The still incomplete map “The Saints of Europe” 1 | data © openstreetMap contributors

Mapping
  • Martijn Van Exel invited us, on Twitter, to view the MapRoulette presentation he gave at at SotM US.
  • Dan Stowell tweeted that OSM-UK’s quarterly project has reached 100,000 solar panels. In his blog he summarises where both rooftop solar panels and larger solar farms have been mapped in the UK.
  • Joseph Eisenberg has started a new proposal for aerodrome= to allow a better classification of airports. With the possible values international, commercial, general_aviation, private and airstrip he plans to replace aeroway=airstrip and aerodrome:type=*.
  • Antoine Jaury suggests reusable_packaging:offer= and reusable_packaging:accept= for shops accepting or proposing customer-owned reusable containers to reduce packaging waste. He asks for comments on his proposal.
  • Francesco Ansanelli proposes highway=tourist_bus_stop for a bus stop which is reserved for tourist buses and drafted a proposal.
  • Simon Poole reported (automatic translation) that after consultation with the AGIS, he has included their aerial photographs from March 2019 in the SOSM Mapproxy configuration.
  • hüggelzwerg recommends the addition of public_transport=stop_area_group into the public transport tagging scheme PTv2 and summarises (automatic translation) the reasons and advantages in his user diary. A public_transport=stop_area_group relation would include a number of public_transport=stop_area members and would link them together at large public transport hubs.
  • Microsoft’s dataset with approximatley 125 million building footprints in the US is currently available in the RapiD editor as an experimental feature. If you zoom into the USA you can see the suggested buildings and roads.
    More background is available at the website for RapiD and the GitHub page for the building footprint dataset.
  • Voting for Joseph Eisenberg’s proposal for campsite properties is underway and ends on 23 September 2019.
  • Roland Olbricht is moderating a session at State of the Map on tagging governance. On the OSM-talk mailing list he asked for people’s views and feedback about which issues are important.
Community
  • On Talk-AT there was a discussion (automatic translation) about a Golem article that discussed how Lyft automatically tries to detect errors in OSM via algorithms (which we covered last week). However, the article was not completely clear, because there is only automatic recognition of the errors, rather than editing them. For corrections, MapRoulette challenges are used.
  • Sergey Golubev is trying (automatic translation) to find out in which cities of Russia the population is growing and in which it is not.
  • Valery Trubin continues a series of interviews with Russian mappers. This time he talked to two newcomers (Ivan, aka BANO.notIT, and Victor Vyalichkin), who came to OSM earlier this year. Ilya Zverev draws attention (automatic translation) to the unexpected observations of these users.
OpenStreetMap Foundation
  • Preliminary results of the OSM community survey have been released. Five of the OSMF Board members reflect on their views of the results in the OSMF Blog post.
Events
  • Betaslb reported (automatic translation) on her user’s diary about a news item published by the Azorean local newspaper Diário Insular that the EuYoutH_OSM is in Heidelberg, Germany in a week to train in OSM and to attend SotM 2019.
  • Videos of presentations at the 2019 State of the Map US are now available on the programme page of their website.
Humanitarian OSM Maps
  • The still incomplete map The Saints of Europe shows towns and cities of Europe that have been named after saints.
Licences
  • There seem to be issues with CC-BY licensed data sources. OSM insists in having a waiver or explicit permission for using such licensed data. Graeme Fitzpatrick asked whether he can use Australian QTopo maps and learnt that while OSM requires permission, the data owner, the Queensland Department of Natural Resources, Mines and Energy, thinks CC-BY is sufficient for using the data in OSM – a situation that does not seem to be unique. Posts from Andrew Harvey and Simon Poole from OSM’s License Working Group provide some more background on this topic.
  • Jez Nicholson updated the Copyright Infringement section on the United Kingdom Tagging Guidelines and asks others for their input as the Ordnance Survey dominates the numbers of mentions.
Software
  • Poorly laid out paths are a typical problem in the landscaping of public spaces. As a result, unplanned paths appear on lawns and flowerbeds. The service Ant road planner will help to avoid this. It is based on OSM data.
