Changeset No. Date Contributor Comment
12017-03-24 19:59:13 UTCGlassman I changed your street names into unabbreviated names. OSM only uses unabbreviated names. The reason is software can easily abbreviate a name but has a hard time doing the reverse.

New imagery has been promised in the next few weeks that might allow the new homes and streets to be visible. It is ...
12017-03-23 22:37:29 UTCGlassman I modified your path to match latest imagery. Try using Mapbox imagery. (New imagery from another provider should be showing up in the next few weeks.) Also, the connection to SW Old Clifton Rd was duplicated. That really messes with routing software.
12017-03-21 14:16:50 UTCGlassman I connected the footway to the two streets to allow routing software to use the path.
12017-03-20 22:45:48 UTCGlassman If you want to step up your editing skills, square the building when you have it drawn. Just select the building and use the square icon.
12017-03-20 22:40:46 UTCGlassman You might want to remember to change the commit message each time you save and upload. Although I forget all the time but it really helps others if you try to remember.
12017-03-20 14:33:32 UTCGlassman Thanks for the great contribution - especially adding in the boundaries for Centennial Park. Normally people just draw rough boundaries - but it looks like you took the trouble to get the actual boundaries from the city. Thanks!!
12017-03-19 14:38:57 UTCGlassman Thanks for adding addresses.
12017-03-19 00:20:29 UTCGlassman Nice additions to airfield - a better description of the change other than fix would have been nice, but I don't want to complain to much for all of your improvements. Thanks
12017-03-18 21:52:03 UTCGlassman We don't use descriptive names for objects, like the stormwater pond and houses. You just need to tag them as building=house or building=residential. I went ahead and corrected them.
12017-03-18 21:49:54 UTCGlassman This is actually a landuse=basin; basin=detention. I went ahead and corrected it.
12017-03-17 21:17:42 UTCAlan Great! You could also trace the area of the park, instead of just adding a node. I can almost see how far it goes by looking at the satellite imagery, but you might have a better idea with on-the-ground knowledge.
22017-03-17 21:54:47 UTCGlassman According to King County, the trail is part of the Villa Real HOA. The wooded area is undeveloped housing tracks. The actual area of park like is just the area around the two trails. Let me know if you need help adding in the landuse area.
32017-03-17 22:10:53 UTCToblakai I added an area, let me know if it looks good.
42017-03-17 23:10:01 UTCGlassman Great. I did unconnect the landuse residential from the park and made the park an inner polygon as part of the residential multiploygon. I figured that the HOA owns the trail so it should be park of the residential landuse. Thanks for replying to the messages!
12017-03-17 05:47:57 UTCGlassman I reverted your addition since it changed the building to water and distorted two of the adjacent buildings. To add the pool, just outline the actual pool and tagged it leisure=swimming_pool and most likely access=private. The area wouldn't be tagged as a park, possibly landuse=recreation_area.
12017-03-17 05:34:55 UTCGlassman is "No name" the actual name or just that there is no name on the feature?
12017-03-14 14:37:03 UTCGlassman I added office=it to your first edit. This will help search engines determine what type of business is at that node as well as have it rendered on the map. Although I don't thing we are currently rendering office=it. If I pick the wrong tag, feel free to correct.
12017-03-13 21:53:34 UTCGlassman I merged your park node with the park polygon. no need for both.
12017-03-13 05:19:57 UTCGlassman I reverted this changeset which added a tunnel to I90 across the entire state.
12017-03-13 02:06:27 UTCGlassman There is no park at that location. Please only add features that can be verified. Since it was a wooded area, I changed it to natural=wood.
12017-03-12 21:24:10 UTCGlassman Welcome to OSM. Please only add features that can be verified - Please don't change the woods into a park if it isn't a park or a swamp.

For parking lot areas we use highway=service with service=parking_aisle when its a parking aisle. Also, don't add roads on top of existing roads. Otherwise rou...
12017-03-12 00:27:46 UTCGlassman Please don't add features that can't be verified. I've removed what seems to be improper changes and additions. I also changed two of your tags. Playgrounds should be tagged leisure=playground. Trailheads are highway=trailhead
12017-03-11 19:11:36 UTCGlassman reverted - not real features
12017-03-11 19:11:20 UTCGlassman reverted - not real features
12017-03-10 20:42:57 UTCGlassman I revised the church to just cover the building structure and added parking and service roads.
12017-03-10 06:15:02 UTCGlassman Please do not vandalize OSM. Only features that can be verified should be added.
12017-03-10 00:40:05 UTCGlassman Welcome to OSM. You need to tag your ways so it will render. I went ahead and added the tag as well as connect it to 184th Avenue Court East.
12017-03-10 00:39:04 UTCGlassman According to Pierce County this is called Viking Park. I did modify the share to match the counties records.
12017-03-09 20:13:56 UTCGlassman Welcome to OSM. We use full street names in OSM. SE May Creek Park Drive should be Southeast May Creek Park Drive. The reason is that software can easily abbreviate a word be has a harder time un-abbreviating a word. Can you correct these?
12017-03-05 22:36:37 UTCGlassman Can you provide some documentation that they are official parks? According to the City's park Department, http://www.cityofml.com/DocumentCenter/View/2493 your additions are not parks.
22017-03-06 22:21:31 UTCGlassman Since I didn't hear back from you I removed two of the parks. The third that is furthest south looks like it could be a park but isn't show on the city's park list. I did add in Golden Gate Park using the city's records.
12017-03-03 06:17:19 UTCGlassman The house and node shouldn't be tagged as a park. I changed the structure to building=yes and the node to office=ngo.
12017-03-02 01:32:05 UTCGlassman Welcome to OSM. Please only add features that can be verified. Temporary features, like a parked car, should not be added. Check out http://learnosm.org and wiki.openstreetmap.org for more information.
12017-03-02 01:16:00 UTCGlassman Welcome to OSM. Check out http://learnosm.org for help with editing and join us on our Slack Channel, https://osmus-slack.herokuapp.com/
12017-03-02 01:13:08 UTCGlassman Welcome to OSM. Check out http://learnosm.org for editing help. And join us on our Slack Channel, https://osmus-slack.herokuapp.com/
12017-03-02 00:57:54 UTCGlassman Welcome to OSM. Please only add features that can be verified on the ground. Check out our wiki, http://wiki.openstreetmap.org or http://learnosm.org for more help.
12017-02-24 20:53:59 UTCGlassman Please only add features that can be verified.
12017-02-23 00:58:57 UTCAlan Did you buy any eggs at the Egg Shack?
22017-02-23 04:13:54 UTCGlassman I didn't, insteaded opted to let another person buy the last two dozen eggs. The egg shack also sells glass art by two bellingham glass art by Elena and Ed Schmidt.

