22018-07-19 03:58:45 UTCsomkun This is my first change. Is there a way to patch/rollback my change so I can do it correctly?
32018-07-19 08:41:40 UTCGlassman Don't worry about this one. There wasnt that much history. I'm sure you'll get the opportunity to correct more road names. Especially in Snohomish county.
12018-07-16 19:28:49 UTCGlassman Tip: You can square buildings by selecting the outline and typing a "s" or right click and use the square icon. Buildings look some much nicer.

12018-07-14 02:01:08 UTCGlassman FYI - we usually like to keep existing features even if the geometry changes - it helps keep a history of objects. In this case you could have just realigned the existing streets and added the new ones.

12018-07-14 01:54:01 UTCGlassman It looks like you added an apartment in the middle of the road. I'm going to remove since its likely not there. I'll send you some info if you want to contribute to OSM.

12018-07-12 22:41:38 UTCGlassman We've been having a discussion on changing the ref on the way. The concensus is that the US:I should only be used on the relation, instead of the way. The reason is too many renderers use older method. Can you change them back or do you want me to revert these I5 changesets?

If you haven't joined...
22018-07-12 23:01:00 UTCavuton Oh, that's unfortunate, just went with what I saw on the wiki. Please revert if you have the time, I'll be AFK for a bit. Thanks for the word!

I've been doing this since 2011, and I still had to ask. It's not an obvious situation. I limit my self to bike routes and adding the occasional roundabout to existing route relations. They are a pain. I'm also going to be gone for a while. I plan to hold a meetup when I get back in Sep...

22018-07-12 21:19:29 UTCavuton Yes, I live on this street. It's a historic district and right of way is never a given (people often park on one side, in the same direction.
32018-07-12 21:24:06 UTCGlassman thanks - Most city streets are two lane, but I know that not all are.
12018-07-12 15:08:08 UTCGlassman Does Elma Paintball Field really exist? I can't find any reference to it online. The land is privately owned according to county assessor's records.
22018-07-18 21:53:27 UTCfreebeer ?
elma paintball, fed to google.co.uk, gives enough text hits and descriptions, including address of 20 S Union road, that it seems reasonable to me.

12018-07-12 02:22:45 UTCGlassman I don't think your oneway section of Jersey street makes sense. Either the whole block should be one way or two way. It looks like a drop off. The drop off can be oneway and should be tagged as a service road. If it's not part of the city street.

22018-07-12 03:30:04 UTCavuton You were absolutely right. I take this road every day and I thought I knew it better :/. Anyhow, thanks for the review, I fixed it up via changeset 60632469.
32018-07-12 03:31:08 UTCavuton And I should have said that the turn off is, actually, part of Jersey Street and not really a service road as far as I can tell.
12018-07-12 02:19:30 UTCGlassman The crosswalk should be connected through the island otherwise routers will be unable to use this crosswalk. I also add a node for the street when it connects to the crosswalk. That can warn the drivers of the crosswalk.

12018-07-02 14:53:18 UTCGlassman From the aerial imagery, those look like service roads for farm equipment. Nor do they match the imagery. They should also connect to a road. Can you please fix? I'll send you a message with more information to help you get started.

If two POI (point of interest) exists one building, please don't add two different keys on the building. Add two points with different keys inside the building instead.

The view point isn't accessible from any trail or highway. Is it in the correct place? Also, when you make wide spread edits, it is a good idea to upload after each area is done.
22018-06-20 08:11:36 UTCCarnildo Glassman, Tori B is editing with Maps.me. From what I understand of how the program works, they've got no control over how often or how much they upload at any given time.
12018-06-19 23:48:51 UTCGlassman I see you fixed my concerns. Thanks
12018-06-19 23:47:53 UTCGlassman Did you make the climb to the peak? Impressive. The trail should be highway=path. Footway is more like a sidewalk. Also - access=no means no one should use the trail. Is that correct?

12018-06-13 05:59:31 UTCGlassman Some tips: 1. parks should only be added where an actual park exists. 2. align footways to the image. 3. use tags to describe objects, but not the name= tag. Only use the name= for official named features.

22018-04-03 14:52:08 UTCTyler Hardy I check the street sign this morning it is actually Southeast 312Th Place
32018-04-04 16:35:58 UTCGlassman Made the update. Thanks for checking
12018-04-04 16:00:22 UTCGlassman What - no spam
12018-04-04 05:17:02 UTCGlassman editing tip - the editor will give you nearby street names. Just use the drop down to pick the street name. Also - we use un-abbreviated street names. Reason - software has a hard time un-abbreviating.
12018-04-04 00:15:51 UTCGlassman Nice job on the houses!
12018-04-03 17:40:13 UTCGlassman I called the business - they are located in Snohomish, not UVillage. Please stop putting garbage in OSM.
12018-04-01 05:22:11 UTCGlassman The home will look nicer if you square the outline. Just select the outline, type an "s" or right click and use the square icon.

12018-03-30 21:14:44 UTCGlassman These parking nodes are not very useful. They are not in a amenity parking area, or even near roads. Can you fix them to work with the existing OSM features? For example, a number are underground - where is the service road leading into the parking lot?
22018-03-30 21:20:34 UTCGarageHop Yes, all of these are underground garages. I tried to carefully place the pin on the location of the parking garage entrance gate.

32018-03-30 21:31:13 UTCGlassman I can't find a good example right off hand, but look at the Sinking Ship garage in Pioneer Square, https://www.openstreetmap.org/#map=19/47.60220/-122.33267. Also directly to the north is parking off James Street in the building.
42018-03-30 21:33:13 UTCGlassman There is also amenity=parking_entrance. Look at the wiki article, https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:amenity%3Dparking_entrance
52018-03-30 21:36:36 UTCGlassman Ultimately we want routers to take people directly to their destination. It would also be nice if you can add capacity:disabled. We are doing work on a map for people with limited mobility. Having that info can help them out.
12018-03-24 20:06:50 UTCGlassman Thanks - just one thing to remember next time - we spell out street name to avoid problems software has trying to unabbreviate.

I went ahead and fixed it.

32018-03-14 16:40:42 UTCGlassman You should absolutely tag those objects. My only suggestion is to move the node closer to the actual position. I thinking adding artwork to OSM enriches the data. Disclaimer - I contributed to some public art in Seattle. A bronze note symbol in the Central District.

12018-02-06 02:56:48 UTCGlassman Does the city refer to this a Waterfront Trail park?
22018-02-06 08:16:01 UTCnikolawannabe Not generally, it's usually just Waterfront Park area, with Hollywood Beach on the east and Valley Creek Estuary farther left. The entire trail area should be considered a park though.
32018-02-07 02:18:15 UTCGlassman Perfect - that's we love local mappers!

12018-02-04 00:41:08 UTCGlassman Why did you remove the house at the intersection of 103rd Avenue Southeast and Kaylen Place? and the street name on 103rd Avenue Southeast? Please get back to me.
22018-02-04 05:06:59 UTChairyfatguy That house was torn down and a new one is being constructed and the driveway to the old house was marked as a road for some reason. There is no 103rd Ave SE there - it is a private easement not maintained by the city. (I've lived there for 20 yrs. now.)

12018-01-31 06:17:20 UTCGlassman from the aerial imagery, this looks like more than scrub. It looks like farm land as well. Do you think it the boundary of the scrub needs refining?
12018-01-30 00:40:24 UTCGlassman It looks the like extended portion of the alley should be tagged highway=footway. If you leave it as highway=service, it tells routers that's it okay for cars and trucks to go the length of the way. I'm getting this partially from your changeset comment "extended alley to include foot access.
12018-01-29 17:33:37 UTCGlassman According to the county - it may be a service road. I changed it, but if you disagree - you can change it back.
22018-01-31 01:44:33 UTCMike Hebert You are probably correct - there are 4 houses serviced by it. This was my first OSM edit, and I wasn't sure how to classify it. Thanks for commenting / fixing it!

