Changeset No. Date Contributor Comment
12017-04-26 09:49:16 UTCmueschel Hi,
could you check the tagging changes? E.g. 'ref:-2001-02-12' is not a valid key. There should be a double '--' when using dates according to the wiki.

Cheers, Jan
22017-04-27 08:35:01 UTCfgouget As far as I can tell the wiki says to use " key:-date = value", and that the use of '--' is outdated: "An older version of ISO 8601 used the double hyphen to replace omitted years in partial dates".

There is no need to create another one at the restaurant
22017-04-25 17:51:27 UTCmueschel Hi,
I'm not aware of any tool that makes use of these tags. For most applications the tagged address was unusable. The existence of another node close by with address information is not sufficient to find the actual address of this POI.
The only case how addresses of another object can be used on...
32017-04-26 06:30:46 UTCdgitto It is the tool that have to follow (use) a schema. Not the tag schema follow some tools.
Is normal that no tools exist, when a schema starts to be used.
42017-04-26 08:07:33 UTCmueschel Until this schema has been adopted, we have to stick to the old scheme, otherwise we lose information. I.e. both tags have to exist in parallel.
But, I really doubt that any tool will use this tagging, based on a 4 year old draft without even an RFC.
52017-04-26 09:20:24 UTClenny32 It seems to me that an address should be unique (it exists with or without POI) it is an object in its own right. Many POIs have no address.
If it is the same node, when the POI disappears or moves, the address may be deleted or moved with the poi by the inattentive contributor. Contact information...
12017-04-25 15:09:21 UTCmueschel Hi,
could you have a look to 40 trees added in this changeset? They have the tag "crown_type:=I"
Note the ':' in the key which shouldn't be there. Could you have a look and fix that?
Cheers, Jan
22017-04-27 08:44:19 UTCtaxi301 Hi .
This is a proposal how to improve the tagging of trees (natural=tree) for the use in 3D-applications.

I was curious if it would show up in 3D, I would improve on type = palm

12017-04-25 15:08:07 UTCmueschel Hi,
this changeset created 9 relations with no common tags - could you check this and replace the foreign keys with common ones if necesseary?

Cheers, Jan
12017-04-24 21:36:00 UTCAthalis Hi, beim way 407255155 wolltest du wahrscheinlich wie bei den anderen Wegen das Komma durch einen Punkt austauschen? Sieht aus als ob der Punkt verloren gegangen ist ;)
22017-04-24 21:47:00 UTCmueschel Ja, der Verdacht liegt nahe ;-) Danke für den Hinweis, ich habe es korrigiert.
12017-04-24 10:47:58 UTCmueschel Hi,
could you check this node, it has a strange tag:
80-84= 41-55

Cheers, Jan
12017-04-24 10:42:49 UTCmueschel Hi,
you added some strange tags to objects, e.g.
"Market = Sub Post Office" and several more. What is the meaning of this?

Please have a look to the wiki to find out how common features like shops have to be tagged to be shown on the map.
12017-04-22 15:17:14 UTCdamjang Ok, but so the wiki must be corrected: :-)
22017-04-23 13:32:49 UTCmueschel You're right. Looks like somebody wants to distinguish between phone service in Italian language (:it) and an phone number to be reached from Italy only (:IT). Kind of makes sense but is hard to remember.
32017-04-23 21:37:35 UTCdamjang Bacause this is a phone number free only usable from Italy, if for you is ok, I will rechange to upper chars (phone:IT)
42017-04-24 09:36:57 UTCmueschel Yes, sure. It was my mistake.
12017-04-23 10:47:38 UTCmueschel Hi,
schaust du bei diesem Weg nochmal nach den beiden lanes* Tags? Da ist etwas schiefgegangen.

Gruss, Jan
12017-04-22 11:15:39 UTCmueschel Hi,
the correct tag "addr:housenumber" was changed to the wrong tag "adr:housenumber" on 18.000 buildings in this city. Some of these changes where done in this changeset.
Could you fix that - or let me know if you need help with it.

Cheers, Jan
12017-04-21 08:47:09 UTCmueschel Hi,
kannst du nochmal nach dem Tagging schauen '_vertical' ist ein ungewöhnlicher Key.

Gruß, Jan
12017-04-20 19:00:32 UTCmueschel Hi,
could you explain the "housename" on this building?

Cheers, Jan
12017-04-20 18:56:29 UTCmueschel Hallo,
kannst du nochmal über diese 3 Relationen schauen? Eine ist nicht geschlossen, alle drei haben keinen Namen

12017-04-20 10:40:59 UTCmueschel Hi,
you tagged some buildings with "building:wall" and "building:roof". I replaced these tags with the common building:material and roof:material keys. These are in use in many places and are defined in the wiki.

Cheers, Jan
22017-04-20 13:51:21 UTChbrown14 Hi - Thanks! I feel so silly about this tagging mistake. I'll be sure to fix the remaining tag mistakes in this area.
12017-04-15 16:38:39 UTCmueschel Hi,
it's a bit strange that this railway in Greece uses German signaling. Could you check that?
22017-04-19 03:44:15 UTCLowe253 Hi Jan,
Greek Railways do actually uses german signalling although this might sound bizarre to people. This is not a full replication of ESO, but a lite version (no train protection system, no electrified rails until late 90's and so on). If you try wikipedia you can check also the historical reas...
32017-04-19 09:04:14 UTCmueschel Alright, I wasn't aware of this. I stumbled across it because of a spelling mistake: railway:signal:main:f should be railway:signal:main:form, I think.
42017-04-19 10:42:03 UTCLowe253 You are right, my bad...
12017-04-18 10:57:07 UTCmueschel Hi,
these POIs have some foreign tags that could (and should) be converted to usual OSM tags, e.g.

Could you have a look?
Cheers, Jan
22017-04-18 10:59:23 UTCRps333 I will have a look. thanks

12017-04-13 08:36:09 UTCmueschel Hi,
you added some nodes with tags light "light_source". Street lamps usually are tagged with "highway=street_lamp", which should be there additional to your tags. Would you mind adding it?

Cheers, Jan
22017-04-13 14:19:51 UTCMRPockets I specifically chose not to tag them as "highway=street_lamp" since they are not street lamps. They illuminate primarily the grass and sidewalks, not streets. I could not find any better tags for non-street lamps than simply "light_source=lantern." If I am misunderstanding the us...
32017-04-16 19:59:08 UTCmueschel I don't think we do distinguish between street lamps and path lamps. Until we come up with a distinction, I opt for tagging them with the common tag to make them visible on existing maps.
12017-04-16 16:32:48 UTCmueschel Hi,
something went wrong with this import. The nodes are spread over the ocean...
Also, "Adresse" and "Nom" are no common tags in OSM and should be properly tagged.

12017-04-14 11:09:01 UTCmueschel Hi,
you added more than 6000 buildings with a misspelled house number tag: "adr:housenumber" instead of "addr:housenumber". Could you have a look and fix that? Let me know if you need help.

12017-04-12 11:29:51 UTCmueschel Hi,
there are six nodes like this one:
They don't have any common tag. Could you have a look?

12017-04-12 10:36:21 UTCmueschel Hi, could you check the tagging of these 3 rivers?
The tag "Barranco del Pico = Rio Nuerna" looks a bit strange.
22017-04-12 11:44:39 UTCdalop Thanks for the advise, It was my mistake! I just fixed that now
12017-04-12 08:51:47 UTCmueschel Hi,

12017-04-11 19:52:02 UTCBob Moin!
Eine no_entry restriction (hier: Deine Änderung an der Relation 6848355) kann mehrere from-Mitglieder haben, so steht es im Wiki. Das gelöschte Mitglied habe ich daher wiederhergestellt. Das aufgestellte Zeichen 267 betrifft beide Richtungen.
22017-04-11 20:02:08 UTCmueschel Auf den meisten Wiki-Seiten steht "exakt 1", auch auf der Deutschen. Nur die tschechische und englische Seite erlauben mehrere für no_entry.

