12018-10-10 14:06:17 UTCbhousel Thanks for adding this building! Just a few things: 1. Please don't connect them directly to the road, you can zoom in to make sure they are spaced apart from the road a bit 2. People in OSM definitely prefer when the buildings are drawn with nice square corners, so try typing “S” to m...
12018-09-04 16:20:25 UTCSK53 I'm afraid this is a huge mess. You have added a vast number of pedestrian highways in a stadium, which is incorrect and probably tagging for the renderer. These are presumably banks of seating. I doubt that you got this information from anywhere other than the website of the stadium or some other c...
22018-09-04 17:07:33 UTCbhousel FWIW, I think what stadiaarcadia did here is pretty great and I have no issue with it. I agree it would be nice to say more about it's source. But numbered seating sections just as public as things like numbered parking lots or numbered train platforms? e.g. even if they take this information fro...
32018-09-04 17:36:59 UTCstadiaarcadia Hi, the first row was already included. It was a pedestrian way already, probably because you can walk over the stairs at the lines. I added the missing second and third rows (with the numbers between 200 and 350). I saw that various other stadiums (look at the large Canadian stadiums for example) a...
42018-09-04 17:40:14 UTCstadiaarcadia I am done with all my stadium edits by the way. I'm going to check all my edits for errors, most of my edits which contained errors have already been reverted/adapted. Please give me a little time to improve / revert some of my edits. Only a small amount of my edits still contain errors, I will fix ...
52018-09-04 18:10:20 UTCSK53 I have no problem with micromapping details of stadia, for instance adding numbered areas of seating/rows etc, but they are not routable pedestrian areas. I have changed these to stadium=seating (no idea if the tag is in use, but seems sensible, and keeps the information) and altered the name to ref...
62018-09-04 18:25:54 UTCstadiaarcadia Thanks bhousel and SK53 :)
72018-09-04 19:13:19 UTCSK53 I'm not sure of the best way to map gangways & stairs in the stadium. Probably use highway=footway (not pedestrian) and highway=steps. If these are a large area use area:highway=footway or steps in conjunction with a routeable way (steps in particular may be wide with many handrails to provide ...
82018-10-08 07:08:55 UTCstadiaarcadia I've fixed stadium areas at the MetLife Stadium, but you've made those invisible now. It took me a lot of effort to fix those, I saw that same style at numerous other stadiums. Can you please make those squares/areas visible again?
92018-10-08 15:48:19 UTCSomeoneElse @stadiaarcadia - above you ask "Can you please make those squares/areas visible again?" The answer is yes, but you're going to need to find a custom renderer to show the data. There are 4 map styles visible on osm.org. There's the "standard" one (which I presume that you're ta...
102018-10-08 17:55:46 UTCstadiaarcadia I didn't start with those squares, I finished the missing ones. Somebody else started with the squares and the numbers, I've added the missing squares.

Can you also check this stadium:

https://www.openstreetmap.org/search?query=bmo%20field#map=19/43.63322/-79.41859

It's probably also wrong....
112018-10-08 18:40:30 UTCSomeoneElse > Somebody else started with the squares and the numbers, I've added the missing squares.

You added https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/619381259/history . Can you give an example of one that was there before?
122018-10-08 18:54:14 UTCstadiaarcadia Most of the areas in the first ring were not added by me for example.
132018-10-08 18:54:52 UTCSomeoneElse Can you give an example of one that was there before?
12018-08-13 17:26:21 UTCjmapb There are dozens of these around Brooklyn and Queens, all added by homeslice60148 and tagged with #maproulette and #Long_Island_traffic_lights_(Brooklyn,_Queens)

