Do you know that there’s a lot of discussion whether parcel data belongs in OSM?

First of all, there’ the “ground verification” that’s very hard with parcel data. We need to trust the governments that give us the data.

Secondly, parcel data updates a lot (parcels get split or merged). It’s even hard to maintain this in the governmental database, so it’s very hard to do this on OSM.

You’re welcome! OpenID is very well developed to import TMS, you simply just need the link
