12017-08-09 09:48:29 UTCPlaneMad Hi, it looks like a small section of Berliner Ring is deleted, maybe by mistake?
22017-08-09 10:55:51 UTCMKnight reverted in
12017-08-03 09:15:50 UTCPlaneMad The tag for the u/c station nodes should also follow

22017-08-03 09:17:14 UTCPlaneMad disused=yes indicates this was already built and not in use.
32017-08-03 16:36:40 UTCdocaneesh so i should removed the disused tag?
12017-07-28 05:34:52 UTCChetan_Gowda Hi Akash Kumar burman, Ramanagar already exists on map. This is a town actually. City should be tagged for larger one, like Bengaluru. To add Kannada tag use "name:kn = *" For any help, please reply here. I'm happy to help.
22017-07-28 05:59:48 UTCAkash Kumar burman Ok Chetan.
32017-08-03 08:47:12 UTCPlaneMad Akash, the guidelines for naming in local language is here

The town already has a Kannada name

A Kannada map with this data is available here http://yogi...
12017-07-27 07:07:25 UTCOberaffe Dear Planemad,
do you have any information about the rerouting of the NH27? I couldnt find anything in he media nor in actual videos!
With best regards
22017-07-27 12:34:56 UTCPlaneMad Rerouted based on which mentions it is a NH, but specifically NH230.

Other NHs would also use this to bypass the city.
32017-07-27 13:24:29 UTCOberaffe OK thanks for the link. :-)
12017-07-19 11:29:23 UTCPlaneMad Thank you for your edits, but you introduced thousands of duplicate segments and nodes in your edit. Do look at the JOSM warnings before upload. Have cleaned up most of the data :)
22017-07-19 17:48:20 UTCbgdoo Thanks for cleaning up. computer froze and didn't know if they had been uploaded. I guess I got my answer!
12017-07-19 06:28:03 UTCPlaneMad Hi Tinkerbell, many thanks for contributing to OSM, but it seems like many of your fictional edits are not in line with the guidelines for Pokemon Go mapping which clearly state to only map what you see on the ground:

> do map things that exist on the ground. The map is used by pedestrians, p...
12017-07-18 17:07:56 UTCPlaneMad In India, the convention is to use trunk for National Highways. Is it ok to retag them?
12017-07-05 13:13:16 UTCPlaneMad Not sure if this change is needed since the trail seems to be primarily a bike trail that can also be used for walking.

The original tagging of `highway=cycleway` and `foot=yes` seems to be correct.
22017-07-06 12:27:03 UTCJLaLonde13 The main reason i created this change is because in Pokemon Go the Pokemon will not spawn on bike path, however if it is marked as a walking path then they are more commonly spawning along that path. As someone who walks and bikes the path frequently, i would enjoy it if some pokemon would spawn alo...
32017-07-06 20:08:57 UTCPlaneMad This map data is also used by several application that navigate bikers, and such a change would cause them not to be routed on this trail. It would be great if you can make the correction.

It may not be too hard to find actual footpaths/sidewalks that are missing on the map, you should add them.
12017-07-05 13:31:35 UTCPlaneMad Noticed that you removed the Stadium, has it been demolished?
22017-07-06 05:24:13 UTCHamish Kirkman Yes it was demolished about 2013
32017-07-06 07:09:54 UTCPlaneMad Thanks, found it on
12017-07-05 18:29:39 UTCPlaneMad Tubk86 thank you for your edits. It looks like you may need to fix the tags on all your address points. Please see the OSM wiki on how to add addresses.

If you continue adding this data with wrong tags, your contributions might have to be removed.
22017-07-05 18:30:41 UTCPlaneMad
32017-07-14 10:55:43 UTCTubk86 Thanks for your help. After reading the manual, i've understood how to choose right address tags. I'll change them to right tags as soon as possible.^^
12017-07-05 14:25:17 UTCPlaneMad Thank you for the edit. Is this motorway link really there?
22017-07-05 14:27:33 UTCPlaneMad According to this exit is proposed. I'm reverting this change.
12017-07-05 13:35:18 UTCPlaneMad Why was the cycleway deleted?
12017-07-05 06:12:40 UTCPlaneMad Thank you for your contributions. What is your source for the power lines? They don't seem to be visible in the satellite imagery.
12017-06-22 05:48:25 UTCPlaneMad Are all of the places actually cities? Town seems more appropriate for a place <100,000 inhabitants.
22017-06-26 22:51:30 UTCgeoffengland Metro Vancouver calls them cities and they are all separate cities in Metro Vancouver. The City of Port Moody calls itself City of Port Moody not Town of Port Moody.
12017-06-22 01:53:41 UTCPlaneMad Why is this a secondary road? Retagging it as a residential which seems more appropriate.
22017-06-22 05:56:50 UTCRhubarb Well spotted. Residential is probably the best tag for Liz Kernohan Drive (the parts you've changed anyway). However major parts of it are under construction, most of it (all of it?) currently is / will be quite a large segregated road. Chances are Liz Kernohan Drive has had more construction since ...
12017-06-14 05:24:34 UTCPlaneMad Hi Jem, you have once again downgraded a national highway which should be a `trunk` road to a primary road. Can you please explain your reason to do this?
12017-06-07 10:57:41 UTCPlaneMad Awesome, thanks for adding these!
12017-06-05 07:32:06 UTCPlaneMad Thank you for taking the effort to improve this!
12017-05-25 05:45:54 UTCPlaneMad Thanks for your edits! noticed that you tagged Ellenton as a city which is incorrect, have fixed this :)
12017-05-25 03:40:58 UTCPlaneMad Many of these roads do not look like access controlled motorways, they should likely be trunk or primary depending on the local classification
12017-05-22 19:29:54 UTCPlaneMad Thanks for adding the building heights! Were they supposed to be in metres? A height of 504m for a 25 floor building seems incorrect
12017-05-22 09:48:45 UTCPlaneMad Any reason you removed the existing translation and changed the classification of this trunk road?
12017-05-22 06:46:08 UTCPlaneMad Hi and welcome to OSM. It looks like you have converted the main roads in Islamabad to a footpath. Could you correct it, thanks!
12017-05-21 15:39:46 UTCPlaneMad Noticed that you tagged quite a few places in the western province as cities even though their population is under 100,000 which is accepted as the standard to be a city. Let me know if it is ok to tag them back as a town?
12017-05-21 15:07:48 UTCPlaneMad Jem, many thanks for all your contribution. It seems like you use the primary tag for all the roads which is incorrect. Primary roads are the major roads connecting cities and towns at the level next to a national highway. Making fixes to many of these roads.
12017-05-20 18:24:33 UTCPlaneMad You might have mistakenly changed a railway line to a road in this change, have fixed it
12017-05-20 17:47:06 UTCPlaneMad Hi Jem, wondering why you have been removing the road names and changing the classification of national highways? They should be trunk and not primary.
12017-05-19 06:18:51 UTCPlaneMad Amazing work mapping in Chandrapur!
12017-05-13 07:34:09 UTCPlaneMad Theres some amazing new imagery from DigitalGlobe that has coverage for all the missing areas!
22017-05-22 21:08:13 UTCkeithonearth Thanks for letting me know. I just took a quick look, and the DigitalGlobe imagery looks great! I'll have to spend a bit more time looking over the area.

