Some nice #OpenStreetMap stuff here
Last week we started a new blog series looking back at the long history of Stamen working w/ the #OpenStreetMap community. Part one covered the early years of Stamen & OSM, two best friends setting off on an adventure together! 👯♀️ Part two coming soon... https://hi.stamen.com/our-brilliant-friend-stamen-and-openstreetmap-through-the-years-21840d86ff0a

Us in the #OpenStreetMap Ireland community are doing another long project to map all the buildings on Ireland.
We're making sure to map them properly, not just generic building=yes 😊
#osmIRL_buildings campaign data courtesy of @GIScienceHD@twitter.com. A gradual blitzing of building=yes has taken place as various large tasks were validated. building=house is just about to take over as the most numerous building object tag. #OpenStreetMap
Wir suchen noch immer einen motivierten Freelance Backend-Entwickler, welcher uns bei der weiteren Migration auf #OpenStreetMap unterstützen kann. Danke fürs retweeten! @email@example.com @SwissOSM@twitter.com @OSM_Deutschland@twitter.com 🙏
And while we are on the topic of updates: just updated the #openstreetmap stats here https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Stats#Contributor_statistics_reports seems as if March 2021 with over 54'000 active contributors broke the previous record of 53'000 from January 2017
Today is the last day of #MapPatrick21 which we opened with this https://www.openstreetmap.ie/announcing-mappatrick21/ Each day we have had a hangout here https://osmvideo.cloud68.co/user/cia-coh-zv4-pqz and today we welcome @firstname.lastname@example.org who is going to talk about JOSM #osmIRL #OpenStreetMap
Fellow #OpenStreetMap nerds: Find out how much disk space you're wasting with this simple command:
du -hc `find ~/osm -name '*.osm.pbf'`
In a few hours (12:00 Irish time/UTC) I'll do a 1hr introduction to mapping buildings in #OpenStreetMap with @email@example.com as part of @firstname.lastname@example.org's #MapPatrick21 mapathon for #StPatricksDay

Some performance issues on our #openstreetmap download server in the last couple of days but we've now installed two extra proxies so that's sorted. Also blocked a couple IPs that were downloading several TB each month. If something has stopped working for you, pls get in touch.
