12017-07-20 15:54:52 UTCDaveF Hi
I'm adding NCN4 relation to the new roundabout. Were any cycle lanes included in the construction an were the feeder lanes as short as you've mapped them??
22017-07-20 18:11:29 UTCtrigpoint There are no cycle lanes, feeder lanes are short as mapped. They are traced from gps.
32017-07-20 19:33:11 UTCtrigpoint I was there last week. I have fixed it, and the Atlantic Coast Route, now to try to fix the bus routes and the slashed road names :)

I had added the roundabout whilst there, but the relations were too big for my laptop/mobile connection
12017-07-13 20:48:06 UTCDaveF Hi again
The two landuse=industrial areas you've added appear to overlap existing areas & stretch into land own by other companies or is public land. If you have additional data could you add it to existing objects.
22017-07-13 23:16:57 UTCndm School would ideally use multipolygon.

Nursing Home might not be a good match for a hospital -- there's a couple of different options documented in the wiki.
32017-07-15 13:20:05 UTCRowland Per the source, the pound for the port after per there OS openmap local data. Will take a look at the multi polygons.
42017-07-15 21:31:47 UTCDaveF I'm unclear what you mean. I've looked at the OS Open Map - Local data for the area & see no boundary. Is there an on-line version of what you're using as data?

Could you explain what 'Tayberry' is? Is it an editor or an importer?
52017-07-19 09:34:14 UTCSomeoneElse I suspect that is mistagged. It's tagged as a hospital, but the name suggests it's a nursing home. Have a look in for things like "nursing home" "care home" and "healthcare" and "social...
62017-07-19 13:03:27 UTCDaveF Social facility is probably what's required:
72017-07-19 20:51:16 UTCndm I've redrawn from Bing and tagged as amenity=nursing_home as per JOSM defaults for "Nursing Home".
82017-07-19 20:55:11 UTCndm I redrew Penny Brohn as well -- not sure about Bristol Port -- should at least be a relation? Probably needs extensive redrawing/reverting?
92017-07-20 09:39:38 UTCDaveF In JOSM There's also the newer amenity=social_facility as an umbrella value for all variants as list in the link I provided above, which seems sensible development to me

The two main problems I have with the port is
1) it's tagged as industrial which duplicates existing area
2) it does tie in ...
102017-07-20 12:11:27 UTCDaveF Correction: "it *doesn't* tie in "
112017-07-20 19:20:36 UTCndm I walked the bridleway ~2 months ago -- it's outside of the fenced industrial area. I note the original industrial area is still "underneath" the larger -- as is the foreshore, part of the coastline/inlets and a wildlife corridor I added a while ago.
12017-07-18 19:59:31 UTCDaveF Hi Welcome to OSM
Are you sure this is path is permissive?
It's got the Limestone link route +
22017-07-18 20:08:31 UTC_Stuz My understanding is that there are actually two parallel paths here. The extant one here corresponds with my GPS survey of the permissive path (marked with notices along its length). The technical public right of way is slightly to the north, and hasn't been surveyed. I'm intending to do a more comp...
32017-07-18 20:20:23 UTCDaveF Great. Do you know if any of the construction site can now be converted to residential area?
42017-07-19 19:59:11 UTC_Stuz I've now surveyed Limstone Link, and made appropriate adjustments.

I haven't yet determined the current bounds of the construction zone.
52017-07-20 08:42:03 UTCDaveF Excellent, looks good. Did the impassible bit look like it was intentional?
62017-07-20 09:00:40 UTC_Stuz Very overgrown, no evidence of a stile (that I could see) at the field boundary along the RoW route. I think the farmer essentially wants the RoW to be unofficially diverted on to the parallel permissive way, and is discouraging foot traffic on the RoW as much as possible.
72017-07-20 11:46:54 UTCtrigpoint Please report it to the local highway authority and Ramblers
12017-07-16 09:46:40 UTCDaveF Hi
Do you have any details for this airstrip. I can find no info.
22017-07-16 10:03:21 UTCjan_olieslagers I found it in a list , published as a pdf, called "Britisch Isles Airfield Guide". It dates from 2013 though, so I cannot vouch there still is an active aerdrome today. Do feel free to add "note" or "fixme" or "closed=yes" as you see fit. Regards,
32017-07-17 14:49:02 UTCSomeoneElse @jan_olieslagers what's the licence associated with the PDF and where did the information in it come from?
42017-07-17 15:54:10 UTCjan_olieslagers I've no idea. There is no mention of copyright or licence in the pdf that I could find. Let me have an address and I'll be glad to mail it to you. Regards,
52017-07-18 20:04:52 UTCSomeoneElse A quick web search of "Britisch Isles Airfield Guide" "pdf" "2013" finds a few candidates, such as . Is it perhaps one of those?
In the absense of any other information we probably can't assum...
62017-07-19 10:23:52 UTCCebderby Visually, the line of T hangars at the west shows it was an aviation site (at the time of the images). Looks like it is a private site known variously as (Wickwar/Yate) Chase Farm (Airstrip), certainly in use 2009-2016 (see The E-W run...
12017-07-13 16:47:47 UTCMike Baggaley HI Dave, on way 56463013, you have added foot=yes to a way that has access=private and highway=footway. This can lead to confusion over whether access for walking is intended to be private or public. As this is appears to be a path to a school and terminates in a gate, it might be best to remove acc...
22017-07-13 21:11:02 UTCDaveF Agreed - Done.
12017-07-13 19:44:34 UTCDaveF Hi agsin

12017-07-13 19:47:00 UTCDaveF Could you please revert this edit.
22017-07-13 19:51:45 UTCDaveF Could you please move these to their correct location
12017-07-11 21:05:56 UTCDaveF Hi
This is an automated edit. Have you discussed this on any OSM forum?
22017-07-12 05:37:28 UTCtambre This wasn't an automated edit. I went through everything manually.
32017-07-12 08:57:08 UTCDaveF Your changeset was open for just 6 seconds.
42017-07-12 09:29:00 UTCtambre After some Googling about how changesets works, it seems my editor (JOSM) simply uploads all changes at once by default. As for the 6 seconds, it seems roughly like the time it would take me to upload a changeset of this size. Should I in future figure out how to avoid uploading everything at once? ...
52017-07-12 10:08:10 UTCSomeoneElse Hello and welcome to OpenStreetMap!
There are a few reasons why automated edits such as this one need to be discussed.
One is to give people who are using the "old" tagging chance to change to the "new" tagging. Without any kind of warning, features will disappear from downstr...
62017-07-12 10:11:07 UTCSomeoneElse For more info, see .
12017-07-07 11:48:59 UTCDaveF Hi Cate91 Welcome to OSM.
I'm reverting a couple of your edits as you've removed a tag & overlaid a new highway instead of upgrading the existing way.

