What happened to the city of Sacramento?

Posted by rayKiddy on 29 September 2015 in English (English)

I have been fixing up boundaries of cities in California and I have found something odd.

Where is the city of Sacramento?

There is a city there, somewhere. There is a county. The county boundaries are at http://openstreetmap.org/relation/396460 and that all looks good. And it is not a county/city hybrid thing like San Francisco. Yes? And I can find the cities of West Sacramento, Rancho Cordova and others nearby, But I cannot find boundaries for the actual city of Sacramento. Google has boundaries for it, but OSM does not?

Or is there some way I should be finding it that I am not doing? I guess it could be mis-spelled.

I am going to the area around the county in http://overpass-turbo.eu/ and doing this search:

 [out:json][timeout:360];
 (
 relation["name"="Sacramento"]({{bbox}});
 way["name"="Sacramento"]({{bbox}});
 node["name"="Sacramento"]({{bbox}});
 );
 out body;
 >;
 out skel qt;

It finds lot of stuff, but no city. Any ideas?

Ah. I had forgotten about using that. And I still do not see a city.

It looks like nobody ever created that boundary. No idea why.

Well, that changeset does not re-create the relation. Interesting. It seems to me that one should be able to identify if the lines from the TIGER data are still there. I have not tried it, but it there should be something there.

And there is no changeset for the deletion? Perhaps that could be reversed….
