Common error messages

Building

Please accurately outline all the buildings you can find. The outline should be for the full size of the building even if it is partly covered by trees in the imagery. After drawing the outline, use the 's' key in the iD web editor to "square" the corners. If required, please go through the tutorial on building mapping. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E1YJV6I_rhY&list=PLb9506_-6FMHZ3nwn9heri3xjQKrSq1hN&index=7
