haven't seen any talk about OpenStreetMap on here. any other users/contributors?
I like to contribute using StreetComplete when I'm on walks and JOSM when I'm at home and bored
I had no idea about StreetComplete, it sounds pretty cool. I'm just an user, I sometimes use WaymarkedTrails to find hiking trails and OpenRouteService service to estimate how much I have walked (I wish there was some site especially for this and not for planning, and without needing to track myself). I have OsmAnd+ on my phone but I very rarely use it and even then just as a replacement for paper maps. I did play with the Overpass query thing once and it was pretty cool tho.
hooray, another user
yeah StreetComplete can be quite fun. clearing the entire area around where you live of tasks gives deep satisfaction. you can also leave notes for other mappers, particularly people who use JOSM in case there are errors that can't be easily fixed on your phone
if you hike a lot, consider installing Vespucci and record + upload GPS tracks. this is a great help when drawing trails
StreetComplete is great if you don't have the ability/time to manually edit the maps (I don't). I have a few hundred edits from there. I also checked the main site and there's a couple of mappers in my area. It's cool!
you should try and meet up with them. we did a mapping pub crawl where I live. great fun
just got back from StreetCompleting some more. how're you other OSM anons doing? :3
wow, wholesome open source panopticon chungus
none of this datamining serves anyone except for, you know, dataminers
>>12978>mapping things that can be seen with the naked eye by everyone is a panopticon
>>12980>looking at a street and mapping it is datamining
uygha you stupid lmao>implying there aren't actually beneficial applications using this data
Protip: Don't map your own house without mapping so many random areas. Users can see where you map and when you did it to find where you live.
Did this ever happen to anyone?
I use my amateur radio callsign when mapping, which is easily resolved to my name and address as per regulations
