OpenSeaMap documentation

I see you have finally started cleaning up and organizing the OpenSeaMap data models pages. I hope you can make it a little more readable instead of just listings of S-57 values. You could also try improving a little on the various key and value pages, starting with maybe making Key:seamark:type more complete. I fall back on many of these pages from my INT-1 documentation, that have the purpose of documenting INT-1 symbols asosiated with existing and proposed OSM tags. --Skippern 09:15, 2 November 2012 (UTC)

I have just started this documentation project. The lists that I have created will form the 'contents' pages, with each item in the list becoming a link to the page that explains that item in detail. Even in the detail pages, there will be cross-links to other pages where appropriate. This is to avoid unnecessary duplication of material as well as making navigation of the documentation easier. --Malcolmh 11:09, 13 December 2012 (UTC)


I have created two sandbox documentations for the two systems. Please look at them and include them in SeaMap documentation and next version of the editor. User:Skippern/BNIWR and User:Skippern/PPWBC --Skippern 08:15, 13 December 2012 (UTC)

Thanks, I will incorporate this information into the editor, renderer & documentation in due course. --Malcolmh 11:11, 13 December 2012 (UTC)
Looking forward to seeing BNIWR/PPWBC boards rendered on OpenSeaMap, bridge heads in Rio de Janeiro/Niteroi (Brazilian state of Rio de Janeiro), Vitoria (Espirito Santo) and Aracaju (Sergipe) have been tagged and are currently rendered with CEVNI bords. --Skippern 15:03, 22 December 2012 (UTC)

Add Category to Files

Hello, please see an Example: Thanks --Reneman (talk) 12:51, 15 March 2013 (UTC)

Please link images!

Hello Malcolmh,

Tip: Add categories to your images

Thanks a lot for contributing to the OSM-Wiki! Here's a tip to make your uploads more useful: Why not add some categories to describe them? This will help more people to find and use them.

Here's how: You can pick the file from your list of uploads, edit the file description page, and manually add the category code at the end of the page.

[[Category:Category name]]

For example, if you are uploading a Road sign, you add the following code:

[[Category:Road sign]]

This will make the File show up in the categories "Road sign".

Thanks again for your uploads! More information about categorization can be found in Category:Categories.

I have create a new category for Icons for the OpenSeeMap: Category:Openseamap Symbols. Please add your OpenSeeMap-Icons in this Category. Thanks. --Reneman (talk) 14:11, 1 April 2013 (UTC)
Great work, very nice :) --Reneman (talk) 18:55, 1 April 2013 (UTC)

Edit summaries

Hi, noticed that you are removing plenty of text without any edit summaries. Some kind of edit summaries would be really useful. RicoZ (talk) 23:57, 4 December 2015 (UTC)

Error at INT-1-preset.xml


Sorry y dont speak english

dans JOSM preferences "modeles d'attributs" "seamarks" il y a une erreur de texte, voir :

Error at line 2707 and 3727

<key key="seamark:topamrk:shape" value="2 cones point together"/>
<key key="seamark:topmark:shape" value="2 cones point together"/>

I seem to be another small inconsistency in the Seamarks menu of JOSM:

Why use seamark:topmark:shape=cone, point up with comma for objects

> Q: Buoys, Beacons, Notices/Topmarks (Q9)/CEVNI Topmarks/Channel and Waterway Limit Topmarks/Left Bank Topmark

> Q: Buoys, Beacons, Notices/Topmarks (Q9)/CEVNI Topmarks/Warning Topmarks/Left Bank Warning Topmarks/

and use seamark:topmark:shape=cone point up without comma for objects

> Q: Buoys, Beacons, Notices/Topmarks (Q9)/IALA Topmarks/IALA-A Lateral Topmarks/Starboard Hand Lateral Topmark

> Q: Buoys, Beacons, Notices/Topmarks (Q9)/IALA Topmarks/IALA-A Lateral Topmarks/Preferred Channel to Port Topmark

> Q: Buoys, Beacons, Notices/Topmarks (Q9)/IALA Topmarks/IALA-B Lateral Topmarks/Starboard Hand Lateral Topmark

> Q: Buoys, Beacons, Notices/Topmarks (Q9)/IALA Topmarks/IALA-B Lateral Topmarks/Preferred Channel to Port Topmark

standardize "cone, point up" with comma everywhere seems to me interesting.
