Ranking list. Position of Nepal

This page: https://osmstats.neis-one.org/?item=cou … ntry=Nepal shows ranking position of Nepal worldwide. Today it is nr 1 worldwide, the same yesterday and two days before. 6,5 and 4 days before it was position 3.

When we all work hard, we can keep probably one of 10 first position for longer time.
So, please, don´t stop mapping, even if the flood area is finally mapped. Some disasters can always happen even in other parts of Nepal.

http://www.mopit.gov.np/# is already using OSM. Great success of you all.

Re: Ranking list. Position of Nepal

Today nr 1. in created nodes. The number of mapper is smaller but they do a lot of work.

Re: Ranking list. Position of Nepal

Today, 26.08.2017 Nepal is again nr. 1 worldwide in created nodes!

1    Nepal         234356    
2    Indonesia         150503    
3    United States    124170   

No one coutry with such mapping speed!
I'm especially proud, because nr 9 in mapping ranking in Nepal is one girl!
Nisha Adhikari!
And the first Nepali in ranking list is with nr. 4 ... Pratixa.
Also a woman (I'm writing it for fereigners, they don't know nepali names).

Under first 10 mappers last 3 months are: two nepali girls and two nepali boys.
That's really amazing.

Imagine: worldwide only 3% of girls are doing mapping. I don't know an other country around whole world with such results like in Nepal. I feel really proud about you!

Re: Ranking list. Position of Nepal

Some updates. Yestrday Nepal was Nr. 3 worldwide regarding mapped elements, today again Nr.1. So, please stay fighting, do mapping. smile
I wish to say thank you for two mappers they do nowadays a lot for Nepal:
http://hdyc.neis-one.org/?piaco_dk
and
http://hdyc.neis-one.org/?GeoFrizz

Very, very fast going up in the ranking list is user http://hdyc.neis-one.org/?W%C5%82adys%C5%82aw%20Komorek
I assume, he will be in some days mapper nr 1 in ranking list.
In total leading is still our great friend Heinz_V.

For me personally, Nepal is since 26.08.2017 nr. 1 country regarding number of mapper elements. Nr. 2 is Poland nr. 3 Germany.

I have 'noticed' that Heinz_V , a waterway as stream, and a highway (there in Nepal) as residential tagged ... wouldn't it be better (there in Nepal) to tag (not all, but the most of those) as highway = 'unclassified, and waterway = 'river' ?

I mailed him this topic, and got an answer ;

Hello Henke54 You didn't quote special cases where I tagged wrong in your opinion. Since I mapped really a lot in Nepal, I ca answer onl generally. 1) highway=residential streets in residential area should be residential, if they don't have more importance (District roads with ref-tag...) . Normally the Nepali mappers have problems in tagging the road classification.
    2) waterways: the definiton if river/stream is quite unclear within OSM. My opinion : a waterway which has a width less than 5m should be tagged as a stream.

If I made errors, feel free to make corrections

Heinz

I mailed him back ;

Hi Heinz,
about highway=residential ;
JOSM gives a 'warning' on residential tagged highways if they there are no adress numbers are 'involved' ... and it is 'easier' for mapping , if one maps an area for first time ... then one has no 'restrictions' for choosing between the several classifications ( road/tertiary/secondary/path/track etc... )
Afterwards, if more higher resolution and/or better info is available, one can then tagging more 'accurate' ... just my 2 cents ... ;-)

about waterways ;
https://lists.openstreetmap.org/piperma … 33036.html
https://forum.openstreetmap.org/viewtop … 68#p659468



the commonly accepted rule for OpenStreetMap is that a stream can be jumped across by an active, able-bodied person

so, my thought about that is ; =>

ditch   :    width < 1 meter

stream :   width 1 - 3 meter

river   :     width > 3 meter

Re: Ranking list. Position of Nepal

Dear friends, I would allow me th have an opinion in between:
Regardng waterways:
If there is such widely accepted regulation, so please try to adapt it in cases they are obvious.
This could be difficult without local knowledge but probably possible.
Generally tagging is, I assume, less relevant than the fact of collecting geometry. Retgging is esy done.
I´m confrontated with doubts regaring properly tagging every day I do mapping in Nepal.

Regarding residential streets. Due to the fact, that 90% of Nepal don´t have house numbers, we should, given that we are hearing what JOSM says, completely stom using of cathegory highway=residential. The programmers, they wrote JOSM never have been in Nepal or other similar countries, so I woul sty with mapping of cathegory residential when around are houses.

There is also an other important reon for using residential: Nepa dont´t have speed signs only seldom. Therefore is changing of street cathegory the only possible solution to give warning to the driver in navigation system.

Re: Ranking list. Position of Nepal

I would like to point out at the ways to one or two buildings.
I would recommend tagging them as "highway=service" not "highway=residential".
See https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag … %3Dservice

Re: Ranking list. Position of Nepal

Tagging of highway=service in villages or small cities please also with service=alley.
This is common in small areas and often used in other countries in Asia.
This tagging is used in Asia everywhere when the width of the way doesn´t allow to drive through with one car.
https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:service%3Dalley
This page is talking about (european) settlements only, because nobody from Asia was active in enhancing wiki. This should be done, so please add your comments there: https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tal … ce%3Dalley
The reasen is easy:
Such small ways are not https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag … ing_street (here add an example from Nepal as well my dear friends, make just one picture from Kathmandu, we need it!) nor https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag … esidential


BTW.: Today Nepal is again Nr. 1 in number of added elements worldwide.

Here is picture of alley in Kathmandu ->

and here is definition of alley in wikipedia ->
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alley

there is also a word  'back alley' (but in some countries , it has a 'negative meaning' )

Re: Ranking list. Position of Nepal

Today Nepal is nr. 2 after Brazil (probably heavy data import) but the difference between nr 2 and nr 3 wasn't big.

Dear henke54. Good examples. Could you add examples with comment in https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Nepal/Roads

Thank you in advance! Marek

Re: Ranking list. Position of Nepal

The OSM data of all Nepal are not far away from 500 MB (457 MB):

Only India, China and Indonesia are bigger.

For instance: all China is only.. 614 MB

Re: Ranking list. Position of Nepal

Wow, our Pratichhya is now nr 2 in Nepal in total ranking list, probably in some days or weeks nr 1!
To do more mapping than Władysław Komorek is impossible to the most mapper. Respect.
She is also nr 463 in total maper ranking list worldwide: Being in first 500 is not easy.

Congratulations!

In fact Pratixa is number one...because most of my edtions, filling empty areas, are created in half-automatic way.
Congratulations, big respect Pratichhya for your work smile
