Just discovered "Keep right" - great error checking tool

Posted by daveemtb on 28 August 2009 in English (English)

I just spotted the "keep right" link in the wiki page for my town, and found that it's a great error checking tool. It helped me fix up a lot of small errors in my area.

For anyone who wants something to do, there are lots of highways that haven't been joined properly in this area:

(oh and when it complains about waterways intersecting rivers, they should be on different layers - don't add an intersecting node!)

"waterways intersecting rivers" might be a bridge :-)

Loads of the errors here are hard/impossible to fix with POTLACH, but easy to fix with JOSM.
I'v done some 'linting' (fixing pure errors) now, and will do more later.

Post me if you want me to look over other areas..

Most serious errors are now fixed. Several I couldn't do without local knowledge.

Please let me know if you 'get stuck' again...

Great little tool that, isn't it?