Is Cherry Banks fully open to Forgetmenot Way?
22017-07-07 11:51:42 UTCDaveF To check: Is the road you added actually called Cherry Banks as that is in another part of the development?
32017-07-07 12:23:16 UTCCate91 No worries - I'm new to this!

The road added/changed is called Cherry Banks (not another part of the development)

Cherry Banks splits where it meets Bluebell Way and continues south to meet the NE/SW Cherry Banks road and join to Willowherb (That part of the road is not on the map yet).

42017-07-07 13:11:59 UTCsouthglos Hi
...and 30mph? I thought all of this development was within a 20mph zone?
52017-07-07 16:41:36 UTCCate91 Not that I know of as I believe it's all 30mph, but if you know better, by all means, change it to 20mph :) It'll all become clearer once the council actually adopt the roads.
12017-07-05 13:37:11 UTCDaveF Hi
Wouldn't it benefit OSM if, instead of removing semi-inaccurate tags, to update them to their correct values?
22017-07-06 20:12:20 UTCSK53 I'd strongly support DaveF here: before designation became widely used access=designated or foot=designated was often used for Public Rights of Way. This may or may not be the case here, but removal of the tag does nothing to improve OSM, and may degrade the information.

12017-06-29 20:51:49 UTCDaveF Hi
By "too prominent" are you referring to how it renders on the standard map? If so, could you reinstate it please.

If it exists it can be mapped. If you feel the rendering isn't to your liking you can discuss it in the relevant forum:
22017-06-29 22:12:49 UTCSK53 Removing data is "mapping for the renderer": please don't do it. Someone took the time to transcribe the information from the plaque and enter it in OSM. This type of information is widely used elsewhere: for instance on the website. By removing it to make this area look th...
32017-06-29 22:34:18 UTCddd bbb Firstly, sorry! I want the area to represent how people navigate - is there a way of keeping it there without it being rendered/removing house numbers nearby? Can it be put back?
42017-07-02 21:30:35 UTCndm I've reverted this changeset -- and tweaked it a bit in a separate one.
12017-06-20 17:52:38 UTCDaveF Hi
Could you provide your source for the name please.
22017-06-21 21:07:36 UTCVexX_uk I grew up in the area and this is what everyone calls the park. New here so not sure if local knowledge is enough.

I'm actually struggling to find an official source for this but perhaps the fact that it's on Manor Road gives enough confidence that I'm not making this up?
32017-06-22 11:45:49 UTCDaveF BTW Welcome to OSM.

I've never found an official name, which is why I never named it. I see it more as a leisure=recreation_ground than a park. It certainly shouldn't be tagged as both.

How about 'Manor Road Playing Fields'?
12017-06-20 18:07:06 UTCDaveF Hi
Is there a reason you moved The Cove's location?
22017-06-20 18:14:14 UTCDaveF Allow me to correct myself. It is in the pub's garden & EH have located it in the wrong place
32017-06-20 21:33:08 UTCrobbieonsea Yes indeed I moved it, as can be seen fairly clearly on Bing aerial imagery - which aligned to my GPS trace (albeit that ended on path entrance to the pub garden).
The Code stones are directly in line from that path entrance at the back of the pub garden.
12017-06-14 12:50:43 UTCDaveF Please refrain from adding not existing features. As noted previously there's a likelihood they'll be removed, which would be a waste of your time. Note comment about historical data:
22017-06-15 10:54:04 UTCSomeoneElse @SNLA this has been mentioned on the talk-gb list - . If you want to engage with the GB OSM community, that's probably the best place to do it, and also one of the best places to ask for advice about whatever it is that you're ...
12017-06-09 22:12:04 UTCndm Hi, I think something isn't right with "The Pump Rooms and Stall Street -- they seem to have an odd shape now?
22017-06-10 14:32:10 UTCDaveF Hi Syvanne
Welcome to OSM could you clarify what it is your trying to add?
Most visible extents of the mediaeval wall are mapped.
OSM is a database of current entities. If you wish to record historical data I recommend having a read of this:
32017-06-12 10:44:38 UTCSyvanne Aloni Hi DaveF,

Thank you for pointing this out to me. I have tried using OHM but the website seems down at the moment. Do you know anything about this?
42017-06-12 11:12:51 UTCDaveF Unsure of OHM's status, but OSM is not the place for razed entities. Please feel free to add any examples that still exist, adding appropriate tags.
Could you also have a look at the problems NDM flagged up. Thanks.
52017-06-13 10:03:51 UTCSyvanne Aloni Hi DaveF, I have clarified and I am able to use OSM for mapping my data as OHM is not yet compatible with other software which I need to use. I am working with the Pleiades Gazetteer, the Institute of Classical Studies and the Roman Society to create a map of Aquae Sulis using Archeological journals...
62017-06-13 13:17:44 UTCDaveF Hi

72017-06-13 19:40:40 UTCndm I think it probably needs to be raised on the talk-gb mailing list and maybe with the data working group -- they were great at removing edits in Bristol that added the historic HTV studio and icerink. It would be better to get some clarity -- rather than risk wasteing time on edits that could well b...