The improved Bing imagery didn't come out very long ago (was that 6 months ago?), so I'd think there's *lots* of room for improving some basic...
12017-05-03 06:22:18 UTCPlaneMad Hi, you have created wrong city point for yadong county

The correct one is
12017-04-27 10:03:18 UTCPlaneMad Nice work with all the details!
12017-04-26 10:29:56 UTCPlaneMad Nice work adding the bus stops!
12017-04-18 07:28:11 UTCPlaneMad Great work adding all the details!
12017-04-18 07:21:20 UTCPlaneMad Nice edits. Have made a lot of updates and fixed some tags, please check if its ok.

There are still many untagged roads you have added, you can add a `residential` tag to them.
22017-04-18 07:45:22 UTCBhojaraj Yes thank you for your suggestion and I am tagging those untagged roads now.
12017-04-18 05:49:51 UTCPlaneMad Nice work here, have added more details to the campus!
12017-04-17 07:54:04 UTCJothirnadh Hello evt35,

Thanks for your contribution to OpenStreetMap. I came across your changeset and found that you are using much updated imagery source than BING or mapbox for mapping. If possible can you help me in understanding what this imagery source is and is it legal to use this source to map. W...
22017-04-17 11:42:53 UTCPlaneMad The imagery source is documented here
32017-04-17 11:50:58 UTCevt35 Hi,
For me (and because i live around this area, main updated information are extracted from "cadastre" map and IGN map ({zoom}/{x}/{y}.jpg). SOurces are legal (FR-Cadastre is a legal map pubished by french administration and automatically added ...
42017-04-17 12:39:32 UTCJothirnadh Thanks for the information. Really helpful.
12017-04-17 06:47:05 UTCPlaneMad Your edits are amazingly detailed :O
22017-04-20 09:58:30 UTCchachafish Thanks. I do my best ;)
12017-04-11 13:46:49 UTCPlaneMad Very impressed with your work. Have you considered using JOSM? It can be much more convenient and easy for making large edits. These guides might help
12017-04-11 05:35:00 UTCPlaneMad Thank you for adding the missing Wikidata links!
12017-04-05 11:27:09 UTCPlaneMad Nice work! Are you surveying these roads by foot?
22017-04-05 11:39:45 UTCpreethamrk Thanks PlaneMad. Good to see commits are being reviewed. Yes I have.
12017-04-03 07:20:15 UTCPlaneMad Welcome to OSM! It looks like the foot overbridge and connection to the station already exits. I'm correcting the duplicates if its ok.
12017-04-01 06:24:26 UTCSrihari Thalla Way is a railway yard. The same one as Probably landuse=railway suits better?
22017-04-01 11:26:56 UTCPlaneMad Done
32017-04-01 12:25:56 UTCSrihari Thalla (Y)
12017-03-31 20:31:31 UTCPlaneMad Beautiful work, thank you for adding these!
12017-03-31 12:23:41 UTCPlaneMad Hi, this was infact the bus stop for the railway station. Have fixed it back now with some more details.
12017-03-31 09:11:52 UTCSrihari Thalla Sweet :) Thanks!
22017-03-31 09:13:35 UTCPlaneMad \\m/
12017-03-31 06:37:18 UTCPlaneMad You had tagged the ferry as a road, fixed it now.
12017-03-31 06:32:22 UTCPlaneMad Hi, are you sure these post office locations are correct? There is one named as swimming pool.
12017-03-31 05:08:21 UTCPlaneMad Hi Arshy, welcome to OSM. This is a live map seen by millions of users. Please don't use it for testing, i'm reverting your edits.
12017-03-30 04:49:40 UTCPlaneMad Thanks for adding the admin levels!
22017-03-30 05:21:09 UTCIndia Map Team @PlaneMad. Please note that this is an initial start towards adding the admin boundaries. The boundaries are not accurate and I am hoping that the community will help refine these.
32017-03-30 05:30:52 UTCPlaneMad Looking forward to it, you should announce the plan on the talk-in list to get others involved.
12017-03-30 04:45:21 UTCPlaneMad This is amazing work!
22017-03-30 17:00:33 UTCkadalcalypse Thanks! It's quite easy actually.