BTW they have something like 59 chickens on the property. They had 60 but a coyote got one the night before.
12017-02-19 03:33:15 UTCGlassman I removed the water slide from bear track landing waterpark. To add this correctly would involve adding layers so one section of the tracks could render on top of others. It would take onsite visit to figure out. It came up in a Maproulette challenge to fix self intersecting buildings.
12017-02-19 00:45:49 UTCGlassman The tag on Garlic Jim's disused:amenity=restaurant - does that mean it is no longer a restaurant? I see someone updated the name today but left the same disused tag.
12017-02-19 00:23:30 UTCGlassman you might want to fix the service areas you created. It should be a way tagged highway=service;service=driveway. I modified two as an example of how they should be mapped.
12017-02-18 02:56:35 UTCGlassman Please do not vandalize the map. there are plenty of real features that can be added without adding non-existent object like lakes.
12017-02-17 03:26:27 UTCGlassman Welcome to OSM. I removed the housenumber (30) from Avenue G. What else do you need fixed?
12017-02-16 15:55:33 UTCGlassman The county has it listed as just Forest Avenue Southeast - nothing about 1st. Can you confirm that this is the correct street name?
12017-02-16 06:56:12 UTCGlassman Welcome to OSM and thanks for adding the new road. You are also in great company. There are many city and county gis professionals contributing to OSM.
12017-02-16 00:01:52 UTCGlassman Welcome to OSM. One suggestion - add a descriptive tag to help search engines find you business. I'm guessing something like office=advertising_agency. Check out the wiki at https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:office. If you add your clients to OSM, be sure to use the appropriate tag so they sho...
12017-02-15 23:56:52 UTCGlassman Welcome to OSM. One tip - when you add footpaths, connected them to nearby roads to allow routing software to work all the way to the destination. I went ahead and connected a few of the sidewalks to the service road.
12017-02-15 06:58:39 UTCGlassman This isn't the right place to test changes. We do have a dev server. Let me know if you are interested. Otherwise I suggest you check out http://learnosm.org or click on help.
12017-02-14 18:39:19 UTCGlassman Check out the wiki page,https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:leisure%3Dgolf_course, for mapping regular golf courses. No reason why you couldn't use the same features for disc golf. Probably no bunkers and greens but the rest is similar. The page even has a video on mapping golf courses.

