Another reminder: please have a look in your area if there are any `school=entrance`-tags left and replace them with `entrance=yes` or something applicable. This cleans the `school`-key a bit, opening it up for proper tagging. And yes, I did a proposal to deprecate this too - see wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Pr

Yet another step to make school-data broadly usable: today I proposed tagging for special education: wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Pr

I'd love to get comments on it (and yes, it's already sent on the tagging mailing list)

That's a tricky one. It's up to someone with more knowledge of your degree to gauge the level of skill and to see if it matches up to a master or not, but I do think it will as a bachelor can be two or three years.

How often do we not tell you the lead picture of next Sunday's issue #616 ;-) .

A picture from MapComplete almost became the lead picture. But in a vote, a different picture - which also has to do with Belgium - prevailed.

A look at MapComplete is always worthwhile! mapcomplete.osm.be/

the theme on mapcomplete now searches Wikidata for species - which means that it is super-easy to link the wikidata item to a tree one sees!

As added bonus, the title of the popup will show the species automatically in the selected language.
