Welcome to OpenStreetMap

Hello Mapconcierge, and welcome to OpenStreetMap!

Here are some tips to help you make the most from OSM:

  • Please don't use copyrighted maps as a data source for OpenStreetMap edits
  • To meet other mappers from your country, add these lines to your wiki userpage:
    [[Category:Users in your country|Mapconcierge]]
    [[Category:Users in your city|Mapconcierge]]
  • Join your regional mailing list
  • Take a look at the Beginners' guide
  • And if you have any questions, look at the FAQ page, or just ask!

Have fun mapping!

Files from Wikipedia

Hi Mapconcierge, maybe you know in the meantime: if you want to use files which are in Wikipedia you do not need to upload them here (if they are saved on Wikimedia Commons). Please just use the files as if they were uploaded here. :-) I have replaced these three files by the originals: File:450px-Ino-tadataka,sawara,katori-city,japan.JPG , File:800px-Bento de luxe.jpg , File:800px-Shibuya Station ToyokoLine Platform.jpg. --Aseerel4c26 (talk) 22:09, 17 July 2013 (UTC)

Missing file information

Hello! And thanks for your upload - but some extra info is necessary.

Sorry for bothering you about this, but it is important to know source of the uploaded files.

Are you the author of image File:5-1-470x320.jpg ?

Or is it copied from some other place (which one?)?

Please, add this info to the file page - something like "I took this photo" or "downloaded from -website link-" or "I took this screeshot of program XYZ".

In case that you are the author of the image: Would you agree to open licensing of this image, allowing its use by anyone (similarly to your OSM edits)?

Would you be OK with CC0 (it allows use without attribution or any other requirement)?

Or do you prefer to require attribution and some other things using CC-BY-SA-4.0?

If you are the author: Please add {{CC0-self}} to the file page to publish the image under CC0 license.

You can also use {{CC-BY-SA-4.0-self}} to publish under CC-BY-SA-4.0 license.

Feel free to ask for help if you need it - you can do it for example by asking on Talk:Wiki: new topic.

Please ask there if you are not sure what is the proper next step. Especially when you are uploading files that are not your own work or are derivative work (screenshots, composition of images, using aerial imagery etc).

Once you add missing data - please remove {{Unknown|subcategory=uploader notified January 2022}} from the file page.

The same applies to - are you the author? If yes, are you willing to release it under an open license? (flicker user has it as "all rights reserved") Mateusz Konieczny (talk) 18:20, 11 March 2022 (UTC)
