The Wochenaufgabe is the Weekly Task of the German OSM Blog (Catergory:Wochenaufgabe).

Every 1-2 weeks they present a new task to encourage users to map in the following days. Everybody can suggest these tasks (blog@openstreetmap.de). Usually they are small POIs like a charging station or certain type of vending machine.

Emergency Access Points KW 37/38 (2014-09-08 – 2014-09-21)

Missing addr:street KW 33/34 (2014-08-11 – 2014-08-24)

Coloured streets missing addr.street.png

This weekly task is to add missing addr:street (or addr:place) to existing addr:housenumber. There are linked different tools on the german blog post page for finding and editing such cases.

More information see Wochenaufgabe blog post (de)

Result: during the 2 weeks of that Wochenaufgabe, the number of addresses without street in germany decreased from 132047 to 41762. So there are now more than 90000 applicable adresses more in the OSM database.[1]

Post boxes KW 31/32 (2014-07-28 – 2014-08-11)


A post box (AE collection box, mailbox or drop box) is a facility to send out stamped postal items (letters & small goods).

Proposals for future actions


While running an action, the documentation in the Wiki should be consolidated and updated.

Completing hotel information by website, phone and e-mail

Motivation: When looking for a place to stay, commercial booking services deliver only limited geographical information. With a simple overpass API call http://overpass-turbo.eu/s/4TM, hotels in a specific area are delivered. It then would be nice to have the contact information readily available. This project actually should be done world wide. --Fx99 (talk) 05:31, 4 September 2014 (UTC)

100k new addresses in Germany

Motivation: obvious--Fx99 (talk) 05:31, 4 September 2014 (UTC)

from building=yes to something more useful

Motivation: The standard for mapping buildings seams to be still building=yes This could be done a lot more precise taking the tagging scheme in the wiki: http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:building --Fx99 (talk) 05:31, 4 September 2014 (UTC)

also building levels, colors roofs could be added in this shape to make maps like this more nicely: http://demo.f4map.com/#lat=48.1368676&lon=11.5757716&zoom=17&camera.theta=58.628&camera.phi=-34.238 --Morray (talk) 18:59, 11 September 2014 (UTC)

from surface=paved or surface=unpaved to something more precise

As already mentioned in surface=*: use a more precise value if possible
Overpass-Query: http://overpass-turbo.eu/s/4UU -- Haribo (talk) 06:01, 5 September 2014 (UTC)

Amenities/shops which lack an opening_hours tag, but have a website tag

As proposed by user ypid in his diary: Often the opening hours can be found on the website. This can be done remotely and worldwide.

Map (by ypid, too): http://openingh.openstreetmap.de/?setLng=en

Overpass-Query: See diary for the current version.


Bei mit access=designated oder access=destination getaggten Ways die Beschilderung prüfen

Grenzen mit Landuse und Straßen

Ways mit boundary=* von Ways mit z.B. landuse=* oder highway=* trennen (besonders schlimm in DE-RP)

beinahe Verbindungen korrigieren

Die Wochenaufgabe soll eine vor einem Jahr durchgeführte "Wette" wiederholen, bei der beinahe Verbindungen mit keepright korrigiert werden. Der Weg muss entweder verbunden werden, oder ein noexit=yes dran oder (wenn man es von der Couch nicht lösen kann) der Fehler evtl. in OSM-Notes gemeldet werden.

Eine Beschreibung hierfür existiert bereits. Der Einsatz des QAT Scripts verwandelt das Korrekturerlebnis wie eine Maproulette-Challenge (wo es damals im Übrigen darum ging, beinahe Verbindungen in ganz USA zu korrigieren).

Motivation: Routingfähigkeit der (im Sommer erfassten) OSM-Daten wieder herstellen! Wenn die Wege nicht verbunden sind, können (bspw. Abkürzungen) nicht geroutet werden.

Was brauche ich: jemanden, der eine Overpass-Abfrage erstellen kann und eine kleine Statistik führt (oder mir sagt wie das geht). Möglicherweise wieder als Wettbewerb der Bundesländer. Den Support im Forum kann ich übernehmen. --Poppei82 (talk) 07:41, 11 September 2014 (UTC)

Kannst du in kurzen Worten beschreiben, was die Overpass Abfrage leisten soll? Couchmapper (talk) 13:43, 14 September 2014 (UTC)

Fehlende fire_station mappen

--Fx99 (talk) 09:21, 14 September 2014 (UTC)

siehe http://forum.openstreetmap.org/viewtopic.php?id=26968
