We gotta organise something in my local city. Nothing planned yet. 😔

In August will be 15 years old! Find your local celebration here (it's quite bare now, maybe run an event in your local area? 🙂)

The Kontur Map is another visualization of #OpenStreetMap objects with the #HighResolutionSettlementLayer from #Facebook . It can show areas where mapping work may be prioritized during an emergency mapping response, versus OSM objects and population data. It should be helpful for regular, non-emergency mapping initiatives, too.

Things I wish people would tell me:

It's okay to be queer and not be some counter-cultural revolutionary. It doesn't invalidate you or make you any less of who you are, and it doesn't mean you don't belong. It's okay to just be who you are - and if that means just living your life and trying to find peace, that's perfectly acceptable.

I would like to print out an area (in B&W), but include as much details as possible, with many PoIs so I can navigate based on them

Everytime I am about to travel, I try to an map, and think "Someone should make a better printing service/map style for urban areas".

And I never do.

I have added more than 450 bots of metadata to #osm , using streetcomplete try to beat me

"Mapy.cz" is a *very* nice map & interface. It's got a nice style, and also clickable things, where you can get more data

It's kinda surprising just how effective simple hand fans like that are. If you can't find one (and you're in western Europe), just pop into an "Asian" supermarket, they should have them

My avatar here is the fan I used at in Milan. It was really hot there and I like to think I was a little noticeable with my fan.

That fan fell apart after a few days from overuse, this is a new one (from the same shop).

It's hot where I am. So time to break out the fan!

Want to improve vegan mapping around your area in ways other than adding new POIs? Here are a few suggestions:

(1) Check if existing POIs are tagged with the old cuisine={vegan,vegetarian} scheme and change it to a corresponding diet tag. Instructions in the pad:
