Finbar1, I would guess that the focus of this project is to focus on problematic changesets/edits, not data quality as such.
Mikel, that’s a great insight, on publishing “what didn’t make it through”.
Flagging problems (automatic or semi-automatic) frees up the contributor time and allows to fix the problems sooner.
In the past, there have been projects that check routing between known destinations - for example, Berlin -> Paris. If the routed distance differs from the expected one by more than some threshold (or even fails completely), it is flagged for review.
The images have gone missing here… Can they be restored?
“must of tried” -> “must have tried”;
“might of lived” -> “might have lived”
“could of been saved” -> “could have been saved”
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.
typo - “pones clock” :)
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 ?
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 : http://comments.gmane.org/gmane.comp.hardware.gps.gpsbabel.general/6395
as you can guess, such traces are not that good for osm.
https://lists.openstreetmap.org/pipermail/talk-lv/2011-July/003040.html suggests a simple fix - in that version of gpsbabel, adding
after line 121
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…
just to clarify… everybody appreciates contributions, but we are very cautious about copyright. google does not play friendly with us - well, too bad, we have to do without them.
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 (http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/8305924.stm) or whoever was involved with http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/8517057.stm (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.
btw, using first wms url in josm, imagery seems to be ~ 50m off to the south for the region i'm interested in. would anybody be interested in a report about that ?
excellent, this even covers some small areas in latvia
maybe the company plans to expand in europe ? :)
