12018-08-20 09:16:29 UTCWarin61 Not a great change set comment.
12018-08-20 05:14:24 UTCWarin61 Park areas are best determined using the LPI Base Map .. not imagery. The park/reserves don't necessarily follow land covers.

Not all of the area tagged as grass is grass.
12018-08-20 05:14:18 UTCWarin61 The house numbers in Colgong Crescent are wrong.

This change set will need checking.
The source statement is incorrect - you cannot get house numbers nor street names from imagery.

So what is the source for this information?

A reply is expected.
12018-08-20 04:50:02 UTCWarin61 Two problems;
Is there a left turn from Wheatleigh St to Chandos St??
Thechange has broken the boundaries for Crows Nest .. and some other suburb/s. .
12018-08-17 06:58:24 UTCWarin61 Hi,
"Add local stuff" is not a good change set comment .. see
12018-08-17 05:17:12 UTCWarin61 Hi,
There is a mapper who thinks the cemetery is part of the Anthony Beale Reserve near as I can make out from their mapping.
You may like to put your thoughts forwards on their changeset
12018-08-17 05:05:51 UTCWarin61 No!

You are leaving the relation with one member - the cemetery as an inner.

a) delete the relation - so the cemetery is part of the park.
b) restore the relation with the outer as the way presently tagged as the park.

Your choice. Is the cemetery part of the park? then opti...
12018-08-17 04:50:33 UTCWarin61 Routes Mt Ollivier and Muller Hut are the same.
Suggest deletion of Mt Ollivier. Possible alt_name addition to Muller Hut.
22018-08-18 10:20:14 UTCjuhanjuku I'm agree
12018-08-15 02:14:13 UTCWarin61 Hi,
I believe the symbol and reference used for the hiking relation come from the book Rother Wanderführer, Neuseeland. As these are not 'on the ground' I don't think they should not be used in OSM.

It would be like using an English travel guide to detail Berlin with their notes.
22018-08-15 14:29:17 UTCjuhanjuku Hi,
osmc:symbol is for rendering purposes:
This symbol must not be equal with physical markings on path. For that is tag symbol.
So I can't understand why it bothers you.
There are thousands of hiking routes around world which have no markings...
32018-08-15 21:31:20 UTCWarin61 If I see a symbol on the map I expect to see the same symbol on the trail.

"Finally, don't just add a osmc:symbol to a hiking route because it looks good on the map. osmc:symbol should always reflect the route symbol that is used as ...
42018-08-16 04:56:50 UTCjuhanjuku Why you deleted ascent and descent tags? I have written permission from publisher to use Rother Wanderführer data on OSM
52018-08-16 06:06:39 UTCWarin61 a) How am I supposed to know that from this changset comments/source or the tags on the relation? I am not a mind reader.

b) Where in OSM is the permission shown?
I have looked on and on
62018-08-16 06:51:25 UTCWarin61 Take a look at click on the elevation profile .. that shows
Accumulated ascent: 695 m
Accumulated descent: 700 m

There will be some errors in there .. but might be better data than that book.
72018-08-16 22:58:57 UTCWarin61 There are 2 main issues raised here that are applicable to other change sets of yours.

Issue 1. Copyright.
A) The change set source does not state the guide book you are apparently using. And it is now too late to include it there. None of the features that apparently use the guide book have an...
82018-08-17 00:51:04 UTCPolarbear-repair Dear juhanjuku,
the Data Working Group became aware of this discussion. You say in comment #4 that you "have written permission from publisher to use Rother Wanderführer data on OSM.". This would be great news.

However, could you please _submit a copy of this permission_ to the Da...
12018-08-15 03:14:56 UTCWarin61 Hi,

Don't the horses of the BNT go north - they normally rest up in Hall .. use the Canberra Centennial Trail???
I think the route you have is the cyclist alternative path.
22018-08-15 03:39:23 UTCTheSwavu Route through the ACT is based on ACTmapi data (small detour in Bonner where the suggested path takes you through a drain). Horses can't use the Centennial trail as there are locked gates.

12018-08-14 06:36:51 UTCWarin61 Hi,
This changeset has broken the admin boundary Lang Lang, Yannathan and Caldermeade.
Partial reversion of this changeset to restore these relations.
12018-08-14 01:27:15 UTCWarin61 Hi,
Welcome to OSM.

The Forsyth Park boundaries are shown in the LPI Base Map - these are the legal boundaries of the park. Outer areas might be seen as part of the park, but legally they are not. They can be legally part of the road verge or some other thing. Probably still a council responsibi...

The change set comments .. not the best ..
please read
12018-08-13 17:32:44 UTCHLOSM Hi Warin61,

I saw that you added a segment here with two route relations (Auckland Hauraki Tour Aotearoa and Te Araroa North Island). Here is the lat and lon for the specific segment,

Is it possible for you to add these two relations into the adjacent segment w...
22018-08-13 23:40:31 UTCWarin61 Possible? Oh .. that is from a roundabout ..
there are 2 duplicated segments that I did not pick up on.

Way: Puhinui Road (615737626) is preferred as that includes the roundabout in the routing.

32018-08-14 18:20:56 UTCHLOSM Thank you for changing it and moving the two relations over to the way 615737626.
12018-08-13 05:23:07 UTCWarin61 Again .. what is the source? It is not bing as that shows a farm field here.

22018-08-13 07:37:54 UTCWarin61 Hi,

42018-08-13 12:22:45 UTCWarin61 OK.
For ways that dead end - don't connect - tag the end node with noexit=yes .. that will tell the tools not to flag them as possible connections. Might also get highway=turning_circle if there is one?

Where I have estimated things from a personal survey .. then I list that as my source. If s...
52018-08-13 12:31:04 UTCnibennett Thanks for the tips about the tags / listing the source.
Hadn’t found how to change the source. The esri ones was the most recent satellite available through osm, still older than the google which i didn’t use and obviously my personal out there.

Nah no turning circle. That’s ...
12018-08-13 09:48:06 UTCWarin61 Hi,
You add foot=yes and bicycle=yes to part of the Queen Charlott Track. Is this true - even for those not staying at the Resolution Bay Cabins?
22018-08-13 17:43:31 UTClocke Hi, for the part I added this information it still seems to be true, the part only for those staying at Resolution Bay is tagged as access=private (not by me) (there is a detour).
12018-08-13 05:21:47 UTCWarin61 Hi,

12018-08-11 04:40:35 UTCWarin61 Breaks relation of Sydney Harbor. Removes the end of wharf 5 Circular Quay ...
12018-08-10 10:52:26 UTCWarin61 I have no idea what LVE means. Explain.

The building you entered as Way: 615521052 .. crosses it self. The bing imagery is very poor to see that kind of detail from.
12016-06-14 04:23:12 UTCLeon K The source:maxspeed applies to the ways but putting it on every node is overkill.
22016-06-14 21:13:11 UTCsamuelrussell I agree, I firmly remember discovering my error after upload and chasing down nodes with source:maxspeed applied to them to correct.
32017-04-06 12:01:15 UTCaharvey You've also added maxspeed=40 to pedestrian footways which have no maxspeed signs from ground survey. I've fixed up one of them.
42018-08-08 23:07:55 UTCWarin61 Done the southern part ... ~100 nodes with source:maxspeed .. but no maxspeed.

I did a search that should be all the nodes done for this area.
12018-07-25 08:36:02 UTCWarin61 Hi,
scrub is not a land use .. it is a land cover, that you may tag as natural=scrub.
22018-07-25 20:03:28 UTCDyserth Yeah well at least it rendered before you altered it to different tags. What's the point of changing tags to prevent the polygon from rendering at all? iD allows entering of the tag landuse=scrub and OSM Mapnik then renders it which is the point of "improving the map". I feel we shouldn't ...
32018-07-25 22:36:02 UTCWarin61 Tagging for the render? :)

Editors should allow 'any tag you like' as that is an OSM principle.

Natural=scrub is the documented tag on the OSMwiki .. if you search for scrub there you get that page. Natural=scrub has over 1,800,000 uses in the data base, so it should render!
Landuse=scrub is...
42018-07-25 22:55:27 UTCWarin61 Note
natural=scrub look like it renders

man_made=clearcut looks like it does not render see

52018-07-26 09:53:09 UTCDyserth Hi it would seem that while natural=scrub renders it does not render if the polygon is tagged with landcover=scrub also (or man_made=clearcut), only if the natural=scrub is standalone. Please can you check this and modify your edits accordingly. Cheers.
62018-07-26 11:03:39 UTCWarin61 Before you changed is it rendered correctly with landcover=scrub and natural=scrub!!! And I believe that the change you made there is yet to be processed ..

The problem here is apparently man_made=clearcut.

You will note this is not rendering corr...
72018-07-28 23:49:01 UTCWarin61 Now that is strange ...

Not rendering here as 601076497 natural=scrub, but when I download it to JOSM it is rendering (well untill zoom level 12)?

Way: Knowles Wood (388771229) is rendering as natural=scrub. So that is fine.

Rendering with natural=scrub and landcover=scrub on;

82018-07-28 23:59:16 UTCWarin61 Arr .. the wood area over laps the scrub area... merging Node: 5713634516 with Node: 5713635454 might fix it.. ok those nodes combined into 516 ...looking for other problems ... none found. Ok, wait for the changes to filter through.
92018-07-30 22:12:24 UTCWarin61 Ok .. I am now happy that it renders.

Are you happy with this way now?

Would you like to add the tag clearcut to it and see what that does?
102018-08-03 03:05:04 UTCWarin61 No response.

I'll reintroduce the tag you had of clearcut and see what happens then.
112018-08-08 00:08:17 UTCWarin61 Well .. there we are now.
landcover=scrub, man_made=clearcut and
natural=scrub all coexisting. And it renders on the standard map.
Look like the reason this did not map was the over lap between this way and the other way for the trees.

So, are you now convinced that the landcover tag does n...
12018-08-04 23:11:34 UTCWarin61 Things that go under bridges are not necessarily in tunnels.

Sub stations are not military areas.

Furphys removed.
12018-08-04 21:48:57 UTCWarin61 Reverted.

No point in saying why.
12018-08-04 10:17:18 UTCWarin61 Hi,
Sixmaps is copyright.

I hope what you are using are the LPI NSW base map or Imagery. That is what you have ready access to using JOSM.

Sixmaps is the commercial arm of LPI ... Please correct your source statements from here on?
12018-08-04 01:48:08 UTCWarin61 In this change set:
You add a view point in Canada. What is the source of this view point? It cannot be LPI NSW Imagery.

You changed the name of Manly Creek to Manly Creek - Reserve and added "reservation"="members_only" This is wrong .. you need to change it back.

12018-07-29 09:43:51 UTCWarin61 Hi,
Deletion of way 41748629 has broken 2 council boundary relations. I am restoring it.
Probably undoes your changes. Take care.
22018-07-29 10:35:31 UTCalanmcd Hi Warin61, Thanks for the message. I did notice that a boundary line extended south west within this area but finished with no connection. I'd like to see what you restore there.
32018-07-29 10:37:21 UTCalanmcd The last node was also connected to a road and I couldn't disconnect it as usual with iD OR Potlatch.
42018-07-29 10:48:42 UTCalanmcd I can see you've restored the line, but it's again now connected to a road and serves no purpose as a boundary since no area is enclosed. Seems wring to me.
52018-07-29 11:03:05 UTCalanmcd OK - I can see now in JOSM that the roads are also tagged as boundaries. So I can work out how to see this is iD and Potlatch as well.
62018-07-29 11:08:51 UTCalanmcd I've also corrected the boundary line as it was connected to a road which does not exist. I extended it to the road and deleted the small section of road which does not exist.
72018-07-29 11:10:52 UTCalanmcd Hope that puts it all right
12018-07-28 04:51:07 UTCWarin61 Can be better.
The gates need to be connected to a fence.

Circles can be made - then separated into circular segments.

No need to address details on things that don't receive mail and visitors go to the park as it has a name they can search for.. not the playground.

Fix your other error...
22018-07-29 01:05:18 UTCTagaSanPedroAko And, why this has a large bounding box?
32018-07-29 01:31:09 UTCWarin61 Because redbackspider copied Le Desert from France to Australia in a previous changeset?
42018-07-29 01:31:35 UTCWarin61 PS redbackspider does NOT communicate.
12018-07-28 07:06:21 UTCWarin61 Hi,
No bunkers? Tag natural=sand for renders.

Ar .. you have only just begun. Pardon while I watch with interest what you do.
I have tagged the Cooper Pedy GC .. all sand, with the non-rendering golf tags. Could not do much out there with the sand every where.
12018-07-28 05:05:49 UTCWarin61 Bad changeset comment.
What else could be wrong here?
22018-07-28 05:52:42 UTCWarin61 There is no permanent SLSC building on the beach!!!!

The Russel Jones Memorial Pools' name does not include the date. Nor do there need to be both a node and a way with the details.
12018-07-28 03:38:54 UTCWarin61 Moving Le desert from France to Australia is not on.
12018-07-26 10:55:01 UTCWarin61 This rendered correctly before you remove the landcover tag.
12018-07-26 07:14:22 UTCWarin61 Hi,
There are some problems with Way: 610735693 - building = school.

First as a single building .. it crosses itself. That is not on.

Second there is a conflict between the building and a road already in OSM

Third .. using bing .. it is not a single building .. but at least 5 separate bu...
22018-07-26 07:22:16 UTCWarin61 Oh the pitches you have marked as basket ball .. one is netball - different court markings. I have corrected this. There are a few other pitches to map here too.
32018-07-26 07:23:19 UTCnigelcharles I have separated the above school building. Bing is rather blurry for this. The roads in general seem a little out of place on most maps for that area by a small margin, however I will just work around that
42018-07-26 07:25:57 UTCnigelcharles I have not yet worked out how to mark interior courtyards, the building in the set, to the left - Smithton Primary School has internal components which are linked, but also has actual connections as well. Is there an easy way to mark concave shapes or interior atriums/courtyards?
52018-07-26 09:10:59 UTCWarin61 Interiors are dealt with by declaring a multipolygon relation - the outer way is placed into the relation with the role 'outer'. Then the way for the inner is placed into the relation with the role 'inner'. You can have more than one inner, and more than one outer. The relation carries the tags, not...
62018-07-26 09:15:03 UTCnigelcharles Yes, that was definitely the building i worked on recently wondering about interiors. I will check some examples and try and fix that up right too. Thanks for the info
12018-07-25 20:21:29 UTCDyserth Hi Please see reply comment on C/S 60102631. Applies here too.
22018-07-26 02:23:24 UTCWarin61 If you look at
you can see it now renders. It did not render before the tag change.

