update openstreetmap.org but no result in mapbox or qwant or other map

Hello all,

Please tell me if i’m in the wrong forum.

I made some updates in OSM data as you can see: https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/94149250

My problem is, after weeks, i still can’t retrieve this new data in map providers like mapbox or qwant.
I use leaflet.js and mapbox as map provider to display maps on websites.

Should i use an other map provider ? which one ? btw openstreetmap.org could be a map provider ?

Thanks for any tips :wink:


If you want to display the OSM based map via tile graphics,

see the OSM wiki about https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tiles

What name is this, by the way?

I wasn’t sure what you meant at first, but then realized you must be commenting on the name tagged on the linked object.

@Fabrice Régnier, the name you’ve tagged on that building looks like a person’s name. With no other tags representing this building as a business of some kind, I have to assume this is a private residence and that this is the name of the occupant. This is something we never do for privacy reasons (plus, it seems unlikely that this is actually the name of the house, which is what this tag is indicating).

Can you tell us more about what goal you were trying to reach by adding this name? We may be able to suggest a better way to accomplish that goal.

Hello all and thank you for your messages.

@stephan75, I’ll have a deeper look in https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tiles#Base_maps but it seems it produces png or jpg ? That’s not my goal, i wanna display a map with a marker on it at the right adress (in France).

@alester, i totally agree with you, privacy should reign. So i deleted the name: https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/94149250

My goal is easy (to understand but not so easy to achieve ) :

I have a website on wich i display the localization of all people who noticed their adress in their account page, one map for one people.

ex: http://patrick-gueho.france-artisanat.fr/acces.html

To display the marker, i use leaflet.js with mapbox as map provider.
And to get the marker geolocalization (get the X/Y coords from the adress), i use the https://api-adresse.data.gouv.fr

ex: https://api-adresse.data.gouv.fr/search/?q=10+rue+Man%C3%A9+Er+Gro%C3%ABz+56550+Locoal-mendon

And the problem is that the marker i display is not at the right place. I would like it to be here: https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/94149250 or at least here: https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/261630343

I don’t know if my problem comes from the geocoding url (api-adresse.data.gouv.fr). What do you think ?

Sorry for my bad english, I hope, i’m clear enough.



No, you can’t delete information from OSM database, you can only hide it, but the name will be still available through the object’s history. You should get in touch with privacy@osmfoundation.org to have the name removed permanently from the database!

This is a task for DWG, we can do redactions which erase data permanently. Drop an e-mail to data@osmfoundation.org

@RicoElectrico: done, thank you! blush

I have redacted (=made invisible) the two versions of the way that contained a real name.

@woodpeck: ok, thank you.

Anyway, my problem remains the same, i’ll look for a cool geocoding tool.
