more directed editing in Mukdahan

Hello,

has anyone noticed more of such edits?

https://www.openstreetmap.org/changeset … /104.74574

User registered just a few days ago and edits areas with uncommon tagging and unclear source.
Sounds like we have another organized edit going on.

Any idea what "#DVBD2020 enumeration" could be?

The school looked certainly more correct on the initial location, based on the aerials.

No idea - but I have corrected a couple. Lets see if it elicits a response ... as it did last time !

I Googled #DVBD2020 and all that came up was Swedish Flower Appreciation Society !

DVBD would be Division (Bureau?) of Vector-Borne Diseases. Likely the same project brought up in this post.

Any objections of simply reverting such changes?

https://www.openstreetmap.org/changeset/72169906

Whatever their good intention is. It does not belong in OSM. It is certainly no place to publicly document malaria cases. This is IMHO a clear violation of people's privacy.

On top of that: Their mapping ob anything what looks like a building does uesually not even remotely follow the outlines of the buildings in current imagery.

Re: more directed editing in Mukdahan

I agree Stephan.   The map is already full of junk edits.  I agree with reversion in this case.
Can you also clean up those poorly drawn "shapes" that are simply labeled area=yes.  They serve no purpose, often lie over roads, and bear very little relation to actual building outlines.