I have commented at length on Further comments can be made there.

12018-07-24 23:20:22 UTCWarin61 No.
These are not;
fords ...
unclassified highways ...

They are farmers fields.

They may have water ways that the farmer has made .. but they are not creeks, streams nor rivers.

And stop using the name tag as a descriptor!!!!
12018-07-24 00:01:23 UTCWarin61 Again .. names are for names only. Not as descriptions. E.g. 'Intermittent Stream', 'Condamine Intermittent River', 'Condamine Riverbank', 'Service Road' etc.

Remove them.

12018-07-22 22:32:07 UTCWarin61 Hi,
Welcome to OSM and thanks for your contribution.

The way 609727892 you introduced for parking is not correct. Ways should not cross themselves .. in this case they need to be separated up into 3 individual ways.
22018-07-23 08:24:55 UTCChan_13 Hi,

Thanks for the message. It looks like you corrected it already?
32018-07-23 10:43:30 UTCWarin61 Sorry, yes I corrected it. But wanted to pass the information on to avoid repeats.

Keep mapping, there is heaps to do.
12018-07-22 23:29:06 UTCWarin61 Inappropriate change set comment. Again.

Your Swamp DropDown is not a swamp. It could be a storm water drain ... Swamps are drawn as an area.

the Coogee SLSC is already on a building there is no need for it to be on a node. And this node now distorts the building.

12018-07-19 01:05:08 UTCWarin61 Hi,
A guide in principle .. one feature one main tag. There should not be a leisure=park with another tag landuse=* .. they should be on two separate features.
If a leisure=park is all grass then add the subtag surface=grass.

22018-07-17 06:36:25 UTCJohn Bek Ok, got it now. Apologies
32018-07-17 06:42:20 UTCWarin61 That is fine. Somethings like these building parts are very confusing! And then there is landuse=grass grrrr.
12018-07-17 04:23:27 UTCWarin61 Hi
The playground Way: 497966365 tagged with landuse=sand is not correct .. landuse is the human use of the land. The sand is a landcover, and in this situation the tag to use is surface=sand.
I have corrected this.
12018-07-17 04:07:54 UTCWarin61 Hi,
You have a 'landuse=sand' for Way: 517307485 also taggged leisure=playground.
I think you meant landcover=sand .. but that will not render .. surface=sand should render.
Out of interest, where did you get landuse=sand from?

I have corrected this.
12018-07-17 03:40:37 UTCWarin61 Hi,
The landuse key is for the human use of the land. Scrub is not a human use of the land.

Scrub is a land cover .. you can use landcover=scrub - it will not render .. and natural=scrub - that will render .. no matter if the scrub is natural or 'unnatural'.
12018-07-15 23:00:07 UTCWarin61 Humm... not quite what I meant :)

12018-07-15 03:33:17 UTCWarin61 Hi,
There are a number of problems...

22018-07-15 03:37:14 UTCWarin61 Err .. tag the outer area (the relation) as a golf course see - this means removing hte pitch and driving range .. and I'd remove the grass as not all of it is grass.

Welcome to OSM.

22018-07-15 03:21:51 UTCmmmuntazim ah i see. the line was already there. but it was inaccurately represented. i just edited it to add details like its a outer boundary with a fence. i did not want to confuse customers as they might think its open to enter that way.

Not zoomed in enough to see the Jack William Park so though it was not there.
I have left behind the way for the LPI Wiradjuri Park as a warning for others .. the new tags will not render but should give a message to anyone who down loads that area.
32018-07-14 18:06:49 UTCBrettM6000 OK, yes that is fine, no worries. Thanks for the update.
12018-07-11 00:30:09 UTCWarin61 Hi,
football ??? what kind of football? Soccer?
Multiple sports are added using the ';' as a separator ... e.g. sport=cricket;soccer
Given the shape of the pitch I'll assume OZie rules.
12018-07-10 23:52:59 UTCWarin61 The entries to this roundabout for the junction of Clarkson Drive, Inskip Avenue and Karoonda Road do not look like the entries you have made.
The one way sections should carry the name of the road too and should be tagged oneway=yes.

I have corrected this. Please take a look at it and use it...
22018-07-11 06:27:09 UTCCocoEnBuisson Ok I gonna make that for the future thanks for the tips ^^
12018-05-14 23:21:20 UTCWarin61 Hi,
You have added the address as a name to some of these buildings... Why?
The name tag should only carry the name, nothing else.
22018-05-16 22:33:00 UTCJohn Bek There are many buildings whose names are the street addresses, so this is why I have named them as such. Even the building that I work in has an address for its name. But if name tags can only carry "names", then so be it
32018-05-16 23:14:38 UTCWarin61 Many buildings have their address as a sign on the front of the premises .. and bless them for it!.
However ... you tagged 10 Bridge Street as the name of that building .. yet it has a name that is not '10 Bridge Street' ... see
42018-07-07 12:13:26 UTCaharvey It can be hard to tell sometimes, but I think that if sources (signage, local knowledge, etc) confirm that the building name is the address + street, then it's okay to put that in the name tag as that reflect it's name.
52018-07-08 07:37:21 UTCJohn Bek Yeah, I think I'll just leave it blank from now on anyway, if the signage states only an address.
62018-07-09 00:01:18 UTCWarin61 I'd not take a simple sign stating the address as the name of the building.. I would add it as the address of that building. If I recall correctly all the 'names' I removed were not entered as the building addresses .. I did add the addresses. I did not remove 'names' that reflected addresses eg 'On...
12018-07-08 04:11:06 UTCWarin61 Hi,
An area of scrub .. is not necessarily a reserve. Way: 580315513 I have changed from nature_reserve to scrub .. that is all you can tell from imagery. The LPI Base Map would show a reserve - this particular bit is inside a park.
Well spotted on Simon Pearce Park though. :)
12018-07-02 22:11:56 UTCWarin61 Hi,
Roundabouts don't go well on boundary relations. You need to remove them from the relation and make a new way - use the LPI Base Map to see where the boundary should go.
22018-07-04 01:02:40 UTCWarin61 Keep the comments on the changeset - makes it easier for me to track.

12018-06-30 01:46:31 UTCWarin61 Hi,
Not all of this park has grass. And the tags landuse_1 leisure_1 etc are better tagged as separate items .. not generally for all the park.
It would be nice to have a name for this park.

Similar comments for Lake Weeroona Park
12018-06-28 04:03:52 UTCWarin61 Hi,
The tags you have added confuse things. I'd take the area as a park - that is its main function.
If you want to add drinking water ..then do that as a separate item .. preferably as a node where the water is. Playgrounds and picnic tables the same.
If you cannot be bothered but want to sign...

There are 2 areas tagged Zion Field .. .are they all the same name?

And grass is a surface .. is the Park entirely grass?
A garden? Of grass?
A pitch? for what sport?

I don't think so. I have left it as a park for now, but removed the rest.

12018-06-15 07:18:54 UTCWarin61 Hi,

The reserve has a legal boundary shown in the LPI Base Map. The grass can begin or end at some other place - they don't need to be aligned.

22018-06-13 02:59:32 UTCPeter W34 Hi Warin, Looks like a wooded area but not used for timber production at the moment. It is hard to tell whether it is managed as a forest. I would have kept the tags from the previous mapper.
12018-06-12 03:40:17 UTCWarin61 Hi,
Way: 466215252 - forest is not entirely covered with trees.. and if you look closely on th eLPI base map you can see it extends to the east for some distance too. I have extended the area and tagged it as a park. It could be a nature reserve though.

22018-06-11 23:23:42 UTCWarin61 I have deleted some ways.

22018-06-06 23:59:07 UTCcleary I am still working on this relation. It is rather complex and I am doing it slowly and trying to doublecheck it. I should be finshed in a two or three days. Perhaps you might check again in a few days to be sure I have it right.
32018-06-07 00:16:02 UTCWarin61 Good Luck with it..
12018-06-05 23:00:14 UTCWarin61 Messed up .. not a closed relation presently. Warmbatcher has also beentrying to correct it.

I have used the LPI Base Map to close the relation ..

22018-06-06 07:29:40 UTCglglgl If the locals don't seem to care about intact relations, then maybe it is not a good idea to leave it to them.
Instead, the last changeset done (assumedly) by a local destroyed the relations again and left them open.
32018-06-06 07:54:08 UTCglglgl And as far as I can tell, after my changes, the admin relations as well as the Regional Park relation was intact.

22018-06-06 22:34:13 UTCberms Thank you for the message. I see where the issue was created which caused a gap and intersection between the wood multipolygon ways. I appreciate you making the correction.
12018-06-05 22:37:57 UTCWarin61 This has broken relation 6354226 - wetland.
I have corrected this using the NSW LPI Bzse Map ... and changed the appropriate source tags to suit.
22018-06-06 22:29:31 UTCberms I see that the wetland was accidentally collapsed. Thank you for making the correction and bringing it to my attention.

Forget about the relation ... just do the building and get that right first.

I have deleted the relation and placed its tags on the bottom bit of the building.
So work on the building parts .. I'd help but I too get confused with them.

32018-05-24 02:50:18 UTCWarin61 Opps .. not looking far enough at the tag history, sorry.
Not certain what to tag it. Don't think OSM has a tag for estates. I think the boundary is out of date anyway ... I adjusted some of it to the LPI Base Map think that is more accurate .. but even that is out of date.
42018-05-24 03:02:21 UTCFreshwaterBeach All good. 👍
12018-05-23 22:00:16 UTCWarin61 Hi,
Relations should not have ways that contain the same tags.. so all these outer ways with the same tag as the relation that you have created generate errors..

It also added a node (a point) that had no tags (data) and added a node with address 44;61 which makes no sense to me. There is already a node there with the address 44.
So... all this has be re...
12018-05-04 22:52:19 UTCWarin61 Hi,
Do you know this area?
It has me puzzled ... I can see no signs to say it is a 'park'. Agree that it is 'undeveloped' and may be best to tag it as an area of trees...
22018-05-04 23:48:19 UTCTony Cooke Hi,
Yes I do know the area.
To be fair, you could be right. There are a number of walking and BMX trails through the area but other than that it is undeveloped. I suspect I tagged it as a park simply because it seemed the best label.
I'm not aware of a park name - or I would have added it.
32018-05-05 03:09:03 UTCWarin61 From the LPI Base Map .. I expect it is part of the Hospital is some official way... possibly for future expansion, drawn up by a planer unaware of the topography.
Might be best to remove the park and recreation grounds tags as these are assumptions based on appearance/unofficial use?
42018-05-05 05:44:14 UTCTony Cooke I doubt it's hospital ground - it is quite steep - as is Denistone Park nearby. The hospital itself is on a level section. I suspect it was just left as greenspace, maybe originally remnant forest.
If you want to remove the tags, go for it.
12018-05-02 21:43:41 UTCWarin61 Hi,
The relation 584484312 carries a name ... but no physical or administration features ... What is it?????
22018-05-03 01:07:42 UTCwoowoowoo HI there, I'm sorry, relations do my head in! I can't find this relation 584484312. I did have some problems splitting up a former single building into three parts, but I thought I'd cleaned up all the bits. Are you able to clarify the problem?
32018-05-03 01:14:11 UTCWarin61 The relation has been deleted by someone... they are not considerate enough to leave any feedback.
My guide is .. don't use relations unless you really need to.
I can only assume that the name that was tagged on the deleted relation is now lost. It was a 3 digit number .. possibly a building num...
42018-05-03 01:36:50 UTCwoowoowoo Yeah, I was splitting up some buildings, and the ID editor sometimes creates relations automatically. So, it was probably just one of those fragments - certainly not anything I created deliberately, or was even aware I'd created. If it was a three digit number, it would have been one of the unimelb ...
52018-05-03 04:18:17 UTCWarin61 Arrr got the number wrong ..? The otehr one must be a way I fixed up.

It is relation 8257215 .. name=873 ... and it is still there so you can work out where the name should go.
12018-05-02 21:59:56 UTCWarin61 Hi
Relation 8256350 "natural=bare_rock' has 1 member - this does not need to be a relation. It is a simple way. Changed.
12018-05-02 21:59:37 UTCWarin61 Do not use the name= tag to describe something!!!!!!!
If you really must describe it then use the tag description=
22018-05-04 01:08:20 UTCSanityChek The name was temporary while I worked out what daft name they had given it, and found details of the monstrosity building they were putting up
12018-05-01 21:30:02 UTCWarin61 Hi,
The Gondwana Rainforests of Australia World Heritage Area relation is now not closed...
Secondly .. are you certain that the additions are part of the world heritage listing?

I'm not doing CAPAD ... leaving it to others.
22018-05-01 22:18:51 UTCnevw Thanks Warin
I have fixed now. I have not intentionally added any new Gondwana parts, just fixed the overlapping ways and duplicated nodes through JOSM from Capad updates. I will check against the Gondwana data for this area.
12018-04-28 23:42:17 UTCWarin61 Hi,
You have made the path part of the park. If it is to included as part of the park it needs to be defined as an area - not just a simple a=way.
12018-04-20 23:49:42 UTCWarin61 Regarding relation 8222546 - running track.

Basic relationship rules;

Relation outer ways should not touch each other

Relation way should not have the same tags as the relation.

