I contribute to OpenStreetMap, which is the Wikipedia of maps. The reward is a free map that anyone including Apple can use. In my area, it is the most accurate and up to date map that exists, thanks to millions of tiny improvements by thousands of volunteers.
This is effectively a visualization of Dijkstra's shortest path algorithm using street maps. It uses the OpenStreetMap road network and census shapefiles, calculating the shortest path between the origin (downtown) and all other census tracts. It then colors the tracts by the aggregate cost (time) of reaching each one.
This was created using a complex mix of Python (matplotlib, geopandas), bash, PostGIS, and After Effects. You can see the some of the source at GitHub.
As others have said, this is the Firey Gizzard Trail
According to wikipedia, the trail crosses private property and the property owner is no longer allowing access as of 12/1/2015. It says that the owner has offered to sell his property to the state, so this information may be outdated.
here's it's wikipedia article
here's the route on OpenStreetMap
go to openmaps you can hit the 'share' button on the right and download a vector PDF. Open it in illustrator and use the 'select same' tool to remove everything you don't want. Hey presto! you have a scale-able styled map.
> Have you not read the article? They cannot do that, since authorities closed down their local mosque and turned it into a library.
French man living in that suburb. I've followed the story relatively closely, so let me elaborate on information you may not have:
Anyway, it's kind of annoying for the locals sometimes, but it's pretty much a non-story in my opinion. Not saying I'm surprised to see this stuff on the international news though given the current global context around Islam...
Coinmap.org is based on Openstreetmap. You can easily correct wrong entries. https://www.openstreetmap.org/user/new
As annoying as your experience was/is. Please do your own duty by helping this free project getting more accurate.
it is actually noones job to check that stuff, it is users who provide Google with data for free, helping the company to manifest its market leading position they can then abuse.
You can by the way instead help fill Open Street Maps with data. I just recently added a website to some restaurant. Some dude verified it within a day or so and then it was public.
It's not like there is no perfect alternative.
Missing areas seem to be connected to military/government facilities. Open OSM and see if the missing area is crossed out with red diagonal hachure. This seems to be the case in Lublin here (military base and area surrounding it) and in case of this post
But at least it is properly tagged, clearly showing that it is imported data and what the source is: https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/51333770
It is even an official source.
As long as it did not replace an already existing, manually drawn river, then I see no problem. The data is still better than no river.
It looks like Long Island was tagged with natural=scrub on the 9th of April. It was only tagged for a few hours, but I believe the 9th falls in the proposed update window.
Open Street Map is pretty good at categorizing paths/roads, Niantic is simply combining several categories together.
Hopefully there is a distinction for driveways and yours are properly marked as such
As you might already know, areas tagged as natural=plateau on OSM might result in nests in Pokémon Go. These plateaus as geographic feature can cover large areas.
Already last year, Berlin has had a mega nest in the southern part of the city.
If you look at the picture, you can see different “plateaus” in the area that were formed during glacial events. The Teltow plateau seems to be the southern mega nest (the dashed line is the city boundary).
I already figured that the “Barnim plateau” (thick red boundary) could be potentially mapped in OSM and someone seems to have had the same idea.
The southern end is situated at the base of a small hill called “Weinberg” which is the end moraine of a long gone glacier.
I have no means to check the actual abundance of the nesting species (Makuhita) in all of the area marked in OSM. But if that was the case, the nest probably comprises an area of ~1400 km².
edit: I forgot to add the OSM link to the layer
It's unclear from Google Maps what we are supposed to see there. Here is a better link: https://www.openstreetmap.org/relation/2187255#map=11/42.4941/-90.8459
And it's pretty cool. The entire trail (or rather the area around it) is actually marked as leisure=park, that's the reason why it's a nest.
Ganz genau hier: https://www.openstreetmap.org/?mlat=50.91843&mlon=14.23571#map=19/50.91843/14.23571
Wenn mich nicht alles täuscht ist das der Blick von der oberen Affensteinpromenade in Richtung Schrammsteine.
Pödelwitz ist umgeben von mehreren Bundesstraßen. Die sind nicht vorbeigefahren, die waren in Pödelwitz. Sieht man an der Straßenbeleuchtung.
Entirely possible this is because of this slightly over-sized OpenStreetMap landuse=military polygon for the Iowa Air National Guard base which is drawn overlapping up to the McKinley Avenue highway centre line:
Background: similar thing happened in Germany in 2012 when all landuse=military polygons were downloaded from OpenStreetMap (lazy+easy) and then sent to various mapping companies asking for those areas to be blocked out:
That's the likely technical root cause; as to who told whom to do what, that's probably hush hush, and answers are unlikely to be forthcoming.
