Help! Missing Land Mass

Hi!

Can someone either advise or fix what I am referring to as a missing land mass.  The place is called Davaar Island and is located at the following coordinates within the UK. 

Davaar Island Trig Point

NR 75775 19989

55 25'20.47N  005 32'41.28W

The island is a local tourist attraction with a painting of the Crucifixion on a cave wall, apparently discovered in the 1890's by a drunk sailor.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Re: Help! Missing Land Mass

Normally I'd start by going to https://www.openstreetmap.org/ and selecting "help" there.  That'll take you to https://www.openstreetmap.org/help - the "welcome" link will show you a short introduction (including to make sure that the information that you want to add isn't from a copyright source).  Down the bottom of that page there is a "start mapping" button.

In your case however searching OSM for "Davaar Island" finds https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/104809516/history , so it's already been added, but it looks like someone's forgotten to exclude it from the Firth of Clyde.  I've mentioned that at https://www.openstreetmap.org/changeset/71238687 .

Best Regards,

Andy

The island is there without natural=coastline (the better drawn outline). A coarser outline is there drawn to almost duplicate the island it was tagged only natural=coastline. I've removed the coarse outline and then tagged the island outline as natural=coastline. It already starts to render but could take a while to appear at all zoom levels. Changeset 73256240 in case I've messed up.

I'm not seeing it at https://a.tile.openstreetmap.org/19/254 … png/status etc.  I suspect the massive water polygon will need it adding as an inner too.

According to the changeset discussion this was done about an hour ago. So now it should really start to render some time in the future ;-).


OSM hat nicht das Ziel bis Ende des Monats einen vollständigen Datensatz der Welt zu enthalten.
(nach S.W.) - Aber weil die Welt vielfältig ist, weil sie auch im Detail interessant ist, mag ich genaue Karten (nach C.)

Yes - that change has fixed https://map.atownsend.org.uk/maps/map/m … n=-5.54441 (which uses the old style way of rendering land and water not the new OSM-Carto way).  The main site will follow along shortly I suspect.
