12017-11-20 15:10:02 UTCBCNorwich Hello and welcome to OpenStreetMap.
The building was already mapped and tagged as Northwood Hall so I've placed your new postcode there as well. Then removed the POI as it just duplicates data.

12017-11-19 20:17:13 UTCBCNorwich Hello and welcome to OpenStreetMap.
I don't think Sorby Close site really counts as a campsite unless the are has changed from residential housing. If the area has changed I apologise, if not could the POI please be removed.
As for the other POI (Skegness Sands) that area is already mapped/tagged ...

Your StreetComplete app has not actually put the speed limits into OSM. It has added the tag "maxspeed:type=GB:nsl_single" which is the type of speed limit but not the actual speed restriction. The tag "maxspeed=30mph" needs to be added to sho...

I just wanted to let you know that a lot of the houses you added to OSM are duplication's.
Do you think you could have a look and correct the problem please? Or would you prefer if I or some other mapper fixed this for you?

22017-11-16 07:38:28 UTCBCNorwich Hi, no response so I've fixed the problems and removed the duplicated farmland. Regards

The default value for oneway is taken as =no except in special circumstances. Please see :-
22017-11-15 17:45:30 UTCBCNorwich There's a lot to take on board when starting out mapping to OSM and you can't learn it all at once. (Like don't hit the comment button to quickly). Please keep on with contributions to our great map.

32017-11-15 17:55:08 UTCCaroline Nash Hi Bernard,
Fern Grove is a conventional two-way street and the one-way option was labelled as "No assumed" and I changed it to "No" i.e. I confirmed that the it was not one-way and the assumption was correct.
Rgds Caroline
42017-11-15 19:33:52 UTCBCNorwich Hi, that's correct with a conventional two-way street, it was/is assumed that oneway=no so no action was needed. There was no need for the way to be actually tagged oneway=no. Or looking at it a slightly different way, in the absence of a oneway= tag it is assumed automatically by the database that ...

If you place the POI within the outline of the building that houses it folk will know exactly where to go, this is the usual practice for OSM.

22017-11-10 08:59:01 UTCBCNorwich Hi, I didn't hear from you so I've reverted the change.
12017-11-03 16:54:57 UTCBCNorwich Hi and Welcome to OpenStreetMap.
At the position you've moved the Coop POI to the existing building is already tagged as the Coop. Your moved POI is therefore duplicate information thus ought to be removed. Shall I remove it for you?

22017-11-10 08:55:33 UTCBCNorwich Hi, I did not hear from you so I've removed the node.

If you temporarily revert the changeset you can easily see what changes have been made. The removed node was at the north east of the landuse=farmland area where it borders the wood, here :-
12017-11-08 07:28:01 UTCBCNorwich Hi, you need to add maxspeed=??
Your tag does not state the speed limit just the type of limit.
Regards Bernard
22017-11-08 07:29:19 UTCBCNorwich I meant to mention that StreetComplete may not be clear on speed limit adding.
32017-11-08 09:00:22 UTCei8fdb Hi BN,

Hmm, I don't remember adding the speed limit as "??".
From memory the steps I made were:
Click on speed limit icon
Used "other answer" option
Chose "no speed limit" or no speed limit sign

Answered no to a questio...
42017-11-08 11:42:18 UTCBCNorwich Hi, I thought from your changeset comment of "Add speed limits" that you were trying to add a speed limit.
It seems then that StreetComplete adds a default tag of "maxspeed:type=GB:nsl_single" when "no speed limit" is chosen.
Anyway there's no harm done.
52017-11-08 12:45:33 UTCei8fdb Hi,

Yes I was trying to add a speed limit, using the StreetComplete icon of a speed limit sign with an acceleration dial.

I chose "other answer" with there is no sign. Looking at it now again, I see an option to click a tick box with ?? as limit.

I'm sure I didn't choose that opt...
62017-11-08 12:46:02 UTCei8fdb If it helps I can do the same thing again to try and replicate?
72017-11-08 17:29:10 UTCBCNorwich Hi, I've just now removed your "maxspeed:type=GB:nsl_single" from two sections of Globe Road. So yes please try again to add the proper speed limit. If it fails I can add the limit for you, is the limit 20mph here?

12017-11-04 07:49:20 UTCBCNorwich Hello and welcome to OpenStreetMap.
I looked at the Bing imagery for the location Silver Court and it looks like there is a building where you've drawn the way. Does the way go through the building or is the way misplaced?

12017-11-02 16:42:28 UTCBCNorwich Hi, just wanted to let you know you've drawn way 179278573, v1 around the Parish Hall but not tagged it.
12017-11-02 16:32:48 UTCBCNorwich Hello, regarding way (private) (521164524, v1). This was tagged with name=(private) IMHO incorrect so I've made it a note.
If actually the track is private please tag it access=private, the name tag isn't for descriptions of the way.
12017-10-25 06:08:39 UTCBCNorwich Hello and Welcome to OpenStreetMap.

I'm pretty sure this property is not named "Farmhouse", it's also a poorly drawn outline, I wonder if you meant to outline the whole property or just the house.
If I can help in any way please just ask.

I just made the maze a circle shape, hope you'll agree it looks neater.

12017-10-05 11:21:47 UTCBCNorwich Hello, the name tag is meant for the proper name of a feature rather than a description of that feature. The name for the area (Greenbank Gardens) is stated/tagged on the overall feature and thus need not be stated several times. I've changed the several names on features to description=*** instead....
22017-10-05 23:01:42 UTCClarkstonCorrect Ok thanks :) I'm pretty new to osm.
12017-10-05 11:11:56 UTCBCNorwich Hello, regarding Way: 530037149 and Way: 530037879 tagged landuse=grass, it looks like a large proportion of these areas are not in fact areas solely of grass. They encompass houses, drives and many domestic gardens. Further the two outlines are self-intersecting ways.

12017-10-01 12:19:10 UTCBCNorwich Hello, your recently added path Capital Ring (527240440, v1) is a duplication of an existing path and the section that you duplicated are part of the existing Capital Ring (Section 1) route relation. So the way Capital Ring is mapped.
I have deleted the duplication.
Regards Bernard
12017-09-29 18:28:04 UTCBCNorwich Hello There, you've mapped this company in the wrong place quite a distance from Renfield Street.
You also removed the building tag from Gallery Apartments, I've reinstated that tag.
Lastly you've got the number and street in a house-name tag.
If you need help with this please just ask.

12017-09-28 05:43:04 UTCBCNorwich Hi, I've changed the open hours to OSM best practice. (I made the change because opening hours get a bit complicated and need to be presented exactly)

You actually didn't remove a oneway tag from the bridge, because there wasn't one to remove.
You did however add the tag oneway=no. A oneway=no tag is not necessary as usually in the absence of oneway=yes OSM takes there to be no oneway restriction, (except in s...

12017-09-12 06:20:46 UTCBCNorwich Hello I just wanted to let you know that your recently added cycleway (Way: 523284869) is placed on top of a footway (Way: 4356852) that has been in the database for many years. Thus a duplication occurs.

12017-09-19 12:12:42 UTCBCNorwich Hi, the "highway=motorway_junction" tag on Node: 1652765719 is confusing as it is on a junction between a primary and a tertiary highway. If there's no motorway then there's likely no need for a junction tag.

Similarly the few nodes tagged as junctions to the SW are IMHO not needed.
22017-09-19 15:33:24 UTCİsmət_S I fixed all of these.

Best regards.

12017-09-19 11:40:01 UTCBCNorwich Hello and Welcome to OpenStreetMap.
I notice that there is a duplication of ways (one way directly on top of a second way). This is at the west ends of Way: 525847472 and Way: 525847471 where they join onto Way: Qaravəlli əsas yol (151563580).
I can help fix this if you wish.
Regards Bernard
22017-09-19 11:42:32 UTCBCNorwich Also Way: 525847473 does not join onto Way: 525620908. Again I can help if you wish.

52017-09-19 12:29:04 UTCBCNorwich Well done, very sorry but Way: 525847471 is now not joined.
12017-09-19 11:50:43 UTCBCNorwich Hi, at junction Node: 1651249775 three highways join the junction but the aerial image seems to indicate that the three ways join prior to the junction with only one way going roughly north from the primary road.
22017-09-19 11:57:03 UTCİsmət_S Hi. Can you fix it please?
32017-09-19 12:00:19 UTCBCNorwich Also your 20 speed limit sign Node: Max speed (5113273875) is not joined to the highway. It is therefore ignored as, on it's own it is not designating a highway for the restricting limit to be applied to.

