Hey Jonathan,

Some more information you have on the wiki page of openstreetmap:

How to tag highways (roads, paths, etc):

How to tag waterways:

How to tag buldings:

Give only information in, of you are certain about.

When you are saving the information, tell what you have done, and what is
still missing mapping in that field.

Best regards,
Filipe Santana Lopes
