12017-04-18 08:06:44 UTCSpanholz Hello Andrew,

aren't a lot of those paths you added normal highway=tracks, which can be used as snowmobile paths in the winter?
12017-04-13 21:34:06 UTCSpanholz Welcome to OSM,

Sidewalks need to be connected to streets. Else they will be little islands and can not be used for navigation/routing
12017-04-13 20:32:57 UTCSpanholz Welcome to OSM,

just have a look on large lowercase.

Have fun mapping!
22017-04-13 20:35:05 UTCiandees I think what Spanholz meant is that you should not be afraid to use capital letters when giving something a name. Thanks for your changes, Vespersis!
12017-04-13 20:23:23 UTCSpanholz Please do not add false data to OSM.

I deleted your park.
12017-04-13 20:05:07 UTCSpanholz Welcome to OSM,

you added a lot of sidewalks here. But they are quite useless. Residential roads imply a sidewalk and your sidewalks are not connected to anything...
22017-04-14 03:00:13 UTCbhousel @Spanholz It is acceptable and common to map sidewalks this way in the US.

@dlcook, thank you for your contribution. As Spanholz said, you should connect them to the road network at intersections, ideally with crossing nodes. I will map a few for you around this area so that you can see how it ...
32017-04-14 03:22:09 UTCdlcook Thanks, @Spanholz - I see what you've done here!
12017-04-13 09:04:00 UTCSpanholz Hi Vlad,

on the Fort Antoine 1er (http://osm.org/go/xXYlhE~DJ--?layers=N&m=)is the last remaining landuse=farm in Morocco. You said source=survey in your changeset, maybe you can change this small area as you have local knowledge.

Have fun mapping!

12017-04-11 09:58:25 UTCSpanholz Ich habe mal den Spielplatz nachgetragen und die Fußwege drumrum ergänzt. :)
12017-04-06 20:14:37 UTCSpanholz Why did you map a collision here?
12017-04-03 15:14:33 UTCSpanholz Reverted.
12017-04-03 15:11:54 UTCSpanholz That's already a park. Stop messing with the park-tag!
12017-04-03 15:06:32 UTCSpanholz Welcome to OSM

Thanks for your changes. Could you please instead of long footways try to map multiple footways. They are easier to maintain and to map.

Maybe have a look in the wiki how to connect these sites with their wikipedia article.

Have fun mapping
12017-03-30 13:31:53 UTCSpanholz City limits are display through borders not with a node. What do you wanted to show here?
22017-03-31 14:01:57 UTCcameronstrong i meant to show the city limit sign
32017-03-31 14:08:05 UTCSpanholz Have a look in the wiki: http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:traffic_sign

Most of the stuff we map is expressed through tags so machines (software code) can understand it. If you are not sure how to tag something look in the wiki or to the Netherlands/Germany where OSM is a bit more popular an...
12017-03-30 14:00:43 UTCSpanholz Welcome to OSM,

don't forget to map crossings with Footways. I added this footway so routing will be possible on the footways you added.

https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/483603108#map=19/38.97485/-104.74618

Have fun mapping!
22017-03-31 02:59:38 UTCMrPete Thanks! I was wondering about that. All the crosswalks here generally just had the street nodes marked but no actual crossings. I've fixed most... and will do a sight-survey to see what else is needed. (Helps that I live here ;) )
32017-03-31 08:29:05 UTCSpanholz You don't need to map every sidewalk. Here in Germany in residential areas sidewalks are not mapped because residential roads imply sidewalks. The points were also there for car routing. "Attention crosswalk ahead" or something like that

There is a new app called StreetComplete for And...
42017-03-31 19:36:27 UTCMrPete It's tricky in this neighborhood. Some areas have normal sidewalks. Some have wide curving paths -- at least twice the width of a sidewalk...

I'll take a look at StreetComplete and see how it treats this stuff.

The issue I'm trying to solve: many apps seem to ignore the walkability or bike-abi...
12017-03-30 13:46:11 UTCSpanholz Thanks for cleaning up the waterways in your area!

Have fun mapping!
12017-03-30 13:43:45 UTCSpanholz We only map existing things at OSM. Please reconsider what you have added...

12017-03-30 13:29:38 UTCSpanholz Please have a look on the spelling. And you do not need a node with a park-tagging on an area with park tagging.

Have fun mapping!
22017-03-31 02:48:49 UTCcameronstrong i meant the node to mark the church's sign. im still getting used to the mapping thing and trying to be as accurate as possible.
12017-03-29 14:17:56 UTCSpanholz Stumbled on a park you mapped. Great work!

Always have fun mapping!
12017-03-29 13:58:15 UTCSpanholz You set big parts under water with your changeset here. Do you need help reverting it?
12017-03-29 11:32:13 UTCSpanholz Welcome to OSM

thanks for your changes and have fun mapping!
12017-03-29 11:24:21 UTCSpanholz Please! Stop adding imaginery parks, which are just pieces of grass along buildings.
12017-03-28 13:00:45 UTCSpanholz Hey, I did a little maproulette and saw that you somehow twisted the railways at this point: http://www.openstreetmap.org/way/249747250

Maybe you can change the both railway spurs easily
12017-03-28 08:47:07 UTCAlaskaDave I can not find any references to the Dr Suess House at this location. Can you tell me how you located this place?