I'll write a diary entry.
12017-03-28 13:05:24 UTCPlaneMad Welcome to OSM :) Have fixed some tags for you here to render the apartment correctly.
12017-03-27 05:49:08 UTCPlaneMad Hi, welcome to OSM. Have removed the duplicate station you added for Cite. It already exists!
22017-03-27 12:09:29 UTCzevbn OK. What about the correct icon? The rectangle is not useful
32017-03-27 12:13:33 UTCPlaneMad The default OSM rendering style is limited to a blue square. For custom icons check one of the Mapbox Styles:
12017-03-27 06:46:17 UTCPlaneMad Hi, why was the name:ru label removed from the town?
12017-03-27 05:15:33 UTCPlaneMad Hi Welcome to OSM! It looks like you have deleted some important features from the map , I have fixed them now. OSM is a collaborative project by thousands of users in your area to make a map, please try to contribute positively, thank you.
12017-03-24 11:56:38 UTCPlaneMad Welcome to OSM! James town is too small to be a city, have reversed the change.
22017-03-24 16:47:35 UTCProud Salopian Hi - it's too small in one sense of the term "city" however this is a British territory the same 'city status' law applies as in the UK. James Town is a City officially. I made the change mainly to ensure that it appears on the map with primacy over neighbouring Half Tree Hollow, as James ...
32017-03-24 17:58:33 UTCPlaneMad Have added a capital=2 to associate is a territory capital. This should give it preference on the map.
42017-03-24 20:59:46 UTCProud Salopian Thanks.
12017-03-24 11:29:22 UTCPlaneMad Thanks for your change, you can also add the wikipedia article for a place, like `wikipedia=en:Khorgas`
12017-03-24 10:21:53 UTCPlaneMad Looks like a place point for the town already exists. Deleting this one :)
12017-03-24 09:55:56 UTCPlaneMad Wikipedia says Reading is a town. Any reason you changed it to a city?
22017-04-10 05:19:51 UTCPeng-Chung Thanks for this PlaneMad! It was a mistake actually. I will fix this...
12017-03-24 06:51:25 UTCPlaneMad Hi Pablo, thank you for the edits. Some of the features are missing tags to allow it to render.
12017-03-24 06:39:07 UTCPlaneMad Hi, welcome to OSM! Many of the buildings don't line up very well with the imagery, can you please check this again?
12017-03-24 06:29:19 UTCPlaneMad Hi and welcome to OSM. Nice work on buildings, if you can correct any overlapping buildings that would be great!
12017-03-24 06:21:14 UTCPlaneMad Welcome to OSM. Nice edits! Some of the names needs better capitalization bird pond -> Bird Pond.
12017-03-23 15:29:02 UTCPlaneMad Hi, it looks like you have a broken changeset where you are only uploading nodes, but not the actual buildings. Please check!
12017-03-23 10:56:19 UTCPlaneMad Welcome to OSM! The natural=water tag is used for water areas and not lines. Details:

Removing the property from Rio Grande.
12017-03-23 09:37:13 UTCPlaneMad Hi boundary=national_park is the correct tag to use

Undoing your change since the park is now off the map :)
12017-03-23 08:10:08 UTCPlaneMad Welcome to OSM! It looks like you deleted a lot of useful information on the map . This might have been a mistake, so I am correcting it. If you need help improving the map please let me know. Thank you :)

22017-03-30 19:16:07 UTCcolargol En complément des remarques de PlaneMad j'ajouterai que vous pouvez rentrer en contact avec des membres de la communauté osm de la région Toulousaine en vous inscrivant sur la liste de diffusion mentionnée sur cette page
12017-03-23 07:16:34 UTCPlaneMad Hi, you seem to be incorrectly converting roads to footpath. Its fixed now, please be careful.
12017-03-23 05:47:54 UTCPlaneMad Hi, you have deleted the lot for walmart and added and added the broadcasting station with incorrect tags with no proper source. I'm reverting this change for now, if this was done in error please let me know.
12017-03-22 09:38:39 UTCPlaneMad Hi, why did you remove the German and French translation of this place?
12017-03-21 12:29:37 UTCPlaneMad Hi, you have renamed various streets to German in the `name` tag. This is wrong and needs to be fixed. Please add any German names in the `name:de` tag.
22017-03-21 12:34:23 UTCPlaneMad Why was the English name removed and Rushan renamed to Prinz-Heinrich-Burg? This does not look correct
12017-03-21 12:24:28 UTCPlaneMad Hi, you just accidentally renamed Harare on the map. Have fixed it now!
12017-03-21 10:14:41 UTCPlaneMad Why was the highway tagged as residential?

12017-03-02 11:57:10 UTCPlaneMad Hi Sushma, noticed that you added the shiva temple at NAL in the wrong location. Have made the correction based on knowledge of my relative.

