yesterday someone changed the admin levels of Aruba, Curacao and Saint Martins from 3 to 2. That means, he changed them from parts of NL to autonome countries.
I think, that is totally wrong. Or have there been any legal changes, i don’t know about?
btw: i can revert those changes if i should do.
This user has also added roads on Antartica tagged as motorway and named “Footway”… his 82 changesets need careful review I would suggest…
at first i would like to revert the boundaries. ok?
Yes, please go ahead with your revert.
With regard to the specific issue of Netherlands boundaries, I’ve said this:
Am I the only one who thinks it strange that international admin boundaries are being discussed so intensively on a German forum?
No, that’s not strange - it’s just historic. May be, it’s better i switch to the international forum?
But which one? “Questions and Answers” is for newbies, i think. The other one could be “General Chat” - not very good too. any suggestions?
user “SomeoneElse” reverted all CS of that user, i think.
Curaçao is an autonomous island that is part of the Netherlands. In 10-10 2010 the Netherlands Antilles ceased to exist and address desciption of Curacao changed.
It used to be like this Street name + number, Willemstad, Curacao, Netherlands Antilles.
But after 10-10-2010 it became like this
Streetname + number, Willemstad, Curacao
However, for some reason in OSM Curacao is seen as NL. This is not correct. The Nominitem Geocoder shows 12.126031,-68.890388 as Van Engelenweg, Willemstad, 0000AA, NL.
This is definitely not right. We have no zip code here in Curaçao and NL should be CW.
Is there a way to change this?
