> Hi,
> Osmose QA is a Quality Assurance tool. It detects and reports errors based
> on more than 200 rulesets.
> http://osmose.openstreetmap.fr
> http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Osmose
> We are glad to announce the new North American coverage of Osmose QA.
> After Africa and Antarctica, America is the last fully covered continent.
> This is possible because of interest of MapBox on data quality and their
> sponsorship of Osmose QA project through OpenStreetMap-France with € 2.000
> donation. This allowed us to rent a new server for a couple of years to run
> the North America analysis.
> After the new active areas are in place, we checked the results and
> adjusted the analysers according to local mapping usages. Nevertheless we
> are still open to comments (and code) to improve the quality of errors
> detection.
> Setting up quality analyser in a new area always come up with lot of
> errors detected - and some errors coming from noisy imports. Do not
> discourage yourself by the quantity of errors. In Osmose QA you can filter
> errors by severity, categories, topics and so on. You can look up at errors
> on objects where your are the last editor. You can also show errors list,
> exports and graph over time.
> We plan to rent a second server and try to finish Europe coverage. Then it
> will miss large part of Asia and Oceania to cover the world.
> Donations are welcome to extend Osmose QA coverage on the last missing
> continents.
> The Osmose QA team.
