come importare il JSON file in appybuilder per fare le app

Sito per costruire app: gold.appybuilder.com

Chiamata GET come riferimento per osservare il file JSON da processare:

Chiamata GET come riferimento per osservare il file JSON da processare:
https://www.overpass-api.de/api/interpreter?data=[out:json];node[natural=tree](45.36386820715566,9.692811369895935,45.36502340932776,9.69470500946045);out%20meta;

Per "visualizzarlo", andare qui e copiarlo dentro: https://vanya.jp.net/vtree/

Preparare un Bottone (Button1) e un Web (Web1) nell'interfaccia utente.
Nei blocchi costruire il GET del JSON file così (l'URL è quello indicato prima)
Poi inserire il blocco che gestisce il file che arriva dalla Rete. Per ora predisporre delle Label per capire come funziona la logica:


Lat e Lon verranno poi usate per definire (e piazzare) i marker sulla Map1 (da inserire nella interfaccia Utente).



Occorre apprendere il concetto di lista e lista di liste.

Infatti il blocco fondamentale prende un JSON e lo trasforma in una lista di liste  (vedere cosa arriva nella Label3 per capirci, i delimitatori sono le parentesi tonde):



La Lista principale contiene un solo elemento (con dentro le altre liste).
Pertanto si estrarrà l'unico elemento di indice 1.

Questo unico elemento è a sua volta una lista , fatta di due elementi:
la parola "elements" e (il resto).

Prendiamo il secondo elemento (quindi indice 2) , cioè il resto.

Il resto è una lista di 13 elementi, gli alberi.
Ogni elemento è una lista a sua volta : estraiamo nell'esempio il secondo elemento, quello che inizia con (changeset 76247509) per intenderci.

Infine, per cambiare un po', sfruttiamo la possibilità di estrarre info con il blocco "look up in pairs", così è più leggibile.

Una volta capita la struttura delle liste di liste si può procedere al ciclo for che crea i marker sulla Map1 (figura precedente), uno per ognuno dei 13 alberi:

State of the Map Asia 2019 - Dhaka, Bangladesh

The first time to join State of the Map was one of my dreams since joining the Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team Indonesia, and finally the dream was realized this year is State of the Map Asia in Dhaka, Bangladesh.

The first time to join State of the Map was one of my dreams since joining the Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team Indonesia, and finally the dream was realized this year is State of the Map Asia in Dhaka, Bangladesh. Why be one of my dreams? Because this State of the Map is an international conference to share knowledge and experience in contributing to the mapping that uses OpenStreetMap or other data. In accordance with the expectations, I also have the opportunity to follow the State of the Map Asia through a scholarship program.

Beberapa peserta yang mendapat beasiswa

When I got the announcement that I received the scholarship it was a pleasure and I rushed to prepare the necessary needs to go to Bangladesh. This opportunity was also obtained by Silvia Dwi Wardhani and Tri Selasa Pagianti, they are my college from HOT-ID office. The first day arrived in Dhaka, Bangladesh at Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport at 01.30 am the Dhaka time I met also with two scholarship recipients who were waiting for pickup to get to the accommodation from the Committee of SotM Asia 2019, namely Monica (from Phillipines) and Suthakaran (from Sri Lanka).

Tim Indonesia

State of the Map Asia 2019 lasts two days, on 1-2 November 2019. During the events there will be various sessions ranging from talk, lightening talk, workshops and discussion panel. My session was on the first day at 16.30 pm at the Main Auditorium. My sessions are talk-type titled “Quality Assurance for Indonesia Road Mapping”. My sessions about my experience as a Quality Assurance in Indonesia Road Mapping project. The project cooperates between HOT-ID and Facebook, which is to map the roads in Indonesia using Machine Learning. What a wonderful experience I have in this year by following the State of the Map Asia 2019.

Presentasi di State of the Map Asia 2019

The amazing experience I get is to dare to speak English in front of the crowd of international class, sharing experience in mapping using OpenStreetMap and adding to international friendships network. A lot of new science I get on this occasion.

State of the Map Asia

Thanks to Sawan Shariar as the chairman of Bangladesh Foundation OpenStreetMap, the organizers and volunteers who have compiled the event well, from the invitation until the last event. I hope to attend the next State of the Map both in Asia or Global.

Hi 😃

Currently OSM is the best outdoor map in Sweden but unfortunately a lot of paths is still missing in my area. I would love to use your heatmap to help me trace and visit new paths and add them to the map.

