Mapping North Korea a new project from Maarten van den Hoven 1 | Map data © OpenStreetMap contributors, ODbL

Mapping
  • Jean-Louis Zimmerman tweets a few unusual curiosities which may challenge OSM mapping and tagging. (automatic translation)
  • Joseph Eisenberg has posted his proposal for the tag waterway=tidal channel to the tagging mailing list for discussion. It is based on a discussion that took place in September 2018 to map natural tidal waterways.
  • The OSM mapper Simon Legner reported (translation) on the Talk-at mailing list that he added the new layers of the Austrian government’s Open Data portal (OGD) to the editor layer index. He describes more about it on his github page.
  • [1] Mapping North Korea is a new project from Maarten van den Hoven to remotely map North Korea, with a Tasking Manager style web interface.
  • In order to be able to help people in crisis areas quickly, 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 25 June 2019 from 19:00 – 22:00, meet interested people for a Missing Maps Mapathon at Wikimedia in Berlin.
Community
  • Nicolas Chavent published a Twitter moment about two weeks of OSM and free Geomatics training in Brazzaville (Congo) targeted to the local OSM community and stakeholders from the research, development and local authorities. The courses were facilitated with the help of members of Congolese communities and a Togolese mapper with the support of the International Organisation of Francophonie (OIF).
  • On the mailing list OSM-talk the question was asked whether there are volunteers who want to organise a discussion forum at the upcoming SotM about the OSM Editor iD. However, a suggestion was made that it is not a good idea to hold a “tribunal” on iD, but that it would be better to collect ideas by September 1st and then discuss them.
  • The OSM user Joseph Eisenberg asked on the mailing list OSM-talk whether the element data item on OSM Wiki pages should be used for description texts. The reason for this is that he found no or only very short descriptions for the tags, natural=peninsula and natural=isthmus on the wiki pages. When editing the wiki pages he could not find an element for the description and was referred to the element data item by other OSM users. Eisenberg also says that the wiki page for the element is very confusing and therefore its use is not clear to him.
  • A discussion (translation) about the mapping of “unpacked” stores on the German forum, previously tagged with bulk_purchase, was followed by a discussion (translation) on the French forum on the same topic, but independently of each other. Now new tagging is discussed together in English under the heading “Tag[ging] shops accepting that customers bring their own containers”.
Imports
  • HOT have set up a Tasking Manager for computer vision imports.
OpenStreetMap Foundation
  • The minutes of the meeting of the OSMF Data Working Group on 22 May 2019 have been published.
Humanitarian OSM
  • The website geospatialworld has published an article about the Missing Map project. It introduces the project and its goals.
  • Intel Folsom hosted a mapathon with the Missing Maps Project. Estimated attendance was 56 mappers, plus 2 volunteers from the Red Cross and 1 volunteer from Intel to answer their questions. You can read more here.
Maps
  • Said Turksever tweeted about ICT4Society in Turkey, a project using OSM and Mapillary to help improve social inclusion for people with disabilities, and links to the resulting map.
Licences
  • Following a long discussion with Facebook and their map suppliers (Mapbox), Nuno Caldeira asked the Board of OSMF about terminating Facebook’s rights under ODbL. As source of his request he mentioned chapter 9.4 c) of the ODbL. This follows a long discussion about attribution of OSM in February and March this year on the main “talk” list.
Software
  • K_sakanoshita published (Twitter, Facebook) new version of “Machi-aruki Map maker“, used for creating printed maps for disaster planning etc. New features are now available to add cafes and restaurants, fire hydrant icons and labels.
Programming
  • Quincy Morgan suggests in a GitHub ticket that iD from version 3.0 should become a general GeoJSON editor.
Releases
  • In the new release of OsmAnd 2.80 (iOS), Mapillary photos are displayed for navigation, as is already the case on Android. In addition to performance improvements there were many other adjustments. You can read more about this in OsmAnd’s blog.
