12017-12-11 19:38:37 UTCtrigpoint Hi, adding a vague proposal such as this is a little pointless. It probably will never be built and if it is it will almost certainly be a different line. And there is always hope that the cinema will reopen, or be rebuilt on the site where it is accessible without a car.
12017-12-05 18:43:53 UTCtrigpoint Hi, is the delivery office really a Post Office? Do they sell stamps, pay out pensions?
22017-12-10 19:21:26 UTCAlexandru Lipan Hello, not properly a post office, but is under Royal Mail. Is a post office as linked to postage activity, without any tipe of auxiliar activities.
32017-12-10 19:38:03 UTCtrigpoint In the UK, The Post Office and Royal Mail are separate organisations.
From a post office I would expect it to sell stamps, pay cheques into the bank and send parcels.
A delivery office is not something that is customer facing beyond occasionally collecting something.
42017-12-10 23:51:36 UTCAlexandru Lipan I know, but services are based on Royal Mail sistem. Consdiering that other tags for that building that describes the actual function are not aviable, I selected the most logical tag following tecnical details the activity is based upon.
52017-12-15 00:24:45 UTCSK53 Either use amenity=delivery_office or amenity=postal_depot not amenity=post_office. The former is probably better, but the latter is more popular. Note in many larger places the delivery office is out of town in an industrial estate: locating them can be difficult they need to be tagged distinctly.
12017-12-10 18:58:43 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome tto OSM.
Please remember that OSM is a live database, please do not add test data.

I have reverted this edit.
12017-12-08 13:17:04 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM. Thank you for your addition however the tagging is a little misleading.
If it needs a key then it should be tagged as access=private, neding a key is not the generally regarded as permissive. You should also map the gates and connect it to Barlow Moor Road.

Cheers Phil
12017-12-06 13:35:35 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to osm. This edit has gone a bit wrong, the park is already mapped and you have created a duplicate.
12017-12-06 12:46:59 UTCtrigpoint Hi Joshua
Costcutter should be tagged as shop=convienience.

Cheers Phil
12017-12-06 12:45:11 UTCtrigpoint Hi, what is the source of this bridleway. It seems highly unlikely given the current ownership.

Cheers Phil
22017-12-06 17:36:27 UTCMoretonmill Dear Phil,
I know what you mean. What with the generous use of barbed wire, the illegal gates and the threatening signs (shooting!), they seem to be trying to discourage walkers.
However there's a planning sign for a bridle way on the gate post at O/S Grid 567277. I photographed it, but can't fi...
12017-12-05 19:09:18 UTCtrigpoint Hi, these edits seems a little wrong. Please can you explain why you are deleting things that are deleting these things?

12017-12-05 18:25:19 UTCtrigpoint Why have you done this? It is considered vandalism
12017-12-05 18:24:04 UTCtrigpoint Why have you removed the retail tag?
12017-12-05 18:23:06 UTCtrigpoint Hi, there is no doubt that Telford Town park is a park. Please do not confuse things by adding recreation ground as well
12017-12-05 17:56:18 UTCtrigpoint Fiction reverted
22017-12-05 18:54:14 UTCZombie13 Cheers just joined poor attempt at testing.
12017-12-05 12:50:43 UTCtrigpoint Hi, this edit looks a bit odd. If motor vehicles are allowed why have you changed it to a footpath. What is physically on the ground?

Cheers Phil
12017-12-04 18:18:30 UTCtrigpoint Hi
These 'heritage:operator' tags you have added seem a little odd. What is the source of this information. Did you visit these sites to confirm?

Cheers Phil
22017-12-04 18:56:09 UTCmueschel Hi Phil,
I didn't add them, this was brianboru in
I just corrected the spelling from an '_' to a ':', assuming it was just a spelling mistake and the content was correct.

12017-12-04 18:11:37 UTCtrigpoint Hi, this edit seems very odd and a little wrong.

The Cock is primarily a pub, a very good one with 10 handpulls. That is why it was mapped as amenity=pub. It a bit of a stretch to call it a hotel, it has a few rooms hence the accomodation=yes tag, which you seem to have removed. Why do you consid...
12017-12-02 14:19:03 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM.
Please do not map things that do not exist, there is no park here so I am reverting this edit.
12017-12-02 12:10:24 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM. This area is a recreation ground. Clearly visible on imagery. Please do not map what doesn't exist or destroy the rich variation of tagging in order to attract pokemon.
I have reverted this
12017-12-02 12:03:14 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM. Thank you for your edit, however no shop is just called Tesco. They are Tesco Metro/Extra/Express.
The size of this one suggests express to me, please can you confirm
12017-12-01 22:46:49 UTCpaulbiv As you were previously asked, the same applies.
Welcome to OSM.
Have you added a park that doesn't really exist to try to attract Pokémon? The 'park' seem to over the top of people's gardens, or am I wrong?
Pokémon edits need to be correct, accurate and real places to work.
22017-12-02 11:53:00 UTCtrigpoint Reverted

12017-11-29 18:11:02 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM. I spotted this edit and thought the name you have used is slightly odd for a bay. Porth means sand, so correct for the beach.

I have corrected its name should be Bae Trecastell and also put Cable Bay into the name:en tag, rather than an alternative.

Cheers Phil

12017-11-26 12:13:46 UTCtrigpoint Hi, this path is confusing me a bit. Have you actually walked it as I would imagine that it is private as it passes through the school.

Cheers Phil
12017-11-23 19:24:43 UTCtrigpoint Hello, what do you mean by route=old_bus?

Cheers Phil
12017-11-22 18:03:13 UTCtrigpoint Hi, mapping a single house as a multipolygon is a bit odd. Any special reason?
Cheers Phil
12017-11-19 11:16:19 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM. This edit has gone a little wrong. Victoria Park is already mapped so I have removed you duplication.

Please add things that are missing or make corrections but please do not duplicate existing features.
12017-11-10 11:46:19 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to Osm. Your dental surgery is already mapped on the other side of the road.

Which is correct?
12017-11-09 20:06:28 UTCtrigpoint This is an odd place for a tourist attraction, I am removing it. Let me know if there is something here that I should go and see.
Cheers Phil
12017-11-07 18:30:26 UTCtrigpoint Hi, this should be mapped as amenity=parking. Its name isn't CAR PARK.

Cheers Phil
12017-10-31 18:15:27 UTCtrigpoint Hi, just spotted an odd changeset comment an wondered why an American is editing in Cheshire.
However the edit has gone a little bit wrong, give ways should be put on the ways to which they apply and not on the common node. Traffic using the A49 does give way by The Cholmondeley Arms.

22017-11-03 23:30:11 UTCRichard Carden I'm not American and I consider that a degradation, I'm British and live locally but I don't know how to add give way/stop signs specific for our country.
32017-11-04 18:06:17 UTCtrigpoint Hi, sorry I didn't mean to insult you, I had just spotted the American term for a give way in your changeset comment.

I have corrected the give ways you added, in most cases there are two giveway signs, one on each road approaching the junction.

Cheers Phil
12017-11-04 14:01:04 UTCtrigpoint Since when has Worthen been in Wales?
22017-11-04 14:40:31 UTCNuno Salgueiro My friend moved from Welshpool to Worthen recently. For some reason, I still think he's living in Wales. :)
32017-11-04 14:58:31 UTCtrigpoint No problem. Worthen is in Shropshire, England but not far from Wales.
12017-10-25 12:04:02 UTCtrigpoint Hi is farmland from my memory and local knowledge. Why is it tagged as a park?

22017-10-25 17:31:06 UTCNorthIsland Hi trigpoint. I'm not a local to the Llangollen Canal but I've visited quite a lot, and done walks. It was sparsely mapped.

12017-10-22 17:10:43 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM. You seem to have created an object with no attributes so I am going to revert this.
Please can you add meaningful comments so we can work out what you are trying to achieve.
12017-10-20 13:05:40 UTCtrigpoint Hi Joshua, is there anything verifiable here to suggest these are taxi ranks?

Cheers Phil
22017-10-20 13:10:41 UTCjoshuaowen Hi Phil, These are all the pickups for taxis for southwater with it being pedestrianised. I work within the taxi industry so i know these are the spots areas for taxis
32017-10-20 13:11:58 UTCjoshuaowen there is also a rank by the bus station but it is closed due to road works so it is currently send over to the tgi fridays.
42017-10-20 14:05:22 UTCtrigpoint Thank you.
The tagging in OSM does seem very limited, I would assume that amenity=taxi referred to a taxi office and there would be a way to tag a taxi rank in a different way (maybe use highway=taxi_rank in the same way as a bus stop). But this is the way the wiki says.

Cheers Phil
12017-10-20 08:55:32 UTCtrigpoint It is just Wilco, it does not belong to someone called Wilco :)
22017-10-20 09:07:04 UTCjoshuaowen never thought of that haha. ive changed it now
12017-10-19 12:03:22 UTCtrigpoint Hi, I would expect the name Wilko rather than Wilkinsons these days. Probably tag it as shop=homeware although its one of those difficult ones.
Cheers Phil
12017-10-17 05:30:40 UTCBCNorwich Hello and Welcome to OpenStreetMap.

22017-10-17 09:32:40 UTCtrigpoint Size of building suggests that this is a very unlikely place for a guest house.

Probably yet more personal marker rubbish
32017-10-17 10:04:42 UTCBCNorwich Hi trigpoint, I agree,and a response would be unusual but I usually wait a few days so a response could be made before going back and removing fiction. Also the house numbers in the building don't look right.

There is no problem with improving things, or removing them if the are wrong.
Changing part of a footway to a driveway is fine, we map what is on the ground. If for example a public footpath goes along a driveway then map it as a driveway but ensure you add access tags foot=yes and design...
12017-10-09 21:40:17 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to Osm. Thank you for your edits however I have a few observations.

Secondly why did you change The House of Grain to a bar, it looks like a re...
22017-10-09 21:53:29 UTCPounamu I actually have no idea how this was created, I certainly did not mean to. How can I undo this?

I work at the House of Grain and was just updating details about the place. It is both a bar and a restaurant but primarily a bar.
32017-10-09 21:59:34 UTCtrigpoint Thank you for replying, I was looking at the menu on my way from the loggerheads last week.
Was the update in florida intended?
42017-10-09 22:07:12 UTCPounamu Yes, I did not even search, select, edit, or even look at Florida so have no idea how this happened? I also cannot for the life of me find anywhere to undo / delete edits I have made. This is way more complicated than it needs to be.
52017-10-09 22:17:24 UTCPounamu Ah okay so I've figured out what has happened. It is not Florida, it is actually a cafe in Havana, Cuba. It is an edit I made on my app on my phone whilst I was there a few months ago to help the owners but having only just registered on OpenStreetMap and signed in on the app, it has just on...

I assume you didn't mean to delete the whole of National Cycle Network Route 55 relation?
22017-10-09 18:04:18 UTCtrigpoint Thank you for spotting this Adam, I have fixed it in

Cheers Phil
32017-10-09 19:04:02 UTCMark Dev I did not intend to delete the whole of it no. JOSM was complaining about issues with the cycle route.
42017-10-09 20:11:06 UTCtrigpoint JOSM complains about lots of things, sometimes you just have to ignore it.

Cheers Phil
12017-10-09 12:10:12 UTCtrigpoint Hi, this is not a hospital in the modern sense of the word. Is there any evidence against my long term local knowledge that suggest it has now become a hospital?
12017-10-08 17:01:43 UTCtrigpoint In what way is Yew Tree House an attraction?
22017-10-09 09:21:05 UTCCathyH2808 Only In the same way as other houses on the street. They are listed (e.g. Jessamine Cottage). Why is this a problem? It helps visitors to the village know exactly where they are.
32017-10-09 09:22:21 UTCCathyH2808 If you wish to remove this listing, I will feel disappointed but won't argue about it.
42017-10-09 09:26:44 UTCtrigpoint There is no need to remove it. The name should be moved to addr:housename field and tourism=attraction should be removed as it is not somewhere tourists would visit.

82017-10-11 13:46:37 UTCSK53 Forgot to mention I'd changed it! From aerial imagery it looks as if the house is a slightly different shape from that shown.