22017-09-15 09:19:31 UTCaswiseman Thanks for this. The footpath no longer exists (part of the old golf course or the nature reserver that replaced it), so I have deleted it.
12017-09-15 06:22:53 UTCBCNorwich Hello,
If Knighys Way is private then the tag access=private should be added to the way not included in the name tag. Then add permitted access (to allow for access onto the footpath that Knights Way crosses). Also the road/footpath junction ought to be joined up.
Regards Bernard
22017-09-15 09:24:07 UTCaswiseman Hi Bernard. Thanks for letting me know the convention. I have removed "(Private Road)" from the name (even though it appears on the street sign this way ) and have tagged it with "access" = "private", as you suggested. Andrew
12017-09-15 06:15:20 UTCBCNorwich Hi your new way crosses an existing cycleway, if they phisically join on the ground then this ought to be represented in OSM.

I don't suppose you are aware that OSM is a live worldwide database that is able to instantaneously change the characteristics of hundreds of folks maps. I hope you can realise that the live database is not the place to conduct tests. (Tests can be done off line ...

12017-08-01 05:43:04 UTCBCNorwich Hi and Welcome to OpenStreetMap.

You somehow added two POI for YouTube, I've removed the duplicate and added the address and website.
12017-07-27 14:29:29 UTCBCNorwich Hello and Welcome to OpenStreetMap. I see you may be having problems.
Was there anything in particular you wanted to add to OSM? Can I help in any way?

12017-07-26 12:44:49 UTCBCNorwich Hi, you inadvertently moved a bus stop, no problem though I've reverted the change. I mapped the area of your new Pocket Park and included the website. Hope that's OK, good luck. Bernard
22017-07-26 13:12:33 UTCMoragBirdBoxAvenue Thank you, thank you, thank you! I was a bit baffled about my E10 postcode search first suggesting a location near Hampstead Heath. And as you say - I had no intention of moving a bus stop. Thanks for including the pocket park.

12017-07-13 20:37:55 UTCDaveF Hi Rowland
To map entities with voids in the middle we use mulipolygon relations:
22017-07-22 12:24:12 UTCBCNorwich I've pointed out this problem (through changeset comments) to mapper Rowland many times and corrected dozens of these instances. Despite this there has been no response from Rowland and data continues to be added incorrectly.
Rowland also maps land/building areas on top of existing land/building a...
32017-07-22 15:43:16 UTCDaveF Rowland was/is under an acknowledgement ban so unable to message via changeset, but I did receive a DM (although it didn't really address my concerns). It's surprising someone with 7K edits is unaware of MPs & his 'blitzkrieg' mapping technique of not tidying up after himself is *very* annoying.
42017-07-22 20:32:55 UTCRowland Dozens is a little bit of an exaggeration, as it was once this year, and once in 2015
52017-07-23 05:37:46 UTCBCNorwich Yes once this year and once in 2015 are the commented changesets.

Dozens is likely an understatement. Your attention was probably only drawn to the ones I commented on (even though the comments seemed to provoke no response). The dozens of self intersecting outlines on areas (buildings, water, wo...
12017-07-22 16:12:45 UTCBCNorwich Hello and Welcome to OpenStreetMap.
I looked at your alterations to Manor Road and see that you inadvertently added two more highways atop the existing ways. The best way to achieve amendments like this is to edit the existing way, this also allows the history of change to be kept intact.
12017-07-21 06:24:05 UTCBCNorwich Hello There, just wanted to point out that buildings with courtyards do not have to have self intersecting outlines. Regards

32017-07-15 13:57:21 UTCBCNorwich Hello, no offense intended, some folk don't take kindly to being offered advice.

Right, I take it that the steps are intended to join the old railway. So that you have a route from the road along the path, then the steps and onto and along the railway. SatNav routing can then follow this route.\...
12017-07-15 07:37:36 UTCBCNorwich Hello there, I'd just like to point out that for the way south from Ham you have mapped two ways (a highway=bridleway and a highway=unclassified). You've also tagged the access as (in parts) private, yes, permissive.
Your new way does not join with Ham Road, and the highway=road close to Ham Road,...

12017-07-08 07:54:33 UTCBCNorwich Hi, Revert changeset to regain the original history (history was lost when houses redrawn, best to adjust whats already mapped thus keeping the history intact), remove the duplicate building, redraw the buildings, properly tag addresses to conform, change ele to conform.

22017-07-04 07:18:45 UTCBCNorwich Descriptive names removed.
12017-07-03 19:11:40 UTCBCNorwich Duplicate way removed, the original way should be amended not another way placed on top of it.

"Width Restriction" is a description not a name.

Nodes are removed as I cannot correct them.

The road, edited by myself, is an unclassified road, lawfully usable b...
52017-06-16 11:51:40 UTCSK53 This does indeed appear to be classified as an unclassified road by the county council. There will always be edge cases where the rules-of-thumb fall down, and this is one of them. I don't believe that it should be mapped as such on OSM: highway=track is much more appropriate. A couple of important ...
62017-06-16 11:58:07 UTCRichard highway=unclassified, surface=unpaved is ok but slightly unidiomatic for UK mapping.

What has happened is that the path has been dragged to a new position without it being disconnected from the two roads. This inadvertently pulls the two roads out of shape by the same amount. The path has then been amen...
42017-05-19 06:15:56 UTCBCNorwich Forgot to say I can see what you are trying to do and could make those changes if you wish, though I'm sure you'd like to do it yourself.
52017-05-19 07:01:12 UTCLaurie_cs Thanks for the explanations and correction, As you rightly point out I would like make the changes, correctly, myself. This is the first one I have tried. Again thanks for your help, this is a very useful tool. I have UK Maps on my phone and they take a lot of info from the OS maps but do not hav...
12017-05-18 14:54:41 UTCBCNorwich Hi and welcome to OpenStreetMap.
You drew the park area again rather than updating/adjusting the existing mapped area. I have removed the duplication and tagged the area as park, leaving existing tags and history in situ.
Regards Bernard
12017-05-16 13:27:22 UTCBCNorwich Hello and Welcome to OpenStreetMap.
Your POI guest house is placed in the roadway. As such and without an address, name or other contact info it is of little or no use to anyone. Could you please rectify this if not the POI will be removed in due course.
Regards Bernard
22017-05-17 17:11:58 UTCtrigpoint It translates as Oli's House, suggesting that this is yet another personal marker.
I am reverting this rubbish
12017-05-16 13:11:44 UTCBCNorwich Hello your POI appears in the middle of a street far away from the stated address. If this is a mistake then please be advised that the POI has been removed so you can try again.In which case help is offered if you need it, just ask.
If however this is just crude advertising (which it looks like) t...
12017-05-16 06:09:50 UTCBCNorwich Hello you inadvertently added a highway=footway tag to the outline of part of a residential area (making it the longest footway I've seen). I have now removed the footway tag.
Regards Bernard
22017-05-16 07:55:17 UTClyut Thanks for spotting that, silly mistake on my part.
12017-05-15 07:56:03 UTCBCNorwich If your changeset statement is correct then you've placed this POI in the wrong position. That hotel is south of here. Regards Bernard
12017-05-14 19:12:08 UTCBCNorwich Hello and welcome to OpenStreetMap.
I can find no reference to a government office of this name and the area is residential. Could you please give more information, address and point to the actual building. Thanks.
12017-05-14 05:41:07 UTCBCNorwich Hello and welcome to OpenStreetMap.
Your leisure centre building outline is lacking in detail compared with the background image. It is also a duplication, thus I have removed the duplicate taking care to transfer your address tags onto the original building.
Regards Bernard.
12017-05-13 14:22:06 UTCBCNorwich Reverted your change. Byron's Pool is a local nature reserve, please see the tagged webpage. There are numerous County Council references to the nature reserve, none state as being a park.
12017-05-12 06:47:46 UTCBCNorwich Hi, in the absence of a oneway tag it is implied that there is not a oneway restriction. Thus the oneway=no tag in (except in exceptional cases, please see :- is not actually needed.
22017-05-12 20:43:26 UTCPeppyPupper Thanks again, should I add another changeset to revert the oneway changes?
32017-05-13 05:54:02 UTCBCNorwich Hi, as you can see from the link the oneway tag is to be avoided unless it is needed to avoid other errors. It would actually do no harm if left. But best practice though would be to remove the oneway=no tags thus avoiding unnecessary bloat on the database.
If you need any help please just ask. Re...
12017-05-12 14:03:56 UTCBCNorwich Hi and Welcome to OpenStreetMap.
Regarding the POI for a park you added, a POI is not really good for an area so I took the liberty of adding the area outline as best I could from Bing image. Secondly it's a private garden rather than a park, tags adjusted to suit garden. Regards
12017-04-22 05:51:15 UTCBCNorwich Hello and welcome to OpenStreetMap.
Firstly your new node/POI for the Nisa Local is placed on the street, (not very precise). Also there is a Budgens shop mapped as the nearest building.

