12017-04-27 10:56:25 UTCmanoharuss Hi osm update,


This seems like automated edit to me with a custom script. Has this been discussed and documented? What is the source of this data?
I have observed some issues with the edits.
1. https://www.openstreetmap.org/node/338794056/history is a node of a way on a remote area. I don't s...
22017-04-27 12:03:12 UTCalthio Hi,

I agree with manoharuss on this changeset, dear user "osm update".
It seems like you rely too heavily on nodes ids.

I would also suggest you use better changeset comments.
Moreover you could try to reduce the successive numbers of versions for only adding tags to one object.
\...
32017-04-27 13:31:29 UTCosm update Hi, the source is http://min-go.hr/, but I've made a mistake in my script. I'm reverting changes.
42017-04-27 15:15:03 UTCSomeoneElse Apparantly an otherwise untagged node on a footpath near me https://www.openstreetmap.org/node/339830304/history now sells LPG. Do I need to bring my own can?

12017-04-27 11:34:45 UTCCommodoortje Zo te zien heb je hier helemaal gelijk.
In de BAG (Basisadministratie Adressen en Gebouwen) staat dit schuurtje niet vermeld.

22017-04-27 12:44:45 UTCSomeoneElse @Commodoortje Interestingly Bing and Mapbox satellite both show the extension - it it really likely that it has been demolished, or is BAG perhaps just out of date here?
32017-04-27 12:52:04 UTCCommodoortje Yes it is. BAG is in this case not actual.
12017-04-26 08:10:27 UTCSomeoneElse Hello,
Can you explain why you removed the detailed tags from https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/263723286/history and added it to the address node instead? Also, "reverted due to ignorance" isn't a very helpful changeset comment if, as here, the features were added by a new mapper.
Best...
22017-04-26 08:42:55 UTCeggie This was the last changeset in a range of lots of wrong and good tags. We got no response at the changesets. Only in a personal message. We askes the mapper to stop for the moment but we got no response. By the way I fixed this edit and all the informatie is at the adressnode now as an example for s...
12017-04-26 07:21:11 UTCSomeoneElse Hello and welcome to OpenStreetMap!
Can you explain why you deleted the shops such as http://www.openstreetmap.org/node/3715328045/history on this street? Are they really no longer there any more?
Best Regards,

22017-04-26 07:52:57 UTCSomeoneElse Bonjour et bienvenue à OpenStreetMap!
Pouvez-vous expliquer pourquoi vous avez supprimé les magasins tels que http://www.openstreetmap.org/node/3715328045/history commentaires sur cette rue? Sont-ils vraiment plus là plus?
Cordialement,

12017-04-25 15:54:00 UTCSomeoneElse Hello,
Can you explain the reason for the building deletions in here such as http://www.openstreetmap.org/way/42558687/history ? That still exists on the imagery. Has it really been demolished?

12017-04-25 15:36:54 UTCSomeoneElse Hi,
I'd suggest actually checking these in a bit more detail before you mechanically edit them - https://www.openstreetmap.org/node/4300814810/history is clearly just garbage (and was the subject of a previous revert).
Cheers,
Andy
22017-04-25 18:10:26 UTCAleks-Berlin Hi Andy, actually the decision how far a fix should be is not htat easy. One the one hand we should "respect the work of others" (and not delete a likely bad name-tag). But I would also like to reach a state in OSM, that makes it more easy useable (less exceptions, country specific rules, ...
12017-04-25 07:57:27 UTCSomeoneElse Just for info I've added a 0-hour block at https://www.openstreetmap.org/user_blocks/1328 and reverted to the pre-edit-war situation in http://www.openstreetmap.org/changeset/48114086 .
12017-04-22 08:26:47 UTCSomeoneElse Please don't duplicate data - if something you're using to search for pubs doesn't find pubs mapped as ways it'll miss a lot of pubs (roughly a third in the UK - http://taginfo.openstreetmap.org.uk/tags/amenity=pub )
22017-04-24 22:53:57 UTCElectric Monk I suggest you go to Overpass Turbo and look at the example query that comes up. Points Of Interest are called "points" for a reason.
32017-04-24 23:13:24 UTCSomeoneElse Er, OK....

In http://overpass-turbo.eu/ if I click "wizard", type in "pub" and "build query" I get http://overpass-turbo.eu/s/oBt which searches for amenity=pub on nodes, ways and relations.

12017-04-03 09:17:12 UTCSomeoneElse Just checking - does the ISO code that you've added here apply to:
1) The territory held by the Polisario Front
2) The former state of Western Sahara
As you may be aware, there is more than one claim over the latter. If the answer is "2" then these iso codes don't belong here.

22017-04-24 18:24:59 UTCgeo_2016 hi i'm sorry i think my "fix" was a bit too fast and not thought through entirely.
should i or would your reverse it (delete the iso3166 code?)
32017-04-24 20:05:19 UTCSomeoneElse Hi,
I've already done it in http://www.openstreetmap.org/changeset/47953850 .
Thanks,
Andy
12017-04-21 15:01:31 UTCSomeoneElse Can you explain what you mean by "invalid layer tag"?
Layer tags are relative, so "layer=-1" or "layer=-100" isn't any more valid or invalid than "layer=0" or an implied layer=0, if all crossing features have positive layer tags.
What problem are you trying ...
22017-04-22 07:45:23 UTCwongataa I should have put some more detail in. These layer tags were not used in conjunction with any other tags such as bridge or tunnel. The features in question could also be clearly seen at surface level on the satellite imagery and were tagged as layer -1. The layer tags were applied in error as the...
32017-04-22 08:43:38 UTCSomeoneElse Again, to be clear, _layer tags are relative_. Layer 0 does _not_ imply ground level.
Again, what _actual problem_ are you trying to solve?
42017-04-22 16:30:10 UTCtrigpoint There are more changes here than your stated incorrect layer.
You have also changed oneway=-1 to oneway=yes on way 204098940 thus reversing the direction of travel for that section
12017-04-21 14:32:59 UTCtrigpoint Hi, please can you point me to where this mechanical edit was discussed?
You seem to have mechanically armchaired layer=1 onto bridges with no survey, if you had you would have seen that the bridge should be at layer=0 and maybe whatever is below them needs a later=-1 where it is below ground level...
22017-04-22 07:51:54 UTCwongataa All bridges need a layer tag of 1 or higher. This is detailed in the OSM wiki on the bridge page. It doesn't matter if the bridge is a simple plank or not. It is above ground level.

