    Strange comment in the sea off Fiji?
    I’m not complaining just checking to see if I am doing something wrong :)

    Hi Pat,

    the mapper set his notes in the NAME tag + natural=water
    Its a reef, I edited these two objects (natural=reef), next update the iceberg near Fiji :-))) will disappear.
    However, reefs are not displayed in OAM-maps, cause 99% of the reefs are not mapped and OSM in general is not safe for skippers.

    Best regards

    Thanks, Christian!
    I thought that the Antarctic Ice-Shelf break had headed to Fiji rather quickly!
    Nearby, I found more comments. I don’t know if they are intentional or not. (and a possible misspelling)

    Mantray Dive Shop (probably should be Mantaray Dive Shop which a search can’t find at present)
    (Yasawa Islands)
    As usual, only for your information. Not complaining about your wonderful maps :)

    I’m 100% shure that notes are tagged under NAME – again.
    Usually such notes should be tagged under “fixme” or “note”
    Some Mappers dont read the OSM Wiki. ;-)

    Well, its easy to clear these mistaggings.
    Its not _that_ complicated, in fact clearing names and notes (or adding POIs like dive shops) is dead easy.

    Here you have a good starting point:

    As Editor I _strongly_ recommend JOSM:

    When you add information to this database it will appear in the next update of OpenAndroMaps.

    Best regards
