OSMF Board election manifesto

I'm Paul Norman, OSM user pnorman. I've been mapping since 2010, and involved in other facets of OpenStreetMap since 2011. For the last three years, I’ve been on the OSMF board, and am running for re-election.

I'm Paul Norman, OSM user pnorman. I've been mapping since 2010, and involved in other facets of OpenStreetMap since 2011. For the last three years, I’ve been on the OSMF board, and am running for re-election. During my time I’ve seen the board grow in productivity, the finances become more stable, and us make good strides in transparency.

Outside the board, I’m also involved with the OSMF on the Data Working Group, License Working Group, and Membership Working Group. As a software developer, I’m a maintainer of OpenStreetMap Carto and osm2pgsql, as well as being involved in many parts of rendering toolchain.

In my work life I’m an independent software developer, working on map rendering, cartography, and PostGIS for clients. My main contract right now is with Wikimedia Foundation, as the developer on their maps team. In the past I’ve worked for CartoDB, Mapquest, and other companies.

Looking back at what I put in my 2014 manifesto, I’m moderately pleased with the progress we’ve made in both transparency and productive board meetings. Neither are perfect, but they’re a vast improvement over three years. Overall, I’m satisfied with my time on the board. I accomplished some of what I wanted to, and think my manifesto desires were realistic.

My concerns are now

Conflicts of interest

6/7 board members work with OSM somehow in their jobs. This includes four with employers who sell services based on OSM data and can easily run into conflicts of interest. We are not managing this, which might have worked in the past, but is not a good practice. There’s stuff we need to set up like having an email discussion out of sight of the people with conflicts. Right now it’s considered acceptable for a board member to take part in discussions where they have a conflict of interest. Clear rules would also protect board members from pressure from their employer.

On a working group whenever there’s occasionally been an intersection between my work and the WG. In these cases I’ve removed myself from the discussion. This is what we should all be doing on the board.

Unfortunately, as someone who is paid to work with OSM data, I run into conflicts of interest myself, but in practice, I have less than most with the nature of who I work for.

Support, but not control

The job of the OSMF board is to support the mappers building the map, but not control them. I worry we are losing sight of that, and people increasingly want to exert control and consider the mappers secondary. We need to protect the ability for people to independently do activities, even if it’s not something the board agrees with.

Volunteer capacity

A lack of volunteers was an issue when I ran three years ago. It’s a bit better, but still one of the biggest issues facing the OSMF. Working groups need more people. A growing number of members have been attending board meetings, but I’d like to see multiple ones at every meeting. We need good people on the board, but we also need an active membership who are interested in what we do, watch us, what we do, track that we deliver, and offer appreciation in return.

Memory hog?

OSM is taking up huge amounts of memory on my Chromebook. Is this a known issue or is it because of the huge amounts of tiles, features, etc. that defines OSM?

#BC2020 Mapathons

BC2020

Building Canada 2020 project (BC2020) is a community-led initiative driven by a simple and clear vision: map all buildings in Canada on OpenStreetMap (OSM) by the year 2020. While interning at Mapbox, the Community Team supported my participation in the BC2020, but but my involvement actually initiated from my work at Statistics Canada on the Crowdsourcing project, as well as my personal interests in volunteered geographic information. For more details about the project, check out the Mapbox "Points of Interest" blog post I wrote.

Though conceptually simple, mapping all buildings in all of Canada on OSM is no simple task. Without a large and diverse group of individuals that are willing to maintain participation, we may find that contirbutions decline with time, as has been seen in many past crowdsourcing projects. Interest usually starts strong, which has been the case so far in BC2020, but other priorities can affect a volunteer's ability to remain committed to a proect, and thus participation can weaken or even stop. Therefore, in my opinion, the success of BC2020 comes from continuous engagement and education to various private and public organizations across all of Canada, which includes NGOs, government entities at various geographic levels, local citizens and experienced OSM contributors, and academic institutions.

Mapathon Organization

There has been a growing interest to incorporate OSM into academia, which I have witnessed online and which my former and current colleagues have informed me they witnessed at the HOT Summit in Ottawa (Sept. 14-15, 2017). With this in mind, Mapbox's Community Team and I believed engaging with Canadian post-secondary institutions would be a great opprotunity to educate academics and students, as well as other interested individuals, about OSM and how to contribute data onto OSM for BC2020 during OSMGeoWeek (Nov. 12-18, 2017) in a meaningful way!