All the items I found in a Google search seem to be near Willow, on the north side of Willow Creek
22017-03-28 09:12:50 UTCSpanholz I got the rough location from somebody on reddit who was there. But I have looked at the area and found the real house a bit south of it.

Already changed it to correct location. Thanks for correcting me. :)
32017-03-28 09:30:26 UTCAlaskaDave Yes, I found it too. But we're both trying to correct it at the same time LOL

it's here:
62.03923364985006, -150.08611523313525

Can you hold off for a moment to let me upload my changes and we'll see if there's any disagreement.
42017-03-28 10:08:43 UTCAlaskaDave Okay, we did it!

Keep on mapping!
12017-03-28 09:10:31 UTCSpanholz Correct changeset name: Relocated Dr. Seuss House, Aligned roads in the area
12017-03-28 08:36:54 UTCSpanholz Hi,

There was already a Rite-Aid pharmacy added here.
12017-03-28 08:31:40 UTCSpanholz Nice accurate mapping!
12017-03-28 08:28:09 UTCSpanholz Thanks for cleaning up vandalizing changesets.
12017-03-28 08:26:41 UTCSpanholz Welcome to OSM

could you please connect the footways to the streets. If they are not attached to anything they can not be used for routing and they will be treated like little islands.

Thanks!
12017-03-28 08:25:11 UTCSpanholz Wme to OSM,

you changed a street here to highway=pedestrian, can you change it back please and could you please remap those footways in the park with correct taggings?

Thanks!
12017-03-28 08:06:13 UTCSpanholz Welcome to OSM,

I saw you added a footway north of the middle/high school. It's not connected to any other way. So it will not be used for routing etc. Maybe connect it or delete it. Residential roads imply sidewalks in my eyes.
12017-03-28 07:56:06 UTCSpanholz Welcome to OSM,

please use the tag man_made=mast for cell phone towers. Have a look in the wiki if you are unsure.

The name tag is used for official names like "Smiths Bakery".
12017-03-27 17:20:45 UTCSpanholz Hey,

could you please have a look at your changes? You changed the name of the driveway here. Unfortunately all in captions. The tag of the road seems also a bit wrong.
22017-03-27 17:21:32 UTCSpanholz Please also don't delete tracks even if they are private. Than just change their acess-tag
32017-03-28 14:00:56 UTCAKWells I changed the name to mixed-case, although officially all the road names are capitalized.
12017-03-26 15:01:03 UTCSpanholz Welcome to OSM,

you added the value "restaurant" to that street. I changed it back, maybe try to add the restaurant another way.
12017-03-26 14:48:42 UTCSpanholz Welcome to OSM,

thanks for your additions. Could you please connect the footways next time? Quite important for routing. Thanks!
12017-03-24 12:19:11 UTCSpanholz Thanks for your additions to OSM. I also mapped a bit in Altoona and aligned some streets etc.

Have fun mapping!
12017-03-24 10:17:59 UTCSpanholz You tried to add a driveway here, but you forget to give the line a tagging. Just pick the right highway-type on left side of the editor.
12017-03-24 10:16:13 UTCSpanholz I wouldn't map sidewalks seperately. This only adds complexity and residential streets imply sidewalks in my eyes.

Have a look at this example what happens when footwalks are not connected to streets: http://www.openstreetmap.org/directions?engine=mapzen_foot&route=43.06227%2C-86.23101%3B43....
12017-03-24 10:11:45 UTCSpanholz You have connect streets and footways. Only then they will be used for routing.
12017-03-24 10:10:38 UTCSpanholz Welcome to OSM,

feel free to delete non-existing roads and change them from residential roads to unclassified roads.

Have fun mapping!
12017-03-24 10:04:14 UTCSpanholz Please only add existing paths to OSM.
12017-03-24 08:56:52 UTCSpanholz Impressive work! Looks really good. Could you please also change the highway=residential to highway=unclassified outside of towns. This would benefit routing software and is more accurate.

Thanks and have fun mapping!
22017-03-24 18:47:57 UTCZhade Will do. Thanks for the tip! :)
12017-03-23 18:25:51 UTCSpanholz What did you add here? Can you delete this line?
12017-03-23 18:20:30 UTCSpanholz Please do not add imaginery parks to OSM. We map only existing stuff.
12017-03-23 18:18:01 UTCSpanholz Welcome to OSM,

if you see footways, which are not connected to streets at the ends or when they intersect could you please connect them? Only then routing is possible.
Thanks and Have fun mapping!
12017-03-23 14:53:40 UTCSpanholz Welcome to OSM,

you added a lot of residential roads in parking areas. Please have a look at the tagging for roads. They are more like highway=service. Could you please change this?
12017-03-21 14:49:20 UTCSpanholz Welcome to OSM

you have to connect the footways to the streets and to each other. Else they will not be used for routing.

Have fun mapping
22017-03-22 02:42:21 UTCGerkRombas That is actually where that particular part of the trail ends. It doesn't go to the street.
32017-03-22 09:58:38 UTCSpanholz I meant the parts of the footways, which ended a little bit in front of the roads. Like the one at River Birch Road.
12017-03-21 14:56:02 UTCSpanholz I hope you put a lot of effort in it. It is a pleasure to delete this stuff in 10s.