In that mapillary link the bridge needs a layer tag as it crosses a river/canal. The layer is to show where a f...
32017-04-22 08:38:35 UTCSomeoneElse Firstly - please take the wiki with a bucketload of salt :)
Secondly - layer=0 doesn't imply ground level - layer tags are relative, so "All bridges need a layer tag of 1 or higher" is simply wrong.
Also, although it is possible to infer relative level from imagery and other sources, i...
12017-04-21 13:42:09 UTCSomeoneElse Hello,
Please don't add test data to the live OpenStreetMap Server. If you want a test server, perhaps https://master.apis.dev.openstreetmap.org/ would work for you?

22017-04-21 18:47:10 UTClequack Yes apologies for that Andy. It was a mistake, can I revert those additions?
32017-04-21 18:56:31 UTCSomeoneElse It's OK; I've reverted them.
Thanks,
Andy
12017-04-21 16:10:25 UTCSomeoneElse Hello,
In this changeset you've changed the name of this place from the Armenian name to to an anglicized version of the the Azerbaijani name.
Your changeset comment "Something wrong explained" unfortunately does not explain what the problem was and why you changed it.
Could you explain...
12017-04-21 13:31:34 UTCSomeoneElse Oops - you've added this one-node building in the middle of the Atlantic at latitude 0, longitude 0. I guess that this means that OsmAnd didn't have a valid location when you added it?
Best Regards,
Andy
12017-03-14 18:37:04 UTCSomeoneElse Hi Brian,
You're still not using a separate import account, you're using a #gibberish changeset discussion comment and you're importing duplicates of existing data rather than conflating (e.g. https://www.openstreetmap.org/node/4734765468 and https://www.openstreetmap.org/node/4149470376).
Are you...
22017-04-17 09:39:40 UTCbrianboru I don't believe these are duplicate nodes but bus stops on opposite sides of the road, so conflation not appropriate. Duplicates are being reviewed manually to check which position is accurate
I'm using my own account only to do a manual post-import review and cleanup of nodes. Not as neat as pur...

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.

This is accidental, It might have deleted when I was reverting this changeset https://www.openstreetmap.org/changeset/47788862?node_page=2 , which has null island edits . Could you please bring back the buoy edits.

12017-03-21 11:14:11 UTCimagico Hello Eva,

your edits claims to be based on Bing imagery but Bing apparently has no coverage in this area. Could you explain the basis of this edit?
22017-03-21 21:33:01 UTCEva Blue Hi imagico, I figured that even without imagery I could make some improvements to the shoreline if there are sharp angles that are unreasonable for a shoreline. However you bring up a good point and I will avoid editing when no resources are available. Thank you.
32017-04-19 09:30:36 UTCSomeoneElse Hi Eva,
Please don't update OSM based on guesswork!
Best Regards,
Andy
12017-03-28 21:50:36 UTCwoodpeck You have aligned this one island with Bing imagery, but the three nearby islands were horribly out of sync with imagery and you haven't even made an attempt to repair them too. Why the focus on this one island? Have you made this edit as part of a MapRoulette task, and if yes, have you been instruct...
22017-03-30 02:43:25 UTCJames Millar I found this island through a MapRoulette challenge, I’m part of a small group who are attempting to improve the alignment of these islands using MapRoulette and JOSM.
32017-04-18 10:15:59 UTCSomeoneElse Hi James.
There have been worrying changes such as this elsewhere; you simply can't rely on Bing imagery where it might be offset (which is anywhere that you don't have something else to corroborate it).
Can you explain who the "small group" are?
Your profile doesn't say anything abou...
42017-04-19 02:09:13 UTCJames Millar Hi Andy,
We also use Mapbox, and by using a combination we can usually make improvements to these islands regardless of potential Bing offset. Alternatively we make the decision to not make any edits in an area (we do this often). Can you point me to some of the worrying changes? I can always fix t...
52017-04-19 07:58:14 UTCSomeoneElse Re "worrying changes", you can see a discussion with comments at http://www.openstreetmap.org/user/imagico/diary/40759 .
Also, you're saying "we" again. Who exactly are "we"?
Best Regards,
Andy
12017-04-18 10:17:22 UTCSomeoneElse Hi James, as per the comment on https://www.openstreetmap.org/changeset/47114137 can you explain how you know the alignment is correct here? Can you describe what you did to check it?

32017-04-19 07:51:24 UTCSomeoneElse Hi James,
Unfortunately "looks better" doesn't always mean "is better" - if it's in the wrong place, it's still wrong, like Monty Python's parrot with the "beautiful plumage" is still dead.
In this case there don't seem to be any local GPS traces (even on the nearby h...
12017-04-18 11:57:34 UTCSomeoneElse Hello,
As explained previously (see https://www.openstreetmap.org/changeset/44699065 ) Bing imagery may be out of date or offset. Can you explain what steps that you took here and in your other changesets in order ensure that this was not a problem?
Best Regards,

12017-04-18 11:53:50 UTCSomeoneElse Hi,
A month ago someone mentioned that Bing imagery might be offset (see https://www.openstreetmap.org/changeset/46862647#map=15/60.5123/28.6651&layers=N ). Can you explain what you're doing here to avoid problems caused by offset imagery?
Best Regards,

22017-04-19 04:56:29 UTCJason Roy Hey Andy,

Before this changeset, this island was traced badly. There were jagged edges which do not reflect reality. The changes I made were minor but do improve the outline as seen in achavi here:

12017-04-17 21:04:07 UTCSomeoneElse Whilst can be contentious mapping temporary closures in OSM, I guess that 6 weeks of remaining closure is enough to make it worthwhile mapping it.

If you have to save in an emergency and aren't able to leave a suitable comment, you could always return to the changeset later and add a comment in the changeset discussion. That way other mappers will still be able to see what the changeset was about.

22017-04-14 10:21:36 UTCYorvik Prestigitator Hmm, that edit was 3 years ago, perhaps it was signed "access only", but since St A'gate (and surrounding streets) is effectively a dead-end for motor vehicles, that sems unecesssary. I will have another survey this week.

22017-03-13 22:54:28 UTCSomeoneElse Hi Brian,
It looks like things may have got a bit ahead of themselves here.
The only list discussion that I can see for this is at https://lists.openstreetmap.org/pipermail/talk-gb-westmidlands/2017-March/002127.html , and that's not really a discussion as much as you saying "I'd like to imp...
32017-03-19 15:15:59 UTCpigsonthewing Other issues are already being discussed elsewhere, but "Betula sp" (strictly, with italicised "Betula" and period in "sp.") is the correct taxonomic designation for a specimen of the genus Betula, whose exact species is not known.

42017-03-19 17:17:34 UTCSK53 @pigsonthewing: there is also a widely used genus tag, which is particularly appropriate for trees not identified to species (and generally useful because of the vagaries of the taxonomy of various street trees).
12017-03-13 22:20:31 UTCSomeoneElse Hello and welcome to OpenStreetMap!
What are you actually trying to do here?
You might find something like http://umap.openstreetmap.fr/en/ more appropriate for whatever it is.

