12017-10-21 19:12:11 UTCkeithonearth Ooops, I forgot, I also improved the stream trace in the upper Markha valley too.
12017-10-21 18:18:13 UTCkeithonearth Perhaps I should have broken this into two changesets, but in addition to my summary, I also retagged the path in the area of the military base, from track+visibility=no to a path. As it's primary use seems to be hiking, and it seems unlikely that this would be used for motor vehicles.
12017-10-04 19:33:11 UTCkeithonearth I've added these buildings from the City of Vancouver data, that is compatible with the OSM licence as per the Wiki and the mailing list.
12017-09-30 00:46:31 UTCkeithonearth This edit brakes a bike route relation (at Main and Keefer). It is the second bike route relation I've come across that's been broken by a telenav editor. Please be more careful, and note the warnings that JOSM provides when editing relations.

I've fixed it, but please try not to make these amate...
22017-10-02 05:59:21 UTClorandr_telenav Hy. i'm sorry for the mistake, i will be more careful.
32017-10-02 07:02:23 UTCkeithonearth Thank you. I could have been more polite with my comment. I'll try to be so in the future.
12017-09-30 04:49:04 UTCkeithonearth This edit added a duplicate relation for Haida Gwaii. I've deleted the duplicate, but saved the multilingual tags, but copy and pasting them onto the original relation. Thanks for those tags. I hope it doesn't feel like I'm stepping on your toes.

Here's a link to the changeset: http://www.openstr...
12017-09-29 23:01:11 UTCkeithonearth This edit changes the address of a building I visited from 12 E 10th, to 2617 Ontario Street. (The building at the SW corner of 10th and Victoria, http://www.openstreetmap.org/way/331422481). I added the this changeset: http://www.openstreetmap.org/changeset/45201188. As I noted in the changeset tag...
12017-09-17 23:31:30 UTCkeithonearth Hi mappered1, thanks for the addition of addresses. I did notice that there are 3 buildings with the same address (1733 E33rd). I'm putting a note (here: http://www.openstreetmap.org/note/1143839) about this ostensible error.

I'd also like to point out that iD (the OSM editor you are using) now ...
12017-09-03 05:03:25 UTCkeithonearth What's up with this? Has construction completed on the new school building?
12017-09-02 20:51:58 UTCkeithonearth Hi mappered1, I'm curious, what's the source for these edits adding address you are doing?
12017-08-18 03:20:57 UTCkeithonearth What's with the `highway=unclassified` with the `name=s` tag that was added with this changeset, just north of Hikkim? This is a very unusual name. It seems like it could easily be a typo. The changeset also lacks a source tag, so we can't tell what the name would be based on.
22017-08-18 09:33:24 UTCparambyte Hello. I don't think I created or named the highway. But whatever it is, it must be changed to what's right.
32017-08-18 22:18:55 UTCkeithonearth Ok, thanks for the info. The road's history lists the creation with this changeset, and not subsequent versions, so if you're not sure about the name tag, I'll remove it.
12017-08-08 22:40:30 UTCkeithonearth FYI, this edit added many power=tower nodes with identical locations, pairs with one connected to the powerline, and one not. I've fixed it with this edit: http://www.openstreetmap.org/changeset/50956271
22017-08-08 23:11:45 UTCOberaffe Thanks for fixing the towers!
12017-08-06 22:35:55 UTCkeithonearth Thanks for fixing this Checkpoint, I've added a note (http://www.openstreetmap.org/note/1094106) questioning if there is really a checkpoint here, and was wondering if you knew one way or the other. The reason for my doubt, is that I was not stopped here while cycling past last summer, nor did I not...
12017-08-06 19:41:32 UTCkeithonearth Thanks for your contribution Ana! It's good to have someone in Ladakh adding details.

