Open Camping Map by Sven Geggus 1 | © Sven Geggus © Map data OpenStreetMap contributors

Mapping
  • After his first proposal to add stores which sell top-ups for prepaid services such as phones or public transport failed, Danysan has reworked the proposal and is giving it another try.
  • An isthmus is a narrow strip of land, bordered by water on both sides and connecting two larger land masses. Contributer SelfishSeahorse suggests using natural=isthmus to tag it.
  • Andrew from Apple shares on several mailing lists, including Ecuador, Chile and Turkey, that they have created multiple tasks on MapRoulette. These tasks are determined using Apple’s data analysis tool Atlas. Amongst the tasks created he mentions about creating tasks for correcting intersections of buildings and roads and overlapping lanes.
  • The Brumadinho dam disaster, a dam failure that caused at least 157 deaths, was reflected in OSM two days after the catastrophe. Simon Gascoin describes how he investigated the extent of the mudflow using Sentinel-2 imagery and noticed that OSM was already up-to-date. This Twitter message shows the extent of the disaster.
  • Mapillary have added another 42 different features which are detected automatically from contributors’ photos.
  • Some OSM mappers go the extra distance in mapping. HonourableNath travelled to Yaguine at a time when rivers were flooding. Her post (automatic translation) on the OSM Mali blog shows some of these travel modes, as well as the before-and-after mapping of the area.
Community
  • Frederik Ramm’s question as to whether there should be ethical standards for corporate members has not yet received an answer. It is probably easier to discuss the question in advance of any specific case arising.
  • The ‘Mapper of the Month’ chosen by OpenStreetMap Belgium is Guirec Halflants a.k.a. Correcaminos604 from Belgium.
  • Tigerfell published his thoughts about what information should be kept for documenting the history of OSM and invites you to join the discussion.
OpenStreetMap Foundation
  • The Board has not yet published its reasons for deciding on borders in Crimea. Martin Koppenhoefer puts this topic back on the agenda.
  • Discussions about the 101 membership applications of GlobalLogic from India continue unabated.
Events
  • Paul Desgranges gave a talk on 29th January at the Floss Conference in Grenoble introducing the participative mapping project OpenStreetMap!
  • Thomas Rupprecht announced the first OSM “Stammtisch” for OSM communities in the Wiener Becken. The first meeting will be on 28th February at the Leobersdorf maker space,
  • FOSDEM 2019 in Brussels took place on 2nd and 3rd February 2019. The program for the Geospatial devroom, which was started a few years ago, was made available. Almost all talks were recorded.
Humanitarian OSM
  • As part of the EuYoutH_OSM Erasmus+ Project Ciaran Staunton provided training to students from Portmarnock Community School on using an LG360ActionCAM and Mapillary in preparation for their humanitarian mapping trip to Lesotho in February.
  • Ramani Huria blogs about the collection of soil samples across Dar es Salaam on a 2 km grid by community members. The samples were assessed professionally and the data will be used to underpin flood hazard modelling.
  • HOT’s website features an article about Tanzania’s first patient origin tracking system. It explains why the origin of a patient matters and how HOT helps to improve the situation.
  • The HOT website hosts two articles from a 15 year old student who got mobile phones provided to the Peruvian GAL School by a NetHope and HOTOSM device grant. In the two articles Ana Paula Figueroa and Abril Gomez describe why they decided to record all sexist advertising and the reasons for analysing the degree of sexism that is generally accepted by Peruvian society, and how they proceeded to achieve that goal.
  • The Toronto Observer describes in an article how volunteer Torontonians helped some of the most vulnerable communities in the world in Nigeria at a mapathon organised by Missing Maps held at the Toronto headquarters of Doctors Without Borders.
  • The United Nations, in this case the UN Support Office for Somalia (UNSOS), which has been active in Somalia for many years, has recently developed a mapping initiative for the country, which is to serve peacekeeping and conflict prevention. In an unusual step for the UN, the organisation has decided to process all data provided directly in OpenStreetMap and thus support all humanitarian institutions. The first project of this initiative is described in the OSM wiki in detail. The HOT Tasking Manager will be used for managing this project. The first public mapathon will take place in Italy at the FOSS4G-IT 2019, as Alessandro P. posted on the Talk-it mailing list.
Maps
  • Disappointed by the mapping quality of camping grounds in OpenStreetMap and having in mind that often only an appropriate special interest map helps to improve the situation, Sven Geggus started Open Camping Map. In a blog post he explains some further details about his motivation and some technical info.
  • If you are looking for a restaurant with vegan or vegetarian offerings, this online map and this Android app make sure you don’t go home hungry.
switch2OSM
  • Lesson learned: “… it’s better to put it right on OpenStreetMap,” writes FragDenStaat, a German NGO in their blog. They explain this in detail and describe their way from Yelp via Google to OpenStreetMap. Recommended for imitation. (automatic translation)
Open Data
  • Christoph Grenz created (automatic translation) a nice website that displays information from the city of Bonn’s open data portal on a slippy map with additional functions such as edit with JOSM links and comparisons between the datasets and OSM.
  • thinkWhere is developing a portal to improve access to official European geospatial open data. The company has partnered with EuroGeographics, an umbrella organisation representing 63 European state organisations such as the UK Ordnance Survey.
