Day Trip

Monday my schedule was inexplicably scrapped. An all-day conference failed to materialize. We went for a drive, a day trip first to Nohur, where Alexander the Great left behind a garrison some thousands of years ago, and where some inhabitants to this day have green eyes bequeathed by their Greek ancestors, then onward, to the Sumbar River valley.

Monday my schedule was inexplicably scrapped. An all-day conference failed to materialize. We went for a drive, a day trip first to Nohur, where Alexander the Great left behind a garrison some thousands of years ago, and where some inhabitants to this day have green eyes bequeathed by their Greek ancestors, then onward, to the Sumbar River valley. I identified two mysterious villages that appear on imagery but till then in OSM had no names: Kürüždeý and Duzlydepe. We drove over dirt and gravel mountain roads, down steep valleys, and confirmed the tracks of some roads, including one that follows a riverbed for a little way (the water was not deep this time of year).

I also found that a road someone drew "speculatively" (his word) on the map about four years ago doesn't really exist, at least not where it was drawn. Upon return I adjusted it to the GPS trace as far as we went, but deleted what I could not confirm. Locals said the road goes no farther any more due to mud- and rock slides, so that part of the OSM map is more accurate now.

Mapillary imagery is being uploaded as I type this. The scenery was nice, but in springtime it must be spectacular. I will have to go back when the grass is green and the flowers are blooming.


Netflix og serier nyheder film

Jeg har længe overvejet, hvordan jeg kunne finde nyheder på dansk om Netflix. Hvor finder jeg en teaser, en trailer, nyheder om kommende serier og film og skuespillere?

Der findes ikke meget af dette i Danmark. Men nu har jeg fundet Moreflix, som har alle disse ting, må jeg sige.

Using Rob Whitaker's tool to map UK Public Rights of Way

We're coming to the end of the UK quarterly mapping project on footpaths.

The footpath designation=* edit tracker

...is running for just 5 more days. So last chance to get on there UK folks! This is all about our UK system of legally designated "public rights of way", so if you're elsewhere in the world you may stop reading now.

We're coming to the end of the UK quarterly mapping project on footpaths.

The footpath designation=* edit tracker

...is running for just 5 more days. So last chance to get on there UK folks! This is all about our UK system of legally designated "public rights of way", so if you're elsewhere in the world you may stop reading now.

You may notice that I only just became a new starter on there myself! This is partly because I found it a bit tricky to understand what we're supposed to do, but I finally sat down and figured it out at the weekend. Sorry it took me so long, but better late than never, here's a few quick pointers:

Use Rob Whitaker's PRoW data comparison tool. There's a list of regions where he's managed to get PRoW data.

Drill down to regions -> districts -> borough. You might pick where you live, but not everywhere's on there. Failing that, try to find somewhere you know. Failing that, I guess it doesn't matter where you pick.

Now you'll see a map with lines. Here's a bit of Watford

flickr

The lines appearing on this map are different colours for different designations. Yellow for footpaths, blue for bridleways etc. More importantly they are Thin: done, Fat: todo. So in the above image I have done the long footpath through Cassiobury Park on the left, hence that yellow line turned thin. The rest to the right are fat lines still to do.

What does "done" mean? Well the lines actually represent local council GIS data. It's where the council thinks there are footpaths, and where they have official designations as such. Each one has a reference number.

Click the line to reveal the official reference number. Copy that whole title, and put it as the value in the prow_ref=* tag. For example this path has "prow_ref=Watford Borough FP 30" (including space characters)

flickr

The designation=* tag is easier. It's just one of public_footpath, public_bridleway, restricted_byway, or byway_open_to_all_traffic. Those are our longhand OpenStreetMap values. The official data uses the more compact codes: FP, BR, RB, BY.

So these tags go on the corresponding way in OpenStreetMap, where "corresponding" means all the ways which seem to match exactly or almost exactly with where the path runs in the official data. You may need to set the same prow_ref on several little footpath ways. You may need to divide a long footpath way to match just the length where the prow_ref applies.

If there is no corresponding way, then this is interesting. Maybe you've found something missing in OpenStreetMap. Maybe you've found something wrong in the official data. Time to dig deeper, or flag it for somebody local to investigate I guess. As the page states, we should not blindly copy the geometry data into OSM from the council GIS data. The page also states the source tag to use on your changeset for the particular district you're looking at. (e.g. in Watford it's source=hertfordshire_county_council_prow_gis_data on the changeset). In fact in general the page gives lots of information which is worth reading through. I'm essentially trying to give a summary here. Did I get it right?

So this whole thing is an exercise in ticking off matches with this 3rd party data, by adding in the prow_refs. Like any process of ticking things off, there's a certain satisfaction in getting it done in an area I guess.

