Comments on Openstreetmap.org

Openstreetmap.org is the Wikipedia of online maps. In Europe and the USA the quality of the data is quite good. In other countries the peak data has many errors. In these areas additional data sources area used.

Please help to improve the Openstreetmap.org data. The following page describes how to add new peaks to Openstreetmap.org: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tk6qMcusWEs
