[HOT] Request: Suggestions for improvements to iD OSM Web Editor

Tue May 17 14:18:01 UTC 2016


My suggestion was a tick box in the "map data" pane to turn QA elements on/off.  I like your suggestion during save as well.  My focus is predominately on road names in OSM so improving that visually is a priority for me.

It's my understanding that using tools like keep right is preferable but if iD had a few basic QA tools I believe data quality would increase overall and you would get more users taking interest in QA efforts overall.  My suggestion was to halo/highlight roads that did not have a name tag.  3-4 other simple QA functions would be great (non-squared buildings, disconnected roads, duplicate polygons/ways, etc).  It would prevent some beginner mistakes from persisting in mapathons/HOT tasks.
