Coastline

Posted by TheMapper27 on 8 October 2018 in French (Fran├žais)

Thank you for the advice you gave me on my last entry, but I need to solve one last thing....

Can someone detail my coastline? User Paxtar added 900 nodes to my coastline a few months ago, but I am 100% unable to move them.

As a matter of principle, I don't understand your problem.

Just to make sure I understand: ...

... just now, using ONLY my tablet computer and iD (which I literally have only used once before in my life, because I hate it), I nevertheless successfully moved one of the nodes Paxtar placed on your coastline. The node is here

Note that there will be a delay for the coastline render to update (often even a day or longer for lower zooms) because the coastline update is an intensive process on the server, and runs separately from other render updates. So check back in a day and do a flush of your browser cache, to make sure you can see it, but I have confirmed the node is definitely moved using JOSM.

So what's the problem, exactly? Sounds like possibly a training / learning issue rather than a technical problem.

Firstly you would need to tell us how you want us to detail your coastline. Should the person make inverts? Or should we make it bulging?

(I really don't no if I am using the words correctly. Or even using the correct words at all.)

Yes but what do you do to move the nodes? If I get the hang of it, my country could really take off...

To move the nodes, you have to get hold of the node, then just drag it.

Click and drag... I had no problem with it. Perhaps try a different browser? I click the node, it pops up its little "circle-menu", I drag the node.

This way is not appropriate, the motorway is visible from high zooms and goes against verisimilitude. You can just use a blank line with no tags or just a note: tag as it will still show up in the editor

Adding new nodes is no big deal either. In iD, first click the way, then double-click to add a node (if you omit the first click you end up zooming in). Once the node is there, one click-hold-drag and it moves.

Making highly detailed coastlines is quite slow this way, though. Creating a new coastline way is much faster, because you only need one click per node and no dragging. But if you replace existing coastline you must know what to do and be careful not to flood. Except for small islands, I would only create new coastline in bigger changesets using JOSM.

@iiEarth @Luciano when I do that, it moves the entire map with it :/

Maybe I will move it for you using JOSM, will be much faster. Are you moving the line itself instead?

And which part of the coastline to move?

Well, it's just to detail the coastline, and I was not moving the line. I can't move anything.

@TheMapper27: When you click on a node, does anything pop up?

Yes..some sort of cirular menu!

Once that menu pops up, are you able to click-and-hold on the node to drag it? If not, does the menu contain a four-way arrow to move things?