And W...
12017-02-14 03:15:11 UTCGlassman Welcome to OSM.
OSM is not a test system. Any edits you make are live once you commit them. It would be help to know why you deleted 4 ways. Please respond. thanks
22017-02-14 06:33:45 UTCGlassman I went ahead and reverted your deletions. If you do have a need for testing OSM, we have a dedicated dev instance. Please contact me for more information.
12017-02-09 16:15:06 UTCGlassman You might consider changing some of the ways currently tagged as highway=residential to highway=track or highway=unclassified. Highway=residential should be for residential areas. Most of this area is probably either track or unclassified.
22017-02-09 16:18:52 UTCsb89 Is this something I need to do or will the changes to the tracks that I made show up eventually on the map?
32017-02-09 16:56:28 UTCGlassman Once you save/upload your edits they are live. But you may have to refresh your browser a few times before they appear.
42017-02-09 19:35:18 UTCsb89 The changes I made still aren't showing. Was there something I forgot to do?
52017-02-09 22:46:41 UTCGlassman This is what I'm seeing http://overpass-turbo.eu/s/lP6 (run the query - it's everything in Lewis County, WA that you touched)
62017-02-10 05:41:38 UTCsb89 OK, I see it there, but not on the openstreetmap yet.
72017-02-10 06:17:12 UTCGlassman The further out you, as your zoom level number goes lower, the long it takes to render. zoom 19 is immeadiate while zoom 8 may take weeks. Note that your roads wont show at zoom 12. Try opening the same area in another browser see if it's just old cache that hasn't cleared.
12017-02-10 01:44:44 UTCGlassman Nice random buildings
12017-02-09 19:30:47 UTCjharpster Hi, I was looking at boundaries in Washington and this one keeps coming up. Are state park boundaries intended to be tagged as Admin_level=4? These are normally reserved for state boundaries.
22017-02-10 00:07:59 UTCGlassman No - it should be leisure=park. But If I change it I think it will render green over the water. Let me find some other island parks to see how they are tagged.
32017-02-10 00:17:55 UTCGlassman Okay - let's see what I broke. The National Park boundary is gone and the the island now has a park polygon. Hope that fixes it.
12017-02-08 20:50:49 UTCGlassman One of the mosques you added is located in Roosevelt High School in Seattle. I'm very familiar with that area. As far as I know, Roosevelt HS has a great band, but no mosque. Where did you get this information?
12017-02-03 23:53:38 UTCGlassman I'm curious - why did you delete the Plants Northwest node?
22017-02-04 03:15:23 UTCOmnific I merged it with a landuse=farm and shop=garden_centre that I created.
32017-02-04 03:16:46 UTCOmnific See: http://www.openstreetmap.org/way/471977073
42017-02-04 03:23:46 UTCGlassman thanks - I didn't even notice the landuse area. Guess I need to zoom out occasionally.
52017-02-04 05:44:10 UTCOmnific No worries, thanks for paying attention to new changesets.
12017-02-03 16:43:51 UTCGlassman In OSM use spell out street name. Software can easily abbreviate a name but it is difficult to unabbreviate. I will correct these. And Welcome to OSM.
12017-02-03 05:17:42 UTCGlassman Welcome to OSM. For privacy reasons, we don't show who owns or who lives in a house. Please remove the owners names.
12017-02-03 05:17:29 UTCGlassman Welcome to OSM. For privacy reasons, we don't show who owns or who lives in a house. Please remove the owners names.
12017-02-01 22:01:57 UTCGlassman The correct tag for fountains is amenity=fountain. Also, the feature appears to be round. You can select the square you've added and by clicking on the round icon the square will be converted into a circle. Looks much better. Please do the same for the one in Evergreen Memorial Gardens.
12017-02-01 21:55:25 UTCGlassman NE 115th isn't a footway. I was originally tagged as highway=residential. Please change it back to a residential street. If you want to add a footway, either draw a sidewalk in beside the way or tag the street with sidewalk=left/right/both/none.
12017-02-01 06:36:47 UTCGlassman please do not vandalise OSM. You are hurting a lot of people.
22017-02-01 18:05:57 UTCpitscheplatsch reverted by https://www.openstreetmap.org/changeset/45708112