You have made an error that is common to new editors, of using the name tag as a way to provide general information. It should be used exclusively for names. Names like "Fresh Naan 7rs!!" should not b...
12017-08-05 20:19:21 UTCkeithonearth I failed to update the source tag, yet again. This did use Bing, but also used Mapbox for sections.
12017-08-05 09:58:17 UTCkeithonearth I don't normally make major adjustments like this one based purely on imagery. In this case the discrepancy between the imagery and what we had mapped was huge. Slightly further south, in Udaipur, the imagery aligned perfectly with the public GPS track we had, and our mapped road was off. In this ar...
12017-08-04 08:26:51 UTCkeithonearth Oops, this edit used Bing, not Mapbox, imagery.
12017-07-28 23:25:39 UTCkeithonearth The way representing the canal I extended is in the opposite direction of the one it meets. As an irrigation canal this would have a direction of flow, so it makes sense that the way should match it, but I don't know which is the correct direction.
12017-07-23 23:17:18 UTCkeithonearth The "residential areas" that are added with this edit contain a great deal of farmland and wooded areas. I can only view it as inaccurate enough that the traces should just be deleted. But perhaps I'm missing something?

Also I am confused by the "#Pakistan" in the edit summary...
12017-07-23 22:59:29 UTCkeithonearth I'm adding a `religion=jewish` tag to this, as the Chabad institutions are Jewish. I do not know if this is a synagogue or not, but as some renderings may assume based on the current tags, but I will assume that the place_of_warship tag was accurate.

If the original uploaded could provide more in...
12017-07-22 18:10:30 UTCkeithonearth I see that this edit also added a `maxspeed=30` tag to at least one alley. This surprises me, because the default maxspeed in BC for alleys is 20km/h. What is the source 30km/h speed?
12017-07-22 18:10:26 UTCkeithonearth I see that this edit also added a `maxspeed=30` tag to at least one alley. This surprises me, because the default maxspeed in BC for alleys is 20km/h. What is the source 30km/h speed?
22017-08-01 23:19:36 UTCMelioraCogito I don't recall adding any speed tags to any of the edits (considering these were made over two years ago).
Feel free to correct them.
12017-07-12 19:22:49 UTCkeithonearth Hi Katapatuka. I see that you have added a
22017-07-12 19:28:26 UTCkeithonearth oops...sorry to hit send there before I meant to. :-/

I see that you have added a bunch of name values with this changeset, with many of them being in the Chinese language. I'm wondering where this info has come from. I also noticed that you mistakenly put a "(CN)" in the changeset summ...
32017-07-13 14:24:46 UTCkatpatuka Hm - in the heat of the moment I must have forgotten that I left China... :)

Since it is claimed by China there are of course sources for Chinese river names. I've set the name tag now to be in English.
42017-07-15 06:25:20 UTCkeithonearth Thanks for your answer katpatuka. And thanks for your contributions in this area, and in undermapped areas in general.

That said, I don't think it's a good idea to use Chinese data sources in this area. China has never administered this part of the world, but I think it has an interest in making ...
52017-07-15 09:47:02 UTCkatpatuka I noticed that user too. His changeset comments could be more descriptive... did you contact him?
62017-07-15 13:07:21 UTCkatpatuka ... his old username is jerryhappy (https://yosmhm.neis-one.org/?jerryhappy).
72017-07-16 06:09:01 UTCkeithonearth I haven't contacted the editor, I should, only haven't out of laziness. Although I did leave many changeset summaries stating the issue.

I was confused about their name, "Stop edit", is that a result of being blocked?
82017-07-16 07:56:15 UTCkatpatuka I don't think so... Pascal (neis-one.org) told me that the user had changed his name (see also https://help.openstreetmap.org/questions/33994/how-can-i-change-username-on-openstreetmaporg-is-it-possible )
12017-07-10 17:29:37 UTCkeithonearth This area is administered by India. Please use the `name:zh` tag for names in the Chinese language. Do not put Chinese names in the `name` tag.
12017-07-08 20:28:22 UTCkeithonearth I forgot to edit the chageset summery to say that this is adding the name:squ tag for Horseshoe bay. Not Vancouver.
12017-07-08 20:27:08 UTCkeithonearth Damn it. I forgot to edit the chageset summery to say that this is adding the name:squ tag for the Stawamus River. Not Vancouver.
12017-07-07 02:24:51 UTCkeithonearth I forgot to update the source tag on this changeset, it should read BC Mosaic, not Mapbox.
12017-06-23 08:07:00 UTCkeithonearth I'm not aware of this shipwreck, and am fairly familiar with this part of town. Does this represent a wreck that is still present at the site? Or was a pleasure craft that was briefly stranded here?
22017-06-27 15:00:15 UTCAntisthenes When I visited this area in 2016 there was a half submerged pleasure craft that seemed to have been there fore quite a while
32017-06-27 19:26:02 UTCkeithonearth Huh. Thanks for the info.

