Bình Châu Commune's new breakwaters - dim 1 jui 2018 - 15:07

Bình Châu Commune of Ba Ria Vung Tau Province launched new breakwaters in 2015, sadly the bay and waters of the port hadn't been mapped until... 5 minutes ago. Finally they appear here, clear and beautiful, as if it's Mona Lisa in a fine arts museum.

Ateliers régionaux de formation cartographie numérique et SIG libres (Lomé, mai 2018) - dim 1 jui 2018 - 11:16

Du 14 au 25 mai 2018, c’est tenu à Lomé un atelier de renforcement de capacités organisationelles et techniques en Cartographie numérique OpenStreetMap et SIG Libre. L’association OpenstreetMap du Bénin à été representé par trois (3) de ses membres actifs. L’atelier a été mise en oeuvre par des experts de l’Association LesLibresGeographes (LLG), en collaboration avec le PEOF (Projet Espace OpenStreetMap Francophone) et soutenu par l'Organisation Internationale de la Francophonie(OIF). Cette formation a réuni 25 formateurs des Communautés OpenStreetMap d'Afrique de l’Ouest et de la France. Ces ateliers étaient orienté sur deux aspects : aspects organisationnelles et techniques.

Sur le plan organisationnel, c’était l’occasion pour certains mappeurs d’appprendre entre autres: les différents outils et méthodes de Gestion Axée sur le Résultat, écriture de projet de formation, le reporting financier pour d’autres c’était là l’occasion d’un rappel et de consolidation des connaissances sur ces sujets très important dans l’animation du projet OpenStreetMap. cliquer ici

Sur les aspects techniques, nous avions travaillé sur les IDS, introduction au logiciel de statistique R et bien d’autres aspects techniques. cliquer ici

Ces deux semaines d’atelier furent une très belle opportunité de partage d'expériences, d'acquisition de nouvelles connaissances et compétences.

  • Heather Leson, from OSMF board, published a blog post asking for experiences with diversity issues in the OSM community. She named her efforts to raise awareness on gender issues in OSM as "Open Gender Monologues". Heather Leson together with Kate Chapman, will host a session on this topic at the State of Map in Milan (July 28 – 30, 2018). There are a number of controversial comments below her blog post.
  • The tagging mailing list is discussing (1, 2) the spin-off of the tagging templates from the Editor iD and the development as its own project. There are contributors who express their perspective around the tagging decisions made for iD editor.
  • User mapeadora published a diary entry about the perception of gender equality in OSM. While the final results of a survey on this topic will be published later at the SotM in Milan, she already posted some preliminary results. 33 men and 24 women from 14 countries answered the survey. If you want that survey to become more relevant, the survey can be answered in 7 languages.
  • The International Journal of Geo-Information published the paper "Mapping Urban Land Use at Street Block Level Using OpenStreetMap, Remote Sensing Data, and Spatial Metrics".
  • After a long process, the team of uMap Latam successfully migrated and updated the service avoiding the loss of the maps and the need for users to manually migrate their maps at UMAP Latam.
    This instance of uMap hosts more than 1400 maps for Latin America and the world.
OpenStreetMap Foundation
  • Since the preliminary agenda of the OSMF board meeting on June 21 included the non-public agenda item to discuss rules on the admission of regional representatives, Michael Reichert has asked the board to discuss these criteria with the members before they will be decided.
  • The minutes of the meeting of the License Working Group on June 14th are now public. Among the topics in agenda, there were the new terms and conditions for usage.

