you added some ways with only strange tags like this one:
Could you have a look and fix this?

Cheers, Jan
12017-08-17 10:40:13 UTCmueschel Hi,
it looks like this and another changeset added 51 objects with strange tags like these:

12017-08-16 10:56:04 UTCmueschel Hi,
you added the key 'estd:' to various objects. This key is not yet used in any other place. I guess you should use "start_date" instead, which is used everywhere else.

Also, please use the Gregorian Calendar for dates - otherwise data can not be easily understood by any OSM tool.

12017-08-16 10:33:51 UTCmueschel Hi,
you added a new key here, and used several different spellings:


OSM Tags are case sensitive, could you change them to a common spelling? Additionally, we usually don't put a language code in front of a tag. It should be...
22017-08-16 12:23:31 UTCbibi6 Hi,
Thanks for pointing me this out. I actually wanted to use the FR:grande_circulation tag, but I probably did a wrong manip for the others (unless iD doesn't care about case :/ )
Anyway, taking your second remark into account, I'm going to use grande_circulation instead. (Changeset 51169807 is ...
12017-08-06 13:09:30 UTCmueschel Hi,
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?
12017-08-15 20:37:54 UTCmueschel Fixed several 'maxpeed' tags - could you check if I got them all?
12017-08-15 20:37:01 UTCmueschel Hi,
you added the tag "maxpeed:tilting" on a bunch of tracks. Could you edit them and add the missing 's'?

Cheers, Jan
22017-08-15 21:58:10 UTCflierfy Hello Jan,
I thank you for the hint. I've added the missing letter.
With thankful regards, Stephan
12017-08-14 11:35:09 UTCmueschel Hi,
could you explain the meaning of 'eruv' on this way?

Cheers, Jan
22017-08-14 14:56:41 UTCElliottPlack Jan,

Sure, an eruv is a physical object that serves as a symbolic boundary in the Jewish Orthodox faith. Read more:

There isn't a great tag for this yet on OSM, so I added this under the premise of the "Any tags you like" principle (http://wiki.opens...
32017-08-14 15:13:16 UTCmueschel Alright, I haven't seen this before.
I see one potential problem with the tagging: A barrier=* implies an access restriction, by default access=no. So, if anybody by mistake adds a common node with any highway, routing engines might think traffic is blocked.
I don't think we have a proper tagging...
42017-08-15 02:48:02 UTCElliottPlack Jan: I'm glad that you found this and commented. I think your idea is superb. I was trying to decide if I should use an existing key like barrier but you make a good point that it could be interpreted by a routing engine as a generic barrier. Better to start something totally fresh.

What do you t...
52017-08-15 18:42:39 UTCmueschel ':' versus '_' - there is no functional difference between the two. Usually, ':' is used for subkeys, e.g. a key that further describes the main key, e.g. 'capacity' and the more specific 'capacity:disabled'. The underscore is more used like a replacement for a space as in "internet_access"...
12017-08-14 09:22:05 UTCmueschel Hi,
you added the tag "Wifi_Etecsa = Wifi_Etecsa" on several nodes - this is not a common tag, could you explain its meaning? If it is the operator of the Wifi, consider the key internet_access:operator

Cheers, Jan
12017-08-14 09:19:14 UTCmueschel Hi,

Cheers, Jan
22017-08-14 09:43:42 UTCfreeExec Thanks for the help, I will change for the planned.

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.
Thanks for taking care!
42017-08-14 19:53:47 UTCUndearius I've changed the tags to the correct ones. Thank you for the help.
12017-08-06 13:07:59 UTCmueschel Hi,
you used the tag "Varsure" on some of these nodes. Could you explain its meaning?

Cheers, Jan
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,

I was wrong, now all "Varsure" tags are correct (I found out the use of "taginfo" so I saw the list of all the wrong tags)

Cheers, Danilo
42017-08-09 12:04:58 UTCmueschel Hi,
thanks for taking the time and fixing this. You can also use search for a key (click on 'wizard' and enter "Varsure=* global" then click run)
12017-08-09 07:17:23 UTCmueschel Hi,
bist du sicher, dass die Fahrt hier wirklich 20 Minuten dauert? Oder meinst du, dass die Fähre alle 20 Minuten fährt?

12017-08-06 20:11:00 UTCmueschel Hi,

i might have misunderstood it
32017-08-06 21:50:48 UTCmueschel I don't think they meant to copy all the data from there. You can have a look how other restaurants of this chain are mapped:
42017-08-07 14:09:40 UTCmneko OK, I think I corrected the ones I broke
52017-08-08 18:29:35 UTCmueschel This looks good. *thumbs up
12017-08-08 10:28:58 UTCmueschel Hi,
these 32 buildings have the tag "B30 2DH=B30" which looks like a mistake. Could you check that?

Cheers, Jan
22017-08-08 14:17:43 UTCbrianboru Thanks Jan - what happened here I don't know! Corrected now
12017-08-08 10:27:16 UTCmueschel These changes contain 33x "maxpeed" instead of "maxspeed".
12017-08-07 11:11:44 UTCmueschel Hi,
could you check the tag on this road (and other segments of it)
"L3036 = Reddy's Crossroads" looks like a mistake.

Cheers, Jan
12017-08-07 11:06:06 UTCmueschel Hi,

22017-08-06 13:48:28 UTCMarkus Valo Thanks for noticing! Tried to clean all of them. All of those tags are unnecessary.

12017-08-06 13:17:09 UTCmueschel Hi,
you used the tag "caricato=false" on 41 ways. This tag is not used in any other place - could you explain its meaning?