Please only add existing things to OSM. This is no playground.
12017-03-20 20:49:23 UTCSpanholz Impressive edits,

thanks for joining and contributing to OSM!
12017-03-20 20:47:27 UTCSpanholz Welcome to OSM,

you can also change the classification of the road to highway=unclassified which is way better than the residential road which is everywhere.

Thanks and have fun mapping.
12017-03-20 20:22:31 UTCSpanholz Welcome to OSM,

you added a lot of sidewalks here. But they are kind of useless because they are not connected to the streets.

Here an example why: https://www.openstreetmap.org/directions?engine=graphhopper_foot&route=43.02394%2C-77.71901%3B43.02402%2C-77.71891
12017-03-20 09:34:27 UTCSpanholz Incredible detail,

just one thing: I wouldn't map the inner town parts completly with landuse=grass. Never seen that and it doesn't fit to the wiki: http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:landuse%3Dgrass

12017-03-20 09:27:19 UTCSpanholz I deleted the misused items around "your" house. Please stick to adding real things to OSM. Your other edits are really welcome but please do not map to get a favor at Pokemon Go!
12017-03-20 09:21:38 UTCSpanholz Your changes go live immediately after you upload them. Please refrain from such changes in the future.

There is enough you can map in Boise City to improve it
12017-03-20 09:15:10 UTCSpanholz You also added a lot of highway=unclassified here. Those are for streets/roads. But mostly they are footways, I changed that.
12017-03-20 09:12:08 UTCSpanholz Welcome to OSM,

your footways do not connect to the streets. So routing on them is not possible, could you please change that?

I don't think that landuse=meadow is correct, because it's only used for agriculture, maybe change it to landuse=grass.

Thanks and have fun mapping!
12017-03-20 09:02:45 UTCSpanholz No need to delete it. Just change it to highway=service and access to private, then it's a private driveway.

12017-03-20 09:01:15 UTCSpanholz Welcome to OSM,

but is there a footway between those streets? Or path? Please add it, so pedestrians or cyclists do not have to detour.

Have fun mapping!
22017-03-20 15:36:24 UTCejlane No, there is not. There are now houses that take up where the road used to be (kind of) and it is their yards. It is private, with fences and everything. Here is Google street view looking south from the north end.

12017-03-16 22:38:29 UTCSpanholz Welcome to OSM,

to make something rectangular with the editor you used you can use the shortcut "S"

Have fun mapping!
12017-03-16 22:37:20 UTCSpanholz Thanks for your hard work, getting OSM updated!

Have fun mapping
12017-03-16 22:35:23 UTCSpanholz Welcome to OSM,

I connected the streets with the footways so routing will be possible. Otherwise your footways will be treated like "little islands"

Have fun mapping, Spanholz
12017-03-16 22:17:28 UTCSpanholz Welcome to OSM,

thanks for your changes. I connected the footways to the street so routing will be possible.

22017-03-17 18:17:20 UTCEric Liga Thank you for the help!
12017-03-16 21:58:32 UTCSpanholz Welcome to OSM,

I deleted your parks, you probably know why.
Do not add imaginery stuff to OSM.
12017-03-16 14:49:33 UTCSpanholz Welcome to OSM,

great accuracy and very good additions!
Maybe also have a look on the alignment of the roads and how they are tagged, residential street is not always right in rural areas.

Have fun mapping Spanholz
12017-03-16 14:39:46 UTCSpanholz Really, the whole area a park? Please do not add imaginery things to OSM. This is a project which benefits a lot of people over the world.

I will check your recent changesets.
12017-03-16 14:38:24 UTCSpanholz Welcome to OSM.

great additions. Could you please change the road tags at those streets outside of the town from "residential" to "unclassified". That's a more accurate and will help with routing.

Thanks and have fun mapping!
12017-03-16 14:35:56 UTCSpanholz Welcome to OSM,

as long as those driveways are accurate I wouldn't delete them. It's more important that you change the road tag of those streets here. Currently they are highway=road, which doesn't exist. I would change them to highway=residential

Have fun mapping!
12017-03-14 23:23:47 UTCSpanholz Please remap this area if this is a park.

You marked a whole residential area as a park.
22017-03-14 23:26:33 UTCCJ Pegues Whoops! Meant to tag it as residental, and retag the park as a park. My bad!
32017-03-14 23:38:40 UTCSpanholz No problem. Currently a lot of users add fake parks to get an advantage at Pokemon Go. :(
42017-03-14 23:46:48 UTCCJ Pegues Ugh. The worst. I play PoGo as well, and using OSM tags to help find nests was one of the big reasons I started actively using it. Now I'm just adding parks that I know aren't on here, as well as personal favorite trails. (Bell Lake, that nice trail all the way round riverwinds)
52017-03-15 10:04:51 UTCSpanholz Some tips: North of this park are some footways, which you can delete as they are not connected to the streets and footwalks are often better mapped as part of the street.
12017-03-14 23:19:42 UTCSpanholz Welcome to OSM,

if this area is a real park please draw an area around it and mark it as one with a name. The better your area is mapped the better the results will be!

Have fun mapping!
12017-03-14 23:12:19 UTCSpanholz I will keep deleting your parks. Please use your time to contribute only exisiting stuff.
12017-03-14 23:09:37 UTCSpanholz Welcome back to OSM

Could you please also change highway=residential to highway=unclassified for roads outside of cities? This would make a huge step forward for better routing.

