  • There are really fences around each private property?
  • landuse seems to be used in a duplicated way.
  • in comment or source tag you should have mentioned the location of the import discussion.

Could you please link the sources and discussion of the import for those people who are interested?

Excellent work. I imagine the neighbouring towns/village can be done next.

Although beware posting publicly on imports as you the face the wrath of the vocal anti-import brigade.

Pardon that I was asking for sources and discussion. Is this import at least made with public domain data?

Yes, is public domain, I have the data based on request made to the local autorities for the Urbanistic General Plan of the city, in base of the romanian law 544/2001

And also on HCL 2701 that state that Urbanistic General Plan is a information of public interest.

There are not really fences of every property, but i did not find a better way to add the different land that every person own.

Thank you, very kind of you! :-)

Hmm, but fences where there are no (or not always) fences seems not the best idea (e.g. it is bad for navigation without gps - imagine you stay in front of all the buildings and search for the fences which your map shows). I guess there may be some tagging scheme for private ground boundaries. This is such a thing which could be discussed before an import (on mailinglist, forum, wiki or, well, if Romania prefers this, facebook). And then linked in the changeset comment, so everybody knows what's going on.