> I spent an hour deleting these
You should not have done that. In fact, your edits count as vandalism and will likely be reverted (Purposeful removal or degradation of data that are known to be correct).
Adding individual trees is nothing unusual. See for example: Yaoundé, Cameroon and Nice, France (that city alone has ~35000 trees mapped).
> There were so many 'interest points' for the trees it covered up everything else in the area when editing.
That is a problem with your editor, not with the map.
Adding individual parking spaces is also absolutely valid. An issue here is that these parking spaces were mapped as individual parking lots, which is not appropriate. Instead of connecting the parking spaces, you should have changed the mapping from amenity=parking to amenity=parking_space.
When you find changesets that you suspect to be erroneous or of low quality, please reach out to the responsible mapper first such that they can explain their actions and have a chance to fix the situation themselves.

It was only mapped in March, 2017.
Currently, only gyms in park-like areas mapped at some point between July and August, 2016 put out Ex Raids.
With recent updates this may change, but I wouldn't hold my breath until we see something concrete.
Also, full credit to /u/zjleblanc because I missed it in this case, there is a school ground marked over the entire park. Even if it was updated on Niantic's side, the school would block any potential nests and possibly even any Ex Raids.
I have an hypothesis. In Open Street Map the urban zone of Funchal isn't defined. So in any place of the city where you consult the OSM attributes, it only says is "Island" territory. So maybe this is the cause of having a water biome in the whole city. https://www.openstreetmap.org/query?lat=32.64985&lon=-16.90509
Letchworth is beautiful and huge. This photo shows the Upper Falls at the southern end (Openstreetmap link).
There are tons of hiking trails all along the length of the park, up and down the gorge. The eastern side is less developed and quieter. The western side has roads with scenic views, picnic and RV areas, Mt Morris Dam, the works. A lot of it was built up in the 30s as WPA projects.
Having insight on this:
Google is investing $2.5 billion in the state because they're essentially buying all of the available acreage at Mid America due to its proximity to shitloads of cheap electricity. This is obvious with a map and even a Popular Mechanics level of knowledge of datacenter operations.
Spawns are suppressed in areas mapped with certain tags including military bases, schools, airport runways...
Pokestops & gyms may still be present in some of these locations.
If you are in the red zone don't expect any spawns.
ITT: "Here's the laws in my country so this is why I'm right with my opinion."
So there's no reason to come to a full stop if everyone is stopped. They do have to take care not to run into people who didn't get the memo, though.
As to this situation: dickface BMW was speeding like a motherfucker, that's definitely above the 50 km/h legal at that intersection. Somebody can do a frame movement thingie, but I'm guessing it's roundabout seventy, as that's the cheap (<50€ for ≤ 20 km/h excess) speeding speed most speeders have in cities. I'm just fairly confused why the ambulance doesn't see the guy, because only a truck could be effectively blocking their view at the spot (ambo would be coming from the right border of that image, beamer from the opposing traffic lane); that would suggest ever harsher speeding or someone doing a bone-head move like pulling out of a traffic queue and hitting the throttle because the idiots are all standing.
and for context, here's the tunnel route under West 120th Street on OpenStreetMap:
The base of Monty Python watchtower is on the right-hand side of the video at ~1:08 and again when reversing at ~1:15.
The NY Times article only focuses on the "Jewtropolis" portion of it. Engadget and Ars have some of the other, less dog-whistle-y changes...
> One vandal with the username MedwedianPresident was recently blocked after committing a series of changes to roadway names and other map details in New York, including changing the name of the Manhattan Bridge to "Ku Klux Klan Highway," changing the name of Franklin Delano Roosevelt Drive to "Zionist Cannibal Drive," and renaming the Hugh Carey Tunnel (formerly the Brooklyn Battery Tunnel) to "Adolph Hitler Memorial Tunnel," among other things.
> An additional change that was caught re-labeled lower Manhattan as "“INSIDE JOB.”
In the end, it seems like some /pol/ edgelord did this.
Aller, c'est vendredi et c'est les vacances ~~pas pour moi, hélas~~.
Laisse moi te conter quelques petites fables parce que j'en ai gros.
