    p.s.: Another very good starting point is crisis mapping. http://hot.openstreetmap.org. It’s very easy, and you can save lifes. When the taifun was hitting the Philipins last year, we mapped the whole region touched in a day and greatly supported the rescue teams.

    Currently, there is a crisis mapping in Guniea on the Ebola virus going on. In the hour spent discssuing this zebra in Nice, you can map several villages and roads in between and possible save lifes!

    so please: start here: http://tasks.hotosm.org/project/568

    I am retyping a message I wrote over one hour ago because the site would not react and the message was lost after it came back. I am NOT happy.

    First to Xomtor: Thanks for trying to help. I’m sorry to say however, that we are talking about two different things.

    When I chose to make a line, I then used the option “foot path” as it seemed the closest to the situation. Once I chose that, several fields opened on the left side. They included lit and width. Neither of those are tags. They are fields.

    Secondly, there is no option to include traffic light.

    It seems to me there should be a type of line called a crosswalk. I used foot path because nothing else came close.

    To you both: I understand what a project like this is. I have also worked on Wikipedia. But, unlike Open Street Map, when Wikipedia decided to add different, specialised areas of interest, they made new sites. So, today, we’ve got Wiktionary, Wikivoyage, Wikimedia, etc. Open Street Map, continues to add new areas of interest, new tags, all without separating into specialised sites.

    The entrance requirement to Open Street Map seems to me to be too high. There is a lot to learn and, with that knowledge, you’d be able to do what? Edit Open Street Map? Sorry, I’m not interested in starting a new hobby at this point. If they ever get to the point where anyone can edit it without any knowledge of tags and other esoteric things, let me know and I’ll take another look.

    In the meantime, I’ll follow GeoMagick’s advice and ask someone there to fix an error.
