Hello! For your lightning talk at SOTM I recommend this area for test data. You will find highway=street_lamp on Nodes and lit=yes/no in north-east and south-west area. You can also use these Kosmos rendering rules (Bahnpirat/Let there be light) to visualise the data. Or customize it or not use it. What you like. --Bahnpirat 20:53, 28 June 2010 (UTC)

Gaël, you emailed Andy about OSMF membership. I confirm that you are a member. I did email the email address you used in PayPal just last night ... very late, apologies MikeCollinson 17:08, 1 July 2010 (UTC)

SOTM10 Lightning Talk

Hi, did you give a talk at State of the Map? Please could you update the page to move your talk into the right place. Or if you didn't speak in the end could you delete your talk title from the wiki page to make it clearer. If you know others that need moving, please do this too. Thank you.

Import du bâti

Salut, en regardant le fichier osm du bâti de l'Eure (, j'ai constaté que les coordonnées des points étaient fausses (une latitude autour de 56°). Y'a-t-il un moyen de corriger cela ? cordialement, --Aroche 14:37, 20 July 2010 (UTC)

Forum des usages coopératifs à Brest


Vous avez eu l'occasion de rencontrer Michel Briand, élu en charge de l'internet et du multimédia à la ville de brest et vice-président en charge de l'aménagement numérique du territoire à Brest Métropole Océane, lors d'une rencontre sur l'open data à Nantes. Il a évoqué avec vous la possibilité d'une intervention d'OSM dans le cadre du Forum des usages coopératifs qui se tient du 10 au 13 juillet 2012 à Brest.

Il souhaitait qu'un représentant d'OSM puisse apporter son expérience dans le cadre de la session Libre, innovation, territoires, la coopération passe à l’échelle qui se déroule sur les 3 matinées et également sur l'atelier Coopération : pratiques collaboratives au sein de grands réseaux du jeudi 12 après-midi.

Je ne sais pas si c'est vous ou un réprésentant du CA d'OSM qui pourrait se rendre disponible pour intervenir au forum ?

Je suis au titre du service Internet et expression multimédia la personne qui suit les prises en charge des intervenants. La ville de Brest prend en charge l'inscription des intervenants, l'hébergement et la restauration. Si l'intervenant ne peut être défrayé par sa structure au niveau du déplacement nous vous proposons de prendre en charge le prix de votre titre de transport.

Merci de me contacter dès que vous pouvez pour coordonner l'intervention d'OSM dans le cadre du forum.

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:Lambesc centre.png ?

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".

Doing this would be already very useful.

Licensing - photos

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)?

In case where it is a photo you (except relatively rare cases) author can make it available under a specific free license.

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.

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

Licensing - other images

If it is not a photo situation gets a bit more complicated.

See Drafts/Media file license chart that may help.

note: if you took screenshot of program made by someone else, screenshot of OSM editor with aerial imagery: then licensing of that elements also matter and you are not a sole author.

note: If you downloaded image made by someone else then you are NOT the author.

Note that in cases where photo is a screenshot of some software interface: usually it is needed to handle also copyright of software itself.

Note that in cases where aerial imagery is present: also licensing of an aerial imagery matter.


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).

If you are interested in wider discussion about handling licencing at OSM Wiki, see this thread.

(sorry if I missed something that already states license and source: I am looking through over 20 000 files and fixing obvious cases on my own, in other I ask people who upladed files, but it is possible that I missed something - in such case also please answer)
