vincent: The first option doesn’t solve the fundamental problem, which is the difficulty of spotting and reverting edits in a semi-automated fashion. Wikipedia does this very well, and we’ll need to improve our tools to make this process easier, possibly inspired by their efforts.
Mi tute konsentas pri la ujigado, kaj ne kontraŭas al la aliaj menciaĵoj.
Nice! I hope to see more countries added soon :)
I guess what we need is some robust vandalism-fighting mechanism like Wikipedia has.
Parabéns pelo trabalho! Vou usar isso para ajudar botar essas cidades no mapa :)
