Mapping monuments to OSM

Posted by Kartik Mistry on 22 June 2017 in English (English)

So, I've started mapping monuments from https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Monuments_of_National_Importance_in_Gujarat to OSM. I guess this will be good start for newbie like me.

Feel free to give suggestions to make work faster and efficient!

Looks good so far! Do you know about HistOSM which displays historic items from OSM? Remember you can always add many languages to OSM, and include more than just the english name.

There are some additional tags for recognized heritage sites, which could be used to easily combine data. https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:heritage#Tags_to_use_in_combination

But this is optional, so no need to worry about this too much.

I had checked/added coords based on that ISRO Bhuvan map. But in process I had varified correct coordinates. Do add Wikidata item if present.
