Thanks for sharing! I'm looking to learn how to edit OpenStreetMap in the best way possible as a beginner. I've been playing a lot with mapnik and got to the point to start rendering a local map soon. It turns out though that the local OpenStreetMap sucks. :P Time to fix it! :D Your videos are helping in this area already.

Great video training. The GPS time of day seems a bit obsessive.

hey, pretty good. thanks!

Thanks for your work (and sorry for my English) as for the previous

video. Would be nice to know how to scale the photo: I see in the

video you use a ruby script for that: I suppose you use imagemagick

(RMagick) but with what? Simple resize to ???x??? or a resample?

Other things: some devices embed in exif data gps (wgs84 and other

format) location is JOSM able to read this metadata?

Thanks again, keep up that good work!

It's so easy! Thank you: I'm now going to go and borrow my dad's GPS and head out on my bike!

Please keep making these things; it's really a good way to learn JOSM.

Educating the Open-source Community With Showmedo

Although as important as the software it supports, education and documentation are relatively neglected in the Open-source world. Coders love to code, and explaining how best to use or improve the software tends to be deferred or even sidelined.

At Showmedo we believe the community can play a vital role here and also say thanks for the tools and software that make our lives easier. If you have a piece of software you love or a programming langugage you are enthusiastic about, why not make a screencast showing others how to use it? All the stuff you wish you'd been told, the tips, tricks, insights that would have saved you time and frustration.

Screencasting is easier than you think, and we're happy to help you. You can emailus for advice or just use some of the how-to screencasts on the site. This screencasting learning-pathis a good place to start.

Kudos and Thanks for steve