How did you locate this temple?
12017-03-02 06:53:47 UTCPlaneMad Just retagged Himatnagar place node as a town based on population status
12017-02-24 10:05:27 UTCPlaneMad Hi, noticed you are changing the classification of overpass roads to motorway. Is this correct?
12017-02-22 08:37:22 UTCPlaneMad The Wiki ids have been incorrectly added to the individual ways instead of the boundary object.
22017-02-26 02:50:14 UTCaimomap oh... sorry for the delayed reply... will correct em asap
12017-02-20 09:44:34 UTCnaveenpf This edit is wrong..we have to add qid to district boundary
22017-02-22 08:09:17 UTCPlaneMad Yes, the wiki ids of districts have incorrectly been added to the city or town features.

Full list of incorrect edits is here
32017-02-26 04:36:41 UTCaimomap yeah.... realized the confusion... silly and dumb edits... now i think they have been corrected... thanks for the feedback folks...
12017-02-21 12:22:14 UTCPlaneMad Thanks for the edit, but looks like you added the Wiki page for the district to the city object.

Unfortunately the boundary for the district does not seem to be on OSM, so will need to be added first. In the meantime please remove the incorrect link.
12017-02-21 08:40:44 UTCPlaneMad Dropping in to say fantastic work! Just saw your name as the top mapper in the country!
12017-02-20 14:28:37 UTCPlaneMad Welcome to OSM and thanks for your contributions ninjaslayer461.

Adding incorrect information is not fair to the others in your area who are making positive contributions to make this a highly useful resource for the benefit of others.

It would be great if you could fix your edits to accuratel...
22017-05-10 20:02:33 UTCuser_5359 I hvae revert your changeset!
12017-02-20 11:54:55 UTCPlaneMad Thanks for the edits here, i live in the area so happy to help :)
22017-02-20 11:57:55 UTCiambibhas @planemad I live here too. :)
32017-02-20 11:59:43 UTCiambibhas And I was wondering why this area has so much details. Your comment answers it. :D
42017-02-20 12:28:22 UTCPlaneMad lets meet for juice at beri-to sometime this week :D

12017-02-20 09:39:41 UTCPlaneMad Welcome to OSM, and thanks for your edit :)
12017-02-14 09:36:46 UTCPlaneMad Welcome to OSM, and nice work on improving the Mumbai data :)
12017-02-09 06:31:01 UTCPlaneMad Not sure if it is appropriate to mark as a place of worship on a public map. This should rather be tagged as a residential address?

22017-02-09 06:39:42 UTCPlaneMad Have retagged it as a residential house name for now.
12016-12-13 08:06:29 UTCPlaneMad Nice work!
12016-12-12 21:29:45 UTCindigomc Are there really 5 bus stops here next to each other?
22016-12-13 03:11:26 UTCPlaneMad Yup, there are 5 bus shelters
12016-12-10 18:47:16 UTCPlaneMad Nice work with all the mapping in Maharashtra!
12016-12-07 15:30:28 UTCSrihari Thalla Hi, Arun! Node 1598973198 (Nellore city) is not called "Potti Sriramulu Jilla". Let me know, I'll remove it. I've added respective alt_names for the district Relation 2022291.

Nellore node -

22016-12-07 15:57:09 UTCPlaneMad Please change it :) It seems to have been added by a previous mapper. Awesome work on the relations!
32016-12-08 05:33:58 UTCSrihari Thalla Thanks, Arun ;)
12016-11-23 20:57:21 UTCPlaneMad So awesome, congrats on your first edit on the open map of the world!

This activity can be quite addictive if you start trying to map all of these

Have aded a few more roads that I could make out. Also visit the Asansol station for updates :)
12016-11-23 02:39:01 UTCPlaneMad Nice work adding the bay numbers. Have just retagged them to the more appropriate `aeroway=parking_position`
12016-11-19 18:09:39 UTCPlaneMad H, you have added over 100 villages with name=村庄

Is this correct?
12016-11-17 09:44:20 UTCPlaneMad There is a duplicate place here
12016-11-16 04:01:44 UTCnammala Hi GidonW,

Welcome and thanks for contributing to OpenStreetMap. Observed that you have adding `curve_geometry` tags to the highways for the node, It is not good way of tagging unless and until there is a mark . So please don't add these tags.

22016-11-16 13:17:42 UTCGidonW Hi,
I'd like to explain these tags -
I work for a company named Via, a ride-sharing transportation company.
We use OSM as one of our map data sources in order to navigate in areas
where we operate. One of the tags we use internally is "curve_geometry"
which allows us to identif...
32016-11-17 05:43:31 UTCnammala Hi GidonW,

Thanks for getting back. I really like the work you do using OSM. But the tagging system you have been following is inappropriate and that data should be on OpenStreetMap. Making OSM the best should be our motto. Hope you will stop tagging them.
Let me know if you need anything.

42016-11-17 05:52:26 UTCnammala Oops!! the data should not be on OpenStreetMap.
52016-11-17 05:59:16 UTCPlaneMad GidonW, there is nothing wrong with adding your own tags, but if its not discussed or documented, there is a high chance other mappers may remove them as being non useful. Maybe as a start, you could write a diary post explaining your rationale behind the tag and why it is useful to be on OSM.
12016-11-16 05:52:03 UTCPlaneMad Hi it seems like you have removed the highway number R201 from the road. Also do read on choosing the correct tags for the roads
12016-11-13 19:11:08 UTCPlaneMad Hello, and welcome to OSM :)

The `operator=India Post` tag might be relevant here.
12016-10-26 12:49:32 UTCzeromap The wikidata tag you added refers to the administrative division and is already present on this relation.

