After the recent server failure, and the restore problems involved with this, I decided to upgrade to new server with some extra RAM and SSD space.

This took a bit longer to be provided due to some CPU shortages, but I now have access to the machine and have started to set it up. I hope to have it ready for testing by tomorrow, and it should be ready to fully take over on the next weekend.

The key figures are that the new machine has 128GB instead of 64GB, and 7TB of SSD space instead of the previous 2TB SSD plus 3TB HDD.

The extra RAM should help with the “out of memory” errors during rendering which happen every once in a while with large map areas.

The extra SSD space now allows to have the full database on fast storage, and has enough headroom for adding a few imposm based stiles, which was not possible so far.

What a mess!!

Re.: (www.openstreetmap.org/edit#map=16/34.9460/-111.6368)

I feel that the area in and around Munds Park, AZ has been very terribly rendered, most especially on the roads (for example, instead of showing smooth curves where they exist on the ground, they appear as jagged angles, or they do not follow the actually road path), and this is most obvious when zooming in

It is things like this that very greatly annoy me about OpenStreetMap, as it seems like someone did not wish to take the time to do the job right the first time, and now another user will have to make the adjustments and corrections to clean up the mess left behind.

I don’t know if anyone else feels the way that I do, but I just wanted to express my opinion on what could have otherwise been done properly I apologize if I am stepping on feet on this one… just trying to make OpenStreetMap a beautiful project for all to use.

Mapping campaigns

  • HailHydrant is now an official MapComplete theme and takes advantage of the browser-based, thematic editor, with the goal of making it easy for anyone to contribute to OpenStreetMap – whether on the desktop or on mobile. This theme focuses on mapping hydrants, fire extinguishers, fire stations, and ambulance stations in your neighbourhood. GOwin, an OSM volunteer from the Philippines, highlights the potential of the tool, and shared how the HailHydrant initiative came about.

Mapping

  • The ‘25 Mapathons‘ project team are running a test of a two-part mapathon. The first part was on Wednesday 5 May and the second part will be held on Tuesday 11 May. This test will evaluate a new two-part mapathon concept that is intended to break down existing barriers and challenges for beginners, and to increase user retention, as well as intrinsic and extrinsic motivation.
  • A request has been made for comments on the following proposal:

Community

OpenStreetMap Foundation

  • If you are interested in hosting the 2022 State of the Map conference in your city you can now submit your application. In a mail to OSM-talk Enock Seth Nyamador provided more information about deadlines, procedures and other helpful resources.

Local chapter news

  • Donat Robaux has announced (fr) > en, on the talk-fr mail list, that the next annual general meeting of the OpenStreetMap France association will be held online on Saturday 12 June at 2:30 pm. Although all contributors are cordially invited to attend, only members who are up to date with their membership fees will be able to participate in the votes. People who wish to apply for the board of directors must submit their application before 28 May by sending an email to ‘association AT listes.openstreetmap.fr’.

Education

  • A flood vulnerability modelling study for Germany has concluded that OpenStreetMap building footprints reduce model prediction errors and increase the reliability of model predictions by a factor of 1.4 in terms of the hit rate when compared to a model that uses only water depth as a predictor. The research comes from the German national institute for the Earth Sciences (GFZ Potsdam) and Humboldt University, Berlin.
  • MappingGIS has published (es) > en a small guide about OSM and its possibilities.

Maps

  • FacilMap 3 has been released. FacilMap is a browser-based map that aims to combine many different services based on OpenStreetMap into one versatile map, with a focus on planning routes and creating and sharing custom maps where users can add markers, lines and routes with live collaboration. FacilMap 3 is a major rewrite of the software, which includes an improved, smartphone-friendly UI and extensive user documentation.
  • Lubin Picard has created a map showing the gender of the people that have a street named after them in Le Mans (France). While it possible to do this through OpenStreetMap data, he choose BD Topo, as it is simpler to use for small projects.

