Adding landuse and land cover for East Providence & Barrington, RI and cleaning up the coastline
Closed 11 months ago by ZeLonewolf
Data imports have to follow a process that includes thorough discussion with other community members and documentation of the process and methods. I see that you have deleted a lot of existing land cover information and replaced it with something else. Where was this discussed?
Oh hey my bad. Looks like I've got some work to do to document/follow the process better. I did document the RIGIS data source on the Rhode Island wiki page. Although I did start from that data source, I spent two days hand-matching the polygons to imagery, deconflicting/merging/stitching together existing polygons, tracing out things that didn't match, redrawing the coastline and wetland areas, and fixing all of the JOSM findings. Also, a lot of polygons had to get upgraded to relations so that artificially inflates the delete count (since I can't just do a "replace geometry"). Let me know how you would like me to proceed; I would hate to lose all of this manual work.
