Please could someone explain why about 25% of the buildings are not showing on this map of Central London (eg between Hyde Park and the Thames). I have just downloaded the data, as a shapefile, and styled the buildings purple.
I am fairly new to QGIS (and to Stacexchange). The map was produced by:
- downloading the data as a Shapefile from mapzen.com
- using Layer>Add Vector Layer to add the shapefile to the project
- selecting the Buildings layer and changing the style to purple.
I would like to know how to show all the buildings.
[Note: I have tried several ways of making a map with OSM data (Geofabrik, OSM download etc) and am finding that each method has problems I can't resolve. My previous GIS experience was with ArcView, quite a long time ago, and I do not remember problems of this type].
