Не совсем стандартный способ собрать адреску с помощью Vespucci

♦ Мобильный редактор Vespucci имеет ряд преимуществ по сравнению с программами записывающими трек вроде OSMtracker. Так например вы имеете возможность самостоятельно указать точку или контур куда поставить заметку (а может даже теги). На бинговских снимках видны крыши домов, что очень помогает при сборе адрески, есть специальные подложки указывающие ошибки и другую полезную информацию.

♦ Мобильный редактор Vespucci имеет ряд преимуществ по сравнению с программами записывающими трек вроде OSMtracker. Так например вы имеете возможность самостоятельно указать точку или контур куда поставить заметку (а может даже теги). На бинговских снимках видны крыши домов, что очень помогает при сборе адрески, есть специальные подложки указывающие ошибки и другую полезную информацию.

Однако мой первый опыт сбора адрески показал что не всё так уж хорошо. Выделение контуров - ужасная мука, точки всё время оказываются под пальцами и разъезжаются чуть проведёшь пальцем и т.д. В результате я придумал небольшой рецепт как сделать сбор адрески удобнее, который, я надеюсь поможет начинающим маперам.

Сперва потребуется небольшая подготовка. Сначала зайдите в настройки и укажите фоновой картой бинг или мапбокс (тут уж что есть, главное чтобы были видны крыши домов). Затем в пункте "Наложение" выберите "OSMInspector: Addresses", это позволит сразу видеть дома без адрески и не тратить время на сбор того что уже есть. Никаких объектов из базы скачивать не нужно (на крайний случай можно скачать какой-нибудь один домик), они будут только мешать. Снимки места которое будете обходить скачайте заранее ибо через медленный мобильный интернет они могут грузится мучительно долго. Теперь при обходе маркер вашего местоположения и цвета и форма крыш помогут сопоставить дом перед вами с домом на снимке. Сделайте долгий тап и создайте точку, выберите адресные теки и укажите только номер дома. Это ускорит нанесение адрески до, буквально, 3-4 тапов. В результате получится что-то вроде того что на скриншоте выше.

Теперь вернувшись домой вы можете открыть JOSM и спокойно проставить номера домов подглядывая в Vespucci.

Данный способ идеально подходит для пеших обходов, поскольку позволяет надёжно сопоставить номер дома с координатами, но в то же время требует концентрации внимания на экране телефона пока вы ставите адрес, и потому не подходит для вело и авто обхода. Ну и конечно данный способ костыльный и некрасивый, но тут уж дело вкуса.

Belarus in Belarusian + bilingual / trilingual / quadrilingual names in Europe

Dear All,

I have been in around 35 countries around the world and I noticed Belarus is the only country that appears on Openstreetmap in a different language than on-spot. To be more precise, all names appear in OSM in Russian (Островец, Осиновка, Ошмяны for example), but when you drive there, everything is written in Belarusian (Астравец, Асінаўка, Ашмяны for instance).

Dear All,

I have been in around 35 countries around the world and I noticed Belarus is the only country that appears on Openstreetmap in a different language than on-spot. To be more precise, all names appear in OSM in Russian (Островец, Осиновка, Ошмяны for example), but when you drive there, everything is written in Belarusian (Астравец, Асінаўка, Ашмяны for instance). I've got nothing against Russian language (which is definitely more spoken in Belarus than Belarusian). However, I think we should start ASAP to correct that mistake and make Belarusian village, town and city names the main ones. In some cases even street and public transport names (in Minsk these things appear in Belarusian). The purpose is simple: for instance when you use maps.me (a GPS app that uses OSM), if you drive to Asinaŭka. it appears "Asinaŭka" and, just below, the name in Russian (Оснивока). However, when you arrive to that village, you see "Асінаўка". It is extremely confusing for travelers, especially if they don't read cyrillic.

Another question: multilingual names in Europe. Numerous cities, towns, and villages appear with bilingual names on spot (but on OSM their main names appear only in one language). It would be good to make those names appear as they appear on spot.

How do you think?

Aujourd'hui j'ai terminé le Louvre. 1 035 objets indoor selon l'indispensable OpenLevelUp. J'ai suivi la spécification Simple Indoor Tagging. Il ne manque que quelques salles fermées pour travaux, et tout ce que j'ai sûrement oublié ici ou là. Je vais donc faire un second passage pour vérifier chaque salle, chaque couloir, chaque entrée, et chaque attribut de chaque objet. Harmoniser la gestion des descriptions, des entrées. Rajouter sans doute des escaliers en ways parce que les areas, ce n'est pas suffisant pour un escalier. Indiquer peut-être les noms de départements.

Rien n'est simple au Louvre : escaliers de trois ou quatre marches avec un arrêt d'ascenseur en haut et un autre en bas, étages superposés mais jamais identiques, fiches descriptives de salles qui suivent des conventions différentes d'un département à l'autre, angles pas forcément droits, vestiges médiévaux, escaliers aux formes ingérables...

