It would be really good to show folk how they can enter onto this path. Thus folk who don't know the area can benefit more easily from the path.
Regards Bernard
12018-04-24 16:22:54 UTCBCNorwich Hi, those areas are better described as playgrounds rather than parks. It is extremely doubtful that one is formally named"Small play area". I've made amendments accordingly.
Regards Bernard
22018-04-24 17:17:39 UTCAnnieLyra Apologies this is the first time I have used this. I will learn accordingly. Thanks
32018-04-24 17:53:51 UTCBCNorwich No problem, I know there is a great deal to learn. I'm still learning after 8 years and thousands of contributions. If you need any specific help please just ask, there's also forums to ask questions

Nearly all tags have wiki pages...
12018-04-24 16:52:58 UTCBCNorwich Is the path formally and verifiably named "proctor footpath"? If so then the name should be capitalised.
Cafe details now placed on building outline.
Redo tags/spelling for day care center.
22018-04-24 17:15:57 UTCAnnieLyra The footpath is located along proctor road. It's not named at all as far as I can tell however most people who live here call it the Procter footpath. Also it joins onto a small carpal which was not already mapped.
32018-04-24 17:45:58 UTCBCNorwich Hi,
OSM data should, as far as is reasonably possible, be verifiable. The principle applies to tags and other aspects of data representation, and essentially means another mapper should be able to come to the same place and collect the same data ("verify" the data you have entered). This ...
12018-04-24 17:05:00 UTCBCNorwich Retagged cycle track area. Remove several unneeded tags re a school path which is actually tagged correctly as a Rushmore Road, the way goes to the rec, not directly to the school.
22018-04-24 17:14:15 UTCAnnieLyra It's not a cycle track it's a pedestrian area marked on the road.
32018-04-24 17:31:40 UTCBCNorwich Sorry but the cycle track is in the area that you inadvertently described as description=park, leisure=park.
Sorry again I don't know what pedestrian area you refer to.
12018-04-24 17:17:55 UTCBCNorwich rename park and amend tags to play area
12018-04-24 14:00:52 UTCBCNorwich Hell and Welcome to OpenStreetMap.
The park is already mapped, so I've removed the duplicated info.

This is a live worldwide database from which maps are compiled for various purposes including emergency's. So I hope you can appreciate that adding fiction seriously affects OSM.

Unfortunately you've joined the gate to the boundary=administrative not to the track. therefore the gate is not a barrier to the track. You will have to zoom in close to see this.

12018-04-21 12:24:37 UTCBCNorwich Hello mountainmonkey,
You've somehow mapped a lot of these ways in duplicate, paths,tracks,fences and walls. Placing one way (path) directly and exactly on top of another (path).
Thus grossly bloating the database and confusing routers over paths and tracks.

I started removing some duplicate w...
22018-04-22 20:35:08 UTCmountainmonkey Oops. JOSM crashed during upload, I thought I had resolved conflicts correctly but clearly not.
Think I have fixed most of the duplicates now.
12018-04-20 14:02:38 UTCBCNorwich Hi Borbus. Re stream Way: 572794326 this is already mapped. Also sorry to say your duplicate flows uphill. It is a stream rather than a ditch, I'm told fed from a spring.
Would you like me to just amend any small anomalies I come across or let you know.
Regards Bernard
22018-04-20 16:40:12 UTCBorbus Ah, whoops! Sorry about. Yes, please remove the erroneous ditch and any others you find.

It is a fairly painstaking semi-manual effort to merge the OS water and unfortunately they come with no indication of what type of water they are (ie. lake, river, stream, ditch etc.) I've made every effort t...

Both of your new POI's are already mapped, 100 club as a POI node (Node: 100 Club (313349354), Koko's as a building (Way: Koko (225465155). Both are fully tagged/described so the new items are duplication and ought be removed. I can remove them if you wish.

