Strava: Cómo usamos OpenStreetMap

En la última conferencia "Estado del Mapa EEUU" la gente de ‪#‎Strava‬ presentó: Cómo ellos usan ‪#‎OpenStreetMap‬ y presentaron su herramienta de "auto-dibujo geométrico" integrada al editor iD. Ver el vídeo ->

Strava es un servicio que registra actividades deportivas mediante el uso del GPS en algún dispositivo móvil. Tienen millones de trazas GPS según la actividad deportiva. Pudiendo ser estas: correr, caminar, senderismo, paseo bicicleta, nadar, esquí, patín, surfing, y otros más.

Presentaron una versión del editor iD que integra sus trazas GPS, y ayuda a mejorar la precisión de las vías trazadas o las nuevas. Al parecer usan un algoritmo que obtiene el promedio de las trazas GPS y la re-dibuja.

Está a prueba... falla con pocas trazas, añade muchos nodos, pero promete mucho!

Bolivia is amazing!

Another adventure with friends... rafting (grade 2) in town of Villa Tunari, Chapare, Cochabamba, Bolivia. Was 12km (1 hour) over the Espiritu Santo River that belongs to the Amazon River watershed.

Sometime we were able to enter the river, grab it the edge of the boat and feel "the force" of the river. Must have be deeper than 2 meters. Awesome!

Autumn Equinox (Southern Hemisphere) / Equinoccio de Otoño (Hemisferio Sur) 2014

An equinox occurs when when the plane of Earth's Equator passes the center of the Sun.

The word  equilux is used to mean a day on which the periods of daylight and night are equal. In Cochabamba, Bolivia... that day is 28.03.2014.

Article in spanish:


Un equinoccio se produce cuando cuando el plano del ecuador de la Tierra pasa por el centro del sol.

La palabra equilux se utiliza para referirse a un día en el que los períodos de luz del día y la noche son iguales. En Cochabamba, Bolivia ... ese día es 03.28.2014.