C'est l'histoire d'une commune qui a un champ à côté de l'église. C'est du côté de la Baie des Veys, c'est un peu humide quoi, même qu'on peut dire que c'est une zone humide... Mais il y a ce terrain, et il appartient à la mairie et il faut en faire quelque chose. Mais un lotissement ça va pas passer. Donc, l'idée de génie, c'est de faire un Écoquartier, y'a éco dans le mot, ça fait vert, ça fait écologie. En fait c'est juste une arnaque, on va imperméabiliser, bétonner et on ne peut pas gérer les EP donc on balance ça ailleurs et paf paf t'as vu j't'embrouille.
Attend, j'en ai une autre :
Tu vois la côte du Calvados (le département) ? Ouais de la falaise principalement et des creux là où les rivières ont entaillés pour se rejeter, l'autre particularité c'est que vers l'ouest de Caen/Ouistreham c'est plus du calcaire mais des marnes : de la vase du jurassique qui est devenu "roche" et je suis généreux sur la définition. Or, là encore quelqu'un à eu l'idée géniale d'acheter 2 hectares à flanc de colline, 30% de pente, tranquilou bilou, vous me faites 25 lots là dessus c'est constructible. Mec... Ca fait des terrains de 200 m².
Outre les "promoteurs" qui ont des pinces à la place des mains, une grande question me vient :
Comment est ce qu'ils déterminent l'urbanisme exactement ?!
On va me répondre "le POS/PLU/PLUI", j'achète pas. Ca m'a plus l'air d'être un chimpanzé défoncé au plâtre qui étale son caca sur un plan de la commune par moment.
La topographie ça compte.
L'hydrographie ça compte.
Et pourquoi on continue de s'emmerder avec le modèle du pavillon pour tout le monde ?
Aller, des bises le Eiffel. Merci d'avoir lu..

> It's for the Google Maps team to have better data for their Maps app.
PSA: if you want to work for free improving a map, contribute to the OpenStreetMap project, which makes the mapping database freely available for everyone, instead of acting as slave-labor for a for-profit corporation (Google).
If you want maps with more detail for cycling I recommend Open Street Maps. It has a cycle view with trails and hidden paths that don't appear on Google. It's also kept more up to date. There are phone apps that use OSM like Komoot.
Unfortunately, it was tagged as a primary/high school rather than a university up until 4 days ago, so it will likely remain a dead zone until Niantic next updates their data to include the recent revision:
Around October they switched from using Google Maps for the in-game map to OpenStreetMap.
OSM can be edited by anyone, so sign up for an account and you can map your community.
It might take quite a while for it to show in game, as Niantic will have to create a new file for the entire world, which takes a lot of time and resources, so isn't done often, but the sooner you start, the better and more likely it'll be included in the next update.
Please map responsibly ;)

In Nederland staan alle wegen voor auto's allang op de kaart, maar voetpaden ontbreken op veel plekken nog. Denk bijvoorbeeld aan brandgangen tussen huizen (als je in de stad woont) en paden in bossen en parken. Hulp hierbij is erg welkom, en je hebt een goede reden om naar buiten te gaan!
Location on OpenStreetMap / Google Maps
Mon père m'a raconté un truc vraiment golri.
Un collègue gendarme prénommé Marc Sabot s'est mis dans un fossé en sortant du travail, juste devant la base aérienne.
Donc mon père a jugé bon d'acheter un panneau bleu de Rue, avec écrit dessus "Virage Marc Sabot" en son honneur.
Fast forward de 10 ans, il découvre que sur google map, quelqu'un a du passer en google car, voir le panneau de mon père, et du coup créer le maintenant légendaire Virage Marc Sabot.
Si vous passez dedans en google street view, vous ne trouverez plus le panneau (je ne sais pas si c'est le gendarme en colère ou quelqu'un d'autre qui l'a fait tomber). Et malheureusement, personne n'a désiré saisir l'information sur open street map.
Pour vous dire à quel point c'est facile de renommer une rue.
Das Bild kommt von den Verkehrsbetrieben Zürich. Links sehen wir ein recht markantes, hohes Gebäude. Kurze Suche zeigt: das ist der Prime Tower, höchstes Gebäude in Zürich. Wir sehen auch, dass es eine Brücke hochgeht. Der Turm liegt aber etwas vom Fluss entfernt, also muss die Brücke über was anderes gehen. Mit Blick auf die Karte stellen wir fest: da ist ein Bahnhof. Es gibt zwei größere Straßen, die auf den Turm führen, nur eine führt über eine Brücke und außerdem weiter gerade aus, also muss dass im Bild die Hardstrasse/Hardbrücke sein. Kurz mal mit Streetview gecheckt: Bingo.
