12018-04-26 09:32:49 UTCnevw Hi
I reverted this edit to correct an accidental shift of a node. I then re-mapped the 22 Gram Cafe. All is ok now.
22018-04-26 09:37:46 UTCnevw Cafe re-mapped
12018-04-22 22:23:34 UTCnevw You should not be deleting what you consider to be 'unnecessary amount of footpaths'. Others like pedestrian, disability scooters, elderly, pram users may find those more useful than you. It is an general rule when editing OSM that we don't delete what others have gone to the trouble to map, even mi...
22018-04-22 22:43:30 UTCnevw You can feel free to delete anything you mapped yourself I suppose.
32018-04-22 22:56:04 UTCnevw I expect all the ones you deleted may have been added by you so you can ignore my comments.
I find it a bit difficult to see the history of things after they have been deleted.
42018-04-23 10:29:06 UTCLance Gorgan Yeah sorry, I added those footpaths awhile ago and decided to remove them as I figured footpaths aren't as frequent around the area and it just seemed weird. More like unnecessary clutter I guess.
12018-04-20 23:46:41 UTCnevw Hi
what are you trying to map? I see four short parallel lines with no tags through some crop rows.
This is a public map.
12018-04-20 23:24:51 UTCnevw Hi, welcome to mapping.
You appear to have deleted many of the buildings that others have added to the map. It is usual that we don't delete others work unless it is wrong. Many of the buildings that you have added don't follow the building outlines and many of your edits are just a rough square de...
12018-04-20 23:13:06 UTCnevw You have placed the business on the roadway. Please relocate it to where the business operates from or delete it.
12018-04-14 01:21:36 UTCnevw Hi
why is there a string of html type text in the description tag on Sassafras Creek?
22018-04-16 08:48:45 UTCaharvey Looks like that goes back to older versions of the way
32018-04-16 10:49:06 UTCnevw OK, it displays ok on the deep history page so might as well be left as is I suppose.

I noticed a small section of stream along Sassafras Creek that needs splitting and the name added
42018-04-16 12:03:33 UTCaharvey It shouldn't display like that though

Either way the data in the description means nothing so we should remove it. I am wondering where this data was originally imported from though, since we can't use the CC BY license tasLIST data I suspect ...
52018-04-16 12:33:26 UTCnevw Agreed.
Greyim was at the start of the edit history so might shed some light.
62018-04-16 12:54:42 UTCnevw PLANACC in an html like string seems endemic in Tassie
Run this...(6Mb)
Likely a big hydro data import years ago.
72018-04-25 22:14:32 UTCgreyim Hi folks... sorry my edits may be a bit odd.. many the streams I added a ways back from Geoscience Aust 1:250000 which I understand is a legit source... however they are quite low res and in many places better Bing traces have been made by various contributors. This sassafras stream being one such. ...
82018-04-25 22:18:37 UTCgreyim The html in the description I think comes from fields in the geosci data, some of which also use capitals. At present displays like mapnik simply ignore these so if they were removed somehow it wouldnt matter?
12018-04-16 05:45:34 UTCkeeponpedalling This Track has been named Switchbacks for some time now but it wasn't always named that. I changed it back to Pipeline Express because of an old refewrence to it by that name. If anyone has accurate knowledge of it's original name please let us know.
22018-04-16 07:32:39 UTCnevw Hi
You could also add old_name or alt_name if useful.
12018-04-09 13:15:49 UTCnevw Welcome to the OpenStreetMap Michael Dobson. I have noticed unusual mapping by you this evening, including changing the shape of buildings on the Warburton Golf Club, shifting The Patchwork Tea House from it's location on to the Warburton Highway and finally deleting the the Warburton Golf Club enti...
22018-04-11 12:58:45 UTCnevw I have reverted the changesets around the Warburton Golf Club area to original state after no response from query of unusual edits.
12018-04-10 12:32:17 UTCnevw Reverted changeset 57968196:
Highway tag removed incorrectly.
Poi added to park area instead of correct address location.
12018-04-10 09:06:09 UTCnevw In Broome, you have deleted an area tagged as natural=scrub which appears to be still scrub on satellite imagery. Has this been recently redeveloped into another residential area?
You have deleted an area tagged as landuse=residential which appears to be correctly applied to a residential housing...
12018-04-05 17:15:42 UTCnevw I don't think we have explicit permission to use QldGlobe data in the OSM
22018-04-06 04:03:28 UTCnevw Hi galacticism
I raised the issue on
and it seems we are unable to use the DNRME QLDGlobe data yet.
Are you able to revert or undo those parts of your mapping that used this data. There is a 'revert changeset' plugin f...
12018-04-04 00:23:42 UTCnevw I reversed my change and left as two one member MPs but would be ideally mapped by sharing common segments as MPs instead of single polygon with overlapping ways.
...but their is differing opinion on this so have left alone.
Should be either shared ways in MP or single polygon but not single memb...
22018-04-05 13:29:02 UTCKeith What is MP ways?
32018-04-05 14:02:21 UTCnevw Hi Keith
Multipolygon (MP)

Sorry, I dislike unexplained acronyms too.
12018-03-29 08:19:44 UTCnevw Is it common for residents to place a name on their residence in Port Hedland? Used to be more common early to mid last century but name signs are not often observed from the street much these days.
22018-03-30 13:59:18 UTCnevw Could no see the name ‘The Ossis’ on imagery. Would you mind if I changed the name to ‘Millard Horizon’ which I can read on imagery?
32018-04-05 05:29:16 UTCnevw no response - decided not to use only name visible on imagery ‘Millard Horizon’ and deleted 'The Oasis'
42018-04-05 07:17:39 UTCpilbrob Hi NevW. Millard Horizon is the name of a caravan parked outside the house, so I don’t think that’s an appropriate tag.

It’s not common to name houses in this area of the world, but some people do it. We have a wooden sign screwed on to the house, with the listed name on it (was...
12018-04-02 13:28:23 UTCnevw This is a public map. You have marked two places of worship with name 'home' and neither look like religious places.
Are they? or is it a mistake?
22018-04-05 05:23:43 UTCnevw no response - removed 2 place_of_worships that appear to be a mapping error
12018-04-02 13:46:45 UTCnevw This is a public map.You have added a node with name= Dinner ritual
Any reason why this should not be deleted?
22018-04-05 05:18:28 UTCnevw no response - removed node
12018-04-03 00:48:08 UTCnevw Hi
You appear to have placed 2 Pokolbin Halls in the middle of paddocks. Have they been constructed more recently that the satellite imagery or is this a mistake?
22018-04-05 05:00:56 UTCnevw I have mapped in correct location
12018-03-30 09:32:57 UTCnevw Hi Frostt
you will find that the Esri imagery is much clearer than Bing currently in your area.
12018-03-28 09:54:13 UTCnevw You have deleted part of Darling Drive and Ultimo. Is this a correct, beginners error or vandalism?
22018-03-28 09:58:31 UTCnevw Looks to be wrong to me so I have reverted your changeset. The junction and part of Darling Drive and Ultimo Road restored.
12018-03-28 04:04:54 UTCnevw Should the section of the road that extends from the section you changed, through the roundabout from Hadley St to Franston-Dandenong Rd, also be changed from Loma to Lorna or is that section correct?
22018-03-28 07:24:36 UTCQi CHEN Good spotting! I've updated both.
32018-03-28 09:41:08 UTCnevw Thanks.
12018-03-21 10:36:13 UTCnevw Hi
normally proposed ways get tagged with highway=proposed plus proposed=residential (or other type as appropriate) plus other tags like the name. Then once construction starts you can change to highway=construction.
22018-03-24 10:57:38 UTCnevw Note that highway=proposed does not render on the standard layer on OSM, but when construction begins and the tags are changed to highway=construction it will be rendered.
12018-03-21 10:22:01 UTCnevw I notice that with this changeset you have used uppercase names. It is usual to use mixed case.
22018-03-27 00:13:15 UTCaharvey Also see In this case the cricket ground is better mapped with leisure=pitch + sport=cricket rather than the descriptive name.
12018-03-21 10:13:47 UTCnevw There is a cycleway sign on the part north of Henderson Road that you have changed to footway. If it has a cyleway sign it is expected it would be tagged as a cycleway normally. In this case it is a shared way.
12018-03-19 13:57:52 UTCnevw I deleted these because they have been put them on the roadway instead of the 27 Norwood Crescent building which is a long way from where you entered the data. When you locate the building at #27 then add the tags to it instead of the roadway. Only add a name if the building really has a name, which...
12018-03-17 07:01:37 UTCTheSwavu Hi,

