Due to China strict law of map concerns of China, stuff including military area on OpenStreetMap is not welcomed by China mapping law. Some China Mappers are thinking about removing sensitive military area on OpenStreetMap. One of the mapper FreedSky is censoring map stuff on OpenStreetMap, and start removing military landuse on OpenStreetMap
I revert the changeset 53508675 and changeset 53508564. It’s the military area on Fujian, which is the standing opposite Taiwan.
In the previous experience deal with national security, military landuse in Israel and South Korean was removed by local mappers. But the the removed stuff was recovery when someone discovered and talk on the mailing list.
Which is important, the national security of certain country, or the global goal of mapping everything on the world?
