July 11th, 2011 – July 24, 2011

A summary of all the things happening in the OpenStreetMap world.

  • The OpenStreetMap Project will celebrate its 7th anniversary in August 2011. There are several parties planed all around the world.
  • The State of the Map Europe (SotM-EU) conference is over and had more than 200 attendees from about 26 countries. You can find the videos of the talks and slides here.
  • The License Working Group released recommendations for „reconciling the data touched by users who have explicitly declined CT/ODbL“. Read it here.
  • Pascal Neis created a website where you can „fight“ against other OSM contributors: „OSMFight“. You can read more about it in his blog post.
  • Dennis Zielstra compared „Free versus Proprietary“ geodata in Florida. The complete analysis is available here.
  • There is an interesting discussion at the OSM mailing list about „Commenting and thumbs up/down feature for changesets“. Read the thread here.
  • A new map with “Marked Cycling Routes around the World” is online. It is available as an overlay and you can find it here.
  • The Humanitarian OSM was in Indonesia and reports about their activities in a blog post. Further they are searching for writing volunteers and plan to organize regular IRC “HOT Chats”.
  • CycleStreets, providing OSM cycle routing for the UK, is now available on Android.

    Mapbuilder doesn’t really appear to be using OSM data. Try zooming in on individual countries/cities and you’ll see the OSM copyright notice dissappear.
