Mapping
  • Joseph Eisenberg restarted the proposal process for camp_site=camp_pitch.The tag has already been used over 6800 times to add individual tent or caravan spots within a tourism=camp_site area.
  • Joseph Eisenberg also proposed golf=cartpath for golf cart paths, rather than highway=path or highway=service with golf_cart=designated.
  • The tag shop=fashion_accessories, which was suggested by SelfishSeahorse for shops focusing on selling fashion accessories, was approved.
  • The tag place=locality is currently used about 1.3 million times. The tag is used for a lot of different purposes such as ghost towns and railway junctions in the USA or in combination with locality=townland and locality=subtownland in Ireland. This led Joseph Eisenberg to ask whether locality=* could be used to specify the type of locality.
  • Since 15 March, about seven-eighths of all associatedStreet relations in Germany have been replaced by tags on the buildings. The proportion of redundant relations has been reduced from 58% to 7%. dktue posted a simple evaluation (automatic translation) on the forum.
Community
  • Tigerfell invited all contributors to vote about the proposed Deletion policy for wiki pages and files.
  • Alan McConchie wrote a blog post with his thoughts about the unusual election for the OpenStreetMap US Board. Four candidates — Jonah Adkins, Ian Dees, Bryan Housel and Alyssa Wright — were approved by a simple confirmatory vote and Minh Nguyễn was elected by a ranked choice voting for the seat vacated by Maggie Cawley. In his post, he explains the details of those voting procedures. Maggie Cawley resigned six weeks after being re-elected to take on the role of executive director of OSM US.
  • The Conversation, a website for news from the academic and research community, published an article entitled Better city bike maps are made by volunteers, largely based on investigations of data from Canadian cities. It concluded that OSM is more up-to-date and includes more local details than many other sources, including data from the Open Data portals of the cities studied.
  • Martijn van Exel introduces a simple approach on how to measure the “well mapped-ness” (or just "mappedness") of a town in OSM. In his step-by-step guide he explains how he used the name= tag as a proxy for POIs, which he then uses to define completeness, and to visualise the "mappedness".
Imports
  • The Swedish community plans to import landuse data from the Swedish Environmental Agency (Naturvårdsverket). A discussion about this is on the mailing list talk-se. (automatic translation)
  • Japan’s Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries (MAFF) recently published (automatic translation) farmland data for the whole of Japan. nyampire provides some details about this huge dataset with 30,951,173 polygons. He concluded that an import "..could be challenging".
OpenStreetMap Foundation
  • The minutes of the 14 March meeting of the License Working Group of the OSMF have been published.
Events
  • Christine Karch, chair of SotM Working Group, points out, once more, an important deadline via a tweet. The deadline for the "Call for Presentations" for this years’ conference in Heidelberg is next Thursday, 25 April 2019. Here is the link to register your presentation.
  • Neil Matthews will be presenting an Intro to OpenStreetMap at the Open Data Bristol meetup on 23 April 2019.
Humanitarian OSM
  • The University of Capetown featured an article about its efforts to support the disaster relief operations after Cyclone Idai in Mozambique together with its partners Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team and Missing Maps.
  • Also mapping after Cyclone Idal, as reported by the website physicsworld.com, were members of the European Geoscience Union (EGU). Their efforts were to aid relief operations in Zimbabwe.
  • HOT has selected eight community projects out of applications from over 30 countries as recipients of the 2019 HOT Microgrants. The article gives short introductions to the projects in Asia, South America and Africa.
  • The La Vanguardia newspaper from Madrid reports (automatic translation) about a mapathon in which more than 500 people participated. The Mapathon was organised by Doctors Without Borders, the Geographical Faculty of the University of Zaragoza and Missing Maps.
Education
  • The newspaper Volksfreund Trier reports (automatic translation) about the Erasmus+ project of the Geschwister-Scholl-Schule, a vocational school in Saarburg, Germany. The students will be introduced to OSM, as in two previous projects (1), (2), this time with a focus on mapping for humanitarian purposes.
Maps
  • [1] miche101 has introduced Notes Map, a tool which tries to categorise notes reported on OSM’s website based on their content. According to his forum post (automatic translation), he is using 774 pre-defined words to sort the notes into 25 categories.
  • Qwant Maps now has route calculation (automatic translation).
  • The MapOSMatic fork maintained by Hartmut Holzgraefe now uses a Weblate instance for localisation instead of Transifex.
Open Data
  • FOSS4G has organised a competition for new open source applications using the large amount of data gathered by earth observation satellites. The competition will be open until the FOSS4G conference on 26 August 2019.
Licences
  • Frederik Ramm asks on the Legal-Talk mailing list about the extent to which Share-Alike should be applied to the evaluation rules and results of machine learning.
Software
  • The OpenStreetMap History Database (OSHDB) has received an update. Please check the bugfixes and new features on GitHub.
Programming
  • Users of systems using Osmosis to obtain the minutely diffs should check whether their system continued functioning properly after 11 April. On that day, a diff was published that Osmosis could not handle. See the mailing list Talk for more information.
  • The OSM API does not yet have a reasonable concept of how to deal with diff uploads that have been sent to the API and no answer received e.g. due to network problems. Most clients try to upload the diff again and therefore often create new objects twice. User mmd has started a discussion on GitHub.
  • In the iD bug tracker, there is a discussion about supporting the lifecycle tagging scheme. The main developer quincylvania has already implemented this in the Git branch lifecycle-tagging.
  • Muramoto announced that a new version of OpenSwitchMap has been released and now works with not only Chrome but also Firefox. This app is a browser extension to open the position displayed in Google Maps with another map provider or OSM QA tool. F4map developer jazzzz has made a great contribution to developing the new version and supporting Firefox. The name of the project could be difficult in light of OSM’s trademarks.
Releases Did you know …
  • … how to tag the name of a bridge, which is usually different from the name of the road passing over it? The matching tag is bridge:name, while the road stays with the usual name tag. You can also add foreign names using the language suffix scheme like bridge:name:ja. The same concept exists for tunnels as well: tunnel:name.
  • laengengrad-breitengrad.de (automatic translation) for fast conversion of geocoordinates?
Other “geo” things
  • Nick Weir wrote an article on towardsdatascience.com about automated analysis of imagery and mapping, for instance in monitoring de-forestation or disaster response. The article discusses the typical difficulties faced by automated solutions: imagery displacement and distortion, lighting, object occlusion, and resolution. In this context he discusses the top five winning algorithms of the SpaceNet Off-Nadir Building Footprint Extraction Challenge.
  • The Swiss newspaper Tagesanzeiger has published a quiz on Swiss cities with graphics by "Figuregrounder" by Hans Hack.
  • Facebook’s AI team created a population density map of the whole of Africa.
  • Android Authority reported that Uber paid $58 million for using Google Maps between 2016 and 2018. The source is the prospectus for the upcoming IPO.
  • New scenery editor for X-Plane with OpenStreetMap as overlay has been released. (automatic translation)

