Errors in the Map Data
This section is about errors - some say bugs in map and how to deal with them:
- Notes – The most common way to report errors/bugs or urgent improvements. Easily add reports on the OpenStreetMap main website with the add improvement/error feature.
- MapDust - A different system with feedback to map data errors/bugs.
- OpenStreetBugs - This has been replaced by Notes and is no more supported.
- Quality assurance – Exhaustive list of tools for improving map data quality. Includes tools which show potential mapping bugs.

Maintainers of OSM-related software generally have an issue tracker at the same place as their development repository. In most cases, this is github. Please check the wiki page for the individual project to find out where the maintainer wants bugs reported.
In all cases: please search the already reported bugs before posting a new one. If you post a new one, please be verbose to avoid the need of guessing by the developers. Thank you for your contribution!
