At this weekend #OpenStreetMap hack weekend in @geofabrik
I worked on a new idea for “delayed” OSM replication, where changes aren't sent on immediately. This could allow proper community based anti-vandalism.
OpenStreetMap developers are gathering for the "Karlsruhe Hack Weekend" again this coming weekend: https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Karlsruhe_Hack_Weekend_October_2019 Hosted at @Geofabrik offices (or last year there were too many hackers and they needed this overspill room in the university nearby!)
One of #OpenStreetMap'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.
I just did my first GPS tracking using OSMTracker! 😀
Now, even though it's uploaded on openstreetmap.org (https://www.openstreetmap.org/#map=16/0.2965/34.7147&layers=NG), 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
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
#cartober is an interesting idea
Trying out some sort of cartography project every day, a bit like #inktober, but for cartographers. I only started at day 6, but I plan to catch up🙈 My cartober 6 is: largest airports at an altitude of over 3000 feet: https://t.co/TNkZW8e5w6 #creativecarto #esrijs https://t.co/MHOrt9mRwo
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 #OpenStreetMap over time, and here's the obvious one of Ireland's long townland mapping project!

The small, but active #OpenStreetMap community in #Kosovo is holding their first (?) conference in a few weeks “State of the Map South East Europe”. I won't be there, but I wish them luck. I met some of them at #SotM2019 and they seemed a nice bunch. 😃