Programming
  • The Russian public organisation Greenhouse of social technologies, which recently released a plugin for WordPress shMapper (we wrote about it in issue 462), published (automatic translation) an article on Habr about how they developed this application. They also made a short video showing how to use this plugin.
  • There is another way (automatic translation) to bring together Strava Global Heatmap and OpenStreetMap. However, as Simon Poole reminds us: we do not currently have permission to use Strava data for OSM.
  • The developer of the service “Sight Safari“, an app which can build interesting sightseeing routes in unfamiliar cities, published (automatic translation) an article on Habr, where they explained how they developed this application.
Releases
  • Tobias Zwick released StreetComplete v14.0. Among other enhancements and new quest types, the real highlight is that it now supports the splitting of ways.
Did you know … OSM in the media
  • Russian news agency TASS started a special project Mercator: It’s a flat, flat world!, which tells how these well-known maps were created.
Other “geo” things
  • Hollewegs are “roads or tracks that are significantly lower than the land on either side”. Dirk Kloosterboer used OpenStreetMap and elevation data, to find that streets named holloway may be found in hilly areas, but not very often in high mountains.
  • One billion smartphone owners can now use the European satellite navigation system, Galileo, the operator announced in a press release. The system, which suffered a complete one week failure in July 2019, is expected to be fully operational this year and completed, with 24 operational and 6 active spare satellites, in 2021 with the start of the new Ariane 6 rocket, which might cause another delay as the first Ariane 6 test flight is scheduled for 2020.
  • John Wyatt Greenlee created a map to answer the question of where people paid their rent in eels in England, during the 10th to 17th centuries, as part of the English Eel-Rents project.
  • The INTERGEO, a trade fair and conference for geodesy, geoinformation and land management, will take place 17 to 19 September in Stuttgart, Germany for the 25th time. More information about the event can be found in the INTERGEO report 2019.
  • Adam Van Etten described how In-Q-Tel are extracting roads topology from satellite imagery using computer vision.
  • The tourist information office of the city of Oldenburg wants to switch (automatic translation) from Google Maps to an “own database” as a result of Google’s step to charge the organisation for its services from July 2018.
  • An article on citylab.com summarises the most important information about Trump’s Dorian map. It includes an interview with Mark Monmonier, author of How to Lie With Maps (already published in its third edition).
  • The worldwide Friday for Future movement, triggered by the strike of 16-year-old activist Greta Thunberg, was supported by many people around the world on 20 September in the form of peaceful demonstrations. In Germany alone, over 1.4 million people gathered in many cities to demonstrate for action on climate change. An interactive map of the planned demonstrations in Germany, based on OSM, was produced a few days ago.

Development Seed announced the launch of mapping.team, a tool to coordinate mapping and build communities. 1 | © kamicut, Development Seed

About us
  • In our last issue we reported on the vacancies on the OSMF Board of Directors. A late update is that four posts will be available for election, not three as we reported. Heather Leson is retiring from the board before the end of her term.
Mapping
  • OpenStreetMap Guinea announces in a tweet the collection of data on illegal dumping points in the Commune of Ratoma in Conakry, which are visualised on a thematic uMap map.
  • Ruben suggests extending opening_hours by an additional value for amenities which require an appointment.
  • Jeremiah Rose suggests footway=indoor for marking indoor routes within a building mapped with Simple Indoor Tagging but has not so far provided the distinction to the existing highway=corridor.
  • Andrew, from Apple’s Maps team, has uploaded potential road and routing related issues in Angola, Egypt, Kenya, Rwanda, South Africa, Tunisia and Uganda to MapRoulette.
  • SK53 tried to unify the tagging for showgrounds and posted the various inconsistent approaches he found in the UK.
  • A German-specific discussion concerns a dispute as to how many lanes a road has if there are no markings. A article in the Zeit Online provides (automatic translation) arguments for mappers who think the number of lanes is determined by the physical width.
  • Lyft, an on-demand transportation company based in San Francisco, USA, reports about its efforts to detect, fix and report map errors in OSM.
