Wille Marcel Lima Malheiro
Started contributing to OpenStreetMap in 2010 and is a GIS developer since 2014. Has worked with most aspects of GIS, like satellite imagery, web map applications, databases, but is specialist on osm tools and designing REST APIs. Creator of OSMCha, a tool that helps the OSM community to review and validate the changesets, and member of the HOT Tech Team.
The Tasking Manager is OpenStreetMap’s most used software tool to organize mapathons, community mapping initiatives and professional mapping teams. Over the last year it has been developed further significantly. This talk will give an update on the newest developments and the emerging community around the application.
Protecting OpenStreetMap is a continuous process performed by Mapbox to secure maps from displaying erroneous edits. Any edits that raise suspicion are flagged in OSMCha, an open service that allows to check low-quality changes that are made by the members of the OSM project in a shared database. This not only helps to report our findings to the community but examine them in aggregate and draw conclusions to improve our data quality processes.
