@_slack_hotosm_U01JQ86DN65:matrix.orgDolly Hi. The limit of the task is the grey polygon, although JOSM downloads all data within the bounding box of that limit 13:34:01

@_slack_hotosm_ULPKSCD47:matrix.orgmartien Hi Gilles i would say the boundaries the TM show are leading. What JOSM makes out of that is i think due to technical limitations of JOSM. 09:12:31

@_slack_hotosm_U01AGHDCC57:matrix.orgGilles Ok, thanks both for the feedback. I have checked up a number of tiles around the perimeter of project 14311 it seems that when the tile shape area is more or less rectangular, Josm displays only the area to map, when the tile is of an irregular shape then Josm has a problem and displays a full tile, as you pointed out Martien. So in case of an irregular shape, we just "estimate" what area is required to map. 22:46:38

@_slack_hotosm_ULPKSCD47:matrix.orgmartien I regularly see, and that seems the case here also, that the irregular shape is following an admin boundary. So that can help in determining where the actual task boundary is when using JOSM in this situation. 08:16:01
@vorpalblade77-kaart:matrix.orgTaylor Smock

The OSM API only takes bounding boxes to download, in the form of left,bottom,right,top.
As such, the remote control command to download data into JOSM essentially takes the parameters and passes them on to the OSM API.
If the TM wants to restrict editing to solely within the task area, one of two things would need to happen with irregularly shaped tasks:

  1. Many separate calls to load smaller and smaller bboxes (such that a minimal amount of data is downloaded outside the task area)
  2. Someone would need to write a plugin for the TM for JOSM that downloads the bbox, but then "hides" the area outside of the task polygon.

@_slack_hotosm_U044FGE1D5W:matrix.orgJf L I completed a mapping but I cannot submit my task and HOT seems to be blocked right now. 10:22:55
@_slack_hotosm_U044FGE1D5W:matrix.orgJf L Well I closed HOT and restarted a session. Hopefully, I see that my work was taken into account by HOT 10:25:31
