Always a good idea to leave our comfort zone.

The other day I attached a camera to my bicycle and made a 10-minutes video of a neighbourhood I know well. Then I watched it at home with JOSM ready.

It gives a new perspective and I could add things I usually overlook when surveying on foot: street lamps, advertising screens, some trees…

.@nextcloud is well known as an online file storage system, but did you know it also has a wide range of useful add-ons?

You can take a look at:

apps.nextcloud.com

Some highlights include video chat, collaborative document editing, calendars, music libraries, news feeds etc.

Once you've installed #NextCloud, you can add these extras very easily from the built-in app store.

You can also use NextCloud through a managed service such as owndrive.com or indie.host

any of y'all on Scuttlebutt? (scuttlebutt.nz/) What's it like? From the intro video, it seems both fascinating and real complicated for users...

OH MAH GOSH!
#OSM has a really sweet export function that can spit out raster, vector and PDF formats for print and re-use. How did I miss this (and live without it)? My #screenless nav will now be next level.

@lesbianhacker @Doudouosm Do you know about & ? It's 's Google StreetVIew. If you're taking a GPS trace, why not take photos with them? It will record a GPS trace that's uploaded, but the photos will be very helpful to bus (& other) mappers!

#OpenStreetMap goal:

Get GPX traces of local bus routes.

I'm not quite comfortable enough with mapping to update the bus routes, but GPX traces would be good for others, right?

If you’re in the UK (maybe elsewhere as well ?), you can rent a mapping camera from OSM UK (LG 360 handheld camera or Waylens Horizon dashcam camera) to improve your mapping or contribute to or : osmuk.org/camera-rental/

You can follow multiple hashtags on Mastodon very easily:

1. Search for a hashtag
2. Go to the search results column, open its options and select "Pin"
3. On the pinned column, open its options and select "Include additional tags for this column"
4. Add all the hashtags you want to follow to "Any of these"

This pinned column will then show results for the tags you add to it.

It allows you to follow topics in a single column the same way you would follow people.
