I have started editing the map data in my area (, mostly adding/correcting some of the many footpaths.

However, I have an olive grove for which I have added a lot more detail in JOSM: terrace walls, stairways, sheds, ramps etc. This is a lot more detail than the surrounding areas and is mostly only of interest to me... although my land is open access and walkers do pass through it. Everything I have added is physically present and often visible in the imagery.

So should I upload this to OSM? Should I upload and ask for a review (how do I do that from JOSM?)

Yes, please add as much detail that you feel comfortable doing. I am part of the group doing curb cutouts and sidewalks. I also have fund with railways, switches, derails, signals, individual trees. I see so much and know that I will never get to map it all.