When beginning, I wanted to ensure that the leaders for each mapathon had a GIS background, so I decided to reach out to individuals at various universities and colleges across Canada that were affiliated with either Geothink or were the heads of Geography libraries. After solidifying interest from 8 different groups (2 in BC, 1 in ATLA, 1 in MAN, 3 in ON, 1 in QC), I created a wiki page documenting guidelines and resources for hosting mapathons specifically for mapping buildings on OSM. I also helped identify the area of interest (AOI) that each mapathon would armchair map. Since I wanted to avoid beginner mappers adding buildings within already mapped regions on OSM, I scanned rural Canadian regions on OSM that I suspected would be unmapped. After identifying a suitable region, I then researched whether or not that region had an already existing open dataset of buildings that could be imported. If there was no existing dataset, I concluded that the region was appropriate for the mapathon. Some universities even reached out to their AOI's municipality to see if there were building footprint open datasets that could be imported instead (in which case they would have selected a different region as importing requires more expertise). The municipalities who stated they did not also expressed support for the initiative! It was warming to see eager mapathon leaders connecting with local municipalities, and even local OSM contributors, to collaborate.

Once the AOIs were picked, I wanted to develop tasks in the Canadian Tasking Manager for the mapathons so that the participants had clear instructions on how to map buildings on OSM with the iD editor. (Note: JOSM would have been preferred because the building_tools plug-in makes adding buildings seamless, but there is a learning curve because JOSM's graphical interface is not user-friendly.) After communicating with a Canadian OSM community member about my intentions, I was granted admin rights to create projects in the Tasking Manager. The image below shows a task I created for North Battleford, SASK.

Data Visualization

After the mapathons took place between Nov. 10 - 17, I wanted to analyze and visualize the contributed data. First, I used Overpass Turbo to see what buildings were contributed in the 8 AOIs that were mapped; so, on Nov. 20, I zoomed into each AOI and used the following query to select the OSM buildings contributed from the mapathons: building=yes and newer:7day. I then opened each query within JOSM and saved them as individual OSM XMLs to ensure I didn't lose the metadata, which would have been the case if I directly saved the queries as GeoJSONs from Overpass Turbo. Next, I used osmtogeojson to convert the OSM XMLs to GeoJSONs for each AOI. I then imported the GeoJSONs into QGIS to assess the data. Some GeoJSONs had point and polygon data, but I only imported the polygon data into QGIS. In QGIS, I calculated the total number of contributors and buildings for each AOI. After analyzing the data, I merged all GeoJSONs together using geojson.io. I saved the merged GeoJSON and then used tippecanoe to convert the GeoJSON into a vector tileset. Lastly, I imported the tileset into Mapbox Studio to create a custom style (although I used Mapbox's Standard style as the starting point).

With all the data cleaned, I was ready to create the data visualization. I used Mapbox's Malaria Mapping visualization as a guide, but instead of running the repo's scripts, I just altered the timestamps in Sublime Text (e.g., 2017-11-17T21:26:38+00:00 to 20171117). After adjusting the timestamps, I used Mapbox GL JS to create the time slider functionality. I also wanted every mapathon participant to see their contributions, so I added a button for each participating organization. This way a mapathon leader or participant can be directed to their AOI and review their contributions and stats. From my interactions with the visualization, it was neat to see how some AOIs had mapping done over multiple days.

Validation

I believe validation is very important for BC2020, and more generally to OSM. It is not just about adding data, but about having data that is reliable. Also, validation is especially important because most mapathon participants were beginner armchair mappers and new to OSM. I wanted to make sure the visualization supports validation efforts, thus I added popups so users could select a building footprint and then be directed to that specific building in the iD editor. Also, whenever a user zooms into a selected AOI, they can click on a button to be directed to the task in the Canadian Tasking Manager, or directed to review the validation documentation I wrote up in the wiki. You can see the visualization here!

Conclusion

My work isn't done yet; it is just beginning. I am working with the universities to conduct validation and I intend on adapting the visualization to handle dynamic data that visualizations all changesets with #bc2020 in the comments. Please let me know if you are intersted in contributing or helping in any capacity! As mentioned above, the success of BC2020 requires a group of active participants!

A user study to understand human cognition influence on data classification quality

Dear participants,

Thank you for helping science and supporting voluntary geographic contents. The contents which have been exclusively collected by voluntary efforts.

Dear participants,

Thank you for helping science and supporting voluntary geographic contents. The contents which have been exclusively collected by voluntary efforts. In these contents, public with local knowledge is the main source of information. Thus, we are (as a computer scientist) concerning with human cognition influence on data classification. Human perceives things differently.