View of the world’s hidden infrastructure mapped in the OpenStreetMap database 1 | © OpenInfraMap | © MapTiler | Map data © OpenStreetMap contributors

Mapping
  • In a series of tweets, Tyler Busby updates progress on using machine learning to identify rooftop solar panels in Austin, Texas. The data are used to maintain a MapRoulette challenge for adding the data to OSM.
  • Nuno Caldeira announced with a tweet the work done by OSM’s Portuguese Telegram working group. More than 4,000 buildings on the islands of Flores and Corvo, in the western group of the Azores archipelago, were mapped in 35 days.
  • Brian Prangle suggests improving the POI data quality in the United Kingdom as the project for the second quarter. First priority should be businesses that no longer exist or have changed their name. The project follows a successful first quarter where nearly 70,000 addresses were improved or confirmed with use of public Food Hygiene Rating Standard data.
  • Dan S proposes a UK-specific project to map solar electricity panels. He points to wiki pages for rooftop solar panels and large solar farms that have data that should help in completing the task.
  • JM82 is surprised (automatic translation) that the coverage of mapped buildings in Austria seems to be decreasing.
  • Kleper from Colombia invites all active mappers to help complete the following task: 121. It is suggested to start with the area of Chocó, which is affected by constant migration of people from different regions and recently had to deal with a further increase of migration due to the crisis in Venezuela.
  • The intensive mapping of garage access roads in residential areas by employees of newspaper publishers is intensively discussed (automatic translation) in the German forum. User boldtrn has found, in a sample, an error rate of 30 to 50 percent in the posts in his street.
  • LorenzoStucchi has drafted three proposals for the tag landcover. He suggests landcover=cultivated for areas which are cultivated by humans such as farmland or meadows, landcover=artificial for areas that are altered by construction, mining or other human activities and landcover=barren for areas without vegetation and with bare soil. The request for comments period started on 6 April 2019.
  • CapitaineMoustache has drafted a proposal for industrial=grain_storage_centre as a specification of landuse=industrial. The request for comments period is planned to start on 5 April 2019.
  • The British national mapping agency, the Ordnance Survey, tweeted a photo of surveying work starting on Tottenham Hotspur’s new stadium which opened this month. Steve Chilton points out that OSM has had it mapped in detail for a while now.
Community
  • Colin Blackburn is intrigued by a “Clothing Optional” labelled beach in OSM on a route that he has vaguely planned to run. We hope he is not helping Mapillary during his runs.
  • In his diary, hvalentim wrote (automatic translation) some reflections on the mapping of national registered Portuguese-built heritage sites in OSM: some gaps were detected and many other suggestions made for the improvement and standardisation of tagging.
Imports
  • Jason Owen drafted a plan to import water well positions in Harare, Zimbabwe and announced it on the import mailing list.
Events
  • The Call for Proposals for the HOT Summit 2019, that will take place on 19-20 September 2019 directly before the State of the Map 2019 in Heidelberg, is now open.
  • Registration for SotM France, which will take place in Montpellier from 14 to 16 June 2019, is open! (automatic translation)
Humanitarian OSM
  • HOT brings transparency to staff salaries. While it does not publish individual salaries, it has made the formula/method open. The article, on HOT’s website, explains why they wanted to be more open about the salaries, the different forms of transparency and the difficulties they faced during the process to find a new model to increase equality. The article also details how the new model eliminates inequalities and the effect it had on the payroll after the implementation.
  • This year’s nomination phase for new members at HOT US Inc. has started and lasts until 16 April 2019. As Natalie Sidibe wrote on the mailing list, HOT is allowing self-nominations this year in order to increase the diversity of membership.
  • Gaurav Thapa, from Kathmandu Living Labs, describes the collection process for gathering geospatial data on the ground in Kathmandu Valley, Nepal as part of a project to increase the understanding of exposure to natural hazards and to help minimise risks resulting from these threats.
  • Jorieke Vyncke gave a huge Thank You from Doctors Without Borders to HOT for the work and support HOT has provided after Cyclone Idai.
Education
  • A collection of 200+ videos in English (and another 200 in German) about OpenStreetMap, FOSS4G, OSGeo, GIS, etc. is available on TIB AV-Portal.
  • Mapbox’s article “Your first steps with JOSM” helps you contribute to OpenStreetMap.
Maps
  • Russ Garrett made some enhancements to OpenInfraMap: different aspects of infrastructure are now shown as layers, and a heat map layer of solar photovoltaic generators has been added.
Programming
  • Heidelberg University’s GIScience Research Group released a preview of a new Openrouteservice client for the web and mobile devices.
Releases Did you know …
  • … the tool comparemaps.drona.ro which allows you to compare OSM with Google Maps, Bing Maps and Nokia Maps?
  • …the App KartaGPS?
  • NotesReview, which you can use to search for OSM notes using search terms?
  • …the webpage Pic4Review? It allows mapping, using Mapillary images, and participating in various missions, such as adding accessibility for wheelchairs, adding ecopoints, or integrating missions over public toilets. You can also add your own quests!
  • … the concept of an “advanced stopping line” for cyclists? These allow bicycles to wait at traffic lights in front of other traffic. In OSM these can be tagged as cycleway=asl.
Other “geo” things
  • Even vultures can recognise the international border between Spain and Portugal. (Or rather, the difference in legislation between both countries regarding abandonment of cattle carcasses.)
  • Many economists claim that larger cities are more productive than smaller cities, usually known as the agglomeration effect. Tom Forth, of ODI Leeds, writes in CityMetrics that this does not apply to Birmingham because of poor public transport.
  • In a tweet, Simon Küstenmacher refers to a publication by the World Economic Forum. The publication explains five “maps that reveal the world’s remaining wildernesses.”
  • Mike Blackmore posted an animation on Twitter showing how almost all rivers in Europe have “developed” or straightened over the past centuries.William du Plooy posted a similar shocking comparison: The deforestation in Mozambique.

