OpenStreetMap

Oops!

Posted by Jeroen Muris on 4 March 2010 in English (English)

Today I discovered I made my first big mistake in editing the OpenStreetMap: earlier this week I somehow straightened too large a stretch of the Nieuwe Binnenweg in Rotterdam, resulting in a big 'spike' near the Claes de Vrieselaan.

See http://www.openstreetmap.org/browse/way/51683769/history, version 1.

I couldn't quickly find how to revert to an old version of the situation, so I corrected it manually. I just hope my spike doesn't end up in any not-so-often updated copy of planet.osm....

If you're using Potlatch (the online editor), select the way and press 'H' for history (or use the Advanced menu) to revert to an earlier version.