Did you know …
  • … a few lines of code with the 3-D Tool 3D OSM Buildings lets us rotate a panoramic view.
Other “geo” things
  • The longest glass floor bridge in the world was recently opened in East China as a new attraction in the “Huaxi World Adventure Park” at the Great Wall of China. With a length of 518 m it replaces the previous record holder (488 m). Here’s where you can find this on OSM.
  • Margaret Lee describes in Mapbox’s blog “The route from a blank map to a live map”.
  • Malvika Mahesh, a research intern of the Observer Research Foundation, writes in his article “Drawing Lines On The Internet: Border Conflicts And The Politics Behind Digital Maps” on the different treatment of borders in digital maps. He also praises OpenStreetMap’s “on the ground” rule (see also OSM’s Disputed Territories (PDF) policy – itself not always accepted across the board in OSM) , and criticises Google’s current approach. An interesting link from that article is a map summarising worldwide disputes.
  • World Environment Day took place on 5 June. A post at the University of Heidelberg’s GIScience News Blog links to the global OSM-based climate protection map, with a call to contribute to climate protection through more sustainable lifestyles.
  • The changes in Berlin from being a car-friendly to a bicycle-friendly city can be seen at FixMyBerlin, where the current state of cycle-friendliness is also displayed.
  • BMW published (translation) “safety-relevant traffic data”, collected by BMW vehicles, under the CC-BY-NC-SA license, which excludes commercial use, but which a BMW press release incorrectly describes as “free”.

Mapping
  • The latest version of “How Did You Contribute” by Pascal Neis now uses osmose to display information about the quality of the user’s edits.
  • Facebook’s Maps Team announced the RapiD Editor based on iD, which enables mappers to convert data they extracted using machine learning into OSM features.
  • WiGeoGIS, a contractor of the fuel station chain OMV, announced plans to improve and maintain fuel stations of the brands OMV, AVANTI, Petrom, FE Trading and EuroTruck in OSM. See also the discussion on the Talk mailing list (May, June).
  • Valor Naram put a revised version of changing_table=* tagging to a vote.
  • Developers of the Maps.me navigator, which uses OSM data, created a validator for underground railways (subways/metros) all over the world.
Community
  • Simon Poole made some suggestions on the Tagging mailing list on how to deal with the increasing number of messages and proposals there. There were lots of replies.
  • Recently the Kazakhstan OSM community created a Telegram chat.
OpenStreetMap Foundation
  • Joost Schouppe reports about the OSMF Board meeting in Brussels (including discussing the survey that was carried out beforehand) on the OSM Foundation’s blog.
Events

Humanitarian OSM
  • HOT shares on their blog about an experimental version of the Tasking Manager which incorporates machine learning assistance for various tasks.
  • Simon Johnson writes on Medium about how “big data” in the humanitarian community is often at odds with the idea of “minimum viable data” – the idea that less data is actually more valuable because it’s better quality and easier to verify.
  • In Better Bombing with Machine Learning Frederik Ramm points out that computer vision/machine learning could be used by military forces for aerial bombing, and the OSM community should consider whether we should be so jubilant regarding companies that use those technologies for improving OSM.
Maps
  • Richard Fairhust tweets an example of using Lua to automatically transliterate names whilst processing OSM data for rendering. Post-processing OSM data in this way often removes the need for many name:<iso-code> tags.
  • The map of electoral districts on the website of the Magnitogorsk City (in Russia) is based on OSM.
  • A map of roads that are or will be repaired has been posted on the website of the Russian federal program “Safe and high-quality roads”. It is based on OSM but first you need to choose a region.
Releases
  • A new stable JOSM version (15155) was released. Category icons and a field for filtering background image settings have been added. Dynamic entries in the Background Images menu are displayed in submenus as well as many more improvements.
  • The OsmAnd Online GPS Tracker has been updated to version 0.5. New features are contact search, proxy settings, GPS settings and active markers.
