place area i Nordøstgrønland
you added a large number of objects with strange tags like
All these tags are not used in any other place. "reference numbers" are usually tagged as "ref:XYZ". Please have a look and change the tagging to a common scheme.
Btw, please point me to the obligatory Wiki page detailing this import.
And, most important: Do you have a written statement, that this data may be used for OSM? The terms on the "source" web page forbid it.
Certainly I do have the written permission from GEUS. As to the rest: I still have to learn how, particularly as to how to include/translate the GEUS references. Most importantly a lot of places are points and have to be extended/transferred into multi-polygons: islands, bays,peninsulas etc. Also rivers in the area are actually only known by a single point. The base material is the best that exists nad there is ample room for OSMers to finalize.
This is not the way how an import of data to OSM works. Please read and follow the guideline for imports:
Btw: There are a total of 8 change sets containing some 3500 POIs. After data collection, sorting, and basic structure setup (for example extract peak heights from text) I tried in vain to get some help and support in getting on with final normalization, adjustment, and import. Ended up with having to find out how myself. First thing now: Will transfer my documentation from own pages on the net to wiki ASAP.
This is one of 9 change sets introducing base geographical names for North Eastern Greenland. For more information see http://www.xoz.dk/public/nordost/
I'm still very much in favor of reverting this import for now.
Then we can follow the proper Import Guidelines by first documenting, discussion and then redoing the import with proper tags.
It was established with room for improvement, so please feel welcome. All changesets are documented so that it should be very easy for an experienced person to remove the changesets and renistall with correct keywords. Do, however, bear in mind that most names are simple points that exist only to have their name moved to the correct outline (lake, island, glacier, peninsula etc.) after which they can simply be deleted one by one...
the import guidelines are there for a reason, they are not just a pointless bureaucratic hurdle. In particular the scrutiny of the legal situation of the data used is of high importance.
When asking for permission to use data it is essential to (a) get it from someone who clearly has the authority to give it and (b) make sure the owner of the data understands exactly what you are asking permission for, i.e. to include the data in a database that is used by a lot of people for various purposes without individual data providers being attributed directly. Now i don't understand Danish so i can't really assess this - that would need to be done by the Danish/Greenland community. But it is essential to be extra careful about this to avoid bad surprises and wasted work later.
I think much of the data you prepared would be useful for OSM but importing the data in OSM would definitely need to involve conflation with existing data to avoid duplication. Adding the data without this in the hope that other mappers will in the future sort this out is not a good idea. In particular in a rarely visited area like this the likeliness that this would not happen for years and broken data continues to be present for a long time is very high - we have seen this in other parts of the world.
You seem to be manually conflating data now - like in
but you are not removing the duplicate nodes. I am not sure what your plan is in that regard.
This changeset has been reverted fully or in part by changeset 68929617 where the changeset comment is: Reverting undiscussed import in Greenland following reported problems and request from original importer - message said 'And if someone want to delete the whole thing for a better start: Di it. Be my guest. No offence'
@andershl You have tried again to import data without discussion (about data quality, licence, etc.) and it has been reverted again. As requested above please do read and follow the import guidelines https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Import/Guidelines .