22018-04-20 09:10:56 UTCBCNorwich No response so duplicated info removed.
12018-04-20 06:56:33 UTCBCNorwich Hi the opening hours don't go with OSM best practice. Please see :- http://openingh.openstreetmap.de/evaluation_tool/?setLng=en
Is it possible to remedy this please?

12018-04-18 07:03:02 UTCBCNorwich Hello, you've actually duplicated long parts of the miniature railway and it's also been joined in places to the abandoned railway. If the abandoned and the miniature railway occupy the same line then there should only be one line feature. If you need any help please just ask.

12018-04-18 07:19:12 UTCBCNorwich Hi, it looks like railway lines Way: 580907944 and Way: 580907943 have been dismantled. Thus not active sidings as you've indicated. Ought they to be tagged railway=dismantled?
Regards Bernard
22018-04-18 21:22:03 UTCLouishen Missed that, now marked as dismantled.

Thanks

Does HRTA replace Chic Unique, they are both hair salons at the same address? If so then the original POI ought to have been updated in order to keep OSM history intact. Certainly there should not be two POI for the same salon.
Also a problem is that the manner ...
12018-04-16 12:59:13 UTCBCNorwich Hi, no need to add the tag oneway=no to indicate a two way highway. In the absence of a oneway=yes tag, it is taken by renderers to mean a two way highway.
Regards Bernard
12018-04-15 13:41:07 UTCBCNorwich Hi I've placed the woods details on the woods outline.
Regards Bernard
12018-04-14 18:44:33 UTCBCNorwich Hello and Welcome to OpenStreetMap.
The data contained on your two POI is already contained on the buildings outline. Thus the new information is a duplication and not needed. I don't think you can remove the POI with GoMap so I've removed them for you.
Regards Bernard
12018-04-14 13:36:04 UTCBCNorwich Hello and Welcome to OpenStreetMap.
It seems odd that you give so little information to help others find this place, an address would be helpful.
Is this feature verifiable should others visit? If not it ought be removed.
Regards Bernard
12018-04-03 13:08:36 UTCBCNorwich Hi, a junction node for this POI is not correct.
I suspect there is no geographical feature that is verifiable on the ground for the POI. Unless you can show the POI as verifiable then it ought be removed.
22018-04-13 13:21:48 UTCBCNorwich No response so junction removed.
12018-04-13 06:45:29 UTCBCNorwich Hi, you've added a new service road to this feature (G3 South Multi-Storey Carpark (578643437, v2)), It looks like it's joining ground and roof ways. With no levels indicated on the ways this seems to be incorrect. There must be internal ways between the ground level entrance and the roof level ways...
12018-04-12 06:57:08 UTCBCNorwich Hello and Welcome to OpenStreetMap.
The pub building is already mapped and it is OSM practice to where possible tag an area/building. (A second feature/POI is then duplication.) Thus I've added more info and placed it all on the building outline.

Apologies for any inconvenience caused.

12018-03-15 16:28:27 UTCBCNorwich Hello there and Welcome to OpenStreetMap.
When the building is drawn and it has a sole or main occupier it's best to tag the building outline rather than add a POI.
Regards Bernard.

Is the feature and it's name verifiable to everyone on the ground? If it is actually a warren then there are better tags.

12018-03-15 13:13:44 UTCBCNorwich Hi, your newly added housing estate area, (area way is not described,the node tagged name=housing estate is incorrect, that's not the proper name), is within an already mapped residential area. Thus it's an unnecessary duplication that can be removed.
Regards Bernard.
12018-03-15 07:30:15 UTCBCNorwich Hello and Welcome to OpenStreetMap.
As you've mapped an area there's no need for an additional POI. I've placed the POI data on the area. The database recognizes a feature tagged shop as an area so no need for the area=yes tag.
Hope that's OK Regards Bernard.
12018-03-15 07:15:06 UTCBCNorwich Hello and Welcome to OpenStreetMap.
This area is already within an area mapped as residential so your new tagging is unneeded duplication. Thus I have reverted it to the original tag of recreation, there is some sort of park or recreational area here.
Regards Bernard
12018-03-14 14:04:02 UTCBCNorwich Hello and Welcome to OpenStreetMap.
Your new data was placed on an address tag only, so gave no indication of a shop. Your new data is somewhat duplicating a shop POI mapped 3 years ago by https://www.openstreetmap.org/user/The%20Who%20Shop.