22017-03-13 22:23:33 UTCchillly This follows a pattern. Whoever is coordinating this would be best to talk to someone in OSM (by adding a comment here or sending a direct message to me). These edits are likely to be deleted, they are not useful in OSM, so this work will be lost.
12017-03-13 22:02:13 UTCchillly Welcome to OSM

This is the second edit this evening adding a very strange plateau in this locality. Is this part of a course or a some other related group?

This really does not look valid for the area. I think both edits are likely to be removed.
22017-03-13 22:06:42 UTCSomeoneElse Unlike the other one, there probably is a bit of moraine under here (it's a raised bit west of the Rother and the clue's in the nae "Stonegravels") but ir's doesn't really belong in OSM as it stands.

What is this edit all about? Did you realise that you were saving to the live database? You seem to have a very odd group of tags and names for an urban part of UK.

Do you need some help with this edit? I can remove it for you if that is what is needed.
22017-03-13 21:56:13 UTCSomeoneElse It's not much of a plateau certainly - St Augustine's Road is very much a hill with the river at the eastern end of it, and the road that drops down to Queen's Park is likewise.
What exactly is it supposed to be?

12017-03-12 22:00:10 UTCSomeoneElse Relation 7066589 has 37,948 nodes as members. It's just broken an osm2pgsql import here, and I suspect I wont be the only one.

What is it actually supposed to be?
22017-03-12 22:18:07 UTCwoodpeck I have also noticed that this import seems to have first been raised on talk-br on March 9, two days before the import was started. Problems like a collection relation with 37k members would have been found before the import if people had actually had time to look at what was proposed.
32017-03-12 22:21:56 UTCwoodpeck The survey points seem to contain this message: "Não alterar: coordenadas originais do IBGE". I wonder why they are imported in OSM at all; what use is data that you cannot alter in OSM? Anyone interested in doing anything with the survey points can just use the shape file.
42017-03-12 22:24:37 UTCpnorman Hello,

Imports in OSM are subject to some requirements (https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Import/Guidelines), one of which the community is consulted prior to the import, including the imports@ mailing list.

Because this import is causing technical problems and has not been discussed, I'm go...
52017-03-12 22:29:36 UTCsmaprs Ok, if you think its' better to revert it. We discussed it in Brazilian community thinking these survey points have precise coordinates and can help align imagery in remote regions of Brazil. I'll read carefully your remarks and see what can be done better.
62017-03-12 22:39:38 UTCwoodpeck I have looked that the Bing imagery surrounding some of the points and found nothing visible on the ground that I could have used to align the image though. I think the matter deserves a more thorough discussion. We'll revert it for now but that doesn't mean it can never come back.
72017-03-12 22:51:03 UTCsmaprs Ok. Sorry for the unexpected problems.

12017-03-09 17:08:02 UTCGinaroZ Hi, welcome to OSM. Just wondering why you have changed these from gardens to parks?
22017-03-09 17:41:21 UTCElfangorax These two locations -- particularly Gardner's Crescent -- could equally be considered gardens and parks. I changed them to parks because I believe Pokémon Go uses named parks to assign nests in the game. I'm not sure whether it's possible to classify them as both, but would be happy to do so ...
32017-03-09 23:02:22 UTCGinaroZ They can only be tagged as one or the other. Parks are usually larger, and "Exchange Park" was tagged as a private garden - so hardly a park!
Finally, you should not be changing OSM data just so it creates nests in Pokemon Go.
42017-03-10 11:54:44 UTCSomeoneElse I was there only the other week, and what is now called "Exchange Park" didn't look anything like a park to me :(
52017-03-10 22:57:34 UTCGinaroZ I've reverted these back to gardens

If the terms & conditions are the same as stated in http://opendata.go.tz/en/pages/kanuni-na-masharti , 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.

12017-02-24 14:04:06 UTCSomeoneElse Is the WMCA really "admin level 6"? I thought that it just an attempt to obtain some "City Region" government money, and didn't have any of the administrative powers (beyond running the buses) that e.g. Birmingham City Council did?

22017-01-18 18:25:25 UTCBCNorwich Two areas tagged as grass that are actually 90, 95% not grass but highway surface, are removed. Grass area was a narrow verge. Each area was also mapped with self intersection.

One area remapped to remove self intersection of area outline, create areas without any self intersection, now mapped pr...
32017-01-20 00:33:29 UTCSomeoneElse Based on the last time I was in the area (last year) I don't think there's anything like this amount of "meadow" here. You could maybe make a claim for the bit by the cricket pitch, but it'd be a stretch.
42017-02-09 23:50:00 UTCSomeoneElse This was so wrong based on my recollection of the area that I've reverted it (but also tried to incorporate future changes that seemed plausible, e.g. that the main street in Milton is lit).
12017-02-09 23:40:21 UTCSomeoneElse The node that you added as https://www.openstreetmap.org/node/3989393999 was already mapped (and spelt correctly) as https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/242753178 .
12017-02-09 23:05:17 UTCSomeoneElse You've changed http://www.openstreetmap.org/way/4967734/history from highway=unclassified to highway=minor. What sort of road is that supposed to be?
12017-02-09 21:48:07 UTCSomeoneElse Hello,
You've changed http://www.openstreetmap.org/way/343529096/history from being not lit to being lit. Are you sure about this, and are you sure that the bit the the east is still not lit?
Things might have changed since I was last there of course, it was a couple of years ago.
When did you...
12017-02-06 23:30:19 UTCLeTopographeFou See also https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Automated_edits/LeTopographeFou#.23004_-_Typos

Thinking afterwards, this edit may have been too agressive... I hope it will not be perceived this way.
22017-02-09 21:00:45 UTCSomeoneElse I wouldn't say "aggressive", but I would say "irrelevant" - anything that parses mph speed limits is going to parse "30mph".
Also, this change is making the tidying up of some earlier problem edits much, much harder.
32017-02-09 23:21:52 UTCLeTopographeFou Yes I agree with your second sentence to better answer your first point: "30 mph" is different from "30mph" exactly because parsing (and regular expressions) can't save everyone, everywhere and everytime. This is why this is relevant at the end. Having a consistent data set helps...
42017-02-12 14:15:12 UTCSK53 The idea that by editing tags to some kind of common format will somehow make it easier for data consumers is a pernicious fallacy.

Any use of a speed limit with or without "mph" in the tag will require some form of parsing, error detection and data wrangling. For instance the 11th com...
12017-02-09 10:20:48 UTCSomeoneElse Hi Bernard,

Did you even look at the underlying features that you made changes to here?

