12017-11-18 11:26:30 UTCmueschel Hi,
all these ways do have the tags
If these are streets used by farmers, the correct tag is "highway=track" would you mind changing that?

Cheers, Jan
22017-11-18 13:20:01 UTCJean-Pierre WEZA Hi Mueschel,

Thanks for your comment.
i'm just uploading changes for this

Cheers !

32017-12-17 12:59:43 UTCmueschel Hi,
there are still more than 9000 objects edited by you with the tag "tracks=yes".
12017-12-16 11:20:38 UTCmueschel Hi,
you used the tag "addr:sreet" on many objects. The correct spelling would be "addr:street". Could you have a look and fix these?
Cheers, Jan
12017-12-16 11:19:25 UTCmueschel Hi,
you used the tag "add:village" on many roads, unfortunately there are two issues:
1. it should be "addr:city"
2. this tag is only used for addresses of buildings, not on roads. If necessary you could add "is_in:city" on roads, but this is not needed if the city i...
12017-12-16 11:16:39 UTCmueschel Hi,
it looks like you imported a lot of data for hotels here. Unfortunately, some of the tagging is wrong:
E.g. here:

- add:postcode should be addr:postcode
- there is no "award" tag, the proposal has been rejected
- 'stars' should only c...
12017-12-15 12:23:03 UTCmueschel Hallo,
bei 24 dieser Wege soll es wohl "railway:track_ref" und nicht "railway:trak_ref" heissen. Schaust du da mal drüber?
Gruss, Jan
12017-12-14 13:22:16 UTCmueschel Hi,

12017-12-13 11:56:41 UTCmueschel Hi,
the tag "maxspeed:permanent" you used here is new and undocumented. Could you explain its meaning?

Thanks, Jan
22017-12-13 14:43:18 UTCroute56 I used "maxspeed:permanent" as a placeholder. It should be self-explanatory, but just in case: the current "maxspeed" tag of 55 mph is the currently posted speed limit due to long-term construction. Once the project is completed,the limit will be raised to 75 mph, and the tag wil...
12017-12-13 11:33:05 UTCmueschel Hi,
could you please check the tagging of some nodes? There are 52 nodes with the tag "Natural=trees" which should be "natural=tree".

12017-12-13 11:31:37 UTCmueschel Hi,
I guess something went wrong here, all these roads have many imported tags that don't look like they belong to the OSM database. Could you check and fix that?

Cheers, Jan
12017-12-12 11:45:48 UTCmueschel Hi,
these nodes contain tags with spelling mistakes:
addr:neigh -> addr:neighbourhood
addr:postc -> addr:postcode
Could you please have a look and fix these 319 POIs?

Thanks, Jan
22017-12-12 11:47:00 UTCmueschel and:
addr:house \t-> addr:housenumber

Some do have "addr:house = 0", which doesn't seem to be a valid housenumber.
32017-12-13 18:37:59 UTCCENTSOARER I'm on it. Thanks.
42017-12-13 19:08:37 UTCCENTSOARER I fixed the bad keys/values. It was a distraction on my side, I'm sorry. Once again, thank you mueschel.
12017-12-10 19:25:19 UTCmueschel Hallo,
du hast hier Tags benutzt wie "Mo. - Fr. = ..." oder "tel.:". Bitte benutze nur Keys wie sie im Wiki beschrieben sind, also "opening_hours" und "phone", sonst kann keine Software etwas mit den Informationen anfangen.

Gruß, Jan
12017-12-09 19:16:04 UTCmueschel Hi,
these edits introduced several strange tags on 14 objects:
SHAPESTAre \t9.218000289160156E7
SHAPESTLen \t84464.43847961596
Zoning \tTP

Could you check & fix this?
Thanks, Jan
22017-12-09 21:13:00 UTCstevea No fixes necessary, they are part of an "official" (local government) import, now in its third revision since the initial 2009 v1 import.

32017-12-09 21:14:55 UTCstevea As has become the custom over the years as our attitudes and conventions towards imports changes (and improves), these tags will be reduced or removed altogether in the v4 update to these data, anticipated in 2019 or 2020. As per the "Multipolygonization" discussion on talk-us in November...
42017-12-09 21:38:18 UTCmueschel The tags I mentioned are new to OSM, not used before. And they are not mentioned on your Wiki page as well.
52017-12-09 21:46:40 UTCstevea Yes, SHAPE_STAr and SHAPE_STLe are mentioned in the wiki. Look, this is an eight-year old import with data that are carefully curated, documented and promised to not only be updated (with v4) but also improved with the next version (via multipolygonization). In the initial import (messy as documen...
12017-12-09 19:19:58 UTCmueschel Hi,
could you check this relation? I can't make sense of the tag "nx = l"
12017-12-09 11:05:22 UTCmueschel Hi,
welcome to OSM!
in your edits I found some nodes with tags like "Meccanico = Meccanico Marella". This might be a good description of the object,
but is not usable in OSM - no software can understand
it. Please have a look at the wiki about common
tags for shops or amenities.

12017-12-09 11:00:42 UTCmueschel Hi,
I found some spelling mistakes in these edits - instead of the correct "species" you wrote "specices" and "speices". Could you please check and correct these?

Cheers, Jan
12017-12-09 10:57:24 UTCmueschel Hi,
welcome to OSM!
Please make sure that all the tags you use are spelled correctly - otherwise they can not be used by any software. E.g.
"fr: naf" should be "ref:FR:NAF"
"fr: siret" should be "ref:FR:SIRET"
In these cases you used many different spell...
12017-12-08 18:09:03 UTCmueschel Hi,
in your edits you invented several new tags like these:
no: of rooms
staff: Name
For both of them, you used many (at least 11) different spellings. Please only use tags that are described in the wiki, everything else can not be understood by any software and is therefore rather useless.
12017-12-07 11:41:56 UTCmueschel Hallo,
du hast hier den Key "roof:ridges" benutzt - richtig wäre "roof:ridge". Kannst du das noch korrigieren?

Gruß, Jan
22017-12-07 11:52:21 UTCgmbo danke für den Hinweis,

12017-12-07 11:40:23 UTCmueschel Hi,
you added the key "kaart" to all these ways - this is new and undocumented. Could you explain its meaning?

Thanks, Jan
22017-12-07 14:09:34 UTCgarylancelot No, this is a key that I use while editing to find ways with certain errors. I will revert the change. It was not intentionally uploaded. Thank you!
12017-12-07 11:38:01 UTCmueschel Hi,
could you please check the spelling of keys? I saw several spelling mistakes there, e.g. in "building:part",
For example

Cheers, Jan
12017-12-05 11:42:01 UTCmueschel Kannst du hier und beim nächsten Gebäude die housenumber-Tags prüfen? Da stimmt etwas nicht.
Gruß, Jan
12017-12-04 11:57:54 UTCandrewsh Hi,

Thanks for your edits.

According to, it should be building=bungalow, not building=bunglow (sic: missing "a").

It would be great if you used the correct spelling for your future edits.
22017-12-05 11:21:10 UTCmueschel The same holds for 2700 buildings with the tag "builing:levels" which should be "building:levels".
And there are buildings mapped twice, e,g, around 7th Commercial Street.
32017-12-05 11:26:36 UTCandrewsh Indeed, I haven't noticed that.

12017-12-04 18:18:30 UTCtrigpoint Hi
These 'heritage:operator' tags you have added seem a little odd. What is the source of this information. Did you visit these sites to confirm?

Cheers Phil
22017-12-04 18:56:09 UTCmueschel Hi Phil,
I didn't add them, this was brianboru in
I just corrected the spelling from an '_' to a ':', assuming it was just a spelling mistake and the content was correct.

12017-12-04 11:49:00 UTCmueschel Hi,
welcome to OSM!
I found some nodes like this one:
There is only one tag describing the object, but no known tag as they are documented in the Wiki. In OSM we have to use a well-defined set of tags to allow all the software tools to understand the d...
12017-12-03 21:21:11 UTCmueschel Hi,
could you check this way?
The tagging doesn't look right.

Cheers, Jan
12017-12-03 13:48:32 UTCmueschel Please fix your workflow to include spell checking of tags. I'm fixing wrong spellings of 'implicit' almost every day.
22017-12-05 04:47:34 UTCsaikabhi Hello Mueschel,

Thank you for solving this error. I will be informing my team of this error and we will also be running a linter to detect these issues.

12017-12-03 10:56:17 UTCmueschel Hi,
you've added 777 buildings with a misspelled tag: "builing:levels" instead of "building:levels". Could you have a look and fix these?