The Magic Roundabout – in OSM with some “mapping for the renderer” 1 | © Alby (CC BY-SA 2.0)

Mapping
  • User yumean1119 announced that voting has started for the improved proposal (automatic translation) on the use of highway=cycleway in Japan. The vote ends 14 April.
  • Silent Spike proposed leisure=inflatable_park for playgrounds with inflatable equipment and asks for comments on his proposal.
  • If you’ve ever wanted to add a tag to show that a railway track is not used regularly for scheduled services, including trams and subways, you might be interested in SelfishSeahorse’s proposal. The Request for Comments period has just started and feedback is much appreciated.
  • Warin proposes a new way to mark areas of steps such as the Spanish Steps in Rome. His proposal is now up for discussion.
  • The vote on the proposal that was drafted for better differentiation of various kinds of police facilities has been postponed to allow more discussion on the topic.
Community
  • A number of people have expressed concern about the way the development of iD is organised and specifically how iD is influencing tagging in OSM. This time Frederik Ramm, board member of both OSMF and the German chapter of OSM, raised his concerns and asked for feedback. (automatic translation)
  • An issue on GitHub about tagging track type in the iD editor became contentious. @matkoniecz suggested that iD deliberately pushes “probably not safe for most cars” as a definition for highway=track, and Bryan Housel, iD maintainer, responded “I basically just disregard everything on the tagging mailing list and the OSM wiki”. This was used as an example in the discussion referred to in the previous item…
  • The application period for this year’s Google Summer of Code is now open and, as in previous years, OSM has been been accepted as a mentoring organisation. You, as a student, have the chance of getting paid while working on open source software projects such as OSM.
  • Former OSMF board member Ilya Zverev pens a critique (automatic translation) of OSM’s “do-ocracy”.
  • OpenStreetMap Belgium published an article titled Heritage in Flanders and Crowd-Sourced Projects. They explain how to add information about heritage sites in OSM and Wikimedia projects such as Wikipedia, Wikidata and Wikimedia Commons. The article doesn’t just focus on gathering and adding information but also on how to get and use information on historical places.
OpenStreetMap Foundation Events
  • The Albanian Open Source Conference OSCAL 2019, which will take place on 18 and 19 May 2019 in Tirana, Albania, is looking for speakers.
  • For mappers who like to plan well in advance: The FOSSGIS 2020, a geospatial conference in Germany that covers many open source, open data and OSM topics, will be held on 11 to 14 March 2020 in Freiburg in Breisgau, Germany. The article also features highlights of the recent conference. (automatic translation)
Humanitarian OSM
  • Following requests received by HOT from several humanitarian partners they are providing support to assist on the ground teams already providing humanitarian aid in Mozambique, Malawi and Zimbabwe after Cyclone Idai. HOT is specifically looking for people with experience as Data specialist or Partner liaison. Apparently, HOT also allows applications from people requiring reimbursement for their activity.
  • After Cyclone Idai hit Mozambique and Zimbabwe, HOT is looking for help to support the local emergency response such as Doctors Without Borders. The article lays out different ways you can support the efforts.
  • The openrouteservice instance for disaster management, operated by the Heidelberg Institute for Geoinformation Technology, is supporting HOT’s activation following Cyclone Idai by updating the data for routing almost hourly.
Maps
  • The MapOSMaptic instance at osm-baustelle.de has implemented a hillshading overlay.
  • Andrew Harvey announced the re-launch of a modernised version of BeyondTracks. BeyondTracks started life in 2012 with the aim of helping people find enjoyable walks around Sydney, Australia. The scope of the site has expanded to cover all of Australia and people who would like to suggest a walk are encouraged to contact BeyondTracks.
switch2OSM
  • A Spanish version of the NewsHereNow website/webapp is now available.Simply click on the “Use my GPS location” button to find the physically nearest, non-chain (“local”) restaurants. If your favourite restaurant is missing, please make sure it (including its website URL) is on OpenStreetMap. There is also a direct link to OpenStreetMap centred at your nearest intersection.
Open Data
  • EldoHub and OpenStreetMap Kenya received funding from Mapbox and the UK government to take part in the 2019 Open Data Day, on 2 March 2019. The Open Knowledge Foundation blogged about the events in Kenya. These took place in EldoHub, a technology innovation hub in Uasin Gishu County; and in Nairobi, where an open mapping track was held to discuss topics such as open spatial data and crowdsourced mapping.
  • ČÚZK, the Czech national survey agency, just published some of their data for commercial and non-commercial use as open data. We are getting another great source for OpenStreetMap in the Czech Republic.
  • The map at electricitymap.org visualises CO₂ emissions and other details about countries’ mix of the production and consumption of energy. The map is currently in German only. However, the project is open source and the developers are asking for help with translation.
Software
  • Nick Whitelegg announced the release of Hikar 0.2.0, an augmented reality app for walkers and hikers. The app is available for Android and the code is open source. The app, which helps the user with footpaths and signposts on the camera feed, now covers the whole of Europe.
  • User clementroux writes (automatic translation) in his blog about his app Next2Me, which finds and displays facilities with the key amenity=* in an adjustable radius around the current location – of course based on OSM.
Releases
  • JOSM has been updated to version 14945. The validator received various improvements and the Add Tag dialog shows now last used tags not only last added tags.
  • Version 0.12 of the GraphHopper Routing Engine has been released. Turn restrictions and turn costs are now supported in the speed mode, the Isochrone module was made compatible with public transit and the average speed calculation was improved.
  • User Wambacher is constantly updating his OSM Software Watchlist, which includes almost all OSM-related software along with the date of their latest release. Most recently Basecamp, Mapillary, Vespucci and many others received an update. Wambacher is highlighting one new addition: OSHDB, a high-performance data analysis platform for OSM’s full-history data.
Did you know …
  • … how to tag a bus bay where buses can stop without blocking traffic? The tag bus_bay can be added to the node of the stopping position of the bus – or it can be added to the road, representing the full length of the bay. JOSM’s PT_Assistant plugin provides support for adding them conveniently on ways with its double split map mode.
  • [1] … the “Magic Roundabout“? On OSM it looks like this.
OSM in the media
  • Le Monde describes (automatic translation) how local mappers in various African cities are using the JungleBus app to map local bus routes.
  • eepublishers in South Africa understand more about the threat to OpenStreetMap posed by the EU Copyright Directive than members of the European Parliament. Or should the EU MPs be interest-driven?
Other “geo” things
  • The deployment of “Strava Scramblers” to reduce conflicts at popular spots made local riders angry.(This April fool’s day article caught many readers off guard).
  • The AGILE conference in Limassol, Cyprus (17 to 20 June 2019), which is about Geospatial Technologies for Local and Regional Development, will organise a workshop called “GEOgraphical and CULTural aspects of Geo-information: Issues and Solutions” and invites you to submit a short OSM paper.