Jetzt kenne ich mich mit OpenStreetMap nicht so aus, aber für mich sieht das so aus, als wäre das rechts der Fahrbahn ein Radfahrstreifen und keine Busspur: https://www.openstreetmap.org/#map=18/47.38138/8.51378&layers=C
Footage appears to be from the single-storey temporary container-based office block, located on on the east-side of the site.
Opening external shots are from the diagonal pipe-bridge at the north-west corner connecting the general assembly building to the utility building:
Biggest problem I see with e-bikes has to do with regional practicality. They're not allowed in bike lanes in Tulsa. Yet, one of our local cycleways has this bitch in it...seriously about 350m of ~25% grade. It's like climbing a wall on my Electra Amsterdam, I can barely do it. It's steeper than anything on a major cycleway in Portland by a lot.
Also on the westside, and one that you don't see coming until you make that last turn on to it is another basically wall climb. There's 3 or 4 signed rest area platforms on that short north-south segment. There's an abandoned dead-end segment of Quincy Avenue that starts at the same elevation as where it crosses parallel, with nothing but a lot for sale at the top, but I doubt it'll sell because that block is even with the cycleway adjacent to it at the dead end at the top. I honestly don't think my pickup truck can climb that unless I put several hundred pounds of bricks in the bed. Worst thing about that is you can't even bomb it, the yellow dot is a stop sign and even if that wasn't there, the sharp, semi-blind turn at the bottom just past the stop sign puts you on the brakes anyway.
Plus the wind and the hot weather. It's been in near 40°c (give or take a few degrees) for weeks now with no end in sight, I'm basically a wet salt-lick by the time I get home in the evenings. Definitely see the value in at least being able to maintain the same modest speed with less effort, too.
OpenStreetMap vermeldt daar in dat gebied een 'politiehondenoefenplaats'. Zou dat er iets mee te maken kunnen hebben?
Overigens is de situatie op OpenStreetMap niet compleet ingetekend: OpenStreetMap heeft witte sleuven in het (geïmporteerde) landgebruik, maar in die sleuven zijn geen paden ingetekend. Als je daar ter plekke gaat kijken, kun je dan meteen even controleren of dat die witte sleuven op OpenStreetMap paden zijn? :)

You should add any missing defibrillators in your area to OpenStreetMap (OSM), the open map the game is based on. OSM has a specific tag for defibrillators. Then they will be available for Niantic (or anyone else) to use (or not use) as they see fit.
Tu as openstreetmap. La recherche n'est pas aussi performante que google maps, mais c'est open data et probablement open source et la carte est assez précise et bien fichue. Si la fonction recherche est importante, il est toujours possible de trouver l'adresse sur un vrai moteur de recherche, et de l'utiliser dans openstreetmap pour voir où c'est et l'utiliser pour faire un trajet. Pour la recherche d'itinéraire entre deux points trouvés, en revanche, ça semble très bien fonctionner et je n'ai pas rencontré de problèmes alors que j'ai voyagé pas mal cette année - et pas qu'en ville.
Disponible sur mobile via un certain nombre d'applis , celle que j'utilise étant OSMand (ils ont merdé sur le nom, c'est une plaie à chercher). La version complète est payante sur android store, mais gratuite sur F-droid bien que pas complètement open source. À noter qu'il est possible de l'utiliser hors-ligne en téléchargeant les cartes régionales à l'avance. Je m'en suis souvent servi, pas parfait mais satisfaisant, même si je ne suis pas très exigeant.
D'autres applis utilisent les données openstreetmap, et OSMand malgré son nom n'est pas affiliée à openstreetmap, à ma connaissance (et openstreetmap n'a pas d'appli mobile officielle que je connaisse, bien que leur site semble fonctionner sur mobile).
I want to just point out an alternative to Google Maps that Duck Duck Go (which has become my search engine of choice) uses for their search results.
According to OpenStreetMap, that building is labeled "Rocket Motor Testing". I did find this project via Google that references an "on campus bunker".
So perhaps its used for Rocket Testing?
Very interesting. The OSM query uses date 2016-07-17 at time 00:00.

So I guess it was eligible all along. We just have a more refined guess on the map datetime used by Niantic. Tagging /u/Tntnnbltn just in case.

I'd be keen for you to prove that rather than make a baseless claim to save face, as far as I can see the OS maps and OpenStreetMaps show footpaths only around that area.
