Print b/w maps with inkatlas [1] in an excellent quality



OpenStreetMap (Foundation)

Did you know…

  • … Uh, do you still remember … FOSM, the CC-BY-SA-Fork of OpenStreetMap from the year 2012, when OpenStreetMap changed the license? Congratulations FOSM for the first known use of their data. (via @Anonymaps)
  • Maptime, an idea that was created by Stamen Design in San Francisco now runs as MaptimeBER in Berlin as well.


  • The videos of the presentations from the “State of the Map” conference in Buenos Aires are available. If you don’t have Flash, you need to download the videos to view them. We find that rather irritating!

Humanitarian OSM


  • [1] inkatlas.com (currently in beta) generates high-quality b/w PDF documents for predefined areas in OSM – ideal for printing.
  • As he does every year, Jan Tappenbeck (User Lübeck) has launched his XMAS map, with Christmas markets and Christmas trees in the public domain. (via talk-de)





  • Michal Migurski reports on the visualisation of the Open-Addresses project, whose goal it is to collect as many open-data address lists as possible (such lists are undesirable in OSM as mass imports).
  • An example of how not to work with professionals 😉 – producing a mouse pad with a world map and forgetting New Zealand! (ESRI (US software developer of geographic information systems, turnover 794 million USD) (via @Anonymaps)