Went on a walk to Bullocks Hut today and was unable to find this path:
on the ground at either end (had a sign up about rehabilitation at the car park end).

Don't want to delete it myself as I don't know how clearly visible this path was (it m...
22018-03-17 07:54:06 UTCnevw I too am reluctant to delete trails as sections sometimes almost disappear whilst other parts are more easily followed and it only takes a bit of effort by a few to bring the trail back to good condition. I am inclined to use the visibility tags in such situations so that it at least gives others a ...
12018-03-17 04:11:08 UTCnevw There is no mention of this site on the website you tagged. Is it open yet?
22018-03-17 04:37:31 UTCVinicios Rigotti There is no mention of the 'Sorry Grandma' website because it closed. The bar/entertainment venue that opened in the place (Holy Moley) was included with the website tag
32018-03-17 05:40:31 UTCnevw Sorry, my mistake, yes it is there afterall. The website defaults to show the nearest to me and missed the link to see other locations.
12018-03-15 07:33:48 UTCnevw Hi tonyf1
I added the boundaries for the 3 Selby Bushland Reserves using CAPD 2014.
The CAPAD 2016 boundaries are the same but we don't have the necessary waiver signed signed to be able to use in OSM yet as far as I can tell.
22018-03-27 03:07:15 UTCaharvey Actually we do have the necessary waiver completed, so legally can use CAPAD 2014 or 2016. See

12018-03-14 05:27:12 UTCnevw Hi Pwnedragon19
you have added too much detail with the Ashmont Pond Canal and water supply.
Just the real stuff on the ground is sufficient, thanks.
22018-03-16 05:56:46 UTCWarin61 Deleted the canal and water supply. Crosses boundaries in LPI Base Map, not eveident in LPI Imagery. Real stuff only in OSM please.

The buildings should be 'square' - use the S key in iD to do this.

The Finger Park looks like it should be larger .. use the LPI Base Map.

Ok? .. Keep mappi...
12018-03-13 14:58:58 UTCnevw Use addr:housenumber and addr:street tags to correctly add the info to osm if you want routers to find the place. See osm wiki.
12018-03-11 07:11:40 UTCnevw Hi FlyBoi
if the building labeled 'My Jet' is not really the name of the building but a personal tag for your aircraft, you might like to delete that tag as the OpenStreetMap is not suitable for personal tags.
22018-03-12 10:02:27 UTCnevw This Bendigo Airport info site lists My Jet as a tenant
12018-03-11 04:28:07 UTCnevw This appears to be a normal suburban street with no through way. How can it be oneway=reversible.
Vehicles appear to be facing both directions in the satellite imagery and it appears wide enough for cars to travel in both directions all ...
12018-03-10 08:20:26 UTCnevw Seems to be an edit war on the correct name for this beach. Regardless of that, you have named a section of the coastline instead of the name on the beach polygon. Is that intentional?
22018-03-10 08:51:27 UTCnevw Please ignore my comment. The beaches multipolygon is incorrect and needs splitting up to individual named beaches.
I will do that when I have more info.
32018-03-10 09:06:25 UTCnevw I think the individual beach polygons and names are correct now. I will check some of it further tomorrow.
12018-03-09 12:00:51 UTCnevw We don’t normally name the drinking taps we map.
12018-03-07 06:41:03 UTCnevw Hi
the linked images depict where you need to correct the mapping.
A footway node is not connected to the intended way.
You have joined 2 footway nodes to the suburb boundary. In OSM we don't connect other ways to suburb boundaries.
12018-03-06 05:43:27 UTCnevw The correct method for mapping your business location is to put all the details of the business on a node or a polygon of the building at where business is located only.
22018-03-07 02:51:51 UTCnevw no response, I have shifted Chaise Sofas from the industrial area boundary it was mapped to and have re-mapped to the building I expect it occupies.
12018-03-03 23:50:18 UTCnevw You have mapped an apartment to the middle of a roadway. Can you shift it to the building it occupies thanks.
22018-03-07 02:35:05 UTCnevw no response, deleted appartment mapped in middle of roadway instead of building.
12018-02-27 11:02:09 UTCnevw Hi Thomas
you mapped a lookout here. The Mt Oberon Lookout is already mapped about 25m from your edit. Do you think both need to be mapped?
22018-03-07 02:30:57 UTCnevw no response, deleted.
12018-02-23 10:55:06 UTCnevw Hi
You have renamed Florey Street to Antsey Street but your note says it has been renamed to Antsey Court.
Can you check which is correct thanks.
22018-03-07 02:26:52 UTCnevw I have checked out the streets and fixed now as far as I can see.
12018-03-03 23:42:37 UTCnevw You have put Cathi's house in the middle of the roadway. Can you shift it to the building it occupies please.
22018-03-04 08:13:57 UTCtonyf1 Also, is Cathi's house really a guest house or a private home?
32018-03-07 02:18:59 UTCtonyf1 Hi nevw, delete this node?
42018-03-07 02:23:29 UTCnevw Yes, thanks.
I have had no response yet.
52018-03-07 03:18:49 UTCtonyf1 No reply to comments, deleted guest house, misplaced and probably private residence
12018-03-06 05:49:48 UTCnevw Hi
when a footway crosses a road you need to join the footway and the road with a node at that point unless the the footway goes under the road (tunnel tag used on that section) or over the road (bridge used on that section.
12018-03-04 11:04:40 UTCnevw Hi Bknomad
Could you elaborate a little about this attraction.
12018-02-27 11:06:24 UTCnevw A newly invented tag "about" ???
12018-02-26 10:19:52 UTCnevw You added many tags but the most important is the tag to say what kind of shop you have. eg shop=fabric or craft=handicraft. If you are operating from your residential house then not needed I guess.
I guess you are familiar with the osm wiki and help pages to be able to find the most suitable tags....
12018-02-24 09:19:40 UTCnevw Using Id you double click on the node to join it to both ways.
12018-02-24 09:06:11 UTCnevw You appear to duplicated the southern part of Blencowes Firetrail. Instead of using a gps trace to aid adding a way manually to the map you seem to have turned the gps trace into a way directly and added too many unnecessary points. It is better (imho) to use gps traces with realigned satellite imag...
12018-02-22 00:22:28 UTCWilson Yung Hi, Could you please explain why you added a grave yard with specific ppl's name in the name?
22018-02-22 07:47:42 UTCnevw I would assume this to be an historical grave site of white pioneer settlers in an old farming area that are common in rural Australia.
32018-02-22 11:00:21 UTCnevw Though I have not been able to find any info regarding this using internet. ?
42018-02-22 11:11:13 UTCPapa Fletch Wilson Yung, nevw is correct. It is an historical grave site noted on several local tourist guides. I marked it when I found it.