12017-06-10 22:12:09 UTCDaveF Have you thought about mapping the actual fishing sites instead of the irrelevant 'access' notes?
22017-06-10 22:50:36 UTCmaranman Not at all irrelevant if you are a member of the club who holds the right to fish that area!
You are so obviously not an angler and therefore have no experience of the innacurate car park locations issued by angling club volunteers. They try hard but often fail.
32017-06-11 09:56:31 UTCDaveF And you are obviously an inexperienced OSM mapper. It is not just for anglers information. Please read up on how to map accurately:

22017-05-28 19:05:04 UTCjackpd Hi
These pitches change position each year and aren't necessarily repainted each year. They are part of the school grounds and tend to change quite frequently​
32017-05-29 09:26:55 UTCDaveF OK.
Are the grounds for the sole use of Sheldon or shared with Hardenhuish?

12017-05-20 21:57:19 UTCDaveF Hi

Could you explain why you made this amendment? It looks like a farmyard to me.
22017-05-20 22:09:27 UTCDaveF Note the description for place=farm:

This is the rare (non existent in the UK?) where a place such as a village or hamlet of residential houses unrelated to the farm has taken the name of the farm. Ithink you should have tagge...
32017-05-20 22:27:48 UTCkreuzschnabel Thanks for asking! landuse=farmyard, like other landuse=*, would be technically wrong on a single node since they are defined for outlines only (i.e. closed ways). So in ost cases coming across single landuse=farm nodes, I decided the first mapper’s intention was to get at least the farm&rsquo...
42017-05-21 13:02:38 UTCDaveF Hi
"to get at least the farm’s name on the map rendering," < This is tagging for the render & is to be discouraged. Mapnik carto is just one of many renderings.

72017-05-22 13:38:07 UTCDaveF Hi
You're not sounding rude.

You've changed multiple items from tags that represent farms to tags that do not represent farms, purely to, by your own admission, "get the farm’s name on the map rendering". This absolutely is 'tagging for the renderer'.

12017-05-20 21:32:07 UTCDaveF Hi Zanzer321
There's no need ot keep adding a node for Percy Boys. The data already exists as a polygon accurately positioned at the club's location.
12017-05-19 12:39:18 UTCDaveF Is it steps only to the North bank? Seems strange as it was meant to be a shared path.
22017-05-19 22:39:02 UTCndm Hopefully, I have some photos so I can disambiguate it -- I got keen yesterday to see how the GPS track looked compared to my original "by eye" sketch. More importantly I should have info on the south side to connect it to Finzel's reach and get better map routing -- and map a rather nice ...
12017-05-17 10:24:54 UTCDaveF Hi
Why did you delete this way? It was clearly mis-tagged by me (using Potlatch's 'replicate' key, I think). It should residential, as evident by looking at aerial imagery.
Error like this should be corrected not deleted.
22017-05-22 01:07:26 UTCRichRico Hi DaveF, Thanks for your correction

12017-05-10 16:48:24 UTCDaveF Hi
Is this definitely a designated public footpath?:

I saw no signs the last time I walked it.

22017-05-10 17:14:12 UTCseeadler1 Hey,
I'm pretty sure it is. There's at least one yellow sign when walking from the stables towards the south-west. I'll verify next time I'm in the area.
Thanks for having a watchful eye.
32017-05-10 17:49:52 UTCDaveF I've checked BANES's latest Definitive Map data & it's not in there.
42017-05-12 16:46:28 UTCseeadler1 You are absolutely right. I must have been seeing ghosts. There are no signs designating that path at all. I've changed it to a simple highway=path, which should be closer to reality. Thanks
12017-05-06 21:01:38 UTCDaveF Please don't create *multi* polygons with only one member.
12017-05-05 19:22:48 UTCDaveF Hi Is this a new gate or are you confusing it with the one in to the fiels further West?
22017-05-05 19:30:36 UTCDaveF Oops... I meant field further to the East.
32017-05-05 19:57:20 UTCseeadler1 Hey,
yes there's a gate at both ends of the highway=track section. I'm not sure for how long the west-most gate has been there but at least a few month now.
12017-05-02 19:14:01 UTCDaveF Hi Leigh
FYI Pubs, with their associated tags, are often already mapped with a polygon encompassing the whole of the property including car parks, gardens etc as in this case: I tag any buildings as 'building=pub'
12017-05-01 20:38:38 UTCndm My bad, the photo I've got has 4 stands -- must have been a narrow angle.

The Pintxo restaurant must be new its website only lists Cornwall -- "Bistro La Barrique" was definintely there on 4 April.
22017-05-01 21:46:18 UTCDaveF Yes, it's just opened:
12017-04-22 19:25:59 UTCndm Dave, thde wiki says "Set a node Node or draw as an area Area along the building outline." -- I know that isn't how you map them in Bath, but that's how I've mapped the a lot of the ones in Bristol -- it would be good to keep this one consistent.
22017-04-29 13:24:53 UTCDaveF I think the wiki page needs expanding. Similar to schools, Universities & hospitals, a boundary around all elements owned by the pub seems the more detailed/accurate way to map.

I've posted to the tagging forum: "Mapping pubs as full areas"
Mapping pubs as full areas
32017-04-29 16:04:48 UTCtrigpoint The biergarten tag is a little out of place. I suspect it is a pub beer garden.

22017-04-27 17:15:30 UTCLeigh Dodds Hi Dave,

Happy to edit to fix up the Margaret's Buildings buildings, though want to keep Brock Street as that's now correct. So will edit the buildings separately rather than try and revert this whole changetset (which I'm not sure how to do).

I'm not clear on what you mean by map the extent o...
32017-04-27 17:21:09 UTCLeigh Dodds For example, should I redraw with Thunderforest landscape background. I can see there's a difference there now that I look. Same with the OS Open Street View, although that doesn't have hard edges.
42017-04-27 17:46:23 UTCLeigh Dodds Actually I see that JOSM has a revert plugin, would you prefer it if I reverted the whole thing then reapplied changes to Brock Street?

Let me know what you think is best.
52017-04-27 18:02:03 UTCDaveF In JOSM there's a way to revert certain entities using the revert plugin:

File > Open Location. Paste in the changeset URL. Download

Select the ways/nodes that need reverting.

Data > Revert changeset > Revert Selection Only.
62017-04-28 08:22:27 UTCLeigh Dodds OK, I'll revert these changes. Leave it with me.
72017-04-28 10:56:46 UTCLeigh Dodds I've ended up reverting the entire changeset. JOSM didn't make it easy for me to select and revert just the buildings on Margaret buildings. So I've just removed it. I'll reapply edits to Brock Street separately another time.

