Edit a house number

1 Pre-conditions

Before editing house numbers, make sure that some pre-conditions are set up:

1) You must be at zoom level 18 or higher.

2) The house number layer is activated.

  • Activate the house number layer by opening the “Edit toolbar” and clicking on the “House numbers” checkbox.

3) A road name must be present on the road segment for house number addition. If the road segment is unnamed or needs to be changed to reflect reality then go to the “Road attributes” menu and perform the appropriate road name edits first.

Tip:

  • When working on house numbers you should avoid having the place layer activated at the same time. When both layers are activated then your map view can be overloaded with too many stacked icons and information.