People who injure themselves up the Garth often require an air ambulance to lift them off the mountain. It's also an area with livestock freely roaming, vehicles would stress the sheep out.
The Garth is a beautiful area for families to enjoy safely, the footpaths from Gwaelod to the top are amazing. I wouldn't expect a motorbike to be riding along, and neither should people when it's a footpath.
Taking your bike up there for a picture is pathetic and irresponsible. There are plenty of metalled roads and green lanes local to the Garth you could get a similar picture from safely.
Riders like you give the scene a bad name.
A occhio ci sono solo le strade statali + una manciata di provinciali. Secondo me hanno preso la mappa di openstreetmap e hanno estratto le strade classificate come "trunk", "primary" e "secondary", lasciando fuori le altre (tertiary, residential, unclassified, track).
Entrate su Openstreetmap e zoomate su un qualunque paese: troverete una rete nettamente più fitta.
Madison, Wisconsin was originally platted on an isthmus between Lake Mendota and Lake Monona. Not to strange so much as interesting.
By far the larger of the two Kansas City's is in Missouri
Despite being a fairly old European city, much of Barcelona was built using a euclidean grid, something more commonly found in the new world.
Richtige Antwort. Zum Beispiel in der Radfahrkarte, ein auf osm.org vorhandener Layer, wird das dann schön auffällig gerendert. Siehe z. B. hier im Harz an der Eckertalsperre: https://www.openstreetmap.org/?mlat=51.8399&mlon=10.5764#map=16/51.8399/10.5764&layers=C
Again not absurd. I know the Selhurst location well - that depot is huge, has almost inaccessible segments (completely surrounded by third rail electrified lines) and is surrounded by near-impenetrable buddleia, ivy and similar.
I am probably a bad person, but on a train journey I have a tendency to look out the window and think "that looks like a good place to hide a body" 🤣

So this is a morning photo on an Eastern road segment (shadows to the left) going from Hawthorne to McGreggor.
Trying to apply the 24 hour rule is likely to prove wishful thinking because most redditors who kindly post photos of stages (going on a horizontal low-level trajectory) won't know they're supposed to await the next day before publishing.
There is a great "business as usual" feel to this photo, as fabrication and testing move forwards during a temporary pause to launching.
>«On a essayé d’y tourner un reportage ce matin. Notre équipe a été attaquée et caillassée par des voyous qui ont volé notre caméra dans cette zone de non-droit d’un quartier qui a pourtant un joli nom, Le Clos des roses» a déclaré le présentateur du JT avant de diffuser une courte interview du patron des HLM. Ce dernier a confirmé l’existence de cet «État de non-droit absolu» contrôlé par «des prédateurs dont la détermination est proportionnelle à la somme d’argent colossale qu’ils engrangent chaque mois». Jean-Pierre Pernaut a conclu en rassurant sur l’état des journalistes agressés qui ne sont pas blessés.
En fait c'est vraiment les trois immeubles dont ils parlent qui sont contrôlés par des dealeurs. Ici sur la carte. C'est plus un squat finalement.
Le problème est évidemment très grave mais particulièrement localisé, le reste du quartier est plutôt tranquille. J'y passais tous les jours pendant 4 ans et un certains nombre de mes ami(e)s y ont vécu sans aucun problème. C'est juste assez étrange comme situation dans une petit ville bourgeoise comme Compiègne (et malheureux pour les journalistes, ça va sans dire).
You are in luck, matey.
My mate Ivan has offered to drive you to the gates of the MCG.
There is one slight problem though - you'd need to get to Goulburn first, and that is a little over half way.
There will be a few administrative details to take care of once you got to Goulburn, but they shouldn't be an issue.
I am always blown away, when someone maps his entire city nearly alone in the finest detail. All those buildings, I would have given up long ago. If you want to speed up your building drawing process, you should switch to JOSM editor. First it seems more complicated but after some minutes you will ask yourself why you didn't used it all the time before.
I would add some landuses like residential and industrial now. Also some POI, like churches, shops and bigger industrial areas would be nice.
For example here and here I asked myself what kind of building has such a strange shape. Also the ruins here are interesting if they still exist.
Open street map itself has directions and embedable maps
Directions - https://www.openstreetmap.org/directions?engine=fossgis_osrm_car&route=40.7309%2C-73.9872%3B27.7568%2C-81.4640#map=6/34.548/-77.837
And you can get embed stuff on the sharing menu on the right
Interestingly, OpenStreetMap already shows East Link. It also shows both the Viaduct and the tunnel.