12018-01-29 03:07:22 UTCGlassman That appears to be more of a retention pond. It's tagged as landuse=basin, basin=retention. Also we don't use descriptive names. That's the purpose of the tags. name is only for officially designated names, like on buildings or businesses.

32018-01-27 21:20:07 UTCfreebeer Hi Glassman,
I believe I can see two aerials, at least one guyed, to the southwest of the GNIS import node.
This is in the Bing z20 aerial imagery that is getting somewhat long in the tooth now: one is prettu much 39,9m southwest with a small fence surrouning; the primary is 60,5m west-south-west ...
12018-01-26 20:38:06 UTCGlassman Did you mean landuse=forest instead of natural=wood? Forest implies that the area is harvested while natural=wood just means a bunch of trees.
22018-01-26 21:09:47 UTCKitSEA Thank you for the clarification! In that case, it should be natural=wood.
32018-01-26 23:11:34 UTCGlassman It's a mistake we all make. It's really just a subtle difference and on the scheme of things not that big a deal. It's not like someone is going to come in next week and start cutting down trees.
12018-01-26 16:46:27 UTCGlassman We don't add lot boundaries in OSM. Just physically observable features. I changed your areas into address nodes.
12018-01-26 00:19:33 UTCGlassman its not really a park, more common grounds for the apartment complex. Parks are fairly well defined in the wiki. see https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:leisure%3Dpark

You added an untagged way from 118th Place Northeast. It wasn't on any of the imagery plus it ran right through the house at 11840. I removed it. My other questions is you added an address node for 11905 NE 70th in front of the same house at 11840. Is that correct? I couldn't see another ...

12018-01-23 17:45:28 UTCGlassman looks like we were editing at the same time. I've seen this SEO remove other hotel building outlines only to leave a node with missing tags, like that its a hotel.

Thanks for catching fast.
12018-01-23 06:35:27 UTCGlassman I thought Pass Island was already part of Deception Pass Park but it doesn't appear to be. According to the state it should be part of the park. I wonder when it got removed.
12018-01-22 22:23:00 UTCGlassman Landuse=residential is usually around the entire block or even development. From the imagery - it looks like grass, you could use landcover=grass. There is also a landuse=grass but it's an artifact left over from the early years of OSM.
22018-01-22 23:54:46 UTCzimmykid I switched it thanks. Also why does it say NEW HOUSE in the discription?
32018-01-22 23:58:26 UTCzimmykid Also I was wondering why the park I added isn't showing up that is just a block north of this.

52018-01-23 00:06:23 UTCGlassman I don't see the park. We've had some vandalism with added parks, people are quick to revert if they think it's false. I did change your landuse=forest to natural=wood. Forest implies someone harvests the wood, while wood just indicates a bunch of trees. It looked more like a bunch of trees to me.
62018-01-23 00:08:22 UTCGlassman There is a park you added next to WA410. You might have to clear your cache to see it render.
12018-01-15 16:38:22 UTCGlassman How do you figure this area is a recreational grounds? Every time I've walked in the area, it appears as just a grassy area.
12018-01-14 01:00:48 UTCGlassman Tip: either right click on the building outline and select the square icon to square the buildings or select the outline and hit the "s" key.
12018-01-14 00:57:56 UTCGlassman According to the city this is not a park.
12018-01-08 07:02:50 UTCGlassman The address is already tagged on the house. A duplicate node really doesn't serve any purpose.
22018-01-12 21:09:53 UTCad_be I understand how the geocode is duplicate address data and have removed it.

22018-01-06 00:00:51 UTCHipparchus Think that’s an accident. In my mind I have the edit as being a FedEx office from my earlier edit. Still working my way through with help from the wiki.
32018-01-06 00:09:18 UTCGlassman No problem - I added it back. FYI - the wikidata tag is the permanent link to the article. Wikipedia titles can change but they keep the same wikidata reference number.

We hold regular meetups in Seattle - there is a link in the message I sent you. We are always happy to have new people join us....

12018-01-03 21:41:53 UTCGlassman looks like you may have accidentally dragged the footpath. I went ahead and removed it since the construction will probably change the area.If you know the boundaries of the construction area, you can add the tag construction=apartments or landuse=construction to the area.
12018-01-03 21:35:26 UTCGlassman Looks like who ever added houses near the lake did it wrong. houses should be building=house and then add addr:housenumber, street, etc. I modified your house.

12017-12-29 15:25:31 UTCGlassman I noticed you have updated a number of the San Juan Island Ferry routes. Have you tested them out with a router?
12017-12-29 15:20:42 UTCGlassman I adjusted the park boundary to match the city of seattle park boundary. I noticed you had included one of the apartment bldgs inside of the park.
12017-12-28 06:49:51 UTCGlassman Let me know if you need help with relations. They can get tricky.
12017-12-26 18:16:26 UTCGlassman Playgrounds have their own tag leisure=playground. Often they are located inside of a park, but this one doesn't appear to be. I made the update.
12017-12-26 06:06:52 UTCGlassman Two things. first, if you tag an area, it needs a tag describing the feature. Second, it helps to leave more descriptive changeset notes. Such as added building or added landuse.
12017-12-25 22:19:41 UTCGlassman Try not to connect buildings to roads. It may cause confusion - especially when the viaduct gets torn down.
22017-12-26 03:03:17 UTCweb_second Thank you for pointing out this error. In the future, I will avoid connecting unrelated elements.
12017-12-23 00:11:12 UTCGlassman Looks like you acidentially dragged the final node way to the north. I've fixed it.
12017-12-22 18:45:04 UTCGlassman This is DNR land, but according to the DNR the land is for scientific study/use by a school. Not military. While it may be used as a shooting range, that isn't what the DNR has designated it use for. Can you either remove it or correct it? The actual size of the parcel is much larger.
12017-12-21 19:19:37 UTCuser_5359 Welcome to OSM! Note that in OSM description of the objects has the highest priority. Objects that have only one name, have little sense. As home page for the question "How do I describe you?" I recommend the web site http://wiki.openstreetmap.org.

12017-12-19 00:15:11 UTCGlassman Thanks for adding the healthcare tag. Too often it missed by new mappers. - One suggestion - use unabbreviated spelling of street names. We use the full spelling since software has a hard time unabbreviating which can cause confusion. I'll fix it.

12017-12-15 16:50:49 UTCGlassman A gate already exists on Pigeon Creek Road. BTW - gates are normally a node on a way. That tells routers to not proceed - unless allowed by the gate. I'm going to remove your gate since its a duplicate.
12017-12-14 00:37:27 UTCGlassman Is Summerwood a park a city or county facility. I couldn't find any mention. Also the land is owned by the HOA/Developer - so most likely a landuse=recreation_ground
12017-12-13 22:54:45 UTCGlassman Forest is for areas that companies use for logging. natural=woods are for areas like this. I changed it.
12017-12-13 21:35:49 UTCGlassman Street names should be unabbreviated and the actual road looks more like a residential than a tertiary. I'm made the changes.
22017-12-13 21:48:35 UTCuser_5359 Welcome to OSM! And the this street is part of a pipline relation (http://www.openstreetmap.org/relation/7809175)? Or can I delete this information?
32017-12-13 22:25:47 UTCaHuda Sorry, i don't get your question. There is no pipeline, that's the new road that the builder just made. It's named as 'SouthEast 14th CT.' The road is shared among16 new homes and is a dead end.
42017-12-13 22:30:44 UTCuser_5359 But you added also the relation 7809175 (follow the link).

