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'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. 😃
I'm a little worried about Facebook's plans to use their computer vision algorithms for buildings into #OpenStreetMap. I just don't trust them. They had to be dragged kicking and screaming to actually interact with the #OSM community, and if we're not careful, they'll stomp all over our map.
Really tempted to make some LGBTQ* variants of the #OpenStreetMap logo
People in #OpenStreetMap should understand why self hosted open, non corporate, social media is good. Cmon!
I'm a long time #OpenStreetMap person and even I need to sit down with a pen & paper to make sure I calculate slippy map tiles numbers properly. (I was off by a power of 2 before!)
The #Trunk is several lists of people who post about a topic here on the fediverse. It's a good way for new people to get started by finding people who share their interest.
And now there's a list for OpenStreetMap folk! 🙂 If you toot a lot about #OSM and would like to help new people, request to be added to the list. Or use it to find other OSMers to follow.
