12018-05-04 09:58:18 UTCmarinad_telenav Hi. I saw that you added the road name for some of the roads ( Melting Snow Way).
Do you have any information about the roads in this area? Because I saw on satellite imagery that are now finished but I don't have the information about the road name
22018-05-04 21:45:11 UTCYour Village Maps Wow. That was almost 5 years ago. Time flies. I live in far SE Denver and sometimes make trips to Castle Rock for mapping and recreation. I don't specifically recall this street, but I probably saw it when I was there.
32018-05-07 06:26:57 UTCmarinad_telenav Hi. I know it was 5 year ago, but I was thinking if you are a local maybe you know some available open source data.
42018-05-07 20:45:06 UTCYour Village Maps I don't really remember that particular street. I might have seen a street sign; sometimes they get put up even before the street opens. Or maybe Douglas County GIS.
12018-03-12 14:43:06 UTCchachafish Greetings, again :) I was chasing down some OSM Inspector-tagged errors and came across the stand-alone address nodes you created (Addison at Cherry Creek Apartment Homes). I didn't quite understand why they were tagged as errors, so I contacted the website's team. Sorry to modify your work, but I j...
22018-03-12 19:18:29 UTCYour Village Maps Did you also notice when they were created and that only a few of the apartment buildings in that complex had them? That's because it's a work in progress. Please check with me before deleting or editing things I am in the middle of working on.
32018-03-13 02:01:06 UTCchachafish Hello, again. I'll be happy to check with you before making any corrections. No problem. Are you still working on Hampden Village? It looks like the last edit there was 25 days ago. Cheers :)
42018-03-13 03:34:17 UTCYour Village Maps I had finished Hampden Village; however, I think I will re-do a bit: delete addr:unit key and add addr:housename to replace it. From what I've seen that's preferred. Right? And it certainly looks better when rendered.
52018-03-13 15:35:40 UTCchachafish I wish I could say I was an expert and I knew what is preferred, but I'm just learning with some aspects of addresses. However, yes, a stand-alone address that isn't a building or isn't physically attached to a building always pops up as an error. If you're ever curious to see, just go to https://to...
62018-03-14 18:06:24 UTCYour Village Maps Could you please tell me exactly what is wrong with this node, which I recently added? Note that it is connected to another similar node (addresses of end-unit townhomes). I also had started adding a few of the buildings in this development.

Node: 5474276570


I g...
72018-03-15 01:57:03 UTCchachafish Hi again :), No problem. If you go here:
This link lays out the problem. The node is flagged as an error because the "key" has no "feature" associated with it. A feature could...
82018-03-15 02:02:06 UTCchachafish Again, sorry to bother you with all this, but I see you are an avid mapper. I could just go around fixing errors, but I assume you'd like to be able to recognize errors before they're made. The knowledge certainly helps my own mapping skills a great deal ;)
92018-03-15 03:40:11 UTCYour Village Maps Well, if you ask me the Address IS the feature. A row of townhomes is considered one building but has a range of addresses from one end of the building to the other. Based on what I read about addr:interpolation, this should not be a problem. And the rendering is what I would expect and prefer. Do ...
102018-03-15 14:34:23 UTCchachafish I see what you're saying, but I can also see the Wiki's point of view. Your solution for the address interpolation is spot-on. The address part is excellent. Now the nodes need to be attached to a structure. That would mean either, a) creating a building and attaching the nodes to it or, b) tagging ...
12018-02-19 01:53:17 UTCchachafish Hey, nice work on these addresses. Tagging the addresses with an interpolation seems to have done the trick. The lines don't pop up as an error any longer. Cheers :)
12018-02-14 17:35:40 UTCneuhausr Since it's been a few years since you added it to the name, wanted to check if County Road 13 is still a US 14 detour?
22018-02-14 21:09:00 UTCYour Village Maps No, it isn't a detour and hasn't been for a good while. I must have overlooked those short segments around the interchange when I reverted the detour back to normal. I will take care of this right now. Thanks
12018-02-08 02:03:18 UTCchachafish Thanks for fixing the previous changeset. While I have you, just so you know, there are a lot of errors popping up on OSM Inspector around the corner of South Yosemite Street and East Mansfield Avenue. There are a lot of buildings here that have a total of about 100 untagged lines on them. Cheers :)
22018-02-08 03:20:52 UTCYour Village Maps Yes, that's my recent work. Did you take a closer look? If I did not do this correctly, please instruct me on the proper method. At each end of each untagged line is a node with address information (lowest and highest street address (addr:housenumber) for each building of town homes). I had seen...
32018-02-08 04:45:49 UTCchachafish Well, I'm certainly no expert when it comes to this. I was just looking over flagged errors that brought up some untagged lines. The way I handle multiple addresses for one building is like this example: 2138 Eliot Street, Denver. But, there are certainly many different ways to handle this; I think....
12018-02-06 02:10:26 UTCchachafish Greetings, I was reviewing some OSM Inspector-tagged errors and I came across a line you created encircling a large residential area. Is this something you meant to finish, but didn't get back to? It's the area centered roughly at South Lewiston Street and East Iliff Avenue. Thanks, just curios
22018-02-06 20:17:56 UTCYour Village Maps Did you delete this line? Because I didn't see it. It was most likely going to be landuse = residential, including name of development.
32018-02-07 01:00:17 UTCchachafish It's still there. Look at East Iliff Avenue, east of South Chambers Road. Just west of South Buckley Road. Or, look to the right of Yale Elementary School :)
42018-02-07 05:07:37 UTCYour Village Maps I see it now. I didn't check it in an editor before so it wasn't visible.