I assume I can delete them, or?
52017-12-13 22:32:14 UTCaHuda yes, you can delete it.
62017-12-13 22:34:15 UTCaHuda Based on your experience, any idea of how long will it take to reflect the addresses correctly for mails and packages to be delivered? As this place doesnt show up anywhere, I am unable to order anything on Amazon or any website online. Thanks for your help !!
72017-12-13 22:39:57 UTCGlassman I just talked to a GIS rep for Snohomish County last week. They send new addresses to the Post Office as they happen. That doesn't help UPS and Fedex, but they must run into this problem all the time. I would stop in to their store fronts to make sure they know how to deliver to you. You could give ...
82017-12-13 22:42:33 UTCaHuda ok thanks !!
92017-12-14 04:54:34 UTCuser_5359 Relation 7809175 has been deleted.
12017-12-12 05:40:19 UTCGlassman Is it really named Private Road or is it just not a city maintained road? Could it be a highway=service, service=driveway?
12017-12-11 22:02:55 UTCGlassman The footway is tagged foot=no. Did you mean that people shouldn't be walking on it? Usually a footway is for people with horse and cycle the two big options.
12017-12-11 21:55:51 UTCGlassman Only the building should outlined. Not the whole complex. Instead use landuse=residential along with the name.
12017-12-11 16:50:23 UTCGlassman Looks good. Two tips, spell out street names. OSM used full street names since software has a hard time unabbreviating names. Also, check out the wiki on opening hours. https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:opening_hours
12017-12-10 07:20:55 UTCGlassman OSM uses full spellings on street names. It should be South 279th Street.
12017-12-09 16:19:08 UTCGlassman Thanks for adding the street. When adding streets and they don't appear on the imagery, use the pancake icon on the right to see if one is more current. I went ahead and made some adjustments to better align to the imagery.
12017-12-09 03:01:44 UTCGlassman A pier can be either a polygon or a way, but probably not both. See https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:man_made%3Dpier for more info.
12017-12-09 01:16:40 UTCGlassman Nice
12017-12-07 03:13:51 UTCGlassman You had the building connected to the road. Unless the road goes through the building it should not be connected or on top of the road. It's fixed. Try different background images to pick which one gives you the best view to help draw buildings. Use a mouse if you have one will also help.
12017-12-07 03:09:49 UTCGlassman You can square up the buildings in iD buy selecting the buildings and either type an "s" or right click on the outline and select the square icon. They look much nicer that way. I fixed some.
12017-12-05 03:52:17 UTCGlassman The footpaths are needed to route across the plaza. You may want to add them back in.
12017-12-05 03:01:25 UTCGlassman Nice edits. It would be helpful if you could give a better description of what you did. For example, added storage facility and landuse
22017-12-05 07:47:51 UTCCarnildo It looks like you did what's called a "node drag" here, where you accidentally grabbed part of an object and pulled it across the map. I've fixed it, but it's something to watch out for when you're editing.
12017-12-04 06:34:48 UTCGlassman Please only add verifiable features to OSM. I removed the park and pond.
12017-12-04 06:32:14 UTCGlassman The apartment building doesn't seem to match the aerial imagery. Try using a different background image but using the layers icon on the left side of the editor. Instead of Bing, try one of the Digital Globe offerings or the ESRI.

Also, when you draw a building make sure you square it (assuming ...
22017-12-05 04:29:43 UTCcougMapper Thanks for the advice! I am new to this and was testing it on a random apartment building. I hope my new fixes look better!
32017-12-05 04:37:35 UTCcougMapper Pokemon GO
12017-12-03 22:24:40 UTCGlassman Nice. You can square building by selecting the outline and hitting "s" or right click on the outline and use the square icon. I went ahead and squared your building.
22017-12-03 22:55:54 UTCGlassman Also - the roundabout is tagged highway=roundabout. I made the change. Not sure about the relation
12017-12-03 06:35:46 UTCGlassman nice job on the building
12017-12-03 06:34:43 UTCGlassman remember to square buildings (assuming they are actually square) either select the building outline and hitting "s" or right click and use the square icon.
12017-12-03 06:29:03 UTCGlassman The park you added is actually private property according to Clark County Records. I removed it
12017-12-03 06:21:58 UTCGlassman I modified the park to match clark county records as best I could without a shapefile.
12017-12-03 06:11:04 UTCGlassman I'm confused. Your two edits show that the fire station is in the wrong location, but only rivers and some fast food shops were changed or added. What you did looks really good. It's just the changeset comment that doesn't match your edits.
22017-12-03 06:15:00 UTCuser_5359 Welcome to OSM! Please be careful when editing the map data. You moved a node more than 100 meters, so that the associated street ran across other streets and buildings. Please check http://www.openstreetmap.org/node/1768764432/history
12017-12-02 17:03:01 UTCGlassman One suggestion - please include a more descriptive changeset description. Like added service roads. It help others later on try to understand why the map is the way it is.
12017-12-01 22:01:50 UTCGlassman the name tag shouldn't be used to describe a feature. You could tag the area as leisure=nature_reserve and leave the pond as it was originally tagged.
12017-12-01 21:55:23 UTCGlassman The park looks more like a common area for the apartments and not open to the public. I suspect leisure=common and access=private would make more sense
12017-12-01 21:46:33 UTCGlassman We spell out street names in OSM to help software out. (they can abbreviate but have a hard time un-abbreviating.) There is a pulldown for the street name in the editor which lists the nearby streets so you don't even have to type it out. I updated the street on the Circle K station
12017-12-01 21:42:37 UTCGlassman Thanks for adding the bike lanes.
12017-11-30 22:56:48 UTCGlassman You did very good in placement of the new road. It is visible using the Digitalgloble standard background. There are a number of images you can select from besides Bing. Two Digital Globe and ESRI.