I look forward to you response and hope that you will give back to the community by allowing this use of the wonderful heatmap.

Cheers pangoSE

Hello,

Thanks for your interest in using Strava! If you’re interested to learn more about how Strava data is used for city planning, you can learn more through the Strava Metro site.

Hope that helps!

Regards, Scarlett Strava Support Team”


Any suggestions? They refer me to a service “Strava Metro” that is only available behind a paywall and do not offer a heatmap at all.

Ideas for questions to ask:

  1. You did not answer my question. Am I permitted to trace from your heatmap - yes or no? If you want attribution for allowing us to trace I would be happy to add Strava to our list of contributions: https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Contributors
  2. Strava Metro access would be nice, would you be willing to provide that data for free to OSM users to trace after?

Teslas Navigation für autonomes Fahren vor und nach einem Edit auf OSM 😉
1 | © Teslamotorsclub – Kartendaten © OpenStreetMap-Mitwirkende

Mapping

  • SelfishSeahorse schlägt mit seinem Proposal die Erfassung von Fußgängerspuren auf Straßen vor, die durch markierte Spuren gekennzeichnet sind.
  • Das Unternehmen StreetCred, von Randy Meech nach dem Aus von MapZen gegründet, stellt OSM seine POI-Daten als MVT-Tileserver zur Verfügung, der zum Beispiel im iD-Editor ganz leicht als Layer eingefügt werden kann.
  • Hanikatu sucht im Forum nach Ideen, wie er mehrere Objekte, die an der selben Straßenlaterne befestigt sind, erfassen könnte. Die meisten Antworten schlagen die Nutzung von separaten Nodes vor, die man zum Beispiel mit einer type=node-Relation zusammenfassen könnte.
  • Amazon-Logistics-Mapper nehmen mittlerweile auch Kontakt mit lokalen Mappern auf, wie sich an diesem Änderungssatz in Nottingham, UK zeigt, bei dem sie einen seit 11 Jahre fehlerhaften Access-Tag einer Hauptstraße entdeckt hatten.
  • OpenSnowMap.org bietet nun eine vollständigere Ansicht von täglichen und wöchentlichen Änderungen an Skipisten und anderen Wintersport-Objekten in OpenStreetMap.
  • Das Proposal zu leisure=sunbathing_area hat das Ziel von einer 74%-Mehrheit knapp verfehlt. Insgesamt gab es 18 Stimmen, wovon 72% für „Ja“ waren.
  • Das Tagging-Proposal contact:phone or phone hat mit 46 Ja- und 60-Nein-Stimmen, die erforderliche Dreiviertelmehrheit verfehlt. Das Proposal wollte contact:phone=* zugunsten des älteren und weitaus häufigeren phone=*für veraltet erklären. Das Thema ist seit einem Jahrzehnt umstritten.
  • OpenStreetMap India verweist auf Twitter auf den Erfolg von OSM Kerala (Indien), die die lokale Regierung überzeugen konnten, Crowdsourced-Mapping durch den Start des Mapathon Keralam zu unterstützen. The Hindu, Indiens drittgrößte englische Zeitung, berichtete darüber auf ihrer Website.
  • Luzandro hat uMap-Karten mit möglicherweise neuen oder fehlenden Straßen und Orten in Österreich auf Grundlage von BEV-Adressen erstellt.
  • Auf Ilya Zverevs Vorschlag (ru) hin werden nun die Grenzübergänge in Russland mit Hilfe von MapRoulette detaillierter gemappt.

Community

  • Tahira berichtet, dass Heidelbergs erster „Climathon“ am EMBL mit einem 24-Stunden-Hackathon im Rahmen des „globalen Climathons“ vom 26.-27. Oktober stattfand. Die Teilnehmer arbeiteten als Teams an fünf Herausforderungen, die alle den Klimawandel zum Thema hatten. Der erste Platz ging je an die Teams BikeBuddy und Spring Up. Beide Gewinnerteams bestanden aus Mitgliedern der Abteilung GIScience der Universität Heidelberg. Das BikeBuddy-Team arbeitete an einer von HeiGIT.org vorgestellten Herausforderung, bei der es darum ging, attraktive Fahrradrouten zu identifizieren, die Menschen dazu zu ermutigen, lieber mit dem Fahrrad als mit dem Auto zu fahren. Inspiriert wurde dies durch die Recherche zu Pleasant Routing bei GIScience / HeiGIT. Der Hauptfaktor, auf den sich das Team konzentrierte, war diesmal die Sicherheit der Radrouten (Beleuchtung, Nähe zu Straßenbahnschienen). Die Daten wurden aus OpenStreetMap extrahiert und prototypisch in OpenRouteService.org integriert.
  • Branko Kokanović schreibt in einem Blogeintrag über seinen Fortschritt bei der Nutzung von Wohnungs-Open-Data in Serbien. (automatische Übersetzung)
  • OpenStreetMap US blickt in einem neuen Newsletter auf den vergangenen Monat Oktober zurück.