Ich würde die Relation vielleicht lieber verdoppeln, je eine für jeden from-Weg. Wer weiß, welcher Router damit Probleme hat.
32017-04-12 10:42:00 UTCPeilscheibe @mueschel: Die no_entry und no_exit-restrictions wurden ja genau zu dem Zweck so definiert, das man eben nicht mehrere Relationen braucht, wo eine genügt. Wenn ein Router nicht mit mehreren from- bzw. to-ways klarkommt, darf er gerne dazulernen.
42017-04-12 15:54:14 UTCBob Moin zusammen!
Die deutsche Wiki-Seite ist dazu leider wohl veraltet. Sie kennt die no_entry und no_exit restriction (noch) nicht. Die kamen erst 2011 hinzu und die Übersetzung hat noch keiner angepackt.
12017-04-09 10:49:25 UTCmueschel Hallo,
du hast hier eine Tags neu erfunden, die sonst nirgends verwendet werden:


Bitte schau mal im Wiki nach den üblichen Tags:
22017-04-10 07:01:55 UTCFrank Bielig Die Tags gibt es teilweise schon. Leider sind viele Tags mit entweder :both:, :right: oder :left: versehen. Hier trifft aber keine dieser Varianten zu.

62017-04-10 11:48:00 UTCmueschel Ja, ideal ist das vorhandene Schema nicht. Ich denke, sowas sollte mal in größerer Runde diskutiert werden, z.B. im Forum mit ein paar gut ausgewählten Beispielen.
Das beste Tagging nützt ja am Ende nichts, wenn es die Auswerter nicht umsetzen wollen oder können.

72017-04-10 11:54:52 UTCDaveF Although this entity was tagged indirectly in the first place (it should be shop not amenity), you made it worse by removing any primary tag & substituting with a sole sub-tag. Sub-tags are 'adjective' tags which help describe the details of the objects.

Also, it looks like the images you use are misaligned, many of the buildings are intersecting the road (which seems to be in the right place according to GPS traces)

22017-03-22 12:05:19 UTCmweper Hi @mueschel.

I put both for the do...
32017-03-22 12:22:39 UTCmueschel Hi,
alright. I would go with the 'floor_light' version. Please add an entry to the wiki:
Recently, a similar installation was made in the Netherlands.
42017-03-26 20:06:58 UTCmweper Is it okay like this?
12017-03-22 11:29:48 UTCmueschel Hi,
in your changesets I found a huge set of wrong tags, like these:
High way = Footpath
Water ways = intermediate
farm land \t= farm

Please have a look to the wiki how paths, rivers and buildings are tagged and use only these tags. Everything else is useless, because none of our software ca...
12017-03-21 11:54:57 UTCmueschel Hi,
you used the tag 'addr:contact = yes' on many POIs. This is a new tag and not defined anywhere - what does it mean?
22017-03-21 12:39:15 UTCTomas Straupis It is a temporary tag to mark duplicate addresses until contact:* scheme is approved or at least we (Lithuanian mapping community) come to agreement that support of contact:* is good enough. For the time being f.e. iD editor does not support contact:*

12017-03-20 09:38:58 UTCmueschel Partially reverted. Reason: features do not exist.
12017-03-20 09:37:30 UTCmueschel I reverted this changeset. Reason: This is a stream, not a man_made=breakwater
12017-03-20 09:36:26 UTCmueschel I reverted this changeset. Reason: This is not a park.
12017-03-19 15:12:25 UTCmueschel Hi,
could you have a look to the spelling of tags? E.g. I found
'electrifie' which should be 'electrified'
name_fa -> name:fa
full_name_ -> full_name
and few more. I corrected some of them but I don't know if I catched all.

Cheers, Jan
12017-03-19 15:03:00 UTCmueschel Hi,
welcome to OSM!
Please make sure you use only keys which are described in the Wiki. If you use other keys (like ones in Russian), no software can understand it and e.g. display it on a map.

could you check this node:

hig=yes looks like a mistake

12017-03-19 14:44:48 UTCmueschel Hallo,
du hast hier bei einigen Tags ein '-' vorangestellt um sie zu 'deaktivieren'. Normalerweise benutzt man dafür einen der lifecycle prefixes, wie hier beschrieben:
Wahrscheinlich passt 'disused:' hier.

22017-03-19 15:41:39 UTCProtoxenus Ja, meine Intention war, das das (wahrscheinlich defekte) Molenfeuer nicht gerendert wird. Ich gehe davon aus, das es zu Saisonbeginn wieder in Betrieb geht.

12017-03-17 12:09:40 UTCmueschel Hi,
this area doesn't have any valid tag. Could you check this?

Cheers, Jan
22017-03-17 14:38:12 UTCjohanemilsson I placed the leisure tag in a relation. I should probably just remove the other tags as they are not really necessary.
32017-03-18 12:49:02 UTCmueschel The relation is fine, but those tags should be deleted if they are not needed. Maybe you want to keep one tag with an ID to be able to match this object again with your external data source.
12017-03-18 12:46:47 UTCmueschel Hi, you used the new key 'name:Zh_py' on 59 ways. the common version is 'name:zh_py', used 900 times already. Would you mind changing this?

12017-03-17 11:53:09 UTCmueschel Hi, the trees you add have a strange tag: "2016 = 298". I corrected some yesterday, but there are more you added today. I guess it should be "ref = 2016.298". Could you have a look and fix that?

12017-03-16 11:37:19 UTCmueschel Hi,

building:roof should be roof:material

Those tags are described in the wiki, please check the other tags as well.

12017-03-14 11:51:58 UTCmueschel Do these streets really have the German name as part of their official name? If not, please use name:de for the German name.
12017-03-14 11:34:58 UTCmueschel Hi,
you used the keys "vertical height", "vertical_height", "vertical_rise" to map the height difference of aerialways. These tags are not used in any other place. Typically, start and end node of the aerialway are tagged with 'ele' to mark their respective height.
22017-03-14 18:05:15 UTCIrakli Ika Ok I will use ele insted, thank you.
12017-03-14 11:29:51 UTCmueschel Hi,

12017-03-10 08:17:06 UTCmueschel Hi,
There are several 'linz:' tags on thia node - was this a mistake?
22017-03-10 08:41:19 UTCworldwidewolford It looks like those tags predate my edit. I am on and have been editing on mobile, so any research you can do into those tags would be great, but they were not added by me.
32017-03-10 15:55:24 UTCmueschel Before your edit the keys were in upper case, e.g. LINZ:layer. These are very common in NZ.
You changed it to lower case - might be a software issue with OsmAnd?
42017-03-10 20:31:14 UTCworldwidewolford Oh wow. This must be an issue with OsmAnd. I will send a bug report about that. Could you fix those tags for me? Thanks for picking that up.
52017-03-11 13:41:59 UTCmueschel Changed the tags back.
12017-03-11 13:37:26 UTCmueschel Hi,

(and several more)
12017-03-10 09:29:41 UTCmueschel Hi,
you used some new landcover tags in your edits to specify density and age. I think it would be a good idea to describe these tags in the wiki by writing a proposal for them.

Cheers, Jan
22017-03-10 14:15:16 UTCigitov Hi,
thanks for comment.
These landcover tags are still "raw", not final.
In the Russian-speaking OSM-community there is a discussion on the scheme for tagging landscapes (woodlands, shrubs, etc.). Much can change. Writing proposal still premature.

ich habe das feature hier gelesen:

32017-03-07 15:15:54 UTCmueschel Dieses Tag wird für Parkstreifen entlang von Straßen verwendet, nicht für Parkplätze. Mir ist es deswegen aufgefallen, weil du "conditions" mit "s" schriebst.
42017-03-07 19:15:22 UTCKeineHeimat Upps, ändere ich die Tage - bin im Moment unterwegs!

12017-03-07 09:23:15 UTCmueschel Please don't change the established wikipedia tag to things like

12017-03-05 15:34:23 UTCmueschel Hi,

woher stammen denn die ganzen name Tags? Sicherlich nicht von Bing ;) Kannst du noch eine Quelle angeben (hier im Changeset Kommentar sollte reichen) damit das in Zukunft noch nachvollziehbar ist?
22017-03-05 12:44:19 UTCmueschel Sieht für mich so aus als sollten zumindest die Flurnamen revertiert werden solange die Legalität der Quelle nicht klar ist.

du hast Gebäude doppelt (zb Hausnummer 33, 77 und 78) sowie Linien (ways) und Punkte (Nodes) ohne Tags erfasst.
Die Kapelle ist nun 3x vorhanden: einmal von mir; einmal von dir mit Tag und einmal ohne.