Where the fuck is the pedestrian interconnectivity? Enjoy your 20-minute drive to buy bread. /r/urbanhell
Edit: ok, I retract my statement, having checked OSM you actually don't have to go as far as I thought around the circle for pedestrian and cyclist shortcuts. That's Europe vs. the USA for you, and makes this much less like being trapped in a desert of suburbia.
Still, I'm not convinced that in practice this is a good design for residents and visitors. You wouldn't see the Netherlands putting "But it looks good on paper" over everyday usability
The gym appears to be in an area mapped as leisure=garden - https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/194511221/history . It's been mapped in some form or another on OSM since 2012, well before the (invisible) EX raid map was sourced.
Gardens are one of the many EX eligible areas that don't render as dark green in Go at this time.
If you want to fix it, you need to go to each island that you're worried about and make them all inner borders of the "bay". I did two quickly here:
Looks like they're just pulling their data from OpenStreetMap. So its all just crowdsource-edited stuff. Those tags for the coming SWL attractions have been in there for a while, actually.
I used Maperitive to download and export OpenStreetMap data as an SVG file. Then I hid all unneeded layers in Adobe Illustrator and painted the roads black. That's it :)
Mais do que isso: o Jardim da Estrela é a 800m da Assembleia da República e ela, obviamente, é deputada...
I would expect there is something at the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial in Judiciary Square.
It’s a beautiful memorial. And peaceful there at night.
The map in flight simulator is generated using crowdsourced map data from the OpenStreetMap project. Have drawn many of the buildings myself ;)
I used to live not far from City Road, not aware of any Mosques nearby (but then I'm not religious in anyway).
The only mosque I know of is Medina Mosque, their website is Sheffield Islamic Centre Madina Masjid Trust - Home who may be worth contacting to see if they know of anywhere more local to where you will be living.
Good luck with the move and hope you enjoy the city.
That should be B9/B327, see openstreetmap.
The building in the picture is Parkstraße 22 and apparently in use for sports purposes, as this Facebook posts invites refugees to gather there for sports

See Rotterdam harbour ? It hosts gigantic tanks of petroleum products and other chemicals. How do they make it fool-proof ?
The Netherlands already has one nuclear powerplant, and it is in a rather densely populated region.
France currently has 58 nuclear reactors. A couple of years ago they passed the 1,000 years mark : a combined total of one thousand years in operation without a single fatality.
A nuclear reactor is not an atomic bomb waiting to explode. Each plant has hundred of workers, none of them being specialy suicidal.
The Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster prompted the evacuation of 170,000 people but resulted in only one fatality.
>Have they found a way to make it fool-proof
The first step is of course not to allow fools anywhere in the perimeter ;-) In France, a specialized section of the Gendarmerie sees to this.
Inside the perimeter, everything is designed with safety-first as paramount. Workers are trained for every sort of contingency, including on life-size simulators etc ...
>or is there still risk associated with it.
Yes of course, there is risk. Now, we should define "risk", and compare it with the risks we routinely take in daily life. Ever rode in an automobile ?
Bonus track : this lovely pastoral scene in Switzerland ;-)
Last night before our monthly social meet-up I spent just under an hour updating shops, cafes and bars in the middle of Nottingham. Even though we are now doing this regularly there were getting on for 20 updates. The funny one was a place called DNA Art Space. We'd already mapped it 2 months ago, but I looked more closely in the window and realised it was a hairdresser not an art gallery. Shops which became empty even a few weeks ago have already got new tenants, which was not happening 5 years ago. I also added a few solar-powered rubbish bins, and found a new open-air bar called the Secret Garden.
Walking back from the pub we also did some more updates because I didn't have time beforehand. The shops along here were first mapped back in 2011, and the edit history of many of them is often a list of people who come to the pub from time-to-time (here's one https://www.openstreetmap.org/node/2244595796/history).
We don't yet have a systematic approach, but, if we did, we can probably cover the city centre twice a year with 2-3 surveyors (we have 4 suitable meetings from April to September; the other 2 are in Derby where we're doing similar things).
Did you know that there is one in many countries? Fun to make people feel bad ;) For instance in Sweden there is an islet Bergen in lake Hjälmaren. (osm).
I tend to point to an actual village in The Netherlands instead, unless people specify they mean Norway. (osm).
I've been learning to make maps for fun over the last year, and decided to try Waterford as my latest. I made this using OpenStreetMap® data and did the colour adjustment in QGIS and Photoshop.
