12018-06-19 20:56:57 UTCHjart Ok, maybe this one should have been documented a bit better: https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/AutoAWS#autoAWS_0.3_rc1
22018-06-19 20:59:45 UTCmueschel Sorry, I overlooked this - a Google search for "autoaws osm" didn't show something relevant.
I added it again: https://www.openstreetmap.org/changeset/59990763
32018-06-20 22:15:02 UTCHjart I'll recommend you search directly on the OSM wiki
42018-06-20 22:35:20 UTCmueschel Unfortunately this would miss discussions and "documentation" that is only in the mailing lists or forums - many people just don't use the Wiki.
12018-06-20 19:49:03 UTCmueschel Hi,
I noticed this changeset because you introduced several new keys like "service:bicycle:rental:opening_hours", which are not used in other places. But the tagging seems strange - you tagged it as bicycle_parking, but it seems to be a station for rental bikes. Could you clarify this?
22018-06-21 08:33:38 UTCVladimír Domes Hi, Yes I can.
Rekola bikesharing company is new in Ostrava city. They use threir own bicycle stands and also existing stands (bicycle_parking).

Firstly I tagged their own stands as bicycle_rental, but we have talk in our Czech community (https://openstreetmap.cz/talkcz/c2497) and I changed bicy...
12018-06-20 11:30:38 UTCmueschel Hi,
I found 5 ways like this one with only foreign tags. Could you check these?

Thanks, Jan
12018-06-20 11:22:33 UTCmueschel Hi,
could you check the name tag of this area?
https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/12304410

Thanks, Jan
22018-06-20 11:46:02 UTCxinot Fixed. I probably was bit too hurry.
12018-06-20 11:18:29 UTCmueschel Hallo,
kannst du bei 17 Wegen nochmal nach den Tags schauen? Es ist "parking:lane....", nicht "parkin:lane..."

Danke, Jan
22018-06-20 17:13:13 UTCBER319 Hallo Jan,

vielen Dank für den Hinweis. Ich wollte sowieso gerade noch einmal über diesen Bereich schauen, ob alles richtig ist.

Viele Grüße

12018-06-20 11:17:16 UTCmueschel Hi,
could you check the spelling of tags? It's "intermittent", not "intermitent".

Thanks, Jan
12018-06-19 20:48:27 UTCmueschel Hi,
you used the tag "fuel:GASOLINA_CORRIENTE = yes" on two gas stations - could you explain what this means? This tag is not used in any place.
12018-06-19 19:25:16 UTCmueschel Hi,
you added the tag "VMI=yes" to these buildings. This is not a common to mark that these buildings belong to one group. I guess you're looking for a tag like "operator=VMI".

Cheers, Jan
12018-06-19 18:15:41 UTCmueschel Hi,
you added many Japanese keys for 2 recycling containers - could you change those tags to the common ones as they are described in the Wiki?

Thanks!
12018-06-19 18:02:01 UTCmueschel Hi,
it looks like this import of data went wrong. Most of the objects have only strange tags like the ones below.

Also: if this is imported data, the source has to be clearly stated - "Bing" is most likely not correct.

12018-06-18 13:49:20 UTCmueschel Hi,
you used tags like "FR:TRANSDOME:CODE_ARRET" here. These are new and not used in other places yet.
In any case reference numbers like these should be in a "ref" tag, e.g. "ref:FR:TRANSDOME:CODE_ARRET".

welcome to OSM!
I saw some tags like "전주제일고 정문 \t정문" in your edits. Please note that all tags in OSM have to use an English key, like those described in the Wiki. Here, the key might be "name". Could you check the edits you made and change the tags to comm...

12018-06-13 09:07:36 UTCmueschel Hi,
welcome to OSM!
In your edits I found some tags like "building=house=yes" - this is a slight mistake and should be "building = house". There is always exactly one '=', separating a key and a value.

Could you check the buildings you added and change this tag?

welcome to OSM!
Please take some time and read the introduction (provided in the editor) how adding features to the map works. You need to follow certain schemes to make sure that all users and all software can make use of your data.

Jan
12018-06-01 08:55:54 UTCmueschel Hi,
it looks like something went wrong with this import. 1096 ways have some strange tags:
Cls_CheFor=04
Gestion=MFFP

Could you check and fix this?
22018-06-01 09:22:47 UTCMateusz Konieczny - bot account Can you link the place where this import was discussed?
32018-06-02 15:38:18 UTCMaximusSayan it does look like there was error on the import. will fix it and see to find where was the problem. the tagging have been made to keep the information from the MERN and the use of these off road road section in the ZEC.
42018-06-12 10:44:38 UTCmueschel There are also roads overlapping already existing ways like this one: https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/592401176

I think that this import should be reverted and then reimported in a clean way.
52018-06-13 09:53:15 UTCMateusz Konieczny Note that as it is apparently undiscussed import it may be reverted without any discussion.

12018-06-12 08:56:49 UTCmueschel Hi,
please don't add tags like electricity_payments or cash_access to OSM - this is really private information that must not appear in a public data base. Could you please remove those tags?

12018-06-11 10:34:08 UTCmueschel Hi,
you're using the tag "tower_type" - the correct spelling is "tower:type". Would you mind checking the nodes you added and fix this mistake?

Cheers, Jan
12018-06-08 18:40:16 UTCmueschel Hi,
you used the tags access=no, access:residents=yes here. There is a more common way:
access = residents (used more than 1000 times). Would you mind changing that?

Jan

12018-06-06 21:13:40 UTCmueschel Hi,
you added these tags to several roads:

The first tag is new and looks like some mistake. Could you specify what the surface actually is?

12018-06-05 21:44:45 UTCSowa1980 Здравствуйте, поясните причину удаления тегов с объектов? Эти теги были проставлены согласно договоренности , жду отката Ваших правок.
22018-06-05 21:50:44 UTCmueschel Sorry, I don't speak Russian.
Names of mapping projects and contributors should not appear as tags on objects but rather in the changeset tags.
32018-06-05 21:56:17 UTCSowa1980 Там в тегах указана фамилия, по тому как проекты типовые , этот момент был обсужден в чате телеграмм в россии , вот что бы было понятно о чем речь ссылка https://ru.wikipedia.org...
42018-06-05 22:08:29 UTCmueschel yes, i know what a water tower is.
If you could describe what the meaning of "project:author" is, we could look for a better tag - this looked a lot like someone who wanted to put his own name into the tags. If you want to introduce a new tag like this, please write a page in the OSM wiki...

62018-06-05 22:19:16 UTCSowa1980 И да в проекте ОСМ не обязательно закреплять это в OSM wiki , согласно правилам проекта человек может применят теги не закрепленные в OSM wiki , которых там еще нет.
72018-06-05 22:37:29 UTCmueschel Ok, tagging the style of a water tower is indeed useful information, but this was not at all clear reading the tag.

I think you should consider changing the tag - "project:author' is in no way related to what you describe here - that would rather be something like 'water_tower:type' or 'wate...

122018-06-06 15:38:57 UTCmueschel I now used the tag "water_tower:design" - because there are already a few "tower:design" in the database, and this seems to make sense.

142018-06-06 18:47:06 UTCmueschel Sorry, the automatic translation of this is just incomprehensible.
In English, the word "author" doesn't exist in the context of designing buildings.

12018-06-06 11:26:57 UTCmueschel Hi,
could you explain what the tag "Cremerie" on this vending machine means? https://www.openstreetmap.org/node/5638002199
It's not a common and known tag.

Thanks, Jan

12018-06-06 11:11:52 UTCmueschel Hi,
you added tags like "FieldPapers_id=KO13049081" to all of these buildings - these tags should not be uploaded to the OSM database becasus they don't contain any relevant information about the building itself. Could you have a look and remove these tags?

Cheers, Jan
12018-06-05 07:23:51 UTCmueschel Hi,
could you check the spelling of tags on the tunnels? It's 'length', not 'lenght'.

12018-06-05 07:22:15 UTCmueschel Hi,

12018-06-03 16:38:40 UTCmueschel Hi,
you added many buildings with a 'name' tag - are these the names of the families living there? Please don't add such private information, OSM is not the right place for that.

Jan
12018-06-03 16:33:40 UTCmueschel Hi,
you used the tags 'telado' and 'Telado' here - these tags are not in use in any other place. Could you explain what they mean? In general, only tags that are documented in the Wiki should be used.

Jan
12018-06-03 16:31:24 UTCmueschel Hi,
you used the tags like

what do you mean be 'unoccupied' on this node?
https://www.openstreetmap.org/node/5008337295

Maybe 'disused:'?