12017-03-02 11:40:04 UTCmueschel Hallo,
kannst du diesen Hydranten nochmal überprüfen? "fire_pressure" ist kein sinnvolles Tag. Außerdem werden Kommazahlen wie im Englischen mit Punkt geschrieben.
Gruß, Jan
22017-03-02 13:40:12 UTCkphklaus doofer Fehler, habe ich korrigiert.
viele Grüße
12017-03-02 11:36:25 UTCmueschel Hi,
could you check this edit? You added a bus route that consists of a parking lot only.

Cheers, Jan
12017-03-02 11:33:28 UTCmueschel Hi,
could you check this area? Looks like something went wrong with the name tag.

Cheers, Jan
22017-03-02 13:37:05 UTCFredrikLindseth Ah, a typo. I fixed it now :-)
12017-03-02 11:31:56 UTCmueschel Hallo,
der Key "recycling:opening_hours" wird außer hier nirgends verwendet. Üblicherweise wird "opening_hours" ohne Prefix verwendet. Würdest du das anpassen?

Gruß, Jan
22017-03-02 12:10:19 UTCbezin Hi, ja, völlig richtig. Da hab ich gepennt. Passe ich an – auch für die Änderungen in Überruhr-Holthausen.
32017-03-03 08:31:52 UTCbezin Gilt entsprechend auch für recycling:operator, der so nicht existiert, sondern auch ohne Prefix verwendet wird. Auch das passe ich an.
12017-03-01 11:30:06 UTCmueschel Hi,
could you check the spelling of keys in your latest changesets? E.g. I saw
water tank :housenumber
water tank: housenumber
water tank:street

There should be no spaces in the key and 'water_tank' has an underscore.

Cheers, Jan
12017-03-01 11:26:54 UTCmueschel HI,
could you check the tagging of some of these objects? They have russian keys only and no common keys used in other places in OSM.

Cheers, Jan
22017-03-03 01:02:50 UTCJake Strine Yes, it's a mistake. Fixed.
12017-03-01 11:24:51 UTCmueschel Hi,
kannst du hier mal nach dem Tagging schauen?
Da steht " 7710052 = underground"

danke für den Hinweis... das hat sich der Copy - Paste Fehlerteufel eingeschlichen.
12017-02-28 15:13:35 UTCmuralito Would'nt it be better to use tag "rooms" instead of "number_of_apartments"?
22017-02-28 15:20:24 UTCmueschel I just corrected the obvious spelling mistake in the key.
'number_of_apartments' is already used 1800 times, so I consider it a valid tag. I don't know if there are cases where someone distinguished between number of rooms and number of apartments on a single object.
12017-02-28 11:57:01 UTCmueschel Hi,
if you want to tag names in foreign languages: The language has to be given as ISO-639 code, e.g. has the code 'cr' and Innu has 'moe'.

Cheers, Jan
12017-02-28 11:50:52 UTCmueschel Hi,
welcome to OSM. Most of the tags you put on this node are rather useless, because they don't follow established tagging styles. Please have a look to the Wiki, e.g. There is a list of common tags.

Cheers, Jan
22017-02-28 15:10:59 UTCmuralito And/Or maybe ask for help to the Iocal community.

22017-02-27 20:13:39 UTCmueschel I think that this changeset has to be reverted - we can not make sure that the license of this data is compatible with ODbL if you don't disclose your source.
12017-02-27 11:52:16 UTCmueschel Hi,
what is the meaning of the tag "hiter=ter" you put on several ways here?

22017-02-27 12:44:47 UTCff5722 That should be highway=tertiary
I sometimes make typos and JOSM keeps suggesting those until restart. I will correct it asap.
12017-02-27 11:50:53 UTCmueschel Hi,
you managed to get three spelling mistakes in this turn restriction:

Actually, you don't need this relation, it is better to add access tags to the short service way. E.g. access=emergency.
12017-02-27 11:48:18 UTCmueschel Hi,
this way got two distance tags, one is misspelled. Could you check which one is right?

If there are two values given, you can add them to the same tag, separated by ';'

12017-02-27 11:46:46 UTCmueschel Hi,
all the objects have the tag "Horta = Vella" - was this a mistake?

Cheers, Jan
22017-02-27 21:57:21 UTCpacopac Corrected! Was a mistake. Thanks for pay attention
12017-02-27 11:44:25 UTCmueschel Hi,
you used highway=project here - this tag is not used often. There are other values that are defined in the wiki, maybe you can change the tagging to one of these?

Cheers, Jan
22017-02-27 13:27:43 UTCbibi6 Hi, I'm going to change these to "planned". Thanks ;)
32017-02-27 13:34:49 UTCbibi6 ... I actually decided to use "proposed", as the way may change - but it will probably not. Wait and see ^^
12017-02-26 13:08:47 UTCmueschel Hallo,

Something went wrong with the name tag.
Cheers, Jan
12017-02-23 11:35:23 UTCmueschel Hi,
you used the keys railway:date_start and :date_end. The usual key for this is railway:start_date and :end_date.
Could you have a look and correct this?
Cheers, Jan
22017-02-26 16:20:44 UTCsfrank Hi,
I fixed it. Was accidently used, because first I used date:start and date:end.
12017-02-23 11:23:38 UTCmueschel Hi,
these 62 buildings have a spelling mistake in the tags: 'add:province' instead of 'addr:province'. Could you have a look and fix this?

42017-02-26 19:48:11 UTCedvac Hi:
If this is an import and haven't been discussed, it should be reverted inmediatly.
Imports have to be discussed with the local community and with the imports list, and should be documented and the source compatible with the ODbL.
52017-02-28 15:03:58 UTCmuralito No doubt it is an import. It should be reverted, or at least discussed, fixed and the resulting new tags documented.

92017-03-08 12:05:29 UTCmuralito Hello Bgabor:

If the terms & conditions are the same as stated in , I'm not sure if the d) paragraph is compatible with ODbL.

Maybe in this case we need explicit permission from the owner to import their data into OSM.
102017-03-08 12:39:44 UTCSomeoneElse @Bgabor,
I'd suggest having this discussion on the "imports" list - there people will be able to advise you about licenses.
See for where this import was first mentioned there.

12017-02-21 10:15:51 UTCmueschel Hi,
you added several buildings on top of already existing ones. Could you have a look and correct these mistakes?
Additionally, all tags you added have no meaning in OSM - only well-defined tags as described in the Wiki can be used. Examples:
Capacity \t=80
Condition \t=average
Levels \t=1
12017-02-18 18:04:18 UTCmueschel Hi,
from this changeset there are still hundreds or thousand untagged and unconnected nodes in the database. As they are completely useless - could you take some time to clean this up?
Let me / the community now if you have trouble or need help!

22017-02-20 13:41:05 UTCIvan Garcia Could you send me the link of some ofthe unconnected nodes? I will take a look at it.
thks for the alert.
32017-02-20 13:50:27 UTCmueschel Here is a link to Keepright tool - this link just shows this type of unconnected node - you have to move the map to see more errors, only ~300 are shown at a time. Actually, they seem to be from different changesets, but all by 'importer2015'.
42017-02-20 14:07:36 UTCIvan Garcia You are right. I will have time from next week to remove those.

welcome to OSM. You put many tags on the objects you added - but unfortunately they can't be used by any OSM based software. Most of the keys you used are not well-defined and are not understood by other users. Please have a look at the wiki to find out how e.g. buildings are commonly tagged.

22017-02-17 08:26:48 UTCwmyrda Hi,
It is indeed. Not sure what I meant there, but probably just a copy&paste error when I wanted to add "name:pl=Svätý Jur" just like the name in polish Wikipedia is. I'll fix that one to it.

12017-02-16 11:49:41 UTCmueschel Hi,
you added many buildings with the tag "building=yes=house" - could you fix that? "building = house" would be correct.

