Protected Areas (National Parks etc) of Queensland

Queensland Government Information Service has datasets containing National Park, Wetland areas and State Forests are available for the Qld State Govt under a CCBY3 licence. Importing these would improve the Qld map area, (so long as duplicate nodes and clashes with pre-existing data could be resolved):

Status

Manual upload of parks was completed by user QldProtectedAreas over a 3 week period March 2011.

Licence

  • Licence is CCBY3 - (they are hard to link to.. but here is the boundaries dataset licence and metadata: http://goo.gl/OBDr8
  • licence details here - http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/au/deed.en
  • Attribution Required "State of Queensland (Department of Environment and Resource Management) 2010. Updated data available at http://dds.information.qld.gov.au/dds/"
    • N.B. Attribution required has a cedilla or something as first character - to comply we'd need to put this in as well? It's probably a copyright symbol in unicode that got mangled converting to 7 bit ascii... actual text says:
¿ State of Queensland (Department of Environment and Resource Management) 2010. Updated data available at http://dds.information.qld.gov.au/dds/.

Previous imports

There has been previous work done on a similar dataset by James Livingston on data from data.gov.au documented here: http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Data.australia.gov.au/Queensland#Queensland_Wetlands_Mapping_.E2.80.93_Estates_Layer_including_National_Parks.2C_Conservation_Areas_.26_Forest_Reserves Currently trying to ascertain if this has stalled and can continue without upsetting anybody Chas66 02:37, 13 March 2011 (UTC)

Getting the data

  • Go to http://dds.information.qld.gov.au/dds/
  • leave the search page at defaults, save for third to last text box on the page - enter the search term "protected areas" with the quotes.
  • Search result page should be ~3 datasets.
  • Select SHP file version or whatever works best with modern import tooling.
  • Add to your cart (they are zero cost, so no financial outlay required)
  • Checkout and email with download link should arrive.

Dataset of interest

  • Protected Areas of Queensland - Boundaries
    • This is most likely to be the most useful to import?

Tag Suggestions

Tagging guidelines at http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Australian_Tagging_Guidelines#.28National.2C_State_etc.29_Parks are incomplete. Draft below:

Static

Derived

ESTTYPE lookup table

These are the distinct values in the dataset for ESTTYPE column, along with in what the potect_id and protection_title values should be:

  • ESTTYPE - protect_id - protection_title
"" -   - *Do Not Import/Null data row*
CP - 3 - Conservation Park
FR - 6 - Forest Reserve
NC - 2 - National Park (Cape York Peninsula Aboriginal Land)
NP - 2 - National Park
NS - 2 - National Parks Scientific 
NY - 2 - National Park Recovery 
RR - 6 - Resources Reserve
SF - 6 - State Forest
TR - 6 - Timber Reserve

Import Software Selection

Software is needed to import the shp, one of these probably: http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Import/Software Ogr2osm.py translation file has been drafted to support the above tags and placed on the TranslationDraft page. The result is then run through JOSM simplify tool.

Import methodology - manual steps

Upload park by park relations and/or ways: Following the Canvec directions here: http://scanningpages.wordpress.com/2010/08/08/openstreetmap-canvec-importing/

Import considerations

  • How to manage duplicate nodes resulting from import
    • manual clanup in JOSM with validator?
  • Pre-exisiting areas, detect and skip or update?
  • Slice imports into park sized OSM files
    • This will allow people to monitor and modify on a park by park upload basis
  • Simplification of nodes - some parks have way to many nodes - assuming that JOSM can simplify them all
  • Park boundaries are same as admin boundaries in many cases - conversion to relations?

Sample Park Import and OSM file

There's an example of a sample park I have imported here http://www.openstreetmap.org/?lat=-17.6307&lon=139.7809&zoom=13&layers=M

The OSM file generated with the current translation is here: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/446994/simplifiedQldParks.osm.zip
