It was another refreshing moment, educating me on the essence of been an active member on HOT foundation. Below is the agenda of the meeting held on Friday 8th February 2019 • Briefing from OSM Nigeria Coordinator. • OSM Communities - local and global • HOT Working Groups. • OSM Africa. • Mapping Tasks. • Brief from HOT Community Staff and Board. • Question & Answer session. • Review of past topics.

In all I left with just one key note from Gertrude Hope- Director of HOT(Senior Mentor). In her Words “Every Edit Saves Life”. #letgirlsmap and #mapthedifference

Hello,

I did comment on your first edit ( https://www.openstreetmap.org/changeset/65206194 )to the OSM database but there was no response to the comment so I made lots of correcting edits.

I see you are still adding a lot of un-described areas to the map that match buildings on the aerial imagery. They should be tagged at least as building=yes, the area=yes tag should then be removed. Otherwise they are not rendered, so are of no benefit to OSM or anyone using the database.

The buildings can also be tidied up by zooming right in, you can then correct the outlines, you can also orthogonalize (square up) buildings to make your mapping more professional looking.

Regards Bernard.
