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


I have discovered today that user: aburo deleted a large amount of data in Changeset: 24600589 (98 ways / 8025 nodes). I haven't been able to see what has actually been deleted. I have noticed that a large area of sand dunes, which I pain stakingly added about a year ago is included in this delete. I have contacted the user by PM to find out why but have not had a response as yet.

I have tried to revert some of these changes but without much success. I can't seem to get the undelete or reverter plugins to work in JOSM. I have managed to restore 2 ways (areas natural=sand) using Potlatch 1, but I also managed to restore 2 other ways that were not areas.

How would one go about seeing what this changeset represents visually so that objective decisions can be made about which data to restore?

Thanks, Shaun

Normally I'd suggest the OSM History Viewer but that has a problem with that changeset.

Achavi however seems more successful.
