Featured image proposals
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.
- Image sources / places that might contain interesting OSM stuff:
- Dates to be taken note of when choosing a featured image
- Template:Calendar - Upcoming events that might call for an image
- Parked image proposals. Proposals which didn't go anywhere (but may still be rescued back onto this page)
Global Noise Pollution Map
Visualization of noise pollution for the entire world based on top of OSM data. Link: http://lukasmartinelli.ch/gis/2016/04/03/openstreetmap-noise-pollution-map.html Wille (talk)----
Saw a screenshot image of this on twitter: http://blog.alb42.de/programs/mapparium/ No better than any other software screenshot, but we should do more software screenshots really. We can spin a positive caption about this because it's a prime example of OSM data reaching exotic tech platforms!
Indoor mapping presented at WhereCamp Berlin
Apparently indoor mapping was a big topic and WhereCamp Berlin recently. Simon Poole was suggesting looking for an image from that. Anyone got a specific image to suggest?
I spotted this nice animated image https://twitter.com/tbsprs/status/794979018038710272 So I (or someone) could chase the licensing on that
Creating MapRoulette Challenges from GeoJSON
- Yeah it's a good tutorial to draw attention to, but I can't particularly see a stand out image there. -- Harry Wood (talk) 10:50, 13 December 2016 (UTC)
http://osmlanduse.org I think it's a new thing. googlemapsmania picked up on it but maybe just the website & interface is new. Maybe the background map style has been around for a while. "Background map by Maxim Rylov - OpenMapSurfer Roads". Screenshot should include the pie chart bit anyway I guess. -- Harry Wood (talk) 15:55, 20 December 2016 (UTC)
OSM in the German Museum of Technology
- Excellent. Thanks Wille! Tweaking the caption a bit : "An OpenStreetMap jacket on show at a "Who makes the map" exhibition at the German Museum of Technology" ... that's featured this week -- Harry Wood (talk)
OSMvis is a collection of visualizations related to OpenStreetMap. On the top image, you can see the most frequent words in the OSM Wiki. On the lower left side, the daily amount of new nodes and at the right, the quantity of new users per day. See more visualizations at http://projects.mocnik-science.net/osm-vis/ --Wille (talk) 14:00, 18 January 2017 (UTC)
- Oh nice.
- Maybe this image would be better split in two actually, just because the images work better when they're wider than they are high (on the Main Page and on twitter) ...but maybe you already spent time joining the images together :-)
