In the US, what would probably be most interesting is a comparison render of just after the TIGER import and today.

One question: does the plugin work for countries that drive on the left?

Yup, keeping data nice is a constant battle. Just gotta keep fighting.

Namespacing can be quite powerful.

Apparently he just has code to turn it into .osm files. Here: https://github.com/derickr/osm-tools/tree/master/musical-chairs-to-garmin

Conversion to gpx wouldn't be a difficult hack. Good beginner project.

Ahoy there James,

I do produce a gzipped csv of the results (http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/OS_Locator_Musical_Chairs#Can_I_have_a_dump_of_the_data.3F) which I know Derick Rethans (http://www.openstreetmap.org/user/Derick%20Rethans) for one uses to produce something like a GPX for his Garmin. Knowing him he has some php script for doing it.

No harm in starting small.

Don't worry too much about the "specifications" on the wiki - a lot of the time that stuff is wishful thinking by a bunch of anally retentive wikifiddlers.

5 dreams/ proposals for OSM headquarters (please comment) 11 months ago

Remember, Tomasz, that a lot of things (most things that aren't to do with actually editing maps) on osm.org are essentially a "demo". If "employers need changes", they are free to implement themselves and make them part of their services. OSM itself doesn't have (and almost certainly never will have) the capacity to be a true google-maps-alike.

If an "employer" finds e.g. the default mapnik style to be inhibiting them, it's probably a sign that they've been piggybacking on the (nonprofit) OSM infrastructure for providing their services for too long.

Oh TIGER... 11 months ago

Interesting thing is that it is actually topologically correct.