12017-10-08 17:01:08 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM. Please do not mistag things, this is described as a clinic so it should not be mapped as a hospital as that is extremely misleading for other map users.
Please use amenity=clinic, you may need to use a proper OSM editor such as iD to change this.
22017-10-09 09:25:58 UTCCathyH2808 I didn't deliberately mislead anyone. You are right - this is a clinic NOT a hospital but "hospital" was the closest category I could choose to the medical context of the business. If you could explain how I can accurately describe/amend the details, I would be happy to oblige.
12017-10-05 12:02:37 UTCtrigpoint Hi, this was originally mapped as a recreation ground. OS Opendata call it a recreation ground, I would call it a recreation ground. Why did you change it and what is the source of the name?

32017-10-05 12:40:43 UTCtrigpoint Thank you for your reply.

Places with childrens playgrounds and grassy areas for sport are recreation grounds and are far more common. Parks are for more formal places such as Abbey Park for example.

Cheers Phil
42017-10-05 12:50:12 UTCGobster Still new to this so I really appreciate the help. I've changed it back to Recreation Ground. Thank you for your help!

12017-10-02 17:51:15 UTCtrigpoint I have removed the wikidata tags from the statue of Charles Darwin and the bust of Mary Webb.

22017-10-02 18:16:52 UTCnyuriks Thanks! I think it would be better to use "subject:wikidata" for both of them. As for the wikipedia link - its a link to part of the page - which means the wiki page is not "about the feature" - so perhaps we should use something like "related:wikipedia" ?

22017-10-02 12:14:49 UTCsmb1001 An entirely valid point and I wasn't aware that I'd added the name (though I clearly did!) as I entirely agree with you. The name is on the Roman road relation now, so I've removed them. Thanks for spotting.

Last time I was in Telford or Wellington there were certainly no Russian Names on the signs.

12017-09-23 16:06:57 UTCtrigpoint Hi, has the car park been built on?
If so then it would be better to delete it as the area was already residential and you now have a residential polygon with another residential polygon.

12017-09-19 21:00:17 UTCtrigpoint Hi, please could you explain why you made this change?
OSM has a system of free tagging which allows mappers to express what they see, and survey regularly, on the ground. The aim is not database purity.
The word candy was chosen to express what is sold there.

Looks like a good edit to me...
22017-09-09 11:09:55 UTCpwat Thanks. Not bikeworthy!
32017-09-09 12:10:14 UTCtrigpoint Not sure it was intended to be bikeworthy, its a bridleway. Good edit
42017-09-10 16:24:34 UTCpwat Cheers. Flipping GPS syndrome. Route created in "Bike" mode with "Avoid unsurfaced" selected. But unless OSM contains the full data, OsmAnd often makes the optimistic assumption. Fortunately it didn't involve a dire diversion on this occasion.
12017-09-09 08:42:25 UTCtrigpoint Hi, this edit has gone a little wrong. The wikipedia/wikidata tags you have added to Penhurst Station belong to the one in Kent.

I have removed these tags.

Cheers Phil
12017-09-07 11:58:16 UTCtrigpoint J21 is not called, or signposted Whetstone. If anything it is Leicester South, Why did you name it with such a name?

22017-09-07 08:29:26 UTCrobbieonsea No not especially, as I passed by relatively rapidly on bicycle.
Saw some old Yew trees in Powis Castle Gardens the next day though (not mapped yet either).
12017-09-06 11:54:21 UTCtrigpoint HI, rather than add disused=yes you need to change the amenity tag. The normal way we do this is to use disused:amenity=bar. I am not sure many data consumers will look at disused=yes.
Cheers Phil
12017-09-03 14:39:07 UTCtrigpoint Hi, Maddocks Social Club should be tagged as amenity=social_club. It is misleading to tag it as a pub as it is not open to the public.
Cheers Phil
22017-09-03 15:13:17 UTCjoshuaowen I have had a look and i cannot find anything actually saying social club. I can find social facility if that is better? i assumed pub would have been suitable as half of it is open as a pub its only the snooker club half that is not open
32017-09-03 15:45:08 UTCtrigpoint I have done a quick check and The Maddocks Club certainly refers to membership so it is certainly not what most would consider a pub.

You do not have to stick to the limited set of tags offered by one particular editor, you can choose your own.

For example the Social Club is used 530 times, ht...
12017-09-03 14:06:47 UTCtrigpoint Please can you explain the reason for these edits and your source?

32017-09-03 14:18:01 UTCferrocarta About station nodes, these should not be created as part of the track but should be independent nodes according to OSM guidelines (see or
42017-09-03 14:30:32 UTCtrigpoint Thank you
I would suggest that the Pwhelli line is of equal importance, it does not have a lesser service than Aberystwyth, so I agree the tag was missing but it should be main as well.
52017-09-03 14:38:00 UTCferrocarta Fine with me, I'll update the station nodes now and the usage tag by tomorrow.
12017-09-03 14:24:44 UTCtrigpoint When adding information please be aware of local language usage, there should be a name:en tag, as there was previously. What goes in the name tag is the subject of community debate, The name that is first on the sign, or what is on the sign Barmouth / Abermaw.

22017-09-03 11:44:40 UTCtrigpoint I would also like to add that last time I was on The Berwyns it was not an area I would describe as heath, it is mostly moorland.

As a local I find it quite concerning that my local area is being mismapped in this way.

The actual name is "Wild Palm" not "Wild Pamp". Can you please correct it?
12017-08-16 11:58:43 UTCtrigpoint Hi, you seem to have added a source:maxspeed with no maxspeed.
Also GB:rural is meaningless, there is no such thing as a rural limit. We have a national speed limit and tag source:maxspeed as either gb_nsl_single or gb_nsl_dual.

12017-08-11 15:48:38 UTCSK53 I dont think you meant waterway=lock_gate in this edit. Probably barrier=gate, access=no, note=locked. The adjacent access point should be tagged barrier=stile, stile=stepover, step_count=2, material=wood and ideally the footway should cross the stile not go through the gate
22017-08-11 16:24:31 UTCtrigpoint The other common barrier on the rights of way, which you may have encoutered, is a kissing gate., these are mapped as barrier=kissing_gate
HTH Phil
32017-08-11 19:20:53 UTCJan van Bekkum There are two barriers. The one on the footpath just north of the track to the bridge is a squeezer stile, the one just south of it is a stepover stile. I have amended the map accordingly. Furthermore I removed an .untagged way that was on ot of the footpath.

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.

You have changed this way from a track to unclassified and included the surface=unpaved, in the UK it is reasonable to expect an unclassified road to be surfaced, I believe that unless it has been surfaced it should have been left as a track.
What ...
42017-06-15 18:17:51 UTCandyfrizzle trigpoint,
I dont want to start an argument of any sort, but it was my understanding that contributors to the OSM project should make their contributions as accurate as possible, and that has been my intention, based on facts.
The road, edited by myself, is an unclassified road, lawfully usable b...
52017-06-16 11:51:40 UTCSK53 This does indeed appear to be classified as an unclassified road by the county council. There will always be edge cases where the rules-of-thumb fall down, and this is one of them. I don't believe that it should be mapped as such on OSM: highway=track is much more appropriate. A couple of important ...
62017-06-16 11:58:07 UTCRichard highway=unclassified, surface=unpaved is ok but slightly unidiomatic for UK mapping. There's nothing wrong with it per se - there are lots of dirt roads in the States mapped that way, for example - but it's slightly unexpected in a UK context where highway=unclassified isn't used by custom for such ...
72017-06-16 12:05:46 UTCSK53 Just thought I'd add links to the similar highways which I mentioned earlier:

Tillington, West Sussex:

Two in Marefield, Leics:

Red Lodge Road:
Blackspinney Lane:
82017-06-16 14:03:04 UTCandyfrizzle Thanks for the further input, I have no problems making the amendments as suggested prior. Northumberland has a vast network of unsurfaced unclassified roads with vastly varying roads surfaces. I would not be surprised is there are more than a hundred in this county alone. I will try and work throug...
92017-06-16 14:22:24 UTCSK53 Thanks Andy. I've added this to the wiki It's largely based on the discussion here, but I should also add some examples from Northumberland too. I think pressure of use in SE England, Peak District etc has l...
12017-06-12 15:19:05 UTCtrigpoint Hi, this edit appears to have quite a bit of serious mistagging that could inconvienience other map users.
Travis Perkins is a builders merchant, not an outdoor shop.
Western Power Distribution is not an electronics shop, probably tag it as office=company, its not somewhere the public will normall...
22017-06-12 16:04:17 UTCRuss McD Noted.. I was using that piece of shit that offers only a limited range of tags. Nothing for builders merchant, and OK the Garden centre does have the word Ramsey in from of it ... I'll add it. I get round to amending these edits once back home on the PC, which I will do today. As a commun...
32017-06-12 16:43:19 UTCtrigpoint Thanks Russ
12017-06-07 20:15:57 UTCtrigpoint Hi, this gate looks a little wrong as it has 3 ways connecting to it. It needs to be separate from the junction otherwise it is impossible to tell which routes pass through the gate,
Cheers Phil
22017-06-07 20:17:26 UTCmueschel Hi,
that's not my work, it was added by

Cheers, Jan
32017-06-07 20:46:10 UTCtrigpoint Hi Jan
Sorry, I will see if I can work it out.

Cheers Phil
12017-06-06 19:20:25 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM. Thank you for your contribution but please could you keep changes to sensible areas as it makes it very difficult for otheer mapper to review changes.
Cheers Phil
12017-06-03 17:57:35 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM. This changeset has gone a little wrong. You have made a classic beginner error of using the name field as a description. The name should only be use when an object has a name, I don't think this is called 'Detatched houses'.
Also for mapbox imagery I can see that this should be ...
12017-06-03 17:45:01 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM. You seem to have changed several recreation grounds to parks, objects should be mapped as what they are and these are different things.
12017-06-03 17:07:17 UTCtrigpoint Is there really a bar. in the middle of the road and in what is clearly a residential area.
I somehow doubt it, reverted.
12017-06-01 16:42:24 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM. Thank you for your additions, they look good.
A couple of small things that would be helpful:
If you could tag rights of way with a designation tag i.e. designation=public_bridleway, public_footpath.
Rather thatn the description it would be better if you could add a short sect...
22017-06-01 17:50:00 UTCcoalporter Thanks for your input; I've made some further changes to address these issues.

One question: can the designation replace the individual access tags? I seem to remember that not all renderers will honour the designations, so for the moment I've just added it as an extra tag (although it obviously...
32017-06-01 19:46:55 UTCcoalporter Of course, that should have read "elephant trap".
12017-05-25 11:59:12 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM. Something has gone a little wrong here. You have added the name funeral home to a banks atm. As far as I can see there was no duplicate bank.
Also could you correct the name of the co-op to what is signed, usually Co-Operative Food,
12017-05-22 16:25:29 UTCtrigpoint Again are you sure this isn't Lloyds Pharmacy?
22017-05-23 19:11:04 UTCSteve Cazwell Yes changed to Lloyds Pharmacy.
Not Pharmacist as I mistakenly typed originally. 😊
12017-05-21 15:54:35 UTCtrigpoint Hi, the name suggests that this should be tagged as leisure=fitness_centre, a shop=sport is a place selling sports equipment.
22017-05-21 17:40:15 UTCJethro10 It's a shop. Sells primarily running gear. It's not a gym or similar
32017-05-21 17:59:03 UTCtrigpoint Thank you, the name implies a gym type place. Was just checking .
12017-05-21 15:50:22 UTCtrigpoint Hi, are you sure this isn't Lloyds Pharmacy?
12017-05-21 13:58:31 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM. Thank you for your edit, however you have made a few classic beginners mistakes.
The school is already mapped, you have therefore created a duplicate.
The name tag should only be used for things that have an actual name, hence bus stop, church, postbox are descriptions that sh...
12017-05-20 15:21:03 UTCkreuzschnabel These were the last landuse=farm on the British Isles, so please don’t add new ones :-) And just in time we were, the new carto revision (which will not render landuse=farm any more) seems to have been switched active a few hours later.
22017-05-20 15:53:18 UTCtrigpoint It was never a pressing issue, farm/farmland is of dubious values consiting of vast areas armchaired by crayonists. It.adds very little value to those of us using OSM in rural areas.
Many areas close to me were poorly drawn with connections to roads/rivers (not riverbank) and I had left them until ...
32017-05-20 16:08:22 UTCkreuzschnabel I agree that landuse=farmland is of pretty little use (moreover, it’s not clearly defined from landuse=meadow, so there are areas already where these two collide). landuse=farmyard, on the other hand, is of higher value for the walker or bicyclist, and I wouldn’t really like to miss them...
42017-05-20 16:35:26 UTCtrigpoint I would agree farmyard is far more important than farmland itself. It is afterall the default state of non urban areas. It is a big shame that meadow has been so badly misused, it should be a rare but useful tag. simply pasture.
If we are going to map farmland we should be doing it at a muc...
52017-05-22 19:28:01 UTCSomeoneElse Hi kreuzschnabel,
This looks very much like a mechanical edit. Have you ever actually visited e.g. to see if it deserves any sort of "place" tag?
Best Regards,
Andy Townsend, on behalf of OSM's Data Working Group.
12017-05-20 10:25:32 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM. In OSM we map what exists in the real world, we do not map things as something it is not.
I have reverted this edit.
22017-05-20 12:10:36 UTCTim Hill Hi trigpoint,
I don't understand your comment.
I can assure you it's a park area. I walk through it frequently. If it's the description/designation you disagree with e.g. open space then fair enough, but I don't understand why you have reverted the change. Could you explain further.

