OSM Rights of Way Tagging Errors in Isle of Wight

This page lists probable tagging errors in OSM Public Rights of Way data. Some may not be errors, so please check carefully before taking any action. Also note that the ways may not be located within the specified parish, but they have been found within the bounding box used for that parish. Duplicates are supressed, so each way is only shown once for each error.

Unparseable Right of Way name/number

The Right of Way name/reference in the prow_ref=* tag does not match the format defined for this county. False positives are to be expected from neighbouring counties that are not yet set up in this tool.

No errors of this type found.

Way not in named parish

The Right of Way does not appear to be located within the parish named in the prow_ref=* tag. This could be because the parish name is incorrect, or because the way is mis-located. The parish name must match exactly with what this tool things the name is, including capitalisation and hyphenation. There may be some errors in the tool's parish name data though, so I would advise against any bulk spelling changes without checking carefully first. False positives are to be expected from neighbouring counties that are not yet set up in this tool.

No errors of this type found.

Unknown Right of Way Number

The type and number combination in the prow_ref=* tag for this Right of Way not exist in Definitive Map and Statement for the named parish. This may be an error in the Map and Statement or an error in the tagging.

Total length of errors: 0.4 km

Missing or incorrect designation tag

The way either has no designation=* tag, or the tag that is present is not consistent with with the Right of Way type in the prow_ref=* tag. For ways that have multiple designations, separate the different values with semi-colons.

Total length of errors: 1.2 km

Missing highway tag

The way has no highway=* tag. This may be an oversight, or it may be because the route has not been survey on the ground yet. To indicate where the definitive line is not passable or not in use as a highway, I would suggest using highway=no. This will distinguish the latter case (surveyed and found to not be a highway) from the case of the correct highway type being as yet unknown.

No errors of this type found.

Missing prow_ref tag

A way has been tagged with an appropriate designation=* tag for a Public Right of Way, but there is no prow_ref=* tag to record the Right of Way number.
