ఓపెన్ స్ట్రీట్ మ్యాప్ వారికీ ధన్యవాదములు Greetings to all,

భారతదేశపు సరిహద్దు, మరీ ముఖ్యముగా పాకిస్తాన్ - భారత సరిహద్దు, జమ్మూ వద్ద సరియైనది కాదు. (Boundary of India, mainly at Jammu i.e. Pakistan-India boundary is not so exact to belief.)

దీనిని సరియగు సరిహద్దుగా మాపింగ్ చేయమనవి...(Please map the correct boundary for the both nations).

ఈ సరిహద్దులు ఏ ఆదారంగా నిర్ణయించడమైనది..? (I would like to now on which basis the layer is prepared? ) మరియు ఏ విదంగా మేము ఈ సరిహద్దులను మార్చగలమో తెలుపగలరు..? (and Suggest me how to edit this boudnary..?)

Before you consider altering the border of India and Pakistan I would suggest that you read ALL of the following:

Such issues over disputed territories are inevitable in a worldwide set of map data. OpenStreetMap has always had a policy of mapping what is on the ground, and this policy has served us well in areas where territory is disputed.

In the case of India/Pakistan this means trying to accurately map the Line of Control: which reflects the reality of which country administers any part of the territory. Only edits which improve the accuracy of the LoC belong in OpenStreetMap. Territorial claims not matched by on-the-ground validation criteria are not something we map. Attempts to change borders to reflect such claims will be treated as vandalism.