Thank you,\...
32017-05-20 12:16:31 UTCTim Hill Ah ok, I have seen a comment left on the note about this. I honestly don't know what the difference is between field / park in OSM. I'll check what the correct designation should be in the wiki and perhaps come back to you.
It has benches, paths and the grass is maintained short, but i'll check.\...
12017-05-20 09:01:51 UTCtrigpoint Hi, thank you for this addition. You should add religion and denomination tags here. is a bit basic, so probably wont allow you to do this, you should use a proper OSM editor such as iD from the OSM site.
12017-05-18 12:39:41 UTCtrigpoint Hi, I think something has gone wrong with this series of edits. This is a pub beer garden, not a German style biergarten.
According to the wiki

To be clear, a biergarten is not the same as (what is known in the UK as) a "beer garde...
22017-05-18 19:07:00 UTCAleks-Berlin Hi Phil, it seems that this is a private tag by single users. on this planet are only 25 beer_garden, see
Also the OSM wiki tells both should be tagged as "biergarten" or pub (not beer_garden", see https://wiki.openstreetmap....
32017-05-18 19:18:58 UTCAleks-Berlin After found a solution that is alligned with OSM wiki, I will change this. Please make a proposal. Thx, Alex
42017-05-19 16:27:18 UTCtrigpoint Hi Alex
There is no such thing as a private tag, OSM allows a user to add any tag they wish. Those with a small number are unlikely to be rendered but a mapper is free to use any tags, this one is pretty well accepted in the area where it is used and describes a beer garden. Maybe the tagging can b...
52017-05-20 19:09:17 UTCAleks-Berlin Hi trigpoint,
I changed it back. I searched for
bbox=over Bristisch Isles, no node or rela found.
You can verify here.
Many regards, Alex
62017-05-20 21:16:05 UTCgeow Hi trigpoint, as a frequent visitor of
"biergarten sensu stricto" aka Bavarian Biergarten I'm just curious - what are the characteristic features of a pub beer garden?
72017-05-21 07:43:45 UTCAleks-Berlin He said: read
But it is a philosophical question if the garden beside a pub (in UK beer_garden) is something else a german biergarten (which has typically a pub beside). The one is the garden of a pub, the other the garden with an attached ...
82017-05-21 09:18:47 UTCgeow The wiki in this case is fairly clear. But some people, even in Bavaria ;) are not aware of the strict definition:
Necessary characteristic of a "biergarten" is that you are allowed to bring your own food.

That is why many so-tagged amenity=biergarten" even in Germany qualify only...
12017-05-19 12:32:33 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM. Please remember that OSM is a public database and the name:xx tag should only be used for things that actually exist. It should not be used for personal markers or to record how much you paid for lunch.
I am reverting this changeset.
12017-05-17 17:32:16 UTCtrigpoint Hi, this is a big change and covers a large area. Please could you use meaningful changeset comments that tell other mappers what you were doing. Did you actually look at every one of the 11 pages of ways you have changed.
I am sure that if as you say you were fixing josm, you would not have touch...
22017-05-18 10:32:27 UTCninjamask I meant, that I used the validator in JOSM to fix issues like double nodes and other auto-fixable issues. After that i fixed some issues of ways with double segments.
32017-05-20 23:07:02 UTCSomeoneElse Please don't use rely on the validator in JOSM without manually checking every change. The JOSM validator will get some things right, but it will get some edge cases wrong as well.
12017-05-16 13:27:22 UTCBCNorwich Hello and Welcome to OpenStreetMap.
Your POI guest house is placed in the roadway. As such and without an address, name or other contact info it is of little or no use to anyone. Could you please rectify this if not the POI will be removed in due course.
Regards Bernard
22017-05-17 17:11:58 UTCtrigpoint It translates as Oli's House, suggesting that this is yet another personal marker.
I am reverting this rubbish
12017-05-13 19:58:56 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM. We do not map geocaches, it kind of defeats the object.
I have reverted this.
12017-05-10 22:41:52 UTCtrigpoint This is a garden, it is not a park
12017-05-10 22:28:43 UTCtrigpoint Hi, the railway stations should be tagged as Borth, not Borth Station. You have also changed it to a station. Borth is a request stop, hence it was already correctly tagged as a halt.
12017-05-10 22:19:07 UTCtrigpoint Hi, you seem to have removed the railway=rail tags from the Cambrian Line. I am fixing this.
12017-05-10 21:37:37 UTCtrigpoint Hi, does this church really have a postcode?
Any postcode is likely to be the vicarage, I doubt post is delivered to the church.

12017-05-10 20:34:51 UTCtrigpoint This is not a park, reverted

As for language you should not put Welsh and English into the name tag. here I would use Welsh as the primary and use...
12017-05-10 17:01:53 UTCtrigpoint Hi, please could you explain why you have removed the name from this school?
Thanks Phil
22017-05-10 18:48:32 UTCadventure1 Duplicated data cluttering map. There is a school pinpoint within the school grounds. This entry is the school grounds one.
Many thanks for querying :)
32017-05-10 19:15:45 UTCtrigpoint Hi, the correct place to tag a school is on the grounds. Nodes are seen as a poor way to tag large areas. There was a successful project
There was no additional node however, there was a bus stop, which you have added school tags to. I believe that both these changes should be reverted.

12017-05-10 17:09:38 UTCtrigpoint Hi, please could you explain your reasons for deleting this churchyard?
22017-05-10 21:46:02 UTCRichRico Hi trigpoint, I made a mistake deleting the churchyard, but I reversed the change.
thanks for your observation
12017-05-07 15:16:48 UTCtrigpoint Hi, please can you make your changeset comments meaningful. Describe what you are actually trying to achieve. This and many of your other changes are huge and covers a very large area.
Thanks Phil
12017-05-07 14:59:05 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM. There is no supermarket here. I have therefore removed it.
22017-05-08 10:17:08 UTCChris Fleming Thanks trigpoint - think this was probably a "duplicate" of the store next to the Last Drop.
12017-05-06 18:22:32 UTCtrigpoint Hi, this should probably office=company, it certainly isn't a clinic
12017-05-06 18:10:48 UTCtrigpoint Hi, please remember that that name tag should only be used for actual names, not descriptions. I an object doesn't have a name then the tag should be left blank.
12017-05-06 18:10:31 UTCtrigpoint Hi, please remember that that name tag should only be used for actual names, not descriptions. I an object doesn't have a name then the tag should be left blank.
12017-05-06 15:12:00 UTCtrigpoint Hi, this edit looks a little odd. Firstly is it a hotel or is it a holiday cottage? Also a name is meant to be a name and the tag should not be used for a description.
What is the source of this edit? I am assuming you have not been there as it is not near a building. Is it verifiable? Does it have...
12017-05-02 19:07:04 UTCtrigpoint Hi, what is your reason and source for this change? Have you been there?
The section you have tagged as a bridge is very definitely a causeway, and it is called simply Swarkestone Causeway.
I will see what other local mappers view is, but mine is that this should be reverted.
Cheers Phil
22017-05-03 11:07:01 UTCMike Baggaley I agree, although not local, I have been over it. My understanding is that there are sections that are bridges and sections that are causeway and that it is in total known as Swarkestone Bridge and Swarkstone Causeway - see It certa...
32017-05-03 16:47:06 UTCtrigpoint I received a reply to this as a private message, for changeset discussions it is better to keep these discussion public where they can be seen by all mappers.

The whole is known as Swarkestone Bridge by most people, but most don't consider the detail in the way that a mapper does. The actual brid...
42017-05-06 14:39:07 UTCtrigpoint No response so am reverting it based on my local knowledge gathered over many years
12017-05-06 14:37:14 UTCtrigpoint Hi Bernard
Not sure if you looked through the history of this object but it was changed to a park, from a village green, by Doily17. I suspect this is pokemon related and should probably to put back?

12017-05-04 13:48:20 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM, these are very odd places to buy fuel. What were you trying to achieve?
22017-05-04 21:00:07 UTCtrigpoint Fiction reverted
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.
12017-04-29 11:32:09 UTCtrigpoint I am reverting these edits, they are very definitely recreation grounds
12017-04-28 19:59:48 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM. The Guards Museum is already mapped. I am removing this duplication
12017-04-28 13:22:12 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM.
I am always a bit concerned when a new mappers first edit is to just delete things.
You have not explained what was wrong with the Health Centre but the building seems to match what is on bing imagery so maybe the tags should be changed but deleting the building is not the way ...
22017-04-28 13:27:21 UTCdeathterrapin The real health center is further down the road, and is marked correctly there. That building used to be the Rose Inn but is now just a house.
The former Crossfield Tavern is also now just a house.
32017-04-28 13:28:52 UTCtrigpoint Thank you for your relply, I will revert this change to put the buildings back and then correct the tagging.
42017-04-28 13:30:07 UTCdeathterrapin Ah, I see, didn't realise I was deleting the whole buidling, sorry!
52017-04-28 13:31:51 UTCtrigpoint I have put the buildings back, less pub and health centre tags
12017-04-28 13:23:35 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM. Is this a verifable office with signs I would see if I walked down Adelphi Road?
22017-04-28 15:20:13 UTCStephen Dench This Business is registered to this address on pretty much every aggregator and directory online, including GMaps, Apple Maps, Bing maps etc.. And yes if you look outside of the front of the house you will see my sign "Web App Designer"
12017-04-24 19:24:40 UTCtrigpoint Hi, SOFA should be mapped as shop=charity, charity=furniture. You will need to use a proper editor such as iD to change it though. Give me a shout if you need a hand.
22017-04-25 06:53:02 UTCgerv Yep. Thanks for the tip. The software I was using is very convenient, but only has a limited number of presets. My plan was to come back and fix them in a few days. I'm fine with using iD. Thank you for the reminder :-)
12017-04-24 19:19:45 UTCtrigpoint Stirling Castle is already mapped in great detail, a node doesn't add anything so I am reverting this edit.
12017-04-24 11:45:59 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM. I am not sure a community centre is really the way to describe a yacht club. Plus it is already mapped as.a marina.
22017-04-24 21:48:55 UTCDusty52 Thanks for this -If I could have found a "Marina" descriptor I would have used that!
32017-04-24 21:59:32 UTCDusty52 Can't find how to correct this misleading information. Can someone advise?
12017-04-22 16:59:58 UTCtrigpoint Hi, thank you for adding the car park however you have made a common beginners mistake by putting a description in the name field. If the car park doesn't have a name, then leave the name field blank.
Cheers Phil
22017-04-23 11:20:41 UTCGenoma Thanks will change it :)
12017-04-21 15:01:31 UTCSomeoneElse Can you explain what you mean by "invalid layer tag"?
Layer tags are relative, so "layer=-1" or "layer=-100" isn't any more valid or invalid than "layer=0" or an implied layer=0, if all crossing features have positive layer tags.
What problem are you trying ...
22017-04-22 07:45:23 UTCwongataa I should have put some more detail in. These layer tags were not used in conjunction with any other tags such as bridge or tunnel. The features in question could also be clearly seen at surface level on the satellite imagery and were tagged as layer -1. The layer tags were applied in error as the...
32017-04-22 08:43:38 UTCSomeoneElse Again, to be clear, _layer tags are relative_. Layer 0 does _not_ imply ground level.
Again, what _actual problem_ are you trying to solve?
42017-04-22 16:30:10 UTCtrigpoint There are more changes here than your stated incorrect layer.
You have also changed oneway=-1 to oneway=yes on way 204098940 thus reversing the direction of travel for that section
12017-04-21 14:32:59 UTCtrigpoint Hi, please can you point me to where this mechanical edit was discussed?
You seem to have mechanically armchaired layer=1 onto bridges with no survey, if you had you would have seen that the bridge should be at layer=0 and maybe whatever is below them needs a later=-1 where it is below ground level...
22017-04-22 07:51:54 UTCwongataa All bridges need a layer tag of 1 or higher. This is detailed in the OSM wiki on the bridge page. It doesn't matter if the bridge is a simple plank or not. It is above ground level.