I don't know if that qualifies for the `historic=*` tag.

I'll try to remember to take a look at the site next time I'm in the area, because if the derelict pleasure craft is gone that would remove any need for debate over the historic nature of the craft.
42017-06-30 02:07:32 UTCkeithonearth I am pleased that I remembered to check this when I was cycling past on the seawall today. The wreck is no longer present, so I've deleted the node representing it.
52017-07-02 08:13:16 UTCAntisthenes Perfect. Thanks.
12017-06-30 01:27:57 UTCkeithonearth I'm not sure why this came through w/o a comment, but it was just me adding some house numbers to buildings.
12017-06-25 00:51:15 UTCkeithonearth Pretending that sidewalks that allow use by cyclists are bike ways does not help cyclists, it just obfuscates the reality of the infrastructure. Also footways are visible on most (all?) renderings, but if they didn't that'd be no reason to use inaccurate tags, as we do not want to tag things for how...
12017-06-21 17:27:01 UTCkeithonearth Oops, I forgot to update the source tag on this changeset. It should have been BC Mosaic, and no Survey.
12016-08-04 00:34:06 UTCAlan Trick A few items were added in North Vancouver in this changeset, can you confirm that they actually exist and weren't just an accident?
22017-06-20 16:50:56 UTCkeithonearth I've deleted one campsite that was added in this edit, as it was clearly inaccurate. I'm not sure if there are other objects added to North Van with this changeset that should be removed.
12017-05-11 06:36:00 UTCChetan_Gowda Does this park really exists? There are big buildings inside the park?
22017-05-11 06:41:06 UTCtriboyeric Yes. Google maps shows the area all in green, and there is a "Shannon Mews Park" sign at the entrance. Kind of like a green garden in between the buildings, with walking paths.
32017-05-11 07:00:35 UTCChetan_Gowda That's very quick response. Great! Thank you.
42017-06-16 06:23:54 UTCkeithonearth @Chetan_Gowda, I'd like to thank for the response too. I saw it on the map, and was surprised for there to be so many buildings in a park, but your response and some googling has convinced me that it's tagged correctly.

As per the CoV website some buildings have come down, and others have gone up...
12017-06-14 06:55:27 UTCkeithonearth This changeset adds the `name=Sunrise Bikeway` tag to an alley. This seems like it is likely an error, as I am not aware of any alleys with names in Vancouver, and this is not part of the (nearby) Sunrise bike route.

If I am mistaken please let me know, otherwise I plan to delete the name tag. I...
12017-06-13 19:50:06 UTCkeithonearth Thanks for these edits Alan! I added the first roads to Wood Lake Park just the other day, it's great to see so many details in the park now. :-)
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...

22017-05-22 18:33:11 UTCkeithonearth Welcome, and thanks for your contribution to OSM. I did notice that this edit did contain an error, where a postal code boundry was retagged as a footway. This may have been done when you didn't relize you had more than one object selected, or it may have been that you did not check what tags were o...
32017-05-22 18:35:09 UTCkeithonearth I should have added a link to the object (the post code boundary) in question. Here it is: http://www.openstreetmap.org/way/364312266
12017-04-26 22:05:10 UTCpnorman This has made https://www.openstreetmap.org/relation/5981481, a relation with the name of Bear Island but is the waterway.
22017-05-01 20:23:07 UTCkeithonearth Thanks for letting me know. I had noticed that this naming error was present, but had thought it'd originally be someone else's error. Maybe it was me. In any case I'd discussed it previously on this changeset discussion: http://www.openstreetmap.org/changeset/37239468.

I've now edited the riverb...
12017-04-16 00:40:57 UTCkeithonearth Any idea why the riverbank relation of the Seymour River has the `name=Bear Island` tag on it? This seems like a mistake. If I don't hear otherwise I'll delete this tag, and may try to simplify the relation.
22017-04-16 01:58:00 UTC604Wanderer Error on my part. Bear Island is located directly south of the Seymour Falls Dam (the foot bridge crosses it).
32017-05-01 20:19:12 UTCkeithonearth I've edited the riverbank relation's and island's name tags (http://www.openstreetmap.org/changeset/48317592) and think it should be good now. Please feel free to take a look and let me know if there are any issues.
12017-04-13 08:22:58 UTCkeithonearth I'm wondering about the place_of_worship that was added by this edit. It is a very odd location for some sort of place_of_worship, and I suspect that it is an error.