I have separated out the running track and correct it.
Ways 581481805, 581481801 and 5...
22018-04-21 11:58:10 UTCBrettM6000 Hi, Thanks for looking at that. I'm happy to be corrected. My motivation was to show the synthetic surface of the field while still showing the main track. Originally I had most ways merged by decided to separate them out. I think that 581481805 should be merged into the main running track because i...
32018-04-25 01:45:29 UTCWarin61 You look to know more about the details there .. so I'd pass it back to you :)

42018-04-25 14:07:14 UTCBrettM6000 Hi. I merged parts of the track back together. I based it on what I could see at the Queensland Sports and Athletics Centre. I've never used OSM Inspector but I'll have a look at it. Let me know if warnings appear after my changes. Thanks.
52018-04-25 22:06:55 UTCWarin61 I keep an eye on OSMinspector ... as it is fairly simple. There are other OA tools ... though they tend to be more picky and complex
12018-04-25 01:33:18 UTCWarin61 Hi,
Relation 8229235 - shingle ...
As it is a simple single way ... why make it a relation?
Also ... this change set makes it an 'inner' role - as a hole in a non existent outer ... makes no sense.
I have deleted the relation .... the way is already tagged with shingle.
12018-04-21 00:07:58 UTCWarin61 Hi,
This changset has made a relationship for a National Park cross itself. I corrected it. Be carefull with things- they can be connected to more than what you are doing.
12018-04-19 21:04:07 UTCWarin61 Hi,
Relation 8217299 (heath) only has inners - there is no outer way.
22018-04-21 03:27:53 UTCKeith Fixed
12018-04-18 21:43:18 UTCWarin61 Hi,
This area appears to have better mapping on the LPI Base Map - more detail on twists and turns.
Do you mind if I change your entries to comply with the LPI data?
22018-04-19 01:55:39 UTCdhx1 If I recall correctly, the tracks I added in this changeset were traced from satellite imagery. So you are right that some twists and turns were probably hidden under trees in the satellite data. Feel free to change that to LPI data. I would suggest however checking the changes against Digital Globe...
32018-04-19 01:59:17 UTCdhx1 I just compared, and the current cliff lines in OpenStreetMap are very poor compared to the LPI Base Map. I'd say all the cliffs could be changed automatically--just delete the existing ones and replace with accurate LPI cliffs.
42018-04-19 02:18:45 UTCWarin61 The LPI Imagery is at least as good as the Digital Globe Imagery .. and it does not go white if you over zoom.
And yes the LPI Base Map has difference to the LPI Imagery .. so it is worth keeping an eye on the imagery where you can see what is being mapped. So I would tend to use the LPI Imagery h...
12018-04-17 05:11:18 UTCWarin61 Reverted. Some has already been undone.
12018-04-16 21:29:10 UTCWarin61 Hi,
This is not closed. I'm not getting into that CAPAD thing so I leave it to you.
12018-04-14 22:46:40 UTCWarin61 And has damaged relations for Clarinda District, Sandringham District, South-Eastern Metropolitan Region and Southern Metropolitan Region.

Way 5795202496 is named!!!!!!!!!!!!! It is a continuation of Charman and Chesterville Rds - junction in middle of the Nepean Hwy.

Repaired. Be more care...
12018-04-13 23:07:58 UTCWarin61 Hi,
Permanent Ave is two way, not one way. The road is only divided at the roundabouts.

If you want to separate it at each roundabout then be aware that there are 2 routes that will need modification as well.
22018-04-13 23:13:52 UTCWarin61 Similar for Prince Edward Ave. It is two way .. not one way... the road is not divided.
32018-04-13 23:18:00 UTCWarin61 Take a look at the LPI Base Map for how they split the roads at roundabouts ... they don't split it along the length unless the roads are split too.
42018-04-16 09:09:50 UTCaharvey We should try to avoid dual carriage ways like this, it just adds unnecessary complexity for what gain?
52018-04-16 09:11:28 UTCaharvey Wardell Road is kind of broken now with the oneway next to the twoway segments.
12018-04-13 22:50:32 UTCWarin61 Hi,
Reverted one node - used by a relation for a protected area.
12018-04-11 04:57:25 UTCWarin61 This is how you contact someone in OSM - you go to a changeset and make comment on it - you will need to log in.

12018-04-11 04:44:31 UTCWarin61 Hi,
The buildings you have added as Way: 505450991 and Way: 505451322 do not appear to exist. They have a road through them tat appears to exist.
This follows from a Diary entry . As you can see I have named you, in part, in my r...
12018-04-10 22:37:14 UTCWarin61 Hi
The cycleway (way 573363541) .. does that connect to GIbson Street? They come close but have not connection in OSM .. so routing engines cannot rout a bicycle between the two.
12018-04-07 21:27:33 UTCWarin61 Hi, Welcom to OSM.
You have added 'Norman Crescent' ... this is named as 'Arkley Avenue' in the LPI Base Map. Are you certain of the name?
The road is also mapped as 2 one ways .. the road is a single 2 way road, it is not separated so a U turn can be done on it for instance. So it should be mapp...
22018-04-09 01:32:29 UTCaharvey Echoing what @Warin61 said, great start here, but these look like they should just be a single way down the road centre line (not a oneway way for each lane).
12018-04-03 21:01:20 UTCWarin61 Hi,
Beach relation 6554134 now has 0 width...
22018-04-03 22:31:53 UTCKeith How do you mean
32018-04-03 23:59:49 UTCWarin61 The beach has a length ... and a width.

The length is >0 meters
The width looks like 0 .. nothing.

As it is a relation, having 0 width is ridiculous. Arr the relation only has a surface=sand .. and is clearly part of the named beach. So I have combined the two into the one relation. This...
42018-04-04 00:54:49 UTCKeith I am assuming it is where i have have merged the nodes tof the inlet / river. Overlooked creating the sandbar/tidal zone. If you look at the warren river mouth that trace is incorrect in the sense that it is drawn as a water body to the ocean when it really part of a tidal / flood zone. That trace ...
52018-04-04 01:12:23 UTCWarin61 Firstly .. don't concentrate on 'display' but rather on correct tagging.
If you cannot find it on hte OSM wiki then try taginfo to see what others are using.
Alternative names? Cape?

As for the sometimes river/sand surface...
Humm river...
62018-04-04 01:46:38 UTCKeith If you look at Relation: Sand Dunes (8171005) reef beach wa i have marked it as natural sand name sand dunes . When you look at these dunes in OsmAnd+ live it actually displays the sand dunes with the correct fill. eg ridges with a sand pattern. In osm it just displays as a sand polygon.
72018-04-04 03:35:43 UTCWarin61 Do NOT use the name tag as a description!
"name=* tag is supposed to contain solely name"

If you must describe something use the tag "description=*"
82018-04-04 05:12:06 UTCKeith I will change to desc and see how it displays in OsmAnd. OsmAnd actually displays the polygon graphically correct which is a sand dune. Hopefully changing to desc will still display it graphically correct.
92018-04-04 06:29:48 UTCWarin61 Not about the 'display'. It is about being correct.
There are a large number of objects in OSM that have no name .. are they all to carry 'names' to describe them? Buildings? Tree areas? Grass areas? Water areas? Roundabouts? Toilets? All to carry descriptions of what they are in the 'name' space ...
102018-04-04 09:04:13 UTCKeith I use moving map software based upon when I look at the image on the screen and see that the arrow is in the sand dunes (the visual fill area of the polygon portrays that I am in the sand dunes) and I will be leaving the sand dunes shortly and arriving onto the beach area. When I am on that beach ar...
112018-04-04 09:22:07 UTCWarin61 Highways can have surface tags .. I use them, particularly on tracks. They can be displayed in OSMand .. some setting in its menus. Usually I just used 'unpaved' .. but it does distinguish between things like concrete .. so I'd hope it does something for sand too.

Thanks for repairing these.
12018-04-02 00:36:49 UTCWarin61 Hi,
You are changing the source of Way: 67803535. Yet you have not changed the tags on the way that say "source"="ABS_2006" and "attribution"="Based on Australian Bureau of Statistics data". These not are in error ... and should be changed.
22018-04-02 00:42:31 UTCWarin61 Err typo ...
'There are now in error ... and should be changed.'
32018-04-02 16:12:31 UTCkwametedros Hello, thanks for your comments. I will change the source info accordingly.
12018-03-31 21:26:22 UTCWarin61 Hi,
Is the D'Entrecasteaux National Park used for forestry? You have added the tag landuse=forest ... is it not just a land cover of trees .. not a land use?
22018-03-31 21:29:07 UTCWarin61 Oh .. not all of the area is covered by trees .. some of it is beach !
32018-03-31 23:42:50 UTCKeith I sort of inherited the setting for the NP. There seems to be a lack of presets for these types of things, european names like heath etc. In one way you have to build a series of layers over the top of that base layer like swamps etc and waterways. Big job
42018-04-01 02:47:16 UTCWarin61 1) Landuse=forestry was introduced for the first time with this changeset to this NP.

2) Trees don't usually start and stop at some administration boundary!
For example Lane Cove National Park with tree area https://www.o...
52018-04-01 04:18:01 UTCKeith Okay I have changed the current ones I am doing to land cover. Unfortunately there is a lot of GIS data from years ago. There is the question of old boundarys (private property) that do not exist anymore that have been uploaded years ago. Yeagarup state forest has been taken in by the D'Entrecasteau...
62018-04-01 07:36:27 UTCWarin61 OSM specifies we don't use copyright data .. the source for D"Etrecasteaux NP is tagged as CAPAD 2016 .. think that is the best that can be done unless you have another source that is usable in OSM (non copyright or allowed by agreement).

After using landcover tags in a few NP I have come ...
72018-04-01 07:45:47 UTCWarin61 Without the tree area you can now see some problems ... shows the state forest is still tagged .. as that is now part of the NP it can be retagged/removed. I'd retag it so that mappers can still see it, possibly from landuse=f...
82018-04-01 07:59:32 UTCKeith I started mapping the 4wd tracks in WA in 2001.

12018-03-11 20:32:54 UTCWarin61 Hi,
For things like parks use the LPI Base Map - it has the legal boundaries and names of the park. I have changed Rathmines Park to match the Base Map rather than imagery.
22018-03-27 03:12:03 UTCaharvey I think it's fine to use the imagery, in fact even preferable, after all the imagery reflect what's on the ground, which is what we should be mapping, not what the legal boundaries of the land parcels designated for the park.
32018-03-27 20:42:41 UTCWarin61 It can be hard to determine what is part of the park.
Is the Catalina Conference Center part of the Park?
Is the foot path to Starboard Close part of the park? And, if so .. how wide is the parks area there?
These things are easier to determine using the base map.
42018-03-28 15:12:25 UTCjkiht9 Next time I'll use both the imagery and LPI base map. I briefly visited the area in person and I mapped the limited bits I saw.
12018-03-17 20:26:35 UTCWarin61 Hi,
Some of these ways are used by other relations .. not just woods. This results in those relations being open ... and they need fixing... eg relation 3113565
As you now use another account .. I think this changeset should be reverted.
22018-03-18 01:05:05 UTCMulti Pass Hi,
Thanks for pointing out this issue. I didn't download the entire Lake Burbury relation when I modified it, hence it wasn't picked up by JOSM validator before I uploaded this changeset. It is a very simple fix, and I have also downloaded and rechecked the map data and there doesn't appear to be ...
12018-03-14 05:27:12 UTCnevw Hi Pwnedragon19
you have added too much detail with the Ashmont Pond Canal and water supply.
Just the real stuff on the ground is sufficient, thanks.
22018-03-16 05:56:46 UTCWarin61 Deleted the canal and water supply. Crosses boundaries in LPI Base Map, not eveident in LPI Imagery. Real stuff only in OSM please.

The buildings should be 'square' - use the S key in iD to do this.

12018-03-11 00:11:19 UTCWarin61 Hi,
Relation 6361203 .. was tagged as a treed area .. you have added tags
name=Murchison Dam and waterway=dam ...

No .. this very large area is not a dam. I have remove these tags and reinstated natural=wood.
22018-03-11 04:14:32 UTCgreyim Oops I wondered about that Warin ... except the dam is not a wood either, its water!? -
32018-03-11 09:41:13 UTCWarin61 The area is ~ 100km east to west and ~ 50 km north south. Bit crinkly with edges and inner holes .. but it is a bit big for a dam.

Think you meant to target something else ... certainly made this area look as if the sea had risen a lot. :)
42018-03-12 02:15:55 UTCgreyim Oops i see Warin, I mistook the woodland inner hole for the dam lake itself, which is not so well defined. Especially the southern part of the lake, it's in 2 halves not sure why.... Graham

The entered buildings are not 'square' ... i.e. 90 degree corners.

Of course not usefull for those buildings that are not square.

However some are casually drawn, and id didn't permit complete precision. If i'd used josm and spent more time then it could be slightly better.

However all considered I think these are quite representative of the actual buildings and *way* better than wh...

32018-02-14 04:33:38 UTCTheSwavu PT assistant adds some validation rules to JOSM, it just speeds up the trial and error process. You still need to know what you are doing.

42018-02-18 20:55:50 UTCWarin61 Yay. Valid according to osminspector. PT assistant thought it was valid before osminspector but more changes were needed. Don't think PT assistant was worth it for me. I do have some more to do before I'm happy with it. I'll do the original relationship and then do a diary entry on my thoughts on ho...

You have broken a administration boundary .. many times. That is going to involve a considerable amount of work and time to fix. It may be easiest to simply revert your changes to anything to do...
12018-02-12 07:46:06 UTCWarin61 Hi,
Using the base map you can see that this road leads to a farm (the homestead [ranch] has the name Wyoming) - so it is not 'unclassified' but 'service'.
Also the base map contains road names .. you can see this one has no name so noname=yes is a suitable tag. Note you must zoom in to say a 50m ...
22018-02-12 16:57:00 UTCspjaquish Hi Warin61,
Thank you for the advise on tagging, especially as it relates to homesteads and service roads.
I am at times apprehensive to use the noname=yes tag as I'm unsure if a road actually has no name in reality, or if it has a name but we are unable corroborate it with a resource at the mome...
32018-02-12 21:05:14 UTCWarin61 Any unnamed road could have a name added later. All 'we' have is the LPI Base Map (unless you survey .. and even than the sign could have been removed) so I use that .. and I also tag source:noname=LPI Base Map Feb 2018, This is the truth .. and 'we' can do no more. Adding fixmes all around the plac...

Thank you for taking the time to answer my question! This information will be very useful, and hopefully make me a better OSM mapper moving forward!
12018-02-11 20:55:29 UTCWarin61 Hi,
Welcome to OSM.
These 'Horse Paddocks' ... you have tagged them as;
'buildings' that is an error.
'surface=ground' ... grass is a better description.
'name=Horse Paddock' .. that is a description .. not a name, so description=horse paddock is better.
Take a look on the OSMwiki?
12018-02-09 21:02:57 UTCWarin61 Hi,
Assume you are local to this area?
There needs to be a resolution between
Way: Betley Cycle Track (338425982) [which presently crosses itself] and the
Dunolly Havelock Cycle Trail (346449700) that looks to use parts of the Betley Cycle Track.
22018-02-10 03:56:05 UTCmodellerau No, I not local, but using OSM Inspector, I corrected an Error and noticed may other warnings. These were mainly crossing ways, which I added an intersection at each one, thus removing the warnings. As to your concern, I cannot provide a resolution
32018-02-10 05:29:21 UTCWarin61 Errr .. I think that is the wrong thing to do for this way.

