Hello people,

I have noticed a label with a wrong name for a part of the Dutch town Nuth. There is a label with the name "Terstraten" but the correct name is "Tervoorst" (have lived several years in that neighborhood myself). The neigborhood that is called Terstraten is a little bit more to the south-west (and has not been labeled). At this point I do not have a clue how to correct this. Any tips?

Thanks! Theo.

Could you accept the answer if it worked for you? Thanks.

Fixing this could be somewhere between very simple and slightly advanced.

If the place is mapped with a "point" the best course of action would be to move it to the proper place, and create a new point where "Tervoorst" should be.

This is simple to do with the in-browser editor on, there is an intro that you should have a look at first, but making the edits is quite straightforward.

Actually there does seem to be a "Tervoorst" node.

Tervoorst is


Terstraten is

So you may simply have to move them to better positions.

(It would be more complicated if area objects were associated with the areas but that doesn't seem to be the case).

I have been able to make corrections, using the in-browser editor.

Thank you! Theo.
