Ah another time where I don't know how to make . I'm trying to make a histogram. I should really learn gnuplot (but it can look bleh). Is there a modern tool for that sort of thing? That pynotebook thing?

Vizualizations can be very powerful and impressive and area I haven't put the practice into. I should rectify that.

In the end, I'm just going to use instead of doing it in . I already know lots of stuff, no point trying to use another tool.

I'm playing with Naive Bayes Classifier (of PoIs from ) and the results aren't as good as I hoped/expected 😞

Ung. It seems to be too hard to get to aggregate lots of points into (e.g.) hexagonal/square grids so I can look at the data

Reminder there is RFC7282 for how to run "consensus system"
tools.ietf.org/html/rfc7282

I'm trying to improve my knowledge by using , I wanna make some nice data vizualizations.

But sometimes I just want the power (& speed) of !

I completed 67 #StreetComplete quests while I was out biking today. This feels like something geocache people would like; especially since it has a tangible benefit to others. #OpenStreetMap

How can I get a map in print quality/resolution with more than one gpx drawn on it?

So what I need a service or application where I can upload 5-7 gpx files and get a pdf or other high quality map with those tracks added on, high enough quality that I can send it to a professional print shop.

Yes, I've looked at wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/OS I've also tried inkatlas, which worked, but the tracks does not look good at all.

Thank you!

Another piece of software the apparently can't handle full range of Unicode characters! 🙂

I'm extremely impressed by mapscii. It's an #OpenStreetMap viewer for your terminal. It supports zooming and moving with both the keyboard and the mouse.

It's very UK, sorry, no London-centric but Map Men on YouTube is kind of great, especially if you like that sort of humour.

#Vespucci is a powerful #OpenStreetMap data editor for Android devices, (like #JOSM, on desktop), when you need to edit on the go.

While not available from the list of editors you can just select from the OSM website, it can be launched with Geo URLs, which is easily accessible by clicking the share button from the right-hand side panel, and then the Geo URL itself. This will launch #Vespucci (or other apps) you have that supports Geo URLs.

Tada! Awesome editing on mobile! Have fun!

I always knew about WayMarkedTrails, the site showing , routes from .

But only today did I discover you can click on "Routes" in bottom to bring up a dynamic display of the routes on the map, click on them to see details and the whole route, etc. That's awesome.

The opening hours are working with a prototype server. The Mozilla Things gateway can be pointed at a URL like /way/92406904/opening_hours to get the state of any #OpenStreetMap element. The server will request the element, read the opening_hours tag and determine the current state.

Help needed: how do you ensure that route relations in OSM are still valid?

My problem: I edit bus routes and they are fine. Later, someone splits a way and does not assign the new way to the route relation. The relation itself is untouched but now it has a gap.

Current option: home-made script that downloads relations and checks whether all the ways are still connected. Alternative: manually checking OSM Inspector every few days. Slow and painful.

Any idea anyone?
