Improve NYC streets and bike lanes, second meeting

  • September 10, 2014 · 7:00 PM

We'll meet to talk about progress on the bike lanes and roads cleanup using the City's data. By this time, the latest and greatest data should be available for us to use. Come talk about how the data is going to get into Maproulette and how we should get others involved in taking part in the Maproulette challenges once they're there.

Find more details on the OSM wiki.

    Thanks to everyone who made it out Wednesday evening. Here's a quick recap:

    * Final data is in DoITT's hands, is undergoing one more QA pass, and should be available in a week or so.

    * We decided to continue strategizing on the OSM wiki to hammer out OSM tags for NYC bike lanes and how the problems will be split into individual challenges. That page is here:,_New_York/Bike_Lanes_and_Roads_Cleanup

    * We decided that Maptime NYC ( would be a good venue to look over one of the challenges. Richard volunteered to help get the data into a PostGIS database on AWS for participants to experiment with.

      Brigitte, just seeing this! We were finished by around 8pm, so we were almost certainly gone by the time you got there. Sorry we didn't keep a closer eye on this at the time!

    Not precisely on the mark, but I'm wondering: Is there a mashup of the Alternate-Side street cleaning and garbage pickup schedule.

      Hey Tom - I used to like primospot but they are defunct. SmoothParking is decent. NYCDOT has more a parking sign app too http://www.nycdot.inf...­. Note: that neither are fully accurate as they don't seem to account for any sort of "temporary" changes to the parking regulations; like the substantial changes to parking regulations all along/nearby 2nd Ave for the subway construction.
