@CjMalone (from the OSM Ireland Telegram group): Are they postcode centroids or polygons?

The Foundation board (which I'm on), are thinking of adopting a new, updated guidelines on how to attribute when you use it.

I created a library to read data files (PBF, XML, OSC) initially to scratch my own itch. But it's nice that some others are apparentlying finding it and using it and sending me patches. 🙂🙂

@Som89 ACM can be regular of associate membership, you should have had a choice. You can email MWG to switch to regular membership.

The only difference is that regular members are legally members under UK law, which has some privacy implications, and can be elected to the board of directors

If that worries you too, please become a voting member of the Foundation - and maybe even join a working group. Governance begins with you meddling in and you are welcome ! twitter.com/joshsimmons/status

Bad news folks, Ireland's song Maps didn't make it through the semis of the Song Contest, so the finals on Saturday will be less themed than it should have been.

@CjMalone I can imagine! 🙂 Qgis is pretty powerful and can do a lot. Which can lead to more complexity for simple uses. 🙂

What ever works for you

@CjMalone how are you loading osm data into qgis? You could run osm2pgsql to import osm data into a local postgresql server and point qgis at that? or load some shapefiles from geofabrik (where I work) download.geofabrik.de . If you need any help with any of that, just let me know.

I haven't used it properly, but I've heard Mapertive is supposed to be easier for that too, have you tried that?

@Doudouosm Have you seen this talk at sotm? 2019.stateofthemap.org/session

It's a good point about how the OSM model isn't great for these sort of things...

@karlos Congrats! I got my first shot recenty too. 🙂🙂
