Are quarries shown as lakes?


The lake just west of the start point of the route shown at the URL above is not a lake. It's a quarry, which is mostly disused. How can the map be amended? Please compare Bing Maps and its Ordnance Survey layer at 53.791149, -1.801141

It has been a quarry in OpenStreetMap for 7 years.

You'll need to talk to the people who created the map with the error on it (Moovit). It is correct in OpenStreetMap.

I checked some quarries in my area on their map and they are all shown as water, so it's definitely an error in the Moovit map rendering.
