This is a collection of concepts / ideas for achievements in StreetComplete. Where I need most help is to find
- What things in the OSM ecosystem warrant an introduction and link
- What apps use certain OSM data
- Other interesting links to map related things
- Other ideas for achievements not necessarily related to any certain use of OSM data or as a pretense to introduce users to OSM
Please, feel free to add anything here, this is most of all first a brainstorming, collecting information. The discussion page can be used to discuss details of single proposals. I might curate the stuff collected here later, or on a separate page.
In bold the links that definitely go into the app.
Things that should be part of an introduction to OSM
The "order" column should be a number indicating if this should f.e. be the very first link the user is given, or if this should be mentioned later. For example, JOSM, mailing lists, overpass etc. should probably rather be mentioned later, how to connect to the local community earlier.
|order||link||explanatory SHORT text that could be
shown in the achievement
|proposed by||open source||comment|
|1||learnosm.org||New to OpenStreetMap? Here is a beginner's guide||westnordost||yes||Perhaps a bit too much info|
|yes||Website is a little awkward to use on mobile, maybe a bit of an overload (of choices). The list should rather be included into the app differently.|
|1||welcome.openstreetmap.org||Welcome to OpenStreetMap!||westnordost||yes||More geared towards organizations, it seems. Quite a bunch of information but well organized. Also renders very good on mobile.|
|2||wiki.openstreetmap.org||Our wiki is your starting point to everything related OpenStreetMap||westnordost||yes||Start page does not look well on mobile (only on landscape mode)|
|osmcal.org||Calli||yes||OpenStreetMap Calendar. Not really a map but lists OSM related events. Unclear how official this calender is. Issue for clarification: https://github.com/thomersch/openstreetmap-calendar/issues/20|
|3||weeklyosm.eu||Keep up to date with what is going on in the OpenStreetMap world||westnordost||N/A||This could instead perhaps be integrated "deeper" into the app, so SC could be a newsreader for this via RSS feed.|
|5||hdyc.neis-one.org||See how you contributed to OpenStreetMap||westnordost||no||This could instead be integrated deeper into the app, as an additional screen|
|5||osmlab.github.io/show-me-the-way||Watch a Live Feed of current mapping activity||westnordost||yes|
|7||umap.openstreetmap.fr||Create a custom public map and share it in minutes!||westnordost||yes||Alternatives: ~facilmap.org, mapbbcode.org|
Interesting uses how certain OSM data is used in practice
If possible, the applications/maps should not be fleeting stars, something established but still open source or at least a free service. Also, since users of StreetComplete are not necessarily tech-savvy, nothing too technical or ugly-looking. Something accessible from a smartphone (=small screen) is always better.
|link||uses which data||proposed by||open source||comment|
|https://touch-mapper.org/en/area||blind related||westnordost||yes||3D prints a section of a map. Actually nothing that is added via StreetComplete is used there|
|https://hapticke.mapy.cz/||blind related||westnordost||no||tactile map style. The website is barely usable on mobile|
|A bit ugly, renders well on mobile.
No data can be contributed with SC that are relevant for openseamap.
|https://wheelmap.org/||Wheelchair accesibility||westnordost||yes||Renders well on mobile|
|https://öpnvkarte.de||Public transport related||westnordost||no(?)||Renders well on mobile. Alternative: http://openptmap.org/ - but öpnvkarte.de is better|
|Doesn't display properly on mobile.
No data can be contributed with SC that are relevant for openrailwaymap.
|https://cyclosm.org/||Cycling related||Morty123||yes||Works well on mobile|
|https://openvegemap.netlib.re/||Veggie/vegan restaurant related||Morty123||yes||Alternative: https://veggiekarte.de/|
|renders well on mobile, but only for Germany. Issue for i18n:|
|limited usability, blitzer stuff is usually integrated in navigation apps|
|https://openlevelup.net||indoor data||Obny||yes||Renders well on mobile|
|https://cycle.travel/||cycling related||Obny||N/A / no?||Renders well on mobile. Mostly limited to UK. Unclear how commercial this service is.|
|https://osmbuildings.org/||building levels, roof levels and shapes||westnordost||yes||Looks good, renders well on mobile, open source|
|https://osmlab.github.io/show-me-the-way/||Show me the way||Calli||yes||Shows live OSM edits. Renders well on mobile but takes some time to load|
It's nice, but not open source, demo is free but basically they want to sell their POI service. Including it would be like an advertisement (and their personal contribution to achieve this data is rather low, very simple to do this with overpass).
|https://openskimap.org/||skiing-related (piste=*) data||rugk||yes||Makes sense if https://github.com/westnordost/StreetComplete/issues/956, https://github.com/westnordost/StreetComplete/issues/957 or https://github.com/westnordost/StreetComplete/issues/958 are implemented.
(If too many things are added here, we might want to add a column "category" or something to be able to group them.)
|link||license||proposed by||open source||comment|
|https://anvaka.github.io/city-roads/||OdbL||westnordost||yes||renders all the roads of a city, saveable as PNG and SVG|
|http://maps.stamen.com/mars/||westnordost||no?||map of mars|
|http://maps.stamen.com/watercolor/||westnordost||no?||OSM map with an artistic style|
|https://ohsome.org/apps/dashboard/||Calli||yes||analyze the history of OSM|
|overpass-api.de/achavi/||FbrG||?||Nice tool to see changes in specific locations. IMO better overview than 'History' on openstreetmap.org or osm history viewer. Link provided could also point directly to the changeset that got the user the achievement (e.g. overpass-api.de/achavi/?changeset=1234567)|
|https://osmstats.neis-one.org/||Calli||yes?||statistics for OSM|
|https://ent8r.github.io/NotesReview/?query=StreetComplete&limit=100&start=true||GPLv3||rugk||yes||Review notes created by StreetComplete users and solve their problems when you are at home.|

This could further be split by type of quest. I propose to focus on community achievements, as this holds potential for community activation.||Calli|
