Take aways:

  • Brasilia block system was tricky to figure out...
  • ... and is now tricky to enter. Please join the discussion for a solution

Is the block system a neighbourhood? How about place=neighbourhood http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:place http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:place%3Dneighbourhood

Is QSC a location rather than a neighbourhood? Would tagging the place as 'place=locality' work?

Hey alexz - just seeing your comment now. After a discussion on the tagging list, we're planning on using a closed way tagged

place=block area=yes

for blocks. Issue right now is that such ways won't show up on OSM.org : p