  • FOSS4G Hokkaido was held in Sapporo, Japan on June 22nd and 23rd. The video of the Core day and Tweet summary is online. And some session’s slides are linked from the program table. OpenStreetMap was mentioned in some sessions.
  • This year’s State Of The Map US will take place in Detroit, Michigan, from October 5th to 7th.
Humanitarian OSM
  • OSM in Zambia has grown from a few mappers in 2016 to hundreds today. As HOT reports, microgrants from HOT and Nethope Device Challenge as well as funding from GIZ and World Bank allowed OSM Zambia to purchase mapping equipment for new contributors. The mapping activity includes the collection of baseline geodata as well as for the Lusaka Sanitation Program, aiming to prevent diseases such as cholera.
  • The release of version 4.12.0 of the OpenStreetMap Carto stylesheet has been announced on the mailing list. The only major change was the removal of subpixel accuracy for areas. Minor changes include the rendering of tourism=information subtypes and vertical objects rendering and tuning, and the rendering for place=quarter and historic=city_gate.
  • The OpenStreetMap blog features a detailed article for potential new OSM data users. If you are planning to switch your maps/websites to OSM, make sure to give it a read!
  • Telenav joins Mapbox and Facebook by publishing their efforts about future of mapping driven by omnipresence of sensors, artificial intelligence, and machine learning. In the same blog post they launched a competition to improve their training data sets, detections and releasing three key components of their OpenStreetCam stack, namely the training set of images, machine-learning technology and the detection results.
  • K_Sakanoshita updated his "Machi-aruki Map maker". With this tool, you can create a map showing vectors in your favourite stroke and save them as PNG or SVG. The UI is Japanese, but it can be used all over the world. He explains how to use it on his blog.
  • Nikolai Janakiev continues his data analysis articles with "Compare Countries and Cities with OpenStreetMap and t-SNE" where he takes a closer look at how to use the amenity distributions to compare and cluster countries and cities.
  • [1] Nikolai Janakiev wrote a tool for visualizing OSM data through heat-maps using Blender and Python.
  • Version 2.9.1 of the iD editor has been released. amenity=shelter no longer implies building=yes, instead the preset now includes building as option. Besides a lot of preset changes and additions, two bug fixes, minor usability changes and a walkthrough change, the resolution of Bing Streetside was improved.
  • Version 3.2 of QGIS, codename "Bonn" (where the 16th QGIS developers meeting took place in 2016), has been released on June 24th. A visual changelog was also published.
OSM in the media
  • The German IT newspaper "Netzwelt" published an article about the advantages of OSM over Google. The key argument, access to the raw data, was bolstered with an OSM-based study from a travel website about the greenest cities worldwide. (Hint: Reykjavík, Auckland and Bratislava are numbers 1 to 3)
Other “geo” things
  • As reported (automatic translation), Google is updating its data for Germany. Although they improved the cameras on their cars last year, there are no plans to update the Street View images as the German data protection law prevents it according to a statement from Google. Instead they are collecting data for an improvement of street names, road geometries and POI data.
  • The Swiss Federal Office of Topography is asking for help to georeference historical images of the country. Even if you can’t help, you may want to browse through over 50,000 historical images of Switzerland.
  • StreetCred, created partly due to the shutdown of Mapzen, is estimating that there are 1 billion POIs across the world. The company announced that they want to build a marketplace to buy POI data from users that collect the data and sell it to companies. The collecting users will be rewarded with a blockchain currency called StreetCred token.
  • ESRI has published 33 football related statistical maps under the title "The World Cup in 33 Maps".

A Quarter of a Million Images of Turkmenistan - sam 30 juin 2018 - 19:42

As of today I have broken a quarter of a million images uploaded to Mapillary that any OSM user can use for helping map Turkmenistan. I still have over 20K more images to upload from the Serhetabad trip and last Monday's day trip to Magtymguly (Garry Gala).

Sometime this year I will depart Turkmenistan, so am feeling some pressure to collect as much data as possible before moving back to the United States.