Aside from the facts that 1) they're generally not in places where sidewalk mapping makes any difference to pedestrian routing, and 2)...
22018-08-14 14:52:35 UTCTheBestIdea My personal preference is that, in NYC where sidewalks are the norm, if they just follow the geometry of the road, they should be mapped as an attribute of the road with the "sidewalk=" key and not as a separate way.
When they're disconnected at the ends so that they actively impede ro...
32018-08-14 15:57:10 UTCbhousel It would be great if, rather than removing the sidewalks, you would just connect them to the road where crossings exist. It's not a matter of "personal preference" - there are groups working on wheelchair routing that need to map attributes on the sidewalk ways (like smoothness and obstac...
42018-08-14 16:14:54 UTCTheBestIdea There appears to be a robust debate about whether sidewalks should be separate ways: https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Sidewalks#Sidewalk_as_separate_way If people want to take to time to do so, I'm not going to stop them, but they should do it in a way that does not impede routing for other users...
52018-08-14 16:35:07 UTCbhousel Yes, I'm aware of the wiki page. Again, the primary usecase for this style of mapping is for wheelchair users who can not cross the street mid-block. It does not impede routing for other users (I'm not sure why some people think this).
62018-08-14 17:01:03 UTCjmapb None of these #maproulette #Long_Island_traffic_lights_(Brooklyn,_Queens) sidewalks have any wheelchair or smoothness info. I've actually never seen any such info on sidewalks here. (I have seen sloped_curb=yes on some *road* intersections, but that's obsolete now.) Yes, it might be added someday, b...
72018-08-14 17:02:28 UTCjmapb Personally I only map sidewalks when I perceive that it would improve routing, but I can easily imagine that at some point in the future mapping every sidewalk will be the norm. I'm not inclined to fight against this -- but I do want people to map responsibly, so that the map isn't less useful after...
82018-08-14 17:11:10 UTCjmapb BTW here is a very silly example of screwed up pedestrian routing. (Wheelchair routing would have the same problem, I believe.)

https://www.openstreetmap.org/directions?engine=graphhopper_foot&route=40.60721%2C-74.01134%3B40.60740%2C-74.01154#map=19/40.60770/-74.01090&layers=N
92018-08-14 17:14:17 UTCbhousel jmapb, please leave me alone. If you need help adding a crosswalk to fix that routing issue, ask on help.openstreetmap.org
102018-08-14 17:18:00 UTCjmapb These comments are not a personal attack and your defensiveness is uncalled for. I'm discussing the changeset. If you don't want to part of the changeset discussion, hit the "unsubscribe" button.
112018-08-14 19:15:01 UTCMikeN I've observed new mappers drawing these types of sidewalks without crossings because they appear to 'stop at the curb'. They're just entering an observation. I'd see it as a work in progress, and not usable for navigation on its own until the network has been fully entered..
A community might de...
122018-08-14 20:43:39 UTCjmapb I don't think these are being mapped this way because they stop at the curb -- there are clearly visible crosswalks at all of the hanging ends. I don't know whether homeslice60148 prefers to map this way or if it's part of the maproulette instructions (? I don't know how maproulette works. You, Mike...
132018-08-14 20:45:34 UTCjmapb BTW this changset (61631661) has been reverted by changeset 61662763 (restoring the deleted sidewalks), and the loose sidewalk ends have been tied into the street grid by changeset 61662897. This will improve the routing. It will still be a left and two rights to get from 691 Fulton to 239 Ashland P...
142018-08-14 20:48:42 UTCTheBestIdea I agree that your suggestion would be a big improvement.
152018-08-14 21:26:03 UTCjmapb Happy to hear it. And MikeN. by the way, I believe I misread what you meant by "end at the curb" -- yes indeed, the sidewalks themselves do literally end at the curb, crosswalks or no, and I can easily imagine a mapper choosing to map them in this literal fashion without realizing that it ...
162018-08-15 16:58:26 UTCjmapb Well I added my sample "cap" at the Fulton/Ashland place, changeset 61672263. If there's ever a consensus to purge these loose-end sidewalks that survives the edit wars, please feel free to get rid of that too -- it's only useful IMO as a fix to routing problem the loose ends cause.

