On Vector Tiles 4 months ago

Hi Ilya! It was amazing to meet you in Milano!

So, the solution is to send outside people to outside websites, built with OpenStreetMap data, and starting to wreck our website into a fun place for mappers.

How will we do it? We don't have a web service based on OSM that is well known by the world. Would we put a banner or a link on the homepage recommending those services? Even for a mapper, calculate routes and search and find a place is something important. A small percentage of the mappers know about those websites and I feel it's frustrating if them can not see the potential of the data they insert on OSM.

For being simple and useful we have MapCat, and being that is not our thing. We can do better.

I really like the idea of a map builder tool, but if the argument of not being a MapCat is valid, we also can not be a map builder tool, because QGIS, uMap and Mapbox Studio has similar features.


Not Yours, OpenStreetMap 6 months ago

I mostly agree with you.

I don't consider that OSM has a free tagging system. If I tag the main road of my town as highway=my-prefered-road, probably someone would complain that it should be a highway=primary. Although we can input any value we want, it doesn't make it a free tagging system. We need to use the established values to make it useful for other people (it's totally different from free tagging flickr photos or blog posts). Paradoxically, we can propose to deprecate a tag and replace it by another, but we can't do a mechanical edit to update all the objects mapped with the deprecated tag. It makes most tag changes impossible. The tag proposals voting system is very strange as well... but in the end who decides which tags will be widely used are the software editors developers, and OSMF has not control over it too.

The Latin American community is very open to contributions, so if you have data from franchises and want to import it, you can do a proposal in our mailing lists or telegram groups.

Long Names of OpenStreetMap 9 months ago

Hi, Harry!!

We've added a filter in OSMCha to get features with very long names:

Thanks, Mateus!

About the changeset comments... This was supported by some members of the community:

Soon, I'll improve it to give more options to the users. Right now, if you don't want that OSMCha post comments to the changesets that you are reviewing, when signing up to OSMCha, don't give permissions to "modify the map".

@Zverik No, the tag changes summary runs in the frontend when the page is rendered, but it's a good idea to identify some patterns and convert it on alerts.

Hi Clifford,

Thanks for the idea! Another user has already set up a bot to send messages welcoming new contributors in Brazil.

Metro Mapping Proposal (and what's wrong with proposals) 12 months ago

Sorry to not give the attention this proposal deserves, Ilya... I've fixed the Brasilia subway network using your validator and I'm planning to work on some other networks in Brasil.

I would suggest you to improve the first diagram, that shows how to map a station with all its elements (entrances, stop_area, platforms, rail line, etc). Maybe mapping a station on a not crowded area will make it easier to understand the proposal.
