Mapping

  • The Costa Rican community photomapped the trails in the natural forest reserve of Bosque del Niño in Poás volcano.
  • The Mexican OSM community proposes the use of the hashtag #CallesVioletas to visualize and map the public spaces. This is done by using an inclusive methodology that empowers citizens by generating participatory data from georeferenced photos.
  • User kreuzschnabel asks (automatic translation) in the German user forum how to tag scenery frames.
  • Christoph Hormann cleans up defective multi-polygons and data garbage in the Antarctica region. He wonders why there are so many nodes created with the iD editor.
  • In his draft proposal, user dieterdreist suggests that the key emergency be supplemented by the collection of “dry riser inlet”.
  • Ever wondered why OSM hasn’t adopted a review procedure yet? Read the discussion on responding to vandalism thread in the Talk mailing list. Proponents and opponents share their thoughts.
  • The proposal for drying rooms for sports equipment is under way and Thilo Haug asks for comments.
  • Yuri Astrakhan suggests some features for editors to improve the usage of tags.
  • Tod Fitch thinks that the direction=* tag is used for too many unrelated conventions. The mailing list Tagging discussed some of them.
  • Charlie Loyd from Mapbox, writes a blog about the high-resolution images that are made available in India and can be used for mapping.

Community

Imports

  • An import of trees in the West Midlands of England that has mostly ignored the import guidelines has sparked some difficult discussions – some highly respected members of the GB community spoke up against it.
  • There was a discussion about Facebook’s proposed import (based on automatically recognising streets) on the “import” mailing list. It also continues to be discussed on the Thai forum.

OpenStreetMap Foundation

  • The minutes of the board meeting held on 21 February 2017 were published in the wiki of the Foundation. There was a discussion about the transparency of the Data Working Group among other working groups, the necessary profit from SotM and furthermore, the status of the Corporate Membership was presented.

Events

  • Simon Poole invites to the Annual General Meeting of the Swiss OpenStreetMap Association followed by a Mapping Party. This takes place on Saturday, April 8th at the University of Fribourg.
  • The enrollments for SotM France from 2nd to 4th June in Avignon are open.

Humanitarian OSM

Maps

  • [1] The “Neue Westfälische” presents a new city map of Bielefeld. (de) This map is based on OSM, cadastral and other sources. It is to be further expanded.
  • Frikart.no offers Garmin Maps with different Norwegian map styles.

Open Data

  • Christian Quest reported that the RTE (the French electricity network operator) published all network data (overground 45 kV to 400 kV, Underground, etc.) and declared it as open data.

Licences

  • Update: There is now an official common statement by The OpenStreetMap Foundation and Creative Commons for the compatibility of the CC-BY 4.0 with OSM. If you want to use sources that are under the CC-BY 4.0, you must obtain a waiver from the data provider as to 1) DRM restrictions and 2) format of attribution. Here’s a link to a template waiver form, as well as a link to template waiver forms for CC BY 2.0 and 3.0 data sources.

Programming

  • Ilya Zverev proposed a pull request that allows OSM users to communicate their email address to external programs via OSM verification.
  • Michael Spreng tests a new routing frontend at the swiss server. He asks for feedback.
  • Frederik Ramm suggests in the Geofabrik blog, what to do if osm2pgsql crashed on your servers due to the huge collective relation uploaded in Brazil a few days ago. (Reported in our last issue)
  • Mapbox checks the instructions of the navigation software OSRM. They use a tool that translates ASCII art of an intersection to a valid OpenStreetMap extract, then pushes the data for that scenario through the entire engine to make sure it behaves correctly.
  • Rob H. Warren is looking for volunteers regularly fetching planet dumps of OpenHistoricalMap as a backup.
  • Naoliv will distribute gifts to anyone who writes a notification tool, that will notify when there is a change in street name in a particular area.

