Caimito Beach Hotel is not in Ichon

Is not in Ichon Macrohon.

It is in Pasay, Maasin City

The border is some 100M south of our property. I did note that you took the outline of the property directly from Google Maps (which I myself drew on Google maps).

I do not have the skill or the time to learn the skill to draw out the borders of Maasin City. Pasay is a barangay within Maasin City. All these borders are clearly visible in Google Maps For Pasay: and for the whole of Maasin City: If the borders do not show up in my links, just do search for same.

Regards Pascal canning Owner of Caimito Beach Hotel

I'm unable to find the property outline you mention but I hope that it was not copied from google maps and was traced independently.

We are unable to copy any data from google maps as that would be a copyright violation.

Hi Dwain It doesn't matter to me because it was just a rough sketch I did myself. Will do an accurate one another time and send it to you.

So can you change the address of my property to read: 'Pasay, Maasin, Southern Leyte'

Why was the ticket closed without even addressing the error on the map? Also I do not think it is trivial that you list our property not only in the wrong Barangay, but also in the wrong City/Munisipality?

Regards Pascal

Because this is a data error and you opened a bug against the nominatim software package. OpenStreetMap is a wiki data set - we don't except bugs for data.

Thank you it would have been nice if you pointed that out to me on the first occasion. Thankyou all the same. Forwarding to wiki component

You could file a "bug" on openstreetbugs ( but if you want it to get fixed soon, you will have to do it yourself, or find someone to do it for you. OSM is not commercial, there is no one paid to correct data for you.

There are no boundary polygons on city level in your region, so doing this will be quite a bit of work! alternatively, you could use the is_in tag on the hotel, to place it in the right city.

You got all this a bit wrong. This is not something that belongs in trac entirely. Trac is only for software. Sorry for the confusion
