Hi Gadgetmts

Thank you for your contribution.
However, usually, we propose the contribution in a page hosted in our User: namespace. Then, after reviewing and approval of the community, we push the change on the Main namespace.

This is not a significant change and above that, this is somehow already validated as it comes from the Glossary, but keep this best practice in mind for your future contributions.

Re: Map tiles updates for deleted landmarks

Perhaps just deleting a landmark doesn't cause a tile update but when the landmark is immediately replaced by a new landmark covering the same tiles, there is no way to tell.

It would be worthwhile to test unless kentsmith9 or others know that this is already not the case. Lake St Clair would be a good candidate for anyone with beta editor and CM rights.

[New Page] Map tiles

Postby davielde » Mon Mar 24, 2014 2:42 am

With regard to landmarks, here is an interesting screenshot that I took today. There used to be a rather large landmark for a state recreation area covering a few tiles in addition to this one, but looking in the editor, the landmark was recently deleted either just before the freeze or perhaps in the beta editor since the freeze. In the app, this tile-sized and tile-shaped remnant exists even when I manually refresh the map data, and I can even see it on separate devices as well. In LiveMap, however, nothing appears, consistent with the landmark deletion.

Is there a chance that when a landmark is added or edited, only the tiles that actually have geometry nodes (or perhaps even just the center point of the polygon) have an update triggered? If what I have here is what I think it is, tiles simply "covered" by large landmarks are not updated when the landmark changes. There are only a few road segments in that area, and none of them have been touched since November, so nothing recently has prompted a tile update.