22017-02-09 11:37:57 UTCBCNorwich I have reverted the changeset. My apologies for not having any idea what you were doing.
12017-02-07 01:04:15 UTCSomeoneElse Hi lewismv2002,
Please don't add imaginery things like https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/471442533 to OpenStreetMap. I'll remove that - please don't add more things like it.
Best Regards,
Andy Townsend, on behalf of OpenStreetMap's Data Working Group.
12016-12-20 00:16:57 UTCSomeoneElse Hello,
You've merged together various "estate_agents", "estate_agency" etc. in here. I can see the logic in this, except that you've ignored the main tag of "shop" or "office" and made them all "office". I've certainly used both "shop" ...
22017-02-06 23:37:00 UTCLeTopographeFou Hi SomeoneElse,
Yes I see your point and I've followed a little bit the comments about shop vs office for this kind of business. What do you propose? I'm afraid that I will not be able to make the difference between those two as I'm not from England and can't check by myself.
32017-02-07 00:17:47 UTCSomeoneElse > What do you propose?
I'd change the ones that were shop previously (like http://www.openstreetmap.org/way/351521115/history ) back to shop, and if any of them had other tags that were changed into "office" at the same time, I'd change those back too.
42017-02-10 18:41:43 UTCLeTopographeFou Done, all previously tagged shops have been redefined as shop. See https://www.openstreetmap.org/changeset/45980978

22017-02-02 12:10:49 UTCSK53 Yes, I plan to merge them in JOSM too tedious to do in PL2!
32017-02-02 12:12:36 UTCSK53 Now done
12017-02-02 11:45:43 UTCSomeoneElse Would it be possible to provide some information about what the actual change was here?
12017-02-02 11:40:28 UTCSomeoneElse Hi,
Are you sure that https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/468372827 is actually a "sidewalk"? Also what were the changes in Mansfield in this change? The "duplicate node" that was removed appears to be in Skegness.

22017-02-02 11:00:11 UTCSomeoneElse Oh, and please do use meaningful changeset comments.
"remove self intersection of area outline" will be meaningless to 99% of OSMers.
32017-02-02 11:09:20 UTCSomeoneElse Also, you seem to have actually deleted the school area https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/449579231/history in this changeset. Any reason you couldn't just restore it rather than dobbing the tags onto a building https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/471363752 ? See e.g. http://overpass-turbo.eu/s/lF3 ...
12017-02-02 00:32:14 UTCSomeoneElse Oops,

The changeset source for http://www.openstreetmap.org/changeset/42721909 is "Geoportal 2: Ortofotomapa (zdjęcia lotnicze),googlemaps". I explained the problem on there and said "If you have any questions please email the Data Working Group on data@osmfoundation.org "...
32017-02-01 22:07:36 UTCTeiron Would that be possible for me to go through those changes, discern which violates Google's ToS and re-add not copied parts?
Some of those were realy valuable.
42017-02-01 22:36:08 UTCSomeoneElse Where we have been able to have the conversation with the author of the changeset we have sometimes been able to do investigation on a sub-changeset level, but in this case I'd be tempted to just remap based on allowable data sources - it'll probably be quicker than going through the previous edits ...
12017-01-30 19:27:56 UTCSomeoneElse I've also changed a nearby TIGER-derived bridge to be the tunnel that both Bing and Mapbox aerial imagery suggest that it is. There's still _lots_ more to map around here though.

12017-01-29 22:38:14 UTCSomeoneElse I've changed this back. Clearly the Megabus doesn't stop in the library - it wouldn't fit through the door.
12017-01-29 21:10:56 UTCSomeoneElse Erm - http://www.openstreetmap.org/way/426558838 is the "House of Wally" in South Sudan (with Wally's Pond just to the west). Are you sure about that?
Also http://www.openstreetmap.org/way/468507905 is "-2 metres wide" which doesn't make a lot of sense.

why have you changed the "ref=A CT-SR" from Autostrada Catania-Siracusa to "ref=A01"?
There is no "A01" in Italy.

32016-12-10 23:53:31 UTCluschi for me this looks like a not official number from ANAS.
The immage from mapillary is from August 2016 and the pdf from your link is from 2015(only this pdf use A01 for this motorway).
Also is to check, if you have the license to import data from ANAS website to OSM!
42016-12-11 14:32:17 UTCfayor Basta una semplice ricerca per verificare che il ref "A01", anche se non riportato nei cartelli, identifica questo tratto autostradale, seppure, ritengo, provvisoriamente.

62016-12-24 17:41:24 UTCSomeoneElse Hi fayor,
Looking at the changes here, it looks like signage for "aut.CT-SC" definitely appears. Do you have evidence that signage for A01 appears anywhere? Wikipedia (though not directly usable as a source) claims it has no number: https://it.wikipedia.org/wiki/Autostrada_Catania-Sirac...
72016-12-26 14:51:33 UTCfayor Il numero che identifica quest'autostrada, da indicare in "ref", inizialmente era NSA339; attualmente l'Anas, che gestisce la tratta, nei propri comunicati si riferisce alla Catania-Siracusa con il codice alfanumerico A01, simile a quello delle altre autostrade italiane. "A CT-SR"...
82016-12-27 10:13:23 UTCSomeoneElse The most-used tag for references that you can't use for navigation because they don't appear on signs is "official_ref" http://taginfo.openstreetmap.org.uk/keys/official_ref . There's some usage of that further north in Italy (see http://overpass-turbo.eu/s/kSK ). There will always be ed...
92016-12-30 15:30:10 UTCluschi I dont think that the ref=A01 is correct, because in Italy existing a A1 and this bring a lot of conflicts. A01 and A1 sounds similar because I think not all will say "A zero uno" or "A zero one" The A1 go from Milano down to Napoli. and if there existing a other motorway with a ...
102017-01-08 17:19:57 UTCSomeoneElse So no other evidence for "ref=A01" then? If not, I'll change it to "official_ref" in a bit.
Best Regards,
Andy

122017-01-10 13:50:12 UTCSomeoneElse @fayor I don't see any evidence of signage there :)
Also note that "Creative Commons Attribution 4.0" on its own is not compatible with OSM's ODBL licence.
132017-01-17 00:37:46 UTCSomeoneElse In the absence of photographic evidence for A01, or other licence-compatible evidence, I've changed it back to as it was immediately before http://www.openstreetmap.org/changeset/44335349 . Whether "aut.CT-SC" is really a ref at all is a different issue...
Thanks for everyone's patience,...

42017-01-17 13:34:52 UTCSK53 type=* anything should be avoided as type really should be reserved for relations. I would agree with either of survey_point or survey_point:type as being suitable values.