Mapping
  • mapmeld made an interesting analysis of language clusters by using Unicode code points. They also detected outliers and odd forms of vandalism.
  • The vote on the proposal “Fashion accessory shop” has begun and runs until 8th April 2019.
  • The vote on “Substations functions” ended. The proposal did not achieve the necessary majority.
Community
  • alexkemp describes how he resolves problems encountered with OSMTracker 0.7 when pictures aren’t georeferenced. He shows how he restores the missing data.
  • SK53 wanted to identify areas of social housing in England. He shows in his blog how he was able to create suitable useful polygons from an open data list of individual properties with PostGIS clustering. He suggests that such approaches may have broader applicability to OSM data.
  • Ilya Zverev recently started working for the taxi company Juno. He describes how GPX tracks from the Juno app are being aggregated and how they can be used to keep OpenStreetMap up-to-date with very fresh data. This data is a lot easier to work with than the GPX tracks stored by OSM, which may cover multiple changes in the road network. He also presented on this subject at FOSDEM in Brussels, and his talk was recorded.
Events
  • FOSS4G Argentina, a conference with workshops and presentations, takes place from 9th – 12th of April 2019 in Buenos Aires. Registration is open and it includes a workshop on how to use JOSM for editing by (@Hernan)
  • The Linuxwochen 2019 tour through Austria will be in Vienna from May 2 – 4. The article contains some links to video recordings of earlier Linux weeks. (automatic translation)
  • Entur and Ruter are hosting an OpenTripPlanner Summit in Oslo on 3rd April. The proceedings will be live-streamed.
Humanitarian OSM
  • HOT has created a new development community for the Tasking Manager with further partnerships with Microsoft and Bing Maps. Over the next few months, work will begin on the design for integrating machine-learning and improving workflow performance of the Tasking Manager. Additionally open building datasets for Uganda and Tanzania will be created.
  • In order to be able to help people in crisis areas quickly, NGO helpers depend on high-quality maps. For many areas, these maps must first be produced. In doing so, Doctors Without Borders is supported by modern technology and by thousands of volunteers. On Tuesday 2nd of April 2019 from 19:00 – 22:00 interested people will meet for a Missing Maps Mapathon in Berlin.
Maps
  • PrivateMajory tweets a 3-D effect map made using QGIS and then enhanced in Blender.
  • DJI appears to be using (in certain countries) OSM data in their Fly Safe GEO ZONE Map
    (several examples). A tweet and emails have been sent to DJI requesting correct attribution, but sadly there was no reply from DJI.
  • The OpenStreetMap.be website now has a brand-new “How To” page with some tutorials and example code to demonstrate on how to use OSM and OSMBE base layer.
  • The first version of the Baby Map was published. It represents the tags that are relevant for parents of small children. However, the data in OSM is still a bit thin.
Programming
  • The German forum discusses (automatic translation) the categorisation of notes on osm.org. The forest of “Notes” markers is often dense and a categorisation by urgency or keywords could have a positive effect on the processing of the messages. User miche101 arranges notes on a map assigning different symbols to the markers based on keywords.
  • The GISience News Blog of the University of Heidelberg previews a new way to query spatial links in the OpenStreetMap history database OSHDB.
Did you know …
  • … the 2 Minute introduction videos to help beginners get started with OpenStreetMap and mapping for HOT-projects? Vitor George reminds us of the possibility to add subtitles to these YouTube videos.
  • … how to tag an area that is covered by trees, but neither tagged as landuse=forest nor natural=wood such as for example a cemetery? These can be tagged using landcover = trees along with their default landuse tags.
  • … the smartphone app ViewRanger ?
OSM in the media
  • The Free Software Foundation (FSF) recognised OpenStreetMap with the 2018 Free Software Award for Projects of Social Benefit and Deborah Nicholson with the Award for the Advancement of Free Software. Kate Chapman received the award from Richard M. Stallman at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and gave a speech on behalf of OSM/OSMF community.
  • The Open Mapping Group at McGill University in Montreal, Canada, hosted an indoor mapping party in the face of frosty weather.
Other “geo” things
  • The International Telecommunication Union (ITU) published a report on reliefweb.int about the use of disruptive technologies in disaster management. The digital technologies that are supported by many volunteers around the world in the crowdsourcing projects such as OSM are highlighted in particular.
  • Nazi spies, untroubled by the Soviet authorities, made a complete map of Moscow during the late 1930s.
  • Yahoo Japan news reported that Google Maps data of Japan has deteriorated. Users assume that the data source has switched, because the copyright attribution of Zenrin has disappeared.

  • Mapbox reports that it enhanced its living map platform with proprietary data from Zenrin, a Japanese map publisher. It is not clear as to whether enhanced was used synonymously for “replaced OSM”.
  • It’s not just OSM that suffers from the occasional broken polygon. Simon Poole spotted woods near Zurich which have disappeared on Here and Bing maps.
  • The book Time for mapping: Cartographic temporalities deals with the entry of the temporal into maps in the digital age and contemporary mapping practices.
  • The children’s book Lindsey, the GIS Specialist introduces the basics of GIS. This is one of a small series published by the US-based surveying firm Bolton & Menk, based on the job roles of their own employees.
  • A Guardian quiz shows population density maps of various cities. Can you identify them? Or do you have to guess?.
  • Esri announces on their ArcGIS blog that the new March version (previously beta) of the OpenStreetMap Vector Basemap is now freely available in ArcGIS.
  • On the south coast of Norway the first underwater restaurant in Europe opened (automatic translation). Potential visitors have to wait half a year to get a reservation due to it being booked out. It is still only mapped as a construction site in OSM.

OpenStreetMap protest against Art 13 of the EU Copyright Directive 1 | © OpenStreetMap

