Zoomboingding,

This is reposted all the time and the answer has kept being: Pikmin Bloom. It’s F2P, you reveal the areas you physically visit and the rest of the map is grey. It’ll track your steps and location in the background, so all you have to do is have your phone on you.

majestic,

Any osm app with that feature?

MMNT,

Be the change you want to see in the world. …and send me the link when you do.

majestic,

Bruh :]

hakunawazo,

Everytime somebody of your family or friends is inside the known area there should be an alert: reinforcement has arrived.
Or an alert about new options if you unfog a new building like a restaurant.

ComradePorkRoll,

Stop giving Google ideas on how to track us even more.

RagingRobot,

They already have this data for most people. This could already be a thing

YES! I can’t use the GPS on my phone because of the data it collects

JungleJim,

Oh no, not a visual representation of data they already have as a matter of course by the very nature of a map app or GPS!

You know, I would really like to try this.

jetsetdorito,

You can see this in Waze if you open the map editor. you can only edit a certain radius around where you’ve been, so your editable area is like a fog of war.

Empricorn,

So… how do you open the map editor these days? I used Waze and added roads and stuff back in the day before Google bought it, but I just opened the app and can’t seem to get back into that “mode”. Sorry for the dumb question…

lledrtx,

Do you need to have used Waze? Or does it pull from my Google maps data?

Zoomboingding,

Play Pikmin Bloom. It does exactly this, and can track your step counts/location in the background.

SocialMediaRefugee,

I just want to be able to establish lodestones so I can tele to places

Dicska,

So Jäger bombs.

AgentGrimstone,

My map would look really sad

Everyone in this thread should try geocaching! It is really fun

InternetCitizen2,

Saving for later

yhvr,

It’s not exactly the same, but I can vouch for StreetComplete being an incredibly good/similar game. You walk around the real world, and the app points out missing data in OpenStreetMap that you can fill in easily. You get the dopamine of a number going up, help dethrone proprietary map dominamce, and get some good excercise in in the process.

Burninator05,

Up is exactly the direction I like numbers to go!

aidan,

You want the murder rate number to go up?!??

bingbong,
knexcar,

Is it on iPhone too? I only see an Android version.

yhvr,

StreetComplete is Android only, but last I heard Go Map!! for iOS was trying to add a similar “quest” functionality to that found in SC.

UnrepententProcrastinator,

Is the map data federated?

SoaringDE,

It’s a central server i believe.

Knusper,

Well, it’s dumb data, so we don’t speak of federation (which happens between services), but basically yes.

Anyone can download the data and the TL;DR for your right to using the data is:

You are free to copy, distribute, transmit and adapt our data, as long as you credit OpenStreetMap and its contributors.

As a result, there are also many servers which mirror the data, i.e. provide a separate copy you can download, which is effectively like federation.

caesaravgvstvs,

Uhhh this is fun!

whereBeWaldo, (edited )

Did this dude fast travel? Like why are there separated clear areas on the bottom left and bottom right?

whaleross,
@whaleross@lemmy.world avatar

What are subways?

RQG,
@RQG@lemmy.world avatar

Disguised loading screens?

whereBeWaldo,

Whoa didn’t know the map was layered, so the subway opens up the underground layer?

whaleross,
@whaleross@lemmy.world avatar

Yes, with secret missions and drugs and hookers. Tunnel snakes rule!

CascadianGiraffe,

Gotta hold the map in your off-hand while traveling or it won’t autocomplete

whereBeWaldo,

Rookie mistake

Wonder_Wandering,

Ok this, but on geoguessr would be fire

FuryMaker,

Morrowind flashbacks…

Matriks404,

I had an idea where I would walk in a radius of few kilometers and walk on every street, etc. I wonder how long would it take, lol.

Someone make an app for that :P

Serisar,

There you go (not mine): www.everystreetchallenge.com or citystrides.com

CityStrides! It gets very confused if you don’t actually live in a city, ours wants us to complete our entire county, but it’s still fun anyway.