Tagging towns as points was done from a TIGER import, before boundary data was available. To make things more confusing, the point location refe...
22016-10-27 09:48:38 UTCmanoharuss @zeromap Thanks for keeping an eye out. The point location from satellite imagery does seem like a hamlet as in small number of buildings around the intersection along the roads. Do you think it would be a good idea to tag the point as a hamlet and remove the wikidata tag I added?

32016-10-27 12:21:24 UTCzeromap Yes, but this problem is more widespread. There are many town administrative divisions mapped as nodes, at least in New York State.

Yes, I believe so.

Hard to say, but I noticed they are more common among towns without eponymous larger settlements. Consider this map of Onondaga C...
12016-11-03 07:15:57 UTCPlaneMad Amazing work here. I've removed some duplicate streets and made some improvements near the station, please check
12016-10-29 07:39:33 UTCPlaneMad Made some corrections by merging with the duplicate ways. Thanks.
12016-10-28 13:15:39 UTCSomeoneElse I see you've added the wikidata tag to the Hucknall node here (and in case you were wondering, of the two Hucknalls / former Hucknalls in Notts, you got the right one).

However I notice from that this seems to be part of a much l...
22016-10-28 20:25:38 UTCPlaneMad Hi Andy, as outlined in the Github ticket, every addition of Wikidata tag is manually reviewed by checking the location and context on both OSM and WIkidata before it is added.

This is a carefully scoped effort only for cities and towns where it is possible to match the Wikidata item with a very ...
12016-10-28 08:55:14 UTCPlaneMad Hi, noticed that the Kecamatans have been tagged as place=city which may not be an appropriate tag as they don't indicate an urban area. Is there a more appropriate tag for them in Indonesia?
12016-09-23 05:04:49 UTCkeithonearth I'm sorry to do this again, but I've not gotten any clarification on why you're adding Thai language name (and name:hi) tags to places in India, so I've reverted this edit.

I can't say definitively that any of these tags are inaccurate, but that camp-site looks pretty unlikely in the Bing imager...
22016-10-07 15:38:53 UTCPlaneMad Keith, thanks for looking into the edits, there's a block on the user now to force them to read the messages. Is there still some cleanup to do?
32016-10-11 18:26:44 UTCkeithonearth I reverted their edits as I came across nodes with Thai names. I was not methodical in making sure I got all of this users edits fixed, so I would think that there is still clean up to do.

Thanks for the heads-up about the user being blocked, I'm glad to hear that happened.
42016-10-11 18:47:36 UTCSomeoneElse Just to be clear, the block isn't to stop them editing, it's to alert them to the fact that they're editing a shared map :)
Hopefully they'll read the message and engage with other mappers. Unfortunately MAPS.ME doesn't make this very clear (and it's more complicated here because their phone langua...
52016-10-12 19:17:27 UTCkeithonearth Hi SomeoneElse. I have a hard time believing these edits are not vandalism. Did you see my edit ( that removed one of their caravan sites that had been placed in the middle of an airport taxiway?

While I did not survey that location in person, it...
62016-10-12 19:39:30 UTCSomeoneElse Well, until they login to the site to clear the message they're still not able to edit the map. Whether you'd call this "vandalism" rather depends on whether they realise they're actually updating a shared map at all.
72016-10-24 17:12:40 UTCindigomc Having put the Thai content into a dictionary, they seem to represent things of interest for travellers, e.g. cafe's, viewpoints, et.c..

Noticed that you deleted all the shops in Phoenix market city that was added with a lot of hard work by another mapper.

I'm going to restore the shops, but please make sure you are more careful in the future.

12016-09-14 15:08:59 UTCPlaneMad Jaisen, was trying to convert the village boundaries to relations and noticed that the panchayat boundaries don't neatly align with the ward boundaries:

Is this expected?
22016-09-14 15:50:31 UTCjaisuvyas Yes, I know that. And we came to know about it, soon after the mapping party exercise. Panchayat boundaries are not correct, along the unsurveyed / partially surveyed tracts of western ghat in Kerala. And I have initiated a move to solve it (for the Koorachundu village panchayat), consulting with th...
32016-09-15 04:22:35 UTCPlaneMad Make sense. But it looks like the ward boundaries are close to accurate? If so can we start converting them into relations?
42016-09-15 07:24:05 UTCjaisuvyas Inner limits of ward boundaries are close to accurate. But outer limits are unlikely. The volunteers who mapped the area couldn't go through dense forest areas and through difficult hilly terrains (areas surrounding the village panchayat). When I prepared the hard copy map, I had to manually adjust ...

22016-08-31 17:27:38 UTCPlaneMad Hi Nakaner, could you please be more clear with what the issue is with the changeset? Was the multipolygon not fixed?
32016-08-31 18:26:57 UTCNakaner Hi PlaneMad,

you fixed the multipoygon which was broken. That's the good thing. Thank you.

Unfortunately, you did not have a look at the history of this relation. That's a problem you share with your workmates. If you had took a look at it, you would have found that it is part of an broken imp...
42016-08-31 18:32:17 UTCmikelmaron Whatever the situation on the map, whomever is in a conversation, saying things like "blind and stupid as a bot" is completely uncalled for.

I would suggest adding it as an address instead by clicking on the building and entering the number. Happy to help if you are stuck :)
12016-07-27 14:33:00 UTCPlaneMad Nice work with the mapping. Did some cleanup with tags and improved the geometries in the central area. Do check if its ok. Thanks!
12016-07-17 12:26:18 UTCPlaneMad This is amazing, nice work!
12016-07-14 10:47:58 UTCPlaneMad Very cool to see school information from rural areas, are you traveling here?
22016-07-14 11:27:32 UTCasdofindia @PlaneMad, yes. Actually, I was visiting all these kindergartens as a part of my internship (doing health checkup for kids). It's going to be pretty useful for people who come after me to spot these places also now.
32016-07-14 12:03:53 UTCPlaneMad Thats amazing, would love to hear more about what you are doing. Maybe you could share your experience on the diary?

