Hello from danbag

I am working with OpenStreet and with OpenSea. I am a beginner....
but I not a beginner in the sea navigation: I was in Greenland and to Cabo de Hornos.
My blog is : http://shaulatre.blogspot.it.
I write in Cruiserwiki and here some posts:
http://www.cruiserswiki.org/wiki/Meteo_mail
http://www.cruiserswiki.org/wiki/Meteo_ … RE_ISLANDS
http://www.cruiserswiki.org/wiki/Trans- … pe_Passage
http://www.cruiserswiki.org/wiki/Mar_de … le_Channel
http://www.cruiserswiki.org/wiki/CIRCUI … _DE_HORNOS

Now I have in OpenSea inserted some place, information, coastal lines ecc ecc in the Cabo de Hornos area.
If here some expert go with OpenSea to that zone to check my work I will appreciate. In particular the Puerto Toro village coordinates 55° 05' Sud 67° 04.5'W and near Isla Lennox, Isla Wallaston and Isla Hornos.

..and I have a question: how to see the information that I write in the OpenSea charts ? It seems to me there is no possibility to activate some information like in OpenStreet.

I am a little bit confused about the term OpenSea.
Did you mean OpenStreetMap? You inserted the information via JOSM (https://josm.openstreetmap.de/), didn't you?
I found your user profile at OpenStreetMap: http://www.openstreetmap.org/user/danbag big_smile

I am not an expert at mapping but from my point of view your edits look good.

Unfortinuatelly we currently do not have an interactive tool for exploring the map at http://map.openseamap.org
I am working on a new version of our online map. It will have that feature.

I noticed that you use the seamark:* tags for some objects. If they apply to the conventions (http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Seamarks) they should be visible on our seamarks layer.
I currently do not have the time to check that in detail.
At least some signs are visible here: http://map.openseamap.org/?zoom=15&lat= … FFFFFFFFFF

Axel

Re: Hello from danbag

Hi Alex
thanks for the quick answer
Yes I insert my contribution via JOSM
BOTH in OpenStreet and in OpenSea
I use the same profile in the two Open systems: http://www.openstreetmap.org/user/danbag
I understand that there is not an interactive tool for OpenSea
About the seamark I use, they are inside the SeaMapEditor plugin version 31772 and I use the Presets Tag provided INSIDE JOSM
The problem is: if I write some information about the bottom in a Seamark:anchorage:category Seamark:information .. for example "mud good holding" or "rock bad holding", how the users of the OpenSea can read this information on the map ?