Jan
22018-06-01 12:15:48 UTCGer Walsh Probably something that I should research further on the wiki- the term "disused", in my mind, has suggestions of "derelict" or "abandoned"... I merely meant that it is a viable unit, available/in suitable condition to be rented, and waiting for a tenant. But I am happy...
32018-06-01 12:54:28 UTCmueschel Ah, ok.
There is either the 'temporary:' prefix
https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Proposed_features/temporary_(conditional)

Or you could add it to the opening_hours key, e.g. as "2018 Jan 01 - 2018 Jun 25 off"
12018-06-01 11:30:58 UTCmueschel Hallo,

22018-06-03 11:04:27 UTCbkn_jap I checked the wiki, I guess it's more "disused". Thanks for the suggestion of "abandoned".

22018-05-29 04:04:24 UTCnammala Hi mueschel,

Thanks for flagging the issue , this was caused due to fixing connectivity issues in the city through JOSM and from next time we will make sure that this doesn't happen.

Regards,
nammala
12018-05-28 10:05:41 UTCmueschel Hi,
you used tags that are not common:
nom_depto = GENERAL ROCA
nom_prov = RIO NEGRO

Can they be replaced by a known key? E.g. is_in:province?

Cheers, Jan
22018-05-28 11:52:11 UTCHernan Hello! Yes, I fixed it.

Jan
12018-05-24 11:06:35 UTCmueschel Hi,
I found several 'addr:village' tags on your landuse areas. This looks like a mistake. I think some of them should be addr:city or addr:county. Could you have a look and adjust this?

Thanks, Jan
12018-05-24 10:40:38 UTCmueschel Hi,
welcome to OSM!.
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.
On this node, the 'payment:...' tags should be different, using tags as they are described in the Wiki:

12018-05-24 09:13:55 UTCmueschel Please update your GoMap app - this version has a bug and produces wrong tags like "payment:payment:cash".
12018-05-23 07:55:41 UTCmueschel Hi,
these changes have a tag "add:region" which should be "addr:region".

What is the meaning of the key "building:sqmeters" on nodes?

And: Your user page is missing a link to the description of the import in the Wiki.

Cheers, Jan

Thanks for catching the typo.
We are working on the Wiki.
12018-05-21 12:58:33 UTCmueschel Hi,
I saw tags like "addr:unit_7" on the buildings here. Adding the same tag several times with numbers '_7' is not really common and not supported by most software. I suggest to consider using a single tag and a range of numbers instead, like
addr:unit = 51 - 58

Jan
22018-05-22 17:06:27 UTCmrsfakename Hello and thanks for the input. I'll start incorporating the changes for all the apartment complexes I've been working on. However, if there's a break in apartment numbers what's the standard for entry? For instance, a building has apartments 1-12, no apartment 13, but does have apartments 14-20?...
32018-05-22 19:05:28 UTCmueschel If several buildings share a housenumber, you can add the same "addr:housenumber" to all of them.
If these buildings are all within one area, like an amenity=school area, you can add the address on this area instead of the buildings themselves.

You can use addr:unit = 1-13;20-28 (lis...
12018-05-22 11:00:58 UTCmueschel Hi,
you're using the tag "stopping_patern" here. The correct spelling is "stopping_pattern". I just fixed the ones I found.

12018-05-22 08:48:32 UTCmueschel Hallo,
du hast hier 'left:kerb' und 'left:kerb:height' verwendet. 'left' wird in der Regel als Suffix verwendet, richtig w're also kerb:left und kerb:height:left.

Ich habe die Tags angepasst
12018-05-21 14:38:57 UTCmueschel Hi,
you added 14 objects with strange tags:

Could you have a look and fix these?

Thanks,
Jan
22018-05-21 14:55:11 UTCrsavoye Thanks, that obscure tag slipped through the data conversion from the original shapefile. I updated those objects without the tag, and fixed the bug in my conversion software.
12018-05-21 13:09:17 UTCmueschel Hi,
welcome to OSM!
You used several new and uncommon tags here:

- this should be part of the address, here: addr:city=Bagamoyo

12018-05-21 13:05:55 UTCmueschel Hi,
you introduced a new tag here, "entrance:step:height".
The simpler "step:height" is already used 500 times by 40 users. Could you think about using the same tag here?

Cheers, Jan
22018-05-21 16:14:50 UTCfrosm Hello,
Thanks for the comment.
I also use step:height on entrance to describe the step:height.

12018-05-21 12:56:14 UTCmueschel Hi,
you added 10 nodes with a strange tag:

Could you have a look and fix this (e.g. change to common tags)?

Cheers, Jan
12018-05-20 14:48:20 UTCmueschel Hi,
you added several nodes with a tag "splitPoint". This is no common tag - could you explain what it means?

Thanks, Jan
22018-05-21 00:21:30 UTCAdiatma IRM-RV Hi Jan, thank you for bringing this up. SplitPoint is our internal sign as a boundary mark for the intersection of the Tasking Manager box. It should not have been uploaded. My bad & I already deleted it. I will pay more attention to recheck befor upload. Thank you so much Jan.

12018-05-19 10:55:13 UTCmueschel Hi,

22018-05-16 15:35:05 UTCmueschel Es gibt durchaus gute Gründe nur die ID und keine kompletten URLs in OSM zu haben.

12018-05-15 10:59:45 UTCmueschel Hi,
could you check the tagging of these objects?
They do have very strange name tags like 'Ponto F 38,424444N 9,0886111W'. This can't be an actual name.
And it's 'protect_class', not 'protected_class'.

Please don't forget to add the source of your information to the changeset!
22018-06-11 12:30:38 UTCFilohipo Ponto F. and other points named "Ponto" are points that limit the protected area of "Parque Marinho Luis Saldanha". They are mentioned witl lat and long in the law that created it. They are inportant for openseamap.
12018-05-15 10:56:47 UTCmueschel Hallo,

in your edits, I saw several tags like "bobby444:schema" - could you explain what it means? It's very uncommon to put ones username in a tag.

And: There is no information about the source. "esri World Imagery" is obviously wrong.

Thanks, Jan
12018-05-09 11:58:29 UTCmueschel Hi,
you added the tag "recycling:Olio_usato" here. What kind of oil is it? We do have the tags "recycling:cooking_oil" or "recycling:motor_oil" to be more precise.

Jan

Corrected, thx.
12018-05-09 11:55:49 UTCmueschel Typically toilets do use other tags.
For example:

hand_wash_point -> toilets:handwashing
how_many_chambers -> toilets:num_chambers
type_of_toilet -> toilets:disposal
12018-05-09 11:51:13 UTCmueschel Hi,
the tag "gender_type" is not common. OSM uses "gender=male/female/mixed".

the tag "type" is not used for schools. We do use "school=*" or "isced:level".
12018-05-09 11:49:09 UTCmueschel Hi,
the tags "cost_per_litre", "cost_per_liter" and "cost_in_ksh" do not fit to our usual tags.

OSM knows fee = yes/no as well as charge=*

The tag "village" is not common as well. To note the location we use "is_in:...=*"

Thank you so much for letting us know about this. We will work in fixing these. We have deleted most of them already. But I guess we missed a couple of the pointers. Will rectify it soon. Thanks again!

12018-05-01 09:26:13 UTCmueschel Hi,
I found many objects with tags like these:
Opening_hours=24_7
Photo=1524481337267.jpg
Village=Upper Kitheini
type_of_facility=Water pipeline
wb_pb:id=21640565
This information might be correct, but is rather useless - the tags don't follow any established tagging schem...
22018-05-08 09:19:35 UTCmuindre Hi Mueschel, tried writing back to you explaining about the tags but it seems our message was never delivered. We are already in the process cleaning up the data and fixing the tags.
32018-05-08 20:24:22 UTCmueschel Hi,
perfect that you take care. In total I found 50 different tags which are not used in any other place. Most of them can easily be changed to common and documented keys.
Just send me a message if I can assist in any way.
Jan
12018-05-08 13:01:57 UTCmueschel Hi,
could you explain the meaning of these Relations? They don't seem to have any known tag.

Jan
22018-05-08 13:49:44 UTCGeodemaria Hi Jan, I used the generic relationship "building" = "house". I found the tags here https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/IT:Map_Features#Abitazioni

I hope I was clear.
See you soon!
32018-05-08 20:18:05 UTCmueschel Hi,
I think there are several issues here. First, all buildings are mapped twice, for example:
https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/586368852
https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/586355996
These are two ways for the same building. One should be removed. In total there are 1339 of these errors in the v...
42018-05-08 21:18:41 UTCGeodemaria Hello, good evening. you are definitely right. I have brought back information from the initial shape file that is not needed. in the coming days I will modify all the problems encountered. this is my first insertion of this scope. sorry.


