The amount of data on OSM sometimes boggles the mind, there was 23471 new changesets just yesterday. With so much great mapping work being done by the community, there’s always a possibility of a few bad apples. So, here’s a collection of a few that I have stumbled across last week (13 - 17 June).
This changeset in which a number of
highway=footway & footway=crossing & crossing=zebratags were deleted and nodes on highways with
highway=crossingtags were added in downtown Atlanta. It is to be remembered that both these methods are suggested in the OSM wiki for mapping crosswalks.
This changeset deleted roads in Ethiopia using iD editor. Also 5 harmful changesets from 2 other users from whom one was deleting buildings and the other was editing features without any reference imagery or mentioned source.
This changeset gave non-latin names in
nametag in London and this was reverted.
In this changeset, nodes had attributes meant for the ways.
- This changeset fixes a user changing
- These 3 changesets 1, 2,3 were reverted because they looked like this.
Stumbled on anything suspicous on the map this week? Do drop the mapper a message, for all you know, it was just an honest mistake :) Look forward to another roundup next week.
