tl:dr In Thüringen fehlen noch etwa 5% also etwa 100 milestones (Meine Schätzung der Gesamtzahlen war nicht ganz korrekt, sonst wären es 2,5%)

Ich beschränke ab 2019 die Abfragen auf milestones, die Teil einer Autobahn sind. Harte Gründe kann ich da nicht dafür vorbringen, halte ich einfach für sinnvoller (falls mir wer vor den Karren scheissen mag, dass ich die Statistik zugunsten Thüringen verfälsche: auch ohne Autobahn sind alle anderen Bundesländer zahlenmässig sehr weit weg und prozentual sogar ein richtiges Desaster ;))

Ich habe die partiell doch recht grosse Abnahme zu 2018 jetzt nicht geprüft, eine mögliche Fehlerquelle wären neben die Autobahn gemalte milestones.

Das wiki sagt:

Setze einen Punkt direkt auf den Weg der den Verkehrsweg darstellt

andere “Fehlerquelle” ist natürlich, dass milestones an Bundesstraßen etc. jetzt rausfallen. Wers rausfinden mag, Link ist oben und anderer Link zum Vergleich hier unten.

Wer die Links zu aktuellen “Ganz”-Zahlen haben möchte, findet diese in der History.

Stonebridge Park, Nottingham — Notable features

Stonebridge Road is an otherwise unnoteworthy road in Nottingham NG3. It came to my attention back in April 2016 when I tried to get some opendata from the local GIS department. I pointed out that Central Government had told the Ordnance Survey to share their data publically (giving all relevant links) but, in spite of them also committing themselves to sharing public data, the GIS dept said the

Stonebridge Road is an otherwise unnoteworthy road in Nottingham NG3. It came to my attention back in April 2016 when I tried to get some opendata from the local GIS department. I pointed out that Central Government had told the Ordnance Survey to share their data publically (giving all relevant links) but, in spite of them also committing themselves to sharing public data, the GIS dept said they “would not be permitted by Ordnance Survey as this would basically be providing people with a copy of their product”. The triangle of what is now known as “Stonebridge Park” thus remained a white spot until recently when finally we got some satellite imagery that could show it. Mostly (some houses are still not on those tiles).

Having spent March 21 mapping much of it here are a couple of features.

The estate was redeveloped as a Radburn Design in the 1970s from former Victorian housing and, whilst many of those 1970s houses were demolished in the 2010s, the street layout was largely kept. The council tried to make some improvements. Here are some of the new houses in Jersey Gardens:–

Jersey Gardens, Stonebridge Park

Only one of the former Victorian Houses (previously a Victorian School, now a Community Centre) has been kept:–

Bluebell Hill Community Centre

The Park features a City Farm (the only one that I am aware of in Nottingham) and, just north of that, 2 sets of graffiti murals have been kept largely intact for many years upon the sides of a set of garages:–

garage murals 1 garage murals 2

Council Design Code

I downloaded a set of public PDFs in 2016 from the council/Latham Architects. I cannot now re-find those links or whether they exist.

Purpose of the Design Code
The Design Code sets the standard for design and layout. The aim is to regenerate this part of the St Ann’s district of Nottingham by introducing a distinct urban character, and providing a high quality, coherent public realm.

Background
The St Ann’s area comprises mainly post-war development, based on the principles of the ‘Radburn’ community model, where priority is given to the motor car. Proposals to reverse the negative impact of the existing housing layout, in favour of a more traditional layout where houses front onto streets are central to this application.

Brief History/Issues
The ‘Stonebridge Park’ estate was built in line with Radburn† Planning principles in the early 1970’s. As a result the houses are ‘inverted’, with car access via back gardens and fronts facing onto communal space. Many of the houses have no proper entrance, no front garden and little private space. The flats are generally unpopular, due to their poor layout and poor build quality, inadequate thermal and sound insulation, and lack of clearly defined amenity space. In general terms, existing buildings do not relate well to open space and the public realm – there are numerous examples of blank gable end walls fronting areas of green space, often with prohibitive signage to discourage ball games, etc.

†Radburn – ‘the town for the motor age’ was created in ‘answer to the needs of modern society’ in the United States of America in 1929. Although forming the model for numerous housing estates throughout the UK, it has not proved to be a successful model in areas of social deprivation, where there is now much precedent for ‘de-radburnisation’.