12018-02-19 11:16:02 UTCnevw From what I can ascertain there does not appear to be a Total Asbestos Removal Brisbane company at 41/7 Boyd Street. Are you located inside the Cloudland Apartment complex? If so, can customers attend - if not, explain that in the description tag or a note=.... tag.

12018-02-15 10:36:01 UTCnevw I shifted Gratia Folonomo cafe node from the roadway to the nearest building. I'll leave it up to you to place it on the correct building it occupies.
12018-02-13 00:33:00 UTCClipArtJoel Is this really a military zone?
22018-02-13 01:57:29 UTCnevw
12018-02-12 13:41:05 UTCnevw Welcome to the OSM.
Editing of the public is expected to be based on some realism.
It is not just your private art display.
12018-02-12 02:07:20 UTCnevw Hi Padawan69
the park you have mapped appears not to be a public space and occupies the boundaries several local backyards.
12018-02-07 11:37:25 UTCnevw Hi rangykoo
Your edits appear incorrect to me.
The 'Proserpine' coffee shop is in Mackay and appears to be at a Caltex service station.
The Dyer Close tourism apartment is mapped on the middle of the Dyer Close roadway in what appears a residential area.
Are they in need of amendment?
22018-02-07 12:39:52 UTCrangykoo Yeh, sorry. I didn't realise they were going online. I thought I was judt placing a marker on the route between cairns and brisbane. Looking or rest stops! How to fixed it up please?
32018-02-07 19:43:22 UTCnevw Hi rangykoo
Thanks for the quick reply. I will easily fix it in the morning. Cheers, Nev
12018-02-02 11:30:35 UTCnevw These are the only criteria we use to classify roads
Visual considerations are not included.
12018-01-23 06:38:45 UTCnevw Hi deryadilmen
I noticed there are two traffic lights on the Brooker Highway heading to the northwest, where Goodwood Road joins from the right. Is that correct?
22018-01-23 18:26:05 UTCderyadilmen Really good question. What I see from the Bing aerial imagery is there is a traffic light on the separator of Brooker Highway and on the otherside of the Brooker highway next to Snowground Service road.
32018-01-27 21:32:34 UTCLeon K Hi, I had mapped this to more recent imagery than Bing to reflect construction in the area.
See the ESRI imagery for example.

Before I do it again, i wanted to let you know so please do not undo it again.
42018-01-29 17:19:19 UTCderyadilmen Great, thank you for the correction.
12018-01-17 05:53:11 UTCnevw I reverted this changeset due to the accidental shifting of roadway nodes.
12018-01-16 07:26:45 UTCnevw Hi gkholmes
you need to join the ends of the path to Rodger Place & Hopkins Highway so that pedestrian and cycle routing will work, even though in the satellite imagery the footway ends before the mapped centre line of the roads.
12018-01-15 13:06:49 UTCnevw We don’t have permission to use Google maps to assist with osm mapping - just use the imagery provided in the editors.
12018-01-14 02:54:42 UTCnevw Hi deanmaxx, welcome to OSM.
You should bear this discussion in mind when joining area nodes to roadways.
At some time in the future someone is likely going to have to disconnect all of them and map separately from the roadways.
12018-01-13 11:32:47 UTCnevw Hi
Please place the address tags on the building instead of the roadway thanks.
12018-01-13 03:06:40 UTCnevw no response from Elegant Smiles to shift tags from roadway to correct building location and is now deleted.
12018-01-13 02:38:08 UTCnevw Please shift your business location from the footway to the building that it occupies.
12018-01-12 11:16:08 UTCnevw This one too seems to be mostly tolerable but description is spam.
12018-01-12 11:12:58 UTCnevw Hi Sai
could you elaborate why this has been deleted.
The web site appears to confirm a physical location as mapped.
The description is however a bit spammy.
12018-01-12 11:04:01 UTCnevw Hi Sai
can you elaborate on why this has been deleted. It seems to have be tagged ok and website confirms the business site
12018-01-08 00:53:38 UTCnevw deleted, no bakery or glenhuntly Road here.
12018-01-08 00:52:44 UTCnevw deleted, no pharmacy here
12017-09-25 11:16:16 UTCSanniu This pharmacy is in the middle of nowhere - there are fields in that point. Can you move it to the actual position?
22018-01-08 00:50:46 UTCnevw deleted, no pharmacy here.
12018-01-07 00:24:51 UTCnevw Please moved your business location off the roadway and onto the physical location where your business is located. I don't see any land along Cherrybrook Chase that is likely to be #293. Only businesses that have a shopfront at the place where you have mapped should be mapped.
22018-01-07 00:29:27 UTCnevw From the website listed I believe this is only a PO address and will be deleted.
PO BOX 293 Cherrybrook Sydney NSW 2126
32018-01-07 08:52:18 UTCnevw reverted this changeset as no response and obviously incorrectly mapped in wrong position.
12018-01-06 12:43:37 UTCnevw Please remove the business phone number from the name. It is meant to be the name only. You already have the phone number listed.
12018-01-04 04:29:58 UTCnevw You need to shift the Elegant Smiles dentistry clinic info from the roadway node to the actual building position it occupies, preferably by mapping the building shape too.
12018-01-03 10:11:09 UTCnevw Name is for name only. Leave phone # in the phone tag only.
12018-01-02 09:15:41 UTCnevw It would have been better to not delete the track and instead add tags to indicate access type and other tags to indicate condition and steepness.
22018-01-02 10:59:20 UTCRex di Bona Actually, it would have been even better to remove it as part of O'Haras Creek Road (Because it actually isn't) and add a new fire trail in its place. But I wasn't confident in performing that action.

O'Haras creek road (as listed by the government) ends in a dead end at about the point indicated...
32018-01-02 11:16:48 UTCRex di Bona Thank You nevw for your suggestion. I have added back the fire trail as a firetrail, and corrected Griffin Place as well.
42018-01-02 11:25:58 UTCnevw That looks better to me, Thanks.
I added a few more tags based on your description and it now renders ok. Regards
52018-01-02 11:27:46 UTCnevw I notice the fire trail is well depicted by Stava users so may be accessible to hikers and mountain bike riders.
62018-01-02 11:55:39 UTCnevw I also added a gate at each end of the fire trail
12017-12-30 07:25:04 UTCnevw There is no point in adding this to the OpenStreetMap if you do not have a physical building location to map the details to. The OSM is not a business directory. If you do not have a physical address point where your business is located then Google Maps is the best solution for you needs.
22017-12-31 03:19:25 UTCnevw Removed Shuttlemate Airport Transfers & Tours as it appears to have no physical location in Palmwoods for customers to attend. See their website:
12017-12-30 11:27:45 UTCnevw There is a tool in iD for squaring the buildings and will make all the angles = 90 degrees.
22017-12-30 11:28:17 UTCnevw
12017-12-29 11:06:03 UTCnevw You need to locate this a your physical business address to use on the OpenStreetMap.
Also please use the documented syntacs for the opening hours.
12017-12-19 23:34:19 UTCBenny Goodman Hi nevw,

I'm wondering how it's possible to create a new, extremely wrong farm multipolygon while doing a maproulette cleanup task?