[Actual Category]
  • Michael Reichert suggests turning off OSM services or adding banners to protest against the EU plan to implement the new, controversial, Copyright Directive. However, the question remains as to why the protest against EU politics is more important than existing or proposed restrictions of freedom elsewhere.
About us
  • The transfer of weeklyOSM to the FOSSGIS server and the subsequent necessary maintenance work has been completed. Users might have noticed some minor interruptions in service last weekend whilst this was taking place. We would like to thank Peter Barth and Andreas Hubel for the transfer. We especially want to thank Anthony Bennett aka @internetgeog of www.internetgeography.net for many years of administration of the site, which he has maintained exemplarily since 2014.
Mapping
  • Jan S proposes better differentiation between various kinds of police facilities. Jan has drafted a proposal and is seeking comments.
  • Members of the Polytechnic University of Milan (Politecnico di Milano) created a deforestation mapping wiki page to improve the understanding and mapping of land coverage to make analysis and visualisation of environmental issues such as deforestation easier.
  • Paul Allen asks whether superroutes are good, bad or ugly. In his post on the tagging mailing list he mentions some pros and cons of the controversial construct. During the discussion it was also asked whether relations of type=route containing child relations should be preferred over superrelations.
  • Antoine Riche pointed to undiscussed wiki changes about cycleway tagging which resulted in a long discussion about how to deal with oneway restrictions.
  • German mappers are voting on the deprecation of relations of type associatedStreet in Germany.
Community Imports OpenStreetMap Foundation
  • The minutes of the OSMF Licence Working Group meeting of 14 February have been published.
  • The OSM Operations Team announced on Twitter that one of OSM’s tile caches received a Denial of Service attack by someone using Amazon servers and an Load Impact User-Agent.
Events
  • The FOSS4G North America, an open geospatial technology and business conference, will take place from 15 to 18 April 2019 in San Diego, USA. The program is available on the conference’s homepage.
  • The next mapathon of MAMAPA will take place on 28 March at the Abendakademie in Mannheim. Beyond the humanitarian objective of the Mapathon, MAMAPA promotes the integration of new immigrants in Germany, in which locals and migrants map in tandem. Through the joint work prejudices and stereotypical thinking are reduced and mutual trust is strengthened.
  • The 7th (seventh!) annual conference organised by OpenStreetMap France will take place from 14 to 16 June in Montpellier (34), on the campus of the Paul Valéry University. Proposals for presentations in 5′, 25′, 55′ or even 2-hour workshops will be accepted until 15 April.
Humanitarian OSM
  • Russell Deffner calls for help with mapping flooded areas in Mozambique and Zimbabwe exacerbated by Cyclone Idai. More information about current tasks and how you can help can be found on the corresponding wiki page.
  • Nina Strochlic covers in National Geographic how the Bidibidi refugee camp in North Uganda is transforming into a permanent city. She points out how humanitarian mapping, HOT in particular, has helped in documenting the transformation and provided valuable data for planning and managing the quickly evolving area.
  • A story on MapGive, an initiative of the U.S. Department of State’s Humanitarian Information Unit, details how updated aerial imagery has helped crowdsourced humanitarian mapping. MapGive helped mapping efforts of Missing Maps in Uganda and Bangladesh by providing support with current imagery. The blog post shows differences in aerial imagery over the years and a before and after comparison of OSM data around refugee camps in Northern Uganda.
Open Data
  • The regional conference and conference on Latin American Open Data Abrelatam19 will be held at Quito from 28 to 30 August 2019.
Software
  • TriMet in 2009 launched the open source trip planner “OpenTripPlanner” that combines public transport transit with walking and biking. The tool, which can use public transport data in General Transit Feed Specification “GTFS” format and is based on OSM data, gained some popularity within the OSM community. The company announced a new version of its tool that can also incorporate data from Uber, SHARE NOW (formerly car2go) and BIKETOWN and uses real-time locations of vehicles and bikes to calculate routes. A beta version with data for Portland, OR, USA is available.
  • The Android app OSMTracker, which is popular with OSM mappers, no longer shows maps as a background to tracks. OSMTracker uses the generic user-agent from the osmdroid library which was recently blocked by the OSM Operations Team. The tile usage policy requires application-specific user agents.
  • Fabian Kowatsch, of HeiGIT, announced that the HeiGIT Big Spatial Data team published a public world-wide instance of the ohsome OSM History Analysis Platform including an API, an updated dashboard and the beta prototype map interface ohsomeHEX (OSM History Explorer). All this allows you to analyse the evolution of any OSM tag for arbitrary regions and time periods in a simple way. Several examples are given in earlier blogs which now can be adapted for arbitrary regions around the world. Ideas for further enhancements are most welcome.
Releases
  • Version 5 of Openrouteservice was published. The service, developed by The Heidelberg Institute for Geoinformation Technology, bears the name of the Jupiter moon Io.
Did you know …
  • … the OSM Software Watchlist (release status) by Wambacher? It has been extended to cover another 15 OSM applications.
  • … the tagging of a centre turn lane? This is described using the tags lanes:both_ways= 1 and turn:both_ways = left.
Other “geo” things
  • Dr. Michele M Tobias asked #gischat on Twitter “Can you tell your GIS/mapping career story in one tweet?” Read the nice stories and please tell your OSM story as well.
  • As Marius Watz has tweeted, the Norwegian municipality Trysil decided not to name streets but numbered thousands of cabin buildings instead. The website nrk.no reported that the step caused chaos for tourists, desperate cottage owners and emergency services.
  • Bryan Housel asks for help to “link branded businesses in OpenStreetMap to wikidata”.
  • The Guardian reports on desire lines: “illicit trails that defy the urban planners”. (Note: there is a small amount of data in OSM identifying such paths, see 1 and 2).
  • In an article on Medium, Caitlin Dewey covers the story of the Fruit Belt neighbourhood in Buffalo, New York which had been replaced on Google Maps by something called “Medical Park”. The article follows the residents and their investigation into how Google may have acquired inaccurate neighbourhood data from Pitney Bowes and how that came to be. She also points out how little control the community had over the mislabelling. In comparison, the neighbourhood had only been added to OSM a few days ago with plenty of room for map improvements in the area.
  • Jorge Andres, a volunteer cartographer for MapAction, discusses, on their corporate blog, how to most effectively represent topographical relief when mapping volcanic hazards. He suggests that 3D visualisations are more effective, and in 2D contour lines tend to obscure significant details.
  • Tom Lee, Mapbox’s lead on policy, testified before the US Senate Judiciary Committee regarding privacy law reform.

MapRoulette has been revised – now version 3.2 1 | map data © OpenStreetMap contributors

Uploadfilter – Article 13 EU Copyright Directive
  • Michael Reichert announces that openstreetmap.de will again protest against Article 13 of the EU Copyright Directive. (automatic translation)
  • Heise Online reports (automatic translation) that the German Wikipedia will be turned off for one day on 21 March as a protest against article 13 of the new EU Copyright Directive.
Mapping
  • Following the decision to cease rendering leisure=common in OSM’s main map style Carto, a replacement is being discussed on the HOT mailing list. Apparently the requirements for the replacement are not too difficult; as Andrew Buck wrote “I would accept anything the community comes up with as long as it renders or the rendering rules are updated before the change.”
  • François Lacombe announced on the tagging mailing list the start of voting for the proposal to improve the tagging of substations and the network hierarchy in general.
  • The proposal for highway=via_ferrata and via_ferrata_scale=* for tagging protected climbing routes in the Alps and certain other locations has been rewritten. Comments and suggestions are welcomed.
  • SK53 wrote on his “Maps matter” blog about mapping roof-top solar panels in Nottingham, UK. He summarises what he learnt and makes some suggestions for finding them in other places. Also mcld found that solar panels in London were harder to find. Both activities arose because of an animated discussion on Twitter, initiated by Jack Kelly, about using machine learning to find solar panels.
  • naoliv announced in his user diary the availability of a new JOSM layer specific for Brazilian street names, which can be used to take over street names from IBGE‘s Base de faces de logradouros. In his post he explains the issues with the previous solution and how the new layer can be used.
  • raphaelmirc explains how to use MapRoulette. (automatic translation)
Community
  • We recently reported about the issue of non-compliant attributions by OSM data consumers. Our commentary suggested that, based on the responses, it appears that the topic is not that important for other mappers, or they are resigned to current practices. However, we heavily underestimated the momentum the topic gained after writing the text and we missed the chance to incorporate the feedback right before publishing our last issue. We’re sorry for our oversight.Martin Koppenhöfer is right when complaining about it. The responses on the missing attribution are noteworthy. For example, Paul Norman points to the fact that sometimes users of our data find room for their logo but not for the attribution required when using our data. Martijn van Exel provided an example how to attribute even on an iPhone screen. Simon Poole adds that the majority of data consumers are providing acceptable attribution or at least fix it when pointed to the issue. He also indicated that the community can expect a draft attribution guideline for discussion in the upcoming months. However, there are many, many more contributions to the discussion that are worth reading.
  • OpenStreetMap has been accepted as a mentoring organisation for this year’s Google Summer of Code. On the OSM developers’ mailing list, Tobias Knerr calls for more project ideas to be added to the project ideas wiki page.
  • The Swiss Federal Railways SBB has set up (automatic translation) an internal group of volunteers called “OSM at SBB” to discuss OSM related things.
  • The blog of OpenCage data, the operator of OpenCage Geocoder, has published an interview with Richard Fairhurst, the maker of Deriviste (and a few other things).
  • Jochen Topf wrote a blog post about the changes for openstreetmapdata.com users after the move to a new server following FOSSGIS’ funding agreement for the new server infrastructure.
Imports
  • User Hokkosha published (automatic translation) a proposal for a data import (automatic translation) from Hokkaido Takushoku Bus and asked for feedback. This proposal will be produced in English after discussion in Japanese.
Events
  • The OSM group of Nancy and its surroundings meets (automatic translation) regularly in partnership with the “Fabrique Collective de la Culture du Libre”.
Humanitarian OSM
  • The World Bank Group has contracted the Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team to digitise buildings in Tanzania from satellite imagery. By adding this data to OSM it is intended to help develop an off-grid energy sector, to complement the national grid, by allowing businesses to identify sites that could be served by mini-grids and solar home systems.
  • HOT published an article on the International Women’s Day 2019 with their highlights of gender diversity activity from the last 12 months.
  • sevendaysvt.com published an article about a humanitarian mapping event, co-hosted by the University of Vermont’s Humanitarian Mapping Club and Code for BTV, where attendees were introduced to OSM by mapping buildings in rural Africa.