12018-03-09 20:29:41 UTCBCNorwich Hi, in the absence of an intermittent tag the OSM database defaults to presuming the feature is not intermittent. Thus the tag intermittent=no is not necessary. In most cases negative tags are not needed and if added would only serve to bloat the database.

You assumed correctly that the node/way-point was incorrectly positioned. Only with a lot more experience would you be aware that the node had been dragged away from it's original position. Thus resulting in the anomaly you saw on the map.

12018-01-30 08:34:28 UTCBCNorwich Hello and Welcome to OpenStreetMap.
I've amended your POI tagging to OSM best practice. The database will now better interpret the info. I could not find the credit card type (visa, mastercard) you accept so you could amend that.

12018-01-21 07:31:04 UTCBCNorwich Hi, Is this really a playground? It looks like a delivery/loading area for B&Q. You've drawn it over a building and gates and walls. could you please verify the feature or re-position it if a mistake has been made?
Please respond here to confirm or deny.

22018-01-25 13:23:24 UTCBCNorwich No response so I've removed the feature.
12018-01-22 17:54:39 UTCBCNorwich Hi, the leisure=park tag needs to go on an area to be meaningful, https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:leisure%3Dpark

12018-01-22 14:54:32 UTCBCNorwich Hi, I've tagged the barrier as bollards and joined the barrier to the way. Thus the OSM database can recognize the bollards as interrupting passage along the way. Added foot and cycle as allowed traffic through the barrier.
Regards Bernard.
22018-01-22 22:10:27 UTCjæwesome excellent, in my yank mind bollards are usually the barrier bars on a pivot. I glanced thru but that is clearly a better classification. I also swore I checked foot & cycle but no cars. cheers, good catches
12018-01-21 09:26:55 UTCBCNorwich Hi, The footpath crosses some highways (Croft Street, Newtownlands Road) but you've not shown how this is achieved. Does the path bridge the other ways or join to them?
Regards Bernard
12018-01-21 09:22:03 UTCBCNorwich Hello, I was wondering why you've drawn a park over a residential area, a mistake? Also the footways don't look logical not joining properly, one a duplication of a service road. Then another drawn over the houses.

Has the area recently been redeveloped?

12018-01-18 07:50:48 UTCBCNorwich Hi, The name is a park, the area has been designated a County Wildlife Site by the Suffolk Wildlife Trust, thus it is a local nature reserve. Hence the tagging leisure=nature_reserve

12018-01-11 07:27:03 UTCBCNorwich Hello there, that's a great deal better, well done. The buildings will now be rendered properly. However there's possibly a small problem with the mapping.

12018-01-09 18:57:34 UTCBCNorwich Hi, (service_times = First and Third Sunday 8:00am) this isn't recognized in OSM, I've changed it to a note= or you could place the info in description= tag.
Regards Bernard
12018-01-09 18:29:44 UTCBCNorwich Hi, just tagging features as area=yes does not convey enough info to the database for a feature to be rendered.

12018-01-09 18:01:00 UTCBCNorwich Hello and Welcome to OpenStreetMap.
Tagging a building with only area=yes is rather meaningless. If you don't the use of the building then building=yes. For a house tag building=house and so on.
Regards Bernard
12018-01-08 17:56:59 UTCBCNorwich Hello and Welcome to OpenStreetMap.
The correct tag for a park is leisure=park, that would be the reason for the area not rendering properly. Both recreation ground and park are now tagged, please remove any that arn't applicable.