12017-02-15 08:47:36 UTCmueschel Hi,
you uploaded some buildings with a missing building=yes tag. Also, there are some with two building:levels tags, one is misspelled. Could you have a look and fix these issues?

12017-02-14 21:30:45 UTCmueschel Hi,
please watch out for the correct spelling of tags, e.g. "destinarion = Ponta Grossa, Retorno"
I found several times a spelling mistake in 'destination' or ':lanes' - I corrected them where I found them.
Secondly, the normal separator between destinations is a ';', not a comma.

12017-02-14 21:02:46 UTCmueschel Hi,
I found keys like "destination:lanes:ref" in your edits. The correct order is "destination:ref:lanes" - :lanes comes at the end. I fixed that for you.

Here is a generic string to show the order for all those suffixes:
22017-02-16 12:23:38 UTCmweper Oops. Thanks for notifying me and fix it. I did not realize.

If it looks like mistake, then what I must write to indicate the presence of tire correctly?
32017-02-13 19:12:52 UTCmueschel Can you describe what it is? A shop where you can buy tires? That would be shop = tyres
42017-02-13 19:17:51 UTCalexhyd18 It's a place where where anyone can make a mountage of tires
52017-02-13 19:32:59 UTCmueschel Ok, now I got it. I would tag it as:

shop = car_repair (Even if it is not a shop - to give the category of the object)
service = tyres
self_service = yes
fee = no / yes
description = (describe it in your own words, Russian is fine)

12017-02-13 11:38:42 UTCmueschel Hi,
you put a non-standard tag in Russian language on this node. Unfortunately this doesn't help OSM, because software can only understand well-defined tags. Could you have a look to the OSM wiki to find a better suited tag for this? man_made=pier could be one of them.

12017-02-08 15:13:28 UTCrskedgell I can find a reference for xxx:inscription_date=* in the wiki, when used in combination with heritage=* and heritage_operator=xxx, where xxx is the abbreviation for the operator, in this case he for Historic England - see
22017-02-08 15:31:07 UTCmueschel Oh, you're right.
To me this looked like the typical mistake when autocompletion failed. On the same POIs you used heritage:* as well, so this made it rather plausible. "heritage:operator" and "heritage:inscription_date" formed a nice group of tags and made a lot of sense.

32017-02-08 19:48:13 UTCmueschel Fixed in

Does it fit?

12017-02-07 22:56:02 UTCFortepc There was no reason to remove those tags. They were accurate information relevant to the POIs they were attached to.
22017-02-08 11:49:11 UTCmueschel see
OSM is not a map of non-existing graphics in some game.
32017-02-08 17:27:39 UTCFortepc I was not mapping ingame graphics. I was tagging real world objects referencing that they also exist in the ARG. It's just as relevant as referencing their facebook pages that you didn't remove.
12017-02-06 11:35:47 UTCmueschel Please stop adding ingress and pokemon features. OSM does not contain such ficitional objects.
22017-02-07 22:52:17 UTCFortepc @Mueschel you're suggesting OSM doesn't contain Freedom Park? you're sorely mistaken. Sorry for the confusion but my changeset updated the accuracy of the park on the ground, as well as added relevant information in the tags.

Thanks for your concern, but try again next time with that high horse ...
32017-02-08 11:42:34 UTCmueschel Is Freedom Park fictional? Can I see it when walking there? So yes, it should be in OSM. Can I see Pokemons when I walk there? No, they are just existing in a software on your mobile phone.

Thanks for not insulting other mappers.
42017-02-08 17:27:04 UTCFortepc I was not mapping "Pokemons" I was tagging the park as also being represented in the Augmented Space, the same as you'd tag the park's website or social pages, or any of the many tags on this part that are a non-physical fact about the park.
52017-02-08 17:30:03 UTCFortepc Look at my edit history, I'm not some token kid trying to vandalize the map. I care about accuracy. I'm seeking to use my local knowledge to map with the greatest accuracy possible. With as much information about the POIs as possible.
62017-02-08 18:29:34 UTCNakaner Hi Fortepc,

adding arg:ingress=portalfarm, arg:pokemongo=pokestopfarm and arg:pokemongo_1=nest does not meet our guidelines about verifiability (also known as the "On The Ground Rule"). Please only add information to OpenStreetMap which everyone can VERIFY ON THE GROUND.

72017-02-08 18:30:46 UTCNakaner PS Freedom Park has a very strange tagging with dozens of uppercase keys which also is against our rules but that does not make your edits better. The edit which added those uppercase keys might be treated the same way as you.
82017-02-09 17:19:12 UTCFortepc @Nakaner, Yes. I am very familiar with the OSM's on the ground rule. But rule is for mapping things, not adding information to the tags of things. And I am also following all of the rules present on the Pokemon Go blogpost you referred to. I'm improving accuracy of what is on the ground, as well as ...
12017-02-08 11:38:10 UTCmueschel Hi,
you used the tag "Building features=building" on 207 buildings - this is not a defined tag in OSM. What is its purpose?

Cheers, Jan
22017-02-08 14:39:52 UTCBgabor Well, seems by mistake - mixed the tag what was used in ID.
12017-02-07 12:25:43 UTCmueschel Hi,
please don't add junction=roundabout to circular streets without knowing the situation on ground. E.g. this one is no roundabout (as described in the german note on it)

Also, all your tags have a spelling mistake 'jonction' instead of 'junction'
12017-02-07 11:51:15 UTCmueschel Hi,
there are ~15 ways with a spelling mistake "shouder" instead of "shoulder". Could you have a look?

Cheers, Jan
22017-02-07 13:02:57 UTCkre3d Oops. Should be better now. Thanks for pointing it out!
12017-02-05 21:58:44 UTCmueschel Hallo,
du hast hier vor einiger Zeit Relationen angelegt, denen das type-Tag fehlt. Kannst du das noch ergänzen?
Gruß, Jan

22017-02-06 08:44:39 UTCNakaner Hallo Jan,

12017-02-05 21:44:05 UTCmueschel Wurde hier die Ampel tatsächlich wieder abgebaut?
Vor ein paar Monaten war sie noch da.
12017-02-05 21:30:31 UTCmueschel Hallo Michael,
ist zwar schon lange her, aber: Was befindet sich eigentlich an den "Planeten-"Knoten? Nur ein Name ist so nichtssagend. Eine Informationstafel oder so? Dann könnte man das entsprechend taggen.
Gruß, Jan
12017-02-05 21:28:00 UTCmueschel Hallo,
vorher stammen diese Namen? Informationen aus anderen Karten dürfen in der Regel nicht verwendet werden (Lizenzen!)

Außerdem stimmt das Tagging so nicht: Ein Knoten nur mit einem "name"-Tag beschreibt nicht, um was es sich handelt.

Gruß, Jan
12017-02-05 14:19:09 UTCmueschel Hi,
why did you remove all the good tags again and re-added many tags that don't seem to belong to OSM?

32017-02-05 18:33:56 UTCmueschel JOSM shows the marker on the wrong side, because there is no way to decide which is the right one by looking at one outer way only. As soon as you download the whole multi-polygon, it switches to the correct side.
There is no "backwards" with respect to the direction of outer ways of mult...
42017-02-05 18:40:08 UTCaiwetir I saw that just now in JOSM, I was obviously editing on the web application. When you look at it on the web application it indeed looks backwards whether there is a backwards or not.
52017-02-05 19:04:39 UTCmueschel The problem is the same for both editors, they just can't decide what is inner and outer without loading the full relation - in case of iD I don't know if this is even possible. When handling huge multi-polygons like this, JOSM is a much better choice. E.g. because you can selectively load the fores...
62017-02-05 19:40:16 UTCaiwetir I could use help, changing all the tags is easy enough but I just took a closer look at the overlapping areas and it's pretty complex.

72017-02-05 20:25:59 UTCaiwetir As it turns out, much has changed in that region since a land purchase just a few years ago. I'm going to delete the Gilchrist and start anew with new shapefiles.
12017-02-05 14:15:16 UTCmueschel Hi,
could you check the tagging of this node? Looks like something went wrong with copy and paste.

