@kanan-aghayev, as mentioned above, it takes some time for the changes to be available in our application as well. Maps are not updated there in real-time with OSM.
The map will be updated in one of the future updates.
Thank you for your understanding.
@petra-pik how you measure sometime? I saw map of Azerbaijan reflected in the Windy application wrongly since the date I installed it about year ago. Maps on the OSM maps updated at least 3-4 months ago. So when you say "takes sometime", what you use to measure it? a week? a month? a year?
if you keep trolling us around with this question, you may get banned from this forum !
@idefix37 Where did you see trolling? I am asking on full serious. I have no intention to troll. If you have intention to help me then please help me, if you don't let others do that.
@idefix37 This is not correct approach. I visit windy to see weather conditions. Now I want place where I live to be reflected correctly. If borders and name tags are not import why to show them at all? lets do map without any borders and names on it? So both borders and location names are important.
What I am talking It is not only about borders, it is also about province names, cities names are missing or written incorrectly. Why you are so aggressive?
Why we are so aggressive? Because we are fed up with this question of borders and location names in your area. I dont think you are visiting Windy for weather but just for controversy. Windy may decide to update the map not before 3 or 6 months but until that, stop any further discussion about this question. OK?
@idefix37 I am using Windy for a long time and even bought premium subscription. So sad to hear that you "fed up" with request of your customers to fix issues they face with. And it is very easy fix, you can just update outdated locations to match with OSM.
I personally suspect that you or someone in your team has personal interest to keep this part of map not updated to fix realities. Otherwise i can not understand why it is still not fixed, if as you said, this issues were raised several times.

@kanan-aghayev, I am sorry you feel this way. We visualize weather forecast data, we are not politicians nor we do have any interest to keep parts of the map intentionally incorrect.
We are s small team and we have to decide carefully on which features we want to focus on. For example, we have recently added a new forecast model.
As mentioned above, we are aware of these locations around the world and the changes will be reflected in our base maps. But right now, I am not able to tell you when.
Thank you for your understanding.
I don't see any Premium batch by your profile so it is possible that you haven't activated it yet. To access your Premium features, follow the steps in this manual: https://community.windy.com/topic/11832/what-to-do-if-you-can-t-access-your-windy-premium-features.
@petra-pik I use apple id for premium. I see your point. But I am not talking pure politics.
Current issues are bigger. Like border between Armenia and Azerbaijan missing completely. Some cities and provinces missing completely.
if we go in political way - the best way to be politically neutral is to reflect both names. Official name and how it called by other people. At least this can be done to please both sides. it will be right and fear.
You say that you dont want to be involved into politics, but then on Windy
you show territories of Azerbaijan which controlled by Azerbaijan incorrectly. then this is natural that people are not happy with this and they raise their concern. No one come here to troll or whatsoever, I am busy person and have better things to do.
The best way to stay away from politics is to fix this issues as I proposed above and close this question.
I know that you have limited resources, but i can offer my help if i can help with anything.
BTW, how I can create Azerbaijan section on the forum?