Thanks for the idea! My first diary entry. Any feedback is welcome.
12016-07-08 16:57:39 UTCPlaneMad Hi, you have changed the name of the village from 'Čachnov' to '2'. Looks like a mistake, if you want, I can help revert back to the original name.
22016-07-08 21:48:37 UTCMiroslav Peška Hi, you are right, I accidentally renamed the place instead of just my bookmark. Thank you for letting me know, it's now back to the original (correct) name.

42016-07-04 17:34:24 UTCramyaragupathy Hi @Toyota Nexus7, your point on Brussels holds good. However in India, the general agreement is to use English names for name key and have a separate tag for Indic languages. Related reading
52016-07-05 05:44:53 UTCPlaneMad Its perfectly ok to have multilingual names in the `name` tag but goes against the convention we have been following in India till now for simplicity. Please join the discussion on the talk-in mailing list to discuss why you think this is a good idea.

22016-06-23 15:02:11 UTCcomrad Okay, dann die Änderungen bitte ignorieren und ich setze die Zugangsbeschränkung.
32016-06-23 16:19:31 UTChighflyer74 Hi! Danke für die schnelle Antwort. Ignorieren ist nur die zweitbeste Idee, da die Wege in der Database gelöscht sind. Warte bitte kurz ab, ich melde mich noch einmal, nachdem die Wege wieder hergestellt sind. Danach kannst Du dann access=* dranhängen. Danke!

12016-05-25 02:41:52 UTCAlan Hi PlaneMad, this boundary=claim tag is interesting, but I don't see it documented anywhere. Can you point me to any more information about this tag?
22016-05-25 03:42:42 UTCPlaneMad It was more of a trial without disturbing any existing tags for custom rendering I was doing with tilemill. Its not documented anywhere, but if you think it makes broader sense, I think I'll start a wiki proposal for this.
32016-05-25 03:51:28 UTCAlan I think it does make a lot of sense... but this is my first time trying to understand the complexity of disputed boundaries in OSM. It seems like boundary=claim is useful, and less complicated than some of the other options.
12016-05-24 06:39:13 UTCPlaneMad Why is the name of the airport "Make Up Baggage"? This looks like a mistake.

12016-04-13 06:47:03 UTCPlaneMad Welcome to OSM! The road looked more like a district road rather than a state highway. Have tagged it `tertiary`
12016-04-07 07:56:54 UTCPlaneMad Made a bunch of fixes and updates at UAS. Fixed the road classifications, removed overlapping roads, improved the connections, added details to the playgrounds. Please check if it looks ok.

12016-03-08 05:31:16 UTCPlaneMad Nice work! Noticed some disconnected junctions and fixed them.
22016-03-08 05:31:38 UTCPlaneMad You should update the map data in JOSM to avoid any conflict.
32016-03-16 12:56:30 UTCSM@Edit Thanks. I will check properly and update. In the recent edits I made sure that all the junctions are connected.
12016-03-03 06:15:06 UTCPlaneMad Do the signs still say NH-206? The NHs have officially been renumbered

12016-02-24 23:12:14 UTCSomeoneElse For info the change to looks a bit iffy; I've added so that hopefully it'll get a proper survey.

12016-02-17 05:57:31 UTCPlaneMad Hi, thanks for your edits. I noticed you are an expert mapper and using iD. You should try out JOSM so that making large number of edits is much easier.

Take a look at this guide to JOSM
12016-02-10 10:08:19 UTCPlaneMad Nice edits here! Have made some improvements in the area like adding the sector names as neighborhoods based on the addresses you added. Can you verify if they are correct?
22016-02-10 10:28:30 UTCPlaneMad If you are interested to know how the highway tagging scheme in OSM works, check out
32016-02-12 13:52:44 UTCpavanvijjapu Sector 5 and 8 are correct. Sector 4 is actually sector 3
42016-02-14 05:41:15 UTCpavanvijjapu I studied the guidelines of Highway tagging, I have a doubt in this regard, the guidelines state that NH should not be used to refer highways within the city, so does it mean that the NH 16 beside Sector 4 MVP should be renamed?
52016-02-16 19:04:51 UTCPlaneMad Usually NH's would bypass the city, but looks like in Vizags case this is correct. Or have they made a bypass? in which case the trunk route should be rerouted through that.
62016-02-21 15:59:16 UTCpavanvijjapu There is bypass but not a prominent one. Its a two lane road and not termed as national highway for now though there are plans to make it a six lane road. For now I suppose its better to leave it as mentioned.
12016-02-14 07:21:02 UTCBCNorwich Hi, There are now two outlines for the park, and one outline duplicates itself by going round twice. so in fact three circuits of the park in total. May I also suggest that the park does not extend to the center line of the surrounding roads and that it should be mapped to it's physical boundary. Re...
22016-02-15 07:32:09 UTCPlaneMad Poornima, I have removed the duplicate park, please check if it looks ok.
32016-02-15 14:09:37 UTCpoornibadrinath Thank you so much :) I will look into it :)
12016-02-12 07:14:09 UTCPlaneMad Thanks for reverting. Curious to know how you detected the vandalism?

