The Waterkeringpad is a walking route between Amsterdam Central Station and Huizen and consists of eight sections. Check all sections here and information. The route follows the dike along the former Zuiderzee now the IJ Lake and the Gooimeer. A unique experience, walking on the dike! Before 1500 the Diemerzeedijk between Maxis and Muiden was made from clay and construction waste. From mid-fifteenth century, the old sea wall was a retaining wall of wooden poles. Between 1732 and 1744 it was replaced by a stone slope which could better absorb the powerful waves. The Waterkeringpad is a 36 kilometer long trail. We are walking section no.6 from Naarden to Oud Valkeveen. Between Laren and Huizen is the nature reserve Naarder Eng located. Here ends the Utrechtse Heuvelrug at the former Zuiderzee. The Naarder Eng is known as the best preserved arable land. There is much to discover. The fields grow cornflower, corn-cockle, field pansy, chamomile, poppy small, snapdragon and flax beak. Between the arable land is a Oak tree forest. That oak is used among other things used as firewood in smokehouses. Observe the edge well since the deer and rabbits are frequent here. The fungus is found on dead branches and stumps, almost exclusively of deciduous trees. In the water, the grass snake sometimes seen. Waterfowl are abundant. From the Eukenberg and Aalberg you can look far beyond the Gooimeer.


The Waterkeringpad is a walking route between Amsterdam Central Station and Huizen and consists of eight sections. It's a 36 kilometer trail and the dike offers beautiful views over the IJ Lake. There is much to discover. Between the arable land is a bird sanctuary with a beautiful beech tree forest. The ground is covered with fallen Autumn leaves.


Het Waterkeringpad is een wandelroute tussen Amsterdam Centraal Station en Huizen en bestaat uit acht trajecten. Bekijk hier al de trajecten en info. De route volgt de waterkering langs de voormalige Zuiderzee nu het IJmeer en het Gooimeer. Een unieke ervaring, wandelen over de dijk! Vóór 1500 bestond de Diemerzeedijk tussen Maxis en Muiden uit klei en bouwafval. Vanaf midden vijftiende eeuw kreeg de oude zeedijk een beschoeiing van houten palen. Tussen 1732 en 1744 maakte hout plaats voor een flauw aflopende stenen glooiing. Die kon krachtige golfslag beter opvangen. Het Waterkeringpad is een 36 kilometer lange wandelroute. Wij wandelen traject nr.6 van Naarden naar Oud Valkeveen. Op de kop van de stuwwal van Laren en Huizen ligt natuurgebied de Naarder Eng. Hier eindigt de Utrechtse Heuvelrug bij de voormalige Zuiderzee. De Naarder Eng is in beheer bij het Goois Natuurreservaat en staat bekend als de best bewaarde eng bouwland van het Gooi. Oud Valkeveen wordt omringd door vogel- en natuurreservaten. De Zwarte Specht, en de hoornaar insect zijn voorbeelden van relatief zeldzame dieren, die hier te vinden zijn. Er is veel te ontdekken. Op de akkers groeien korenbloem, bolderik, akkerviooltje, echte kamille, kleine klaproos, leeuwenbek en vlasbekje. Tussen het bouwland liggen restanten eikenhakhoutbos. Dat eikenhout is vroeger onder meer gebruikt als brandhout in visrokerijen. Let bij de bosrand goed op de reeën en konijnen die hier veelvuldig voorkomen. De zwam is te vinden op dode takken en stronken, vrijwel uitsluitend van loofbomen. Het pad richting Oud Valkeveen is een fraaie afwisselende wandeling langs grote beukenbomen, dennenbos, varens en langs het Gooimeer. Bij het water wordt de ringslang soms gezien. Watervogels zijn er in overvloed. Vanaf de Eukenberg en de Aalberg kunt u tot ver over het Gooimeer kijken.


A map of railways in France according to OpenSteetMap as of 10th Jan 2009. Do add notes on the image in places where you are aware of gaps in the network. We can update this image from time to time.

stumbled on this feature today when i loaded the wrong OS tile by mistake. At first i thought the ring of hills looked like an impact crater, but after a little digging, it turns out to be a caldera - the remains of a collapsed volcano.


how best to display it though?


The problem with the usual relief + hillshading approach is that you lose contrast in areas aligned with the "sun" (usually NW-SE), and in those areas in shadow.


Instead, I used SAGA GIS to do a Topographic Openness filter (Negative Openness) with a radius of 500m. This helps to enhance the contrast and detail in the various grooves, no matter what orientation. This was then plotted in QGIS (using a white to black ramp).


Used a couple of new features in 2.6


- use a grid in a different CRS. The map itself is OSGB, the grid WGS84.

- put ticks inside the frame, top and left edges only

map of road accidents using the police Stats19 data and OpenStreetMap.


#EDIT: replaced original monochrome with colour version.


Mapped and rendered in QGIS 2.4 using the Print Composer.


Method: buffered each accident site by 20m, and used "points in polygon" to count how many accidents happened within 20m of each site. Then used data driven properties to scale each accident site using log10("PNTCNT")*3, and Symbol Levels to make sure the blackspots are shown on top.


End result is similar to Heatmap, but looks better when zoomed in IMO. Best viewed Large or Original sizes.

The aim of this map is to highlight the geometry and hierarchy of the road layout.

An early preview of some advanced mapping features I'm working on for Maperitive. The map shows a complex set of roads and how all of the road connections are rendered correctly, without any unwanted artifacts.


The map area and style was shamelessly stolen from

Robert is headed to Haiti as part of the Humanitarian OpenStreetMap team to work with UN agencies, local and international NGOs, and the Haitian government train them on using OpenStreetMaps in the humanitarian response and recovery, find out how to make better meet their needs on the ground, and increase local participation in making these maps better and more useful. He's bringing equipment to set them up so they have everything they need to work with OSM.
