OpenStreetMap developers are gathering for the "Karlsruhe Hack Weekend" again this coming weekend: wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Ka Hosted at @Geofabrik offices (or last year there were too many hackers and they needed this overspill room in the university nearby!)

@karlos `cuisine` tag might be useful for that `cuisine=afternoon_tea`?

@oakreef latter. Places abroad. Places which sell themselves as β€œIrish pubs”,

Even comparing pubs between Ireland & England & Germany and things are different enough to get into tagging discussions and to come up with differences.

One of '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.

New project: Mapping & Tagging pubs! I'm using `theme=irish` tag (as per discussion on tagging@ & talk-ie@ lists). Now to search the database to find them and tag them.

@InsertUser no, haven't heard anything. we're probably too small here.

@InsertUser I've no idea. I don't follow it that closely

@etienne you could just use OSM tile servers to show a map

I just did my first GPS tracking using OSMTracker! πŸ˜€

Now, even though it's uploaded on openstreetmap.org (openstreetmap.org/#map=16/0.29), 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?

@etienne maybe umap? Or if you have html skills and your own website, you might be able to do it yourself with openlayers (or leaflet)

@gxtony @rugk Remember, Apple Maps uses data in many countries πŸ˜‰

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

I'm tempted to go to State of the Map South East Europe in Kosovo in a few weeks... πŸ€”

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

@stragu I've been trying to an OSM edit a day for about 2 years now. It's not so hard. πŸ™‚

is an interesting idea

Trying out some sort of cartography project every day, a bit like , but for cartographers. I only started at day 6, but I plan to catch upπŸ™ˆ My cartober 6 is: largest airports at an altitude of over 3000 feet: t.co/TNkZW8e5w6 t.co/MHOrt9mRwo
