Cool new mapping activity layer at disaster.ninja/live/#overlays= , showing how areas are for local compared to remote mappers, as well as the most active mapper in an area, should be good for some friendly competition.

I received a text message with a Google maps link. So, I added an option in #NitterizeMe that transforms them into #OpenStreetMap links

Just added some bodies of water and hiking trails to OpenStreetMaps. Not even Google Maps lists these ones!

Logging Roads (used to be loggingroads.org a few years ago) is now OSM Earth: osm.earth/

It is (was?) an initiative to monitor logging activities in tropical rainforests: blog.globalforestwatch.org/peo

It used to get endorsed (probably too funded?) by the European Commission, but sorry for the link amnesia.

One of the most common complaints I hear about #OpenStreetMap mapping apps is the slow updates of their internal databases. Fortunately, #OsmAnd offers live updates that can be set for weekly, daily, or even hourly incremental updates! 😍

Many consider their cartography needs more love, but it's functional and feature-full.

Starting to wonder how experienced the Grab Team is who are doing the mapping.

It’s in the name, I guess ;) #Grab grabs #OpenStreetMap data, floods #OSM with incorrect edits and refuses to abide by the attribution rules. Where’s my surprised face? techcrunch.com/2018/12/19/grab
