12018-07-15 12:18:33 UTCVictorIE Are these traffic lights correct? It seems an odd location for them.
22018-07-16 16:28:32 UTCgmcternan Right you are!
Not sure how they got there,
thanks for the heads up.
32018-07-16 17:30:04 UTCVictorIE Cool. :)
12018-07-05 15:19:14 UTCAA_NP Hi there
I am not 100% sure that the new coding for the M50 from the motorway roundabout eastbound is correct. The signs show it as the R139 (June 2017). There is no reason why this section should be coded as motorway - can you verify with current and up to date road signs please? Thanks
22018-07-05 21:24:17 UTCVictorIE Ultimately, unless you want to double back, it only leads to motorways. The "motorway ahead" sign is east of the Bewley's (Clayton Hotel) roundabout.

To be honest, the situation / signage is a bit of a shambles, with a mix of blue, green and white signage in use. The roads schedule, lik...
32018-07-06 08:09:17 UTCAA_NP Thank you for your reply and all the information you have supplied. It does look inconsistent in the signing. This one here looks to be clear showing it as motorway -,-6.2160402,3a,75y,265.04h,89.26t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sRgzQaQ039Nv3r3U29tJcAg!2e0!7i13312!8i...

22018-05-10 09:27:27 UTCDafo43 fixed
32018-05-10 11:02:08 UTCVictorIE Cool. I would have fixed it, but thought you want want to know how it came about. :)
42018-05-11 10:14:42 UTCDafo43 It's just the default null value in Potlatch, so usually if you select the first letter it will autofill the value.
52018-05-11 13:00:07 UTCVictorIE Ah, ID doesn't allow blank tags.
12018-05-08 06:19:01 UTCVictorIE Is this lake accurate?
22018-05-08 11:10:06 UTCCrushedSoul Hi VictorIE

It is not accurate. We used to have the river in the Pokémon game, but eversince OSM, it's been gone. I'm just fiddling around a bit, to see if we can get it back. I'm using the area around the park to test with
12018-04-28 01:02:22 UTCVictorIE Is this a public library? Not listed here:
12018-04-23 12:00:01 UTCVictorIE I think this should be "Castle Farm" the problem arising from the edge of a map being cropped and the "C" being missing from the 1:25k background map.
22018-04-24 08:18:35 UTCbrianboru Thanks for spotting this error. Please go ahead and correct it ( and any others like this you come across - no need to go through changeset comments for my edits - I'm not precious about them)
12018-04-16 14:17:34 UTCVictorIE In should

access=p be access=private?
12018-03-28 23:48:40 UTCVictorIE Are you happy with this way? It seems to not match the overhead photos and duplicates other ways
12018-03-28 09:33:26 UTCVictorIE Is the section of deleted road correct? this image seems to indicate it should be 50-100 metres further north.

It seems from the photo it is open for pedestrians and cyclist.
12018-03-17 22:35:39 UTCVictorIE Could you take a look at this ?

22018-03-18 11:28:20 UTCDafo43 should be fixed now
12018-01-31 15:30:24 UTCKDDA What is this -
22018-01-31 17:47:44 UTCVictorIE Possibly changed by when a mouse had a spasm.
12018-01-22 05:02:58 UTCVictorIE Is this a Civil Defence or Defence Forces training area?
12018-01-22 04:10:24 UTCVictorIE Hi, what is this relation?

The rest of Luas has operator=Luas - Transdev Dublin Light Rail Limited

Note that operator is the system operator, not the tram driver. With Luas, the system operator is complicated enough to include both names.
22018-01-23 16:55:05 UTCTeester It's a network relation. A super-relation for route masters. It's suggested in JOSM as an option, but I don't think it's an approved relation type on the wiki (, but it's used in several cities. I have one for Dublin Bus as well which ...

22018-01-18 19:59:12 UTCVictorIE I took some photos as I went by on a bus. There have been several changes in the businesses along Arran Quay. I will need to go back and confirm the changes.

12017-12-22 01:45:05 UTCVictorIE Hi,

The water here: seesm to be grossly over-stated. If you zoom in on the 'DigitalGlobe Premium Imagery', it shows the streams as quite modest.
12017-12-19 00:10:29 UTCKDDA Why is this multipolygon tagged as a building?
22017-12-19 00:12:54 UTCKDDA Also, the address should not be Aghadrumsee, it is just the name of the club, not the actual location. The townland is actually Cortrasna.
32017-12-19 21:25:54 UTCVictorIE "Why is this multipolygon tagged as a building?" - possibly because the ID Editor defaults leisure=sports_centre to be buildings and I didn't notice. If I remember correctly, I edited dozens of GAA clubs that day,

12017-12-15 12:44:33 UTCrorym 🏳️‍🌈 You left some untagged ways here

What's going on with them? Maybe best to just delete the ways if the buildings are gone...
22017-12-17 02:37:44 UTCVictorIE Thanks for noting this. Fixed :)

They're demolished buildings. I wanted to note that they were demolished to prevent them being re-mapped.
12017-10-21 01:19:36 UTCVictorIE Could you check these two: - zero area landuse. Taney -> Taney Estate? Not all 'Taney; highways included.