There is certainly not a place_of_worship visible from outside the building. Nor is it particularly useful to have a node tagged a...
22017-04-13 14:53:01 UTCpvimos The node should be deleted as the worship place (indoors) left the area.
32017-04-21 03:49:45 UTCkeithonearth Thanks for the info, and the quick response. I've deleted the place_of_worship: http://www.openstreetmap.org/changeset/47989901
12017-04-16 05:08:23 UTCkeithonearth This was me experimenting with editing capabilities of OsmAnd+. One thing I noticed is that it does not allow a source tag to be added. In this case the source was me surveying the buildings. Also it just lets me add nodes, not to add the address to the building.
12017-04-15 00:07:27 UTCkeithonearth I probably should say that I took off the oneway=yes tag from the section of the sidewalk between the Mt Seymour Parkway & Lillooet Rd intersection and cross-walk across the Trans-Canada off ramp because there is no signage specifying it as oneway. The sidewall continues further south, and I lef...
12017-04-14 20:55:27 UTCkeithonearth "thang" is a suffices that indicates a plataux or plane in Tibetan and Ladakhi, this is an odd name for such a minor crag. Also tagging it as a peak does not seem very accurate, as it is a small hill within a valley.
12017-04-14 04:16:25 UTCkeithonearth This edit changes a building into a park, inaccurately. I see that this is tippytoes first edit, I will assume that it was accidental, though the edit summery makes that a tenuous assumption.

Please take a look at http://learnosm.org/en/ for a great introduction on editing OSM, and use care when...
12017-04-08 00:51:44 UTCkeithonearth oops, the source wasn't bing, it was a survey.
12017-04-07 06:46:33 UTCkeithonearth I'm not sure if this is the best way to map these structures, but I can't come up with a better one.
12017-03-31 03:04:22 UTCkeithonearth I was messing around with the Maps.me app to see how easy it is to add addresses with it. It's ok, still a few more taps then I'd like, and would be nice if it gave a source tag to the changeset, "survey" in this case.
12017-01-09 22:14:49 UTCkeithonearth Where did this data come from? It appears to be an import. Was it discussed prior to importing? If so please provide a link to the discussion.

Thank you for any information that can be provided.
22017-01-09 22:20:34 UTCkeithonearth Oops, I see that the second edit (http://www.openstreetmap.org/changeset/21877729) by thevikas provides a source of "election commission of india - public data". So it was an import. As such I'd like more information about any discussion that took place before the import was done. More inf...
32017-02-06 08:11:39 UTCkeithonearth In addition to my concern about potential lack of discussion prior to an import, I have concerns about the quality and accuracy of this data. Of the 1270 nodes originally added with this edit 183 of them have identical coordinates with one or more other nodes. They were originally added as polling s...
42017-03-23 11:59:04 UTCthevikas Just reached here. I did not have any discussion before importing it. Actually it was also my first large scale import. So I also dont know the practises. I just figured out josm changeset format and made myself. The schools were marked since most (99%) polling stations are govt schools. POIs of Kas...
52017-03-23 19:27:51 UTCkeithonearth It would be a good idea to read https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Import/Guidelines. The short story is that imports should only be done with great care. I'm still not convinced that this import is beneficial, and will ask the DWG to take a look.
12017-02-24 05:08:41 UTCkeithonearth Thanks for adding this Francois. I've seen a couple new stations, but both times I checked and you've already added them.
22017-02-24 07:34:44 UTCfmarier I have a cronjob which runs daily so I can find out about new stations and survey them in person :)

https://github.com/fmarier/mobi-stations
32017-03-14 21:15:00 UTCkeithonearth That's rad. It sure beats my method of checking OsmAnd when I ride past a new station. I wish I had your python skills.
12017-03-07 08:29:12 UTCkeithonearth If you are like me, and feel a kind of thrill when you download the data for an area through JOSM, and it returns "No data found in this area" then try to do some mapping in this area.