  • Thanks to v2.0 of Babykarte, babies will not lose their way anymore. Or rather, it will become easier for parents to find baby and toddler friendly amenities (map).
Did you know … OSM in the media

  • An interview with Russian mapper Ilya Zverev has been posted on Habr. He spoke about what he did during his two years on the OSMF Board, why the American OSM society is the most friendly and why you need to participate in offline conferences. (automatic translation)
Other “geo” things
  • How to make a Simpsons-inspired map with expressions.
  • John Murray has been using the recent release of Rapids AI, a data science library for GPUs, to compute distances to everywhere in Great Britain from a point in a few seconds.
  • An extract from a forthcoming book by Barbara Tversky discusses “What makes a good map?”
  • An outdoor clothing company has been sneakily adding photos of its products to Wikipedia articles, in an attempt to get their brand higher up in Google image results. Just another danger of an open wiki system that we must be aware of.
  • Daniel J-H announced the release of a new version of RoboSat, which can detect roads and buildings in aerial imagery.
  • Die Welt has an article (automatic translation) about the best apps for water sports enthusiasts.

GREENPEACE Russia switched to OSM 1 | Map data © OpenStreetMap contributors, ODbL © Mapbox

Mapping
  • Christopher Beddow, from Mapillary, has written a blog post about two different ways contributors can use Mapillary data to edit OpenStreetMap.
  • Joseph Eisenberg drafted a proposal for golf=cartpath, which is intended for paths within golf courses that are designated for golf carts.
  • Leif Rasmussen incorporated feedback on his connectivity= proposal and asks for final feedback before he moves to the voting phase. The proposal aims to improve the ability to store much richer data about lanes than is currently possible with turn:lanes=.
  • Joseph Eisenberg proposes unifying the tags for individual pitches within a campsite and suggests deprecating camp_site=camp_pitch and camp_site=pitch and replacing these tags with tourism=camp_pitch.
Community
  • Tense discussions about iD and the legitimation of the iD maintainers to unilaterally decide mapping questions such as the implementation of new tags without the OSM community resurfaced following the widely, on GitHub, OSM’s tagging mailing list and the general mailing list disputed decision to implement a validation rule asking to add highway=footway to railway/public_transport=platform.
    The disputes followed shortly after the invention of nosquare=yes to “resolve all unsquare way issues” which was also widely challenged on GitHub and the general mailing list.
    During the discussion some ideas like an iD fork or potential policies for developers were raised. Unfortunately the discussions escalated and led the iD maintainer Bryan Housel to lock a ticket in GitHub which was seen as rant by others and led SomeoneElse to submit a code of conduct complaint about the used comment.
    The discussion spilled over to the mailing list of the OSM Foundation, where Christine Karch offered a slot at the upcoming SotM on 21–23 September 2019, an offer declined by iD’s key maintainer Bryan Housel.
  • Researchers from Denver & Singapore published a paper entitled Corporate Editors in the Evolving Landscape of OpenStreetMap in the ISPRS International Journal of Geo-Information (an open-access journal hosted by MDPI).The paper describes the influence of corporate editors such as Apple, Microsoft, and Facebook on the development of OSM in the historical development of these activities. The investigation, which was carried out on the basis of 10 selected companies, found that corporate mapping focuses thematically on roads and raised questions about how OSM should deal with the growth in corporate edits.
  • The latest issue of the International Journal of Geographical Information Science has a number of papers about “Volunteered Geographical Information”, many based on analysing OpenStreetMap contributions. Hakaly et. al. provide an overview in their editorial.
  • Apparently, the OSM forum is having issues with right-to-left written scripts. The failure to support scripts used in large parts of the world collides with OSM’s mission to build and support local communities. (The forum link requires OSM login to view.)
  • A new UN report notes growing interest in crowdsourced maps and calls OpenStreetMap “foundational to almost all risk sciences”.