PS: I am curious too, why you are so curios? You are an experienced user if i must take in consideration the number of your edits...
32016-02-12 07:46:12 UTCPlaneMad Thanks. I have been looking into automatic flagging of changesets with vandalism using osmcha. We have a test instance running if you would like to try:

Found your changeset by looking up changes with the comment 'vandal' ;)
12016-02-12 07:23:00 UTCPlaneMad Thank you for fixing the vandalism. Can you share the changeset of the vandalism that you fixed?
22016-02-12 07:35:44 UTCopendcc Just look in the history of Birkenstraße and Lindenstraße. These streets were deleted and redrawed, but without any connections to other streets.
12016-02-10 08:24:33 UTCPlaneMad Wow, fantastic work :D

Had done a lot of the initial mapping around Gokarna village during a visit many years ago. Are you there now?
22016-02-11 16:14:13 UTCPapayaved No, now i am in my country. I was in Gokarna 3 times. Nice place in India
32016-02-11 17:24:20 UTCPlaneMad Gokarna has a special role in Indian mythology. One can feel the different culture of the people in such places. Glad that you had a good time :)
12016-02-10 12:40:13 UTCPlaneMad Wow, some detailed buildings!
22016-02-11 04:03:46 UTCRishikesh Kulkarni Thank you :)
32016-02-11 06:48:35 UTCPlaneMad Have you tried mapping your hometown yet? Its a lot more fun when you know the place well :)
12016-02-10 11:58:30 UTCPlaneMad Nice work with the landuse. Is this based on the detailed development plan from CMDA?
22016-02-10 15:42:12 UTCTriangle37 Thank you!
Yes it is based on CMDA dataset.
12016-02-10 11:57:07 UTCPlaneMad Wow, thanks for adding all the beaches. Are you in Goa?
12016-02-09 13:32:37 UTCPlaneMad The building is actually Prestige Nebula, and the consulate is just a small office space on the first floor. Don't think we should be tagging the building name as the consulate.
22016-02-10 05:29:15 UTCAshvini Kumar In that case, you are right. will change.
12016-02-09 03:37:19 UTCPlaneMad Thank you for contributing in India :)
12016-02-08 07:14:29 UTCPlaneMad Looks amazing, great edits!

22016-02-06 12:46:48 UTCIndrayudh Roy Thanks :)
12016-02-05 08:55:12 UTCPlaneMad Thanks for your edits :)

You should also add changeset comments, to let others know what you edited.

12016-01-26 13:30:01 UTCPlaneMad Wow, are you traveling here? I traced some more details, please check.
22016-01-26 13:57:24 UTCAshvini Kumar Yes, traveling :-)
Thanks, added few more details..
12016-01-26 11:39:27 UTCPlaneMad Nice work on the edits here. Have added some more detail at the SDAT grounds. Can you please check if they are correct.
12016-01-25 14:31:06 UTCPlaneMad These edits are amazing. Were they really by class 4 students? Would love to know more.

Did some cleanup here, mostly retagging of some internal roads as service and ungluing some areas from roads. Do check and let me know if its ok.
22015-12-30 05:31:02 UTCsamit_53 All the changes made by you are correct. Thank you for the changes.
12015-10-30 10:50:15 UTCGerdP please review way 209561034:
the tag highway=median is rarely used,
it seems to mean the same as highway=centreline, which is currently discussed as well, see
22015-10-30 10:51:06 UTCGerdP please check also barrier=median
on way 209561046

12015-07-08 19:44:53 UTCcalfarome Hi PlaneMad, there are many duplicate nodes in this area:
22015-12-21 10:48:33 UTCPlaneMad Thanks, fixed here
12015-12-14 10:06:37 UTCPlaneMad Still seeing issues. For instance should be `left|||` as there are no through markings on the other lanes.
12015-12-11 19:12:42 UTCPlaneMad You need to be more careful with changeset comments.
22015-12-12 10:49:12 UTCJothirnadh Okay... I will be careful with that next time. Thanks for reminding me Planemad.
12015-12-11 16:30:43 UTCPlaneMad The turn lanes on this way looks incorrect:

Can you check?
22015-12-11 16:30:57 UTCPlaneMad Also check the other roads around this intersection.
32015-12-11 19:10:02 UTCPlaneMad Also your changeset comments don't match the edits.
42015-12-14 07:02:43 UTCsaikabhi Thank you for the feedback. Have made the required changes.
12015-12-11 16:09:12 UTCPlaneMad Turn lanes on this way looks incorrect:

22015-12-14 07:25:48 UTCsaikabhi Thank you for the feedback. Can you take a look at the changes made.
12015-12-08 18:12:36 UTCSomeoneElse B&M Bargains or B&M Homestore? They've got (at least) two brands in the UK.
22015-12-08 20:29:52 UTCPlaneMad The official listing of the address is a Homestore with Garden Centre.'s%20Lodge%2C%20Milton%20Keynes%2C%20UK&locationid=35839940-2839-11E2-B468A4BADB4726BE&region=UK
12015-12-05 14:40:51 UTCPlaneMad Uzma, looks like you changed the name by mistake of Kurla Terminus. Corrected it, thanks.
12015-11-19 18:22:16 UTCPlaneMad The note mentioned `temporarily converted to two-way due to Central Subway construction` which was the reason to remove the oneway. Do check the other ways in the area as they might now be accessible if the construction is complete.
22015-11-19 23:17:44 UTCrichlv ah, thanks for the info. that change has been reversed by now and should be reflected in the map then. unfortunately, won't be able to survey this region anytime soon, will have to involve locals :)
12015-10-28 15:12:33 UTCmfuji Please don't break our data!

