sick of garages

Posted by Person Guy on 16 September 2020 in English (English)

oh my god there are so many garages in my town. its packed enough that most houses dont have attached garages but most have space in the back of the property to put one along a side road. twice the zone work as any other suburban area. god.

edit: just realized these diaries get put into a public feed. a lot are more organized than stupid ramblings like this, or serve as announcements. think ‘journals’ or ‘notes’ would be a more fitting term if that’s the intended use for this. I read ‘diary’ and assumed it was just for writing whatever

It is actually. Just write anything related to OSM, otherwise it becomes useless spam.

It’s up to you how important the features are to you.

To me, main buildings (houses, offices, …) are the most important, because they allow to visualise addresses.

I’ve been mapping houses (with address info) for a very long time, but never mapped garages or sheds until our region got access to an open dataset of buildings (which are now being individually checked and imported).

As long as it’s OSM-related it’s on topic. I totally get the need to vent about challenges in your local area, and trust me, you are not alone. Heck, look at my entries, I have found some, er, interesting things looking for opening_hours/collection_times/service_times issues.