Just kidding,
but I'm still interested in the reason.

22017-12-20 06:30:09 UTCnevw Mate, that's too long ago for me to remember. You can put them duplicate segments back if you wish :)
Greetings for Christmas and New Year.
32017-12-20 09:00:52 UTCnevw Hi Benny
I had a look in Josm, then reverted the changeset, then used the JOSM Validator on the polygon and found the problem was at this position…

I then un-did the revert (back to what Map Roulette did to it) and saw...
12017-12-13 01:34:39 UTCnevw This changeset was placed on a roadway node so have reverted it. You need to place it on the building outline that it occupies.
12017-12-05 19:32:47 UTC红旗渠 Hi Leon,

have you really used Bing as source? On Bing these roads are not visible yet.

22017-12-06 11:32:35 UTCnevw DigitalGlobe Standard Imagery is more recent than Bing in this area.
32017-12-06 15:50:22 UTC红旗渠 I know this, I've used DigitalGlobe to map the [Tesla Battery](
12017-11-23 10:32:53 UTCnevw You need a physical presence on the ground like a shop to enter your business details into the OpenStreetMap. You have placed a node over what appears to be a house but you have only entered PO, phone and website details.

22017-12-03 22:14:44 UTCaharvey Probably best to remove, as no response and can't see any visible signage outside from Mapillary.
32017-12-05 08:41:01 UTCnevw Reverted Changeset: 54021439 as no physical business presence on the ground evident or mapped and no response from original mapper.
12017-12-02 04:53:53 UTCnevw I would like to know the reason you have deleted the Proposed Melbourne Airport Railway Line that was recently mapped.
As it is amongst the most useful map information for many users, are you replacing it with more complete information?
22017-12-03 08:12:20 UTCnevw I now agree with the deletion of the proposed Melbourne Airport Railway Line until the proposal is more defined. Seems even the route is not decided or the time frame from my reading though I am not a local.
12017-12-01 13:46:29 UTCnevw Can you use a more sensible comment than “Pokemon GO” as it draws everyones attention, probably unecessarily, to your edits. Pokemon GO fantasy edits are not wanted.
12017-12-01 08:36:40 UTCnevw When you finish doing random things in your park, can you delete this as the OSM is public and meant for genuine verifiable items, unless this is a public park signed as Random Park.
12017-12-01 06:50:39 UTCnevw Hi
I added the tag highway=footway to the footway at the end of Chartley Street.
While you are in the area can you check the footway from Eaton Close as it goes through a house and seems out of place.
12017-11-30 03:32:33 UTCnevw These 3 businesses still appear on another well known map. Should this changeset be reverted to reinstate them?
22017-11-30 03:47:54 UTCOliver G The three businesses are not in this location they are in a different part of Queens Pde. I have added them in the correct place and deleted the wrong ones.
32017-11-30 03:53:04 UTCnevw Yes, I remember shifting down the street to see them now. Keep up the excellent mapping :)
42017-11-30 03:55:20 UTCOliver G Thanks, will do. I live in the CH/FN area so should be able to keep it up to date as best possible.
12017-11-30 03:42:12 UTCnevw This is a public map. It seems you have added private details of you friends houses lately. If so, they should be deleted.
12017-11-30 03:19:03 UTCnevw This looks correctly mapped now. Perhaps you could add bicycle=yes if you think suitable. Routers take longer to update their data than the standard layer of the osm.
12017-11-29 04:42:23 UTCnevw Please remove all your edits. This is a public map and not for childrens fantasy games.
22017-11-29 12:21:42 UTCnevw I have reverted the fantasy type edits.
You are encouraged to keep mapping :)
The OpenStreetMap is only for mapping those things that really exist on the ground and is a public map.
12017-11-29 04:45:12 UTCnevw Please remove your edits as this is a public map and not suitable for childrens fantasy games.
22017-11-29 12:06:18 UTCnevw fixed by WoodWoseWulf
12017-11-21 06:40:11 UTCtonyf1 Hi. That's a lot of deletions. Where did Coles and Myer move to? What happened?
22017-11-21 21:12:05 UTCCD123 they did not move i deleted them
32017-11-22 02:24:54 UTCnevw Can you tell us why you deleted them, CD123?
Was it an accidental deletion?
42017-11-23 04:42:31 UTCtonyf1 Hi CD123. I assume your deletions were either an accident or you didn't realise you were editing the public map. On this basis I have reverted your edits with Changeset #54016899
12017-11-22 02:14:09 UTCnevw This type of listing of a business without a physical address is unsuitable for the OpenStreetMap. You need to use the Google map for that instead.
12017-11-21 10:51:49 UTCGerdP Hi!
I've noticed this changeset because of the unusual tag highway=4wd_only.
Maybe use surface=* and smoothness=* to describe that a 4wd is needed the tag highway=* should describe what the road is used for. See also
22017-11-21 10:54:57 UTCBrackoNe I have foundout few minutes ago that I can use surface:grade=0 for AWD vehicles.

Thank you anyway.
32017-11-21 13:21:36 UTCnevw The tag 4wd_only=recommended is derived from the Australian Tagging Guidelines:
42017-11-25 08:08:25 UTCGerdP Hi!
Why is the road still tagged as highway=4wd_only ?
52017-11-27 09:37:42 UTCBrackoNe OK, I have fixed it.
62017-11-27 09:44:27 UTCGerdP Please add surface=* as well, as the meaning of surface:grade=0 is only clear when the surface is known.
72017-11-27 09:46:58 UTCBrackoNe Done. Thanks.
12017-11-19 09:14:44 UTCGerdP Hi and welcome to OSM!
You changed the road class from highway=tertiary to the unusual value minor.
If I got that right the road is only used to get closer to the Philosopher Falls, so I think it is a highway=service + surface=unpaved.

22017-11-19 11:19:50 UTCajp99 Thanks GerdP
I am not very experienced with OSM tags so I was not quite sure how to classify the road. Your comments have helped and I have used your suggestion. I also notice that somehow I didn't actually add the 'steps' tag, which I have done.
32017-11-19 11:44:33 UTCGerdP Yes, and I still don't see any highway=steps ;-)
42017-11-20 08:47:52 UTCnevw Steps at end of the the walk I expect and look ok.
12017-11-18 03:56:21 UTCnevw Hi
you will likely find that using DigitalGlobe Standard Imagery will give you the latest imagery if needed.
12017-11-17 10:25:53 UTCnevw Hi
I shifted the node for your business off the centre of Newcastle Street to the nearest building. Can your relocate it to the correct building that your occupy and not on to the street. I also added craft=locksmith to your tags. Actually tagged the type of office, shop or craft seems to be the mo...
22017-11-17 22:45:40 UTCtonyf1 This appears to be a duplicate of on the south side of the road and probably the correct location
32017-11-18 01:53:57 UTCnevw Thanks tonyf1
I shifted the tags to the correct location node.
12017-11-16 13:27:35 UTCnevw That is not the way to add an address to the map. Please have a read of the osm beginner guides
22017-11-16 13:54:01 UTCnevw Please ignore, I seee there may be a reason for this edit, considering your other prolific edits.