For example, regarding landuse/landcover classification, we could agree on that a parcel of land is covered by grass or water which is an abstract level of classification. However, whether this parcel is a park, a garden, a cemetery, or even a golf court might be perceived differently. Whether this water body is a pond, a lake or a reservoir likely requires finer measures, geographic knowledge, and particular expertise.

Therefore, we developed a study to understand more about how people perceive geographic contents remotely. The study aims to:

  • find out human capabilities to provide landuse data.
  • understand the influence of classification mechanism and schema on data quality.
  • study human behaviors in providing voluntary data, and
  • emphasis challenges of data classification in voluntary contents.

The study takes about 25-30 min. We do not collect any personally identifiable information. Thank you again for your time and your contribution. To participate in the study press here

Don't hesitate to contact me for further comments and feedbacks.

Best regards,

Dr. Ahmed Loai Ali

Announcing my candidacy for OSMF Board Elections 2017

I have been an active OpenStreetMapper since 2007 (and an OSMF member since early 2016), and have been organising Mapping Parties in my local city of Brisbane, Australia since 2008 (although both activities were a bit quiet for a few years in the middle there - sorry about that!). I want to join the OSMF Board to primarily help increase representation from the AU/NZ/South Pacific Region, and ind

I have been an active OpenStreetMapper since 2007 (and an OSMF member since early 2016), and have been organising Mapping Parties in my local city of Brisbane, Australia since 2008 (although both activities were a bit quiet for a few years in the middle there - sorry about that!). I want to join the OSMF Board to primarily help increase representation from the AU/NZ/South Pacific Region, and indigenous populations worldwide, and secondarily to bring my decades of expertise in machine-learning to the upcoming challenges of integrating automated mapping with the local-community focus that should always drive OSM contributions.

Since coming back into OSM solidly in the last 5 months, I have re-caught the mapping bug big time. I have mapped locally, and across the world for the Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team, every single day since July! I am working on re-ramping up my involvement in the project significantly, and I am performing outreach in the local spatial community to increase the awareness of both OSM and the Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team. I particular enjoy teaching and introducing new members to the project, and have run two Missing Maps events, alongside other local Mapping Parties, and I will continue to organise events locally every month.

I am an active participant of HOT mapping efforts, and I believe strongly in the ability of remote mapping to provide a great starting point for local communities to take ownership of their maps. In fact, I believe that this is the first and foremost principle of OpenStreetMap, that if anything is taking away, or discouraging, local ownership of the map it is probably not a good idea.

If elected, I would seek to improve the representation of the needs of Australia, New Zealand and the South Pacific mappers towards the OSMF Board. In particular, I am very interested, and already working towards, how the OpenStreetMap project and communities can extend our community, models and techniques towards indigenous populations around the world. Indigenous populations often look at the world differently than the Euro-centric origins of the OpenStreetMap project, but I believe that some of the valuable lessons already learnt by HOT in how local disadvantaged communities can take ownership of their maps can be extended and improved upon for the indigenous populations of Australia, New Zealand, the South Pacific, and around the world. To be clear, I am not indigenous myself, but I am in already in the process of building relationships to work towards this goal in the Greater Brisbane area, then hopefully across the entire region, and the world!

One other aspect that I would like to bring to the board will be the present and future impact of automation, machine-learning and/or artificial intelligence on OpenStreetMapping, both generally and specifically for Humanitarian Mapping. It might appear that this is antithetical to my belief in local communities owning local maps, but that is why I want to focus on using these powerful techniques in ways that promote, rather than degrade, local ownership.

I have more than a decade of machine-learning experience, and I want to investigate existing techniques in development by Facebook, Development Seed and others, and develop new ones, and I am working with a team at the University of Queensland to begin a study on how these and similar techniques can be opened to all mappers through the Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Tasking Manager and editing tools in a way that ensures that remote and local mappers are assisted directly in our mapping tools, rather than having the output of an algorithm imported widescale without their direct involvement in the process. I am in particular interested in efforts that can focus on getting ML to people on the ground in things like FieldPapers, and in apps like StreetComplete, Kort and OpenMapKit. We need many more of these great simple-survey focussed approaches, and I think ML can help with guiding these efforts.

You can find out more about me at https://dbdean.com, and my OSM profile at https://www.openstreetmap.org/user/David%20Dean contains links to my many OSM-related activities. If you have any questions, or want to get in contact, please don’t hesitate to ask me here, by email at ddean@ieee.org, or at the Election to Board Talk Page at https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Talk:Foundation/AGM17/Election_to_Board, where I will begin to wade through the many existing questions shortly.

