Mapping evenings

Not that many people signed up for London/Summer 2008 Mapping Party Marathon/2008-05-21. Is User:Nickb in the office today? what's his excuse? he lives nearby :-) -- Harry Wood 11:45, 21 May 2008 (UTC)

Nick and Steve are currently out of the country, as they have been at WHERE 2.0. Smsm1 13:27, 21 May 2008 (UTC)
Oh yeah. so they are. Fair enough then. Guess I'll see you for a quiet drink tonight then! -- Harry Wood 15:20, 21 May 2008 (UTC)

Hi Sean. The Peckham one tonight isn't looking too popular. I think everyone's concentrating on SOTM. I'm not very keen myself actually. Just listed myself in order to encourage others, but the weather's miserable and it's a long way to travel for me, so actually I think I'm going to skip this one  :-( -- Harry Wood 14:18, 9 July 2008 (UTC)

I think it is more the fact that it is Peckham and it is raining. I've got a puncture to fix before I can get there. Mark and I will wait until about 2030, then head home if there is no one else turning up. Smsm1 16:20, 9 July 2008 (UTC)

I set up the sign-up list for the Mulberry Bush, just on the same page there: London/Winter 2008-9 Random Pub Meetup ...but I probably wont be around for this one. Looking at going on holiday. Anyway maybe you should call that the "OSM Christmas party", although in we did a really big one last year on a weekend day and people travelled in from elsewhere for it. -- Harry Wood 15:41, 27 November 2008 (UTC)

Rail Map on test server

I can't currently login , but this is expected with the udpates as you explained :)

I was intending to start again with the rail-map using NPE and the 7th Series/ OS (1:25000) First Series as they come out of (C). (NB I need to check, but I think the 1:25000 might mark tube stations as well)


Another source of information for a rail map might be out of copyright timetables of sectional appendix dat, but no-one seems too clear on when these would have been subject to copyright expiry...

Rail Map

Progress Update : Most of the Great Western railway in South West England is now mapped in this..

I intend to complete the GWR mapping in the next few weeks, and then plan to work roughly anti-clockwise out from London (starting with the Tilbury line).

I would appreciate a further discussion on this dataset, as I feel it's time it was opened up to collaborative effort, ( I wanted to mention it on uk.railway for example)

Also I'd like a discussion on how relevant portions of the dataset could be 'copied' back into OSM, which was part of the original intention of it..

Please add Russian standalone blogs to planet.osm

Hi! Could you please add both Russian blogs from OSM Blogs to blogs.osm.org? It's http://osmdigest.ru/ and http://whatosm.textual.ru/ . Thanks.

Mapzen POI Collector open sourced

I've updated the Mapzen POI Collector page with the github links you showed yesterday. Good work setting those up. I guess there's work to do before they can be resubmitted to the appstore.

Yes there's some work required to get them updated to the latest SDKs and working before submitting to the app stores. Thanks for updating the relevant wiki page. Smsm1 (talk) 12:09, 4 February 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:FreethepostcodeVisualisation2008-03-15.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" or "this is map generated from OpenStreetMap data and SRTM data" or "map generated from OSM data and only OSM data".

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.

Help

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)