Its pretty fun, with lots of rivers, streams, lakes, and road completely unmapped. :-)
12017-03-02 08:49:51 UTCkeithonearth Hi mappered1, this edit is an error. There may have been a gas station at the 7-11 at one point (a few years back?), but there is not one there at present, Well, wasn't a couple hours ago, when I double checked.
12017-02-14 19:50:56 UTCkeithonearth Hi katpatuka,

Do you have any idea why an edit like this, to a region in Turkey, shows such a huge bounding box? It seems really common, but I don't understand the reason.
22017-02-15 05:19:43 UTCkatpatuka I edited in Laos and had been downloading just a single node in Avanos district in Turkey to change a tag without creating an extra josm layer for it ;)
32017-02-15 19:01:47 UTCkeithonearth That's really interesting. So you'd uploaded all the changes in Laos, but the area was still included in the bounding box! That's kind of shitty. I guess I'm not the first one to find the history function on OSM.org to be not very useful, but this was one weakness that I'd not been aware of.
42017-02-16 05:53:59 UTCkatpatuka No, I hadn't uploaded the change in Laos - I edited something in Laos AND in Turkey THEN did the upload. So the behavior is normal :)
52017-02-16 19:21:24 UTCkeithonearth That is normal behaviour on the part of the software. Somehow I missed that there was that relation in Laos that had also been modified. I ran the edit through a history viewer (http://osmhistory.appspot.com/ I think) and didn't notice the change in Laos, but all I needed to do was look just under t...
12017-02-03 19:30:42 UTCkeithonearth Hi Purple Platapus, thanks for your edits, good to see new people mapping on OSM. You seem to have local knolage of these schools, and that's always a great addition to the map.

I did notice a few things that seem to be errors in Kerrisdale Park and Point Grey School. I've made an edit, cleaning ...
12017-02-03 03:52:49 UTCkeithonearth This edit introduces some nodes with bad tagging. The ones that stand out for me are the ones with name and ele tags, and no more. The ele value is non-numerical and identical with the name. If no info is added as to what these names represent (locality, piste, etc) then I'm going to remove them.
12017-02-01 18:50:29 UTCkeithonearth Thanks for answering my note (http://www.openstreetmap.org/note/835213), your knowledge on the Mackenzie river crossing, and the ice_road tag, I didn't know about that one.

I did do a minor edit to following yours, as you had applied the ice_road tag to a large length of road, that was both on t...
22017-02-01 19:18:18 UTCGreg_Rose Hey Keith - No worries, you were completely clear, and I understand completely. I actually left the ice-road designation there on purpose, as those roads are impassible once snowmelt happens: they turn into pure mud. Even though most of the road isn't on lake or river ice, the roadbed depends on com...
32017-02-01 19:29:22 UTCGreg_Rose Another dead giveaway: Staging areas next to rivers on the lower/down side (side of the river that goods are coming in from). On the south bank of the McKenzie where that ice-road comes ashore, you can see in the satellite imagery a couple of cleared out staging areas. When Fall comes, there eventua...
42017-02-01 20:00:21 UTCGreg_Rose Well.... Just saw a source that argued that when they go over land, locals call them "snow-roads". So... whatever.
"Seasonal" it is.
52017-02-02 10:21:00 UTCkeithonearth I think seasonal is the best choice too. Especially after looking at the OSM wiki entry on ice_roads (https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:ice_road).

Keep in mind that OSM tags may have different meaning that in common usage. So whether or not locals call the roads that are only passible when...
12017-01-13 09:14:58 UTCkeithonearth This is a highly political edit, and OSM is interested in the reality on the ground, not Historic agreements.
12017-01-11 02:08:33 UTCkeithonearth Species? What does this edit summary mean?
22017-01-11 10:06:53 UTCdoktorpixel14 He edited the species tag at trees and hedges
32017-01-11 18:44:28 UTCgileri I agree it's sort of short for a changeset this large
42017-01-31 09:50:19 UTCChrysopras And this kind of mass-change of many objects should probably be considered as a mechanical edit. See: https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Automated_Edits_code_of_conduct and the discussion at another changeset of the same kind: https://www.openstreetmap.org/changeset/45649120
12017-01-11 02:05:39 UTCkeithonearth Why are these two nodes tagged as tailors, but have the names of tattoo studios?
12017-01-10 07:55:35 UTCkeithonearth I also left comments on changeset (http://www.openstreetmap.org/changeset/21702908) that originally added this (and 1269 other similar nodes) if there's been discussion before importing this data.

