No Time To Edit? Add a Note!

If you just want something small fixed and don't have the time to sign up and learn how to edit, it's easy to add a note.

Just click or the same icon on the map display. This will add a marker to the map, which you can move by dragging. Add your message, then click save, and other mappers will investigate.

Other concerns

If you have concerns about how our data is being used or about the contents please consult our copyright page for more legal information, or contact the appropriate OSMF working group.
