How to edit large ways?

Posted by rye212 on 5 October 2011 in English (English).

There's a large administrative boundary called "Yahoo hires imagery in Ireland ..." I only know this because I can see the title rendered (in the centre of the area) at certain zoom levels on OSM.com. I can also search for the title and get a result form the nominatum.

The area covered is too large to see in a zoom-in edit area in Potlatch 2. So how can I view/edit this way? Even being able to view the list of nodes and history would be partially useful.

Given that the yahoo imagery is gone it would make more sense to delete the whole thing. That boundary never belonged in the database anyway.

For this kind of things, you need to use more professional editors like Josm.

And one of those roads has a shop=supermarket tag on it?

I'm gonna delete it right away.

They are nicely gone now, but there is also a bing relation.

Note that we have now an alternative of defining/displaying such aerial boundaries which should never belong in the db : http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/JOSM/Plugin/Imagery-XML-Bounds

Thanks everyone for sorting that Yahoo imagery relation out.
