It looks a few shades different to water but similar. It also doesn't change with valley or relative terrain:

There are 3 of them around Stanage Edge with the centre of one being at 53 21’ 05”N 001 37’ 21”W

I can't see anything different on sat view

Hi Andrew,

Congratulations ? You have discovered a terrain bug. The terrain data seems to be missing for this triangle.

Screenshot 2021 03 26 at 16.43.55

I have alerted Rob to fix this in the next data build. If you find more, feel free to share here.

 

Cheers,
Tim

Tim, that screenshot is not from the UK, it's a few hundred miles off the location that Andrew specified 😉

 

Andrew, those "light blueish gray" areas is wetland. Try toggling off maplayer->geo->wetland, you will see them disappear then.

Ah ok. In which case I think that one might be wrong. Looking at the areas that I know and that area is right on the side of the edge and not particularly wet. I've been and looked at the areas where I am usually running up to my knees in marshy bogs and it's shown as normal ground.

I don't know if you have any control over these areas or if they are auto-generated.

It also doesn't particularly matter!
