An explanation of the #OSM-Carto road rendering system and its issues and limitations: http://blog.imagico.de/navigating-the-maze-part-1/. #OpenStreetMap #OSMCarto
Some nice #OpenStreetMap stuff here
Last week we started a new blog series looking back at the long history of Stamen working w/ the #OpenStreetMap community. Part one covered the early years of Stamen & OSM, two best friends setting off on an adventure together! 👯♀️ Part two coming soon... https://hi.stamen.com/our-brilliant-friend-stamen-and-openstreetmap-through-the-years-21840d86ff0a

The #Indoor Mapping Landscape in 2021: https://geoawesomeness.com/the-indoor-mapping-landscape-2021-mappedin/. Getting lost indoors might become just as rare as getting lost outdoors. That’s the promise at least, as indoor mapping use cases are popping up regularly as more businesses are realizing the benefits of indoor maps. Is indoor mapping only a business use case? #OpenStreetMap

If you thought Signal was the most privacy minded chat app,you haven't met Session.This is a new breed of encrypted private messenger, built on a unique network of user-operated servers spread all over the world. With no central servers,Session can’t leak or sell your data. #tech
And what's more important:
- you don't need a Google account
- the YouTube content is ad-free
- you can download videos
- it's free and open source
NextCloud is a free open source personal cloud, for sharing files, collaborative editing, messaging and lots more. You can follow at:
Clouds can be accessed through web browsers, or through apps for all major platforms.
You can host a cloud yourself, use a managed hosting service, or sign up on an existing instance.
Find out more from the official site at https://nextcloud.com
Do you want to run your own little corner of the #Fediverse, but you don't have the technical knowledge to install and maintain a server?
A managed hosting company can handle all the technical stuff while you run the instance.
The European Commission has funded an open source project to create a Gateway between the ActivityPub and XMPP PubSub Protocols, and E2EE on PubSub
From goffi: "it's my pleasure to announce that an ActivityPub XMPP gateway doubled with Pubsub end-to-end encryption project has been selected for a grant by NLNet/NGI0 Discovery Fund (with financial support from European Commission's Next Generation Internet programme)".
The XMPP ActivityPub gateway will join two major open and decentralised protocols. In practice it will be a XMPP server component (usable with any server), and implement the ActivityPub server to server protocol (or "Federation Protocol"). On XMPP side, it will be mostly a Pubsub service (with some extra, like private messages converted to XMPP message stanza).
XMPP blogging (XEP-0277: Microblogging over XMPP) will be used, and thus any client supporting it will have access to ActivityPub publications (Libervia and Movim for instance). https://squeet.me/objects/962c3e10d49fcdffb18921bec5dc1b0281d1ad2d
Session runs on a decentralised network of community-run nodes, meaning:
- It can't be easily censored.
- It can't be taken down, even by us.
- It can't hand over your data, even to us.
Most private messengers require trust. We aren't like most private messengers.
This isn't strictly related to the Fediverse, but if you're interested in decentralised social media you might want to try the peer-to-peer @manyver_se at:
It doesn't have any servers, users connect directly to each other, and store personal data on their computer or phone.
It's part of the Scuttlebutt network, and is an attempt to make it more user friendly for non-technical people.

Us in the #OpenStreetMap Ireland community are doing another long project to map all the buildings on Ireland.
We're making sure to map them properly, not just generic building=yes 😊
#osmIRL_buildings campaign data courtesy of @GIScienceHD@twitter.com. A gradual blitzing of building=yes has taken place as various large tasks were validated. building=house is just about to take over as the most numerous building object tag. #OpenStreetMap
