Have you mapped Manchester?

Hi, I was mapping Hulme, Manchester, and found that the name of a street is recorded wrongly in OSM. Such mistakes happen, but I found that the wrong name was also recorded by Google Maps which made me want to ask you where you got the name of the street "Archway" in Hulme, Manchester. Best, --Farzaneh 11:35, 22 April 2008 (UTC).

 That was a few months ago; I think I may have got confused and that the whole area around the arch is known as archway. It looks like historically, there was an archway as part of Hulme Hall Manor, and certainly some addresses along that road are given as Turing House, Archway, Hulme, Manchester. If there are now decent street signs (it was under 'regeneration' when I was there), that say otherwise, I'd be inclined to believe them.

Hi, just wanted to let you know that I've figured out how to get osmarender to draw churches etc. I need to polish it up a bit but when I'm happy with it I'll put it up on the wiki. 80n 22:00, 9 Apr 2006 (UTC)


Hi, User:Bruce89 has sugessted to change the value for the Proposed_features/Pedestrianised_road from pedistrian to precint. So I think its the best to start a new voting period. Can you please go to that page and vote again? Sven Anders 11:34, 20 September 2006 (BST)

How did it go with DAFIF

Just saw your note on Potential_Datasources#DAFIF, I wondered if you have an update... Erik Johansson 14:47, 29 March 2008 (UTC)

Help mapping NW London

Hi, I'm a NW2 resident and would like to do some mapping but need some hand-holding to begin with. Got a GPS and bike, so should be all set! --apapadop 11:01, 16 February 2011 (UTC)
