Remove Duplicate Waypoint

When submitting a Wayspot Appeal, make sure to include as much of the following information as possible:

  • Wayspot Title: Spanish War Veterans Memorial
  • Location (lat/lon): (41.60314, -93.686234)
  • City: Des Moines
  • Country: United States
  • Screenshot of the Rejection Email:
  • Additional Information *: Two POIs were submitted for basically the same thing, and one was in the wrong location. The listed waypoint above “Spanish War Veterans Memorial” is in the wrong location. It’s too far away from the real location to submit a location edit (tried getting it somewhat closer and was rejected), and I’ve submitted a duplicate waypoint in the app with “Spanish War Cannon” at (41.603830, -93.686666) and it’s been rejected. I guess they are technically different things, but right next to each other, as evidenced by pictures for both waypoints, and arguably part of the same memorial.

There’s no streetview but you can use the county’s aerial pictometry to see them best.

So I think the “Spanish War Veterans Memorial” just needs removed entirely, but at the very least it should be moved to like 5 feet from the other and then a moot point.

Thanks for the appeal, @claass. We took another look at the Wayspot “Spanish War Veterans Memorial” and made the necessary changes to Wayspot’s location. Hence, it does not meet our criteria for removal at this time.