Do you mean the visual map that you see your trainer walking around on in-game? If so, learning how to edit Open Street Map and then making relevant and correct changes is the way to go.
Keep in mind that Niantic hasn't updated the visual game map since the 25th of January 2018, so you might not see the results of any changes you make in a timely manner, if at all while you're still actively playing.
At first glance I thought it was a paintball range to be honest, but after looking I believe that /u/bluemandan is correct, I am pretty sure it's a bomb test range.
I took the coordinates onto OpenStreetMaps thinking that there may be some other information and found this here. From that information I was able to look up "Carson Sink Nevada" on google, which took me to this wikipedia article which mentions the Bravo-20 Live Bombing area. I am assuming that the big red square B-20 on the OSM Map is probably that. This makes sense to me as the structures that are all over that place look a lot like quickly built objects for the sake of testing explosives/weapons fire.
If you were feeling brave the other option could have been to call up the Humboldt State Wildlife Management Area and asked if they know anything about the area south of there. Of course I didn't do this so I can't blame somebody else for not doing it as well. I hate talking to people on the phone, especially if the question could be perceived as weird.
Of course it's possible that there is a government effort to cover up their alien communications by putting false information on wikipedia, with the hope that I will come along and further spread the misinformation...but it honestly looks like a weapons test site.
Unless the Flensburg Fjord doesn't count as a coast west of Holnis, it does. Also, being at the Danish border doesn't exclude having a coastline.
Are these useful beyond in a jokey sense? Sounds like a lot of work for a product whose value is going to be extremely arguable.
If it does get off the ground, having it be crowdsourced and in the cloud linked to, e.g., OSM, is probably the best way to do it.
I've been mapping roads and natural features of Ba Ria Vung Tau province (my home province), Vietnam for 6 months. The swamplands shown in this map lies of the northern end of my hometown (Vung Tau) used be occupied by green vast mangrove trees. Now not anymore, as prawn / shrimp farms have gradually replaced the trees. Mapping thus becomes more difficult, esp when drawing all those hundreds of squares full of water.
I hate it as these blue shrimp farms take a lot more time than forests.
Another task I have been doing is adding tiny rural roads in the remote, inland areas of this province. These public roads are often well paved and maintained (we're not a poor province after all), but they are always curved and sometimes blurred by trees planted in surrounding houses.
Some roads go through rubber plantations and serve as tertiaries connecting villages and hamlets. It's always very difficult to map and determine which of these plantation-roads are public and which are farm roads only.
Why did I map?
Because alot of Vietnam-based mappers have worked on the cities only. Not much has been done to complete the provinces and provincial towns. Ba Ria Vung Tau is my home province and I have a passion to "make it great (again)."
No kidding. It really can take time ;) A month ago I went to get a GPS trace to correct a newcomer's edit.
I went through the track in scorching sun and it was so dusty I had to clean my shoes afterwards >.< But it was worth it as I added even more roads and found some new POIs.
Suburban villages develop so quickly in Poland that it's sometimes very hard for OSM to keep up.
Techniquement il y en a un à Strasbourg (sur la carte)
Ouais, ou alors que ta source est moisie :-)
Un article de la wikipedia FR va recencer plus de lieux français, c'est normal.
Mais que l'Allemagne de l'Est ait eu moins de 14 lieux nommés d'après Lénine, ça me semble pas crédible.
Allez, rien que 3 qui ne sont pas dans la liste:
OpenStreetMap is truly free and open. You can contribute a considerable detailed amount to improve the maps. The truly free part comes in where you can actually download and use the OSM data as you please. It sounds like you may enjoy the active contribution piece, it totally could be worth a try to help out OSM. At all levels of detail you can go in and improve what's there, you could even add whole roads or structures.
Google's free isn't free, it's closed source and the data isn't there to use and edit. It's doesn't cost a dollar amount but you shell it out with all the background data and data mining google scrapes from you. You can really dive and say you were a part of OSM and you know the only data they get is the data you give them vs google's ecosystem of adds and data mining.
I like google maps and use it but the reason I went on about OSM is the contribution piece, you may get better feels playing in that sandbox.
Hello everyone, I wrote about this app that I had developed here. Here is the reddit version if you prefer that.
This app is designed to be really efficient when it comes to mapping housenumbers. You can read more about it on the diary entry I have linked above.
If you want to download it, click on "Releases" on the github page, and then under the latest release click on "assets" and download the APK.

