Attempting to revert destructive changesets

Posted by nickrosencrans on 5 April 2012 in English (English)

Today I noticed that a number of nodes appear to have been deleted from the Keweenaw Peninsula. Since I spent a few weeks working on the Michigan Technological University campus last fall, I'm confused and concerned at their disappearance. I'm attempting to revert the changesets that deleted such a significant amount of data, because they were deleted without any explanation. If my data was in error, please let me know so I can improve my map-making skills.

I conducted the reversion based on info at the following two pages: http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Change_rollback http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Vandalism

Also, if anybody has up-to-date info on the status of the Moderation mailing list, please share. I'm not certain whether it's ethically acceptable for me to simply revert the changesets that deleted the data from the map, but I don't know what the proper reporting structure is for a moderator to help me out. If fellow mappers out there have suggestions for how to handle situations like this in the future, please message me.

Thank you!

Filling in the blanks

Lately I've discovered that a bunch of areas in rural Michigan simply don't exist on OSM yet. I've taken some basic steps and started adding aspects of the map that I'm fairly confident on; lakes, roads, buildings, etc.