نکاتی در مورد نحوه ترسیم خروجی ها و تقاطع ها - sam 30 juin 2018 - 18:02

همانطور که م‌یدانید بعد از ترسیم یک جاده در سایت ، باید نوع آن جاده را مشخص کنیم . یعنی مشخص کردن درجه راه به صورت بزرگراه (Motorway ) یا جاده شهری (Residental Road ) یا مثلا جاده درجه اول (Primary ) یا درجه دوم (Secondary ) نکته حائز اهمیت اینجاست که زمانی که یک مسیر خروجی یا تقاطع در حال ترسیم می باشد مثل خروجی از میدان یا تقاطع دو جاده با هم ، باید خط ترسیم شده به صورت (Link ) ثبت شود . این نکته را همیشه در نظر داشته باشد که (Link ) باید از نوع جاده با درجه اهمیت بیشتر زده شود مثلا : تقاطع یا خروجی Motorway به Trunk Road باید به صورت Motorway Link ثبت شود. تقاطع یا خروجی Tertiary Road به Secondary Road باید به صورت Secondary Link ثبت شود. و ...

Знаки - sam 30 juin 2018 - 9:27

Вчера на форуме в очередной раз высказали мнение, что будущее открытой картографии — за автоматическим распознаванием. Несколько компаний исследуют это направление уже много лет. Самая заметная из них — Mapillary, «народные панорамы». Дождавшись, когда база фотографий подрастёт до сотен миллионов, они начали выяснять, что же на них запечатлено. В январе 2015 года Mapillary показали слой с дорожными знаками и спустя несколько месяцев добавили его в JOSM и iD.

Две недели назад они анонсировали большое обновление набора дорожных знаков. За это время от машинного зрения они перешли к машинному обучению, прокатали через него на порядок больше снимков, а в октябре ещё и запустили «игру», в которой человеку нужно оценить точность распознавания.

Telenav с их конкурирующим проектом OpenStreetCam занимается примерно тем же — но с конкретной целью улучшить OSM, а не только собрать базу «на всякий случай». Филипп Кэндал, руководитель разработки, рассказал в 2016 году, что его команда пишет распознавалку знаков и указателей и уже уточнила двадцать тысяч ограничений на карте. За автоматикой, по его словам, будущее.

Для картографов OSM знаки в плагинах Telenav появились только в феврале этого года: всего полмиллиона и лишь в США и Канаде. Зато они сравнивают распознанные ограничения с данными OpenStreetMap, и картографов можно оповестить о необходимости уточнить карту. В апреле эту функциональность добавили в модуль для JOSM.

Наконец, в мае Telenav снова признался в верности открытому сообществу, опубликовав весь код распознавания знаков и натренированную модель под открытой лицензией Mozilla. Саму базу знаков тоже скоро откроют. Мартайн предлагает задействовать эту нейросеточку для распознавания новых типов объектов: скамеек, фонарных столбов, остановок. Чтобы это открытие не прошло незамеченным, Telenav объявил конкурс: сделайте свой проект до 17 августа и выиграйте 10 тысяч долларов — если он распознает более 94% объектов. Условия расплывчаты — вероятно, более опытные участники таких конкурсов поймут, что к чему.

А что Mapbox? Странным образом, они тоже участвуют в этом ажиотаже — но до недавнего времени только командой картографии. В 2016 году они собрали интерактивную карту, сопоставляющую знаки от Mapillary и данные OSM (что Telenav, напомним, делает автоматически) и улучшали нашу карту — только в США, конечно. 13 июня этой карте пришёл конец, хотя все исходники доступны на github. А на следующий день Вирджиния из команды машинного обучения Mapbox раскрыла, что они взяли у Bing снимки StreetSide на 23 американских города, прогнали их через нейросеточки и получили новую интерактивную карту со 184 тысячами распознанных ограничений движения. Их команда картографов медленно продирается через этот набор данных, но от помощи они не откажутся.

Все эти компании распознают знаки на фотографиях, но автоматизируют только это — и, иногда, сопоставление с ограничениями в OpenStreetMap. А внесение в базу геоданных — ни-ни. Отчасти потому, что знаки не соответствуют никаким объектам на карте, они лишь задают свойства для уже существующих дорог. Причём не всегда привязанные к координатам знаков. Сопоставлять знаки и карту непросто, тем более, если с целью карту улучшить.

