- OSMTime - Mapping missing roads using ImproveOSM
In our next meetup we will improve the OpenStreetMap by adding the missing roads from the Improve OSM tool. ImproveOSM is a set of tools that highlights mapping tasks for contributing to OSM in a meaningful way. By using ImproveOSM you can add missing roads, parking spots, one-way attributes and turn restriction to the map. The tool identified around[masked] cases when a road/part of a road is missing from the map. Agenda: · Socialize with other mappers & pizza · ImproveOSM tool short presentation · Mapping using ImproveOSM tools (iD/JOSM plugin) Requirements: • As the meeting will be focused mostly on editing, please bring a laptop and a charger • (optional) JOSM (https://josm.openstreetmap.de/) installed on your laptop If you are interested in the ImproveOSM tools, check out the following: · https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/JOSM/Plugins/ImproveOsm · https://improveosm.org/#background=Bing&map=2.00/0.0/0.0 · http://blog.improve-osm.org/en/2016/12/collaboration-brings-nearly-1-million-missing-roads-to-improveosm/ · http://blog.improve-osm.org/en/2016/11/improve-osm-now-based-on-id/ · http://blog.improve-osm.org/en/2016/05/updates-to-improveosm-josm-plugin-for-better-usability/ · http://blog.improve-osm.org/en/2016/12/usage-tips-on-the-new-improve-osm/ · http://blog.improve-osm.org/en/2016/04/improve-osm-adds-missing-roads-in-guatemala/
- OSMTime - Zalau remote mapping
Details: Our next Meetup will be all about “remote” mapping. Armed with satellite imagery and OpenStreetCam photos and detections we will improve the map of Zalau: streets, parks, buildings, turn restrictions, traffic lights, speed limits, lane count and more. Horea Meleg will be our guest speaker for the evening – he will talk about how to improve remotely OpenStreetMap. More details regarding the event can be found at: https://docs.google.com/document/d/19ZiSpAOwJE7PFj9Q3B_UHdg0AjZEKfVYbW5AbPGyGFU/edit .

- OSMTime - Finding and fixing invalid turn restrictions
Turn right or turn left? This is one the questions that might appear when you arrive with your car in an intersection. At this point, a turn restriction at the right moment could enhance your navigation experience. If we want the routing software to work well, we must make sure that the map features specific to routing such as turn restrictions are correctly added to OSM. We check the quality of the turn restrictions through a Quality Assurance process using multiple tools. During the presentation you will learn common problems of turn restrictions and how can they be identified using pgAdmin and Overpass. Requirements: • As the event will be focused on editing, please bring a laptop and charger • PostgreSQL installed on your laptop • (optional) JOSM installed on your laptop
- OSMTime – Disaster mapping
Our next meetup will focus on improving the OpenStreetMap by helping the Humanitarian (HOT) disaster mapping efforts. When a disaster or political crisis happens, HOT leaps into action to map the affected area with a global network of volunteers. Disaster respondents, such as the Red Cross and Doctors without Borders, are using these detailed maps in the response to these crises. There are several ongoing mapping projects: 1. Community Mapping in North Uganda : https://www.hotosm.org/updates/2018-01-24_community_mapping_in_north_uganda_intrepid_refugees_and_host_community_compare 2. Malaria Elimination Campaign: https://www.hotosm.org/projects/malaria_elimination_campaign Requirements: • As the event will be focused exclusively on editing, please bring a laptop and charger • (optional) JOSM installed on your laptop.
- OSMTime - Workshop EO Clim Lab Maps and Travel
ARIES Transilvania, Agenția Spațială Europeană împreună cu Open Street Map Cluj și Telenav Europe organizează evenimentul Maps&Travel. Agenția Spațială Europeană pune la dispoziția participanților baze de date cu imagini colectate de sateliții agenției (Earth Observation Data) prin intermendiul platformei EO ClimLab. Scopul evenimentului este de a identifica idei de utilizare a bazei de date cu imagini satelitare în scopul îmbunătățirii calității informațiilor din Open Street Map ca de exemplu, crearea de pluginuri JOSM, folosirea și recunoașterea imaginilor în identificarea noilor căi terestre sau găsirea altor moduri de folosire a datelor oferite pe platformă. Cele mai reușite idei vor fi premiate de către ARIES Transilvania. Formularul de înregistrare: https://goo.gl/forms/wfZcYq0PA28ucDzf1 Programul evenimentului: 9:30 - 10:00 Înregistrarea 10:00 - 11:00 Workshop - Utilizarea imaginilor satelitare (Earth Observation Data) ale Agentiei Spatiale Europene 11:00 - 11:30 Prezentarea ideilor în primă fază 11:30 - 12:30 Work in progress.

- OSMTime – Mapping lanes in OSM
Our next meetup will focus on improving the OpenStreetMap by editing lane and turn lane features. In the context of traffic control, a lane is part of a roadway (carriageway (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carriageway)) that is designated for use by a single line of vehicles, to control and guide drivers and reduce traffic conflicts. Rat Dioszegi Lorand will be our guest speaker for the evening – he will talk about how to edit lane and turn lane features in OpenStreetMap. Requirements: · As the event will be focused on editing, please bring a laptop and charger · (optional) JOSM installed on your laptop You can read more about the subject at: · https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lane · http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:lanes · http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:turn#Turning_indications_per_lane (http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:turn) · http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Lanes · https://blog.mapbox.com/mapping-turn-lanes-in-openstreetmap-5da9bf764f0d · https://github.com/JOSM/turnlanes-tagging For questions, you can reach the organizers: Bea -[masked]
- Mapping party
Mapping parties are events where anyone can come and participate in the OpenStreetMap project. OpenStreetMap is a free, open source map that can be contributed, edited and used by anyone anywhere. Mapping parties are social events, where experienced and new mappers can meet to share and learn more about the project.

Disaster respondents, such as the Red Cross and Doctors without Borders, are using these detailed maps in the response to these crises. This week has seen disasters and destruction on an unprecedented scale, and the HOT Community has activated to respond: Hurricane Irma: · It is the largest Hurricane ever recorded, and has torn death and destruction through the Caribbean. Destruction on some islands is estimated at 95%, affecting the lives of 1.2 million so far, and on track to cause severe destruction across the entire Florida State, where mass evacuation is currently underway. · Mapping projects: http://tasks.hotosm.org/?sort_by=priority&direction=asc&search=Hurricane+Irma Mexico Earthquake · The strongest earthquake for a century struck Mexico this morning, 8th September. At least 58 people have died, 5,000 homes completely destroyed, and many more damaged and vulnerable. · Mapping projects: http://tasks.hotosm.org/?sort_by=priority&direction=asc&search=Mexican+Earthquake Bangladesh Floods · South Asia has been affected by extreme floods, with over 40 million people affected across Bangladesh, India, and Nepal. Many of these places have remained submerged under water since the floods began in mid-August. HOT has activated in Bangladesh, where 100,000 homes have been destroyed and risk of fatal diseases like cholera are very high. · Mapping projects: http://tasks.hotosm.org/?sort_by=priority&direction=asc&search=Bangladesh+Floods Requirements: • As the event will be focused exclusively on editing, please bring a laptop and charger • (optional) JOSM installed on your laptop.
