Welcome Romania

See the partners on the map: We are Partners
Half a year after the project started, on February 17 our Turkish partner was approved See where the school of our turkish partner is situated: ... New Partner in Turkey


What are the aims?

  • To ensure that the OSM maps in the regions of the participating schools are up to date. If not, the students will track new routes and introduce the necessary POIs;
  • To map historical monuments, and in Germany especially, Stolpersteine;
  • To improve the database, produce related services (routing, historic maps) and make it available in all participating countries using Web 2.0 technology;
  • To organise the technical content so that it can be put onto the communities’ websites, and so that the political and social dimension of these new techniques can be readily discussed.


How can I apply for a similar project?

OSM Weekly

Weekly OSM logo

My community and my history in OpenStreetMap will also contribute to this particular blog, from which various messages from the OSM world are publicised to a wider audience. The main source of all our news is translated from the German-language “Wochennotiz“. Our blog has not only received much positive and encouraging feedback from the community; the best response has been from Satoshi IIDA a Japanese mapper, who has offered to translate the weekly OSM messages into Japanese. Now, we are proud to have also a French and Czech version.

The project devoloped the infrastructure for weeklyOSM.

  • WordPress, Dissimination: Twitter and various mailinglists;
  • for the communication: various mailing lists, accounts on Rizzoma,

Problems and solutions

Mapping archeological sites - Castro de Santa Trega

Mapping Santa Trega
How to do it?
  • in Trier - Kaiserthermen: [1]
  • in Rome - Basilica Iulia [2]

(Zecke, [3])

Was mir in Trier nicht gefällt: Die Kaiserthermen sind komplett als ein Gebäude erfasst, ob wohl es ja eher ein Ansammlung von Mauern, Ruinen und erhaltenen Gewölben ist mit viel Rasen dazwischen. Da würde ich die Objekte eher einzeln erfassen und mit einer heritage-Relation zu den Kaiserthermen zusammenfassen. barrier=wall ist nun eine echte Zusatzinformation, die im ersten Beispiel gar nicht vorkommt. Ansonsten sind historic=ruins und ruins=yes beides valide Taggings. Wenn der Ruinenaspekt im Vordergrund steht, vielleicht eher letzteres, wenn dir eigentliche Funktion des Objekts im Vordergrund stehen soll, ruins lieber als Attribut, ebenso historic. Ansonsten gilt aber auch, je detaillierter, desto besser. Wenn man also genauer weiß, was für ein Gebäude es war, z.B. building=church; ruins=yes; historic=yes.