Thanks and have fun mapping!
12017-03-14 23:03:30 UTCSpanholz Welcome to OSM,

your changes are very appreciated as your area is not very well mapped. Please also change the roads from Highway=residential to highway=unclassified if they are not in residential areas.

If you need any help just contact me.

Have fun mapping!
12017-03-14 15:07:59 UTCSpanholz I edited your footways. Footways that cross each other should be connected, otherwise there will be no routing along them.

12017-03-14 15:03:56 UTCSpanholz Welcome to OSM,

I changed your footways a bit so that they comply with the OSM tagging. The outer ring around the park are sidewalks which are "included" in the Streets.
12017-03-09 21:35:37 UTCSpanholz Please add data according to the OSM standards. One big park is better than a lot of small neighbouring ones. Footways should be connected to each other.
12017-03-09 21:11:11 UTCSpanholz I changed that lake to a pool. Please only use the right tags. If you are not sure have a look in the wiki.

12017-03-09 20:49:03 UTCSpanholz Welcome to OSM,

you added a parking lot here. Please have a look at the tagging. The name tag should be filled with an offical name like "Lot A"

If you are unsure how to tag something have a look in the wiki.
12017-03-09 20:38:32 UTCSpanholz I will delete this name as we are not allowed to copy any data from Google Maps. Maybe take a survey on the ground or else but please do not copy from Google.

Copyright etc.

Thanks and have fun mapping
12017-03-09 11:13:16 UTCSpanholz Welcome to OSM,

I saw you created a lot of paths and sidewalks. Please make sure that everytime they cross a street or another path they are connected. Else there will be no routing possible and they would be quite useless.
22017-03-09 17:17:38 UTCsnakeo Thanks, I am still working on all of the area.

So what I think you are saying is to end the path at the intersection and then continue on. just don't go over it, unless it is like an underpass. I will fix any. Thanks for the tip.
32017-03-09 17:27:50 UTCSpanholz Yeah, you could see the problem here:

22017-03-09 15:01:21 UTCYonaimy Thank you very much for the info :)
12017-03-09 10:47:53 UTCSpanholz Welcome to OSM, are you sure this is a park and not just a piece of grass? It's quite small.
12017-03-08 09:41:21 UTCSpanholz Welcome to OSM,

I changed the park a little bit to match it with the OSM tagging and to met it the quality standards.

Have fun mapping!
12017-03-08 09:29:49 UTCSpanholz Welcome to OSM,

your added footwalk was not connected to any streets or other footways. I changed that, so routing engines can use the footway.

Have fun mapping!
12017-03-08 09:26:11 UTCSpanholz Welcome to OSM,

I remapped this park according to OSM standards. Maybe have a look.
12017-03-08 09:19:48 UTCSpanholz Welcome to OSM,

this sidewalk was not connected to any streets. Without a connection there will be no routing possible on sidewalks. Normally roads are considered to have sidewalks, that's why they are often not mapped extra.
12017-03-06 23:27:30 UTCSpanholz You linked to the Library in Warsaw, Poland. Is there a wikipedia entry for the Library in Warsaw, NY?
22017-03-07 03:20:08 UTCJoshua Herman @Spanholz: that's what i get for not checking my links. thanks for pointing this out. will update now.
12017-03-06 12:38:08 UTCSpanholz Welcome to OSM,

please connect those footways to streets else there will be no pedestrian routing. Also use multiple short footways instead of one long one.

I changed this park according to the OSM standards.

Have fun mapping!
12017-03-06 12:29:45 UTCSpanholz Welcome back to OSM!
12017-03-06 12:28:40 UTCSpanholz Welcome to OSM,

you added a very long note to this road. Those notes are only for mappers and can not be seen by normal users. Maybe just add the addresses normally as points at those buildings. Maybe, if you want to, also add the shape of the buildings as areas.

Reply and maybe I can help you...
12017-03-06 12:18:07 UTCSpanholz Hello,

why are you adding so much eleveation informations along this road? Is there any purpose behind it?

Is it for Strava or something else?
22017-03-06 16:37:02 UTCptal_io Hi. The elevation data added here is true elevation data for the road as calculated through the methods described in this paper: http://grantmckenzie.com/academics/ISED_2017.pdf (see previous changeset as well).

This was a sample road to show that adding elevation to OSM ways can have some value...
12017-03-06 12:09:47 UTCSpanholz Welcome to OSM,

please connect footways to roads, where they met each other. Only then pedestrian routing is possible.

12017-03-06 12:04:05 UTCSpanholz I changed this back to a road. That's not a footway because then there would be no cars allowed to drive here. Have a look at the wiki if you are unsure how to tag something.

