National Cycle Routes Dec 2017. 9 days ago

I don't think Andy pulls in data directly from Sustrans - he just uses whatever data is in the main OSM database.

So if we're out of date then fix it and it should show up on the cycle layer - just be careful of any license issues if using Sustrans as a source rather than surveying on the ground.

Tool for measuring elevation above sea level on the OSM map 14 days ago

Adding ele tags to existing objects (if accurate, which GPS elevations rarely are) is certainly not terrible but equally probably isn't that valuable.

Trying to create an elevation model by adding a grid of nodes just to carry ele tags would be pretty terrible.

As a general rule we don't encourage the addition of elevation data beyond things like specific peaks because that is much better served using a separate elevation model such as the SRTM data that Piskvor has mentioned.

City, Town, Village, Locality: Description Rewording 4 months ago

Yes, and then you get "cities" in the US with a population of two people and a dog and the importance to match.

There's a reason things like this need to be based on country specific knowledge. The OSM names shouldn't be read literally but rather should be considered roughly as a hierarchy of importance and then country specific rules can be used to map local definitions to those categories.