OpenStreetMap Foundation

  • Dorothea Kazazi informiert die Community über das Prozedere und die Details der bevorstehenden Vorstandswahl der OpenStreetMap Foundation während der 13. Hauptversammlung. Die Frist, um sich zur Wahl zu stellen, endete am 10. November 2019. Um mit abstimmen zu können, müsstest Du bis zum 14. November 2019 Mitglied der OSMF werden. Zum Zeitpunkt der Erstellung dieser Zeilen kandidierten acht Personen. Die Sitze von Kate Chapman, Heather Leson, Mikel Maron und Frederik Ramm stehen bei dieser Wahl zur Verfügung, wobei nur Mikel Maron für eine Wiederwahl kandidiert. Wir ermutigen alle, Mitglied der OSMF zu werden und daran teilzunehmen. Wer sich den Mitgliedsbeitrag nicht leisten kann oder keine Möglichkeit hat, Gelder ins Ausland zu überweisen, interessiert sich vielleicht für das Fee Waiver Programm der OSMF.
  • Frederik Ramm informiert die Mitglieder der OpenStreetMap Foundation darüber, dass der Vorstand einige Änderungen der Satzung vorschlägt, die hauptsächlich mit dem Massenbeitritt von Mitarbeitern eines Unternehmens vor den letztjährigen OSMF-Vorstandswahl zusammenhängen. Neben den AoA-Änderungen, die ein Quorum von 75 Prozent der „Normal Member“ OSMF-Mitglieder bei der bevorstehenden Hauptversammlung erreichen müssen, wird auch vorgeschlagen, die derzeitige Gebührenbefreiung der OSMF-Mitgliedschaft aufgrund von „finanzieller Härte“ durch eine allgemeine Befreiung für Community-Mitglieder zu ersetzen, die einen „beträchtlichen Beitrag“ geleistet haben. Die OSMF stellte eine PDF-Datei mit den Einzelheiten der Änderungen zur Verfügung.
  • Christoph Hormann (imagico) gibt den Kandidaten für die anstehende OSMF-Vorstandswahl in seinem Benutzer-Blog einige Ratschläge. Darin geht es vor allem um Formulierungen von Stellungnahmen und das Beantworten von allgemeinen Fragen an die Bewerber.
  • Joost Schouppe schreibt über sein erstes Jahr als OSMF-Vorstandsmitglied, was ihn an OSM im Allgemeinen beunruhigt und wie schwer die Belastung für den Vorstand aus nur 7 Freiwilligen ist. Auch die anschließende Diskussion ist sehr interessant.

Veranstaltungen

  • Oliver Rudzick erinnert auf der Mailingliste Talk-de an das 13. FOSSGIS-OSM-Hackingevent, das vom 29. November bis 01. Dezember im Linuxhotel Essen stattfinden wird.
  • Bis zum 17. November können noch Vorträge für die jährliche deutschsprachige Konferenz über OSM, die FOSSGIS-Konferenz, eingereicht werden.

Humanitarian OSM

Ausbildung/Schulung

  • Das IDEAL-VGI-Projekt zielt darauf ab, sich auf die Herausforderungen freiwilliger geografischer Informationen (via OSM) für die Landnutzungsklassifizierung und große Erdbeobachtungsdaten zu konzentrieren. Das Projekt ist eine Kooperation zwischen der GIScience Research Group der Universiät Heidelberg und der Technischen Universität Berlin.

