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


I want to edit/delete existing incorrect osm data, how to do?

For eg: osm node id 5319598344 is incorrect, wants to edit the same.

PS: I want to contribute(add/edit/delete) more, which tool is so easy to do.(currently using http://www.openstreetmap.org/ )

Thank you for your interest in improving OpenStreetMap.

See https://www.openstreetmap.org/fixthemap Most of the time new contributors simply used the in-browser editor "iD" which is what you will get when you click the "Edit" button on openstreetmap.org as default.

Note: the node 5319598344 should clearly be moved to where ever the establishment is, not in the middle of the road.
