@santiago Back in Ye Olden Days (pre-smart phones), many #OpenStreetMap uses put #OSM maps on their Garmins. Here's some details: https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/OSM_Map_On_Garmin or dl direct from http://garmin.opentopomap.org/
@liluminus honestly, I'm not sure. Maybe just news about OSM, and discussion? Depends who hosts /produces of I suppose
@reclus I looked at the EULA ( https://wikiroutes.info/manual/en/agreement ), and it's bad. The company (#Wikiroutes) owns all data you submit, they can change the EULA/licence at any time, they (and only they) can use it commerically. The only way to get the data is to contact them to ask about prices.
I smell just another company looking for sharecroppers
A particularly nasty variant of armchair mapping: "Mapping from the newspapers".
When the local media announces changes that have been recently voted by local councils, some enthusiasts reflect those in OSM… sometimes years before they are effective.
Streets changing names, extension of pedestrian plazas, mergers between large firms, speed limits…
Possible mitigation: use the "note" key to add a short warning.
@AkuAnakTimur 🤔 if they're copying from a random source, that could be a problem? A data working group problem....
"OSM is super easy, just create an accound and start editing the map!"
I’m not a huge fan of promoting OSM this way.
I love improving the map to add more and more details about my city. It’s much less fun to have to use undelete tools or dig through history to restore mistakes by careless newbies.
I agree that protecting some objects against changes or peer certification will deter new people from joining. But I’d like to hear thoughts about how to protect the map against such edits.
@bxl_forever I think editing software could help. Software which is limited and only allows you to do certain things, and prevents new uses from doing things. StreetComplete is an example of that.
In #OpenStreetMap , users (including anonymous ones) often use notes to leave feedback about map features. I try to initiate conversation with note contributors, and there are many who would respond back. It's heartening to see note contributors starting to map features themselves, after a engaging them positively through notes.
Curious about what was discussed during the recent OSMF Board face-to-face meeting..? Find out! https://blog.openstreetmap.org/2019/05/28/osmf-board-face-to-face-meeting-2019/
