[OSM-dev] Displaying snapshots of BING imagery with current OSM data and an overlaying grid

2014-03-15 Thread Jóhannes Birgir Jensson
Pardon the lengthy topic but it details exactly what I am looking for. I created the Mapping Botswana project and in order to get a fairly hesitant population to contribute I'm thinking of new ways of outreach. A thread on Facebook (with me as Mapping Botswana) managed to get a local to

YAPIS is something that can assist in it. I don't know the project well but it seems to extract POI from Foursquare and GeoCaching and something else. Examples: POI from Foursquare for Bonn http://yapis.geoclub.de/foursquare.php?lat=50.7358511lon=7.1006599 POI from Foursquare for Kópavogur

I've tried several methods of translating OSM and non-OSM stuff for the past 2 decades and as a (non-professional) translator I've found Transifex to be, for me, the best solution to date. Their app lets me translate shorter sentences while idling a few minutues somewhere while I reserve the

[OSM-dev] Automated map of contributions

2015-01-15 Thread Jóhannes Birgir Jensson
For a few months I've made static maps by looking at changesets and putting down a marker on PNG roughly based on the centerpoint of changeset on a map. I've done this for Iceland and Botswana, both sparsely populated countries so the volume has been manageable. 4 examples here from Botswana:

To me this seems like a good step forwards. The pre-filled display name could be the short name (if the API provides it) of the user, like in Facebook URLs (which you can pick) but highlight that they can change the name (and might have to). If the API provides an approximate location

Re: [OSM-dev] iD creates invalid (?) highway tags

2015-10-13 Thread Jóhannes Birgir Jensson
This can occur when a primary and a service road are joined. iD does not know which one it is and so it concatenates them. iD displays the road then as "Highway" with this combined type as key=value. I imagine this could be fairly hard to combat, GUI wise you would need special handling for

One side effect of Maps.me is the editing of name= field (this has been mostly fixed in the latest versions though, most entries now go into name:phone language). I want to be able to do an overpass query for Iceland where name= field contains non-Icelandic characters. These could be for