Have fun with OSM!
12017-03-06 12:01:16 UTCSpanholz Welcome to OSM,

you added a hospital at this place. I deleted it. Maybe also have a look to connect the railway with the street and add a level_crossing at this node. It's always a dark symbol when they are connected and a lighter one, when the level_crossing is placed wrong.
22017-03-06 13:08:14 UTCMon12113 Thanks for the change. I did it on accident and thought I undid it but apparently I didnt undo it enough before saving
12017-03-06 11:45:40 UTCSpanholz Welcome to OSM,

you added some ponds with this changeset. But you forgot a tag, so they were not rendered correct. I added the missing tag

Ponds need: natural= water and water=pond

Keep up the good work and have fun with OpenStreetMap!
22017-03-06 14:32:57 UTCJoshua Herman Thanks for the correction! Appreciate it.
12017-03-02 18:01:04 UTCSpanholz What are you doing here? Military checkpoints T-Rex stuff? Is this fantasy? Please only add existing stuff to OSM. So please delete imaginery things and start mapping existing landmarks.
22017-03-02 18:29:45 UTCbradleehale These are the official names/points as described by the owners of the off-road park. Using the maps from their website as a reference.
http://www.wolfcaves.com/maps.html
32017-03-02 19:10:10 UTCSpanholz Thanks for your fast response. My fault for accusing you to add false data. I wouldn't call these points military checkpoints.

Maybe you can add those ways as: highway=track + 4wd_only=yes

For those points maybe ask at https://help.openstreetmap.org/ but it's definetly no army checkpoint ;)
12017-03-01 16:44:11 UTCSpanholz Probably from your early days as a mapper, a turning circle instead of a level crossing. Changed it!

Have fun mapping :)
12017-03-01 11:16:51 UTCSpanholz Wilkommen bei OSM,

schön, dass du ein paar POIs hinzugefügt hast!

Viel Spaß beim Mappen!
12017-03-01 11:09:21 UTCSpanholz Welcome to OSM,

if the longer name is the official one we use that one in OSM. Local names are used also with loc_name=The armory

Maybe have a look in the wiki: http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:name

Have fun mapping!
12017-03-01 10:59:32 UTCSpanholz Better use multiple ways to map this cemetery and use the correct tag, this is probably no residential street. If it is one it's creepy.

I remapped it, have a look how it should look.

Have fun mapping!
12017-03-01 10:45:18 UTCSpanholz Great work and welcome to OSM,

I connected the footways to the streets. Otherwise they will be useless and can not be used for routing. Have fun mapping!
12017-03-01 10:38:54 UTCSpanholz I changed your footpath a bit and connected it to the streets. Some tips:
1. Footways should be connected to streets otherwise they will not be used for routing etc.
2. It's better to have multiple connected footways instead of one long way, which twists and turns (maybe have a look at my changes\...
12017-02-28 12:27:58 UTCSpanholz I deleted the pool and the walkway, normally sidewalks are seen as a part of the street. So routing will be possible along them.

Please add only existing stuff to OSM, the satellite imagery is good enough to realy improve the map.
12017-02-28 12:24:13 UTCSpanholz You added a park, which is probably on your home. Please do not add imaginery parks etc. to get any advantage in Pokemon Go.

But keep on mapping real stuff, which is really appreciated. The better the data, the more it's likely it will be used in any way.

12017-02-27 13:11:46 UTCSpanholz Kannst du die Häuser rechteckig machen bevor du sie hochlädst, dass entspricht eher dem relen Zustand. Geht mit dem Editor per Tastenkürzel "s"

Danke und viel Spaß mit OpenStreetMap!

12017-02-24 13:23:23 UTCSpanholz Nice, but deleted. There is no castle!

12017-02-24 13:18:30 UTCSpanholz Your added footway in the Silver Creek Park looks awful. It's not connected to other streets and I can't see any footway like this on the satellite imagery. I gonna delete it, please add a better version if it's really existing
12017-02-24 12:59:08 UTCSpanholz I deleted your changes, please add only existing stuff to OSM! You could align the streets in your area or add building shapes instead of wasting everyones time with useless data.
12017-02-21 12:38:03 UTCSpanholz Welcome to OSM,

great changes, maybe you can add some detail to the park if you want. Like footways, baseball fields etc.

Have fun mapping Spanholz
12017-02-21 12:34:44 UTCSpanholz Welcome to OSM,

I reverted some of your additions. Please do not delete points which are correct, the park is already marked correctly. Better add some footways etc.

12017-02-21 12:26:00 UTCSpanholz Is the building name really 100 or is it the adress?
12017-02-20 16:32:17 UTCSpanholz Faslcher Changesetkommenar, hier der richtige:

12017-02-16 11:22:52 UTCSpanholz I just reverted your changes, you probably know why. Restrain from adding non-existing stuff to OSM.
12017-02-16 11:13:14 UTCSpanholz Thanks for adding those trails to OSM,

great work!
I changed the tag from footway to path. Footways are for urban ways and path is the best for hiking trails. Have a look here: http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:highway%3Dpath

Have fun mapping!
12017-02-16 11:08:29 UTCSpanholz Welcome to OSM,

please always connect traffic streams that interact. Like the cycleway when it's crossing the street. Only then routing will be possible because the routing engine will know than that those two are connected.

Thanks and have fun mapping

Spanholz
12017-02-16 11:02:00 UTCSpanholz Welcome to OSM,

could you please connect streets and footways when they interact. Else there will be little routing islands and you will not be able to use pedestrian routing in a useful way.