182018-08-15 19:46:49 UTChomeslice60148 Whoops, let's try this again. Hi, everyone! I just noticed jmapb's message and I'm jumping into the discussion here to let everyone know what I'm doing and why. I am a very long time mapper on OSM, and it is my general goal to improve the map. I personally follow the "do no harm, delete no cor...
192018-08-16 16:46:13 UTCjmapb Hi homeslice, thanks for joining us -- I shouldn't have given up so quickly! And thanks for being clear about your goals and MO.
As I said, I've admired your sidewalks. But I hope I've also demonstrated the downside this mapping technique has on the pedestrian routing.
When sidewalks are fully ma...
202018-08-17 20:02:32 UTChomeslice60148 J,
I think the solution of closing the crosswalks for routing will work. I will do this from now on.
212018-08-17 21:02:36 UTCjmapb Thanks! (Btw I think I mapped your place today: https://www.openstreetmap.org/node/1829661485 )
12018-08-14 16:45:38 UTCAthalis It should be "destroyed:highway", as it's a lifecycle *prefix*, shouldn't it?
22018-08-14 16:45:59 UTCluschi Hello,
please stop editing in this area!
As I can see, you are not a regional mapper.
If you will help, you can comment tagging in the node here: https://www.openstreetmap.org/note/1489296
thanks
32018-08-14 16:47:46 UTCbhousel ok fine luschi, you fix it then. 😠
42018-08-14 16:57:15 UTCluschi I will not editing anything without contacting a local mapper.
Your angry smiley does not help either
12018-07-30 15:04:34 UTCPolarbear Dear Adamant1, thanks for updating the geometry of residential roads. It would be even better if you preserve the history of existing roads by moving them, instead of deleting/recreating.
Thanks.

22018-07-30 16:28:12 UTCAdamant1 Your welcome. 99% of the time I do. It was particular messed up in this area though, with a lot of none existant roads, crossing each other ar wierd angles, that were making it impossible to see where the actual roads were. So just moving them wasn't an option. I took care to study Bing Street View ...
32018-07-30 17:34:47 UTCfreebeer (finally bothering to log in)
While I have not used it myself, I believe there is a JOSM function or plug-in, Replace Geometry, which from my understanding, would be ideal to preserve the history.
Mostly I read it mentioned for building imports, to preserve original contributors' sloppy mapping cr...
42018-07-30 18:53:20 UTCAdamant1 Hey freebeer. I'll have to check that out. As it is ID editor currently has a three or four step proccess just to split nodes. Let along move and reatach them. There's an issue requesting it be simplifed thats being considered. Hopefully they put it through. I really need to put some time into learn...
52018-07-30 21:14:26 UTCPolarbear @both, yes I use JOSM/Replace Geometry a lot in such cases. It comes with the https://josm.openstreetmap.de/wiki/Help/Plugin/UtilsPlugin2

A few hours earlier I could have asked the iD developer directly on SotM/Milano, but it's over today.
62018-07-30 21:19:22 UTCAdamant1 @polarbear, good to know it works for that. I'll have to look into it. To bad you couldn't of asked the iD developer in person about it. I would of liked to know his answer. Hope SotM was fun and educational. I wish I could of gone to the one here but I wasn't able to.
72018-07-30 21:20:56 UTCAdamant1 P.S. this area could be a de facto example of how horrible TIGER is in some places. It is really surprising how off it is sometimes.
82018-07-30 22:30:10 UTCbhousel I'm the iD developer. What's your question?
92018-07-31 02:00:52 UTCAdamant1 Hi bhousel. We were just discussing the amount of steps it currently takes in iD editor to disconnect, split, and then rejoin nodes. I guess there is an easier way to do it in JOSM. I think Polarbear was wondering if it is something you plan to simplify at some point. I noticed there is currently a...
12018-07-27 20:52:08 UTCbhousel Thanks for your contribution and welcome to OpenStreetMap! Awesome username, too! :)
12018-06-22 00:08:30 UTCPaul Johnson Doesn't look bad, but lanes shouldn't be used on laneless streets.

32018-06-30 14:57:14 UTCPaul Johnson At least in the US and Canada, there's an understanding that the only time lanes=* should be tagged on a street with no painted lanes is where the lines are missing due to lack of maintenance. These streets, lanes=2 isn't appropriate because there's no lanes nor evidence that lanes were ever painte...
42018-06-30 16:14:02 UTCbhousel It's totally ok to add lanes tags to laneless streets.
52018-06-30 18:06:31 UTCPaul Johnson That really seems a lot like just making stuff up at that point, bhousel.
62018-07-01 10:37:30 UTCMikeN I also don't know of a convention in the US and Canada where it is incorrect to add lanes to stripeless roads.
72018-07-01 11:49:29 UTCPaul Johnson How is it not geofiction to do so?
82018-07-01 18:27:52 UTCMikeN It explicitly models the road as 2 traffic flows where normal size vehicles pass each other, as well as differentiating from 1 lane roads where one vehicle would need to back up to an opening to pass.
92018-07-01 18:42:55 UTCPaul Johnson Except on streets like this, that's not really reliably possible when someone's parked on one or both sides of the street unless you're on something singletrack. You make a strong argument for tagging width=* after measuring it, though.
12018-06-28 06:02:58 UTCGlassman Can you explain why you removed the footways? These appear to be valid sidewalks.

