Thanks. That is a good addition.
Before I go on, let me mention that we’re now mixing up the discussion about using
bin=yes as per your Wiki edit.
See below. My gripe with your answer was that you phrased it as a fact. But I’m sure I have fallen victim to such phrasing as well, so we don’t have to engage in that discussion.
In my experience,
bin=yes is used as I have described it in my last comment (“Is there a bin nearby”). So from the data, I would not be able to reliably determine, whether there is a bin that is part of a bus stop, or if there happens to be a bin 10 meters away. Perhaps that level of detail is achieved elsewhere, but that would actually surprise me. Switching to
bin=separate wouldn’t improve the situation, but it would also not remove information. But going forward, it allows to improve the data. However: Your change in the Wiki effectively achieves the same. It’s just not using the word separate.
If StreetComplete asked whether the bin — that is mapped 20 meters next to a bus stop with
bin=yes — is a duplicate or, preferably, asked how many bins there are, I doubt it would take decades to get better data.
Yes, of course. There are only two cases. Either it’s a duplicate or it isn’t. If we are only considering one case, then we don’t need to make any distinction in the data.
Unfortunately, I don’t understand what you mean. As for proximity and double counting: Couldn’t that be solved similarly to what I suggested above; i.e., “Is there already an object with
bin=yes in the vicinity?”. Perhaps I misunderstood you.
bin=yes means that there is a bin and that bin is also mapped separately, then, yes it is, by definition, a duplicate information. I’m not opposed to that per se: With your edit of the Wiki, it is clear that by using
bin=yes, information is missing, which can be mapped additionally. In that sense,
bin=yes can serve as a simplification for a mapper and for an algorithm (if
bin=yes is set, the algorithm doesn’t have to look around if there is a bin mapped close by).
lit=yes on roads is an attribute of a path as opposed to a street lamp, which is only a node. Judging by a street lamp node how effective it illuminates a road, is a lot of guesswork. So
lit=yes on the entire way actually gives additional information. If it didn’t, then yes, it would be a duplicate.
