Talk:GvSIG Valencia mapping party

From OpenStreetMap Wiki

Some organizational issues:

  • Raster maps of current OSM data of Valencia may be generated and prepared for use with PDA/laptop software like gvSIG Mobile, gvSIG Desktop, OZI Explorer CE and OZI Explorer. OSMtiledownloader can be used to produce png and map files for OZI.
  • Tile maps of current OSM data of Valencia may be generated and prepared for use with PDA/laptop software like OSMtracker. OSMtiledownloader can be used to download these tiles.
  • An FTP site should be provided to upload these files, since they weigh more than 1MB.

Other proposals:

  • To plot a big map at the end of the party to show the results in the gvSIG conference, like they will do in the Gerona mapping party.
  • Prior to the survey/mapping activities, we could agree on which streets will be considered as primary or trunk roads. I would also add secondary/terciary roads, as it's been made in Madrid.
  • Some questions:
    • ¿Do we track bike-lanes? It's possible with OSM, but ¿do we register them? I think it's a good idea. Here you have a couple of resources for bike-lanes 12 in Valencia.
    • ¿What about near main roads? I mean major roads connecting surroundings areas of Valencia (e.g. CV-35, CV-30 -plan sur-, Ronda Norte, A-3, ...) I think it would be great, as Valencia seems now to be an island.
    • ¿Multiligual names? I'd rather use one language ¿the name written on the plate? ¿Always Spanish?

There's a lot of practical information about how to organize a mapping party in this Mapping Weekend Howto.

These are the best coordinates I could prepare for georeferencing the file Valencia_centre_17x.png. You can save it as a CSV file and import it with gvSIG when georeferencing the image. The result is not perfect, though. If someone knows how to correct it please feel free to do it :)

If you are not familiar with JOSM (the desktop editor for OpenStreetMap), you can have a look at this JOSM Tutorial, only in Spanish at the moment (as there are only Spanish users subscribed to this mapping party) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Mmontesinos (talkcontribs) 20h24min de 5 de novembro de 2007‎ UTC-3