Cheers, Jan
12017-08-06 12:59:17 UTCmueschel Is there any chance that this import gets cleaned up? (Just commenting this one changeset, not all of them)

There are hundreds of POIs without proper tags, with a lot of text in undocumented tags like "note50", "opening_hours" which don't use the documented syntax and so on.
12017-07-10 07:44:27 UTCmueschel Hi,
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'

Various people are doing some corrections on this data, but in the end most of the information remains useless.

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.
42017-07-11 10:11:44 UTCAndreas Lattmann Ciao Nemo_bis, hai fatto la pagina nel Wiki per l' import? Non la riesco a trovare. Grazie
52017-08-05 18:20:31 UTCmueschel Are you still going to fix this and provide a documentation of the import?
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.
12017-08-04 15:23:04 UTCmueschel Hi,
could you check this way, it has foreign tags only:

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?

Btw, what is the precise license of this data? Pure cc-by is not compatible with ODbL!

22017-08-03 15:32:13 UTCNakaner Hallo Jan,

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.

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

Sure! This is for people using OSM-based GPS apps (ex.: to know which lane is for regular cars (≤3.5t meaning “for vehicles with a weight up to 3,5 tons), and which one is for trucks (TIR, abbreviation of Transport International Routier, is understood by every truck driver u...
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?

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

12017-06-24 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)

You could have a look to the wiki to see how bus stops are currently mapped.
12017-06-23 12:14:05 UTCmueschel Hi,
the 198 objects you added here contain some rather strange tags:
Where these added by mistake or is there some useful information contained?

Cheers, Jan
12017-06-22 08:54:02 UTCmueschel Hallo,
du gibst hier als Quelle ein Buch an - hast du eine schriftliche Genehmigung, diese Daten in OSM zu übernehmen? Die Lizenz unter der Quellen stehen, muss mit der ODbL von OSM kompatibel sein.
Gruß, Jan
22017-06-22 14:37:54 UTCosm_Ralef Hallo Jan,
ich war etwas blauäugig, diese Infos so einzustellen. Bin nicht davon ausgegangen, das die hier schon urherberrechtlich interessant ist, da nur kurze Auszüge mit Quellenangabe. Eine Genehmigung wird auch schwierig, da der Verfasser leider 2001 verstorben ist.

Ich werde alle ...
12017-06-21 20:42:51 UTCmueschel Hi,
you used the tag "litname = no". Did you mean "lit=no"?
Cheers, Jan
22017-06-22 14:27:31 UTCLowe253 Hi, mueschel

you guessed right. Already fixed.

12017-06-21 20:23:39 UTCmueschel Hi,
between 6th and 7th street you created 3 overlapping roads. Could you check and fix that?
Cheers, Jan
12017-06-21 19:39:57 UTCmueschel Hi,
what is the meaning of this tag?
ata_delete:construction \t2017-06-30
on node

If there is some temporary construction, it's best to use the "temporary" prefix or "conditional" suffix, see:
12017-06-21 12:36:20 UTCmueschel Hi,
dieser Tag hier stimmt leider auch nicht so ganz:
"access:agricultural:forward:conditional =\tnone @ maxweight"
Keine Gewichtsbeschränkung für landwirtschaftliche Fahrzeuge wäre

maxweight:forward:conditional = none @ agricultural

12017-06-20 21:22:52 UTCmueschel Hi,
you used the tags "moped_p" and "moped_a" in this changeset. These are not used very often - moped_P and moped_A are used more often. Could you adapt to this more common spelling of the keys?
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.
12017-06-20 21:30:24 UTCmueschel Hi,
du nutzt hier die Tags
Das Suffix :left bzw. :right ist in diesem Zusammenhang nicht definiert - was möchtest du ausdrücken?
Gruß, Jan
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. Deshalb gibt es eine Einschränkung: linker Fahrstreifen Fahrzeuge mit maximal 12t, rechter Fahrstreifen mit minimalem Abstand von 50m für LKW. Das habe ich versucht, umzusetzen.
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.
42017-06-21 07:35:38 UTCProtoxenus Ok, daran hatte ich nicht gedacht. Danke für den Hinweis.
12017-06-11 09:18:30 UTCwhb Was bedeutet denn "2017 = 4 km/h"?
z.B. hier:
22017-06-13 16:07:51 UTCdornweg Was "2017 = 4 km/h" bedeutet würde mich auch interessieren. Der Eintrag war schon vorhanden, und ich wollte ihn nicht einfach löschen.
32017-06-20 19:59:36 UTCmueschel Da muss ich dich leider enttäuschen, den Tag gibt es erst seit diesem Changeset. Ich lösche ihn dann mal.
12017-06-20 11:10:33 UTCmueschel Hi,
I found a speling mistake on 43 ways: area:higway instead of area:highway - could you have a look and fix it?

Cheers, Jan
22017-06-20 19:50:29 UTCCiemek Hi
I corrected spelling mistakes
12017-06-20 11:08:19 UTCmueschel Please stop adding new objects and sort out your spelling mistakes. Most of the data you added is completely useless because of spelling mistakes. It's likely we have to fully delete it because it would take days to clean everything up by hand.
12017-06-19 10:56:15 UTCmueschel Hi,
you added many objects with foreign tags which don't look like they should appear in OSM data, e.g.

Could you have a look and clean this up?

Cheers, Jan
12017-06-19 10:48:52 UTCmueschel Hi,
I saw you added the tag "width:parking:lane:both" on several ways. This tag is not used in any other place up to now. In other places, the tag is "parking:lane:both:width". Could you change this to the common tag?