Cheers, Jan
22017-12-05 16:04:35 UTCHarald Hartmann I have informed the DWG to block him, because he still uploads these wrong keys (and value)

12017-11-28 21:48:59 UTCdgitto Hi. there are 53 nodes with the wrong key "Nom" (could be "name") and no other tags (I suppose they are places).
Also, the coordinates as tags are useless
22017-12-02 11:39:06 UTCmueschel I think these points should be deleted - they are imported from some unknown source, unknown license. The tagging is not properly done and simple retagging to e.g. place=village does not really help data quality.

32017-12-02 12:57:17 UTCEdgar François Loua I'm agree with you we going to delete them
12017-12-01 13:35:05 UTCmueschel Hi,
I don't know precisely what happened here, but there are various keys with a trailing space, like "foot " instead of "foot". I fixed some of them - please check if I catched all of them.

22017-12-01 13:45:18 UTCDaveF Hi
Thanks. I noticed OSMose flagged a couple others. Will clear when I've work out why it's occurring. It's a shame editors don't automatically truncate whitespace.
12017-12-01 10:42:15 UTCmueschel Hi,
you invented some new tags here,
usefulaaltomap:id, usefulaaltomap:show

These are not used in other places and are not documented. Could you explain there meaning? To me it looks a bit like a ref number, and a ref:XXX tag would be a good choice.

22017-12-01 11:16:33 UTCrkdarst Hi,

Thanks for your feedback! I've been working on a project called UsefulAaltoMap, a better university map. It's still relatively new, most of the philosophy can be found here:

I have tried to use OSM standards as much as possible, but decide...
32017-12-01 11:57:36 UTCmueschel Thanks! Good to know that there is some documentation and planning behind.

Some ideas about keys:
usefulaaltomap:uid -> short_name
usefulaaltomap:id -> ref:university, ref:aalto
usefuaaltomap:show -> this is a bit problematic because it just tells one specific renderer what to do - as...
12017-12-01 10:46:55 UTCmueschel I found many tags like these in your edits:

Please watch out for correct tags, especially correct use of :forward and :backward!
22017-12-01 10:50:02 UTCMinh Nguyen Yikes, sorry about that! I’ve been manually entering these in iD, and unfortunately, iD silently adds the _1 instead of forcing me to notice the existing tag. I’ll double-check my edits for this error in the future. Thanks for noticing!
32017-12-01 10:59:28 UTCMinh Nguyen
12017-12-01 09:34:08 UTCmueschel Hi,
you added several nodes which do not have any common tag on them, like this one.
Most of the data actually looks like random key presses ('12345','qwerty', etc.)
Please do not add such tags to the OSM database. Use only tags as they are described in the Wiki and that have actual relevance.
12017-12-01 09:25:26 UTCmueschel Hi,
you added the key "distrito" to these buildings - this key is new und undocumented. Is this number part of the address? Then it should have a key like "addr:...".

22017-12-01 09:46:04 UTCsantamariense Hi @mueschel, I have just talked him about that. We are searching another way to map such thing. As soon as we decide about, it will be changed.
12017-11-30 13:56:06 UTCmueschel Hi,
please don't forget the '_' in keys:
12017-11-28 21:40:40 UTCdgitto Hi. what does "hazus" means? it was never used as OSM tag

32017-11-29 20:37:17 UTCdgitto There is no problem, as far as I know.
You will better ask to the community, soon or later
42017-11-30 13:15:53 UTCmueschel You don't need tags like COM1, COM2 and so on - this can all be covered by the existing and established 'building' tag.
If you actually want to introduce a new tag, you should write a description for the Wiki and ask the community for comments.
12017-11-30 13:10:04 UTCmueschel Hi,
you're adding the tag "amenity_02 \t=car_wash" to fuel stations - there is no such key used in any other place.
The correct tag would be "car_wash = yes"

12017-11-29 11:53:02 UTCmueschel Hi,

I'll try to do this with existing tags, depending on what's availa...
12017-11-29 11:48:24 UTCmueschel Hi,
could you check the name tags on this way?

'name:jabane:ja-Hira' looks like a mistake.

Cheers, Jan
12017-11-29 11:41:41 UTCmueschel Hi,
I saw that you added many species tags to these trees - in general it is sufficient to just have the species tag and no translations. These can be easily looked up if needed, e.g. using wikidata. (This is the same as with other tags, we also do not translate e.g. "building=house" to o...
12017-11-29 11:39:37 UTCmueschel Hi,
on about 30 objects I found the tag "name: en" - could you change this to the correct spelling "name:en"?

Thanks, Jan
12017-11-28 11:45:40 UTCmueschel Hi,
please check the tagging - on hundreds of nodes you put the tag "adrr:district" instead of "addr:district"

It was an error. A lot of my recent changestes regarding power lines contain data imported form the open data of RTE, the French electricity transport operator ( "classe_de_p" is the truncated form of "classe_de_precision&...
12017-11-28 11:31:30 UTCmueschel Hi,
could you check the spelling of some of these tags? 'singal_rider', 'requirment'

Also, you used the key 'tracktype' which is typically used in a very different context. And some of the values ('Steel') are in upper case, while OSM typically uses lower case.

12017-11-28 11:21:25 UTCmueschel Hi,
could you specify the precise source of your data? Most maps are copyrighted and can not be copied to OSM.

Also, please fix the tagging. You used tags like these:
Denumire=Dealu Sofarului
Both of them are unknown in OSM and should be 'name' and 'ele'.

12017-11-27 11:53:36 UTCmueschel Hi,
it looks like you imported some external data set of fuel stations - all these nodes are not properly tagged, mostly duplicating already existing POIs and you don't state the source of this data.
Please follow the Import Guidelines for such edits:

12017-11-27 11:46:46 UTCmueschel Hi,

22017-11-27 11:53:02 UTCTuanIfan Hi mueschel,

Thanks for telling me. Yeah youre right, the key 310 is certainly a mistake. I will take it down soon.

12017-11-27 11:39:48 UTCmueschel Hi,

For example:

12017-11-27 08:07:32 UTCmueschel Hi,
could you check the tagging of this way?
Is "Folwarek Jamy" the name?

Cheers, Jan
22017-11-28 09:50:18 UTCwmyrda hi,
Folwarek was a proper name. I didnt notice that while adding new object instead of editing name field I edited tag itself.

It is fixed now.
12017-11-27 08:01:30 UTCmueschel Hi,
you put the key "nombre_de_c" on several ways like this one:
Is this supposed to be 'circuits' or 'cables'?

Cheers, Jan
12017-11-27 07:59:06 UTCmueschel Hi,
you added a new tag on this way - could you explain its meaning?
Maybe we can find some common tag for this in the Wiki?

I guess this should be tagged shop=rental:

Cheers, Jan
22017-11-22 23:32:43 UTCdieterdreist Hello Jan, I know the place well, it is a scooter and bike rental and tour operator (has a license to offer guided tours). I don’t like the generic shop=rental tag, and it generally has very low acceptance (few uses). Another tag could be travel agency with bike rental as property.
32017-11-23 20:04:31 UTCmueschel If you can't buy bicycles but rent them, then it can't be a shop=bicycle, but is a perfect fit for shop=rental. I'm not aware of a dedicated tag for guided tours, despite some keys containing "guided_tours".
12017-11-22 12:14:19 UTCmueschel Hi,
I found some name tags with a spelling different to the usual one - OSM depends a lot on precise spelling of keys, otherwise software can not handle the information.

12017-11-22 10:55:15 UTCmueschel Hi,

12017-11-21 17:06:02 UTCmueschel Hi,
what is the meaning of the tag population:cuunt and its various other spellings you usd here?
please note that OSM does not want to provide personal information about people, just objects like houses. Please have a look to the wiki to see how them are tagged properly.

Cheers, Jan
12017-11-21 14:49:28 UTCmueschel Hi Piotr,
could you check the tagging of these objects? You used tags like "Lote \t= Lote vago residencial', which can not be used for OSM. It might be a good description, but no software can understand it. Only tags that are described in the wiki can be used.

Enjoy mapping!
12017-11-21 14:38:28 UTCmueschel Hi,
please check this import. All the nodes have foreign tags only.
Besides, did you follow the import guidelines and did you check the license of the source of this data?

