I wonder if anyone here can help. I'm trying to track down the
cause of a problem where rogue data is getting added around latitude
0, longitude 0 in the middle of the Atlandic.
The latest example changeset that does this has a changeset comment
of "#Project NOAH-ISAIAH added buildings". It's that user's first
changeset, and adds some buildings both in the northern Philippines
and at "null island". A web search for that changeset comment finds
<a class="m_-5421626544922281405moz-txt-link-freetext" href="http://blog.noah.dost.gov.ph/2016/03/18/project-noah-announces-start-of-isaiah/" target="_blank">http://blog.noah.dost.gov.ph/<wbr>2016/03/18/project-noah-<wbr>announces-start-of-isaiah/</a>
and the contact info there is <a class="m_-5421626544922281405moz-txt-link-abbreviated" href="mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org" target="_blank">email@example.com</a>
, so I'm sending this email to this list.
Clearly something has gone wrong somewhere - either the lat/long
values for the nodes of <a class="m_-5421626544922281405moz-txt-link-freetext" href="https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/452601924/history" target="_blank">https://www.openstreetmap.org/<wbr>way/452601924/history</a>
were confused by JOSM at upload, or confused by something external
to JOSM and JOSM was just used as an interface to the OSM API
without checking the uploaded data. Obviously this isn't the fault
of the user who uploaded it (it's their first changeset!) but it
would be great if whatever training they receive could be changed so
that things like this don't happen in the future.
In order to do that, can anyone think what might be the best way to
contact whoever would have run the OSM session in which this user
uploaded that changeset? If we can work out want went wrong we can
fix it for next time, whether it's a JOSM bug or something
procedurally that needs changing.
