Allen County Addresses Import -- 46804b
Is this import discussed anywhere? Please, include link to discussion in changeset tags.
Note that url:en tag is utterly useless as it points to file at your computer.
Please, fix addresses at https://www.openstreetmap.org/#map=19/41.07997/-85.25510
The address that is supposed to be in the url:en tag is https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Import/Catalogue/Address_import_for_Allen_County_Indiana
What are you saying is wrong with the addresses at the link you provided?
Addresses are mapped as nodes next to buildings instead as nodes placed at buildings.
It is necessary to move all of them.
Mateusz, I agree that the addresses being mapped on the buildinging is better. but that does not mean it is the only way they can be mapped. To quote the wiki: https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Addresses
Addresses can be tagged with addr:housenumber=* and the other addr:* keys. Tags can be added to :
* isolated nodes
* nodes that are parts of building polygons ( = entrance=*s )
* building=* polygons
* on polygons representing the perimeter of the site.
The map in this area has very few building outlines rightnow, it's not like Europe here in the US. While I agree it's a good end goal to have all the buildings mapped with addresses on them that is a long ways off from happening. On top of that, the map has always been working on incrementally improving, it's not like mapping is an all or nothing thing.