22017-05-12 07:15:12 UTCBCNorwich No response so removed
12017-05-12 06:59:49 UTCBCNorwich The larger area is encompassing your
park area is already mapped as a recreation ground. Thus the park area (which actually looks like two football pitches) is incorrect. better to map the pitches.
12017-05-12 06:41:50 UTCBCNorwich Hi you duplicated these bus stops. I've removed the duplicate checking that your shelter tag remains.
22017-05-12 20:40:13 UTCPeppyPupper Thanks! I was using the StreetComplete app and was a bit suspicious when I had to fill in the same information twice (for each stop). Probably just some rough edges.
12017-05-12 06:06:56 UTCBCNorwich Hi, the full common area is already mapped so I've removed the duplicate.
12017-05-11 17:14:11 UTCBCNorwich Hi, the area was already mapped so I've removed the duplicate area.
12017-05-11 06:37:12 UTCBCNorwich Please see board by entrance and websites for description of area, it is not a park, it is described as a playing field therefore recreation ground.
12017-05-10 06:07:04 UTCBCNorwich Hello, I've removed your duplicated POI from street center (correctly placed POI inside building line to SSE).
12017-05-08 18:07:52 UTCBCNorwich Removed fiction bench and rest areas fro middle of street and taxiway.
12017-05-08 18:07:36 UTCBCNorwich Removed fiction bench and rest areas fro middle of street and taxiway.
12017-05-08 17:26:40 UTCRobert Whittaker I think something's gone wrong with your edit here to -- should it just have been changed to landuse=farmland?
22017-05-08 17:45:54 UTCBCNorwich Hi, sorry yes, slip up clicking the mouse. I thought I had found all of them. Extra tags now removed. Regards Bernard
12017-05-08 12:21:54 UTCBCNorwich Hi, a way can be a track and a bridleway at the same time.
22017-05-08 12:24:12 UTCpaul_plumz I am sure it can, but it is classified as a bridleway on OS Maps and is not passable in a car from the Kettering Road to the top of Badsaddle woods
32017-05-08 12:36:42 UTCBCNorwich Hi that's OK, then it can be tagged motorcar=no which means no public access by car, leaving general access as access=agricultural.
42017-05-08 12:59:24 UTCpaul_plumz OK - Sorry new at this, so if a bridleway is on a farm track then you classify it as a track with a designation as public_bridleway and set motorcar=no?

Just trying to get all my local tacks onto OpenStreetMap
52017-05-08 15:29:54 UTCBCNorwich Hi no cause to be sorry and please don't be put off by this. I'm still learning after several years.
Yes to your question and because it's a farm track access=agricultural is very specific as to the allowed access. You can tag ways of any sort with specific access and or restrictions. By no means a...
12017-05-08 11:01:38 UTCBCNorwich Hello and welcome to OpenStreetMap.
On it's own a name does not give any information to the public. So I've taken the liberty of adding to your POI.

12017-05-08 06:41:52 UTCBCNorwich Postcode presentation corrected
12017-05-08 06:37:40 UTCBCNorwich There is a hotel at that address (to the south) but not in the middle of the river, unless you've booked a water bed and it's slipped its moorings. Anyway this node remove as obviously a mistake.
12017-05-08 06:28:01 UTCBCNorwich Confusing with two different names. Can you confirm the change to Co Op Local? I've put a note on OSM asking for local confirmation of change.
12017-05-07 21:46:10 UTCBunkys Hi, Just trying to work out where the new wing of this hospital has gone and whether there was some problem with mapping (relatively new user)? Not sure how to track down changesets but yours seems to be the last edit?
22017-05-08 05:56:23 UTCBCNorwich Hello, I made several minor alteration/tweaks to the building outline and somehow inadvertently removed that section. It is now reinstated, copied from a temporary reversion. If I remember correctly I think I was concerned about if that wing joined onto the main building (the east west section), I h...

22017-05-07 07:56:04 UTCLessExciting Thanks Bernard. In regards to the first change I haven't seen this on the ground but the connection between the bridleway and the track is visible on satellite so I'd thought I could extend it.

12017-05-06 14:37:14 UTCtrigpoint Hi Bernard
Not sure if you looked through the history of this object but it was changed to a park, from a village green, by Doily17. I suspect this is pokemon related and should probably to put back?

22017-05-06 16:53:16 UTCBCNorwich Hello Phil, I actually only adjusted the outline to better reflect what I saw on the Bing image regarding the street car parking.

12017-05-06 07:52:47 UTCBCNorwich The area can have landuse and leisure tags at the same time.

I see the alteration you made to a section of the Jubilee Line is changing the layer from -3 to -5. I wonder how you came to this decision as the adjacent sections of the line remain at layer=-3, thus indicating a step of two layers? Regards Bernard

12017-05-03 22:25:48 UTCtomhukins The County Arms closed several years ago and was converted to flats. I haven't visited this area in a few months but I'd be very surprised if it has reopened. Can you confirm this is the case?
22017-05-04 05:47:25 UTCBCNorwich Hello there, The pub is tagged disused=pub, (your tag of 2010). Then doily17 added back the tag amenity=pub on 13-4-17. I initially only re-positioned the node 14-4-17.

I've now amended the tag amenity=pub to disused:amenity=pub. There should now be no confusion, disused stated twice.

Regards ...
32017-05-04 19:26:33 UTCtomhukins That makes sense, but I still don't understand why you would move a node when you seem unfamiliar with what's there.
42017-05-04 19:28:19 UTCtomhukins Also I never recall Greene King operating the pub, and the Wikipedia tag seems irrelevant. I'll fix this.
12017-05-03 16:10:47 UTCBCNorwich Hi and Welcome to OpenStreetMap.
I've tidied up the buildings and removed the fiction parks.
12017-05-03 06:04:25 UTCBCNorwich Removed duplication of the street.

What is the area, unless stated it is meaningless?
12017-05-03 06:01:41 UTCBCNorwich Hello you made several duplicate ways of some of these footpaths, (either doubling back when drawing a way or actually drawing the new way on top of a section of already drawn way). I think I've removed all duplicates. Duplication thus fouls up routeing. Regards Bernard
12017-05-02 16:12:04 UTCBCNorwich Hello and welcome to OpenStreetMap.

52017-04-15 19:02:36 UTCBCNorwich Second thoughts. The building name could go on the apartments outline as name=Lemonade Building which will be rendered. Thus the POI can be removed.

42017-04-14 13:37:01 UTCBCNorwich Hi, it's an area for informal recreation on foot, there do not have to be pitches.
52017-04-14 13:54:05 UTCchillly No, in English it is a piece of public land used for sports and games. The tagged space is a piece of rough ground that could not support sports and games. That may be a park, I suspect it is just grassland, it's certainly doesn't look well kept for a park.

You've placed this POI on the roadside by a little park, likely inadvertently incorrect. Features uploaded to OSM must be verifiable on the ground. It would be good if you could look at this positioning again. Or could you give more details of the florist, name,...
22017-04-04 06:06:48 UTCBCNorwich No response so POI is removed.
32017-04-04 09:35:32 UTCmapping man Hi BCNorwich. Just to let you know that there is a small public garden in that POI location. It is paved with an ornamental shrubbery in the centre and benches in a circular pattern on the outside. I think Jonathon must have used the wrong POI.
12017-04-03 16:58:25 UTCBCNorwich Hello and Welcome to OpenStreetMap.
With respect I have reverted your change-set as this area is predominantly trees thus woodland. Although the grass and wooded areas of the campus are used as recreation or parkland there is no formal park here, (with the exception of Earlham Park).
12017-04-03 07:16:48 UTCBCNorwich Hi, I've redrawn your grass areas that were over roads and self intersecting.
12017-03-29 16:57:31 UTCBCNorwich Hello and Welcome to OpenStreetMap.
Unfortunately you introduced a duplicate way with this addition by placing it atop the existing highway. I have removed the duplicate way
12017-03-28 13:46:25 UTCBCNorwich Hello and Welcome to OpenStreetMap.
Unfortunately you placed the new pedestrian highway on top of and along several trunk roads. Making in effect a duplicated way. Thus I have reverted (removed ) the new pedestrian way.