...

But I have to say (after all this) I haven't found it all that interesting or addictive to do myself. There's obviously lots of this matching to do as an armchair mapping exercise, but it would more interesting to do in an area if I knew it better. I'd probably enjoy doing some bits of West Yorkshire, if that was available. But also it feels a bit like littering our data with 3rd party arbitrary reference codes. prow_ref values are certainly not verifiable on the ground! And they're "official", sure, but I've come to associate "official" government data in OSM as shoddy quality and limited value (Seemingly the opposite of what many folks think official data is)

I guess the value here is in ticking things off, whittling down towards finding those interesting cases where we might be missing a footpath. So 5 days left. The choice is yours. Go wild adding those prow_ref & designation tags... or don't :-)

Yesterday 9/23/18 was the "Typhoon Ompong Mapathon" at Co. Lab Pasig which the goal is to map affected areas by the recent super typhoon Ompong, joining with me in this mapping session is Ron. Woke up that morning and went to the set meeting place that Ron and I talked about, although Ron lives at Pasig I was the one to arrive first at the meeting place and waited at a nearby mcdonalds which was around 30 mins., he arrived late because there was traffic at his place which was unusual since its a Sunday, we arrived 10:30 (set time was 9:00 AM) cause we got lost and with the google map we were following is slightly inaccurate but nonetheless we still got there sweating haha (hot day). I like the chill vibe that Co. Lab offers as a workplace which you can rent, kinda like what function rooms do. I was surprised that the people there got the invitation randomly which I thought it is composed of select students from other schools although there were some but it mostly composed of adults wanting to learn and contribute. I enjoyed it, talked to the people at our side of the table, one is also a freshmen and his course is related to geography and he is new to osm, Ron taught him some basic stuff and was good to go, while that was happening I got to map a lot of buildings (around 3000 plus nodes) given by the instruction of the hot tasking manager, moved up through the rankings in the leader board which I was very contended. We ended the session around 1:20 PM and took a group photo, bid farewell to some people and headed home.

Turkmenistan's National Highway System

Based on my meetings with the minister of motor roads and the head of the Turkmen Motor Roads State Concern "Türkmenawtoýollary" plus interviews of local drivers, hunters, fishermen, and others here, I have identified many of the segments of the national highway system in Turkmenistan and as of this evening have mapped all but one of them.

Based on my meetings with the minister of motor roads and the head of the Turkmen Motor Roads State Concern "Türkmenawtoýollary" plus interviews of local drivers, hunters, fishermen, and others here, I have identified many of the segments of the national highway system in Turkmenistan and as of this evening have mapped all but one of them. The P-8 "highway", really a dirt road, needs GPS traces to be collected before it can be properly identified, and that is problematic since it is in a border zone more or less off-limits to foreigners. I know people who have driven that route but they are unable to verify its route from satellite imagery.

We are still missing the route number for the highway from Kerki to Ymamnazar. It overlaps with the P-36 part of the way, but not all of the way.

There may be other "national highway" routes out there and I'll continue to keep my eyes peeled for them.

Some local mappers have taken it upon themselves to add street names in some towns in Turkmenistan following my master classes and presentations on mapping. That is gratifying. New POIs are popping up, as well. If we could only find all the gas stations!

Hi. Beim Planen einer Tour mit Hilfe von Online-Router ist mir in der Gudrunstraße (Nähe Matzleinsdorfer Platz, Wien) eine zunächst unerklärliche Uregelmäßigkeit aufgefallen:

Eigenartiges Routing

Je nach Router wird im Bereich der Haltestelle auf die Straße ausgewichen oder ein Umweg genommen. Im iD-Editor wird die Haltestelle so dargestellt:

Haltestelle im iD-Editor

Ich bin jetzt kein OSM/Routing-Experte, aber ich vermute das Problem liegt darin, dass die „Bushaltestelle (Wartebereich)“ den Gehsteig unterbricht. Am Ort gibt es diese Unterbrechung nicht:

Photo der Haltestelle

Die Haltestellentafel und die Bank sind zurückgerückt und der Gehsteig davor ist frei begehbar. Sollte das nicht auch so gemappt werden? Jemand hat sich sehr viel Mühe gemacht, die Haltestellen so genau zu beschreiben. Daher möchte ich nichts ohne Zustimmung ändern. Vielen Dank für eure Kommentare!

