Data disaster: Nukus, Uzbekistan

Posted by PlaneMad on 9 September 2015 in English (English).

While inspecting routing errors using the OSM Inspector unconnected issues, stumbled on this town called Nukus which seemed to have some duplicated data.

JOSM Validator report for the area:

  • Errors 6432
  • Duplicated ways 1355
  • Duplicated nodes 5059
  • Duplicated relations 14
  • Warnings 10299
  • Crossing ways 5748
  • Way end near highway 524
  • Overlapping highways 265
  • Duplicated nodes 192

The changeset which caused this seems to be the case of a large upload gone wrong. Wondering if JOSM should have never allowed such a massive upload without splitting it into chunks.

What a disaster.

Oh… errr … well it was not me. :)

Perhaps the easiest solution is a revert. Good Luck.

Still no changes.
