'We Fit' FAIL, Google FAIL, OpenStreetMap WIN

Posted by ika-chan! UK on 6 October 2014 in English (English)


The way in question, 55984002, had been tagged with the height restriction of 15’-3” since UrbanRambler added it on 20 April 2010…

…Yet Google doesn’t even have a facility to put in height restrictions…

…Another reason to switch to OSM.

Interestingly another low bridge incident:

The height limit is marked in OSM since 18 November 2013

Neither of the BBC stories mention the Sat-Nav make/data provider.

Great new article finds! I remember an article a few years ago about some island I think in the Pacific Ocean that many of the big maps listed was there but OSM didn’t…and that’s because it didn’t actually exist.