12018-05-08 12:59:39 UTCmueschel Hi,
could you check the tagging of all these objects? It's 'addr:state', not 'add:state'.

Jan
22018-05-08 14:19:34 UTCmaning Thanks for flagging, obviously a mistake. Fixing here: https://www.openstreetmap.org/changeset/58790245
12018-05-07 20:12:50 UTCmueschel Would you please check the edits and not reintroduce wrong tags by doing reverts blindly? And: if you comment a changeset of another user, please wait for an answer, otherwise discussion is pointless.
22018-05-07 20:29:56 UTCMateusz Konieczny I reverted your edit because you made several edit based on misconception that only tags described in OSM wiki are allowed.
32018-05-07 20:45:58 UTCmueschel This specific tag was only added due to a bug in the GoMap app that has been fixed meanwhile.
42018-05-07 20:49:45 UTCMateusz Konieczny Maybe I overreacted in this case - feel free to revert this edit if you think that it improves map.
12018-04-18 18:39:35 UTCmarczoutendijk Any specific reason why you moved this tagging to a note? Did you read the discussion on the Dutch forum?
https://forum.openstreetmap.org/viewtopic.php?id=60633
22018-04-19 08:19:02 UTCmueschel Hi,
it's a new tag that wasn't used before. I checked the wiki and wasn't able to find any description of it. I didn't find a discussion in the forums, but I also don't speak Dutch.

I'm perfectly fine with using the tag - you seem to have some discussion about it and if you add a description in ...
32018-05-07 20:11:30 UTCMateusz Konieczny Why you think that hiding "random tags" in notes improves anything? Nonsense useless tags should be deleted, mistagged info should be fixed.

Moving them to notes merely hides problem and accomplishes nothing - this kind of edit is as result harmful.
42018-05-07 20:18:55 UTCmueschel It's not hiding the information - in contrary, it makes it visible. JOSM shows it now as a special icon, and also iD can list it for the casual user you doesn't look in the list of all tags.
52018-05-07 20:28:03 UTCMateusz Konieczny What you mention may be achieved by adding "fixme=suspicious tags XYZ".

Moving weird tags to note makes nearly impossible to spot issue again.
12018-05-07 20:05:54 UTCMateusz Konieczny it just makes them harder to spot and really fix! What is the point of that edit?
22018-05-07 20:17:09 UTCmueschel Would you please stop reverting the work of others without discussion? A 'description' tag is exactly the right place to list the amenities a park has to offer.
32018-05-07 20:26:21 UTCMateusz Konieczny "A 'description' tag is exactly the right place to list the amenities a park has to offer."

So why you moved them to note tag?
12018-05-07 20:15:07 UTCmueschel This was not a 'mechanical edit'. I did it deliberately by hand. Undocumented tags are useless in OSM. And I'm very willing to communicate.
22018-05-07 20:24:59 UTCMateusz Konieczny "Undocumented tags are useless in OSM" - that is untrue. Frequently tags may be documented (I done it with many of them).
32018-05-07 20:25:21 UTCMateusz Konieczny "And I'm very willing to communicate." - and thanks for that!
12018-05-07 20:02:17 UTCMateusz Konieczny Yes, it gives. It confirms that some foreign currencies may be withdrawn here.
22018-05-07 20:11:09 UTCmueschel There is a reason that currency:others=yes doesn't exist in the wiki. The only value is 'no', indicating that all currencies available are mentioned in the tags and none are missing.
32018-05-07 20:23:45 UTCMateusz Konieczny "There is a reason that currency:others=yes doesn't exist in the wiki."

You seem to think that only tags defined in wiki may be used. It is untrue.

It is useful to fix broken tags (as long as one verifies whatever edit makes sense and is not hiding serious issues), it is useful to de...
12018-05-07 19:59:25 UTCMateusz Konieczny What was point of this edit?
22018-05-07 20:00:19 UTCMateusz Konieczny If you stuff everything into note tag - please, as minimum, ensure that produced note has no new typos.
32018-05-07 20:09:01 UTCmueschel The tag 'visible_in' is not in use elsewhere and not defined anywhere. A note on the other hand is shown in all editors to make any other mapper aware of the problem. I just moved the existing information to a place visible to others.
42018-05-07 20:21:30 UTCMateusz Konieczny "is not in use elsewhere and not defined anywhere" and? See https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Any_tags_you_like

note already existed, this tag only provided extra info

" note on the other hand is shown in all editors" - for start it is simply untrue.
12018-05-07 19:54:24 UTCMateusz Konieczny Why you made this edit? Can you use edit description that explain why you made an edit?
22018-05-07 20:06:46 UTCmueschel There is no need for a new tag 'service_times:mass' - that's by definition 'service_times'.
32018-05-07 20:18:40 UTCMateusz Konieczny see https://lists.openstreetmap.org/pipermail/tagging/2018-April/035869.html for explanation

please, do not remove tags just because you do not understand why somebody added them

Wahrscheinlich ist
maxweight = 5 oder
maxweight:hgv = 5 richtig.

32018-05-06 11:27:51 UTCmueschel Hallo,
woher stammen diese Daten? "knowledge" ist es wohl eher nicht. Bitte denke immer daran, dass alle externen Quellen unter einer Lizenz stehen müssen, die mit der ODbL von OSM kompatibel ist.

12018-05-03 18:19:03 UTCmueschel Hi,
you're using tags like "roof:shape:south" on these buildings. Unfortunately, this tag is not really useful, as it is not defined in the wiki. If you want to have such a detailed mapping of roof shapes, you have to work with building:parts. I'm sure you can find some examples in this l...
22018-05-03 19:20:47 UTCChieftl Hi
Thanks for note.
I was studying OSM Wiki before adding this tag, but I didn't found how to map roof which has different type on opposite sides (hipped/gabled in this case).
I am not sure that it is possible by splitting building to building:parts because of center connection of building:parts ...
32018-05-04 17:49:12 UTCmueschel I'm not a full expert on this, but it might be

roof:shape = side_hipped (521 times in OSM)

Thanks for noticing. I'm using a development version of Osmand and that seems indeed to be a brand new bug... I'll inquiry more on the Osmand side to make sure this is fixed.

12018-05-01 10:04:58 UTCmueschel Hi,
could you explain the tags "waymark" and "control_number"? These are not used in any other place. If these are reference numbers, the usual tag is "ref:XYZ".

Cheers, Jan
22018-05-01 18:45:11 UTCAstromath I'm not sure what waymark and control_numbers are. The sites I got the info from did not define them (re: websites I entered). Maybe ref could be used for them, but I don't know how many characters can be used for that field.
32018-05-02 09:09:19 UTCmueschel If you don't know what they mean, they should not be in OSM.

Btw, what is the source of this data? It's missing in the changeset. Is this data available under a license compatible with ODbL?
42018-05-02 19:08:59 UTCAstromath The data is from the 2 websites I added. Both are public websites.
52018-05-02 19:53:34 UTCmueschel These might be public, but the data can not be used for OSM - their terms of use contain "private, non-commercial" use and "attribution" needed.

All data you got from these sites must be removed.
62018-05-03 13:58:49 UTCAstromath Ok. Removed the parts that are "private" use and only left in the parts that are "obvious" when looking at it from the street. I also left in the sculptor because that should be found in any record, especially the library.

52018-04-30 12:09:19 UTCmueschel Perfect. I tried to guess what you meant, but didn't come up with 'simc'.

Jan
12018-04-29 14:58:10 UTCmueschel Hi,
could you explain the meaning of all these "Total..." tags on this area?
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.
Let us know in case you need help!

Jan
22018-04-29 15:03:45 UTCAshek Indeed, it indicates the total children/population of the mentioned area. Do you please suggest me how I can mention it. Thanks.
32018-04-29 15:16:38 UTCmueschel These are tags used in other places as well. At least the first two are also mentioned in the Wiki.

Total Population -> population
Total Household -> households
Total Children -> population:children

I don't know what the other tags mean, so I can't make a suggestion.
12018-04-29 15:00:45 UTCmueschel Hi,

Was this a mistake? Could you check & fix this?

Jan
12018-04-29 12:00:24 UTCmueschel Hi,
you added many colour tags on bus_stops. Is this the colour / names of the bus lines stopping there? If so, this should be put to a "route_ref=*" tag.
Jan
12018-04-28 17:05:25 UTCmueschel Hi,

22018-04-28 17:28:01 UTCJames69 Yes the White Rabbit is an upscale up-cycled resale shop
32018-04-28 17:47:00 UTCmueschel Ok, how about shop=second_hand? This is the best I can come up with at the moment and at least is a rough description.
I would also add a description=* tag stating exactly what you just wrote.
If they focus on some special kind of work, a craft=* tag could be fitting as well.

