We should own our map (= geodata)

#Marble is a computer globe.

Marble features bookmarks, tours, pathfinding, constellations, and many maps.

Marble is bundled with a topographical map, #OpenStreetMap, and a couple others. But Marble allows for you to download more maps from an easy to use prompt.

Marble also allows for drawing on and annotating the map, enabling education or note taking.

Marble can even predict eclipses with a graphical display of the eclipse's path.

#OSM has a really sweet export function that can spit out raster, vector and PDF formats for print and re-use. How did I miss this (and live without it)? My #screenless nav will now be next level.

#OpenStreetMap goal:

Get GPX traces of local bus routes.

I'm not quite comfortable enough with mapping to update the bus routes, but GPX traces would be good for others, right?

I installed #StreetComplete today and it looks like a really cool and comfortable way to contribute to #OpenStreetMap! A lot of questions (“quests“) for my area that my wife and I can answer when we're strolling through our neighborhood anyway. :) #OSM

Imagine if (or even ) allowed us to use StreetView to add details to ... We'd be able to add so much...

allows us to use StreetSide for mapping, but that coverage is tiny and never where I want to map.

Is there a service based on #OpenStreetMap that supports public transport #routing in the browser? :)

I found a few apps and #OpenTripPlanner, but the latter only seems to be the project, not a service. #OSM

Dealing with #OSM data, hoping to bring some consistency and high-value data.
I live in a multilingual area, where street names must be written in different languages.
Another example of careless editing: fixing the main tag but forgetting the other languages just creates a mess.

I had to use to calibrate the compass on my phone. 😔
I don't think my photos were 100% pointing correctly before

If I was good at I could make this GPS/compass/tilt logger myself, but I'm not there now. I'm willing to pay someone to design/make this thing?

Does anyone know of a small device which constantly records GPS location *and* compass orientation and tilt? I have a helmet camera for motorbike which doesn't do that, and if I can strap that sort of thing to it, then I can turn video into mapillary images! 🙂

Does anyone else find very heavy on the battery usage?