Karten

  • Auf Twitter berichtete (fr) (automatische Übersetzung) Infos-Réseaux.com, dass der Meilenstein von 1000 in OSM erfassten Stromkreisen des französischen Stromnetzes erreicht wurde.
  • Diesen Monat läuft auf Twitter die #30DayMapChallenge, bei der Benutzer von ihnen erstellte Karten teilen. Darunter sind auch viele Karten mit OpenStreetMap-Daten, von denen Spanholz einige in einem imgur-Album zusammengestellt hat. Initiator ist Topi Tjukanov.

switch2OSM

  • Die App Strava, die speziell für Läufer und Radfahrer entwickelt wurde, setzt OSM als Kartenmaterial ein.
  • [1] Der Tesla-Fahrer Armee_1 hat bemerkt, dass sich die Routenführung der Smart-Summon-Anwendung seines Autos, die den Tesla auf Parkplätzen autonom zum Besitzer fahren lässt, verändert, wenn er auf OSM die Parkplatzwege bearbeitet.

Open-Data

  • Théophile Merlière vom Etalab-Team berichtet (fr), wie er durch ein paar mehrstündige Spaziergänge eine georeferenzierte Adressdatenbank erzeugt hat.
  • Dr. Adrian Mallory hat eine Stellungnahme verfasst, in der er zum gemeinsamen Handeln aufruft, um Big Data zu einem breiteren sozialen Gut zu machen, und nicht als Treibstoff für die überreichen, geheimen Formen der Manipulation, die für weitere soziale Ungleichheit sorgen.

Releases

  • Die Version 19.10 von JOSM wurde veröffentlicht. Die Hauptneuerungen sind die Möglichkeit, in TMS-Layern bis zur Stufe 24 zu zoomen, der Import von GeoJSON-Dateien und das Ende des Supports von https-Remote-Control.
  • Bitte, nutzt zur Information der Release-Änderungen aller OSM-Software den Thread „Update der OSM Software List“ im deutschen Forum. Wambacher ist bemüht, diesen Auszug aus der OSM Software Watchlist immer am Wochenende zu aktualisieren. Zum Beispiel ist die Rel. 2.0 der App Windy Maps aufgeführt, dort werden OSM basierte Online- wie Offline-Karten mit vielen POI, Wander und Radwege angezeigt. Wiki, Foto und Ausflugtipps inklusive. Jetzt mit verbessertem Routing mit Sprachsteuerung und Tracking.

Open Data Camp

I went to Open Data Camp 7 last weekend. It’s an event I’ve been hoping to get along to for years now. Always lots of interesting looking twitter chat coming out of it. But this year it happened in London, and I managed to be on the ball getting a (free) ticket before they sold […]

I went to Open Data Camp 7 last weekend.

It’s an event I’ve been hoping to get along to for years now. Always lots of interesting looking twitter chat coming out of it. But this year it happened in London, and I managed to be on the ball getting a (free) ticket before they sold out.

I hadn’t particularly realised it’s the “unconference” format. It reminded me of the London “wherecamp” events I was involved in once upon time, although OpenDataCamp is even more unconferency. I mean the sessions were all very conversational. Didn’t see anyone with prepared slides, and often heard less from the session leader than from other people chiming in.

It was also different from wherecamp because there was a “pitching” session at the beginning to establish all the ideas. Those were then written up as a very busy schedule with four/five parallel tracks! Here’s all the sessions listed. In fact that has links on to more notes on each of the sessions too. Here’s the session choices I made:

  • “Bad data” – Discussing the precision of library visitor stats. I gave the example of bad data in company registries!
  • “Quantifying value of open data” – How to measure/justify the value of open data by tracking usage. The great unsolvable problem.
  • “Sorting out configuration so we can do cool things” – Really boiling down to: software can be hard to install and get working. Another great unsolvable problem.
  • “SPARQL 101” – A very quick intro to linked data querying. SPARQL playground and epimorphics qlassroom.
  • “What is non-commercial?” – Or does non-commercial really count as Open Data, or what other ways are there to avoid giving away all your value? As applied to the NHS!
  • “Open Procurement data for less carbon” – Influencing contract and procurement processes to (be more open and) reduce carbon emissions
  • “Joy Diversion” – An Open Data Manchester idea which I was always curious about. Walk round the block looking out for joyful serdipidousness. Quite fun. Quite similar to OpenStreetMap mapping (not as good!)
  • “OpenStreetMap” – My Session! I tried to introduce OpenStreetMap editing and using. Mentioning tags quickly led to questions and conversational diversions (as documented in the session notes) That made for an interesting different way of presenting it!
  • “Learning from our data mistakes / Open data horror stories” – People confessing failed attempts to open data, or opening data leading to other problems.