22018-04-28 10:49:38 UTCmarcotbs Ich ändere es im Verlauf der weiteren Verfeinerungen. Es scheint aber auch keinen Renderer zu geben welcher das Tag adäquat beachtet (F4M bspw. tut es nicht)
12018-04-25 18:27:31 UTCmueschel Hallo,
bitte benutze das name-Tag nicht für solche Beschreibungen.
Wenn du eine Sperrung des Weges angeben willst, geht das mit

access:conditional = no @ (Mar 14 - Aug 16)
12018-04-25 18:25:28 UTCmueschel Hallo,
willkommen bei OSM. Bitte nutze das "name" Tag nicht für Beschreibungen die kein Name sind. z.B. "roter, hellblauer und dunkelblauer Weg"

Wanderrouten und deren Schilder werden in OSM anders eingetragen, siehe https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/DE:Wandern#Erfasse...

das Naturschutzgebiet Drover Heide ist in mehrere, farblich markierte Wegstrecken eingeteilt. Wenn ich z.B. die komoot-App nutze, dann sagt mir mein Navi: bitte dem "roten, hellblauen und dunkelblauen Weg" folgen. Dann erkenne ich an der farblichen Markierung sofort, dass ich d...

12018-04-25 14:37:33 UTCmueschel Hi,
could you explain this? What is a "lake trail" if it's not a path to walk on?
22018-04-25 16:04:05 UTCkapsa You are right but the earlier description referred to this segment as a "footpath" which I believe is something next to a road while a lake trail has a nature element. There is a tree covered trail all around this lake.
32018-04-25 16:39:19 UTCmueschel It was "highway=footway" - this is not related to a sidewalk (on the side of a road).
See the description in the wiki:
https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:highway=footway

It's just a generic tag for a path which is mainly intended for pedestrians.

You can add further details us...
12018-04-25 14:39:36 UTCmueschel Hallo,
du verwendest hier zweimal das Tag

12018-04-25 09:57:31 UTCmueschel Hi,
what is the meaning of this tag?
https://www.openstreetmap.org/node/5575320051
Ubach = bar

It looks like some mistake.
Cheers, Jan
22018-04-26 21:19:01 UTCEliziR Fixed. Thx!

It doesn't have any descriptive tag, just a name and something that looks like a mistake.

Jan
12018-04-25 09:23:24 UTCmueschel Hi,
there are a few spelling mistakes of tags here - it's "height", not "heigth".
The same for building:height and roof:height.
It's "building", not "buildiing" or "builidng" or "biulding" etc.
On the first glance it's about 300 spellin...
22018-04-26 05:53:44 UTCBert Araali Hello Jan, also noticed it. I am using ID and trying out some new 3D and indoor tagging features. I am updating it the coming few days and will remove the typos. Thanks for the help.

32018-04-23 15:19:13 UTCNight-Lord danach habe ich mich gerichtet wenn das falsch ist sollte es im Wiki auch mal Aktualisiert werden.
42018-04-23 15:28:49 UTCmueschel Deine temporary-Tags sind völlig in Ordnung.
Aber ein highway=secondary wird nicht zum highway=path nur weil es eine Baustelle ist.

Das Beispiel im Wiki ist für einen Radweg, der ohnehin schon ein highway=path ist.
52018-04-23 15:46:05 UTCNight-Lord oki dann änder ich das, danke für den Hinweis :)
12018-04-23 10:55:37 UTCmueschel Hi,

12018-04-22 10:31:27 UTCmueschel Hi,
welcome to OSM.
Here you used two tags which are new and not used in any other place.

This might be a good description of the object, but is not usable in OSM - no software can understand
it. Only tags that are described in the OSM-Wiki can be used.

3 Wegstücke haben jetzt zwei access:conditional tags, unter anderem dieser: https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/447013725

Welcher davon stimmt?
access:conditional = no @ (Nov-May)

12018-04-22 10:11:59 UTCmueschel Hi,
you added 43 nodes with the tag "Arbre = yes".

everything else is not understood by the software and is not shown on maps.

I guess you meant to use "natural = tree", see the Wiki:

12018-04-21 10:14:39 UTCmueschel Hi,

Jan
12018-04-18 08:00:30 UTCmueschel Hi,
I found the tag "health_professional=no" on many objects - what does it mean? This key has not been used in any other place yet.

Jan
22018-04-18 12:44:34 UTCShamillah Hello Jan,
that means that the health facilities in that area do not have a health professional.

Shamillah
32018-04-18 13:05:44 UTCmueschel Could you search for an established tag for this information? Otherwise this information is lost for all users who don't know this tag.
health_person:type=* might be a good choice.

https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Proposed_features/Healthcare_2.0#health_person:type.3D.2A_.2F_office.3D.2A
42018-04-18 14:12:39 UTCShamillah Sure thing Jan. Will discuss with my team and make appropriate changes. Thank you for the insight :)

12018-04-18 08:02:15 UTCmueschel Hi,
all these objects have tags like
"Source:date = 20130720" - in general, keys should be lower case and the date should be in a common format like
"source:date = 2013-07-20" Would you mind changing that?

Jan
12018-04-18 07:59:04 UTCmueschel Hi,

12018-04-17 17:25:53 UTCmueschel Hi,
you and your colleagues add nodes like this:

Jan
12018-04-17 09:10:32 UTCmueschel Hallo,
du hast hier zwei Tags benutzt, die es so bisher nicht gibt, ref:color_bg und ref:color_tx. Ich würde empfehlen, auf "osmc:symbol" zurückzugreifen - das wird insbesondere bei Symbolen auf Wegweisern verwendet, und es gibt Anwendungen die das unterstützen.
12018-04-17 09:07:46 UTCmueschel Hi,
you added the key "arialway" on 58 objects - could you fix the spelling mistake, it should be "aerialway".

Grüße,

22018-04-17 13:24:32 UTCMax-- Oh, what a stupid typo, did not spot it while reapplying the key those 58 times in JOSM. Should have fixed all of them now, but will make sure I check later!

22018-04-16 12:02:13 UTCmueschel At all other lakes I know the usual "name" and "alt_name" tags are used. What is your reason to use other tags here? If it is just to avoid displaying the name on the map, this is "mapping for the renderer" and heavily discouraged.

Reason is that there is no stream/river at that point, name is not required (because lake/reservoir...
42018-04-16 12:19:39 UTCmueschel That's exactly what Drafts are for in the Wiki - describing what you intent to do so that other mappers can comment on it. I'm not sure that all users of this data agree with your point of view.
52018-04-16 12:27:27 UTCTomas Straupis Well we (Lithuanian mappers) are discussing it in pubs... I've added a lot of river/stream ways to connect water basins, this introduced duplicate names, so I'm looking for the ways to solve this. Alternative would be to remove waterway=river/stream tag altogether. Or removing name tag.
As per wiki...
62018-04-16 12:37:13 UTCmueschel I'm not a user of river and stream data, so I can't say something specific. Only thing I know is that OSM is an international project and all changes to tagging need to be discussed openly with everybody involved. A pub is not the right place, that's why we have the Wiki, whether you like it or not....
72018-04-16 13:05:41 UTCTomas Straupis I have explained which problems I'm solving. I need other specific/practical problems to be able to adjust my decisions. This is the reason why I'm doing a change and waiting for a loooong time for other possible problems to rise.

22018-04-12 13:54:21 UTCmueschel Hi,
I changed static_caravans to static_caravan because the plural wasn't in the database before you added it and the singular was already used 170 times.

you invented 3 new tags "DTP ", "DTP", "Dtp" here. Could you explain what these mean?

Please keep in mind that OSM tags are case sensitive and whitespace matters.

Jan
12018-04-04 20:11:32 UTCVlIvYur Hello
Your Shift key stuck
22018-04-05 07:36:34 UTCgrhum59 Sorry, that comes from a database made by my communication department.
32018-04-07 15:58:39 UTCmueschel That means it is an import of data? The source is not "knowledge"?
Please read https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Import/Guidelines

Also, the tagging has to be revised, tags like
object_id, type = AUTRE, horaires:FR, longitude, latitude should not appear in OSM and have to be remove...
42018-04-09 10:06:48 UTCgrhum59 Well ! Sorry for the bad tagging.
It was my first time, I tried to do my best, but my best was not good.
I correct the bad tags after deblocking my caps lock key.
I also put phone tag with international format

I hope this is better now
12018-04-06 09:55:21 UTCmueschel Hi,
could you check your preset / default values / scripts? There is a typo: "glacier:e1e_bottom" instead of "glacier:ele_bottom" (a "one" instead of the letter L)

Cheers, Jan
22018-04-06 10:38:43 UTCHernan Thank you very much for the warning. It is already corrected

12018-04-02 13:15:28 UTCmueschel Hi,
you introduced some new tags on several national parks. Could you explain their meaning?
AUTHORITY = WA_DPAW
PA_ID = WA_31362
RES_NUMBER = WA31362

Thanks, Jan
22018-04-02 14:08:34 UTCKeith Hope this helps,

32018-04-02 14:37:07 UTCmueschel Such external reference numbers are usually not part of the data in OSM. Please write a description in the Wiki so that every mapper can understand what they are.

