О нас

  • This year's OSM donation drive is still running. weeklyOSM says thank you to: Peter Karich (Graphhopper) for 1000 Euro, Florian Schenk (500 Euro), Viktar Shcherb (OsmAnd team) for 300 Euro, Andreas Geyer-Schulz, Markus Hallermann, Henri Geist and Julian Hollingbery each for 200 Euro and all the other donors to OSMF.


  • Last week Mexico launched (автоматический перевод) their first cableway for public transportation: the ‘Mexicable’. The importance of the Mexicable is that it will be able to transport people from the poor neighborhoods of the suburbs of the capital. @federicomena asked (automatic translation) OSMers in Mexico to help map the stations. A week later the stations were mapped on OSM.
  • Ziltoidium asks (Deutsch) in the German Forum, whether one can exert influence on bicycle routing by means of special tagging. (автоматический перевод)

  • The weekly roundup by Krishna Nammala (Mapbox) about suspicious changes that were commented or reverted.


  • ImreSamu has written a diary entry after reading Michal Migurski's blog post that talked about robot mapping. Influenced by Sadya Nadella's "laws of robotics" (which was of course influenced by Asimov), ImreSamu suggests what rules robot mappers should have to adhere to.
  • There's discussion in the DE forum about the tone and etiquette used in discussions, including changeset comment discussions, with reference to the draft community code of conduct that has lain ignored in the wiki for some years (including a suggestion, perhaps not entirely serious, for a "Ministry of Truth Working Group"). There's also been discussion of codes of conduct elsewhere, such as for OSM website and "Standard" map style development.
  • Guillaume is looking for documentation for uMap in English. As a basis for a new one, commentors suggest (Französisch) the French version.

Гуманитарный OSM

  • Fredy Rivera called on October 10 for help to map two threatened villages around the volcano Cerro Machín (автоматический перевод) in Colombia. The mapping is already finished: Task1, Task2. It would be nice if experienced JOSM mappers could validate the data.


  • Anton of Transit wrote a very detailed and quite interesting explanation of how they autogenerate their transit maps for their supported cities worldwide.

Открытые данные

  • DigitalGlobe delivered the latest satellite imagery after Hurricane Matthew's catastrophe in Haiti under a CC BY license for humanitarian organizations such as HOT and the American Red Cross. Many of the images are also now available in OpenAerialMap, both for download and as map services.