Licences
  • The Open Data Institute published a guide to licences for geodata. Although it mainly targets commonly sourced UK geospatial data, it covers OSM’s licence as well and compares the major licences for (British) Ordnance Survey data with Google’s proprietary one.
Software
  • OSMF’s local chapter in Germany, FOSSGIS, is now operating (automatic translation) the Open Source Routing Machine (OSRM) based routing backend for OSM’s main website. The BSD licensed routing engine, hosted on two servers, calculates the routing graphs and provide the requested route directions. Like the Graphhopper service, which is provided by the company Graphhopper, OSRM gives directions for cars, bicycles and pedestrians.
Programming
  • For many years Richard Fairhurst has silently managed the API key for Bing Imagery on OSM. He is now asking on Github for someone else to take on the arduous task of wrangling Bing’s bureaucracy, in order to ensure that imagery continues to be available in all editors.
  • Bryan Housel’s tweet reminds possible mentors or people who want to suggest a project for the Google Summer of Code to visit the GSoC wiki site.
  • GTFS feeds, i.e. timetable data for public transport and associated geographical information such as stops, often do not include geodata about the routes. Thanks to the open source tool pfaedle, by Patrick Brosi from the University of Freiburg, these data can now be enriched using OSM data. The MITFAHR|DE|ZENTRALE offers the enriched GTFS feeds for Baden-Württemberg for download. The tweet of MITFAHR|DE|ZENTRALE, which draws attention to this service, also points to the theoretical background of the map matching.
Releases
  • openstreetbrowser.org’s recent update allows you to filter category results by certain criteria. For example, you can now filter by Italian restaurants.
Did you know …
  • … the nicely written manual on how to find your way around the OSM universe as a beginner and how to make your first edits? Created by Volker Gringmuth aka kreuzschnabel, the comprehensive manual describes the OSM basics, the data model and what help is available for the first edits, and at the end it touches on relations and JOSM plug-ins.
  • street-patterns a tutorial on using OpenStreetMap road data to make physical visualizations using Fablab equipment?
  • OSM SEED, a collection of Docker files that allows you to run your own OSM microcosm. This can be useful if you want to add your own data to a closed data pool, for example, for planning scenarios in a city administration or for training. A presentation is available on YouTube.
OSM in the media
  • The European Commission’s Joint Research Centre (JRC) published recently Cultural Gems, an OpenStreetMap based service to help tourist to find “cultural gems” in European cities. The Dundee Evening Telegraph is amused by the fact that the city’s toilets are registered as “worth seeing”.
  • A local media outlet interviews Franco Benedetti (@mweper) (automatic translation) from Funes, Argentina, and tells how the city map has been greatly improved.
  • The Yorkshire Post explains why Google’s recent price hike is the reason that many apps, with Adobe Lightroom being the most prominent example, have stopped working properly. The article also explains why reliance on free Google services is a bad thing and predicts that OSM will gain an ever-increasing importance.
Other “geo” things
  • The British House of Lords discussed if digital mapping restrictions should be imposed. Owen Boswarva summarised the discussion on Twitter with Lords are concerned that “a foreign-owned company that bases its services on Russian mapping software” is “pinpointing our civil infrastructure” with a “major high-definition survey”. Lord Wallace of Saltaire pointed to the interesting fact that “… a suspicious foreigner taking pictures of houses would have been stopped by some doughty Britain such as Mark Francois and challenged in case he was a German”. The issue with overeager Germans mapping the world is apparently much older than OSM.
  • House of Commons Library (UK) has created a set of neighbourhood names for every Middle-Layer Super Output Area (MSOA) in England and Wales — and they want to borrow your local knowledge to help correct and improve it.

    Revert a four-year-old building import? 1 | © Map data OpenStreetMap contributors

Mapping
  • The proposal for crossing:island=*, which is intended to indicate the existence of a pedestrian island at a road crossing, has been approved.
  • The new attribute embedded_rails=*, which can be used if there is a railway on a highway and this space is shared with vehicles, has also been approved.
  • The proposal about the mapping of disputed boundaries in OSM can now be voted on. John Paris’ proposal has reached version 1.6 and incorporates a lot of feedback based on previous versions.
  • Stefano Maffulli suggests formalising the key building:soft_storey= so that it can be used if a building has at least one building level that is significantly more flexible or weak in lateral load resistance than the levels above and below. According to his proposal, the tag has already been used 13,000 times, mainly during efforts to map buildings for the Open Cities Kathmandu project.
  • The question as to whether the tag landuse= should be used based solely on landuse or (as it is now as a mixture of that and landcover) can lead to emotional discussions. This time the question "How should areas, which are considered as forest by authorities but look more like scrub or scree, be tagged?", led to a discussion with around 100 responses on the tagging mailing list.
  • An email on the Talk-Asia mailing list summarises individual assessments made by volunteer mappers about Grab’s GlobalLogic OSM team’s edits in Thailand.
  • Andrzej thinks that the current addressing schema does not cover all, even basic scenarios. In his mail he points to several UK-related issues and to a summary page in the wiki. This started a longer discussion on talk-GB.
