Yes, they are open to the public. There is a difference between “on the grounds of” and “within the fenced perimeter of”. All are on the grounds of their respective facilities and in the case of the National Naval Aviation Museum, it is within the fenced perimeter as well. In the case of some the hangers at the National Museum of the United States Air Force, over time, they have been within the fenced perimeter but with the doors that open onto the grounds locked to public exit.
Please, revert your changes and then put in the correct data.
The National Museum of the United States Army will be located on 40 acres at Fort Belvoir, Virginia, 20 miles south of Washington, D.C.
The General George Patton Museum of Leadership is located on Fort Knox, Kentucky.
Remove + draw a new polygon is considered a bad practice, as this breaks the history of things. It is much better to refine the existing polygon. This might sometimes be difficult to do, but e.g. JOSM has a utils2plugin which has a Replace Geometry command. This allows you to draw a new polygon and then replace the old one with the new one without breaking the history.
When I try to use JOSM tool, I get “Editing failed - make sure JOSM or Merkaartor is loaded and the remote control option is enabled”
Been trying to enable it, however can’t figure out how.
The polygon is too big to where if I zoom out to edit it, says I must zoom in to edit. So broke that area into smaller polygons so can edit them.
I don’t see any of it in effect, so guess it doesn’t matter.
On the map there is no distinction between the Air Force Museum (open to the public) and Area B (not open to the public), I don’t think that is ok, people who look at that map aren’t going to look up the landuse=military description, they will just see an area they think they don’t have access to.
No, you didn’t. I don’t know what “Area B” is, but there are no landuse=military objects in that area. In fact, there are no objects in that area representing the Wright-Patterson Air Force Base. You did add a leisure=park area around the museum, but that seems unlikely based on the information provided by OverThere.
Please don’t edit the map based on how you think things should look on one particular map rendering. You should be mapping things such that they represent the situation that exists on-the-ground. If the museum is on the military land as stated by OverThere, then that land should be marked as landuse=military. At the very least, the area representing Wright-Patterson Air Force Base should be mapped as landuse=military. Removing that simply because you don’t like the way it looks on one particular map rendering could be considered vandalism. If there are areas that aren’t open to the public, that can be indicated by walls, fences, gates, and access tags on road objects.
That red grid sends a strong visual message of “stay out”. What ultimately matters are the tagging standards, sure, but it’s not at all surprising that someone viewing the Carto map style would interpret the rendering that way.