Cheers, Jan
22017-06-21 04:13:55 UTCtheangrytomato Whoops, sorry about that. Should have it fixed tonight!
12017-06-19 10:20:45 UTCmueschel Hi,
please check all your tagging of nodes for correctness. Spelling is very important! Most of these tags with spelling mistakes were added by you and can not be used at all in OSM:

12017-06-17 08:13:51 UTCmueschel Hi,
du hast hier Tags wie 'roadbike-smoothness', 'roadbike:soothness' und 'roadbike:smoothness' hinzugefügt, jeweils etwa 80 Mal.
Diese Tags gibt es bisher nicht, und sie entsprechen auch nicht den üblichen Taggingregeln.
a) 2 davon haben Schreibfehler, das letzte ist das korrekteste.
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.
Ich würde den key in smoothness:roadbike ändern...
32017-06-19 08:51:30 UTCmueschel Ok. Eine Dokumentation in Form eines Proposals sollte es dann schon geben. Am besten natürlich gleich mit Blick auf alle möglichen Verkehrsteilnehmer, nicht nur auf Radfahrer bezogen.
12017-06-17 18:07:55 UTCmueschel Hi,
please watch out for the spelling of tags. Only correctly spelled tags can be used by OSM software.
E.g. I found 40 objects with the tag 'operater', which should read 'operator'.
I didn't check all your edits, but I also found a "amenity=post office" which should be "amenity=po...

12017-06-16 18:05:23 UTCmueschel Hi,

12017-06-15 13:37:25 UTCmueschel Hi,
you added the key "wayID" to several roads. This key is not used anywhere else - what is the meaning? Is it an official number? This is tagged as 'ref' usually.

Cheers, Jan
12017-06-15 13:36:15 UTCmueschel Hi,
could you check this tagging:

The tag "M = 4" looks like a mistake.
Cheers, Jan
12017-06-15 13:29:30 UTCmueschel Hi,
I saw you added some destination tags lately. I would like to point out the usual order of suffixes, e.g.
(not destination:lanes:colour:backward)

In general, the scheme is:
key[:subkey][:hgv|:bicycle|...][:lanes][:forward|:backward|:both_ways] = *

12017-06-14 11:46:48 UTCmueschel Hi,

12017-06-14 12:51:42 UTCmueschel Hi,

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

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 10:38:34 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!

12017-06-12 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,

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.

you uploaded many objects with very strange tags here, like these:

addr:place \t02050
building \ttran thanh toan
highway \tdhok
landuse \t16092737352
place \t0340302730
shop \t56/26

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
12017-05-28 10:42:43 UTCmueschel Hi,
I saw this way:
The tag "loading zone = yes" doesn't exist yet.
Would these tags be what you try to express?
highway = service
area = yes
vehicle = delivery
22017-05-29 17:42:52 UTCLAEM Hi,

Yes, thank you.
12017-05-28 10:35:59 UTCmueschel Hallo,
ich habe hier an einigen Nodes den Key "slope_curb" gesehen, "sloped_curb" wäre richtig. Schaust du da mal nach?
Gruß, Jan
22017-05-28 16:04:00 UTCemga Hopla, das sollte natürlich nicht sein, da hab ich mich vertippt. Schau es mir an!
32017-05-28 16:22:42 UTCemga Sollte passen, Danke für den Hinweis
12017-05-28 10:34:32 UTCmueschel Moin,
habe hier an 11 Nodes den Key "sloped_curbs" gesehen - "sloped_curb" wäre richtig.

Gruß, Jan
22017-05-28 11:14:07 UTCThoschi Hi,
danke für den Hinweis. Habe aber jetzt auf die Schnelle nur 6 Nodes wiedergefunden (und geändert).
Gruß Thorsten
12017-05-28 10:22:56 UTCmueschel Hi,
could you check this node?
The tag seems strange:
5653 = sv:Gora_Sad-Ishtrag
22017-05-28 17:05:30 UTCgosausee @mueschel:
thx 4 your info. i changed it!
12017-05-28 10:19:45 UTCmueschel Hi, something went wrong here: You didn't "remove unnecesary tags", but added 100 nodes with just a strange "@id" tag.
Could you fix this?
Cheers, Jan
22017-05-29 05:55:40 UTCmarianp_telenav Done! Thank's!
Regards, Marian
12017-05-26 09:02:47 UTCmueschel Hi,
you put the tag "barriere = all" on 24 ways - looks like a mistake. Did you mean "barrier = wall"?

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.

Gruß, Jan
22017-05-26 10:28:49 UTCToniE Danke Jan,

dann werde ich mal in mich gehen und nachvollziehen, wo ich das bisher schon gemapped habe. Außer hier wohl nur am westlichen Teil der Truderinger Straße - glaub' ich.

12017-05-24 18:44:32 UTCmueschel Ich habe diesen Changeset revertiert - viele Gebäudedetails gelöscht.
22017-05-24 18:46:28 UTCmueschel Zur Information: Die meisten Gebäude am Campus waren mit vollständigem 3D-Mapping erfasst, siehe z.B. hier:

12017-05-24 11:21:19 UTCmueschel Hi,
I saw the tag "being=sourse" on many objects. Did you want to write "source = bing"?

Cheers, Jan
12017-05-23 20:39:38 UTCmueschel Hi,
in your edits you used the keys
Could you use just one spelling?
22017-05-23 20:40:25 UTCmueschel Addendum: FAA:LFSN is used 52 times already
32017-05-24 13:35:32 UTCmicahcochran I'll try to do better spelling it. You are correct that it should be FAA:LFSN. This is "FAA's Landing Facility Site Number". I should probably remove it when there is some other kind of ID.