  • In his OSM diary will_p shares his thoughts about the usage of addr:place in the UK and lists some examples which don’t meet the wiki definition by varying degrees.
Community
  • OSM announced the 5,000,000,000th node on Twitter. The node was added by Kazykan and belongs to a building in Russia.
  • Geochicas tweeted an infographic summarising their activities, projects, alliances and community growth during 2018.
  • Faith Taylor from the University of Portsmouth is looking for volunteer community members in Austria who can help with a mapathon during the European Geosciences Union General Assembly in Vienna the week of the 8th to the 12th of April.
  • The "Thanks" extension has been installed on the OSM wiki, making it easy to thank other wiki contributors for their improvements.
  • Mateusz Konieczny attempted to list the different roles of contributors in the OSM ecosystem.
Imports
  • Frederik Ramm suggested reverting a four-year-old building import in Ulster County, New York State, because only simple squares had been imported instead of the correct building outlines. Two years ago the import was featured by Worst of OSM.
OpenStreetMap Foundation
  • The Membership Working Group’s report on the unusual signups before the OSMF election and the board’s reaction to it sparked off numerous discussions. There have been multiple questions (some of which have so far gone unanswered) and requests for GlobalLogic employees to be excluded from the foundation.
  • Since the beginning of the year, the OSMF has received applications for new Local Chapters from Ireland and Uganda. All current applications can be found on the overview page.
  • In a blog post titled Entryism in Open Communities, Steven Feldman wonders whether he was wrong to consider concerns about corporate takeovers. He concludes that OSM and OSGeo have become mainstream; will be of interest to commercial entities; and the potential for conflicts of interest is likely to grow. He suggests revisiting the articles of association to ensure adequate protection.
Events
  • OSGeo’s flagship event, the Free and Open Source Software for Geospatial (FOSS4G), which will take place from the 26th to 30th of August 2019 in Bucharest, Romania, is open for registration.

    Also note that FOSS4G Italy will take place from the 20th to 24th of February in Padova.

  • The State of the Map Africa, which will take place this year in Grand Bassam, Ivory Coast from the 22nd to the 24th of November 2019, is still looking (Google docs) for speakers. Proposals and nominations of suitable speakers are invited.
Humanitarian OSM
  • HOT expects that the Microgrants program that was established in 2017 will provide grants to 8 to 10 communities to improve their ability "to address the barriers they face to scaling their work". The program will focus on diversity and representation, innovation, sustainability and continuity.
Software
  • Sascha Fendrich reports that the openrouteservice (ORS) team at HeiGIT, in collaboration with the VROOM project, has contributed an ORS routing backend to the VROOM software. Now, VROOM is able to solve travelling salesman and other vehicle routing problems using OpenStreetMap data. A dedicated VROOM API will soon be available via openrouteservice.
Programming
  • The Linux Foundation announced that the application base created by Mapzen is being merged into The Linux Foundation. Mapzen discontinued its services at the end of January 2018, due to the lack of a sustainable business model.
  • Will the iD editor start beeping soon? (via GitHub)
Releases
  • A new version of iD has been released. The highlights of version 2.13.0 are the inclusion of quality issues from KeepRight, support for MapRules, a service to use presets from third party websites such as Radiant, and the possibility to quickly centre and zoom on a feature, note, or data issue.
Did you know …
  • … the JOSM Trick to switch between Dual Images (lower / higher zoom levels), you simply define a second Image Layer with a lower zoom max (i.e. z18) to avoid switching to the high zoom image when you want to interpret information from the lower image first.
  • … the website mapschool provides an introduction to digital cartography in English, Italiano, Español, Svenska, Français, 日本語, Português, Deutsch, Nederlands, Український and 한국어.
  • … PyQGIS 101 is a QGIS Python Tutorial designed for non-programmers.
OSM in the media
  • English and German (automatic translation) media have also covered the signup of 100 GlobalLogic employees, which caused the investigation by the OSM Membership Working Group discussed above.
Other “geo” things
  • The website MIT Technology Review features an article on how crowdsourced maps can help driverless cars by solving major current issues such as the slow update cycle of road data and the sparse mapping of roadside infrastructure. According to the article, Mapillary, which creates maps and catalogues roadside objects based on uploaded streetside images, is assumed to have potential to fill the gap of missing data for autonomous driving. Mapillary, which is free for non-commercial and personal use, charges licence fees from its commercial customers.
  • Rose Wanjiru reflects on Kenya’s Capital FM about the importance of GIS for settlement development in Kenya and how OSM can contribute to it.
  • A post from a Pokémon Go player on Reddit asks how often Niantic applies updates from OpenStreetMap. Suggested dates of last update include mid 2016 and early 2017.
  • Switzerland’s wonderful history of detailed mapping means you can see how the country’s glaciers have shrunk over time.
  • In Germany, "DasDing" reports (automatic translation) that Google Maps (the smartphone application) now has warnings about speed cameras. However, this would forbid (automatic translation) the use of the app by people driving in Germany (and any other places with similar legislation).
  • TomTom has sold its telematics unit for $1 billion in order to better compete with Google in maps and navigation.
  • Finally two fascinating movies. Ten months ago photographer Páraic McGloughlin was able to compile a great animation "Arena" using images collected over months from Google Earth. His twin brother, Kevin, surpassed this with his stop-motion-style animation "Epoch".