That said, I'm still not 100% sure why the buildings are better this wa...
82017-04-28 13:26:59 UTCDaveF What should be mapped is the footprint of the building at ground level. But you mapped the edge of the roof. Due to the angle the photo was taken (note you can see the right hand face of the buildings) the left hand roof edge is shown too far over. I'll explain clearer when we meet next.
12017-04-22 00:38:34 UTCDaveF I mapped & tagged it similar to schools. Put amenity/address etc on the encompassing boundary. Any buildings should just have building=pub..
22017-04-22 12:10:22 UTCazzap Thanks for correcting it DaveF
32017-04-22 12:21:44 UTCDaveF @azzap I haven't changed it, but you may want to have a read of the second paragraph of this:
12017-04-22 11:58:45 UTCDaveF Hi Gazzzer Welcome to OSM.
You drawn a polygon, but it requires some tags What were trying to represent? Note there's already a park mapped.

Welcome to OSM.

Is this in the correct location? Where you've placed it is a community centre.

12017-04-17 13:45:47 UTCDaveF Hi again

I assume the bridge which got amended by your edit isn't that long?
22017-04-17 14:04:14 UTCEpistle Sorry, thanks for pointing this out. I have hopefully corrected this OK.
12017-04-17 13:41:24 UTCDaveF Hi Welcome to OSM. Good additions ot the OSM dafabase.

The new path needs revised tags. If you know it's a PROW the best way to map it is:

Surface is used by many routers to decide which is the best way to go.
22017-04-17 13:55:01 UTCEpistle Thank you for the information. Learning slowly how to use the system.
12017-04-13 12:36:52 UTCDaveF Hi
If it's still being built it;s more accurate to ued this tag:

12017-04-07 12:08:33 UTCDaveF Hi ti-lo
I've notice you've changed shop=motorcycle_repair to shop=motorcycle
What source did you use to ascertain they sell motorcycles?
22017-04-07 13:43:08 UTCti-lo A shop=motorcycle doesn't have to sell motorcycles. It's possible they repair, sell tyres, clothes or other stuff. To enable frontends to filter this, I'm standardizing the key. This means the "main" category is "shop", the "subcategories" motorcycle *:* (called "s...
32017-04-07 20:27:39 UTCDaveF Even if the revised tagging system is adopted (Was there any discussion?) you haven't confirmed whether it sells motorcycles or not.

72017-04-08 14:47:36 UTCDaveF Hi
"as I can't say whether it (meanwhile) possibly sells used bikes." < Again, this is the problem. You've explicitly changed it from 'definitely doesn't sell bikes' to 'definitely does sell bikes' *without* any knowledge.
82017-04-08 15:17:30 UTCti-lo Hi Dave, I'm not sure whether you read my answers. The description of shop=motorcycle INCLUDES REPAIR SINCE 2010 : "A shop that sells motorcycles and/or related accessories, clothes, parts, repair and rental services."
So this is ...
92017-04-08 15:40:46 UTCDaveF Hi
if I were in your position I wouldn't have made the amendments due to lack of *any* knowledge to justify the changes. Your last sentence confirms why.

shop=motorcycle_repair means it doesn't sell bikes. You've now made it, at best, ambiguous.
102017-04-08 16:18:26 UTCti-lo In my point of view it's just another way to express the same thing (and to enable people to tag further properties of the item).
It would be great if you'd propose how to solve this (in your point of view) "issue" instead of keeping on complaining. In the last seven years there would hav...
112017-04-10 11:25:01 UTCDaveF As explained previously you've change the meaning of the entity, not provided an alternative.

There is no 'issue' to solve. The entity was accurately & legitimately tagged before your amendments.
As you've no knowledge of this shop you should not have made any changes.

122017-04-10 18:28:01 UTCti-lo What do you think about that ?

142017-04-10 20:38:35 UTCDaveF What are your plans to revert your erroneous edits?

"These SHOULD be proposed on the tagging group!!! Not proposed on a wiki page."
152017-04-12 07:15:43 UTCwoodpeck The bulk of ti-lo's motorcycle adjustments have been reverted in and I recommended that a discussion is held on the tagging mailing list before changes are re-introduced.
162017-04-12 10:12:41 UTCDaveF @ti-lo
I look forward discussing your proposal on the Tagging mailing list.

22017-04-04 19:14:35 UTCti-lo It's not mechanical, but manual

72017-04-10 11:54:52 UTCDaveF Although this entity was tagged indirectly in the first place (it should be shop not amenity), you made it worse by removing any primary tag & substituting with a sole sub-tag. Sub-tags are 'adjective' tags which help describe the details of the objects.

I'm sure the hotel is in the correct position, but it's clashing with the existing car park. This also requires updating.

I will gladly make further edits, but before that could you please share more guides on what exactly should be done, to make sure we are on the same page?

Thank you.

What is the source of knowledge for your numerous & widespread maxheight edits?
22017-03-26 23:25:03 UTCndm As above. Plus, 11'9'' is a perfectly acceptable maxheight -- there is no need to convert it (approiximately) to metres -- should only map what is signed.
32017-03-27 14:31:06 UTCcdavila The source is data already in OSM coming from nodes tagged maxheight=*. In case of doubt, bing imagery is used to clarify. As a background, I usually keep the original node, so that anyone can check the information and the source if it contains one.
@ndm: you are right, but meters is the default va...
42017-03-28 11:32:24 UTCDaveF Ah, I understand you now. I thought you were moving tags, but you're in fact interpreting them to add additional ones. Unsure if hgv=no on a way is required when there's a maxheight on the entrance, but does no harm, I suppose. Cheers.
12017-03-23 16:13:06 UTCDaveF Hi Dan Welcome to OSM.

