HELP needed in fixing the map / [RESOLVED]

Posted by Nachtspazz on 10 May 2013 in English (English)

Changeset 16028497 by Danzelot spoiled the map (using iD 1.0.0).

Examples: Nodes 716969996 and 727642607. And landuse=residential for "Böfingen" disappeared.

I tried to fix it, but got stuck. Can someone help, please.

What do I need to do to correct this unfortunate mistake (or better: to get it corrected by someone who is better skilled)?


Modelling a locked gate

Posted by Nachtspazz on 16 June 2011 in English (English)


any suggestions how to model a locked gate?

I modelled it in the following way:
- I have a way.
- At the location of the gate (somewhere along the way) I create a node.
- I tag the node: barrier=gate; noexit=yes

In reality the situation is a slightly more complex, see:

Thanks for all the hints. I got JOSM running and also got familiar with it ...

Sometimes I have been using the tag "no_exit" instead of "noexit". How can I correct this across all my edits?

Thanks for help

How to copy&paste tags from one object to the other?

Posted by Nachtspazz on 24 March 2011 in English (English)


I am new to OMS editing. I use Potlatch 2 but would also switch to another editor.

My problem: I want to copy all tags from one object to another (in particular, if two ways have the same ore similar tags). Alternatively, copy and past of the complete way including tags would also be sufficient.

Any hints?


My Plans

Posted by Nachtspazz on 21 March 2011 in English (English)

I plan to tag in this area:
- Playgrounds (Tag:leisure=playground, Area or Point)
- Spielstraßen (Germany) (Tag:highway=living_street) (often wrongly tagged as residential)
- Small footpaths (e.g. connecting roads)(Tag:highway=footway, Key:surface=paved or Key:surface=unpaved)

Location: Kuhberg, Weststadt, Grimmelfingen, Ulm, Regierungsbezirk Tübingen, Baden-Württemberg, 89077, Germany