If you do have another feature keeping you from adding, just move the feature, and then when done,...
12017-11-29 23:38:33 UTCGlassman i see you fixed up Bothell admin area. What did the new users do? I'm getting ready to welcome them to OSM and I want to make sure they understand what they did.
22017-11-30 04:43:30 UTCuser_5359 I did not really understand why the relation is displayed in this changeset. My correction is therefore not based on an action of the newbie, but is a standardization of the relationship description.
12017-11-28 00:33:22 UTCGlassman If the business is closed you can just delete the mode. I usually save the address info for use by the next occupant
12017-11-26 22:40:31 UTCGlassman JOSM Validator is complaining of errors on your platform in Mount Vernon, WA.
12017-11-24 00:06:27 UTCGlassman Nice - I removed a duplicate park node from the lower left corner of the park.
12017-11-23 16:23:23 UTCGlassman Did you intend the Ptarmigan Traverse and the other trail you added to be a footway instead of path? Footway is something often seen in a city park where a path would be what I expect in this area.
22017-11-23 18:03:34 UTCAdam Schneider From what I've seen around here, both of them are frequently are used for hiking trails; I chose "Foot Path" because it's not open to other modes of transportation. But I see in the wiki that highway=path is probably a better choice.
32017-11-23 18:08:23 UTCGlassman Thanks for changing it!
12017-11-22 17:06:01 UTCGlassman I reverted your edit. Please read the wiki on how to edit and use proper tags.
12017-11-20 23:43:35 UTCGlassman I expanded the street name. OSM spells out street names to avoid software problems trying to un-abbreviate them.
12017-11-18 16:06:12 UTCGlassman should have been made by my Glassman username.
12017-11-18 16:05:57 UTCGlassman should have been made by my Glassman username.
12017-11-18 16:05:50 UTCGlassman should have been made by my Glassman username.
12017-11-18 16:05:41 UTCGlassman should have been made by my Glassman username.
12017-11-18 16:04:42 UTCGlassman this should have been from my Glassman user name
12017-11-17 06:18:00 UTCGlassman Instead of using the name tag to describe feature, use an appropriate tag instead or no name tag. For example, "pond on golf course" is tagged as a pond and it's inside of the course. That's all that's needed. Descriptions can be used instead, for example the retirement home if you don't k...
12017-11-17 06:12:11 UTCGlassman It looks like someone before you created the multipolygon for the college boundary which is perfect. Unfortunately all of the buildings inside are also part of the relation. They probably should be stand alone.
12017-11-16 20:07:31 UTCGlassman The BLM does own land where you added the recreation site, but's its not listed as a park. You could make it landuse=public, and label it as BLM lands. See http://gis.co.kittitas.wa.us/compas/default.aspx for ownership of the land. Also look up landuse in wiki.openstreetmap.org
12017-11-16 17:53:17 UTCGlassman Landuse is a more appropriate boundary for a school. Admin boundaries are used for cities, counties, etc. I went ahead and made the change as well as modified the area to match Clark County Records.
22017-11-16 20:48:11 UTCslime666! Okay! Summit view is on the campus yes. The building in the middle is CASEE while the buildings on the left and right are Summit View High school.
12017-11-16 16:44:36 UTCGlassman Is Summit View High School part of CASEE? It is included in your boundary.
12017-11-16 00:37:47 UTCGlassman We don't use descriptive names, like name=Appartment. I changed the building=yes to building=apartments.
12017-11-15 18:41:22 UTCGlassman I reversed George Creek direction. Rivers and streams should be the same as the direction as the water flow. Also, the path, Asotin Waterfront Trail ends in the Chief Looking Glass park but doesn't connect to the service road and parking lot. Should it? By making a connection, it will enable routers...
12017-11-14 23:47:47 UTCGlassman You can draw a area around the development, tag it as landuse=residential and then add a name. Otherwise your node will not show up on the rendered map.
12017-11-14 23:46:33 UTCGlassman We use full spellings of street names in OSM to avoid any confusion that software has trying to unabbreviate the name.
12017-11-14 22:34:55 UTCGlassman Trailheads can be tagged on the trail. I went ahead and made the change. See https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Proposed_features/trailhead - It's still in proposal status, but over 500 trailheads have been added to the OSM.
12017-11-12 22:06:22 UTCNakaner Hi Glassmann,

please do not use your normal OSM account if you do imports. Create a dedicated import account instead. https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Import/Guidelines

