OSMTippek - A new OpenStreetMap help site

Posted by: Ferenc Veres on August 1, 2011 08:10:50 PM +00:00(4877 Reads)

Based on the RealProSite CMS, I've created a new Hungarian website where I write tutorials for editing OpenStreetMap the free wiki map of the world.

www.osmtippek.hu (Hungarian text)

The site mainly contains two type of articles.

  • tutorials for editing OpenSteetMap
  • short editing tips

I try to focus on actual tasks and problems and make tutorials fully functional, so any beginner interested in doing one of the possible mapping tasks can read the tutorial and at the end upload new objects to OSM.

In the works I have an article about mapping small towns using GPS, that I mapped during Arok Party (a c64 event).

Exisitng editors for text data DjVu files are quite limited, like for example DjVuSmooth. So I've implemented a new editor in JavaScript, that allows editing both the strucutre of the text (paragraphs, lines, words,...) and the coordinates of the text boxes by simply dragging with the mouse, features like create, delete, merge are also available.