Events
  • State of the Map France announced the provisional programme for the 2019 conference, to be held in Montpellier in the middle of June. They encourage you to register.
  • Ticket sales for the State of the Map conference 2019 in Heidelberg, Germany, has just started. Early Bird discounts are available for a limited albeit undisclosed time.
Humanitarian OSM
  • Missing Maps report on their blog a recent mission by member organisation CartONG to Burkina Faso. Prior to on-the-ground mapping, informal settlements around Ouagadougou were mapped remotely in mapathons. The team from CartONG collaborated with a local group, Yaam Solidarité, to train surveyors and collect map data.
Maps
  • Campaigning has started for the municipal elections in Chelyabinsk, Russia. A website showing (automatic translation) the electoral districts and their candidates is based on OSM.
  • Steve Coast pointed to a First You Make the Maps titled story-map that explains how cartography has made global trade possible.
  • Mapbox announced that it now offers traffic data that can be used in conjunction with HERE, TomTom and OSM maps. The traffic data is collected by 45,000 Android and iOS apps and the daily total is 300 million miles driven globally.
  • gicycle used OSM data to show that a plan to ban betting shops from within 800 m of schools in Salzburg would amount to a complete ban.
  • The Russian portal “Current time” published an OSM-based interactive map (automatic translation), which shows the current formal status of the Russian language in all former Soviet republics.
switch2OSM
  • [1] Greenpeace switched its “Recycle map” in Russia from Google to OSM. Now the project is in the beta-testing phase.
Licences
  • Nuno Caldeira isn’t very happy with Facebook not attributing OSM and expresses this in a Tweet.
Software
  • Maps.Me has again started to make a weekly upload of maps for its navigator. However, the installation should be done manually.
  • Russian non-profit “Social technology greenhouse” created a plug-in for WordPress, which makes it possible to place an OSM map into the blog. They would be glad if anyone tested this plug-in and gave them feedback.
Programming
  • Pierre Béland has added preliminary versions of PostGIS Orthogonal Functions, for transforming building polygons, to the OQ_Analysis Github repo.
Releases
  • A new version of iD has been released. The new version v2.15.0 comes with a major improvement of iD’s validator, the ability to square unclosed lines and individual corners, straightening is now possible on sub-sections of lines and many more improvements, new features and fixes.
Did you know …
  • …the R242 road to Malin Head on the Inishowen Peninsula in County Donegal, Ireland was recently renamed to R2D2 in tribute to the robot from Star Wars. The area features in The Last Jedi (Star Wars Episode VIII) filmed in 2016. The road has not yet been updated on OSM as there was concern this was a hoax.
  • … how to tag a historic stone block? It might be a megalith: historic=archaeological_site and site_type=megalith.
Other “geo” things
  • Ed Freyfogle (OpenCageData) was interviewed about geocoding on the MapScaping podcast.
  • Mapillary opened a marketplace for street-level imagery and the manual validation of geospatial data extracted from images using Mapillary’s Machine Learning technology. You can buy or sell street-level imagery and request the validation of data. Validating machine learning results is rewarded with game points. Whether the data can be used for OSM or if it is a commercial-only product was not made clear.
  • Mapbox changed their pricing scheme to use a new calculation method. Details can be found on the Mapbox Blog. The old pricing can be viewed on the Internet Archive.

Can you escape from the traffic in a city? 1 | © Hans Hack map data © OpenStreetMap

Mapping Community
  • For several weeks now the desirable contributions in the OSM user blogs have sunk under a deluge of spam. There are people who are calling for countermeasures, such as forced moderation for all new user accounts. alexkemp, who has been involved with forum spam for some time, suspects that the current wave of spam is just the beginning.
  • OSM Foundation Japan had a meetup between board members and local mappers to build a better community. Many proposals for improvements were made holding mapping parties and the promotion of OSM.