Have fun mapping!
12017-02-14 19:20:10 UTCSpanholz Welcome to OSM,

Could you please connect the footways to the streets. Else they will be useless as they are little routing islands. Also have a look here: http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:sidewalk

Spanholz
12017-02-08 08:43:40 UTCSpanholz Welcome to OSM,

you added some footways, but maybe they are more like paths - http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:highway%3Dpath

Have fun mapping!
12017-02-08 08:09:41 UTCSpanholz The park looks great! Well mapped!
12017-02-07 19:40:43 UTCSpanholz Welcome to OSM,

you added a lot of footways, but please connect them with the streets. Else there will be no routing possible and will be quite useless.

You also cut Old Madison Pike in half, south of the park, could you fix it?
12017-02-07 19:21:56 UTCSpanholz You added three water wells here, are you sure? What do you wanted to add?
12017-02-05 13:06:02 UTCSpanholz Hey welcome to OSM,

you marked the whole area of the church as a building. Can you just pack the rectangular area around the real church building?

Thanks :)
12017-02-05 12:58:47 UTCSpanholz Welcome to OSM,

You changed the street to a footway. But there are clearly cars on it. So I changed it back to a residential street.

I connected the footways to the streets. Only connected ways allow routing. Else they will be "islands"
12017-02-04 11:27:03 UTCSpanholz Welcome to OSM,

Welcome to Openstreetmap. Your contributions to OSM are appreciated. It has been great to see new users show interest in OSM and map their neighborhoods. But I have found few issues I would like to raise. This is not a park https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/225823488/history as ...

please connect the footways to the streets. I made some changes at the McKinley Park. Only connected streets allow routing.
12017-02-01 22:55:36 UTCwoodpeck Please explain why this was downgraded from service road to footpath?
22017-02-02 13:17:19 UTCSpanholz He still changes roads to footways, for example in the cemetery above.
12017-02-02 09:28:38 UTCSpanholz
Welcome to OSM,

I changed some of your additions.
There are no Footways in Parking spaces. Don't know why you added them. Also footways must be connected to streets to allow routing. I added some paths east of Peck Park.
12017-02-02 09:16:44 UTCSpanholz I changed this to leisure=nature_reserve. This area is no skatepark.
12017-02-02 08:29:03 UTCSpanholz Welcome to OSM,

I am assuming you are mentioning some of my open ends that I haven't tied up yet? Also, footways connecting to a crossing, to another path thru the street is acceptable, ...
32017-02-01 08:34:59 UTCSpanholz Impressing work! I changed the crossing South 5th Street/Clinton Street to give you an example.

Are there really zebra crossings there? If yes, then it's mapped right.
If not, then just a highway=crossing.But I'm not familiar with the laws in the US.

Have a look here: https://wiki.openstree...
42017-02-01 08:50:43 UTCBigFreaky Those crossings would probably have zebra if they were to be made in the last 5ish years. They are ped crossing, and typically have at least lines.

12017-01-26 10:01:10 UTCSpanholz Well, it was just two ore three tags of the airport, but you deleted also the city boundaries. I will try to recover it.
22017-01-28 21:47:22 UTCbarclay78 When is this going to be updated?
32017-01-28 21:51:44 UTCSpanholz It's already been back in the database. I reverted it. Click on the city border in the editor. It's back without a airport tag.
42017-01-28 21:58:55 UTCbarclay78 Zoomed to 2 KM scale Bryan is still showing up as an airport. There's an airplane symbol showing up underneath the city name.
52017-01-28 22:02:59 UTCSpanholz Changes on lower zoom levels aren't displayed. Those tiles are only rendered once in a while. Maybe also clear your browser cache.
62017-02-03 01:27:17 UTChewhoeatsall423 @Spanholz, thank you for fixing any mistakes I have made. I can revert it, if necessary.

However, I believe barclay78 is asking how long it will take to get the whole town to stop showing up as an airport. Pokemon Go (an AR game you play in the real world) uses data from OSM. It is believed that ...
72017-02-03 02:46:36 UTCbarclay78 I gave up on it yesterday. Kind of frustrated with the lack of support from Niantic. They should know this kind of stuff could happen.

32017-01-28 20:13:42 UTCSpanholz You added a lot of lakes and ponds in your area, which is great. But sometimes you only mapped the rough shape. So I wanted to ask you to map them a bit more in detail.

There are a lot of non-exisiting streets in your town, feel free to delete them and...
12017-01-25 17:33:16 UTCscai "Blasetestpark"? Was soll das sein? Das ist doch bestimmt kein offizieller Name. "Anwohnerpark" ebenso. Bitte beide Namen entfernen.

22017-01-25 17:36:36 UTCscai Ich denke auch nicht dass diese Grünflächen als "Park" durchgehen.
32017-01-25 18:23:20 UTCscai Deine Wege sind leider auch nicht überall mit den anderen Wegen verbunden. An anderen stellen verlaufen sie über andere Wege, aber es fehlen Kreuzungsknoten. Dadurch ist kein korrektes Routing möglich.

Please connect streets with footways, else there will be no routing and they only look "nice" on some maps.

Thanks
12017-01-27 09:53:09 UTCSpanholz Can you connect crossing footway with streets please. Only than routing will work.
22017-01-27 09:55:40 UTCSpanholz I've made an example for West Mohawk Drive/Dublin Road. Are there really zebra crossings? If not, just connect them.

