OpenGeofiction

Really noobie questions (I'm back to mapping, also I'm doing an urban development project on open geo)

Posted by An egg trying to draw a map on 5 October 2017 in English (English)
  1. How do I create areas in JOSM, do I draw nodes and connect them together and add an inner/outer relation sort of thing?

  2. I don't know how I would modify my coastline for parts that go far inland, would I keep that as part of the coastline or give it a new tag? Also, how do I create islands, do I use the island tag for islands out from my coastline?

  3. Would I be allowed to do a project on opengeofiction? I plan to develop my city along with completing my school project

Thanks Egg

I believe the reason you've not had a reply is that the answer to your question is either easily available on the JOSM help or on the FAQ here...

I think another reason not to reply is I have no idea what he's even talking about (i.e. item #3).

I'll furnish an answer to #3. If you feel that your mapping is a contribution towards your school project, please go ahead - whilst staying within the rules of OGF. Good luck.

Oh whoops, shall I delete this then? I found them on the wiki for openstreetmap

Try not to copy & paste. Not for me to say whether you should delete. Don't think so.

You don't need a relation for an area.

It depends on what you mean by "far inland". You'd have to show an example.

You tag islands with as natural=coastline, but make sure that the island is to the left and that sea is to the right of the way!

I think ADB52 answered to the last question - anything is allowed if you stick to rules.

Hope this helps.
