Changeset No. Date Contributor Comment
12018-03-14 20:57:25 UTCj03lar50n I'm not sure that is valid reasoning to remove this data. Please stop deleting the data. I think this changeset possibly warrants a revert. Have you broached this topic elsewhere? Is there another discussion happening that one can follow?
22018-03-14 21:01:21 UTCsvdsrfr6 Believe me, I wish it could remain as I use it often. There was an in-person meeting with the Forest Service a few days ago and one of the rangers was very upset about the trails on the ridge and actively wanted to block them. I think it's a good idea to leave them off the map for awhile until thi...
32018-03-14 21:03:22 UTCsvdsrfr6 If you want to revert you can, I don't know much about openstreetmap, I'm just doing what I think is in the best interest of keeping the "off the radar" trails open rather than getting them blocked and creating hassles.
42018-03-14 21:10:01 UTCj03lar50n I will be reverting the deletion of this data. I understand your concern, but the physical features on the ground are what the Forest Service is worried about - not a digital map. Until things change - this map is a correct representation of what is on the ground...and many of us have put in a lot o...
52018-03-14 21:13:08 UTCsvdsrfr6 But a digital map is what makes people discover and ride the illegal trails, which is a large part of why the problem exists. By mapping illegal trails, people think they're legal, and ride/maintain them. According to the Forest Service that is illegal activity. I really think illegal trails shou...
62018-03-14 21:15:40 UTCsvdsrfr6 Users have unwittingly followed the trails I deleted onto Camp San Luis (military) property and gotten $400 tickets, bikes confiscated, and misdemeanors on their records. I don't think trails like that should be on OSM!
72018-03-14 21:25:01 UTCj03lar50n Fair points! But I really think that this should be discussed before outright deleting features. I also think that until the trail is physically blocked or altered on the ground - that these are legitimate features to include on the map. Perhaps their tags can be modified - have you explored doing t...
82018-03-14 21:31:01 UTCsvdsrfr6 Gotcha - sorry, I didn't know about OSM etiquette and discussion capabilities. I have not explored modifying tags, I'll look into it. I've never viewed tags when exploring the OSM map and doubt most users do. Please consider the real-world implications of having these trails visible to the curious...
92018-03-14 21:34:03 UTCsvdsrfr6 ...maybe you're already aware of this, but many trail guide apps pull data from OSM. and are two that come to mind but there are many others. It's not just people seeing the trails here - they're seeing them on trail guide apps too, which is probably a bigger source ...
102018-03-14 21:43:15 UTCj03lar50n Please take a look at tagging with the 'access' key ...these _are_ still physical features, but it's up to whomever is rendering the data _how_ that data gets 'drawn'/rendered. If an app uses OSM data, it should make a distinction on trail segments that...
112018-03-14 21:45:35 UTCsvdsrfr6 thank you!
122018-03-14 21:47:25 UTChpanno I would hate to have features on the map deleted for lack of appropriate tagging. There are tags available that describe data as non-accessible. I would think that the responsibility falls on those who create the apps referencing any OSM data to filter and grab the appropriate data based on its attr...
132018-03-14 22:00:38 UTCsvdsrfr6 I think it's wiser to not map illegal trails at all, or trails that lead users to trespass on military land or private property, rather than to put the onus on those using the data.
12018-01-10 01:57:43 UTCj03lar50n why should it be removed?
22018-01-10 02:11:09 UTCSLO Jon It may have been a bit rash it deleting it, my mistake. I did not realize the City had incorporated an outdated plan in the area. My main goal was to fix the area surrounding the bike path, and could not find any documentation on the commercial area till I did a bit more digging and found this http:...
32018-01-10 02:51:17 UTCj03lar50n Thanks for the reply. SLO Jon and I have moved this discussion to a message.
12017-11-09 15:37:23 UTCj03lar50n at a quick glance, looks good to me
12017-11-03 13:32:38 UTCdave_in_ag Why is there a small section with an Asia timezone in the US?
22017-11-03 21:42:29 UTCj03lar50n good catch, @dave_in_ag. I have reverted this changeset
12017-10-28 19:32:17 UTCj03lar50n looks good - thanks!
12017-10-24 21:06:52 UTCj03lar50n 😍 nice!
12017-10-23 17:19:18 UTCj03lar50n This looks fantastic - thank you!
12017-07-31 14:01:52 UTCj03lar50n Interesting! I didn't know about this route. Thanks 👍
12017-07-07 20:04:10 UTCkaritotp Hi, welcome to OpenStreetMap. Could you please share the source for these highways They do not match with the satellite imagery. Thanks
22017-07-08 00:41:22 UTCj03lar50n Hi cjohn105 and karitotp. Yes, welcome to OSM, cjohn105. It looks like you have digitizing tracks that perhaps fire equipment made during the suppression of a wildfire, sometime around 2011 ... as per this source tms:
12017-06-22 02:19:41 UTCj03lar50n wow, looking better in DT SLO!
12017-06-12 17:05:16 UTCj03lar50n Thank you, TheDutchMan13. I'm curious how this inquiry came in to you? I don't see it as a Note.
22017-06-29 01:13:30 UTCTheDutchMan13
32017-06-29 01:13:53 UTCTheDutchMan13 This user sent me a private message on osm
42017-06-29 01:15:24 UTCTheDutchMan13 My apologies for not getting back to you sooner.