42018-04-02 15:52:15 UTCKeith It has to referenced as source by the uploader to identify that the data set is legally been obtained under the (CC BY 3.0 AU) licence.

52018-04-03 06:42:51 UTCaharvey I agree with @mueschel that we should be using the `ref` key https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:ref for external references. So ref:capad or something like that.

The description of the AUTHORITY field sounds like it should go into the OSM operator tag https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:...
62018-04-03 10:07:43 UTCKeith Actually I will remove all reference to any further fields, saves time.
72018-04-06 09:51:39 UTCmueschel What are we going to do with the existing
res_num, pa_id, Res_num, RES_NUMBER, PA_ID tags? Delete?
82018-04-06 10:36:04 UTCKeith As far as I know i have deleted the tags. I will check and act accordingly.

12018-04-05 16:03:15 UTCmueschel Hi,
you used the tag "inclusive = no" on several barriers, what is the meaning of this tag?
Jan
22018-04-05 16:17:24 UTCCamcycleMatt I'm investigating some ideas for annotating problematic barriers installed on cycle routes that exclude people riding adapted cycles, tricycles or recumbent cycles. Hopefully this can eventually become a searchable database based on OSM.
32018-04-05 17:32:41 UTCmueschel "inclusive" is not actually a "speaking tag" - it could be anything. What is the exact width when you start using this tag? what about bicycles with trailers?
I would recommend to stay with the established tagging schemes: You can always use a "maxwidth" tag - this car...
42018-04-05 17:53:47 UTCCamcycleMatt Thank you for the suggestion.

Sorry that I also forgot to mention cycles with trailers. Inclusive is meant to capture the full range of pedal cycle-type vehicles. I realise that is a fairly vague category, however it is an issue here. For practical purposes I usually refer people to Highways Engl...
52018-04-05 20:08:03 UTCmueschel Barriers like this exist almost everywhere. As you describe there are many different kinds of obstacles that hinder users of one or more specific kinds of vehicles. I fully agree that this is important information to include in OSM, but I'm sure that you need a much more specific tagging with many m...

32017-09-04 23:56:04 UTCberjk Anm: da war ja einer mal richtig schnell!
42018-03-24 23:55:08 UTCberjk Ist es technisch möglich, dass nur ich diese Hilfspunkte nur für mich ersichtlich sind? Ich kann mir vorstellen, dass andere, d.h. die die Grenze nicht bearbeiten wollen, nichts mit diesen Hilfspunkten anfangen können und ebenfalls irritiert sind.
52018-04-03 11:47:35 UTCmueschel In iD geht das so weit ich weiß nicht. Mit JOSM ist es kein Problem, du kannst beliebig Daten in/aus lokalen Dateien speichern und laden, so dass du sie siehst, sie aber nicht auf dem Server landen.

12018-04-01 12:57:35 UTCmueschel Hallo,

service:bicycle:coffee \tyes

22018-04-01 17:14:38 UTCnodge Hi Jan! Der Laden ist eigentlich beides. Cafe mit Kuchen und Fahrradladen mit Werkstatt... haste ne bessere Idee?

Grüße! Martin
32018-04-01 17:18:36 UTCmueschel Hi,
dann war shop = coffee (verkauft Kaffeebohnen) nicht richtig, es hätte amenity = cafe (schenkt Kaffee aus) sein müssen.

Wir haben keine Möglichkeit, zwei so verschiedene Dinge an einem Knoten zu taggen. Deswegen würde ich hier vorschlagen, zwei getrennte Punkte anzulegen ...
42018-04-01 17:20:09 UTCnodge Gute Idee. Ich bau das so um! Danke!!
12018-04-01 13:58:25 UTCmueschel Hallo,
du schreibst "Als Quelle für den Umriss der Passage und alle indoor-Räume usw. diente der Plan, der an einigen Eingänge steht"

22018-04-02 12:37:57 UTCgoodidea Sorry, war eine falscher Comment bei dem Änderungssatz. Ich habe den Plan doch nicht benutzen müssen. Es ging auch so.

12018-04-01 12:51:57 UTCmueschel Hi,
you used the tag "w2g = yes" on several objects, could you explain what it means?

Thanks, Jan
22018-04-03 06:52:58 UTCnodnerb Sorry it was an error of judgement. I have adopted checked=w2g to remind me of my on site survey versus a satellite image
12018-04-01 12:49:31 UTCmueschel Hi,
this way got several access tags, which aren't right. Could you explain what the actual access rules are? I guess it can easily be tagged with access:conditional=*

Thanks, Jan
12018-04-01 12:37:52 UTCmueschel Hi,
it looks like something went wrong here, there are several peaks with strange tags like

hj_name=露積峰
index_no=3485
lon=126-58-38.35
lot=37-39-12.28

Jan
12018-03-31 10:24:02 UTCmueschel Hi,

thanks for the tip. Will make sure to correct it. I am trying to understand how the directions system works, this was my first attempt.

Have to say that the syntax is a bit confusing on this point though, not completely clear why a certain order should be used. I guess I should study ...
32018-04-01 10:02:11 UTCmueschel I also missed a clear description, so I made my own. In general the order of almost everything is

52018-04-01 11:21:47 UTCmueschel For JOSM I only know about the "LaneAttributes" preset which helps a bit to quickly enter the most important attributes.
12018-04-01 10:39:01 UTCmueschel Hi,

22018-04-08 15:08:24 UTCbgirardot @mueschel Thank you very much for the heads up. We are follow up on this now. Very much appreciated.
32018-04-09 12:14:33 UTCbgirardot @mueschel This appears to have been a mistake in uploading data to OSM. We asked the DWG to revert this. So a number of these tags are not intended to be part of OSM data.

'vvo_id' sollte wohl besser 'ref:vvo' heißen, das würde der gängigen Praxis entsprechen.
Der Tag "qr_code" ist wohl auch überflüssig, es gibt ja schon "website" und der angegebene Link führt auch nicht zu einem qr code.

zu qr_code hatten wir schon einmal diskutiert. Da war es als besser befunden statt qr_code=yes (oder dem Bild) gleich den Link anzugeben.

32018-03-12 14:37:24 UTCmueschel Looking more closely, it's just a glitch of the rendering server - when I checked both the new and the old (coarse) river way were shown simultaneously. The database is clean though.
12018-03-12 09:27:09 UTCmueschel Hi Arman,
could you explain the meaning of the key "field paper = H1"? This looks like it shouldn't be there.
And: do these buildings really have a number as name? This would imply that local people will know which building you're talking about like in "I'm going to house 05".\...
22018-03-13 15:29:10 UTCArman Sakif Hi Mueschel,
The field paper number and the house number are temporary for our project work. I will update the full database of every house. I put the temporary house number because it will help me to find the house later. I will update this in few days. thanks for your comment.
12018-03-11 11:57:24 UTCmueschel Hi,
the dog tags on this restaurant are new, and not used before. What do you think about the following tagging, which follows the established 'access' and 'conditional access' keys:

dog = yes
dog:conditional = no @ (12:00-15:00);no @ (weight > 10)

Cheers, Jan
12018-03-11 11:53:15 UTCmueschel Hi,
you added several bus stops with the tag "downtown = yes". This is new and used in any other place. Could you describe its meaning?
Thanks, Jan
22018-03-11 18:39:42 UTCNixillUmbreon Thanks for the catch! To be honest, those keys should never have been on those nodes in the first place. I've taken the erroneous tags off the relation members in my newest changeset (#57090144).

maxspeed:forward_1 =100

Gruß, Jan
12018-03-11 11:29:05 UTCmueschel Hi,
could you check your tagging presets?
The key "place:neighbourhood" should be "addr:neighbourhood" and "place:suburb" should be "addr:suburb".
Would you mind changing this?

Btw, it looks a lot like an import, what is the source of your data?