22017-11-16 09:16:30 UTCxdiamondx I noticed my mistake after I read this "meme" on the openstreetmap subreddit on reddit

What should I do? manually re-align the wooded area /grass/residential area?
32017-11-16 09:18:42 UTCxdiamondx Also can I start mapping roads with area:highway if that is technically correct?
42017-11-16 09:20:42 UTCnevw It's not really a mistake so I would leave as is unless it bothers you. My preference is to not merge them but others differ.
52017-11-16 09:23:38 UTCnevw I haven't considered mapping roads with area:highway so no opinion from me.
62017-11-16 09:24:58 UTCxdiamondx take a look at this proposal - it looks pretty awesome
72017-11-16 09:47:22 UTCnevw Yes, I have come across this recently somewhere else, but is too detailed for me, though I do see the merits of dedicated mapping in that manner.
12017-11-15 14:41:22 UTCnevw The usual method is to not delete the ways but to add access=no or access=private tags to the ways
12017-11-15 11:39:30 UTCnevw Hi
can you check the name please as I see Coakers Lane is labeled as Coakers Road on the LPI NSW Basemap as well as others maps.
22017-11-15 12:30:19 UTCsylloge fixed, I've been calling it a lane for 5 years incorrectly
32017-11-15 13:07:57 UTCnevw Thanks
12017-11-14 13:28:59 UTCnevw You appear to have deleted part of the gazetted boundary of the state forest that runs closely parallel to the right of Barakula Road. If you zoom in close on the Digiglobe imagery you can see a line following the portion you have deleted - possibly a fence line or powerline that is gazetted to be o...
22017-11-15 09:56:51 UTCporjo @nevw yes you're right - my guess would be powerline, but I'm not sure. If you look at the source boundary data from Queensland State Government, there are similar such corridors all over the place which aren't part of the OSM data. So this corridor was a bit of an anomaly in that sense.
32017-11-15 11:09:41 UTCnevw I prefer to have the lines mapped as they are gazetted. The corridors are outside of the the boundary being mapped and often indicate current or planned infrastructure reserved areas or section that are managed by some entity and mapping the excluded parts is useful information too.
I notice that o...
12017-11-14 13:33:37 UTCnevw Can you fix it right the tagging of the opening hours format thanks.
12017-11-14 12:11:12 UTCnevw Hi
please zoom in much closer when doing this type of editing as you have crossing building lines, building connected to part of parkland and two separate buildings joined together. You can what went astray if you zoom in close on this page
22017-11-23 15:00:40 UTCDidz Great to see you contributed, hope to see more fellow local.
12017-11-14 12:06:39 UTCnevw I reverted OTB Products Pty Ltd changeset due to a busstop being shifted to incorrect location and road being extended incorrectly across school buildings during spammy adding of business details.
22017-11-14 12:07:30 UTCnevw The details of what went astray are here:
12017-11-14 11:51:20 UTCnevw Hi
I added highway=service otherwise it will not render.
I think you intended to show that the roads are private access only.
I expect these are the tags to give the result you wanted.
12017-11-14 11:42:22 UTCnevw I reverted your edit because you accidentally moved the Toyota Dealership to wrong area and added 2 nodes with different tags for your business. One node was for addr:housenumber 7 and the other addr:housenumber 730. You can view what went astray here
12017-11-06 13:16:27 UTCnevw Hi
just pointing out that the lines you deleted may have been address interpolation lines.
See here:
(I didn't have a close look at at this though)
22017-11-07 02:15:40 UTCLeith Bade Sorry I thought they were powerlines.

How does one view the original data to check?
32017-11-07 02:30:49 UTCnevw You can view the changesets in the area here

Then select the square that has the changeset and select the [A] for that changeset and you will go to this page
42017-11-07 18:58:15 UTCLeith Bade Ah thats handy, yes it does look there was an address tag in it. Can you please revert it?

12017-11-06 13:33:49 UTCnevw Hi Peter
normally the whole area of the industrial estate would have the tag landuse=industrial and it has, but each of the buildings in that area would have buidling=industrial instead of a landuse tag.
12017-11-06 13:26:56 UTCnevw Hi Peter, can you correct this mistake thanks.
12017-11-03 23:05:15 UTCaharvey How is this signposted on the ground? If it says left turn only then it's better to map it as only_left_turn rather than with the no_straight_on. only_left_turn implies you can't go straight or or turn right already.
22017-11-03 23:49:11 UTCEvo_Evz Yes it's signposted left turn only but when I added left turn only and removed no straight on you were still able to go straight on according to the diagram. At the moment it has both. I didn't seem to be able to get it to not be able to go straight on just with a left turn only.
32017-11-04 00:04:31 UTCaharvey "according to the diagram" which diagram?

If the sign just says left turn only, then it should be mapped in OSM with an only_left_turn relation (and not with a no_straight_on as that is implied already by the only_left_turn).
42017-11-04 00:39:19 UTCEvo_Evz Is there anyway I can send you a screenshot? Might make things easier. Thanks for your time I really appreciate it. I would like to get more involved and I want to do things properly.

72017-11-04 04:02:56 UTCEvo_Evz Check out these two screenshots of the same screen. You can see the diagram I was talking about in one.

82017-11-04 04:26:07 UTCaharvey That diagram isn't showing what turn restrictions are in affect, it's showing you what ways you can select for the current turn restriction you are adding. So even with just the only_left_turn it will prevent routing straight through.
92017-11-04 05:00:08 UTCEvo_Evz Ok then I understand, and I can test the routing by using ORSM and it's routing correctly with only the Left Only Turn. Do I need the U turn restrictions with Left Turn Only? Thanks so much.

In regards to the other side of Willarong Rd heading south. Yes of course I shouldn't delete the small sec...
102017-11-04 06:58:13 UTCaharvey Glad to help. Be sure to sign up to the talk-au mailing list I'm organising an OSM event for later this month (will post details on the mailing list) and it would be a good opportunity to learn more about mapping and OSM, see what others are up to, a...
112017-11-05 08:29:43 UTCEvo_Evz Thanks, I subscribed to the mailing list but I'm away until 5th Dec. Thanks for the info on OSRM, oneway and U turns.

Both ends of Willarong Rd have only Left Turn Only assigned to it (and the U turn which I will remove) but the OSRM routes traffic straight through even after leaving one day to u...
122017-11-05 11:42:31 UTCaharvey The left_turn_only relation is missing some members for from and to and the role for the via node, see The relation needs 3 members, from via and to, but it only has one member the node and no role.
132017-11-06 08:02:16 UTCEvo_Evz I chose a good one for my first go! Yeah I finally figured out that I needed the from, via and to relation. You don't seem to be able to configure a mandatory restriction using the diagrams I sent you in the screenshots, only prohibitory restrictions.

I ran into problems configuring the to relati...
142017-11-06 09:31:41 UTCaharvey No worries, try this guid is also a good entry point for guides.

Yeah I had to split the way to add the turn restriction. Definitely try JOSM it's much better for relations. There you can fix ...
152017-11-06 20:08:45 UTCEvo_Evz I cleaned up that southbound left turn only rule into Kingsway. It looks just the same as the one you did opposite in regards to the relations. Have a look please if you don't mind. I'm not convinced it's correct because the one you did opposite is reflected in the diagram with a blue arrow where yo...
162017-11-07 22:33:24 UTCaharvey Getting closer... currently you have the members correct but spread across three relations for the left turn only each with a different member, but you need one relation with three members.

Try JOSM, it's much easier when working with relations and turn restrictions.