12017-05-21 17:52:52 UTCmueschel Moin,
du hast dieser Straße zwei maxspeeds verpasst, kannst du das mal nachprüfen?
22017-05-21 21:32:51 UTCPrince Kassad das war definitiv nicht beabsichtigt. Anscheinend hatte vorher jede Fahrtrichtung ein unterschiedliches maxspeed (30 hin und 50 zurück), woraus dann beim Zusammenfügen "maxspeed=30;50" wurde. Ohne vor Ort gewesen zu sein müsste man aber raten, ob jetzt 30 oder 50 gilt. Was d...
32017-05-21 21:36:42 UTCPrince Kassad Ich hab gerade gesehen dass es für die Ecke frische Mapillary-Bilder gibt. Demnach ist definitiv 30 richtig (ist eine Tempo-30-Zone), 50 ist Schmarrn. Hab das auch schon korrigiert:
12017-05-21 16:48:53 UTCmueschel Hi,
I found four buildings with the tag "ODK =OMK". Looks like a mistake, could you check that?

Cheers, Jan
22017-05-26 05:15:39 UTCmmahmud Hi, thanks for showing me this. Somehow it got pasted on the features. I will correct them.
12017-05-20 15:39:59 UTCmueschel Diese Straße ist nicht komplett gesperrt, sondern z.Z. nur ein kleiner Abschnitt westlich des Waldes.
12017-05-20 13:45:25 UTCmueschel Hallo,
du hast hier in den letzten Jahren ja so einige Wanderrouten eingetragen. Bei den Längenangaben mit dem "distance" Tag hast du aber Kommazahlen benutzt anstelle des in OSM üblichen englischen Punktes als Dezimaltrenner. Würdest du da vielleicht bei Gelegenheit einen ...
22017-06-05 09:28:53 UTCHGSandhagen Hallo Jan,

ich habe die Distanzen der Wanderrouten "OSM-konform" geändert.
Gruß, Hans-Gerd
12017-05-20 13:18:32 UTCmueschel Hi,
ich finde hier einige Wege, bei denen du das "incline" Tag geändert hast, z.B. von "2%" auf den merkwürdigen Text "up,_down,_5%". Könntest du das bitte wieder korrigieren?

Gruß, Jan
12017-05-19 10:48:55 UTCmueschel Hi,
it looks like you used these tags to describe the Symbol for this route?
background \tred_frame
foreground1 \tred_rectangle
foreground2 \twhite_rectangle

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.

22017-07-26 18:39:01 UTCSAnugroho Sorry, late response. Already fixed by changeset Thank you.
12017-05-16 10:44:26 UTCmueschel Hi,
could you check this way? It has only foreign keys:

Cheers, Jan
22017-07-26 18:20:27 UTCSAnugroho Sorry, late respond. Fixed by changeset Thank you.
12017-05-16 10:36:55 UTCmueschel Hi,
please watch out for the spelling of keys. On 35 nodes I found "water_tankt:housenumber" instead of "water_tank:housenumber" Could you have a look and correct these?

Cheers, Jan
12017-05-16 10:35:00 UTCmueschel Hi,

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

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).
12017-05-12 10:41:53 UTCmueschel Hi,
you added the key "cossing_ref" 78 times. Correct would be "crossing_ref". Could you have a look and fix this? Cheers, Jan
12017-05-11 09:32:23 UTCmueschel Hi,

22017-05-11 14:46:29 UTCd3mol3k Thanks for paying attention - something got pasted (I do not know how) - corrected
12017-05-10 11:13:48 UTCmueschel Hi,
just a hint: You used the tag combination "building = yes" "wall = no". You can use "building = roof" instead.

Cheers, Jan
22017-05-11 10:12:51 UTCagab29 Hello Jan,

Unfortunately this building tag is automatically generated by french import cadastre tool.

May be could you suggest your idea to developer at

Best regards

12017-05-09 10:49:56 UTCmueschel Hi,
this way got rather strange tags, could you check and correct that?

Cheers, Jan
22017-05-09 11:02:07 UTCsebastic Please adjust the tags as you see fit.

The the tags from the outer way were simply moved to the relation as part of the old-style multipolygon fixing effort.

There is a lot of import data in these regions, that is for the local community to deal with.
32017-05-09 11:18:53 UTCmueschel Hi,
thanks for the reply. I think the situation is different for this way, have a look to the full history:
It was natural=wood until a week ago, then all tags were deleted by someone else and you added some new tags. I don't see that this w...
42017-05-09 11:30:22 UTCsebastic There were a lot of duplicate node issues in this area. Those were fixed after the JOSM validator reported the issues before uploading the previously old-style multipolygons.
52017-05-09 17:25:00 UTCmueschel I guess natural=wood is right and the rest can be removed?
62017-05-09 18:50:27 UTCsebastic The tags seem to imply so, double check with satellite imagery.
72017-05-09 18:55:54 UTCmueschel Looks fine. I just changed it.
12017-05-09 10:39:15 UTCmueschel Hi,
welcome to OSM.
In this edit, a few mistakes happened.
The tag "amenity=parking" should be put on the area only, but not on all of the nodes the area consists of.
Second, many objects contain many foreign keys which do not belong in the OSM database and should be removed; E.g.
12017-05-08 19:54:33 UTCmueschel Hi,
could you check the name of this street? It only has a "nameol" and "old_name" tag.