In that mapillary link the bridge needs a layer tag as it crosses a river/canal. The layer is to show where a f...
32017-04-22 08:38:35 UTCSomeoneElse Firstly - please take the wiki with a bucketload of salt :)
Secondly - layer=0 doesn't imply ground level - layer tags are relative, so "All bridges need a layer tag of 1 or higher" is simply wrong.
Also, although it is possible to infer relative level from imagery and other sources, i...

12017-04-18 16:21:09 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM. We do not map Airbnbs as they are not verifiable.
I have reverted this edit.
12017-04-17 14:30:03 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM. Thank yo for your contribution however it is looking a bit odd.
I assume that the Blockbuster shop has become a solicitors but is still tagged as shop=video. is a bit basic and doesn't allow even simple things like changing the category, in order to do this you will nee...
12017-04-17 10:12:47 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM. Redwell Leisure Centre is already mapped, it is not a park so I am reverting this pointless addition
12017-04-16 15:37:00 UTCchillly Welcome to OSM
Fairfield Recreation Ground is not a park it is a recreation ground - the clue is in the name. I have removed the extra park you added and altered the existing rec's name

12017-04-15 17:54:22 UTCtrigpoint Hi, you seem to have made a lot of these edits. What is the source of the opening hours you are adding? They are very spread out so I doubt you have visited them all.
22017-04-16 12:00:50 UTCehm1806 Hi, The source is the official supermarket websites as well as local knowledge. I do travel around! I see there is a place to put source in. I will do that. Thanks for the reminder
32017-04-16 12:20:55 UTCtrigpoint Thank you, however have you obtained explicit permission to copy from these websites?
12017-04-16 08:30:53 UTCtrigpoint Hi, this edit looks very odd. Bare rock is kind of unusual in Leicester. I think the original paved is a better description.
22017-04-16 08:46:00 UTCtrigpoint Fiction reverted

12017-04-16 08:44:42 UTCtrigpoint You are wrong here, the node is the Bede Island area of Leicester. The park is already mapped as an area.

12017-04-15 14:32:56 UTCMike Baggaley Hi Martin, please do not add names that are descriptive, e.g. Playground - we already know it is a playground from its tag.

22017-04-15 14:54:44 UTCMartin Wynne Hi Mike,
But map users don't know it's a Playground unless I give it a name. I know there are some tiny little squiggly icons, but they are too small for someone of my age to see properly or understand what they mean. Also they vanish at some zoom levels. Most things have a name used by local resid...
32017-04-15 15:04:03 UTCMike Baggaley You should not add incorrect data just so because something is not visible at a different zoom level. If the icons are too small for you to see, then please set the zoom level on your browser to display larger (I don't mean zoom in on the map). In addition to an icon, playgrounds are clearly display...
42017-04-15 15:19:49 UTCtrigpoint Hi Martin, also remember that OSM is a geographical database. The map you see on the OSM site is just one, of many renders that are available and anyone is free to create their own if what they require something different.
52017-04-15 15:26:03 UTCMartin Wynne Hi Mike,
But how do map users know what the colours mean? I clicked on the Map Key and a Playground isn't listed.
When I zoom the browser some icons vanish. Also the map gets very fuzzy. I can't seem to attach a screenshot here, so here's a link:
62017-04-15 15:29:16 UTCtrigpoint Icons are displayed at different zoom levels, I cannot tell what zoom level that image was, but the playground icon (in mapnik) displays starting at z17.
72017-04-15 15:40:56 UTCMartin Wynne Hi, I was zooming the browser (Firefox) as suggested by Mike, not zooming levels in OSM. At some browser zoom settings the icons vanish, and reappear at both higher and lower settings (which doesn't make sense to me).
82017-04-15 15:44:35 UTCtrigpoint Use the + - zoom buttons, or simply the scroll wheel if you have a mouse.

But do remember that OSM is a database and mapping should not be dictated by a single renderer.
92017-04-15 16:03:48 UTCMartin Wynne Hi, Yes that's what I'm doing, using the mouse wheel. I have added a lot more detail to the Cemetery. Cheers, Martin.
102017-04-15 17:28:33 UTCMike Baggaley Regarding items and/or icons seeming to vanish at different zoom levels, you may not be aware that each zoom level is generated separately over a period of time, so after you add something, a few hours later you may see it at one zoom level, but it may not have yet made it into the others. I usually...
12017-04-15 15:21:41 UTCtrigpoint Does this cemetery have a name? It is unlikely to be just Cemetery.
22017-04-15 15:36:14 UTCMartin Wynne Hi, Thanks for your message. Part of the cemetery is St Michael's Churchyard. The old sign on the other part is "Stourport Urban District Council Cemetery".

12017-04-14 17:57:35 UTCtrigpoint The correct way to describe this is amenity=playground.

22017-04-14 17:09:49 UTCtrigpoint No response and very unlikely to be verifiable so reverted
12017-04-14 14:01:43 UTCtrigpoint Hi, you seem to have deleted the Kidderminster Pay Scale area, why?
22017-04-14 14:31:15 UTCMartin Wynne Hi,

Sorry, I'm new to all this. I'm not aware of deleting the Kidderminster Pay Scale area? I have no knowledge of what that is, and Google doesn't seem to know either.

If I deleted it, it was not intentional. As far as I know I have only ever deleted things which I have added myself, and thin...

It is the area for which a plus bus ticket is valid. I will put it back if it was accidental.

12017-04-14 15:06:38 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM.
I have disconnected the park boundary from the centreline of the road and also converted the parts to a multipolygon.
22017-04-14 15:08:02 UTCchillly Welcome to OSM

Thanks for the detail

When you are adding an area please don't join it up to a road. The line that marks the road is the centreline so there will always be a gap.
12017-04-14 13:56:10 UTCchillly Welcome to OSM

You have added a park over the top of all the existing stuff. This is clearly a doodle and I will revert (undo) it.
22017-04-14 13:57:58 UTCtrigpoint Duplicate reverted
12017-04-14 13:38:45 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM.
Sidewalks should only be drawn as separate ways if there is a physical separation. Then you need to make sure you make all connections, otherwise you will cause some very silly routing, The normal way to add sidewalks is to tag the road, sidewalk=both|left|right.
12017-04-14 12:55:31 UTCtrigpoint Hi, these are definitley areas of grass, certainly not parks so I have reverted this change.
22017-04-14 17:39:09 UTCrgt my mistake, thought it was park of the park upriver, thanks for the change
12017-04-13 11:53:41 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM.
Deleting paths because they are private is the wrong way to go about things, they are a feature on the ground and should stay in OSM. If they are private they should be tagged access/foot/bicycle=private.

Keep up the good work.
12017-04-10 11:54:27 UTCtrigpoint Hi, I think this has gone a little wrong. What you have tagged as a private park is actually a garden. I have removed this error
12017-04-09 15:50:33 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM. I think this edit has gone a little wrong, you seem to have added a caravan site which should be tagged as tourism=caravan_site but you have probably pressed a wrong key and tagged it as a park. Please can you correct it?
22017-04-09 17:20:37 UTCNewton Grove Hi Trigpoint
Thanks for comment would love to correct it. Using ID browser editor I can not see how to tag it as tourism=caravan_site
32017-04-09 17:24:46 UTCNewton Grove Trigpoint
I think I have got it typed into "search". Now updated

12017-04-09 16:04:53 UTCtrigpoint Hi, we do not map airbnbs in osm. I am reverting this edit. It is also unlikely to be in the middle of the road.
12017-04-09 15:56:04 UTCtrigpoint Hi, the correct way to map aavement which is attached to a road is by the tag sidewalk=left|right|both. They should not be mapped as separate ways unless there is a physical separation. Mapping as you are doing breaks rendering and spoils OSM for its users. Highway=pedestrian is intended to be used ...
12017-04-09 15:46:04 UTCtrigpoint Hi, the YHA in Earls Court is already mapped. I am therefor removing your duplication.
I also doubt that Casa de Ania is in the middle of the road.
12017-04-09 08:54:43 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM. Thank you for your contribution however there are a couple of issues.
It is still a building, area=yes on its own does nothing and is not needed on a building.
In order to render it needs a tag, rather than remove the shop tag it should be changed to shop=charity, if you want t...
12017-04-08 15:29:58 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM. Thank you for your addition however it looks like it should be a recreation ground rather than a park.

32017-04-08 15:14:41 UTCtrigpoint Thank you for making the corrections, however your changeset comment is still hashtaged, hashtags belong on twitter, not in OSM, thanks.

32017-04-08 12:56:07 UTCtrigpoint The mapping of these also feels wrong.

However the site uses google maps which makes the data incompatible with OSM even if ...
12017-04-08 11:14:48 UTCtrigpoint Hi, I know the tagging here was inconsistent. But this section was probably right.
Kingsland Bridge and the associated roads are privately owned and not PROW hence access=permissive was correct.

12017-04-07 16:23:21 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM.
What is the actual source of these edits? The document you quote does not have specific permission for use.
22017-04-07 22:36:51 UTCItay Greenspon Hi,

I'm a resident of this community and am using my local knowledge of the area.

The document is an accurate reflection of the actual layout.
12017-04-07 12:24:30 UTCtrigpoint Does this shop still exist?
The domain is for sale.
22017-04-07 13:52:44 UTCti-lo I can't check it personally. Left a "fixme" entry. In case you can check it directly, you may certainly edit it.
12017-04-07 11:54:37 UTCRobert Whittaker In this changeset, you've created a node with an address, but tagged it as a bank/building society. Abbey Street appears to be a residential street, so are you sure this is correct?
22017-04-07 12:20:11 UTCtrigpoint Hi Robert
I have already removed a similar node by this user from this location. The name 'Home' gives it away as a personal marker by a user.
This one should also be removed.
Cheers Phil
12017-04-06 17:00:48 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM. The correct way to tag a field where sheep graze is landuse=farmland, although farmland is normally left blank.
For some reason you have made a mistake and tagged it as water, wont the sheep drown?
22017-04-06 17:24:52 UTCwir3d123 Appreciate the advice. New to this as you can probably tell... I think i have corrected this now. Please tell me if i need to change it again.
12017-04-05 20:44:39 UTCPillock Wrong description.
Changed carpark to two seperate areas as you cannot drive from the Public carpark (south west) to the Red Lion Carpark (north east) and they have separate entrances.
22017-04-06 16:55:23 UTCtrigpoint Can you walk between the two, or is there some sort of barrier?
32017-04-07 11:24:44 UTCPillock You can walk through a gap in the fence but not drive. The red lion carpark is customers only so should be separate.
12017-04-06 10:06:43 UTCMike Baggaley Hi, is foot allowed as well? Perhaps access=no could be removed?

Cheers, Mike
22017-04-06 16:53:56 UTCtrigpoint As it is designated as a public_bridleway foot is very defiintely allowed, as are horses and bikes. The bicycle=yes tag is therefore pointless and adds tag clutter.
32017-05-03 10:13:56 UTCjogger333 Dear Mike, Looking at the wiki, one should indeed make the usage clear with appropriate access tagging:

42017-05-03 10:45:54 UTCMike Baggaley Hi Jogger333 , No I think the tagging was was incorrect (the original done by Russ McD). The update by bttyA was what brought it to light. The designation=public_bridleway would set the default access of foot, bicycle and horse=yes, however, access=no would override this and set them all to no. This...

