I see the city Dresden Germany in the citydB. I ran there some streets a few years ago. I don’t see myself in the runners list. Is that because the sync is still looking for runs of people matching the streets of a new imported city?
I ran the code that should have marked everyone’s progress … I’ll take another look today.
So I think I figured out a way to do this.
If a city exists only as a node, a new “relation” needs to be created in OSM. That relation needs to be named the same as the city/node and the way OSM relations work is they have other OSM objects as “members” The node, as well as a closed set of ways that make up the border need to be in the relation. As for how to tag them so OSM looks at them correctly, I just cheated and copied the next town over when I tried it with one.
added a city last weekend, I’m new to all of this city strides stuff, wondering how long it generally takes to get one added to city strides? thank you!
After it’s added to my Missing/Broken Cities Tracker, it’s just up to me to actually look in there and do the work.
Oh ok gotcha, well I added ellensburg, was there is open streets data
Hello, I have added Kenilworth, Warwickshire, UK to the missing/broken cities tracker. I hope you can add this the system. So I can run my home town.
Thanks for posting - I have a recurring task each month to add more cities/countries, but sometimes I need to be reminded. I’ve got another batch of 18 cities going in now, Kenilworth included.
Amazing thanks for updating it so quickly!
@JamesChevalier Do you mind to add
Belfast, Northern Ireland and Belgrade, Serbia
@JamesChevalier I added Howth (Sutton) Ireland to that spreadsheet as well. Hoping that will be added soon! Thank you for all you do. I’m totally obsessed with progressing streets/cities.
There are a couple usable Howths (there needs to be a boundary, it cannot be a single node) - https://nominatim.openstreetmap.org/ui/search.html?q=howth+ireland
Looks like it could be any one of these:
@JamesChevalier I’m honestly not sure what the boundaries of Howth are. I’m visiting on vacation and Google maps is unclear. The third option seems like the best?
I just added Ponta Delgada in the Azores (Portugal) to the list. It’s just a nice-to-have, but would be a cherry on top of my upcoming vacation there. Thanks, James!
Wondering if I should add everything in the Azores at:
…admin_level 7 (visit overpass turbo and click the top left “Run” for an interactive list)
…or admin_level 8 (visit overpass turbo and click the top left “Run” for an interactive list)
// @kevincharlespels Does one look better than the other to you?
Oh man, it’s hard to say since I haven’t been to the Azores to run yet…I would assume level 8 for most of that island (there are 8 other islands) but check the capital Ponta Delgada and maybe other denser areas (Vila Franca do Campo & Rabo do Peixe?). But I wouldn’t say this is any Portugal-specific insight since a) I haven’t been there and b) they are autonomous governing units so that may affect how they divide administrative units.
Ugh, naturally there are several options…
- Relation: Ponta Delgada (7540361) | OpenStreetMap level 7
- Relation: Ponta Delgada (São José) (7540327) | OpenStreetMap level 8
- Relation: Ponta Delgada (São Sebastião) (7540328) | OpenStreetMap level 8
- Relation: Ponta Delgada (São Pedro) (7540326) | OpenStreetMap level 8
- Relation: Ponta Delgada (8523859) | OpenStreetMap census
Vila Franca do Campo
- Relation: Vila Franca do Campo (7540356) | OpenStreetMap level 7
- Relation: Vila Franca do Campo (São Miguel) (7540290) | OpenStreetMap level 8
- Relation: Vila Franca do Campo (São Pedro) (7540289) | OpenStreetMap level 8
Rabo de Peixe
- Relation: Rabo de Peixe (7540301) | OpenStreetMap level 8
- Relation: Rabo de Peixe (8523873) | OpenStreetMap census
Based on some notes in Ponta Delgada - Wikipedia I don’t think I’m any closer to a decision.
It describes Ponta Delgada as a concelho (which would make it a region in CityStrides), which conflicts with my initial idea of adding Azores as the region
Ponta Delgada (Portuguese pronunciation: [ˈpõtɐ ðɛlˈɣaðɐ] (listen); lit. ‘“Thin Cape”’) is the largest municipality (concelho ) and economic capital of the Autonomous Region of the Azores in Portugal.
And it describes admin level 7 in OSM:
The municipality of Ponta Delgada is one of the larger administrative divisions in the archipelago, extending from the center of the island to the western coast. Ponta Delgada is bordered on the northeast by the municipality of Ribeira Grande, and southeast by relatively new municipality of Lagoa.
Ah! It lists some parishes, which map to admin level 8.
Not to be confused with a traditional city, the city of Ponta Delgada has no legal jurisdiction or mayor, but the municipality of Ponta Delgada has an elected official, the Presidente da Câmara Municipal who administers and Assembleia Municipal , which is the representative council, while dispersed parish councils (and elected presidents) govern the localities that circle the western edge of São Miguel.
I just notice Madeira needs to be added to CityStrides as well & it looks like a similar situation
Its Wikipedia page is offering a helpful list of administrative divisions that will probably be applicable to Azores … It effectively boils the question down to:
Should the municipalities of Azores/Madeira exist in CityStrides, or should the parishes of Azores/Madeira exist in CityStrides?
In case this clarifies, concelho is more like city/county. The regions, at least for those listed on Portugal - CityStrides, are distritos, which are larger administrative units.
