Am 8. und 9. Juni findet in Bern wieder die Messe GEOSummit statt. OpenStreetMap ist zwar nicht mit einem eigenen Stand vertreten, aber wir machen dieses Jahr wieder die Aktion, dass wir am GEOSummit wieder Karten aus OSM Daten rendern. Diese werden freundlicherweise von Canon (Schweiz) vor Ort gedruckt. Hier der Bereich, den wir an der Messe anbieten können:
Dieser Ausschnitt ist verfügbar zum Karten rendern am GEOSummit. Der hier gezeigte Stil ist OpenTopoMap.
Wir haben den OSM Standard, Swiss Style und auch OpenTopoMap Kartenstile im Angebot.
Wer nun eine schöne, A1 grosse, gedruckte OSM Karte haben möchte, soll doch am GEOSummit beim Stand A05 vorbeikommen. Da der GEOSummit Eintritt kostet, haben wir auch gratis Tickets abzugeben. Wer also eine gedruckte Karte möchte, und dafür ein Ticket benötigt, melde sich bitte bei uns. Der GEOSummit findet in der Bernexpo (Karte) statt.
Weiter werden am GEOSummit auch die druckfrischen A7 OSM-Flyer verteilt.
Aktive Mapper können gerne ein paar holen kommen.
Objects that were modified or created during the mapping party
Last Saturday, the yearly SOSM AGM and subsequent mapping party took place in St. Gallen. We elected Raphael as our new treasurer during the AGM, since Pascal stepped down from this position and whom we would like to thank again for his work. Philipp was elected as a new revisor to replace Raphael, and Roman as an additional assessor to the board, where he will mainly take care of doing more marketing. Apart from that, there were no further changes regarding the board or revisors. After the OSMF had accepted our application in the beginning of this year, we unanimously decided to sign the local chapters agreement. We will thus soon be in a regulated relationship with the global OSMF.
After a fine lunch, we split up the old town of St. Gallen between us and set out to collect addresses and POIs, and also to update existing data. Along the way, we were also able to enjoy the nice and springlike weather. Some of us met again in the late afternoon to digitise and further improve the collected data, and to talk about experiences and tips related to OpenStreetMap. A remaining, in the meantime rather small group finally went for a cosy dinner in a nearby restaurant to finish the day.
According to a rough estimation based on the Overpass-API, 58 objects have been deleted, 615 were modified and 716 newly added during the mapping party. However, at least Simon had added several buildings before the mapping party already, which are not part of these statistics.

There was a mapping workshop on 1st of November at BERNMOBIL, to map local Tram and Bus lines. This information should in the Future visualize the routes for passengers. We are of course happy that BERNMOBIL has decided to use OSM for this task. There was a good collaboration between experienced OSM mappers and the employees of the public transport company, who new the lines and stops very well.
Here an article in German from Fabio Walti, who organised this day: To the blog article (German)
As a thank you BERNMOBIL provided a very good lunch an refreshments, as well as a tour through the company and a towel to take home. Thank you very much for the good collaboration.
We held our annual general meeting at the restaurant Schützenhaus in Burgdorf this year. The associations activities of the last year were presented, mainly the new SOSM server and the services provided with it.
After (a good) lunch as announced we held a mapping party. Simon distributed printouts of the surrounding municipalities and their missing roads and off we went. After successfully collecting data many of the mappers met again at the Schützenhaus and added it to OSM after which we had dinner (participating in SOSM events is not good for your waistline :-)).
While we didn’t manage to get everything “green”, the situation around Burgdorf is substantially better now; with only a handful of street names missing in some of the municipalities.
