Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?


why are not all object (like supermakets) from the "current online map" are shown in the online editor?

I just added 3 supermarkets in the editor and recognized that they where already on the current map, but not shown in the editor! ...i deleted my entries again.

The editor should always be up-to-date, so my guess is that you did not look carefully enough. A supermarket may have been added as a node, a building, an area, a relation etc.

Another, maybe less likely, reason may be that the supermarkets you saw on the map had already been deleted by someone when you entered the editor.

If you supply links to the supermarket objects or the map where the problem occurred it may be easier for someone to give you a more authoritative answer.