  • Miami University students and geographic information systems (GIS) professionals have started a “Bahamas Mapathon” to help the Bahamas after the devastating Hurricane Dorian.
Community
  • Ireland’s OSM community has submitted an application to become a local OSMF chapter for mappers in both parts of the Irish Island, the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland. All, except one, welcome the idea of a local chapter for mappers in the two countries.
Imports
  • Brian M. Sperlongano would like to import the boundaries of the Census-designated places (CDP) in Hawaii. However, there are uncertainties about tagging, as CDPs do not meet the criteria for boundary=administrative.
  • At SotM US 2019, Facebook demonstrated their computer vision software to detect buildings suitable for import into OSM with RapiD.
OpenStreetMap Foundation
  • Nuno Caldeira has noticed a new button on Facebook maps that can be used to report map errors. Unfortunately the error report process does not credit OSM, instead referring to “Facebook maps”. Nuno had already reported the incorrect identification to Facebook a year ago and three months ago asked the OSM Foundation to persuade Facebook to attribute it correctly.
  • OSMF’s trademark policy is still a current topic on the mailing list and not everyone agrees with the current procedures.
  • With the Annual General Meeting of the OpenStreetMap Foundation impending, Michael Reichert provides a reminder (automatic translation) about how to renew one’s membership, with some hints to make life easier for the Membership Working Group. He also calls on others to join the Foundation.
Events
  • This year’s State of the Map conference was sold out on 6 September 2019. If you missed out you’ll be able to livestream or watch the recordings, see the programme for details.
  • The Einfachbahn (automatic translation) initiative organised (automatic translation) a mapping party in Frankfurt am Main on 12 September. Two groups practised the acquisition of railway-related geodata in Frankfurt-Höchst and Frankfurt-Rödelheim stations and subsequently edited with JOSM. In addition to mapping, there was a lively exchange of information on railway geodata.
  • FOSS4G SotM Oceania is looking for a host for next year’s event.
  • The next French-German cross-border OSM community meetup will take place (automatic translation) on 28 September 2019 in Strasbourg.
  • The SigInfoLibre blog talks about (automatic translation) the sub-regional workshop for leaders of OpenStreetMap communities in French-speaking Africa. The workshop is being held at the University of Lomé in Togo with the support of the Organisation Internationale de la Francophonie. On the menu: participants talk about OpenStreetMap Governance, project engineering, communication techniques, and free digital mapping techniques.
  • You often hear of the University Rapperswill, Switzerland, in the context of innovative OSM technologies and applications. So it makes perfect sense that Rapperswill has applied to host the next State of the Map conference from 19 to 21 June 2020.
  • The FOSSGIS 2020 (automatic translation) conference, the annual meeting for open source geo-software and OpenStreetMap in Germany, will take place from 11 to 14 March in Freiburg. As usual, the last day is always a Saturday and dedicated to OSM.
  • Missing Maps is organising another mapathon at the Médecins Sans Frontières offices in Brussels. The Save the World – Map it titled event will take place on 24 September 2019.
  • Ilya Zverev reports from SotM-US – Wednesday (automatic translation) – Thursday (automatic translation) – Friday (automatic translation).
Education
  • CartONG, a French NGO specialising in mapping and related services for humanitarian and development organisations, is offering a position for a data specialist based in Chambéry (France).
switch2OSM
  • Severin Kann reported, via Twitter, that in Krakow OpenStreetMap is used on trams for real-time position display.
Software
  • [1] Development Seed announced the launch of mapping.team, a tool to coordinate mapping and build communities. The diary entry provides a fairly comprehensive overview and recommends that you test the beta version, create an own instance, or contribute code to the GitHub hosted project.
  • Simon Poole has published a feature preview of the upcoming versions of the Vespucci editor for Android devices. The first beta of Vespucci 14 is expected to be released in September.
Releases
  • OsmAnd announced the release of version 3.0 of their iOS app. The new version adds a quick action feature to access various map actions from the home screen, the ability to download a missing region map directly from the context menu, and added hints for tags and values to the advanced OpenStreetMap editing screen.