  • A German version of the NewsHereNow website/webapp is now available (English version). Simply click on the “Use my GPS location” button to find the physically nearest, non-chain (“local”) restaurants. If your favourite restaurant is missing, please make sure to add it to OpenStreetMap. For convenience, under the HERE/HIER tab is a button that takes you to OpenStreetMap centred at your nearest intersection.

  • The support for QGIS 2.18 LTR (Long Term Release) has ended. Users are asked to upgrade to QGIS 3.4 LTR.
  • Wille published a blog post that explains how to set up some tools to receive notifications from OSMCha via Telegram or e-mail. That way you will be notified whenever there are new changesets that match a filter you saved on OSMCha.
  • MapRoulette is now at version 3.2. The latest version of the micro-task platform for OSM features a new design, a new user dashboard, improved task completion flow, and much more. Martijn van Exel summarises the new features in his diary.
  • In his OSM diary Simon Poole celebrates the 10th anniversary of Vespucci and thanks all of the contributing developers. He also gives a preview of upcoming features such as multi-polygon support, turn-restrictions rendering, and a revamped style configuration.
Programming
  • Amon Santana, from HeiGIT, reports about a number of interesting new features in the latest version of the interactive OpenRouteService API Playground.
Releases
  • Version 3.3 of OsmAnd has been released. The team removed Facebook and Firebase analytics from the free version – the paid version OsmAnd+ already didn’t include them. The application now offers navigation for public transport, although still in a beta phase, recieved a redesigned directions menu and improved quick action menu, as well as the information about a route.
Did you know …
  • … Anita Graser’s “Free and Open Source GIS Ramblings“? It is a series of discussions about GIS data analysis.
  • … about Mappics? This is an open source map based travel photos gallery, with automatic place and weather descriptions of the very moment the photos were taken.
  • … that there are shops that sell goods with as little packaging as possible? Customers can bring their own reusable packaging to reduce waste. OSM recognises this using the tag bulk_purchase = yes
  • … the overview of all existing OSM Working Groups?
Other “geo” things
  • Gonzalo López published on NOSOLOSIG an article called “Geocoding of addresses: a pending subject”. (automatic translation)
  • Sascha Fendrich, from HeiGIT, describes a study about semantic association rule learning using OSM data. He presents an example to explain the technique used and its potential for finding exceptions to general rules that can be used for data quality analysis.
  • Martijn van Exel explains how to use the new OpenStreetCam upload scripts.

OpenCycleMap presents the existing OSM data very nuanced 1 | Maps © Thunderforest, Data © OpenStreetMap contributors

About us
  • We have good news! weeklyOSM will have a version in Brazilian Portuguese (pt-br), aimed mainly at the Brazilian community. Collaborators are welcome! Please contact us if you want to help.
Mapping
  • Yuu Hayashi postponed the start of voting for the proposal of Japan Tagging/Road Type. As the content of the proposal has changed due to the discussion, he has asked for further feedback.
  • Mateusz Konieczny created wiki pages for tiger:CPI, tiger:CLASSFP, tiger:FUNCSTAT, tiger:LSAD, tiger:MTFCC in an attempt to document unclear meaning of these tags since each is used more than 22,000 times. Anyone aware of the meaning and use of any of these tags is welcomed to contribute. Currently all of them are described as “it is dubious whatever it should be present on any object”.
  • The recently released version of JOSM now complains about a popular imprecise tag shop=yes, used over 149,000 times despite better tagging usually being available. In the next release, available as JOSM-latest, there are some other new warnings, for example about: leisure=nature_reserve on nodes, boundary=administrative and landuse=residential tagged on a single object and suspiciously narrow highway=pedestrian.
  • The proposal for the key departures=, which was designed to indicate the departure times for any given stop, was declined.
  • The proposals for natural=peninsula and natural=isthmus have both been approved.
Community
  • Issues with attributing OSM when using our data are nearly as old as our project. Richard Fairhurst addresses the issue of non-compliant attributions in a comprehensive post on the mailing list. Based on the responses it appears that the issue is not that important for other mappers or they are resigned to current practices. (Nabble)
  • The annual general meeting for the Swiss OpenStreetMap Association will take place on Saturday 30 March 2019 in Basel, Switzerland.
  • On the occasion of the OSM France’s donation campaign (we reported) ZDNet presents the OSM project under the title “Small fundraising for large project”.
Imports
  • Giovanni Cascafico announces the planned import of Italian fuel stations using a dataset from the Ministry of Economic Development (Ministero dello Sviluppo Economico).
  • Microsoft has released 12,663,475 computer generated building footprints for Canada under the Open Data Commons Open Database License (ODbL). Canadian contributors signal problems that need to be fixed before import. Please discuss it with the community if you plan to use the data. This follows the release of 125,192,184 building footprints for the USA some months ago.
  • After the Digiroad Bus Stop Import by the Finnish Transport Agency (FTA), the Helsinki Region Transport Authority (HSL) is now also planning an import of stop positions in the Helsinki region and announced their intention in the Finnish OSM forum. Further information can be found on the corresponding Wiki page.
OpenStreetMap Foundation
  • The minutes of the OSMF board meeting on 20 February were published. They discussed the GlobalLogic issue, Brexit, the 2019 budget, and whether the Etiquette page should stay on the editable OSM wiki.
  • FOSSGIS e.V., the German OSMF chapter, will fund (automatic translation) the operation of the server infrastructure for openstreetmapdata.com, a data download service provided by Jochen Topf and Christoph Hormann.
  • OpenStreetMap UK reports about the success of their Talent Directory as Andy Mabbett delivered an OSM training event for Open Data Manchester. They hope to announce further exciting projects which any UK-based user can join here.
  • Kate Chapman, from the OSMF board, sent an email to all OSMF members and announced a “regular update email to help OSMF members to stay on top of all the latest”. Kate mentioned the following points in her email: OSMF Updates – February 2019, links to the web pages of the Working Groups, the Board of Directors, the Local Chapters and the Advisory Board, and she also mentioned the page where the previous reports can be found.
  • The association OpenStreetMap France has published (automatic translation) a post explaining the services provided by the association. It also gives an idea of the change in the demand on their servers and tries to explain its variation.
  • The minutes of the Membership Working Group meeting of 22 February have been published.
Events
  • Impressions and recordings of the lectures of last year’s State of the Map Asia, in Bangalore, have now been published.
  • OpenStreetMap is offering scholarships to attend the State of the Map 2019 in Heidelberg thanks to funding from sponsors. Three levels of scholarships exist and you can apply until 30 March 2019.
  • The call for participation for the State of the Map 2019 is now open. If you can contribute with a talk or presentation for one of the tracks: OSM Basics, Community and Foundation, Mapping, Cartography, Software Development, Data Analysis and Data Model, or User Experiences you are asked to submit a proposal by 25 April 2019. Two innovations need to be highlighted:
      1. The track “OSM Basics” for presentations intended for people not overly familiar with the OSM ecosystem (20 minutes – like most other lectures), and
      1. The category “Extended lecture” for “Great ideas” (40 minutes).