Age of buildings in the city centre of Graz, Austria 1 | © blog.openstreetbrowser.org © Map data OpenStreetMap contributors

Mapping
  • The tagging mailing list has been very busy recently. The voting for four proposals has been started.
    • The key crossing:island=* is intended to indicate the existence of a pedestrian island at a road crossing.
    • The keys prepaid_top_up=*, prepaid_top_up:brand=* and prepaid_top_up:network=* can help in finding a location where you can buy a top-up card for your phone.
    • If you want to specify whether a power line is insulated, you might be interested in the optional key insulated=yes/no.
    • If there is a railway on a highway and this space is shared with vehicles, the new tag embedded_rails= will allow you to tag the highway, although the rails are mapped as separate ways.
  • One question that is regularly asked is the difference between waterway=ditch and waterway=drain. Eugene Podshivalov asked this question on the tagging mailing list and it became apparent that there is not yet consensus on the differences.
  • The city of Cologne, Germany, released (automatic translation) its recent aerial images under a CC0 license and offers WMS services that can be used with OSM editors.
  • Konrad Lischka shows how to query for selected information from OpenStreetMap with the Overpass API and how to visualise it with uMap using churches and church service times as examples (automatic translation).
  • Christoph Hormann continues his ironic recommendations on how to map for the renderer, specifically how to render arbitrary text.
Community
  • Ben Abelshausen is advertising for Open Belgium 2019, a conference that will take place on March 4th in Brussels. In his mail he invites everyone to submit a talk and announces the availability of early bird tickets. He is also promising to organise a community day later this year.
  • Martin Noblecourt mentions job offerings from CartONG on the talk-fr mailing list. The French NGO is looking for a trainee, a Missing Maps animator and more.
  • Martijn van Exel announced the release of a new MapRoulette version. Version 3.1.2 is now available in Japanese too. It allows you to share filtered result lists with others and to edit just the current object in JOSM in areas with a lot of data unrelated to the task at hand.
  • The Centre de Cultura Contemporània de Barcelona (CCCB Lab) features an article from Carlos Bajo where he explains how OpenStreetMap contributes to societal development in places where the government fails to provide basic services. He highlights the growing number of local contributions in Africa and the benefits of Open Data and OSM in particular.
  • A discussion in the German forum (translation) asks whether Mapbox are “taking over tagging sovereignty in OSM”.
OpenStreetMap Foundation
  • Guillaume Rischard announced that the new Organised Editing Guidelines have come into effect. The guidelines cover “edits that involve more than one person and can be grouped under one or more sizeable, substantial, coordinated editing initiatives.”
  • derFred points to the possibility of becoming a member of the OSMF without the regular membership fee of 15 GBP if you cannot afford membership due to economic reasons. If you are an active mapper you can apply for the Fee Waiver Program. You can also apply if there is no payment option for the membership fee available for you (automatic translation).
Events Humanitarian OSM
  • Pete Masters thanks HOT Tanzania for helping a hospital in Tanzania to implement a patient origin tracking system by mapping the surroundings and training of the hospital staff. The system is intended to help the hospital locate the source of a disease and it is hoped that it might help to prevent the spreading of diseases and infections too, according to the website ippmedia.com’s reports.
  • Janet Chapman posted a review of 2018 for Crowd2Map, an initiative aiming to map Tanzania, in her user diary. She mentions the invitation to organise a mapathon at the UN, the award the organisation received at the last State of the Map in Milan and some of the talks she held during the year. Further information can be found on Crowd2Map’s website.
Education
  • The new curriculum (pdf) for French high schools states that all students should be introduced to geospatial data usage. One of the expected abilities in that domain is the ability to “contribute to OpenStreetMap in a collaborative way”.
Maps
  • [1] The website openstreetbrowser.org received an update that makes more detailed filtering for buildings available and now includes filters by building attributes such as type, age or height. The new map version also introduced office tags in thematic maps and provides more detailed popups in the Culture categories.

  • A short tweet about an event in the headquarters of the Ordnance Survey, the national British mapping agency, about “Road Flows” led Richard Fairhurst to ask for more details. The event was about using OpenStreetMap for improving data quality. In addition, the answer revealed that the Ordnance Survey searches for road direction mismatches between their own and OSM data and then sends surveyors to verify if required.
Software
  • Many software projects use the fork and pull model approach for contributions. alexkemp explained the basics of this model in his OSM user diary after he faced this requirement for the first time when he wanted to update a Github-hosted project.
  • Mapillary has just released a desktop application for uploading large amounts of street-level imagery, which can then be used for editing OpenStreetMap. It is currently available for Mac and Windows. Learn more on the Mapillary blog.
  • Adam Rousell from the Heidelberg Institute for Geoinformation Technology reports that the latest version 4.7.2. of openrouteservice also includes information about access restrictions when your route takes you over roads that are marked in OSM as restricted (e.g. destination only roads, private roads etc.).
Programming
  • Karry explains how he wrote his own hillshade tile server for his project OSM Scout for Sailfish OS, a project to bring offline OSM maps to Sailfish OS, after the previously used hillshade tiles from Heidelberg university stopped working.