Et puis il faudra peut-être se demander à quoi tout cela peut servir. Il y aurait de quoi faire un petit guide sur smartphone.

Recently, Clash Royale becomes a very famous game. This strategy game was also launched by Supercell. Supercell always tries to offer the interesting game for the gamers. CoC is a strategy game that was launched several years before the Clash Royale. CoC also has many fans until now. Clash Royale and CoC are the popular games created by Supercell. As a famous game, Clash Royale has so many admirers. You may ever know Clash of Clan hack. You will also find Clash Royale hack. A hacking tool is created for some popular games. Many people download this game each day from their Smartphone. It is a sign that there are many people are attracted to this strategy game. If you have played Clash of Clan (CoC), you may be familiar with Clash Royale. This game adopts several features in CoC. The regulations are almost similar to CoC. But, both of them are not precisely same. There is also the difference between both games. In Clash Royale, you need to collect the cards that represent the characters. You can also upgrade your cards with gems or gold. clashroyale.hackz.co/

When you are playing a Clash Royale, surely you want to be the winner. But, being the winner is not a simple thing. You must have great methods to beat your opponent. Some people use Clash Royale hack to support them for attaining the victory easily. If you want to win each battle, you should understand the main key of the game. The main key to the game is the resources. You should have enough resources to give an attack. When defending from the enemy, you should also provide resources to your characters. Resources are the main energy for this game. That’s why a hack tool is made. The creators want to provide unlimited resources that can be used to fight.

What do you think about playing a game with a hack tool ? Do you think that using a hack tool is acceptable ? Do you want to utilize Clash Royale hack for winning your match ? The answer will depend on your outlook. As we know that Clash Royale is only a game. The main goal of playing a game is to get the enjoyment. You can get the enjoyment if you could win the game. Clash Royale is not a game that can be easily completed. You need to collect resources before attacking. You should find many ways to solve the obstacles and win the game. Most people who do not have sufficient time and money prefer to utilize a hack tool. Using a hack tool provides you a great chance to hit your enemy. If you want to be the best players among other, you need to build a strong deck. You should upgrade your cards and plan a strong attack. Do not forget to have a strong defense. You should realize that having enough resources is not the only one thing. You should also identify the movement of your enemy. You need to have a great method to beat every enemy.

Mapping
  • Marc Gemis (Escada) explains the workflow he follows when he surveys an area to map on OpenStreetMap.

  • Christoph Hormann provides new satellite images for mapping on his website imagico.de. The pictures show the North Sea in Germany, Denmark and the Netherlands, the Petschorasee coast in the North of Russia, part of the Arctic coastline and islands in the North Atlantic.

  • Michael Tsang asks for votes for his proposal bus_bay=left/right/both. Michael also extends the voting for through_service and asks for increased participation.

  • A discussion about how to map a mill channel/trench started both in the German forum ♦ (automatic translation) and the Tagging mailing list at about the same time. waterway=leat is called the water providing alternative for the existing tags waterway=ditch, drain and canalis proposed. The German forum prefers waterway=ditch, so far.

  • surface=cobblestone was discussed on the German forum ♦ (automatic translation), after wiki fiddling changed the original intent of the tag over the years. Do we all have to start retagging what we know colloquially as cobblestone to surface=sett? Or do we make the definitions in the wiki the way they started out?

  • Élisée Reclus (@reclus23) tweets that "In #Ruhrgebiet the cycle path signposts in #OpenStreetMap soon have ♦ (automatic translation) to be changed / supplemented". He also points out that new signposts might also be rescue points tagged highway=emergency_access_point or emergency=access_point.

Community
  • Whoever currently scrapes the JOSM server is kindly, but urgently asked to stop it.

OpenStreetMap Foundation
  • On the recent OSMF Board meeting on 18th April a possible directive was discussed on how to deal with commercially organized edits in a largely non-public item of the agenda. This led to a turmoil prior to the meeting. A theme in the public part was also a possible change of the e-mail provider for osmfoundation.org (Gmail) to a self hosted solution.

  • "OSMUK Chapter has opened a dialogue at senior level with Highways England about access to their data and they have indicated they are open to releasing data to us", says Brian Prangle at Talk-GB. He lists a number of features to add to the initial request of data. Your comments are welcome.

Events
  • On May 10th, a Missing Maps Mapathon will take place in Lyon, France.

  • The tickets for SotM Africa from July 8th to 10th in Kampala, Uganda, can be purchased here.

  • On September 14-15, the HOT Summit will take place in Ottawa, Canada.

Humanitarian OSM
  • OpenGovAsia reported in detail and clearly about the HOT activities and disaster management in Indonesia. The "pioneer work" by HOT even in very remote areas is highlighted in particular.