22018-06-29 18:50:54 UTCTEG24601 Every single one of them is a sidewalk and included as part of the street themselves. Adding them as separate walkways clutters the map and makes it more difficult to use.
32018-06-29 19:41:17 UTCGlassman Check out the OpenSidewalks.com initiative. The goal is to have a fully navigable sidewalk network. A number of cities have started mapping their sidewalk network into osm, including Seattle, Bellevue, Austin, and Santa Clara.

While it may appear "cluttered" they are verifiable objects...
42018-06-29 20:25:16 UTCbhousel I've reverted this change in https://www.openstreetmap.org/changeset/60288925 - TEG24601, please do not delete other people's data because you think it makes the map "cluttered".

12018-05-23 15:24:10 UTCbhousel Thanks for your contribution and welcome to OpenStreetMap! iD has a type called "Indoor Corridor" which is more for indoor mapping. A good thing to do is connect to them to the building entrances, and add an "Entrance" point there. I will edit a few so you can see what I mean...
22018-05-28 17:57:18 UTCuser_5359 I added the school building ;)

12018-05-27 15:39:01 UTCuser_5359 Hello! I see a indoor mapping, but I didn't see the building?!
22018-05-28 17:19:47 UTCbhousel Yeah, a new user had mapped the indoor corridors as `highway=path`, so I left a comment, changed them to `corridor`, and added a few more things around there. https://www.openstreetmap.org/changeset/59213786#map=19/40.69485/-74.54616

12018-05-16 04:58:20 UTCuser_5359 Welcome to OSM! Thanks for adding the houses. But normally a house doesn't have the name House (it is only a description). Also an additional in the house with the information house isn't necessary.
22018-05-17 13:19:39 UTCbhousel Welcome to OpenStreetMap! I fixed the house outlines and removed the extra "house" name. I do recommend that you try out the iD editor (it is designed for beginners) and take the 15 minute tutorial to mapping. Happy mapping!

12018-04-27 19:43:24 UTCGITNE Please do not add `addr:postcode` tags to `highway`s. What you meant to add was the `postal_code` tag. `addr:postcode` is for specifying address information on buildings and facilities only. Please use the `postal_code` tag.
22018-04-27 20:07:04 UTCGITNE Btw, asking out of pure curiosity: Since when has been Bing Streetside licensed for use in OpenStreetMap?
32018-04-27 20:37:33 UTCiandees It isn't.
42018-04-27 20:39:44 UTCbhousel hey GITNE, Mapbox has an agreement which allows Bing Streetside sourced detections to be used for contributions to OSM. Some more information is available here:

62018-04-29 18:39:40 UTCSomeoneElse @bhousel It would help to document the process in the wiki, I think - neither https://www.openstreetmap.org/user/daniel-j-h/diary/43242 nor https://github.com/mapbox/mapping/issues/349 explain things very well.

This team is using the turn restriction editor in iD, which I built and am very familiar with, so if there is an issue with the data b...

12017-10-09 18:48:02 UTCbhousel Thanks for adding these houses! People in OSM definitely prefer when the buildings are drawn with nice square corners, so try typing "S" to make the buildings look a little better. Also, I recommend you complete the iD walkthrough for more editing best practices. Happy Mapping! :)
12017-08-26 14:45:26 UTCbhousel Welcome to OSM! I took a look at your edits and they look great, thanks!
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...

12017-05-25 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!

12017-04-13 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 ...

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.

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!...

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.

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!

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..

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...

22015-11-06 15:35:31 UTCbhousel This is how I do my penance for iD walkthrough bugs. :-)
