[Talk-us] Battlegrid

The standard tag for where a road is misnamed in some other commonly
referred to source is not:name.


How to deal with well-intentioned mappers damaging the map by re-introducing
bad data is an open question. They can actually cause quite a lot of damage
without intending to, and the systematic nature of the damage isn't obvious.

I need to look into Battlegrid updates. It seems that something broke

As I work to fix road names in Skagit and Whatcom County I want to make sure
that they won't appear on Battlegrid. For example, I just changed North
Summit Court to Kinglet Court in Whatcom County. I verified the name which
does not match TIGER 2013.  Does removing the tiger:reviewed tag keep the
way off Battlegrid? I'd hate to see it renamed to match TIGER since it is


I fear that changing from tiger:reviewed=no to yes or deleting the tag won't
keep it off Battlegrid.
