12017-12-07 14:17:16 UTCrene78 hi arenip, building=commercial or building=retail would be better in this case.
22017-12-07 15:18:25 UTCAkuAnakTimur And also, if you don't have to put in the names of things
1. if you don't know the actual name
2. when they are not even have a name

Welcome to OpenStreetMap, come join us in the forum:
32017-12-07 15:19:00 UTCAkuAnakTimur ** 2. when they do not even have a (display) name
12017-12-06 04:40:59 UTCAkuAnakTimur Or hopefully spawn something Pokemon Go... by the way, welcome to OpenStreetMap.
12017-12-01 13:28:29 UTCAkuAnakTimur Welcome to OpenStreetMap, Pokemon Go player.

Please tag playgrounds with their specific tag: Hopefully other tags are not chosen to (mis)represent these playground areas.
12017-10-17 08:25:50 UTCAkuAnakTimur Hello. What do you actually meant by "actual trail marked by Garmin"?
22017-10-30 08:58:37 UTCAdminOfPenangtrails sorry for late reply. the trail that we edited is based on data marked by me using garmin device.
32017-11-19 10:41:03 UTCAkuAnakTimur No problem. At least it clears things up.

One more thing, for your edits, do you use Bing imagery only, or other imageries (e.g. DigitalGlobe / Esri / Mapbox satellite) as well?
12017-10-20 22:56:22 UTCAkuAnakTimur Hello. Please use the latest DigitalGlobe layers and/or Esri World Imagery to improve this area. Bing imagery dates between 2005 and 2011 around here.
12017-10-12 15:55:55 UTCAkuAnakTimur Pokemon Go player?
22017-10-13 03:50:34 UTCMikitasan Am I doing it wrong?
32017-10-13 10:36:25 UTCAkuAnakTimur I'll send you a PM, in the future, if there are things need further tweaking/corrections. Just checking out, to see whether I'm able to reach you. Happy mapping.
12017-09-07 01:51:56 UTCAkuAnakTimur Welcome to OpenStreetMap! The best, updated background layer around this region is Esri World Imagery and/or DigitalGlobe layers. Refer to change it.
12017-08-18 03:42:22 UTCAkuAnakTimur Also source=survey
12017-07-30 16:17:04 UTCAkuAnakTimur Hi, please consider using DigitalGlobe Premium imagery. Bing imagery is from 10 years ago. At least DigitalGlobe is more recent.
22017-07-30 17:15:57 UTCsoale Hi, Thank you for the suggestion. I will use DigitalGlobe Premium for my edits in the future. Is the imagery available for most of the Peninsular Malaysia and Borneo?
32017-07-30 18:46:48 UTCAkuAnakTimur IMHO DigitalGlobe Premium might be more useful as you go further down south Peninsular Malaysia. Try checking DigitalGlobe Standard sometimes too.

To map across George Town only, apparently DigitalGlobe Premium is the best one.

I can't speak much about Borneo, but so far, both DigitalGlobe lay...
12017-07-12 01:36:28 UTCAkuAnakTimur Hello, welcome to OpenStreetMap. Could you please explain what VR that follows the name of a restaurant means?
22017-07-13 01:56:26 UTCLee Dave Hi,
VR means vegetarian restaurant.
easy for my favourite listing.
hope it helps
12017-07-09 06:28:41 UTCAkuAnakTimur Hi, thanks for your effort on naming these peaks. I'd like to know whether permission is given to put those here - because, copyright stuff and all that.
22017-07-09 08:24:41 UTCDenisOakley Good point. I got the information from here which is non-copyrighted (or doesn't claim copyright).
He states that:
- Peak names and elevations obtained from the Department of Survey and Mapping topographic maps
- Coordinate...
32017-07-09 12:56:53 UTCAkuAnakTimur I'm afraid the topographic maps from the Department of Survey and Mapping is definitely copyrighted.

Probably a bit of good news: the coordinates of these peaks were derived indirectly from OpenCycleMap's contour lines (Thunderforest Landscape). I'd be fine with the location of the peaks.

42017-07-09 13:07:07 UTCAkuAnakTimur But, as an alternative for (1), please read this diary entry:

The same database has names for geographical features, but beware: their position might be off its real position and probably using unconventional spellings.