My understanding was Yammo is due to reopen. Have you heard differently?
22017-03-23 16:17:56 UTCdan_bath Hi Dave, yes Yammo is due to reopen, but it looks as though it was incorrectly added as a building. 66 Walcot Street is partitioned - Yammo and Languages United both lease parts of the building. My changes were making the address a commercial building, and the businesses nodes on it. I don't know if...
32017-03-23 16:31:32 UTCDaveF That's strange, I didn't realise they were the same property. Can you walk between them?
I think Yammo should still be included as a building in its own right, as to a map user they are two separate businesses even if they share the same house number. Are you the property manager?
42017-03-23 16:43:01 UTCdan_bath Yes, we share the same number - you can't walk between them, Yammo leases 1/2 of the ground and part at the back, we lease part ground and 2nd/3rd floors. On a 2D map it is difficult to plot, which is why I thought single building with two organisation nodes. Yammo should be on there - I've let the ...
52017-03-23 17:08:48 UTCDaveF I've tweaked them so they're both mapped as polygons & occupy the correct space.

Is this 'park' really called 'Zone N'?

22017-03-23 13:43:15 UTCSimon Hobeck Hi,

Yes, the area is called "Zone N" - Its a strange name but is left over from when the area was demolished in the 1970s and then zoned for redevelopment. You'll see another green area SE along the Wells Road, called "Zone A".

The path is across the grass through the area...

22017-03-17 18:28:17 UTCchris_debian Hi, Dave.

Position is great, but I'm 99% sure the church is now dis-used. I think the uncertainty can be left until the new housing estate replaces it!


12017-03-09 18:15:53 UTCchillly Welcome to OSM

You seem to have added a park over the top of an existing park. This is not a good idea.

I will revert (undo) this edit.
22017-03-09 18:16:18 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM. Thank you for your edit, the park was already mapped so I have removed your duplication and put the name onto the existing area.

Please note when using there could already be polygon ways for entities, such as Lidl supermarket & its car park. I've merged & deleted the node POIs.

I apologise for creating double entries. Thank you for informing me about the associated polygon information.
12017-02-25 18:31:40 UTCDaveF Hi Dave
Nice hospital buildings. I've transferred the name & address from each one to the enclosing amenity=hospital polygon otherwise it looks like there's multiple hospitals.

I assume each building/department will have individual names. Add them if you know them.

22017-02-10 09:14:18 UTCMike Baggaley HI Dave,

You can see why I split them by looking at the OSM rendered map - it only shows one of the facilities. However, the primary reason is that the shop and post office have different details that cannot be represented correctly together. If you look at these details you will see that the new...

22017-01-22 11:03:09 UTCsdoerr 'Incorrect data' is a bit vague. Wouldn't it be more useful to explain what you think is wrong with the edits?

12016-12-29 21:34:49 UTCSomeoneElse Hi,
I was tidying up after a new user who'd made a few unfortunate edits, and came across , which dates from rather earlier :)
It's mapped as "layer=1; tunnel=yes" - is that because it's in the air but covered?
Just check it wasn't accidental.\...
22017-01-09 14:44:58 UTCrandomjunk Yeah, it was deliberate :-)
The tunnel is basically a pedestrian bridge over the road and pavements integrated into a building.
32017-01-09 16:00:59 UTCDaveF As it's above ground level, would covered=yes be more appropriate than tunnel?
42017-01-09 17:34:23 UTCrandomjunk As I remember it it's not really "open on one side", and just a passage through the building with a very subway-tunnel-like feel. Don't think I've actually used in in the last 6 years though so I may be misremembering.
52017-01-09 17:42:19 UTCDaveF Ah, I've never really agreed with the 'has to be open at the sides' argument, but as an alternative, how about tunnel=building_passage (72 711 occurrences)
12017-01-09 12:23:13 UTCioangogo I think that we should keep it as construction until late evening of the the 16th as the council are going to quietly open it
22017-01-09 12:25:48 UTCioangogo 15th not the 16th
32017-01-09 17:30:32 UTCDaveF Excellent. To check, did you mean to leave the roundabout North exit as construction & I presume both one ways of the Southern Link are operational?
42017-01-10 08:34:39 UTCRick Wiles I know I had opened the north side of the roundabout, must have undone the change as I went back and forward a few times. There are a few lanes on the south side, I have only opened one as I am not sure which are which and know its not 100% correct.
12017-01-08 15:16:37 UTCDaveF Hi Mintra
Vehicles can access the road via the car park. Could you please revert your amendments.
22017-01-08 19:05:34 UTCMintra Hmm, the access across the paved area is hardly a road but I concede your point and will join them back up :)

I won't revert the road alongside 4ES to being a parking aisle, however.
12016-12-22 22:21:54 UTCDaveF Interesting. I thought that wood was private land. How do you gain access? Does it join the A39? Is it sold wall along that stretch?
12016-12-22 22:19:23 UTCDaveF Could readd the boundary=administrative tag please.
12016-12-22 22:15:13 UTCDaveF Hi Sn6wy

12016-12-22 16:35:22 UTCDaveF Hi krishykrish
Welcome to OSM. I made a couple of small tweaks to your house edits. The addresses were transferred from a node to the associated polygon, and using the 'make right angle' tool I made them into true rectangles.
If you live there & have the time it would be great if some of the...
22016-12-22 19:02:35 UTCkrishykrish Yes. The roads are open. I shall add other houses too. Can I just check which services use OSM in their maps software?
12015-07-04 17:31:45 UTCDaveF Hi Snake Skin

There's an expression in OSM: 'Don't tag incorrectly to suit the renderer'.

For accuracyIf a KG is a KG then it should be tagged as such. If you wish an item to be visible in a specific render you should contact the person creating the tiles.

72016-12-20 16:53:37 UTCtrigpoint Not really a comment on the mapping, or the rendering, but if a PROW has stiles or kissing gates then it is a public footpath. You should not be taking a bike on such paths.