Cheers, Jan
12017-02-05 12:57:11 UTCmueschel Hi,
the tagging of this node doesn't seem right.
It is now a sports center, a group home, a foundation and a locality in the same place.
Could you correct this?
12017-02-04 15:32:00 UTCmueschel Hi,
you added 45 villages with some strange tags, was this a mistake?

Cheers, Jan
22017-02-04 15:39:01 UTCkatpatuka hopefully not ;)

The names are from the 11000 villages file mentioned on
32017-02-04 15:41:12 UTCmueschel I didn't mean adding the villages, just these tags. They don't look like they belong to OSM and are not used in other places.
42017-02-04 16:52:19 UTCkatpatuka well yes - they are in the original file and I left them as is - comparable to other for osm useless tags like gns:dsg etc. originating from imports

52017-02-03 11:42:01 UTCmueschel "Then hell break loose" - Just because people remind you on the way things should be done in OSM? Have fun putting tags on nodes - nobody will be able to make any use of them as long as you don't write documentation for it.

22017-01-17 21:43:55 UTCtrial +1, please at least describe what you want to do. Except BS I mean.
32017-02-02 16:59:13 UTCStereo Of course it's partly meant as a joke. At the SotM EU, we came across this strange box, and decided to dedicate it as a monument to RichardF. The RichardF box does exist, and the physical properties are all correct. Someone even slapped a "Surveyed by OSM" sticker on it.

It is an exampl...

72017-02-02 20:03:12 UTCtrial Right. Time to cleanup!
12017-02-02 11:28:28 UTCmueschel Hi,
could you check the tagging of this road?

The name tag is somehow strange.
22017-02-02 14:33:38 UTCgezginrocker I've corrected it, thanks for your attention.
12017-02-02 07:52:19 UTCeric_ Whitehouse Terrace being part of the north side of Grange Loan, I changed it into name:left as it was originally (i.e. before a contributor changed it into name:South Side). Thanks anyway to have spotted this error.

32017-02-21 19:16:18 UTCeric_ No problem (sorry to answer so late).
12017-01-31 12:04:01 UTCmueschel Hi,
there is no need to translate tags like "tourism:fr = chambres d'hôte" - The translation is the same for all tourism = guest_house tags world-wide and can be done automatically by the software showing the data.

22017-02-01 11:10:02 UTCphilh-591 Thank you for your comment. I'll remove the unnecessary tag.

However, I'll carry on tagging specifically bakers' shops in France as
shop:fr = boulanger, patissier
shop:fr = pain, patissier
according to whether the shop displays "Boulanger" or "Pain". This i...
32017-02-01 11:46:17 UTCmueschel Sure, if it provides additional information, an additional tag makes sense.

As you describe a sub-group of bakeries, I would opt for a tagging like this:
shop = bakery
bakery = boulanger
42017-02-04 14:33:33 UTCphilh-591 OK. Actually I'll find out if the French User Group have a recommended practice on tagging for bakeries. If not, I'll put forward the method
shop=bakery; bakery=boulanger
shop=bakery; bakery=dépôt de pain
52017-02-04 16:29:50 UTCtrial
mueschel advice is good. Prevent using multiple keys as long as possible.
So if needed; I would add:
produced_on_site = yes/no
See [OSM-talk-fr]
12017-01-31 15:48:03 UTCmueschel Hallo,
das Tag "maxstay@Mi,Sa = 60" funktioniert so nicht, weil nicht per Software auswertbar.

I've just corrected it.
12017-01-31 11:43:02 UTCmueschel Hallo,
man_made:levels finde ich jetzt nicht so gelungen als neuen Tag - Stockwerke hat so eine Säule ja nicht.

Außerdem gibt es eher keinen Grund hier einen eigenen Namespace mit man_made: zu benutzen - auf was sollte sich height sonst beziehen?

12017-01-25 12:15:06 UTCmueschel There are again 1500++ buildings with wrong tags. Could you fix the tagging before uploading to OSM? There is just no need to distribute this information to hundreds of users and then changing it a few days later.


Btw, the source given in your changeset is wrong.
22017-01-25 23:59:32 UTCAndrew Matheny Fixed. These are fields that are dropped/mapped to OSM tags before import, but it sometimes doesn't happen with the repetitive process :)

32017-01-24 22:35:39 UTCmueschel Dann lösche ich das mal, da hast du wahrscheinlich aus Versehen etwas ausgewählt. Bei "normalen" Kreiseln ist die Angabe ja überflüssig.

SUR=GRO looks like a mistake

12017-01-21 20:13:24 UTCmueschel Hi,
could you check the tagging of this relation?
I don't understand the key "-- = 7"

12017-01-21 20:10:55 UTCmueschel Hi,
there is a spelling mistake in the fcc key on this node:
Could you check and correct it?
22017-01-24 19:55:10 UTCmicahcochran I have corrected the misspelled tag. Thanks!
12017-01-21 20:06:14 UTCmueschel Hi,
you added some ref-Tags with varying spelling. Could you use a consistent tag?
Common practice seems to be ref:EUNIS and ref:EUR27
22017-01-21 21:19:55 UTCfrancoLI First I apologize for my bad English. I'm using google translator.
I thought that tags were not case sensitive.
I will try to correct.
the difference between EUR 27 and EUNIS is how subtle. EUR27 refer basically to the areas of Applied directives Habitat, while EUNIS is more general and sometimes...
12017-01-21 20:02:01 UTCmueschel Hi,
I found many ways with strange tags, like this one:

Could you have a look and correct these?

Cheers, Jan
22017-01-22 05:21:10 UTCdnwilson Thanks for letting me know I have fixed it.
It was caused by cut and past going very wrong.
12017-01-21 19:56:53 UTCmueschel Here is another new way with strange tags:

22017-01-21 20:21:31 UTCpiligab Hi Mueschel.
I proceeded to change the tags. Thanks for your feedback.
12017-01-21 18:08:21 UTCmueschel Hi,
I found tags like
sidewalk hazard
travel hazard
trip hazard
on several objects.
This might be a good description of something,
but is not usable in OSM - no software can understand
it. Please have a look to the wiki about common

12017-01-21 13:31:58 UTCmueschel Hi,
wo kommen den diese ganzen Informationen her? Von Bing, wie du angibst, sicher nicht.

Außerdem ist beim Tagging einiges schiefgelaufen.

12017-01-20 22:45:53 UTCmueschel Bitte fügen nicht blind "junction = roundabout" an Wege an, nur weil Osmose eine Warnung anzeigt. Ein roundabout muss immer mit einem entsprechenden blauen Schild ausgestattet sein, das ist bei Wendeplätzen wie diesem sicher nicht der Fall.
22017-01-20 22:50:43 UTCmueschel Hi,
please don't add "junction = roundabout" to places like this. This tag is only used in case there are the corresponding traffic signs and rules in place.
32017-01-29 18:43:50 UTCvenerdi I apologize for the error. I deduced the rules of precedence from aerial photos and I could not check for traffic signal. Thanks for your correction. In the case of closed lines that are reported as errors by Osmose it would probably be better to divide them into two parts to avoid the problem.
12017-01-20 22:28:51 UTCmueschel Hallo,

12017-01-20 22:13:30 UTCmueschel Hallo,
bei deinen Edits von Waldwegen sind hier in der Gegend sehr viele "überlappende Wege" entstanden. D.h. zwei Wege, die auf einem ganzen Stück übereinander liegen. Würdest du da nochmal einen Blick drauf werfen?
12017-01-19 11:39:47 UTCmueschel Hi,
this valley has a strange tag:
"Val Désél = Senté de la Gesa"
Is this the name?

22017-01-19 12:22:46 UTCCarlo Folini Sorry, my fault! It should be a 'name' tag.
Thanks for pointing me to this.

Can I ask you how do you discovered it?

Ciao Carlo
32017-01-19 12:51:08 UTCmueschel I wrote a small script that shows all the new keys appearing in the database:
12017-01-18 20:25:50 UTCmueschel Hi,
welcome to OSM!

You added many objects with tags like
area =yes
name =lote2

You may see that these are not shown on the map - all objects need a tag describing what they are, for example building=yes or amenity=hospital. Have a look to the OSM Wiki to find these tags.

