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.

What kind of image?

The image must be released with an open license (including no non-commercial restriction) and...

Just a great image of one sort or another e.g.

  • Photos of people doing OpenStreetMap stuff
  • Interesting maps e.g. interesting renderings
  • Interesting screenshots of website maps
  • Interesting screenshots of other software
  • Bonus points for something in current news

We're trying for high standards but all proposals will be considered

How to propose?

How to propose?

Simply create a new section on this wiki page with your proposal (If you don't know how to edit the wiki, you can email CWG instead)

That's the minimum and we need more people doing this. After that, you (perhaps with the help of others) can...

  • upload the image to the wiki
  • Specify an open license on the image description page (Contact image "author" as necessary)
  • Embed the image in the proposal section on this page at 400px wide.
  • Write a caption describing the image, and linking any further reading. Captions should be short and use promotional language.

If you just do the first step (propose an image) others can help you with the remaining steps.


Meta stuff:

Global Noise Pollution Map

Paris-noises.png

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)----

We need permission for this I think -- Harry Wood (talk) 22:16, 18 April 2016 (UTC)
Since the data used in this map is totally from OSM database, I believe we don't need to ask permission Wille (talk)---

Mapparium

Saw a screenshot image of this on twitter: http://blog.alb42.de/programs/mapparium/ No better than any other software screenshot, but we should do more software screenshots really. We can spin a positive caption about this because it's a prime example of OSM data reaching exotic tech platforms!

Indoor mapping presented at WhereCamp Berlin

Apparently indoor mapping was a big topic and WhereCamp Berlin recently. Simon Poole was suggesting looking for an image from that. Anyone got a specific image to suggest?

I spotted this nice animated image https://twitter.com/tbsprs/status/794979018038710272 So I (or someone) could chase the licensing on that

Creating MapRoulette Challenges from GeoJSON

The tutorial (also [1]) has pictures, the project licence is Apache 2.0.--Andrew (talk) 19:06, 11 December 2016 (UTC)

Yeah it's a good tutorial to draw attention to, but I can't particularly see a stand out image there. -- Harry Wood (talk) 10:50, 13 December 2016 (UTC)

Bus stops of Rosario and Buenos Aires

It needs a better marker for the bus stops, but can be an idea to a post in the future: https://twitter.com/OpenStreetMapAR/status/834933019928571904 There are a lot of bus routes mapped in both cities as well. --Wille (talk) 01:42, 24 February 2017 (UTC)

SotM Africa

In 2017 we will have the first ever State of the Map Africa! It will be held in Kampala, Uganda's capital from 8th to 10th July. In this image you can see how well mapped is the Kampala's city centre. --Wille (talk) 13:38, 7 March 2017 (UTC)

TODO: grab & crop. get permissions. write caption

-- Harry Wood (talk) 15:28, 10 March 2017 (UTC)

Sent an email, to Hans Hack requesting permissions for an image for this one. Bit late for this week -- Harry Wood (talk) 23:40, 26 March 2017 (UTC)
OK got back permissions from Hans for the above image. He replied nice and quickly, so actually that would've been ok for this week, but the FOSSGIS suggestion is more timely news, so saving this one for later -- Harry Wood (talk) 09:39, 27 March 2017 (UTC)

FOSSGIS 2017

FOSSGIS 2017, the German OpenStreetMap and open source GIS conference, took place last week in Passau

Ah brilliant thanks. I was forgetting about FOSSGIS, but meaning to ask someone to get a photo. Featuring this now! -- Harry Wood (talk) 09:26, 27 March 2017 (UTC)
