Forgetting the obvious...

Posted by James(UK) on 1 May 2013 in English (English)

With thanks to Rovastar, I can't believe I missed off some service roads from my recent mappings; I'd mapped some parking areas, but not connected them to any highways, leaving them in a kind-of "limbo".

For some reason, I'd got it into my newbie head that I didn't need to map "across pavements", even though I could see the new ways I'd created didn't link to a "main" way...

Must be the medication... ;-)

Anyway, Rovastar very kindly added them in for me on one example (as below), and I've now gone back and added them in on some other mappings I've done and missed them from.

Great advice from them too; go and look at another example of something, before mapping a new instance of it yourself, as you can pick up lots of tips from other people's work.

After my first mapping I posted a link to what I had done on the forum, and got a reply pointing out that I had not joined the paths I had added to the roads, together with a description of how to do so. Lord knows how long it would have taken me to figure that out unaided!

Thanks RetiredInNH,

Yes, funny thing the human brain.... wonder if we'd be better off without one.