62017-05-03 19:05:47 UTCMike Baggaley Unfortunately, I can't find a reference any more - the pages on access and UK mapping guidelines appear to have been changed towards the end of last year with the meaning of designated being changed. Bizarrely, the access=designated page now says the value is deprecated without saying what replaces ...
72017-05-04 07:42:55 UTCjogger333 Oh yes, the information is really vague. This will make it a bit difficult to conclude routing rules from it that are correct worldwide, not only in UK.

12017-04-06 16:46:11 UTCtrigpoint Hi, what is the source of this edit?
You have removed footpath L57 and the airport trail for example. L57 is a PROW and cannot simply be closed, it will at most have been diverted. Do you have any reference to this?

The features I've removed have all gone this week. The construction area I've added is the full area where ground work has started. (Obviously it's impossible to get GPS tracks at the moment as there is no access).
The roads which are closed, such as the junction with Ashby Road and...

Thank s again
52017-04-06 15:46:00 UTCAnd Albert Fair Trading Ltd I can't see the tag point to change it?
62017-04-06 16:13:24 UTCtrigpoint Hi, also spotted that you have used=ele=1, that means 1m above sealevel. The correct tag is layer=1, as already used on Eastgate Street North.
12017-04-05 18:07:36 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM
Thank you for your addition but please remember that changeset comments are intended to inform other mappers of your intent and should be in plain language.
Meaningless hashtag comments fail to do that, please do not use them in OSM.
12017-04-05 12:48:46 UTCtrigpoint Hi, is this a real business that customers can visit?
I was about to ask, the website looks like it is contact by web or phone only so should not be in OSM.
Cheers Phil
22017-04-05 12:53:11 UTCandrewsh No idea, I just added the correct tag.
32017-04-05 12:53:50 UTCandrewsh Hmm, the website says they're in Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire:
4 – 12 Kempson Close
Gatehouse Way Industrial Estate
42017-04-05 12:54:56 UTCandrewsh I will probably remove them. Thanks for paying attention. It looked like a legitimate business to me… which it probably isn't. Well, not in Oxford, at least.
52017-04-05 12:59:01 UTCtrigpoint Thank you.
It looked like spam, both the username and long description.
62017-04-05 13:00:46 UTCandrewsh Well, these two looked like spam, but the website looked okay-ish to me. I should have checked the address :)
12017-04-04 18:50:56 UTCchillly Welcome to OSM

You have tagged something as a village (place=village) but you have called it Llanddew church. Is it a church or the place? I think the place is called Llanddew.

If it is a church, is this different from the Church of St David which is already in place? If so, you need to add a...
22017-04-04 21:53:04 UTCtrigpoint The village was already mapped as Llanddew, which was correct according to OS OpenData, my view is that this edit is probably a personal marker should be reverted, it altered an existing object.
12017-04-04 17:42:49 UTCtrigpoint Hi, postboxes do not normally have names, they have a reference number which is already mapped. The name you have added is just a description so I removed the name.
12017-04-03 18:17:59 UTCtrigpoint Hello, is there any reason you have changed these halts to stations?
When I last caught a train to Llandecwyn I had to ask the guard to stop, which makes it a halt.

12017-04-01 17:09:55 UTCtrigpoint Hi, are you really sure this postbox exists?
It was created by a user and the odd tags make it look like some sort of personal marker or misuse of a tag.
The rubbish tags are likely to indicate to a local mapper that a survey is needed and by cleaning the apparant rubbish you have left a c...
22017-04-01 17:30:31 UTCupendrakarukonda Hello Trigpoint,

I deleted the tags which are not correct. I added a note in that place for confirmation of existence of post box in that place.


32017-04-01 17:42:50 UTCtrigpoint A quick search reveals that Abras is some sort of Brasilian organisation at the address given. It looks like typical mistagging by a user.
12017-04-01 17:13:36 UTCtrigpoint Is there a reason you have changed these tags, what survey did you carry out?
12017-03-28 07:46:16 UTCtrigpoint Hi, is this name correct?
Creek is an American word, and not used in terms of UK geography.
22017-03-28 07:59:23 UTCsharync Yep it's the correct name.

42017-03-23 23:32:56 UTCPolarbear Is there any evidence that supports the assumption that the road forming a roundabout does not carry the name of the roundabout? Is there a streetsign posted along the loop carrying the road name and not the roundabout name? I only know cases where the roundabout name is posted.
12017-03-22 18:22:26 UTCtrigpoint Hi, you seem to be using a strange imagery URL. What were you copying and do wehave explicit permission to use that imformation?
22017-03-22 21:04:51 UTCjesus_army Information came from a GPX trace rather than the map tile but I will remove that way and re-edit for clarity
12017-03-21 22:00:07 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM.
In OSM we map what exists on the ground, you have for some bizarre reason changed the Chertsey town node to a hospital. This sort of edit breaks the map for other users and will be reverted.
22017-03-21 22:44:39 UTCtrigpoint Reverted
12017-03-21 22:03:44 UTCtrigpoint The hosital is already mapped, for some reason you have created a duplicate node.
12017-03-21 18:33:37 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM. You seem to have changed a place node to a park, the park is already mapped and the name you added looks very unlikely. I have put this back to the place node
12017-03-20 17:55:23 UTCtrigpoint HI, I am not convinced there is a legal no-U turn restriction here. I have never seen any signage and if there was one, how would I get into Knighton Junction Lane or the New Road Inn?
However I have spotted that Welford Road is incorrectly mapped as a single carriageway so I will fix that.
22017-03-20 18:36:47 UTCCebderby Hi, If turning right from the southbound Welford Rd into Knighton Jnct Ln or the pub is ok then this new turn restriction can't remain.

32017-03-20 21:45:59 UTCtrigpoint Hi, I have looked at this on OSMand and it has got a very serious routing issue. Both OSRM and mapzen work perfectly here.
Maybe it should be reported to OSMand?

42017-03-20 22:04:31 UTCCebderby I suspect it is over-penalising a route from a secondary to a primary road via a minor way, even though it seems short and obvious. Trying with 'fuel efficient' route option (ie. short route) OsmAnd gets the right turn, it's only the 'fastest' route with the problem. For now, I've removed the no-U...
52017-03-20 22:36:51 UTCtrigpoint I agree the cross ways should be secondary, and I would consider Putney Road/Commercial Square to be tertiary. But a router should cope with the mapping as is, classifications are an indication of importance rather than speed, especially when they are tagged as 30 mph.

I am working through Mapill...

I see you have added Humbleton Farm, which is great. We outline the farmyard, as best we can, and ass landuse=farmyard, not place=farm. That will make it consistent with most farms in the UK on OSM
22017-03-19 15:30:25 UTCtrigpoint You have also joined it to a powerline, which is obviously incorrect and to the centreline of Mill Lane.

12017-03-11 15:18:09 UTCtrigpoint Hi, what is the source of this information?
I have never seen any evidence for the existence of a Roman Road and find it highly unlikely that it followed the modern alignment of the A49 between Weston and Prees.
Also this type of information is more appropriate in OpenHistoricalMap rather then OSM...
22017-03-12 09:35:51 UTCtrigpoint The North Shropshire section appears to be pure fiction, the Roman Road is only shown on your claimed source in very short sections. Where did the rest come from?
It is very unlikely that the Roman road followed the present roads through Shawbury.
I do not have a usable source but I do know it did...

This has been constructed at a natural...
42017-03-12 15:16:56 UTCtrigpoint Thank you for these updates, it does seem much more believable and there are references to the Roman Road on OS Opendata.
I would suggest that the route was not through Prees village but followed a straight line from the present junction with the B5065 via Prees Church which forms a straight line ...
52017-03-12 15:29:38 UTCtrigpoint I should probably add that is is likely that the course of the road drifted over time and that up until WW2 this section of the A49 was a minor road which was upgraded as a bypass.

32017-03-10 18:56:53 UTCtrigpoint Don't worry about changing the existing ones, not sure if that is even possible. I was just jokingly making you aware so you would fix it next time you edit.
42017-03-10 19:27:12 UTCGlucosamine Taken in the spirit intended. Not the first time this has caught me out when using a specific title when I normally use a generic - will try to remember to check for at least the immediate future - though I'm sure I'll slip up again at some point.

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.

12017-03-06 13:10:46 UTCtrigpoint Hi, way appears to be total fantasy. There is no separate way visible on bing or mapbox imagery. Also many entry exit nodes are shared which causes exit counts to be wrong, i.e. you have to enter a roundabout to leave it. Oneway on a roundabout is not neede...
22017-03-07 01:26:47 UTCDyserth Fantastic appearances can be deceptive.

22017-03-07 01:51:43 UTCDyserth If I remember correctly at some point iD was not showing roundabouts as oneway unless they were tagged as such. I did change a few tags to reflect this as clearly roundabouts are not two-way flows but clearly this flaw in the editor has now been rectified. However because that edit was done 2 years ...

12017-03-04 17:30:44 UTCtrigpoint Hi, thank you for adding these footpaths, however they should not end where the gate/stile is, they need to connect to the road otherwise routers will see them as dead ends and not use them.
I have connected the footpaths to the roads.
Cheers Phil
12017-03-02 20:17:18 UTCtrigpoint Hi, not sure how closely you were looking here, but the smaller roundabout is clearly a mini-roundabout.
22017-03-03 09:32:49 UTCchris_debian Hi, trigpoint.

Thanks for bringing this to my attention. I've done some reading, and it seems that a mini-roundabout is frequently described as being a white painted circle, on the road, or a slightlyraised white bump, in the road. Having reexamined this roundabout, for it's construction and size...
32017-03-03 21:25:48 UTCtrigpoint The definition of a mini-roundabout is not necessarily painted white, but it needs to be traversable. At least one in Oakengates is cobblestones.
This one is very definitely a mini-roundabout, and painted white, so I have corrected it.

12017-02-24 18:22:40 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM. Priory Country Park is already mapped as a nature reserve. Adding a park over the top seems contradictory and doubles the name. Bing imagery seems to confirm it is not what we normally tag as a park.

12017-03-02 18:05:22 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM. I have been trying to work out what you were doing here and all I could find were two new ways which had no tags. I am going to revert this change.
Please carry on editing, but it is better to map things locally that you know well to start with.
12017-03-01 10:13:00 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM.
In OSM we map what exists on the ground, the tags you have added suggest that this is on the wrong continent. Please remove and, if it.really exists, an appropriate place. But please remember that OSM is not a business directory.

12017-02-09 14:20:13 UTCBCNorwich Hello and Welcome to OpenStreetMap. IMHO one ought not to assume speed limits, it's really just guessing. Would it be possible to go there and properly survey the roads.
22017-02-09 14:27:56 UTCBCNorwich Oh and the foot-way, are cycles allowed there? Also the foot-way is not joined to the roads at each end so software will not be able to route along it.
32017-02-09 19:15:50 UTCmarkf0wle I live on this road. The speed limit isn't sign posted on the estate, my assumption was my interpretation of the highway code. I will double check & correct if nessecary.

I will amend the footpath. Yes, bicycles are permitted on all the footpaths in the area to my knowledge.
42017-02-11 15:53:48 UTCtrigpoint You have tagged Welling Road as lanes=1, is that true? It doesn't look like a single track road on bing imagery.
Also 20mph areas cannot exist without signs.
52017-02-11 22:57:23 UTCmarkf0wle OK, good shout. I have corrected the lanes on Welling Rd, is 2 lanes - 1 in each direction.

I have too found this reviewing the highway code, therefore the official speed limit would be 30mph as that is the last posted speed as you enter Welling Road from Brentwood Road.
62017-02-12 07:14:37 UTCBCNorwich Would you then correct the speed limits on the estate please?
It would be wrong for OSM, (the best map in the world), to knowingly contain wrong data.

22017-02-08 22:54:03 UTCB'o'B The diversion route was temporary and the Rutland Round and E229 footpath are now back on the original line which is the straighter path to the NE of the path I deleted.