Thanks, and Happy Mapping!

This year, with Leeds City Council I developed LeedsAdultLearning.co.uk which is a course finder for about 300 courses by the City and run by a number of providers and dozens of venues. It offers a range of first step courses for adults, such as basic IT skills, ESOL, caring and crafts. Within the first 24 hours of launch it received over 3000 visits, in the first month, it had over 25,000 visits, with the average user spending three minutes on the site.  The code’s up on my LearningInLeeds GitHub repository.

Screenshot-2017-11-22 Find courses near you in Leeds - Adult Learning in Leeds

The project evolved from a LCC Innovation Lab – similar to the Leodis project I also worked on. The key idea is that it was designed to be a pilot or prototype project, small in scope and quick to develop, it would aim to be an aspirational example of how the City can work with the Council and open data to make good IT products. The adult education department were fully engaged with the development and design of the project, giving feedback, priorities. This engagement was really welcome and I think the experts say its crucial to any successful agile project. The department didn’t have any online course finder before so this was bringing something new, and needed to them.

It was featured in the Government Technology News site, the Yorkshire Evening Post, on Made in Leeds TV, and was shown on the big screen in Millennium Square.

Features

  • Automatic imports of courses from Data Mill North (open data site)
  • Full text search with support for sounds like and spelling mistakes
  • Geographical, near searches
  • Bus and walking directions to the start of the course from any point
  • Add to calendar links for course start
  • Showing courses by topics or categories
  • Responsive and mobile friendly.
  • Simple CMS admin UI for staff to update text pages, change records etc
  • Caching of external API requests, front page and CMS pages
  • Recent searches kept

Technology

  • Ruby on Rails
  • Devise and Active Admin for admin UI
  • Postgresql, PostGIS and pg_search for db, geo, full text stuff
  • Bootstrap for front end user interface layout, CSS etc
  • Transport API, Bing Transit, Mapzen for journey planning and geocoding etc

Future

The project could be altered for other organisations, and it could be altered to include the whole range of courses on offer for adults across the city region. I think usage metrics would need to be done to see what users actually do on the site, and whether the journey planning is useful. Adding extra information about course duration,  how many times a week / month etc would be good. Making it more mobile friendly could be looked at, including making a mobile only app.

  • Голосование за предложение по тэгированию Метро началось и завершится 24 ноября. Некоторые участники, включая компании, которые уже картировали станции метро, критикуют предложение в почтовой рассылке по тэгирования.

  • Гейб Эплтон (Gabe Appleton) представил своё предложение по тэгированию времени работы светофоров и ожидает конструктивной критики.

  • Участник BeKri жалуется (de) (автоматический перевод) на немецком форуме о чрезвычайно большом количестве новых пользователей Wheelmap в Мюнхене, которые очень часто вводят POI дважды или отмечают их в неправильных местах. Хольгер (Holger) из Wheelmap обещает новый редактор, который может редактировать только тэги wheelchair=* и toilet:wheelchair=*.

Сообщество

  • Разработчики приложения Jungle Bus твитнули о том, что им нужна помощь в переводе их приложения. Оно будет отображать общественный транспорт и основываться на данных ОСМ

  • Паскаль Нейс (Pascal Neis) сделал интерфейс для подписки на ленту в формате Atom для инструмента Подозрительные изменения в OpenStreetMap в котором в качестве параметка можно указать прямоугольник bbox области. Параметр country теперь можно не ставить. (Источник)

  • Пользователь ChristianA написал сообщение в блоге о недостатках открытых данных. Отсутствие картографирования с выходом на местность и большего количества данных от диванных картографов.

  • Неправильная ссылка wikidata в OSM привела к тому, что район Бронкса был неправильно отмечен на векторных картах от Mapbox.

  • Организация Kathmandu Living Labs пригласила ведущих женщин-лидеров в области технологий ([WLiT(http://wlit.org.np/)) присоединиться к специальной сессии OSM. Участники получили свой первый опыт использования OSM с помощью самостоятельного создания карты OSM. У них также была возможность узнать о картографировании и ближе познакомиться с OSM, а также они узнали о возможных способах добавления данных в глобальную базу данных OSM.

  • В блоге Sterling Geo описывают, как они сравнивали данные Sentinel-2 с данными землепользования из OSM.