@Glassman thanks!
12017-02-01 03:30:36 UTCGlassman Again - please send a picture to convince me that this building is actually a lake.
12017-02-01 03:28:22 UTCGlassman Can you send a picture to show that this is really a square pond?
12017-01-31 22:29:12 UTCGlassman The tax records for Mason County do not show the park as on public land nor is this park listed. Please verify that this is actually a park.
12017-01-31 15:57:29 UTCGlassman It looks like you created a campsite within a campsite. Maybe the building could be tagged as an office?
12017-01-30 16:59:21 UTCGlassman To help people find the store please add an appropriate tag such as shop=convenience or shop= whatever it is they sell. see https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Map_Features
12017-01-28 16:58:43 UTCGlassman You seem to be adding over lapping landuse areas. I can easily fix it if you like.
12017-01-28 16:53:39 UTCGlassman The area doesn't appear to be a park according to any city or county record. The east third looks like it is owned by a homeowners assoc. The middle is right-away. the west side could be a tag as landuse=recreation_ground. I obtained the information from [Pierce County.](http://matterhorn3.co.pierce...
12017-01-27 03:24:46 UTCGlassman I'm going to change this to show the address using tags instead of using a name tag.
12017-01-26 22:28:43 UTCGlassman Is that the correct name for the pond?
22017-01-27 00:12:36 UTCCherrybowl The Plaque is in front of the Pond so I am making the assumption. I can leave the name off if the is preferred.
32017-01-27 01:00:41 UTCGlassman No - leave it there. It sounded strange is all. Thanks for adding the data.
12017-01-26 06:35:03 UTCGlassman It looks like the area with the Meadow should be landcover=woods. I'm going to go ahead and change that. BTW - nice addition of the Grace Cole Park. Let me know if you thing I'm wrong on the Meadow.
22017-01-26 06:40:43 UTCGlassman I changed the park Meadow into landcover=woods. Also removed the two nodes on the private residence. I'll send you some more information on the changes via email.
12017-01-26 00:35:06 UTCGlassman I can not find a reference to Woodpecker Reserve on Lynnwood city website. Is it an official reserve or just a wooded area?
12017-01-25 15:17:11 UTCGlassman You might want to consider using landuse=allotments for the community garden. Look at http://www.openstreetmap.org/way/37622644 for an example of one of many in Seattle.
12017-01-24 22:26:36 UTCGlassman This looks more like a green area also the city doesn't show it as one of their parks. Maybe the tag, landuse=village_green, would be more appropriate.
12017-01-17 06:16:11 UTCGlassman It looks like private property. Is this actually a park?
12017-01-16 23:21:38 UTCGlassman Thanks for the additions. Can you add names to the cafe and restaurants you added?
12017-01-12 15:16:33 UTCGlassman could you add names to the cafe, kindergarten, and car wash?
12017-01-12 02:51:27 UTCGlassman Doesn't look like a camp ground or sports center.
12017-01-11 23:01:01 UTCGlassman Is there really a restaurant on Seattle Center's lawn?
12017-01-08 01:27:00 UTCGlassman Jay,
Can your provide more information on the hostel, such as phone number and website if they have one. Thanks.
12016-12-30 03:09:13 UTCGlassman What is the Oberlin? Can you add a tag to describe the feature? see https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Map_Features to get started. Adding a tag to describe the feature will it render on the map as well as help search engines find it.
12016-12-29 20:01:41 UTCGlassman If you connect the footway to the adjacent streets, routers will be able to create a route for pedestrians. I usually do the connections where there is a pedestrian crossing.
12016-12-29 06:29:08 UTCGlassman Should Freezland Rock be a separate country with admin level 2 borders? I can't find any reference to Freezland as a country.
22016-12-29 08:35:36 UTCZecke Should be part of South Sandwich Islands which are Britisch Overseas territory according to Wikipedia. It's long ago but I'm sure I just copied tagging from surrounding islets at that time.
12016-12-29 05:22:41 UTCGlassman The node should be placed on the house.
12016-12-29 00:26:46 UTCGlassman what is this? Can I suggest adding a tag, for example, amenity=doctors or amenity=clinic and add the building outline and address.
12016-12-25 06:51:48 UTCBCNorwich Hello and Welcome to OpenStreetMap.
I can find no evidence of this park and stream or moat. With three houses being demolished there should have been a planning request at least. I have therefore removed your additions.
Perhaps the park is in a different place? Your mapping was actually pretty go...
22016-12-26 06:53:13 UTCGlassman I suspect this was an attempt to influence pokemon go. Good to see it removed.
12016-12-24 00:19:22 UTCGlassman The addition to Saint Edward park is not part of the park. I'm changing the tags to just landcover.
12016-12-20 18:32:07 UTCGlassman I added shop=cannabis to help search engines find the site. The location looks like it's in the trees alongside of the road. Can you move it closer to the door of the building?
12016-12-18 03:50:59 UTCGlassman The state isn't really required, although no harm is done. Since OSM is geospatial, it is easy to determine the state, county and city. We do add city because often addresses outside of the city limits still use the nearby city name.
12016-12-11 23:44:05 UTCGlassman If you added the restaurant from info from google, you will need to remove the restaurant. google copyright prohibits us from copying their information.
22016-12-12 00:19:42 UTCLdore No; I was there yesterday and noticed I was not able to search for it in maps.me - I just updated the info I knew of.
32016-12-12 01:17:13 UTCGlassman thanks
12016-12-09 23:13:32 UTCGlassman The OSM way to tag buildings is to use building=yes if you don't know exactly the purpose of the building. In this case building=garage and building=detatched. See https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:building for more information.
22016-12-09 23:14:29 UTCGlassman The 1746 detached building - does it carry the same address as the house or does it have a letter reference like 1746A?
32016-12-10 01:01:48 UTCGerry Adams Just 1746 would apply to the detached garage, as it sits.
12016-12-05 22:14:14 UTCGlassman Rather than delete the driveways, a better choice is to mark them as highway=service, service=driveway and then mark them as access=private. If emergency vehicles need to access that area, then the roads will be on the map.
22016-12-05 22:35:52 UTCMark Wamsley Ok. But the roads I deleted aren't roads/driveways anymore. They have been permanently barricaded and impassable. The WA Department of Natural Resources has decommissioned roads in the area. They are reverting back to wild growth. I can provide photos and legal paperwork.
12016-12-04 06:08:22 UTCGlassman I added tags to your two business so they will render and help search engines find the businesses.
12016-12-02 22:27:17 UTCGlassman Private means that routing software should not use the roads. Or private in that the road isn't owned by the city or county?
See https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:access%3Dprivate
22016-12-02 22:28:39 UTCBelden Lyman Yes - these are private roads.
32016-12-02 22:31:54 UTCBelden Lyman I intended to link to Google's "Street View" of the "private roads" signs along 199th Place and 168th Place, but the Google car apparently did not drive down 199th place.

Presumably because it's private ¯\\_(ツ)_/¯
42016-12-04 16:27:59 UTCSK53_bulk It's actually usually better to mark 'private roads' as something like access=destination. If mail, parcels etc get delivered, or a cab can do a pick-up then they should be routable for this purposes. access=private would mean none of the above was allowed by the owners. Simon Poole is good on this ...
12016-11-30 00:40:50 UTCGlassman Is there a name to go with the community center?
12016-11-30 00:38:29 UTCGlassman Besides the name tag, a tag is needed to better describe the feature. For example if it is a church office then office=religion. If it is just private house (not open to the public), then it probably shouldn't be tagged.
12016-11-27 00:13:21 UTCGlassman Did you mean Jinya Ramen Bar?
12016-11-15 17:30:46 UTCGlassman Did you intend to create a building as the old city hall historic district covering numerous blocks or just a landuse area?
12016-11-15 01:12:47 UTCGlassman The parking lot has a service road that is not connected to a street. Service roads are normally connected to a street so the router can take the person right to the destination. I fixed one of them.
12016-11-15 00:18:57 UTCGlassman The bank outline should have a building outline. I'll go ahead and add it.
12016-11-14 21:50:35 UTCGlassman you might want to select the building, search for church and add the denomination to the site. That will help search engines better find the facility.
12016-11-10 06:31:40 UTCGlassman You might also want to add in the denomination for the church like the First Baptist Church across the street. Let me know if you need help.
12016-11-03 06:34:33 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 page http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/How_to_map_a.
22016-11-03 14:54:51 UTCGlassman @MasterMadi, may I suggest adding the tag amenity=community_centre. See https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:amenity%3Dsocial_centre for more help
12016-11-01 05:29:57 UTCGlassman I wonder if worksource should be tagged as either office=government or office=employment_agency. See https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:office for more info. [Community Centre](https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:amenity%3Dcommunity_centre)
22016-11-02 19:05:46 UTC3D1T0R I don't know, I just thought it should be on the map. It's kind of a mix, partly government, partly community/social site, and while it's a place to get help in finding employment, they make a point of telling people that they're not an employment agency.