The PDFs omit to point out that the City Architect of the 1970s notably said after retirement that there was graft at play between councillors & Wimpey (the firm that was given the contract to knock down vast areas of 100 year-old Nottingham suburbs & build replacements that, just 50 years later, are themselves being replaced).

I have noticed several instances where another contributor has modified entries I have made over the preceding months and years, without advising me. Having initiated a discussion with the reviser and received an explanation that I felt was inadequate, I provided further explanations and requested the reviser to reverse the changes that they had made, and that I would agree to taking the matters over which we disagree to an open forum, if there was still a disagreement.

At this time the revisions I disagree with have not been reverted, and I have heard nothing further from the reviser.

I can make the reversions myself, which will involve significant work, or I can choose to abandon OpenStreetMap altogether, on the basis that there is no effective protocol to protect my contributions from changes without notice or discussion.

I welcome comments from other contributors on the protocol for dealing such conflicts of opinion.

align=right

I met Julien after my SOTM talk in Milano last year. I was impressed by it on the spot, but unfortunately it required an imposm database setup instead of the osm2pgsql schema, which I can’t support yet for disk space reasons.

Julien was already thinking about porting his style to the osm2pgsql schema, and now this has indeed materialized, and I can finally offer his style as a base style choice. You can find the style in the “Countries” section in the style selection box, I’ve put it there as it uses French terms in several places, like “Gare” for train stations.

Right now I can only provide contour lines from the sample shapefile bundled with the styles Git repository, and some font sizes still seem to be a bit off in my installation, but we’ll probably be able to figure these things out pretty soon …

Well, it just keeps getting better, doesn’t it?

In the intro I pointed out what had kept me prevaricating & not surveying for 22 months.

Next was the discovery that OSMTracker v0.7 was utter tosh since it would not produce viable tracks on my phone.

Next was that in addition v0.7 also had most GPS missing from the photos, and that diary was a howTo Fix the Photos, putting GPS back into them.

Finally this diary sees me re-install OSMTracker v0.6.11 and go out tracking recently-built houses within Stonebridge Estate on March 21. There were a number of discoveries:–

  1. The Mpow 059 Bluetooth Headphones mostly seemed effective but could not cope with wind-noise (rumble).
     
    It blows a lot in Britain (one of the windiest places in the world) and low-pitched rumble from microphones is a deal-breaker if you work outdoors. The headphones were extremely comfortable, but the microphone was a teeny little hole with no easy means to apply a dead kitten to it. The wind was actually very modest on the day, but nevertheless there were occasions when I could not hear what I was saying in the recording. I’ve returned the headphones to Amazon, and have ordered a Jabra BlueParrott B450-XT Headset to replace them: Jabra BlueParrott B450-XT Headset  
  2. After discovering that OSMTracker v0.7 is actually OSM-does-not-track I checked out v0.6.11 more carefully. It is losing 42% of all photos.
      
    OSMTracker maintains a separate database of photos + voice-notes + GPS track (“track1”). The android smartphone also saves a copy of those photos within the standard camera location (2x). Having finished a track (or before) it is possible to “Export a GPX track” which also places JPG + 3GPP + GPX files within their own directory (“osmtracker/2019-03-21_10-34-15”) (now 3x the space). I checked out the number of jpegs saved by osmtracker cf the smartphone:
     
    → OSMTracker: 107 photos
    → Smartphone: 183 photos (42% extra)
     
  3. As best as I can tell OSMTracker is also losing some voice-notes. However I cannot quantify the extent of that problem.

What a bummer.

O Mapeador IgorEliezer Criou um Aplicativo chamado IBGE2JOSM para converter dados do IBGE para o Josm.

O Aplicativo que foi desenvolvido em Python faz a conversão de dados para o formato CSV e com esses arquivos você pode visualizar esses arquivos no JOSM.

Uma ferramente sem duvida nenhuma muito util para aqueles que contribui com o OSM e que sem duvida veio para somar aos esforços da comunidade.

O Aplicativo ele converte os dados do CNEFE - Cadastro Nacional de Endereços para Fins Estatísticos (IBGE: Censo 2010) que pode ser usado agora de forma mais dinâmica no Josm.

O programa só considera os endereços que foram cadastrados com coordenadas lat/lon na zona rural, portanto os endereços sem coordenadas são ignorados. Os endereços da zona urbana costumam não possuir coordenadas.