Do you work for BCC? Would you have a contact with someone in the council who could provide other data which could be added to the map? Similar to B&NES who have provided various data sets under the OGL licence:

12016-12-04 12:33:29 UTCDaveF Hi camarones

Is the surface really asphalt? They're usually grit. Isn't it also a loop so they can do more than one circuit?
22016-12-04 18:26:59 UTCcamarones The pump track was resurfaced last week and is now all asphalt .The trace does also need adjusting
32016-12-04 18:36:33 UTCDaveF Ah, OK. Good for longevity, I suppose, but I thought half the fun was to go as fast as possible without the rear sliding way from under you.
12016-11-25 14:38:39 UTCDaveF Why have you moved lime kiln roundabout? The kiln's remnants are in the centre. You've made part of the A38 oneway.
PDF (Page 10):
22016-11-25 15:08:42 UTCtms13 I moved the roundabout because that's where my GPS trace of the southbound side located it. Yes, that oneway tag should have been proposed:oneway - I'll fix that if no-one else got to it first.
32016-11-25 15:13:39 UTCtms13 That Google link was just a redirection to, where the outline of the lime kilns looks very different to that on OSM - perhaps it needs a re-survey? If you're in the area, you may be able to get access to the new roundabout t...

12016-10-13 17:34:28 UTCDaveF Hi
Does the track go above or below the cycle route? Either way it requires a bridge/tunnel tag.
Is the waterworks mapped incorrectly?
22016-10-13 18:39:27 UTCFollowMeChaps I have added the tunnel tags (hopefully correctly) and reduced the size of the water/sewage works.

There's no real need to add access & motor_vehicle as it's a presumption for tertiary roads.

This appears to be a large mechanical edit, was it discussed anywhere.
What is your justification for this change, the wiki says waterway=riverbank is the correct way to tag riverbanks on large rivers.
22016-10-07 21:09:29 UTCDaveF What evidence makes you think it was "mechanical"?
32016-10-07 21:18:03 UTCtrigpoint It covers a large area, which makes me suspicious, howevet what is the justification for this change that goes against the wiki and changes the work of local mappers?
42016-10-07 21:18:37 UTCDaveF Why haven't you read the wiki fully?
52016-10-07 21:21:07 UTCDaveF It's a "large area" because it's the "longest river in the United Kingdom". Why do I have to explain that to you? You should be intelligent enough to work it out for yourself.
62016-10-07 21:32:01 UTCDaveF Do you look at the time a changeset is active before making unfounded accusations?
72016-10-07 21:33:08 UTCDaveF Do automated mechanical edits involve deletions mixed in with tag edits?

To check, is there definitely a new building here? It appears a very strange place to put it.

12016-09-15 11:04:33 UTCDaveF Hi
Brunswick Place is the name of the southern terrace of houses & so is not an alternative road name. (Montpelier is the name of the row opposite) This happens a lot in Bath.
Julian Road is the road's name throughout.
22016-09-15 14:14:53 UTCBCNorwich Hi, OK I understand and agree with that. Mapper LegBritSlav added a way which duplicated part of Julian Road, I removed the duplication but kept the name thinking it might be valid.
The alt:name is now removed and a note added with your information about the terraces.

12016-07-09 17:44:33 UTCDaveF Hi
Why have you assumed there isn't a crossing? crossing=no could be the incorrect tag. Looking at some of your edits you've taken what looks like legitimate crossing places & removed them.
22016-07-13 18:01:48 UTCalejandroscf Also, that crossing=no is important, marking a poit where used to be a crossing.
I hope you are checking by survey all this changes ¿or is this an unauthorized automated edit?
32016-07-14 09:47:01 UTCgileri I don't see how highway=crossing and crossing=no would work together, apart from temporarily forbidden crossing.

But leaving crossing=no alone seems weirder.
42016-07-14 11:50:17 UTCWynndale The point about trolltags is that it isn’t the trolltag itself (here crossing=no) that misleads data consumers; rather the problem is with the tag that it compromises that consumers shouldn’t have to see in the first place.
52016-07-14 11:58:40 UTCSomeoneElse For info, "trolltags" might need some explanation (it's not as offensive as it sounds):
62016-07-15 10:05:18 UTCDaveF FYI I asked for the opinion of others on this forum thread:

highway=crossing & crossing=no combination is, as we all appear to agree, contradictory. And I agree with you that highway=crossing on its own is superfluous.

72016-09-13 15:12:23 UTCd1g Replied about "trolltags" arguments:
12016-07-03 16:50:39 UTCSomeoneElse It doesn't really look like it from the imagery, but is perhaps a barrier=kissing_gate?

42016-06-01 17:12:35 UTCDaveF Thanks
52016-06-01 21:47:25 UTCtrigpoint A hedge is a linear barrier, there is no rule that they should be closed. A gap is perfectly normal .
Please remember that QA tools can consider things as errors, when they are correct and as intended.

32016-05-13 18:32:49 UTCDaveF OK I've updated to make it slightly more accurate. I made the building an office & added a separate node to indicate the shop. Needs a subtag to indicate what it does/doesn't sell..

22016-03-11 09:39:37 UTCSK53 Yes but I find mapping the whole site including the car park as the pub counterintuitive (let alone the non-optimal rendering position of the icon).

32016-03-11 12:04:30 UTCMar Mar I agree with SK53, the proof is that I actually didn't see that the George was already there because the icon was so far away from the building, even less visible than the parking lot also named the George. But hey, these are details, just wanted to put this nice pub on the map...
42016-03-11 13:10:08 UTCDaveF Thanks for the replies

Please don't tag incorrectly to suit a failing of just one renderer. Remember this is a database & their are many different renderings taken from it.

Similar to schools, the amenity=* tag should be a closed polygon encompassing the full area of usage by the organisat...
52016-03-11 13:21:15 UTCSK53 No, this is a genuine difference in how people choose to map pubs, not "mapping for the renderer".

I can see the advantages of mapping the whole area : relationships are easily determined, but it has never been obvious to me (or many other mappers) that a pub car park is a pub. If I tho...
62016-03-11 14:12:49 UTCEdLoach The wiki suggests that amenity=pub should go on the node *or* the building. "If the whole building is used for this feature and its footprint is present in OSM, you can apply the tags on the area if you prefer" which is different to schools.
72016-03-11 15:27:03 UTCDaveF @SK53
The reason Mar Mar added amenity=pub (well, restaurant actually), not only to the building but as a node, was his failure to notice the boundary & the icon in both the render & the editor, not due to tagging choice .
'Retail' isn't a substitute for defining a boundary of individual p...
82016-03-11 15:58:59 UTCEdLoach So should the amenity=place_of_worship tag across the road be on the whole of the church grounds rather than just the building?
92016-03-11 16:23:10 UTCDaveF Good question, & one I've thought about but come to no concrete conclusions. I believe there should be some kind of tag, be it amenity=place_of_worship or some other tag, to define the extent of a place of worship's property which could encompass things such as the building, graveyards, church h...
102016-03-11 16:53:24 UTCSK53 I suggest we move this conversation to talk-gb. There are interesting aspects of how we tag areas associated with various POIS: and obviously at least two different approaches.
112016-03-11 17:10:00 UTCDaveF Yes, but I think Tagging is the more appropriate forum.

