    But I see what point you are making about what vegai said.

    Alright. I suppose I could try to find a forum somewhere or just use "Amazon's Choice".

    Wow thanks for the explanation. So basically the GPS trace overlay allows you to be sure the road line is where it is supposed to be?

    I read the bit about recording GPS tracks, and it seems like something that can be done passively by just driving around with it on. My cell phone's GPS is not that accurate and sometimes won't even connect, so what would you recommend for a good hand-held receiver that isn't too complicated to use?


    The changes I made to roads were only about 20% of what I did, so it shouldn't be too much for me to go back and try to fix.

    Also, I think they should add something to the iD tutorial about offsets in order to prevent stuff like this.

    Just made an account, downloaded Maps from F-Droid, and will definitely give it a try for navigating tomorrow. Looking around at a few popular areas in my town, it looks like there are very detailed park, parking area, etc outlines.

    I've already spent a few hours adding more businesses, moving roads that are very out of position, and fixing boundaries for areas like lakes and parking lots.

    Oh shoot I am so sorry. I saw that on Reddit a while ago. Looked it up now and it seems like they don't block it. Archive.is doesn't have their site set up right apparently.

    The article has no images, but there are two YouTube videos I added as links.

    I would have used archive.is, but it is blocked by misconfigured for Cloudflare DNS, so it wouldn't work for everyone. Archive.org shows the article briefly, but after the page loads it goes to a white page.

    Here is the archive.org page if you can make it work: https://web.archive.org/web/20191015010503/https://www.nytimes.com/2019/10/14/business/media/turkey-syria-kentucky-gun-range.html?emc=rss&partner=rss
