At this weekend hack weekend in @geofabrik
I worked on a new idea for β€œdelayed” OSM replication, where changes aren't sent on immediately. This could allow proper community based anti-vandalism.

Trying to print more stickers, and batteling PDFs. Why does this website imply the background of this is black, not white, when it detect white for other PDFs made from same process! 😒

OpenStreetMap developers are gathering for the "Karlsruhe Hack Weekend" again this coming weekend: Hosted at @Geofabrik offices (or last year there were too many hackers and they needed this overspill room in the university nearby!)

Even comparing pubs between Ireland & England & Germany and things are different enough to get into tagging discussions and to come up with differences.

One of 's goals is (basically) to make a global database and taxonomy of everything/objective geographic facts, and it's amazing how different the same thing can be between similar cultures.

New project: Mapping & Tagging pubs! I'm using `theme=irish` tag (as per discussion on tagging@ & talk-ie@ lists). Now to search the database to find them and tag them.

I just did my first GPS tracking using OSMTracker! πŸ˜€

Now, even though it's uploaded on (, I just found out that this website is not about showing GPS traces details.

Do you know any OSM-based service where we can upload gpx files and display all its information?

I'm pretty astonished that openstreetmap has far more detailed information than any other local navigation apps. It even shows the precise location of toilet in BUILDINGS! Our native apps don't show BUILDINGS at all. #openstreetmap

I'm tempted to go to State of the Map South East Europe in Kosovo in a few weeks... πŸ€”

If you are an #OpenStreetMaps user, I built a simple app that allows to display different maps ordered in categories.

You can use your location and switch easily from a map to another one.

It's really simple currently and we are testing it. The idea is from @Bristow_69




is an interesting idea
Trying out some sort of cartography project every day, a bit like , but for cartographers. I only started at day 6, but I plan to catch upπŸ™ˆ My cartober 6 is: largest airports at an altitude of over 3000 feet:

Many of you who know me know that I make this call regularly. Again and again I realize that in many cities and especially in the countryside some data in Openstreetmaps are missing, from information to shops, addresses or entire streets. Take time 10 to 15 minutes time today and check times near your place of residence at OSM if everything is well maintained there. I thank you.

I'm playing with making graphs of what is being mapped in over time, and here's the obvious one of Ireland's long townland mapping project!

Seeing my changes on #openstreetmap little by little being uploaded to all cool #osm powered apps and services I know feels so, so motivating and rewarding.

Boy ain't open source a wonderful thing.

I'm downloading all the videos from . I can look at them later.

This downloads the SD video quality, because space/bandwidth.