These are the 3:
172017-11-08 07:47:56 UTCEvo_Evz Finally! Ok I have used 7712221 which was the to relation for all members. 7713776 and 7717282 should be deleted. I'm pretty sure it's correct now but you better check my work. Thanks heaps for your help.
182017-11-08 10:12:52 UTCaharvey Looks fine, good job! There's plenty more missing turn restriction in OSM that are just waiting to be added.
192017-11-08 23:39:42 UTCEvo_Evz Great. It took a while but I got there in the end! Anything I see wrong driving or hiking around will be corrected. Thanks again.
12017-10-31 10:11:30 UTCnevw Do not use any Google products to edit or verify information on the Openstreetmap as we don't have their permission to do so.

32017-10-23 02:47:32 UTCnevw Yes, these comments make it clear that it is a peculiar name that begins with a lower case l.

12017-10-12 09:46:50 UTCnevw addr:street should only be the street name and should not include the house number

22017-09-02 12:38:25 UTCnevw I shifted it off the road centreline because editors rarely respond to requests. I will leave to you to put it on the correct building.
12017-08-30 10:04:27 UTCnevw Hi
I think you will find that the DigitalGlobe Standard Imagery is more recent and better aligned with gpx and Strava than Bing. I expect that the DigitalGlobe Standard Imagery is quite close in this area and does not need aligning any further.
12017-08-30 02:22:35 UTCnevw Hi *kv007*
I noticed you added several addr: tags to Petrie Street. The addr tag is normally only used to provide address information for buildings and facilities.
12017-08-29 12:24:55 UTCaharvey even if it translated, it's common in OSM not to add translations but only name:<lg> if the feature is known by that foreign language name. Although I'm not strongly one way or the other.
22017-08-29 12:55:41 UTCnevw Yes, I agree.
This one was a bit unusual and...
name=Manly Wharf\twas changed to name=Manly Wharf 玛丽海滩
So normally I would correct to...
name=Manly Wharf\t and add
But though it may be correct, Google translated to "Mary Beach" so I just left it as...
12017-08-24 07:35:21 UTCnevw Hi
the items you are mapping are not suitable for the OSM. They need to be physical features generally and have real geographical information. A poi with just a website and description or such info attached to an unrelated poi is considered spam. I think that such edits are likely ok to put on Goog...
12017-08-23 02:49:04 UTCnevw Please don't add web site items to false poi. Use Google for such items. They are not suitable for the OSM. Reverted,
12017-08-22 11:48:40 UTCnevw Please only add real physical items to the OSM that are verifiable on the ground.
12017-08-22 04:01:22 UTCnevw Please only map physical items that are verifiable on the ground. The recent edits of web sites with a description is not suitable for adding to the OSM.
If you want to advertise those please do so only on Google Maps.
12017-08-18 23:47:35 UTCWarin61 The relationship inner way touches the outer way ... that is not allowed.

Is the wood not part of the park?
Yes.. That would mean that it is not an 'inner' in the relationship and the relationship becomes a one member relationship that can be replaced by putting the tags on the outer way.
22017-08-19 07:09:44 UTCjonorossi Thanks Warin61, I spent a good 30mins reading the wiki because I wasn't sure I was doing things right but couldn't really find the info I was after, I then came across OSMI to see if it reported anything and I realised it is batch updated, so fixed some other local problems.

Sorry I don't quite f...
32017-08-19 14:47:35 UTCjonorossi I've resolved the problem. I missed the sign naming the bushland Windemere Road Bushland Refuge, so have now separated the two areas.

I'd still be interested to get a response for my previous question for next time.
42017-08-20 00:22:53 UTCWarin61 In a relation ;

An outer way cannot touch nor cross any other way in the relation.

An inner way can touch another inner way (sometimes OSMi reports this as an error .. but it is technically allowed).

That help?
If you can avoid using a relation - that makes things easier/simpler.
52017-08-20 10:28:26 UTCjonorossi Apoligies for not being clearer, I understand the inner way not touching the outer now, I saw this one reported in OSMi. I was confused earlier because you said " putting the tags on the outer way" for both, however natural=wood needs to be on the inner way.
62017-08-20 11:13:40 UTCWarin61 No need for apologies. Some, at least, is my fault! Much easier over a beer.

What I meant was if the relationship is deleted leaving simple ways, then the remaining way/s get the relevant tags from the old relationship.

If the wood is part of the park then it gets included in the park - it w...
72017-08-20 11:44:39 UTCjonorossi Cheers (with a virtual beer), I think I understand now. For example, you'd use an inner relationship if there was a residential area in the middle of a national park, since it wouldn't actually be national park. All those multiploygon nature reserves with relationships that were automatically import...
82017-08-21 13:21:15 UTCnevw There is a lot to learn about relations and after getting a good understanding of those, you will find most of the rest is much easier.
92017-08-21 14:02:23 UTCjonorossi Thanks nevw, I've seen your username on those complex multipolygons at Nerang Forest before.
102017-08-21 16:39:11 UTCnevw Yes, guilty :)
Most are from CAPAD data and I prefer to add in the form they are gazetted. The parts where they share segments with nearby areas can be difficult to sort out.
12017-08-18 07:24:01 UTCnevw Hi Jon, the OSM is not really suitable for mapping places where you saw some kangaroos. It may be suitable if they are always visible there and are in fact a bit of a local tourist attraction.
22017-08-18 07:38:05 UTCjonhildrew No problem! I trust it's been deleted now. Saw something similar for koalas that was reliable and thought it might help others... but what you said makes sense. Will bear that in mind!
12017-08-09 07:07:17 UTCnevw Hi Bromar
I expect that the building in WA that you have tagged as name=Home is where you live. This is a public map and such edits are not correct unless the building has a sign displaying it's name as "Home". Can you correct if necessary, thanks.
12017-08-09 05:28:19 UTCnevw I reverted your changeset which placed SunSeeker Studios in the middle of Griffith Park. I am unable to relocate to correct position remotely so I will leave for you to fix.
12017-07-13 05:44:15 UTCnevw Please don't try to make the map pretty by abusing the use of the highway tags.
Those roads are now incorrectly tagged as trunk. I expect they most likely should be tertiary or secondary if not residential.
22017-07-13 05:47:35 UTCnevw But apart from that, keep up the editing to improve your town :)
32017-07-13 06:43:42 UTCTravo656 The roads changed are recognised by locals as 'trunk' roads or major roads, roads that have high volumes of traffic on them. Wasn't trying to make the map 'pretty' just more accurate. So I'm sorry if that is what it came across as. We don't really use the terms 'secondary or tertiary' in regards to ...
42017-07-13 06:57:41 UTCnevw Hi Travo656
When mapping we normally use the info on the wiki as a guide e.g. but there are also country specific guidance for many tags for our country, including the roads and this is quite useful.
52017-08-05 18:05:54 UTCfreayd Hi Travo656. Sorry mate but I reverted the ways you changed to highway=trunk. As nevw mentioned, the rules for choosing a highway value are described on the wiki under Australian Tagging Guidelines. In Proserpine, only the A1 is a trunk. Apart from that, keep up the good work! Cheers.
12017-07-12 12:46:56 UTCCloCkWeRX This is actually Beech Avenue according to (that is powered by the same data as is on; which we have explicit permission to use)
22017-07-12 13:05:12 UTCnevw Well spotted.
12017-07-11 06:51:13 UTCnevw The OpenStreetMap is not suitable for adding personal details like "Home in AEU"
22017-07-12 09:00:53 UTCCloCkWeRX I've removed this for now as it seems very unlikely to be an actual confectionery store
32017-07-12 09:36:18 UTCnevw Thanks
Ok DaRa uses that pretty icon for most edits :/
12017-07-12 08:39:04 UTCnevw I fixed the tags and shifted the supermarket to correct location. Please zoom in further to the actual location before uploading edits.
12017-07-11 08:17:16 UTCQwertii Edit got sent twice. Anyone know how I can revert this?
22017-07-11 08:53:33 UTCnevw I can use the revert in Josm to revert Changeset: 50194841 if you wish and then you can check if all is well later.
32017-07-11 09:34:53 UTCnevw Have reverted this Changeset: 50194841
All seems ok now. You may want to check too.
12017-07-11 06:35:47 UTCnevw Hi
is this supermarket named "Sister work place".
If not can you edit it to the correct name of the supermarket.
22017-07-11 06:51:52 UTCnevw The OpenStreetMap is not suitable for adding personal details like "Sister work place"
12017-07-11 06:49:02 UTCnevw The OpenStreetMap is not suitable for adding personal details like "My House"

