HeiGIT will present its software “ohsome quality analyst” (OQT) at the FOSSGIS Conference in Berlin this week. In the demo session, Benjamin Herfort will show the numerous possibilities of the tool and how everyone can use OQT to evaluate completeness, level of detail, currentness of OSM data and more in just a few steps. Join him on Thursday 16th at 9am.

OpenStreetMap is constantly evolving. New objects are added, existing ones are edited, and some data gets deleted. HeiGIT offers various tools to analyze OSM data and how they change over time. The ohsome quality analyst is one of those. It is based on one simple question: How can we better assess the quality of OSM data? With the help of selected use cases such as buildings in Berlin, we want to show how to assess the quality of OSM data, and which quality aspects are important for different scenarios. We will also discuss various indicators of data quality and evaluate their strengths and weaknesses.

Examples from the session will be prepared for your own use cases and made available in Python (jupyter notebooks).