32016-11-02 21:17:46 UTCGlassman I visited on many years ago in Seattle. I always assumed they were like a employment agency. Their [website](https://worksourcewa.com/microsite/Content.aspx?appid=MGSWAINFO&seo=about&pageType=simple) mentions help finding jobs as well as training services. I'd probably go with employment agency.

12016-10-26 05:19:02 UTCGlassman The website doesn't have any news about going out of business. Nothing in a search of news articles. Do you have any documentation to back up removing a section of the course?
22016-10-26 06:10:14 UTCroadgeek99 I remembered that their website was replaced with a notice regarding closure due to construction activity, but can't seem to find it now. But I found some social media posts about it.

32016-10-27 03:35:48 UTCBuellR Yeah, the course closed about a year ago. I live up the street. Just found out about your maps and started looking around my neighborhood. Noticed the golf course that isn't there. I didn't delete the trails and roads because of all the heavy construction going on right now. I just don't know w...
12016-10-19 15:40:00 UTCGlassman What was changed? the changedset comments ... don't give much information.
12016-10-17 22:16:05 UTCGlassman I revised some of your street names. We do not abbreviate street names in OSM. Software can easily abbreviate a name, but has a difficult time un-abbreviating a name.
12016-10-08 21:05:03 UTCGlassman Use the addr:housenumber= tag for house numbers. The outline should have a tag building=yes or building=house. There shouldn't be a name unless the building actually has a name.
12016-10-07 03:31:33 UTCGlassman Is that a correct location of a bakery - the middle of the woods?
12016-10-07 00:43:53 UTCGlassman Driveways usually are not named. Having the housenumber should be enough for routers to give directions to the house.
12016-10-04 20:00:11 UTCGlassman you need more than area=yes. What is the area?
12016-09-27 23:12:23 UTCGlassman I added tag to identify the node as an insurance office as well as a website.
12016-09-25 21:11:48 UTCGlassman The tag Home=camp4ola isn't a recognized tag. Use the wiki [Map Features](https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Map_Features) if you need help with the tag.
12016-09-22 22:58:39 UTCGlassman I removed the building tag inside another building. If the book store is still there, it looks like either the bookstore and ice cream shop should be separate nodes inside the building. Let me know if you need help.
12016-09-22 22:53:49 UTCGlassman We don't tag house names unless it is the official name of the building.
12016-09-22 22:50:48 UTCGlassman You could change the building tag to building=shed. The building_1 key really won't ever get used.
12016-09-22 22:47:25 UTCGlassman Please add a tag to indicate what type of business Schweinhaus Biergarten is. Most likely a restaurant or pub.
12016-09-22 01:14:31 UTCGlassman you might consider squaring the building by selecting the building - right click and click on the square icon.
12016-09-05 16:05:44 UTCGlassman The name tag should only be used with features that have a name, for example, the Mount Rainier Wonderland Trail.
12016-08-28 23:21:12 UTCGlassman looking great!
12016-08-19 17:47:47 UTCGlassman I see you created a new tag. Did you discuss this tag on the tagging mailing list?
12016-08-13 14:47:07 UTCGlassman The Sky View Observatory is already tagged.
12016-08-06 02:26:05 UTCGlassman I drive past here all the time, I've never seen an atm machine at this point.
12016-07-27 19:59:53 UTCGlassman I added a tag so it appears on the map. Not sure exactly what the business does so I used craft=carpenter. Feel free to correct if I picked wrong. I also fixed address.
12016-07-26 22:04:04 UTCGlassman There already is a tag and building for the museum.
12016-07-21 22:46:54 UTCGlassman What is the monument?
22016-07-21 23:27:41 UTCRooster9 It's a 10' metal structure which is a tribute to the tree farm founder.
32016-07-22 00:01:57 UTCGlassman I added a tag historic=monument. If it has a name, please change it to the actual name, even if it just Monument to "tree farmers name"

The tag will allow the feature to be seen on the render map.
12016-07-18 19:42:27 UTCGlassman I added some roads in your complex. Also streets are spelled out. 10th Avenue East instead of 10th Ave E.
12016-07-16 14:09:29 UTCGlassman You might want to add the discovery trail website with the tag website=
12016-07-13 16:20:16 UTCGlassman You need more than a node. I'm going to change this to building=house. you can see more information on tagging on the wiki. wiki.openstreetmap.org.
12016-07-10 15:33:50 UTCGlassman Joel,
Are you tagging the falls? If so the correct tag would be waterway=waterfall. Maps.me doesn't have all tags, you may want to fix it using a browser. If you need help. Let me know if you need any assistance.
22016-07-10 18:16:53 UTCJoel Hazel Hey Glassman - yeah, I tried editing the location but I can't get waterway to come up either. Water Well etc but no waterway (or for that matter, waterfall .. why isn't that one of the standard tags?)
32016-07-10 21:30:25 UTCGlassman waterfall is a standard tag and we do render waterfalls. Maps.me just turned on the editing feature. It's missing so many tags and the data is somewhat outdated. If you use iOS, try GoMap! The developer is from Kirkland and it is by far the best app for editing OSM. Almost makes me by an iPad.

