OSM for Wikimedians

  1. 1. OpenStreetMapfor Wikimedians[[User:Tom Morris]]en.wikipedia, en.wikinews
  2. 2. We’re pretty similar• Founded in 2004• OpenStreetMap Foundation, non-profit UK limited company started in 2006• Freely-licensed geospatial data contributed by a community of volunteers• It’s also enormously addictive
  3. 3. Contributing• Get user account• Collect traces with a GPS device with GPX export.• Other formats than GPX can be converted using GPSBabel
  4. 4. Town and city• There’s lots that needs doing, but it’s mostly maintenance of existing content (like WP!)• To find things to do, go to the OSM wiki: wiki.openstreetmap.org and type in city – e.g. London.• Metadata improvements, pubs, churches, public toilets, schools, bus stops etc.
  5. 5. In the countryside: loads to do!
  6. 6. OSMTracker (Android)
  7. 7. • Get GPS trace off device• Login• Upload• Wait patiently...• Edit map• Trace• Save• Repeat until barnstar ;-)
  8. 8. Why?• OSM now used in Wikipedia apps• Can be reused within Wikimedia projects?• Imagine: Wikiversity? Wikispecies?• Can be used as part of GLAM/ partnership work• Fits within our mission!
  9. 9. OpenCycleMap OpenPisteMap