Did you know …
  • … the OSM-Science mailing list? A place to discuss research ideas, to develop surveys, and to communicate with science-oriented OpenStreetMap community members.
  • … there are at least two kinds of gas-driven vehicles? Some run with liquefied petroleum gas (fuel:lpg), some use compressed natural gas (fuel:cng). Don’t get them mixed up when tagging fuel service stations, as the two are incompatible with each other!
OSM in the media
  • LinuxInsider reports on the new OSGeoLive release. OSGeoLive is a Linux distribution that specialises in geospatial applications.
Other “geo” things
  • OpenMaptiler blogs on the highlights from FOSS4G 2019 in Bucharest.
  • Elijah Zarlin from Mapbox presents 15 projects that have been created recently with Mapbox tools.
  • The Pudding have produced a People Map of the US, where city names are replaced by their most Wikipedia’ed resident. There is also a UK for those who prefer to see the other side of the Atlantic.
  • Google Maps now also includes ridesharing offers “for the first and last mile” in its public transport routing in order to save even more footsteps.
  • The North American Datum of 1983 is the Everest of the classical survey art, completed just before the satellite geodesy revolution swept all aside. Tim Burch discusses the four plate-fixed terrestrial reference frames that will replace the venerable NAD83 in 2022. A combination of correcting the 2m offset in NAD83 from the geocentre and dropping the US survey foot and adopting the international foot, will see some points apparently move by up to 4m.
  • It’s nothing new that Pokémon GO players like to cause controversy in the OSM community. The Silph Road shows that some OSM tags prevent Pokémon from spawning in certain areas of the game. Of course, this is not due to OSM itself, but to the processing of the data by Niantic.

Mapping
  • Stolpersteine (literally “stumbling blocks”) are small brass-plated cubes laid, around Europe, in front of the last-known residences or workplaces of those who were driven out or murdered by the Nazis. Reclus asked (automatic translation) if the 8700 Stolpersteine with a Wikidata entry are linked to OpenStreetMap.
  • Hauke ​​Stieler has made (automatic translation) a map of objects tagged shop=yes in Germany. Rendering of shop=yes was dropped in OpenStreetMap Carto v4.22.0.
  • amilopowers’s proposal to tag the possibility of withdraw cash in a shop or amenity can now be voted on.
  • Klumbumbus proposes traffic_calming=dynamic_bump for the new type of dynamic traffic calming, whose impact depends on the driver’s speed, and asks for your opinion.
  • Vadim Shlyakhov is proposing leisure=sunbathing to mark outdoor locations where people can sunbathe.
Community
  • The OSM Operations Team announced that anonymous users will shortly be no longer able to comment on notes. The reasons and more background information can be found in a GitHub issue, which was opened 2 years ago.
  • Samuel Darkwah Manu, founder of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology YouthMappers and a member of the OSM Ghana community, shares his experience participating in the Open Cities Accra project.
  • OpenStreetMap encourages all mappers to vote for the OpenStreetMap Awards 2019. Voting ends on 18 September so vote now.
OpenStreetMap Foundation
  • For the upcoming 2019 OSMF Board Elections Kate Chapman announced that Mikel Maron will be up for re-election and Frederik Ramm, as well as Kate Chapman, will be stepping down and not be re-running.
Events
  • The State of the Map is looming. In less than 2 weeks the annual OSM event, with many interesting events, will start in Heidelberg, Germany. The State of the Map will take place from 21st to 23rd September and follows directly after the HOT Summit at the same place.
  • Lukas and Fabian, from HeiGIT, presented a 90 minute lab about analysing OpenStreetMap data history with the ohsome platform at the FOSS4G 2019 conference in Bucharest. The teaching material and code has been made available as linked snippets in the GIScience HD Gitlab.
Humanitarian OSM
  • HOT reports about the work on setting up an effective solid waste collection system with Open Source Tools in Dar es Salaam.
Maps
  • [1] The tourism organisation of the Durmitor National Park in Žabljak, Montenegro, recommends the use of OSM on their mountain bike maps and also on their homepage with the wording “For successful orientation in the region of Durmitor and Sinjajevina, we recommend that you use OpenStreetMap and Open Cycle Maps which are regularly updated and new information is added every day”.
