For people who want to make unique pictures of landscape. (Note: Not advertisement) about 1 year ago

the AI has been tested and is trained enough to make some basic satellite images based on OGF map (and other drawins, lol i literally made a forest shaped as some random character with lakes inside and it still looks fine). not sure how i can release it publicly yet, as i had to host it on google colaboratory and you can't seem to remotely access it from ex. another website

but if you want you can message me with a location and i can post the result (note: not all of it will be taken properly as it has to be a zoom at least 500m, and the AI only makes 512x512 images anyway)

@MrManny referring to your comment

  1. help is apperciated, especially adding more data (i will make some sort of a tutorial how to do it properly)

  2. lack of detail will probably result in more wonky images, i tried comparing the images with less and more detail and the ones with more detail simply had less noticeable bugs/inaccuracies, making the image nicer. i will likely test the GAN on several OGF images and see the diffrent results

as of now, it can generate fairly mediocore stuff from sketches, maybe i'll yet add some data to train on and train it even more.

important thing to note is that unlike GauGAN, the more detail the better the result. the biggest con right now is the fact the GAN still has troubles with generating good-looking residental area. Due to mask limitations i had to merge several things such as city area and residental area, though for smaller towns you can use regular buildings and it does the job better.

old topic, but i recently built my own GAN based on the same resources NVIDIA GauGAN uses. it is trained on satellite imagery, though it doesn't have enough data and training. once i am satisfied enough with the results i may post them in a separate diary entry

large-scale editing over 1 year ago

use JOSM. i do small edits (cities/towns/villages) in iD and bigger edits/natural edits (rivers, mountains, etc) in JOSM

Histor style: overhaul based on standard style? over 1 year ago

well, i'm kind of hyped for the "OGF style", if it will get released

im back over 1 year ago

yes, map

As i know, there's not a public GAN which could do that. I might try learning how to code a GAN, if we get something, we could add a new layer to the map!

happy new year to you aswell!

OpenGeofiction Geographic Map over 1 year ago

just for fun, made a demo on my wiki sandbox (4 images)

let's move that onto messages maybe

OpenGeofiction Geographic Map over 1 year ago

but a OGF:Landscape article could be cool, maybe as a community sandbox where people would add up their locations

OpenGeofiction Geographic Map over 1 year ago

No, like i actually could program a website demo since my main hobby is programming. But yea i'll upload them onto my site in a moment so you can view them.

OpenGeofiction Geographic Map over 1 year ago

it was me who wrote that, i actually was about to make a short demo in an area, but the AI isn't really great with making houses or roads, so it would work out best with natural features. i made around 15 images, each one in diffrent location to check how well it would ressemble the OGF world. if you want me to upload them, tell me

Merry Christmas! A question: How can we monetize geofiction? over 1 year ago

Selling OGF? Seriously? Isn't OGF our hobby because it is ''Open''GeoFiction? Incase we sold it and monetize it, OGF would lose its "O" in it. Anyway, imagine OGF with at least constant ads. At least, because it could be worse, such as having to pay in order to place some land. See? It would lose its aspect, being creative. Being completly free is why i love OGF, aswell as being able to map anything and describe it or the fact it is a small website with small amount of users (which makes territories perfectly enough for each user, even twice). In case we monetized it, the last aspect would also be probably gone, which would lead to not enough territories and either making tons of collaborative ones or hundreds of small territories. Anyway, Merry Christmas, hope OGF stays the way it currently is.

using this we can make OGF Street View xD

Can't upload changes over 1 year ago

Could be a shadow ban maybe.

City display problem over 1 year ago

Well, the second city has been made much later, but yea i noticed that it stopped appearing even more since i added it, so possibly the problem is the state name. Didn't really realize it, but i really want to keep my city where it is, especially since i already mapped lakes and rivers, i guess i'm just gonna make the fort vinlex a town, and keep okeravi like this. Thanks for support.

A week ago, i joined and i started making these two small islands. over 1 year ago

I plan on requesting an island nation, however more of inspired by Greece, this island was just my attempt of creating my first territory.
