I am trying to improve the map for the area where I live.
OSM has many “localities” marked on the map, however, most of them are not really localities of any sort (they might have been, decades ago, but are no longer there).
For example, in this map:
You can see more than a dozen such localities, but only two of them are actual villages with buildings, people living in them, addresses etc.
I’m guessing the rest are some sort of past localities, but they aren’t there any more.
What should I do with them? They clutter the map and make it almost incomprehensible.
I would like to leave them on the map, but not as actual localities. What can I change them to?