Open Data
  • The German federal state Saxony has released (automatic translation) aerial images, digital topographic maps, elevation and landscape models, and cadastre data to the public. Unfortunately the new data is licensed with a CC-BY-like licence and, hence, not compatible with our requirements. However, orthophotos and a public map with roads, road names, building footprints and house numbers were already and will continue to be available to OSM mappers.
  • The CCC is hosting a video, from the Free and Open Source Software for Geospatial (FOSS4G) event in Bucharest, about how to use OSM and Wikidata together with data science tools and Python.
Programming
  • tchaddad explains, in his user diary, how Wikidata queries using SPARQL and the API work, and how Wikidata could be used to improve Nominatim.
Releases
  • Paul Norman informed us about an update to Carto, OSM’s main map style. The minor improvements include bug fixes, performance and code cleanup, as well as some optical changes such as retail colour fill on malls, and the rendering of historic=citywalls the same as barrier=city_wall.
  • Sarah Hoffmann announced a new release of osm2pgsql. The new version (1.0.0) drops support for old-style multipolygons and has received major functionality improvements.
Did you know …
  • … Matt Mikus answered the question of whether Minnesota has more shoreline than California, Hawaii and Florida, combined. With the help of OSM data he found that the answer is yes if you include rivers and streams in your calculation.
  • … about the ski resort CopenHill in the Danish capital Copenhagen? It was built, as a globally unique project, on the green roof of a waste incineration plant to give Danes an opportunity to spend their ski holidays in their own country. In OSM it looks like this.
OSM in the media
  • The Austrian newspaper Der Standard wrote an article about China’s practice of distorting its maps. While Russia ended its efforts to falsify roads, rivers and even city quarters at the end of the 80s, in light of upcoming satellite imagery based maps, China continues its own efforts for unknown reasons. A map law, with 68 paragraphs, requires that only approved maps are allowed to be published, with “correct” borders of course. Only 14 Chinese companies have a licence to produce and publish maps. The distortion is assumed to range between 50 and 700 metres and can be seen when comparing a satellite image on Google maps with the road map layer.

  • On Day 3 of Pista ng Mapa, Leigh deployed her DJI Phantom 4 to survey the event venue and its surrounding community. Leigh uploaded all of the drone-derived data into OpenAerialMap, including the elevation models. Maning Sambale demonstrates how to use QGIS to extract the heights from the derived DSM/DTM and to use them for visualising building polygons from OpenSteetMap.
  • The Africa Geospatial Data and Internet Conference 2019 will be held in Accra, Ghana from 22nd to 24th October. The conference aims to bring people together in discussions on public policy issues relating to geospatial and open data, ICTs and the Internet in Africa.
  • For more than 30 years WGS84 has acted as a “pivot” datum through which one datum can be transformed into another. Michael Giudici explains how, in a world that demands sub-metre accuracy, the WGS84 pivot has outlived its usefulness. The “GDAL Coordinate System Barn Raising” is currently working on improving GDAL, PROJ, and libgeotiff so they can handle time-dependent coordinate reference systems and accurately transform between datums.
  • Katja Seidel investigated (automatic translation) alternatives to GPSies to use after it is merged into AllTrails.

OSM-UK’s current quarterly project: mapping solar panels 1 | data © OpenstreetMap contributors

Mapping
  • Vespucci now allows the creation of custom presets on-the-fly. Simon Poole tweets a short demonstration showing how it can be done.
  • Thejesh GN put out a call for volunteers to map CCTV cameras in West and South Bangalore.
  • Joseph Eisenberg is asking for comments on the campsite properties proposal. The proposal aims to allow adding more information about camping areas.
  • SK53 provided an update on OSM-UK’s current quarterly project: mapping solar panels. As of 23rd August around 67,500 solar installations had been mapped. It is expected that over 10% of rooftop installations and substantially more than half of solar farms will be in OSM at the end of the quarter.
  • Apple is going to start paid/directed editing in Malaysia, and is looking for community feedback.