IBGEJOSM https://forum.openstreetmap.org/viewtopic.php?pid=741756#p741756

Requisitos

  • JOSM com o plugin OpenData
  • Python 3

. Instalação

Salve-o em qualquer local acessível. O programa não faz qualquer alteração no computador. Para desinstalá-lo, basta apagar o arquivo ibge2josm.py.

Mapper IgorEliezer has created an application called IBGE2JOSM to convert data from IBGE to Josm.

The Application that was developed in Python converts data to CSV format and with these files you can view these files in JOSM.

A tool without doubt very useful for those who contribute to the OSM and who undoubtedly came to add to the efforts of the community.

The application converts the data from CNEFE - National Register of Addresses for Statistical Purposes (IBGE: Census 2010) that can now be used more dynamically in Josm.

The program only considers addresses that have been registered with lat / lon coordinates in the rural zone, so addresses without coordinates are ignored. The addresses of the urban zone usually do not have coordinates.

IBGEJOSM https://forum.openstreetmap.org/viewtopic.php?pid=741756#p741756

Requirements

  • JOSM with the OpenData plugin
  • Python 3

. Installation

Save it in any accessible place. The program does not make any changes to the computer. To uninstall it, just delete the file ibge2josm.py.

Two More Highway Numbers, and Old Soviet Military Maps

A friend got me a set of Soviet military maps dating to the 1970s and 1980s, which are uncopyrighted and unlike Soviet military maps of foreign countries contain original cartographic data and are not based on stolen copyrighted materials from foreign sources.

A friend got me a set of Soviet military maps dating to the 1970s and 1980s, which are uncopyrighted and unlike Soviet military maps of foreign countries contain original cartographic data and are not based on stolen copyrighted materials from foreign sources. I have thus begun examining them when the weather is bad for usable data. Two new route numbers emerged, the P-3 and P-10 national highways, which have been duly added to both the map and the Turkmenistan wiki article. The maps have also helped identify some villages on roads less traveled, where the names were preserved from the Soviet period into the current period (not many, but a few, and every little bit helps).

The map of Turkmenistan is actually useful. Today I needed to buy an elastic bandage, which involved a trip to a pharmacy. We have mapped enough pharmacies in Ashgabat that finding two pharmacies nearby was easy. The bandage was made in Dashoguz, and cost 16 manat (about $4.50 at the official exchange rate).

Finding Vandals and Language Hotspots with Unicode

I’ve long wanted to see a true map of the world’s languages. We know where languages are supposed to be spoken, but where are the real borders, where are the little enclaves? Recently I finally got the server space to download the global OSM data and look for myself!

I’ve long wanted to see a true map of the world’s languages. We know where languages are supposed to be spoken, but where are the real borders, where are the little enclaves? Recently I finally got the server space to download the global OSM data and look for myself!

For this project, I take the primary ‘name’ tag of any points, and using Jan Lelis’s unicode-blocks Ruby gem, determine where its characters fall in the Unicode block system. This blog post is in English speakers’ familiar “Basic Latin”, “Latin-1 Supplement”, and “General Punctuation”, which are common enough that I’ve filtered them out from this map.

Explore

You can view the map at mapmeld.com/osm-unicode-coverage/ and data and source code are on GitHub. I think Europe and Asia, being the largest files, may have been undercounted or only partially read by my script, but it still shows all of the expected language coverage.

Local Language Hotspots

Tifinagh (ⵜⵉⴼⵉⵏⴰⵖ) is used alongside Arabic across North Africa. In the past five years, OpenStreetMap users started labeling all Moroccan cities in Latin, Arabic, and Tifinagh script. You can see a handful of other locations in Algeria and Libya.

Morocco and Algeria

The letters in “Latin Extended-B” and “IPA Extensions” are common on a small section of the Guyana-Brazil border. This seems to overlap with a local language known as Wayampi. There is another cluster in the Tizi Ouzou region of Algeria. That doesn’t mean that these languages are related at all — just when new sounds and/or symbols were added to the Unicode standard, both were included in the same batch of updates.

rainforest collection

Similarly, “Latin Extended-D” appears only on Easter Island. There is a small cluster of N’Ko labeled cities and rivers in Guinea.

Canadian Aboriginal Syllabics are used over a wide area, but don’t appear to ‘cluster’ as much. I’d like to see some initiatives to get this used more often. Canada

Outliers

Seeing a solitary marker for the “Latin Extended Additional” block, we find that Australia’s Uluṟu includes the letter ṟ.

