Routable Maps

Are the routable maps still being generated or have they got stuck tonight? It would be nice to see the current request queue (maybe encrypted email addresses), or at least the number in the queue so we can tell if it is moving without rerequesting a map. - LastGrape/Gregory 23:15, 7 July 2010 (UTC)

Forum authentication

Do you still work on the integration of OSM protocol authentication into the forum? Perhaps you can make some notes about the current status on the Single sign on Page. -- Mardocz 16:21, 01 Nov 2007 (CET)

Yes, consensus about the route to be taken was reached last week. It has been decided to try to use the API for authentication. I'm looking into this but I do not make predictions on when it will be ready. --Lambertus 21:14, 3 November 2007 (UTC)
Using the main OpenStreetMap API to authenticate users for the forum is now implemented. --Lambertus 20:55, 12 November 2007 (UTC)

Wijze van hergebruik data van

Ik las op Bestaande_geodata_hergebruiken#Wandel-_en_fiets-paden dat jij ooit Ben van der Genugten aansprak over hergebruik van zijn Gpx data. Zou je kunnen aangeven wat je hem precies hebt gevraagd en wat zijn bronnen zijn van waar hij zich op baseert? Ik vraag het omdat de data die ik zie voor LF paden allemaal dezelfde datum tag hebben per trackpoint. --ivom 21:08, 12 January 2008 (UTC)

Ik heb hem toestemming gevraagd om de tracklogs op zijn site te gebruiken voor OSM tezamen met een korte uitleg over OSM. Daarop heb ik toestemming gekregen de tracklogs te gebruiken onder voorwaarde van niet commercieel gebruik en dat er bronvermelding is. Over het niet commercieel gebruik heb ik nog een mail gewijd, namelijk dat OSM geen garanties kan geven wat dat betreft. Op deze mail is nooit gereageerd. Als de tracklogs geupload worden met de vermelding dat deze bij gpsfietsroutes vandaan komen is aan de bronvermelding eis voldaan. Mijns inziens heeft de AND import de noodzaak voor import van deze tracklogs teniet gedaan. De LF bestanden zijn een ander verhaal, deze lijken inderdaad ergens anders vandaan te komen en die zou ik niet zomaar gaan gebruiken voor OSM. --Lambertus 22:11, 12 January 2008 (UTC)

Your Frisian Maps

Hello Lambertus, I saw, that you are working on the integration of Frisian place names into OpenStreetMaps. I am interested in the integration of Low Saxon place names and I would like to hear about your experience. Are there special tools with which I could import larger amounts of place names? What are your working methods? Are there any more things to consider or to keep in mind? --::Slomox:: >< 12:10, 5 June 2008 (UTC)

Well, we (I didn't do this alone) downloaded all placenames using osmxapi for that area and edited those names using JOSM. When the editing was finished the changes were uploaded with JOSM also. 'Editing the placenames' means we manually added name:fy tags to the exiting placename nodes. --Lambertus 13:08, 5 June 2008 (UTC)
Thank you. I tried osmxapi, but it doesn't work, if I enter "wget[amenity=hospital] -O data.osm" into the command line (I tried other commands like "wget[lang:fy=*] -O data.osm" too), I only get an "501 internal server error". What can be the reason for that?
I had success in downloading data via JOSM directly, but the limitation to 0.25 degrees makes it less useful for adding place names in a greater region. Is it possible to edit saved .osm files with a text editor or is this not recommended (data consistency or whatever)? --::Slomox:: >< 15:05, 5 June 2008 (UTC)
I used the following command to retrieve all place nodes from the osmxapi:*%5D%5Bbbox=4.8,52.0,7.3,53.6%5D Just change the bounding box and it should work for you. Downloading with JOSM is not recommended for this type of job. --Lambertus 16:39, 5 June 2008 (UTC)
Hm, I get 501 internal server errors whatever I try. Is the server down? Are your requests working? --::Slomox:: >< 16:57, 5 June 2008 (UTC)
Yes, the server is down atm and maybe you want to change '' to ''. --Lambertus 18:44, 5 June 2008 (UTC)
Should be back up now, can you try again please? --Lambertus 18:47, 5 June 2008 (UTC)
Great. Does work now. Thank you. And there already are Low Saxon translations. Well, plural does not fit, it's exactly one place name. But that will hopefully change in the future ;-) --::Slomox:: >< 20:24, 5 June 2008 (UTC)

Hoi Lambertus, Miskien better om op dyn user-page Frieslân te feroarjen yn Fryslân. Ik wit net oft it op dizze wiki gewoan is om op oaren harren user-page flaters te ferbetterjen, mar op wikipedia binne se dêr wat allergysk foar dus ik doch it mar net sels.
Wat de fryske kaart oanbelanget, it is no al in skoftsje dat allinne de plaknammen mei in tag name:fy op de kaart in namme hawwe. Dit betsjut dat plakken dy't offisjeel al Frysk binne en dan neist de name tag ek in name:nl tag hawwe net as mei harren namme te sjen binne. Theun 12:01, 17 July 2008 (UTC)

De typo is gefixt, bedankt voor het melden. Wat het probleem met de plaatsnamen op de kaart betreft; dat lijkt me een bug in de rendering. Normaal hoort deze terug te vallen op 'name' zodra 'name:fy' ontbreekt... Ik zal dit aankaarten op de mailinglist.--Lambertus 13:23, 17 July 2008 (UTC)

uhai needs help with forum

I got a problem to registrate in the forum. I got the email and confirmed it. But I'm not able to login, every login gets refused. forgotten password doesn't help anyway, a new registration with same user/email is refused too.

Could you please have a look at the tables for user uhai?

