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

Dear All, There is a problem in my area that I want to correct. It only shows in mapsforge but I still want to amend it. Unfortunately it seams to involve something too complex for a newbie like me. Relation 1862045 does not show forest west of http://www.openstreetmap.org/?lat=50.25837&lon=8.56586&zoom=16&layers=M Can someone help? Thanks for all your work Gotthard

You can browser the relation here http://www.openstreetmap.org/browse/relation/1862045 , you can also have a look at it on the map by following this link http://www.openstreetmap.org/?lat=50.25837&lon=8.56586&zoom=16&layers=M&relation=1862045 . I can't see any problems involving the relation itself, could you add more information detailing the problem?

I couldn't find any obvious error at the relation or its members.
Additionally I wouldn't assume the error being on OSM's side when the region is displayed correct for most clients and applications except one.

This relation has simply too many members (more than 275). Although editors and renderers probably can handle it, for a human to check correctness of this relation after an edit is ... . This relation should be at least halved to make it a little bit better maintainable.

Thank you all, for your remarks. The relation seems to be ok, the problem was caused by a problem of the renderer. Thanks again to all of you! Jgda