  • Reddit user nanothrowaway airs a lot of grouses about OsmAnd’s OSM Map Creator. Various redditors tried to explain why the data is kept in memory for efficiency reasons, but the OP maintained that it’s the use of Java which is the problem.
Releases
  • MyOSMatic, a MapOSMatic instance at osm-baustelle.de, has upgraded the front end from Bootstrap v3 to v4.
Did you know …
  • … you can use Traveltime Platform to create isochrones in several countries? One can create travel time polygons on a map, for example, “how far can I reach within 30 minutes by car/bicycle/public transport from my current location?”
  • … the always up-to-date OSM Software Watchlist?
  • outdooractive.com with OpenStreetMap maps?
OSM in the media
  • The German weekly newspaper Die Zeit uses OSM data to visualise the distribution of various sports (from cricket to football) worldwide (automatic translation).
Other “geo” things
  • Matt Caywood, of Washington(DC)-based firm TransitScreen, announced the launch of OpenMobilityData – “the OpenStreetMap of transit” – a joint venture with non-profit MobilityData. The goal is an open data platform for transit and mobility data. The data have been seeded from TransitFeeds, which has been acquired by the new venture.
  • The Hindu, the second most circulated English-language newspaper in India, published an article about OSM, the OSM community in India and the use of OSM in the humanitarian sector.
  • The BBC World Service’s Business Daily programme aired an episode (select the download link on that page) devoted to the poor availability of modern up-to-date maps across Africa. This is the third episode titled “Africa’s Missing Maps” and mainly features businesses such as TomTom and the Ordnance Survey.
  • Maxor Technologies, DigitalGlobe’s parent company, announced that the WorldView-4 Earth observation satellite has suffered a defect in its attitude correction system. Due to this loss of a stability axis, the satellite can no longer be used for image acquisition. WorldView-4 was launched in November 2016, making it the youngest satellite in the DigitalGlobe fleet. SpaceflightNow reports that the planned lifetime was 10 to 12 years.
  • The British Guardian: “Off the chart: the big comeback of paper maps“.
  • Aaron Straup Cope writes about how the term “airport gates” has multiple meanings (for passengers, airlines, aviation authorities) and how this affects where they should be placed on maps of airports.

JOSM Plugin for landuse overlap 1 | © KiaaTiX, JOSM © Map data OpenStreetMap contributors

Mapping
  • A fool with a tool…” (… is still a fool) is probably not the right subject line if you want to address an issue on an international mailing list, even if you encounter an OSM element where name spacing is taken to an extreme level: service:vehicle:Transmission_Repair=yes, service:vehicle:air_conditioning=yes, service:vehicle:batteries=yes, service:vehicle:body_repair=yes, service:vehicle:brakes=yes, service:vehicle:car_parts=yes, service:vehicle:car_repair=yes, service:vehicle:diagnostics=yes, service:vehicle:electrical=yes, service:vehicle:glass=yes, service:vehicle:inspection=yes, service:vehicle:motor=yes, service:vehicle:motorbike=yes, service:vehicle:muffler=yes, service:vehicle:oil_change=yes, service:vehicle:repairs=yes, service:vehicle:tires=yes, service:vehicle:truck_repair=yes, service:vehicle:tyres=yes, service:vehicle:wheels=yes
  • Disputed boundaries are a sensitive issue, and so are proposals as to how to map them. John Paris announced version 1.6 of his proposal for mapping disputed boundaries in OSM and requests feedback.
  • Konrad Lischka suggested extending the tag amenity=kindergarten with operator=, operator:type=charitable and organisation= to properly tag kindergartens that are operated as independent charitable entities.
  • Following the recent approval of the new key interval= for tagging the time between departures at any given stop (see Headway on Wikipedia), Leif Rasmussen continues with the next step and suggests the key departures= for adding the departure time for a given interval.
  • Minh Nguyen reports about his mapping of Oldenburg (Indiana), a city where street signs are in German.
  • In some countries the number 13 is considered as unlucky. In these countries the 13th floor is often omitted in multi-level buildings. The mapper ‘This Is A Display Name Desu’ asks how to deal with it when mapping building levels.
Community
  • A community representative from the Thai community will meet with the mapping lead from Grab to discuss recent quality issues caused by Grab’s activity. Mishari Muqbil is helping to prepare for the meeting and asks for input from the wider community on what topics should be addressed during the meeting.
  • “What use is OpenStreetMap?” John Whelan was asked by an employee of a municipal government. How would you have responded and where would you refer them to find further information? The answers to his question might help you too.
  • The interpretation of population limits in the OSM wiki for choosing the correct value for a place= tag led to a dispute between mappers in Turkmenistan. The issue is that the importance of a settlement in some countries is not reflected in the same way by the population number as it is in Western Europe for example. Joseph Eisenberg wrote a good summary of how to distinguish between the place-values without using hard population limits. Kevin Kenny reports on a similar discussion in the US and points to the outcome.
  • David Garcia, a cartographer, wrote an article on medium.com about why he is committed to the commons of cartography. As he lays out in the article, his turning point was his humanitarian contribution to OSM after the devastating cyclone Haiyan.