Cheers, Jan
12017-05-08 19:52:57 UTCmueschel Moin,
note:motor_vehicle:backward \t= "Zubringerdienst gestattet"

Ist das nicht das, was OSM unter "destination" versteht? In DE entspricht das dem "Anlieger frei".

Gruß, Jan
12017-05-08 18:59:16 UTCmueschel Hi,
welcome to OSM.
Please watch out for the correct spelling of tags - e.g. you added several buildings with the tag "builing" instead of "building".

Cheers, Jan
12017-05-06 14:19:25 UTCmueschel Hi,
dieses Tor hat ein merkwürdiges Tag "max4:10". Kannst du da mal nachschauen?

22017-05-06 17:50:21 UTCCassini97 Salve Jan!

Ist doch frängggisch! ;-)

Geändert... jedenfalls, wenn ich die Sitzung gleich hochlade!

Dank und Gruß!
12017-05-06 14:18:01 UTCmueschel Hi,
you put the tag "mofa = n" on this bridge: (and its other parts)
Is it 'mofa = no' or 'moped = no'?
22017-05-06 14:39:56 UTCCarto'Cité Thank for noticing. This has now been fixed to moped=no.
12017-05-06 13:44:56 UTCmueschel Hi,
you added the tag "NaPTANAreaCode" to all of these nodes. I guess this should be converted to "naptan:AtcoCode", as this is a tag used in many other places already.

12017-05-06 13:42:51 UTCmueschel Hi,
you added many strange tags here, like these:
ExtendedEn=3 gros { FACING_3 PTE EXT } FACING_3-E01PTE 109710 38.1 0.0 5 { 0 0 0 0 }
What is the meaning of all this?
Also, indoor corridors should be tagged as ind...
22017-05-08 13:09:17 UTCMichi92 Dear Jan,

those tags descend from the shape files from which the map was created. For this reason, they will be removed as soon as possible.
The tag highway=footway is necessary to guarantee the beta navigation as Adrien Pavie suggested.


32017-06-03 09:10:20 UTCmmd Those shapefiles seem to originate from some AutoCAD files. How about the copyright status of those files? In any case, has this been discussed with the community beforehand? Are you aware of the following process?
42017-06-04 18:28:34 UTCMichi92 Dear mmd,

the shapefiles were originated from Quantum Gis software, which is open source.
Moreover the plans were officially provided from the building office of "Sapienza" University of Rome .

With my warmest regards,

52017-06-04 18:32:16 UTCmmd FYI: OSM Data Working Group (DWG) has already started reverting your imports as they don't adhere to OSM standards: see as an example.
12017-05-06 13:39:04 UTCmueschel Hi,
you added the tag "name:tok" to many countries. Which language does 'tok' refer to? I can't find it in the list of ISO 639 language codes.
12017-05-06 13:36:45 UTCmueschel Hi,
this village consists of social facilities only? There are many ways overlapping each other and the objects have tags (like 'facility_t') which don't seem to belong in the OSM database. Could you have a look and correct these issues?
22017-05-06 20:38:48 UTCkmoses28 These tags are in the process of being cleaned up.
12017-05-06 11:48:08 UTCmueschel Hi,
bitte denke daran Knoten zu setzen wenn zwei Wege sich kreuzen, z.B. ein Fußweg der eine Straße überquert.
Habe gerade einige solcher Punkte in Michelstadt korrigiert.

Gruß, Jan
12017-05-06 11:32:00 UTCmueschel Vorsicht beim Korrigieren von diesen duplicate ways - in der Gegend von Würzburg ist das momentane Problem nicht mit ein paar lokalen Edits zu lösen, die machen es eher noch schlimmer weil Reverts nicht mehr möglich sind.

12017-05-06 11:29:06 UTCmueschel Bitte füge keine neuen Wege mehr hinzu die mit anderen Wegen überlappen. Hier in der Region ist ein riesiges Chaos entstanden, das ersteinmal beseitigt werden muss.
12017-04-08 11:40:55 UTCmueschel Hi,

I think it is "Fraile", according to IGAC maps, but I have no field evidence for the rivers name.
32017-05-04 10:24:11 UTCmueschel Alright. I'll change the tag "Fraile = Fraile" to "name = Fraile".

12017-05-02 11:11:02 UTCmueschel Hi,

Cheers, Jan
22017-04-27 08:44:19 UTCtaxi301 Hi .
This is a proposal how to improve the tagging of trees (natural=tree) for the use in 3D-applications.

I was curious if it would show up in 3D, I would improve on type = palm
Sorry for my English but only by translator. Regar...
32017-04-27 17:18:48 UTCmueschel Your tagging is fine. Just a spelling mistake:
You write: "crown_type:"
But it should be: "crown_type"
12017-04-26 09:49:16 UTCmueschel Hi,
could you check the tagging changes? E.g. 'ref:-2001-02-12' is not a valid key. There should be a double '--' when using dates according to the wiki.