    Presentations for the “Academic Track” can be submitted until 30 April.

  • Melanie Eckle reported about two OSM related events during the International Week against Racism in Heidelberg. On 11 March the Mamapa project is being introduced (teaching immigrants about humanitarian mapping) and on 21 March there is a related mapathon.
Humanitarian OSM
  • HOT is asking advanced mappers using JOSM to map buildings in the Colombian region Barranquilla to prepare for a refugee influx from Venezuela as the political situation continues to deteriorate. The call is limited to experienced mappers due to problems with some pre-existing errors from prior mapping.
  • HOT is offering a job as an “Advisory Board member” focusing on finance.
  • The Heidelberg University details the past and future of MapSwipe, an app for phones that can be used to map human settlements from satellite imagery. During the past 2.5 years the app has helped to identify places that have not been mapped so far. The team is currently working on extending the scope to allow the mapping of individual building footprint geometries.
  • CartONG and 510/ Netherland Red Cross have measured the Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 2.8. “Achieve universal health coverage” in DR Congo and Malawi using the openrouteservice isochrone API to assess the accessibility of health centres. They also developed a demo dashboard using openrouteservice for that. More info.
Maps
  • [1] Sara Acosta investigated (automatic translation), on eldiario.es, an image of the cycleway infrastructure of Europe, that is often shared on the Internet, and why this version, created from OSM data, is incorrect. By contacting Andy Allan, developer of OpenCycleMap, she found that the exact origin of the graphic is uncertain. The OpenCycleMap presents the existing OSM data in much more nuanced manner.
switch2OSM Open Data
  • After a two-month competition, OpenStreetCam now has more than 2.2 million images in Australia and New Zealand. The Telenav Map Team used these contributions to train OpenStreetCam so it can now automatically detect more than 80 sign types specific to those countries.
  • Esri revealed in the ArcGIS Blog the possibility of displaying large datasets in 3D using the ArcGIS API for JavaScript. This removes the previous limit of 2,000 objects. The article explains, with examples, how to create a 3D map overview with OSM data.
Software
  • HeiGIT introduced openfuelservice. This new service offers close to “real world” estimations in terms of fuel consumption (gasoline and diesel), emissions (CO2, CO, NOx, THC) as well as cost assumptions for a growing number of car models. A first experimental version has been integrated into openrouteservice maps. This way you can check for the ecological footprint of your planned route. At the moment it is using a combination of data from the British “Vehicle Certification Agency” and the steadily growing “Open Citizen Science Platform” enviroCar.
  • The OSM Tools plugin for QGIS has been superseded by the ORS Tools plugin. Nils Nolde points out the various changes that have been made to the plugin besides the name change. Emphasis is placed on the revamped GUI. The plugin integrates Openrouteservice APIs into QGIS.
Programming
  • In his OSM diary user kastellano presented the project Videomapia. It combines georeferenced videos on YouTube in a map view with an OSM layer. The stored trips are displayed as an overlay and make it possible to exactly start the videos at the selected location.
  • The OpenLayers project has asked for donations for work on version 6. Of the USD 300,000 collected so far, USD 150,000 have come from Swisstopo.
Releases
  • Quincy Morgan announced the update of iD to version 2.14.3. The new version allows the user to toggle validation rules on and off, improves validation functionality, fixes five reported bugs and brings some more improvements.
  • A new stable version of JOSM has been released. Version 19.02 mainly introduces support for Canadian English and adds a new function for calculating distance to the nearest GPX point, as well as various other minor enhancements.
  • Tilemill 1.0.0 has been released and is a reunion with the fork Tileoven by florianf. Tilemill was originally developed by Mapbox as a development environment for CartoCSS styles, before they switched to JSON-based styles and a proprietary software-as-a-service platform called Mapbox Studio and left Tilemill to its own devices.
Did you know …
  • … freemap.sk, the open, interactive map of Slovakia based on OSM?
  • … the campaign “Fridays For Future”, the Friday protests of students across Europe which were triggered by the 16 years old Swedish activist Greta Thunberg? The interactive map is based on OSM.
  • … the difference between cycleway= opposite and cycleway = opposite_lane? Both indicate that cyclists are allowed to ride in either direction down a one-way street. “opposite_lane” additionally adds that the cycle lane is marked.
Other “geo” things
  • Clemens Jacobs has been looking into the data quality of citizen science observations of organisms. This research aims at using geographic context as an information source for estimating the plausibility of an observation, e.g. of a bird, which was reported to a citizen science portal collecting such data from volunteers. To this end, approaches were developed which use OpenStreetMap to capture the geographic context. He used the ohsome, OpenStreetMap History Analytics platform by HeiGIT, to predict the plausibility of a new observation of a species.
  • For the online magazine CityMetric, Henry Dyer looked at London railway stations that cross borough boundaries. Using OSM data he consolidated his findings into a short list.
  • The website Sketchplanations illustrates the coastline paradox in a short sketch in its weekly edition.