OpenStreetMap Foundation
  • We want to repeat a tweet from the OSM Operations Team: “Thank you to @AssoGrifon and @iwayAG for offering us Tile CDN servers today. Both now up & already serving traffic.”
  • The German company Alpha9 Marketing Gmbh Co KG with its brand auskunft.de joined the OpenStreetMap Foundation as a Bronze Corporate Member.
Events
  • The 4th GeoPython Conference will take place on June 24-26, 2019 in Basel/Muttenz, Switzerland. The topics range from Python in general, geospatial webservices and geovisualisation to indoor mapping and modelling
Education
  • Yongyang Xu, Zhong Xie and Liang Wu from the Faculty of Information Engineering, China University of Geosciences, Wuhan, China, have analysed the road network in OSM and found out that the data in OSM is highly detailed and complex but also includes many duplicate lines which degrade the efficiency and increase the difficulty of extracting multilane roads. The team suggested a machine‐learning‐based approach to predicted multilane roads. Unfortunately the study is behind a paywall, hence, it could not be confirmed whether the research area has indeed many duplicate roads or if it is a misconception about OSM’s data model.
Maps
  • Scott Davies published a nicely styled Chronological Map of Walthamstow on Twitter that he made with OSM, QGIS and inkscape.
  • Paul Norman offers pre-rendered OSM carto tiles at low zoom levels for download. The files that are available for the zoom levels 0 to 6, 8, 9 or 10 could be useful, if you need a world map without high zoom levels and don’t want to set up a database server.
  • Juminet has created (automatic translation) an OSM map of the Ardennes region. He describes a clever method to determine orientation for markers, and shows the special attention his map gives to Christmas trees.
  • An interesting study about street names in Germany won an award at the Information is Beautiful Awards.
  • OpenSnowMap points out that a number of cross-country ski trails in the Jura are yet to be mapped in OSM.
Software Releases
  • Version 2.12.2 of the iD editor has recently been released. The new version allows a preset to control the “add field” dropdown, improves usability and performance, fixes a lot of bugs, adds localisation to label/description pulled from Wikidata, and further improves the presets.
Did you know …
  • … about get-map.org, a tool to create printable maps?
  • … how to run your own instance of uMap? A user asked in the forum and was pointed to a step-by-step guide.
  • … that Austria’s building coverage in OSM has reached 85 percent? That’s an increase of 21% compared with the beginning of 2016. Even the least-mapped municipalities exceed 50 percent coverage.
  • … Geofabrik’s tile calculator, that returns the number and size of tiles in a given bounding box.
Other “geo” things
  • The theory that the geography of a country determines its development is not new. However, Lionel Page disagrees and points to a road map of the border area between the neighbouring countries Finland and Russia, that shows significant differences although they are very close to each other geographically. To the critics that said one example does not falsify a theory, Lionel responded by naming similar examples in North/South Korea, Austria and Czechia (the Czech Republic), USA and Mexico.
  • Frost & Sullivan, a global business consulting firm headquartered in Mountain View, California, has chosen Mapbox’s mapping and live location platform as 2019 Platform of the Year.
  • The company Here, formerly known as Navteq and Nokia Maps, launched an app for planning and sharing rides called SoMo (derived from “social mobility”). The app aims to combine all public, private and personal transport offerings in a single system and adds social functions to share rides between personal contacts.

Howto … OSM Promotional Leaflets 1 | © alexkemp, Andy Allan

Mapeando
  • OpenStreetMap Ireland ha sugerido una tarea de mapeo para la epoca de vacaciones: añadir todos los edificios para un solo pueblo. Algunos mapeadores (incluyendo Ciaran, Earl y Tshedy), lo intentaron, pero sera otro proyecto de varios años para los mapeadores irlandeses, como hay más de 60.000 pueblos.
  • Simon Poole (CH), Christian Quest (FR) y sebastic (NL) realizaron sus ediciones habituales del Año Nuevo para actualizar los límites de los municipios recién fusionedas.En Bélgica se trataba de un esfuerzo de grupo, cuyos preparativos ya habían comenzado en junio, como implicaba muchos cambios de nombres de calles y direcciones.
  • Daniele Santini sugiere agregar un atributo top_up=* a una característica si vende recargas, por ejemplo, para vales de recarga de crédito de teléfonos móviles, recarga de crédito por aire, vales de recarga de crédito de transporte público o recarga de crédito para tarjetas de crédito prepagadas.
  • Markus esta proponiendo un nuevo valor para place key place=peninsula para mapear penínsulas que tienen nombre. Durante la discusión, se hizo evidente que la lista de etiquetas está más a favor denatural=peninsula, una propuesta que se rechazó en 2008. La discusión también proporciona información útil para las personas interesadas en preguntas filosóficas, como cuál es el tamaño superior donde las cosas dejan de ser una península o cuál es la diferencia con respecto a un cabo?
  • Hufkratzer desafía la descripción de wiki para building=pavilion como un edificio que ofrece instalaciones para los usuarios de terrenos deportivos. Sin embargo, aprendió que la descripción está bien de acuerdo con el inglés británico, el idioma que estamos usando en OSM. La pregunta si el término fue elegido sabiamente si significa cosas diferentes en otros países no surgió.
