More questions - cleaning up the map and adding amenities, etc.

As I edit, I notice lots of isolated nodes that are on the map, have no attributes, and are not joined to anything. Should I clean things up by deleting these?

I’ve also started adding amenities (schools, churches, etc.) is that the right thing to do? Presumably these are nodes rather than areas, is that right?


You can safely delete those nodes, as they are probably the result of someones tests, faulty import script, etc. Only remove nodes that:

  • Have no properties (other then ‘created_by’)
  • Are not connected to any segments
  • When there has been no activity in your area by other mappers lately (see: Feeds and/or Render request history)