Die Pendler wohnen außerhalb, haben dort den Vorteil geringer Wohnkosten und höherer Lebensqualität, wollen aber gleichzeitig die Vorteile der Stadt nutzen und verursachen dabei externe Kosten für die Stadtbewohner. Solch parasitäres Verhalten abzustellen ist die Aufgabe der Verkehrspolitik.
I found out what is is. It turns out it actually is an airstrip for planes. I found it after checking a few map services. It's marked as an airport on OpenStreetMaps.
If you zoom out, you'll see the airport/airstrip symbol. I still don't have a clue what the buildings/structures are for.
I'd be curious as to if the boundaries of this relation: https://www.openstreetmap.org/relation/1934517 match the observable boundaries of the mega nest?
I'm not aware of anyone who has reported "natural=valley" as a nesting tag in the past but it wouldn't be a massive shock if it was. The date of the tag being added to the relation checks out for the recent OSM update and many nests are caused by natural=X tags (Long Island was caused by "natural=scrub", Berlin is caused by a series of areas tagged with "natural=plateau").
Yes, they are collecting data. You should read /r/theprivacymachine's What is Metadata and why is it as Important as the Data Itself.
Use https://www.openstreetmap.org instead.
It didn't feel right as city lights, so I reverse searched the image: they are OpenStreetMap nodes, so basically points of interest and intersections, but it also correlates to the local activity of the openstreetmap community.

True, but Open Maps is an alternative, not nearly as good of course, but there are alternatives. There's Open Street Maps, and the good old physical map, which I generally use.
Pro tip - you can create account on OpenStreetMap and manually edit your neighborhood, if there are any missing houses, roads, streets, etc. You can help make OpenStreetMap better!
Google Maps should be considered evil because Google accepts user contributions/corrections, but does not make them freely available to the public in return. People should support OpenStreetMap instead.
It happenned today in lille, france.
Here's an article with other pictures from the same demonstration and more info.
It's been a while since I've used OSM! Here's a link to this place, if anyone wants to check my work or just look closer. I'm not sure why these gardens hadn't been done already- perhaps better imagery was only recently released.
I've mapped a few before, I just applied all the tags I could find: https://www.openstreetmap.org/node/5516568963
I documented it on the wiki, just for you: https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:amenity%3Dbinoculars
For reference: https://www.openstreetmap.org/changeset/63717285
OP, don't waste your time to argue with a person out of their mind.
Sadly anyone mapping for a while will get to experience such folks. You essentially have to be thick-skinned and diligently document everything to report to the DWG.
I see the section you are talking about now.
How recently did you see it disappear?
I believe this is the section you are talking about. https://www.openstreetmap.org/relation/2100172#map=10/48.6736/-124.8220
The reason you are having trouble seeing it is because the ID editor (Browser editor) does not handle multipolygons that well.
As best I can tell it is still there it just appears that the render has stopped rendering it. I believe this is because 8 months ago kartler175 changed the multipolygon relation from multipolygon to boundary. This seems to be incorrect and would lead to the rendering issue.
You should not map for the render, but in this case I believe the relation type boundary is being used incorrectly because that type of relation is normally used for administrative boundaries. normally multipolygon is used. Also all the other sections of this national park reserve use the relation type multipolygon. So I am going to go ahead and change it back to multipolygon. This should fix your rendering issue. Since this is such a large area give the Render at least a few days to catch out at the farther out zoom levels.
You can also visit Krumme Straße at the corner of Schillerstraße in Charlottenburg, close to Deutsche Oper, where Benno Ohnesorg was shot during the Shah protests (there is a plaque) or go to Rudi Dutschke Straße, corner Axel Springer Straße and be amused by the fact that Rudi Dutschke Straße has the right of way over Axel Springer Straße (the intersection is controlled by traffic lights but in case they fail the regular signs are to be obeyed).
FWIW, most of the 46er peaks have partially or completely wooded summits.
Mount Colden's summit is partially wooded and the most unobstructed view is towards the west. However, it's a grand, 180-degree view from Flowed Lands and Marshall in the southwest to Cascade and Big Slide in the northeast. It's a 'front-row seat' for the MacIntyre Range and not a view to be missed.
If you stand on its summit marker (a small triangle carved in the rock and circumscribing a drill-hole that once held a survey bolt), you get a decent view of Marcy in the east. Of course, you'll get an unobstructed view of Marcy (and more) near Colden's northern "false summit" where the L. Morgan Porter Trail turns from west to southwest.
