By the way, is it supposed to be so that we don’t see old changesets when clicking the History link at the top? I only see changesets made after the server change. The same thing is true when I check my own changesets from my profile, only new ones will be shown (the number in profile includes the old ones though)
Sidenote: Posting the comment also logged me out…
I haven’t tried editing online but try refreshing the log in page (Ctrl+F5) every time before logging in. For me it solves most of the problems when trying to log in. However if I don’t do that every time, it doesn’t work.
Just a side note, if you mean Åland islands by Äland islands. Åland is part of Finland, not Sweden.
I have used Inkscape. It’s not that hard to use if you have time to try different things with it. All the metro maps here are made with Inkscape. I had made almost nothing with Inkscape before those maps.
There is also some advice on the FAQ page: How can I use JOSM for editing the OpenGeofiction map?
Welcome to OGF!
You can find the blue territories that you are allowed to edit here. The blue territories are blue on the map. Remember that you can’t edit anywhere else without permission. Here are some other useful links:
First of all, you should know the basic rules of OpenGeofiction. There are a few territories that are for beginners. After mapping there for at least 7 days, you can request a territory of your own. Here are some useful links:
Konsiat is marked as “For advanced users only” on the overview map.
Yes, I will remove them when the airport is complete. I still think I will still make some changes so I haven’t removed them yet.
I still may have to add a little more room there though.
I made more changes to the airport. Now it’s a bit bigger but there’s also more room for the planes. Thanks for the idea to use aircraft silhouettes! I think it really helped me.
I don’t think it’s completely normal. Yes, that is the normal time it takes for the changes to appear in a regular browser window. But was talking about an incognito window (on Chrome. It has other names in other browsers). In an incognito window it usually takes about 5-15 minutes for most zoom levels to update (for coastlines 0,5-48 hours).
Some of the changes have now started to appear on the map but only in the really close zoom levels.
I rebuilt part of the airport. What do you think? (I edited only few minutes ago so you may not see all the changes)
Thanks for your feedback! I will edit the airport to be more realistic.
I still think the location is ok. It takes 21 minutes to drive from city center to airport by car. There is also a fast train connection from the terminal to the central railway station. In my home town Helsinki (the capital of Finland) it takes longer to get from city center to the airport even though the airport is a little closer to the city center. I kind of don’t want the airport to be in the middle of the city.
For example Helsinki is full of real footways in OSM. I think you can decide, how you like to map. I think many places don’t have footways mapped because major things are mapped first and people assume that the footways exist anyway.
Personally, I have decided to map footways.
Welcome to OGF! Here are two things that I noticed:
I think the subway should be in a tunnel. Now it is over the ground which might cause some problems. (tag tunnel=yes)
There seems to be quite many intersections with more than four directions. They do exist in real world but I think there are too many intersections like that.
Thanks for the feedback. Good points. There are some things that might explain some of them.
The railway has been built for the train factory and thus they have built a station there too. The factory is located there because the climate is colder there than in the Southern part of Eelanti. That way they can test trains in more extreme climate. In Finland (where I live) there are railways in some really rural areas with stations that aren’t in use anymore. There is still quite a lot of traffic in Peräkylä as there are two big factories and an area for military/army use. I know that the station building may be a little too big and will think about what I will do to make it more realistic.
The central part is more urban than it probably should. The outer parts will have smaller houses. I think the village has been growing lately and the central area has been partly rebuilt. That would explain the thing at least partially. The shopping mall is too big and I will try to make it more realistic.
Thanks for the comments! Any opinions on Peräkylä?
Sarepava: I will mention that but I will map a lot more before I write a lot to the wiki.
zhenkang: The expressway is a loop because i think there will be a big natural area in the middle of Eelanti with only few people living there. I will be adding more detail to the expressway in the future but I think the loop will be there in a way or another.
