Where report missing data category in John Thorp USGS maps?

The John Thorp USGS map for Washington State (downloaded 11.Apr.21) is missing stairways, leaving gaps in trails that include stairways.

The stairways do not show up with either John Thorp's "US_Style" or Locus "Hike & Bike" (and others).

The stairways do show up in LoMap and OAM, with either John Thorp's "US_Style" or Locus "Hike & Bike" (and others).

The location shown in the two zoomed-in views is in the upper left of the zoomed out Seattle view, between "Metum" and the GPS locator (my house). The coordinates are in the upper bar.

Hi Alan,

thank you for the post. The JohnThorn maps are created from a combination of OpenStreetMap (OSM) data, USGS, and US Forrest data.

In case that some data are missing in LoMaps or OAM, the data are very likely missing also in OSM. In such a situation I'd like to kindly ask you to create a new OSM Note - this is the tool for reporting errors to other mappers. Please see https://docs.locusmap.eu/doku.php?id=manual:user_guide:maps_tools:osm_notes#report_a_new_note

The OSM is a community project where everybody can join and become a mapper. Please see https://docs.locusmap.eu/doku.php?id=manual:user_guide:maps_tools:osm_notes#report_a_new_note if you're interested.

Thank you

Petr