Uluru map

I found India’s Antarctic base because it’s labeled in Devanagari script.

Antarctica

A Greek hostel in Vila Velha, Brazil? A Chinese bank in the Bahamas? There were other unusual outliers which I couldn’t fully identify or verify on Google Street View.

Vandals

A “Canadian Aboriginal Syllabics” point in Colombia caught my attention. This user stylized the shop name as ᗰI ᑕᗩᔕᗩ, but Mapnik had some issues rendering it.

Mi Casa

A seemingly harmless extra bus stop named in Lao script in a neighborhood outside of Adelaide, Australia, got scraped into the content generator OpeningHoursAU.com

bus stop

I found attempts to add ‘flag emojis’ and a handful of points in Tenerife which had Glagolitic (unused old Croatian script). The reason for this type of vandalism is unclear, but they should be removed.

Caveats

  • OpenStreetMap data is © OpenStreetMap and contributors, and was downloaded from https://download.geofabrik.de/
  • By using the Unicode script, I miss distinction between several language sets, such as Russian, Ukrainian, Abkhazian, and Mongolian using different parts of the Cyrillic alphabet.
  • By using node names, I missed names used on ways, particularly roads, rivers, and buildings where I’ve seen local languages used in the past.
  • I haven’t checked if Guyana and Easter Island have the ‘correct’ Latin extended letters for their names, just noting a common pattern.
  • I checked only the primary name=__ tag, and not the alternate names (name:en=, name:es=), I’m leaving a lot of multilingual names. This was OK with me because cities often have dozens of alternate WikiData names, and the main name tag is the primary, most-seen one.

Finding gaps in local language coverage

There are many areas which aren’t highlighted by the map because they were Anglicized by map editors. As an example, places in the Marshall Islands aren’t labeled in their Marshallese names (e.g. Mājro, Arņo). Unicode may not be done adding new codepoints for Marshallese (ņ here is repurposed from the Latvian alphabet).

It would be interesting to reach out to editors who have added ~5 places in N’Ko alphabet in Guinea, or similar local scripts, to expand the number of local scripts used on OSM.

OpenStreetMap protestiert gegen Art 13 der EU Copyright Directive – auch uMap macht mit 1 | Map © uMap, Data © OpenStreetMap contributors

Urheberrechtsrichtlinie und OpenStreetMap

  • Michael Reichert schlägt vor, OSM-Dienste abzuschalten oder Protestbanner gegen den EU-Plan zur Umsetzung der neuen, umstrittenen Urheberrechtsrichtlinie zu schalten. Die Frage bleibt jedoch, warum der Protest gegen die EU-Politik wichtiger ist als bestehende oder geplante Freiheitsbeschränkungen in anderen Regionen.
  • Am Dienstag ist es soweit: Dann entscheidet das EU-Parlament final über die Urheberrechtsreform und damit auch Artikel 13 samt den Upload-Filtern …, so ein Bericht von ComputerBase. Heise online erkennt auch die Protestaktionen der OpenStreetMap.

In eigener Sache

  • Die Übertragung von weeklyOSM auf Server der FOSSGIS und die nachfolgend notwendigen Wartungsarbeiten sind abgeschlossen. Wir bedanken uns für den Transfer bei Peter Barth und Andreas Hubel ganz herzlich. Ganz besonders aber bedanken wir uns bei Anthony Bennett aka @internetgeog von www.internetgeography.net für seine langjährige Administration der Seite, die er seit 2014 vorbildlich gepflegt hat.

Mapping

  • Jan S. schlägt eine bessere Unterscheidung zwischen Einrichtungen der Polizei vor, entwarf einen Vorschlag diesbezüglich und bittet um Kommentare.
  • Mitglieder des Politecnico di Milano haben eine Seite im OSM-Wiki erstellt, um das Verständnis und die Kartierung der Landnutzung zu verbessern und damit die Analyse und Visualisierung von Umweltfragen wie der Entwaldung zu erleichtern.
  • Paul Allen fragt, ob Superrouten gut, schlecht oder hässlich sind. In seinem Beitrag auf der Tagging-Mailingliste erwähnt er auch einige Vor- und Nachteile des umstrittenen Konstrukts. In der Diskussion wurde auch gefragt, ob Relationen vom type=route, die Relationen enthalten, gegenüber Superrelationen bevorzugt werden sollten.
  • Antoine Riche wies auf undiskutierte Wiki-Änderungen über das Tagging von Radwegen hin und löste eine lange Diskussion über den Umgang mit Einbahnbeschränkungen aus.
  • Mapper stimmen über die Abschaffung von Relationen des Typs associatedStreet in Deutschland ab.
  • Um das Tagging von Baumreihen und ob sich Gestrüpp ähnlich wie natural=tree_row taggen lässt, wurde im Forum diskutiert.

