HI

We used carto data for generate tiles.

But it shows AndhraPradesh & Telungana as a single state.(Actually these are two different states in India).

How to update my carto data? Also how to get latest carto data?

Can you explain what you mean by "We used carto data"? There are both companies and map styles (and probably much more) called that.

@SomeoneElse Oh! Sorry I wrongly understood as carto is a separate data which was used for show borders/regions. Now i understand as carto is a tool which will parse osm data then generate a boundary data and stored in DB, while tiles generation we can use this boundary data for show regions(only in land not in sea). right?

Also now i tried with latest OSM data for india, but there is no seperate region/border for Telungana & AndhraPradesh. How can we update state regions in OSM?

We've had Telangana in our databases since before it was officially a separate state

So either you're using a seperate databases for borders which is out of date, or your update failed.

@joost schouppe : Thanks for your reply. Yes my data not updated properly. How to update this carto data? I am doing as 1.delete carto_boundary table, 2.generate carto_boundary.sql, 3.exec psql -f carto_boundary.sql -d <db_name>. Is it correct ?

"carto is a tool which will parse osm data then generate a boundary data and stored in DB, while tiles generation we can use this boundary data" is mostly correct. Actually it's a bit more complicated than that, due to the history of what happened with OSM's "standard" style.

The second part " while tiles generation we can use this boundary data for show regions(only in land not in sea)" has actually been answer elsewhere (someone else asked a similar quesion):