  • EmBH suggested (automatic translation) that isced:level could be automatically added to schools in Germany. They suggested a Python script could add levels, based on the names of the features. A discussion of the merits and the foreseen difficulties of the proposal followed.
  • AkuAnakTimur, a local active mapper in Malaysia, has collected GPS traces and is attempting to help GlobalLogic/Grab paid mappers with their common mistakes of tagging and geometry.
  • Lübeck suggests to look for hydrogen filling stations in your local area as he noticed missing stations when compared with h2.live.
Community OpenStreetMap Foundation
  • OpenStreetMap Ireland, OpenStreetMap Česká, and OSGeo Oceania have applied to become local chapters of the OpenStreetMap Foundation.
  • The OSMF Board released the minutes of their face-to-face meeting, which was held on 18 and 19 May in Brussels.
Events Humanitarian OSM
  • HOT has been experimenting with how machine learning could help them provide a better mapping experience and produce more accurate and effective maps for people responding to crises. HOT is hoping that, by using AI to estimate the size and difficulty of a mapping task, they can split the workload into quadrants that are of equal effort to complete.
Maps
  • citylab.com features an article about the Thomas Guide, a street map of Los Angeles with 3000 spiral-bound pages that was required to navigate before the era of electronic aids.
  • After a nostalgic article by Lora Bliss, Ilya Zverev remembered (automatic translation) his box of printed maps, and wondered, why we don’t spend as much time map-gazing nowadays. He outlined issues with mobile guidance and popular web maps, and found that besides satellite imagery, OpenStreetMap is the only map suited for a thorough in-depth exploring.
switch2OSM
  • The German Environment Agency (Umweltbundesamt) has produced an online service that shows the air quality across Germany, displayed on an OpenStreetMap base map. The same data can be tracked, in real-time, in a new smartphone app (automatic translation).
Open Data
  • Guido Gehrt interviewed (automatic translation) Professor Paul Becker, the recently appointed president of the German Federal Agency for Cartography and Geodesy . The interview covers why the Professor chose to take up the role and what his goals for new position. Of interest was his comments about how they should make more use of OpenStreetMap data, given that it is produced quickly in large quantities by highly motivated mappers. The Professor’s view is that OpenStreetMap is a data treasure that cannot remain untapped.
  • With the Geological Data Act, the German Federal Ministry of Economics and Energy has a legislative project (automatic translation) in the pipeline with which geological data will have to be made available to the public by the state geological offices on a far larger scale than hitherto. The law says nothing about licences and costs for citizens.
Software
  • Christoph Hanser announced that the Trufi App is now Open Source. The app, developed by the Trufi Association, provides public transport information in Cochabamba, Bolivia. Please spread the info so that cities in emergent countries can make use of this public transport app.
Programming
  • gravitystorm opened a pull request on GitHub as he’d like OSM to support multiple API versions, so that API 0.7 can be deployed while still using API 0.6. The API 0.7 is something that has been discussed since 2009 and the wishlist for a new version is very long.
  • Is OpenStreetCam closed source now? Apparently not, summer holidays and a small team make it hard to keep the GitHub part up to date.
  • The University of Washington and yes! magazine report about a new OSM-based map and routing app for pedestrians in Seattle. It is intended to help walkers to avoid hills, construction, and barriers to accessibility. The team is also working on creating a set of standards and toolkits that can improve the mapping of detailed, real-world conditions on pedestrian pathways and intersections. Examples include: difficult sidewalk widths, problematic surfaces. or the existence of ramps, handrails and lighting.
Releases
  • JOSM has reached version 15322 i.e. release 19.08. The most obvious change is the new logo. The new version allows the addition of changeset tags via remote control, improves the display with new MapCSS and Mappaint functions and -as usually- includes many many more enhancements.
  • Version 2.15.5 of iD has been released. A list of the improvements can be found in the GitHub comments.
