has released more of their computer vision road detection results for nearly all countries for """"import"""" into

And the data is bad.


Facebook is detecting walls as roads, because walls are lines too

Facebook detects some of these lines in a field as roads, others not. Because why not

I have no idea why thinks there is a street network in the middle of this lake

It took me a few minutes to find this crap in Facebook's data.

Tried to raise this with FB got the typical smarmy consdescing tone policy shite you expect from corporate america.

If you don't like what Facebook is doing, consider joing the the Foundation, to help set _some_ policy direction (though OSM is happily quite anarchistic).

I beat the FB candidate for the board by 1 vote a few weeks ago, so every little helps!


@rory I got the 'renew now to stay eligibile to vote' and the 'roughly a month minus a week 'til the election' email, but didn't see the one from the new voting platform.
It might be nice if the secretary also sent out an email saying 'voting open, check your inbox'.

@InsertUser There is the osmf-talk mailing list ( lists.openstreetmap.org/listin ) which new OSMF members aren't on by default, cause many aren't used to how discussion/talk/chat mailing lists like that work. If you subscribe to that, you'll get notices like that.

@InsertUser shame that you didn't get the ballot email..... You should have!

Can you contact the Membership Working Group ( wiki.osmfoundation.org/wiki/Me ) mwg@osmfoundation.org to check that your OSMF membership is all OK?

@rory after the results were announced I did manage to find the OpaVote emails lost in the newsletters and "infomail". Emails from the OSMF proper get hilighted so I actually see them. Using a novel domain as the only notice that voting is open means that they got buried for me. Of course, I can now add OpaVote noreply to my contacts, but who knows if we'll even be using them next time? A two line email from the OSMF itself after voting was open would have really helped.
