#12561 closed enhancement (fixed)

Warn before uploading huge features (especially buildings)

Keywords: buildings, size Cc:


JOSM should warn before uploading huge buildings.

See for example changeset and german forum discussion at .

There is a warning for very large segments, but this should be clarified when the feature is an area feature or especially a building.

According to List_of_largest_buildings_in_the_world, the largest building in the world is Boeing Everett Factory with 398.000 m²: osmwww:way/26996005

So the limit is easy to implement :)

No in fact the largest one is wikipedia:Aalsmeer_Flower_Auction with 518.000 m² - osmwww:way/271575968

Can it also warn about too long buildings (one side of it)? I've seen a deformed one with several km in length.
It could sneak by this new area test if the other side was only several meters long (as is usual).
