  23. 23. What does the future hold for traditional style mappers? The introduction of Bing images - 2010 State of the Map 2013 September 2013 Birmingham,UK
  24. 24. In November 2010 we heard the big news that we could use Bing satellite Images for OSM. I was happy because using the Bing images expanded mapping possibilities. http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Bing
  25. 25. Use of Bing images in OSM But at the same time I was sad. When I realized the amount of information and detail collected through Bing images. I could see that maps such as those I created on foot with a GPS would start to replaced by maps created using high resolution satellite images. Yokomaha City
  26. 26. Use of Bing images in OSM Many of the maps that I have spent months creating using GPS logs and logging photos cannot compete with the information and detail of Bing Images. Tokyo Station
  27. 27. Tokyo, Kamakura, Yokohama・・・ Many of the places we spent time GPS mapping hold deep memories for us. But with the advance of tracing using Bing images, I can see that the maps I created will soon be replaced.
  28. 28. Even so, I'm a mapper! I was happy to be able to use Bing Images in Japan and have spent many hours tracing Bing Images, and thinking about how I could trace best. I have traced several thousand buildings and roads around Japan. “Red = ikiya” Yokohama, Japan ito! OSM Mapper http://www.itoworld.com/static/openstreetmap_tools/osm_mapper.html
  29. 29. In 9 months, I traced 16,000 buildings in central Tokyo using Bing images. Red=ikiya Tokyo, Japan ito! OSM Mapper http://www.itoworld.com/static/openstreetmap_tools/osm_mapper.html
  30. 30. But in Japan, something even more sensational for me was to come.
  31. 31. What does the future hold for traditional style mappers? The introduction of KIBAN - 2012 KIBAN Chizu Joho (Fundamental Geospatial Data ) http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/JA:GSI_KIBAN State of the Map 2013 September 2013 Birmingham,UK
  32. 32. http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/JA:GSI_KIBAN In 2011, the Geospatial Information Authority of Japan (GSI) decided to allow people to use the government's mapping data called Kiban Chizu Joho (KIBAN), on OSM. This would allow people to trace KIBAN illustrations but would not allow the importing of data.
  33. 33. 基盤地図情報閲覧サービス  http://fgd.gsi.go.jp/view/ This is a sample of Kiban Chizu Joho of GSI data. (1/2,500 scale) Fundamental Geospatial Data ;KIBAN Chizu Joho(GSI)
  34. 34. In 2012, it became possible to use KIBAN as an underlay when editing data on TMS. http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/JA:GSI_KIBAN/Using_GSI_KIBAN_WMS
  35. 35. Although KIBAN data is not as new as Bing Images, it is more accurate and even in its coverage of cities. Also, with Bing, it is necessary to interpret images to determine roads or buildings. However, because this is not necessary with KIBAN. Map-making has become faster and more accurate. In 10 months, I traced 70,000 buildings using KIBAN data. Red=ikiya ito! OSM Mapper http://www.itoworld.com/static/openstreetmap_tools/osm_mapper.html
  36. 36. Looking back over my experiences over the last few years, I see this. Maps created over many months with a GPS have replaced with more accurate maps created using Bing. Maps created over many months using Bing images have been replaced with maps created using even more accurate data. What do you, as OSM Mappers, think of this? To be honest, 'the mapper in me' feel sad.
  37. 37. What does the future hold for traditional style mappers? Further Introduction of Data to OSM in the Future State of the Map 2013 September 2013 Birmingham,UK
  38. 38. Yokomaha City It seems to me that we are moving more towards open data and open governments. I forsee that even more accurate and detailed data sources will be used on OSM in the future. Should this progress be stopped?
  39. 39. Bus stop data collected by riding buses for many months May be replaced by even more detailed data released by governments. The same may be said of Street maps created over many months using satellite images and GPS mapping.
  40. 40. What does the future hold for traditional style mappers? Mappers and Change State of the Map 2013 September 2013 Birmingham,UK
  41. 41. I have spent many hours thinking about this, But as permission to use the data has been given, I cannot find a reason not to use this more detailed and accurate data. Underlying this is my opinion that OSM should not be a community just for mappers - it should be a community for all people. Even if long hours have been spent creating a map, if a better map is produced, it should be the one used. Oosu coast, Fukushima
  42. 42. As mappers who come into direct contact with mapping data, our roles and presence will changes as OSM grows and its environment changes. The driving force behind OSM is the community and people, and I hope it always will be.
  43. 43. The role of Mappers is to link OSM and people going about their daily lives. If you look around, you will see that as mappers, there are still many things we can do. As for me, I will continue to map with GPS and Bing trace and KIBAN trace as always.