If it was your intention to mark up a map for running/walking then OSM is n...
12017-03-27 17:44:02 UTCBCNorwich Hello and Welcome to OpenStreetMap.

This is a Public Right of Way please don't delete any of it. It may be inaccessible to vehicles, that does not matter.
22017-03-27 17:51:04 UTCEpping Forest Taxi Nobody is asking for it to be deleted, just for it to be marked as a pedestrian path; not normally accessible for vehicles.
32017-03-27 18:49:40 UTCBCNorwich OK, you had actually deleted the northern section, I now realise this must have been an inadvertent action which I've rectfied. The history of the change is still intact if you wish to view it.

A board walk needs to be tagged with bridge=boardwalk for it to be correctly represented. Please see :-

I've reversed the change to the hotel as the relation area was already in the database, (with the inner cutout (courtyard) of the building).
12017-03-26 05:44:10 UTCBCNorwich Hello and Welcome to OpenStreetMap.

You have inadvertently placed your new space 'park' in the middle of a road which is obviously incorrect. I cannot see any place around here that could accommodate a new park so I've removed the POI.

If I can help in any way to locate the park please just as...
12017-03-23 07:03:59 UTCBCNorwich Hi, there are now several area named "Kidbrooke Village". I doubt if this large area is one apartment build, rather it could be several buildings. From the quoted website "Kidbrooke Village" is a name given to the whole area.

12017-03-22 13:40:49 UTCBCNorwich Hello and Welcome to OpenStreetMap.
I've amended the opening hours tagging to suit that required by OSM, removed your description tag as that's really blatant advertising and is on your tagged website anyway.
That leaves the following two problems that you need to address :-

12017-03-22 07:22:28 UTCBCNorwich Hello and welcome to OpenStreetMap.
So is that now a single building all with the address that was/is on the original part of the building? If so then the two building areas should be merged into one single area with the address. I could do this if you wish. Regards
12017-03-21 14:43:17 UTCBCNorwich Hi, if the road is closed that would not make its name Road Closed, so I've removed the name tag.
12017-03-21 07:33:33 UTCBCNorwich Hello and welcome to OpenStreetMap.
The info in the fire station POI you added is already contained on the amenity=fire_station area outline. I've removed the extraneous POI which no extra data.

12017-03-14 06:58:03 UTCBCNorwich Hello and welcome to OpenStreetMap.
I have reverted your changeset because all the tourism=attraction features you added are already mapped, (the tags are on the actual features). By the way you had made several spelling and capitalisation mistakes.

12017-03-10 07:35:32 UTCBCNorwich Hello could you give an indication as to the memorial dedication please? Is it for the Elizabeth Garrett Anderson Hospital? If so the site of the hospital building is on the corner of Church Way and Euston Road and maybe the POI is not exactly placed.
12017-03-10 07:20:01 UTCBCNorwich Info on these nodes already exists on the park area outlines. So nodes removed as its unnecessary duplication.

12017-03-09 18:49:02 UTCBCNorwich Hello, The Horse & Groom POI was close by, I've properly positioned it.
The area you mapped you tagged as a lake and it was a circle shape, obviously incorrect so I've removed it. If you need help please just ask.
12017-03-09 18:39:45 UTCBCNorwich Hi, I've positioned the church POI to over the church building according to the Bing image. Regards
12017-03-09 18:26:18 UTCBCNorwich The park was already mapped, I've added your new surface tag (grass) to the existing feature. Regards
12017-03-09 18:20:25 UTCBCNorwich Hello and Welcome to OpenStreetMap.

If you can explain what you are trying to do maybe I could help?
12017-03-09 18:03:12 UTCBCNorwich Hello, your restaurant was wrongly placed. I've put a POI with your data at roughly 62 Marine Parade and reinstated the crossing that was altered at your original position. Regards
12017-02-20 14:21:49 UTCBCNorwich The park you have added is over a residential area. If the park is fictitious then it should be removed, (only on the ground verifiable features ought be added to OSM). If it is fiction would you therefore please remove it? Or shall I remove it?
22017-03-07 08:21:56 UTCBCNorwich No response so park mapped on top of housing is removed.
12017-03-07 08:07:25 UTCBCNorwich Hello and welcome to OpenStreetMap.

12017-02-18 16:55:51 UTCchillly Welcome to OSM

I'm not really sure what you were trying to do here. You have created an area, given it a name that looks like a road name and added something that looks like a postcode that can't apply to the whole area.

12017-02-18 08:00:19 UTCBCNorwich This feature House of Abderahman is in the garden behind Foulden Road. There is not to my knowledge a hotel on Foulden Road. I suspect this is probably where you or your friend resides. You could map the house where you live, that would be OK. But this fiction should be removed.

12017-02-18 07:53:31 UTCBCNorwich This feature House of Yousef is not placed on Jade Close. There is not to my knowledge a hotel on either Jade Close nor Marble Drive.

12017-03-01 18:13:10 UTCBCNorwich Hello, Just wanted to let you know that a section of Sandy Park Road (amended/altered in this your recent changeset) is now duplicated. There are different route relations on each part of the duplication so it needs knowledge of these to make a repair.
12017-03-01 10:27:51 UTCBCNorwich Hello and welcome to OpenStreetMap, your fictions have been removed. Please be aware that your uploads are spoiling the best map in the world. That means you are spoiling it for yourself as well.
You've shown you are a good mapper so genuine additions to OSM will be appreciated.
12017-02-27 11:42:15 UTCDerick Rethans Hi!

And welcome to OpenStreetMap. I think you might have double drawn the road now. Would you like me to correct this? What was your intention with this change? did the road change?

22017-02-27 14:53:23 UTCBCNorwich Hello, Welcome to OpenStreetMap.

You've actually added 4 new untagged ways each duplicating the route of Grierson Road. So I have reverted this changeset to avoid any problems of someone trying to undo mistakes.
12017-02-26 08:46:46 UTCBCNorwich Hell, I removed way 453122534 as it duplicates part of way 476898369, it also had self intersection of the outline.
12017-02-26 06:50:34 UTCBCNorwich Hello There, and Welcome to OpenStreetMap.
I removed your tag lanes=-2 from Hampden Way as it is meaning less, (-2 lanes is less than 1 lane, less than 1 lane is no road at all).

12017-02-21 22:15:00 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to osm. Something has gone a little wrong here, the building you have created is rather large and covers several streets. Would you like some help fixing it?
22017-02-22 07:39:15 UTCBCNorwich Hello yes welcome.
Your next changeset made incorrect alterations so I've reverted both changeset as both have problems.
I researched your company and have added a POI at the building mapped as 46 Loman Street. Please check this out and adjust as necessary.
12017-02-22 07:14:36 UTCBCNorwich Hello There and Welcome to OpenStreetMap.
I have reverted your addition of an un-described area as it makes major alterations to mapped rail lines dragging them out of place.
There are many help pages to get you started mapping. If you need help adding features to OSM please just ask.
12017-02-21 13:53:18 UTCBCNorwich Does this site exist? I can find no reference to it!
12017-02-20 14:09:35 UTCBCNorwich Hello There,
You've mapped the park over two buildings. Have the buildings been demolished? If so the buildings should be removed or tagged as demolished.
12017-02-20 06:56:22 UTCBCNorwich Hello and Welcome to OpenStreetMap.
I have removed your POI as it is already mapped. I have added your tourism=attraction tag to the existing POI as it was missing and may have led to your addition.
Regards Bernard
12017-02-18 09:22:59 UTCBCNorwich Hello and Welcome to OpenStreetMap.
I wonder if the guest house is really called "HOME" and if it is actually situated on the corner of a street. Could you please better place the POI and possibly correct the name?
12017-02-16 07:26:16 UTCBCNorwich Hello There,
I reverted the name change from your destination/origin information because Lea Valley Lines is the name not Enfield - Liverpool Street Line.
The destination and origin information is already contained in the route relation.

