OpenAddress-Data in Europa

State of the OpenAddress data coverage in Europe 1 | © Michal Migurski © Mapbox © OpenStreetMap Contributors ODbL


  • Dieterdreist wrote a proposal on aeroway=spaceport. The voting is open until May 30th.
  • Yo paseopor calls to use the traffic sign recognition of Mapillary in OSM as nodes to capture traffic signs.
  • On the tagging mailing list, Dave F wonders about the existence of toilets:wheelchair and wheelchair_toilet in the iD editor. After some discussion, he gets the information that a pre-selection for free texts information comes from Taginfo and thus can contain typos.


  • User Hakuch published WikiRever, a tool that looks up who inserted or deleted a specific phrase from an OpenStreetMap Wiki page. He claims that it is easier to use than Wikiblame. (automatic translation)
  • The American Red Cross announces a job as “American Red Cross GIS Analyst” in Bogota, Colombia.

OpenStreetMap Foundation

  • OSM France has applied for recognition as a regional representative of the OSM Foundation.


  • The Dresden OSM-Community is planning an OSM Summer camp on a weekend in August or September and is seeking expressions of interest (DE) before booking the venue.

Humanitarian OSM

  • Geoffrey Kateregga writes in the HOT blog about the malaria elimination mapping campaign, in which youth mappers from five universities in Uganda mapped 800,000 buildings. The three most active users got a scholarship to the SotM Africa.
  • The Jakarta Post reported on the collaboration of several humanitarian organisations to support disability and the poor in Indonesia.
  • Rebecca Firth searches on the HOT mailing list for experienced mappers to validate tasks in the District of Salima, Malawi.
  • C J Hendrix of the Centre for Humanitarian Data reported on the new automatic OSM exports for the HDX (Humanitarian Data Exchange), which were created in cooperation with HOT.


  • Are you searching for geolocations of Wikipedia articles on the OSM map? Alex-7 created a web app.
  • Black is beautiful: A bug in the latest carto style caused waterways with intermittent=yes to be rendered in black instead of dashed blue. The issue has been solved.


  • Via Staziun is a project of the SBB and the Foundation My Handicap with the aim “to facilitate orientation at train stations: with current photos and information from all Swiss railway stations, collected and shared by other travellers”. The pictures are available in Mapillary but all other information is not available under a free and open license.

Open Data

  • [1] Michal Migurski presents the OpenAdresses project on the Mapbox blog and garnishes it with some nice statistics.



  • The Mapbox Mobile SDK can be enhanced by plugins.
  • Christoph Lingg asked whether there is an easier-to-use OSM data format other than PBF. He would prefer the data in GeoJSON. Jochen Topf explained in detail where the problems are and suggested his export-branch of osmium which can export to GeoJSON.