Best regards

Michael
22017-11-12 23:47:43 UTCGlassman Michael - thanks for the reminder. I know better.
12017-11-12 15:18:23 UTCGlassman I moved the apartment building you added to it wasn't on the alley. Although I'm not sure what will have to the alley once construction is completed.
12017-11-11 23:43:33 UTCGlassman Only use name for buildings with established names.
12017-11-09 20:47:46 UTCGlassman The building outline should only cover the actual building. Parking lots are separate features. I made the correction to the building.
12017-11-09 20:44:26 UTCGlassman Can you add a tag to describe the Hospice Friends feature? Is it an office=ngo or some kind of shop?
12017-11-09 20:42:02 UTCGlassman please remember to square your buildings to match the imagery. (select the outline and use the "s" key to square it.)
12017-11-09 20:38:40 UTCGlassman I added a building tag but can you give more detail why this building is called the historic ft sampson tourist destination? Is there a website?
12017-11-09 20:32:24 UTCGlassman The storage area isn't a building. I changed it to landuse. You can add the individual buildings if you like.
12017-11-09 20:29:05 UTCGlassman I think you might have been trying to do a building outline. Use the area tool in iD to create an area and tag it as building=apartments. I went ahead and made the change including merging the node with the outline
12017-11-09 20:12:59 UTCGlassman I expanded the street name for 50th Court South - OSM uses full names to prevent problem software has expanding abbreviated names.
22017-11-10 00:10:18 UTCjeph125 Thank you!
12017-11-09 15:17:21 UTCGlassman missing and incorrect tags. This area appears to be residential not an area with retail offices.
12017-11-05 05:21:21 UTCGlassman Thanks for improving the park. I did some of the initial trails a while back but haven't been back since.
22017-11-05 21:02:39 UTCejain I'd do some more improvements, if I were able to overlay the map from http://parks.state.wa.us/DocumentCenter/Home/View/1938 in the iD editor...
32017-11-05 23:13:16 UTCGlassman Unfortunately it isn't a geopdf or you might be able to open it in iD or JOSM. WA RCO has some trail data for the state. We are missing a couple of trails in the section north of HWY 20, and a bunch of trails south of HWY 20. If you want to give the JOSM editor a try, I could send you a shapefile wi...
12017-11-05 05:25:08 UTCGlassman I added the address in the changeset comment to the node you added. All features, nodes, ways and polygons need proper tags otherwise they are pretty much useless. I'll send you a message with some suggestions on how to learn more.
12017-11-03 15:19:06 UTCGlassman I removed the living streets under the powerlines. Not sure what you where trying to accomplish, but please remember that many applications use the data and your edits are live once you upload
12017-11-03 15:17:42 UTCGlassman You ended up with two buildings on top of each other. I removed one of them
12017-11-02 02:03:22 UTCGlassman Mikes Seafood was in the wrong location. I merged it with the existing node to include the new information you added.
12017-11-01 03:19:39 UTCGlassman I think you wanted to just add a node, since the business doesn't occupy the entire building. I deleted the duplicate building and moved the tags to a new node. I did change the building to a commercial building.
12017-10-31 00:39:21 UTCGlassman I just read about the new tree house meeting place. Thanks for adding it.
22017-10-31 16:11:23 UTCTom Resing Thanks, @glassman! I was a little unsure about this, as the satellite imagery doesn't pick it up yet. That is the approximate location of the most prominent platform. There is another one built on the other side of the path and another in progress.
12017-10-30 19:13:10 UTCdatamongers Old faithful has a variable interval, it tends to be either 65 or 91 minutes, depending on the duration of the previous eruption. This change isn't wrong, but it's also not strictly right. But i don't think we really have the tagging semantics for the correct value.
22017-10-31 00:16:13 UTCGlassman I changed the interval based on what I read in the visitors center. In reality, the interval does very so I was surprised that it was in OSM. In my younger days the timing varied only a few minutes, but now it's within a 20 minutes window. My guess is it will have more variation as time goes on, at ...
12017-10-29 04:50:54 UTCGlassman I removed the bar you added to the oil facility pier in Anacortes. Please only add items that can be verified.
12017-10-28 21:43:53 UTCGlassman Does the park have a name?
12017-10-28 21:41:46 UTCGlassman I connected the south end of the trail to the road to allow for full routing.
12017-10-27 21:32:12 UTCGlassman I fixed the opening hours. OSM has a complicated format. We are waiting for the developers to add a tool to the editor.
12017-10-27 13:23:17 UTCGlassman Welcome - One recommendation - Use full spelling of street names. We do not use abbreviations in OSM. Software can easily abbreviate, but has a hard time un-abbreviating.
22017-10-27 13:26:12 UTCGlassman Actually I see you the name field for the address. The name field should only be used for the actual name of the building. I fixed yours and the houses just to the north of your edit.
12017-10-26 22:31:02 UTCGlassman Do you know if there is a bridge over Lyon Creek on the path?
12017-10-26 01:29:18 UTCGlassman You added a crossing which doesn't connect to anything. You may want to revisit this street.
12017-10-26 01:28:07 UTCGlassman That's a slow speed limit!
12017-10-19 21:04:27 UTCGlassman I tried to correct your edits. It looks like you copied in some shapefiles into OSM. We recommend you don't, until you are more comfortable with the project and have read and followed the import guidelines. Feel free to make changes to my edits. That's what OSM is all about.
12017-10-19 16:36:49 UTCuser_5359 Welcome to OSM! You forgot to add any information to your line.
22017-10-19 20:38:45 UTCGlassman As user_5359 said, you need to tag each object for their purpose, for example, amenity=parking. Once you select the object, use the search key on the left side to find the tags. Without those tags, the features will not render.
12017-10-19 00:23:27 UTCGlassman nice buildings
12017-10-18 21:43:03 UTCGlassman if you select the outline, hit "s" the outline will be squared - an look much nicer. I went ahead and did it.
12017-10-12 16:01:17 UTCGlassman Does the park have a name?
22017-10-17 01:47:24 UTCMosesKarada No, sir. It does not.
32017-10-17 12:57:17 UTCGlassman The county assessors office shows it's owned by PARKER ESTATES HOMEOWNERS ASSOCIATION. BTW - I'm impressed that the number of trails the city has.
12017-10-12 21:46:22 UTCGlassman Does the bar have a name?
22017-10-13 20:55:49 UTCBiblio Morgan It's called The Bull Head. I couldn't remember at the time, as this was a recent change. It was the Saddle Inn since before I was born.
32017-10-14 05:17:59 UTCGlassman thanks for adding the name!
12017-10-12 15:56:14 UTCGlassman I fixed the opening hours tag. Time is base on 24hr clock. Days are only two characters, eg. mo, tu, etc.
12017-10-07 05:48:18 UTCGlassman one small tip - we don't abbr. street names as software has a hard time unabbreviating names.
12017-10-07 05:45:18 UTCGlassman The library needs a tag, amenity=library so it is properly categorized. Also - even though the imagery is poor, try to capture the building foot print a best a possible and then square the outline when done. Makes it look much better when rendered.
12017-10-06 19:58:00 UTCGlassman I noticed that the house address is different than the street. According to King County records, it should match your house so I updated the street names - Feel free to correct if KC is wrong. Also changed the name of the street across from 245th Pl NE to Northeast 1st Court.
12017-10-06 16:12:23 UTCGlassman Street names should be expanded since abbreviated names are hard to un-abbreviate. Also I added a tag amenity=dentist to describe the building.
22017-10-07 10:55:34 UTCuser_5359 Welcome to OSM! For better description of your business please read http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:healthcare and http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Proposed_features/Healthcare_2.0 .
12017-10-06 00:18:36 UTCGlassman We spell out street name fully instead of leaving them abbr. Software has a hard time abbreviating names so we don't use abbreviated street name. Also - you might want to add a tag to describe the business, such as office=marketing or even office=seo. see https://taginfo.openstreetmap.org/keys/offic...
12017-10-05 14:45:17 UTCGlassman I tried to fix your edits - removed the duplicate building, corrected some and removed other non standard tags. Please read and follow the http://wiki.openstreetmap.org when adding to OSM.
12017-10-04 01:51:26 UTCGlassman The address should go on the point - I added it.
12017-10-03 22:48:25 UTCGlassman I went ahead and changed the street to 120th Court Southeast. In OSM we use the full spelling since software has a hard time UN-abbreviating words.
12017-10-03 05:13:02 UTCGlassman I merged the existing node for the fire station with the new building you added.
12017-10-03 05:10:17 UTCGlassman We use the full street name in OSM, also location is in the middle of the parking lot. I correct it - but only guessed on location based on address.
12017-09-25 21:15:35 UTCGlassman Wow - is that actually their name, (mend)bicycles? That's a great name.
12017-09-24 19:52:06 UTCGlassman Try not to draw the building over the path, unless there is an overhang. That can confuse routers. It looks like someone used a different imagery to add the paths, you used Bing which may have an offset.
12017-09-22 18:01:09 UTCGlassman I was looking at the tags I thought the "new user" had added and was impressed until I saw that you were the one that added them. Thanks - and nice job. Too bad we can't get eGumball to edit properly.
12017-09-22 01:27:17 UTCGlassman Does the car wash have a name?
12017-09-22 01:22:56 UTCGlassman Can you give a tag that describes the Camano Island Cattle Company? Just a name is kind of lonely. Is it a restaurant, amenity=restaurant? Let me know if you need help figuring out what tag to add.
12017-09-21 23:16:10 UTCGlassman We don't use descriptive names. It's okay to add a note tag with descriptive info. Can you Fix the two speed signs you added?
12017-09-20 23:29:47 UTCGlassman Does the Ghost Note Coffee actually charge a fee for internet access?
12017-09-20 13:22:38 UTCGlassman I fixed the address, it should be addr:unit=A and added a tag, office=mortgage to describe the type of business. Feel free to correct if I guessed wrong. See https://taginfo.openstreetmap.org/keys/office#values for all possible values being used for office.
12017-09-18 22:20:24 UTCGlassman RV parks are tagged as tourism=caravan_site. OSM started in the UK so we use British English. I went ahead and changed the node. I also placed it over one of the buildings, but not sure which one is the office.
12017-09-15 05:15:17 UTCGlassman I think you want to tag it as leisure=swimming_pool. See https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:leisure%3Dswimming_pool for more details on tagging pools.
12017-09-12 22:37:41 UTCGlassman The best way to change a street classification is to cut (right click on a node) at both ends of the section you want to modify. Then change that section to track. Otherwise you end up with a track on top of a residential road. I fixed it as best as I can. I'm not knowledgeable in your area.
12017-09-12 01:35:01 UTCGlassman I had to remove some empty building nodes and fix a bunch of duplicate buildings on project 121. Please run the validator when you are done to make the the buildings you add don't have a problem.

