Massachusetts town and county boundary relations complete! about 2 years ago

Thanks, looking at the OSM wiki page on the "wikipedia" tag: http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Wikipedia it seems that it first mentions the "wikipedia=language:page title" format at the top, but later it refers to using the "wikipedia:lang=page title" format, for cases that don't seem different to the main use case. So this page seems to be the source of confusion.

In either case, feel free to fix or add the "wikipedia" tag where I've missed them. :)

Massachusetts town and county boundary relations complete! about 2 years ago

Thanks, I have been using the format "wikipedia:en=Haverhill, Massachusetts" (I had seen that form used on some other relations in MA). I think I started doing that about 50% of my way through, so some of them are still missing the wikipedia tag. In any case, using "wikipedia:en=" seems to have the same effect as "wikipedia=en:" in that it generates correct URLs to the Wikipedia page but that maybe a fluke.

MassGIS over 4 years ago

Not all: there are still no town/city boundaries from the MassGIS database in OSM. Given importance of the town in New England it would be great to get this into OSM.
