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


I just edited the features in a school. When I look at it on the standard map, it looks fine as long as I am zoomed out. But when I zoom in to the maximum zoom level or even one level above the maximum zoom level, most of the features I added disappear and some of appear distorted or clipped. I was wondering what the cause of the issue was and if there was some way to fix it. The location of the school is 37.85775,-122.26273. I have attached an image of the issue below. This is what it looks like zoomed out:

The tiles for the different zoom levels don't always get regenerated at exactly the same rate. So it's quite common to see odd things happening when you zoom in and out a short time after making a change. (It's also worth checking that you don't have old tiles in your local cache, but I think in this example that's probably not the issue). A little bit of patience should see everything sorted out.
