I had posted the following question in the local Thai users group, but without a solution as yet…
In Laos, there has been a number of imports of waterways where I’m presuming, an error has caused the waterway to be plotted with every node on the way, having another single node on top, which carries no tags or relations. One example here :
http://www.openstreetmap.org/edit?way=1 … /102.51982 then Zoom out to see the extent of the problem.
I know these untagged nodes do not cause harm, but they are irritating when editing. In Potlatch2 its not easy to delete in bulk so can anyone help with either writing a script to do the job, or suggest an easy way.
At present in P2, I can highlight multiple nodes, de-select any ways, then move them to an area for deletion … but then it will only allow me to delete one node at a time !
While I appreciate its probably not a burning issue, these untagged nodes will probably stay there for ever unless dealt with. So, as my experience is limited to the P2 editor, can someone assist with a quick remedy to this issue, either for me, or to implement on my behalf ?
The full thread is here :
I did a little experimenting. In JOSM, this would be straightforward. Search (Ctrl+F) for:
type:node -child -untagged -name
Scroll through the resulting list to make sure nothing got accidentally included that shouldn’t, select all, then hit Delete.
Coincidentally, Laos is at the top of my places-to-visit list. Been checking airfares and devouring guidebooks. Thanks in advance for all the mapping!
As the original mapper is still active, the first thing you should have done is left a comment on the changeset that created them and allowed a reasonable time for the mapper to explain or fix them.
