For situations when a road has already been mapped in OSM, but you visit it anyway and write down the road name, or get a tracklog along it.


checked_by=Username1,Username2 (if several people visit a feature)

That allows some measurement of dataset quality. It also means that if someone's contributors need to be deleted, then the roads that have been checked by other people might be allowed to remain.

Assume, you checked a road and put this tag on it. Later someone else moves the road to a place where it isn't but let's your tag intact. How do you want to make sure, that this doesn't happen? Else, I think, this tag is useless. --Kumakyoo 19:55, 27 April 2007 (BST)