Другая причина — сообщество OSM не разделяет мнение Филиппа, что автоматическое распознавание — будущее картографии. Лучше в сто раз медленнее, но руками, с тёплыми ламповыми ошибками и чувством удовлетворения от работы, неведомым алгоритму. Фейсбук уже несколько лет пытается переломить это заблуждение — на конференции SotM в Милане через месяц они снова расскажут, как взаимодействуют с сообществом в Таиланде, куда импортируют распознанные нейросетями дороги.

OpenStreetMap Mexico is part of the working group on humanitarian data and technologies of the Mexican National Center for Disaster Prevention (CENAPRED) - sam 30 juin 2018 - 0:44
OpenStreetMap Mexico's data governance strategy

In Mexico, a working group of 8 people from the OpenStreetMap Mexico community has been formed since 2014, with varied profiles and several axes among which [1] the community training to add more users to OpenStreetMap, [2] the management with local and federal public institutions for the integration of OpenStreetMap and other geographical open data sources to their planning actions as well as for the opening of public data, and [3] an evolution of their methods to include a greater participation of the citizenship in the production and use of information.

One of the most consolidated topics of the international OpenStreetMap community is the generation and distribution of data in humanitarian contexts, in a preventive manner or after a crisis. The high frequency of natural cataclysms that affect the Mexican territory has given this group many opportunities for dialogue and collaborations with federal institutions and organizations (National Digital Strategy, CENAPRED, Red Cross, Doctors Without Borders, Greenpeace, Techo, Observatorio de la Vivienda, etc.), as well as towards affected states, for the generation and opening of up-to-date territorial data that make it possible to speed up rescue and reconstruction operations.

The first type of effort was training officials and organizations to familiarize them with OpenStreetMap and its potential for sustainable local management of territorial data. In response to various disasters since 2014, we have acted more directly to collaborate by providing information in real time to these institutions through tasking managers.

In parallel, we have had a constant effort of long-term linkage to establish a critical path where OpenStreetMap remains in the panorama of the actors of the data ecosystem for post-disaster interventions.

The main difficulty in this initiative has been to identify the correct channels to give an output to the information mapped by the community in Tasking-Managers created on each occasion, and identify with local institutions the real data needs to intervene on site. The administrative context is a general lack of access to public information, both for civil society and for other administrations. Another difficulty is the absence of clear critical routes so that organizations and institutions that collaborate with data can organize themselves and fulfill useful roles without overlapping.

The impact is a great difficulty and confusion to simply think together about the concrete need for data and the idea of collaboration, as well as about the potential for enriched data once opened and socialized.

Invitation from OSM Mexico to the working group on humanitarian data and technologies

As a result of a continuous and persistent presence during several years, the federal institution of risk management (National Center for Disaster Prevention - CENAPRED) invited us to be part of a scheme that will leave the next government for 2019. This working group is justified by the same shared awareness of the value of companies and civil society with expertise and stability over time, to act hand in hand with the Federal Government and collaborate with their communities in data creation. It is also justified by the awareness of the challenge of generating an institutionalized scheme and lasting channels of joint work. Finally, in Mexico as in other countries, the changes of administration represent another challenge: to transmit a vision, a learning, and a structure to the next administration, and to go beyond a single governmental team.

The group of humanitarian data and technologies faces these three challenges. Given the imminent and repeated risk of other disasters and the need to have different skills, the group brings together civil society organizations, companies and different public institutions with a multiplied potential for action, monitoring and evaluation of public action.

