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.
**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!
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!
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’ ?
Dear friends, I would allow me th have an opinion in between:
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.
Wow, our friend from Denmark piaco_dk is already de facto nr 2. in Nepal ranking list. (bdiscoe has his position because of lot deleted points, they are also “points” in the statistic).
Please be nr 1 piaco_dk.