Well, send me...
52017-07-10 12:28:14 UTCDenisOakley Yes. I will do that it may be a few days
Also planning to do some ground surveys to verify - I would also love to ask you a lot of questions about mapping in Malaysia and how I can do it better if you have time. Is this the best place for that
62017-07-11 06:38:35 UTCAkuAnakTimur If you have anything to ask regarding mapping, just feel free to send me a message through OSM (click on my username and click Send Message). It's way better to communicate over there.
12017-06-02 09:37:17 UTCAkuAnakTimur Welcome to OpenStreetMap. Please use leisure=playground ( to mark a playground, not leisure=park.
12017-05-14 10:25:11 UTCangys Actually the western road part from terminal to Permatang Pauh I/C is not BKE and it is under Lebuhraya Lingkaran Butterworth.You may check Wikipedia for more info..

12017-05-06 15:28:50 UTCAkuAnakTimur Parking?

Use abandoned:amenity=parking.
22017-05-06 15:29:40 UTCAkuAnakTimur Also refer to the OSM Wiki
32017-05-07 10:59:31 UTCOfficiallyAhmad @AkuAnakTimur I already add "abandoned:" in changeset 48471292, but it got convert from area to line.
42017-05-08 00:22:27 UTCAkuAnakTimur 👍 and a late welcome to OpenStreetMap. Need extra help? Can go to the forum or ask anything on
52017-05-08 05:57:15 UTCOfficiallyAhmad Ok, thanks for the help @AkuAnakTimur.
62017-05-08 09:30:19 UTCangys Hello new Malaysian mappers.
72017-05-08 09:41:41 UTCOfficiallyAhmad Hi @angys.
12017-05-06 00:43:15 UTCAkuAnakTimur Google Earth imagery? If I recall correctly, using any kind of data from Google is refrained I'm afraid:
22017-05-08 07:33:17 UTCOfficiallyAhmad I fix it in changeset 48493228.

I get to know what things that have change in this changeset from this website :
32017-05-08 07:39:43 UTCOfficiallyAhmad For more simply view of changeset change :
12017-04-27 12:11:42 UTCAkuAnakTimur Cuba guna tag landuse=garden kot
12017-04-25 18:42:34 UTCAkuAnakTimur Labu labi?
12017-04-19 14:48:59 UTCAkuAnakTimur Late welcome to OpenStreetMap, kindly take some time to read this official-ish blog post:
12017-04-08 08:45:19 UTCAkuAnakTimur Don't forget, it's for Pendang district as well. Just leave it blank for the time being.
22017-04-08 08:48:52 UTCAkuAnakTimur Because it's an incomplete (open) relation as well, if it's not me, then those who do QA will remove this in the near future. I have to remove this for now. Don't worry, there's a tool to undelete this.
12017-04-08 08:41:13 UTCAkuAnakTimur Duplikasi Edit Anda sudah didelete:
12017-04-08 08:36:18 UTCAkuAnakTimur Maaf, sudah ada yang ini:

Edit Anda sudah diunduh:
22017-04-08 08:37:28 UTCAkuAnakTimur Maaf, bukan unduh, sudah dihapus.
12017-04-05 06:35:39 UTCAkuAnakTimur Silly me. This time adding data, not reverting vandalism.
12017-03-29 14:35:28 UTCAkuAnakTimur What kind of stuff? 😏
12017-03-20 14:37:12 UTCangys I think that place=city is for Majlis Perbandaran or Majlis Bandaraya and Muar can be a little city..
22017-03-22 17:22:12 UTCAkuAnakTimur I see what you are trying to say. Muar is the royal city of Johor (Bandar Maharani), but Majlis Perbandaran Muar is the "governing local entity" (PBT), not Majlis Bandaraya Muar. See
32017-03-22 17:22:54 UTCAkuAnakTimur Whoops, local governing entity or Pihak Berkuasa Tempatan.
42017-03-22 17:26:11 UTCAkuAnakTimur In fact, the Wikipedia article explicitly mention Muar is a town.
52017-03-23 09:57:24 UTCangys My city standard is a local goverment that over 200,000 people and Muar already over this standard that have 247,957 people in 2010 see this

