12017-10-12 21:15:37 UTCpnorman Hello,

this changeset seems to have added non-English names as name:en, e.g. https://www.openstreetmap.org/node/2897172697

Also, I can't see any information about the license of the data on wikiloc.com, just a (C) 老瓦 All rights reserved. Where's the license found?
22017-10-18 04:43:42 UTCkatpatuka I can only point you to https://lists.openstreetmap.org/pipermail/talk/2010-May/050017.html .

If that is not enough redact my edits having "wikiloc" tagged changeset comments of the last 7 years.
12017-10-16 09:17:17 UTCff5722 I think it's better to avoid placeholder names like "村". Adding a node place=village without a name is sufficient, or draw a landuse=residential to render unnamed villages.
It could even be a nuisance later, if people use search tools to find places with missing names, the placeholder n...
22017-10-16 09:36:18 UTCkatpatuka One can also easily search for name=村 in an area. The point is it gets rendered and someone local might get curious or annoyed and might start to add the missing name (some day). GNS data for villages is VERY bad for Shanxi and Shaanxi provinces - In some regions there are no Chinese names given b...
32017-10-16 09:50:26 UTCff5722 That's right. There's not that much harm, it just looks a little silly. (with overpass you can also search for place=village without a name tag: http://overpass-turbo.eu/s/smK)
It's actually a problem of the renderer, a village with no name should be rendered with a dot for example.

Almost alway...
12017-10-15 21:36:04 UTCstephankn For example at node 997415485 you did not add the "Ban" to the village name, despite it being written like this on their village sign. Any specific reason for not doing so? I think it should be ບ້ານຫ້ວຍຊຽງ
22017-10-16 04:47:14 UTCkatpatuka ບ້ານ "Ban" means village. When being rendered it should IMHO render without the village ending - would you add "Village" to every village in England? One could of course add the village name including ban to the alt_name - I sometimes do that in China with 村 (meaning vi...
32017-10-16 07:41:56 UTCstephankn Right. But locals seem to consider it so important that they print it on the limited space available on the signs.

Typically in OSM we avoid abbreviations in the data. So we add Street instead of St.

If a data consumer wants to generally avoid it then it can be filtered at nearly no cost. See...
12017-10-01 23:40:58 UTCpnorman Hello,

I was looking for some information on this source. Is it an import?
22017-10-02 04:12:33 UTCkatpatuka See http://themimu.info, especially http://themimu.info/mimu-terms-conditions
32017-10-02 05:01:31 UTCpnorman So it is an import?

Those terms are the license you've got the data under?
12017-09-15 06:21:34 UTCnyuriks Hi, if possible, please run JOSM's "wikidata" plugin - it can add the corresponding wikidata tags with just one command. Thanks!
22017-09-15 11:45:29 UTCkatpatuka Oh sure! I'd love to be able to use the wikidata plugin - the only problem is that I'm living in Turkey and wikipedia.org sites are blocked/hijacked for more than four months from inside TR so the "Fetch Wikidata IDs" gives an error. Only "Fetch coordinates in current view" still...
32017-09-15 11:47:36 UTCkatpatuka (See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2017_block_of_Wikipedia_in_Turkey )
42017-09-15 18:59:27 UTCnyuriks Thanks and sorry to hear that :( I have filed a bug https://josm.openstreetmap.de/ticket/15314
52017-09-16 04:38:10 UTCkatpatuka Thank you ;)
62017-09-19 04:19:33 UTCnyuriks Hi, this is very strange. Both Fetch Wikidata IDs, Fetch Wikidata coordinates, and Fetch Wikipedia coordinates use exactly the same server. Are you sure both work?
72017-09-19 05:30:14 UTCkatpatuka See output of actions:
https://pastebin.com/VGbbpDvR

Note that this happens on old XP with old josm ver. 8800 and wikipedia plugin version 31853.
82017-09-19 05:34:37 UTCnyuriks Ah, that makes sense - you are using tools.wmflabs.org - that's the tool labs, a user-controlled server farm under WMF control, but different IPs, and different capabilities. Apparently, its not blocked. One way to work around the ban would be to use my new service - I just added it to the latest w...
92017-09-30 03:16:02 UTCnyuriks Hi, I am still looking into how we can work around the block. Its a pain for sure :(
In the mean time, could you take a look at https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Wikipedia_Link_Improvement_Project -- I would love some help with them :)
I will add wikidata to your edits in the mean time.
102017-09-30 05:01:01 UTCkatpatuka I had a look and the page really lists all major issues one could experience with wikipedia/wikidata tags. But it's not a priority task for me now because I'm busy adding missing _Towns_ to China (currently still in Guangxi). Using Overpass to fix missing tags could be done easily anyway - maybe on...
12017-09-27 23:12:56 UTCnyuriks Hi, please add wikidata tags when adding wikipedia. JOSM can do it automatically using "Fetch IDs" in Wikipedia plugin. Also, please help with https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Wikipedia_Link_Improvement_Project if you can. Thanks!
12017-09-13 12:43:26 UTCTúllio Olá! Localização incorreta da Reserva Natural do Tombado!
22017-09-13 13:01:06 UTCkatpatuka And what is correct?

