OSMCha News - February/2018

Posted by wille on 9 February 2018 in English (English)

Hello! We just released a new version of OSMCha and we have some new features.

Changeset comments

Based off user feedback, we’ve made changeset comments from OSMCha more flexible.

discussions tab

You can choose to post comments before or after review the changeset, or not at all. You can also set comment templates, so you will have a base text that you can improve before posting. The Review Comment Templates can be edited in your OSMCha user page. We are working to improve this feature, adding the possibility to switch to the discussions tab right after the review is set.

user page

New Location filter

Now we have a new Location filter field. You can define your area of interest by searching for a place:

search place for location field

or drawing a polygon on the map:

draw polygon for location field

The Bounding Box (BBox) filter field is yet available. You can use the BBox size bound in combination with the Location or Bounding Box fields. For example, if you set the BBox size bound to 3, the search will return only changesets whose bbox area is not bigger than 3 times the area of the bbox or location geometry you set on your filter. That way you exclude very large edits that were not restricted to your area of interest.

Map style toogle

We fixed an old bug in the map style toggle. Now you can switch freely between the satellite, streets and dark imagery layers in the changeset visualization.

Roadmap and contact

We have published a roadmap for OSMCha. Do you have some new ideas for OSMCha? You can participate in the OSMCha development by subscribing to our mailing list or opening an issue or pull request in our repository.

Thank you, Amisha and Tridip for the support in this release!

Wonderful, the bbox is one of my most used filters and searching makes it so much more convenient. Thank you Wille, Amisha and Tridip!