  • beaconeer publishing has released a major update of its free POI finder iOS app AnyFinder. The app now caches collections of POIs locally which greatly speeds up the user experience when selecting the kind of POI to search for. OSM tags are now updated dynamically so the company can add support for new tags without having to release a new version of the app. AnyFinder 2.0 currently finds 88 different kinds of POIs and supports 63 OSM tags and 198 dedicated tag values.
  • You want to know which software is available for OSM? Here is the contact point with the current versions.
Did you know …
  • … how to tag the times a restaurant serves food? If they are different to the regular opening_hours, these can be tagged as opening_hours:kitchen.
  • … that there is an atlas of German road accidents? Not all states report the location of road accidents, hence the seemingly perfect driving records of, for example, Düsseldorfers.
OSM in the media
  • Andreas Baum and the rest of the team at the Berliner Taggespiegel have taken a deep dive (automatic translation) into the recently released accident data for Berlin. Along with extensive statistical analysis you can view every single site of an accident on an OpenStreetMap base map.
Other “geo” things
  • The United States is a large and varied country. Inzitarie has attempted the impossible: to produce a map of the most distinctive “cultural regions” of the USA.
  • The Austrian National Library is using crowdsourcing to categorise, tag and geolocate 5,000 digitized historical aerial photographs from the 1930s.
  • Do you know the expression “All roads lead to Rome!”? The website Move_Lab has developed the project Roads To Rome which proves that this is true. (we reported 282, 284, 285, 415) All roads to Rome, and all other routes calculated during the course of this project have been navigated by the GraphHopper. The routing was based on OpenStreetMap data.

Shades of Green – OpenStreetMap Overlays on Satellite images 1 | © CC-BY-SA 2019 Public Lab contributor MaggPi – data © OpenstreetMap contributors

Mapping
  • Kevin Kenny has been working on a proposal for protection_class=* which is intended to replace protect_class=*. His aim is to increase readability and usefulness of the tag values used with the key: specifically replacing opaque numeric codes for classes with more memorable mnemonics.
  • MaggPi shows how to process satellite imagery in a Jupyter notebook environment. Using OpenStreetMap and Planet satellite data, park areas in Nottingham (England) are identified and compared.
  • Are you looking for something to map? Here are some interesting challenges posted in MapRoulette:
  • In his 15th blog post in the series “Improving OSM – why don’t we?”, Marc Zoutendijk writes about the use of landuse=village_green. This tag is not used as he thinks it should be and appears to have different regional meanings.
  • Nvk updated us on his project to add basic support for a point-of-view feature for disputed borders in OpenStreetMap. Frodrigo also reported on his experiments in displaying disputed and claimed OpenStreetMap boundaries.
  • A road which has two names, one for each side, caused (automatic translation) some discussion in the forum about the possible ways to tag it in OSM. Apparently it is not that uncommon. A GitHub issue was created 4 years ago to support the 4235 highways currently tagged with name:left/right.
  • Rooftop solar panels are being mapped as the UK’s Quarterly Project. This will help improve forecasting for the electricity grid and reduce the need for non-renewable generators to remain on standby. A video shows how to map them, and 25,000 have already been added!
  • The mapping company lvl5 has been acquired and is “moving on to new adventures”, but all of the street-level imagery they paid to collect is currently being uploaded to Mapillary and will soon be available for editing OSM.
Community
  • Vincent Privat, one of the JOSM core developers, is unhappy about one of the nominations for this year’s Core Systems Award.
  • 10 years after the start of Map Kibera by Erica Hagen and Mikel Maron, Mikel wrote a blog post with his reflections on the famous event.
  • Frederik Ramm has suggested prioritising OSM’s own communication channels over other, externally controlled, ones in the iD user interface. The same issue was also raised by Joost Schouppe in the OSM Community Index project.
OpenStreetMap Foundation
  • The Licensing Working Group has made the minutes for the meetings on 11 July 2019 and 8 August 2019 available. Amongst other topics the Attribution Guidelines and Brexit were discussed.
  • OSMF’s local UK chapter, OpenStreetMap UK CIC Ltd, has submitted their annual and financial reports for the fiscal year ending 31 March 2019 to the OSMF.
