so I only monitor Notes these days.
For regional fixes, I would schedule a "missing speed limit" report
for a video speed limit survey.
It was great at calling out missing 1-way streets, but it would
require a survey. I think Scout covers that already with statistics
which is better.
Sometimes it would call out missing roads that I could add from
TIGER. Maproulette / TIGER battleship has addressed the many of the
missing streets already.
A few would be wrong street names or bad geometry telling them to
turn at the wrong place - that could be fixed from Bing.
There might be an occasional report of a wrong street name - and a
case where the refreshed TIGER confirmed the report and I could make the
The remainder would be an address in the wrong place. Most of those
would have taken a survey or public address data to correct.
Recently, I found an OSM note in which an Android routing App
incorrectly routed a long distance around a closed part of a major
secondary road. Upon inspection, it appeared to be a tiny road segment
that was accidentally deleted. Now that many major roads have route
relations, those could be monitored for a break - and then called out
for a check to see if is a temporary construction closure or accidental
