Building not visualized. Weird mistake!

Posted by FraMauro on 18 January 2014 in English (English)

I realized that the Way: 174549541 is not visualized in any of the maps (standard, cyclemap, ...).

This is quite strange because is more than a year old and it has the tag building=residential

The Way: 174549327 (just at the side) has the same tag and is visible on the maps

Location: Quadraro, Municipio Roma VII, Rome, Lazio, Italy

I got here via https://twitter.com/search?q=openstreetmap&f=realtime

The building in question had an error in it's geometry. The validator in JOSM was able to detect it, there was an extra node on one of the corners. I just merged it with the corner.

@maxerickson I don't know how you did it but well done: I don't use twitter.

@FraMauro. As maxerickson insinuates the error was readily recognisable in OSMI as shown in this example. It is always advisable to check your work using the OSMI and Keepright.

After all we all make mistakes