  • eteb3 estaba buscando una etiqueta para el porta-bicicletas planter (tiesto, maceta) que apareció recientemente en el Reino Unido y verifica si hay reglas no escritas o cosas a considerar antes de usar sus propios valores. Después de la discusión nuestra wiki tiene una etiqueta documentada más: man_made=planter.
  • Axelos sugirió implementar algún tipo de jerarquía para las relaciones de ruta. Otros le han señalado lo similar, el concepto ya usado de super-routes / super-relations, algo que ha sido discutido de manera bastante controvertido.
Comunidad
  • En Kozikhode, India, un equipo de voluntarios está trabajando duro para crear un mapa digital completo de los barrios de Koorachundu Grama panchayat utilizando OpenStreetMap.
  • Reddit user tseepra creó una visualización interesante de los 70k nodos, 60k ways, y 160k polígonos que se añadieron en 2018 en Irlanda. En Reddit se discute cómo se puede realizar esto utilizando la función Atlas de QGIS.
  • Peter Elderson está trabajando actualmente en la sección de relaciones de rutas muy largas en partes de relaciones con menos de 300 vias. La idea básica es hacer que esas relaciones sean más prácticas porque se dividen en secciones de la caminata de un día. Sin embargo, está buscando a alguien que pueda ayudarlo a crear wikitables clasificables en una página wiki que se alimenta de una consulta en vivo.
  • Wille Marcel, un desarrollador de aplicaciones GIS de Brasil, ha sido elegido como mapeador del mes por OSM Bélgica. Él descubrió OSM en 2010 en una conferencia de software de código abierto y nombra el desarrollo de OSMCha como su mayor logro.
  • Simon Poole ha actualizado las estadísticas de contribuyentes para 2018.
  • CouwelierTim publicó un resumen de chat semanal de las discusiones en la comunidad belga desde el 17 de diciembre de 2018 hasta el 23 de diciembre de 2018.
Importaciones
  • omgitsgela solicita comentarios para la importación de direcciones planificada en todo el estado en Massachusetts. La importación de los datos MassGIS, una base de datos pública que contiene datos de direcciones, está ampliamente documentada en la wiki.
Fundación OpenStreetMap Eventos
  • El sitio web de Open Belgium 2019, una conferencia para Open Knowledge y Open Data, esta ahora en línea. La conferencia tendrá lugar el 4 de marzo de 2019 en Bruselas.
OSM Humanitario
  • HOT publicó una serie de videos sobre los seminarios web del Equipo Humanitario OpenStreetMap en 2018 y dio una mirada general sobre los seminarios web ya programados en 2019.
  • HOT esta solicitando propuestas para mejorar el Administrador de Tareas. La actualización permitirá al administrador de tareas de incorporar los resultados del aprendizaje automático, incluido un proceso de validación y descontaminación antes de que la salida del modelo se transfiera a OSM.
Mapas
  • Larissa Vernier, una epidemióloga de Médicos sin Fronteras, explica su motivación por eligir R para Epis (R4Epis) para su trabajo. Una de las razones son las funciones de análisis espacial de R, que le ayudan a buscar patrones, a comprender qué tan rápido se está propagando una enfermedad y tal vez cómo puede detenerse.
  • Mapbox probablemente está viendo muchos mapas en el transcurso de un año. En su sitio web puede encontrar 18 mapas con información de fondo de los mapas que los inspiraron durante 2018.
  • En su diario de usuario, alexkemp informa que se quedó sin los folletos promocionales de OSM que había recibido una vez de Andy Allan. Por lo tanto, intentó que el folleto de GitHub se imprimiera en su imprenta local, pero no tenían las fuentes necesarias. En su post describe su viaje para obtener las fuentes requeridas.
  • La instancia maposmática en osm-baustelle.de ahora ofrece un estilo de superposición que representa allotments=plot.
Datos Abiertos Software
  • Florian Schäfer anunción una nueva herramienta de línea de comanda que puede convertir entre los formatos de archivo i18n y el formato personalizado utilizado por JOSM. La nueva herramienta langconv es parte de gradle-josm-plugin.
  • El equipo de OsmAnd informa sobre varias características y mejoras agradables que agregaron durante el año pasado y lo que podemos esperar para 2019.
Releases
  • Una nueva versión estable de JOSM ha sido lanzada. La versión 18.12 corrige fugas de memoria, entradas de imágenes obsoletas, proporciona una página animada de “Getting Started” con estrellas brillantes 15 días antes de Navidad y contiene muchas otras correcciones y mejoras.
Otras cosas “geo”
  • UnoSat creó un mapa de las zonas inundadas por los tsunamis en la provincia de Lampung, Indonesia.

Walking time to the nearest public transport stop 1 | © City of Stuttgart © Map data OpenStreetMap contributors

Mapping
  • OSM South Africa are raising funds on GoFundMe to purchase historical topographic maps of Namibia. If funding is successful, the maps will be tiled for use in OSM editors, just like the topo maps of South Africa itself which are already available.
  • Peter Elderson wants to revive the highway=trailhead proposal from 2015. According to his post on the tagging mailing list, in the Netherlands mappers have added the tag at all starting points for trails which have some infrastructure (parking, information, etc). However, there is some confusion over whether the term trailhead is appropriate for the purpose and who is already using it in OSM.