  • Ilya Zverev in his blog “SHTOSM” ponders (automatic translation) why anyone in the 21st century would need paper maps.
Events
  • As Laura Mugeha has tweeted, SotM Africa, which will take place on 22-24 November 2019 in Grand-Bassam, Ivory Coast, needs more workshop proposals.
  • So far only one of talks for the State of the Map US has been submitted by a woman. The organisers are determined to change that, though the target of more than 50 percent of all talks to be submitted by women appears challenging.
Education
  • Heidelberg University’s GIScience Research Group has used the example of health-related amenities to explore the development of OSM data over time. The results provide deep insight into mapping patterns such as the saturation of an area with a given tag, spin-offs in the form of tag diversification such as amenity=hospital -> amenity=clinic and the erratically increasing usage of the tag as usually seen when a country gets into the scope of the humanitarian sector.
Maps
  • Can you escape from traffic in a city? Hans Hack has created a map for Berlin showing the places which are farthest away from a road.
  • The public Swiss geoportal, which has recently introduced an OSM-based vector tile test map with customisable map style, has updated its map with the Mapbox rendering engine. Jeff Konnen from Luxembourg announced that geoportail.lu will “copy” this. Gonza from Argentina reports in a tweet that mapa.ign.gob.ar has also integrated OSM into its base map.
  • Greenpeace has created a map of air quality in Russian cities. It uses OpenStreetMap as a basemap.
Open Data
  • …Almost a year ago Tolyatti city administration (Russia) made its official GIS-portal “EMGIS” open to everybody. The portal is now under the Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International licence. Moreover, the OSM community received permission (automatic translation) to use the portal.
Software
  • OSGeoLive 13.0 has reached Alpha status and the developers are looking for volunteer testers. OSGeoLive is a Linux Live distribution, which is equipped with current Open Source GIS programs.
  • Peermaps wants to become a distributed, offline-friendly alternative to commercial map providers such as Google Maps. It plans to use peer-to-peer network techniques to share the hosting of files. The project has received funding to build an initial prototype which will display a regularly updated OSM-based map.
  • Russian OSMers Alexander Pankratov and Alexander Istomin have developed a JOSM map style “Building_Levels_Labels” for highlighting objects without specified “floors” attributes. The map style has been translated into English.
Did you know …
  • … Pascal’s blog post #100? Pascal’s tools are an integral part of the OSM ecosystem.
  • … the Russian company NextGIS developed an interactive map showing the dynamics of the political borders of Russia and its predecessors. Also they share insights about how this map was created.
  • … how to tag shops offering vegan, halal, kosher or gluten-free products? The keys diet:vegan, diet:halal, diet:kosher, diet:gluten_free and several more can be added to mark them.
  • Long-serving OSMers may still remember how the Maxheight map started in 2012. In its current form, the map not only shows worldwide missing maxheight= tags, but also provides overlays for other truck-related tags. The documentation on the Wiki describes the various ways you can help improve the map.
Other “geo” things
  • In the Strike Tracker project, Amnesty International used satellite imagery and crowdsourcing to analyse air strikes on the Iraqi city of Raqqa. More than 3000 volunteers collected the data; an analysis website including an OSM map summarises the results.
  • Mapillary’s #CompleteTheMap is back. The challenge kicks off in June—read more in the Mapillary blog.
  • Microsoft follows Niantic, who has published the augmented reality games Ingress and Pokémon GO, and announced an AR version of Minecraft, called Minecraft Earth. The announcement had extensive press coverage, for instance in Wired and CNN. The game is expected to use Microsoft’s Azure Spatial Anchors , which is Azure’s cloud system combined with OpenStreetMap data, rather than GPS for positioning. It remains to be seen what impact the game will have on OSM.
  • Garmin launched a device with an OSM-based topo map pre-installed. The Garmin Overlander comes with a proprietary road navigation and topographic OSM map and costs €699. OSM as a map source is only mentioned in the German press release (automatic translation).
