Bug when editing a waymark

Recommended Posts

I recently noticed a typo is someone else's waymark and decided to correct it. I just changed one letter in the Name and Quick Description field, but when I hit the "Update Waymark" button, the website asked for a reason for changing the waymark's coordinates(!). I made a few tests and the coordinates have always been slightly modified by the system (for example "16.469" becomes "16.4688"). I'm not sure whether this is a new bug, because it was the first time ever that I edited a waymark that is not mine.

It's always been like that. The database stores it in different units than we enter it , and there are rounding errors in the calculation. I don't think the difference is more than a few inches, but I never sat down and looked at it.

GT.US is right, but there are also some other fields (text) that show this behaviour sometimes. Just add something like "no change" to the reason field. Most officers are familiar with this bug.
