How OSM are consistently the first to map new stuff

How do we pull it off?

Data + humans

15 become 7

And they like unique addresses

Plan of attack

Do all of the hard work in advance,

flick the switch on December 31st

Data model for streets

  • name = Current Name
  • proposed:name= Future Name
  • fixme:name = WikiProject_Belgium/Municipality_Fusions

until 31/12

  • name = Future Name
  • old_name= Current Name

from new years eve

What we need?

 

+ humans

+ data

+ tools

Do not make street level imagery without sharing it

If you're:

  • an organisation
  • a human

Do not create private databases if that isn't really necessary

If you're:

  • an organisation
  • a human

Make your data accessible

This slide still applies in too many places

Create excellent data

If you're in an organisation

Join our community

If you're a human (or not)

Buy us a camera, and we'll work on your project first

Road completion?

  • Use open data

  • Find roads we might miss forever

  • Make sure gov data is not more up to date than we are

  • Give minimal quality assurance

 

Road completion status

  • Ready for Brussels

  • Reboot needed for Flanders

  • Data needed in Wallonia