Mapping
  • If the inventor of highway=unclassified had known how many discussions were going to be held about it, he/she would probably have named it differently. Florian Lohoff asked a question about the distinction between highway=unclassified and highway=residential and has received around 50 responses so far and still with an upward trend. (Nabble)
  • Stefan Keller presented (automatic translation) an improvement to his webtool, which converts freely formatted opening hours copied from web pages into the syntax of opening_hours. As previously noted on the Swiss list (automatic translation) he is seeking feedback.
  • Mapillary features an article about the lesser-known OSM tool, Deriviste. Deriviste, introduced by Richard Fairhurst in October 2018, allows users to create OSM data while looking at Mapillary images. For example, a click on an image is translated into a data point. The comprehensive blog post contains background information and details how Deriviste should be used, including practical examples.
  • Yuu Hayashi announced (automatic translation) a new proposal to change the Japanese road types. This proposal includes cutbacks of redundant tags and content improvement that corrects the gap between global standards and Japanese tagging. He asks for community feedback and is thinking about starting the vote on 10 March.
Community
  • OpenStreetMap France announces (automatic translation) on Twitter that a donation campaign has raised 10,081 €. The first use of this funds was to buy extra server RAM.
  • On the Talk-GB mailing list Frederik Ramm asks if anyone knows of a non-profit organisation that has moved from the UK to elsewhere (prompted by the "lack of clarity" over Brexit). Simon Poole elaborates some more reasons – including that the UK doesn’t have a form of incorporation that is well suited to a non-profit like OSM.
  • The nominations closed on 20 February 2019 for the board election of OSM US and five people will run for five seats.
  • The "Mapper of the Month" February 2019 chosen by OpenStreetMap Belgium is Volker Schmidt (OSM voschix). He has contributed to OSM for nearly 9 years and recently has been mainly active in Padova, where he currently lives.
OpenStreetMap Foundation
  • The minutes of the Licence Working Group meeting on 14 February 2019 have been published. Topics included the handling of inquiries from law enforcement agencies and a letter from the Belgian Ministry of Defence.
  • "Can you help make OpenStreetMap.org faster in Brazil, or Australia/New Zealand?" asks the Operations Working Group as the demand on OSM services is increasing and for example reaching around 65 Mbps in Brazil.
  • The OSMF Membership Working Group (MWG) uncovered the unusual signups in advance of the recent OSMF board elections and concluded that the signup of 100 employees of the Indian subsidiary of GlobalLogic (GL) was an orchestrated and directed campaign and that the applicants did not sign up voluntarily, personally and individually 1. The findings were sent to the OSMF board at the end of December and later shared with the membership by the MWG. In February GlobalLogic offered to withdraw the memberships following an online meeting between OSMF board and GlobalLogic representatives at the end of January. During the regular board meeting on 20 February 2019 the Board decided to accept GL’s offer to withdraw the memberships. The OSMF also made a summary of the events available to the public.
Humanitarian OSM
  • HOT has set up four mapping tasks after a 7.5-magnitude earthquake struck the Peru-Ecuador border region.
  • HOT is looking for a new logo for its HOT Summit 2019 in Heidelberg, Germany. The deadline for the participation in this contest is 6 March 2019.
  • HeiGIT reports on what’s going on with the MapSwipe app, a micro-tasking app for supporting mapping, for example in the humanitarian sector. A next step is, for example, the integration of the results of machine learning based building detection.
  • Melanie Eckle, from Heidelberg Institute for Geoinformation Technology (HeiGIT), has been invited to present HeiGIT as well as HOT during the Geo4SDGs at the Geospatial World Forum 2019 in Amsterdam. She will provide an overview of current HOT projects.
  • The minutes of the HOT board meeting on 7 February 2019 have been released.
  • The author Nicole Martinelli, who belongs to the team behind the Resiliency Maps website, published an article about the importance of open data and tools for disaster resilience. One interesting point is that she uses San Francisco as an example.
  • HOT announced the availability of an Instagram page, which you can follow to receive the latest updates.
Maps
  • [1] Qwant, "The search engine that respects your privacy", based in Paris, has launched ( automatic translation) "Qwant-Maps". The service is based on OSM data. Qwant follows OSMF’s copyright guidelines and promotes our project with an additional link to LearnOSM.
switch2OSM
  • On his blog Krzysztof Grajek explains the use of prefabricated docker images for setting up one’s own OSM tile server as an alternative to the Google Maps service, which can become expensive if your website has higher traffic volumes.
Open Data
  • The winners of the Open Data Day mini-grants, which are provided by the Open Knowledge organisation, have been announced. Some OSM related projects are amongst the winners.
Software
  • OsmAnd Online GPS Tracker, not to be confused with well known OsmAnd navigation, has been upgraded to version 0.4. The new version allows its users to share the track between specific times and to send their location with a timer, i.e. it stops sending the current location after a defined time.
Programming
  • In a tweet Julien Coupey announced his results of the recent Karlsruhe Hack Weekend, which look interesting even if you are not a Chinese postman.
  • The company Komoot, know for its OSM based cycling and hiking app and the geocoder Photon, has an open vacancy as Backend Engineer.
  • The German Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure is sponsoring the project TARDUR (automatic translation) (Temporal Access Restrictions for Dynamic Ultra-Flexible Routing) of Heidelberg University and GraphHopper GmbH as part of its mFund programme. The project aims to improve the usage of access restrictions with temporal conditions in OSM.
  • mmd would like to introduce limits of 5000 tags per object and 32,000 members per relation for the OSM API. In the ensuing discussion, Simon Poole expresses his doubts about the introduction of "arbitrary" limits.
Releases
  • Quincy Morgan announced the release of the new version of iD. The highlights of version 2.14.0 are the introduction of live issue flagging and feature validation with the inclusion of recommended fixes, integration of Telenav’s ImproveOSM data detection tools to identify missing roads, as well as various other fixes and improvements. The full changelog can be found here.
  • QGIS has reached version 3.6. This version includes new features such as a new decorator for titles, map canvas copyright and title decorations can now be centred on top or bottom, and the requirement to select a feature before you can edit it. There are many more new and improved features that can be read about in the changelog.
  • The lightweight desktop GIS software Simple GIS (for Windows) has been upgraded. Version 11 allows you to build custom data forms, adds support for layer selection when converting pdf to Geotiff, can now deal with ArcGrid and File Geodb datasets, and adds many more new features.
Did you know …
  • … the possibility of recording the bus lines that serve a bus stop without having to record the complete route? The "route_ref" tag allows you to enter the line numbers at a bus stop and thus helps others to enter the complete route later.
  • … the swift LocalFocus-Batch-Geocoder? The geocoder uses open data from OSM, OpenAdresses, and Who’s On First via a copy-and-paste interface.
  • … the wiki page listing the maps generated from OSM?
  • … Joel Hansen’s quick guide to quickly drawing many buildings with JOSM and the buildings_tools plugin?
Other “geo” things
  • Mikel Maron, head of community at Mapbox and an OSMF board member, elaborated on the importance of mapping, open data and crowdsourcing efforts, such as HOT, in responding to natural disasters. Rapidly evolving technologies can help governments, communities, and aid agencies reduce the impact of natural disasters. He points out that on this basis the transport and logistics industry is in a position to support crisis initiatives proactively, promptly and precisely.