82017-01-20 03:39:27 UTCPeter Fowler OK. My map does not appear to have the spot height. The green Pathfinder 896 has metric contours and a spot height of 150 and the Orange Explorer 15 is identical.

I have never previously seen that map, and I agree that the land rises quite steeply from the Uppingham Road. This triangulation pillar does not seem to be shown. Had it been erected? The OS claim that their "leveling" dates from 1963. Perhaps the contour lines on the 1937-61...

12017-01-15 11:30:30 UTCSomeoneElse Hello mahahahaneapneap,
Just stumbled across this changeset while uploading some changes around Scalford.
Would it be possible in future to use more meaningful changeset comments? "." doesn't really explain what you did and based on what.
http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Good_changes...
12017-01-10 23:48:16 UTCPolarbear What does 'invented' mean here? Does the bridge exist, and you estimated the outline to the best of your knowledge; or is the bridge fictive for testing purposes?

If the former, fine, just tune your changeset description. If the latter, please don't add fictive test features to the database.
22017-01-11 14:19:09 UTCmesspert This rather provocative comment was my protest against being *forced* to use a man_made bridge outline when I have already mapped this bridge properly.

This is what I regard as a major bug in standard rendering for abandoned railways. A bridge is still a bridge and should be rendered as such, irr...
32017-01-12 16:33:50 UTCSomeoneElse I'm sure that there are other map styles that render significant features such as abandoned railways; https://github.com/SomeoneElseOSM/openstreetmap-carto-AJT is one, but there are presumably more.

52017-01-13 14:01:34 UTCSomeoneElse I'd certainly agree that it would make sense to render abandoned railways such as this one that are still major features on the ground on any map that tries to represent what's visible locally.

I'm not sure about "local councillors ... could not be expected to do other than look at the "...
62017-01-13 17:57:46 UTCPolarbear It were not the bridges that had been mapped for years, it were the abandoned rail tracks that are carrying the bridge attribute.

man_made=bridge is for mapping bridges. It was introduced to OSM (later than the bridge=yes attribute) exactly to solve your problem (among others).
72017-01-13 19:00:10 UTCmesspert Well, I know this is the party line. But it doesn't seem to apply on ordinary roads, for example. And if it is to supercede the bridge tag, then why can it not be applied to ways? Trying to micro map every bridge depends on having very high quality gps or perhaps imagery.

I have a pretty good gps...
82017-01-13 21:02:00 UTCPolarbear There is no superseding. bridge=yes is still required on the way across the bridge.
man_made=bridge is supposed to map the outline, so by definition it is an area.
It is the fate of an OSM mapper that the job is sometimes easy and sometimes very hard.

92017-01-14 15:56:05 UTCmesspert We are going around in circles here. It is precisely because I want an accurate correct database, that I made the provocative comment.

32017-01-13 22:42:01 UTCSomeoneElse There's a fair amount of overuse of "isolated_dwelling" in the UK (possibly because the standard style renders it, and used to render it more prominently than it did now).

If ...
52017-01-14 20:51:35 UTCSK53 Strongly agree with @SomeoneElse. The place=isolated_dwelling tag is almost always a mistake in Britain.

92016-11-23 18:41:39 UTCSomeoneElse @manoharuss - looks like talk-lk is mostly adverts for events, so I guess no reply there is not surprising. Maybe trying contacting individual mappers locally to see if they can validate or invalidate any of the locations?

152016-12-23 19:17:03 UTCSomeoneElse I'd be tempted to do a revert then - it seems unlikely to me that http://www.openstreetmap.org/node/4381518393 is an ATM.
Presumably you're OK with doing a revert here? If not, let me know and I'll do it.
162017-01-09 15:06:43 UTCSomeoneElse Interestingly, they've edited again - http://www.openstreetmap.org/changeset/45015124 . Does that look plausible?
172017-01-10 06:06:23 UTCmanoharuss @SomeoneElse from Satellite imagery, this seems like a residential area. Seems betting and bookmaking is a legal, regulated business in Sri Lanka. There is no way to verify this mapped object by the user. From the given name tag, this could also be a personal bookmark.

Just noticed that you've moved https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/286801689 to south of its actual position. You can see that the Bing imagery is offset here (look at the east-west GPS traces). Also, when you edit things, please take more care about where you move features to - in this case...
22017-01-07 14:59:12 UTCphilipcullen I think you’re right about the imagery offset. I’ve moved a few points in the immediate vicinity that were aligned with no offset to Bing, including the service road you added opposite, so that they are all offset, rather than being half and half. Hopefully it is now consistent again.

Več na https://www.openstreetmap.org/user_blocks/1130 sem te prosil, da odgovori, kjer so ljudje si vprašanja v seznam sprememb, razprave in uporabo smiselnih seznam sprememb pripombe. "C" na ta seznam sprememb, ni smiseln kome...
12017-01-01 21:06:08 UTCSomeoneElse Hello,
You've changed the landuse on https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/291482742/history from "police" to "grass". When I was last here it was a Police dog-training facility; is it no longer used for that? If so, then "landuse=grass" doesn't really make sense as it's...
12016-12-30 19:11:20 UTCSomeoneElse Is https://www.openstreetmap.org/node/387456504/history definitely not called the Colwick Park any more? Most Toby Carveries do have a name somewhere, even if the Toby branding is more prominent.
22016-12-30 19:58:24 UTCsandysau Yes you're right It should be changed back to the Colwick park. I did the changes whilst I was on the bus in the dark, but having looked again in daylight the Toby brand is more prominent but Colwick park it is.
32016-12-30 21:05:53 UTCSomeoneElse Great - thanks for confirming.
12016-12-30 19:26:53 UTCSomeoneElse Is https://www.openstreetmap.org/node/4568639094#map=20/51.49884/-0.16572&layers=H really a separate restaurant or perhaps a duplicate of the bistro next door?
12016-12-30 19:25:43 UTCSomeoneElse Hello,
Please don't add the Arabic for "cafe" as a "name" to places such as https://www.openstreetmap.org/node/4568623592 . If it has an Arabic name then by all means add it; but if it doesn't, please don't.
Also - is it perhaps a duplicate of the "Carpo" next door?\...
12016-12-30 19:22:04 UTCSomeoneElse You've added Kristina records https://www.openstreetmap.org/node/4567394789 as a toyshop here. Is it really that or is it a record shop?
12016-12-30 19:20:44 UTCSomeoneElse You've added Flashback Records https://www.openstreetmap.org/node/4567348592 as a convenience store here . Is it really that or is it a record shop?
12016-12-30 19:19:15 UTCSomeoneElse I don't think that https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/95894683 is really called "Autogril con wifi". Were you trying to map something else here?
12016-12-30 19:17:59 UTCSomeoneElse Is the pub really separate to the "Inn at Ardgour"? Does it have a different name?
22016-12-31 17:29:52 UTCtrigpoint They were one and the same place when I was there a few years ago
12016-12-30 19:16:03 UTCSomeoneElse Hello,
https://www.openstreetmap.org/node/2917982861 now has conflicting names - you'll need to use a proper editor (not MAPS.ME) to change it. If it's a Byron Burger I'm guessing that the cuisine is no longer Spanish also?
12016-12-30 19:01:37 UTCSomeoneElse Any reason why you added an English name of "test" to http://www.openstreetmap.org/node/2242754314 ?
Best Regards,