12018-03-10 15:44:05 UTCmueschel Hi,
welcome to OSM!
On this POI you added the tags
roof:material =concrete
roof:material_1 =tiles
roof:material_2 =steel
Using the same tag several times with an '_1' and '_2' should be avoided. You can add all the options to one tag:
roof:material = concrete;tiles;steel

Cheers, Jan
12018-03-10 13:42:52 UTCmueschel Hi,
you added some tags like "maxspeed:forward:bus" here - the normal order is "maxspeed:bus:forward" or more general:

Jan
12018-03-09 12:04:36 UTCHjart The burnt key probably should be documented on the wiki if before using it again

I just changed it because 'burnt' is already used 300 times, and the prefix 'burnt:' was not in use at all.

you added some new keys here that are not used in other places, i.e.

I think it should be reverted immediately.

could you check the tagging of these beautiful 3D-buildings?

There are 1332 objects with the tag "building_colour". This should be "building:colour"

Additionally, all the nodes are tagged e.g. as building, but these tags seem to belong to the ways only.
22018-02-17 11:50:09 UTCGeorgiysys I indicated the color to make out the appearance, is there any problem with using this tag?
32018-02-17 11:54:19 UTCGeorgiysys Or do you mean that there were points, if the points I deleted them, remained from the rough work, I did not see them in josm
42018-02-17 11:58:27 UTCmueschel Tagging the colour is fine. But spelling of the tag is wrong. Note the difference: "building_colour" and "building:colour" - '_' versus ':'.

The nodes I refer to are part of ways - that's correct. But they should not have tags themselves. For example this one:

this import seems to have gone wrong. 3600 buildings have many foreign tags which shouldn't appear in the OSM database like these:
Corp=Bardolph
LandUse_Ty=Residential
OBJECTID=13974
Shape_Area=2750.87390396
Shape_Leng=283.434877206
Tall=No
Township=Macomb Township

Could you fix this?...
22018-02-09 16:19:27 UTCwiuhighwayman Hi Jan,
I figured out the issue -- I imported a shapefile in JOSM and didn't clean out the fields, which came in as these extraneous tags. I have fixed this issue (deleted and recreated) and will update the other uploads that have the same problem. Thanks for catching the issue.

32018-02-26 02:51:14 UTCchachafish Greetings. I'm no expert on imports and please correct me if I'm wrong, but aren't you required to create a dedicated user account for an import? https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Import/Guidelines
42018-02-26 03:33:47 UTCwiuhighwayman_import Yes, thank you chachafish. Meant to do that and then spaced it until your comment arrived. Using the dedicated account now.

12018-02-06 12:08:10 UTCmueschel Hi,
could you explain the meaning of the tag "directionality" on this way? https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/558267269
It isn't used in any other place yet.

Cheers, Jan
22018-02-07 16:16:11 UTCerkinalp It means the buses can enter backwards only. It is used as terminus of ESHOT route 885.
32018-02-07 18:56:55 UTCmueschel Ah ok,
that would be "oneway=-1".

But I can't find such an additional lane in any satellite image - I can see just the regular intersection that is mapped with the straight ways.
12018-02-06 12:02:48 UTCmueschel Hallo,
das Tag "motor_vehicle:conditional:bus" gibt es so bisher nicht. Kannst du beschreiben, wer da wie fahren darf? Die Zufahrt zu den Häusern dort ist doch sicherlich erlaubt?
22018-02-06 13:18:56 UTCtux67 Hi mueschel,

Wahrscheinlich hätte ich eine Aspirin zur Lektüre der conditional restictions im Wiki nehmen sollen ;-) Hab's jetzt nochmal korregiert. Die Lage vor Ort kannst du dir mit dem Link auch selbst ansehen.
Danke für den Hinweis (schau mal bitte ob's jetzt passt).

32018-02-06 14:04:58 UTCmueschel Hallo Stephan,
das Tagging passt zum Schild :-)
Um es wirklich korrekt hinzubekommen müsste noch jemand am anderen Ende schauen, ob die Beschilderung dort die gleiche ist.

Jan
12018-02-06 12:16:50 UTCmueschel Hi,
You added the tag "soure_ref \thttps://goo.gl/maps/8eryM2y1Apk" here. Please note that it's not allowed to copy any information from Google - there license is not compatible with ODbL!

Jan

22018-02-07 21:05:14 UTCleveskockaa Hi,

12018-02-06 10:42:20 UTCmueschel Hi,

32018-02-06 00:24:18 UTCmueschel @PlaneMad: Did you actually check this changeset? Most of the objects have tags like road=road, building=Gargares, Fench=fench.
That's not what I would call 'great'.

My previous review of your changeset was wrong, so I'm changing its

52018-02-06 02:05:50 UTCPlaneMad You are right, I checked some of the smaller buildings and from the shapes it looked good, but the tags are messed up.
12018-02-05 11:41:22 UTCmueschel Hi,
the tag "payment:0535601836 = yes" on this pharmacy looks strange. Is the number a telephone number?

Jan
12018-02-05 09:45:37 UTCmueschel Hi,
I found the tag "route-ref=X04 X08 X09 X10" on 30 nodes. Could you fix two issues?
- It's route_ref, not route-ref
- the list of routes should be separated by ;
For example:
route_ref=X04; X08; X09; X10

Cheers, Jan
12018-02-05 09:43:58 UTCmueschel Hi,

12018-01-30 11:52:33 UTCmueschel Hi,
just a hint: you used the tag "bus = 10" to mark bus numbers. The usual tag for this is "route_ref".
And a question: what is the meaning of "shuttle_bus"? This key is new and hasn't been used in any other place.

Cheers, Jan
22018-01-30 12:30:39 UTCluiswoo В "route_ref" можно истолковывать множественные значения, как "route_ref=12b;15;95"?

shuttle_bus=share_taxi — забыл исправить ошибку.
Не знаю, нужно ли остановке публичного т...
32018-01-30 12:55:39 UTCmueschel Yes, route_ref can have multiple values.

I'm sorry, but I can't give a response to the rest - I don't speak Russian and google translate is not good enough for me to understand.
42018-01-30 12:58:21 UTCluiswoo У меня аналогичная проблема.
52018-01-30 14:02:29 UTCfreeExec Зачем вообще эти bus=* shuttle_bus=* всё логично получается из отношений маршрута.
62018-01-30 14:08:23 UTCmueschel freeExec, a route is always the best solution. But as long as the route is not mapped, route_ref is a perfect source of information. It is used 170,000 times worldwide.
72018-01-30 14:22:19 UTCZverik luiswoo, ты не мог бы bus=*, share_taxi=*, shuttle_bus=* заменить на route_ref:bus=*, route_ref:share_taxi=* и т.п.? По вики, именно этот ключ используется для перечисления номеров маршрутов через остано...

52018-01-29 07:20:07 UTChighflyer74 Hello!

Thank you for your feedback. As long as they do exist, everything is fine. Also you should add a changeset description and source before uploading. JOSM is offering a window with two text fields you can use to do that. That helps other mappers to understand your intentions. If you have any...
62018-01-29 09:27:15 UTCmueschel Hi ah511,
I removed those tags a few days ago. 10 m accuracy is really nothing to worry about - there is a huge amount of data that is a lot worse.
12018-01-28 11:44:40 UTCff5722 It seems that the nodes you deleted were the location of a road although not tagged correctly, this is still valid map data.

22018-01-28 12:08:00 UTCmueschel Hi,
that's also what I wrote to ntlong1974 - the information might be useful, but needs proper tagging. Most of the nodes were placed along existing roads, only few pieces contain new roads.

32018-01-28 12:09:12 UTCff5722 Ok thank you, then i understand why you deleted all of them.
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.

12018-01-26 14:55:46 UTCmueschel Hi,
could you check the spelling of "diameter" - currently it's "diamater". And could you please check the units? 220 meter (which is the default unit) is a bit too big.

Jan
22018-01-27 14:57:50 UTCihbutler Hi Jan,

Thanks for your comment, I appreciate you taking the time to do it.

32018-01-27 15:20:11 UTCmueschel Hi Ian,
no, I've never used Go Map!!

About the units, you're right. I missed that the wiki states mm as default - and the "global default" is usually meter.

Btw. I also missed "diameter_crown" in the wiki:

12018-01-21 11:05:29 UTCmueschel Hi,
here's a hint for you: To tag the bus lines that stop at a given bus stop, you can use the tag "route_ref" instead of "description".

Cheers, Jan
22018-01-21 11:27:45 UTCRemígio Chilaule Thanks Jan! Very useful!

32018-01-27 09:40:36 UTCRemígio Chilaule Hi Jan, "route_ref" does not appear to be a predefined tag... Is it used elsewhere in OSM or was your suggestion specific for our case? Or is there something I'm not seeing?
Thanks,
42018-01-27 09:58:23 UTCmueschel There is a definition in the Wiki: https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:route_ref
It is used 170,000 times.
You have to enter it manually, I didn't find it in a JOSM preset.
12018-01-26 14:57:04 UTCmueschel Hi,
could you check the spelling of the tags? 'metrial' should be 'material'.