12017-02-14 07:23:04 UTCBCNorwich Hello There,
As the areas are mapped the name Perivale Wood Local Nature Reserve appears three times on three areas. Do you think that, as the two meadows are mapped as within the Perivale Wood Local Nature Reserve, they might just have their individual meadow names. Thus avoiding repetition.

12017-02-13 07:19:11 UTCBCNorwich Hello and Welcome to OpenStreetMap.
The two footways are not joined to each other. Could you verify or not that there is a continuous way through on the footpath from Gas Hill to St Leonard's Road? If so then the two paths should be joined.
Regards Bernard
22017-02-13 22:47:21 UTCAndy South Thankyou Bernard, Yes there is a continuous way through. I just looked on the map and it seemed to me that the lines for St Leonards and St Michaels terraces are joined. But I'm new to this so please do correct if not. Thanks. Andy
32017-02-14 06:49:16 UTCBCNorwich Hello Andy, The problem was fixed yesterday by mapper dmgroom_ct so you were unable to see the un-joined ways.

No problem now and thanks for your additions. If I can help in any way please just ask.
Regards Bernard
12017-02-09 08:19:31 UTCBCNorwich Hello, I just wanted to let you know that you are, probably inadvertently, making a lot of self intersection on the various types of areas you map.
22017-02-09 08:24:17 UTCBCNorwich Also a field or fields tagged show the land usage is better described as landuse=farmland.

To tag an area landuse=farm is really describing the area as a place (a farm in OSM is usually a place).
32017-02-12 16:52:14 UTCSK53 @BCNorwich: this latter statement is incorrect. landuse=farm predates use of landuse=farmland but got used for farmyards. It was therefore decided that a clearer distinction was needed, hence farmland and farmyard. place=farm is something different and should largely be avoided in most parts of Brit...
42017-02-12 18:43:45 UTCDyserth Hi BCNorwich - I'm not sure what you mean by self intersection but I presume its where a way goes back on itself. I have no idea how you can find out which ways have this error either so am unable to check and correct them. As you can find them have you any hints?

12017-02-09 14:20:13 UTCBCNorwich Hello and Welcome to OpenStreetMap. IMHO one ought not to assume speed limits, it's really just guessing. Would it be possible to go there and properly survey the roads.
22017-02-09 14:27:56 UTCBCNorwich Oh and the foot-way, are cycles allowed there? Also the foot-way is not joined to the roads at each end so software will not be able to route along it.
32017-02-09 19:15:50 UTCmarkf0wle I live on this road. The speed limit isn't sign posted on the estate, my assumption was my interpretation of the highway code. I will double check & correct if nessecary.

I will amend the footpath. Yes, bicycles are permitted on all the footpaths in the area to my knowledge.
42017-02-11 15:53:48 UTCtrigpoint You have tagged Welling Road as lanes=1, is that true? It doesn't look like a single track road on bing imagery.
Also 20mph areas cannot exist without signs.
52017-02-11 22:57:23 UTCmarkf0wle OK, good shout. I have corrected the lanes on Welling Rd, is 2 lanes - 1 in each direction.

I have too found this reviewing the highway code, therefore the official speed limit would be 30mph as that is the last posted speed as you enter Welling Road from Brentwood Road.
62017-02-12 07:14:37 UTCBCNorwich Would you then correct the speed limits on the estate please?
It would be wrong for OSM, (the best map in the world), to knowingly contain wrong data.
72017-02-12 13:01:45 UTCmarkf0wle Done Sir.

22017-02-05 18:42:16 UTCBCNorwich I beg your pardon my mistake. There was a duplicate node on the entrance. When I inspected it I saw the two outlines and deleted one of them. After your prompt and closer inspection I found the duplicate node.

Your obvious fiction has been removed.

"Name=resident area" on a node does not mean anything to the database. If you want to indicate that the building is residential within that predominately retail area then you could change the tag building=yes to building=residential.
Need any help please ...
12017-01-29 07:23:21 UTCBCNorwich Hi the park you added was obviously a mistake as it was placed on top of a residential area, so I've removed it. Regards
12017-01-28 15:16:15 UTCchillly Welcome to OSM

You have changed something named as Compton Terrace Gardens from being tagged as a garden to a park. Is this really true, or are you changing things to attract Pokémon? We want your edits but please add real stuff in the right place and described properly.
22017-01-28 15:24:28 UTCRomulus_Tiberius I don't play pokemon. But English is also not my first language, and after just googling the difference between park and garden I tend to think that is more of a park then a garden. There's nowhere near enough plants or flowering plants to make it a garden, but at the same time maybe it's not big en...
32017-01-28 15:27:18 UTCchillly OK, I accept your choice. We are seeing lots of new mappers simply adding parks to play a game, that's why I asked.

I hope you find more detail to add in your area.
42017-01-28 17:54:37 UTCBCNorwich Hello Compton Terrace Gardens are actually gardens, they happen to be used like a park. That's why they are called and signed as gardens. Originally they were for the private use of people living in the terrace's, please see :-

12017-01-27 08:07:19 UTCBCNorwich Hello and Welcome to OpenStreetMap.
This footway is already mapped in that the existing cycleway is designated as segregated foot and cycle use. So I have removed the duplication.
Regards Bernard
22017-01-27 17:45:57 UTCmjs317 Thank you Bernard. Put that down to over exuberance of a new user!
32017-01-28 07:02:20 UTCBCNorwich No problem, need any help just ask!
12017-01-27 18:10:02 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM. I assume this footpath is meant to connect to Wellbeck Drive? For it to be usable it does need to connect. Shout up if you need a hand.
22017-01-27 19:20:13 UTCBCNorwich I don't think there is a footpath goes through the houses just there.
12017-01-27 18:46:52 UTCBCNorwich All change-sets to and including this one are reverted to remove fiction.
12017-01-27 18:26:47 UTCBCNorwich Not the proper place to do testing (testing can be done without uploading fiction to the live database). Can I help you with mapping anything.
Your addition has been removed.
12017-01-27 18:22:44 UTCBCNorwich Your silly fiction has been removed. If you need help adding genuine features to OSM please just ask.
12017-01-27 12:57:20 UTCBCNorwich Removed residential area as it was mapped inside of a residential area, duplication.
12017-01-27 12:52:25 UTCBCNorwich Removed paths drawn over established housing.
12017-01-27 08:39:30 UTCBCNorwich I have reverted these silly changes.
You show you have a good idea how to map map properly, this is the best map in the world please don't spoil it. And we would welcome some real additions to help us and your good self
12017-01-27 08:32:16 UTCBCNorwich It's an informal path through the woods not a of the status you tagged it. The house is not a park. The gardens are not a park. Tagging reversed/removed.
12017-01-27 08:20:02 UTCBCNorwich This is actually a service road maintained by the council. Giving vehicle access to properties along it as well as access on foot.
12017-01-26 14:29:34 UTCchillly Welcome to OSM.

You seem to have deleted stuff and and added junk to the map. If you are trying to attract Pokémon, you are wasting your time. They only use certified parks, paths and waterways.Imaginary ones are a waste of time.

I will delete this as junk.
22017-01-26 14:39:00 UTCjm350z I accidentally deleted the funeral home. As far as junk is concerned, i tried to add waveney water garden, this was a japanese garden with many koi ponds created by my late father in law. There are still original ponds and fish at the properties. Your reference to junk is very harsh and quite frankl...
32017-01-26 14:41:38 UTCchillly Hmmm, what about the five houses on a private road you plonked the pond onto?

I stand by junk.
42017-01-26 14:44:08 UTCjm350z "ponds" at the properties. Go fuck yourself

62017-01-26 14:53:29 UTCchillly Thank you for reinforcing my initial idea. I have checked, the area covered all of the houses and gardens and even touched the main road. Maybe there were ponds there in years past, but the aerial images show only houses and gardens with lawns now.

If you want to map real stuff that is present n...

