In an area where I did a lot of mapping recently, I’ve just noticed that a section of a major highway is now missing (the N164 on the link above). I’m sure the deletion was accidental, whoever did it, but I honestly have no idea at the moment whether I’m responsible or not!
Couple of questions then:
— is it possible to find who deleted that particular way?
— is it possible to roll back the deletion and recover the way as it was before?
And in each case, “How?”
I know how to find the history of an existing way using Potlatch, but not one that’s been deleted. Either instructions or a link to instructions would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance.
[Closer inspection reveals that (a) the way appears to have been transformed into a series of unconnected, tagless nodes, and (b) there are a whole group of tightly packed GPS traces for that bit of road, so it won’t be at all difficult to re-trace the road to repair the damage on this occasion. However, I would still like to learn about deleted items, so please do post answers to the above questions if you can. Thanks.
I suppose a third question springs to mind — can you suggest how or why a way might have been transformed into a series of nodes like that?]
