12017-08-11 16:21:57 UTC3vivekb Hmm. I'm not sure if I know what correct sidewalk tagging is versus footpaths.
22017-08-11 16:50:17 UTCbhousel Hello, how you did it looks ok! People tend to use Sidewalk for paths alongside a road, and Footpath for paths not alongside a road. (Sidewalk is really just a special kind of Footpath). And connect them to the roads wherever it is logical for people to walk. Thanks!

12017-07-01 16:23:47 UTCuser_5359 Welcome to OSM! Unfortunately there exists no bridge in the OSM data.But you mean the road does not cross the river Manson Mill Creek? If so, the road must be divided.

If you need help: You are welcome!!
22017-07-01 17:57:59 UTCbeemerphile There was a bridge which was destroyed over 30 years ago. The center of the missing bridge is one of the corners of my property. East Jones Chapel Road has been abandoned by the county government at the 861 address by virtue of over 20 years of disuse. It is not possible to travel from East Jones...
32017-07-01 17:58:25 UTCbeemerphile I do not know how to make the map edits.
42017-07-02 09:18:31 UTCfreebeer Hi there, lover of BMW...

I have just saved the first of several edits to clean up this area based on aerial orthophotography, even though I know some to be years or decades out of date.

This area is not mapped to the standards we can find elsewhere, because most data I looked at was imported ...
52017-07-02 09:22:06 UTCfreebeer Look here "freebeer" (IF that is your real name), if you can't keep comments short, at least spend that wasted time doodling and scrawling over our beloved map so we don't have to read your pathetic drivel.
Signed, a fan (NOT)
62017-07-02 11:08:36 UTCbeemerphile Commenting only on your edit and not your editorial, the rock abutments of the missing bridge still exist. The road is private property (mine) beginning at the left turn where E Jones Chapel ends, though it continues 150 feet past my entrance where there is a barricade. The former road past the ba...
72017-07-02 13:12:01 UTCuser_5359 Can I help one of you?
82017-07-02 16:38:21 UTCbeemerphile Hi. My objective was to have the connection between East Jones Chapel Rd. and Phillips Rd. shown as permanently impassable because of a bridge out. GPS programs route through here and cause significant confusion.
92017-07-02 17:57:14 UTCbhousel Thanks @beemerphile, I marked the bridge as `highway=destroyed` and `destroyed:highway=track`. This along with the `access=no` tag should prevent OSM-based routers from sending cars down the road. (They should not route traffic along `highway=track` anyway).
102017-07-02 18:00:05 UTCbeemerphile many thanks!
112017-07-05 23:51:30 UTCfreebeer Hi Beemer, after a few days offline...
I took the liberty of interpreting your reply to me to make changes matching your description:
* Remove road name left behind after the left turn
* Add a barrier approximately where you describe; for lack of actual knowledge I picked concrete blocks, and tag...
122017-07-06 00:17:55 UTCbeemerphile Madison County Georgia still maintains and claims right of way past the power line to the line that I described. Phillips Road does go a bit closer to the creek than E Jones Chapel does, however the edits that were done should be sufficient to stop routing. Many thanks. I have even had a moving v...

12017-06-10 05:43:30 UTCbhousel Hi granpueblo, I notice that you are reclassifying a lot of the roads across New Jersey. Many of us in New Jersey are using this criteria for road classification: https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/New_Jersey#Classifications

The state already does generally assign 500 and 600 numbers based on ...

12017-05-25 05:13:52 UTCnammala Hi systemerror,

Welcome and thanks for contributing to OpenStreetMap (OSM). Noticed that you added park and waterbody which doesn't exist in the Imagery. Could you please confirm the source of adding this .

Regards,
nammala
22017-05-25 19:41:37 UTCsystemerror I currently live in the neighborhood I edited. And you are correct the imagery is several years old as of right now. It currently has images of fields and dead end roads but this is out of date. Even Google Maps is out of date as they do not have the currently developed neighborhood homes and street...
32017-05-25 20:25:29 UTCbhousel Thanks systemerror, I do notice that the features show up on the DigitalGlobe Premium and Standard imagery layers, which seems to be newer than Bing here. (btw, the "flood plain" is normally tagged in OSM as a "basin". I will make the change for you, thanks and welcome!)
12017-05-21 10:28:10 UTCbhousel 👏
12017-05-14 19:10:54 UTCbhousel juliaj, OpenStreetMap goes by what is on the sign, not necessarily what is the "official" name. A user with local knowledge of this area has told me that it is signed both ways, and so a more appropriate tag to use is `alt_name`. Thanks!

