Well written ;)
Of course the main confusion derives from the usage of the term city with character 市 for two different administrative division levels, prefecture-level city (admin_level=5) and county-level city (admin_level=6). I’m actually curious about:
Another interesting topic (experienced while editing in zhwiki) is the abandoning of townships or merging with other towns in some provinces but that’s a topic for another diary entry ;)
Eline sağlık, güzel olmuş! Resimli tweet atsana ;)
Yeah, maps.wikimedia.org is great for checking the status of name:nn tags. From time to time I use it to check Greek and Armenian place names in Turkey or Tibetan or Korean place names in China.
@GeoJess: Years ago I had started using name=chinese / english for counties and districts which I nowadays change back to name=chinese and name:en=english whenever I stumble on it. Still I’m using name=tibetan / chinese, name=korean / chinese etc. for places where the majority of population is Tibetan, Korean etc.
But I won’t use such a long name combination on ways like way 230560846 - it seemingly doesn’t get rendered anyway…
Thank you! :D
Thank you ;)
There are several sites where you can get boundary data from - see overview at https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Shapefiles
That script is really new, yeah! Since I did not know the copyright status of the shapefile I had used as source I had to trace over it manually though. The source isn’t too detailed anyway and using mountain ridges as guideline I got an even better result with tracing. Besides I had been using the place name file for AF from GNS which is quite good and maps from https://humanitarianresponse.info as reference!
Maybe you can create a page SHPtoOSMBoundaries or similar with script information on osm’s wiki and add a link to it on Import a shapefile?! I happens that not everyone is reading osm’s diaries ☺
I wonder how many (percentage) of those roads in China have been created by one user…
OSM oyun oynamaya benzer fakat aynı zamanda bir şeyler oluşturuluyor; başkası akıllı cep aygıtına yazılımları yükleyip offline bile yol bulabilir - yani zaman boşu boşuna gitmez ;-)
Ama eğer evliysen dikkat et…! :D
Do you need these (for me meaningless) nodes tagged with non-osm tags ADM_TYPE, HQ_NAME, PERIMETER, RSO03200_1 etc or can I delete them? (example)
you’re welcome ;-)
I kind of solved the problem after finding hyd5_4m.zip on http://nfgis.nsdi.gov.cn/mapdata/ (now defunct) which consists of a shapefile of chinese rivers.
