Recently, I added a new category, which shows all heritage protected items (at least those, which are tagged correctly in OpenStreetMap). Additionally, I created a web-application which helps tagging heritage protected items in Austria (and Berlin, Germany). I blogged about this here.read more

Did you know, that OpenStreetMap and Wikimedia (Commons, Wikipedia, Wikidata, ...) work together? As you might know there are ways to link OpenStreetMap objects to Wikimedia objects (preferably with the wikidata tag, but wikipedia, image and wikimedia_commons are also ways to achieve that). OpenStreetBrowser integrates this and shows images and excerpts of Wikipedia articles in object details.
Recently, I blogged about mapping artwork and memorials with Wikimedia integration on the OpenStreetMap blog. I hope this motivates people, to add more Wikimedia links (and artwork, memorials and pictures thereof)!read more

The latest feature update brings links to tag listings of an object. There are a variety of tags which will be converted to links: first of all website, url, phone and similar, but also wikipedia, image and wikidata.

In some cases there are multiple possible links, which will be presented in a small popup to let you choose an appropriate provider (as you can see in the screenshot for the 'icao' tag).read more