While it may remove the 'errors' in osminspector .. it may confuse the real problem here.
Best to contact a local and have them look at it.
12018-02-09 20:04:48 UTCWarin61 Deleted Way: 255733717. Poor duplication of Way: 255733720.
In this area the imagery that should be used is the LPI Imagery - better resolution and positional accuracy.
22018-02-09 21:41:37 UTCjaecord Thanks for the catch, again! I fixed the geometry of the pier and deleted the duplicate way. When I first started working on these piers, I didn't check for the LPI Imagery until later in the day. I will go back through piers I created and try to catch any that should be improved. Thanks again!
32018-02-09 22:25:40 UTCWarin61 No worries.
I had intended to do it myself ... but you were too quick for me! :)
These show up on osminspector as area problems, that is how I come across them.. mainly looking for my own errors.
42018-02-09 22:35:32 UTCjaecord Oh nice! I just started playing around in OSM Inspector but didn't check out that Areas View, thanks for the tip. I'll try make more use out of that tool for sure.
12018-02-09 21:03:09 UTCWarin61 Hi,
Welcome to OSM.
For this park ... the park encompasses the footway so the park boundaries don't stop with the footway. If you look at the LPI Base Map you can see the legal boundaries for this park so you can get the boundaries right. I have made these changes. Take a look at it.

12018-02-06 20:44:34 UTCWarin61 Hi.
This changeset has caused problems with a beach area.
Also the source and attribution tags do not reflect the new source. Is this source better than the old source? And are you mapping the hi tide mark, low tide mark or some other water level?
22018-02-06 20:47:43 UTCderyadilmen Hello, sorry, thank you for the correction. I am trying to map high water level mark as it has mentioned on wiki coastline page, but I am editing the coastline for the first time, greatly appreciated comments
12018-02-06 20:25:45 UTCWarin61 Hi,

12018-02-04 03:42:23 UTCkeithonearth Hi Warin61, are you familiar with the area that had been tagged area=yes? Because it seems to me that it is more accurate to tag it as an area.

While the entire area isn't accessible due to the vegetable hawkers' stalls, it's not just the periphery that is publicly accessible.

As such I'm ad...

32018-02-05 04:08:57 UTCkeithonearth Hi Warin, thanks for your quick reply. I hope my initial message didn't come across as rude. After sending it I was thinking I could have been more polite. Sorry about that.

You make some good points. And I agree, that the way I've done it is not ideal, but I do think it is an improvement.

12018-02-02 22:44:40 UTCWarin61 Hi,
Way 552423085 you have tagged as 'unclassified'. If you look on the LPI Base Map you can see it is of lesser class that the other roads .. so I take it as a 'track'. Further you can see it has no name, so I have changed it to highway=track and added noname=yes, source=LPI Base Map for track and...
22018-02-02 23:21:50 UTCspjaquish Hi Warin61,
Thank you for your comment, and for reviewing my edits to the map! At times it can be tricky to determine the highway tags, especially in forested regions close to towns. But I see now why "track" would have been a better suited tag for this road segment.
Also, thank you fo...

Red Hill railway station (node 2522880885) - Is there actually anything left of this railway station left on the ground?
22018-01-22 10:20:50 UTCstevage No station building, think there might be an information board.
12018-01-21 21:18:35 UTCWarin61 Is there actually anything left of this railway station left on the ground?

12018-01-20 08:51:37 UTCaharvey It's marked as a shared zone on the ground. When the markets are on it's more like a pedestrian, when it's weekday it's probably more like service or residential.

12017-12-10 03:55:06 UTCWarin61 Hi,
1) The change set comment "change" does not describe what you are doing. This has been noted before yet you continue to use it.

42018-01-19 19:47:30 UTCWarin61 The few changes I have looked at have some justification. The problem I find is the conflict with previous mapping.
Perhaps a block?
12018-01-18 20:34:29 UTCWarin61 Hi,
The relation for Red Cliffs Primary School (7910556, v1) shares segments of outer ways. That is not good. It is also tagged as a school and a park.. it cannot be both! OSM like the have one entry for one feature.

I have made the southern way the school and the northern way a park .. as that...
22018-01-18 21:08:42 UTCGlenhope1 Yeah someone originally added it as two parts, ie, the school oval was incorrectly marked as a separate park. I merged the areas. You're right, It should not have the park tag.
12018-01-14 22:01:18 UTCaharvey here you added the opening hours of the royal botanic gardens as closing at sunset, however the signs at the gates actually list an exact time for each month of the year which coincides with sunset. While I'm not too fussed but would prefer to map the signposted monthly times, what do you think?
22018-01-14 23:19:24 UTCWarin61 Fine, that info must have came off a sign at one of the gates .. update it.
12018-01-14 20:10:18 UTCWarin61 Hi,
This boundary is not closed (it does not form a loop to enclose an area). Are you going to finish it? Or should it just be deleted?
22018-01-14 22:22:47 UTCTuanIfan I'll do it tonight
32018-01-14 23:53:22 UTCTheSwavu And while you're at it: what is the source of this data?
42018-01-15 04:33:59 UTCTuanIfan @TheSwavu: it is based on the Interactive Mapping site of the Brisbane City council. I'll add the source later in my future edits.
52018-01-15 09:41:50 UTCTheSwavu OK, so that explains the Brisbane ones. Where did the ones around Bundaberg, that you put in, come from? And how about dropping a message on talk-au ( to let other mappers know that you are planning an import (which is step two of the guidelines https...
62018-01-15 10:00:56 UTCTuanIfan Hi Swavu,

Bundaberg boundaries were drawn quite a few years ago, during a few months i was in hospital. I drew them on JOSM everyday based on Bundaberg Regional council's mapping site as well.

That's great to know all the steps. I haven't read the guidelines until now.

Just a small questio...
72018-01-15 10:08:37 UTCTheSwavu It applies to anything you copy from another map or dataset.

It also means we have a problem with the Bundaberg boundaries because we don't have permission to use them in OSM.
82018-01-15 10:16:08 UTCTuanIfan Thanks for your clear explanation.
12018-01-14 19:36:53 UTCWarin61 Your changeset comment says nothing...

12018-01-11 20:18:14 UTCTheSwavu This changeset has been reverted.

12018-01-02 13:04:16 UTCmueschel Hi,
you used the key "gone:railway" for this railway. 'gone' is none of the usual lifecycle prefixes - If the rails have been removed, it should be "railway = razed", see

22018-01-02 22:20:21 UTCWarin61 I agree 'gone: is not 'usual' - still thinking about it. I used this as a temporary hold for transfer of data to Open Historical Map (I hope).

'railway=razed' may only apply to track, not stations and other railway things. I think it is a poor tag! I would much rather have something like 'gone:'...
32018-01-02 22:24:48 UTCmueschel "razed:" is also quite common:

For these long-gone objects it might indeed be better to remove them completly, but others might disagree.
42018-01-02 22:47:16 UTCWarin61 "others might disagree" ... Yes .. 'they' will disagree! However if a good alternative is offered (such as OHM) then 'we' might get agreement, at least the vast majority? Fingers crossed.

razed: is not on the wiki .. probably because the vast majority would 'disagree' with it :)
52018-01-03 23:50:41 UTCWarin61 I have now copied this railway line to OHM .. and it is there nicely.

Sections of this line I have tagged 'ruined:' other sections 'nonexistent:' and the southern platform/station abandoned:

Not firm on the ruined: nor nonexistent: ... see how discussions on the tagging list go. Then I may ma...
62018-01-04 20:20:28 UTCmueschel ruins: is used more often than ruined: and nonexistent: is not used anywhere else.

Why not add razed: to the lifecycle prefixes? This should not be a problem, the page is just a plain list of used tags, not proposing any. Used already >>1000 times and would be a good fit, also because xzy=...

Way 7839620 has a duplicate_segment from node 5302648261 to node 5302648250. The usual mthod of doing voids in buildings is make a relation with an outer way and an inner way.. However you look to be making a building consisting of parts - see
12017-12-24 22:47:33 UTCWarin61 HI,

I have changed the OVO building ... it may not be the way you intended but it now matches what OSM 3D wants ... in particular building:part and a building relationship have been added along with a height estimation based on 3m per floor. Please take a look at it and make changes to suit.

Some of these highways are not 'connected' - that is they don't link up with other highways. This means it is impossibly for a router to use them to form a route. If they are closed to the public (motor vehicle/foot etc) then use access tags to specify that, don't leave them disconnected. If ...

12017-12-13 05:19:57 UTCSunfishtommy In this changeset you outlined areas that seem to be a town and labeled them as airdrome=airport. The town of Balimo. I am going to fix it, but double check your changes residential areas should really be landuse=residential.
22017-12-13 05:25:27 UTCSunfishtommy Also I just double checked the place where you put the Balimo airport in this changeset is not where it is actually located.
32017-12-13 07:51:49 UTCWarin61 Thanks for spotting this error! I wonder how I made it... I certainly would not have added all that wikipedia and other detailed tags .. I'll add those to the correct airport .. but my error.

relation 7676161 (farmland) has had it only outer way removed - now consists only of inner ... should this relation be removed???
22018-03-02 23:22:44 UTCEwen Hill Sorry, just saw this. If you think it needs rectifying, please do.
12017-11-28 21:44:05 UTCWarin61 Hi, welcome to OSM.

You have removed the name 'Manns Beach' from an administrative area ... Why? Note this is the name of an area .. it may take its name from a beach ... so it may be larger than the beach itself.

Your changes may have made the ways 'self intersect' .. but some one has correc...
12017-11-25 20:53:18 UTCWarin61 HI,
Welcome to OSM.

The way 540628661 tagged 'landuse=residential' has some problems.
First I cannot see it with the source you have of LIP Imagery .. but it does show up with bing - so I'll add the source tag to the way 540628661 - that will make it clear to anyone else who comes along. Err ....
12017-11-21 21:36:05 UTCWarin61 Hi,
These wetlands would be better mapped as a relation.
Using relations would allow the use of the river bank as part of the outer way.

At present these generate errors on OSMinspector - ways with shared segments.
22017-11-22 15:44:42 UTCArietigue Hi,
Thanks, I'll look into that.

12017-11-19 20:04:36 UTCWarin61 Hi,
The name key should not be used to describe the function. Use the description key if you must. E.G. 'Pit Lane' way 116586618.
12017-11-13 21:37:16 UTCWarin61 Hi,
The relation 7723473 - building=house has 3 outers that touch. This is flagged as an error in OSMinspector. They do look like all one building - so a single way rather than a relation?
22017-11-14 05:29:36 UTCJoel Hansen Yeah this is probably due to the way the iD editor handles merging.

Anyway I fixed it.
12017-11-13 02:04:02 UTCWarin61 Hi
In Australia the default language is English. OSM tag the name=* tag to be the same as the name:en=* to be the same (in Australia). Yet you have them as different. Just use the name=* tag. If there is a local name or alt name then use the tags loc_name=* or alt_name=*
12017-11-12 21:50:35 UTCWarin61 Hi,
Relations don't like touching outer - you have 2 touching buildings... in this relation 7722753.
Do they really touch?
If so is there is 'knock through' to provide passage between the two? Then they would be considered one building.
Or if they don't touch at the walls then separate them - ...
22017-11-13 04:11:32 UTCJoel Hansen No it's all one building, Just a different roof.

I've fixed it now.
12017-11-12 21:44:38 UTCWarin61 Hi,
The Lalor Library relation 7725472 has 2 building that touch one another, there roles are 'outer' in the relation. Relations don't like touching outers.
So .. do the buildings really touch? If so is there not a 'knock through' to provide passage between the two - thus making one building? O...
22017-11-13 12:43:03 UTCTuanIfan Well it seems the two buildings are interconnected and there is a path between the two. The eastern building is older and is retained, while the left side one was built later as part of the enlargement of the Library.

22017-11-10 09:33:00 UTCSam Wilson Thanks!

I've only just discovered route relations, and that each direction is a separate relation. Have to go back and re-do some I did a couple of years ago.

I wrote a diary entry about the 158, with pics:
32017-11-10 09:35:08 UTCSam Wilson Oh, and I just noticed that you're doing highway=bus_stop as well as public_transport=platform... oops. I'll fix mine up.
12017-11-08 21:01:53 UTCWarin61 Hi,
Relation 7712903 - highway=service ... does not need to be a relation. It is a simple area that continues under the roof (so the roof is not an inner). It does not need a label .. and the star mart has no role in the relationship. Deleted the relationship and put highway=service on the way. Fix...
22017-11-10 13:19:15 UTCTuanIfan Hi Warin 61,

Thanks for your explanation. Greatly appreciate your help and review of those edits :)
12017-11-01 21:16:53 UTCWarin61 These 'lakes' cannot be relied on to have water .. so the tag intermittent=yes should be used.
12017-11-01 21:09:34 UTCWarin61 Hi,
Way: 537154004 (building=roof) that you added here crosses it self... that is rather confusing and does not really happen in the real world.
Take a look at it.
22017-11-01 21:18:22 UTCTuanIfan Hi Warin61, you're right. I was thinking if it was a footpath connecting two buildings or it was an extension of the church itself. Anw, i'll visit the place again to find out .
12017-10-31 05:19:47 UTCtonyf1 Hi. I don't know if it is a town or a suburb but I suspect that this is a controversial change that may require consultation with the mapping community.
22017-10-31 07:02:58 UTCWarin61 Take a look at the Sydney relation:(5729534) .. that is a suburb.

If you want Parramatta as a city/town etc then maybe look at what has been done for Sydney as a city?

But I'd recommend contact on the Australian mailing list first..

In the mean time I have chan...
32017-11-02 06:05:17 UTCaharvey +1 with discussing this change.

42017-11-02 07:05:42 UTCtonyf1 Interestingly, closer to home for me, Dandenong is a town - Node: Dandenong (67340420) and Node: Berwick (2166885522) is a suburb despite being further out. Both were towns before greater Melbourne absorbed them.

22017-10-29 22:14:39 UTCRichardA Thanks, feel free to fix it. The beach wasn't there at all when I started, nor was the track to get down to it. The polygons got messy with 'trees on the beach' and I did the best I could.
12017-10-19 22:45:29 UTCWarin61 Hi,
Relation \t7660949 - highway=pedestrian .... with one member as an inner ... is wrong!

I think the area is a tree area .. and should be simply tagged on the way 533296035 as natural=wood and landcover=trees. The relation 7660949 can be deleted.

The relation 7660948 highway=pedestrian ....
22017-10-20 00:28:00 UTCaharvey PS. maybe also try editing in JOSM, personally I find it easier to deal with relations compared with the iD editor.
32017-10-22 10:14:16 UTCJoel Hansen OK, I tried the changes you suggested. Not sure if it's what you wanted exact to how you said.

I have tried JOSM, but find it a bit too complex, that's why I used iD.
42017-10-22 21:31:14 UTCWarin61 Some comments;

The tag "area=yes" is not required.

