I'm working on the hill areas in Nepal.

Can you link to the area or a couple of the buildings (or other objects)?  

To link to the area, just copy the URL from your browser.

To get a link to the object in iD, you can select one of the buildings, then copy the link from the "View on OpenStreetMap" link that's in the lower left.

Using iD OpenStreatMap editor. Three tools at the top: Point, Line, Area. Some people have used the Line tool to designate a house, and it shows up as a little square road.

Buildings are normally drawn using lines. So, I'm not sure what you mean exactly.

Also, some tasks only require residential areas to be outlined without the need to trace all buildings.

How can we help people use the right tool?

I am doing loads of corrections.