Some of the discussions gave me a strong sense of deja vu. We’re still collectively bashing our head against some problems of open data which feel unsolvable (not that I didn’t enjoy discussing them anyway!).

I also enjoyed bringing some OpenStreetMap (hobby) and OpenCorporates (day job) perspectives to discussions. I just realised I have over a decade of open data experience in both hobby/volunteering with OpenStreetMap and in my career spanning CloudMade, TransportAPI and OpenCorporates now, but I don’t always think of these things in abstract open data terms. My overriding impression of Open Data Camp was an enjoyable feeling of being among open data people again!

Die Farbe von landuse=farmland im deutschen Kartenstil

Hallo zusammen,

im OSM Standardstil wurde kürzlich die Farbe von landuse=farmland geändert.

Im deutschen Stil hatte ich den schon immer etwas anders nämlich heller und damit weniger deutlich sichtbar. Nun hat sich das etwas angenähert.

Nun frage ich euch was ihr denkt.

Übernahme der neuen Farbe aus dem OSM Standardstil oder beibehalten des bisherigen Farbtones?

I did not expect I will be going to my first international conference so soon after attending Pista ng Mapa in Dumaguete City, Philippines last August. I almost lost the opportunity to attend the conference because of the passport and visa processing delays I encountered. Fortunately, I was able to! I guess lady luck was on my side.

SotM Asia 2019 scholars [Scholars of SotM Asia 2019; ©State of the Map Asia Instagram]

In my opinion, my SotM Asia 2019 experience began as soon as my flight landed at Dhaka’s airport and I met my fellow scholars at Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport. I’m so happy I became friends with Tri, Yeni and Silvi, my new friends from Indonesia and also my co-scholars for the conference.

Attending the conference was nerve-racking for me as a first-timer. During the first day, mixed anticipation and nervousness were what I felt because I was in a foreign land by myself and I’ll be meeting many people who came from different countries.

Alt text [From left to right: Sir David Garcia, Silvi, Tri, Yeni, and me; ©Yeni]

Day 1 started with a bang with a very entertaining keynote presentation from Sir David Garcia, who was actually my upperclassman (we came from the same student organization, geography department and GIS professor!). There were a few delays and schedule changes for the sessions after the opening, but everything was worth it. The sessions and speakers were really good. I enjoyed listening the most to the Map with AI presentation by Dr. David Yang from Facebook because I’m really anticipating mapping building footprints using AI! My friends Yeni and Tri also presented during day 1 and I and Silvi cheered for them!

The food and snacks served during lunch and tea break for day 1 were delicious. I liked the pastry with chocolate the most, but what made the food better was talking with people about random topics we were interested in to get to know each other better.

After the sessions for day 1, we (Tri, Silvi, Yeni, and me) went to eat dinner near our accommodations and got to experience riding the rickshaw for the first time. That rickshaw experience was unforgettable for me. I experienced mixed emotions; fun, rush, thrill, nervousness, anticipation, and fear (of falling from the rickshaw). I don’t think I fit on the seat. Either the seat is too small for me or I was too big for the seat, and I’m not exaggerating. HAHAHA. Guess I can blame my height for that. I also had a good laugh with Tri, Yeni, and Silvi because Tri kept on screaming.

I started day 2 with startling calmness that even I can’t believe myself. Usually, I would wake up with butterflies in my stomach on the day of my presentation, but for some reason, I was not.

Alt text [Panel discussion of YouthMappers chapters in Asia]

During the morning, I got roped into a panel discussion with the representatives of other YouthMappers chapters in Asia. We were asked about our chapters’ activities and experiences. It was very interesting to know about how the other chapters are doing and what are they currently up to.

Alt text

After lunch, I had my presentation. I presented our chapter; starting from a bit of background about how the organization was established to its members and activities. I gave a summary of our events and also introduced to the audience our chapter’s current project, the Building Resilient Communities in Bohol Through OpenStreetMap. I was glad I got to share what we in the UP Resilience Institute YouthMappers do. I felt so achieved I got to represent and present our beloved chapter. I think the only thing I regretted was I did not manage to attend Sir David Garcia’s workshop since we were having the panel session while his session was ongoing.

Alt text [©State of the Map Asia 2019 Facebook page]

The conference was both tiring (since it was jam-packed with sessions) and invigorating. Every effort and sweat paid up in the end because I got to meet new people and learn new things.

Salute to the organizers who worked hard for the conference to happen. Special mention to Sawan, who was the scholars’ coordinator, for being patient and helpful for us. Thank you!