Also when you have multipolygons buildings to copy. The easiest way is to double click on the new bu...
22017-09-12 13:06:47 UTCebrelsford Thanks for letting me know, I'm really sorry about that! I was running the validator but I must have missed some here.
12017-09-07 17:19:15 UTCGlassman Do you know if there is a skyway between the two buildings? there appears to be one on the imagery.
12017-09-06 20:45:22 UTCGlassman It's okay to remove the node if the business is gone. It can easily be added when a new place opens.
22017-09-06 22:36:43 UTCseattlefyi Thanks for the info BBTM! I'd like to add it's really important to just remove the tags specifically related to the business (name, type, website, etc.) rather than the entire node. That way we don't lose address info, which should still be correct. The tags can be found in the "All Tags" ...
32017-09-06 23:05:16 UTCBBTM Thanks for the feedback. I've spoken to the business owner and they still own the lease on the space. They are looking at their options and they hope they'll be able to sublease to another food business. As their Pizza sign is still on the building I decided against changing anything, just warning p...
12017-09-06 02:05:50 UTCGlassman We do not enter personal information into osm. Please only add features that can be verified.
12017-09-05 02:29:41 UTCGlassman I dont see a sidewalk along Beechwood Street. Is it actually there?
12017-09-05 02:25:51 UTCGlassman We don't name sidewalks unless they are named - unlikely.
12017-09-04 05:46:29 UTCGlassman I changed the gate from being tagged on the length of the street to a node on the street - from what appears to be a gate on imagery. Both for 58th Avenue South and South 322th Place. Please move the node if its in the wrong spot
12017-09-04 05:35:50 UTCGlassman Street names are tag with the full spelling in OSM to avoid confusion. I went ahead and fixed it.
12017-09-03 05:13:51 UTCGlassman The place=hamlet should probably be a separate node from the camp grounds.
22017-09-03 06:11:57 UTCMark Jones Maybe so. The camp has several families as permanent residents, so I was following guidance here: http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/United_States_admin_level.
32017-09-03 06:17:07 UTCMark Jones A related question: is tourism=camp_site correct? This is a closer representation: https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:leisure%3Dsummer_camp
12017-09-02 21:30:18 UTCGlassman The barrier you added implies a fence or similar object. Is there really a fence around this whole area or did you want to describe some sort of landuse?
12017-09-02 21:26:22 UTCGlassman I see you made 30 more edits - way to go. Did you get the stream direction fixed? If you didn't, using iD, select the stream, then right click to bring up a menu of options, one is to reverse. This works for streams as well as one way streets.
12017-08-29 22:13:49 UTCGlassman I think you want the tag shop=cannabis. Also, use the format in the iD editor for the address. If there is a unit number, add the tag addr:unit - Let me know if you need help.
12017-08-28 13:44:33 UTCGlassman The poi already exists
12017-08-23 07:39:53 UTCGerdP Hi!
Please review typo highway="Mule Deer Lane":
https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/13910599
22017-08-23 14:36:54 UTCGlassman I'm not seeing the typo. Can you point it out? Mule Deer Lane is what the county has in its records.
32017-08-23 14:41:25 UTCGerdP So I guess you meant name=* instead of highway=*
42017-08-23 16:22:24 UTCGlassman Thanks - I missed that. Everything value looked right - its fixed now
12017-08-22 20:42:58 UTCGlassman Is this the company Bio+D or Bio & D? with the website http://www.bainbridgeoutfitters.com/
12017-08-22 00:16:46 UTCGlassman Would it be better to create a landuse around the course instead of naming each trail? And is it a private course?
22017-08-22 23:00:34 UTCCascade Cross It is open to the public for several events hosted by different promoters (mud runs, 5K winter runs, etc.). There is only one trail that has been under development for four years. Not unlike mountain bike trails on Galbraith.
12017-08-17 21:43:36 UTCGlassman I deleted the city addition, but did add in new boundaries from country records. Boundaries are difficult - the iD editor is not well suited to edit them as well. JOSM is a better choice.
12017-08-16 13:41:12 UTCGlassman Two suggestions - first it's easier to map with a mouse and second, if you screw something up it's often easier to use the undo than trying to fix it.
12017-08-15 05:28:42 UTCGlassman OSM is for features that can be verified. Please do not vandalize.
12017-08-13 14:31:25 UTCGlassman I'm going to merge the your node with the existing building with same name
12017-08-11 20:13:49 UTCGlassman The airport already exists at this location. I'm going to remove your node.
12017-08-08 20:14:28 UTCGlassman The Target Store is already mapped.
12017-08-05 05:27:41 UTCGlassman I added a path from one of your sidewalks to connect it to the street. This allows routing of pedestrians, cyclists and cars. I'm not familiar with the park so I couldn't the other sidewalks to the street.

Check out the wiki, https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:highway%3Dpath to see if your ...
12017-08-05 02:17:58 UTCGlassman you added a business to a residential address - with open hours. The website doesn't list this location.
12017-08-03 15:24:39 UTCGlassman We don't put address information on streets. Either use a node (point) or a building outline
12017-08-02 05:09:08 UTCGlassman We use un-abbreviated street names in OSM. Basically because software can easily abbreviate a name, but has a hard time un-abbreviating the name.
12017-08-01 15:06:28 UTCGlassman Lynchpin doesn't seem to fit the hospital tag. It sounds more like a amenity=community_centre. Check out https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:community_centre for help in tagging the type of community centre (we use british spelling since OSM was founded in the UK by Steve Coast)
12017-07-30 14:05:04 UTCGlassman I tightened up the your building outline to the building and merged the apartment node with the building outline. You might have be intending to outline the property the Broadmoor sits on. If that's the case, you can use landuse=residential.
22017-07-31 19:43:33 UTCCarolus Rex Thanks. I'm still learning the ropes.
12017-07-29 05:33:52 UTCGlassman Your edit was deleted. If you need help with OSM editing let me know.
12017-07-26 01:43:00 UTCGlassman We try not to use descriptive names for objects. Use the appropriate tags instead. For private driveway use highway=service, service=driveway, access=private.
22017-07-26 15:48:53 UTCseattlefyi Thanks for making the correction! Hope to see more edits (also, hope you successfully got your pokemon!).
12017-07-19 16:16:40 UTCGlassman Adding an empty node doesn't do much and will most likely be deleted. It might be better to place a note at the future location of the costco site.
12017-07-18 23:19:21 UTCGlassman Why would Northwest Forest Home Road be limited to destination only since it can be used as a through street?
22017-07-18 23:22:35 UTCLindyT I'm obviously new at this, but constructive criticism is welcome. What should I change it to next time?
32017-07-18 23:28:17 UTCGlassman designated is really only for private roads that have posted signs to only allow residents and delivers. See the wiki, https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:access for a better description. If the road is for destination only then the tag is appropriate. My thoughts from looking at it were that 1)...
12017-07-11 15:13:53 UTCGlassman nice
12017-07-09 00:13:29 UTCGlassman I tried to get confirmation from Camp Korey but they never replied. Glad to see that someone is knowledgeable in the area.
12017-07-04 05:09:41 UTCGlassman I added layer=-1 to the culvert. That keeps it below the street level.
12017-07-01 01:40:12 UTCGlassman Nick - can you look at the footways around allen library? two seem seem to run through the building diagonally joining at a node on the building, next to the hub wall. Was that your edit?
22017-07-01 16:45:24 UTCNickBolten Looks like that came from changeset 49952040 (not mine). It consisted nearly entirely of changes like that (way nodes in the wrong positions), so I reverted those.
32017-07-01 18:07:31 UTCGlassman thanks for reverting - I wasn't sure which changeset caused the problem but figured you know the sidewalks better than me. Have a great holiday weekend.
42017-07-01 18:47:20 UTCNickBolten you too!
12017-07-01 01:41:31 UTCGlassman I removed the meadow - only features that can be verified on the ground should be added.
12017-06-29 23:27:10 UTCGlassman I
22017-06-29 23:29:33 UTCGlassman I removed the address tags and other business tags from the service road. Those features should either be a node at the entrance to the building or on a building outline. Let me know if you need help.
12017-06-28 23:53:24 UTCGlassman There is no hotel on this street. I removed the node.
12017-06-23 15:52:26 UTCAlan Hi there, thanks for editing OpenStreetMap! Those lines are part of "relations" which describe the boundary of Kailua. So the lines themselves do not need the administrative tag. I know that relations are a fairly advanced topic in OSM, so it's understandable that it's not immediately obvi...
22017-06-23 17:38:29 UTCAnthony Chang By Pokemon spawning issue, I mean trying to get them to spawn in Kailua. Kailua's been a dead zone (nothing spawning at all) for approximately 6-7 months now. I know Niantic (Pokemon Go's maker) uses OpenStreetMap data, so I'm trying to figure out what changed about Kailua.

