Organic Maps: Свежие новости и обновления от нашей команды

A short announcement before the details about the September Organic Maps release. We are looking for volunteers to help us in different areas. A lot of interesting and challenging work (did you already check 1800+ issues on Github? 💪) awaits on the open-source, community-built road to the best, fastest 🚀, easy-to-use 👴 👵 🧒, and privacy-focused maps. Want to help us with the app and website development, marketing, PR, financing, user support, or in any other way? Say [email protected].

If we get enough money, we can significantly speed up the development by hiring a full-time team and rewarding the most active contributors. If we get more users, we get more donations. Donate and spread the word 💸! Let's call it Organic Crowdfunding 💰

Several new features are available in the September update. You can easily measure distance and build straight-line routes in the same way as you are building other routes, and even simpler, with a single tap! We called it Helicopter Routing but then decided to rename into the Ruler to avoid confusion. Another new Android feature is background voice directions. Now Organic Maps can talk with you from your pocket 🙂

Please vote for us again on HackerNews!

The referenced article provides an interesting perspective on Organic Maps from a user in the US.

The OSM data issue mentioned in the article should be fixed in the upcoming Organic Maps update. Stay tuned!

We are looking for someone (or for a team) experienced with zola (or hugo) static website generators to improve our current website for mobiles and desktops. There are many tasks there from redesign to adding new sections, languages and translations. Please let us know if you are interested at [email protected]

The source code of the current website is available on Github.

Planned improvements are also there in the issues list, we will update it with more details soon.

… OpenStreetMap is well known by the geospatial community, but does the average person use it? To help answer this question this week Ed welcomes Roman Tsisyk to the podcast. Roman, a co-founder of Organic Maps, the most widely used consumer-facing, OSM-based mapping service. In their discussion, Ed and Roman explain the differences users experience with Google Maps vs OSM and discuss how the two can work together. Organic Maps is a privacy-focused, open-source fork of app. The offline feature makes it particularly convenient for travellers, hikers, and cyclists. Listen as Roman explains how he and his team use the power of community to keep evolving their maps, and why having "regular people" contribute to mapping is so important.

GPX import is now supported in Organic Maps! You don't need to convert your GPX tracks into KML anymore.

Many thanks to @cyber-toad, who patiently fixed all our review comments, polished and finished the code started by dvdmrtnz. And, of course, kudos ❤️ to all our users, community, and contributors who support us in many different ways. We can build the best maps together!

Get Organic Maps in the App Store, Google Play, and Huawei AppGallery. The F-Droid build, as usual, fails, but we hope it will be fixed soon.

Мы подготовили для вас новое приложение и обновление картографических данных. Кроме того, в этом году Organic Maps получили 4 слота в программе Google Summer of Code 2023 для следующих функций:

  1. Android Auto.
  2. Улучшенный пользовательский интерфейс для мобильных и настольных компьютеров Linux, Mac и Windows (Windows все еще требует доработки напильником для сборки и запуска OM).
  3. Парсер Википедии для получения свежих статей (сейчас мы используем устаревший дамп по состоянию на весну 2022 года).
  4. Улучшенная система стилизации карты для поддержки отдельных стилей для вело и пешего туризма, и не только.

Мы надеемся, что наши студенты справятся с поставленными задачами в этом году и сделают Organic Maps лучше.

Как всегда, пожалуйста, сообщайте нам об ошибках и проблемах в приложении, а также исправляйте все проблемы, связанные с картами, на

We are looking for volunteers who can help us to prepare and translate Whats New for upcoming releases for all app stores and for our website on a more or less regular basis. Or for any other ways to help us speed up the translation process not only for Whats New, but also for other texts. Any ideas and help are appreciated! Want to peek at the full list of changes?

The full list of languages is available here for Android and here for iOS. We can add all languages to our website (its other pages are translated now using Weblate).

Drop us an email if you are interested at [email protected]

Congratulations to the with 10M registered users! Organic Maps would not be possible without OSM.

Is there anyone speaking Hindi, who can help with proof-reading the translations?

How are you planning your trips? Which tools, apps, or web services are you using? Please share it with us, and let's brainstorm how Organic Maps can be improved.

Мы поздравляем вас с Рождеством 🎅 и Новым годом 🎄! Лучший подарок для нас — это знать, что мы делаем что-то нужное и полезное. Встречайте наш маленький подарок 🎁 вам: новогодний релиз Organic Maps доступен в AppStore, Google Play, Huawei AppGallery и FDroid!

На данный момент на нашем GitHub]( более 1200 ошибок, которые надо исправить, и новых функций, которые хотелось бы реализовать. Многие из них направлены на улучшение приложения. Некоторые возможности более сложны и могут быть реализованы как отдельные, независимые открытые проекты. Например, фотографии мест и отзывы, база данных дорожного движения, сервис общественного транспорта, облачная синхронизация и резервное копирование, онлайн-карты, веб-редактор для планирования поездок, редактор стилей карт, путеводители, API/SDK для других приложений и т.д. Вы можете помочь финансово, либо учавствуя или даже возглавляя такой сложный проект!

Основная цель Organic Maps - создать открытую, быструю, безопасную и конфиденциальную альтернативу существующим проприетарным картам. Благодаря вашим пожертвованиям, помощи и поддержке мы сможем быстрее достичь этой цели, сохраняя приложение бесплатным. И если вы узнаете о каких-либо грантах, которые могут помочь в развитии Organic Maps, дайте нам знать.

🎇 🎈 🎉 🎊 🎄 🎆

Приятно осознавать, что то, что мы делаем, помогает людям. Organic Maps прекрасно подходит для разных активностей, в том числе для походов по горам. Если вам интересны Альпы, тогда можно обратиться к экспертам по этому вопросу: The Hiking Club. Ребята давно уже занимаются подготовкой и планированием длительных путешествий по Альпам. Теперь The Hiking Club рекомендует всем своим клиентам Organic Maps. И это здорово, потому что самое важное в горах — не заблудиться, и сэкономить заряд батареи вашего устройства. А здесь мы (по нашему скромному мнению 😉) лучшие!

Импортировать метки и треки в Organic Maps очень просто. Выберите KML или KMZ файл (заархивированный с помощью zip KML), затем "Открыть с помощью..." и выберите приложение Organic Maps. Или, для Android, вы можете выбрать "Импортировать метки" в диалоге Меток, а затем выбрать диск или папку с вашими KML/KMZ. Кстати, поддержку формата GPX мы тоже планируем добавить.

В будущем мы хотим сделать планирование маршрутов ещё более удобным. Следите за нашими новостями и обновлениями, чтобы быть в курсе. И ещё раз спасибо всем, кто поддерживает наше бесплатное приложение и нашу небольшую команду энтузиастов словами, делами и пожертвованиями!

There are already many requests from users to add public transport support. It would be great to start using that existing OpenStreetMap data and add/update transport schedules directly from the app. For anyone interested to volunteer, there is also a good starting point here.

To import bookmarks from MapsMe and other apps which support KML/KMZ on Android, open Bookmarks menu from the bottom toolbar and press Import button.

Automated import from iOS is not technically possible, so here is a small guide

Android 5 support, OSM login, bookmarks export, and some other fixes are already in review, as the CarPlay for iOS. Please be patient, or install the latest betas.