Импорты

  • Компания Cybo, которая управляет бизнес справочником организаций, хочет предложить свои данные POI в OpenStreetMap. В почтовых списках рассылки Imports и Talk-us идут два параллельных потока обсуждений. Похоже что координаты организаций были получены с помощью API геокодирования Google и не могут использоваться в OSM по юридическим причинам.

Фонд OpenStreetMap

  • Менее трёх лет назад, была предложена инициатива реорганизовать сроки полномочий членов правления Фонда ОСМ (OSMF) и ограничить их сроки полномочий. Саймон Пул (Simon Poole) пишет в почтовой рассылке Osmf-talk о получении чёткого решения от участников правления OSMF обсудеить это предложение в 2018 году

  • Рабочая группа по данным (Data Working Group) опубликовала отчёт о своей деятельности (PDF) за третий квартал 2017 года.

  • Члены FOSSGIS e.V., де-факто локальное представительство OSM в Германии, обсуждают заявку на грант (de) (автоматический перевод), чтобы получить средства на второй сервер для немецкого сайта API Overpass (overpass-api.de).

  • В этом году встреча членов Фонда OSM состоится 9 декабря в IRC. Подробности можно узнать в электронном письме-приглашении. Должны быть избраны два новых члена совета. Для участия в выборах Члены ОСМФ должны быть зарегистрированы до 25 ноября. Подробности о выборах читайте в OSM-Wiki, а также есть страница для вопросов избирателей..

Карты

  • Разработчики OSM Carto обсуждают должны ли рестораны, пабы и подобные заведения быть представлены в виде небольших коричневых квадратов на 17 уровне масштабирования, как это уже происходит с большинством магазинов (розовым).

  • [1] ADFC (участник ECF) пытается использовать карту на основе OSM, чтобы заставить администрацию Дрездена сделать больше для велосипедистов. Нильс Ларсен, автор карты, сделает инструкцию «как этого достичь» в ближайшее время.

  • Пользователь Komzpa отправил пулл-реквест в стиль OSM Carto, который добавляет рендеринг place=* для области. Некоторые люди опасаются, что это создаст появление двойных надписей для тэгов place=* в OSM (в настоящее время в основном название отображается на точках).

Программное обеспечение

  • Питер Вандер Веннет (Pieter Vander Vennet) показал, как написать свой собственный профиль маршрутизации OsmAnd.

Программирование

  • Ричард Фэрхерст (Richard Fairhurst) в своём дневнике описывает, как отлаживать сценарии Lua в Osm2pgsql и OSRM, не перезапуская при этом импортирование данных при каждой итерации.

А вы знаете …

  • … что вы можете создавать новые точки в JOSM, пока вы находитесь в режиме выдавливания (клавиша X), делая двойной щелчок? Это сохраняет нажатие A и X. (из обсуждения (de) на немецком форуме OSM)

  • … про Последние изменения в OpenStreetMap от Мартина Райфера (Martin Raifer)? На карте отображаются все изменённые объекты за последние семь дней .

Другие “гео” события

  • Сайт CityLab сообщил: Лондонская Оксфорд-стрит станет пешеходной зоной. 800 м автодороги будет закрыто для транспортных средств в 2018 году. Это событие также является вызовом для OpenStreetMap.

  • Интервью от MARTECHSERIES с Хавьером де ла Торре (Javier de la Torre), основателем CARTO (а также основной карты OSM).

  • В своем последнем выпуске испанский онлайн-журнал NOSOLOSIG сообщает о первых картах периода палеолита. Карта, высеченная в камне, которая явно содержит географические ссылки, была найдена во время раскопок в пещере Абаунц недалеко от деревни Аррайтц примерно в 20 км к северу от Памплоны, Испания, и поэтому называется «картой Абаунца». Перевод статьи с deepl стоит прочитать. 😉 (es) (автоматический перевод)

  • Сайт Gulf News сообщает что 2-й «Лувр» был открыт в Абу-Даби. Конечно, он уже отмечен в OSM. Но похоже тэгирование ещё не завершено. 😉

  • Theodolite, приложение для “Дополненной реальности”, которое согласно утверждению prMac содержит отличные данные OSM, даже в «совершенно случайных местах», будет работать на iPhone X.

  • Турист из Милана застрял со своим транспортным средством в средневековой аллее в Комо, потому что он доверял имеющейся карте больше, чем своим глазам. Данная карта была не из OpenStreetMap, но этот инцидент вдохновил местную группу OSM на повторную проверку области для возможных ошибок.