Recently, we had a Po...
32017-06-25 05:46:56 UTCGlassman Anthony - check out https://blog.openstreetmap.org/2016/12/30/tips-pokemon-go/ for some tips on editing for Pokemon.
42017-06-25 05:59:21 UTCGlassman It looks like a new user, Monster Squad removed the tag boundary=administrative on April 18th. The changeset note wasn't descriptive enough to figure out what they were trying to accomplish. It looks good now.
12017-06-24 23:43:34 UTCGlassman For future changes to existing tags, you might just correct the existing feature. By updating the feature the history is saved. Of course if it's really screwed up, deleting is ok too.
12017-06-20 23:20:58 UTCGlassman This should be a node instead of a polygon. The area the polygon covers looks like it include multiple addresses. Do you need help fixing?
22017-06-21 04:00:08 UTCSlPitts Thank you for the offer of assistance, I've updated the entry.
12017-06-20 21:52:23 UTCGlassman Nice first edits. We don't give descriptive names to buildings. The tag should suffice. You might also want to square the buildings by right clicking on the object then select the square icon.
12017-06-18 01:57:35 UTCGlassman I corrected the street names that end in Rd. OSM spells out street names since computers have a hard time un-abbreviating names. (I live in Mount Vernon, an old GPS kept saying Mountain Vernon.) Good work on your updates. We need more loving care in Okanogan County.
22017-06-18 22:22:58 UTCnrotstan Thanks for the help and warm welcome!
12017-06-16 04:59:48 UTCGlassman The OSM convention is to use the full street name, ie no abbreviations. I went ahead and fixed the. Great additions!
12017-06-13 16:09:12 UTCGlassman No tag describing the feature -address improperly formatted. Probably added by a bot.
22017-06-13 16:14:10 UTCGlassman corrected above and changed Hours into opening_hours and fixed opening_hours formating
12017-06-13 15:24:36 UTCGlassman Tracing trees in Padilla Bay - you had me worried until I saw the trees were actually on land.

Nice
12017-06-12 23:43:41 UTCGlassman I can find no trace of any shoreline path on the most recent imagery. Your path even crosses streams with no bridges. There are unmapped ways, either tracks or paths that could be mapped.

Please either provide some news article, gps traces or aerial imagery to support the shoreline path.
12017-06-10 13:14:48 UTCGlassman there isn't any indication of a path along the shoreline. Please confirm that the path exists.
22017-06-12 15:36:16 UTCGlassman No response from you so I deleted the path.
12017-06-09 23:58:40 UTCGlassman The bridge tag should only be over the actual bridge. I fixed it.

I can't tell from the image, but the footpath should ideally be connect to another footpath or a road to allow routing. It would be nice if you could connect the footpath to the street.
12017-06-09 23:52:10 UTCGlassman The area around the playground is most likely a park. I made the change.
12017-06-09 04:47:51 UTCGlassman I connected your footway to the streets to allow for complete routing.
12017-06-06 22:23:18 UTCGlassman There was already an Ashley's Furniture store. I merged your node with the existing building polygon.
12017-06-05 23:47:11 UTCGlassman Can I assist you with getting the best tag to describe the business? Using amenity=Portable Toilet Supplier;Trailer Rental Service;Construction Equipment Supplier;Fence Contractor isn't doing any good.

The normal keys for businesses are amenity, shop, craft, and office. Values should be lowercas...
12017-06-03 14:36:23 UTCGlassman Can you add a tag to describe the type of business United Site Services provides? office=?
12017-06-01 20:38:12 UTCGlassman Can you tell me what was wrong with the farmland multipolygon?
22017-06-02 03:46:23 UTCemem Clifford,
the farmland was drawn with two closed ways that had a number of common segments in between them and were combined in a multipolygon. The OSM area checker flagged these, as such polygons are not rendered at all in some software (mostly openGL based ones).
12017-05-30 22:04:37 UTCGlassman You might want to add a tag to describe the business, for example office=marketing. There is a full list of tags at https://taginfo.openstreetmap.org/keys/office
22017-05-30 22:25:47 UTCodddogmedia Thanks @glassman, we made that update along with a few others.
12017-05-26 02:54:37 UTCGlassman It looks like you created a node for the lake as an attraction. The lakes are existing, I'm not sure the nodes are appropriate. Can you explain what you are trying to accomplish?
12017-05-24 11:46:31 UTCGlassman Street names in OSM are always spelled out. (Software has a hard time un-abbreviating) I made the correction.
12017-05-23 23:39:17 UTCGlassman FYI - We don't use abbreviated street names. I went ahead and changed it.
12017-05-22 14:13:13 UTCGlassman Please read the wiki on how to tag features. watertowers are not natural features - they are man_made.
22017-05-22 18:47:49 UTCcknight Thank you for your help. I hope the Portland Community is a bit more welcoming though.
32017-05-22 22:09:19 UTCGlassman The Portland group is really friendly. Please understand that my goal is to help new users but also protect OSM. OSM is easy to edit but can also be abused. We've had a number of new editors add features in attempt to "game" Pokemon. When I see a water feature for example, I get concerned.
12017-05-22 21:59:09 UTCGlassman Watermaster park looks like a residential home. can you provide some documentation that this is an official park?
12017-05-21 20:13:27 UTCGlassman I think you may want building=yes, amenity=community_centre instead of building=Community
22017-05-21 20:14:02 UTCGlassman See https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:amenity%3Dcommunity_centre for more information on the community centre tag
12017-05-17 13:09:02 UTCGlassman I added shop=cannabis to your edit to help search engines find the business.
12017-05-16 13:12:16 UTCGlassman I noticed some untagged ways. See http://tools.geofabrik.de/osmi/ tagging to pull up the ways.
12017-05-11 19:43:03 UTCGlassman This is most likely just grass in front of a social club. It has been changed to grass. Please only add features that can be verified.
12017-05-11 19:00:49 UTCGlassman I noticed you deleted a number of the new users edits. Pokemon vandalism? Did you send a PM asking them not to vandalise OSM?
22017-05-12 15:09:28 UTCyurasi Hi Glassman
Good day
Thanks for your advice. That user only had one edition, for this reason I didn't prefer send a message.
But, If I will find more editions of this user I will left him a message.
Greetings.
12017-05-11 01:54:39 UTCGlassman I removed the many polygon parks you created. It does appear that there is a park at the location, but the number of parks you created all which overlapped each other, isn't suitable for OSM. Please carefully draw in the boundaries using the imagery.
12017-05-09 10:58:24 UTCGlassman I think you want landuse=residential. building=yes should just be the building outline. If you need help let me know.
12017-05-09 10:58:17 UTCGlassman I think you want landuse=residential. building=yes should just be the building outline. If you need help let me know.
12017-04-28 15:42:23 UTCGlassman You might want to add a tag to FoodLifeLine to describe the business. For example, office=ngo or office=charity. Check wiki.openstreetmap.org for help finding the correct tag
12017-04-27 15:31:08 UTCGlassman I added a tag to describe the business, healthcare=acupuncture. Also unabbreviated the street name and added add:unit for the unit number.
12017-04-27 05:27:36 UTCGlassman landuse=forest is for timber harvesting areas. If it just a wood area, then natural=wood
12017-04-27 05:24:22 UTCGlassman Check out https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:barrier for adding a barrier= with an access=emergency. Just add a node in the way where the barrier that prevents through traffic. You can also asdd foot=yes, cycle=yes.
12017-04-27 05:17:09 UTCGlassman You might be interested in the OpenSidewalk.com initiative being lead by UW. Rather than add sidewalks as tags to the street, sidewalks ar being mapped as separate ways. This allows for better pedestrial routing. Join our meetup if you would like to participate. I'll send a message with an invite.
12017-04-24 13:11:09 UTCAlan Hello! Thanks for contributing to OpenStreetMap!
You probably want to add at least one more tag to that node, so that OSM knows what type of feature it is. Maybe shop=something? https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:shop
22017-04-24 17:20:08 UTCGlassman this looks like eGumbal.com doings. They never have answered a message as far as I know. I sent a message to the email address in on the node, suggestion that they contact their vendor to fix.
12017-04-24 02:20:15 UTCGlassman Please only add features that can be verified. The footpaths don't belong in OSM when they cross a building.

