A bot (derived from the word "robot") is an tool that carries out repetitive and mundane automated edits on a regular basis to help maintain OpenStreetMap . Bots are able to make edits very rapidly and can disrupt OpenStreetMap if they are incorrectly designed or operated. The automated edits code of conduct should always been followed when creating, operating or modifying a bot.