Open Data

  • The Landesbetrieb Geoinformation und Vermessung has published (de) > en a digital elevation model of the city of Hamburg. Hannes has prepared and visualised (de) > en the data and also explains how he did this. Although the grid size is 1 metre, you can see many details.
  • The Indian Department of Science and Technology (DST) is inviting comments as part of a consultation on the draft National Geospatial Policy (which we reported on earlier).

Software

  • Heise.de referred, in an article (de) > en, to Protomaps, a software package with various tools for web developers for the creation of interactive 2D vector maps based on OpenStreetMap.

Did you know …

OSM in the media

  • The city of Mannheim has been using (de) > en HeiGIT’s openrouteservice (ORS) for routing in their publicly accessible online city map. ORS uses OSM data and offers a variety of freely useable API functions with global coverage, as well as different open source libraries and clients.

Other “geo” things

  • Steven Kay is well known for interesting visualisations of Edinburgh geodata. This time he has analysed Airbnb reviews, sourced from insideairbnb.com and binned them over a 200 m hexagon grid to show where these apartments are located. The large number of Airbnbs in the city has been a significant political issue for some time.
  • Sahana Ghosh reported on mapping future hotspots of carbon dioxide emissions from mangrove loss.
  • Over the past six years, Gareth Wild has kept a spreadsheet tracking his use of parking spots at his local supermarket in order to use each one of them. He has described how he ‘conquered’ all 211 of them.
  • The Swedish orienteer Tomas Karlsson came across a treasure from the Bronze Age while creating a orienteering map in western Sweden. Whether he used OSM in the process was unfortunately not disclosed in the article.
  • Queering the Map is a platform for collaboratively mapping queer experiences. The basemap is, disappointingly, in Google Maps.

Kira Team have the right to revoke your key at any time, But what have been used still valid and approved by us forever and ever, Thank you for contacting us! have a great day

Best Regards. Kira Team.

Me:

Hello, I have contacted open street map members and they said the license can’t be used because the osm data is used by everyone even for commercial use! So if I integrated Kira data on top of open street maps some commercial companies will use this as it is open source to everyone. Please can you explain if that’s a case considered in my permission or not and how?

Kira:

Hello, again testooools! Your concerns are in their place Actually, we are more than happy to confirm that: You can use your key for open street maps directly any effect follow this action will be (valid and approved by us forever and ever) as I mentioned earlier Open street maps are open source you can use our data on it and no worries about any outsider use. I’m sorry for not clarifying this earlier.

Thank you for contacting us! have a great day

The State of the Map conference is the annual, international conference of OpenStreetMap, organised by the OpenStreetMap Foundation. The OpenStreetMap Foundation is a not-for-profit organisation, formed in the UK to support the OpenStreetMap Project. It is dedicated to encouraging the growth, development and distribution of free geospatial data for anyone to use and share. The OpenStreetMap Foundation owns and maintains the infrastructure of the OpenStreetMap project. The State of the Map Organising Committee is one of our volunteer Working Groups.

OpenStreetMap was founded in 2004 and is an international project to create a free map  of the world. To do so, we, thousands of volunteers, collect data about  roads, railways, rivers, forests, buildings and a lot more worldwide.  Our map data can be downloaded for free by everyone and used for any  purpose – including commercial usage. It is possible to produce your own  maps which highlight certain features, to calculate routes etc.  OpenStreetMap is increasingly used when one needs maps which can be very  quickly, or easily, updated.