I...
12016-06-18 05:15:04 UTCGlassman Ross Lake National Rec Area is already tagged
12016-06-18 05:14:03 UTCGlassman This park is already tagged.
12016-06-14 00:28:40 UTCGlassman Reverted name back to original
12016-06-11 04:48:18 UTCGlassman For privacy, we don't recommend putting your name on features. The exception is if the building is actually named. For example "Smith Towers" in Seattle
12016-05-27 13:05:29 UTCGlassman There is already a building on the site. By placing a node inside of the building you are basically saying there is a house inside of the building. Instead, you can change the tag to building=house.
12016-05-25 04:36:59 UTCGlassman Is it a traffic circle or a traffic calming island? Seattle has a lot of the later but few traffic circles.
12016-05-11 20:33:27 UTCGlassman Isn't the costco the building almost directly north of your costco yakima node?
22016-05-15 09:24:46 UTCTheodore Ro Yup, my bad. So obviously a newby. I am using Maps.me and when it didn't pop up the Kennewick Costco on the search, I got so engrossed in digging up the address and getting it in that I didn't see what was right in front of my face. I should have sent it a request to delete it right away.

That's...
12016-05-07 00:24:52 UTCGlassman Is Kids and Kritters a business name? If so, please tag it appropriately. For example shop=pets name=Kids and Kritters.
12016-05-04 22:23:00 UTCGlassman I don't recall ever seeing a viewpoint at the mall. The mall is already tagged. I'd suggest we delete this tag.
22016-05-15 19:24:49 UTCuser_5359 done
12016-04-22 20:33:02 UTCGlassman Do you have the English name for the convenience store?
12016-04-13 23:45:26 UTCpnorman Is WA56 an IATA code? I thought they were all 3 letters maximum
22016-04-16 16:11:14 UTCGlassman Correct. I'll fix my error.
12016-04-11 21:27:23 UTCGlassman you should add leisure=park tag to the area and if there is a name associated with the park add that as well. Let me know if you need any help.
12016-04-01 16:14:33 UTCGlassman We haven't import neighborhood boundaries for Seattle. That might be what you are looking for. It's something that the local community should discuss again. Also - I sent you a welcome message. If you want to discuss, send me a message
12016-04-01 16:10:17 UTCGlassman It looks like you marked it access private. That sounds correct for what you are describing.

I suspect that it really isn't Northeast 209th Street. The name is likely an artifact from a early import. If you can verify that it isn't a named road, you can delete the name from the track.
12016-04-01 15:47:51 UTCGlassman You must tag the feature with an attribute, such as man_made=flagpole
12016-03-24 04:19:45 UTCGlassman The donkey trail segment is wrong. I sent a message to the original mapper to fix.
12016-03-18 09:21:58 UTCuser_5359 Thanks for the complement of the OSM dataset. 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 page http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/How_to_map_a.
22016-03-19 05:44:18 UTCGlassman The park is already tagged in OSM.I am removing this name only tag. When adding a feature, besides the name, the feature type should be included. For a park it would be leisure=park. Since the area is already named, a node is not necessary.
12016-03-19 05:32:04 UTCGlassman arenamaps.com is copyright material. Please remove from OSM.

22016-03-19 02:40:36 UTCGlassman Is Mecha a name of a business or the building. We do not add personal information to objects. If you need help, just respond to this changeset discussion.
32016-03-19 02:45:24 UTCvelotron Mecha is the personal name of my house. It was my first OSM commit, and I will revert it. Thanks.
12016-03-13 23:57:46 UTCGlassman The two names you added should have a tag to describe what you are tagging. In Kent's case, the city boundaries already define Kent. To verify search for Kent, WA, one of the responses will be the city of kent admin boundaries. I'm going to remove the node. Let me know if you disagree.

The Planta...
12016-03-09 06:19:04 UTCGlassman Are the fields actually named Dale's Field and Pooter's Field? Names should normally be added when there is a physical sign or is well known locally. If it's just a friends name, please remove it.
12016-02-12 19:34:32 UTCNatfoot Where was it not a multipolygon?
22016-02-12 22:54:01 UTCGlassman Look just north of Bandera Airport. The park extends to the other side of I90. I could have shown I90 going through the park, but since the state didn't, I didn't either.
32016-02-12 22:55:11 UTCGlassman BTW, I'm only part way done. I'm slowly heading east. Right now I'm working on the pass area.
12016-02-10 16:09:57 UTCnickpeihl Can you please review this? The entire Lopez Island is now listed as a park. it shows up entirely green on basemaps. Thanks.
22016-02-10 16:39:08 UTCGlassman thanks for pointing out my error. Somehow I added the tag leisure=park to the shoreline boundary.
32016-02-10 16:57:44 UTCnickpeihl Thanks.
12016-02-09 06:18:41 UTCGlassman What does the #OpenStreetMap Bing update tag mean?
22016-02-09 07:42:27 UTCNatfoot Bing Images
12016-02-08 03:48:04 UTCGlassman I modified the boundaries and discovered a polygon offshore you added that has some strange tags, none that will render. Do you know what it's supposed to be?
12016-02-03 22:48:10 UTCsctrojan79 Nice work on the Arboretum, some really great details added! It looks like part of the creek was duplicated (way ids 155848138 and 392873123) though, and I'm not sure which one is the more accurate one. Would you mind taking another look at it?
22016-02-04 00:19:19 UTCGlassman Thanks for spotting that.I can see why JOSM didn't catch it. It looked to JOSM like two streams.