    Erreichbarkeit von Orten – ausgehend von Berlin Mitte – Open-Source-Modul von GrapHopper [1] | © GraphHopper, ©MapTiler, Map data © OpenStreetMap contributors

Mapping

  • Als David Earl in Cambridge vor Ort eine Veränderung für OpenStreetMap erkundete, traf er auf einen Vermesser, der dasselbe für den Ordnance Survey tat, die nationale Landesvermessung Großbritanniens. Wir wissen alle, wessen Karte zuerst auf dem neuen Stand war 😉
  • Die Verwendung von type=watershed ohne ein Proposal oder andere Dokumentation führte zu einer Diskussion auf der Tagging-Mailingliste, um ein gemeinsames Verständnis für die Nutzung des Tags zu finden. Offensichtlich ist aber umstritten, ob in OSM Wassereinzugsgebiete erfasst werden sollten.
  • dannykath vom Development Seed Team schrieb einen Beitrag über die Kartierung von kommerziellen Farmen in Äthiopien. Das Team kartierte im Rahmen eines Weltbank-Projekts mehr als 190 solcher Farmen mit Hilfe von ESRI World Satellitenbildern, Sentinel-2 Agriculture Mosaik und JOSM.
  • Ab wann ist ein Laden ein Kaufhaus und wird somit als shop=department_store getaggt? Auf den ersten Blick eine einfache Frage, aber am Beispiel des Einzelhändlers Müller wurde im Forum doch lebhaft diskutiert.

Community

  • Die Hochschule Hof wird OSM-Daten aus der Region Hochfranken analysieren und algorithmisch auswerten. Dadurch soll es ermöglicht werden, anonymisierte Bewegungsmuster vorherzusagen, um Verbesserungen in der Nahverkehrsversorgung zu erreichen. Das Forschungsprojekt wird vom Bundesministerium für Verkehr und digitale Infrastruktur gefördert.
  • Sollten Benutzer in ihrem Benutzer-Blog Kommentare löschen können? Dieser Vorschlag von Rory McCann stößt im Bugtracker der OpenStreetMap-Website auf GitHub auf breite Kritik.

OpenStreetMap Foundation

  • Mikel Maron informiert über die Bemühungen der OSMF, sich gegen das vorgeschlagene EU-Urheberrechtsgesetz zu wehren, das in seiner jetzigen Form die Arbeit an OSM beeinträchtigen könnte. Offensichtlich haben die Diskussionen zu einer neuen Dynamik geführt.

Veranstaltungen

  • Die Schweizer WikiCon 2018 findet vom 5. bis 7. Oktober in St. Gallen statt. OSM wird in zwei Veranstaltungen Thema sein. Die lokale OSM-Vertretung SOSM wird außerdem einen Infostand bieten.
  • Ebenfalls im Oktober findet die DINAcon 2018 statt, eine Konferenz für digitale Nachhaltigkeit. Das Schweizer Local Chapter SOSM wird auch mit einer Session am 19. Oktober dabei sein.
  • Für die FOSSGIS-Konferenz vom 13. bis 16. März 2019 in Dresden wurde dazu aufgerufen, Beiträge einzureichen.

Humanitarian OSM

  • HOT veröffentlichte einen Artikel über einen kürzlich von GESAN organisierten Mapathon. Die Veranstaltung, die sich an Studenten der Geomatik richtete, konzentrierte sich auf die Kartierung von bestimmten katastrophengefährdeten Gebieten.

Karten

  • Die OpenTopoMap läuft wegen technischer Probleme derzeit auf einem Backup-Server. Daher wird die Karte nicht aktualisiert und die Zoomstufen 15 bis 17 werden überhaupt nicht dargestellt. Möglicherweise muss das bis November beibehalten werden.

switch2OSM

  • Die französische Website L’informaticien vergleicht (fr) (automatische Übersetzung) OSM mit Google Maps und dem offiziellen Geodatenanbieter IGN.
  • Wetter.com nutzt jetzt OSM als Basiskarte, wie User aromatiker im Forum feststellt.

Lizenzen

  • Gael Musquet kritisiert (fr) einen Bericht der französischen Regierung, in dem freie Lizenzen als „Kontamination“ abgewertet werden.
  • Benutzer Kaxttillo sammelt Beispiele (es) (automatische Übersetzung), wo OSM-Karten in Filmen und Fernsehserien verwendet werden, und bittet die Community um weitere Beiträge. Außerdem stellt er die Frage, wie es sich mit der von der Lizenz geforderten Quellenangabe in diesen Fällen verhält, da OSM in den Credits nicht erwähnt wird.
  • Ist YouTube verantwortlich, wenn ein User urheberrechtlich geschütztes Material hochlädt? Eine Grundsatzfrage, die auch OSM einmal betreffen könnte. Derzeit strengt ein Musikproduzent ein Verfahren an, bei dem der Bundesgerichtshof jetzt den Europäischen Gerichtshof hinzuzieht. Dabei liegt noch das „alte“ Urheberrecht zugrunde.