12017-05-02 20:05:35 UTCbhousel Thanks for your contributions and welcome to OpenStreetMap! It's important to connect the sidewalks to the roads at places where people are expected to cross, so I added some connections there..

A few tips: 1. Where the crosswalks intersect roads, it's good practice to join them with a point. 2. The "Pedestrian Crosswalk" type is really for if there is a marking on the ground. There is another ...

12017-04-13 20:05:07 UTCSpanholz Welcome to OSM,

you added a lot of sidewalks here. But they are quite useless. Residential roads imply a sidewalk and your sidewalks are not connected to anything...
22017-04-14 03:00:13 UTCbhousel @Spanholz It is acceptable and common to map sidewalks this way in the US.

@dlcook, thank you for your contribution. As Spanholz said, you should connect them to the road network at intersections, ideally with crossing nodes. I will map a few for you around this area so that you can see how it ...
32017-04-14 03:22:09 UTCdlcook Thanks, @Spanholz - I see what you've done here!
12017-04-10 15:35:23 UTCbhousel Tbeeper24, please do not add "private" parks to OpenStreetMap. Parks are public spaces, and if you add fake parks to the map, people may show up at your house upset. The other features that you've added look fine, and I do see them on aerial imagery. Welcome to OpenStreet and thank you fo...

Editor is also unknown is this a testing edit of a new editor?
22017-03-30 15:58:43 UTCbhousel Hi @transilien-mapmagare, welcome to OpenStreetMap. Just FYI, the correct changeset tag to use for your editor is `created_by` (with an underscore not a hyphen).

Also it is considered good practice to use the dev sandbox server https://api06.dev.openstreetmap.org for testing like this, thanks!...

12017-03-26 17:11:36 UTCuser_5359 Welcome to OSM! I can believe the guidance of the railway https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/11563784#map=19/40.85507/-74.09658.

The branch is not connected to the main track, but to the country boundary (Even before your change).

I can't see the wall you mentioned in the comment.
22017-03-26 17:44:54 UTCbhousel Hey @scetron, welcome to OpenStreetMap.. I filled in some of the details around this new train station based on more updated 2015 aerial imagery.

When mapping in New Jersey, we have access to free imagery provided by the our wonderful state government. You can open up the "Background"...
32017-04-04 17:15:13 UTCscetron Thanks for the input! This one was bugging me because it's a convoluted area and a new station. The rail spur there actually goes to a NJ Transit building. I'll be sure to check out the NJ aerial maps for future edits.

12017-03-10 20:22:00 UTCbhousel Hi and welcome to OpenStreetMap! Thank you for all of your contributions!

This area should probably just be tagged as grass and not as a park, unless it has specific park-like features (like footpaths, benches, playground equipment, etc).

22017-03-10 02:30:28 UTCMjordan There is a city park right behind the city hall... do you live in Dike? And Jp's one more is real as well!
32017-03-10 02:55:49 UTCbhousel Sorry if I was too hasty to revert your edits. Because of reddit, every 2 minutes a new user signs on and most of them are adding fake parks. Please try to be precise in tracing the boundaries and assigning the names of the parks in your town, thanks!
42017-03-10 03:11:28 UTCMjordan Sorry I was having trouble with the points and got frustrated and just saved it
52017-03-10 03:43:42 UTCbhousel No problem, I just put it back and mapped a bunch of stuff around the area. Sorry again!
12017-03-10 03:00:32 UTCFTA Hi,
Welcome to OSM! Please make sure you are adding parks in OSM where there are actually parks. If it is just an open area but not designated as a park, mark it as grass. If you have any questions about mapping, just let someone know!
Thanks,
Ethan aka FTA
22017-03-10 03:09:32 UTCMjordan Would you like me to take a picture of the park? The town I live in has less then 1,500 people... there is a Swingset, slide and a couple bars to play on? Is that grass or park ?
32017-03-10 03:32:12 UTCbhousel Thanks Mjordan, that sounds like a park to me.. As long as you draw the area for it over the grassy part and not over the buildings and streets, I think it's fine. Again, sorry if we are being hasty to delete but we are all working very hard on cleanup today :) Thanks for your contributions..

1. Almond Drive should not be a primary road, so I changed it to a Residential road

2. The playground that you added does now appear to be a playground on aerial imagery...

12017-03-03 21:39:10 UTCbhousel Hi! It looks like the trail you added isn't a trail, it's just a bunch of scribbles around your house. Please only map features that exist in the real world!

I've mapped your house in detail with the footpaths, driveway, pool out back, and the forest behind your house - features that do exist i...

