Squirrel wishlist 2020: Tell us what you need from Journocode

Hey squirrel friends!

We’re in the process of reorganizing Journocode. Big announcements are coming soon – stay tuned! Unfortunately, that means that this year, we didn’t get around to making our Journocode DDJ Advent Calendar. But we still want to give you something. So this year, you get to make a wishlist: What do you want from Journocode? More workshops, more tutorials, specific topics you’re interested in? We’d love to hear from all of you.

Extracting geodata from OpenStreetMap with Osmfilter

Extracting geodata from OpenStreetMap with Osmfilter

A guest post by Hans Hack

When working on map related projects, I often need specific geographical data from OpenStreetMap (OSM) from a certain area. For a recent project of mine, I needed all the roads in Germany in a useful format so I can work with them in a GIS program. So how do I do I get the data to work with? With a useful little program called Osmfilter.
