12017-05-18 12:28:30 UTCtoeklk Hi,

These corrections are not corresponding to reality. Due to the (very new) cyclepath, there is only a link between the Kromme Dreef and the cyclepath, and _not_ with the road anymore. And given the altitude difference between the road and the cyclepath, it doesn't look like this is a tempora...
22017-05-18 16:53:05 UTChenke54 OK, but i saw that you did not remove the connection between the road (Naamsesteenweg) and Kromme Dreef, so, i did .
Maybe now it is "actual/correct" ?
32017-05-18 17:56:43 UTCtoeklk Almost, there is now some kind of 'cycleway_link' (as in 'motorway_link') to go from the kromme dreef to the cyclepath which turns north. See

For now, I've left the 'highway=construction', but as I mentioned above, I'm not su...
42017-05-18 18:36:28 UTChenke54 I have in JOSM the most recent airphoto from AGIV, and your "placement" for the crossing seems to be "not exactly correct" ->
52017-05-18 20:31:12 UTCtoeklk I'm pretty sure that nowadays there is _no_ crossing anymore. The crossing that is visible on the imagery is a bicycle crossing place (fietsoversteekplaats), and was only useful before, i.e. as long as the official cycleway was on the other side from the Kromme Dreef on. Now, the whole cycleway is...
12017-05-06 19:40:21 UTCtoeklk Hi, In this changeset you renamed the Kromme Dreef into St-Joris-Weert straat. I've never seen any reference to that name on ground. If you would have googled a little bit, you would see that the name "Kromme Dreef" definitely exists (and is indicated using signs) on ground. Hence, cou...
22017-05-07 09:18:30 UTChenke54 I just followed Geopunt and Cadgis , complain to them ->
32017-05-07 12:01:48 UTCtoeklk No, I shouldn't... You should never just copy information from external sources

If there is existing data in openstreetmap, you should assume that existing data has been mapped by local people on the ground. Sometimes you will be able to tell this by seeing source tags or just by contac...
42017-05-08 11:13:17 UTChenke54 I must admit, that 'Kromme Dreef' is a better name for the street in the forest and at boshuis Het Spoor and Boswachterij De Warande, because that street DOES NOT 'lead to' Sint Joris Weert, and there is already a St-Joris-Weertstraat in Bierbeek,more to the center, 'far away' from that place in the...
52017-05-13 08:08:03 UTCtoeklk Given the above reasoning, I've reverted the part of this changeSet and changed the name back to Kromme Dreef in ChangeSet 48642370
62017-05-13 14:01:38 UTChenke54 Ok, but what is now then the address of boshuis Het Spoor and Boswachterij De Warande ???
72017-05-18 12:19:42 UTChenke54 The "problem" is solved ->

82017-05-18 12:25:37 UTCtoeklk Thx for figuring out!
12017-03-17 22:43:07 UTChenke54 Waarom heb je de naam van dit stuk weg van Aarschotbaan veranderd in Liersesteenweg ?? -> winkel Noordkaap is Aarschotbaan 42 volgens hun website ->
12015-12-08 21:24:19 UTChenke54 [quote]Where a river or stream goes under a road, railway or similar the upper way should be tagged with bridge=yes and layer=1, or [url=]alternatively tag the watercourse with layer=-1[/url] and tunnel=yes or tunnel=culvert (used for streams and drains).[...
22015-12-08 21:29:20 UTCJakka Correct. this waterway was/is tagged over long lenght -1 not correct That was my correction at that point.
32015-12-08 21:37:22 UTChenke54 long length = whole watercourse length ;
so ; "or alternative tag the watercourse with layer = -1 "
42015-12-09 04:50:39 UTCescada I'm not in favour of -1 for the total waterway. This was discussed a long time ago on the tagging mailing list, and the outcome was different from what the wiki page states. Adding bridges or culverts is more precise anyway. The layer tag should only be used when 2 or more ways cross. You do not ta...
52015-12-09 08:56:02 UTChenke54 what are then the disadvantages from tagging the whole watercourse with layer -1 , besides the advantages ??
62015-12-09 09:15:41 UTCJakka See:
12015-12-08 21:45:55 UTChenke54 to avoid this, just tag the whole watercourse with layer = -1
22015-12-08 22:19:24 UTCJakka I do not think you may tag whole watercourse with -1. Only where "Where a river or stream goes under a ...something + tag of the something...