12017-07-11 06:46:05 UTCnevw The OpenStreetMap is not suitable for adding personal details like "Uncle's House"
12017-07-11 06:44:43 UTCnevw The OpenStreetMap is no suitable for listing personal details like "Daddy's Home"
12017-07-11 01:17:11 UTCnevw I reverted your changeset which unintentionally moved streets, etc.
I then added back to the map The Online Jewellery Company (OJCo).
Can you you check it is all ok now.
12017-07-10 11:34:05 UTCnevw World heritage area boundaries and national park boundaries are gazetted seperately and although often similar in most sections are normally left mapped as seperate entities.
22017-07-10 12:25:47 UTCMartini097 Dont worry, it was only northern sections where the polygons mirrored each other exactly
12017-07-09 11:45:06 UTCnevw I relocated your edit to the correct building and added amenity=dentist.
Please only add items to their exact location.
12017-07-02 07:55:53 UTCnevw The node you have mapped is not located on Commerce Lane as stated in the address and there is no business called Engage Online in the Lane. There is no place on the OSM for business that do not have a physical location.
22017-07-08 00:09:45 UTCaharvey I don't think it's a coincidence that their PO box number matches the number used for the Street Address "Postal Address: Po Box 52, Glenbrook, NSW 2773" especially given there is no 52 Commerce Lane. Looks like SEO spam. So +1 to remove.
32017-07-09 11:28:26 UTCnevw Deleted this edit as no evidence of this actually existing on the ground, appears to have only online presence and no response from mapper.
12017-07-02 07:45:05 UTCnevw Dermedica does not occupy the area you have outlined. It instead occupied a small unit in the building.
22017-07-02 07:47:55 UTCnevw The Dermedica office in located on West Coast Highway, not on Brighton Street.

12017-07-02 07:13:49 UTCnevw Hi
I think you have put the dental practice on the wrong part of the street. It seems more likely to me to be across from Baynes St, unless you have recently moved.
22017-07-09 11:06:15 UTCnevw I relocated your edit to the correct building.
Please only add items to their exact location.
12017-07-02 07:57:18 UTCnevw You have located the node for this business in a carpark. Can you locate it correctly in only the location where it exists.

Please only add items to their exact location.
12017-07-03 06:02:54 UTCnevw Hi
you have misspelled as 'Servied' but I expect this is not the actual name of the park if it even has a name. See access tag comment on other changeset.
12017-07-03 05:56:53 UTCnevw Welcome to the Openstreetmap.
Please don't use the name=* tag as a description. It is only for the actual name of the park if it has one.
22017-07-03 05:59:47 UTCnevw If the park is not open to the public and you you wish tag as such, use the access=* keys instead, such as access=no or access=private.
12017-06-19 13:33:35 UTCnevw The tower does show on the Humanitarian Layer so perhaps it does not render on the Standard Layer.
I haven't seen it but was wondering if man_made=mast was more appropriate for wifi thing.
12017-06-07 14:03:44 UTCnevw Please don't delete things that exist from the osm. This cemetary likely has a strong local significance. Whether is dominates the map appearance or not is irrelevent and is simply a rendering issue.
22017-06-08 01:39:43 UTCnevw I decided to add a bit more detail to the Blinman area based on satellite imagery.
12017-06-05 09:24:55 UTCnevw These is no reason to delete these private roads which someone else has mapped. The information provided may serve the company staff and visitors quite well. You should instead add the tag access=no or access=private.
22017-06-05 10:33:46 UTCtoxicantidote Noted. The location of these roads was incorrect anyway following a 2015 redevelopment.

I'll try and update these more appropriately.
32017-06-05 12:01:10 UTCCloCkWeRX Have tweaked this a little further, based on DigitalGlobe imagery
12017-05-30 04:05:00 UTCnevw Welcome to the Openstreetmap.
Your business listings needs a physical address to be on the OSM. Can you provide the address details and shift the nodes from the road to the correct location. I don't think there is a place for businesses operating behind a PO Box or web address on the OSM.
22017-06-03 08:16:08 UTCnevw no reply, no physical address found, reverted.
32017-06-03 08:35:26 UTCnevw I would think Google maps is the ideal site to list your online businesses and would also offer more suitable exposure than the Openstreetmap.

welcome to the osm. Could you check boundary of this park as it appears on satellite imagery to include the private yards of a few of the neighbours.
12017-05-11 21:22:20 UTCTheSwavu I've reverted this and the original changeset.

They had doodled onto the map some sort of random walk around the middle of Canberra.

The ACT Honour Walk was already mapped.
22017-05-12 02:17:15 UTCnevw Thanks
12017-05-02 03:04:21 UTCnevw I added the tag man_made=pier to the Dockside Walk piers

I noticed that the park is named "Dunstan Drive Park" but the street is named Dunstan Court.
Are the names correct?
22017-05-01 06:25:18 UTCnevw Renamed Dunstan Court to Dunstan Drive after survey.
12017-04-26 02:04:25 UTCnevw I think it would be more suitable to add foot=yes to the cycleways instead and likely to be used by more map and routing software than highway_1=footway
12017-04-25 02:44:17 UTCkimo Description should be "update bike path surface". Can change descriptions be updated one submitted?
22017-04-25 12:05:36 UTCnevw I don't believe so.
12017-04-24 10:26:30 UTCnevw Yes,
Lathlain Place should be mapped as two one-way streets as they are separated by the central area. You could also outline the centre section and map as landuse=garden and map the footways on the garden area/pedestrian area and connect them to the road and to the footways on the adjacent land ar...

12017-03-30 11:46:12 UTCnevw Landuse=forest is generally used for treed areas that are used for forestry operations.
A better way to tag this would be to use natural=wood or landcover=trees
12017-03-29 10:44:33 UTCnevw I think you have named this incorrectly as Brogla Crescent. I expect it should be Brolga Crescent.

32017-03-01 07:00:33 UTCnevw Yes, after having a much better look at it, I agree with you and think it is too little used and a minor a minor shortcut that is not required on the map, especially in such as small area with main trails next to it. I feel you were right to delete it.

12017-02-07 11:30:49 UTCnevw I think you may have broken the Heathcote-Graytown National Park multipolygon with this edit. You appear to have tried to shift or delete a part of the boundary of the park to line up with a road or something.
The park boundary came from

I think you may have done an edit here too.
I not sure if it is correct, but will be ok for now.
12017-02-06 23:28:08 UTCaharvey I can't see this footway on the imagery you've used.