It was originally created on 18th October 2011 by mapper 42429 and edited by me in 2015. I had intended to split it into two areas, each side of Iliff Avenue, but didn't finish. I have now finished it.

Good catch. I ...
12018-01-13 13:46:23 UTCchachafish Greetings, I was reviewing some OSM Inspector-tagged errors and came across this area. It seems a building was created between these medical buildings. I think you meant to create an area of grass? I thought I'd give you the opportunity to correct this yourself, since I'm not sure what the intent wa...
22018-01-13 21:45:02 UTCYour Village Maps It would help if I knew what way(s) you are talking about. So much in this little area.
32018-01-13 21:52:07 UTCYour Village Maps Wait - I think I see what you're talking about - way 293145527 - edited 3 days ago by SaturatedPhat, changeset 55338668 "Added park land". Obviously this is wrong. It should not be a building; it also should not be leisure=park. Also 3 days ago SaturatedPhat added a large polygon leisure=p...
42018-01-14 01:37:59 UTCchachafish Hello, yes, that's it. I mistakenly thought SaturatedPhat had created the building. I agree the area is neither a building nor a park. However, grass would seem appropriate. :)
52018-01-14 02:23:45 UTCYour Village Maps I have edited the area and left a comment on SaturatedPhat's changeset. Also found more new construction to add.
62018-01-14 02:46:04 UTCchachafish Thanks
12018-01-02 22:09:55 UTCcompdude Has this road reopened yet?
22018-01-02 23:18:01 UTCYour Village Maps Yes it has re-opened, apparently around 10/31/2017. I thought I was subscribed to this area's MnDOT construction emails. I guess maybe not. I will fix it now.
12017-09-13 07:13:49 UTCrickmastfan67 Heads up, but I-87 will only go as far as the US-64 Business / NC-97 interchange (New Bern Aveune).
22017-09-13 07:14:20 UTCrickmastfan67 The FHWA hasn't approved it any farther than that yet.
32017-09-15 02:39:43 UTCYour Village Maps I had just heard about the change from I-495 to I-87 and wanted to make sure OSM showed the change. Mapper sprjus4 beat me to it by one day. However, there were a few segments that they missed, so I updated those to I-87 also and added oldref = I 495 to all segments, which they did not do. I did rea...
42017-09-15 02:49:54 UTCYour Village Maps Follow-up to my comment just posted a few minutes ago above:

I have also now discovered that another mapper, Silvertronica, has edited this motorway 4 days ago, extending the stretch labeled with ref = I 87 from Buffalo Creek (where sprjus4 had it end) to Little River, a few miles further NE of t...
12017-06-10 20:36:58 UTCFTA Hey!
I noticed you were adding some construction detour information. We recently ran into this problem in Madison, WI, with a bridge that was dismantled and rebuilt. A tidy solution we had was to tag the roads as highway=construction to indicate that fact (and also show up nicely on rendering). Jus...
12017-05-23 17:37:53 UTCneuhausr I see that you've added local_ref to some of the bus stops, but it seems like you're using it incorrectly. According to the wiki ( local_ref should be used to tag one platform within a station. You are using it for the bus route numbers, which are al...
22017-05-24 00:19:07 UTCYour Village Maps Looks like you're right. And so I have learned yet another detail about something I assumed was correct for so long. Openstreetmap really needs to develop one or more online courses for new (and old!) mappers to help get more people "on the same page" regarding things like this. Also, the ...
32017-05-25 15:15:28 UTCneuhausr I am constantly learning new details too! :) There is an effort to move to a different tagging scheme for transit, so that doesn't make it any easier. The new scheme distinguishes between the bus stop location where one waits (public_transport=platform) and the place where the bus stops on the road ...
12017-04-18 16:13:28 UTCneuhausr I noticed your very detailed work on the golf course--nice! However, it's tagging for the renderer to use highway=path for the golf=hole way.
12017-02-02 13:53:04 UTCmaxerickson Hi-