12017-03-02 20:48:47 UTCbhousel Thanks for your contribution hanz, and welcome to OpenStreetMap.

In the iD editor you can use the "Square Corners" option on the menu to make your buildings look even better. Give it a try!

12017-02-27 21:28:41 UTCbhousel Thanks for your contribution and welcome to OpenStreetMap! I just mapped the rest of the new development.

When editing OpenStreetMap in NJ, there is a background imagery option that is from 2015 and is a little lower quality than Bing, but it shows newer features. This layer is available by c...
12017-02-25 06:08:23 UTCpkoby Hey, I noticed that you changed a lot of crossing=* to crossing=zebra, but according to the wiki, this isn't a standard tagging scheme. It appears it's a commonly used tag, but while I think it might be fine changing =uncontrolled to it, I think changing =traffic_signals to =zebra removes important ...
22017-02-25 19:15:11 UTCbhousel Hi pkoby, this is one of those situations where I think the wiki gives poor guidance. The junction node between a crosswalk and the road exists so that vehicular traffic can know that there is a crossing there. The stripes on the ground are a 'control device' so calling marked crosswalks "unc...
32017-02-25 19:23:45 UTCpkoby Your reasoning makes a lot of sense. In my way of thinking, zebra stripes are uncontrolled in the sense that they aren't unmarked and don't have signals. But taginfo shows crossing=zebra to be one of the most common, so I'm going to say it seems like a good strategy.

Yes, I suppose as long as the...
12017-02-25 04:00:52 UTCbhousel Thank you for your contribution and welcome to OpenStreetMap!
22017-02-25 05:37:05 UTCDangaaaa No problem, and thanks for the welcome!
12017-02-24 21:21:22 UTCbhousel Thanks for your contribution and welcome to OpenStreetMap! The landuse imported around New Jersey is public data from 2002, so while most of it is still accurate, some of it has changed a lot since then. Thank you for cleaning it up :)
12017-02-24 03:06:44 UTCbhousel Thanks for your contribution and welcome to OpenStreetMap!
12017-02-24 02:33:00 UTCbhousel Thanks for your contribution and welcome to OpenStreetMap! I capitalized the park names and added a few parking areas and footpaths. Looks great :)

22017-02-22 13:55:14 UTCbhousel Also worth mentioning, you can draw an area with the "Construction" preset around the whole new development, and this will let other mappers know that the area might have changed significantly since the imagery was taken, and know not to delete your edits...

12017-02-20 00:47:11 UTCbhousel Nice work! Thanks for your contribution and welcome to OSM!

I connected the walking paths to nearby roads, this is something that is important for routing and prevent warnings. Thanks again!
12017-02-17 20:24:04 UTCbhousel Thank you for your contribution and welcome to OpenStreetMap :)
12017-02-17 16:23:46 UTCbhousel Hello, Welcome to OpenStreetMap! Please only add real parks that are open to the public.
12017-02-17 16:09:32 UTCbhousel Thank you! Welcome to OpenStreetMap!
12017-02-15 22:44:03 UTCbhousel Great first edit! Welcome to OpenStreetMap!
12017-02-15 18:19:00 UTCbhousel Welcome to OSM! Fine first edit, sir!

Where the paths cross the roads, it is important to add a junction node to make sure things are connected for proper routing. I have added them for you. Anyway welcome!
12017-02-12 19:25:15 UTCbhousel Thank you for adding this! Welcome to OSM :)
12017-01-27 18:47:56 UTCSK53 Many thanks for this update.

Just to let you know that you can also tag this with landuse=construction and construction=residential which means exactly the same as "(under construction)". It also helps mappers because landuse=construction is always a sign to check for changes.
22017-01-29 21:47:43 UTChelengem thankyou... i'd seen in a search on map wiki that I could do this but First time editing streetmaps and just using the ID editor I couldn't see how to select a construction feature tag.
32017-01-30 10:37:56 UTCSK53 I've just tried it out, and am surprised to find that it's not directly supported in the editor. You certainly did the best thing then. I'm asking the lead developer of the editor whether they can support landuse=construction.
42017-01-30 14:12:43 UTCbhousel Hi, in iD you can draw an area and choose the "Construction" preset. It will apply the tag `landuse=construction`.
12017-01-29 01:02:20 UTCbhousel This is a great first edit! Welcome to OpenStreetMap and thank you! :)
12016-12-23 20:11:56 UTCbhousel Welcome and thank you for your contribution to openstreetmap! There does not appear to be a path here on the most recent 2015 NJ Aerial imagery.

Please add only features that exist in the real world. There are plenty of nearby paths and sidewalks around this area, and I'll add a few for you s...
