Hello, I am a professor in the Department of Earth Sciences at California University of Pennsylvania (35 miles southeast of Pittsburgh). I recently attended an OSM workshop at the Crisis Mapping Conference. It was great and I would like to hold a mapping party on my campus for my students to create the campus map on OSM in early 2013. However the edit I made to my campus at the workshop still has not shown up yet. Can someone tell me what I did wrong? Thanks

Looks like you created a way with no tags. You have put some tags on one node of that way, but the tags should be on the way itself.

Also note that you can rectify the building by either pressing 'Q' or using the rectangle-like tool in Potlatch 2.

There are some step-by-step howtos.

Hurray for organising mapping parties!

As a general answer to this kind of question see: Question: I have made edits but they don't show up on the map