Functions of the workgroup

The group, interconnected continuously and with biannual meetings, will be able to follow up on different types of emergencies and define actions under a principle of complementarity and immediacy, as well as risk prevention and vulnerability reduction through information. In the face of a disaster threat, specifically, each member will be able to fulfill a role, a type of data to be generated or processed, to be the bridge to other specialized networks and communities. It will also be possible to define lines of action in the long term, working on vulnerabilities through data, technologies and infrastructures. The group could act as an entity that evaluates transparency and monitoring.

Part of the first actions before the change of government at the end of 2018 will be a digital simulation, which will measure the reaction capacity of the members and better define roles and specialties.

Long-term objective of OpenStreetMap Mexico

Through this participation, we intend to contribute to the construction of a sustainable public data ecosystem where authorities, private and civil communities share in a very short time an improved information for each one.

  1. Design of an accurate collaboration scheme with companies and institutions providing satellite images
  2. Definition of data not provided in an updated manner and accessible by the National Institute of Statistics and Geography or by another agency, and necessary
  3. Construction of the precise channel of information exchange in real time
  4. Construction of specialized groups of emergency mappers by OpenStreetMap
  5. A system of direct communication of the data for download destinated to the workgroup and the authority-destination, as well as towards the general public.

OpenStreetMap México integra el grupo de trabajo y tecnologías humanitarias del Centro Nacional de Prevención de Desastres - sam 30 juin 2018 - 0:18
La estrategia de gobernanza de datos de OpenStreetMap México

En México, un grupo de trabajo de 8 personas de la comunidad OpenStreetMap México se ha conformado desde el 2014, con perfiles variados y siguiendo varios ejes entre cuales [1] la capacitación comunitaria para sumar más usuarios a OpenStreetMap, y [2] la gestión con instituciones públicas locales y federales para la integración de OpenStreetMap y otras fuentes de datos geográficos abiertos a sus acciones de planeación así como para la apertura de los datos públicos, además de [3] una evolución de sus métodos para incluir una mayor participación de la ciudadanía en la producción y uso de la información.

Uno de los temas más consolidados de la comunidad internacional de OpenStreetMap es la generación y distribución de datos en contexto humanitario, de manera preventiva o después de una crisis. La elevada frecuencia de cataclismos naturales que afecta el territorio mexicano ha dado a este grupo muchas ocasiones de diálogo y gestiones con instituciones federales y organizaciones (Estrategia Digital Nacional, CENAPRED, Cruz Roja, Médicos Sin Fronteras, Greenpeace, Techo, Observatorio de la vivienda, etc.), así como hacia estados afectados, para la generación y la apertura de datos territoriales actualizados que permiten agilizar las operaciones de rescate y reconstrucción.

El primer tipo de esfuerzos fue de capacitaciones a funcionarios y organizaciones para familiarizarlos con OpenStreetMap y su potencial para una gestión local sustentable de los datos territoriales. Ante distintos desastres desde el 2014, actuamos de manera más directa para colaborar aportando información en tiempo real a estas instituciones a través de tasking managers.

De manera paralela, hemos tenido un esfuerzo constante de vinculación a largo plazo para establecer una ruta crítica donde OpenStreetMap quede en el panorama de los actores del ecosistema de datos para intervenciones post-desastre.

La principal dificultad en esta iniciativa ha sido identificar los canales correctos para dar una salida a la información mapeada por la comunidad en [Tasking-Managers creados en cada ocasión(, e identificar con las instituciones locales las necesidades reales de datos para intervenir en sitio. El contexto administrativo es una falta de acceso generalizada a la información pública, tanto para la sociedad civil como para otras administraciones. Otra dificultad es la ausencia de rutas críticas claras para que las organizaciones e instituciones que colaboran con datos puedan organizarse y cumplir con roles útiles sin superponerse.

El impacto es una gran dificultad y confusión para simplemente pensar en conjunto sobre la necesitad concreta de datos y la idea de colaboración, así como sobre el potencial de enrequecimiento de los datos una vez abiertos y socializados.