22017-02-05 17:26:54 UTCJesus Tudela I'm sorry, but I have a reservation in a hostel (LSE Bankside House, located in the same direction, and in that same Building, and I thought ALL building was a Hostel. I am going to put a new point that reflects the Host...
12017-02-04 17:44:21 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM. Thank you for these additions, they are very useful. One small thing, these types of path are normally tagged as highway=footway, highway=pedestrian is normally used for pedestranised streets such as Gallowtree Gate. Keep up the good work.
12017-02-04 09:56:17 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM. The post office was already mapped so I have removed the duplication.
12017-02-04 09:48:23 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM. You seem to havbe misplaced this node. It has an address in the US yet you have put it in London.
I am reverting this edit.
Please drop the verbal diarrhea in the changeset comment.
12017-02-03 13:43:08 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM. Some of your edits seem a little strange. For example if I were to visit this location will I actually see a monument? and if I do is it really in the middle of the road?
Also tagging a modern office building and a bike rack as historic is very bizarre. What were you trying to a...
22017-02-03 14:05:24 UTCStuart Lennox-Hill I seem to be having some difficulty with the tagging, it's copying from history. (Same with the edit notes... it's using the old one).

The office building is Vantage House, right next to it is the bike rack, they should be two completely separate edits?! I had to un-merge it once already. Zoom in...
12017-02-02 12:38:20 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM. The school is already mapped as an area and with a name.
I am removing this duplication.
Cheers Phil
12017-02-01 10:33:09 UTCchillly Welcome to OSM

Thanks for the new road. You may like to join it to Millhall Road. This allows routing by phone and satnav to get people to the road.

22017-02-01 10:37:13 UTCtrigpoint Also please could you capitalise the name correctly, thanks
12017-01-31 20:51:29 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM.
We try to map things accurately as they exist in the real world
This and many of your other additions appear to be doodles, this one is on top of a road.
22017-02-01 07:38:33 UTCBCNorwich Removed duplicated way.
12017-01-31 20:05:09 UTCtrigpoint I am reverting this change, you have turned a correctly mapped skateboard area into a park, that is considered vandalism
12017-01-31 19:46:51 UTCtrigpoint Hi, you seem to have changed a wood that had been added by another mapper to a park. I can see it is a wood so I have fixed it.
12017-01-31 19:35:07 UTCtrigpoint HI, you seem to have added a park to a mountain area. In OSM we map what exists on the ground and this is not most peoples idea of a park.
I am reverting this edit.
12017-01-29 21:44:19 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM. The paths you added were already mapped as service roads, you therefore created duplications. I have removed these.
12017-01-29 21:00:42 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM. Something has gone a little wrong here, you have added impossible paths which pass through houses. I have reverted this change.
Please remember that we add only what really exists.
12017-01-26 22:08:34 UTCchillly Welcome to OSM
Thanks for the edit. You need to add amenity=fuel to mark the object as a fuel station. It probably isn't called 'Petrol Station', so changing the name to the name that is displayed on the business would be good too.

22017-01-29 16:55:17 UTCtrigpoint I have tagged this from memory, will check sometime or NWillowsrough can confirm.
Cheers Phil
12017-01-29 16:39:27 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM. I have reverted this changeset as you have incorrectly changed recreation grounds and a common to parks.
The clue is in the name i.e. Fryern Rec is not likely to be a park.
12017-01-28 20:43:03 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM. In OSM we map things that really exist on the ground, we do not map thing that do not exist such as your reservoir, a garden as a park or footpaths through gardens. I am reverting your edits
12017-01-27 18:10:02 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM. I assume this footpath is meant to connect to Wellbeck Drive? For it to be usable it does need to connect. Shout up if you need a hand.
22017-01-27 19:20:13 UTCBCNorwich I don't think there is a footpath goes through the houses just there.
12017-01-27 17:42:08 UTCtrigpoint You seem to have deleted all the buildings in the botanic gardens, that is vandalism. Reverting
12017-01-27 17:28:25 UTCtrigpoint These areas were correctly mapped as grass, they are not parks. Reverting
12017-01-27 17:22:22 UTCtrigpoint You have for some reason changed two schools to colleges, that is clearly incorrect they are very definitely schools. I am reverting this edit
12017-01-27 17:06:57 UTCtrigpoint Reverting fiction
12017-01-27 16:18:36 UTCtrigpoint This footpath is a duplication of the existing cycleway. I am reverting this edit.
12017-01-27 16:17:33 UTCtrigpoint This footpath is fiction, I am reverting this edit
12017-01-27 16:13:45 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM. OSM is a live database, used by many people and as such we only add what exists in the real world. There is no park here, it is houses so I am reverting this edit
12017-01-26 23:45:15 UTCtrigpoint Hi, thank you for your edit. You do seem to be making things complicated, a relation for your first edit. In this case it is not really needed, just join the two way and put the tags there. And of course delete the relation.
Give me a shout if you need a hand.
12017-01-26 23:38:13 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM. Something appears to have gone a bit wrong here. You seem to have deleted a large number of POIs. I am sure that was an accident so I am going to revert this changeset.
If you would like to comment and explain what you were intending then we can help
12017-01-26 23:30:40 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM, I am reverting this as we only map what already exists and this is housing.
12017-01-26 23:16:36 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM. Please remember that OSM is a live database and that we only map what exists in the real world,
This area is clearly not a park, I have reverted this change.
BTW It is unlikely you will find a missing park in Wigston.
12017-01-26 12:51:58 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM. Thank you for your addition, however Greenfields Rec was already correctly mapped as a recreation_ground. Your park was a duplication which I have removed.
Please ask if you need advice on adding information to OSM.
Cheers Phil
12017-01-24 20:35:03 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM. The area around a church should be tagged as a churchyard. It is not likely to be a park. That seems to be mistagging.
12017-01-24 18:21:18 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM.
Thank you for correcting the position of the Admiral Duncan, although we only map the building where it is, I have tidyed this up and mapped the car park. The beer garden isn't exactly a park so I have retagged it.
The village green can be tagged as a village green, no need to ...

12017-01-21 16:24:31 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM and thank you for your addition of a footpath. It looks good.
As you are local I wonder if you could check the legal access status of Vincents Roadm it has previously been tagged as access=permissive which looks a little odd.
Thanks Phil
12017-01-02 14:17:11 UTCimagico I would consider this essentially mapping for the renderer - beaches do extent below the high water line obviously and natural=tidal_beach is not documented while equivalent established tagging exists (natural=beach + tidal=yes)

If the lowest parts here is still a beach (i.e. wave formed) or a ti...
22017-01-15 11:05:48 UTCdmgroom_ct The wiki is very clear that the tag "natural = beach" is only for the part of the beach above the MHW line.

So what you refer to as established tagging is still in contravention of what is expected.
32017-01-16 11:03:54 UTCimagico Well - the 'how to map' section on the wiki does not represent common mapping practice here and contradicts the basic definition of natural=beach as a landform.

The wiki by the way currently also says you should tag the part of a beach below the high water line as natural=shoal - which of course ...
42017-01-17 14:26:32 UTCdmgroom_ct I will emnail you via the OSM msg system
52017-01-21 16:16:05 UTCtrigpoint Please don't do that, it is better to keep these discussion in the open.
Thanks Phl
12017-01-18 19:23:13 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM. This edit looks very odd, what is the source you are using.
It seems very odd to map mud around jettys.
Also please could you use meaningful changeset comments describing what you have done so that other mappers know what you are intending. #thamesmapathon tells us nothing.
12017-01-18 19:11:26 UTCtrigpoint Please see comments on note
The spelling does not match OS Opendata Locator or local tradition.
Thanks Phil
22017-01-19 09:47:38 UTCACS1986 By bizarre coincidence I stopped at the premier inn next door earlier in the year and noticed the Dutch spelling at the time. Unless it has been changed Kopje is the spelling on the road sign
12017-01-16 16:20:28 UTCmaldav I do not seem to be able to label the route 6. What am I doing wrong?
22017-01-17 12:44:20 UTCtrigpoint What do you mean by label? What are you expecting
32017-01-17 13:08:40 UTCSK53 If you want it to appear on the transport map I think you need to put the bus route number in the ref tag, so add ref=6 and then it should appear along the relevant roads. Here's an example from my own area:
42017-01-17 21:39:09 UTCmaldav Many thanks for this information. It took me a while to realise that I was missing the Relation:route. I have now found the details on the wiki.

22017-01-13 20:14:06 UTCBCNorwich Hello Phil,

No I didn't miss it, I left it for you, please see my comment here :-, just joking. It will always be football to me! What do you think, conform or not?

Regards Bernard
12017-01-13 19:15:46 UTCtrigpoint Another undisguised mass edit, with no explanation. And you are still ignoring mappers comments.
22017-01-15 10:00:52 UTCdmgroom_ct I was nit ignoring mappers commenst, I have no idea what changeset comments were not being emailed to me, but to be fair there were enough other ways of contacting me.
12017-01-11 12:57:35 UTCDaveF Hi
Out of curiosity, what software are you using to validate these errors?
22017-01-11 18:27:18 UTCtrigpoint And what are you actually fixing, and please map in smaller areas so that you don't waste mappers time trying to work out which of the 6 pages are in their area.
32017-01-15 09:56:22 UTCdmgroom_ct It's not a mass edit. Each edit was individually made my me after viewing Bing imagery, looking at the error I was trying to fix, and then fixing it in JOSM

The sort of problems fixed are:

mainly highways which do not connect to other highways, for a number of reasons , including:

12017-01-10 18:58:35 UTCtrigpoint Hi, FP20 is a public right of way reference and should be put in the prow_ref tag, rather than the name. The name tag is for names.
It is certainly not FP20 for the majority of its length, it obviously isn't a Leicestershire right of way reference.
It also needs a bit more, I doubt it is Derbyshir...
22017-01-11 09:56:41 UTCDerby45 Hi Phil, I continued on an existing path, I guess the name was already in there.

I've seen a few of those names in the area, I'm aware some older OS maps show these references.

I've cut the path where I continued the line. Name removed from my edit, but I've left the original as it is for now....

12017-01-04 18:07:04 UTCtrigpoint Hi Geoff, welcome to OSM but please remember that OSM is a live database. It should not be used for testing.

22017-01-05 13:53:35 UTCdebelasers Hi Robert, Yes the node should be in one of the buildings but I couldn't place it correctly on the first go and then couldn't work out how to move it. We are in the north east corner of Appley Court, directly facing the access road.
And yes we moved from St Francis Way in November so I was trying t...
32017-01-05 13:54:57 UTCdebelasers Also, Electronics shop is a poor description of what we do (we design industrial lasers) but it was the closest I could find
42017-01-06 15:19:38 UTCtrigpoint Shop is probably the wrong description, made_made=works, product=industrial_lasers would fit better I think.
You will need to use a proper computer based editor, such as iD, rather than as it only allows a very limited subset of pre-defined tags to be used.
12017-01-06 13:49:36 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM.
The correct way to tag a a postcode is addr:postcode rather than the name tag. I am not sure what Wy Wyri is, but the middle of the road is an odd place, postcodes normally apply to places where mail is delivered to, and maybe use addr:housename.
Trees are mapped as natural=tre...
22017-01-06 13:52:31 UTCMikeValentineUK Cheers Phil.
I'm completely new here and clearly blundering around whilst trying to make myself accessible to the World!
The trees are a local landmark and regular navigation aid.
32017-01-06 14:00:20 UTCtrigpoint Thank you Mike, they sound a useful thing to add. If you change them to natural=tree, you probably need a new node so you have one for each tree, then tag them as natural=tree then they will show on the map.
You can add species:en=oak, maybe species:cy if you can.
12017-01-06 13:34:56 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM.
THis edit looks a little odd, a stream that passes through a house.
I am reverting this edit.
12017-01-05 12:56:04 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM.
Heathrow is already mapped, please do not add personal markers to the map.
I have removed this node.
12017-01-04 18:08:55 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM. This should probably be amenity=social club, bar implies it is open to the public, whereas a social club has membership rules.
Cheers Phil
22017-01-04 19:56:08 UTCBCNorwich Yes welcome to OSM. Actually the facility is already mapped and all information is on the building outline. It is tagged as amenity=social_club, so I have removed your POI so as not to duplicate the information, hope that's OK.
32017-01-04 19:59:23 UTCtrigpoint Well spotted, the building and club outline are separate and overlapping ways. That could do with a tidy up while you are removing the node.
42017-01-04 21:02:22 UTCBCNorwich Sorry forgot to mention the duplicate I removed as well.
12017-01-02 14:09:57 UTCtrigpoint Hello, welcome to OSM. Thank you for your edit however something has gone a little wrong here, you seem to have created 2 untagged ways on top of existing ways.
What were you trying to achieve, maybe we can help.
Cheers Phil
22017-01-02 14:10:52 UTCchillly Hi, Welcome to OSM.