22017-09-23 13:34:37 UTCVictorIE Hi,

Typing error related to not knowing the correct spelling. :) Error fixed.

12017-09-19 18:25:34 UTCVictorIE Wasn't the Camp Field (section south of Old Youghal Road) sold off?
22017-09-20 07:17:34 UTCStabilo_boss It's still in Defence Forces Possession, The Housing was
supposed to be handed over to Cork City Council for Social Housing. but no move yet.
12017-04-19 09:58:21 UTCVictorIE This appears to be on the wrong continent.

12017-09-16 20:07:47 UTCVictorIE This appears to be a duplicate of the river:
12017-09-16 03:32:53 UTCVictorIE Could you check the paths around the lake?

surface=Bing - this seems incorrect.

32017-09-08 23:41:21 UTCTeester I've deleted the duplicate Route 27A relations in changesets #51866689 and #51866735.

52017-09-15 17:26:45 UTCVictorIE Could you check these two?

12017-09-11 15:19:09 UTCHarald Hartmann Hello VictorIE. At you have introduced some new (undocumented) keys (`googleplus`, `soundcloud`, etc.), which has a smell of SEO. So be careful with that ;-) #newkey
22017-09-11 16:06:02 UTCHarald Hartmann or move it all to the `contact`-namespace (
32017-09-11 19:31:20 UTCVictorIE Both methods seem to be in use, e.g. with Facebook:
12017-09-09 23:41:55 UTCVictorIE What does this line represent?
12017-09-02 01:06:17 UTCVictorIE This looks like a duplicate of the townland boundary:
22017-09-02 01:06:49 UTCVictorIE Oh, that said, this line appears to be correct - townland boundary slightly off
12017-08-30 16:54:56 UTCVictorIE Does this road exist?
22017-08-30 21:05:54 UTCmapryan Victor, you're right. I'll go ahead and remove it. Thanks,. Mike
12017-08-29 11:03:06 UTCVictorIE Is this line a duplicate?
12017-08-28 10:39:08 UTCVictorIE Can you check the tags on ? :)
12017-08-27 16:10:58 UTCVictorIE The connection between the N52 and Main Street seems to be missing. Has the layout of Emmet Square changed?

22017-08-29 10:44:50 UTCJord5792 Yes it has changed. They removed the straight connection between N52 and Main street, creating a one way road from Green St./The Green (R439) to MainSt. in front of the Garda Station and a two way from N52 to MainSt. in front of Doolys Hotel. A pedestrian area was made around the statue there.
12017-08-24 22:11:02 UTCVictorIE The edit to this way: seems to have broken the bus / cycle connection from St. Stephen's Green East to Leeson Street Lower
22017-08-25 00:33:27 UTCMacLondon Thanks. I think I have now resolved this issue.
12017-06-24 10:21:20 UTCVictorIE Instead of




be more appropriate?
22017-06-24 20:29:01 UTCLateNightTone Hi VictorIE, no a ford wouldn't be appropriate here as it is a tidal body of water, so the crossing can only be made at low tide. The highway is covered at any other time. A ford is only where a waterway i.e. flowing river is to be crossed, so the highway would be passable in all but flood condition...
12017-06-20 12:35:13 UTCVictorIE When doing pedestrian crossings and other road ways, do make sure that they join up with adjacent roads. :) The geometry and Routing layers here: are good tools.
12017-06-20 04:35:06 UTCVictorIE Is a right turn allowed from Saint Michael's Drive to the R852?
22017-06-23 08:50:50 UTCTimLynch Sorry, don't know
12017-06-14 17:25:17 UTCVictorIE Cool
12017-04-16 15:21:42 UTCKDDA Hi Victor, where did you source the voltage for this line?

It is definitely 33kV or more and I would not class it as a minor line in any sense. Please take a look at it on StreetView
22017-04-16 18:50:16 UTCVictorIE This one?

I don't have a specific recollection. Importantly, it only connects to a 110kV substation at one end.

