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


I am a beginner user. I found, that the street number of my living house was wrong. It was crosschanged with the neighbourhouse.

I changed it with the onlineeditor.

In the highest zoomlevel it now shows the correct streetnumber. But if zooming a little bit away from it, it shows the crosschanged wrong streetnumber again.

Must corrections be done for several zoomlevels?

Regards, Astrid

It takes a while for a change to be rendered on a map and each zoom level is basically a new map rendering. And different map sites that use OSM data have different update periods.

So if the change showed up an any zoom level, you've successfully made the update. Congratulations! Now it is simply a matter of waiting until all the various renditions of the data are updated.