Dank des Feedbacks der sehr aufmerksamen und lieben Community hier, habe ich nun einige Veränderungen an meiner umap zum Thema Bürgerentscheide in Bayern vorgenommen. Zuletzt hatte ich noch eine Gliederung nach erfolgreichem BE. Diese habe ich jedoch fürs Erste verworfen und mich auf die thematische Gliederung konzentriert. Diese gefällt mir deutlich besser! Ich bin auch schon recht fleißig dabei, BEs einzutragen. Habe jetzt die Jahre 2021 (bisher), 2020 und 2019 eingetragen. Hier ist die Karte zu finden: (https://umap.openstreetmap.de/de/map/burgerentscheide-in-bayern_11914#7/49.137/11.536) Darüber hinaus habe ich die Karte nun in die Website meines Vereins mit integriert und sie mit einem “Bürgerentscheids-Ticker” für anstehende BEs in Bayern eingebunden: (https://bayern.mehr-demokratie.de/buergerbegehren/buergerentscheids-ticker/)

Wie bereits gesagt, mir gefällt die neue thematische Gliederung der BEs in meiner Karte schon sehr gut. Nur würde ich mir wünschen, dass ein Pin (also ein BE) mehreren Ebenen zugerechnet werden könnte. Also als Beispiel würde ich gerne den BE “Für einen hauptamtlichen Bürgermeister” nicht nur der Ebene “Satzungsplan” sondern auch einer extra-Ebene “2019” hinzufügen. Geht so etwas?

For quite sometime,I have edited some road networks around the Rigo District and Abau especially in Kupiano and Moreguina Rubber plantation as well as Babauguina Rubber Plantation. I can recall of a Survey field party that we did in 2015 regarding the setup of GPS for control station coordination using TOPCON HiPER system for aero-triangulation.

Those road were full of dirt and often times we complained of the wild experience along the Magi Highway en-route to Abau District. We were preparing the way for LiDAR(Light Detection and Ranging) work to be undertaken by FUGRO Geospatial for Australia. Visiting these thick vegetated areas some times inhospitable made Surveyor work really tough. Hu ah!! we did it..When I map these features in OSM, it brings back vivid memories of my travel in the “Land of the Unexpected”,Papua New Guinea

Is lockdown driving mass POI additions from GMaps by fly-by-night users?

Last January, I’ve just came upon several newbie users in the Philippines who have accumulated over a thousand edits within a few days, adding a thousand POIs, which I discovered by comparing coverage, are more or less copyright violations from Google Maps (with some POIs being at completely odd spots, someting usual with GMaps in some places). I’ve been able to clean up a bunch of their edits,

Last January, I’ve just came upon several newbie users in the Philippines who have accumulated over a thousand edits within a few days, adding a thousand POIs, which I discovered by comparing coverage, are more or less copyright violations from Google Maps (with some POIs being at completely odd spots, someting usual with GMaps in some places). I’ve been able to clean up a bunch of their edits, particularly those from a user named JP Baje and another working for a new ride-hail service in the Philippines, and asked the user about their source, but they never replied, and with their activity continuing unabated despite concerns from other fellow mappers back home, I have asked the DWG to have one of them blocked until they have read a message from the DWG addressing concerns. The other one hasn’t been blocked, and has stopped editing, but I’m trying to clean up their edits within my favourite locations while I’m trying to focus with mapping in Canada.

I have no idea why these fly-by-night editors would spring out here with the sole purpose of filling areas of several cities with POIs without providing their source, adding them one by one that make it hard to revert them in one huge sweep and disappearing later when the damage is done, but I think long and strict lockdowns (such as those in the Philippines) are driving this kind of mapping because in such situation, you can’t just go out of home – even within your neighbourhood – without having to present some form of travel authorization from the local government, or you’re a member of a demographic that is likely to get infected with COVID-19 (which in the Philippines, includes those under 14, above 60, or having a serious health condition as of the May 2021 quarantine restrictions) and I assume these users involved are unlikely to have been in those locations, before or during the mass quarantines. Any thoughts?


New Calming Traffic Island

I saw a new traffic calming traffic island announced on Twitter so i took a small detour and added it. I think i’ll add a Note to review it when new imagery is available.

The neighborhood has a number of other traffic calming measures, speed humps and new lower “Neighborhood” 20mph speed limit. Nice. I didn’t survey or change all the reduced streets, just the ones i drove.
