Welcome to OpenStreetMap, can you confirm if this park exist or not? There is no visual reference of a park in the imagery. Thank you!

12017-04-11 12:43:51 UTCjinalfoflia Hi Gamaral,

Welcome to OpenStreetMap. You have been adding park tags to buildings and adding tree row as area. I have corrected them right now (https://www.openstreetmap.org/changeset/47654442). For getting started with OpenStreetMap, please look into http://learnosm.org/en/ as a reference!

12017-04-11 10:24:58 UTCjinalfoflia Hi chifranjon,

The park that you have added in this area doesn't seem to be a part but more like a playground. You can change this and add the following tag - leisure=playground.

Thank you and happy mapping!

Best,

12017-04-11 09:36:59 UTCjinalfoflia Hi DearMiss,

Thank you for your contribution to OpenStreetMap! The buildings (Apartments) that you have added need to drawn (Traced) according to the imagery. Here is a guide you can refer while mapping such apartments/buildings - https://www.mapbox.com/mapping/mapping-common-features/#buildings\...

Welcome to OpenStreetMap! The street lamps that you have added have wrong tag combination. Here is the right combination that you can use - highway=street_lamp on the node (https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:highway%3Dstreet_lamp) and for cameras you can use this: highway=speed_ca...

12017-03-27 10:02:50 UTCjinalfoflia Hi TaxfreeMotel,

Welcome to OpenStreetMap! At OpenStreetMap we only objects that are present on the ground. In this changeset you have added `historic=monument` and `name=XXX Aniversario Progreso de Obregón`, which is more likely an event and not a monument.
Let me know if you have any qu...
12017-03-24 11:21:13 UTCjinalfoflia Hi Ye Lin Tun,

Thank you for your contribution to OpenStreetMap. I have changed the Burmese tag that you had to the Tat Taung city. A better convention to add such tags in different languages is to use `name:language code` i.e. `name:my` in this case. I have made the changes in this changeset: ht...
12017-03-22 07:08:40 UTCjinalfoflia Hello!

Welcome to OpenStreetMap. Thank you so much for your contributions! I was curious about the name present in this changeset, this seems to be a park but the name of this park is 'Forest reserve'? Is Forest Reserve actually the name of the park?

Thank you!

Best,

Jinal Foflia
22017-03-22 07:35:15 UTCthylacine666 Sure is! It's a very generic-sounding name, I agree, but that's definitely the name. You can actually see this one on Google Maps (a lot of park named are blurred out for some reason, I can't figure out why) - https://www.google.com.au/maps/@-34.0232126,150.7338873,3a,75y,313.76h,85.32t,359.64r/data...

12016-08-08 06:29:00 UTCjinalfoflia Hi pokey,

The multipolygon (lake Winniepesauke) is broken, thus it is not rendering the lake on OpenStreetMap. It looks like you have modified the relations last. Can you please take a look into it and fix it?

Best,

Jinal Foflia
22016-08-08 12:56:51 UTCpokey I am not the one who broke it. I was editing roads in the area, and i noticed that the lake wasn't rendering. I tried to fix it by linking the broken segments back together but there are too many nodes to save the changes. I use Potlatch2 to edit, and it only allows saving ~2000 nodes per polygon. I...
32016-08-08 20:13:57 UTCAlta Dog So, can anyone fix this? It was broken recently and really needs to be fixed. I'm a beginner at OSM, so am reluctant to jump in and try.
42016-08-09 06:13:12 UTCjinalfoflia I tried looking into the data, as to what I understand that Lake Winnipesaukee is a complete polygon, but there is some confusion regarding Meredith Bay and Braun Bay, are these different from Lake Winnipesaukee or they are a part of Lake Winnipesaukee. These bays seem to have a broken polygon and t...
52016-08-09 12:01:52 UTCAlta Dog Thanks for looking into it. Meredith Bay and Braun Bay are part of Lake Winnipesaukee. Am not sure the reason for so many polygons. I've banged my head on this for many hours. Can you fix, or should I refocus efforts on those two broken polygons? I'm still a noob on this.

92016-08-14 15:13:43 UTCpokey Thanks, folks.I had no idea how to fix the lake. My only idea was to cut off all the bays and make them individual bodies of water, then do the same with the center while making sure they abut. I tried doing that a couple of times, but never saved the work, because it never completely worked for me....
12016-08-08 06:14:03 UTCjinalfoflia The changes I have made is not in accordance to my changeset comment. I have moved the tags from the way to the multipolygon and retagged the pond from natural=bay to natural=pond (Please refer to this ticket for more information -> https://josm.openstreetmap.de/ticket/13270#comment:2)

12015-08-18 10:18:03 UTCjinalfoflia Is this campground accessible? Since the gate tag says 'access=no'
22015-08-18 16:22:07 UTCKirbert I had no problem driving around in it. I presume you're supposed to pay a fee to actually camp there, but I'm not sure how you'd represent that on the map. Permissive maybe?

I have changed the access from access=no to access=permissive.
