As part of on-going work to improve the quality of OpenStreetMap data, we recently used osmlint-osmium and osmlint for detecting issues related to road network data in Denmark. In total, there were 189 issues detected across 9 types of linters.

Our plan is to review detected issues in Denmark and fix any valid issues in OpenStreetMap.


We plan to start reviewing detected issues on this week [note:relative to 2021-07-28 ie. 2021-W30], and editing OpenStreetMap data to fix valid issues.


We will use existing OpenStreetMap editing tools, and using the #hashtag #mbx_linters_denmark

Editor: iD or JOSM

Satellite Imagery: Bing, Maxar, Esri

Street Level Imagery: Mapillary, Other open sources if available
