New to the groups, Inneed help on how to address a small error in the map. At a certain point, the Map shows a green (land) area while in fact it is blue (water). We know this is an error, since we use to boat there
Who can help to fix this? I am happy to send more specific data, af course.

The most common ways to report an error are
creating a note or adding a fixme. Keep in mind that there are sometimes +7 years old notes/fixmes if the area doesn’t have active users.
Or you could notify your local community, such as
Nederland (Netherlands) - OpenStreetMap Community Forum and maybe someone will fix it straight away.
The (nearly) whole point of OSM is that you can fix it yourself.
Now the specific case might be a bit more complex, so I would suggest providing a link to the area in question (zoom in to the location on
openstreetmap.org and then copy the URL).
a small error in the map
It would help to know which map and which location!
Thanks for the tips; I might contact the NL department.
This is the area:
OpenStreetMap Where the small centered green area with copy “Berkhout … … … … Avenhorn” says, it should be blue: you can boat here
So not of major importance, but if there is anyone who can fix this it might help others.
Indeed; this is exactly the area!
Well done, thanks! Now we can savely boat there again