Welcome to OSM.
12017-01-27 09:21:06 UTCSpanholz Please connect the path to the street and maybe change the type to "path", which is more accurate.
22017-01-27 11:33:47 UTCDonalaid With this path, the path actually runs right beside the road and does not permit motor vehicles, especially in certain areas.

22017-01-27 00:03:39 UTCHockeymaskbob The path dosn't connect to the street, it connects to the parking lot, should I still connect it to the street? Even though it would be incorrect?
32017-01-27 09:07:46 UTCSpanholz Have a look how I changed the footways. I if a footway is crossing a street connect them.
12017-01-27 02:35:51 UTCMangatang Was this in relation to the whole town showing as an airport? If I zoom out enough, it still shows the whole town as an airport, https://www.openstreetmap.org/changeset/45507497#map=12/41.4879/-84.5103

12017-01-26 16:08:01 UTCSpanholz Hey IzakS,

that's probably a School lesson for geography. No need to be overly accurate when mapping buildings. And you don't need to map the roofs you see from the satellite imagery. Just the outline.
12017-01-26 14:16:25 UTCSpanholz More a footway than a path ;)

Welcome to OSM.
12017-01-26 14:15:01 UTCSpanholz Looks good, normally you don't need footways along streets. Have a look at the wiki for more information on sideways.

12017-01-26 14:05:50 UTCSpanholz Welcome to OSM,

could you please connect the footways to streets. Only then routing for pedestrians is possible.
12017-01-26 09:45:07 UTCSpanholz Welcome to OSM!

Great contributions!
22017-01-26 09:51:17 UTCSpanholz Little tip, connect footways and streets, so routing software will be able to do pedestrian navigation.
12017-01-26 09:31:11 UTCSpanholz Welcome to OSM,

I would say it's a reservoir:
http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Proposed_features/Water_details

with

natural=water
water=reservoir\t

Hope you like OpenStreetMap and have fun mapping

12017-01-25 19:36:41 UTCmacac013 There is a pond there. With fountains in it. It can be seen on this image (the first image on google when searching for the complex). http://images.apartmenthomeliving.com/CA/Bakersfield/1972040/161019/Villa-Sienna-Apartment-Homes-Apartments-Bakersfield-CA-photo-01.jpg as well as this one http://www...
22017-01-25 19:38:12 UTCSpanholz I stand corrected and want to say sorry!

22017-01-25 19:16:33 UTCmacac013 should I upload a photo of it? I live by it and walk by it daily. Perhaps fishpond is the improper term, but there is a man-made body of water there that encircles the pool structure and has fountains in it. I am aware of what openstreetmap is, and am not treating it as a playground.
32017-01-25 19:31:51 UTCSpanholz If it's like that I'm really sorry. But I deleted a ton of ponds in someones backyard because they wanted to cheat in Pokemon Go. Maybe you understand my anger.
42017-01-25 19:39:48 UTCmacac013 I understand your anger. It is fully justified.
12017-01-25 18:45:13 UTCSpanholz Great! Have fun with OSM
12017-01-25 09:11:18 UTCSpanholz Welcome to OSM!

32017-01-25 18:43:59 UTCSpanholz Little tip: connect the sidewalks/footways to the streets. So routing software can use them and pedestrian routing will work great in the future.
42017-01-25 18:44:23 UTCSpanholz If you are not sure how to map have a look in the OSM wiki

22017-01-25 16:05:56 UTCkarmakrazy412 I understand that it is no playground, and I am fully aware of how important the data is. That is why I am taking the time out to make the map better in my area, it is outdated and a lot of changes need to be made, just doing what I can to help
32017-01-25 16:14:40 UTCSpanholz Have a look at: https://blog.openstreetmap.org/2016/12/30/tips-pokemon-go/

Footways are are not connected to streets, it's usually implied that streets have sideways. The "name tag" is usually for official names, like "McDonalds" or "Hoover Dam".

Tip: Exclude data...
42017-01-25 16:16:02 UTCkarmakrazy412 That is very helpful! Thank you!
12017-01-25 09:30:13 UTCSpanholz Looks more like a track in some parts, maybe have a look at:

http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:highway%3Dtrack
22017-01-25 15:42:10 UTCCartographerOfTheNorth I appreciate your input. Although it may appear to look like a track, this is strictly a hiking trail, with no vehicles of any kind allowed.
32017-01-25 15:59:05 UTCSpanholz Ah, for trails it's preferred to use http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:highway%3Dpath

Footways are mostly inside of parks in inner cities.
42017-01-25 15:59:21 UTCSpanholz Great that you found your way to OSM :)
12017-01-25 15:24:02 UTCSpanholz Stop adding wrong data to OSM.
12017-01-25 15:20:36 UTCSpanholz There is no park, it's landuse=grass
12017-01-25 15:10:07 UTCSpanholz Hi,

I deleted this "mountain" because it's not really useful. Name tag was wrong and the shape was also a Self-intersecting polygon.

please do not connect the park with the streets. If we want to change something in the future it's a lot of work to deconnect hem.