Sie weist darauf hin, wie die humanitäre Kartierung, insbesondere durch HOT, dazu beigetragen hat, die Transformation zu dokumentieren und wertvolle Daten für die Planung und Verwaltung der sich schnell entwickelnden Region zu liefern.
  • Ein Beitrag auf MapGive, einer Initiative der Humanitarian Information Unit des US-Außenministeriums, beschreibt, wie aktualisierte Luftbilder dazu beigetragen haben, die humanitäre Kartierung zu verbessern. MapGive unterstützte die Kartierung von MissingMaps in Uganda und Bangladesch durch die Bereitstellung aktueller Bildmaterialen. Der Blogbeitrag zeigt Unterschiede in der Luftbildqualität im Laufe der Jahre und einen Vorher-Nachher-Vergleich von OSM-Daten rund um Flüchtlingslager in Norduganda.

Open-Data

  • Vom 28. bis 30. August findet in Quito die Open Data Konferenz Abrelatam19 statt.

Programme

  • TriMet hat 2009 den Open-Source-Routenplaner „OpenTripPlanner“ entwickelt, der den öffentlichen Nahverkehr mit Fußgänger- und Fahrradrouting verbindet. Das Tool, das Daten des öffentlichen Verkehrs im Format der General Transit Feed Specification „GTFS“ verwenden kann und auf OSM-Daten basiert, hat in der OSM-Community einige Popularität gewonnen. Das Unternehmen kündigte eine neue Version seines Tools an, das auch Daten von Uber, SHARE NOW (ehemals car2go) und BIKETOWN integriert und die Echtzeit-Standorte von Fahrzeugen und Fahrrädern zur Routenberechnung nutzen kann. Eine Beta-Version mit Daten für Portland, USA, ist verfügbar.
  • Die Android-App OSMTracker wurde kürzlich auf den OSMF-Tileserver blockiert, weil sie die Richtlinien zur Kachelnutzung nicht eingehalten hat, was für eine Frage auf help.openstreetmap.org sorgte. Die Tile Usage Policy verlangt die Angabe eines App-spezifischen User-Agents.
  • Fabian Kowatsch von HeiGIT gibt bekannt, dass das HeiGIT Big Spatial Data-Team eine öffentliche, weltweite Instanz der ohsome OSM History Analysis Plattform veröffentlicht hat, die eine API, ein aktualisiertes Dashboard und den beta Prototyp der Kartenanwendung ohsomeHEX (OSM History Explorer) enthält. Auf diese Weise kannst Du die Entwicklung eines beliebigen OSM-Tags für beliebige Regionen und Zeiträume auf einfache Weise analysieren. Einige Beispiele sind in früheren Blogs enthalten, die jetzt für beliebige Regionen auf der Erde angepasst werden können. Ideen für weitere Verbesserungen sind herzlich willkommen.

Releases

Kennst du schon …

  • … die OSM Software Watchlist (Release Stände) von Wambacher? Sie wurde um 15 OSM Anwendungen erweitert.
  • … die Tags für die in Deutschland nicht ganz so häufigen Spuren nur für Linksabbieger in der Mitte der Straße die aus beiden Richtungen benutzt werden dürfen? Diese lassen sich erfassen mit der Kombination aus lanes:both_ways= 1 und turn:both_ways = left

  • In einem Artikel auf Medium berichtet Caitlin Dewey über die Geschichte des Fruit Belt-Viertels in Buffalo, New York, die auf Google Maps verdrängt wurde. Der Artikel folgt den Bewohnern und ihren Nachforschungen, wie Google ungenaue Daten von Pitney Bowes erhalten haben könnte und wie diese entstanden sind. Sie weist auch darauf hin, wie wenig Kontrolle die Gemeinschaft über die Fehlbeschriftung hatte. Im Vergleich dazu wurde das Viertel erst vor wenigen Tagen auf OSM erstellt, mit viel Raum für Verbesserungen in der Gegend.
  • Jorge Andres, ein freiwilliger Kartograph für MapAction, erläutert in seinem Blog, wie man bei der Kartierung von vulkanischen Gefahren am effektivsten Hilfe leistet. Er deutet an, dass 3D-Visualisierungen effektiver sind und Konturlinien in 2D dazu neigen, wichtige Details zu verdecken.
  • Tom Lee, Mapbox’ Experte für Politik, sagte vor dem Justizausschuss des US-Senats über die Reform des Datenschutzrechts aus.