Let me know if ...
12017-01-18 20:20:13 UTCmueschel Hallo,
du hast hier ein merkwürdiges Tag vergeben, kannst du das kontrollieren?

12017-01-18 14:19:58 UTCmueschel Hi,

12017-01-17 09:53:39 UTCmueschel Hi,
all these buildings have the key 'shrt' - is this a mistake during import? It's not used in any other place.

22017-01-17 16:16:58 UTCAndrew Matheny Jan-

Yep, this is an extra tag I bring in during the import to be able to categorize buildings that overlap multiple land uses. I've removed them from the buildings.

12017-01-16 11:39:38 UTCmueschel Hi,

OSM can only be useful if only well-defined keys are used. Please have a look in the wiki to find an appropriate key.

12017-01-15 11:58:27 UTCmueschel Hi,

22017-01-13 14:37:44 UTCsamely Hi Jan,
Can you be more specific, please? I checked it out, however, I didn't find anything special.

Thank you for your comment.

12017-01-12 11:21:34 UTCmueschel Hi,
could you review the tagging of this area? I don't know what you wanted to tag so I can't fix it.

22017-01-12 13:17:17 UTCmaldav I wanted to tag an area as an urban farm but to show comment on the use and user. It was obviously a make to delineate the area with a line.
I have now drawn an area and described it as landuse=farm, and added the comments with a spot tag. Long term I want to use coloured tags for Food Security...

12017-01-11 11:49:21 UTCmueschel Hi,
looks like you wanted to tag some opening_hours (note the spelling!) here, but the tag looks strange:

Cheers, Jan
22017-01-11 18:40:08 UTCNiels Elgaard Larsen There was an access tag saying "only wednesdays" in Danish. I thought opening_hours would be more appropriate. I fixed the typo now.
32017-01-11 18:45:05 UTCmueschel Alright. The shortest opening_hours value I ever saw ;-)
12017-01-11 11:31:39 UTCmueschel Hi,
could you check the ':name' tag of this forest? Looks like you wanted to use another key there.
22017-01-11 11:40:18 UTCSK53 Thanks it needed a source:name
12017-01-11 10:24:42 UTCmueschel Hallo,

12017-01-11 10:21:16 UTCmueschel Hi,
I found 219 hydrants with the key 'posi', which is not used in any other place.
I think that a tag like this would be more appropriate and easier to understand by others:
description = position: sidewalk

Cheers, Jan
22017-01-11 11:10:43 UTCjendrusk Hi,
Sorry - my mistake - it should be fire_hydrant:position. I'll fix it :)
12017-01-10 11:37:06 UTCmueschel Hi,
could you check / fix the tag "åå = BE", looks strange.

22017-01-10 11:43:28 UTCescada Fixed.
thanks for letting me know
12017-01-10 11:32:10 UTCmueschel Hallo,

On several of the objects you added, I saw tags like "Justice Hall = yes" or "Nasugbu Auditorium/Evacuation Center = yes". These tags can not be understood by software and should be changed to something else.
E.g. if it is the name of the object, put ...

32017-01-10 09:21:19 UTCmueschel What exactly is missing? Please give some examples.
12017-01-09 10:06:54 UTCmueschel Hi,

Btw, is all access private? E.g. you are not allowed to enter by foot?

32017-01-09 13:15:41 UTCmueschel Alright then. I just asked because many people use 'access' when they actually mean 'vehicle'.
12017-01-09 11:23:09 UTCmueschel Hi,
found the key "name:end_date" on two nodes - this tag is not used in other places. You could use name:DATE instead, see

22017-01-09 19:13:23 UTCjptolosa87 Thanks for the info: I've fixed them.

22017-01-10 16:51:51 UTCmaxerickson Fixed it. 'namep' was a typo from switching name_1 and name.

12017-01-08 13:36:47 UTCmueschel Halo,
was heißt denn "Toyota = i-Road" an vielen Häusern hier?
Das "description" tag halte ich auch für etwas merkwürdig. Warum nicht building = residential oder house?

Gruß, Jan
12017-01-08 13:30:47 UTCmueschel Hi,
welcome to OSM!
please note that all tags have to be in English, as documented in the wiki.
For example this node:
should have the tag shop = hairdresser

Could you review your edits and change the tagging?

Cheers, Jan

12017-01-08 13:03:07 UTCmueschel Hi,
you used the key "спорткомплекс" here - tags should always be in English. Did you mean leisure = sports_centre?

12017-01-08 12:36:00 UTCmueschel Here are at least two more ways with strange tags:

22017-01-10 02:32:26 UTCpiligab Hi Mueschel,
I am sorry.
Thank you for bringing this to my notice. What you have mentioned is right. Hence, I have corrected the tag of my changeset. Thanks for your feedback.

12017-01-06 11:52:04 UTCmueschel Hi,
the tags you put on the roads do not fully match your description: If you want to allow busses _only_, you also have to close the road to other traffic, e.g. by an additional
motor_vehicle:backward:conditional = no @ 06:00 - 22:00.

Let me know if you need help!
22017-01-06 12:07:43 UTCAmZaf Thanks for your attention. I added the motor_vehicle restriction as a default value when the conditional restriction does not apply, i.e. after 10 p.m. This means that the backward lane is open to all traffic after 10 p.m.
OSM documentation referenced below says that a conditional restriction is ...
32017-01-06 12:13:03 UTCmueschel This applies only if it's the same key, e.g. vehicle and vehicle:conditional.

A key like 'bus' doesn't make any assumptions on other type of traffic. I'd suggest:

motor_vehicle = no #closed for the major part of the day
motor_vehicle:conditional = yes @ 22:00 - 06:00 #allowed 22 - 06

12017-01-01 14:43:31 UTCmueschel Hi,
could you explain the tags time and time_1 on this node?

Maybe you can use a tag like "opening_hours" instead?

Cheers, Jan
22017-01-01 22:58:55 UTCgeoaria Hi
Thanks for your hints .
.In the hours for half an hour opens.
Clock insertion, time of prayer.
I wish,  There is also an option for prayer times. Since its opening, it depends on the sunrise and sunset.

I think I should correct.
12017-01-01 14:42:08 UTCmueschel Hi,
this building has the tag "hous = water" which seems strange. Could you clarify what it is supposed to be?

Cheers, Jan
22017-01-01 14:58:33 UTCSuffolkNY Jan,

Sorry, that's a mistake. It should be building=house (this is not a garage).

32017-01-01 21:22:29 UTCNorthfork I corrected it and checked other buildings around Jamesport for the tag "hous=water". It was the only building.
12017-01-01 13:38:42 UTCmueschel Hi,
please indicate the source of this information. Is the sources license compatible with ODbL?

12016-12-31 15:29:23 UTCmueschel Hallo,
was heißt denn
access = block
blocktype = fence
Das sind keine Tags die anderswo verwendet werden. Meinst du access=no, barrier=fence?

Ist aktualisiert.
12016-12-31 15:20:17 UTCmueschel Hi,
could you explain the tag "food_prone = yes"? You used it several times, but it is not used any where else.

Cheers, Jan

could you check this node?
The tag 'pl:Sieruciowce =administrative' looks like a mistake.

22016-12-31 17:41:17 UTCSkybunny Fixed in to use OSM compliant tags in all cases. My apologies.

12016-12-31 14:23:41 UTCmueschel Hi,
your source tags have ticks (') in the key which shouldn't be there. Could you fix this? Actually, there is no need to put these tags, the information is already in the source tag of the changeset itself.

Cheers, Jan
22016-12-31 15:44:51 UTCAleks-Berlin I have fixed it now. I also have fixed some others some days ago. Alex
12016-12-31 14:15:48 UTCmueschel Hi,
the two tags
barrier:gate \tyes
barrier:gate:access \tno
are not used in any other place. Could you describe the barrier and who can get through in words?

22016-12-31 15:44:25 UTClokejul The barrier is a fence across the entire 3m width of the path. one end of the fence is a cycle barrier. The rest of the fence is locked chain-link gate.

I will retry with a different set of tags.

