Indeed the switch2osm.org/Β  site has been undergoing a revamp lately. Check it out and link people to it if they need to switch to OpenStreetMap!twitter.com/SteveC/status/1205

I serendipitously discovered a new feature of JOSM's extrude tool (X) which can make certain kind of building mapping much easier! πŸ™‚ πŸŽ‰

@rory @all Just if you know one: Looking for an Rust example with key-down/up and drawing lines etc. on a window (linux/macOS)

Looks like I gotta do another batch of stickers. Running out of what I have now. I'm gonna try flyeralarm for round ones, cause that seems much cheaper

Inspired by the traditional Advent calendar, is going to publish a simple mapping challenge everyday for the entire month of December 2019, with the purpose of contributing to while having fun: wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Po.

I'm a candidate for the Foundation board. I'll do a video chat/conference if you wanna ask me anything. Details here:

Hashtag correction: it's - and yesterday's event seems to be the first ever themed in . Has this been done elsewhere?

The participants seems to have enjoyed the mapping event, with one person quipping they wished the event was much longer, to maximise their effort of being present for the day.

Their SNS: nitter.net/mapbeks

I had the pleasure to visit the beautiful town of Ayabaca in the Peruvian Andes. There was a lot to do for Open Street Mapping

TenΓ­a el placer de visitar la bonita cuidad de Ayabaca en los Andes Peruanos. Hubo mucho que hacer en cuanto al mapeo de Open Street Map.

We had an awesome day today at #colab, with the back-to-back sessions by the #MapaBeks and the #GeoLadies

During the morning, they were mapping #hiv testing and counseling facilities.

In the afternoon, they talked about future projects, with several people doing #LightningTalks about #specialEd #schools heritage mapping , and new mapping tools like #MapContrib and MapRoulette

It was a great day for #MapaTime with new and old mappers.

Thanks #OSMph for the #OSMphizza

TIL about @MapBeks@twitter , a group in the Philiphines working to better + stuff in ! πŸ‘πŸ³οΈβ€πŸŒˆπŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒ

I am tempted to do an open video conference session (what songs have called "office hours") for an AMA or my candidacy. Would people be interested to dial in and chat?
