#18761 closed enhancement (fixed)

Obtain source from current layers: "gpx" does not - always - imply "survey"

Obtain source from current layers.

If I load a "gpx" as layer, it's just an assumption this implies "survey" is a source.

I can load a public "gpx" as reference for an Area I have never surveyed.

I - often - create a small track in BaseCamp, export it and Open in JOSM as to FIND the Location due for Editing. So I can find a specific set of Highways or Nodes or Area or whatever.
Again: I might have never been there.

IMO: "survey" is only a source, if and only if I specify my Changeset to be sourced by "survey".

fix #18761 - only consider source=survey for local GPX files, not the public ones

comment:3 Changed 9 months ago by AnkEric

Even a "local GPX file" (export from BaseCamp, or very old track) does not imply source="survey".

BaseCamp track is a often referring to a "planned trip". So no survey, yet!
Mapping only by Aerial Image, Mapillary, JOSM Validator.

I might use a three years old - private, local - track for review: Is OSM Map still oké? Because I plan to do the same trip again.
But after three years I cannot, should not set: source="survey"!

I am the only person who knows for a fact I did a survey and can specify "survey" as source for a Changeset.

This tag is just a suggestion. You're not forced to use it and still able to edit it. For most of users, a local GPX file corresponds to a survey.

Oké, I don't agree, but I rest my case...

I have to be very careful not to overestimate my own Changesets.
And "automatically obtain source" is no option - for me - since it's a "source of errors".

Is "survey" the best value for "gpx" ?

You should always check the source values as disabled layers are not included. This way you can get of the source value for gpx tracks.

Milestone 20.2 ?
