1. Our (seamark:) tags are not rendered or interpreted by any the land
map browsers, applications, etc., so do not present conflicts to the
wider community. Only those specialist browsers & applications actually
interested in seamarks will be affected, so we need to have any
discussions with those people, rather than the community as a whole.
2. Many land map imports, landsat tracings, and even member surveyed
edits have similarly large positional errors, so why are we being
castigated for importing inaccurate data? The whole idea of bulk imports
to get a starting point from which our mapping contributors can survey &
3. We do not use the FIXME tag, we use the seamark:fixme tag.
4. The intended users of the NGA LoL are commercial shipping who
probably don't care about a 200m positional error. They just need to
know an approximate position, then look out of the window and/or use
their radar to actually locate the mark.
