My name is Florian Lohoff i am living in Rheda-Wiedenbrück, Germany. I am mapping mostly around Ostwestfalen-Lippe as i lived in a couple of places which i know. I am interested in the Countryside more than the citys. I am a long term contributer and map addresses aswell.

I am in love with Madagaskar and have been on a visit there and did some mapping.

I consider my HDYC Profile to be public:

How i tag

  • Roundabouts - There shouldnt be a ref or name tag on a junction=roundabout way as long as those are informations of the _roundabout_ and not some random street joining the roundabout. The roundabout is IMHO not part of a particular street but rather the junction itself. Nobody would put a name or ref tag on a normal street junction node so why do you do so on roundabouts. There are exceptions where roundabouts themselfes have names or refs - that information should be on the roundabouts way.
  • unclassified vs track grade 1 - Everything accessible for the public in the countryside is unclassified as long as its not purely for agricultural usage e.g. a "cul de sac" towards farmland. As soon as there are people living at that street, the Postman, Waste collection a school bus_stop is on the street it can't be a track grade1 as thatsfor purely agricultural usage.
  • I dont use address interpolation but only single set nodes. As the OpenRouteService shows interpolation is possible without explicit interpolation.