Cheers, Jan
22017-04-27 08:35:01 UTCfgouget As far as I can tell the wiki says to use " key:-date = value", and that the use of '--' is outdated: "An older version of ISO 8601 used the double hyphen to replace omitted years in partial dates".
32017-04-27 17:16:24 UTCmueschel Indeed, it does. Since 7 days at least.
There is an extensive discussion on the talk page:
12017-04-25 12:56:34 UTClenny32 The addr:* node already exists
There is no need to create another one at the restaurant
22017-04-25 17:51:27 UTCmueschel Hi,
I'm not aware of any tool that makes use of these tags. For most applications the tagged address was unusable. The existence of another node close by with address information is not sufficient to find the actual address of this POI.
The only case how addresses of another object can be used on...
32017-04-26 06:30:46 UTCdgitto It is the tool that have to follow (use) a schema. Not the tag schema follow some tools.
Is normal that no tools exist, when a schema starts to be used.
42017-04-26 08:07:33 UTCmueschel Until this schema has been adopted, we have to stick to the old scheme, otherwise we lose information. I.e. both tags have to exist in parallel.
But, I really doubt that any tool will use this tagging, based on a 4 year old draft without even an RFC.
52017-04-26 09:20:24 UTClenny32 It seems to me that an address should be unique (it exists with or without POI) it is an object in its own right. Many POIs have no address.
If it is the same node, when the POI disappears or moves, the address may be deleted or moved with the poi by the inattentive contributor. Contact information...
12017-04-25 15:08:07 UTCmueschel Hi,
this changeset created 9 relations with no common tags - could you check this and replace the foreign keys with common ones if necesseary?

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

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

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

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

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

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

Cheers, Jan
22017-04-28 06:38:32 UTCtanjeff Hello Jan,
the buildings at Layenhof have 4-digit numbers which I mapped as addr:housenumber. The building you mentioned seems to have two numbers (63 and 5872), but I don't remember the details. I will check that when I'm there again (might take 2 weeks). I will add a further comment then.
32017-06-11 12:17:45 UTCtanjeff Hello Jan,
Sorry for the delay, I was quite busy. As I wrote, the houses in the area have 4-digit numbers. For most buildings, I mapped this number as addr:housenumber.

But the building in question has two numbers: 64 (not 63) and 5872. I guess that 64 is the number to use when sending letters, ...
12017-04-20 18:56:29 UTCmueschel Hallo,
kannst du nochmal über diese 3 Relationen schauen? Eine ist nicht geschlossen, alle drei haben keinen Namen

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

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

12017-04-18 10:57:07 UTCmueschel Hi,

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

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

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

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


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

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

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

You do not need to delete them, these are blanks. Thank you
42017-04-08 14:44:38 UTCmueschel What do you mean by 'blanks'? Single nodes without tags are just useless.

What happened?
Was those same tags accidentallly copied/applied to all buildings?

12017-04-04 17:18:08 UTCmueschel Hi,
could you explain the meaning of these tags?


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

22017-03-21 12:39:15 UTCTomas Straupis It is a temporary tag to mark duplicate addresses until contact:* scheme is approved or at least we (Lithuanian mapping community) come to agreement that support of contact:* is good enough. For the time being f.e. iD editor does not support contact:*
We need this addr:contact info for QA and later...
12017-03-21 11:05:37 UTCmueschel Hi,
welcome to OSM. in your edits you used tags like '2nd floor occupant', 'other occupants' and several similar ones. These are not defined in the wiki and therefore are rather useless because none of our software can understand it. Please have a look to the wiki how POI like offices and shops hav...
12017-03-20 13:32:12 UTCmueschel Hi,
Could you check the spelling of tags? I found many 'buiding:levels' with a missing 'l'.

22017-03-21 03:59:09 UTCJessAk71 Oops so sorry my mistake on the missing letter I will double check and fix all them next week. Thanks for letting me know.
12017-03-20 09:38:58 UTCmueschel Partially reverted. Reason: features do not exist.
12017-03-20 09:37:30 UTCmueschel I reverted this changeset. Reason: This is a stream, not a man_made=breakwater
12017-03-20 09:36:26 UTCmueschel I reverted this changeset. Reason: This is not a park.
12017-03-19 15:12:25 UTCmueschel Hi,
could you have a look to the spelling of tags? E.g. I found
'electrifie' which should be 'electrified'
name_fa -> name:fa
full_name_ -> full_name
and few more. I corrected some of them but I don't know if I catched all.

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

12017-03-19 14:59:06 UTCmueschel Hi,
did you consider using the 'destination_sign' tagging for these signs?

This makes using the data much simpler like on this sign:

12017-03-19 14:50:49 UTCmueschel Hi,
could you check this node:

hig=yes looks like a mistake

12017-03-19 14:44:48 UTCmueschel Hallo,
du hast hier bei einigen Tags ein '-' vorangestellt um sie zu 'deaktivieren'. Normalerweise benutzt man dafür einen der lifecycle prefixes, wie hier beschrieben:
Wahrscheinlich passt 'disused:' hier.
Gruß, Jan
22017-03-19 15:41:39 UTCProtoxenus Ja, meine Intention war, das das (wahrscheinlich defekte) Molenfeuer nicht gerendert wird. Ich gehe davon aus, das es zu Saisonbeginn wieder in Betrieb geht.

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

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

12017-03-17 11:53:09 UTCmueschel Hi, the trees you add have a strange tag: "2016 = 298". I corrected some yesterday, but there are more you added today. I guess it should be "ref = 2016.298". Could you have a look and fix that?
Cheers, Jan
12017-03-16 11:37:19 UTCmueschel Hi,

buildingxx:floor should be floor:material
building:walls should be building:material
building:roof should be roof:material

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

12017-03-15 16:15:33 UTCmueschel Hi,

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

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

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

Cheers, Jan
22017-03-10 14:15:16 UTCigitov Hi,
thanks for comment.
These landcover tags are still "raw", not final.
In the Russian-speaking OSM-community there is a discussion on the scheme for tagging landscapes (woodlands, shrubs, etc.). Much can change. Writing proposal still premature.
12017-03-10 09:23:44 UTCmueschel Hi,

ich habe das feature hier gelesen:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Gruss, Jan
22017-03-01 12:08:47 UTCmentor2002 Sorry,
danke für den Hinweis... das hat sich der Copy - Paste Fehlerteufel eingeschlichen.
12017-02-28 15:13:35 UTCmuralito Would'nt it be better to use tag "rooms" instead of "number_of_apartments"?
22017-02-28 15:20:24 UTCmueschel I just corrected the obvious spelling mistake in the key.
'number_of_apartments' is already used 1800 times, so I consider it a valid tag. I don't know if there are cases where someone distinguished between number of rooms and number of apartments on a single object.
12017-02-28 11:57:01 UTCmueschel Hi,
if you want to tag names in foreign languages: The language has to be given as ISO-639 code, e.g. has the code 'cr' and Innu has 'moe'.