Invitación de OSM México al grupo de trabajo sobre datos y tecnologías humanitarias

Como efecto de una presencia continua y persistente de varios años, la institución federal de gestión de riesgos (Centro Nacional de Prevención de Desastres) nos invitó el formar parte de un esquema que dejará al próximo gobierno para 2019. Este grupo de trabajo se justifica por la misma conciencia compartida del valor de las empresas y organizaciones de la sociedad civil con cierta expertise y estabilidad en el tiempo, para actuar de la mano con el Gobierno Federal y colaborar con sus comunidades en la gestión de datos. Se justifica también por la conciencia del reto que representa generar un esquema institucionalizado y canales duraderos de trabajo conjunto. Finalmente, en México como en otros países, los cambios de administración representan otro reto: trasmitir una visión, un aprendizaje, y una estructura a la administración siguiente, y tracender un solo equipo gubernamental.

El grupo de datos y tecnologías humanitarias se enfrenta a esos tres retos. Ante el riesgo inminente y repetido de otros desastres y la necesidad de contar con diferentes pericias, el grupo junta a organizaciones de la sociedad civil a empresas y distintas instituciones públicas con un potencial multiplicado de acción, de seguimiento, de evaluación de la acción pública.

Funciones del grupo de trabajo

El grupo, interconectado de manera contínua y con juntas bianuales, podrá dar seguimiento a diferentes tipos de emergencia y definir acciones bajo un principio de complementariedad y de inmediatez, además de prevención del riesgo y reducción de vulnerabilidades a través de la información. Ante una amenaza de desastre, concretamente, cada miembro podrá cumplir con un rol, un tipo de datos por generar o procesar, ser el puente hacia otras redes y comunidades especializadas. Tambien se podrán definir líneas de acción a largo plazo, trabajando sobre vulnerabilidades a través de datos, tecnologías e infraestructuras. El grupo podría fungir como un ente evaluador de transparencia, y de monitoreo de las acciones del CENAPRED y otras instancias de gobierno.

Parte de las primeras acciones antes del cambio de gobierno a finalizar el año, será un simulacro digital, que permitirá medir la capacidad de reacción de los miembros y definir mejor roles y especialidades.

Objetivo a largo plazo de OpenStreetMap México

A través de esta participación pretendemos abonar a la construcción de un ecosistema de datos públicos sostenible donde autoridades, privados y comunidades civiles comparten en un tiempo muy corto una información mejorada por cada uno.

  1. Diseño de un esquema de colaboración preciso con empresas e instituciones provedoras de imágenes satelitales
  2. Definición de los datos no proveidos de manera actualizada y accesible por el Instituto Nacionale de Estadística y Geografía ni por otro organismo, y necesaria
  3. Construcción del canal preciso de intercambio de información en tiempo real

Cyber Fan? - ven 29 juin 2018 - 18:55

It seems I have gained a cyber fan.

I have been adding previously unmapped roads to the database using satellite imagery, but mainly in areas I have traveled, as recently as within the past two weeks. There is a particular user who seems to be chasing and changing my recent edits around the map. I say "chasing" because I moved to a totally different area of the map I don't usually work on and this user still found and changed my work.

My main goal is to map roads that aren't in the database yet, but it seems this user is mainly just tracking my changesets and changing what I tag when I add the roads.

Is it frustrating for the mapper? Yes indeed. Frustrating is someone else changing the classification of a road I just drove on in a regular car. I might not be as frustrated if this user was also working at adding to the road network but the bulk of their edits are changing and deleting other users work.

Rhetorical question, but if everything I classify and tag will be shortly changed after I save, should I just add the road geometry with no tags at all and let this other user do all the tagging work?

I understand the OSM project is open to all and every user has the right/ability to change information they deem to be inaccurate. But isn't it rather rude to single someone out and chase their work around the map, rather than add new information to the database?

Not really looking for comments - I'm just venting and sharing in case others are experiencing the same issue.