OpenStreetMap protest against Art 13 of the EU Copyright Directive 1 | © OpenStreetMap

[Actual Category]

  • Michael Reichert suggests turning off OSM services or adding banners to protest against the EU plan to implement the new, controversial, Copyright Directive. However, the question remains as to why the protest against EU politics is more important than existing or proposed restrictions of freedom elsewhere.

About us

  • The transfer of weeklyOSM to the FOSSGIS server and the subsequent necessary maintenance work has been completed. Users might have noticed some minor interruptions in service last weekend whilst this was taking place. We would like to thank Peter Barth and Andreas Hubel for the transfer. We especially want to thank Anthony Bennett aka @internetgeog of www.internetgeography.net for many years of administration of the site, which he has maintained exemplarily since 2014.

Mapping

  • Jan S proposes better differentiation between various kinds of police facilities. Jan has drafted a proposal and is seeking comments.
  • Members of the Polytechnic University of Milan (Politecnico di Milano) created a deforestation mapping wiki page to improve the understanding and mapping of land coverage to make analysis and visualisation of environmental issues such as deforestation easier.
  • Paul Allen asks whether superroutes are good, bad or ugly. In his post on the tagging mailing list he mentions some pros and cons of the controversial construct. During the discussion it was also asked whether relations of type=route containing child relations should be preferred over superrelations.
  • Antoine Riche pointed to undiscussed wiki changes about cycleway tagging which resulted in a long discussion about how to deal with oneway restrictions.
  • German mappers are voting on the deprecation of relations of type associatedStreet in Germany.

Community

Imports

OpenStreetMap Foundation

  • The minutes of the OSMF Licence Working Group meeting of 14 February have been published.
  • The OSM Operations Team announced on Twitter that one of OSM’s tile caches received a Denial of Service attack by someone using Amazon servers and an Load Impact User-Agent.

Events

  • The FOSS4G North America, an open geospatial technology and business conference, will take place from 15 to 18 April 2019 in San Diego, USA. The program is available on the conference’s homepage.
  • The next mapathon of MAMAPA will take place on 28 March at the Abendakademie in Mannheim. Beyond the humanitarian objective of the Mapathon, MAMAPA promotes the integration of new immigrants in Germany, in which locals and migrants map in tandem. Through the joint work prejudices and stereotypical thinking are reduced and mutual trust is strengthened.
  • The 7th (seventh!) annual conference organised by OpenStreetMap France will take place from 14 to 16 June in Montpellier (34), on the campus of the Paul Valéry University. Proposals for presentations in 5′, 25′, 55′ or even 2-hour workshops will be accepted until 15 April.

Humanitarian OSM

  • Russell Deffner calls for help with mapping flooded areas in Mozambique and Zimbabwe exacerbated by Cyclone Idai. More information about current tasks and how you can help can be found on the corresponding wiki page.
  • Nina Strochlic covers in National Geographic how the Bidibidi refugee camp in North Uganda is transforming into a permanent city. She points out how humanitarian mapping, HOT in particular, has helped in documenting the transformation and provided valuable data for planning and managing the quickly evolving area.
  • A story on MapGive, an initiative of the U.S. Department of State’s Humanitarian Information Unit, details how updated aerial imagery has helped crowdsourced humanitarian mapping. MapGive helped mapping efforts of Missing Maps in Uganda and Bangladesh by providing support with current imagery. The blog post shows differences in aerial imagery over the years and a before and after comparison of OSM data around refugee camps in Northern Uganda.

Open Data

  • The regional conference and conference on Latin American Open Data Abrelatam19 will be held at Quito from 28 to 30 August 2019.