You seem to be struggling. You have added two things over te top of existing roads, but they are not tagged in any way to say what you intend them to be. Did you mean to save this? Would you like some help to tidy this up?

We would like you to add or improve stuff in the a...
12016-12-31 11:52:32 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM.
This addition looks a little odd, looking at bing imagery it does not look like a car park, or accessible.
What were you intending, the name trailhead also looks odd. That is an American concept.
22016-12-31 19:15:46 UTCSparky59 .

This is a new hill walk that a local farmer has created to allow the public to use 4 purpose made trails (each between 1.5 and 5.5 km long, from the car park, along the side of the river and then up into the hills before returning to the car park.

The car park is a small stone area with room...
32016-12-31 21:17:46 UTCtrigpoint Thank you for that information, it just looked a bit odd with no road link.
Its not possible with, but would it be possible to login to osm on a pc and add the access road, bridge and car park and maybe the paths too?
Ask if you need any help.
Cheers Phil
12016-12-30 19:17:59 UTCSomeoneElse Is the pub really separate to the "Inn at Ardgour"? Does it have a different name?
22016-12-31 17:29:52 UTCtrigpoint They were one and the same place when I was there a few years ago
12016-12-31 16:30:58 UTCtrigpoint Hi, thank you for your addition however you should connect the steps/paths to the road in some way otherwise you are just creating an unusable island.

12016-12-31 14:49:36 UTCtrigpoint Hi, what does fgmn mean?
12016-12-31 13:58:29 UTCRobJN Not bogus trigpoint! Please check before reverting. This is a grassed "park" area with paths through it.
22016-12-31 14:03:01 UTCRobJN Needs a proper survey but I've done a basic revert of your revert as the user was right to add a park here: changeset 44807049
32016-12-31 14:25:14 UTCtrigpoint Sorry Rob, it does need a survey but not sure I would consider a small grassy area in the middle of a housing estate to be a park.
12016-12-31 11:22:18 UTCtrigpoint Hello, thank you for your additions. In the UK we use footway, rather than path, for mapping PROW. I have changed these to footway and added designation=public_footpath. Not sure why we need path at all to be honest, it just confuses new mappers.
The southern path you added is actually a track, aga...

12016-12-30 13:17:44 UTCWynndale Did you mean to enter the postcode as NW10 7F?
22016-12-30 14:37:17 UTCORaha Well there are two postcodes assigned to this building, 7FR and 7FS
32016-12-30 15:56:58 UTCtrigpoint I assume they are for different businesses?

If so then it would be better to add a node for each and remove the postcode from the building.
42016-12-30 22:43:59 UTCORaha No it's a residential building. One block and different flats have different postcodes
12016-12-29 19:27:40 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM, thank you for your edit however are you sure it is a park, imagery suggests a school to me.
22016-12-29 21:03:46 UTCxWolfeBlitz Hiya yea its a park, there is a nursery there aswell but mainly its a public park
32016-12-29 21:51:06 UTCtrigpoint Thank you, keep on adding to OSM.
Coalisland looks rather empty, there must be load of stuff to add. Schools, pubs, shops and stuff
12016-12-29 19:19:37 UTCtrigpoint Please remember that OSM is a public database, it should not be used for personal markers
12016-12-29 18:55:12 UTCtrigpoint Hi, I am not sure why you changed the relation type from the British Museum, but the type multipolygon was correct, there is no such relation as building.
I am fixing this mistake, but please read
Cheers Phil
12016-12-29 18:04:38 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM.
Shiprow 15 is a very odd name for a hotel, however 15 Shiprow is the address of the Ibis which is already mapped. I have removed your duplication as it is in the wrong place
12016-12-28 13:33:01 UTCtrigpoint Hi, something has gone a little wrong here.
Chessington South station is now tagged both as an active station and a disused one. Which is correct?
22016-12-28 16:20:04 UTCshitworth Ah, that probably explains my confusion at not being able to spot it earlier. It's definitely an active station:
32016-12-28 17:05:15 UTCtrigpoint It was changed a few weeks ago, will comment on that and tidy up here. He has also changed the platforms to disused.
42016-12-28 17:28:32 UTCtrigpoint Hopefully all fixed now
12016-12-28 17:12:00 UTCtrigpoint Hi, something has gone rather wrong with this change. You changed Chessington South to disused, which has obviously confused local mappers as it is very much still in use. I have fixed this but in future please can you add meaningful comments to your changes so that other mappers can work out what y...
12016-12-28 15:12:02 UTCtrigpoint Hi, the name tag is for actual names. Gated road is a description, if there are gates then map them but please to not use name for stuff like this.
12016-12-27 18:12:37 UTCchillly Welcome to OSM

When I see your first edit deleting stuff with comment of deleting excessive detail, this is worrying. OSM wants MORE detail not less. Why have you deleted stuff like this?
22016-12-27 18:19:21 UTCchillly Looking at this more closely I have reverted this edit. There is no way all this should be deleted.
32016-12-27 18:47:04 UTCBCNorwich Just wanted to add support to the decision to revert this changeset. It's very easy to make mistakes when you first jump into OSM mapping, I'm sure freefromsociety can make positive contributions. Just takes little research as to best practices first.
42016-12-28 09:27:31 UTCSomeoneElse Whilst it might make sense to restore some of this detail, I'm a bit sceptical about others - I doubt that is any sort of "pedestrian area", for example.
52016-12-28 14:04:24 UTCtrigpoint Also, whilst not part of this changeset. The A16 is incorrectly mapped as a dual carriageway. This could use a tidy up.
12016-12-27 20:59:33 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM. The paths you added in Central Park were a duplication of the existing cycleways. I have removed the duplication.
12016-12-27 18:13:30 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM. This edit has gone a little wrong, the Drayton Court Hotel is already mapped, I have removed your duplication.
12016-12-26 14:57:51 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM. The paths you have added seem to be pure fiction. There are no marks on the ground and they cross pitches.
Please remember that in OSM we only add what exists in the real world.
12016-12-24 11:16:05 UTCtrigpoint Does really exist, it looks like it goes through someones garden?
22016-12-25 16:59:12 UTCAfrocomb Yes. the three tracks can be seen on this source

They can also normally be found on the local council website rights of way map (
32016-12-26 10:36:07 UTCtrigpoint Thank you, just couln't see it on aerial imagery
12016-12-26 10:05:33 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM. The footpath you have added is a duplication of the existing cycleway, I have removed the duplication.
12016-12-25 16:12:18 UTCtrigpoint Reverted
12016-12-25 16:08:48 UTCtrigpoint Please remember that OSM is a public database, please do not add personal markers.
I am reverting this addition
12016-12-25 13:43:03 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM. Please remember that OSM is a map in which we map what exists in the real world. Please do not retag objects for your own purposes, this is considered vandalism.
I have reverted your changes as neither are parks.
12016-12-24 17:01:39 UTCtrigpoint Is there really a pear tree in the middle of the road?
22016-12-24 17:05:05 UTCHarrymapping So sorry, it's left a bit, there's a residents pear tree at the end of the road.
32016-12-24 17:31:34 UTCtrigpoint You may want to create new node and tag it as natural=tree, tree=pear.
Just creating a point with a name does nothing.
Cheers Phil
12016-12-24 17:02:03 UTCtrigpoint Please can you explain this?
22016-12-24 17:03:26 UTCHarrymapping There's a small plaque on the wall for Bobby.
32016-12-24 17:30:04 UTCtrigpoint This is normally mapped as historic=memorial then memorial=plaque. You may want to add some more detail, they usually say a bit more than Bobby.

Aerial imagery suggests that this path does not exist, can you convince me otherwise?
22016-12-24 08:15:25 UTCBCNorwich Yes Welcome to OpenStreetMap. The park doesn't look right either. I can find no reference to a park or public space here. It is likely to be part of Woolmer's park, a large farm.

12016-12-23 17:27:59 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM.
I think this change has gone a little wrong, you have changed New Walk from a pedestrian street to a footway which seems a little odd to me as it has been mapped that way since it was first mapped 9 years ago. Just wondering why you consider it to be wrong?
You have also create...
22016-12-24 10:48:51 UTCtrigpoint I have restored New Walk and Highcross to highway=pedestrian
12016-12-24 09:42:58 UTCtrigpoint HI, welcome to OSM. We only map what exists on thbe ground, and we do not mis-tag what does exist. Changing a road to a footpath means map users will not be able to route over it. I consider your change vandalism and have reverted it.
12016-12-23 09:02:07 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM.
What is the source of this addition? I am not aware of any such path. The name also looks a bit odd.
Cheers Phil
22016-12-23 09:39:29 UTCZanigan Hey Phil

Yeah, made corrections to the playground in town. For some reason the name 'Minsterley Play Ground (with in-built GYM)' kept to other corrections made for some reason. Would I have to delete and re-create again to change the title?
There is also a public footpath that goes directly thro...
32016-12-23 14:54:42 UTCtrigpoint There is no need to recreate the playgound, the odd title is only on the changset, although you may want to disconnect it from the road.

It would be good to map the legal lines, if a farmer illegally obst...
12016-12-22 00:33:40 UTCtrigpoint Hi, what is the source of these edits, this entire estate looks very unlikely to really exist.
22016-12-23 14:48:51 UTCtrigpoint I drove passed here today, your edits are entirely fiction. I intend to revert them.
12016-12-22 00:32:02 UTCtrigpoint Is tourism really the correct tag for ?
Aerial imagery suggest it is residental, rather than somewhere to go on holiday?
12016-12-21 23:07:04 UTCGinaroZ Hi, noticed you added a number of duplicate POIs in this changeset. I've removed some of them, please make sure you check buildings/nodes already present before adding duplicates next time :)
22016-12-22 00:26:11 UTCtrigpoint A miners welfare is normally tagged as amenity=social_club, it is unlikely to be a traditional pub.
12016-12-21 10:34:21 UTCtrigpoint Hi, whilst I can see that Dalefiemapld Drive has been extended on mapbox imagery, I don't see a turning circle. It looks like a cul-de-sac, you certainly cannot turn around without using reverse.
22016-12-26 10:52:37 UTCnikhilprabhakar Hi Trigpoint,

Excuse me for the late reply, I have removed the turn circle as per your feedback. Please have a look and lemme know if everything else is correct in this area. And thanks a lot for pointing this out.

12016-10-20 11:09:17 UTCMike Baggaley HI, can you please take a look at the changes you have made to highways you have named Melton Road B666.

22016-10-22 10:32:54 UTCtrigpoint I also don't believe that this is secondary road, you have changed it from a tertiary.

12016-12-20 20:02:05 UTCtrigpoint Hi, something went a little wrong with this changset. Whilst you created a building in Japan, you also dragged a crossing node in London. I have fixed the node drag and hopefully did not affect the building.
12016-12-20 19:39:11 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM. I think that something has gone a bit wrong here. We normally change the tagging on a closed pub to disused:amenity=pub. For some reason you have changed the name of the bus stop.
12016-12-20 19:36:56 UTCtrigpoint Hi, I don't think the postbox is actually named Post Box. The name tag should not normally be filled in for object such a postboxes.
12016-12-20 17:07:37 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM. What is actually here, is it a building or simply a signpost.
I imagine that you have made a typo and it is spelt Centre rather than the American way?

32016-12-22 21:38:05 UTCvbth Hi, the place might be right but the name was only Cymraeg for village Hall. Also it was not visioble on the (offline) map. therefore i set an named it. Just give it a "i"-button an name it "Myddfai Community Hall & Visitor Centre". thanks.
42016-12-27 10:55:17 UTCSomeoneElse @vbth I wouldn't worry too much about what any particular map does or doesn't show, since they all show different things. I've tried to merge everything together and added a building in .

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.

