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.

Ecuador earthquake response mapping

I'm looking out for some good images illustrating this. Any suggestions?

https://twitter.com/MediaLabUIO/status/725112692009275393 by MediaLabUIO asked for permission, but we'd also need to know a bit about the event

-- Harry Wood (talk) 09:52, 27 April 2016 (UTC)

OK I got permission last week, and after a bit of digging I even found a blog post about this event!
Caption: "Students at MediaLab UIO in Ecuador mapping in response to the recent earthquake, using the OSM Tasking Manager to coordinate with mappers around the world. Read more on their blog (spanish) and on the 2016 Ecuador earthquake page.'"
So... featuring this now