I'm a bit concerned by the edit summary of this changeset, as it states "so they can show in ma...
12017-01-04 21:05:17 UTCkeithonearth This seems to be a common pattern, especially in India. The older route takes a more roundabout route, as roads get upgraded a bigger bridge, with more direct routing is built.

I'd say that anytime the the main road takes a detour at a side valley, and a minor road takes the direct route, it's w...
12016-12-30 23:12:30 UTCkeithonearth This edit is an improvement over the previous lack of waterways.
12016-12-27 08:02:00 UTCkeithonearth This changeset changes the name of Tangmarg to "Tangmarg, Jammu&Kashmir". I am changing the name back, as it is incorrect to include the state name in a village's name.
22016-12-30 17:03:42 UTCbarh Sure. ))
Happy New Year !
12016-12-23 21:45:26 UTCkeithonearth I forgot to add GPS to the source. There are plenty GPS tracks on the main highway, and I used these to confirm tile alignment.
12016-12-17 00:07:21 UTCkeithonearth Once again I forgot to update the source field in JOSM. The imagery used was *BC Mosaic* not Bing. I pretty much always use BC Mosaic for the area it covers, only occasional comparing it with Bing, as the Bing imagery seems to be more up to date.
12016-12-06 22:08:20 UTCkeithonearth This edit has moved a Mobi bike station to the middle of False Creek. I don't have time to figure out what happened, and fix it at the moment. Is there any chance someone else could?
22016-12-07 08:59:00 UTCkeithonearth Sorry if my last comment seemed a bit curt. I'm sure the edit was benificial, I'm happy to get speed limits and turn restrictions added.

Accidentally dragging and dropping a node is an easy thing to do. I've looked into the edit history of the node, and it seems like it'd already been added back...
12016-12-02 07:18:59 UTCkeithonearth Thanks for this edit, Quetron. I was just looking at the dirt jumps on the map, having realized that I'd made the area too large, and found that you'd already fixed it. :-)
22016-12-02 07:24:41 UTCQuetron No problem! It may have been bigger at the time you'd added the feature, but I think they've make it smaller in the last couple years. :)
12016-11-30 06:56:48 UTCkeithonearth It is helpful to other people if you give more information in the edit summary then just saying "mapping". Please do so.
12016-11-19 19:22:12 UTCkeithonearth Oops. I forgot to update the source field in JOSM, this was done with BC Mosaic imagery.
12016-11-19 19:21:59 UTCkeithonearth oops. I forgot to update the source field in JOSM, this was done with BC Mosaic imagery.
12016-11-16 07:37:46 UTCkeithonearth I was hesitant to make this edit, as there has been construction in the area since the Bing imagery was taken. In the end I decided to make the edit, as previous edit summaries did not mention any info source other than the Bing imagery.
12016-11-11 04:05:22 UTCkeithonearth Hi wentworth4, thanks for your edits. From what I've seen they are good.

Also, I was wondering if you'd be willing to leave more meaningful edit summaries. For example "adding address". Or "retagging bus_stop as bus_station" which is, as best as I can figure, what this edit d...
12016-10-27 18:55:39 UTCkeithonearth I forgot to update the source field in JOSM. I did not use Bing imagery here, as it is useless for this area. I used Mapbox. It is far better quality for this area.
12016-10-27 08:38:16 UTCkeithonearth 对不起,我不会说中国话

This edit seems to have some errors. 阳关中路 was duplicated, and a new road was added on top of the old road, with a name tag, instead of the name being added to original road. Also the name=* tag should contain Chinese, not "Chinese (and English)"...
12016-10-13 17:56:22 UTCkeithonearth The construction of the new road and bridge is visible on the Bing imagery.
12016-10-12 21:26:43 UTCkeithonearth This monastery has been one of the most important within Tibetan Buddhism, the town it is located in is of little importance. People often use the name of the Monastery to refer to the town as a whole, as it is more well known.