Attending State of the Map Asia in Dhaka was so rewarding! Sadly, I did not have enough extra time to explore Dhaka, but maybe I will in the future. I’m looking forward to visiting Bangladesh again!

Mapping

  • SelfishSeahorse proposes the tagging of lanes on roads which are explicitly marked for pedestrians.
  • StreetCred is a company founded by Randy Meech after MapZen folded. They now provide their POI data with an MVT-Tileserver, which can be used in iD as an extra custom layer.
  • Hanikatu asked (de) (automatic translation) how to tag objects that have more than one property. An example provided was multiple items attached to a single street light. Suggestions ranged from using multiple nodes through to using a type=node relation.
  • Amazon Logistics traces unearthed a short way, part of a major inner-city one-way system, which has had incorrect access tagging for nearly 11 years.
  • Opensnowmap.org now provides a more complete view of daily and weekly changes to ski pistes and winter sports-related elements in OpenStreetMap.
  • Voting concluded for the new feature proposal leisure=sunbathing_area. There were 18 votes in total and 2 non-voting comments. “Yes” got 13 votes or 72% which is just short of the 75% required for approval.
  • The tagging proposal contact:phone or phone missed the required three-quarters majority with 46 “yes” and 60 “no” votes. The proposal wanted to declare contact:phone=* obsolete in favour of the older and much more common phone=*. The topic has been controversial for a decade.
  • OpenStreetMap India pointed, on Twitter, to the success of OSM Kerala (India) in convincing the local government to support crowdsourced mapping by launching the Mapathon Keralam. The Hindu, India’s third-largest English newspaper, carries the story on their website.
  • Luzandro has created (automatic translation) a map of possible new or missing roads in Austria based on BEV’s register of addresses.
  • On Ilya Zverev’s suggestion (automatic translation) Russian border crossings are now being mapped. The mapping is being carried out with the help of a MapRoulette challenge.

Community

  • Tahira reported that Heidelberg’s first climathon event took place at EMBL with a 24 hour hackathon from 26 to 27 October as part of the “global Climathon”. Participants worked in teams on five challenges, all with an aspect of addressing climate change. First place was awarded to the BikeBuddy and Spring Up teams. Both winning teams comprised members from the GIScience research group Heidelberg University. The BikeBuddy team worked on a challenge, presented by HeiGIT.org, to identify attractive cycling routes so as to encourage people to travel by bike rather than car. This challenge was inspired by the research on pleasant routing at GIScience/HeiGIT. The main factor that the team focused on was the safety of cycling routes (street lights, etc.). The data was extracted from OpenStreetMap and integrated into a prototype using OpenRouteService.org.
  • Branko Kokanović published a blog post(sr)(automatic translation) about his progress using open data about apartments in Serbia.
  • OpenStreetMap US published Issue #1 of a brand new newsletter to share OpenStreetMap US activities and news from around the US and the world.

OpenStreetMap Foundation

  • Dorothea Kazazi informed the community about the procedure and the details of the upcoming OpenStreetMap Foundation board elections during the 13th Annual General Meeting. The deadline for putting yourself forward for election was 10 November 2019. If you want to vote, you have to become a member of the OSMF by 14 November 2019. At the time of writing, eight candidates have been nominated. The seats of Kate Chapman, Heather Leson, Mikel Maron and Frederik Ramm are available in this election with only Mikel Maron running for re-election. We encourage everyone to become member of the OSMF and participate. If you can’t afford the membership fee or you cannot transfer funds abroad, we’d like to point you to the OSMF Fee Waiver Program.
  • Frederik Ramm informed the members of the OpenStreetMap Foundation that the board suggests a couple of changes to the Articles of Association, mainly related to the mass signup of employees of one company ahead of last year’s board election. Besides the AoA changes, which are required to pass a quorum of 75 percent of OSMF’s Normal Members during the upcoming Annual General Meeting, it is also suggested that the current “financial hardship” fee waiver for OSMF membership be replaced by a general fee waiver for community members with a “sizeable contribution”. The OSMF Board provided a pdf-file with details of the changes.
  • Christoph Hormann (imagico) provides some advice for candidates for the upcoming OSMF board elections. The advice is particularly directed at the formulation of position statements and answering the general slate of questions posed to candidates.
  • Joost Schouppe wrote about his first year as an OSMF board member. Topics covered include: what worries him about OSM in general, how heavy the burden weighs on just seven volunteers, and missing procedures. An interesting read and an interesting discussion as a follow-up.