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

Cheers, Jan
22017-02-28 15:10:59 UTCmuralito And/Or maybe ask for help to the Iocal community.
12017-02-28 11:47:12 UTCmueschel Hi,

It has two contradicting tacticle_paving tags.

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

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

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

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

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

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

Cheers, Jan
22017-02-27 13:27:43 UTCbibi6 Hi, I'm going to change these to "planned". Thanks ;)
32017-02-27 13:34:49 UTCbibi6 ... I actually decided to use "proposed", as the way may change - but it will probably not. Wait and see ^^
12017-02-26 13:08:47 UTCmueschel Hallo,
kannst du hier nach dem Namen schauen? Da scheint etwas beim Tagging schiefgegangen zu sein.

Danke für den Hinweis.
12017-02-25 12:38:15 UTCmueschel Hi, could you check this way?
Something went wrong with the name tag.
Cheers, Jan
12017-02-23 11:35:23 UTCmueschel Hi,
you used the keys railway:date_start and :date_end. The usual key for this is railway:start_date and :end_date.
Could you have a look and correct this?
Cheers, Jan
22017-02-26 16:20:44 UTCsfrank Hi,
I fixed it. Was accidently used, because first I used date:start and date:end.
12017-02-23 11:23:38 UTCmueschel Hi,
these 62 buildings have a spelling mistake in the tags: 'add:province' instead of 'addr:province'. Could you have a look and fix this?

this changeset generated a lot of objects with a huge number of tags that are not documented and seem to have been added by mistake during this import.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Does it fit?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

in meinen Augen (als Eisenbahnmapper) sind die Inhalte dieser Relation nicht vor Ort überprüfbar und genügen daher nicht den Anforderungen, die an Objekte gestellt werden, die in OSM eingetragen werden. Mit "Lupe Neuostheim" ist höchstwahrscheinlich eine D...
12017-02-05 21:44:05 UTCmueschel Wurde hier die Ampel tatsächlich wieder abgebaut?
Vor ein paar Monaten war sie noch da.
12017-02-05 21:30:31 UTCmueschel Hallo Michael,
ist zwar schon lange her, aber: Was befindet sich eigentlich an den "Planeten-"Knoten? Nur ein Name ist so nichtssagend. Eine Informationstafel oder so? Dann könnte man das entsprechend taggen.
Gruß, Jan
12017-02-05 21:28:00 UTCmueschel Hallo,
vorher stammen diese Namen? Informationen aus anderen Karten dürfen in der Regel nicht verwendet werden (Lizenzen!)

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

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

Cheers, Jan
22017-02-05 18:29:22 UTCaiwetir The border on the portion of the Winema National Forest in this region appears to be backwards, it shows landuse forest on the basemap but when editing, the border is on the land around the forest. I reverted to make sure it wasn't somethi...
32017-02-05 18:33:56 UTCmueschel JOSM shows the marker on the wrong side, because there is no way to decide which is the right one by looking at one outer way only. As soon as you download the whole multi-polygon, it switches to the correct side.
There is no "backwards" with respect to the direction of outer ways of mult...
42017-02-05 18:40:08 UTCaiwetir I saw that just now in JOSM, I was obviously editing on the web application. When you look at it on the web application it indeed looks backwards whether there is a backwards or not.
52017-02-05 19:04:39 UTCmueschel The problem is the same for both editors, they just can't decide what is inner and outer without loading the full relation - in case of iD I don't know if this is even possible. When handling huge multi-polygons like this, JOSM is a much better choice. E.g. because you can selectively load the fores...
62017-02-05 19:40:16 UTCaiwetir I could use help, changing all the tags is easy enough but I just took a closer look at the overlapping areas and it's pretty complex.

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

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

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

The names are from the 11000 villages file mentioned on
32017-02-04 15:41:12 UTCmueschel I didn't mean adding the villages, just these tags. They don't look like they belong to OSM and are not used in other places.
42017-02-04 16:52:19 UTCkatpatuka well yes - they are in the original file and I left them as is - comparable to other for osm useless tags like gns:dsg etc. originating from imports
12017-02-04 15:28:44 UTCmueschel Hallo,
hier sind 8 Wege ohne Tags entstanden, kannst du da nochmal nachschauen? z.B.

Cheers, Jan
12017-01-31 11:34:49 UTCmueschel Hi,
it's nice to see that you put a lot of effort in mapping destinations. Unfortunately, there is nobody who can use this data, because your tagging style is not documented and used only by you. Why don't you join the common tagging scheme which is successfully used thousands of times all over the...

Traffic signs are being rende...
32017-01-31 18:52:07 UTCmueschel All the tags listed in this project are well-described in the wiki.

