@rory Dunno how such things are meant to be handles, but is the slow demise of help.openstreetmap.org on the agenda for the next OSMF board meeting? Half the functionality has gone again.
Apparently the desktop version of https://coronavirus.data.gov.uk/ now uses an OpenStreetMap based map for their COVID-19 Dashboard
AKA everyone disagreed with me but that was *days* ago, so I'm going to do it anyway:
People told me they are going to use Google's products because Google is a big company and Google won't be closed soon.
And they were right about Google won't be closed soon. Anyways, I used Wave, Hangouts, Translator Toolkit, Inbox, YouTube Video Annotation, Code, Pacasa, Orkut, Reader, and Talk.
Cause there's some "what did you do this decade?" talk happening, just wanted to remind you don't stress about that shit. You are not a list of accomplishments, growth isn't always tangible like that.
Very cool feature by @fdroidorg
We all need more of this air gapped friendly functionally
Meanwhile, in the #OpenStreetMap in Asia Telegram channel, somebody from #Facebook reported that they're wrapping up their #mapwithai road mapping efforts in #Indonesia and are planning to start in #Malaysia soon.
Somebody from #Thailand inquired whether they have plans to do follow-up on cleaning data imports FB has done in the past.
Just saw an ad saying I should use what3words to identify my location when calling the emergency services.
l always got the impression that w3w was proprietary, and required an internet connection. Surely that means there are better options for remote emergencies?
Open Location Code, geohash, or anything else computed on the device seem like better ways of shortening locations (both Google Maps and OsmAnd give you OLC without internet). Many of these systems can even be printed on a map.