Reserva Natural Serra do Tombador ?
32017-09-13 14:15:06 UTCnaoliv From this shapefile http://sistemas.icmbio.gov.br/simrppn/shp/556/rppn/ it seems to be displaced.
The proper location is in red: https://i.imgur.com/hhngSQC.png
Note that the shapefile is in EPSG:4618 and needs to be reprojected to EPSG:4326 before using it.
42017-09-13 14:30:46 UTCnaoliv I replaced the geometry in #52008965
52017-09-13 14:41:55 UTCkatpatuka @naoliv: thank you :)
12017-08-28 10:19:40 UTCGerdP Hi!
Please review highway=undefined
on https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/510068045
Did you mean unclassified?
22017-08-28 10:25:03 UTCGerdP Found a few more ways with this tag created by you. Some look like residential roads, others like hw=track.
If you also don't know they should be hw=road
32017-08-28 14:19:58 UTCkatpatuka First comment fixed in https://osm.org/changeset/51510594 ;
I highway=unclassified a lot with josm so I don't know how undefined could happen :o

But I didn't find anything else with highway=undefined (http://overpass-turbo.eu/s/riF ) - so I reckon you've already fixed it ;)
42017-08-28 18:05:11 UTCGerdP They are still in the database:
http://overpass-turbo.eu/s/rj3

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 )
12017-05-29 19:54:23 UTCRichRico Hi katpatuka,

12017-05-04 22:32:15 UTCutack Unfortunately I had to produce this mess:
https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/480795841#map=15/12.2611/108.1234
Mapbox aerial indicates that there is a road, and so does this one
https://www.openstreetmap.org/node/4743899222
Can we somehow find a solution what is true here, the road or the...
22017-05-05 05:36:21 UTCkatpatuka Well - all other imagery I know of is showing a reservoir lake here, even bing's landsat. Mapbox imagery is darn old ;)
32017-05-05 05:38:44 UTCkatpatuka Have also a look at the GPS Traces layer in JOSM...
42017-05-05 09:36:41 UTCutack So aerial images say there is a reservoir, but the note at the gas station and the gps traces say there is a road
What do we do?
52017-05-05 11:01:01 UTCkatpatuka well . on the ground is the reservoir ;)

Did you also see note #785823 ?
62017-05-05 14:30:02 UTCutack Ok then. Can you just revert the CS i made?
72017-05-05 14:42:23 UTCkatpatuka I think that's not necessary: just delete the part of the way which is under water using bing's landsat imagery and tag the rest of the old ways with something like undefined...
82017-05-10 00:27:55 UTCutack Sorry for doubting you before, the new Digital Globe imagery shows this road is definitely not existing
92017-05-10 05:36:11 UTCkatpatuka nothing to be sorry about :D
12017-04-11 06:07:51 UTCnammala Hi Katpatuka,

May I know the reason behind changing the place tag from town -> village for the node: https://www.openstreetmap.org/node/369504774/history

regards,
nammala
22017-04-11 07:35:31 UTCkatpatuka Oh boy! Will you go on asking me for every single node for the reason why I change or delete it?

On map http://www.cadviet.com/upfiles/3/hc_soctrang.jpg it is listed as village and vi.wiki has no town with the name Tam Sóc ! Also town nodes once uploaded by user Ivan Garcia (https://www....
32017-04-11 08:28:11 UTCnammala Thanks for getting back .
12017-04-11 06:10:51 UTCnammala May I know the reason behind deleting the node: https://www.openstreetmap.org/node/369522428
22017-04-11 07:39:12 UTCkatpatuka see comment on http://www.openstreetmap.org/changeset/47630468
12017-04-07 06:15:29 UTCnammala Hi katpatuka,

May I know the reason behind deleting `name:en` in the two features
1. https://www.openstreetmap.org/node/369497122
2. https://www.openstreetmap.org/node/369497632
22017-04-07 06:47:50 UTCkatpatuka Hello nammala,
Sure - as you can see looking at the history of both nodes I've re-used two nodes which did have wrong place names:

* https://www.openstreetmap.org/node/369497122/history
* https://www.openstreetmap.org/node/369497632/history

I've used the place names found both on http://www....
32017-04-07 06:51:09 UTCnammala Awesome thank you . By the way great job improving the map.