Humanitarian OSM

Education

  • The IDEAL-VGI project aims to focus on the challenges of volunteered geographic information for land use classification and big earth observation data. The project is a collaboration between Heidelberg University’s GIScience Research Group and the Technical University of Berlin.

Maps

  • Infos-Réseaux.com tweeted (fr) (automatic translation) that the milestone of 1000 circuits of the French electrical network mapped, was reached.
  • The 30 day Map Challenge, hashtag #30daymapchallenge, is running throughout November. Many participants are using OpenStreetMap data. Spanholz has linked to an imgur album of selected images. The initiator of the challenge is Topi Tjukanov.

switch2OSM

  • The Strava app, which was specially developed for runners and cyclists, uses OSM as map material. Strava has recently introduced a new map rendering that emphasises the details that runners and cyclists most want to see.
  • [1] The Tesla driver Army_1 noticed that the route guidance of his car’s Smart Summon application, which allows the Tesla to drive autonomously to the owner’s location in parking lots, changes when he edits parking lanes on OSM.

Open Data

  • Théophile Merlière, of the Etalab team, reports (fr) on the improvement and correction of errors in an official geolocated address database based on three walks of a few hours each and its publication on the BAN (Base Adresse Nationale) of France.
  • Dr Adrian Mallory has written an opinion piece calling for collective action to make big data a force for wider social good, not as fuel for the hyper-wealthy, secretive forms of manipulation and further social inequality.

Releases

  • JOSM 19.10 has been released. Major enhancements in this version are allowing zoom levels up to 24 in TMS layers, dropping support for https remote control, and adding GeoJSON importing.
  • Please watch the thread “Update der OSM Software List“, in the German Forum, to stay informed about release changes of all OSM Software. Wambacher tries to update this excerpt from the OSM Software Watchlist every weekend. For example the Rel. 2.0 of the App Windy Maps is listed, where OSM-based online and offline maps with many POI, hiking and cycling paths are displayed. Wiki, photo and excursion tips included. Now with improved routing with voice control and tracking.

OSM in the media

  • TV5Monde reports about the public transport mapping project in Bamako, Mali. Read more about the project on the wiki page (fr) (automatic translation).

Other “geo” things

  • Archie Archambault is a craft mapper who believes that maps should be made by surveying and “being within the parameters of the space”. Archie is working on a project to create artistic maps that give you the “gist” of cities around the world.
  • Victor shows (es) (automatic translation) how to load free maps onto your Garmin Fenix or EDGE.
  • Interested in attending a Wizards Unite event? Well, you’re too late for this one, but of interest to mappers is that the locations used were based on libraries mapped in OSM.
  • In response to the third “Tokyo Public Transportation Open Data Challenge” Akihiko Kusanagi has built a real-time 3D digital map of Tokyo’s public transport system.

My First Experience in State of The Map Asia

I was very excited since I first knew that I was one of the people who got the opportunity to attend the State of the Map Asia through a scholarship program. This year’s State of the Map Asia was held in Dhaka, Bangladesh on November 1-2, 2019. Then I rushed prepared the documents required so I can get my visa processed as soon as possible.

I was very excited since I first knew that I was one of the people who got the opportunity to attend the State of the Map Asia through a scholarship program. This year’s State of the Map Asia was held in Dhaka, Bangladesh on November 1-2, 2019. Then I rushed prepared the documents required so I can get my visa processed as soon as possible. Fortunately, there were other two scholars from my office, HOT Indonesia, They are Yeni Primasari and Tri Selasa so that we can prepare visa supporting documents and apply for the visa together.

The State of the Map Asia 2019 was held at the Krishibid Institution Bangladesh (KIB) Dhaka, Bangladesh. The event was attended by various participants from students, academics, companies and the OSM community who were interested in open data and OpenStreetMap. Every day there are many sessions held in parallel in different rooms. There are several types of sessions available such as presentations, lightning talk, panelist discussions, and workshops. Sometimes I feel confused every time I have to choose which session I will attend because almost all sessions offer very interesting themes. Group Photo Session

I also have the opportunity to share one of the projects that are currently running in Indonesia, namely Indonesia Road Mapping that collaborated between HOT Indonesia with Facebook. I filled one of the Lightning Talk sessions with the title The Importance of Ground Truth Method in Indonesia Road Mapping Project. That was my first experience to be able to share knowledge about mapping in front of extraordinary people in English. I’m also very grateful to my friends and other conference participants who are already sharing their knowledge and practice. Really through this event, I was reminded that out there are still a lot of great people, creative people and people who have worked hard to build a mapping community in their area. Many positive things can be taken and learned, making me feel to keep learning and working.