I have more to add, but need help identifying trees. I haven't gotten back to it yet.
12016-01-31 23:37:13 UTCsctrojan79 Hey, I was doing some island conflation around Puget Sound when I realized I'd just retagged the Sucia Marine State Park relation you added this morning – sorry! I put the tags back as they were.
22016-02-01 02:54:03 UTCGlassman I've been updating parks in the State. Surprised at how many "state parks" we have as nodes that don't actually exist.
12016-01-20 22:17:55 UTCGlassman There appears to be an untagged landuse area around address 15372 94th Ave. in Surrey. Not sure what kind of building that is or I'd make the change.
12016-01-19 21:59:32 UTCGlassman Please add a landuse tag to the area you created. Example landuse=retail or landuse=commercial. See wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Landuse for more information
22016-01-19 22:00:01 UTCGlassman By adding the landuse tag, the area will render on OSM.
12016-01-19 21:49:02 UTCGlassman Towers should be tagged man_made=communications_tower or man_made=mast,tower:type=communications, communications:mobile_phone=yes. (Yea that's long.) Second, we usually don't do all caps.
12016-01-07 06:39:00 UTCGlassman please do not use name= tag to describe a feature.
22016-01-07 06:42:41 UTCJoshuaFlores Still pretty new, thank you for your feed back.
12016-01-07 06:18:46 UTCGlassman please don't put these kind of nodes in OSM.
12016-01-07 06:17:40 UTCGlassman The building tag should only be used for actual buildings. Please outline the building and add the building=church to it. You can change the polygon around the church to landuse=religious.
12016-01-07 06:13:17 UTCGlassman please do not use name= for descriptions.
12016-01-07 02:57:17 UTCGlassman favorie parking spot should not be used in a name tag. Nor should garbage can.
12016-01-06 01:02:31 UTCGlassman Please add a tag to describe what the object is. My guess would be amenity=library. The tag allows the proper icon to be displayed.
12016-01-05 06:17:09 UTCGlassman The name should be the name of the building. see https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Map_Features for more info.
12015-12-23 17:10:07 UTCpnorman Is https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/305503671 water? It looks covered
22015-12-23 17:26:53 UTCGlassman Could be alge over the pond. You can delete it if you want.
12015-12-18 18:17:54 UTCGlassman Nice addition. Porcupine peak isn't even in the USGS's own GNIS database.
12015-12-13 02:52:50 UTCGlassman This isn't an appropriate tag for OSM.
12015-12-11 23:19:34 UTCGlassman Welcome to OSM. We like to give the full road name. So NE Faris Street would be entered as Northeast Faris Street and Lauren St. would be Lauren Street. We do this because it's easy for software to abbreviate but hard to un-abbreviate. Would you mind changing the names?
12015-12-10 22:27:04 UTCGlassman If it is a grocery store, you might want to add a tag shop=supermarket. That will add a icon to the store and make it easier for people to find.
22016-01-04 07:53:14 UTCmos35 Thank you! I just added those tags.
12015-12-07 03:51:27 UTCGlassman now it makes sense!
12015-12-06 15:31:53 UTCGlassman Did you intend for the service road to be oneway?
22015-12-06 18:32:49 UTCpnorman Yes.
12015-11-22 00:37:36 UTCGlassman I don't think you intended to make the whole area a lake. but if you look at how young lake rendes, you'll see it is all blue. Did you want to add a landuse?
22015-11-23 20:52:16 UTCGlassman I changed to landuse=public. Also disconnected landuse from roads/bike path. Still need cleanup. looks like the bike path should be a relation where they share the road. But I've never been there! could use someone with to survey.
12015-11-12 03:14:07 UTCGlassman Richard - why are we changing roads to unclassified?
22015-11-12 09:09:21 UTCRichard Hi Clifford - highway=unclassified is the standard OSM tag for a minor rural road of reasonable quality (assumed paved in a developed country), as well as those with more of a connecting role in urban areas. The introductory paras at http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:highway explain it well.
\...
12015-11-09 19:53:48 UTCGlassman A couple of points. 1)
The retention ponds should probably be tagged landuse=basin
basin=retention.