The tag "access=yes" on this footway:

Doesn't really mean anything. The default access= state for any highway is yes.

horse=no and motor_vehicle=no are also quite redundant on a way tagged highway=cycleway/footway/path (as the wide...
12016-06-18 11:07:09 UTCmueschel Hi,
the tag "lanes:turn" is not used anywhere else. I guess you want to tag a center turn lane? This can be done using common tagging:
lanes:both_ways = 1
turn:lanes:both_ways = left

Cheers, Jan
22016-06-18 20:48:21 UTCYour Village Maps Thanks for the info. I shouldn't have assumed a tag w/o checking the wiki. I did check it and I'm a bit confused about what is the correct method for a 2-lane street with a center left-turn "chicken" lane. You gave me two possibilities; is there a difference? I've also seen tags that look ...
32016-06-18 21:20:40 UTCmueschel It's the combination of both tags - the first says "there is a lane used for both directions" and the second one clarifies "this lane is used to turn left".
The xzy:lanes = a | b | c is used to describe if lanes used in the same direction have different properties. This doesn't ...
42016-06-18 21:27:45 UTCYour Village Maps OK. Thanks for clarifying. I've seen some places (not many) where a busy street (say 2 lanes in each direction with a median) has multiple turn lanes at an intersection with another busy street and lanes=2 changes to lanes=5 with 2 left turn lanes and 1 right turn lane; I haven't chosen to incorpora...
52016-06-18 21:47:16 UTCmueschel That would be
turn:lanes = left|left|through|through|right
Just list the different turns for each lane separated by |
62016-06-18 21:52:41 UTCYour Village Maps Thanks! You've been a great help. Do you live in Lincoln? I live in Denver, but I was born in Lincoln.
72016-06-18 22:08:31 UTCmueschel No, I live a bit to the east... 7500km to the east to be precise. If you have further questions, feel free to send me a message.
82016-06-19 23:23:18 UTCYour Village Maps One thing I'm still not quite clear on: take a typical 3-lane 2-way street like we've been discussing, tag it like you said....but in the areas where it crosses another street (usually tertiary or higher and usually with traffic signals), that center lane becomes a left-turn lane in the direction a...
92016-06-20 20:35:51 UTCmueschel You got a private message - I think that is too much to discuss in changeset comments.
12015-10-28 16:00:14 UTCGerdP please review: some roads were tagged
I've corrected that to residential, see
12015-08-04 13:04:40 UTCSomeoneElse Re , what is a "building=hut; designation=shed"? "designation" is supposed to be for legal classifications (see ).
22015-08-04 20:15:15 UTCYour Village Maps True, SomeoneElse. These are from my earliest days as an OSM mapper. I haven't done edits like this in a long time now. Today I just leave them as "generic" buildings.
12015-05-12 15:35:17 UTC715371 Hi, I disagree to tag roundabouts as highway=trunk. It is like a crossing: You gonna have to stop, if there is a car on the road - which is the usual case. I am undecided about the road in between the two roundabouts, because its still built without any crossings. We may see.
12015-04-17 06:33:21 UTCrickmastfan67 I'm curious, but why did you in this changeset (and others) change how the ref tag for PA 5 Alternate was tagged? In 99.9% of PA, we do it as 'PA # Alternate', not 'ALT PA #'.
22015-04-17 21:02:01 UTCYour Village Maps Because it wasn't rendered using the standard OSM rendering; it only showed up with the MapQuest Open renderer.
32015-04-17 21:06:58 UTCYour Village Maps By the way, I just tried to switch to view using MQO and it was blank (light grey). Cycle, Transport, and Humanitarian show up, but not MQO. Weird. I did check a number of times after I made the edits to make sure the PA highway shields for the Alternate PA 5 stayed the same, and they did.
42015-04-17 21:55:36 UTCrickmastfan67 Still, wouldn't changing the tagging for the OSM rendering (Mapnik) be considered 'tagging for the renderer'? There are other apps like routers that rely on the data in the 'ref' tag. Some of them might not understand the abbreviation and when speaking it, confuse the driver. That's why in almost...
52015-04-17 21:58:24 UTCrickmastfan67 Even for 'business' highways in PA, we don't abbreviate the text as 'bus' (just so Mapnik renders it), but spell it out fully.
62015-04-17 22:01:08 UTCrickmastfan67 Maybe submit a ticket over @ for them to bump up the number of rendered characters by 3 or 4. I know 'ref=US 19 Truck" renders just fine, and that's 3 less characters then "ref=PA 5 Alternate".
