Old City Map Reference: POI 11 MAP F1

Quality control issue: This POI was already digitized in OSM, but is interesting because it contains an extensive list of tags that I have not used. I was wondering if it would be interesting to add some of these tags to our POI data. If so, which ones? I made no changes to this point.

Old City Map Reference: POI 13 MAP D5

Quality Control Issue: To follow this issue, please load into JOSM. This point already was digitized into the OSM before I started, both as a point and a polygon feature. Neither feature is located where it falls according to the rectified old city map. I did not modify either feature.

Quality control issue: To follow this issue, please load into JOSM. This POI already had a polygon feature in OSM that has a slight positional discrepency with the Old City Map. I placed the point at the position of the Old City Map.

Quality control issue: The location of this POI is highly suspect, because I was unable to locate reliable control points to rectify the map. The position I chose represents my best guess. The roads that have been digitized in this area need considerable revision.