12018-01-05 08:59:19 UTCBCNorwich Hi, it would be good to know what the fire point actually is? Folk would then understand it and it might be rendered. Is it a hydrant, a fire place/BBQ point, extinguisher or maybe even an assembly point in case of a fire?

22018-01-04 15:20:17 UTCmeatlug thank you for the welcome - would you expect this path to now render in the standard map view?
32018-01-04 17:32:40 UTCBCNorwich Hi, yes it will render given a little time. I noticed that the school outline was duplicated and deleted one of those ways. That might slow down the re-render a bit. I can see a partial render so it should be OK.

As it is (un-joined) it is not a barrier to the road.

I just looked at your addition of a ditch to the database. You've drawn it as a linear feature but zig-zaging back across itself. Are you sure? Perhaps you could have a close look and maybe make a correction, thanks.

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.

12017-10-25 06:13:56 UTCBCNorwich Hello and Welcome to OpenStreetMap.

Regarding this addition of a field outline, I doubt if the proper name for the piece of land is "Farmland". The area is also poorly drawn, I can see that you have drawn around the tree shadows to the south.

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.

12017-09-12 13:50:27 UTCBCNorwich Hello, are the fields really named f1, f2, f3, f4, f5, f6. These numbers might refer to area designations but not necessarily be actual names.
Also a similar query for the lake, is it really named "lake"? If it is then should it be capitalised to "Lake"

22017-07-15 08:21:51 UTCGammer_edit The road south from Ham is a permissive bridleway on both a private and public road.
32017-07-15 13:24:07 UTCBCNorwich Hi, yes I can see that but you have drawn two roads/highways, one on top of the other. Between the road junction at Ham and your mapped permissive bridleway which goes eastwards. The manner to map this is to consolidate all relevant tags on just one highway.
To have two highways one on top of the ...
12017-07-14 17:46:01 UTCBCNorwich No need for website tag to be duplicated. Duplicate has been removed, regards.
12017-07-11 16:04:18 UTCBCNorwich Hello there, it's not usual to tag buildings as landuse=residential better to use building=residential on the building and landuse=? on the area.
Anyway the buildings you have retagged look like they are the old school buildings not the new houses. so the whole area needs to be redrawn.
Regards Be...
12017-07-09 16:54:16 UTCBCNorwich Hi, the drinking water is already mapped so I've removed this duplicate. Regards.
12017-07-09 14:52:13 UTCBCNorwich Hello and welcome to OpenStreetMap.
St Pancras International Station is already mapped, the POI just a few yards away from your POI. So I have removed this duplicate.
Regards Bernard
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.
12017-07-06 05:57:39 UTCBCNorwich Hello, Welcome to OpenStreetMap.
I see your original POI has been removed from London.
You are now on the correct continent and near the right city, but the POI is still incorrectly placed for that address.
If you need any help please just ask, I could fix it if you wish?
One other thing, why d...
12017-07-05 16:50:30 UTCBCNorwich Hello, I've made corrections made to the address so that it conforms to OpenStreetMap best practice.

12016-12-27 04:35:57 UTCnammala Hi skyegod,

Thanks and contributing to OpenStreetMap. May I know the reason behind adding cricket pitch and football pitch in the Imagery. It seems to be inappropriate in the Map. Could you please confirm.