I need to clarify I reverted the edit, not due to 'tagging choices', but that there were three different George Pubs. All Mar Mar's additional tags have been added to the existing way. Between us we've made the OSM database more accur...
122016-03-11 17:23:04 UTCSK53 Yes I understand why it was reverted: I was just particularly interested in seeing a pub mapped this way, and then realising that we have (at least) 2 different approaches in the UK.

Personally this is a talk-gb issue. By all means pass it on to tagging, but I don't place great faith on their jud...
12016-03-09 14:55:29 UTCDaveF Which app was failing to interpret OSM data correctly?
22016-03-09 20:28:52 UTCnotgary

It's a fitness app that allows you to draw routes for your run on a map powered by OSM. If pedestrian traffic isn't allowed, it won't allow you to draw a route down that road.
32016-03-09 20:40:19 UTCDaveF Could you contact the app's creators please & let them know that trunk roads are assumed accessible by foot.

Do you know why it's only a few disjointed sections?
12016-02-16 22:14:32 UTCDaveF Hi Miko

FYI I've started a discussion on the Tagging forum regarding using relations to tag bridges.
12016-02-12 13:43:12 UTCDaveF Hi Readie
Welcome to OSM.
I've amended your bike parking slightly duplicating both node & polygon would have made the total parking spaces = 40.

If you draw rectangular boxes there's an option to 'square them up' in the toolbar

Dave F.

I made the change as I wanted the bike shed included in some exported data. I wasn't comfortable with how I had added it and I was going to remove what I had done.

Many thanks for cleaning it up!

12015-11-16 15:48:57 UTCediyes Hi DaveF, I fixed your edition a footway with a road, because such streets join, for more details you can see the wiki
22015-11-16 16:04:42 UTCDaveF Hi Could you provide the specific way(s) please. You've edited quite a few & it's difficult to determine which one you're talking about.

Dave F.
32015-11-16 16:09:20 UTCediyes Hi, oh sorry, the specific way is

12015-10-10 13:47:16 UTCtrigpoint Hi
I think somethimng has gone wrong here, beatroot is already mapped
Has it moved, or was it in the wrong place?
22015-10-10 15:16:40 UTCDaveF Hi jonkellas
Welcome to OSM.
You appear to have move the bike parking inside a building, Is there a reason this? You've appear to have erroneously put a kink in Wine St. Could you please check & amend in necessary.
12015-10-09 15:08:34 UTCDaveF Please stop making erroneous edits
22015-10-10 15:50:13 UTCSomeoneElse @DaveF can you explain the problem here? It just looks like a slip of the mouse has joined some ways together (entirely understandable for someone with only a few OSM edits) - or is there another problem?
12015-10-08 18:25:29 UTCDaveF Hi albryant1

Can you explain the reason for your deletion of this way please:

Dave F.
22015-10-10 15:45:01 UTCSomeoneElse might shed more light on what happened here - it shows how the tags on this changed as time went on. I suspect the real problem happened a couple of revisions ago when "beatrice jones" (who has since been banned for repeated fantasy edits) ...
12015-10-08 11:34:17 UTCDaveF Hi RFaith

Please change the background in iD to 'OS OpenData StreetView' to see the true name of the road. Note wood name also.

Dave F.
22015-10-10 15:27:30 UTCSomeoneElse If there's a sign on the road saying "Rode Hill" then the name _should_ be "Rode Hill" rather than "Road Hill". Councils get road names wrong more often than you might think. These are often marked in OpenStreetMap as "not:name" - there are about 12,000 in t...
12015-09-30 13:32:39 UTCSomeoneElse Previously I asked in why you were splitting identically-tagged ways in two. You're still doing it here - and are both identically tagged and neither is part of a ...
22015-10-01 09:16:04 UTCdataOne I did split it into 2 as someone might want to turn on side road before height restriction but I just figured it out that there is height restriction on other end too. So I have merged them again.
32015-10-01 10:19:13 UTCSomeoneElse Where is the height restriction? I don't see one on at all.
42015-10-01 11:27:27 UTCdataOne Just look at its street view.
52015-10-01 11:31:03 UTCSomeoneElse If you mean "Google Street View" I'm afraid Google's terms and conditions don't allow it to be used for OSM. See for details.
62015-10-01 11:41:46 UTCdataOne yeah you are right. As a matter of fact if you just look at osm location, Its clearly visible here too that A14 seems to be an overhead bridge/road to the connecting road of Nasby road and other yellow road.
72015-10-05 16:51:48 UTCDaveF As you are making no valid edits, could you please refrain from splitting ways. If & when you have maxheadroom please follow the guidelines here:
82015-10-06 15:50:03 UTCRovastar Can someone explain in plain speaking English what is wrong with a user splitting ways?
These comments here are not to help or educate the user just trying go find blame where there is none.
Is the new policy that if you split ways you are banned? Sounds like some users forgot osm is a community ...
92015-10-07 10:57:59 UTCZain Ahmad Hashmi Dear Frederik,

I am working on behalf of company called ‘PIE Mapping’. They are in the middle of migrating to OSM platform. I have been assigned a task to split the OSM street links as these links are not split to its junctions. In some places they are slightly longer and does not fit...
12015-09-08 22:02:21 UTCDaveF Hi mdt3k
Could you explain in more detail what you've done generally, & specifically the Kelston & Swinford relations?