Could you comment back here to let us know your source?
22017-02-07 00:55:30 UTCnevw I deleted it. Missed this one when cleaning up the area previously.
12017-02-06 23:18:06 UTCnevw Hi
Are you able to move the cafe node you have added, from near the roadway, to over the building that the cafe is located in? Or is it a portable cafe on wheels and is properly located on the footway?
12017-02-06 04:58:28 UTCnevw Hi
I notice PGS as a source around the canals.
What does the abbreviation PGS represent?
22017-02-06 05:15:54 UTCTheOldMiner The term PGS also known as prototype global shoreline. Read about it here:

Mostly obsolete now. Preference is to use Bing aerial photography to plot correctly. Hope this helps.

12017-02-04 10:54:54 UTCnevw Not sure, but I found this tag on the wiki for bridges, which seems to serve a similar purpose-

12017-02-04 04:41:27 UTCnevw This is a public map. I deleted your friends house information and mapped the houses in the close vicinity. You are welcome to add other info to those but not personal stuff thanks.
12017-02-03 22:00:05 UTCnevw Hi
you have placed this on a roadway. Are you able to move it over the correct building footprint it belongs to?
12017-02-02 07:39:04 UTCnevw Hi Chace Hua
Welcome to the Openstreetmap.
I can see by your editing that you are unaware that you are editing a public map.
Do you wish to fix the edits yourself or do you wish me to revert your changesets?
22017-02-03 12:15:54 UTCnevw fixed these edits.
12017-02-01 05:31:26 UTCnevw This edit is incorrect. You have changed place=locality to natural=water for Port Douglas. Do you want me to correct it or are you able to fix it?
22017-02-01 05:36:35 UTCnevw Oops, wrong changeset....
32017-02-01 05:43:30 UTCnevw This one was the landuse=forest which I think may be better suited to natural=wood as the forest tag is for forestry managed treed areas.
42017-02-03 11:53:47 UTCnevw fixed
12017-01-31 12:33:54 UTCnevw These edits are incorrect.
You have changed a roadway to a footway and a house to a footway.
The landuse=forest is meant to be used only for managed forestry areas. The previous mapper had this area as natural=wood and this is the correct tag I believe.
You must only make real and correct edits t...
22017-02-03 11:51:25 UTCnevw residential house mapped and two areas that were mapped as forestry changed to natural=wood. Roadway already fixed by Ballisticv.
12017-01-31 12:25:50 UTCnevw The person who previously mapped this had the tag landuse=residential, which seems correct to me.
You have deleted that and added

I don't see any footway.

Do you realise this is a public map.
I think you need to put the tags back to the correct one...
22017-02-03 11:40:22 UTCnevw boundary of area changed back to landuse=residential
12017-01-31 05:00:42 UTCnevw The leisure=park that you have mapped here appears to be a private residence with a fence and does not appear to be open to the public. We only map leisure=park if they are open to the general public to use.
Has the lot been redeveloped into a park for the general public?

12017-02-03 07:52:56 UTCnevw Welcome to the Openstreetmap.
I wish to help with this edit.
Do you mean that house numbers 3 to 5 occupy this section of Clarke Street.
If so, the correct name for the street is 'Clarke Street'. The street itself is not meant to hold the house numbers, so was correctly tagged before your edit.
12017-02-02 23:33:33 UTCnevw Hi Sensocool

12017-02-02 12:00:51 UTCnevw Hi Hakim
Welcome to the Openstreetmap.
You have added a travel agency to the middle of a main road, a guest house to another road and another guest house to a car park.
Can you edit these sites again and place them on the building they belong to or would you prefer that I revert your edits.
12017-02-02 11:42:36 UTCnevw Hi CharlieOneHorse
please don't feel the need to put a name one every edit.
Only name items if there is a sign with that name on it.
12017-02-02 01:01:05 UTCnevw Welcome to OSM.
I shifted these 2 sites off the roadway and footpaths onto the nearest building as seen on the satellite imagery. Probably helps to zoom in closer in your app to locate points of interest to map if able.
Keep up the mapping,
12017-02-01 05:37:52 UTCnevw This edit is incorrect. You have changed place=locality to natural=water for Port Douglas. Do you want me to correct it or are you able to fix it?

12017-02-01 05:12:52 UTCnevw I notice you have deleted TentWorld and The Mower Superstore on the corner of Leitchs Road and South Pine Road.
Have the closed down and moved?
Or has this been done in error?
22017-02-01 05:20:38 UTCnevw Just noticed that TentWorld and The Mower Superstore werer mapped on wrong corner.
Should have been on Kremzow and Leitchs Road.
Sorry, my mistake.
Keep up the good work :)
12017-01-31 04:47:27 UTCnevw I added traffic_calming=hump on Wellington Street just before Heddle Parade.
I added it just to the north of the junction. Hope this is correct side of intersection. I notice a node there with no tag, so thought that might be the correct spot.
22017-01-31 04:50:11 UTCBootROM Perfect, thank you. Am still new to this but hopefully I can help to fill in gaps for the new estates too.
12017-01-30 00:27:42 UTCnevw Hi
I made a small adjustment to the path you edited. I deleted the section that ran on top of Symonds Street - just linking to the street by a node is sufficient, unless there is a path or footway off to the side of the road, in which case it would be next to the road instead of overlaying it.
12017-01-29 08:03:24 UTCnevw Hi Woodenheaded
I noticed you mapped an area as landuse=forest. This tag is generally reserved for wooded areas that are managed for harvesting of forestry timber.
Do you think natural=wood would be a better tag to use.

12017-01-29 00:45:34 UTCnevw Hi Belthazer
I think you accidentally dragged a playground node from Camelleri Road Park to the end of Sunrise Place.
22017-01-29 05:05:14 UTCBelthazer I'm so sorry, I'm new to this and must have done that by accident. Has it been fixed?
32017-01-29 05:10:05 UTCBelthazer I went to the point and fixed it
42017-01-29 05:28:37 UTCnevw Thanks.
12017-01-28 06:33:47 UTCnevw Please don't make up names for paths. They only get named if there is a sign or similar with that name.
22017-01-28 23:25:54 UTCJodie Cameron Sorry, this is my first time using the Map,
32017-01-29 00:10:59 UTCnevw I also spent a bit of time making up a really good name for things I mapped at the beginning. :)
12017-01-28 07:35:06 UTCnevw All the pathways and boundary were already mapped here. You are not to map another layer of footways over the top of it if the map already has all the ways.
This is a public map.
22017-01-28 08:14:18 UTCrickybaker Why are the listed as unmaintained track road rather than pedestrian foot paths/trails?
32017-01-28 08:35:04 UTCnevw I am not there to view in person but I think track is wrong looking at satellite imagery. A track is something that a 4-wheeled vehicle may use like a fire trail for example that makes 2 track marks.
If they are tracks then that is how they have to be mapped and it is likely that they are not maint...

You are to map them as cycleways if they have cycleway signs. Pedestrians can freely use the cycleways too.
All the ones that are cycleways will need to be fixed. Please be more careful.
22017-01-27 10:47:27 UTCsatomigrim Thanks for messaging me. As far as I'm aware these are all walking paths with designated seating, exercise stops and playgrounds all along.

12016-12-04 04:05:47 UTCpaul1928 It's difficult to spot from the road due to the sharp drop-off, but the track is definitely there and clear to see.
22016-12-04 06:37:07 UTCnevw This section should be added back in if present in any form, even if overgrown. It appears to be a connection between ways. There are plenty of tags to add that describe path visibility.

12016-10-10 13:08:28 UTCnevw You have mapped a Post Office here with the name HOME.
Is there really a Post Office here called HOME?
Is it instead your home?