12017-01-24 21:49:49 UTCchillly Welcome to OSM

Is that really a park or are you just trying to attract Pokémon? The park (garden) overlaps the building. please add stuff carefully and only add real stuff.
22017-01-25 14:37:15 UTCBCNorwich Removed fictional park placed atop existing buildings and private parking area.
12017-01-25 14:35:51 UTCBCNorwich Removed fictional park placed atop existing buildings.
12017-01-25 14:33:37 UTCBCNorwich Adding made up places is not very helpful to a live worldwide database. Your changes are reverted.
Even so Welcome to OpenStreetMap and if I can help you make a positive contribution please just ask.
Regards Bernard
12017-01-25 10:05:34 UTCBCNorwich With respect I think you will find that under the tree cover is a large area of water. If you haven't actually been there then please look at other maps and aerial imagery.

12017-01-24 19:54:24 UTCBCNorwich Hi, Welcome to OpenStreetMap.
This area is actually part of Clapham Common and has been mapped as such for many years.
12017-01-24 12:41:04 UTCBCNorwich Hello and Welcome to OpenStreetMap.
The information contained on your two added POI (museum) is already included in full description's of each of the buildings. I have removed your two POI as it is a duplication of data.
12017-01-23 08:44:33 UTCBCNorwich Hi and Welcome to OpenStreetMap.
You've placed that unnamed bank on a residential street. I don't think there's a bank close by so I'll remove the POI.
If you can give more details and a better position please please make the addition and if I can help please just ask.
12017-01-23 07:34:00 UTCBCNorwich Hello and Welcome to OpenStreetMap.

22017-01-23 19:29:20 UTCWorldsBoss Thank you for the kind welcome Bernard. I did notice that the measurement was in meters, but there was method in my madness haha.

22017-01-22 09:00:25 UTCBCNorwich Way: 467433785 can you really walk that line and does it join the road at north?
32017-01-22 20:58:02 UTCtelmocosta Yes you can walk 467433785 and it joins the road at north. although i haven't crossed that path yet. Thanks for your help, I have laid down plenty of path for my walk, I am not experienced in drawing footpaths.
12017-01-06 15:35:57 UTCBCNorwich Hello and welcome to OpenStreetMap.
There are problems with this footpath. You've not connected it to the road at south, it's drawn across a house into back gardens. Would you please look at and correct it? Need any help just ask. I can remove it for you if it's not repairable?
22017-01-22 08:11:51 UTCBCNorwich No response, no evidence so removed way.
12017-01-06 15:27:31 UTCBCNorwich Hello and Welcome to OpenStreetMap.

32017-01-20 00:33:29 UTCSomeoneElse Based on the last time I was in the area (last year) I don't think there's anything like this amount of "meadow" here. You could maybe make a claim for the bit by the cricket pitch, but it'd be a stretch.
42017-02-09 23:50:00 UTCSomeoneElse This was so wrong based on my recollection of the area that I've reverted it (but also tried to incorporate future changes that seemed plausible, e.g. that the main street in Milton is lit).
12017-01-03 08:08:26 UTCBCNorwich There are still many problems with your mapping. Now I see gates mapped as linear features. A gate is an impediment/barrier to a way, not a way it's self. The tag barrier=gate should be placed on a single node of either a barrier or highway, or an intersection of a barrier and a highway, please see ...
22017-01-17 12:16:02 UTCBCNorwich Problems now rectified
12017-01-01 18:14:28 UTCchillly Hi,
If the area around a property is a garden, you can (should) tag it as a garden, not a meadow. The key is leisure:garden.

Only add names that are shown on signs, so a garden will not have a name:Garden tag. It takes a while to get the hang of things, but you're getting there.
22017-01-01 18:20:59 UTCchillly There is landuse:orchard available if you're sure the site is an orchard, again that stops you misusing the name tag.
32017-01-17 08:58:32 UTCBCNorwich All problems now rectified.
12017-01-01 10:54:01 UTCBCNorwich Hello and Welcome to OpenStreetMap.

I have never previously seen that map, and I agree that the land rises quite steeply from the Uppingham Road. This triangulation pillar does not seem to be shown. Had it been erected? The OS claim that their "leveling" dates from 1963. Perhaps the contour lines on the 1937-61...
12017-01-16 08:02:50 UTCBCNorwich I'm sorry but I don't think that the playing field nor the football pitch is named "Briston pavillion". The clubhouse building east of the field might be.
22017-01-16 08:08:41 UTCBCNorwich Please don't let the comments on your first OSM mapping deter you, everyone makes mistakes (especially me). There is a lot to learn and there's lots of help on the web. If you think I can help please just ask.
12017-01-15 21:36:23 UTCchillly Welcome to OSM,

Thanks for the detail. We normally add a name tag when there is a sign naming something. Public Footpath is a useful sign but we add a special tag designation=public_footpath.
22017-01-16 07:53:04 UTCBCNorwich Yes Welcome, what you've actually added is a duplication of an existing way. It's been on the OSM database for several years and is on the Vespucci map. As such it adds nothing extra to the database (except for several of your new descriptions, which I might argue about), thus it ought to be removed...
12017-01-15 12:20:54 UTCBCNorwich This bus-stop is mapped actually some distance from the street and there is another bus-stop close by on that street. The name=studio given to the bus_stop looks suspicious as well, especially as the close by building is Studio College.
So it looks like your mapping is somewhat flawed.

12017-01-14 21:13:18 UTCchillly Hi Welcome to OSM,

12017-01-11 18:56:07 UTCBCNorwich Is there a physical, verifiable feature on the ground here with a verifiable name? If not then the point ought not be mapped as it serves no function. Please see :-
22017-01-14 19:33:36 UTChadw The other issue here is that names should not be used to carry meta-data.

22017-01-13 20:14:06 UTCBCNorwich Hello Phil,

No I didn't miss it, I left it for you, please see my comment here :-, just joking. It will always be football to me! What do you think, conform or not?

Regards Bernard
12017-01-13 18:12:23 UTCBCNorwich Hello this area is the pitch. The stadium is the already mapped building to the east. I've changed the tag back to pitch.
I would agree with the sport=football tag, and would use it myself, after all it is a football club. There is however a trend to call this game soccer. Regards
12017-01-13 18:01:18 UTCBCNorwich Hello and Welcome to OpenStreetMap.
Could you say why you placed the POI (sculpture) in the residential relation number 2919365, as I can see no need to do this. If this was inadvertent shall I remove it from the relation (it only bloats the database). Regards.
12017-01-12 18:15:38 UTCBCNorwich Hello there, your mapping of the three fields is very imprecise as to be almost valueless. Could you please make good these areas, you can zoom right in so as to very accurately map field boundary's.
12017-01-12 07:13:39 UTCBCNorwich Hello and welcome to OpenStreetMap.

32017-01-09 13:18:24 UTChadw I thought there was a general principle that we did not map information about private individuals. If nothing else, it creates Data Protection Act responsibilities - full redaction may be needed if there is a a complaint.

I removed the address from the building, as it has several addresses for many areas of the building. Placed address and extra details on the POI.
12017-01-04 18:08:55 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM. This should probably be amenity=social club, bar implies it is open to the public, whereas a social club has membership rules.
Cheers Phil
22017-01-04 19:56:08 UTCBCNorwich Yes welcome to OSM. Actually the facility is already mapped and all information is on the building outline. It is tagged as amenity=social_club, so I have removed your POI so as not to duplicate the information, hope that's OK.
32017-01-04 19:59:23 UTCtrigpoint Well spotted, the building and club outline are separate and overlapping ways. That could do with a tidy up while you are removing the node.

