I thought I would try using the ArcGIS editor for OSM to add data to OSM based on some maps I have access to.
When I try and run Download and Symbolize OSM Data tool it doesn't work and I am not sure why.
The reason I am not sure why is not understanding the nature of the error and the instructions for using the tool are rather vague.
I am fairly sure it is something basic!
Any help would be welcome
Is it the GitHub documentation you are referring to? Documentation · Esri/arcgis-osm-editor Wiki · GitHub
for the 10.3.1 toolset? http://www.arcgis.com/home/item.html?id=75716d933f1c40a784243198e0dc11a1
Yes that's some of the documentation but when you click on "help" for the Download and Symbolize OSM Data tool to see why it didn't work the help is decidedly unhelpful.
My problem lies in downloading the osm data and why the tool doesn't work when using a perfectly respectable gdb. The GitHub instructions say "In the 'Target Feature Dataset', browse to the location of your default geodatabase, and then append the name of the new feature dataset that will be created when the model is run". So what I am not clear about is the "append the name of the new feature dataset" bit (Append, BTW, means adding something to the end of something). I just added a name "OSM" in the hope that the program would create the relevant files inside the gdb.