32017-11-20 01:46:49 UTCVia-velo Hi Jan, I think I've got it now. I changed the tag to cycleway:left in the first column and opposite_lane in the second column of the All tags field.
Cheers, Paul
42017-11-20 09:18:06 UTCmueschel Hi,
yes, now it's correct. The '=' separates key and value and you have to put those to separate fields.

12017-11-19 11:33:26 UTCmueschel Hi,
you've added the tag "Restored = Yes" to several ways. Please note that OSM is case sensitive and most keys and values have to use lower-case letters.

Cheers, Jan
12017-11-19 11:28:51 UTCmueschel Hi,
could you check these changes? I found several nodes with many strange tags like these:
beneficiar \tnull
camp_code \tnull
comment \tnull
electricit \tnull
elevated \tnull
fire_safe \tnull
12017-11-09 09:44:37 UTCmueschel Hallo,
du hast hier einige Wegweiser eingetragen und Tags wie "direction:north" verwendet. Die übliche Schreibweise ist "direction_north" mit einem Unterstrich.

Gruß, Jan
22017-11-18 11:46:50 UTCuboot Hallo Jan.
Da habe ich wohl nicht genau genug geschaut und mich von anderen Tags verleiten lassen. Ich sehe zu, dass ich das wieder korrigierte.
Danke für den Hinweis und Grüße,
32017-11-18 13:15:59 UTCmueschel Hallo Markus,
danke für die Rückmeldung, inzwischen sind die Tags schon korrigiert, brauchst nicht mehr suchen.
12017-11-18 13:14:30 UTCmueschel Hallo Theodin,
ich habe ein paar Wegweiser von dir gefunden mit Tags wie "direction:Fellbach=0.6" - insgesamt 15 Tags.
Würdest du die auf ein gängiges Schema ändern? Wir haben entweder "direction_north" u.ä. oder die umfassenden Relationen mit type=relation...
12017-11-18 13:08:11 UTCmueschel Hi Petr,
it's an old changeset, but I just stumbled across this node and its tag "direction:highway=-1" - this is used only here, maybe you can revise this tagging?
Cheers, Jan
12017-11-18 11:37:56 UTCmueschel Hi,
you used the key "sharrows" here, which is new and undocumented. Did you mean cycleway=shared_lane ?

Cheers, Jan
22017-11-28 20:54:46 UTCHeather Shearer I did mean to say that, thanks for catching it! (we had a local tagging guide with the wrong scheme - local guide now fixed, along with the tag on this bit of road)
12017-11-18 11:23:43 UTCmueschel Hi,
here you added the tag "mdds:code", a week ago it was "MDDS_Code". Could you change to a common spelling of the key?
Btw, if this is kind of a reference number used by government, I'd consider "ref:mdds" as better.

Cheers, Jan
22017-11-18 21:17:05 UTCsfrank Hi,
first I did not find any tag for the MDDS-code (sort of e goverment code, found in census2011 documents and others), and also only less information for village tagging in india. But then I found a (older) discussion entry (...
12017-09-28 12:02:23 UTCmueschel Hi,

did you actually read and understand all the changeset comments and the user block message?
Your edits have been deleted because of their quality. Now you start over and re-import all of this again? Please stop it!
12017-11-17 12:06:53 UTCmueschel Hi,
I'm not sure if the conditional tagging actually means the right thing. Is access fully closed in the morning? Then it should be "access=no".
And vice versa, if everybody is allowed, you need a access:conditional tag.

Cheers, Jan
22017-11-17 12:15:09 UTCmanings Hi Jan,

This the mapillary I used:

From the image, it shows only HOV restriction.

52017-11-17 12:28:16 UTCmueschel The orange sign says something additional about "ramp closed".

On the white sign I'm also not sure about the precise meaning - is it "hov: only in the afternoon" (hov not allowed in the morning) or "in the afternoon: hov only" (everybody allowed in the morning, but ...
12017-11-17 10:44:15 UTCmueschel Moin,

12017-11-17 10:28:20 UTCmueschel Please watch out for the correct spelling of tags. It is "building" and "condition". Any wrong spelling means that the data is not usable at all!
Please check all your edits, there are hundreds of such mistakes.

could you explain what this node represents? I can't make any sense out of the tags.

I guess something went wrong here, many buildings got tags like these:
Could you have a look?
Cheers, Jan
22017-11-14 11:02:52 UTCNakaner Hallo Johannes,

du kannst dir auch für JOSM eigene Validatorregeln schreiben, die nach solchen Tags suchen und dich warnen, bevor du sie versehentlich hochlädst. Beispiele findest du unter
32017-11-14 20:32:42 UTCjohsin18 Danke für den Hinweis, sollte jetzt korrigiert sein. Bzgl. dem Validator wollte ich schon fragen, werde das mal probieren.
12017-11-14 09:38:39 UTCmueschel Hi,
you added 95 objects with the tag 'bottom width'. I guess this should be 'bottom_width', even though this tag is not documented at all.
Please fix this

12017-11-13 18:31:32 UTCmueschel Hi,
ich glaube, diese Schilder heißen gar nicht "WIldruhezone", sondern erklären sie, oder? Dann wäre das "name" Tag nicht richtig sondern "description" (Beschreibung) oder "inscription" (Beschriftung) das passende.
Gruß, Jan
22017-11-14 11:10:19 UTCRoman Wilder Hallo Jan,

you uploaded twice the same dataset, containing points like this one:

you invented a new tag here - "speed_pedalic". Could you explain its meaning?

Kleine typo gemaakt in de tag, zal ik aanpassen
32017-11-10 19:55:37 UTCmueschel The name of the tag looks rather specific to the Netherlands. It might be a good idea to start a proposal for a generic tag for this type of vehicle. German law makes a similar distinction between electric bicycles and e-bikes.
12017-11-09 09:41:41 UTCmueschel Hi,

32017-11-10 19:15:22 UTCmueschel Thanks for taking care of this spelling mistake.

As you say, 'contact:website' is correct, but used about 10 times less than 'website' which makes me prefer the latter.

Enjoy mapping!

12017-11-09 19:22:58 UTCmueschel Hi,
welcome to OSM!
I found the tag "địa chỉ" on several of your nodes. Tags should always be in English. Please have a look at the description in the wiki:
Could you change these tags accordingly?

Cheers, Jan
12017-11-09 09:39:10 UTCmueschel Hi,
the key 'colour_name' is new and not used in other places so far. There is actually no need for it, you can put the colour name directly in the 'colour' tag, it accepts all CSS colour names (in lower case and without dashes).

12017-10-26 06:32:05 UTCmueschel Hi,
welcome to OSM. It looks like you uploaded some data from an external source here. First, all these objects do need a proper tag to describe what they are.
In OSM we have to use a well-defined set of tags to allow all the software tools to understand the data and e.g. show it on maps. Please h...
22017-10-26 12:41:59 UTCwoodpeck Jonathan, I am sorry but I will have to remove this un-discussed and badly tagged import. Please check with the "imports" mailing list to get support in doing this right.

12017-10-25 13:05:04 UTCmueschel Hi,
could you please check this relation and change all these tags to some common OSM tagging format?

With the current scheme, the tagging is rather useless, because no OSM-related software can understand it.

Thanks, Jan

12017-10-23 17:08:43 UTCmueschel Hallo,
heißt dieses Denkmal tatsächlich "Denkmal" oder ist es einfach ein Denkmal? Das "name" Tag darf nur für echte Namen verwendet werden, nicht für Objektbeschreibungen.

12017-10-22 13:02:36 UTCmueschel Hi,
you used the tag 'poped' here on 3 ways. Looks like a spelling mistake - what does it mean?
Cheers, Jan
22017-10-22 13:15:31 UTCeggie Hi Jan,

No idea.. It's not my tag.. I changed the serviceroad into cycleway and added the new cycleways here.
Let's have a look in the wiki :)
32017-10-22 13:20:13 UTCeggie I opied the cyclewaytag from a nearby G11 cycleway. I 'll remove the tag anyway. Last week I reverted the whole changeset because a mapper gluwed the man_made bridge at the Tramdijk.
42017-10-22 13:22:35 UTCmueschel Strange -
it wasn't in the database before.
Maybe it is a misspelling of 'moped'?
52017-10-22 13:29:59 UTCeggie No explanation.. anyway It's gone now :)
I noticed it before and I think's it a mispell of "moped". So it was my own tag. Thanks..

12017-10-22 13:07:07 UTCmueschel Hi,
you added 14 nodes with tags 'decription' and 'desription'. Could you please fix this spelling mistake?
22017-10-23 08:12:30 UTCMichaelCollinson Jan, Thank you for point this out. 7 corrected. 7 appear to be spelt correctly - no change made.
12017-10-22 08:30:05 UTCmueschel May I point out that the proposal for these new tags was rejected?