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

72017-02-05 18:14:57 UTCyopaseopor
12017-01-17 11:48:12 UTCmueschel Could you please stop adding your personal fantasy about tagging again and again and stop vandalizing OSM data?
22017-01-17 21:43:55 UTCtrial +1, please at least describe what you want to do. Except BS I mean.
32017-02-02 16:59:13 UTCStereo Of course it's partly meant as a joke. At the SotM EU, we came across this strange box, and decided to dedicate it as a monument to RichardF. The RichardF box does exist, and the physical properties are all correct. Someone even slapped a "Surveyed by OSM" sticker on it.

It is an exampl...
42017-02-02 18:12:20 UTCmueschel And this "joke" now renders on every map as a huge pile of Unicode garbage, gives errors because of incorrect units in the height tag and service_times that don't follow the documented tagging rules.

But please move your tests to and add the link or the Wiki so that ...
62017-02-02 19:50:58 UTCmueschel The name:fr tag, which is rendered by doesn't contain the Unicode stuff. The default map shows the Unicode properly, too. But tag is just a collection of Unicode weirdness without any meaning.
72017-02-02 20:03:12 UTCtrial Right. Time to cleanup!
12017-02-02 11:28:28 UTCmueschel Hi,
could you check the tagging of this road?

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

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

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

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

As you describe a sub-group of bakeries, I would opt for a tagging like this:
shop = bakery
bakery = boulanger
42017-02-04 14:33:33 UTCphilh-591 OK. Actually I'll find out if the French User Group have a recommended practice on tagging for bakeries. If not, I'll put forward the method
shop=bakery; bakery=boulanger
shop=bakery; bakery=dépôt de pain
52017-02-04 16:29:50 UTCtrial
mueschel advice is good. Prevent using multiple keys as long as possible.
So if needed; I would add:
produced_on_site = yes/no
See [OSM-talk-fr]
12017-01-31 15:48:03 UTCmueschel Hallo,
das Tag "maxstay@Mi,Sa = 60" funktioniert so nicht, weil nicht per Software auswertbar.
Besser ist:
maxstay:conditional = 60 @ (We,Sa)
oder noch besser, mit Einschränkung auf den tatsächlichen Zeitraum, oder gilt das 24 Stunden?

Gruß, Jan
22017-01-31 15:58:43 UTCKartoGrapHiti Vielen Dank. Ich hatte im Wiki nicht verstanden, wie man es einträgt. Jetzt habe ich versucht, es zu korrigieren: maxstay:conditional=60 @ (We,Sa 07:00-14:00)

12017-01-31 11:57:22 UTCmueschel Hallo,

Ops, my mistake :)
Corrected. Thanks for the advice.
12017-01-31 11:55:54 UTCmueschel Hallo,

Ebenso werde ich fehlende Langsamfahrsignale ergänzen.

313 = 314 is a strange tag.

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

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

Gruß, Jan
22017-01-31 17:29:00 UTCJojo4u Ja die "Stockwerke" waren schon als building unpassend und habe ich jetzt entfernt. Geblieben ist nur man_made:part=yes.
12017-01-30 11:27:41 UTCmueschel Hi,

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


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

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

I thought that tags were not case sensitive.
I will try to correct.
the difference between EUR 27 and EUNIS is how subtle. EUR27 refer basically to the areas of Applied directives Habitat, while EUNIS is more general and sometimes...
12017-01-21 20:02:01 UTCmueschel Hi,
I found many ways with strange tags, like this one:

Could you have a look and correct these?

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

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

12017-01-21 13:45:04 UTCmueschel Hi,
I found this way with strange tags. Could you correct this?

Cheers, Jan
22017-01-21 15:48:36 UTCtaborda Hi. Sorry. I have made a mistake. I Will solve it. Thanks.
12017-01-21 13:31:58 UTCmueschel Hi,
wo kommen den diese ganzen Informationen her? Von Bing, wie du angibst, sicher nicht.

Außerdem ist beim Tagging einiges schiefgelaufen.
generator:output:electricity=yes/kWh - da macht der Wert keinen Sinn
generator: location - da gehört kein Leerzeichen rein
Und alle Knoten de...

12017-01-20 22:45:53 UTCmueschel Bitte fügen nicht blind "junction = roundabout" an Wege an, nur weil Osmose eine Warnung anzeigt. Ein roundabout muss immer mit einem entsprechenden blauen Schild ausgestattet sein, das ist bei Wendeplätzen wie diesem sicher nicht der Fall.
22017-01-20 22:50:43 UTCmueschel Hi,
please don't add "junction = roundabout" to places like this. This tag is only used in case there are the corresponding traffic signs and rules in place.
32017-01-29 18:43:50 UTCvenerdi I apologize for the error. I deduced the rules of precedence from aerial photos and I could not check for traffic signal. Thanks for your correction. In the case of closed lines that are reported as errors by Osmose it would probably be better to divide them into two parts to avoid the problem.
12017-01-20 22:28:51 UTCmueschel Hallo,
dein mapping von einfachen Kreuzungen mit sehr vielen einzelnen Wegen entspricht nicht der gängen Praxis und führt zu vielen Problemen, z.B. an dieser Kreuzung:
Da stimmen in vielen Fällen die jetzt not...
12017-01-20 22:13:30 UTCmueschel Hallo,
bei deinen Edits von Waldwegen sind hier in der Gegend sehr viele "überlappende Wege" entstanden. D.h. zwei Wege, die auf einem ganzen Stück übereinander liegen. Würdest du da nochmal einen Blick drauf werfen?
12017-01-19 11:39:47 UTCmueschel Hi,
this valley has a strange tag:
"Val Désél = Senté de la Gesa"
Is this the name?

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

Can I ask you how do you discovered it?

Ciao Carlo