The Relation: 7670619 has one member Way: 533296035 as "inner". But an inner of what??? Water Park Wet 'n' Wild Gold Coast? Retail Movie World? Village Boundary Oxenford? County Boundary Gold Coast City? State Boundary Que...
52017-10-25 02:33:04 UTCJoel Hansen Yeah ID is a bit different. But I think I got it!
62017-10-25 09:38:06 UTCWarin61 Good Luck - keep mapping.
12017-10-22 01:05:13 UTCWarin61 Hi
Name of Way: Gravesend-Gineroi Road (104487552) looks wrong. I have added alt_name from LPI Base Map of Elcombe Road .. but I think it should be name=Elcombe Road .. as it is on the southern end.
12017-10-21 22:57:14 UTCWarin61 Hi,

What 'alignment' were you trying to fix?

By moving node 4067681594 you have caused the administration boundary of Coffs Harbour to cross itself and not be in the correct place.
I have fixed the admin boundary and done my best around that node to the coast line and the beach relations.
22017-10-22 00:21:43 UTCxdiamondx The previous alignment of the beach was not correct. It crossed itself and I assume someone that worked on it previously did not notice the beach was connected to it which resulted in a pointy (unnatural) section of beach.
12017-10-19 22:35:49 UTCWarin61 Hi
The way 533298379 - farmland that you added crosses it self - along Fogarty's Gap Road. Generates an error in OSMinspector of 'shared segment'. In this instance I thing you can safely remove the appropriate nodes from the way without any impact on what you are mapping.
12017-10-16 22:02:12 UTCWarin61 Hi,
Why do you need to store on the data base where bing hi res imagery is? Looking at way 309325239. The do not contribute any usefull features. And the presence of hi res imagery changes over time.
12017-10-16 21:31:08 UTCWarin61 Hi,
Why do you need to store on the data base where bing hi res imagery is? Looking at way 309325239. Should not you remove these rather than clutter the data base?
22017-10-16 21:53:40 UTCde vries Don't know exactly. But I can think of a few use cases. Outlines like this are are very common around the world at places were you can't expect hires imagery everywhere.
Also note that I didn't add them, I just improved the geometry of them.

Happy mapping!
32017-10-16 21:58:49 UTCWarin61 The presence of hi res imagery changes from time to time .. 'We' now have that 'Digital Globe Premium' imagery that looks to be good most places in png.
12017-10-16 01:47:34 UTCWarin61 Hi,

Thought I'd submitted this, but either I didn't or it disappeared.

The names should not be descriptive, but the real nam...
22017-10-14 14:41:13 UTCMSF-Fieldco Thanks for the tips. I moved out of Mt. Hagen in early 2016, so I won't be updating the area anymore. It seems that it is in good hands anyway, thanks for keeping the map up to date.
12017-10-12 21:19:08 UTCWarin61 No.

Part, and only part, of these streets are used as the boundaries of Parramatta and Westmead councils. So they have to be, at least, in 2 bits.

Use the LPI Base Map to view this information - the pail dotted lines.

22017-10-13 22:16:47 UTCaharvey @Daryl Radivokevic Unfortuantly the iD editor doesn't warn you when your changes affect a relation, so just try to watch out for how changes will affect relations too. When you go to save your changes in iD it will list what's changed and if it lists relations that you didn't intend to change you ca...
12017-10-05 23:45:33 UTCWarin61 Hi
you have tagged way 489615722 as an abandoned. track. Yet it connects to a village and may be used by the locals as a walking track. I have added a new Way: 530426654 that is close to your abandoned track. See what you think.

12017-10-04 21:28:51 UTCWarin61 Hi,
Way: 528707198 is self intersecting. That then causes relation 7622059 to have an intersecting segment.
You should separate the way into 2 ways - an inner and an outer.
22018-03-02 23:25:17 UTCEwen Hill I beleive this is no longer an issue
12017-10-04 21:24:42 UTCWarin61 The relation 7618908... has an inner touch the outer at node 5140696134.

This should not be done. Suggest that the node be removed from the outer way.
22017-10-05 00:08:08 UTCTheSwavu Inner way only touches outer way a one point. This is a valid multipolygon, no need to edit.
12017-09-26 22:16:20 UTCWarin61 Way 511474998 - named "Vacant'. Surely that is a description? Not a name.
12017-09-26 14:25:04 UTCHarald Hartmann Hello Warin61. At you have tagged `dissused:highway` instead of `disused:highway`, right? #typo

Thanks, yes typo.
12017-09-24 11:08:54 UTCaharvey I strongly disagree with this edit.

A feature tagged as source=survey should take precedence over the LPI Base Map and where they differ the ground survey should be what is in OSM.

Take as a concrete example, it was carefully mapped out via s...

Way 350304629 is tagged as both a water way and a highway. You say that the 'trek' goes on top of the river. So physically this way is a river.
If you want to mark a 'trek' then perhaps a route relation can be used in OSM. Or if it is a ferry (or what passes for a ferry) then a ferry route? ...
22017-09-23 19:58:24 UTCMSF-Fieldco Hello. Yes, the road at a certain moment gets into the river for a while. I guess your comment is correct. Please feel free to correct as needed!

12017-09-20 23:20:26 UTCWarin61 Is the area (way 57745482) really named kunai patch .. or is this a description?

12017-09-19 22:36:57 UTCWarin61 Hi,

22017-09-12 00:08:24 UTCaharvey Agree with Warin61 here, a feature in OSM should represent something physically on the ground (I know this isn't always the case, but generally should apply).

42017-09-12 05:09:10 UTCaaronsta Following up from this, originally these were created as the roundabouts themselves formed good starting points, but are way to inaccurate to align the images.

52017-09-12 05:13:15 UTCaaronsta It may be appropriate to remove these lines, as I am yet to complete mapping the area and may need to use them again it could be useful to retain. The lines now have no tagged attributes aside from the note=*
62017-09-12 05:20:31 UTCaharvey The issue is you're using OSM to save data really only useful/specific to you. As you can imagine if everyone started using OSM to tag their personal bookmarks it would clutter the database and make editing real map data more difficult.

The building (way521899882) that you have added ... you have included in relation Elizabeth Hills (5538037). There is no need to include it separately as it is already surrounded, and therefore included, by this relation.
12017-09-02 22:35:18 UTCWarin61 Hi,
The 'rules' are that multipolygons outer ways cannot touch their inner ways. So these buildings multipolygons generate error messages. Looking at them closely in bing I see that the corners don't quite touch, so I have made them into simple ways. See what you think.
22017-09-03 04:42:17 UTCMartini097 ah okay - my bad. thanks for fixing them :)

And I wish you the very best of luck with it!
12017-08-15 23:30:18 UTCWarin61 It is WRONG.

The admin boundary comes the NSW Government LPI. If you want to change the coast line then change that .. not the admin boundary!!!!

22017-08-15 23:39:12 UTCxdiamondx I looked up the "OSM Example" for Harbors - Howth port and it comes with the administrative boundary attached to the coastline.

Do you want me to change it back?
32017-08-15 23:52:30 UTCxdiamondx @Warin61 I fixed the boundary. Sorry for the problem
42017-08-16 00:00:16 UTCWarin61 Thanks
The Admin boundary would be correct. It could be the high tide mark .. in a certain year? Would have to read the legal papers to see. I am against having the admin boundaries use physical features - leads to this kind of problem.

62017-08-29 12:13:00 UTCaharvey I think we need to have a bit more of a discussion on this. If people want the LPI Admin Boundaries they can go to LPI and get it. The LPI boundaries aren't the official legal definition of these boundaries, they are just the LPIs representation.

I think we should do what makes sense for OSM and ...
72017-08-29 23:31:27 UTCWarin61 Coastlines and rivers change over time. And so too do some roads. I'd think a legal boundary that uses a feature will specify a date? Or maybe the date is taken from when the document was made?
By separating an admin boundary from other things in OSM it allows these other things to be altered by m...
12017-08-15 23:45:27 UTCWarin61 How did you come to tag these as "landuse=residential" ?

They are buildings! Tag them building=house in these cases.
22017-08-29 12:06:27 UTCaharvey @Warin61, this is just my opionion here but this is @Nhadaya's first edit to OSM and I feel your comment could have been worded in a slightly more welcoming way.

@Nhadaya welcome to OSM and thanks for contributing, you can check out the beginners guide at
32017-08-29 23:22:04 UTCWarin61 Did not mean to put you off Nhadaya. But this is the second instance I found of this kind of thing occurring .. so I would like to know how you came to tag them as landuse=residential. That may help avoid further confusion?
12017-08-29 22:51:51 UTCWarin61 Hi,
When you do a relationship .. don't put the same tags on the ways making up the relationship.

In this case you have the tags leisure=track and sport=horse_racing on all the ways in the relationship and on the relationship itself. In this case the tags are only needed on the relationship.
12017-08-29 22:35:07 UTCWarin61 The relation 7516802 has overlapping ways. And it looks like other relationships too use these overlapping ways.

Would it not be simpler to revert the relevant changeset? .

I'll revert this one and see what it was like before you changed it.

Ok .. done. Outline is doubled up - fixed. The...
22017-08-30 08:36:14 UTCTheSwavu Reverted changesets:


So as to revert change set #51492776, which was a unsuccessful revert that left the data in a bad way.

OSMinspector says 'touching rings' .. as this is roof outlines I'll just reduce the footprint so they don't quite touch.
12017-08-23 22:14:26 UTCWarin61 Hi
You have Way 479420783 tagged as industrial power plant yet the imagery shows a parking lot. You have that tagged on Way: 71190511. So what it is? If the parking lot is on top of the power plant then use the layer tag to indicate it?
22017-08-24 05:13:31 UTCCloCkWeRX Maybe its confused with Southbank Zone Substation; which is nearby?
12017-08-18 23:47:35 UTCWarin61 The relationship inner way touches the outer way ... that is not allowed.

Is the wood not part of the park?
Yes.. That would mean that it is not an 'inner' in the relationship and the relationship becomes a one member relationship that can be replaced by putting the tags on the outer way.
22017-08-19 07:09:44 UTCjonorossi Thanks Warin61, I spent a good 30mins reading the wiki because I wasn't sure I was doing things right but couldn't really find the info I was after, I then came across OSMI to see if it reported anything and I realised it is batch updated, so fixed some other local problems.

Sorry I don't quite f...
32017-08-19 14:47:35 UTCjonorossi I've resolved the problem. I missed the sign naming the bushland Windemere Road Bushland Refuge, so have now separated the two areas.

I'd still be interested to get a response for my previous question for next time.
42017-08-20 00:22:53 UTCWarin61 In a relation ;

An outer way cannot touch nor cross any other way in the relation.

An inner way can touch another inner way (sometimes OSMi reports this as an error .. but it is technically allowed).

That help?
If you can avoid using a relation - that makes things easier/simpler.
52017-08-20 10:28:26 UTCjonorossi Apoligies for not being clearer, I understand the inner way not touching the outer now, I saw this one reported in OSMi. I was confused earlier because you said " putting the tags on the outer way" for both, however natural=wood needs to be on the inner way.
62017-08-20 11:13:40 UTCWarin61 No need for apologies. Some, at least, is my fault! Much easier over a beer.

What I meant was if the relationship is deleted leaving simple ways, then the remaining way/s get the relevant tags from the old relationship.

If the wood is part of the park then it gets included in the park - it w...
72017-08-20 11:44:39 UTCjonorossi Cheers (with a virtual beer), I think I understand now. For example, you'd use an inner relationship if there was a residential area in the middle of a national park, since it wouldn't actually be national park. All those multiploygon nature reserves with relationships that were automatically import...
82017-08-21 13:21:15 UTCnevw There is a lot to learn about relations and after getting a good understanding of those, you will find most of the rest is much easier.

102017-08-21 16:39:11 UTCnevw Yes, guilty :)
Most are from CAPAD data and I prefer to add in the form they are gazetted. The parts where they share segments with nearby areas can be difficult to sort out.

Please .. where you find a way with source LPI that has been simplified using JOSM to an error of <3m ... leave it alone .. unless you have more accurate data.
12017-08-15 23:37:27 UTCWarin61 The building boundary (way in OSM terms) crosses itself ... that is an outside wall crosses over another outside wall ...
I have fixed this - try not to do it again?
12017-08-10 22:58:04 UTCWarin61 Hi again.
Shared ways. Fixed into relation.
The mapping is of the building - not the way it is constructed, nor the configuration of the roof.

Any links to why you don't use a relationship to map building voids?

My reference
22017-08-11 22:46:34 UTCSanityChek Multipolygons can cause issues with particular roofs, etc. Whereas coincident, but non re-entrant, nodes should be OK in most practical usages. And as far as 'levels' is concerned, they could do with some consistency - since building:height is to be avoided, In this instance I was only interested in...
12017-08-09 23:11:57 UTCWarin61 Hi,
Way 513763820 - building part level=3 ... generates errors - "duplicate_segment" where you go to make the inner. This should be done as a relation - with inner and outer ways ...
22017-08-10 00:10:14 UTCSanityChek Multipolygon seems to cause more problems than it solves, and particularly when the shape of the building pushes towards the representation used (eg the 'seam' is there in the roof) practicality should win over semantic navel gazing.
12017-08-07 22:45:26 UTCWarin61 Hi,
I think you are mapping the buildings? This is done from the roof outline and they are tagged building= See

The name=* is not used to describe an object - that is a no no. See

12017-07-28 23:11:30 UTCWarin61 Question:

22017-06-28 22:40:47 UTCWarin61 Arr I see!
When you joined blackbutt rd together .. you should not have ... a section of it is used by those relations, joining the rd together means long sections of the rd lead these relations off into nowhere.
I have corrected it by separating balckbutt rd back into the required sections.

32017-06-26 23:06:30 UTCWarin61 I have already made the changes.

The buildings were 'semidetached' sharing a common wall between each pair. By knocking through the common wall they become one building. So I have mapped them as one building. Each part of the building can be mapped using the tag building:part=yes if required.

The LPI base Map can be used to determine road types .. these would be tracks/unclassified. Edited. They might be service, service=driveway if you see then that way too.
12017-06-23 03:54:43 UTCaharvey Looks like already existed before, we should keep that way and just update the geometry. Or at the very least delete the old way when adding one with geometry not snapped to the road.

22017-06-22 23:12:35 UTCWarin61 Relation 7109263 the same comment.

Why are you using relations for these things? KISS.
12017-06-22 01:56:51 UTCWarin61 Relations don't share outer segments. See OSMinspector

These houses look to be separate buildings.