Software

  • TriMet in 2009 launched the open source trip planner “OpenTripPlanner” that combines public transport transit with walking and biking. The tool, which can use public transport data in General Transit Feed Specification “GTFS” format and is based on OSM data, gained some popularity within the OSM community. The company announced a new version of its tool that can also incorporate data from Uber, SHARE NOW (formerly car2go) and BIKETOWN and uses real-time locations of vehicles and bikes to calculate routes. A beta version with data for Portland, OR, USA is available.
  • The Android app OSMTracker, which is popular with OSM mappers, no longer shows maps as a background to tracks. OSMTracker uses the generic user-agent from the osmdroid library which was recently blocked by the OSM Operations Team. The tile usage policy requires application-specific user agents.
  • Fabian Kowatsch, of HeiGIT, announced that the HeiGIT Big Spatial Data team published a public world-wide instance of the ohsome OSM History Analysis Platform including an API, an updated dashboard and the beta prototype map interface ohsomeHEX (OSM History Explorer). All this allows you to analyse the evolution of any OSM tag for arbitrary regions and time periods in a simple way. Several examples are given in earlier blogs which now can be adapted for arbitrary regions around the world. Ideas for further enhancements are most welcome.

Releases

  • Version 5 of Openrouteservice was published. The service, developed by The Heidelberg Institute for Geoinformation Technology, bears the name of the Jupiter moon Io.

Did you know …

  • … the OSM Software Watchlist (release status) by Wambacher? It has been extended to cover another 15 OSM applications.
  • … the tagging of a centre turn lane? This is described using the tags lanes:both_ways= 1 and turn:both_ways = left.

Other “geo” things

  • Dr. Michele M Tobias asked #gischat on Twitter “Can you tell your GIS/mapping career story in one tweet?” Read the nice stories and please tell your OSM story as well. 😉
  • As Marius Watz has tweeted, the Norwegian municipality Trysil decided not to name streets but numbered thousands of cabin buildings instead. The website nrk.no reported that the step caused chaos for tourists, desperate cottage owners and emergency services.
  • Bryan Housel asks for help to “link branded businesses in OpenStreetMap to wikidata”.
  • The Guardian reports on desire lines: “illicit trails that defy the urban planners”. (Note: there is a small amount of data in OSM identifying such paths, see 1 and 2).
  • In an article on Medium, Caitlin Dewey covers the story of the Fruit Belt neighbourhood in Buffalo, New York which had been replaced on Google Maps by something called “Medical Park”. The article follows the residents and their investigation into how Google may have acquired inaccurate neighbourhood data from Pitney Bowes and how that came to be. She also points out how little control the community had over the mislabelling. In comparison, the neighbourhood had only been added to OSM a few days ago with plenty of room for map improvements in the area.
  • Jorge Andres, a volunteer cartographer for MapAction, discusses, on their corporate blog, how to most effectively represent topographical relief when mapping volcanic hazards. He suggests that 3D visualisations are more effective, and in 2D contour lines tend to obscure significant details.
  • Tom Lee, Mapbox’s lead on policy, testified before the US Senate Judiciary Committee regarding privacy law reform.

Wie geht das?

Hi, wenn ich in der Maps-App bin und bei einem markierten Ort nach oben scrolle, erscheint manchmal ganz unten die blaue Schrift: Ort ändern ( oder so ähnlich…), oft aber auch nicht. Woran liegt das und was kann ich tun, um Orte direkt aus der App zu ändern? Ps: das ist auch so, wenn ich bei openstreetmap eingeloggt bin.

Danke

Pss: “ Dieser Ort existiert nicht” erscheint genauso

First Day

Today was my first data editing in open streetmap. I was working on project #5795 - Jeremie - Mapping of the unsafe places based on gender - Women Connect Challenge - Haiti. I was editing streets and buildings. I hope to regularly work on humanitarian projects. I’m very exited to have found a link to this site on LinkedIn. Can’t wait to keep working!

Raining Cats and Dogs

Well, not really, but welcome heavy rains are drenching Ashgabat and environs. This is good news for the wheat crop and sets the stage for successful cotton planting in another couple of weeks. This is a desert, so rains in winter and spring are a blessing.

Well, not really, but welcome heavy rains are drenching Ashgabat and environs. This is good news for the wheat crop and sets the stage for successful cotton planting in another couple of weeks. This is a desert, so rains in winter and spring are a blessing.

For collecting ground-level imagery, of course, it’s not that good. Today I scouted a couple of textile mills to nail down their names, but could not really collect imagery, so did it the old-fashioned way–scribbled their names onto a FieldPapers printout. While at it I found a couple more street names in an Ashgabat suburb, Yasmansalyk, and then came home to update Bereket based on imagery collected some time back but never analyzed. So rainy days are good for something in cartography, too, not only agriculture!
