> there are some obvious omissions and variations as you mentioned one that stands out to me is the omission of the Rakaia River which is more than a small creek!
I'm not entirely sure why these are not showing up. It's not a case of the tags being missing, they are lacking in the original data as well. I'll upload the .osm files shortly for you to peruse..
> and also Canterbury some roads shown as minor tracks but as I see it having them is a huge bonus as they can be retagged later to correctly display etc from local survey/knowledge
Right, I think some roads are being tagged as dirt tracks, when instead they should possibly just be surface=unpaved, hence they won't show up with dotted brown lines...
> I don't have you tech skills but would be happy to assist with improving correcting the data after the import as I have quite alot of local knowledge and about and about all over the SI
That's exactly what it's about at this stage, spotting anomalies, tagging problems and other omissions...