Schönen Gruß

12016-12-31 13:33:21 UTCmueschel Hi,
may I ask for the source of data of all these hotels? There are many issues with this data:

- most hotels I checked already exist in the OSM database
- you deleted some existing hotels
- the tagging of the new nodes is wrong. Tags like addr:tourism, addr:phone or addr:name do not exist.
12016-12-29 21:29:37 UTCmueschel Hi,
this way uses some uncommon tags:
cyclestreet = yes
cycleway = cyclestreet

Did you mean
bicycle_road = yes ?

22016-12-30 12:34:40 UTCmarczoutendijk @mueschel:
In the Netherlands we have a special type of road (Fietsstraat) that is for bicycles, but vehicles are allowed.
See overpass for its use:
32016-12-30 13:01:26 UTCmueschel Hi,
I didn't notice the spelling mistake in the key (3x e in streeet) and then wasn't able to find any other use of this key.

Btw, such a road in Germany would be tagged as
bicycle_road = yes
42016-12-30 13:47:51 UTCmarczoutendijk I fixed the typo in cyclestreet.

52016-12-30 13:50:21 UTCmarczoutendijk Using the tagging you propose isn't the solution because of different legal rights for both type of roads.
62016-12-30 13:54:46 UTCmueschel If it's established tagging, it's fine with me. I didn't want to start a discussion about it. On the other hand, even a highway=motorway has different legal rights in different countries. So there might be a chance to find a common tagging in the future.

Cheers, Jan
72016-12-30 14:08:48 UTCmarczoutendijk This subject (cyclestreet) sure has the attention of the Dutch mapping community!
12016-12-30 13:14:04 UTCmueschel Hi,

12016-12-29 13:38:54 UTCmueschel Hi, welcome to OSM!
I think you have a spelling mistake on this node, what does "slnow=Slide" mean?

12016-12-29 13:37:12 UTCmueschel Hi,
did you check the license of this data? The website mentions a "Copyrightvermerk" is needed, OSM can't guarantee this.

22016-12-29 16:00:55 UTCulamm That is no problem of the licence, as long as we do not copy the course from public servers.

Unfortunately we can not use Swisstopo, also not for correcting the spelling. Valid sources can be documents or news paper articles. Best would be a sign on the ground. But the maps and databases are definitely off limits. Sorry. I hope you will find some other source.
12016-12-29 13:33:39 UTCmueschel Hi, welcome to OSM!
I found tags like these on this hotel:

This might be a good description of the object,
but is not usable in OSM - no so...
12016-12-28 14:09:46 UTCmueschel Hi,
could you check this object?
The tag looks strange:
12-0517 = uncontrolled
22016-12-28 14:49:01 UTCAndrzej3345 Thanks for indication. Already fixed.
Correct is ref=12-0517.
BTW, how you discovered that minor mistake - any proofing tool. Happy to hear if I can use it in the future.
32016-12-28 15:02:29 UTCmueschel Hi Andrzej,

12016-12-28 14:39:58 UTCmueschel Hi,

The tag "957 =753" looks strange.

Cheers, Jan
22017-01-04 00:54:01 UTCu_kubota Thank you for your comment.
This tag was given with an erroneous operation, it is not intentionally added.
So I deleted it.

and second why are strange tags?,which one of them?
32016-12-27 21:50:26 UTCmueschel I'm just another OSM mapper...

How can a 'diameter' be 'green'?
'thuja occidentalis' can be the species, but 'thuja' is not a recognized tag.

325x "fire_boundar" (should be fire_boundary)
23x "fire operator" (should be fire_operator)

12016-12-26 14:14:48 UTCmueschel Hi,
there are two poles with misspelled tags, 'bname' and 'bane'.

An diesem Weg hast du das Tag "zzz" gesetzt - kannst du das überprüfen?

12016-12-11 15:45:42 UTCmueschel Hi,
I noticed these 91 nodes with tags from your GPS:
I think they are not needed in OSM. Would you mind if I delete them?

22016-12-12 17:36:39 UTCWirePiper Hello,

Sure you can delete any GPS trace, as long as no roads or other features are loss in the process.
12016-12-11 12:57:52 UTCmueschel Hi, I found 180 objects like this one:

Most of the "damage:" tags are misspelled and even contradicting each other. This makes the tags rather useless because they can not be shown e.g. on a map.
12016-12-10 17:49:53 UTCmueschel Wenn hier durchgehende barrier=kerb erfasst sind, müssten dann nicht auch die abgesenkten Bordsteinkanten an den Kreuzungen eingetragen werden? Die meisten Radwege führen hier ja nunmal nicht über Bordsteinkanten.
22016-12-10 19:13:57 UTCz∈ℂ Stimmt, mir war die Existenz des Tags kerb=lowered/flush nicht bewusst, ich dachte, so etwas wäre nur über height=* zu realisieren gewesen. In der jetzigen Variante wird ein Hindernis impliziert, es wäre also sinnvoll, diese Information zu ergänzen (auch allgemein für Fu&szl...
12016-12-10 17:31:57 UTCmueschel Hi,
you put a strange tag on this node, could you check it?

22016-12-10 17:45:25 UTCEliziR Hi,

Fixed ;)

Thanks @mueschel
12016-12-10 10:54:01 UTCliteran please do not make such changes. I used Healthcare 2.0 ( ) tags.
22016-12-10 11:31:50 UTCmueschel Me too:
Homeopathy is listed as a specialty, not as a medial_system.
32016-12-10 11:41:08 UTCliteran hmmm.... it's very strange cause homeopathy is not the specialty of tradicional medicine. like ayurveeda, chinese medicine. What medical_system: tag should we use for homeopathy? Propose to leave both tags
42016-12-10 16:05:41 UTCmueschel The health_specialty tag is already used a few times. A change should be discussed within the proposal / its Talk page.
12016-12-10 12:24:48 UTCmueschel Hi,
could you explain all those ways? They have no common OSM tags, and seem not to match anything on the ground.

12016-12-10 11:28:10 UTCmueschel Hi,
If found the misspelled key "damage:assesment" in your edits. 'assessment' is written with 4 s.
Let me know if you want me to fix that for you.

12016-12-09 22:07:12 UTCmueschel Hi,
these 6 nodes don't have any physical tag, like amenity or shop. Just the name is not enough to be useful in OSM. Could you update them?

12016-12-09 22:04:05 UTCmueschel Hi,
do we really need tags like these in OSM?

Btw, the key name:proposed should be proposed:name.

12016-12-09 21:27:14 UTCmueschel Hi,
I found the tag "Intervención =VdE" on many objects. This is not a common tag. Could you explain the meaning or change to another tagging?
12016-12-09 21:20:39 UTCmueschel Hi,
I found the keys ref:FLIK and ref:flik - can you just use one spelling? Btw, did you check that this source is licensed in a way compatible to OSM?

22016-12-10 02:43:24 UTCStereo Hi Jan,

Yes, the data is CC-0,

You’re right that it’s not good to mix the case; I’ll correct the lowercase to FLIK.
32016-12-10 03:07:50 UTCStereo Done,

Thank you for making me aware of this!
12016-12-09 15:55:00 UTCmueschel Hi,
I never heard of a currency named 'XLT-GBAR' - could you explain these tags?

22016-12-09 19:46:59 UTCFrViPofm Of course, you have never heard. It's new... It's a guess of mapping LETS.
32016-12-09 19:55:51 UTCmueschel Thanks, I didn't find this wiki page using google. I think the plan would benefit from being converted to a full proposal. I don't know if it makes sense to have keys with cash/contactless - what about e.g. chip cards, coupons? I would move this information to the value, not to the key.
12016-12-09 15:53:47 UTCmueschel Hi,
I found several buildings with a spelling mistake: 'damege' instead of 'damage'.

If you want, I can correct this for you.

12016-12-07 11:24:10 UTCmueschel Hi,
all the nodes you added in this changeset are pretty useless for OSM: They don't have any tag describing what they are. No map or software can use them in the present state.
Please have a look in the wiki, e.g. for example how shops have to be tagged.

12016-12-07 11:20:19 UTCmueschel Hi,
you put the tag "osmuser=MapMakinMeyers" on many objects - your user name should not appear in the tags of a node.
Could you remove this?

22016-12-07 12:18:52 UTCMapMakinMeyers Jan,
Sorry, It was my first time using JOSM. Is there a easy way to do this? not sure how it happened.