Please don't do large scale retaggings to a not accepted tagging scheme.

Btw. source=survey is most likely wrong.
22017-10-22 08:41:07 UTCViking81 Those hydrants were tagged by me with different tags for the same attribute. Now I try to uniform them, so tomorrow when we will have an approved proposal, it will be easy to change them, if needed.
Meanwhile, please look at
12017-10-21 13:33:28 UTCmueschel Hi,
you added this tag to a node:
Transport/auto = Lavage
Is this a place to wash a car? The correct tag is "amenity = car_wash" for this. Could you change this?
Cheers, Jan
12017-10-21 08:00:01 UTCmueschel Hi,
some of this hydrants you added here are added 3 times.Could you clean this up?
Also, some of them have a Russian tag "Адрес" could you change this to a common English tag?

Cheers, Jan

Cheers, Jan
12017-10-18 13:56:10 UTCmueschel Hi,
you invented a new tag here, "NBI Struture number', including spelling mistakes. I think that a tag following established tagging schemes would be bette4, e.g. ref:nbi. What do you think?

12017-10-18 12:53:32 UTCmueschel Hi,
what do you mean by 'cycles' here? Bicycle or motorcycle?

12017-10-15 10:39:03 UTCmueschel Hi,
you used 3 shop tags here, which do not have any of the common values. Please check the wiki to find some matching tags - free-text values for shop tags are not supported by any OSM software.

Cheers, Jan
12017-10-13 07:33:22 UTCmueschel Hi,
I don't think that the OSM database is the right place to collect information on pot holes, using no established tags to describe them. Please co sider using a dedicates service for this, for example umap.

"original=yes" ist wenig aussagekräftig.

you added this tag on several ways:
access:lanes:conditional = ||designated @ (Mo-Fr 05:30-09:00)
I guess this should be 'no' instead of 'designated' as the lane is closed to non-psv traffic.

The ``english'' name is in french and in addition contains a non-US-ASCII trailing symbol. I do not know the correct proper name, but a translation could be ``Ivory Coast Museum'' or similar.

22017-10-07 11:15:36 UTCmueschel That's a copy and paste error of the name. Fixed it according to source of this changeset.

42017-10-04 08:23:47 UTCmueschel Bei socket:type:output schau mal genau hin, 'type' ist kursiv gesetzt, soll also ersetzt werden.

12017-10-03 17:10:10 UTCmueschel Hi,

I have not checked the uses for self_service, but I see it as different from pick-your-own as I know it:

Which is different from my...
32017-10-03 19:21:36 UTCmueschel self_service is used on e.g. fuel stations, do-it-yourself workshops or canteens without waiters.

Yes, sure there is a difference, but it should be clear what it means due to the landuse =farmland. If the berries were already picked, you would put a node and tag it as shop.

is there a difference between disabled_motor_vehicle and disabled_vehicle, or do they describe the same category?
22017-10-01 12:44:26 UTCAllroads The hierarchy is disabled_vehicle, then subcategory disabled_ motor_ vehicle,

12017-09-20 15:34:14 UTCHarald Hartmann Hello Tomas Straupis. E.g. at you have add the new (and so far unkown and undocumented) key `subitem`. What is it for? #newkey
22017-09-21 07:13:01 UTCTomas Straupis It is a „test/temporary“ tag. What I'm trying to solve is this: there are a number of points tagged as historic=memorial in one small area while in practice it is one big memorial. I'm trying to filter out micro-mapped memorials. subitem=yes helps with this filtering, but I'm not fully h...
32017-10-01 11:05:29 UTCmueschel Hi,
additional point: Please don't use the name tag for description, like here:
name =Memorialas
name:de =Gedenkstätte
name:en =Memorial
name:pl =Miejsce pamięci

It is sufficient to use historic = memorial and its subtags to describe the object in a machine-readable way.
42017-10-01 11:29:06 UTCTomas Straupis Hi, I did not not add these pointless names. Previous editor Jay May did. I'm still thinking of a good way of removing these points altogether (or reducing to something less prominent like tourism=artwork).
12017-10-01 10:53:45 UTCmueschel Hi,
could you check this way and the adjacent one?

The key "nb_marches" looks like a mistake.

could you give some details on this restriction? "except = Transit vehicle" is not a common tag, and there is a stray ':' in 'restriction'.
Who is allowed to turn here?

22017-09-29 11:27:14 UTCIqhra Hi Jan,

32017-09-29 11:49:29 UTCmueschel Hi,
thanks for replying. That is 'transit' as in 'public transit'? (Sorry, I'm not from the US and don't know terminology..). That would be "except = bus", which is buses used in public transit, but not coaches.
42017-10-01 07:43:06 UTCIqhra Hi,
Thanks for getting back. I tagged it based on the sign board i see in the street level imagery ( even I am not form US). It would be great if you can go ahead and make changes as per your knowledge if it needs any correction.

22017-09-26 11:25:38 UTCsamuelrussell Cheers mate for your work.

ramp:pram is a cultural error on my part. The ramps are called "pram ramps" in Australian road design, and the regular tag "ramp:stroller" is an Americanism. I will of course correct to common usage. It obviously represents a vehicle access suitabil...
12017-09-26 10:16:15 UTCmueschel Hi,
you have used the tag "school way = yes" on this area and some buildings - could you explain the meaning? It is not a common tag. If this is a school, the correct tag is "amenity = school".
Cheers, Jan
12017-09-08 10:31:59 UTCmueschel Hi,
you added some tags like psv:turn:lanes here. I think this should be turn:psv:lanes.

The main key is turn (you want to tag turn lanes), and the transportation mode is "psv". This is the same order like e.g. in maxspeed:hgv

Cheers, Jan
22017-09-25 18:33:36 UTCVentlan Hello,
you might be right, though I could not find any documentation regarding this kind of combination of tags. I will need to think about it.
32017-09-25 18:48:11 UTCmueschel Comprehensive documentation is really a problem. In general the order for almost all tags is:

willkommen bei OSM!
Zwei Anmerkungen zu deiner Änderung habe ich: Die Breite hast du als "1,5" angegeben - OSM verwendet die englische Schreibweise mit Punkt als Dezimaltrenner.

22017-09-23 18:12:37 UTCAlibaer Danke für den Hinweis mit den 1.5 Metern.
Die zweite Bemerkung mit dem motorcar....verstehe ich nicht. Was müsste ich verwenden, wenn es ein geteerter Weg ist, auf dem kein Auto fahren kann/ darf, aber kein Straßenschild mit den von dir genannten Zahlen angebracht ist?
32017-09-23 18:29:20 UTCmueschel Hier kannst du dir das zusammenstellen:
"motorcar" ist in der Regel zu speziell, weil z.B. Lastwagen, Motorräder und Taxis nicht eingeschlossen sind. "motorisierter Verkehr" wäre "motor_vehicle".
42017-09-23 18:34:30 UTCAlibaer Ich werde mit das Morgen noch mal anschauen. Ich bin mir aber ziemlich sicher, dass kein Schild angebracht ist, aber ich habe noch nie ein Auto gesehen, dass da gefahren wäre, für größere Fahrzeuge wäre der Weg zu schmal. Gruß Albert
12017-09-23 18:00:15 UTCmueschel Hi,

Cheers, Jan
12017-09-15 10:39:23 UTCmueschel Hi,

22017-09-14 19:56:49 UTCmueschel Ah ok, this I couldn't see when reading the tags.
The correct tagging is:
vehicle:lanes = no | |
psv:lanes = designated | |

'lanes:psv' can only be used to mark that there is a psv lane, but doesn't tell anything about where it is.
32017-09-15 01:25:57 UTCaharvey Sorry you're right, thanks for that! is only for marking out how many psv lanes exist, not where they are. describes marking out where those psv lanes are.

Want to add on to Jan’s comment: Details about the print shops need to be added using relevant service tags for shop=copyshop, such as service:copy=yes (for photocopy service), service:print=yes (small set of prints) etc.
32017-09-14 05:31:12 UTCvineetkamboj Hi Rasagy,
I tried to update the tag (shop=copyshop) but still it is not rendering the correct icon.
12017-09-04 11:21:55 UTCmueschel Hi,
you added some addresses with tags like these
addr:قرية=قرية النثيلة

Could you make sure the key only contains english keys as described in the wiki?
12017-09-04 11:19:41 UTCmueschel Are there really 56 police stations in this small area? It could be a "
amenity=security_booth", a tag that is used 74 times already.