  • Apple has posted potential data problems in Korea such as building-road intersections, highway links without classification and roads with excessively sharp angles to MapRoulette where the challenges can be solved by volunteers.
  • Apple announced that they will map buildings in Buenos Aires manually using imagery sources and GPS resources.
  • On Techcrunch.com, Jon Russell reports how Grab is jamming the OSM community in Thailand by making inferior changes. The article quotes a local mapper with the words “OpenStreetMap is mostly craft, but they [Grab] attack OSM with an industrial mentality”. The article also mentions that 100 employees of Grab’s mapping subcontractor GlobalLogic of India have become members of the OSMF.
  • Grab responded to the critical TechCrunch article: Bangkok mapper Mishari Muqbil provides an extended reply to Grab’s press release.
  • The German community continued their annual ritual and mapped Christmas market features that can be seen on the Christmas market map (loads slowly). The fact that the map is quite D-A-CH-centric may be a result of the insufficient translation of the wiki site but more likely relates to the German passion for this kind of market.
Community
  • Phase 2 of Community Africa Francophone for Open Data (CAFDO) mini-grants (automatic translation) funded various OpenStreetMap activities organised by members of local communities in Western Africa: a mapathon in Koutiala, Mali; one week of training in Zinder, Niger; mapping of tourism-related objects in Ouidah, Bénin; a three-day training dedicated to ladies in Ivory Coast; a promotional workshop in Burkina Faso and a conference for local authorities in Senegal.
OpenStreetMap Foundation
  • There are discussions in Australia to set up a local Open Source Geospatial organisation OSGeo Oceania as an OSMF local chapter.
Humanitarian OSM
  • The minutes of the board meeting of HOT US Inc. on December 6 have been published. The topics discussed during the meeting included the setup of an advisory board and the planned registration of a European branch in order to be eligible for EU programmes.
  • HOT announced a partnership with tech hub iLab Liberia and the local OSM community to introduce the Open Cities Monrovia project. As 90 percent of the population in Monrovia is living in areas with very high flood risk, the project aims to improve understanding of unplanned settlements and make the slum communities more resilient to natural disasters.
  • The project mamapa is teaching immigrants in Germany to contribute to international humanitarian mapping initiatives. The project, which is supported by BASF (Ludwigshafen) and CartONG, helps in a number of ways, i.e. assisting the activity of humanitarian relief staff on the ground, teaching immigrants new skills in geography and modern cartography, hastening their integration into German society and providing a directly appreciated humanitarian contribution.
Maps Open Data
  • The Open Data Institute (London) announced four successful bids for funding under their local open geospatial data initiative. Two of these, maybe more, make use of OpenStreetMap data: in Oxfordshire local mappers and cycle advocacy groups will work with the council to improve cycle infrastructure, whilst Falkirk aims to improve access by community groups and individuals to a range of facilities.
Software
  • Stefan Keller announced (automatic translation), on the Swiss mailing list, an experimental tool for converting free text (German only) to the OSM opening hour syntax. Two different approaches are available for testing.
  • Fabian Schütt from the Statistical Office of the City of Stuttgart determined the walking time to the nearest public transport stop for every place in the city using the QGIS plugin OSM Tools from HeiGIT, which makes the functions of openrouteservice – such as routing, isochrones and matrix calculations – available to QGIS users.
  • Nils Nolde from Heidelberg Institute for Geoinformation Technology (HeiGIT) announced openelevationservice as a new endpoint within the openrouteservice API ecosystem. It queries a remote DEM for every vertex of a LineString or Point geometry and enriches those with altitude values. Ituses SRTM v4.1 as a start and you can easily test it using the interactive documentation in the API playground, even without programming.
  • Simon Poole provides some hints as to new features in forthcoming versions of Vespucci. Firstly, in a diary post, he explains how he has tiled OSM data for offline use in the editor. Secondly, he demos some work-in-progress on adding functionality to enable editing of turn restrictions.
Programming
  • Stephan Bösch-Plepelits made some changes to the Leaflet.TextPath library.
  • And here comes another little Christmas present from HeiGIT: In addition to their highly appreciated Python and R libraries HeiGIT Institute now offers an additional JavaScript API making it simple to use the openrouteservice ecosystem, covering the entire globe based on OSM, in web applications.
Releases
  • Find the changes in OSM Carto v4.18.0 here and OpenMapTiles v3.9 here.
Did you know …
  • this article from a year ago in which SeverinGeo explains why he thinks that the HOT US Inc governance should not to be replicated in the OSM Foundation.
Other “geo” things
  • Matthew Flint found an old, 1950s, town plan of Cardiff in a second-hand bookshop. It uses a very unusual radial grid for locating streets.
  • OSM contributor Mick Hicks tweets about how the extensive use of cul-de-sacs (dead-end streets) in suburban road layouts in the US over the past few decades makes the effective provision of public transport very difficult. He remarks both on his own observations from correcting TIGER data in Minnesota, and on recent press coverage of bus transport in Colorado Springs.
  • The BBC reports about account closures of Slack users who have ever visited a country imposed with US sanctions (e.g. Cuba, Iran, the Crimean Peninsula) or are citizens of such a country (via HOT mailing list).