I'm sorry to write here, but I found no other way to contact you. Your help is very welcome.

uhai--uhai 13:05, 27 July 2008 (UTC)

You can login using the same account (username or e-mail addres and password) of the main OpenStreetMap website. Hope this helps. --Lambertus 20:46, 27 July 2008 (UTC)

Kaart voor Curacao!

Hi Lambertus, Ik zou graag een wandel/fiets-/auto-navigatie kaart maken voor Curacao (bestaat nog niet). Maar geen idee hoe je zoiets moet aanpakken. Is het uberhaupt mogelijk? Peter.

Hangt er helemaal vanaf: Wil je een papieren kaart, voor Garmin, voor TomTom, moet de kaart routeerbaar (automatische navigatie) zijn, etc? Graag wat specifiekere wensen :-) --Lambertus 14:26, 1 September 2008 (UTC)

Your toolchain to create cycle maps

Hi Lambertus,

I am trying to get good cycle maps for Austria from osm data. Unfortunately I haven't figured out how to do it, yet. I was reading a lot about mkgmap but I still don't know how to use it. You wrote somewhere, that your complete toolchain is in Linux which would be very suitable for me. I'm using Kubuntu 8.10. It would be very nice, if you could tell me which commands and which stylefiles you are using. Any help would be much appreciated. Tikey 13:47, 15 February 2009 (UTC)


Hi Lambertus, I would like to send you a mail... --Markus 08:45, 19 December 2009 (UTC)

Hi Markus, you can always use the OSM private mail function, but osm at na1400 dot info will also be fine. --Lambertus 11:38, 21 December 2009 (UTC)

Frisian language map

I believe your Frisian language map was the first example of OpenStreetMap Map Internationalization. I added a link on that page. But is that map broken at the moment? -- Harry Wood 09:38, 28 May 2010 (UTC)

Forum for Wikiteam

Hi Lambertus,

I send you already a PM but it might get lost. I would like to please you to add a new forum for the people working on the wiki. There is now a wikiteam (but is informal) that would like to provide support to novice users and react on cleanup requests. We think a forum would be a better sollution for requests and our own coordination.--!i! This user is member of the wiki team of OSM 10:13, 22 November 2010 (UTC)

Thanks for trying to get my attention. Indeed, I hadn't read it so it got probably marked as read like most of the other bulk email... but I'll add the forum asap. --Lambertus 19:14, 22 November 2010 (UTC)

Forums wikipage

Hi L., some users had problems to find the admin of the forums, so I updated the wikipage Forum. Can you please add further details concerning hosting and history? --!i! This user is member of the wiki team of OSM 18:09, 26 December 2010 (UTC)

Thanks for setting up that page. I added some additional info --Lambertus 20:17, 26 January 2011 (UTC)

Forums Users:Algeria

Hi Lambertus, I try to create a forum for algerian users on the news OSM forum. Thank you, it's the best way to coordinate the project. Thanks. --Sandervalya 21:47, 18 January 2011 (UTC)

A forum for Algeria has been created. --Lambertus 20:53, 26 January 2011 (UTC)

Data dump for statistical analyses

Hi Lambertus,

I thinking about doing statistical analyses on the community so analysing all communication channels e.g. mailing lists, webfrontend and of course the forums. So here is my question, might it be possible to get a data dump of the forum to process the data and export it anomynised? Or might there be another way of getting the data and link them against other collected data sources (e.g. OSM internal PMs, edit histories,...)? --!i! This user is member of the wiki team of OSM 18:21, 23 March 2011 (UTC)

I cannot just give a database dump to anyone who's interested in user statistics, there are lots of privacy issues. Have you talked about this to OSMF? I'd like to see a specific list of things they feel that can be released (with or without NDA). --Lambertus 12:57, 24 March 2011 (UTC)
For sure, can you send me your eMail, please? I talked to the OSMF communications group. Harry Wood suggested an procedure, where all datas are processed by the sysadmins on the main server and only the anomynised and unsharpened dataset in the ends will become availabele. I will send you a copy. --!i! This user is member of the wiki team of OSM 15:10, 24 March 2011 (UTC)
The email address is listed near the top of my User page. --Lambertus 15:26, 24 March 2011 (UTC)

Wrong ban of users

Hi Lambertus, currently the forum seems to have a malefunction and says that this user, myself , (and I guess some more) had been banned form spam reasons. No, we didn't spammed at all ;) --!i! This user is member of the wiki team of OSM 09:06, 18 March 2014 (UTC)

This was caused by a technical failure after the forum moved to another IP address. It is solved on the same day. --Lambertus (talk) 10:57, 25 March 2014 (UTC)

Too similar username

Hi Lambertus, a user is complaigning, that he can't signup for his traditional username at the wiki [1]. What do you say, can we allow him to signup, as IMHO it's not THAT similar? --!i! This user is member of the wiki team of OSM 18:33, 23 March 2014 (UTC)

I wonder what I have to do with this? I admin the forum which uses the main authentication for access control and forum user creation. I have never interfered with wiki operations. But if you're asking my opinion I'd say that if he can register on www he should also be able to register on wiki with the same name. --Lambertus (talk) 10:56, 25 March 2014 (UTC)
Sry for the inconvince, was my fault as I mixed the different admins.--!i! This user is member of the wiki team of OSM 20:30, 25 March 2014 (UTC)

New API account

Hi Lambertus, I'd like to create a new identifier for your API if possible. I'd like to test your API YOURS for my startup "Dispatcher" and would perform a lot of requests. Is it possible ? Thanks in advance. Bye Julien

Forum administration, contact

Hey Lambertus. I tried to contact you because of the forum adminstration issue. You should have an email, would be happy to hear from you. Hakuch (talk) 12:52, 15 August 2016 (UTC)