Other question: Guard_type=Guard 30: H15 C wing - shouldn't this be a name = ...

And these tags I don't understand, could you explain them?
22017-09-04 20:14:59 UTCudayanvidyanta These are the position of the security guards. I couldn't find an appropriate icon/tag for them, so had to use the one for police.
32017-09-11 11:02:17 UTCrasagy Are these guards at an entrance (better to use barrier=entrance) or at a gate (better to use one of the gates in barrier tag ( Along with that, you can use barrier:personnel=yes (

12017-09-03 12:34:51 UTCmueschel Hallo Daniel,
warum hast du hier im Ort alle Bushaltestellen entweder mit name=Stadtbus Kulmbach oder name=OVF Omnibus Verkehr Franken versehen? Das name-Tag dient dazu, den genauen Namen der Haltestelle zu erfassen, nicht für eine Beschreibung, wessen Busse dort halten.

12017-09-01 19:29:35 UTCmueschel Hi,
it looks like you invented a new tag here - "building:eaves:levels" what is its meaning?
Is building:levels and roof:levels not sufficient?

Cheers, Jan
22017-09-02 05:14:27 UTCKingigi Hi Jan,

Thank you for your message.
I tried to add the height and shape of some roofs, using some information I found on the OSM-Wiki.

Triggered by your message I did some more research and found a better way to add this information to OSM usingroof:levels, building:levels, and roof:shape

Is this a restrictions for cars higher than the given value? Then it should be

We're referring to the actual size of the vehicle, not a restriction like 'maxheight'.

Cheers, Jan
22017-08-27 16:19:49 UTCdannykath Hi, mueschel! Thank you for you attentiveness. Of course, in this case it is forbidden to drive cars higher than 13'6'', not equal to 13'6''.

could you check the tagging of these nodes? Most have tags which look like they don't belong to OSM, like these:

22017-08-06 13:11:03 UTCmueschel Addendum:
It looks like none of these points is actually part of a road - that is required to be able to use this information e.g. in routing engines.
32017-08-08 21:45:43 UTCDylansc These are all tagged according to People For Bikes OpenStreetMap Tagging Guidelines for HAWKs (signaled crosswalks)... I followed the guidelines listed here

These points aren't part of t...
42017-08-08 23:08:41 UTCmueschel This document is a good reference. But there is no reference to the keys Lat, Lon, STINTERSEC I mentioned above, which should not be there.

Ways consist of points, and the crossing tags need to be on a point that belongs to a way. It's as simple as that.

52017-08-15 22:10:50 UTCDylansc Would the best method for me to fix this be for each 131 nodes:
1. go into "edit with iD" edit mode
2. Delete the 3 unnecessary tags (Lat, Lon, and STINTERSEC)
3. snap it to appropriate intersection/roadway

Additionally, I feel I should add some sort of tag that says specifically a H...
62017-08-16 08:11:45 UTCmueschel Yes, this is a possible way.
a) if you use iD, check all tags again after snapping the node to the intersection - some of them are already tagged and this might cause iD to add wrong tags.

b) Are these traffic lights for pedestrians only or do they control the intersection as well?
72017-08-17 18:54:49 UTCDylansc a) noted

b) I think you are incorrect for "if they control the whole intersection, use highway=traffic_lights, there is no further tagging needed" (first off I think you meant to say highway=traffic_signals).

according to:
82017-08-17 18:59:37 UTCmueschel Yes, you are right. I was a too concise here.
I only described the highway=* tag, not the crossing=*, which is equal in both cases.

"There is no further tagging needed..." was meant to be a new paragraph addressing your question on how to make clear it is HAWK.
92017-08-17 19:07:54 UTCDylansc Great! I'll proceed in correcting the errors one by one.

12017-08-11 10:59:42 UTCmueschel Hi,
welcome to OSM. All objects in OSM need to have a tag that describes what they are. Just putting a human readable description on a node won't do the job. The wiki shows how these tags should look like, e.g. here:

12017-08-09 07:00:42 UTCmueschel Hi,
you used the key 'namleg_en' on several boundaries. This key is new and not used in other places. Maybe the usual tags 'official_name', 'official_name:en' or 'full_name' fit?

Cheers, Jan
22017-08-09 14:33:11 UTCUndearius My apologies. I had originally intended to remove these tags but they made it easier for filtering. The value of these tags is their full, proper legal name so they may be useful.
The 'namleg_en' tag is the same as the 'name' tag with the addition of "Township of" or "County of"...
32017-08-10 17:15:54 UTCmueschel 'official_name:en' is used almost 2000 times, and follows the guidelines shown on the Wiki page on name tags.

22017-08-09 09:37:29 UTCddm-dolomitico Hi Jan,

the "Varsure" tag is a editing error (in fact "Varsure" is the name of a location); I corrected the wrong tags with "name: lld" or "loc_name".

Thank you very much for your error reporting. In the future, I will pay more attention to OSM's editing...
32017-08-09 09:51:43 UTCddm-dolomitico Hi Jan,

Cheers, Danilo

could you check the tagging of these imported nodes?
- 'is_in' can not be used to tag addresses. Use addr:street and addr:housenumber instead
- 'Ref:FR:SIREN' should be 'ref:FR:SIREN'
- description1 and description2 are no recognized tags
- most nodes are missing a physical tag, describing ...
22017-08-06 12:55:26 UTCmueschel Is there any chance that this import gets cleaned up?
Various people are doing some corrections on this data, but in the end most of the information remains useless.

this import of fountains doesn't seem to fit to the OSM license.

32017-07-06 08:59:04 UTCmueschel Could you mention this specifically in the changeset comment / source tag? Just so that nobody else gets confused or thinks cc-by is sufficient.

12017-07-26 12:25:48 UTCmueschel Hi,
something went wrong here - these nodes all have tags like "ref=290 = RU-KDA-6" - the key of this tag is 'ref=290' which can't be right. Could you have a look and fix this? It's about 150 different keys.
22017-08-05 18:07:28 UTCmueschel I changed these tags now. Please check if my edit is correct.
12017-08-05 17:46:21 UTCmueschel Hi,
you added many objects with very strange tags here - for example

natural=Chu Thị Thuong Ha

What is the meaning of all this? Pleae have a look to the OSM wiki to learn about how objects have to be tagged to be usable by OSM users.

Cheers, Jan
12017-08-01 19:18:12 UTCmueschel Hi,
there are many nodes which have just strange tags like these:

Was this a mistake?
22017-08-02 07:55:12 UTCCUSPC I have joined a full level rather than just the selection.
Now I've corrected all tags.
thank you
32017-08-05 17:33:46 UTCmueschel They are still there:
12017-08-04 16:50:24 UTCGinaroZ I think mot is correct, as it offers an MOT service?
22017-08-04 17:40:28 UTCmueschel Shouldn't it be amenity=vehicle_inspection or service:vehicle:inspection=yes then? The first is documented and used 800 times, the latter is used 30 times.
32017-08-05 13:14:28 UTCSomeoneElse Something involving MOT would make perfect sense to me - see and for where it's been used before. "inspection" is hardly used for MOTs; see
42017-08-05 13:49:16 UTCmueschel I'm not from the UK, so I didn't hear the term MOT before.
But as far as I see, these tags involving the term MOT are used maybe 50 times in the UK, while all the rest of Europe has the tag amenity=vehicle_inspection used 1300 times. This tag is supported in JOSM and shown e.g. in Osmand as well.

12017-08-03 16:17:57 UTCmueschel Hi,
most of these nodes have only foreign tags which don't look like they should appear in the OSM database, can you check this?

der Rest der Beiträge dieses Benutzers scheint auch größtenteils nicht von ernsthafter Natur zu sein. Ich habe es mir im Detail aber nicht angesehen und habe nicht die Zeit, mich darum zu kümmern.

Viele Grüße

12017-08-01 19:21:48 UTCmueschel Kannst du die ganzen 'capacity' tags an diesem und anderen Nodes überprüfen? Für die Leistung gibt es 'power' als Tag.

