Upload zoom-dependent?

Posted by zwe on 15 August 2014 in English (English)

Hi experienced users, as a newby I redraw some roads in north-east India, using JOSM, based on recent GPS traces. Originally some of these roads were rather inaccurate - straight lines between few points. After uploading them with many more points, OSM shows the new road lines only with certain zoom factors whereas the old - inaccurate - roads are shown both at higher and lower zoom factors. What did I do wrong? What should I do differently? ZWE

Keep on doing on like you did!

See https://help.openstreetmap.org/questions/34431/maps-changes-not-correctly-displayed-on-rendered-map-version

some zoom levels need longer than others.

Also try to refresh your browser's cach by pressing F5 or similar.

Not all zoom levels will update like magic. Zoom levels 13 or closer get updated more often (from about 5 minutes to 24 hours depending on the load) than Zoom levels 12 or further (around a month or more).