The admin_level=10 boundary already exists and you removed the place node which is important for navigation.
22016-12-19 20:48:41 UTCshirokazan The difficulty of the existing boundary is that it means that roads such as Curlew Croft are not recorded as Leighton Buzzard but Billington, which doesn't make any sense.
12016-12-17 10:58:07 UTCtrigpoint Please do not add spam to name tags or change the name of bus stops away from their official name. I am removing these tags.
22016-12-17 19:00:40 UTCSomeoneElse Actually, I'd suggest adding a "real_ale" tag, like here .
You won't be able to do this from MAPS.ME, but you will from the web-based editors at

22016-12-16 17:01:18 UTCmrlourobinson Apologies, I didnt realise it had added that comment. Seems to have kept the comment from a previous change for Missing Maps. I'll be careful it doesn't happen again.

12016-12-15 13:08:52 UTCBCNorwich Hello and Welcome to OpenStreetMap.
It is impossible to work out what you wanted to achieve with this addition to the live OSM database as there are no descriptive tags. What I can deduce is that as far as I am aware this line is not verifiable as existing in reality, (unless you can enlighten me)....
22016-12-15 15:05:26 UTCBrianWharf Feel free, what I was trying to achieve doesn't seem possible here. Also, you may wish to get somebody to read back your text as some of it seems rather condescending.
32016-12-15 16:23:49 UTCtrigpoint What were you trying to achieve? Maybe someone can help. OSN is based around tags, so any untagged object will do nothing in OSM.
12016-12-14 19:23:45 UTCtrigpoint Hi, did you discuss the removal of the building tags from HMS Belfast anywhere, such as with the GB community?
It is long accepted practice that permanently moored ships are tagged as buildings.
HMS Belfast is a significant national tourist attraction. I have replaced the tag you have removed.
22016-12-14 20:54:12 UTC4b696d I did not discuss anything. All I did was following the rules I found in the wiki which clearly state otherwise, but it is not my object to cause any trouble. In case you have complaints about my other edits please let me know. Don't worry about the ship, I will not touch it again.

22016-12-11 19:03:31 UTCJoeNerini1 Hi Phil,

The OpenStreetMap Wiki states that Town Halls "may just serve as a community meeting place" so I feel this classification is appropriate.

32016-12-15 16:59:00 UTCSK53 No this is not an appropriate classification. Use either amenity=village_hall or amenity=community_centre which are the accepted values for such places in the UK, and have been so for at least 6-7 years.

12016-12-05 12:59:59 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM. Thank you for your edit, however we tag disused things as disused:shop, disused:amenity etc. That tells the render not to render them. Changing the name implies there is an object called Empty, which is no the case.
Happy mapping, Phil
12016-12-05 12:50:06 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM. Thank you for your edit, however you do need to tag the objects you add. As a minimum they will need building=yes, area=yes isn't needed very often.

132016-12-02 15:20:50 UTCSomeoneElse @Mike Baggaley - I think you mean (I keep doing that too!)
142016-12-02 15:59:16 UTCSiHollett Mike, any reason why you couldn't do it? surely it would have taken less time for you to do it than to ask me to?

also, why am I responsible, when someone else erroneously made it secondary, rather than tertiary?

Anyway, I've changed it, though I have no idea why I'm being so nice. I even chan...
152016-12-02 16:32:06 UTCMike Baggaley Thanks for that, Si. I am not local to the area so don't know anything about the road, other than that it failed my check of secondary roads with a ref beginning with something other than a B, so I had no way of knowing which tag was incorrect. As the last change to the road was to set its ref, it s...
162016-12-02 16:37:59 UTCSiHollett OK, thanks Mike, that makes sense
172017-05-11 13:30:25 UTCEdLoach I just stumbled across UX6 and wondered why ref has been used in place of official_ref - but see there has been discussion already. It looks like we're being left to correct them as we find them?
12016-11-29 23:57:59 UTCtrigpoint Hi, I think the words Roman Road mean it was a Roman Road, its not the name.

32016-11-30 19:01:06 UTCA12B I can confirm this area of land is grass and can even be seen from the satellite imaginary.
42016-11-30 19:08:31 UTCSomeoneElse Er - not really. If you look at you can see a dog-leg of grass which covers part of the university's sports ground (which presumably is grass, but there's already a football pitch tagged there) amd also Manor Road itself (which presumably is asphalt rather than grass?

I did tell the on site ranger what ...
32016-11-28 20:27:42 UTCtrigpoint Thank you, walking them with a GPS is the best survey you can have. There is no need to justify what you have seen, unlike wikipedia we prefer original work.
12016-11-26 15:45:28 UTCtrigpoint I have fixed which you had dragged.
Cheers Phil

Are you Phil from the Get Walking project?

12016-11-28 18:49:37 UTCtrigpoint The user did not respond, but I was able to see the path on bing imagery and have added it

12016-11-26 19:41:32 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM.
It is helpful to other mappers if you keep changes to managable areas. Changes over an area this large are very difficult to follow.
Thanks Phil
12016-11-26 16:32:55 UTCtrigpoint Hi, is there really a toilet here?
It looks like a house on aerial imagery.
12016-11-26 16:09:28 UTCtrigpoint Hi, this should probably be tagged as a gallery rather than an artwork.
Cheers Phil
22016-11-26 16:32:09 UTCBCNorwich Agree, changed.
12016-11-26 16:05:34 UTCtrigpoint Hi, this would be better tagged as shop=farm, but probably doesn't offer that :)

12016-11-25 14:08:59 UTCtrigpoint Hi, changing Tesco Express from amenity=fuel to a shelter looks very odd to me. Is there a good reason for that?
Cheers Phil
22016-11-25 14:32:09 UTCBCNorwich Sorry, I wanted to add the feature/area as a shelter but failed to realise I was removing the fuel tag from amenity.
Looking at it again shelter doesn't seem right anyway. Now found building=canopy, perfect.
12016-11-25 13:48:02 UTCtrigpoint Hi, something has gone very wrong here. The A442, and Kidderminster are nowhere Llangollen. I am reverting this change.
22016-11-25 14:49:53 UTCJohn Grubb Well spotted! Heaven only knows what happened there - probably had that section selected and then, after a distraction of some sort, went and held down CTRL to pick other edits having panned the map to another area of interest. Oops...
12016-11-24 12:41:04 UTCtrigpoint Is this verifiable, i.e. if I walk down the street will I see a sign on the building and can customers visit to book an appointment?
22016-11-24 12:47:20 UTCptmaintenance We don't have a sign for our office. We book our customers via phone and email.
32016-11-24 13:08:03 UTCtrigpoint In that case there is nothing to map, OSM is not a business directory.
12016-11-23 18:32:10 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM. There is no need to fill the name tag with what is a description.
We can see it is a postbox from its amenity tag.

12016-11-21 12:52:54 UTCtrigpoint Hi, is this really a hotel? The name suggests self catering holiday cottages.

I am reverting this addition.

12016-11-17 17:13:49 UTCtrigpoint Hi, Berkley Mansions is already mapped as way, you have created a duplicate node in the middle of the road. I am removing this duplicate.

22016-11-18 00:25:10 UTCDr-Mx I've removed the node and added the postcode to the apartment building
12016-11-14 19:06:53 UTCtrigpoint Does the post office have an actual name?

32016-11-17 12:47:15 UTCtrigpoint Post Offices always have a name, it will either be Raphael Street Post Office or maybe Knightsbridge Post Office. There is no point just putting Post Office in the name, we can see that from the symbol. It does matter, when a card is left saying there is something to collect it will need to say whic...
12016-11-15 19:07:50 UTCtrigpoint Hi, I assume the numbers you are adding are housenumbers.
These should not be put in the name, they should be put in the addr:housnumber tag.

22016-11-15 19:51:19 UTCJC49 These are not quite house numbers as the buildings are massive concrete bunkers. They don't have addresses as such.

Cheers, Jan
22016-11-12 14:56:29 UTCtrigpoint That looks like a typo, it should be adopted=no.
32016-11-13 14:22:08 UTCPaul Berry My mistake; thanks for correcting it, @mueschel.
12016-11-12 13:33:19 UTCtrigpoint Does this ATM have an operator, it is also unusual not to be associated with either a bank or a shop.
12016-11-12 13:30:40 UTCtrigpoint I doubt the name is really McDonald's Restaurant with Drive Thru. We simply use the name McDonald's. If it has a drive through, then we map that as a way. You need to use a proper PC based editor to do that. McDonalds is normally considered fast_food rather than a restaurant.
Cheers Phil
12016-11-12 13:22:46 UTCtrigpoint Again, this is not how you spell Barclays and I seriously doubt any of these ATMs are genuine. Please could you explain what you are trying to achieve.
12016-11-11 15:42:08 UTCtrigpoint Hi, your edits in London look a bit odd. I somehow doubt that there is an ATM in The Palace of Westminster and that the London community could have missed 10 ATMs.
I suspect that these are personal markers.
Please learn to spell Barclays.
12016-11-11 13:49:28 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM. Does this clothes shop have a name and I imagine it is one of the buildings and not in the middle of the road?
12016-11-10 19:12:40 UTCtrigpoint This looks very odd, are you sure there is a post office here. It is mapped as a farm and that what it looks like on bing imagery?
12016-11-06 18:37:21 UTCBCNorwich Hello and welcome to OpenStreetMap.
Features added to the OSM database must be factual and verifiable on the ground by any one. So this POI looks like it is a fiction.
It is in fact a Post Box address and as such should be removed.
22016-11-08 18:57:56 UTCtrigpoint Should we not just remove the spam, and tag it as a postbox. The shop could probably use a post office node too?
32016-11-08 20:52:30 UTCBCNorwich Agreed that makes sense. My information came from a web search so I'm not free to transfer that positional data. If you're happy please make the change.
12016-11-04 23:02:57 UTCtrigpoint Tagging a driving test centre as a police staion seems very odd, it should be tagged as office=government.
You will need to use a proper editor to make this change, please ask if you need help.

12016-11-07 17:56:00 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM. Does this department store have a name?
12016-11-06 17:39:53 UTCtrigpoint If is a postbox, then it should be tagged amenity=postbox, there will be a ref on the plate. It will not have a postcode as it is not somewhere post is delivered to.
22016-11-06 17:49:12 UTCJim Thurston This is the postal address for The Maylands Mayl - The PostBox is where the mail is placed so that it doesn't get mixed up with the mail for the supermarket.
32016-11-06 18:27:47 UTCtrigpoint So is thete an office inside the supermarket building?
42016-11-06 18:47:20 UTCBCNorwich Hi, this is a Post Office Box presumably inside the post office not outside the building. From their website ( there is no office at the building.

Please remember OSM is a map not a business directory, please cut out the SPAM comments. By all means map the shops, but leave your self promotion to yourself.

12016-11-05 00:28:05 UTCtrigpoint Hi, I pass every day and cannot recall any signs legally prohibiting HGVs. What is the source of this, remember access tags are meant to indicate the legallity, if you wish to tag suitability then lanes=1 or width = 2m are the way to go.
22016-11-05 08:38:25 UTCMike Baggaley Hi, I split this way from way 39207901 and did not define any of the tags whilst adding the Shropshire Way relation to parts of it. You may wish to look at the adjoining parts of Isombridge Lane and remove the hgv tag from those as well. I am not local so don't know the restrictions on it.

32016-11-05 09:38:30 UTCtrigpoint Sorry, should have dug a bit deeper. I can see the tag has been on the original way since forever. I will investigate.

Cheers Phil

12016-11-03 18:36:22 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM.
This edit looks a little odd, the name indicates that these should be bicycle_hire but I am not sure about these. There are others mapped nearby and it is unlikely that such things would be missing from the map. Do you have any more information?
22016-11-04 07:21:27 UTCBCNorwich I don't think 4478909590 exists, but there is a dock round the corner on Greenland Road.
The other two I've tagged similar to other cycle hire stations. If Lui_E98 would like to look at these and use this type of tagging it would concur with how other stations are mapped.
32016-11-04 11:54:44 UTCtrigpoint I am not convinced any exist, discussion on irc suggested that they are personal markers of some sort. Cycle hire is not something our London mappers generally miss.
I was planning to revert, just seeing if I can get a response from the user.
42016-11-04 14:09:11 UTCBCNorwich Nodes 4478899792 and 4478899791 are listed at the mapped position on the website :-

In order to add such detail you need to split the building into sections. Maps,me isn't up to such a task, you will need to use an OSM editor on you PC.