12017-08-01 19:45:39 UTCmueschel Hi,
could uou check the roads you added here?
15 of them have only strange tags:
12017-08-01 19:42:25 UTCmueschel Hi,
could you check the nodes you added, some have tags like
ADDRESS=1810 J 6/10 Rd, Fruita, 81521

This looks like a mistake.
12017-08-01 19:34:09 UTCmueschel Hi,
please be a bit careful when uploading changes - I found two relations where you changed an exisying key to 'ы'
22017-08-02 07:39:46 UTCmisht Ok, I'm sorry. Accidentally.
12017-08-01 19:16:24 UTCmueschel Hi,
63 ways got the tag 'wip_remove_me' - was this a mistake?
Cheers, Jan

32017-08-01 14:30:29 UTCmueschel We do have a clear policy that the name tag contains just the actual name and does not contain any description. For this you can use tags like maxweight or hgv. If tools like do not support this, request them to adapt to common OSM tagging rules.
42017-08-01 17:40:00 UTCJay May One question: what will it change for OSM if those border control tagged names are not visible to regular OSM users anyway?
52017-08-01 18:15:40 UTCmueschel Who is a "regular osm user"? There are hundreds of different maps and tools around. All of them render different things. And for example searching for names gets increasingly difficult if we add arbitrary information to the name tag.
62017-08-01 18:52:38 UTCJay May I'm afraid this is not arbitrary info. It is useful info, otherwise I wouldn't waste my time to look for it and reflect it on OSM. Rules are there as an indication, and may sometimes be wrong Some of them must be changed.
You state the policy on names it clear. I'm afraid it isn't. There are a cou...
12017-07-30 16:05:16 UTCmueschel Hi,
I found 12 objects in your uploads with many foreign keys and no common OSM tags. Could you have a look and fix these?

Cheers, Jan
12017-07-30 16:03:55 UTCmueschel Hi,
most of the information you added does not use common tags. Spelling and Upper/Lower case matters a lot for software to be able to interpret these tags, e.g.
name instead of NAME
name:ar instead of Name_ar
place instead of Place
and so on. Could you please fix this?

Cheers, Jan
12017-07-30 15:45:15 UTCmueschel Please be careful what you upload to OSM. It's the second time I'm deleting tags like these:
Simon = Weak
Michael = Strong
Peter = Above Average
(I removed the user names you had there)
12017-07-30 15:37:35 UTCmueschel Hi,
some of the nodes have many foreign tags, could you check that? E.g.

22017-08-01 18:46:51 UTCAlan Bragg Thanks for catching that error and notifying me. I found that I had another similar error which I have corrected.
12017-07-16 13:11:36 UTCmueschel Hi,
you used the tag "access:coach =discouraged" in this changeset. This tag has not been used in other places yet.
I guess the common tag "tourist_bus = discouraged" is what you want to use here?

Cheers, Jan
22017-07-29 11:13:46 UTCgurglypipe Not really. The tagging is meant to reflect a road sign which says “Not suitable for coaches”. The tagging documentation I was following is
32017-07-29 12:40:46 UTCmueschel 'access:' is never a part of those keys. And osm knows two types of busses: bus and tourist_bus. Both are described on the wiki page you linked to. The 'discouraged' part is perfectly fine.
42017-07-29 13:04:36 UTCgurglypipe I was following the example of `access:bicycle=yes` (from that page). I guess the intention of the road sign could be encoded as `bus=discouraged`, `tourist_bus=discouraged`? The sign is probably more targeting the length and wheel base of the vehicles rather than their use as PSVs or multi-person v...
52017-07-29 14:07:38 UTCmueschel I don't know why this is listed there. The correct tag is 'bicycle' and is used 10000 times more often (300 vs 3 million uses)
62017-07-29 16:23:55 UTCgurglypipe OK, changed to bus=discouraged tourist_bus=discouraged in changeset #50675680. I’m not sure if I got all the instances of it, since I can’t get overpass to list any access:coach instances. (I’m obviously using it wrongly.)
72017-07-29 16:41:19 UTCmueschel Goto, Open the wizard and type 'access:coach=* global', click run. There is nothing left.
82017-07-30 08:07:26 UTCgurglypipe Great, thanks
12017-07-27 10:37:56 UTCmueschel Hi,
could you check the tracktype tag of this way?

Cheers, Jan
22017-07-27 11:25:12 UTCwajak corrected. Thanks
12017-07-27 10:32:38 UTCmueschel Hi,
it's preferred to use the key 'alt_name' instead of 'name_1' - alt_name can be searched for (e.g. in the search box on while most tools do not support name_1.

There are 160 nodes on the same spot, all with a lot of foreign tags which don't look like they belong to OSM:

22017-07-26 16:02:00 UTCmueschel PS: I doubt that these lights are 4.5 km high. 'height' uses meter as units, not millimeters.

12017-07-26 12:38:38 UTCmueschel Hi,
das tag 'vtm = yes' - soll das 'atm' heißen?
Gruß, Jan
22017-07-26 13:28:20 UTCFuss-im-Ohr jetzt hab ich schon einen Note angefügt.....
32017-07-26 13:29:49 UTCFuss-im-Ohr dafür stimmt aber die FaxNr nicht ganz, das merkt natürlich keiner :-)
42017-07-26 13:35:26 UTCmueschel Das übersieht man durchaus, vor allem wenn da nur ein Link steht und keine Erklärung. Da es sich um eine Bezahlmethode handelt, sollte der Tag wohl 'payment:vtm = yes' heißen, besser noch payment:vtm-fair, damit es eindeutiger zugeordnet ist.
52017-07-26 13:42:54 UTCFuss-im-Ohr das macht sogar Sinn, da es noch ein "neuer" Tag ist müsste man es im Wiki auch mal zur Diskussion stellen. Im IRC gab es noch keine Meinung dazu
62017-07-26 13:53:44 UTCmueschel Du kannst es einfach hier eintragen:
Das Tagging-Schema ist ja etabliert, da braucht es meiner Meinung nach keine Diskussion.
12017-07-25 11:27:01 UTCmueschel Was meinst du denn mit "scheduled"? Üblicherweise nehmen wir doch preproposed / proposed / planned / construction.
Gruß, Jan
22017-07-27 21:51:51 UTCJojo4u Ich dachte ich mache nochmal Werbung für mein scheduled-Proposal. Aber jetzt am Desktop sehe ich bei Taginfo nur 2 Objekte. Aber planned wird ja auch noch nicht gerendert...
32017-09-26 09:18:16 UTCGerdP Bitte ändern. Ich finde, wir haben wirklich genug etablierte Möglichkeiten, einen Weg zu mappen, den es nicht gibt.
ciao, Gerd
42017-10-03 19:27:36 UTCJojo4u Welches Tag würdest du bevorzugen? Proposed oder planned?
52017-10-03 19:32:08 UTCGerdP Ich kenne die Sachlage nicht. Scheduled klingt nach "irgendwas in Richtung Bau passiert bereits" und das wäre dann mehr planned als proposed.
62017-10-05 17:55:17 UTCJojo4u habe es als highway=planned gesetzt

12017-07-05 11:28:43 UTCmueschel Hi,
the key "bike_friend" has not been used anywhere in OSM so far. I guess you mean "motorcycle_friendly" -

And: Please don't forget to add comments to changesets!

22017-07-05 12:43:43 UTCHammershoej Hi,
bike_friend is a new tag. It is used to show that the location in question is registered as bike friendly. It is a programme offered by the local tourist organisation for Southern Funen:

32017-07-05 12:46:23 UTCHammershoej As to writing changeset comments, I admit to skipping. This is a limit to both Potlatch and iD. It simply takes too much time when there is a seperate changeset for each of 90 changes. Problem is that for each point I have to return to the main page, search for the location and then edit. I can't do...
42017-07-05 12:49:23 UTCmueschel The term "bike" is not used in OSM because it is ambiguous - it could be motorcycle of bicycle. i suggest to follow the existing tagging scheme of "motorcycle_friendly" and use "bicycle_friendly".

Apart from that, if you add data from an external source, you have to ...
52017-07-05 13:52:07 UTCHammershoej License: I know this of cause and have cleared it before starting.

As to naming, I see your point, but I also find it counter-intuitive to tag a programme called 'Bike Friend' as 'cycle_friend'.

Please hold your horses and questions until I have written the documentation.

Cheers, Jan
12017-07-03 10:50:35 UTCmueschel Hi,
I understand that it is important to collect information about emergency plans. But I don't think it helps to add hundreds of nodes without any meaningful tag. This data is just in the database, but no tool will be able to find these nodes or display them in any meaningful way.
22017-07-03 11:28:58 UTCbsmith54 Hi,

12017-07-03 09:02:04 UTCmueschel Hi,
did you really want to add this huge amount of foreign tags to ways like this one:

Thanks for checking
12017-07-02 13:59:42 UTCmueschel Hi,
sure you can add the name in any language. You have to find the 3-letter code of the language (wikipedia is very helpful) and add it to the name key.
If it's not a language, but just a different name, you can use e.g. old_name or loc_name keys.