The tagging of the two was a mess, with some of the name:lang tags re...
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 https://www.openstreetmap.org/user_blocks/1056 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 (https://www.openstreetmap.org/changeset/42477487) 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 osm.org site to clear the message http://www.openstreetmap.org/user/Chalit%20Kaewjaroon/blocks 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.. I suspect that they are not names and actually describe the mapping feature. Until a Thai speaker can be found to check, the thing to do might be to at least remov...
12016-10-07 01:26:02 UTCkeithonearth There's a note (https://www.openstreetmap.org/note/183932) that discusses the buildings that you've tagged as commercial close to the bridge. There's confusion, because they look like ruins in the imagery you've used for this edit.
12016-10-04 20:45:47 UTCkeithonearth I don't normally delete things that are not in the imagery, but in this case the track had the same name tag as the highway. This "highway" was unpaved until recently, and I think this is a fragment of the original mapping.
12016-09-28 21:07:35 UTCkeithonearth This changeset seems to have been reverted also. I didn't do the main reversion, but cleaned up the last remaining nodes.

The issues are the same as the others, disconnected nodes with only a name tag, that means meaningful information.

Additionally, I would point out that this edit did not ta...
12016-09-28 20:31:58 UTCkeithonearth I've reverted this changeset, due to the same issues as the others. (many disconnected nodes, with meaningless tags)
12016-09-28 20:31:07 UTCkeithonearth I've reverted this changeset, due to the same issues as the others. (many disconnected nodes, with meaningless tags)
12016-09-28 20:28:34 UTCkeithonearth I've reverted this changeset, due to the same issues as the others (it consists of many disconnected nodes with meaningless names)
12016-09-28 20:12:42 UTCkeithonearth I've reverted this changeset, as I am unable to find anything constructive in it. Please feel free to ask me any questions if you have any.
12016-09-28 20:08:46 UTCkeithonearth I've reverted this changeset. It consists of a large number of disconnected nodes, that are tagged in a way that has no meaning in the OSM context, nor am I able to interpret them.
12016-09-27 18:50:41 UTCkeithonearth Please let us know where you are getting all these oddly located caravan sites. A number of them locations that I was familiar with did not have the caravan sites that you mapped. As I am no longer in India I can not check any more locations, but I have a hard time believing that there is a caravan ...
12016-09-27 04:31:15 UTCupendrakarukonda Hello,
Welcome to OpenStreetMap, you have added many `caravan_site`. It seems to be not correct. Can you please cross check and verify it?

Thank you,
upendrakarukonda.
22016-09-27 17:42:14 UTCkeithonearth Sorry not to leave more time after your comment upendrakarukonda, but I've contacted this user in the past about errors (often carivan_site nodes), and not received a reply.

I've now reverted this changeset, as it contains a number of identifiable errors, and inexplicably uses Thai language for ...
12016-09-27 17:20:17 UTCkeithonearth I've reverted this edit, as I have been to the location of the caravan site, and there is not one in this location. Thai language is not appropriate for use in name tags in India.

While I do not know that the other additions are inaccurate, I do not feel that the edit is reliable.
12016-08-09 20:38:23 UTCkeithonearth All of the nodes added by this edit contain only name tags, with no other tags. The name tags make no sense, eg "name=522 - STRAIGHT AT JUNCTION",or just "name=512".

Because of this I reverted this edit, with the changeset: https://www.openstreetmap.org/changeset/41354365
22016-09-23 18:09:01 UTCkeithonearth I'd be interested to hear abou the meaning of your edit, and the process you used to come up with these nodes in either way.
12016-09-23 17:37:56 UTCkeithonearth I'm sorry to have to inform you that I have reverted this changeset.