Thanks and sorry about this issue
32016-12-07 12:32:19 UTCMapMakinMeyers I think I removed them - Sorry about this mess. Please let me know if it is gone
12016-12-05 14:27:04 UTChighflyer74 Hello mapmakerwbd!

12016-12-04 21:16:12 UTCmueschel Hi,
I found tags like "water tank:street" on 23 of your objects. There should be no spaces in keys, could you change them to the correct keys?
22016-12-04 21:27:58 UTCAleks-Berlin I fixed some tags, but did not detect all mistakes. So its not my objects. But I try to fix within this week. KR, Alex

32016-12-05 14:40:33 UTChighflyer74 Moin gmbo!

12016-12-04 21:24:15 UTCmueschel Hi,
could you check the tagging? Tags should always be common tags and no newly invented ones, e.g.
Aantal Kassa,s \t6
Geldautomaat \tJa
Kofiebuffet \tJa

Also, 'opening_hours' has a well defined syntax which is required that it can be understood by software.

12016-12-04 21:13:08 UTCmueschel Hi,

Did you mean language:en = yes?

12016-11-30 11:14:45 UTCmueschel Hi,

Cheers, Jan
12016-12-02 18:50:33 UTCmueschel Hi,
you used the tags name_alt and name_alt:fr
Usually the key "alt_name" is used. Maybe you want to change this?

12016-12-02 11:47:56 UTCmueschel Hi,
could you check the tagging of the restaurants you edited? The values of the tags (e.g. diet, cuisine, opening_hours) must be in English and follow the common tagging schemes (e.g. opening_hours as a fixed syntax that is understood by software).

12016-12-01 15:19:00 UTCdanovar das ist kein name:de sondern höchstens ein österreichischer Name (aus der Zeit Österreich-Ungarns), d.h. ein name:öst.

32016-12-02 09:54:55 UTCdanovar Alles klar. Hatte ich aber auch schon mal probiert (old_name:de), dann wurde es auch nach einiger Zeit wieder zurück geändert.

32016-11-28 09:33:07 UTCmueschel The two tags add2r:housenumber and addr2:street are definitely wrong and should be removed. If the house has two addresses, they have to appear on two different nodes.
12016-11-26 19:57:14 UTCmueschel Hi,
you added the tag "zone:traffic:DE =urban" to several ways. First, this tag should be zone:traffic=DE:urban. Second, these ways are in Belgium, hence DE:urban can not be right.

22016-11-26 20:15:58 UTCloconvey Hello Jan - thats my fault, you're right. What do you propose? The roads should be blocked for heavy vehicles. What about maxgcweight=3.5 ?
32016-11-26 20:23:49 UTCmueschel This would be maxweight=3.5
42016-11-26 20:29:26 UTCloconvey That should do it then?
52016-11-27 11:58:35 UTCmueschel Yes, that 's sufficient. The more special tags like maxgcweight are only needed in special cases, a simple "not heavier than" is just 'maxweight'.

12016-11-18 20:48:52 UTCmueschel Hi,
I found the tag "hgv:8t=destination" on this way:
This tag is not used in other places. Have a look at the :conditional syntax that is used to describe things like this. e.g. hgv:conditional = destination @ weight > 8

12016-11-18 20:30:39 UTCmueschel Hi again,

On several of the objects you added, I saw tags like "Justice Hall = yes" or "Nasugbu Auditorium/Evacuation Center = yes". These tags can not be understood by software and should be changed to something else.
E.g. if it is the name of the object, put it to name=...\...

could you check the tagging of this way?
The tag "Carrera 99 =Calle 99" looks strange.

22016-11-15 16:38:02 UTCmueschel Hi,
your tag was health_specialty:trauma=yes.
Using the scheme from this wiki page: - no version of 'trauma' is listed there.
I looked at Taginfo and found 'trauma' not being used, but 'traumatology' used 4 times. ...
32016-11-16 15:28:48 UTCliteran OK. Second one doesn't match here, cause it's not the emergency station, but Trauma point (Травмпункт) - in Russia it's 24/7 medical institution that cure only traumas.

12016-11-13 16:40:44 UTCmueschel Hi,
I noticed that you created many broken relations in your changesets.
If you want to add information like addr:street, make sure you add them to the building itself and do not create a relation for this.

Let us know if you need help!
12016-11-13 13:50:49 UTCmueschel Hi,
I saw the tag 'motor vehicle = oneway' and 'cycleway = opposite' on two cycleways.
I think what you mean is
highway=cycleway (allows bicycles in both ways, but disallows motor_vehicles)
motor_vehicle:forward = yes (allows motor_vehicles in one direction only)

Could you verify this?

12016-11-02 10:44:15 UTCsaikabhi Hello, I am seeing that your changeset has created duplicates of the features in OSM. Any reason as to why that happened? Can you please go ahead and review these changes and revert them?

Thank you,
22016-11-02 18:17:46 UTCkerrymapper Thank you for the heads up Abhishek. I exported this work as geojson in JOSM to validate it, and it appears to have duplicated everything when I re-uploaded it. I will use the reverter plugin to backtrack. It's not working for me right now, but I will fix it. I will just revert all, then revalidate
32016-11-06 16:03:16 UTCmueschel If you have trouble doing the revert, let us know. There are "experienced reverters" who know how to solve common problems.
12016-11-06 16:00:19 UTCmueschel Hi,
I saw you put the tag "zip code" on many objects. This tag is not used in any other place. The common tag for this purpose is "addr:postcode". Would you mind changing your edits so that OSM can make use of your work?

42016-11-05 15:58:49 UTCPrince Kassad Doch, kaltuna hat vorgeschlagen, alles zu löschen. Und dann den Bug geschlossen so nach dem Motto "los, mach mal, nicht einfach nur faulenzen".
52016-11-05 16:00:40 UTCmueschel Bitte? Lies das nochmal.
62016-11-05 16:10:32 UTCPrince Kassad "Ich finde, daß Highway=Service alleine stehend vermieden werden sollte. Vor allem, wenn man eine Fläche damit taggt.
Frei zugängliche Flächen (z.B. am Frischezentrum) sollten meiner Meinung nach eher mit amenity=parking in Verbindung mit Access=* markiert sein. "

72016-11-05 16:18:30 UTCmueschel Da steht, du sollst es vermeiden und mit access ergänzen. Flächen auf denen gefahren aber nicht geparkt wird (z.B. am Frischezentrum dienen die meisten Flächen der Zufahrt und als Platz zum Rangieren für LKW) sind sicherlich nicht amenity=parking sondern highway=service.

12016-11-05 12:51:01 UTCmueschel Hi,
could you explain the keys 'foot:color' and 'foot:shape'? They have not been in use before. Maybe there is a better suited way of tagging.

22016-10-31 16:14:59 UTCcatechin Hi Mueschel,

The intent was not to use this for search engine optimization but to provide for clear details on legal aid organizations so people can have clear knowledge of the organization they tend to visit. I can delete the tags you listed as spam. Thanks.
32016-10-31 16:27:06 UTCmueschel Hi,
thanks for the reply. Many users add information to OSM just to be visible in search engines, and your edit looked like one of those.

You don't have to delete this information, but it should be changed to standard tagging, e.g. opening_hours has a well defined syntax that can be understood ...
42016-10-31 19:37:09 UTCcatechin Hi Jan,
Amazing, thank you for the links. They are a great guide! I have changed hours to standard syntax. Let me know if I should change anything else. This is the first Legal aid organization in the San Francisco out of a longer list that I intent to add to the map.
52016-10-31 19:44:29 UTCmueschel Hi,

12016-10-30 12:40:15 UTCmueschel Hi,
looking at the building you added here: It would be very helpful to stick with normal tags. E.g. all the opening_hour tags can not be understood by any software - they can be combined to one normal opening_hours tag.
'Personne de contact' is better written as contact:name or contact:person
22016-10-30 13:27:47 UTCPierZen Hi Jan,
Thanks to spot this.
These tags have been added by the Potentiel 3.0 Field team that organized a UAV mission in this village. They took the time to add POI We are a team to support them at distance. This opening_hours does not look pertinent. I will remove.
