Hi Ilya,

I think some more attention needs putting on the creation of new/missing fuel stations.

Some issues I've come across:


Looks like it will attempt to create a node over the top of an existing location.
Seems like the two nearby stations either side of the A31 are getting confused.

'New' Station NVDS353-10018810 seems a long way off the real position (about 1.5 miles wrong).
Existing location:

However a number other new locations randomly checked seem correct (i.e. looks like a fuel station from aerial imagery)

And at least the one here is definitely correct:
Which I could create manually since I 'know it'

If at first you don't succeed,
then skydiving isn't for you.

Subject: [Talk-GB] Importing Shell fuel stations


You might remember a few months ago I discussed here importing of Shell fuel stations. The data provider is Navads, which has a contract with Shell for putting their stations on the map. They asked me to proceed with the import and sent an updated list of the stations. I have prepared an import and would like to do it in a few days.

Please help me review the data. Here is the updated map:


And here is a list of changed tag values for existing fuel stations, for your convenience:


This import will be made from Zverik_imports account and will be described at https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Navads_Imports page.
