12018-03-07 04:36:43 UTCralley Can you please use proper comments on your changesets - 'S' is not descriptive.

This change appears wrong - you have roads short cutting around the roundabout and going through houses.
12018-03-05 23:48:13 UTCralley I see you've changed the skatepark to be tagged as a playground. As per I believe the previous leisure=pitch was correct

12018-02-27 19:35:26 UTCralley Welcome to OSM and thanks for your edits, they look good to me.

You could look at deleting the previous address node for 18 March Place now that you have put the address on the building. Also you could connect the parking lot to March Place with a service way.

To follow the NZ OSM communi...
12018-01-30 18:21:47 UTCralley Hi, welcome to OSM and thanks for your edits. It looks like the paths you added need a bit of clean up:
1) Some of them appear to be service roads and not paths
2) They are crossing buildings
3) Not connected to the roads
22018-02-17 06:57:28 UTCkiwirick87 they are mostly paths/walking space, but are also used by cars now and again
32018-02-17 07:00:11 UTCralley If they are used by cars then they shouldn't be tagged as paths - they are probably service roads. They definitely should not intersect building and need to be joined to the adjacent roads
12018-02-13 23:49:02 UTCralley Reviewed against LINZ and ESRI imagery and looks good
12018-02-07 09:03:00 UTCConstable hi there, are you sure that playground is the right tag for this area?
Here someone said it was supposed to be a rest area, not a kids play restricted area
Is it actually a playground for kids?
22018-02-08 17:54:16 UTCralley I can confirm there is a playground here, visited in 2017.
32018-02-09 08:02:48 UTCConstable hi there, thanks for the reply. Well, if you've been there few months ago maybe we can give this area a little update. Looking at the aerial imagery it seems like the playground/park area extends far west, am I correct? are there public toilet or some other useful things?
42018-02-26 15:42:00 UTCEmmaJG Hi, I've been away but can confirm there is definitely a playground. I had just visited Ohakune before I made the update.
52018-02-26 16:05:14 UTCConstable hi, thanks for your reply. If you have a look at the aerial imagery you'll see that the playground shape (this one ) doesn't really line up with a playground area. It looks to me like the park/playground extends west along the Mangateitei Stream, am I wron...
12018-01-30 18:15:08 UTCralley These paths look like they should be connected to the nearby roads - as they stand they cannot be used for routing.
22018-01-31 00:50:12 UTCsteakunderscore Thanks @ralley. I wasn't sure if I should do as you say. I didn't want to go and add _all_ the foot paths in the area as that would take a lot of time.
32018-01-31 00:52:51 UTCralley No additional paths needed, just move the end nodes of the existing paths so they are also part of the roads.
42018-01-31 00:57:53 UTCsteakunderscore Thanks. Done in changeset/55913650

12017-12-06 18:55:29 UTCralley Bridges tagged according to following this discussion:!topic/nzopengis/TLcY6KL-tFE
12017-12-05 18:56:38 UTCralley Should this be tagged "covered=yes" ? (as per
22017-12-06 13:31:31 UTCwilmaed I removed surface=grass and added covered=yes.

What about
location=underground ?

32017-12-06 17:30:26 UTCralley I'm definitely no tagging expert but I wouldn't of thought they are needed and there don't seem to be any other examples using that combination of tags.

Seems strange that this is being rendered to look like it is above ground though. Is it to try and not render it that layer was changed to -5...
12017-12-05 10:03:54 UTCralley Hi, welcome to OSM and thanks for your edits. As previously discussed there are some issues with your changesets in this area. Will yoube able to fix up the issues? (Nodes shared between unrelated ways; overlapped buildings with strange shapes; dubious council reserve; Cambrai park has a building...
12017-12-04 23:48:16 UTCralley Are you sure this is a residential road? It looks to be a driveway to me.
12017-12-04 23:43:54 UTCralley Is this really a park? from the ESRI aerial imagery it looks to be a household back yard.
22017-12-06 19:20:46 UTCMonsv Apologies, the park was a test (learning how to use the map) and thought it was unsaved as it didn't show on main. I've removed it.

The P (parking) is private property, Buddhist Temple for members only (I've asked), no public access, big yellow gate
12017-12-03 23:56:09 UTCralley Are you sure about a park being here? The ESRI photo imagery shows residential buildings
12017-10-09 18:34:43 UTCralley Inadvertently combined 2 changesets in JOSM, this also incorporates changes to reflect the extension of Herdman Street, Waterview which is under construction.
12017-09-27 16:49:21 UTCralley Welcome to OSM and thanks for the edits. Strange but correct that the road is Green Lane while the suburb is Greenlane. Well spotted.
12017-09-27 16:42:51 UTCralley Welcome to OSM and thanks for the correction. Looks fine to me.
12017-09-27 16:37:21 UTCralley Hi, thanks for adding the walkway but I don't think this should be tagged as footway=crossing and crossing=zebra (see
12017-09-21 23:59:22 UTCralley My reading of XXX and is that double bridging is actually the correct way to tag. Is my interpretation wrong? OSMose is also flagging this as wrong:
22017-09-22 00:00:20 UTCralley Whoops XXX should have been above.
12017-09-08 01:02:20 UTCralley Correct way to handle a private road would be to add access=private as per
22017-09-08 01:06:45 UTCralley Further looking at this it seems to be a partial duplicate of an existing Abattoir Lane (zoom right in and you can see both). Needs to be cleaned up
12017-08-11 21:19:20 UTCralley Changeset description is wrong - this was scrub not Forest
12017-08-08 19:38:07 UTCralley Comment should have been "Remove tags from outer way of multiploygon"
12017-07-27 13:42:29 UTCwoodpeck Has this import been discussed / documented somewhere?
22017-07-27 17:08:30 UTCViriatoLusitano
32017-07-27 18:27:28 UTCralley LINZ imports were originally discussed staring 17/08/12 on the imports list. The imports have been going on intermittently since this time as tracked through
12017-07-23 07:47:00 UTCralley Arggh, thought I'd re-connected JOSM with my interactive account. This was not an import.
12017-07-07 11:52:19 UTCNakaner Hi ralley,

I recently read about an address import from LINZ but not about an import of rivers. Could you please point me to the discussion of that import and its documentation on the OSM wiki?

The Import Guidelines ( require you to use a d...
22017-07-08 03:58:36 UTCralley Michael, LINZ importing is covered at There is nothing specific to river imports there though. I was not aware of the need for a dedicated account for import, will try and clear that up with the people overseeing the LINZ import.
Cheers, Rob.
