Featured image proposals
Welcome to Featured image proposals.
Great photos of OpenStreetMap community, maps, or artwork posted here stand a good chance of being made Featured images, giving your picture a week of infamy on the main page of the OpenStreetMap Wiki, plus eternal fame in the archives.

- Parked image proposals. Proposals which didn't go anywhere (but may still be rescued back onto this page)
Global Noise Pollution Map
Visualization of noise pollution for the entire world based on top of OSM data. Link: http://lukasmartinelli.ch/gis/2016/04/03/openstreetmap-noise-pollution-map.html Wille (talk)----
Unmapped towns in Brazil
- This is clever but sort of negative as an outward-facing promotional image of OSM. Showing stuff we don't have mapped yet. Not sure if that matters much -- Harry Wood (talk) 21:32, 8 May 2016 (UTC)
- My opinion is that it is smart from us to show that we know where our data is defective and that we are working on it to make it better. That image may also give incentive to contributors to work a bit more on these areas.
- We should not be afraid to say that we are not providinc a complete covergage, and the purpose of this wiki is to help improve it.
- See also the MissingMaps and HotOSM projects that also demonstrate such needs for further work. It's good to know that more data is needed there, as there's a legitimate demand for it. — Verdy_p (talk) 08:41, 9 May 2016 (UTC)

Fort McMurray Map contribution
People on the talk-ca came together and helped contribute the Fort McMurray mapping data after the wildfire has ravaged the town. In a matter of days 327 changesets were created with 44,714 objects changed

- So that's a screenshot of this: http://resultmaps.neis-one.org/osm-changesets?comment=osmcanada-FortMc#11/56.7348/-111.3976
- There's a bunch more editing which didn't have that 'osmcanada-FortMc' changeset comment (I even did a bit of mapping myself as it was hitting the news in the UK)
- It's a shame there's a bunch of newly mapped forest which should be visible on that screenshot, but we'll have to wait for a re-render of zoom 12.
- This is the slightly strange thing about this mapping response. In order to better show the area where forest has been destroyed, we need to add in all the missing forest! And if course it's working around an ugly shard of forest data which was already imported on the Southwest side of the city (particularly ugly at this zoom 11/12)
- I like the idea of a featured image on this very topical in-the-news topic, but I wonder if there's a better way we could show it an image.

OpenStreetMap in Cuba Conference
Photos CC licensed in https://www.flickr.com/photos/willemarcel/albums/72157667737641821
Between April 25 and 27, took place in Havana the first Intenational Free Software Conference (CubaConf) of Cuba. Many Latin American OSM contributors went to Cuba to give talks about OpenStreetMap and organize a workshop and a mapathon. Blog post Wille (talk)
- Oh yeah I saw your diary entry about Cubaconf. Great photos again. So much South America! -- Harry Wood (talk) 08:52, 17 May 2016 (UTC)
Children empowering themselves through maps
A photo series from Bluefields, Nicaragua, when the local OSM community and UNICEF worked with children and adolescents in schools to help children to empower themselves through the use of maps . I'm not sure which one to take, so I made a collage.
Caption proposal: "Children identifying places of risk in their environment through maps"
Read more about the contextː Bluefields has its first collaborative map

tourist map Pisa
Via SK53 on IRC. This looks very nice: crowdfunded tourist map for hills around Pisa http://conf.openstreetmap.it/slides/Mappadeimontipisani.org-OSMIT2016.pdf TODO: Choose a nice extract from the PDF and check we can open license that image (guess not a problem) -- Harry Wood (talk) 08:45, 23 May 2016 (UTC)
OSM stats visualization with Arduino
Made at OpenDot Lab in Milan and presented at OSMit2016 last week. Video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DNzWbN3C7wU
--User:Sarchittuorg 13:55, 23 May 2016
- Very cool!
- You should stick some music in the background on that video (e.g. youtube let's you do that quite easily without even re-uploading)
- Anyway the image is cool too.
- Caption: "Presented at OSMit2016, this moving 3D model by OpenDot Lab is the latest way to visualise OpenStreetMap stats!"
- We've got quite a backlog of events related images (and I wouldn't mind another from OSMIT e.g. a group photo) but this one can be featured some time soon I'm sure.

Plaza del Ejecutivo, Mexico City
Board game using OSM data
Board game using OSM data: memory game of the French largest cathedrals. Filtering of the Geofabrik extract with Osmosis, area calculation with QGIS, data processing and rendering with Maperitive/Maperipy. Contact: user:JBacc1. JB (talk) 09:53, 23 June 2016 (UTC)