If changesets are problematic the creators needs to correct their own errors & revert them.
22015-09-09 08:23:42 UTCSomeoneElse certainly looks a bit problematic, in that there seems to be an unfeasibly thin bit of the natural=wood to the east of the stream. I'd suggest that it doesn't make sense to use a multipolygon for this area of woodland at all - ...
32015-09-10 11:18:53 UTCmdt3k Hi,

Thanks for the feedback. My intent was to map the farmland in the area between the A420 and the A431. Rather than create a new area/way by tracing along the outlines of the roads, existing residential landuses etc., I opted to create a multipolygon, re-using existing of ways as required. In s...
42015-09-10 17:54:15 UTCSomeoneElse If it helps, here's an example of what I've done nearer to home:

Survey and map all the field boundaries, gates, stiles, hedges and fences first, then reuse the fence / hedge nodes for a separate farmland way. It's not the only way to do things - jus...
52015-09-11 11:14:56 UTCmdt3k That looks good. I will try and use a similar model. I will adapt this set of changes as I have time to reflect this.
62015-09-12 12:14:31 UTCDaveF
Hi mdt3k
I believe making OSM more entropic by unnecessarily splitting way makes it more confusing & harder for others to edit.
Instead of splitting & creating an unnecessary relation for this residential area: the farmland way should be dr...
72015-09-12 17:02:36 UTCmdt3k Thanks for the feedback Dave, I'll sort those out.
82015-09-22 23:06:56 UTCDaveF Thos were just a couple of examples. You've placed many ways on the roads that need to be offset.

Please be aware farmland is meant to be used to map individual fields, not swathes of land

Rather than split every entity up into small sections & spend a lot of time creating relations, why ...
92015-09-23 21:40:17 UTCmdt3k Hi Dave, I have updated the problems highlighted, and the relation no longer uses the roads.

Regarding the intent for landuse=farmland, I do not believe this is clear. No conclusion was reached on the tagging mailing list, and the wiki is not explicit.

I believe am using landuse=farmland in a ...
12015-08-28 22:44:18 UTCDaveF Do you know what it is now? Still derelict?
22015-08-29 09:37:49 UTCrwendland Soon to be demolished I think - they are now partly security fenced, as part of the £110 million RUH North development. Buildings to the south, like the mortuary, are certainly being prepared for demolition.

I'm new to OpenStreetMap, and not sure what should be done when they are demolished...
12015-08-20 22:17:16 UTCndm Good to see some more builings being added. Shop, pub and other way outllines still need "building=yes" otherwise they won't render.
22015-08-21 09:06:57 UTCDaveF Hi
I deleted the relations you created. They're not really required in this instance - ways can be overlaid, & it's difficult to to see things such as the playground if hidden in a relation.
12015-08-13 10:06:06 UTCDaveF Hi again
Ways don't have to be split at nodes with tags, such as stiles, It better if a way is as joined up a it can be. I've connected the relevant ones.
Dave F.
12015-07-17 15:04:33 UTCDaveF Welcome to OSM.

Actually you added an extra barrier, but I sorted it out by removing the tags on the nodes. I also amended all the other barriers so they don't join the roads.
22015-07-17 15:11:03 UTCDaiLaughing So tags aren't just labels they affect the behaviour of the nodes? I knew I didn't understand what I was doing! Thanks for fixing it.
12015-06-05 17:51:12 UTCDaveF Ha! You beat me to it.

There's a slight updated plan Jan '15 amended road markings, loading bays etc.
Are you going to add the contraflow bike lane?
According to plan the call box is still there
22015-06-05 18:06:20 UTCDaveF
32015-06-06 01:39:58 UTCkrys h Ha I should have left it! Thought I'd give it a crack in case no one else did. Feel free to put more detail into it.

Can you move where one live intersectes another. For example Prior Park Road intersects the roundabout where the path down the side of the Church, but I'd like to separate these no...
42015-06-06 01:41:18 UTCkrys h Monday at work (I'm working at Council nowadays) I should be able to move the bus stops officially on the system. I don't know how often OSM syncs with the national database, but I see their positions are determined by Naptan which is what I should be editing.
12015-05-26 21:31:28 UTCDaveF Hi again
Could you ensure paths (& all ways) join up to each other otherwise routing won't work.
12015-05-25 13:09:09 UTCDaveF Please revert this erroneous edit.
22015-05-26 04:07:02 UTCcalfarome Thanks for your observation, I had an involuntary error, fixed the best possible, I will be very careful in my future editions.
12015-02-24 21:47:55 UTCDaveF Hi
The area for the pub was valid - it encompasses the building & any exterior land belonging to the business. Amended pub name tag to suit.
12015-02-09 16:32:03 UTCDaveF Hi
I notice you've removed barn/agricultural tags from buildings. Could you explain your reasoning? If the style of tag is incorrect then it should be amended, but I don't think relevant data should be deleted.
12015-01-30 16:16:43 UTCDaveF Ruth. These ways do not join. Please revert this changeset. Do not assume just because your software is telling you there's a problem that there actually is. A clue to your edit being incorrect is you extended the road to bridge.
22015-01-31 04:26:58 UTCruthmaben Dave - thank you, this edit is reverted now!
12015-01-05 01:27:02 UTCDaveF Hi
Unsure how you can describe a road between 2 other roads of the same classification as a 'link'. Especially when they have the same reference. Please clarify.
22015-01-05 14:32:11 UTCal_t The Cumberland Basin is a very complex set of junctions, ramps, flyovers and underpasses. My aim is to improve this section of the map for road navigation. Ultimately this should have lane data ( ), but that is a lot of work.

The changes I made here were ...
12014-12-18 15:30:05 UTCDaveF Hi Welshie
Out of curiosity, which map did you get the road new road layout from? The OS Streetview appears to be at least a year out of date.

Dave F.
22014-12-31 16:34:32 UTCWelshie I tried to reply to the email, which may not have got through. It was very approximately from a developer's sales brochure. Full survey via GPS or newer imagery welcome.
12014-11-13 12:29:56 UTCDaveF Bromley Heath Rd, Bristol: Are you sure that's the A4174? I think it got renumbered:

What OS OpenData did you use for these amendments & is it up to...
22014-11-13 18:59:18 UTCtms13 I was using StreetView on - it seems not to have been updated since November.

I've changed the ref to A4017 as you suggest, and set old_ref to avoid any future confusion. (changeset 26762646)
