Something to think about. The tasking manager works quite well for
small areas but when the tiles get too large then OSM balks at the
What I have been doing recently is downloading an entire country,
cutting it up into chunks with OSMconvert then loading it into JOSM with
lots of memory.
It works very well. I can pick up all the highway=road in one shot,
drop them into a todo list then correct them one at a time. I have a
script that picks up duplicate buildings so the second can be deleted
again scrolling through them one at a time.
The other thing I can do and have been doing is to scroll through the
chunks looking for unmapped settlements using <Crtl><Down arrow> and
I've added a few missing settlement in. However when I do this in order
to keep scrolling in a straight line I don't always add in connecting
If the country download is less than a week old normally I don't get any
conflicts. If I do then the next download and search for crossing
highways or ways usually picks them out to be cleaned up.
Now I have an experienced mapper who is interested in connecting up the
settlements but they are running on a Mac so as far as I know OSMconvert
isn't available nor are my .bat files for creating chunks or loading
JOSM up with lots of memory.
I have created a much smaller chunk for him to play with and hopefully
that will work.
But any other suggestions?
Can we come up with a more generalised solution?