Programme

  • Yuri Astrakhan kündigte die Erweiterung des OSM-Wiki um eine Wikibase-Erweiterung an. Wikibase speichert Daten aus dem OSM-Wiki in einem strukturierten, maschinenlesbaren Datenspeicher ähnlich wie Wikidata. Ein guter Einstieg in das Thema ist die OSM-Wikibase-Seite.

Programmierung

  • Andrei Kaschcha (Anvaka) kündigte eine sehr schnelle Wegfindungs-JavaScript-Bibliothek an. Sie lässt sich in einem Video betrachten oder in einer Live-Demonstration mit 6 Metropolen ausprobieren.
  • Zusammen mit Ralph Straumann hat Riccardo Klinger einen OSM-Datenimporter namens OSMquery für die Geoinformationssysteme ArcMAP und ArcGIS programmiert. Die Toolbox dient als Frontend für die Overpass-API.

Releases

  • [1] Das GraphHopper-Projekt kündigte die Veröffentlichung der Version 0.11 seiner Routing-Engine an. Ein wichtiger Meilenstein ist das Open Sourcing des Isochronmoduls. Die Isochron-API kann die erreichbare Fläche basierend auf limitierenden Faktoren wie Zeit, Fahrmodus und Startpunkt berechnen. Weitere Verbesserungen sind das ÖPNV-Modul sowie die Einführung einer Open-Source-Navigationsbibliothek.

Kennst du schon …

  • … die Map geldautomaten-suche.org? Eine neue, besser an die Darstellung auf Mobilgeräten angepasste Version ist jetzt verfügbar.
  • … die deutsche Initiative zur Schaffung einer Klimaschutzkarte? Die Seite enthält auch eine Anleitung, wie man seine Umgebung in OSM kartieren kann. OSM wird als Basis für eine Änderung im Mobilitätsverhalten angesehen.
  • … die Liste der Unfälle beim Mappen? Da stellt sich die Frage, ob in den letzten fünf Jahren wirklich nichts mehr passiert ist.

OSM in der Presse

Weitere Themen mit Geo-Bezug

  • Ein in London ansässiger Grafikdesigner hat eine Sammlung von Fotos, die jedem begeisterten OpenStreetMapper in Großbritannien bekannt sind. Beispiele für seine Bilder von Straßenschildern werden im The Guardian gezeigt.
  • Eine Mapbox-Visualisierung des Hurrikans Florence wurde in einem Artikel der New York Times verwendet.
  • Das erste Ergebnis von Swiss Data Cube, einem Tool zur Organisation von Erdbeobachtungsdaten, ist eine Visualisierung von Schneedeckenänderung in der Schweiz.
  • Die Hochschule Kaiserslautern hat einen vielseitigen Fahrsimulator entwickelt, der für realistischer dargestellte Straßenzüge auf OSM-Daten zurückgreift.
  • Zum ersten Mal in der Geschichte ist es möglich, hochauflösende Bilder der Antarktis zu betrachten, nachdem Forscher ein hochaufgelöstes Geländemodell namens REMA veröffentlicht haben.
  • Das Video The Fake Neighborhoods on Google Maps beleuchtet weniger die Trap streets – es geht vielmehr um die Macht von Google, Gebieten falsche Namen zuzuordnen, die sich dann in der Öffentlichkeit verfestigen. Interessant ist auch das Beispiel dafür, dass Namen einschließlich Schreibfehler einfach kopiert werden. 😉
  • Potsdam ist wegweisend bei Tests von autonom fahrenden Straßenbahnen. Auf den Probefahrten gibt es keine Passagiere, und es ist derzeit noch ein Fahrer an Bord, der bei Problemen übernehmen kann. Als Kartenbasis auf den Displays der Straßenbahn wird OSM genutzt.
  • Im Hambacher Forst eskaliert der jahrelange Konflikt zwischen Naturschützern und einem Energiekonzern. Die Beschreibung der Historie des historischen „Bürgewaldes“ versucht zu vermitteln, warum es Widerstände gegen die Rodung gibt. In OSM ist der bis heute erhaltene kleine Restwald entlang der alten A4 und andere kleine Restbestände als Bürgewald eingetragen. Eine auf Historic Place verfügbare Karte aus dem Jahre 1893 zeigt die ursprüngliche Ausdehnung. Das OSM-basierte File Rheinisches Braunkohlenrevier wird regelmäßig gewartet und zeigt aktuell das ganze Braunkohlerevier. Kennst du übrigens schon die große Aussichtsplattform Grosser Indemann am benachbarten Braunkohletagebau Inden? Immer einen Ausflug wert.