Needs fixing.
12017-06-21 23:24:13 UTCWarin61 Multipolygons don't do shared ways on outers..
So these might be best as simple separate ways.
Doing this generates a warning - overlapping railways. I think that is ok - platforms do share segments.
22017-06-23 07:44:15 UTCaharvey I'm okay with them being separate ways.

Physically the whole area is one platform, but logically (in terms of the network and naming) each side is a different platform.

So for simplicity, I'm happy with these being separate ways, without the relation with a shared border that way we have tags ...

It is simply 3 areas - that can be 3 individual ways. Easy. And then you have no shared segments in the relation/way.

22017-05-13 10:40:08 UTCWarin61 The other problem is the unknown source of this changeset.

22017-05-29 22:40:56 UTCWarin61 Way 496461665 - wood crosses itself ... this is not good. Ways forming areas should have a clear inner and outer .. when they cross it becomes difficult to determine which bits are inner and outer.

12017-05-07 09:59:38 UTCWarin61 This source does not give you;

You have also used the name to give a function. As some of these areas have a name (LPI Base Map) there is a problem here.

Another problem .. are these parking areas? that is what the renders are picking up on. OS...
22017-05-07 13:44:34 UTCRhubarb I drive up and down the Hume Highway a few times a year. I use aerial imagery (in this case LPI NSW from 2016/07/13) to draw the geometry, and my own notes and photos for other details.
In this case, fee, toilet, drinking water, hgv access, and other information was from survey / local knowledge (s...
32017-05-07 13:47:11 UTCRhubarb * I've given the name to give a function to more identify which area is for cars, and which is for caravans / hgv - as many rest areas here have separate parking areas adjacent to each other. But I can see how this could be in error.
42017-05-07 22:37:05 UTCWarin61 Three things;
1) HGV/caravan .. this in present OSM terms should be done using the access tags .. IIRC you have hgv=yes .. but nothing banning other things .. so should add access=no to ban everything else. I'd be tempted put this on the road/parking? This should then work for GPS navigation maps. ...
52017-05-25 06:29:12 UTCRhubarb Sorry for the late reply, have been busy.
1) The truck parking areas in most of these rest areas are built for trucks (solid long road, lots of bins, nothing else), however there are no signs restricting access to other vehicles. Cars often use truck parking areas for quick power naps, etc.
2) I'v...
62017-05-28 00:53:43 UTCWarin61 OK... found a method for the parking areas ...

So on a parking feature add
capacity:long=yes/no/number for long cars or cars with trailers

capacity:hgv=yes/no/number for heavy goods vehicles (long and wide)

72017-06-03 23:15:53 UTCWarin61 Hi, some more details for 'truck parking' things..

There is a description tag .. description=truck parking ? Might be better than using the name tag?

The areas that cannot be used by trucks might be better to target with hgv=no .. and then assume all the others are usable by trucks?

Cycleways are not appropriate here - it is a path used by mtbs .. so highway=path, bicycle=yes. If you want you could add a mtb route. Part of this path is used by walkers and horse riders.

12017-05-11 22:14:05 UTCtonyf1 Hi. Welcome to OSM. I am surprised that there is really a Reserved forest and a standing stone here. Can you provide more information? Map features which are unverifiable are at risk of deletion.
22017-05-11 22:57:43 UTCAnnabelle Daniel Hi Tony,

The standing stone is there because I put it there with a crane. It's at the very end of my backyard. The triangular forest is fenced off, quarantined as Sydney Rail corridor property and filled with native vegetation. There is significant local wildlife living there, including bird and ...
32017-05-13 00:22:04 UTCtonyf1 Thanks for the reply. I think that there are problems with the Reserved forest. You have mapped it as a complex re-entrant polygon. The map rendering software has difficulty rendering this and shows a sliver of green little bigger than a car. Also, I think "Reserved forest" is a descriptio...
42017-05-13 05:51:48 UTCAnnabelle Daniel Thanks! I'll try and fix it as it is larger than a car - but oddly shaped. Like a wedge with a blunt end.
52017-05-13 07:14:51 UTCWarin61 The landuse tag is for the human use of the land, so a forest would be used to produce wood for example ... I think you want to tag it natural=wood ... (as close as OSM gets to landcover=trees).

Is it id that makes these errors so easy to do? Or is it something you are doing?
I'm a JOSM user so i don't know.
These 'errors' appear on OSMinspector so you can find and fix your 'own' 'errors'
22018-03-02 23:36:22 UTCEwen Hill ID doesn't validate all that well - if at all so what I do is a batch and wait for Osmose and keepright and then fix any issues.

22017-05-03 09:58:53 UTCAlexOnTheBus Oops - that would have been me not paying attention when using Shift-R to copy bus route relation tags. Apologies for that (and thanks to TheSwavu for fixing up my blunder).
12017-05-02 04:02:36 UTCWarin61 Quite some time ago I sent Jeffery a message on one of his changesets about adding fictitious bicycle infrastructure. Apparently he wants to indicate a bicycle route .. I did inform him of how to do that.
He has not made any recent edits.

12017-05-02 02:41:00 UTCWarin61 Welcome to OSM.
You moved node 3985397985 by over 100 meters, this has removed a section of the LCR National park.

I have moved it back and disconnected it from the 'wood'.

Will need some time to check your removal of node 3993045108.

Don't know that this is an official 'park'.
12017-04-19 23:06:46 UTCWarin61 Removed duplicate segment from relationship 7166553 wood. This shares boundaries with the Jilliby State conservation Area .. why? I would remove the tagging of wood on the conservation area as the wood would not stop at its boundaries ...

12017-04-17 06:08:49 UTCWarin61 HI,
Way 487105547 - residential has a shared segment where you go to/from a section of Harrison Reserve.
Shared segments are not good in OSM.. some renders get confused by them.
It is not necessary to exclude other landuses inside residential areas ... one of the few less picky things in OSM.
12017-04-15 23:03:08 UTCWarin61 A better way of mapping inner voids is to make a relation. Using a single way can confuse renders as two sections of the way occupy the same space. Made into relation 7160595

32017-03-29 04:15:44 UTCcleary Further comment. I remember driving on Waterbag Road and I recall that the track to Cymbric Vale was just a track, didn't look anything like Waterbag Road (which I think was graded and reasonable gravel suface,) and there was no sign to indicate public access was permitted to Cymbric Vale.

12017-03-26 03:41:32 UTCWarin61 Relationship 6794412 taged breakwater;

only has inners. It should have at least one outer.

Ways touch one another .. not good in a multipolygon!

I have made this into a simple way.
12017-03-26 03:27:27 UTCWarin61 No roles on Goodna either .. could you check the rest?
12017-03-26 03:25:13 UTCWarin61 You forgot to add roles for the members of Redbank...
12017-03-26 03:23:25 UTCWarin61 You forgot to add roles to the members of relationship for Brookwater.
12017-03-23 22:49:14 UTCWarin61 Why layer=1 for these buildings?

At the moment relationship 6592787 has 3 of these buildings .. all layer=1 ... and they over lap one another ... so in order to 'fix' the problem I'd like to understand the use of the layer tag here.
22017-03-23 23:01:33 UTCLeon K Hi, not sure about the layer tag to be honest, I can't remember a specific reason for it. The reason for the three spearate parts is they are different heights and colours. It's part of the 3d tagging.
The layer isn't associated with that but might be because of the underground car park.
32017-03-25 10:40:17 UTCCloCkWeRX Better to model the different chunks as building:part I reckon; and the building 'footprint' as a building.

A bit hard to get them all in a relation properly with ID; dunno about other editors
42017-03-25 11:01:36 UTCWarin61 Interesting and dynamic architecture is hard to map... particularly from satellite imagery! :) Don't think any of the 2D editors handle it well. Now if we modeled the world in solid modeler? :)))
My thinking at the moment is to map it by the roof over laps .. at least that is visible from the image...
52017-03-25 11:14:12 UTCLeon K I've been there plenty of times, only issue I can see was one overlap, which i've just removed. Hopefully that solves whatever error you're seeing.
62017-03-25 11:16:06 UTCLeon K A single building and building parts might work better, might look into that. 3D tagging isn't so bad, eventually you learn how to see the result from the tags.
72017-03-26 00:41:27 UTCWarin61 Thanks Leon. I'll have a look at it later .. There should be a method of tagging the roof too so that they don't clash.
12017-03-25 23:08:47 UTCWarin61 Relation 2420705 contains a way 181488836 with the same tags - adding nothing to the map. I have removed it from the relationship.
12017-03-25 03:33:37 UTCWarin61 Way 482161878 (wood) crosses itself .. a figure 8.
12017-03-25 00:08:41 UTCWarin61 I have made some changes to Camp Coutts Scout Camp. You have a number of nodes inside the area with similar tags. I assume the nodes are individual pitches so have retagged them camp_site=pitch as per a proposed tagging scheme. I have also add an alternate name Coutts Camp from the LPI Base Map.
12017-03-23 23:07:09 UTCWarin61 Relation 4246123 is now not closed ... it was closed yesterday.... Possibly the ways you deleted were used by this way? ?? History says you were the last to touch it.
22017-03-23 23:27:37 UTCFvGordon I have just sorted the members of this boundary relation (without removing or adding any members). The JOSM relation editor now shows a closed ring.
32017-03-23 23:53:10 UTCWarin61 OK. I'm using OSM Inspector to try and get the errors down.. easier than using the error files from making a map. Once those are down I'll try using the error files again.
12017-03-23 23:13:35 UTCWarin61 Hi,
By making a new node and moving the boundary by 0.2 m the OSM inspector error is removed .. very little effect in the real world. It dose create a 'gap' of 0.2 metres. .. cheating I know.
12017-03-23 02:34:12 UTCWarin61 Err multipolygon 5866031 has no tags to say what it is! ... Its members also cross one another. The ways that from the multipolygon are tagged area=yes .. redundant.

I have removed the area tags, resolved the ways into a simpler system and added the tag natural=scrub to the multipolygon.
22017-03-23 03:00:12 UTCGlenhope1 ok. good
12017-03-23 00:20:46 UTCWarin61 This 'meadow' incorporates buildings, and structures and trees .. not all a meadow. And the relationship is not closed now ... relationship 6287756. So I have deleted the relation.
12017-03-23 00:09:47 UTCWarin61 This building (way 481787267) crosses over it self ... and that is not right. I'll leave it to you to fix.
22017-03-24 01:39:15 UTCWoodWoseWulf 👍 fixed, cheers.
12016-12-01 00:51:16 UTCWarin61 Errr ... highway=cycleway is not correct.

Use hightway=path (or track if wide enough to take a car/4WD) and add mtb=yes and/or bicycle=yes. You could even use a route relation ..
However .. read

Note: Best to respond to the questions you h...
22017-03-03 00:03:13 UTCWarin61 No response for 3 months mapping activity to connect unconnected paths ... leaving it this way is not good.

So I may as well add things that were deleted ... unless you respond real soon?
32017-03-22 05:31:43 UTCWarin61 Ok. Corrections made -
removed highway=cycleway.
added relations for mtb routes.

Added paths from strava.
Added catch all for strava heat map trails - no names but a generic for the park as a whole.

These now display on!-35.1145!147.3048

Note ...
12017-03-21 00:05:52 UTCWarin61 Hi again
Relation: 2308145 tagged waterway=riverbank ... is not closed ... and looks to contain ways 172860359 and 172860350 that are both tagged (correctly I think) as wetlands.
I think the wetlands need to be made into relationship ... so that the ways can be cut up so they can be shared betwee...
22017-03-21 00:32:57 UTCTheOldMiner I agree with your comments. I made these additions back in 2013. My changesets appear to have been damaged around the areas of the wetlands. There are more problems all the way down to Mackay. I am not 100% why, as they were all mapped from bing using josm. There is another user fixing the problems...
32017-03-21 07:07:14 UTCWarin61 Finding out who did what .. err .. and then once found are they still around, and amenable to working on fixing it?
Rather it were fixed .. as time and inclination allows. This is not my area of vast knowledge in either OSM nor familiarity with the land .. I have been through a few times but not s...
42017-03-23 06:03:12 UTCnevw I am likely to be 'the other user' but have been unable to fix any due to not being familiar with the area and limited ability to interpret the Bing imagery for the wetland areas so I have abandoned my efforts to fix. There is the following data that could likely assist but as far as I know we don't...
52017-03-23 10:07:03 UTCTheOldMiner No problems. I will revist the area virtually other the next few weeks. Let you know when I am done. To see if all the errors have be rectified. I had the same issues around Mackay a little while back. Maybe when they did that big rework of the map
62017-03-23 11:21:41 UTCnevw Thanks to TheOldMiner
These are the main areas
12016-03-17 00:51:10 UTCPeter W34 The bridges on Marlborough Sarina Road or any other road, should not be changed to service or any thing different to what the rest of the road class is. This wrecks the routing for all the people who use OSM for in car navigation, also all roundabouts should have junction = roundabout tag.
22016-03-17 03:29:08 UTCTheOldMiner I am not sure who this is and what authority you have make such comments without a spread of manners, something I intend to raise with the mailing list, it may be a good idea to not only provide an example but discuss the issue. There maybe a litigimate reason.
32016-03-17 10:43:22 UTCPeter W34 I apologize for my bluntness, I am fixing many of the errors in the map using Osmose. I was disappointed to find someone had changed these two bridges on Marlborough Sarina Road to service road, if the bridge is narrow put lane=1 instead. If you look at the history of the Funnel Creek bridge you wil...
42017-03-20 23:38:04 UTCWarin61 Error .. confuses me!
Relation: Develin State Forest (1481424)

Are both the same! The same area should not be a national park and a state forest? Could you look at this please (I hope you are more locale than me).
Reason why I am looking here is t...
52017-03-21 00:38:44 UTCTheOldMiner I would be careful with starting a conversation with the word Error. I worked for the Queensland Department of Natural Resources for 6 years in the land management area. Simply, it is possible to historically have state forest, natural park, land leases and many forms of tenure coexisting in a laye...
62017-03-21 06:59:41 UTCWarin61 As a NSWelshman I find the idea of an area being both a National Park and a State Forest strange in this country. However if that is the case then it should remain so in OSM. I have updated the web links for the Goodedulla_National_Park. Oh and the tag natural=forest to natural=wood as that is the p...
12017-03-20 23:18:24 UTCWarin61 Way 481460629 was crossing it self. I have removed the crossing and added detail from the LPI Imagery and added the source tag.
12017-03-17 22:21:29 UTCWarin61 Errors on relationship Lake Cakora;Cakora Lagoon (7017874, v1).

