- Anne-Karoline Distel is still ‘obsessing‘ about crannógs. She has published the first two of a planned five-part video series on how to map crannógs.
- watmildon outlined the technique they use to find and fix instances where
addr:housenumberhave been incorrectly tagged as
- OSM user blkatbyhh shared a tutorial on how to semi-automatically map landuse features from satellite imagery by using Fiji, which is image recognition software.

- LySioS showed the increase in users of Mastodon. He also points out the instance administered by Amanda McCann. Amanda is looking for a logo for this instance.
- The Engineering Working Group has made a call for proposals for a project to add the ability to mute users on the openstreetmap.org website. This would let OSM contributors who receive unwanted messages in their openstreetmap.org message inbox to mute (ignore) private messages from another contributor. This subject was also discussed on GitHub.
- Eligible members of the OpenStreetMap Foundation (OSMF) should receive, on Saturday 3 December, instructions on how to vote to elect four new board members via their registered OSMF email. They can start voting on
Saturday 3 December after 16:00 UTC. Voting will end on Saturday 10 December at 16:00 UTC when the Annual General Meeting will start in the IRC chatroom #osmf-gm on the IRC network irc.oftc.net.As we reported last week, the OSM wiki has more information and it is also possible to read the candidates’ answers to official questions and their manifestos.
- The ‘Risk of hostile takeover of the OpenStreetMap Foundation’ was the only discussion last week on osmf-talk for the current Board election (with four seats available this year and 11 candidates, some with corporate affiliations). OSMF is the legal owner of the OSM database and hardware. Brian Sperlongano started the discussion by asking Roland Olbricht to clarify a post on the talk-de discussion list where he perceived Roland to favour German over US candidates. Opinions varied widely, others focusing discussion on the risk of a hostile takeover.
- Christoph Hormann wrote, in his blog, about his observations on the past year regarding the OSMF. Among many other facts, he observes an increasing commercialisation of OSMF policy and the increasing dominance of lobbyists in OSMF policy advice.
- The 30DayMapChallenge 2022 on Twitter and Mastodon continued. It is not possible to adequately acknowledge the multitude of outstanding works. The selection we make is purely random and not an evaluation. Please explore the works yourself. franceinfo reported ► on how this challenge, started by a Finnish geographer in 2019, has become a worldwide event.