Wikipedia say it is a town but maybe now Muar can be consider as a Little c...
62017-03-23 09:58:37 UTCangys oh same situation on Kulim that have abot 287,694 people
72017-03-23 12:56:18 UTCAkuAnakTimur If consider your standard, then we have 39 (12+12+12+3) cities across Malaysia. I think better we stick to what's official and easier and clearer: which place got Majlis Bandaraya (that's definitely a city) and which got simply Majlis Perbandaran.
82017-03-23 12:57:50 UTCAkuAnakTimur Kangar is special case, but common knowledge says it is the capital of Perlis. Regardless its status as place=city or place=town, other tag can definitely help saying that Kangar is the capital of Perlis.
92017-03-23 12:59:49 UTCAkuAnakTimur Always remember that we tag data because that's simply it is in real life, not how we are going to show on the map --->
102017-03-25 14:28:31 UTCangys Ok so now Cities in Malaysia in OSM give to all capital and urban area as Klang Taiping or BM and other u can just give town as Temerloh Bentong Muar Sitiawan Kulim Dungun Kemaman Nibong Tebal Kuah Jasin Alor Gajah Kuala Kangsar Sepang for West Malaysia and other Just leave City. Just follow your s...
112017-03-27 09:08:37 UTCAkuAnakTimur I will stick to something simple and official. Which place got Majlis Bandaraya, and which place not have Majlis Bandaraya - got only Majlis Perbandaran.

Even Sungai Petani is under Majlis Perbandaran Sungai Petani, not Majlis Bandaraya Sungai Petani. It's official, Sungai Petani is only place=to...
122017-03-30 07:59:58 UTCangys So that mean you only reconize MB/DBs as a city?But the great city status normally is a capital too(only PJ is not a capital).Some place cannot get city status because money tax...So my side is MB/DB absolute a city.MP sometime is a city sometime not.
12017-03-24 08:12:45 UTCAkuAnakTimur Thanks for your edit. However, "Selamat Datang" is definitely "Welcome" in the Malay language. It's okay, later I will remove the name but not the place.
12017-03-20 06:17:05 UTCAkuAnakTimur Definitely needs GPS traces over here to confirm its geometry
12017-02-27 13:14:57 UTCAkuAnakTimur Sila isi nama bangunan sahaja dalam tag name=*. Tidak perlu ditambah nama tempat, melainkan ditulis sedemikian di papan tanda bangunan tersebut.

22017-03-01 12:39:01 UTCTembikai Duly noted. Tapi kalau tempat/bangunan berbeza yang berkongsi nama sama, contohnya "Masjid Al-Husna" ada satu di Bandar Sunway dan satu di Bandar Tenggara. Contoh satu lagi, "Masjid As-Salam" ada satu di PJ, satu di Puchong, dan satu di Rawang. Jadi, boleh tak kalau saya tambah n...

Kalau tag a...
12017-02-27 04:51:10 UTCAkuAnakTimur What source of data you're using to create this border?
22017-02-27 15:07:22 UTCangys based on local knowledge , not official just like postcode 14000
32017-02-27 16:57:17 UTCAkuAnakTimur Okay. Next time be sure to put changeset comment, something like "border created from approximation based on local knowledge". This is useful for other mappers and/or OSM big boss (Data Working Group). Who knows.
12017-01-28 03:23:09 UTCAkuAnakTimur Kalau nak main Pokemon Go pun... biar betul-betul. OSM bukan hak milik pemain Pokemon Go semata-mata.
12016-12-15 08:10:06 UTCAkuAnakTimur Dear Mapbox team, thank you (and the rest of the team) for your effort to detect and fix OSM data.

However, I believe this special case may be a false positive. It's undeniable that I have mapped this place remotely, without ground truth.

