The place has gone or never existed. This is an auto-generated note from MAPS.ME application: a user reports a POI that is visible on a map (which can be outdated), but cannot be found on the ground. User comments: "can see where there used to be a HSBC. closed. delete" (OSM data version: 2016-08-22T09:03:02Z) #mapsme

Looking through some past tagging mistakes using osmose, it looks like I mapped a node https://www.openstreetmap.org/node/403015257 7 years ago! with name=Texaco here.

I just deleted that tag because it was on the corner node of a building (a duplicating bug introduced since actually) . But I won't set the name back on the building because, chances are it's changed from texaco to something else since then. survey needed

Came across this because we've had a photo of it on the OSM wiki for a long time. It has been used as an example of "mall" on one proposal. Incorrectly really. I would actually call this a "retail park", not a mall.

Anyway for the tagging, one thing which definitely seems wrong, is repeating the same tags across all the different buildings. Just as with schools and hospitals which have lots of buildings, we should have an outer area, perhaps including the car-parks, with some of the tags on it.

I think I would do it as an outer way with: landuse=retail + name=Dalton Park + website=http://www.dalton-park.co.uk (and yeah maybe not shop=mall ... not sure) Then just building=yes on the inside ways.

What d'you think?

All these buildings throughout Arrowbear lake need to be "squared"

(using the built in squaring tool in iD or the orthogonalize feature in JOSM https://josm.openstreetmap.de/wiki/Help/Action/OrthogonalizeShape )