Here, I met and became acquainted with many new people from another country and I’m so happy with that. And then, I also thankful for Sawan Shariar, and the entire committee, volunteer, and organizer who made this great event. I am very grateful to have the chance to attend this conference. I would be very glad if I have another chance to attend the next SotM Asia 2020 that will be held in Colombo, Sri Lanka or another conference in the future.

Warm greetings,

Merge selection between layers in JOSM

JOSM is my favorite editor! It has so many functions and plugins that almost every task you can think of is covered (besides splitting multipolygons, but work has started to remedy that).

Today I learned how to add new nature reservations from a geojson layer by merging selections from it into my osm data layer.

  1. Select the new element in the json layer
  2. press ct

Today I learned how to add new nature reservations from a geojson layer by merging selections from it into my osm data layer.

  1. Select the new element in the json layer
  2. press ctrl+shift+m or edit->merge selection
  3. switch layers and edit the tags
  4. upload

Easy peasy!


JOSM core now support importing geoJSON

The latest stable release now support geoJSON

Hooray!

Why is this fantastic? Because it means that I can now avoid Shapefiles when exporting from open government data from QGIS and export to “geoJSON with newlines” instead.

//Edit I later found out that KML is better because the attributes of polygons was removed in the geoJSON export.

iD editor: It is time for us to end this abusive relationship

It all started out nice enough, the Knight Foundation paying for a team of professional developers at Mapbox to develop a new, user-friendly website editor to replace the ageing, Flash-based Potlatch. This brought us the iD editor which for roughly six years now has been the default editor we present to new users, and the user friendliness of this endeavour is certainly unparalleled in OSM.

It all started out nice enough, the Knight Foundation paying for a team of professional developers at Mapbox to develop a new, user-friendly website editor to replace the ageing, Flash-based Potlatch. This brought us the iD editor which for roughly six years now has been the default editor we present to new users, and the user friendliness of this endeavour is certainly unparalleled in OSM.

To new users, this editor represents our project and our community. If this editor tells them that they should do something this way or that, they will assume that “OpenStreetMap wants me to do this”. The iD editor is the only editor endorsed by the OSM Foundation in this way, and with great power comes great responsibility.

A responsibility that the iD team is increasingly unable to shoulder.

There wasn’t much to complain during the early years except perhaps the lack of support for one thing or another, cases where everyone including the developers agreed that improvements need to be made. But now that the basic functionality is there, iD developers are starting to believe they have a mandate for more. Rather than just giving users a tool to contribute to OSM, they are directing users to contribute in certain, very specific ways - preferring one tag over another, using one channel of communication with the community instead of another, “upgrading” the work of other users according to rules set out by the editor developers alone, striking deals with commercial validation platforms, loading auxiliary data from Facebook without the user’s consent or any previous discussion, and so on.

Pushback from the community against these unilateral decisions is met with abject arrogance. Issues opened on the project issue tracker are closed as “too heated”. Benign suggestions to discuss the problem are batted away; the attitude of the iD team seems to be either that they know better what is good for us, or that we’re free to go if we don’t like what they do. Even community members who are otherwise full of praise for corporate involvement seem to despair at the presumptuous attitude and lack of community consultation of the iD project.

We are not that desperate for love that we need to continue this abusive relationship. Let us stop using that “official” version of iD today, and switch to the community version of iD maintained by Frédéric Rodrigo (see also his tweet). With his experience from a decade of working with our community and respecting community consensus in Osmose and other projects, Frédéric knows how to run a project like that without everyone burning out because of “too heated” discussions.

Will this cut us off from new developments made by the main iD developers? Absolutely. But I think an editor that respects our community consensus is more important than having a nice auto-complete that ensures the correct spelling of an American fast-food franchise outlet.

PS: I’ve not been naming names on purpose. If you have contributed to iD development and managed to refrain from showering anyone who asked for a change with condescension, good for you; sadly it doesn’t change the fact that decision-making in iD has become unstuck from what the community expects of software they imbue with the privilege of being “the official editior”. And the community is not the five people going to lunch with the developer.