12016-12-30 18:32:19 UTCSomeoneElse Hello,

12016-11-27 19:36:50 UTCpitscheplatsch Hi cartagena68, welcome to the OpenStreetMap project. May I know the reason behind deleting several highways in this changeset. See http://overpass-api.de/achavi/?changeset=43988405
22016-12-29 19:53:14 UTCSomeoneElse Hi @pitscheplatsch - any news on this one? Does it need reverting?
32016-12-30 17:35:12 UTCpitscheplatsch @SomeoneElse no news here. I think we/you should revert it.
42016-12-30 18:13:18 UTCSomeoneElse @pitscheplatsch - I've checked a few of these and the deletions actually look OK - there's been a "delete / redraw" process when adding roundabout flares, for example.
12016-12-16 16:09:35 UTCpitscheplatsch Hi Daniel Gamboa Alvarez, welcome to OSM. May I know the reason behind deleting many POIs in this changeset. See http://overpass-api.de/achavi/?changeset=44432049
22016-12-29 21:23:24 UTCSomeoneElse @pitscheplatsch does this need reverting? It looks like it might be a "I think I'm editing my own personal map" type of problem.
32016-12-30 17:35:59 UTCpitscheplatsch @SomeoneElse same here, no answer. I think we/you should revert it.
42016-12-30 18:04:01 UTCSomeoneElse OK, done.
12016-12-29 21:34:49 UTCSomeoneElse Hi,
I was tidying up after a new user who'd made a few unfortunate edits, and came across https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/69886258 , which dates from rather earlier :)
It's mapped as "layer=1; tunnel=yes" - is that because it's in the air but covered?
Just check it wasn't accidental.\...
22017-01-09 14:44:58 UTCrandomjunk Yeah, it was deliberate :-)
The tunnel is basically a pedestrian bridge over the road and pavements integrated into a building.
32017-01-09 16:00:59 UTCDaveF As it's above ground level, would covered=yes be more appropriate than tunnel?
42017-01-09 17:34:23 UTCrandomjunk As I remember it it's not really "open on one side", and just a passage through the building with a very subway-tunnel-like feel. Don't think I've actually used in in the last 6 years though so I may be misremembering.
52017-01-09 17:42:19 UTCDaveF Ah, I've never really agreed with the 'has to be open at the sides' argument, but as an alternative, how about tunnel=building_passage (72 711 occurrences)
12016-10-26 03:47:47 UTCnammala Hi Yulia_Car,

Thanks for contributing to OpenStreetMap. May I know the reason behind deleting `natural=wood`.

12016-11-29 10:19:15 UTCSomeoneElse Is there really a postbox called "Kimberly Clark" here? Kimberly-Clark is the company that makes toilet paper; what exactly are you suggesting that people put in this post box?

32016-12-29 19:54:14 UTCSomeoneElse Thanks.

12016-12-27 18:12:37 UTCchillly Welcome to OSM

When I see your first edit deleting stuff with comment of deleting excessive detail, this is worrying. OSM wants MORE detail not less. Why have you deleted stuff like this?
22016-12-27 18:19:21 UTCchillly Looking at this more closely I have reverted this edit. There is no way all this should be deleted.
32016-12-27 18:47:04 UTCBCNorwich Just wanted to add support to the decision to revert this changeset. It's very easy to make mistakes when you first jump into OSM mapping, I'm sure freefromsociety can make positive contributions. Just takes little research as to best practices first.
42016-12-28 09:27:31 UTCSomeoneElse Whilst it might make sense to restore some of this detail, I'm a bit sceptical about others - I doubt that
https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/385445828 is any sort of "pedestrian area", for example.
52016-12-28 14:04:24 UTCtrigpoint Also, whilst not part of this changeset. The A16 is incorrectly mapped as a dual carriageway. This could use a tidy up.
12016-12-20 17:07:37 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM. What is actually here, is it a building or simply a signpost.
I imagine that you have made a typo and it is spelt Centre rather than the American way?
Cheers Phil
22016-12-20 18:09:36 UTCSomeoneElse I'm guessing that it's a duplicate of https://www.openstreetmap.org/node/410268974 , actually.
32016-12-22 21:38:05 UTCvbth Hi, the place might be right but the name was only Cymraeg for village Hall. Also it was not visioble on the (offline) map. therefore i set an named it. Just give it a "i"-button an name it "Myddfai Community Hall & Visitor Centre". thanks.

http://www.myddfai.org/
42016-12-27 10:55:17 UTCSomeoneElse @vbth I wouldn't worry too much about what any particular map does or doesn't show, since they all show different things. I've tried to merge everything together and added a building in https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/462068160 .

22016-11-25 17:10:12 UTCSomeoneElse Hi Manohar,

62016-12-23 20:21:18 UTCSomeoneElse The usual stuff to try now would be to try and find a local mapper forum, or even just a local mapper, and consider an Arabic translation of any message. If that fails, I'd just revert it - on the balance of probability they're just personal markers.

Andy from the Data Working Group here
A quick question (prompted by another mapper) about http://osm.mapki.com/history/way.php?id=138891352 . As can be seen, you've added a bunch of new tags on there such as "bicycle=yes", lanes=2" and "oneway=no". I know that this w...

12015-07-04 17:31:45 UTCDaveF Hi Snake Skin

There's an expression in OSM: 'Don't tag incorrectly to suit the renderer'.

For accuracyIf a KG is a KG then it should be tagged as such. If you wish an item to be visible in a specific render you should contact the person creating the tiles.

Cheers
Dave F.
22015-07-07 17:06:52 UTCSnake Sting Why don't kissing gates or stiles show up on OSM? What I mean is when you zoom right it will tell you if you hover the mouse over the node but not as a symbol on the map like gates.

32015-08-13 10:03:16 UTCDaveF Sorry for the delayed reply.
OSM is a database. Lot's of different rendering are mad from this one source. It allows map creators to add relevent data & ignore what the don't want.

