Over the last week or two I have been working on prepping some All the Places data for import into OSM, following preliminary interest in the OSM US Slack #imports channel. I have limited the data to grocery store chains in the US only. This post is to formally solicit feedback and community approval before I proceed with importing the grocery store data only. Of particular note is that I do not plan to overwrite existing OSM key/value pairs except for the
brand:wikidata tag. I also do not plan to add, remove, or move OSM objects based on this import alone, but will create separate MapRoulette challenges to resolve those issues as I identify them.
I have documented my process for the import in much greater detail in the OSM wiki:
All the GeoJSON files I plan to use are available in my Github repository in the
/data folder here: atp-import. Github has a handy built-in GeoJSON viewer if you want to peruse quickly.
Much more information is available in the Wiki page but feel free to ask about anything I haven’t addressed. Two outstanding questions I’d appreciate feedback on, besides the usual:
- How large (geographically) are people comfortable with the changesets being, and are people comfortable with me uploading multiple brands within one changeset?
- How would people want me to notify the community as I move on to other commercial sectors (I have hotels planned next)? A new topic, or just new post in this thread?
