Welcome to OpenStreetMap
Hello Acracia, and welcome to OpenStreetMap!
Here are some tips to help you make the most from OSM:
Have fun mapping!
I am interested on developing web based mapping systems, and I am using openstreetmaps with openlayers for it.
I am interestedon using the base system of openlayers and on having another layer of information I can control and not ask consensus about, while helping to make a better common map with information everybody cares for.
Tiles that I cannot render correctly:
I live in the Netherands, with really complex tiles (thanks to the info donated by AND, the huge density of population and the canals, that put water all over the place and make many of my tiles ender with blue where there should be white. All the closer layers get blue also...
I cannot render this tiles with z12, cause the Inkscape breaks. But when I render them with less zoom, I get blue soil and the nice rendering goes away. Still investigating why it happens in this particular ones, and trying to get also to render in bigger tiles.
Tiles that make Inkscape crash
I've seen that you've contributed really a lot of data in Argentina, especially on railways. Now, I wanted to ask if you already know that OpenStreetMap is asking existing contributors to re-license their contributions under a new license, which seems to be more suitable for our data. (OSM wants to change the current Creative Commons Attribution Share-Alike 2.0 (CC-BY-SA 2.0) to Open Database License (ODbL) 1.0.)
Maybe you've reasons why you did not accept it already. Perhaps you could tell me.
You can read more about the license change here: http://www.osmfoundation.org/wiki/License/We_Are_Changing_The_License
You can accept the new license here (if you're logged in): http://openstreetmap.org/user/terms
I hope to hear from you! --Geogast 21:36, 20 December 2011 (UTC)
