Why Search and Rescue Organizations Must Map Out Cellular Phone Towers in OpenStreetMap almost 2 years ago

"must of tried" -> "must have tried"; "might of lived" -> "might have lived" "could of been saved" -> "could have been saved"

Greasemonkey, or how to embed OSM into almost 2 years ago

in the meantime, geocaching moved to osm as the default (mapquest open tiles), then moved back to google maps when mapquest open tiles disappeared. anybody got a snippet for firefox to use osm again ? google maps... are lacking any and every useful detail.

OSM loves Mapillary about 2 years ago

typo - "pones clock" :)

Retrieving notes with a Perl script over 2 years ago

thanks, i was aware of the note feeds and was following them myself - but i don't think they allow saving notes to gpx for usage on a gps, do they ?

Processing GPS traces from a Garmin GLO. almost 3 years ago

beware - if you do full run on a roundabout or plot a parking lot, gpsbabel will drop more data than needed with the distance option... you can see some discussion here :

after line 121

COFFEEDEX & the single-tag revolution over 3 years ago

hopefully this is an attempt at specialised editors and starting a discussion, not a serious intent :)

otherwise i'd like to map beer prices. and bread prices in supermarkets. and availability or alcoholic drinks. and room prices in hotels. oh, and their availability, too...

"For Google's (not) a Jolly Good Fellow!" over 5 years ago

Experience almost 7 years ago

wanted to comment on "they did search at my flat as well" part - don't these things require a court order anymore ?

and it would be nice to try to bring this to some larger media outlet - bbc did run some stories on osm - maybe Maggie Shiels wants to pick this up ( or whoever was involved with (phrase it like "help haiti earthquake relief, get arrested in england" or something ;) ) - surely writing this experience in a nice way might attract other media as well.
