[OSM-talk] is OSM a fake map.

Hi.  I'm trying to understand what are you talking about, and I have two

1- that there are mistakes in the map.  that's a good thing, that you
are able to spot them, because you can correct them.  I suggest you do
so, and share the good news when you have something to celebrate!

2- you hope that someone helps you correcting them.  in that case it
would be helpful if you would share a link to the area you can't correct

I can assure you, in my experience, the big G map is much, much, much
faker than OSM, at least in marginal areas.  like Jardín, Antioquia in
2015, or Las Minas, Los Santos right now.  it shows roads that do not exist.

but yes, also OSM has trolls mapping non existent stuff, very true. 
stay alert and remove mistakes, or ask the community for help, providing
the relevant links to the suspicious edits.

ciao, happy mapping, Mario