12017-05-17 23:24:39 UTCj03lar50n w00t 🙌
22017-05-17 23:37:36 UTChpanno Back at it!
12017-05-03 15:37:04 UTCj03lar50n >Most of this area just wants deleting tbh
ugh, yeah...because of all the poor landuse/landcover imports?
22017-05-03 15:42:51 UTCRichard I was thinking more the really rough TIGER roads around the oilfield - most rural TIGER highway=residentials are an approximation at best, but this bunch is really bad and actively misleading. If all the oilfield roads were deleted, and a few access roads traced afresh, the map would be a lot better...
12017-03-22 21:37:02 UTCj03lar50n I would suggest changing the road type and possibly only removing the name tag, instead of deleting the entire feature. Having driveways included in the road network can assist with routing.
22017-03-23 06:53:19 UTCsrividya_c @zhackney and @ j03lar50n
I have reverted the changeset at #47087298 changeset.

@zhackney do improve the existing highways and not delete them if it exists in imagery.
12017-03-19 16:01:00 UTCj03lar50n Hello, are you certain this is a park? Does it have a name?
12017-03-09 19:22:01 UTCj03lar50n Hello, your edit was reverted by another member of the local SLO OpenStreetMap community. The flooding may be a temporary situation, but it's not a permanent feature and not an appropriate addition. Please let us know if you have any questions - we're glad to help!
12017-02-24 02:53:00 UTCj03lar50n thanks for cleaning up those vineyard tags!
12017-02-23 15:05:33 UTCj03lar50n Awesome! You continue to make great additions to our local OSM - thank you!!
12017-02-10 22:30:14 UTCj03lar50n Hello, can you explain this edit? It does not seem appropriate from my evaluation of the aerial imagery for this area. Please advise.
12017-01-17 14:29:10 UTCj03lar50n Hello, what exactly are you up to with all the edits you're making on this campground? I am not seeing any benefits gained from your edits and believed the data was already in a good/usable state. I am local to this area and have worked with others to map this in-person. Please advise your intention...
22017-01-18 07:20:47 UTCBman Hi @j03lar50n, my apologies for the multiple edits with no visible changes.
In short, I was originally trying to improve things, then realized I made a mistake and tried to get things back to the way they originally looked on OSM tiles.
I initially noticed that they all had identical addr:*, and w...
12016-12-13 15:39:46 UTCj03lar50n Nice! Thanks, bro
12016-08-22 15:46:26 UTCj03lar50n Thank you so much for this fix!
12016-06-17 03:26:48 UTCj03lar50n nice add!
12016-06-11 02:02:42 UTCj03lar50n nice adds!
22016-06-14 04:25:33 UTCedgrmdna Thanks! I worked on a project to see if there was enough ag land in SLO county to supply all craft breweries with hops (all hypothetical ,of-course) so I had to update tags for all craft breweries in SLO cnty to extract from overpass.
32016-06-16 03:53:57 UTCj03lar50n that's so freaking awesome. keep on rocking it, yo!
12016-05-30 20:42:18 UTCj03lar50n nice adds!
22016-05-31 02:19:07 UTCjsauder Thanks j03lar50n!
12016-01-19 20:21:21 UTCj03lar50n :thumbsup:
12016-01-18 17:20:58 UTCj03lar50n Thanks (again), John!
12016-01-18 17:19:05 UTCj03lar50n Thanks, John!
12015-12-16 18:13:42 UTCj03lar50n not 'Cheda Ranch' as changeset comment bad. It is beach access.
12015-11-24 21:50:21 UTCj03lar50n nice add, thanks!
12015-11-11 18:16:37 UTCj03lar50n please use 'local_knowledge' instead of 'Local knowledge' for your Value in the Source Key.
12015-09-17 06:34:58 UTCj03lar50n why didn't you add this information to the existing building way? How do you know Rancho Grande Subaru occupies that specific location?
12015-06-12 22:06:50 UTCj03lar50n The way that you've imported individual parcels as landuse=residential is questionable as to how effective & worthwhile it really has been. Why not just hand-draw ways around the entire block and tag landuse=residential? Example:

This has resulted in ...
12015-04-17 15:52:06 UTCj03lar50n Lance, looks good. Remember to 'square' your buildings with the 'Q' key in JOSM
12015-04-01 06:30:37 UTCj03lar50n please use the keyboard shortcut 'Q' with JOSM to Orthogonalize Shape
12015-02-13 19:44:00 UTCj03lar50n I think A74 is more appropriate than A51 for this way per this reference
22015-02-13 19:50:56 UTCj03lar50n I think A51 is more appropriate than A41 for this way per this reference
12015-01-09 16:05:43 UTCneuhausr hey just wondering why you're adding nodes only tagged with josm/ignore on them? if it's notes for yourself, maybe there are better ways to do it?
22015-01-09 16:59:39 UTCj03lar50n @neuhausr thank you for this catch. This is an honest mistake we've made in which we did not adjust a setting in our JOSM Remote Control to 'Download objects to new layer' when we're using HOTOSM's Task Manager. We will fix this right now, thanks again.
12015-01-04 22:36:36 UTCj03lar50n I think you can delete this node. Duplicate. Way already exists
12014-11-10 16:32:48 UTCj03lar50n How do you know this is content=water ?
