Week One + 1 day

Posted by ioliver on 29 October 2017 in English (English)

The joys of rescaling things ... like entier city center....basically rescale in JOSM by selecting all and using Ctrl+Shift (or was it Ctrl+Alt ... one of them is rotate, but you can work that out) and upload.

And all roads and rail broken in JOSM, split those and reassemble using the web editor...

Check using the OGF Scale Helper, eg: http://tile.opengeofiction.net/util/map_scale.html?map=C/15.372989512876591/62.00805/46.58825&map2=OSM/x/51.48012/-3.17211&pxpt=0.277&scale=6250

Now you notice that the area for shopping, offices, government, railway station etc is about the size of Cardiff, Wales. We even have a stadium in the city center!

Repeat until correct,sane or until insanity has set in...

Next time, if you like to report your daily mapping, use the user blikis instead of spamming here. It is nice to hear about your progress though.

Call me very impressed! You are possibly the first mapper ever on OGF to use JOSM effectively to resolve a scaling issue in such a short time. It took me a year to learn what you've figured out in a week + 1 day. Awesome.

I look forward to seeing what's next.

That said, I will nevertheless second zhenkang - probably best not to use the User Diaries as if they were your diary - the name is a bit misleading, and the hope is it isn't flooded with everyone's day-to-day observations and tribulations.

Thanks,,,so, JOSM isn't too bad - on the other hand I've seen the professional stuff (I worked for a mapping company, though not actually doing any mapping work. I will say the vehicles used for mapping roads are freaking impressive).

What's next...more stuff..whatever mind dump comes next - it's growing organically :-)

Diaries ... kind of a misleading name, but don't no more updates at any regular interval - I've made more diary entires here than in the past X years of life (X is large but not too large yet). I'll spend most of my time over on the Wiki for the country, and of course with JOSM

Be aware of overwikification and hope you'll have a great time in OGF! Congratulations on mastering JOSM also.