Überarbeitete Emergency-Map

Revised Emergency Map 1 | © OpenStreetMap Contributors [CC-BY-SA 2.0]

Mapping

  • User BushmanK writes about the quality of foreign names submitted under the name:<language_code>=* tag. An in-depth analysis is presented and suggestions on how to mitigate the issue.
  • The Costa Rican community organises a tour (Feb & March event) to map national parks and volcanoes. This month’s destination was Bosque del Niño.
  • Jochen Topf reports that the multi-polygon fixing effort is going well and provides an issue thread to track the evolution.
  • A discussion started on the French mailing list about tagging standards for river fishing categories. Concerns were raised about such information only being relevant with regard to local nomenclatures.
  • User Muzirian proposes the tag amenity=courier to map courier services. However, it received some criticism.
  • The Tagging mailing list is looking for a neutral name for “Segways and the like”.
  • On the Tagging mailing list, Warin asks for ideas to map Drying_room or Drying_area.
  • Dave Swarthout is looking for a tag for cannabis processing plants.
  • Yuri Astrakhan published a proposal to distinguish between “There is a Wikipedia page about this object” vs “This object is mentioned in a Wikipedia page”. His suggestion was seen rather critically on the OSM Wiki.
  • Joshua Houston suggests on the Talk-US mailing list to replace the tag man_made to human_made, as a step to make OSM more inclusive. The OSM Latam community had a similar discussion on this issue.
  • Martijn van Exel posts the latest news from MapRoulette.

Community

  • After Senegal, Burkina Faso and Benin, it is the turn of Togo to start its phase 01 of the project School of Free Geomatics. (fr)
  • For some time now, there have been rumours that Niantic is using OpenStreetMap data to influence Pokemon Go. There’s more discussion about it here, and a recent OSM diary entry has linked to an article amusingly titled ‘How To Create Your Own Nest In Pokemon GO With A Free Tool Called “Open Street Map”’ (and as you’d expect, every other post there, reads like Buzzfeed Bingo too). But this could mean that there are a few people trying to game OpenStreetMap to make things appear in Pokemon Go. Here are a few things that you can do about such vandalism.
  • Sven Geggus tweets that the German tile server operated by FOSSGIS e.V. is now HTTPS capable.

Events

  • The Swiss OpenStreetMap Association’s Annual General Meeting will take place in Fribourg, Switzerland on April 8th. A mapping party will follow.
  • Gregory calls again to submit lectures for the State of the Map in Japan, since not enough papers have been submitted so far. Rob also refers to the deadlines for proposals and the scholarship program.

Humanitarian OSM

  • Marek Kleciak reports in the German forum that new satellite images from Nepal are available. They allow to map previously untapped areas. (de)
  • The HOT Team Indonesia organized a mapping event called WomenMap. They introduced women to ICT and digital mapping skills. It was pioneered by HOT as it moves towards promoting inclusion for vulnerable, disenfranchised groups (women, persons with disabilities, youth and marginalized communities) and thus help to narrow the digital divide. The initiative is supported by the Australian Government, Disaster Management Innovation and UN Women.

Maps

  • Walter aka wambacher presents the completely revised version of the Emergency Map.
  • Mapzen now offers a map style for cycling. European readers have to answer the question themselves if this map design can compete with the long-standing experience and work of all those cycling mappers/developers in Europe. 😉

switch2OSM

  • When you do a geo search on the meta search engine Startpage, you will directly see an OpenStreetMap map in the results.

Open Data

  • Mapbox published new satellite imagery for Vancouver and Toronto.
  • The summary of an interview with Antonio F. Rodríguez Pascual provides (es) 10 good reasons why the public administration (in Spain) should release data under an open license. (automatic translation)

Software

  • Andrés summarizes all important sources for learning about and using the Overpass API.
  • The motorcycle route planner “Kurviger”, which prefers beautiful winding routes with elevation changes, is now available worldwide.
  • Harry Wood created a tool to convert OpenStreetMap notes into KML and to use them in MAPS.ME.
  • On talk-fr, Florian Lainez announces the launch of Bus Contributor, a new Android app to ease public transport related contributions in OSM. Provided by Jawg Maps, the app is based on OSM Contributor.

Programming

  • A “monster relation” of an undiscussed import in Brazil with more than 32,767 members was too big for osm2pgsql, which probably caused problems on many servers.
  • In the second part of his blog series, Roland explained how to deal with numbers in the Overpass API.
