The main data source of the komoot map is the open source website OpenStreetMap (OSM).
If there is something missing or a mistake in the map, like for example a missing street, wrong access permission, or a street which is not accessible by bike, users can correct this by editing the respective part in OpenStreetMap.
Tip: If you’d like to edit it yourself, more information on how to do so can be found here: Improving the komoot map using OpenStreetMap.
If you don’t want to make the improvement yourself, you can report it to OpenStreetMap and an active OSM-mapper will look into it. Here's how you do it:
- Open OpenStreetMap.
- Search for the respective address or location and select it on the map.
- Click on the right side on the speech-bubble-icon “Add a note to the map”.
- This will open a note box where you can add your edit suggestion.
- Make sure that the pin icon marks the correct position.
- Then select “Add note” to submit.
Note: Notes on OpenStreetMap are always public. Don't enter personal information or information from copyright maps or directory listings.
The next time an OSM-mapper is editing this area, they will see your note and hopefully apply the edit. When an edit gets applied depends on the OpenStreetMap community in that area.