I have not been able to find any nodes that are correctly tagged in it. The majority of the nodes are just name=`xxx`, with `xxx` being a 3 digit number. The odd node has name=`note`, with `note` being a some sort of descriptio...
12016-09-22 16:48:30 UTCkeithonearth The route with less switchbacks is the main road now, what had been tagged as the NH3 is an old fragment of it that is the unfavoured route, is very rough and very steep. I mistakenly took it, to my regret.
12016-08-10 00:28:22 UTCkeithonearth This also seems to be a bunch of nodes that have been erroneously uploaded. They seem to refer to directions provided by a GPS devise for someone's trip at some point. Also this is not in HP, as the summery states.
12016-06-06 21:17:52 UTCkeithonearth Please see: https://help.openstreetmap.org/questions/50049 for more info on this edit.
12016-05-27 18:41:28 UTCkeithonearth Porpoise Bay Park was divided up into 4 blocks, with the road dividing it east/west, and an additional north south divide that did not seem to be for any reason, or correspond with any physical feature. Nor is it shown on other maps. As such I have joined the north sections with the south sections. ...
12016-05-24 08:06:06 UTCkeithonearth Thanks! That's a nice restaurant.
22016-05-27 22:17:43 UTCdevelopingcountries Thanks Keith. Yeah, it's a good restaurant. Not sure if you knew, but I also organize an OSM group in Vancouver with a friend: http://www.meetup.com/OpenStreetMap-Vancouver/ I hope you can join our OSM meetup group and come out to an event. Peter
12016-05-23 20:29:36 UTCkeithonearth Oops, this was a Bing trace, not the strava data.
12016-04-27 07:56:37 UTCkeithonearth I'd like to add a bit more info on my paper maps I mentioned in the edit summery source tag.

I have 5 paper maps that have this town noted on it, from 4 publishers. These maps are from China, the UK, and the Tibetan refugees in India. All the maps note either 安多, ཨ་མདོ, or Amdo (ie,...
12016-04-11 07:40:45 UTCkeithonearth I provided the wrong source in the changeset tags. I forgot to update it in JOSM. The correct source is Bing.
12016-02-19 06:17:17 UTCkeithonearth Well, I have no idea why, but after my meaningless edit, and refreshing my browser, the buildings all showed up. Most odd. I hope I didn't make a mistake when I first added them...
12016-01-22 01:14:29 UTCkeithonearth I mistakenly forgot to update the source tag. I used Bing imagery for this edit, not BC Mosaic.
12016-01-02 02:08:51 UTCkeithonearth Once again I forgot to change the Source field in Josm. This actually used BC Mosaic, and not Bing, as a source.
12015-12-26 07:55:24 UTCkeithonearth oops, I forgot to update the source field, this edit was just a Bing trace. Only my last edit was from wikipedia.
12015-12-11 20:43:56 UTCkeithonearth I wouldn't normally make such major changes to a trail w/o surveying it, but there was enough information contradicting the version mapped, that I felt it appropriate to change it. The main thing was there was far more river crossings than I did while taking this trail, and that river is big enough ...
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 20:37:15 UTCkeithonearth This edit removed all tags from Issyk Kul (Lake) except the name, that was changed to name=тер-я школа (Ter-ya School). This prevented the 182km lake from rendering. This was a big mistake. At first I thought it was vandalism, but the other things that this edit did seemed to be improvement...
12015-10-30 18:52:30 UTCkeithonearth Damn it, forgot to change the edit summery in JOSM. Not streams, just the main building in the Gompa.
12015-10-30 18:27:20 UTCkeithonearth I've re-tagged the area tagged as meadow, to farmland, as the it is clearly terraced, and only land worked as farmland is terraced in Ladakh. Due to the time of year the Bing Imagery was taken it was at times difficult the exact boundary, however I'm confident that it's an improvement.
12015-06-14 17:01:19 UTCkeithonearth Oops, I forgot to update the source field. The source was not BC Mosaic (that doesn't cover this area) but was almost exclusively my GPS tracks and survey. I looked at Bing imagery a little.
12015-03-30 06:01:58 UTCkeithonearth Hi,

I noticed that a short time after this edit the Tower of London is flooded. As it is a huge area that was edited I can't say if other areas were effected. I don't know if your edit was the cause, but I thought a heads up was in order.
12015-02-27 19:40:44 UTCkeithonearth I'm not convinced that the Riley Park site should be tagged as a constructing site. There is no active construction going on there now, and the area tagged as such includes one completed building that has been completed, and is occupied.
22015-03-01 08:30:41 UTCSpacecookies That's fair enough. I figured it was under construction after I read the city's plan for the site (http://vancouver.ca/docs/planning/little-mountain-policy-statement.pdf), and saw the whole area was fenced off and looked sort of like a construction site when I biked past it last weekend. If they're ...