Multiple names ... the name tag should only carry one name. If there are other names .. then use alt_name,

Next .. the ways of this relationship intersect. It looks to me like you ...
22017-03-17 22:25:43 UTCWarin61 Humm looking at the history .. I would remove the relationship. The northern way I would tag as the lake, and I'd reapply the southern way as the lagoon.
12017-03-17 06:02:33 UTCWarin61 Congratulations.
You have removed a race track.
22017-03-17 17:10:51 UTCEdSS Hi Warin61,
The entire Skellatar Park area is tagged as sport horse_racing and all fences etc seem to be there. Is there something important missing from the map?
32017-03-17 21:55:38 UTCWarin61 The sport is on a race track .. where is the tack?
Relation: 6422036 is tagged as leisure=track.. had outers and inners .. now has one outer .. that is not closed. So the relationship is broken

Possibly this was broken before your changes? Don't know... but you certainly have not 'improved' it...
42017-03-18 15:14:47 UTCEdSS I appreciate the landcover comment. The original mapping was flagged as having a problem that would eventually prevented proper rendering. Skellatar Park and OSM are very lucky to have someone so concerned with excellent mapping. I look forward to your revised version that will be even better tha...
12017-03-17 05:48:33 UTCWarin61 2 relationships .. contain no information.
3rd relation has both buildings as roofs and shop convenience.
All relationships deleted.
One way is now tagged as the roof. The other way is tagged as building retail with sop convenience. Added node - amenity=fuel, operator Woolworths.

22017-03-16 20:38:46 UTCWoodWoseWulf Thank you so much for bringing this to my attention, I must have had a brain fluff or something while editing. I've fixed it now.
12017-03-15 21:47:21 UTCWarin61 Relation: Georges River Council (6205809) Not closed ... was closed before your change.
12017-03-15 21:37:09 UTCWarin61 And you have now unclosed the relationship area...fix it yourself . Getting tired of these!
12017-03-15 01:42:20 UTCWarin61 Not closed again... I have closed it. But not well matched to the actual boundaries!!!!

This boundary is not visible in the Base map .. you should use the Admin boundaries. Suggest you fix all the associated council boundaries as one changeset ... I would use JOSM.
12017-03-15 01:30:28 UTCWarin61 Opps "Slap Up Road" .. tagged a highway=stream ...corrected to highway=unclassified .. as per LPI base map.
12017-02-12 01:40:32 UTCWarin61 The 'Epping Station Concourse' begins and ends outside the 'building' .. so it is not a corridor. Retagged footway, tunnel=building_passage.

22017-03-13 09:24:17 UTCWarin61 Nodes 3281331663 and 3281331666 are highway=elevator ... and you should not use the name tag to state a function. Corrected.
12017-03-08 06:18:23 UTCWarin61 Frying Pan Road not secondary!!!
At most it would be 'unclassified .. but on the LPI base map is is a track. Retagged as a track -
12017-03-08 03:26:44 UTCWarin61 1) The LPI Imagery cannot be the source of an administration boundary ... I think you mean the LPI Base Map ?
2) The relationship is not closed ... sothern end of Cooks Bridge. And has other problems according to the JOSM validator.
22017-03-08 04:04:41 UTCTheSwavu Need to also:

1. Remove old councils:

2. Fix the tagging on your new relation.
12017-03-03 23:55:46 UTCWarin61 Relation: 6585065 is a simple way .. does not need to be a relation. And it carries no information as to what it is .. And it crosses over itself.
I have made it a single way 442374458, made the boundaries from the LPI Base Map and tagged it a park. Please review my work here and make any changes...

I cannot see anything there .. not even with the better LPI Imagery. deleted these as I came across them. e.g. Node: 2555269081
22017-02-27 03:18:10 UTCstevage Weird - thanks for letting me know. If they're not connected to a power=line it was almost certainly a mistake - can't really imagine how that happened.
32017-02-27 03:46:09 UTCWarin61 I had a look for power lines ... they are very hard to see on imagery .. none in OSM itself. The LPI Imagery shows some of that area clear of trees .. and even then I cannot see them... Don't know how .. they don't stand out with the standard rendering so would be easy to miss that way. I only notic...

12017-02-17 21:15:07 UTCWarin61 What sport/s is/are played here?
The rendered area looks to be several pitches.
Bing imagery shows construction and buildings in this area.
22017-02-20 02:41:39 UTCSwagadactyl Basically a large grass area, used for different sports, Bing imagery is years outdated
12017-02-15 23:24:03 UTCWarin61 Way 435727141 is part of a relation .. this way should not carry tags, it is the relation that should carry the tags.

Deciduous ??? really! .. Evergreen is what is there.
22017-02-15 23:54:15 UTCWarin61 Kenley Park contains areas of grass .. removed tagging for wood.
Florence Cottan Park changed to LPI boundaries
Delected way 435725409 as this contains houses too.
Way 144343003 reduced to exclude houses.

highway=footway excludes motor vehicles by default no need to tag motorvehicle=no.
12017-02-15 02:26:51 UTCWarin61 Another .. not a culvert but a bridge.
12017-02-12 01:57:36 UTCWarin61 Hi,
The Epping platform (5+ 6) is not wide enough - does not line up with my recollections of the lifts at their above ground locations.. I'll do a survey when I can. But i think this may be better as 2 separate platforms as they are separated by walls at this station.
22017-05-17 07:37:41 UTCbentrails Hi... Thanks. I completely understand what you're saying and I agree. Sorry for taking so long to get back to you.
12017-02-08 00:00:40 UTCWarin61 The following nodes do not appear on the LPI Base amp;

These have all been put on way Way: 387068735 that I originally added. I am concerned as to how many other ways you may have similarly added/modified data tha...
22017-02-08 01:23:18 UTCTheSwavu That's because when I updated the boundaries using the data from NSW LPI I used the replace geometry tool in JOSM. That way the history of what happened gets preserved. If you check the boundaries of Nundle SF are still correctly aligned.

32017-02-08 02:09:52 UTCWarin61 Humm yes correctly aligned to the "LPI admin boundaries - state forests" but not shown on the LPI Base Map .. so the source is wrong and means it cannot be verified using the sated source.
42017-02-08 03:22:50 UTCTheSwavu State forests are the dark green areas with the faint grey lines around them labelled with the name such-and-such S.F. Alternatively they are available by downloading from the REST service.
52017-02-08 03:37:29 UTCWarin61 1) This boundary is between 2 state forests - so the colour is the same for both sides on the LPI Base Map
2) there is no faint grey or any other coloured line here on the LPI Base Map.

Therefore the source in not the LPI Base Map.
62017-02-08 03:43:22 UTCTheSwavu Have a closer look they are there:

72017-02-08 04:49:11 UTCWarin61 Visible there .. but not the same location.
At the given locations ... not visible!

Not visible!
82017-02-08 05:01:16 UTCTheSwavu Yeap, that's because they are rendered before the stream. As I said earlier if you can't see the boundaries clearly on the map you should use the REST interface to extract them or use the WMS service. The NSW LPI has helpfully exposed some of the layers so they can be downloaded but most of the base...
92017-02-08 05:07:12 UTCWarin61 You clearly have not looked.
The stream there is not the boundary.

Go on ... look at these nodes ... !
102017-02-08 05:41:41 UTCTheSwavu Hmm.. that's an interesting rendering anomaly you've found there. I've popped off an email to NSW LPI asking what the problem is.

Luckily if you want to validate state forest boundaries then this is one of the base map layers that has been exposed as a REST service so you can download the data di...
12017-02-07 03:12:19 UTCWarin61 Node 4438854071 is not a ford .. there is a bridge here as per LPI Base Map.
Node 4438854852 looks to be a culvert.

Perhaps all theses should be left for a survey!!
12017-02-07 02:44:40 UTCWarin61 I am adding a few tracks in the Bargo State Forest. Way 285828624 - part of the Hume & Hovel ... looks to be a little off the LPI Base map location? So my question is .. what is your source for the entry .. and should I replace it with the LIP data?
12017-02-06 10:12:40 UTCWarin61 The relation you added has no information. Deleted.
12017-02-06 10:12:34 UTCWarin61 The relation you added is not required. Simple relations for boundaries are used where more than one way is required to define the object, that is not the case here.
12017-02-06 04:20:18 UTCWarin61 The changeset comment "These places are important" is subjective. Far better to state something like "added park in my local area."

I have added the playgrounds to these parks. I have also refined the boundary of Greenlow Park. I hope that is an improvement.

The paths you...
12017-02-03 22:08:21 UTCWarin61 Hi,
When you added the library .. there was a node already tagged as the library ... this causes 2 to be present on the map when only one should be present. The polite way is to use the old node as one corner of the new building .. and then copy the tags across to the way (the building) and edit t...
22017-02-04 01:18:30 UTCBella7930 Hi, thank you for the feedback, I will be more careful in the future.
12017-02-03 21:58:11 UTCWarin61 Hi,
Some comments;

1) No name ... so the change set description is wrong.. Possibly 'Add building" ?
2) Building is not 'square' as in the corners are not square... in ID select the object (the building) and press the 'S' key .. see
22017-02-06 23:36:05 UTCaharvey PS. If you're adding multiple buildings at the same time you can add them all then hit Save at the end so you only have one changeset adding a whole block of buildings.
12017-02-03 21:46:47 UTCWarin61 Hi,
You will find the LPI Base Map to have better boundaries for things like parks. Also easier to track creeks.
22017-02-03 21:48:40 UTCWarin61 The Community center does no appear in the stated source - LPI Imagery .. where did it come from?

12017-02-03 21:31:37 UTCWarin61 Park way 471661432 has a name, Immarana Place Reserve - can be found on the LPI Base Map .. and the LPI Base Map has better boundaries ... corrected.

Please refer to the LPI Base Map for more detail as you add/change stuff.
12017-02-03 21:08:51 UTCWarin61 Objects do not exist in the stated source - LIP Imagery. .

OSM data is used by, OSMAnd, Locus maps, Mapbox etc etc... lots of people and organizations use this data. They trust it to be real, not fantasy.

12017-02-02 07:26:32 UTCWarin61 What discussion has taken place for this change? None? Then I suggest you start one on the talk au group before you do more.

22017-01-31 03:49:12 UTCTheSwavu Aahh... mystery solved, different culverts. You fixed at least two bridges, but one less culvert.
12017-01-29 06:06:59 UTCWarin61 Hi,
Where Hill End Road crosses Grattai Creek there is a bridge, you had a culvert. If you look on the LPI base map, zoomed in there, road has black lines on ether side to indicate the bridge ...hard to make out with the shadows in the imagery. I have cahnged it .. I am correction Hill End Road to ...
22017-01-30 21:25:08 UTCTheSwavu Thanks for that. I would have also removed the culvert from the creek.

An Overpass query tells me that I've edited 8500+ waterway crossing in the last 6 months. Even if I'm 95% accurate that's still 425+ mistakes I've made so feel free to just fix them without letting me know. Most of the errors ...

12017-01-28 14:01:46 UTCemacsen Hi,

Are you aware that you made a forest in the middle of an apartment complex? That doesn't seem correct. You also marked the area as construction.

Can you please explain or revert this edit?
22017-01-28 23:12:13 UTCWarin61 landuse=forest means the trees are intended to be harvested. If you mean a collection of trees then natural=wood can be used.
32017-01-29 00:34:15 UTCemacsen In either case, it seems inappropriate here.
42017-01-29 16:30:50 UTCitzcorbinn Originally this was marked as construction.. But construction has been completed and has been changed to Apartment.. I have deleted forrest..
52017-01-29 22:55:49 UTCWarin61 The area is rather confused!

12017-01-28 22:54:27 UTCWarin61 Has the WHOLE are changed from Industrial???
22017-01-28 23:29:39 UTCjamesbrah Most of it isn't current anymore, there is a lot of new housing. It would have taken a very long time to adjust and the google maps aren't 100% accurate either, but it's better to not be there and be wrong than be there and be 50% misleading.
32017-01-28 23:50:27 UTCWarin61 Everything is 'out of date' as soon as it is produced :) I look at maps as a guide .. what you see is real, what is on a map can be 'out of date'. If you follow your philosophy you'll end up with a blank map ...
I'd rather map the bits that I know are residential - removing them from industrial.
42017-01-28 23:51:56 UTCjamesbrah On Monday I will try to add in the areas I know are industrial. There is a chunk that hasn't changed for awhile.
52017-01-28 23:52:37 UTCWarin61 Oh ...
side note...
your changeset says the source is LPI Imagery + OSM .. I would add 'personal survey' ... or 'personal knowledge' that would help those looking at it to understand that the imagery is not the only thing you used.
12017-01-27 21:35:26 UTCWarin61 Hi, welcome to OSM.
You have added names to some of the paths you have added .. where did you get the names from? If these are your own 'names' ... then don't add them to the map, OSM should be used for 'official' or at least 'locally used' names. You can add the tag 'source' to say where these thi...
22017-01-28 23:29:08 UTCJodie Cameron Where in a small local town so there are no path names so i just named them after what the location is called. If this is incorrect i am sorry, it wasn't my intention. I am new to using thing and was still trying to understand. What should i name the path if there is no name?
32017-01-28 23:45:37 UTCWarin61 noname=yes is used to indicate there is no name. If you don't know the name ... just leave the tag off, if you know there is no name then use the noname=yes tag.
The basic guide is to map what you can see, don't make stuff up.

The OSMwiki is a fair guide ...
12017-01-28 23:24:38 UTCWarin61 Wrong? Shades of grey more like.

12017-01-28 23:06:59 UTCWarin61 This has been deleted by some one..
possibly because it does not exist?
You will need to justify it better if it is real.
12017-01-28 22:53:08 UTCWarin61 The park does not cross the road.
Further it does not encompass the house next door.
I have corrected this to LPI Base Map data ... take a look.
12017-01-28 22:40:32 UTCWarin61 Deleted.

Area is not a park. Not shown in either LPI Imagery nor LPI base map.

Please do not enter fantasy. OSM is for actual objects.
12017-01-28 22:33:51 UTCWarin61 Hi,
Welcome to OSM.

The 'Scott Park' entry looks more like 'Clareville Park' to me.. use the LPI Base Map to get the legal boundaries.
I have moved some of the boundary points ... away from the roads - they don't actually connect, there are foot paths in the way. There are more detailed points...
12017-01-28 22:16:15 UTCWarin61 Talk to 'em. Otherwise you may get into edit wars.
12017-01-28 22:08:34 UTCWarin61 Use landcover=grass ... landuse=grass may get changed. You can use both tags together just to avoid any migration issues with the landuse=grass tag.
12017-01-28 22:06:15 UTCWarin61 Hi, welcome to OSM.
Try using the LPI Base Map - that has cliffs on it - much easier to follow.
12017-01-28 21:53:43 UTCWarin61 Not very polite to delete stuff without contacting the original mapper?
12017-01-28 01:06:57 UTCWarin61 Hi, welcome to OSM. Some comments...

