Quality Assurance

This talk offers a full introduction of OpenStreetMap QA tools and strategies.

I’ll start with a definition of QA in OpenStreetMap and then move onto simple QA with Notes and FIXME/fixme tags. This will be followed by an overview of a few of the QA programs available for OpenStreetMap, such as: OSM Inspector, keep right!, Unnamed Streets, BattleGrid and MapRoulette. Next, I’ll cover custom tiles for views of specific data sets, such as: Cycle Map, Transport, Humanitarian, OpenRailMap, OpenFireMap and the ITO World map collection. Lastly, I’ll discuss Overpass query (both stand alone and from a QGIS plug in), TIGER clean up, and JOSM editor validation.