You have deleted the SECONDARY roads #335726311 and #313944874 by merging into a different TERTIARY road #376538841.
But they are roads in different class and they are unknown from imagery. Then we have lost many informations tagged in these roads, including informat...
22015-11-13 12:08:15 UTCPlaneMad Thank you mfufi was detecting this. abel, can you explain why these roads were merged?
32015-11-13 12:09:21 UTCPlaneMad Also thanks for fixing the issues mfuji, please report if you found any other incorrect merging, will have the changeset reverted.
42015-11-16 15:12:54 UTCabel801 Thanks mfuji for fixing my errors and I will take into account your suggestions.

12015-11-06 09:10:49 UTCkeithonearth I don't know if anyone reads the notes here, but my edit summary was wrong, as I forgot to update it after my previous summary.

This time I was, in fact, adding farmland and wooded areas.
22015-11-06 13:56:47 UTCPlaneMad Wow, Leh looks amazing! Thanks for all the mapping! :D
32015-11-09 09:21:02 UTCkeithonearth Thanks for the complement PlaneMad! I appreciate it very much, especially coming from a professional like you.
12015-11-06 11:08:12 UTCPlaneMad Habib, thank you for contributing to OSM. Can you explain why you changed the name of Riyadh to persian Gulf in Arabic?

I'm reverting your change, please don't add wrong information to the map.
12015-10-31 09:55:05 UTCGerdP please review:
the tag highway=divider is only used by you (7 times)
Is it a barrier=line or maybe barrier=kerb?
Sample: way 207489502
22015-11-04 19:11:42 UTCPlaneMad Thanks, have retagged them to barrier=kerb
32015-11-04 19:14:07 UTCGerdP thanks for that and for the feedback
42015-11-05 15:08:52 UTCGerdP Do you think that this might also match here?
12015-10-26 11:06:58 UTCMediatinker Hey, you made Sushiya a lot bigger that it really is. :-)
22015-10-26 11:13:19 UTCPlaneMad Sorry about that, it was a case of lazy hands. Will be more careful from now on, thanks :)
12015-10-06 06:05:21 UTCPlaneMad Hey Anil, so good to see you editing here. Just gave Porabandar a facelift a week ago.
12015-09-24 06:16:03 UTCPlaneMad Hi Andrew, welcome to OpenStreetMap and thank you for contributing. Many of your edits have name changes to 'Andrew Taylor' or similar family names. These includes names of towns, streets, buildings and even footpaths.

Can you provide a source for these changes and your reasoning to modify them? ...

12015-09-14 06:31:52 UTCPlaneMad From it looks like much of the old elevated expressway has been turned down and is being reconstructed as a boulevard. I'm retagging this as a primary road, but cant find references for the construction being complete.

Do you know if this...
22015-09-14 21:14:30 UTCa6y I do not know - I don't live in the area, and these changes were based on an article I read about the new route being completed (but I don't know about the boulevard).
32015-09-14 21:18:15 UTCa6y Also, the ones you tagged as primary are actually the new route (which is open), and should be tagged as motorway. The old route is to the south, and is listed as the I-40 motorway. This route is the one that should be marked as a boulevard.
42015-09-15 02:14:23 UTCPlaneMad You can check the articles again, it all mentions the new alignment as being a few blocks south of the old one. This is also mentioned on this map as existing I40

The new motorway alignment has been open ...

12015-08-17 14:02:32 UTCSomeoneElse Hi Arun - are you sure that is really an unclassified road? It doesn't particularly look like one from the imagery. What I suspect it is is a farm track with a "public right of way" over it (given that someone's named in "leeds country way...
22015-08-17 17:04:17 UTCPlaneMad The section leads only to the Airport service road apart from the couple of properties and the footpath branching out. There are no ways that branch into farms to suggest this is primarily for agricultural use.

32015-08-17 18:08:22 UTCSK53 First dont rely on the wiki "tracks are for agricultural use". This may be applicable in Germany.

42015-08-17 18:22:24 UTCPlaneMad > For instance many railway lines will have access tracks used by maintenance crews.

This should be an unpaved service road, no?
52015-08-17 21:40:34 UTCSomeoneElse Personally, I'd map railway access tracks as "highway=track" as for example at , but obviously it depends on what they look like - some are more like service roads, and there are lots that are just footpaths. Here it's difficult to tell from just ...
62015-08-18 05:55:36 UTCPlaneMad Ok this seems a little at odds with how i'm understanding highway tags, that they primarily define function of a way in the road network, otherwise most unpaved roads in developing countries would end up being tagged as tracks.

If tracks in UK don't follow the wiki guidelines of being for agro/fo...

22015-07-19 15:49:30 UTCPlaneMad Hey FTA. Not sure what I was thinking at that time, but was likely a case of over enthusiastic mapping based on the building geometry and paths leading to it.
Thanks for highlighting this, I'm going to revert the change.
12015-07-08 13:44:43 UTCPlaneMad This is amazing work! But i'm seeing there is a lot of duplicated ways since you are drawing on top of roads that already exist. Did you download the existing data before you started?
22015-07-09 07:43:13 UTCsaikabhi Thank you Arun for the comments. Yes, I did not download the layer first. Instead I digitized the whole map in JOSM using reference of BING imagery and uploaded the new layer. That is the reason you are finding the duplicate layers. I have just started with open street mapping and it was an error on...
32015-07-09 09:18:50 UTCPlaneMad Aha thought so. Thats the whole power of OSM that you work on existing data instead of creating your own from scratch.

Noticed this message just now in my email.