12018-01-26 12:03:30 UTCmueschel Hi,
it looks like this import of data (here and in other changesets) went wrong. All the nodes have either a strange name tag or many foreign tags which should not appear in the OSM database.
Please do not use OSM to store your private data like positions of images you have taken.

Cheers, Jan
22018-01-24 11:44:47 UTCSpectrokid Address is inside the building, on separate tag.
Building itself is tagged as farm with a name set. I often do this when a farm is inside a residential area, otherwise I name the farmyard, not the building. What do you think is the problem?
32018-01-24 11:58:12 UTCmueschel Hi,
the way has the tag "Vesterbjerggård = 1"
This doesn't look correct - such a tag is usually caused by a mistake when doing copy-and-paste.

12018-01-24 11:50:41 UTCmueschel Hi,
could you explain the meaning of all these note* tags on this object? "note" is typically a place to leave a note to other mappers. If these are individual offices, each of them should have its own POI.

12018-01-17 15:50:06 UTCmueschel Hi,
does this small residential street really have 5 different arabic names?
https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/39662753
22018-01-17 16:20:40 UTCألبرشت شونكه Actually these are 5 separated streets, but I did not have the time to separate them as they were created as one large street.
32018-01-17 16:24:27 UTCألبرشت شونكه I added a note and fixme-tag. If someone has time, it would be nice if this could be fixed.
42018-01-17 17:15:13 UTCmueschel Splitting a way in iD is simple: You select the node where you want to split the road, then press "X".

92018-04-21 05:48:24 UTCYfrPcI4RzVGr It seems like this name is similar to "downtown" or "City Center" in the sense that it represents a function and importance.

I think such a name is redundant, just like name=viewpoint for a ...
12018-01-17 12:12:22 UTCmueschel Hi,
all these roads already exist in OSM - now there are two overlapping roads and this causes errors for routing engines.

I found the tag

12018-01-08 09:07:21 UTCmueschel Hi,

12018-01-07 12:00:02 UTCmueschel Hi,

Could you change that?
22018-01-07 15:54:26 UTCzzcolin I don't think it to be reasonable. I did notice the discussions regarding this, and I see that you took "destination:<something>:to" as an example of "ambiguities", but ":to" is just a proposed subtag; however, it is a widely followed convention to directly using ...

12018-01-02 13:04:16 UTCmueschel Hi,
you used the key "gone:railway" for this railway. 'gone' is none of the usual lifecycle prefixes - If the rails have been removed, it should be "railway = razed", see https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Demolished_Railway

Jan
22018-01-02 22:20:21 UTCWarin61 I agree 'gone: is not 'usual' - still thinking about it. I used this as a temporary hold for transfer of data to Open Historical Map (I hope).

'railway=razed' may only apply to track, not stations and other railway things. I think it is a poor tag! I would much rather have something like 'gone:'...
32018-01-02 22:24:48 UTCmueschel "razed:" is also quite common: https://taginfo.openstreetmap.org/keys/razed%3Arailway#values

For these long-gone objects it might indeed be better to remove them completly, but others might disagree.
42018-01-02 22:47:16 UTCWarin61 "others might disagree" ... Yes .. 'they' will disagree! However if a good alternative is offered (such as OHM) then 'we' might get agreement, at least the vast majority? Fingers crossed.

razed: is not on the wiki .. probably because the vast majority would 'disagree' with it :)
52018-01-03 23:50:41 UTCWarin61 I have now copied this railway line to OHM .. and it is there nicely.

Sections of this line I have tagged 'ruined:' other sections 'nonexistent:' and the southern platform/station abandoned:

please let me add that there is no need to put a "source" tag on every object - once in the changeset is sufficient.
I also don't see the purpose of the tag "scala". OSM doesn't have a scale, it's just a database.

Jan
52018-01-02 19:56:34 UTCkaitu Thanks for pointing out the tag "scala". It wasn't intended for osm, I uploaded it by mistake. I have now removed it and changed my workflow to prevent this mistake from happening again.

I add the tag source to every object, because I concurrently upload objects from different sources. ...
12017-12-26 12:13:13 UTCmueschel Hi,
on this way you used a tag I don't understand: http://www.openstreetmap.org/way/408004877
"destination:lanes:left = Centro"
I think there might be a better way to tag this information - could you explain the destinations? Do you have an image of the sign?

Cheers, Jan
22018-01-02 14:11:20 UTCmarcioaguiar Hi!

It was supposed to mean that the left lane is for those who wants to go to "Centro", but I guess this is already descripted on destionation:lanes. I think it can be removed.

The sign image: https://imgur.com/a/vsoIx
32018-01-02 19:00:24 UTCmueschel Thanks!
It's a bit hard to see, but from Bing images I guess there are three lanes? So, this is the full tagging, describing the whole sign:
lanes = 3
turn:lanes = left|through|through;right
destination:lanes = Retorno|Centro|Avenida Fernandes Lima;Aeroporto;Centro;
destination:symbol:lanes = |...
12018-01-02 13:21:58 UTCNixillUmbreon ... Just looked in the wiki because I thought you were wrong here.

You were right. There is no `start` or `end` key.

While I question those tags' applicability to this route in particular (`from` and `to` are the same stop), I'm going to update the rest of them to use the proper tags.
22018-01-02 18:20:14 UTCmueschel There is also the key 'via' to name intermediate stops.
32018-01-02 18:31:06 UTCNixillUmbreon Yeah, I've used that on various routes when it removes ambiguity from other routes of the same number that don't go the same way, for example 450 SB: Pontiac => State Fair vs 450 SB: Pontiac => State Fair via Royal Oak.
12018-01-01 16:48:16 UTCmueschel Hi,

thanks for your hint - this was indeed a mistake when I thought I'd paste a complex attribute set to driveways while in fact I had this "Ekonomiska kartan" from a "source" field edit in my clipboard and didn't check this before uploading - rather stupid, I'm sorry, s...
12018-01-01 16:47:12 UTCmueschel Hi,
is it necessary to keep these areas with a tag "finished = construction"? If there is no construction site any more, I think they can be removed. Your tag is completely new and undocumented.

Jan
22018-01-01 20:14:58 UTCraiment57 Fair comment Jan. I have now removed them.

12018-01-01 12:33:56 UTCmueschel Hi,
I found a strange tag on two ways here:
parking:condition:right:maxspeed= 30 mph
I hope parked cars don't move at all :-)
Could you check that?

E.g. https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/250098973

Cheers, Jan
22018-01-01 15:37:29 UTCPink Duck Puzzling that, and rightly pointed out, so thanks. I've removed those curious tags from the two adjacent ways, given the existing speed limit is already 30 mph there (though due to change to 20 mph in April).
12018-01-01 11:36:25 UTCmueschel Hi,
I saw that you put the tag "name_water" on many water holes and pumps. This tag is not used in any other place yet and not interpreted by any software I'm aware of.
Shouldn't it be just "name"?

Jan
22018-01-01 11:45:56 UTCmueschel And, you added the tag "amenity:drinking_water=drinking water". This should be "amenity=drinking water".

Let me know if you need help fixing these issues.

the tag "for:addr:housenumber' is new. There is somebody in Russia who uses "post:housenumber": https://www.openstreetmap.org/node/4436294626
You might want to use this tag as well?

Cheers, Jan
22017-12-31 13:22:40 UTCM!dgard Ha, good idea. I was on my phone so couldn't do a whole lot of research. amenity=letter_box and post:*=* are documented, but only in Russian. I think it'd be great to port this page to other languages! I don't understand Russian though. Do you?

I'll change the tagging of these letter boxes now.

Jan

Now there is no any highway.
New highways is open now.
32017-12-31 12:16:11 UTCmueschel Thanks, I'll change it to "highway=razed", that's the typical tag for a removed highway.

12017-12-30 14:58:59 UTCPeilscheibe Hallo mueschel,

in Gegenrichtung freigegebenen Radverkehr taggt man ja üblicherweise mit oneway:bicycle=*

Grüße, P.
22017-12-30 15:07:43 UTCmueschel Hi,
Hauptgrund für die Änderung war, dass sidewalk:left:oneway:bicycle neu war und sidewalk:left:bicycle:oneway schon benutzt wurde. (insgesamt 30x left und right zusammen)
Generell sollte ein sidewalk:left:oneway (270x) allerdings reichen, weil außer Fahrräder keine Fahrzeug...