2) Did you mean to make the pond part of Duval? The ponds is part of the duval admin boundary. That usually isn't the case.
12015-11-09 06:01:29 UTCGlassman The stairs should be tagged as highway=steps.
12015-11-09 05:58:07 UTCGlassman You can tag the actual beach as natural=beach. It will render the beach as a sand color.
12015-11-09 05:52:38 UTCGlassman I added the tag tourism=viewpoint so it will render correctly.
12015-11-09 05:50:40 UTCGlassman This this footway connect to the ways on either end? By connecting them you enable routing.
12015-10-31 16:35:04 UTCGlassman We don't usually put people names on houses unless they are historical names. You might want to remove it if it contains personal information. Addresses are okay.
12015-10-28 01:47:20 UTCGlassman I removed the name=Test from tag. Otherwise great addition.
12015-10-27 06:05:10 UTCGlassman The convention in OSM is to spell out street name. Maritime Dr should be Maritime Drive.
12015-10-27 02:24:43 UTCGlassman There are some untagged ways in this commit. Rather than delete them, I thought maybe you'd want to tag them. If you open http://tools.geofabrik.de/osmi/ you and look at the "tagging" section to find untagged ways in this area. I just noticed you did one of them.
12015-10-23 20:57:52 UTCGlassman I noticed the electrified=269 tag on the lake. I know that the lake produces hydroelectric power, but not sure why the tag.
22015-10-24 00:59:46 UTCcompdude I don't have the slightest clue. Go ahead and remove it if you want.
12015-10-18 21:44:25 UTCGlassman I moved your restaurant from the road to a nearby building since I doubt it actually sits on the road. If I picked the wrong building you might want to change it. I'd also suggest adding an address and phone number to the tags.
12015-10-18 21:40:34 UTCGlassman Is the basemap licensed for use by OSM?
22015-10-19 03:35:56 UTCMadrona Indeed it is, the basemap from San Juan County.
12015-10-18 21:35:12 UTCGlassman We don't usually add people's names to OSM. remove the names. Instead, add their address, for example 123 Main Street, Somecity, with zip code. state isn't needed.
12015-10-05 23:55:18 UTCGlassman I moved your node to inside of the mall and fixed addressing tags. You may want to position it better. The shop is not listed on the malls directory. If it isn't in the mall, someone will most likely remove it.
12015-10-05 23:53:22 UTCGlassman Shops should in building not on roads. I moved your point to inside of Northgate mall. You may want to better position it. I also noticed it was not on the malls list of stores.
12015-10-05 23:31:47 UTCGlassman nice!
12015-10-05 23:30:51 UTCGlassman You might want to draw the building outline and name it and give it a suitable tag, such as shop=electric
12015-09-27 00:14:15 UTCGlassman Thanks for getting this done!
12015-09-23 17:07:21 UTCGlassman Can you provide a type of tag, ie. amenity=hotel or tourism=guest_house. Just providing a name doesn't help as much as a name and a type.
Thanks
12015-09-10 03:10:45 UTCGlassman thanks for fixing these tags. I knew we agreed on leisure=fitness_centre, but just plain forgot. Need to get josm updated with updated tags.
12015-08-10 04:40:21 UTCGlassman Bob - you took out the roundabouts in Sedro Woolley. While the are not on the Bing image, they do exist. Can you please revert your edit?
12015-08-08 05:50:47 UTCGlassman We usually don't name driveways unless there is a street sign. What are you trying to add? Maybe I can help.
12015-08-05 18:40:15 UTCGlassman Summer Falls State Park is tag as a polygon (the green area) You might want to tag the actual falls waterway=waterfall, name=, height if you know it.
12015-06-16 16:19:36 UTCGlassman It looks like you removed West 4th Street. Can you restore the deleted roads?
22015-06-17 05:29:53 UTCGlassman I went ahead in added in West 4th Street.
12015-06-12 15:09:47 UTCGlassman I removed the road. It doesn't exist last time I drove through the park.
22015-11-13 13:12:03 UTCChetan_Gowda Great!! @Glassman.
12015-05-22 23:57:53 UTCGlassman I'm curious what you did. The change set comments doesn't really describe anything. As far as I can tell, Pass Lane doesn't exist.
22015-05-28 20:49:39 UTCandrewpmk http://osmlab.github.io/to-fix/

Semi automated road fixing using 2014 TIGER data.

Please fix if there are any errors
12015-05-10 14:57:07 UTCĐonny I think it was not a wise decision for me to delete the object, but now I don't know how to restore it :-(. I'll try JOSM.
But the original issue stay, there's a lot of sea marked as mainland.
22015-05-10 15:10:42 UTCĐonny OK, maybe it was not that unwise. No, the sea appeared correctly. So I'll not undo my change. But maybe the border of Deception Pass State Park is wrong now.
32015-05-10 16:16:02 UTCGlassman It looks like Deception State Park boundary is broken now. I modified the boundary about a year ago. The whole area was a mess. What object did you delete? I wonder if I added it?
42015-05-11 06:40:12 UTCĐonny I deleted a object 233546556, v5 which has been part of the boundary, but it als somehow formed a new shoreline in the middle of the sea, so everything north from the boundary looked like mainland.
52015-05-11 16:08:56 UTCGlassman I reconnected the park multipolygon - I need recheck validation to make sure nothing is missing as well as check rendering.
62015-05-12 06:52:21 UTCĐonny Looks good, thank you, and sorry for my invasive edit.
12015-04-30 05:18:52 UTCGlassman This doesn't look like it belongs in OSM. Please remove it or tag it correctly.
12015-04-14 15:04:32 UTCGlassman I'm curious why you changed roads from residential to tertiary. I'm familiar with most of these roads since I drive them regularly.
22015-04-15 01:58:47 UTCIvan Komarov Hi Glassman,

I drove around there a week ago while visiting the tulip festival. The crowd was enormous so I had to circle around for a while :)

According to the Wiki
http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:highway%3Dresidential
Dike Road is not residential (as well as many other ones around.....
12015-04-06 16:04:46 UTCGlassman Street name should be entered spelled out. abbreviation should not be used for street names. It is easy for software to abbreviate names but hard to un-abbreviate.
12015-04-05 19:29:07 UTCGlassman Looks great. Do you know when they added it? It seems like the county is crazy for roundabouts. Wonder when they'll have the first super roundabout. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Magic_Roundabout_(Swindon)#/media/File:Swindon_Magic_Roundabout.svg
