ШТОСМ: Одни автопортреты

Недавно картинкой недели в вики выбрали скриншот коллекции OSMvis, где собраны визуализации данных OpenStreetMap и нашей вики. Все их создал Франц-Бенджамин Мокник, постдок на той же кафедре гейдельбергского университета, откуда вышли MapSurfer и OpenRouteService.

Этот сайт напомнил мне про See, also: тоже коллекцию визуализаций, но по данным википедии. Как и полагается более старому и более популярному проекту, в этой коллекции на порядок больше ссылок, но и авторы разные. Если посмотреть на темы работ в обеих коллекциях, налицо одно важное отличие.

Предметом визуализаций по OpenStreetMap почти всегда является OSM. А то и не почти. Распределение тегов, распределение правок, плотность данных, белые пятна, реки, «как мы хорошо помапили Африку». Все популярные в сообществе визуализации — а это и ResultMaps Паскаля, и видеоистории правок, и ITO Map, — сделаны только для осмеров. В See, also часто визуализируют не саму википедию, а содержание статей. Например, популярность музыкальных жанров в разные годы или распределение некрологов по полам.

Встречаются красивые картинки на основе OSM: Sorted Cities, Interchange Choreography, Roads to Rome, Smelly Maps. Почти все они сделаны дизайнерами «со стороны», упомянуты в одном твите или картинке в OSM и забыты. «Прикольно, но не про нас».

Города, заканчивающиеся на -ск* (темнее — больше доля): визуализация Places!

Мы много говорим о пользе OpenStreetMap и постоянно чувствуем тягу к картам. Хотя не каждый сможет описать, чем так хорошо рисование или просмотр карт. Это же не только поиск маршрута к магазину и не только обклацывание домиков для координации гуманитарной помощи. Хорошая карта не только точно отражает состояние местности. Но и даёт лучше понять окружающий мир, показывает неожиданные закономерности в сетке улиц или парков вокруг твоего дома. Карта может быть книгой, вчитываясь в которую узнаёшь об истории, геометрии, градостроительстве, дизайне, лингвистике, о привычках и обычаях жителей. Можешь увидеть схожесть и различия в жизни своего города и европейского, и даже между своим и соседним кварталами.

Картографические визуализации — такое же непаханое поле, как инструменты для работы с OpenStreetMap. Статьи в википедии двумерны, но OSM трёхмерен, и потому хороших визуализаций должно быть не пять и не сорок пять, а сотни и тысячи. И лучшие из них должны быть собраны на красивом информативном сайте. Для этого нужно, чтобы мы перестали относиться к карте как к «открытой базе геоданных всей планеты» и увидели мир за набором точек, линий и отношений.

OpenStreetMap User's Diaries: What's cooking at Mapbox this week

As a part of our data transparency efforts at Mapbox. We created osm-edit-report which helps anyone visualize our teams contribution to OSM.

Just to give a measure, the data team added 0.3 Million objects, 0.2 Million tags, and 3 thousand changesets last week.

This is how the numbers look:

objects-created

Since this data is so huge to grasp at one go, we also have filters which help trim down data and focus on a particular group.

  • Filter by users.

Filter-user

  • Filter by tags

filter-tags

  • Filter by BBox

filter-bbox

The user table showcases all edits made by each user over the course of a week. The saturated blue boxes help emphasize huge edits and the chevrons compare today's edits with the weekly average. table

Overall this tool helps us benchmark our mapping efforts and visualize out priority areas. Please don't forget to share your views on how to make our mapping efforts more transparent.

OpenStreetMap User's Diaries: Iniciativa Scout Mappers

Desde el año 2011 se viene trabajando incansablemente en la implementación de una especialidad scout enfocada principalmente a las ramas mayores de la Asociación scout de Colombia. Inicialmente el programa pionero en el mundo, utilizó fiel papers como recurso tecnológico de levantamiento de datos en campo, con el pasar del tiempo se a cerrado la brecha tecnológica facilitando aun más la especialidad, utilizando las aplicaciones en los dispositivos móviles a permitido la consolidado la idea. Los socios estratégicos que han creído en el potencial de la iniciativa en los jóvenes scouts, permitieron que después de muchos trabajos, se cristalizara el pasado 27 de Noviembre del 2016 de forma oficial la entrega de la primera insignia a nivel mundial de la iniciativa Scout Mappers gracias a la donación de la insignias por parte de @mapillary

OpenStreetMap User's Diaries: Potlatch 2.5

A new version of Potlatch 2 with several improvements and bugfixes:

  • 'New-style' multipolygons are supported, where the tags are placed on the relation rather than the outer way. When you edit such a multipolygon, look at the bottom of the tag editor; you'll see that it's displaying the relation tags rather than the way. If you do want to change the tags on the way, you can choose that from the little dropdown menu there.
  • Pop-up dialogue boxes are now generally resizable.
  • In the Advanced tag view, long tag values now wrap onto multiple lines.
  • The background menu is now usable on smaller screens.
  • A 'Clear all' button on the Bookmarks menu.
  • Shift-drag to zoom into a particular area; shift-click + or - to zoom three levels at a time; and you can now zoom out beyond zoom level 14, in which case no data will be displayed or loaded.
  • Shift-< and > jump 10 nodes at a time along a way.
  • Code now compiles with Apache Flex as well as with (older) Adobe Flex.
  • Plus a bunch of other small fixes.

Potlatch 2 is somewhere between 'active development' and 'maintenance mode': there's no massive new features that I'm planning, but I intend to keep making small improvements to it along these lines, plus extra features as and when I'm doing some mapping and figure out a way to make it easier or quicker to use. OSM is lucky to have such an excellent default editor in iD, which gives P2 the freedom to develop as an efficient and comfortable editor for those who like its way of doing things.

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

  • 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 dispense with the prohibition of copying, in addition to your partial decree on the attribution.

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.

OpenStreetMap User's Diaries: Some vandalism

Vandalism on UP campus

After checking some data of our campus I spot odd additions to the campus map. a User edited some information regarding the name and added some shops that did not exist. I contacted them and asked to revert changes made. Will monitor and follow the steps to correct data if not corrected.