It seems to be consistent with: and http://smartgriddashboard.eirgr...
32017-04-16 23:08:48 UTCKDDA NIE/ESB have done a lot of work on this line, I think it joins two 110kV substations now and is designed as a "bypass" around Enniskillen.
12017-03-26 05:08:41 UTCVictorIE Is Newtownards Exchange NINT a BT telephone exchange?
12017-03-08 22:26:30 UTCPolarbear Victor, when reverting CS 46496897 with the boundary splitting, I had to include your CS here in the revert.
I attempted to restore useful stuff from both CSs, you might doublecheck.
It would be a good idea to do repairs and own additions in separate CSs, though.
22017-03-08 23:47:28 UTCVictorIE Fair point. I've done a quick tidy up.

I was only drawn to the area by the newly disconnected road of a previous changeset.
32017-03-09 13:11:23 UTCPolarbear Thanks, and no criticism from my side. Reverting is a race against time, as lots of people do small fixes quickly.
Thus just the recommendation when fixing something, upload, before doing regular refinements and uploading them.
12017-03-07 18:16:35 UTCVictorIE Again main road split from side road:
22017-03-08 19:59:40 UTCPolarbear @VictorIE: those will be fixed automatically when I revert the incorrect boundary line separations.
32017-03-08 22:30:34 UTCPolarbear Full revert in CS 46692924 for incorrectly separating roads+waterways serving as border member; restoring useful additions in 46693197, refinements in 46693752.
12017-03-07 18:14:26 UTCVictorIE Hi,

Can you just be careful when splitting boundaries and roads that you don't disconnect roads? This road: became split from the R357.

12017-02-09 11:49:37 UTCKDDA Why did you add the street name as Lacky Road?
22017-02-09 12:45:16 UTCVictorIE Is that not the road it is on?
12016-08-17 06:32:27 UTCmanoharuss Hi VictorIE,

Your contributions to OpenStreetMap are greatly appreciated. I looked through this changeset along with your other changesets 41465760, 41488327, 41488458 to understand what happened here. The wiki for tagging power stations is here(
22016-08-17 08:03:32 UTCVictorIE Hi,

Apologies for the unorthodox method. I've been removing deprecated tags and names. For example: lists operator=ESB (154), operator=ESB Generation and Wholesale Markets (21), operator=ESB Networks (394), operator=ESB Telecoms (3), operator=ESB ec...
32016-08-17 08:27:05 UTCVictorIE has updated. I'll get to work. :)
42016-08-18 13:33:15 UTCVictorIE I'm working on the last set and it should be gone today
12016-03-31 07:45:37 UTCKDDA Is disused the correct tagging for this section? This section has been restored, complete with a train carriage and crossing gates.
22016-03-31 10:11:49 UTCVictorIE From "A section of railway which is no longer used but where the track and infrastructure remain in place."

I can only image "used" should be construed as "used for transport" or a **mobile** museum piece, no...
12015-11-07 16:23:40 UTCPolarbear Hi VictorIE, do you have further details about this club, and who it operates? Would you know if it targets children, juveniles, or both? Is there a website for the club?
22015-11-07 19:38:25 UTCVictorIE I know nothing of it. I only got the details from passing by on the bus. you might try - they might know something. Google doesn't throw up much, but it seems to have been around for a long time.

Alternatively, I presume the city council housing department is their landlord.
12015-10-25 12:17:44 UTCPolarbear sport=gaelic_football is deprecated. As your changeset comment already suggest, the correct tagging is sport=gaelic_games + gaelic_games:hurling=yes

This also avoids using unsupported keys as "sport_1".
22015-10-25 15:35:23 UTCVictorIE If you look at there are 9 "GAA" or "gaelic" tags in use. Last month there had been about 20. I did my best to rationalise them.
32015-10-25 19:30:01 UTCPolarbear Nice. But your goal should be sport=gaelic_games. If you change a freestyle tag into a deprecated one, it would have to be corrected again by somebody else.

Question again, is iD proposing gaelic_football? If so, we would need to file a bug report with iD.
12015-10-25 12:48:41 UTCPolarbear sport=gaelic_football is deprecated. The correct tagging is sport=gaelic_games + gaelic_games:hurling=yes

12015-10-25 12:53:13 UTCPolarbear I've seen the deprecated sport=gaelic_football coming mostly from iD and Potlatch users. Could there be an outdated preset in iD?
22015-10-25 15:30:57 UTCVictorIE If you look at there are 9 "GAA" or "gaelic" tags in use. Last month there had been about 20. I did my best to rationalise them.
12015-10-05 14:30:37 UTCVincent de Phily Sorry, I don't agree with that change (healthcare:speciality -> health:speciality).

The heathcare:speciality tag is the documented one and used 7613 times, vs 6 times for health:speciality.

Please revert that change, unless you have a very convincing argument to transition obkects to the he...
22015-10-05 15:27:37 UTCVictorIE You're correct, my apologies. I was correct a group of mis-spelling sand seem to have put int he wrong spelling. Will sort this evening.