Übrigens, wenn man A nach B ändert und dann damit ar...
42017-12-30 15:56:26 UTCmueschel Wenn ein Tag neu eingeführt wird, stimme ich dir zu. Hier ist es allerdings anders: In der Datenbank gibt es z.B.
400x footway:[...]:bicycle:oneway
30x sidewalk:[...]:right:bicycle:oneway

62017-12-30 16:16:04 UTCmueschel Diese Frage solltest du nicht mir sondern den Mappern stellen, die diese Tags seit mindestens 5 Jahren benutzen. Aber wie bereits gesagt, die Reihenfolge "key:transportation_mode:subkey" ist nichts besonderes, sondern so üblich.
72017-12-30 17:21:45 UTCPeilscheibe Ich habe sie aber Dir gestellt, weil Du hier diese Änderung vorgenommen hast und mich die Begründung interessiert. Aber ich nehme zur Kenntnis, dass Du meine oben gestellte Frage nicht beantworten willst. Schade.

das müsste dann ungefähr so aussehen:

motor_vehicle:conditional = yes @ (Mo-Fr 07:00-11:30 AND delivery)

Gruß, Jan

32017-12-28 19:50:39 UTCmueschel Hi,
nicht ganz richtig. Der Key ist dabei
"taxi:conditional" und der Wert ist "yes @ destination". D.h. das :conditional steht an der falschen Stelle und das '=' muss weg.

Außerdem ein beliebter Fehler in iD: Pass auf, dass du ein Tag nicht zweimal einträgst.
12017-12-28 12:05:05 UTCmueschel Hi,
you used different spelling of the keys
ref:LOR and ref:seq, e.g. ref:lor and ref:Seq.
Could you change them to one common spelling?

Cheers, Jan
22017-12-28 18:10:47 UTCLegolash2oLiam Apologies, I try to stick to lor and seq but because of that one time I had caps on or held shift for a tad too long, it sometimes comes up. But yes, I'll fix it :)
32017-12-28 18:57:29 UTCLegolash2oLiam Hopefully you should see it as fixed in the area you indicated. :)

32017-12-29 01:19:41 UTCCarnildo If I'm understanding the meaning of the "County Road" tag correctly, I think the best thing to do would be to use the "ref" tag with a value of "CR ###", similar to how state highways get "ref" tags such as "WA 21".

22017-12-23 10:51:14 UTCAaron Opdyke The barangays within the Municipality of Carigara use a system of numbering households. They don't represent an "official" address, thus they aren't included in the "addr:housenumber" tag as some households also have a formal address street number (which can be different than the...
32017-12-23 10:57:27 UTCmueschel This sounds like a "ref" tag can be used for this - it's an local reference number of the buildings. It should be made more specific by adding a subkey like "ref:XYZ". Maybe "ref:Carigara:HH"?
42017-12-23 11:04:30 UTCAaron Opdyke That would work. I'll change the tags. It will work well to use the barangay name instead of the municipality name (Carigara) as the numbering is actually at the barangay, not municipal level (e.g. "ref:Tagak:HH"). Thanks for the catch and recommendation!
52017-12-23 11:08:27 UTCmueschel Thinking about it, I would even remove the city name from the tag and use "ref:HH". This means, you have a common tag for all such household numbers and the barangay they belong to can be found in the addr:place tag.
62017-12-23 11:19:54 UTCAaron Opdyke Ya part of the issue I'm having is that some households are technically part of a different barangay than the boundaries they fall within. We've field verified the boundaries with communities so it's not an issue of moving the boundaries and more trying to figure out the appropriate tagging for the ...
72017-12-23 11:23:51 UTCmueschel I guess it should be separated from the addr: in this case. How about
ref:HH = barangay 123
I.e. adding the barangay name to the value of the ref tag?
12017-12-21 11:33:07 UTCmueschel Hi,
it looks like something went wrong with this import - there are many tags that don't follow our common tagging scheme, like the ones listed below. Also, the source "Bing" you give for this data can't be right. What is the source and how is it licensed?

32017-12-23 10:53:33 UTCmueschel The more appropriate tag would be "landcover = trees", but the geometry looks rather precise.
The amount of overlapping buildings has to be fixed, though.
12017-12-23 10:43:10 UTCmueschel Hi,
could you explain the meaning of these ways? The tags you added are new and undocumented. The islands are already mapped with a much more details.
Last, what is the source of this data?
Jan
12017-12-22 19:22:08 UTCmueschel Hallo,
wir haben inzwischen 105x "railway:trak_ref", nachdem ich schon einige korrigiert hatte. Korrekterweise muss es "railway:track_ref" heißen.
Gruß, Jan
22017-12-27 07:35:19 UTCHalbtax Danke für den Hinweis. Das ist wohl aus einer Kombination von meiner Unaufmerksamkeit und JOSMs autocomplete entstanden. Ich werde das schweizweit suchen und korrigieren.
12017-12-22 13:46:32 UTCmueschel Hi,
I guess something went wrong here with the import of 35 airports. They use several strange tags, like 'ICAOKODE', 'ICAO_KODE' which should be 'icao', 'IATAKODE', 'IATA_KODE' which should be 'iata' and several more:
LUFTHAVNEIER
LUFTHAVNTYPE
ROTASJON
TRAFIKKTYPE

Would you mind changing th...
22017-12-22 15:00:28 UTCReitstoen Hi!
Thanks for notifying me. I wasn't aware the import files had these nodes, since the import should only be about landcover.
I'll remove these nodes, or remove these tags if correct tags has since been added to the nodes.

12017-12-22 11:51:55 UTCmueschel Hi,
welcome to OSM. Please have a look at the correct spelling of tags. In these changes I found for example:

building:hight\t-> h...
12017-12-21 11:43:52 UTCmueschel Hi,
you've added the tag "world2xp_exclude" on these objects - please don't add such tags which (seem to) control the behavior of individual renderers. Such information should always be kept in a separate place, but not in the main OSM database.

Jan
12017-12-21 11:31:34 UTCmueschel Hi,
it looks like something went wrong here, there is a lot of data on these buildings that doesn't follow our usual tagging schemes, like these tags:

12017-12-20 12:26:52 UTCmueschel Hi,
you used the new tag "busway:middle = lane" here - could you describe the situation on this road? Which lanes are going in which direction and who can use them?
E.g. here: http://www.openstreetmap.org/way/24771860

Cheers, Jan
12017-12-20 12:16:46 UTCmueschel Hi,
could you explain the meaning of these new tags:

DESCR=Vigneti
SIGLA=Cv
SIGLA_1=Cv
Thanks, Jan
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: http://www.openstreetmap.org/node/2428498001

- add:postcode should be addr:postcode
- there is no "award" tag, the proposal has been rejected
- 'stars' should only c...
22017-12-20 11:57:47 UTCmueschel Is there any chance that this will get cleaned up? If not, I opt for reverting this import.
32017-12-20 13:43:37 UTCJLZIMMERMANN Hello,
I work also on this changeset, we need a little time. We are working on an experimentation to improve tourism objects in this area of France. this is why you saw some odd tags. Thanks for your suggestions.
Regards
Jean-Louis
42017-12-23 10:36:51 UTCHarald Hartmann Sorry, but the live and production database of OSM isn't the right place for "experimentation", right? Please have a look at
https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Using_the_dev_server
12017-12-20 11:56:18 UTCmueschel Hi,
you added about 140 buildings with the tag "buiding:levels" - this should be "building:levels". Could you have a look and fix this spelling mistake?
Cheers, Jan
12017-11-18 11:26:30 UTCmueschel Hi,
all these ways do have the tags
Tracks=yes
tracks=yes
If these are streets used by farmers, the correct tag is "highway=track" would you mind changing that?

Cheers, Jan

12017-12-16 11:20:38 UTCmueschel Hi,

12017-12-16 11:19:25 UTCmueschel Hi,
you used the tag "add:village" on many roads, unfortunately there are two issues:

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...
12017-12-15 12:23:03 UTCmueschel Hallo,

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,

Jan
12017-12-13 11:31:37 UTCmueschel Hi,

Thanks, Jan
22017-12-12 11:47:00 UTCmueschel and:

Some do have "addr:house = 0", which doesn't seem to be a valid housenumber.

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.

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.

12017-12-09 11:00:42 UTCmueschel Hi,

"fr: siret" should be "ref:FR:SIRET"

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?

12017-12-04 11:57:54 UTCandrewsh Hi,

Thanks for your edits.

According to https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:building%3Dbungalow, 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 19:07:50 UTCmueschel Ist das hier wirklich ein Park oder eine Fläche mit Bäumen? Siehe https://www.openstreetmap.org/note/1228213

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.

Jan
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.

Jan
22017-12-01 13:45:18 UTCDaveF Hi

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.