12017-06-29 21:07:22 UTCmueschel Hi,

Cheers, Jan
12017-06-28 07:38:16 UTCmueschel Hi,
you added the key "dbh" on these nodes. It is not used anywhere else up to now - what is meaning of this key?
22017-07-07 17:42:52 UTCUndearius I suppose late is better than never.
DBH is Diameter at Breast Height.
It was part of an ongoing discussion on the import mailing list and has since been converted to circumference.
These nodes will be deleted and replaced with the proper ones.
12017-06-28 07:37:03 UTCmueschel Hi,
all of these ways have many tags which don't seem to belong to the OSM database, e.g.:

22017-06-28 12:22:34 UTCioanam_telenav Hello!
Sorry, it was my mistake. I have changed and uploaded the tags according to the OSM database.
32017-06-28 13:19:54 UTCioanam_telenav I have worked on a specific data set and I have accidentally uploaded it. But I have deleted everything that has mistakenly been uploaded. Now it should be fine.
12017-06-27 13:17:57 UTCmueschel Hi,

12017-06-27 11:32:19 UTCmueschel Hi,

12017-06-25 17:15:13 UTCmueschel Woher stammt die Information, dass das hier die K246 ist? Schilder habe ich da bis jetzt noch keine sehen können.
22017-06-25 18:56:46 UTCfurban das habe ich wohl hier gelesen
32017-06-25 19:05:44 UTCTourenbikerFKB

Hier wird sie als L3351. Die frühere L3351 durch den Ortskern wurde zurückgestuft.

Am besten mal bei Hessen Mobil erkundigen.
42017-06-25 19:06:28 UTCTourenbikerFKB ...soll heißen: mit L3351 bezeichnet.
52017-06-25 20:27:01 UTCmueschel Genau, sie soll die L3351 werden. Habe aber keine Beschilderung gesehen, dass das schon passiert ist.
62017-06-26 06:03:28 UTCfurban Dann bau es doch um. Kann man ja immer noch wieder anders machen. Aber es klingt ja nur logisch das diese Straße eher mal ein Lxxx als ein Kxxx sein sollte.
12017-06-25 18:11:31 UTCmueschel Hi,
you added the key "lcr_ref" to several roads - did you mean "lcn_ref"?

Cheers, Jan
22017-06-25 18:16:55 UTCSebastian Pleško yes. i'm going to soon remove it anyway and make "relations" instead. i finally got a map from the local municipality (was really hard to find) where exactly the bicycle paths go.
12017-06-24 20:25:20 UTCmueschel Hi,
you used the key "ScientificName" on some nodes - in OSM we have the tag "species" (as well as "genus") for that. If you want to tag the English name of the species, you can use "species:en".

22017-06-29 22:21:06 UTCSK53 Also the key taxon (effectively synonymous with species a lot of the time, but most useful when cultivars come into play as with many stree trees)
12017-06-24 20:15:14 UTCmueschel Hi,
Kannst du hier nochmal nach dem payment-Tag schauen? Mit eckigen Klammern kann man da wohl nicht bezahlen :-)

welcome to OSM!
could you explain the meaning of the tags you added here? I don't fully see what you want to express and in the current state it also can not be interpreted by software.
You could have a look to the wiki to see how bus stops are currently mapped.

If there is some temporary construction, it's best to use the "temporary" prefix or "conditional" suffix, see:

Cheers, Jan
22017-06-21 11:53:04 UTCM!dgard Hi Jan

Tags with capital letters don't fit in with the other tags. For example for emergency=aed it was voted explicitly to use lowercase.

I'm aware that moped_A is more popular at the moment, but unless it is standardized to use uppercase (there're only two mentions about it in the wiki, no d...
32017-06-21 12:27:28 UTCmueschel Hi,
you're right, upper case keys are rare. But looking at the statistics, we have e.g. 550 moped_A, but only 30 moped_a. In my opinion, the best way is to first adopt the more common scheme and in parallel start a discussion in the local community. Then we can do an automated retagging once there ...
42017-06-21 12:39:33 UTCM!dgard (Erratum: it was voted as emergency=defibrillator, not aed, but the vote for the lowercase option got significantly more votes than the uppercase one.)
52017-06-21 12:59:28 UTCM!dgard > the best way is to first adopt the more common scheme and in parallel start a discussion in the local community

The problem is that the discussion will cite usage numbers, they are one of the metrics that are used to do an informal vote. I don't support that though, those are too easily infl...
62017-06-21 13:08:28 UTCM!dgard Matching some more different combinations with the mopeds:

Uppercase: 706 ways
Lowercase: 379 ways

So the difference is definitely not an order of magnitude.

22017-06-21 07:27:24 UTCProtoxenus Die Brücke ist so um die 50 Jahre alt und nicht für das andauernde Befahren mit 40t-LKW konstruiert.

32017-06-21 07:32:21 UTCmueschel Alles klar, das würde dann so aussehen:
maxweight:lanes = 12t |
mindistance:hgv:lanes = | 50
Bei ":lanes" werden einfach die Eigenschaften aller Spuren aufgezählt, von links nach rechts, getrennt mit "|", Spuren ohne Eigenschaften bleiben leer.

22017-06-17 08:46:06 UTCmatchman Hallo Jan,
ähnlich dem mtb:scale tag geht es mir darum die Oberflächenbeschaffenheit aus der Sicht eines Rennradfahrers darzustellen und diese zu klassifizieren. Der smoothness key ist hierfür leider nicht präzise genug.

12017-06-14 12:51:42 UTCmueschel Hi,
could you check the spelling of the key "Source:maxspeed" on 90 ways? It should be lower case, 'source:maxspeed'.

Cheers, Jan
12017-06-14 11:59:14 UTCmueschel Hi,
could you check the 'capacity:' tag here? Something's missing.
Cheers, Jan
12017-06-14 11:55:32 UTCmueschel Hi, could you check this way?
I guess those tags shouldn't be there, or the way should be closed or part of a relation. And I don't see the meaning of the 'fff' key.

Cheers, Jan
22017-06-14 13:54:52 UTCMichaelCollinson Thanks Jan for finding this. Incomplete edit. I have completed it now.
12017-06-14 11:48:15 UTCmueschel Kann man das wieder löschen?
22017-06-18 08:48:59 UTCRisou Ja
12017-06-14 11:36:38 UTCmueschel This changeset contains another set of 380 misspelled address tags, addr_house,

12017-06-14 11:31:07 UTCmueschel Hi,
ich habe zwei Tipps zum Erfassen von Wegweisern:
a) wenn du Keys wie 'direction_west_1' benutzt, schreibe 'direction_west:1', das ist die übliche Form zum Nummerieren.
b) Ich empfehle Relationen um solche Schilder zu erfassen, das ist wesentlich genauer und einfacher auszuwerten, siehe: ...
12017-06-13 10:52:01 UTCmueschel Hi,
could you check the tagging of this container?

"domestic_oil" is not used as a key up to now. Maybe "recycling:cooking_oil = yes"?

Cheers, Jan
12017-06-13 10:49:54 UTCmueschel Hi,
kannst du hier mal nach dem Namen schauen? Da stimmt das Tagging nicht.

Gruss, Jan
12017-06-13 10:48:04 UTCmueschel Hi,
could you check this place node?

"Lera = asphalt" looks like a mistake.
Cheers, Jan
22017-06-13 10:59:15 UTCzvenzzon Thanks a lot, it's now corrected.
12017-06-13 10:38:34 UTCmueschel Hi,
the tag you put on this node looks a bit strange:
xmas \t= Traffic calming bump
Did you mean "traffic_calming = bump"?

Cheers, Jan
22017-06-13 12:50:31 UTCszydzio Hi! Yes indeed, I meant traffic_calming = bump. I was just an old node imported by OsmAnd which for some unknown reason adds this strange tag. I cleaned it up - thanks for the hint!
12017-06-13 10:35:02 UTCmueschel Hi,

Tags wie dieses sehen nach einem Fehler aus:

12017-06-13 10:25:40 UTCmueschel Hi,

12017-06-13 10:23:11 UTCmueschel Hi,
in your edits in this area I saw about 80 cases of a spelling mistake "destionation" instead of "destination". Could you please check this?

