City of Suffolk Buildings Import
This project aims to import City of Suffolk, Va buildings from a city-sourced GIS file.
Import Suffolk's building footprints dataset to help Virginia mappers create a more effective map. Get highly accurate, city-wide address data.
Completed on Dec 1st & 2nd, 2015
Data source site: Suffolk GIS Manager provided the building footprints and address shapeless for the explicit purpose to import into OSM
ODbL Compliance verified: yes
OSM Data Files
Initial pass at OSM files here.
This import will be done in sections (block groups) with JOSM
See GitHub Repo for additional details on this import -> Suffolk, VA Import Repo
I will set source=Suffolk GIS
Since the OSM data is being hand-imported in manageable chunks, conflation with existing data will be handled manually in JOSM. I will prefer existing OSM data and tags over the imported data and will try to apply addressing tags from the Suffolk data as correctly as possible.