  • HOT reports on the projects being supported by the "Microgrants Program 2017".

Maps
  • On the Talk mailing list, you can read a discussion about how the important landmarks of cell towers are perceived differently and only pylons are rendered by the map style openstreetmap-carto.

  • [1] BBBike extract service now also delivers maps with the OpenTopoMap style for Garmin devices.

switch2OSM
  • The Verkehrsverbund Rhein-Neckar uses OSM data on its website (automatic translation) since the end of March. So far, start and destination maps, and line trajectories are available. They are already working ♦ on an interactive map.(automatic translation)

Software
  • Bryan Housel requests your help to translate the next version of iD. He also gives some details on the upcoming 2.2 release.

Programming
  • Mapbox released their Node.js binding for or-tools as open source. Although the code is thought to use the Mapbox APIs, first users confirmed that it also works directly with OSRM and OpenStreetMap data.

  • R0bst3r thought about how to use OpenStreetMap in his car. He found (automatic translation) a simple way to mirror the smartphone display on his Mazda radio. User michalfabik refers to a discussion on the same topic on reddit.

About landuses and landcover, in particular landuse=residential

Today I was asked by another (very active) mapper via email these questions:

We are currently discussing best practices for landuse mapping in Belgium. Some of the problems:

  • do you use multipolygons to avoid overlapping landuse or do you split a residential landuse so you can have smaller landuses ? Or do you just overlay them ? A lot of landuse is already mapp 2 days ago

Today I was asked by another (very active) mapper via email these questions:

We are currently discussing best practices for landuse mapping in Belgium. Some of the problems:

  • do you use multipolygons to avoid overlapping landuse or do you split a residential landuse so you can have smaller landuses ? Or do you just overlay them ? A lot of landuse is already mapped in a rough way, so we typically have large areas of residential landuse.
  • Do you include streets in residential landuse or do you exclude them so one can later add area:highway or landuse=highway ?
  • I'm in favour of landcover to avoid "forests" in gardens. Which landcover proposal do you follow ? (I believe there are 2).
  • what about grass/bushes in towns near highways ?

I wrote some lines how I believe it should be done. Here's a slightly modified version:

Residential landuse

Regarding the residential landuse, I am since almost 10 years advocating to not include roads but end the landuse at the property borders. Not only does it add more detail, because you can clearly distinguish (even without roads), parcelled land and common land, it will also be easier to add landuse=highway, i.e. the land that is legally a road. It just makes no sense from a legal point of view to add streets to the residential landuse (save maybe those areas where the streets are private). I do include driveways though, i.e. "roads" on the properties.

Clearly, public roads are road landuse, so they must not be included in residential, industrial, commercial, retail or other similar landuse.

why do people often use huge polygons including whole settlements in one landuse object?

IMHO the 3 reasons for people to include roads are

  1. lazyness (to draw and to determine the precise border, ...)

  2. OSM standard style is not rendering place areas, so people misuse residential landuse to say: built up area

  3. people hating "gaps" or voids in the map and think it must be "complete", so they connect the landuse to the road and prefer to have it "wrong" rather than "incomplete".

Scale

Of course it also depends on scale. IMHO we should try to map in a high scale, e.g. 1:500 - 1:1000 (because simplifications can be computed at need, while details can't), but if you do your mapping in 1:10.000 and lower you would likely not represent these details and would "include" the roads (actually it wouldn't be discernable whether they are included or not in these scales).

Using multipolygons in landuse mapping

I also advocate to not use multipolygons for built up landuse, if it is not strictly necessary (never met a situation where it was necessary, but it might exist). It just creates unnecessary complexity and deters less experienced mappers, and leads to errors laters. It is not necessary, just make the landuse as small as you like and need. (I think that landuse is a property of the land, I don't see it as a feature, i.e. for mapping a "residential area with a name" = part of a settlement, I suggest to use place, e.g. quarter, neighbourhood. Can even work for industrial areas (their names)). This way, you don't mix stuff and are not forced to ignore parcels with different landuses which are also a part of the settlement part (toponomastic area).

On the other hand, when mapping in rural areas and landuses like farmland, forests and other natural features (scrubs, heath, beaches, ...), multipolygons might come in handy to avoid duplicating long (and complex) ways by reusing them.

Landcover

Regarding landcover, I mostly only use 3 values: trees, sand, grass, although it could be extended by more vegetation and surface types (like bushes or whatever term is correct for these, currently I use natural=scrub for thickly vegetated / unpassable areas and avoid the landcover tag there). I admit as long as it doesn't render I still add stupid forest tags additionally, although it really is stupid ;-) I don't know about 2 landcover proposals, but for trees, sand and grass there isn't much to discuss I think.

Grass and bushes along roads

If they are (legally) part of the road I would see them as landuse=highway, grass can be landcover=grass, bushes are (in my mapping but I believe it is a common agreement) natural=scrub.