Thanks, and have fun mapping
12017-01-25 14:50:22 UTCSpanholz Welcome to OSM

There a lot of lines without actual tags. Could you please clean up the park a little bit.
22017-01-25 16:22:56 UTCNomadSaint added description to lines/roads
12017-01-25 13:32:17 UTCSpanholz Welcome to OSM,

your additions to OSM were a bit inaccurate and not conform to the normal mapping practice. Maybe have a look how I changed Central Park

12017-01-25 10:53:13 UTCSpanholz Welcome to OSM,

I changed to tags to footway in this area. Seems to be more appropriate:

12017-01-25 10:48:17 UTCSpanholz Welcome to OSM.

12017-01-25 10:41:06 UTCSpanholz Welcome to OSM,

great that you help us to improve the map.

Could you please connect the footways to streets so routing engines can actually use them, (Important if you want pedestrian routing)

Thanks and have fun mapping
12017-01-25 10:31:40 UTCSpanholz Hey,

I saw your recent addings of footways and connected them to streets, so routing software will be able to use them.

Have fun mapping!
12017-01-25 08:26:01 UTCSpanholz Please only add existing canals to OSM. Are there really culverts?
22017-01-25 09:22:26 UTCwdbrs There are a TON of culverts here.

32017-01-25 10:11:43 UTCSpanholz Nothing wrong and welcome to OSM.

You didn't do anything wrong.

Didn't know that' you were using a open database as source. Problem is that there are currently tons of Pokemon Go players adding lakes in their houses to cheat.

I only connected the footway to the parking lot.
42017-01-25 10:32:01 UTCwdbrs Ah ok. I was thinking that it was something like that, but I really can't make sense of the changeset edit history online. I was thinking I'd have to compare nodes between our edits to find overlaps or something to see if you changed my additions. I saw you elsewhere removed swimming pool "l...
12017-01-25 09:39:58 UTCSpanholz Welcome to OSM,

those paths are probably footways and should be connected to the streets.

Have fun mapping Spanholz

That's not a park!

12017-01-25 09:27:04 UTCSpanholz I deleted your changes please only add existing stuff to OSM.
12017-01-25 09:13:57 UTCSpanholz The park looks great!

Have fun mapping!
12017-01-25 09:09:13 UTCSpanholz Welcome to OSM,

I connected your footways to the streets so routing machines can use them.

Have fun mapping.
12017-01-25 09:06:07 UTCSpanholz Welcome to OSM,

Please only add real parks. You don't need to give a perfect description, and also have a look what the name tag means.

I changed some of your additions.
12017-01-25 09:00:14 UTCSpanholz More like landuse=grass than a meadow, please have a look at the OSM wiki.
12017-01-25 08:57:43 UTCSpanholz That's a private swimming pool. No lake. Please have a look at the OSM wiki:

http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:leisure%3Dswimming_pool
12017-01-25 08:56:04 UTCSpanholz Those are not meadows, please only add real existing stuff to OSM.

I reverted your changes.
12017-01-25 08:52:08 UTCSpanholz I reverted your changes. Stop contributing false data!
12017-01-25 08:49:21 UTCSpanholz Deleted. Please only map what's on the ground.
12017-01-25 08:47:32 UTCSpanholz The park was perfect, stop vandalizing.
12017-01-25 08:40:05 UTCSpanholz That's not a park. Please stop contributing for your own well-being.
12017-01-25 08:37:41 UTCSpanholz Please only add existing ditches. I reverted your changes, if there is a small ditch mark it with a simple line.

12017-01-25 08:24:02 UTCSpanholz Welcome to OSM,

please connect footways to streets so routing engines can use them. (and they are probably connected in real world...)

12017-01-24 22:48:07 UTCSpanholz I reverted nearly all your changes! Stop vandalizing the map.
12017-01-24 22:40:54 UTCSpanholz I had to delete your "park". Your backyard is probably not a park.

Please add only whats on the ground to OSM and keep our database clean.

https://blog.openstreetmap.org/2016/12/30/tips-pokemon-go/
12017-01-24 22:26:52 UTCSpanholz Welcome to OSM,

that's just landuse = grass http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:landuse%3Dgrass

Please have a look at the tagging, maybe add the footways around the house.
12017-01-24 15:52:15 UTCSpanholz Welcome to OSM,

I saw your recent addings and I changed a little bit. Some of your footways were doubled and some were not connected to streets. Maybe have a look at this blog post, https://blog.openstreetmap.org/2016/12/30/tips-pokemon-go/

Happy mapping!
22017-01-24 19:05:34 UTCflarpnoodle Thank you, I appreciate the help! I'll check it out! I think I've done the right thing in restoring Texas Trail of Trees park - although it isn't marked as such in Google Maps or other mapping resources, it does exist.
12017-01-24 15:46:13 UTCSpanholz Welcome to OSM,

please only add what's on the ground. Pokemon are probably no part of your city life.

Have a look at this blog post: https://blog.openstreetmap.org/2016/12/30/tips-pokemon-go/

I changed some of your recent addings according to the rules of OSM.
12017-01-24 14:24:28 UTCSpanholz Hey,

welcome to OSM. I changed your addition a bit. It's easier to change things afterwards if you do not connnect the park area with the streets. But paths and footways should always connect to streets so routing software will be able to use them.

Hoping for more additions!

32017-01-20 14:30:15 UTCSpanholz There are a lot of ponds and forests etc. near your house. Maybe add them.
12017-01-15 20:19:37 UTCSpanholz Can you connect the trails to the streets please. Only if they are connected a routing will work