Untagged way 463240250 that just goes out into a field, was that inadvertent, can it be removed?
22017-01-03 16:58:21 UTCSam Liam Perkins If you mean Pen Hill Lane, that was meant to be there.
If you mean something else that I missed, feel free.
32017-01-03 17:00:28 UTCSam Liam Perkins Oh, I see what you meant now. Stupid spindly bit I left poking off of Mill Lane. Yes, that was an accident, you can remove that.
42017-01-03 17:08:04 UTCBCNorwich OK, removed.
12017-01-03 07:34:30 UTCBCNorwich Hi and welcome to OpenStreetMap.
These two additions look like fiction, a nightclub in a grassed park, a highway rest area in the middle of a street. You either had a very good night or a very bad one.
I have removed the features, however if you can show me wrong I'll gladly apologise and put the ...
12017-01-01 18:38:48 UTCBCNorwich Many inaccuracy's were left, I've repaired as many as I can easily see.
12017-01-01 11:16:32 UTCBCNorwich Hello and Welcome to OpenStreetMap.
Unfortunately this changeset has made two highways over the same route, a footway and a cycleway. To the South East one reaches the road the other doesn't. The route across this field (as shown on the OS map) is a designated right of way being a public footpath. ...
12017-01-01 10:54:32 UTCBCNorwich Hello there, are you sure this building is named correctly? OS map has the name as Laurel Farm.
12016-12-31 17:19:22 UTCBCNorwich Hello several highways that you've tagged as sidewalk to one side or the other actually have sidewalks on both sides for some sections, in one case there is a section with no sidewalk at all, left or right.
22016-12-31 19:28:52 UTCitstricky Hi BCNorwich,
Thanks for the feedback. In cases where a pavement ceases and/or (re)commences, would it instead be desirable to split the sidewalk off to a separate footpath running alongside, or split the actual roadway into sections to allow for more accurate sidewalk mapping? I couldn't find guid...
32016-12-31 20:28:51 UTCBCNorwich Hello There, It's usual to split the highway into sections to accommodate changes in the highways characteristics, be that a change in sidewalk, speed limit, name change or designation etc. As for sidewalks (pavements to the side of roads usually separated from the carriageway by a kerb) it's usual ...
12016-12-31 17:29:42 UTCBCNorwich I just looked at the mapping here and observe that one path is not joined to the highway network at either end. The other looks like it should be joined to the service road.
12016-12-30 19:39:35 UTCBCNorwich Hi, changed the dyke name to South Oby Dyke.
22016-12-30 19:42:10 UTCnorfolkbroadsnetwork Ah, great, cheers!
32016-12-30 20:05:59 UTCBCNorwich No problem. Welcome to OpenStreetMap.
I've looked at your mapping, made a couple of minor adjustments which I commented on for you to see.
Regards Bernard
42016-12-30 20:09:28 UTCnorfolkbroadsnetwork Great, thanks. We're intending to add a lot more data specific to Boaters.
12016-12-30 19:50:52 UTCBCNorwich Adjusted tag amenity numbering.
22016-12-30 19:57:59 UTCBCNorwich Although the underscore is not incorrect it shows as not right in some tagging checkers. The colon does not present an anomaly and putting the numbers from (no number) 0 upwards keeps features numerically in line.
I think that makes sense!
12016-12-30 15:19:50 UTCchillly Welcome to OSM.

Are you trying to make new Pokémon sites by any chance?

We like to see new editors, if you have any questions, feel free to ask
22016-12-30 17:27:21 UTCBCNorwich Hi, could you please verify that the four park areas are recreation areas that are open to the public?
If they are then it would be good to map the access to them.
If they are not then leisure=park is not a correct description to use. Perhaps landuse=grass/meadow or
natural=grassland would be be...
12016-12-28 07:36:17 UTCBCNorwich Hello and welcome to OpenStreetMap.
Just wanted to let you know that it's not necessary to always tag a two-way road as 'oneway=no'. A two way road without a 'oneway key/tag' is, (in the absence of a 'oneway=yes' tag) automatically taken as being 'oneway=no'
So although not being incorrect ''onewa...
12016-12-27 18:53:21 UTCBCNorwich Hi, I just changed the tag from park to recreation ground to better reflect the areas use.
12016-12-27 18:12:37 UTCchillly Welcome to OSM