Cheers, Jan
12017-06-12 10:54:59 UTCmueschel Hi,
could you check this barrier and the one close by?
The tag "hoy =30" looks like a mistake.

Cheers, Jan
22017-06-12 12:31:35 UTCAllroads Yes, changed it. i can not clarify, why this tag. I believe, I merged it. And was already there.
12017-06-12 10:40:55 UTCmueschel Hi,
you added the tag "source=google" here. Please not that information from google is not allowed to be added in OSM due to the terms of usage / licenses. Please remove the information you got from Google, otherwise we might have to delete the whole object.
12017-06-11 10:34:31 UTCmueschel Moin,
kannst du bitte hier nochmal über die Adressen schauen? Das Tag "addr:coutry=DE" sollte eigentlich "addr:country=DE" sein - ist aber eigentlich auch unnötig, weil Grenzen bei uns sehr gut erfasst sind.

12017-06-11 10:22:50 UTCmueschel Hi,
you added the tag "alt_ name" to 31 streets. Could you fix the spelling of the key, there should be no space, like "alt_name".

Cheers, Jan
12017-06-07 20:15:57 UTCtrigpoint Hi, this gate looks a little wrong as it has 3 ways connecting to it. It needs to be separate from the junction otherwise it is impossible to tell which routes pass through the gate,

12017-06-06 10:56:28 UTCmueschel Hi,
this is another set of nodes with no valid tag, but a lot of foreign stuff. Please clean up your data before importing it to OSM!

12017-06-06 10:38:28 UTCmueschel Hi,
could you check this roundabout? It has several strange tags.

Cheers, Jan
22017-06-08 00:10:19 UTCSunfishtommy I took away the tags I don't know where they came from.
12017-06-05 20:39:08 UTCmueschel Hi,
you put the tag "dsscreated=#brunch" on several POIs, could you explain it?

Btw, please have a look to the Wiki about tagging of opening_hours - there is a well defined syntax to make it machine-readable.

12017-06-05 20:34:30 UTCmueschel Hi,
you put these tags on some ways:

maxweight = 3.5
maxweight:condition = yes @ service
The conditional tag doesn't seem to be right (yes is not a valid value for maxweight and @ service is not defined)

Can you explain what you want to tag here?

Cheers, Jan
22017-06-05 20:37:43 UTCYod4z the way is limited to 3.5 t but if the hgv is for service (trash, road construction...) it can go even if it has more than 3.5t.

The tag looks a bit strange:
"3 =\tcement_block"

Cheers, Jan
12017-06-04 19:06:46 UTCmueschel Hi,

these wells contain quite some foreign tags. E.g. lon and lat should not appear as tags in OSM, keys should not use capital letters. Could you have a look and correct this?

Cheers, Jan
12017-06-02 10:52:11 UTCmueschel Hi,
did you really mean "bear = yes"?
And, could you move the node to one side of the road? I guess the restaurant is not in the middle of the street?
12017-06-02 10:45:21 UTCmueschel Hi,

22017-05-31 10:12:44 UTCmueschel Hi,
both versions are in use. The reason for my edit was your spelling mistake "constraction"
32017-05-31 15:50:07 UTCfreeExec It was necessary to correct the typo.
And now marked by a kind of amenity that does not exist in reality. Secondly, after the opening, more work is done to return the tag.
42017-05-31 16:25:37 UTCmueschel Alright, I changed it back.
12017-05-31 09:09:03 UTCopendcc Bicycle = official on a non rectangular building? Are you sure?
22017-05-31 09:19:28 UTCmueschel You're right, that's strange. I didn't put the tag there. I fixed the spelling of the key, but didn't notice it being strange for a building.

32017-05-29 17:14:17 UTCmueschel Dann kommentiere ich auch hier und nicht in meinem Changeset:
Erst highway = proposed, dann highway = construction (zunächst mit Tippfehler den ich korrigiert habe). Die letzte Änderung von t2425 verstehe ich nicht ganz, aber das hast du dann ja wieder geradegezogen.
12017-05-28 10:53:58 UTCmueschel Hi,

building \ttran thanh toan
highway \tdhok
landuse \t16092737352
place \t0340302730

This looks like something went wrong during an import. Can this be reverted?
12017-05-28 10:50:21 UTCmueschel Hi,
you used the key "traffic_signals:directions" 16 times - the correct spelling would be "traffic_signals:direction". Could you fix this?

Cheers, Jan
12017-05-26 08:59:48 UTCmueschel Hi,
deine erste Version "bus_bay =left" ist die laut Wiki korrekte. Das Suffix :left soll nur verwendet werden um weitere Eigenschaften anzugeben. Und ist auch nur dann nötig, wenn bus_bay = both und die Eigenschaften auf beiden Seiten unterschiedlich sind.

du hast dieser Straße zwei maxspeeds verpasst, kannst du das mal nachprüfen?

Anscheinend hatte vorher jede Fahrtrichtung ein unterschiedliches maxspeed (30 hin und 50 zurück), woraus dann beim Zusammenfügen "maxspeed=30;50" wurde.

12017-05-19 10:48:55 UTCmueschel Hi,
it looks like you used these tags to describe the Symbol for this route?

We do have the key "osmc:symbol" to describe such symbols.

Cheers, Jan
12017-05-19 08:54:15 UTCmueschel Hi,
I saw that you are adding destination tags to roads. I would like to remind you that the order of the parts of a key is important, it should always be:

I saw a few keys where this order is mixed.
Cheers, Jan
12017-05-19 08:46:43 UTCmueschel Hi,
could you please check this import of nodes? All of them have many foreign keys which should not appear in the OSM data base. The one common key (building=yes) should not be there, because these nodes are not the actual building, which are already in the database.

12017-05-16 10:50:28 UTCmueschel Hi,
some of the ways have strange tags, can they be removed? All necessary information is contained in the relations you added as well.

12017-05-16 10:35:00 UTCmueschel Hi,
I would like to point you to the "Date Namespace": This makes historical entries like yours much easier to read, e.g.
Instead of:
was:2:name \tБородинская улица
was:2:name:end_date \t1918
was:2:name:fi \tBorodinonkatu
was:2:name:ru \tБородинская ули...
12017-05-14 17:54:29 UTCPeilscheibe Hallo mueschel, gibt es irgendeinen besonderen Grund für die Entfernung einer zutreffenden Information? Wurde das Schild geändert?
22017-05-14 17:57:03 UTCmueschel Die Information war doppelt vorhanden. Ich habe nur eine der beiden Angaben "Rietheim 4.3 km;Terrassenfreibad 0.4 km" entfernt.
32017-05-14 20:52:04 UTCPeilscheibe Das war kein Duplikat, das war ein Hinweis auf einen Fehler am Schild. Genauer: was Du gelöscht hast, ist exakt der Text, der auf dem Schild steht (*:signposted). Ich habe das mal wiederhergestellt.
42017-05-14 20:59:30 UTCmueschel Dann schreib doch da bitte eine note="Schreibfehler 'Terasse' auch auf Schild vorhanden", das verstehen dann auch andere Mapper. Neu erfundene Tags, deren Wert eine (fast) Kopie eines anderen Tags sind, versteht niemand und verwirren nur.
12017-05-08 18:50:54 UTCmueschel Hi,
welcome to OSM.
What did you try to add to the database? All nodes you added have some foreign tags which should not be here, and don't have any meaningful ones.
22017-05-14 14:14:45 UTCmueschel I just reverted these edits as they did not contain any valuable additional information to data already existing.
32017-05-14 20:43:07 UTCgeow Hi cstp, if you are intending to create a route for ski mountaineering (scialpinismo), you might use a route relation
with "type=route + route=piste + piste:type=skitour" see or

12017-05-13 13:00:50 UTCmueschel Hi,
you put the key "gateway = yes" on this node - did you mean "barrier = gate"?

Cheers, Jan
12017-05-13 11:41:03 UTCmueschel Hi,
I found some ways with all foreign tags, and no usual OSM tags:
Could you have a look?
Cheers, Jan
22017-05-13 19:38:58 UTCRichard L Fixed my one and also another one I found. Thanks for notifying
12017-05-12 10:58:17 UTCmueschel Hi,
could you check the Korean key on this relation:
It's new and I don't really see where it comes from.
22017-05-12 21:06:15 UTCpyram Sorry, maybe a copy&paste-error (no idea).
Thanks for the error check.
Now I fixed the needless one-way-relation too (=> way).