  • The FOSSGIS eV board minutes from the 7 May (automatic translation) and 13 August (automatic translation) meetings have been published.
Events
  • Insight Centre at University College Galway are hosting an OpenStreetMap event on Saturday 31 August. The meeting is held in collaboration with the Irish OSM local chapter.
  • Heidelberg University’s GIScience Research Group invites you to a free workshop on open-source routing with time-dependent restrictions on the Friday before the State of the Map, 20 September 2019.
  • Are you going to the State of the Map 2019? If you are, then Christoph Hormann has perused the programme and come up with a list of recommended talks to attend. As a bonus, Christoph also analysed the backgrounds of the presenters and, on the basis of where the OSMF Scholarships were awarded, forecasts that SotM 2020 will be held in the Philippines.
Humanitarian OSM
  • Overpass Turbo is brilliant at querying and viewing OpenStreetMap data, however it can be slightly perplexing for users with little knowledge of OpenStreetMap; this is why HOT has built the Export Tool. The Export Tool allows users to define an area of interest, select map features and quickly export in a GIS-friendly file format to start to analyse. A user does not have to know how tags are set up in OpenStreetMap for map features and can simply select from a list of options to start exporting the data.
  • Melanie Chabot, a GIS Coordinator at the Canadian Red Cross, wrote an article on how they brought Missing Maps to Canada in order to improve community resilience and disaster preparedness in Indigenous communities.
Maps
  • Yes, the slippy map tiles on the Fraunhofer server, with place names shown in English, are great. No, you can’t use them in your project without asking first.
  • The Babykarte, a map dedicated to display baby and toddler related stuff, can speak French now. The new update now includes a filter for playground equipment and other new features.
Open Data
  • Rob Kitchin is pleased with his initial attempts to print a 3D map of Dublin.
Programming
  • Nikolay Petrov noticed (automatic translation) that the Russian website “Domofond” (estate rent and sale) uses OSM data. Surprisingly, it uses Yandex as a basemap and overlays OSM data upon it.
  • Russian mapper Zkir upgraded (automatic translation) his validator of 3D models for churches and some historical buildings. Now 3D models are shown right on the web page in the validator. They can look like this or like this.
Releases
  • Trufi, a mobile app for public transportation in Cochabamba, Bolivia, has released an iOS version.
Did you know …
  • … you can watch ships sailing in real-time on Vessel Finder? This site uses data from the automatic identification system and displays it on an OpenStreetMap based map.
  • … there is a difference between the tags change (to tag if traffic is permitted to leave a lane) and overtaking (to tag if overtaking is permitted)? Depending on legislation these two are not identical – overtaking can be allowed even with a solid lane divider so long as you don’t need to cross the line. Obviously this only works with broad lanes and narrow vehicles.
  • … about the nice and simple website Nebo.live which shows the air quality in Krasnoyarsk (Russia)?
  • … about the map of forbidden zones for flights on quadrocopters?
  • … how to connect online maps to the navigator in your smartphone? (part 1 (automatic translation), 2 (automatic translation), 3 (automatic translation))
OSM in the media
  • It’s not often that an OpenStreetMap edit can make it into a news story, but this is what happened recently in Waldshut, Germany. The Albtalstraße has been closed since 2015, due to rock falls, and its disappearance from OpenStreetMap was seen (automatic translation) as proof that it would not be reopened to traffic.
Other “geo” things
  • The website theverge.com has echoed reports from Chinese newspapers according to which Huawei is working on an alternative to Google Maps. The “Map Kit” is expected to be released in October.
  • Radio Garden is a geographical interface that lets you find and listen to live streaming radio stations from around the world. Radio Garden was originally commissioned in 2016 by the Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision in the context of an exhibition for the international research project Transnational Radio Encounters. It is now being developed into a company by one of the original creators.
  • Transport for London only launched “the world’s-largest database of cycling infrastructure” this month, but startups are already using the open data to improve their journey planning services. Beeline is now developing a proprietary routing tool built on OpenStreetMap for London.
  • Yanko Design creates and sells luminous maps, which shows what your favourite city would look like from above at night. The luminous maps are based on OSM data.