When I see your first edit deleting stuff with comment of deleting excessive detail, this is worrying. OSM wants MORE detail not less. Why have you deleted stuff like this?
22016-12-27 18:19:21 UTCchillly Looking at this more closely I have reverted this edit. There is no way all this should be deleted.
32016-12-27 18:47:04 UTCBCNorwich Just wanted to add support to the decision to revert this changeset. It's very easy to make mistakes when you first jump into OSM mapping, I'm sure freefromsociety can make positive contributions. Just takes little research as to best practices first.
42016-12-28 09:27:31 UTCSomeoneElse Whilst it might make sense to restore some of this detail, I'm a bit sceptical about others - I doubt that is any sort of "pedestrian area", for example.
52016-12-28 14:04:24 UTCtrigpoint Also, whilst not part of this changeset. The A16 is incorrectly mapped as a dual carriageway. This could use a tidy up.
12016-12-26 14:06:31 UTCBCNorwich Hello There and Welcome to OpenStreetMap.
I've looked at what you've added to the database and see quite a few problems. The Howardian Hills: Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is not just the area you mapped (please see the map here :-
There is no lar...
12016-12-25 16:37:22 UTCBCNorwich Hi, you need to tag the buildings (building=house) otherwise they won't show on the map. I've done the ones at Marzion.
12016-07-25 17:49:49 UTCBCNorwich Hi, a few of your ways are not tagged!
22016-07-25 17:52:11 UTCBCNorwich Forgot to say please see :-
32016-12-25 11:18:38 UTCBCNorwich No reply so removed some untagged ways.
12016-12-25 10:47:38 UTCBCNorwich Hello and Welcome to OpenSreetMap.
You might not be aware that OSM is a live worldwide database. Thus everything we add must be correct and precise. I have reverted your changeset/additions because they added ways are duplicates and somewhat fictitious. I hope you can understand the desire to keep ...
12016-12-18 17:16:52 UTCBCNorwich Hello and Welcome to OpenStreetMap, a live worldwide database from which folk make lots of maps.
I just looked at your addition to OSM and there are some problems. You've somehow added an area on Ledborough Road, 600 feet long 0ft wide. The candle company does not exist in the middle of Wilton Roa...
22016-12-25 08:41:15 UTCBCNorwich No response from the mapper so the changeset has been reverted.
12016-12-23 11:20:41 UTClostmike Welcome to OSM
Why have you extended this footpath on to existing streets? There's really no need to add separate ways for this.
22016-12-25 08:35:53 UTCBCNorwich Yes Welcome to OpenStreetMap, I have reverted your changeset because the duplicated ways would only serve to disrupt existing data. If you need any help adding something please just ask or read up how to do it properly. There's a help section here :-
12016-12-25 08:16:43 UTCBCNorwich Hi, I removed a path and an untagged way which looked totally out of place, I suppose you're still learning. Please remember this is a live worldwide database. Please don't upload stuff till you're sure it's correct. Regards & Thanks
12016-12-25 08:10:08 UTCBCNorwich Hi, I have reverted this changeset because it inadvertently dragged parish boundary, paths, roads ect out of original alignment.
12016-12-25 08:01:19 UTCBCNorwich Hello, I've tidied up the paths you marked and placed descriptive tags on them. They will now appear on the map.
I drew the paths from the Bing image, hope they are OK. How do the paths connect to the recreation ground and/or paths to the south please? Also do you know details of the nature trail a...
12016-12-25 07:55:41 UTCBCNorwich Hi, I've drawn the recreation ground which is all foot access.
12016-12-25 06:51:48 UTCBCNorwich Hello and Welcome to OpenStreetMap.
I can find no evidence of this park and stream or moat. With three houses being demolished there should have been a planning request at least. I have therefore removed your additions.
Perhaps the park is in a different place? Your mapping was actually pretty go...
22016-12-26 06:53:13 UTCGlassman I suspect this was an attempt to influence pokemon go. Good to see it removed.
12016-12-23 21:39:59 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM. Please remember that OSM is a live database, and we only map what exists in the real world.
Aerial imagery suggests that this path does not exist, can you convince me otherwise?
22016-12-24 08:15:25 UTCBCNorwich Yes Welcome to OpenStreetMap. The park doesn't look right either. I can find no reference to a park or public space here. It is likely to be part of Woolmer's park, a large farm.
32016-12-24 11:07:35 UTCtrigpoint Reverted
12016-12-24 07:41:42 UTCBCNorwich Hello, This path duplicates a way already mapped as a shared cycleway. It adds nothing so should really be removed.
12016-12-24 07:05:29 UTCBCNorwich Hello and Welcome to OpenStreetMap.
Thanks for adding the park. Just a few pointers I have removed a duplicate park outline. Amended the park outline, name and path.
There are many more features to this new park it would be good if you could survey and map them.
Regards Bernard
12016-12-23 16:44:20 UTCBCNorwich Outline of park area is mapped, no need for a POI
12016-12-23 13:53:30 UTCBCNorwich removed duplicated way, added foot=yes tag to specifically imply foot use.
12016-12-23 13:50:06 UTCBCNorwich Hi you now have here the existing service road (Greenwich Industrial Estate) and your footpath (the movement) on top of each other. One must be wrong?
Also each word in a proper name should be capitalised.
22016-12-23 14:02:11 UTCCarlos Quiñones Seirul-lo There is no industrial Estate anymore for a few years. Now there's a housing complex called The Movement and this path is a very good shortcut to the greenwich train station
12016-12-23 09:43:57 UTCBCNorwich Northern section of path was a duplication of an existing cycleway.
12016-12-23 08:41:12 UTCBCNorwich Hello and Welcome to OpenStreetMap.
The name at least, and perhaps the website and address would be very helpful additions to the database.
12016-12-23 06:59:10 UTCBCNorwich Hello and Welcome to OpenStreetMap.
I just looked at your addition to the OSM database. This way is already in OSM so the new way is a duplication, thus I have removed it. You did add some new data which I have included on the existing way. I also see the way extends to the service road at north so...
12016-12-22 18:33:00 UTCBCNorwich Added your post:postcode=E3 5GY onto the highway as postalcode=E3 5GY which is the correct way to add this information to a highway. Regards
12016-12-22 18:22:48 UTCBCNorwich Hi just removed housename =1 as that is not the house name.
12016-12-08 18:56:20 UTCBCNorwich Hello and Welcome to OpenStreetMap.
I can find no reference to a hostel on Henrietta Street, Spalding. Items added to the OSM database must be verifiable by some means, preferably on the ground. Can you show that this POI exists please?
22016-12-22 08:51:44 UTCBCNorwich No response so POI removed.
12016-12-21 18:58:18 UTCBCNorwich Hello and Welcome to OpenStreetMap.
Sadly your first addition to the OSM database has gone wrong. I have had to revert your changeset that has inadvertently dragged the building outline out of shape. Everything is now back as it was.
12016-12-18 08:38:37 UTCBCNorwich You should have been alerted by my comments by now. So can you please finish with adding fiction to the map? It's rather a silly game but you've shown that you do have good skills for mapping. The OpenStreetMap community would like to make you welcome to contribute in a more constructive way.
All B...
22016-12-18 23:28:44 UTCSomeoneElse @BCNorwich , see .
32016-12-20 08:20:02 UTCBCNorwich @SomeoneElse, Have you removed all the fiction? As I usually follow up what I comment on.
42016-12-20 09:13:51 UTCSomeoneElse @BCNorwich finds couple of nodes created in - that probably needs looking at to see what joins were created there.
12016-12-18 17:29:10 UTCBCNorwich Hello and Welcome to OpenStreetMap.
May I point out that the building you've address tagged as number 19 is actually a pair of semi detached houses. The address would only apply to one house not both. The other buildings are semis as well. If you need help splitting the building please just ask.
12016-12-18 12:02:50 UTCBCNorwich removed as mapped in the wrong place.
12016-11-29 18:16:43 UTCBCNorwich Hello There,
I just wanted to point out a few problems I can see in this changeset.
The highway=track that you've drawn continuously up and down the field are not highways. They are the trails the tractor made while ploughing and planting the crop.
The south field is not landuse=grass it should ...
22016-12-18 11:50:24 UTCBCNorwich Not response so fiction is now deleted.
12016-12-18 08:39:56 UTCBCNorwich Fiction.
12016-12-18 08:32:04 UTCBCNorwich Fiction, and not very imaginative.
12016-12-18 08:28:19 UTCBCNorwich Middle of the sea?
12016-12-18 08:27:00 UTCBCNorwich ?
12016-12-18 08:25:09 UTCBCNorwich Fiction? name is tagged wrong, way goes across fields.
12016-12-18 08:22:42 UTCBCNorwich Again fields.
12016-12-18 08:20:30 UTCBCNorwich In the middle of a field?
12016-12-18 08:17:02 UTCBCNorwich This is reverted, looks like it was a practice or something went wrong. There was a building on-top of a building with one corner dragged up over the railway line 1/2 mile away.
12016-12-18 08:12:36 UTCBCNorwich Hi, the new path is mapped on top of some buildings, as described by the tag layer=1 which means that item is above the building. But it is also tagged tunnel=yes which indicates it is under or through the building.
Clearly the is something not quite right or lacking here?
12016-12-18 07:58:00 UTCBCNorwich Hello and Welcome to OpenStreetMap.
I have reverted this addition as the new road (Residential Road) is a fiction possibly added by mistake or as a test. The live worldwide database is not the place for testing. Regards
12016-12-18 07:11:34 UTCBCNorwich With respect, Way: 447956699 lacks any tagging and looks a bit unusual. Regards
22016-12-18 21:08:03 UTCSK53 Removed. Turns out it was an accidentally duplicated from the grammar school way even though it doesnt look quite the same.
12016-12-17 21:02:02 UTCBCNorwich Hello There, I think you may be mistaken regarding the existence of this path. There is a faint path that can be seen on the Bing image from the end of the track. (Certainly the track section ought not be deleted.) The mapper uploaded a gpx trace for the whole route. Starting from the car park going...
12016-12-17 19:40:11 UTCBCNorwich Tweaked school building and tags.
12016-12-17 19:27:56 UTCBCNorwich Removed building which was mapped on the pedestrian bridge over the railway. Station is already mapped.
12016-12-17 19:20:11 UTCBCNorwich Tweaked the building outlines and addresses.
12016-12-17 19:08:50 UTCBCNorwich Hello and Welcome to OpenStreetMap.
May I please point out that this addition to the OSM database inadvertently duplicate a residential land use area. There are more than fifty house numbers, not just the one you added. There are two or more postcodes.
Post codes and house numbers are best added ...
12016-12-15 13:40:57 UTCBCNorwich Hello, just wanted to let you know that this is a live worldwide database from which lots of ordinary folk build maps. So I have removed your track.
You are most welcome to add genuine features to OSM and there are plenty of resources to learn how to do this properly.
12016-12-15 13:08:52 UTCBCNorwich Hello and Welcome to OpenStreetMap.
It is impossible to work out what you wanted to achieve with this addition to the live OSM database as there are no descriptive tags. What I can deduce is that as far as I am aware this line is not verifiable as existing in reality, (unless you can enlighten me)....
22016-12-15 15:05:26 UTCBrianWharf Feel free, what I was trying to achieve doesn't seem possible here. Also, you may wish to get somebody to read back your text as some of it seems rather condescending.
32016-12-15 16:23:49 UTCtrigpoint What were you trying to achieve? Maybe someone can help. OSN is based around tags, so any untagged object will do nothing in OSM.
12016-12-15 09:30:49 UTCBCNorwich Hello and Welcome to OpenStreetMap.
I have removed the address tags, as there are several post codes and hundreds of numbers on this road also the name was already tagged.
I think there are other roads near/adjoining that have 20mph limits, it would be good if you could survey and map those limits...
12016-12-14 07:26:43 UTCBCNorwich Hi, are you sure Fairways joins to Granville Road here now, there was a fence and verge separating them?
22016-12-14 08:31:06 UTCMintra Not sure what you mean by the fence and verge "separating" them, but then I did not see it before. Certainly it is now an open and working junction.
12016-12-13 06:49:23 UTCBCNorwich Hello and Welcome to OpenStreetMap.
Thanks for the recent additions to the OSM database. I have however removed POIs :- Westminister Abbey, Trafalgar Square, and both National Gallery. The reason being that the information in the POIs is already mapped/contained on the feature (area or building). T...
12016-12-12 07:32:15 UTCBCNorwich Hello and Welcome to OpenStreetMap.
I have reverted your changeset in order to reinstate the altered land/building use tags, thus maintain the business park area. Also to reinstate positions of highways inadvertently moved.
This reversion reinstates the Gomez building which was deleted. Added a f...
12016-12-08 14:55:11 UTCBCNorwich Outlined areas of heath you have mapped have several sections where the line doubles back on itself. It's really very easy to map areas like this correctly. Please read up on better methods as you are repeatedly doing this. See
22016-12-10 12:55:39 UTCBCNorwich Removed several area outline self intersections and re-tagged areas. Much better now.
32016-12-10 13:18:26 UTCSomeoneElse @BCNorwich - thanks.
12016-12-10 12:50:22 UTCBCNorwich Removed some self intersecting area outlines for you.
12016-12-08 15:07:50 UTCBCNorwich Hi, a lot of the area you have mapped as heath is actually forest.
