Tartu import over 13 years ago

Good idea :) http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Featured_image_proposals#Tartu_map_import

I guess "Emajõe luht" in English would be "water meadow", so landuse=meadow ? In reality the areas are unmaintained for last 20 years or so, and like with all meadows here these are already more becoming "bush" (võsa) by now. Heath (nõmm) is something more about highlands, so I changed now all the areas to landuse=meadow.

Ok, now buildings should be finally imported. Needs logical validation: some buildings may overlap with some roads, which are not so exact. Could be technical things for manual tweaking (missing/duplicate nodes) etc, but general picture should look quite nice after renderer next updates. I added some manual tagging and added some POIs into Tartu.

Should also mark Tartu as "all streets" in the status page.

Right, I am re-uploading (13% done, will take a few more hours). I use JOSM for uploading, I tried some command-line tools (perl), but could not get them properly working.

I found that big areas in city outskirts tagged (by me) as "natural=heath" are rendered strangely yellowish (in OSMARenderer), and they also overlap forest areas. These were categorized as "rohumaa" (grass field) in original datasets, these are a bit wet, seasonally under water, quite hardly accessable areas with high grass, occasional bushes, small tracks for fishmen. Suggestions how to tag them better?