Do you have some verification that the park you added is not just some green space? Is it listed in the city's directory of parks?
22018-03-04 06:49:31 UTCJaku103 I was just looking at that park wondering if it is really there. I'll get out there and verify it soon. It is posible this city is known for parks and trails. With lots of little parks all over the place.
12017-04-23 22:04:08 UTCGlassman I went ahead and deleted this random untagged way. Remember, when you save and upload an edit, it goes live. If you want to practice editing, take the iD walk through on your browser. http://learnosm.org also has good articles on how to edit OSM.

If you have any questions, just ask.
12017-04-23 16:28:50 UTCGlassman These are most likely service roads. unclassified are official streets that serve non-residential areas. I went ahead and changed them. If I'm wrong, feel free to correct them. Also, I noticed a number of poorly aligned roads as well as service roads tagged as residential. These was from an import o...
12017-04-22 20:14:19 UTCGlassman You are created self intersecting polygons when adding in landuse=forest. If you have a section of a polygon that should be excluded, draw the larger area, then draw another area covering the area to be excluded. Then selection both areas click the "+" to create a multiplygon. The excluded...
22017-04-23 09:51:04 UTCGrauer Elefant Thank you for fixing this problem! Now I have understood the multipolygon-system and already used it in more recent edits in this area.
32017-04-23 14:58:17 UTCGlassman Thanks for filling in these area. If you are interested, I found these errors using http://tools.geofabrik.de/osmi/ The site also has some other useful tools like map compare. http://tools.geofabrik.de/mc/

I hope you can attend one of our future meetups.
42017-04-23 16:11:44 UTCGrauer Elefant Thanks for your invitation! Right now I'm writiting to you all the way from Germany, but I'm probably going to be in WA from September to December '17. So maybe I could attend one of your Seattle-meetups then :-)
12017-04-23 01:37:06 UTCGlassman When adding street names, we use the full spelling, no abbreviations. The reason is that software has a hard time un-abbreviating. I updated your edits.
12017-04-19 00:00:48 UTCGlassman The park is already mapped in OSM. Please don't vandalize the work of others.
12017-04-18 23:54:59 UTCGlassman the tag amenity=school isn't needed on artwork already inside of the school boundary. I removed the tag.
12017-04-18 20:50:29 UTCGlassman Thanks for updating the bridge.
One minor issue - We use full street names. Abbreviated names are hard for software to un-abbreviate. I went ahead and made the correction.
12017-04-12 21:18:35 UTCGlassman It appears you added a new park on top of the existing park. You only needed to adjust the boundaries of the existing park. According to Renton city records, there is actually two different named parks here. I fixed both.
22017-04-17 04:16:18 UTCgoofyspouse TY for fixing my newbie mistake. I was attempting to adjust the boundary rather than create anything new, but I clearly failed.
32017-04-18 04:57:21 UTCGlassman No problem - Glad to see you contributing
12017-04-18 01:53:38 UTCGlassman Your building covered the parking lot - I think you intended landuse. I corrected it and added in the building.
22017-04-18 02:50:36 UTCSpydie Thank you. I appreciate your help.
12017-04-17 14:56:57 UTCGlassman Glad to see someone using the StreetComplete app. I think you are the first the in area. Congratulations.
12017-04-17 05:08:58 UTCGlassman For just practicing - nice start. Just remember, as soon as you upload, your edits are live to the world.
12017-04-16 22:24:03 UTCGlassman Looks like you created some self intersecting ways when adding the fence. I tried to correct, but you might want to look over my edit.
12017-04-16 22:13:26 UTCGlassman Please only add features that can be verified. I removed the parks and water features you added. I left all of your good edits.
22017-04-17 07:39:33 UTCCarnildo Unless I missed something, there weren't any good edits. The two surviving changes (which I reverted) were to turn Hallmark Apartments from "landuse=residential" to "natural=residential", and turn Walla Walla University into a park.
12017-04-16 22:05:43 UTCGlassman Don't forget to use the square tool to fix buildings and other features that should be square. Just select the outline and right click to get a menu of option.
12017-04-16 15:31:32 UTCGlassman This isn't a named meadow. Just some grass between residential areas. Please only add features that can be verified.
12017-04-16 15:30:40 UTCGlassman The common area around apartments isn't classified as a park. At best it is a common area. I made the change.
12017-04-15 01:48:55 UTCGlassman Welcome to OSM - marking roads as private indicates that it is posted to allow only owners and others that are individually invited. If it's just a privately maintained road that anyone can use, you can add the tag operator=
22017-04-15 06:56:10 UTCCarnildo This one's an odd case: the county has the name as "Highland *Drive*", which would imply a public road ("Lane" denotes a privately-owned road), but the parcel map doesn't have a right-of-way for it, instead showing it as running on private property. I don't recall a street sign ...
32017-04-15 18:46:10 UTCMike Chamberlain The roads in question "belong" to our little community of 37 homes -- The Highlands Homeowners Association of Spokane. The history is a little complicated; details can be found here: https://highlandsha.wixsite.com/highlandsha/history.

42017-04-16 00:16:50 UTCGlassman The SCOUT parcel information probably comes from the assessor's office while the basemap imagery with labels is from their gis data. Parcel data is strange. Skagit County has a road data layer that is made from parcels information. In places it is off by many feet.

Keep up the great work updatin...
12017-04-15 23:32:00 UTCGlassman Nice - I connected the paths to the nearby streets to allow routing software to include the paths.
12017-04-15 14:12:04 UTCGlassman It looks like you added a park inside of the existing Luke McRedmond Landing park. I removed it.
22017-04-15 14:38:10 UTCRossAlGhul Thanks, I didn't see the larger park area, I'll be more careful in the future.
32017-04-15 14:50:16 UTCGlassman No problem - Map is constantly being improved. Thanks for your changes.
12017-04-14 20:33:43 UTCGlassman Thanks for adding the parking lot. As a suggestion for the some more edits, the building needs and address and name if it has one.
22017-04-14 20:36:32 UTCtrowhite Thank you for commenting on this edit! I will add an address. But it is a commercial building with several companies, so I'm not sure what name would be associated with the building (maybe I'll skip that attribute).
32017-04-14 20:45:40 UTCGlassman Skipping the name is appropriate in this case with many offices in the building. Enjoy mapping!
12017-04-14 20:40:06 UTCGlassman Looks like line was used instead of area when creating the house. If you didn't go through the walk through, I would suggest doing so. It only takes 10 minutes or so.

I went ahead and fixed it using a different editor, JOSM, that can easily add any kind of tag to a feature.
12017-04-14 01:54:03 UTCGlassman Some of these roads might actually be driveways. They can be tagged highway=service and service=driveway. Just search driveway in iD and it will add the correct tags. Since I don't live on Fox Island, I'll let you be the judge of what is correct.
12017-04-13 21:57:35 UTCGlassman Please only add features that can be verified. I removed the park.
12017-04-12 21:20:02 UTCGlassman You can look at the USGS hydrology(sp?) for information on where the creek runs. I did add culverts where the stream runs under streets. Otherwise it would appear that the road runs right through the stream.
22017-04-17 03:45:57 UTCgoofyspouse TY for the culvert assistance. I couldn't figure out how to get it to do that. Also, thanks for the USGS tip. Unfortunately, it shows the creek coming in from the west and then heading south. It definitely comes in from the east by the elementary school, so I have no idea what source they were w...
12017-04-10 02:44:56 UTCGlassman I added the building back. Did you remove it on purpose?
22017-04-10 14:12:58 UTCopelta178 No, I didn't mean to remove the building. Sorry new to editing.
12017-04-10 02:37:14 UTCGlassman Can you add a tag to describe europe express 's business? like shop=fashion. That way the node will render.
22017-04-10 14:31:03 UTCopelta178 Yes, thanks for the help!