Regards,
nammala
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.
12017-07-03 19:07:22 UTCBCNorwich The maxwidth must refer/be connected to the highway, not a node unconnected to the highway.
"Width Restriction" is a description not a name.
The width must be in the correct manner (maxwidth=6'6") to be recognized.
Nodes are removed as I cannot correct them.
12017-07-03 18:50:33 UTCBCNorwich Name corrected
12017-07-03 18:49:34 UTCBCNorwich Address corrected
12017-07-03 18:10:26 UTCBCNorwich According to their website which I've added the name is "Saracens". I've amended accordingly. Regard
12017-07-03 17:53:38 UTCBCNorwich Hello, this POI has several problems, the city, postcode, street and name should use capitol letters. There is no hospital or emergency facility. There is nothing nearby named "entrance_to_surgery".
I have properly added the address to Bayfield Surgery building, also added the website, s...
12017-07-02 06:57:38 UTCBCNorwich Removed duplicate building (502893780), several buildings can easily be seen here.
12017-07-01 07:54:06 UTCBCNorwich Removed duplicated way.
12017-07-01 07:46:05 UTCBCNorwich Hello There and welcome to OpenStreetMap.
I've amended your house and garden additions to better tie in with the way that these items are usually mapped/tagged.
Regards Bernard
22017-07-01 11:13:19 UTCTRUDGILL Thank you Bernard.
12017-06-30 06:43:06 UTCBCNorwich Thank You
12017-06-30 06:38:10 UTCBCNorwich Hello and Welcome to OpenStreetMap.
Your changes/additions ref The Relay Building have resulted in the adjacent building being dragged out of shape. Also there is now a building on top of another building.
I would suggest you revert your changes and try again but please properly inspect your chan...
12017-06-23 14:52:43 UTCBCNorwich Hello and Welcome to OpenStreetMap.
Did you mean to amend the name of that section? Because nothing has changed. Princes Walk needs to be split into two sections at the corner then the north section renamed. If you need help or would like it amended for you please just ask? Regards Bernard
22017-06-23 15:35:19 UTCLarkmeadow Hi Bernard,
I cannot figure out how to make these changes!
I noticed that that small section of road parallel to the main road was incorrectly shown as Princes Walk when it should be Normanston Drive. (ie The same as the main road. I know, I used to live there!) It only becomes Princes Walk at the...
32017-06-23 17:24:29 UTCBCNorwich Hello Bill, I'll guide you on how to proceed with the iD editor.
Highlight/select the way (road) you want to edit in this case Princes Walk.
Place your cursor/pointer over the node (small circle) at the point you wish to divide the road into two sections.
Right click the node, you get a drop down...
42017-06-23 17:29:09 UTCBCNorwich Forgot to say if you want to insert a node to split a way at another place other than an existing node. Place cursor at the position and double left click.
52017-06-23 17:59:58 UTCLarkmeadow Think that's done now, thanks.
Much easier on a laptop than on a phone !
62017-06-23 18:07:54 UTCBCNorwich Yes looks OK!
Bye!
12017-06-22 07:39:52 UTCBCNorwich Hello,
Your mapping of the Port Salford Greenway is done in a way that duplicates some highways, (particularly Grange Road, Farm Road). Is there a separate cycleway here? If not the the cycleway status should be tagged/drawn as part of the existing highway. Duplicating highways disrupts routeing on...