52015-08-17 16:47:15 UTCSomeoneElse Looks like geocaching.com (if that's what you're talking about) offer lots of different background styles, but don't host any themselves, so you'd just have to lobby for one of those to support it; not necessarily openstreetmap-carto.
62016-12-17 21:02:40 UTCSomeoneElse Just for info, I've just added a separate "kissing_gate" icon to https://github.com/SomeoneElseOSM/openstreetmap-carto-AJT (that's a style that other people can use if they want to).

72016-12-20 16:53:37 UTCtrigpoint Not really a comment on the mapping, or the rendering, but if a PROW has stiles or kissing gates then it is a public footpath. You should not be taking a bike on such paths.
82016-12-20 17:06:25 UTCDaveF There's nothing to prevent someone pushing a bike; although a few walkers have disagreed with me.
12016-12-17 10:58:07 UTCtrigpoint Please do not add spam to name tags or change the name of bus stops away from their official name. I am removing these tags.
22016-12-17 19:00:40 UTCSomeoneElse Actually, I'd suggest adding a "real_ale" tag, like here https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/354421040 .
You won't be able to do this from MAPS.ME, but you will from the web-based editors at openstreetmap.org.

32016-12-14 20:21:39 UTCpitscheplatsch @SomeoneElse Yes, I think so. I didn't revert anything.

22016-12-15 06:31:34 UTCDinamik Hi!
If I remember correctly, the deleted relation was a duplicate of relation of the same object, which was created earlier. You wrote by yourself, that there were two South Ossetia relations.
32016-12-16 19:37:46 UTCSomeoneElse Hi Dinamik,
Thanks for the reply above. Someone's restored the admin_level=3 South Ossetia http://www.openstreetmap.org/relation/1152717 , so things are back to a previous situation now I think.

12016-12-16 16:06:06 UTCSomeoneElse Oops, looks like the bounding box here became a bit large by accident :)
12016-12-16 16:04:34 UTCSomeoneElse It would be really helpful here if the bounding box for two changes didn't include about a quarter of the planet. That way local mappers can see what has been affected near them.

22016-11-18 02:13:05 UTCSomeoneElse Likewise http://www.openstreetmap.org/relation/957520 and http://www.openstreetmap.org/relation/957519 have been assigned the same wikidata ID. In this case should they perhaps share one relation that has the same wikidata ID?
32016-11-18 03:06:28 UTCnyuriks SomeoneElse, thanks, good catch. I'm trying to get the Wikipedia and Wikidata tags in sync. Seems that the Wikipedia tag have been set to an identical value on both. I will investigate - maybe only one of them should have it?

I'm confused - the changeset comment says "Setting Peak Rail tags to preserved" yet this changeset changes Peak Rail from railway=preserved to railway=rail? Presumably you've tried to follow what the wiki says at https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:railway=rail , but that's n...

That hasn't updated in a month or so, but in theory should give the present location. However, given that it's drifting around 0,0 it makes as much sense as any just to us...
22016-12-07 11:34:27 UTCglglgl Thanks for the additional info. Maybe we should add this to the node.

122016-12-02 14:54:33 UTCMike Baggaley Looking at Lees Road (way 23111785 and adjoining), the U prefix reference suggests this is a tertiary road, but the highway tag has secondary in it, so either the ref tag or the highway tag is incorrect. Can you please either put a B road ref or change highway to tertiary?

Thanks,

12016-12-01 10:39:25 UTCSomeoneElse Please don't create "worldwide" changesets like this. You've copied data from wikipedia from multiple continents here. Local mappers will have to check all your work, and its much harder for them to do that if a changeset spans most of the globe.

If you look at http://overpass-turbo.eu/s/koF you can see a dog-leg of grass which covers part of the university's sports ground (which presumably is grass, but there's already a football pitch tagged there) amd also Manor Road itself (which presumably is asphalt rather than grass?
12016-10-28 10:19:07 UTCChetan_Gowda Hi Nguyễn Đức Tâm, Welcome to the OpenStreetMap. In this changeset, you have created a lengthy road with bridge. Please be careful while adding the roads or any data.

Sarebbe meglio lasciare i nomi bilingue finché la comunità non decide in merito. Ti lascio link alla discussione e al wiki: http://gis.19327.n8.nabbl...
22016-11-21 18:44:57 UTCSomeoneElse Hello,
I've changed this back in https://www.openstreetmap.org/changeset/43854247 . The reason why was because names in Sardinia had been subject to a "tit for tat" series of changes (which you can see from the high version numbers of the objects in this changeset). In

12016-11-21 16:29:44 UTCSomeoneElse You really will have to fix that bug which causes things to be moved to null island before the negative App Store reviews start rolling in!
22016-11-21 18:34:41 UTCGioalbaF Unfortunately. We have already sent the new version that corrects the errre Apple Store.
Thanks for the tip
32016-11-21 18:37:56 UTCSomeoneElse Thanks for fixing, anyway!

12016-11-21 16:40:59 UTCSomeoneElse Hello,
Please don't add test data to the live OpenStreetMap Server. If you want a test server, perhaps http://api06.dev.openstreetmap.org/ would work for you?
Best Regards,
Andy
12016-11-21 12:46:00 UTCglglgl I am very sure these don't exist at this place, so I revert this changeset.

If these objects exist, but are supposed to be placed somewhere else, please re-create them at the intended place.
22016-11-21 16:39:18 UTCSomeoneElse For info, this is the "learnosm" test data.
What's supposed to happen is that there's a big warning in there to not upload it to OSM. Sometimes, however, that warning gets ignored (understandably - JOSM generates and awful lot of warnings) and the data gets uploaded anyway.
32016-11-21 16:40:17 UTCSomeoneElse The relevant link over at learnosm is https://github.com/hotosm/learnosm/issues/335 .
42016-11-21 18:40:58 UTCD_Arango Sorry, I was doing some editing tests in a course and I uploaded some changes without realizing it
12016-11-21 16:36:12 UTCSomeoneElse This is actually a duplicate of http://www.openstreetmap.org/node/3815077900 .
The wikipedia "null island" link is inappropriate here since that refers to the fictional place, not the an actual PIRATA buoy.

12016-11-21 13:58:21 UTCSomeoneElse By all means add your business to OpenStreetMap (provided it's a real bricks-and-mortar office, not just a web page).
However please add it at the correct location, not in the middle of the road, and don't add spammy "description" information, or spam notes.
12016-11-21 13:21:12 UTCSomeoneElse For info, in Lithuania I'd strongly suggest that you contact the local community, based on a complaint to a previous wikidata-adder in the area:
http://www.openstreetmap.org/changeset/40498313
12016-11-20 13:37:27 UTCSomeoneElse Oops - not sure what happened here, but https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/451599026/history was an exact duplicate of https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/451596760/history - I've deleted one of them.
22016-11-20 13:45:58 UTCSomeoneElse There's a somewhat related issue over at https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/452149130 - there two areas of scrub have exactly adjacent nodes, rather than sharing nodes. Different OSM editors show this in different ways, and you can also see it in external sites such as http://keepright.ipax.at/repor...
12016-11-20 11:47:26 UTCSomeoneElse Actually, I don't remember a caravan site (residential or otherwise) south of the Horse and Groom at http://www.openstreetmap.org/way/453771882 . My guess is that it's just caravan storage.