I have edited this region based on my (self made) EU Se...
22016-12-15 08:10:45 UTCAkuAnakTimur Sorry, the Mapwarper link is
32016-12-15 21:53:07 UTCyurasi Hi AkuAnakTimur.
Thanks for letting me know about this. I edited this highway based on Bing, where the part of this highway is clearly seen. In Mapwarper, when verified, I couldn't see the block very well. It would be great if you could let me know the recency of the imagery you have used. It would...
42016-12-20 14:36:14 UTCyurasi Thank you for the reply and such a clear explanation of the current scenario. It does appear that the road has been diverted from the reservoir. I've revert my changeset. Thank you for bringing this to our notice.
52016-12-21 04:40:49 UTCAkuAnakTimur You're welcome. Many thanks for your understanding.
12016-11-21 13:43:42 UTCAkuAnakTimur ATM bank apa ya? Kalau tak silap, situ ada bangunan kedai saja.
12016-11-19 14:53:44 UTCAkuAnakTimur The nonexisting street: was it confirmed through observation?
22016-11-19 15:06:16 UTCAlexjohnson95 Yes, me and a friend were looking to get to the Malaysian Tourism Centre via this street however it is gated off and has carparks in its place.
The only way to get to the centre was walking around the bank via the main roads as you cannot go straight through where the road in question should be.
32016-11-19 16:25:17 UTCAkuAnakTimur Thank you very much! Please refer here to see changes that have made: The map in MAPS.ME would probably take longer time to update.
12016-11-02 15:13:42 UTCAkuAnakTimur *poor
12016-10-03 13:22:56 UTCAkuAnakTimur Please don't put a Pokestop into OpenStreetMap (The app MAPS.ME uses OpenStreetMap database). In short, it's not a "real" place in real world situation.
12016-09-15 20:39:51 UTCnaoliv Is this a real place or it's related with the Pokemon Go game only?
22016-09-16 03:58:07 UTCAkuAnakTimur I guess it's a Pokestop according to this blog post, "Masjid Lebuh Acheh Pokestop"
32016-09-19 22:32:22 UTCnaoliv Can you fix it, AkuAnakTimur, please?
42016-09-20 19:00:14 UTCAkuAnakTimur Done! I deleted the node "pokemon" 4401863894, please see
52016-09-20 19:04:15 UTCnaoliv Thanks!
12016-09-03 15:00:59 UTCAkuAnakTimur Thanks very much for this edit. Is the shop open daily?
22016-09-03 15:10:39 UTCForesttrek Cycle Centre FCC Open daily 10am-7.45pm Daily - Close on Friday
32016-09-04 13:35:50 UTCAkuAnakTimur Thanks for your prompt reply. Made some tagging refinements - you can see here:
12016-07-16 16:25:36 UTCAkuAnakTimur "utang RM1050" dengan "utang Rm800" tu apa ye?
12016-06-11 16:01:06 UTCAkuAnakTimur Cangkat Cermin tu nama tempat ke?
12016-06-11 14:58:54 UTCAkuAnakTimur "Outcrop 2"? Apakah?
12016-06-11 14:57:49 UTCAkuAnakTimur Guest house "Baiduri" - homestay ke? Rumah sewa ke?
12016-06-06 06:43:32 UTCAkuAnakTimur * without realising it I guess...
12016-06-06 06:37:09 UTCAkuAnakTimur Jangan ubah nama kampung sampai macam tu sekali ye.
12016-06-04 06:21:52 UTCAkuAnakTimur Wonky changeset - this post office should be in Alor Setar, not Ipoh.

I will rectify this later.
12016-05-31 19:56:47 UTCAkuAnakTimur Also using EU Copernicus (GMES) - Sentinel-2 data
12016-05-24 18:38:12 UTCAkuAnakTimur Buang nama "Lebuhraya Persekutuan 1" sebab tiada papan tanda berkenaan. Kalau ada mohon ditunjukkan.
12016-05-23 17:15:22 UTCAkuAnakTimur Betul ke kawasan perkelahan tengah-tengah jalan ni?
12016-05-21 18:54:22 UTCAkuAnakTimur Selamat datang ke OpenStreetMap.

Kurang setuju pertukaran nama "Lebuhraya Persekutuan 1". Tak ada papan tanda jalan raya yang kata sebegitu.
12016-05-17 13:17:00 UTCAkuAnakTimur Some road geometry were traced fine, but not the others. Very likely unnoticed error.
22016-05-20 03:07:25 UTCwoodpeck_repair This changeset has been reverted fully or in part by changesets 39440562, 39439357, 39440062, 39439777, 39440318 where the changeset comment is: Revert a series of erroneous edits made by Facebook staff members in Thailand by their own request
12016-05-14 20:02:39 UTCrene78 viewpoint??
22016-05-15 12:38:26 UTCAkuAnakTimur This happens several times across the peninsular and Singapore, if I'm not mistaken. Perhaps the lack of place=* tag and tourism=viewpoint happens to be place at the bottom of the "Select category" options in the app? IMHO it's quite not fair to blame new OSMers whom happened to contribute...
12016-02-25 19:34:03 UTCrene78 i thought it is for motorbikes and not mainly for bicycles? cycleway is for bicycles.
22016-02-26 10:43:18 UTCAkuAnakTimur Could you please make edits to these, maybe? I also believed that these are motorcycle paths (highway=path with motorcycle=desginated)
12016-01-12 18:14:37 UTCAkuAnakTimur Sorry to comment quite late, you should have discussed this import with the rest of the community e.g. in the Malaysian forum.

Also, data from Google belongs to Google although it is JPJ's speed camera.

12014-11-06 18:34:06 UTCAkuAnakTimur Terpadam UUM punya area polygon - ganggu editing ke?

Setakat ni dah revert, tapi kalau ganggu sangat, padam tag amenity=university dulu, lepas tu jangan lupa letak balik tag tadi :)