12017-06-22 06:41:56 UTCBCNorwich Hello Sidewalk beside a highway a better tagged as part of that highway except if separated by a barrier of some kind. Please see :- https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:footway%3Dsidewalk
I've removed this footpath because mapped such it is on top of the road, makes a duplication and messes wi...
12017-06-19 12:04:27 UTCBCNorwich Hello and Welcome to OpenStreetMap.
I have removed your advertising nodes.
There are not two shops in the middle of the street. Your business is online and does not to my knowledge have a high street outlet that could be mapped, (not even an office). Regards
12017-06-07 06:45:47 UTCBCNorwich Hello and Welcome to OpenStreetMap.
I have reverted your highway changes to their original state. Reason being that no missing road section was added, two roads were duplicated and a 20mph limit was removed.
I can't actually see what you wanted to achieve but if you can explain maybe someone can h...
22017-06-18 18:46:00 UTCSupabento When I was looking at the map it appeared that the sections I added were missing from the map. I was using the satellite view if this makes any difference? Apologies for the confusion.
32017-06-18 19:00:21 UTCBCNorwich No problem, does the map you're looking at look OK now? If not could you give a link to it? Regards Bernard
42017-06-18 21:32:40 UTCSupabento Yeah it looks fine now
12017-06-16 06:26:58 UTCBCNorwich Hi Node: 3273481349 tagged as a stile is not connected to a highway therefore it cannot be determined to which way the stile is a barrier. (The barrier (stile) should be connected/joined to the way it disrupts). Regards
12017-06-16 06:03:19 UTCBCNorwich Hello There, just wanted to let you know that the park area (453552380, v2) has become distorted. Regards
12017-06-16 05:55:53 UTCBCNorwich Hello and Welcome to OpenStreetMap.
Can you explain your reasoning for placing a highway=rest_area here please?
I refer you to :- https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:highway%3Drest_area
It does not look like a conventional rest area so I'll remove the node if I don't get a comment. Regards.
12017-06-14 06:44:03 UTCBCNorwich Hello There, Just wanted to point out that the way "highway=unclassified
ref=U3064" (south section) that you've added duplicates the ways that are already mapped on that route. The duplication of highways seriously disrupts any attempt by software to route over these ways.
At the river y...
22017-06-14 13:21:19 UTCandyfrizzle BCNorwich, Thanks for the feedback. I've reviewed and hopefully correctly amended the highways.
32017-06-15 16:58:37 UTCtrigpoint Hi Andy, I have a few concerns about these edits.
You have changed this way from a track to unclassified and included the surface=unpaved, in the UK it is reasonable to expect an unclassified road to be surfaced, I believe that unless it has been surfaced it should have been left as a track.
What ...
42017-06-15 18:17:51 UTCandyfrizzle trigpoint,
I dont want to start an argument of any sort, but it was my understanding that contributors to the OSM project should make their contributions as accurate as possible, and that has been my intention, based on facts.
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. There's nothing wrong with it per se - there are lots of dirt roads in the States mapped that way, for example - but it's slightly unexpected in a UK context where highway=unclassified isn't used by custom for such ...
72017-06-16 12:05:46 UTCSK53 Just thought I'd add links to the similar highways which I mentioned earlier:

Tillington, West Sussex: https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/273951783

Two in Marefield, Leics:

Red Lodge Road: https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/198802841
Blackspinney Lane: https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/19515...
82017-06-16 14:03:04 UTCandyfrizzle Thanks for the further input, I have no problems making the amendments as suggested prior. Northumberland has a vast network of unsurfaced unclassified roads with vastly varying roads surfaces. I would not be surprised is there are more than a hundred in this county alone. I will try and work throug...
92017-06-16 14:22:24 UTCSK53 Thanks Andy. I've added this to the wiki https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/United_Kingdom_Tagging_Guidelines#Unpaved_Country_Roads. It's largely based on the discussion here, but I should also add some examples from Northumberland too. I think pressure of use in SE England, Peak District etc has l...
12017-06-12 06:18:04 UTCBCNorwich Hi and welcome to OpenStreetMap.
I've removed your residential area (Cardea) from because it was within another residential area (duplication), I've added a new place=suburb (Cardea) to reflect your new residential area.
12017-06-08 06:14:08 UTCBCNorwich Hello and Welcome to OpenStreetMap.
Just wanted to let you know that if you zoom in the houses can be drawn with more precision and therefore more detail, then square the corners up. You end up with a beautifully rendered map.
If you need any help please just ask, Regards Bernard
12017-06-07 10:36:05 UTCBCNorwich Welcome to OpenStreetMap, please be advised that your hotel is already mapped to the OSM database, thus the new POI is remove as it is a duplication.
12017-06-07 06:09:40 UTCBCNorwich Hi, I've updated your tag information to conform to OSM best practice. Regards
12017-06-07 05:50:34 UTCBCNorwich Hi, your new information tourism=attraction has been added to the existing mapped features, the duplicate features therefore unneeded are removed. Regards
12017-06-06 13:03:20 UTCBCNorwich It may be used as a park but it is officially a registered common.
12017-06-06 06:37:47 UTCBCNorwich Hi, I think something might have gone wrong with the grass, heath and residential areas, (squared off and now have self intersections on the outlines). Regards
12017-06-03 08:10:23 UTCBCNorwich Hi and Welcome to OpenStreetMap.
I've added back the landuse=recreation_ground tag to Ketts Park. The park is a recreation ground and indeed Ketts Park is a Community & Recreation facility.
An area can have several descriptive tags (a landuse and an amenity tag).
Regards Bernard
12017-05-18 16:59:57 UTCBCNorwich Hi, can you give more details about the park the name perhaps. Because that area contains much that does not look like a park. Thanks.
22017-06-01 06:26:38 UTCBCNorwich No response so what looks like fiction is removed.
12017-05-28 06:22:29 UTCBCNorwich Hello and welcome to OpenStreetMap.
I reverted your recent changes to OSM because I can find nothing to verify them as available to general folk. They look like a route used by a select group and thus are not suitable for OSM. By all means please use OSM to create your own routes (and even print th...
12017-05-27 05:51:23 UTCBCNorwich Hello there and Welcome to OpenStreetMap.
I have reverted your changes because they drag some highways a long way out of position.
You may not be aware of this happening. What you inadvertently uploaded to the database is immediately used to change the map used by folk all over the world. So pleas...
12017-05-25 14:53:34 UTCBCNorwich This business was mapped as a POI, I have amalgamated all info on one POI and removed the duplicate. Regards.
12017-05-25 06:53:41 UTCBCNorwich Hi, Did you mean for FP 60 to join onto Great North Road? because now it only goes to the edge of the wood area. Regards Bernard
22017-05-27 10:44:39 UTCLaurie_cs Originally yes, but on reflection I will extend to the road. Local maps show the path only going to the woods, OS map shows the path going to the road. will extend and thanks for your comments. Laurie
12017-05-25 05:48:43 UTCBCNorwich Several of the buildings redrawn without the self intersection on the outlines. Please have a look it's easy to do.
12017-05-25 05:36:36 UTCBCNorwich Hatfield Police Station And Magistrates Court (495456784, v1)
This is duplication and outline has self intersection, (not to OSM best practice) so removed.
12017-05-23 17:03:16 UTCBCNorwich Hello, I removed the sidewalk tags, they are used on a footpath beside a road but separated from the road usually by a kerb.
Removed several duplicated sections of path and tidied up some paths, circularised a couple of paths. Regards Bernard
12017-05-22 06:55:17 UTCBCNorwich Adjust areas, remove self intersecting section, remove duplicated areas from school.
22017-05-22 06:59:08 UTCBCNorwich Expand abbreviation of church name. Adjust building outlines.
12017-05-20 14:23:16 UTCBCNorwich Hi, you've placed the node (1689605515 105 Fenchurch St) on the party wall between two buildings.
12017-05-20 05:52:23 UTCBCNorwich I set post code to OSM standard.
12017-05-18 19:30:21 UTCBCNorwich Hello and Welcome to OpenStreetMap.
Your moving of the footpath has also dragged the roads at each end out of place. May I suggest reverting the changes and starting again. I can revert everything back as it was for you if you wish. The two roads need to be corrected as now routing is messed up. Re...
22017-05-18 21:01:52 UTCLaurie_cs Just looked at the roads and they appear ok, but if you think they are wrong please revert all changes and I will try to move the footpath again. The Great North Road appears strange it has 3 lines connecting to each other.

Laurie
32017-05-19 06:13:41 UTCBCNorwich Hello, the problems with Dancers Hill Road are the same as the Great North Road. 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 maps.me 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 :- https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:oneway) 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...