The footpath does not cross a waterway .. so should not carry the ford=yes tag.

The parks boundary can be better determined using LPI Base Map rather than the imagery.

There are some other green areas on the Base Map that may be of interest to you ... a...

You have added node 4637970582 with the tags lesiure=park and name=Granby Park Sign ... This is not ideal in three ways;

The name 'Granby Park Sign' I think says what the p...
12017-01-27 22:14:10 UTCWarin61 Hi, welcome to OSM.

You have added the way 469421084 as highway=pedestrian .. this is used for wide areas of pedestrian spaces .. use highway=footway for normal width paths. Up to you to judge it.

It should be connected to the road - roads can be assumed to have pedestrian capabilities so the...
12017-01-27 21:45:53 UTCWarin61 Hi, welcome to OSM.

The park (way 469412763) looks to be a house - 58 Oswald Street. Is it really a park now?

The footways you added should be integrated with the data that is already in OSM .. where they cross a road then should be connected using a node that is 'on' both the road and the foo...
12017-01-27 21:27:09 UTCWarin61 Welcome to OSM.

As well as the LPI Imagery there is the LPI Base Map .. that gives you the boundaries for the park - you can use that base map data to make the park into an area .. it looks much better on the map.
22017-01-27 22:53:18 UTCaharvey Sorry, I only just saw this note after changing it to an area.
12017-01-27 21:15:55 UTCWarin61 You have removed the road 'Evans Street' totally from the map!

This is wrong.

If you want to add footpaths .. then add, don't change a valid object that is there and used to something else.

No problem extending to the south for ground truth. Possibly the LPI data is out of date here?

42017-01-08 04:19:33 UTCWarin61 Looking at the 'water boundary' you can compare the LPI Base Map to the LPI or bing Imagery and see that the water level is above where this boundary lies... so I would assume that this boundary is low water mark. I think 'coastline' is taken at high water mark?

12017-01-07 22:20:51 UTCWarin61 Cliff's Trail appears on the LIP Base Map as Cliffs Trail .. and as a track rather than a footway. How is your memory? Is it wide enough for a car to fit down (4WD accepted)? If it is that wide then it is a track. The LPI Base Map also shows it extending further south, I have added that bit.
22017-01-08 00:38:44 UTCmacAlba Yes, you're quite correct. It was a vehicle 4WD track at the time we walked it - I've no idea what it's current condition is though. If I had to guess I'd say it's maintained as a fire trail.

12016-07-14 12:30:22 UTCLeon K Hi, Just a note that i'm updating some of these.
The building tag is used to indicate that the object is a building outline, not that it has a building on it.
In these cases you are tagging the entire block as a building.
22016-07-14 22:31:06 UTCmrpulley For the outline of the land around the Kingdom Hall, you can use landuse=religious - see for info.
32016-07-14 22:37:22 UTCmrpulley Also, the tags religion/denomination tags should be religion=christian denomination=jehovahs_witness - see for info

42016-09-14 21:54:21 UTCWarin61 Now that is interesting .. says Nora Creek.. as an old name. So maybe the LPI data base is more upto date here.. I have come across places where it is old.
52016-09-14 22:34:46 UTCWarin61 Strangely I just came across Norah Creek Road - way 180236917. I was extending Mandagery Creek and there it is ... Norah Creek Road.
62017-08-28 10:02:01 UTCmrpulley I've just checked the signs for the creek crossings. Larras Lee Road has 'Jews Creek'. Banjo Paterson Way has 'Norah Creek' (with the 'h'). Burgoon Lane doesn't have any signs. I'll add an 'old_name=Norah Creek' tag to the creek.
12016-09-13 10:30:57 UTCTheSwavu I'm guessing that 4.5 km long culvert don't really exist:
22016-09-13 21:19:22 UTCWarin61 Corrected errors. :) thanks.
12016-09-12 23:50:36 UTCWarin61 The Styx River is not the boundary of the Styx River State Forest .. nor do I think it is the boundary of the Cunnawarra NP... I have separated it off the Styx River State Forest. Will 'look at' the NP boundary later.
22016-09-17 09:01:09 UTCnevw Yes, looks ok.
12016-09-11 21:28:14 UTCWarin61 Hummm ... the relation should have tags on it. The ways should be 'free' of the relationship tags.

I think there are at least 2 tracks here ... the relation is for the outer one. I have added that relationship.

There is more detail taht can be added - a barrier with gaps.. I have added those...
22016-09-12 04:01:57 UTCLeon K My understanding is that both methods are permissible.
Admittedly when you start adding more detail as you have then tagging the relation does makes more sense.
12016-09-09 23:45:37 UTCWarin61 Extended and added detail from LPI Hydrography data for this creek.
12016-08-31 08:47:14 UTCWarin61 Hi
Way 208009289 was tagged
name=Royal Regiment of Australian Artillery

That is 3 features on one OSM element... too many!
I want to add
name=Mount Pleasant Lookout...

So I have removed the tag tourism=viewpoint off to a node an...
12016-08-27 23:46:49 UTCWarin61 Hi,
I have changed way 23641312 (West Witney Sports Ground).
Pitches are best on the actual pitches - I have added some of these as separate ways in this area.
The area I think is a recreation ground .. so I have tagged the way as such.
22016-08-28 11:25:04 UTCmesspert You have missed the cricket pitches which I know to exist from when I am passing the Sports Ground. There are also mini-soccer pitches according to the Town Council Website. I suppose that I might do a gps survey of the pitches one day if it happens to cross my mind when I am free.
32016-08-28 22:33:17 UTCWarin61 The cricket pitch I cannot see in Bing.

The 'mini-soccer' pitches are visible .. but
undocumented in the OSM wiki
too easy to confuse with other things.
So I have left them off as I cannot reliably map them.
12016-08-24 01:09:10 UTCWarin61 Hi,
Building=residential Way: 428418578 should be building=farm (main residential building of farm) .. and ways 428418576 and 428418572 (were building=farm) don't look like residence .. so I have them as building=yes.
12016-08-22 10:14:12 UTCWarin61 Hi,
I have changed the 'basketball' courts to netball ... e.g. way 418200418. That is what they appear to be in LPI Imagery.
12016-08-22 04:42:35 UTCWarin61 Way 422672861 tagged as 'building=yes' should be only on the building footprint - not the property boundaries.
Node 4224101948 has many tags the same as the above way ... so it is an unwanted repetition.
12016-08-21 11:00:57 UTCWarin61 Charles Sturt Uni ... you had tennis courts .. I have changes these to netbal as that is what is shown by ht eLPI Imagery and Base Map.
12016-08-07 22:03:51 UTCWarin61 Hi,
Relation: Store Beach (2927697) is not closed. I think this may be left as a simple way - not a relation?
12016-08-02 00:12:11 UTCWarin61 In iD select the background layer as LPI Base Map. Now you can see how 'Rotary Drive' (way 48200084) follows the boundary of the Clyde River National Park and not the road itself. The LPI Base Map is not perfect - select the iD base layer as LPI Imagery ... you' ll see differences from time to time...
12016-07-31 23:29:42 UTCWarin61 Too quick for me. Thanks for the correction.
12016-07-30 01:20:05 UTCWarin61 Hi,
I have restored the Western Sydney Parklands boundaries to the LPI Administration Boundaries ... please leave these alone, they are the legal boundaries and include rights of way etc.
I have retained a change made by you as a fence - Way: 434837423, please modify this 'fence' as appropriate? ...
22016-07-31 01:21:21 UTCChopStiR Hi Warren, I had changed the boudaries based on current management. The LPI map does not reflect the current management.
I have re-added Plough and Harrow as a separate park area with the key tag Operator to denote WSP.

The WSP is far more extensive then what is shown on the LPI map.

32016-07-31 02:09:16 UTCWarin61 If you are going to change it to some other source ... remove the source=LPI etc.. tag from the relation. And put in what ever source you are using.

Note that the areas excluded in the LPI data may have legal easements on them .. they may be included in a map by the Western Sydney Parklands .. b...
12016-07-30 07:35:01 UTCWarin61 Hi,
You look to have added some roads to the boundary relation of the Clyde River National Park? And Possibly deleted an outer way for this relation?
Relation: 5857616
Ways that don't look to be part of it ? :
Way: Driveway (434309908)
Way: Snapper Point Road (434309903)

And .. Way: Rotary...
12016-07-29 01:51:48 UTCWarin61 Hi,
looks like you have made some changes to the boundaries of the Western Sydney Parklands. There is a conflict in the outer ways sharing the same space. I have moved the southern part of Way: 402801662 and the northern western Way: 402801663. You have added gates to Way: 402801663 ... umm gates ...
12016-07-26 11:46:16 UTCWarin61 Relation 5929494 removed landuse=forest added natural=wood, combined with the 'old' relationship 5929493.
12016-07-24 23:34:56 UTCWarin61 I don't think 'aerial imagery' is adequate ... is this from Bing or Mapbox or some other source?
12016-07-10 13:48:04 UTCSomeoneElse This has already been reverted by a local mapper, but in future please don't make mechanical edits like this without prior discussion.
22016-07-10 22:22:57 UTCWarin61 "mechanical edits"? ... you mean that using JOSMs 'Download for API...' cannot be done to identify incorrectly tagged objects (see the wiki for "use sport=" NOT sports=!!!!) ????????
32016-07-10 23:21:57 UTCSomeoneElse JOSM's, and the wiki's, recommendations aren't foolproof. In this case you changed data that potentially affects display in a downstream website (osm-nottingham).
By all means try and persuade the person the who added these shops that they're wrong, but basic common courtesy would suggest that you...
42016-07-11 00:33:51 UTCWarin61 Tagging for ONE render? Where other renders use the sport= tag ... such as OSMAnd? I think the correct tag should be applied so that all the renders can 'see' it.
It would be indulgent to apply different tagging that others do not use.
52016-07-11 00:57:26 UTCSomeoneElse It's not about tagging for one renderer - it's about having the common courtesy to explain why you think something is wrong rather than just changing it.
Just like the difference between "football" and "soccer" I can't get excited about the actual tagging difference in this case...
12016-07-10 05:51:13 UTCWarin61 Hi,
please see the wiki ... it says "Use sport=* to specify more details of sold products, useful values can be taken from sport key. "

22016-07-10 05:52:56 UTCWarin61 P.S. Don't blame me for the inconsistency with OSM tags.. I'd much rather use something like sells=* to specify what a shop/vending_machine sells.
32016-07-10 18:04:44 UTCwill_p I appreciate that there are arguments in favour of using the sport key in these cases. However, there are counter arguments of which two immediately come to mind:

1. As mentioned in my changeset comment, with shops it's common to use the format shop=x x=y to expand on the products sold.

2. Th...
42016-07-10 22:59:10 UTCWarin61 Some sports shops sell food, drinks, clothing ...
But the OSM convention is to use sport=* to specify what sport (or multiple sport using the ; as a separator). I have started a topic on the talk uk list.
12016-07-10 00:29:45 UTCWarin61 Hi,
The Broadway Post Office Node: 3977545159 ... from the LPI base map is across the road - same building .. I have added it. One of the two needs to be deleted ... leave it to you?
12016-07-06 09:21:45 UTCWarin61 Way: 402805211 Appears to be property boundary for Dangar Island.

Way: Dangar Island (172544584) -part of multipolygon Hawesbury river.

Relation: Dangar Island (6039000) uses way 402805211 ... this duplicates the above way feature.

12016-07-05 00:02:42 UTCWarin61 Hi
Way: 219841753 looks like a building? Presently only has an attribute of sport=hockey .. so it won't render. Hockey is also not detailed enough .. field_hockey or ice_hockey?
12016-07-04 23:31:06 UTCWarin61 Hi
Way: 47651696 looks like sport=rugby to me rather than sport=hockey?
12016-07-04 23:28:43 UTCWarin61 Hi
Way: 324958533 looks like sport=soccer to me rather than sport=soccer?
12016-07-04 23:28:12 UTCWarin61 Hi
Way: 319666766 looks like sport=soccer to me rather than sport=soccer?
12016-07-04 23:24:16 UTCWarin61 Hi
Way: 26115162 sport changed from soccer to filed hockey. Part of the Mount Eden Hockey Club.
12016-07-03 22:59:03 UTCWarin61 Hi,
Winton (node 247811870) reset to town rather than a city. Longreach is larger and has more services than Winton yet it is rated as a town.
12016-07-03 01:49:14 UTCWarin61 Hi,
Corrected sports=athletics to sport=athletics. Added to sport=tennis .. leisure=pitch, surface and source and separated up into different courts. Also added netball court.
12016-07-03 01:39:04 UTCWarin61 HI
The Cranfield Golf Academy, node 2975561271 has no physical characteristic - so it may not render. I have corrected the tag sports=golf to sport=golf.
12016-07-03 01:03:12 UTCWarin61 Hi,
Corrected sports= to sport=.
22016-07-03 01:11:45 UTCWarin61 added building=yes ... as these features marked sport= have no physical feature for rendering.
12016-07-02 05:05:53 UTCWarin61 Hi,
Found you ... :) .. could not find you before I made the change on the wiki.
I think the original access tag is for motor vehicles... and those may well be restricted here. Most mappers only consider motor vehicles...
22016-07-02 07:52:18 UTCswanilli Yes. There is a sign on a gate that says "Rail Corridor" and "Authorised vehicles only" but the tracks are in Garrawarra State Conservation area not on the Rail Corridor which is only 30 m wide.
32016-07-02 08:41:53 UTCswanilli On checking 30 m is not accurate. I have read rail corridor is "15m from the outermost rail on either side" but it is clearly more than this in most places, 60 m or more. It does not alter conclusion for these tracks which are well outside rail corridor.
42016-07-02 21:42:49 UTCWarin61 The sign says
"Authorized Vehicles Only" ... not just "Rail Corridor".
See for who can use it... looks to me to EXCLUDE MOTOR VEHICLES!
If necessary I will ring them and confirm that this tra...
12016-07-02 05:21:35 UTCWarin61 Hi, example Way: Saltpan Creek Track (174143548) tagged access=yes means all things can access it .. vehicles bicycles and horses etc. But access=no and foot=yes means only people who are walking can access it ... and that is the way it was tagged before you changed it?
12016-06-30 03:06:03 UTCWarin61 Relation 6197563 (dog park) is not closed. And I cannot make it out from the LPI data and the ways in the relationship.