12017-03-21 06:50:11 UTCBharataHS Hello,

32017-03-12 15:25:20 UTCandygol tnx 👍🏻
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...
12017-02-04 15:32:00 UTCmueschel Hi,
you added 45 villages with some strange tags, was this a mistake?
E.g.
CODE94X=903035
GLOBAL=0
PRIORITY=NONE
VILLAGE_ID=5826
http://www.openstreetmap.org/node/4227632087

Cheers, Jan
22017-02-04 15:39:01 UTCkatpatuka hopefully not ;)

The names are from the 11000 villages file mentioned on https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Import/Catalogue/Laos/RoadsRiversBoundaries
32017-02-04 15:41:12 UTCmueschel I didn't mean adding the villages, just these tags. They don't look like they belong to OSM and are not used in other places.
42017-02-04 16:52:19 UTCkatpatuka well yes - they are in the original file and I left them as is - comparable to other for osm useless tags like gns:dsg etc. originating from imports
12016-12-05 21:23:07 UTCff5722 Hi, can you also at least add the power=plant tag? makes it easier to find them to add more info later.
I will add them to existing ones myself. http://overpass-turbo.eu/s/ktD
22016-12-06 04:31:21 UTCkatpatuka Ok, sounds logical ;)
12016-11-12 01:54:15 UTCjptolosa87 Hello,
the "enlarging area" doesn't exist anymore since 2012 approx: https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/323780484#map=16/-20.5586/-175.4066
22016-11-12 04:58:50 UTCkatpatuka ok - I removed it. I didn't check for new imagery though - just had a look at http://volcano.si.edu/volcano.cfm?vn=243040
12016-11-06 18:39:51 UTCSupaplex Actually it's in Taiwan(TW), not China(CN)
22016-11-07 04:47:47 UTCkatpatuka Ha! That was good! Thanks, didn't notice ;) I thought I was editing 大埔水庫 in Guangxi - but zh.wiki redirects 大埔水庫 to 峨眉湖 in TW.
12015-10-29 16:16:05 UTCGerdP please review way 41526994:
the tag highway=project is rarely used,
I've changed it to highway=proposed,
proposed=motorway.
Please change proposed to construction
if that matches better. See
https://www.openstreetmap.org/changeset/34952761
22015-10-29 16:32:33 UTCkatpatuka Your tag is ok (as long as it does won't show up on the map) - user erkinalp has created that "proposed" highway 6 years ago but there is no imagery whatsoever showing any built motorway there around...
32015-10-29 16:38:57 UTCGerdP I'll ask erkinalp as well
42015-10-29 16:42:15 UTCGerdP .. and thanks for the quick feedback :-)
12015-08-11 14:20:34 UTCJean-Marc Liotier Hello. About node 3201060355 and node 3152567600 - you named them "ville" and "village" which mean "city" and "village"... That was not necessary as those are not names and they are redundant with the place=village and place=town which you correctly tagged.
12015-03-28 07:17:51 UTCBryce C Nesbitt kaptpatuka: What does set_better_denotation mean on this stream way 136450858 ?
22015-03-28 07:31:19 UTCkatpatuka I've no idea :)

user geohiker2010 created the way and added the tag 9/11/2011.

The Van earthquake occurred 23.10.2011. Therefore I suppose it was HOT editing.
32015-03-28 07:39:37 UTCBryce C Nesbitt Ok, gone.
12014-12-31 15:54:56 UTCAkuAnakTimur Thanks for adding the borders - I as one of the Malaysian mappers long enough for this (I am currently planning to send an official request letter to the Malaysian Department of Survey and Mapping to seek for some sort of official data).

By the way, may I know what is your reference? I'm guessing...

Two cents, I think I would do so, following another Commonwealth country's style. Refer to the Australian Capital Territory (http://www.openstreetmap.org/node/25842885) and the Australian Northern Territory (http://www.openstreetmap.org/node/304951006). They both belong to the federal Aust...
12014-12-27 06:53:32 UTCSupaplex These two Fujian Provinces are controlled by Taiwan and China separately. So there's not a duplicated.
And the Jinman and Matsu Island is controlled by Taiwan, not China.
22014-12-27 07:22:13 UTCpnorman Both claimed or both controlled?
32014-12-27 07:37:33 UTCkatpatuka I was not able to revert the changeset using josm's revert plugin.
BTW: English wiki says for Fujian: For the part of Fujian province administered by the Republic of China, see Fukien Province.

62014-12-27 10:29:10 UTCkatpatuka ok, nice :D
but please add a note with the content of your initial changeset comment so that it is clear that there are two Fujian relations. To make it even clearer one could name the Taiwan part Fukien Province.
