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

- The OSMF board is aware about the “Google awarded patent on automatic correction of road geometry from imagery“.
- The new version of the OSM editor iD enables “Simple Editing for Turn Restrictions in OSM“.
- And again a neat usage of OSM data: “Pints in the Sun – Find a pub near you that won’t be in the shade“.
- “Really important summary about the issues of changing OSM tags …” via SK53onOSM. Also, other active osm-carto work: Unifying landuse lightness or Working on rendering of place tags when on areas.
- “Welcome to OpenStreetMap Telangana!” by Abhishek Nagaraj.

After nearly 4 years and almost 100 Weekly OSM Summary posts, we would like to announce our retirement as editors from this service. Thank you for all your suggestions and submissions to the blog over the years! We hope that other volunteers will be willing to continue this service for the OSM community in the near future. We will officially end our endeavor with the 100th Weekly OSM Summary in a few weeks. This announcement does not imply that we will stop contributing to the OSM project or that we won’t conduct other data analyses in the future. Feel free to check out Pascal’s blog at neis-one.org in the future for any updates. Thanks. Pascal and Dennis
