Orphaned non-free image File:WSTR logo, 1995.png[edit]


Thanks for uploading File:WSTR logo, 1995.png. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described in section F5 of the criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. --B-bot (talk) 17:40, 1 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Call for presentations for WCNA 2022 and Mapping USA[edit]

WikiConference North America 2022 logo.png
Call for presentations for WikiConference North America 2022 and OpenStreetMap US's Mapping USA

This is a call for presentations by EOD, Sunday, October 15, for WikiConference North America (Nov 11-13), held jointly with OpenStreetMap US's Mapping USA. We encourage you to please submit your Wikipedia and Wikimedia proposals at Wikiconference:2022/Submissions or OpenStreetMap US proposals at Call for Proposals: WikiConference North America + Mapping USA. We are sending this mass message to you because we deduced that you may be in North America and interested in maps in Wikimedia or Wikipedia, OpenStreetMap, or OpenHistoricalMaps. We are looking for lightning talks in particular on Friday, Nov 11. Some suggestions:

  • Cultural similarities and differences, for instance OpenStreetMap and Wikivoyage (map and describe what you know) versus Wikipedia (verify with citations)
  • Type of licensing for each project and how they differ: OpenStreetMap, Commons, Wikidata, and Wikipedia
  • The flow of information from one project into another, and how maps are generated
  • How OpenHistoricalMap works and possible interactions with Wikimedia projects
  • Your ideas!

Registration is open for WCNA 2022 and Mapping USA[edit]

WikiConference North America 2022 logo.png
WikiConference North America 2022 will be virtual, November 11-13. We will hold it jointly with OpenStreetMap US's Mapping USA. Our theme this year is open knowledge allies.

Registration is now open here! Please register by the 10th so that we can set everyone up online on our platform. Like last year, we are planning on using Hopin.

Our schedule is will be finalized and available in the next few days. We have an exciting line-up of sessions related to Wikimedia, OpenStreetMap, and the intersection of the two. Stay tuned!

Local meet-ups will occur in Indianapolis and New York City - if you are available and interested in attending either of these, you can find more details here.

If you want to connect with other participants or have questions, please join our Telegram channel here.

Thank you Dolotta! Minh Nguyễn 💬 00:15, 12 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]


I wanted to say hello, and say thanks for the intro to OHM. Next year, when I (should) have some more time, would like to try contributing to that project. Guettarda (talk) 21:55, 13 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

OSM graph sparql querying[edit]

Thank you so much for presenting at the WikiConference! I am excited to see that there is another community that uses SPARQL as enthusiastically as we do. I would like to know if you have been experiencing issues with the endpoint such as query timeouts, and whether you would be interested in a crossover graph that includes both Wikidata and OSM? (You can do this currently with linked data fragments, as I understand, but it's a bit slow.) Harej (talk) 19:59, 14 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Harej: Wikidata–OSM queries would be the "killer app" for Wikidata and Wikibase within the OSM project. There's no shortage of other ways to query OSM data alone (Overpass, Ohsome, and AWS to name a few), but none of these options lets us answer bigger questions about the world. Sophox originally started out with a crossover graph that included both Wikidata and OSM. However, for performance reasons, Yurik had to remove Wikidata in favor of federation. As you can see from Sophox's federated query examples, it's often necessary to disable the query optimizer just to get the running time under control.

Note that Sophox currently isn't in great shape: it's missing a significant share of triples, mostly affecting OSM data but also some data coming from the OSM Wiki's Wikibase instance. [1][2] Yuri believes this may be related to memory constraints and migrating from Google Cloud back to dedicated hardware would fix this serious regression. Due to this issue, I don't think people have been making very much use of Sophox recently, so the query timeouts haven't been top of mind. If you know of anything that would help, technically or otherwise, I think that would be strategically important for continued collaboration between Wikidata and OSM. Already the state of Sophox is being used (unfairly) as an argument to dismantle the integration we do currently have with Wikibase [3], but there has been a lot of enthusiasm for SPARQL in the past, from people who see its promise.

Mxn, does OpenStreetMap make a turtle dump available of its data? Alternatively, can you recommend a process for transforming data from the regular dump for use in a graph database? Harej (talk) 01:47, 15 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Harej: OSM dumps and regional extracts are available in several formats but not Turtle. (So that's what .ttl stands for!) osm2rdf transforms an OSM PBF into a Turtle file according to Sophox's schema. There's also another, more obscure SPARQL endpoint for OSM, LinkedGeoData, that uses a different schema. Minh Nguyễn 💬 03:12, 15 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Sophox indeed needs to be migrated to the new server. I need $150/month to run it, and set up a 501c(3) via OpenCollective for that. Once I have enough for the first two months, I will migrate Sophox to the new hardware, bring it up to date, etc. Also, would be awesome to get more developer help with maintaining it at GitHub. Thanks! --Yurik (talk) 05:07, 16 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

CU request[edit]

Hey, can you help with the request here? I'm traveling for the month and I have some COI reservations so it's inappropriate for me to do the check. DHN (talk) 18:43, 16 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