12016-11-19 14:24:07 UTCSomeoneElse Hello, GioalbaF
What is an "amenity=tourism" supposed to be?
In order to see how statues are mapped, you can use taginfo:
http://taginfo.openstreetmap.org/search?q=statue#values
Best Regards,
Andy
22016-11-19 14:30:44 UTCGioalbaF This is just a viewpoint where you can see all over the town of Sant'Angelo.This is known as "the statue of St. Michael"
Best Regards
32016-11-19 14:33:24 UTCSomeoneElse Thanks - is it actually a statue? If so, I'd map it as a statue (perhaps in addition to the viewpoint).

Note that the tag https://taginfo.openstreetmap.org/tags/amenity=tourism is almost never used - those 37 will be mistakes.

42016-11-19 14:35:16 UTCGioalbaF no it is not a statue was only named by the municipality because the place where will be built a statue
52016-11-19 14:39:12 UTCSomeoneElse Ah - OK. I'd definitely delete the amenity=tourism tag though.
Also - normally things in OSM have capital letters for proper names, so perhaps "Statua di San Michele"?
12016-11-09 08:13:41 UTCYorvik Prestigitator Hi,
Do you have the name of the hotel?
Are you 100% sure of location? It appears to be in the road, rather than in any of the buildings alonside the road
22016-11-19 14:06:03 UTCSomeoneElse @Yorvik Prestigitator I'm guessing this is just a MAPS.ME duplicate of one of the existing hotels here - personally I'd just delete it as the mapper hasn't replied within 10 days.
32016-11-20 11:06:44 UTCYorvik Prestigitator Deleted
12016-11-19 11:59:20 UTCSomeoneElse Before continuing to add wikidata worldwide, may I respectfully suggest you try and address the issues introduced in https://www.openstreetmap.org/changeset/43749373 ?
22016-11-19 12:00:43 UTCSomeoneElse Also it would appear that there hasn't even been a cursory glance given to the data being changed here - the name:en typo in http://www.openstreetmap.org/relation/6607714 would have been obvious if there had have been.
12016-11-18 02:18:01 UTCSomeoneElse Hi,
Thanks for tidying, but any reason you deleted this rather than moving it back to its previous location in Italy?
Cheers,
Andy
22016-11-18 07:48:34 UTCthe_knife Sorry, I didn't see there was a previous location.
32016-11-19 00:32:58 UTCSomeoneElse No problem - I've moved it back by reverting the original "move to null island" changeset. It's now back in Italy: http://www.openstreetmap.org/node/4505868690/history

12016-11-18 14:18:41 UTCSomeoneElse Hello,
You've added a "landuse=forest" tag to http://www.openstreetmap.org/relation/1447414#map=15/47.9626/-120.2074 - is that really correct? The relation is "Okanogan-Wenatchee National Forest" i.e. it's a protected area - a "National Forest" in US terms, but that d...
22016-11-29 19:47:13 UTCCarnildo I don't think it does. Like most national forests, Okanogan-Wenatchee is used for a mix of logging, ranching, mining, hunting, and other things. There are dedicated recreation areas and dedicated wilderness areas, and areas that are de-facto one or the other (generally due to inaccessibility), and...

22016-11-05 07:33:31 UTCPete Bostock Andy, you're quite right, I've realised that there is something of an anomaly in that unless you zoom in to max magnification, the original entries are not visible, I suspect the entry before mine was made for the same reason. I was somewhat surprised that the Sea life centre wasn't listed....!

22016-11-09 13:30:29 UTCSHARCRASH No, it's the same feature, it's supposed to be landuse=meadow. Actually field for pasture and for hay are always entwined and should be considered the same feature with a single element. In reality, farmers alternate this rotation process between pasture and hay (to give the land a rest) on a field ...
32016-11-09 13:43:48 UTCSHARCRASH It was part of this MP http://www.openstreetmap.org/relation/6312533

42016-11-09 14:08:53 UTCSomeoneElse That relation as of 1st November can be viewed at http://overpass-turbo.eu/s/jWT . Can you explain what the two pieces of meadow west of the CR106 have in common with each other, and with the piece to the east, apart from happening to have the same tags?

62016-11-09 12:51:19 UTCSHARCRASH No, i haven't plotted that as a circular track, that's user woodpeck altering and degrading data! I had plotted that element as a MP wood. Something is flawed in the recording process of the history, some edits within MPs are not being recorded.

It would be better to split up the changesets by region: one changeset for London (1 object), one changeset for Valencia (2 objects) and one changeset for Bloemfontein (3 objects). This avoids having a changeset which spreads into regions which are completely unaffected by the chang...
22016-11-04 19:35:55 UTCSomeoneElse Hello - a quick couple of questions about "The West Bourne" hotel http://www.openstreetmap.org/node/4478500491/history - which building is it located in? Currently you've added it in the middle of the road. I'm guessing from the name that you gave it that it's actually inside "51 Gl...

12016-11-04 19:33:13 UTCSomeoneElse Hello,
Just checking that your hotel is the big building at the corner - currently http://www.openstreetmap.org/node/2556790717/history is between the building and the road. I'm sure that guests don't have to curl up on the pavement along Gloucester Terrace :)
Cheers,
Andy

I think that http://www.openstreetmap.org/node/4470335962 is a duplicate? There is an identical one nearby?
12016-11-03 18:36:22 UTCtrigpoint Hi, welcome to OSM.
This edit looks a little odd, the name indicates that these should be bicycle_hire but I am not sure about these. There are others mapped nearby and it is unlikely that such things would be missing from the map. Do you have any more information?
22016-11-04 07:21:27 UTCBCNorwich I don't think 4478909590 exists, but there is a dock round the corner on Greenland Road.
The other two I've tagged similar to other cycle hire stations. If Lui_E98 would like to look at these and use this type of tagging it would concur with how other stations are mapped.
32016-11-04 11:54:44 UTCtrigpoint I am not convinced any exist, discussion on irc suggested that they are personal markers of some sort. Cycle hire is not something our London mappers generally miss.
I was planning to revert, just seeing if I can get a response from the maps.me user.

Node 4478899790 is not listed, there is a bike rental just around the corner.

As you can see from the orange line around this change on the map at the right when you view the changeset on the OpenStreetMap website, it overlaps with the Atlantic because some data was accidentally added there.
