Here are my slides from my Remap-A-Tron talk at the amazing State Of The Map US conference from which I just returned. Without any context this is going to make very little sense, but for those of you who have seen Pulp Fiction more than a couple of times, it may still be worth a few minutes of your time. I will follow up with a more insightful post about this and SOTM soon.
In my talk at State Of The Map 2011, I introduced a few new concepts relating to the local quality of OpenStreetMap data and its contributor community:
- The Community Scorecard which is a concise way to summarize the activity of a local OpenStreetMap community
- Data Temperature attempts to capture the ‘warmth’ of a local community in one easily interpretable figure
- The Temperature Map captures some of the most relevant metrics for way features, the age of the last update and the number of versions, in an abstracted image of the study area.
If you missed my session at SOTM11, here‘s its page on the OpenStreetMap wiki, with links to all relevant resources.
