Use of Data in association with OSM

Imports

In general don't consider importing this data, a better approach is to use it to drive on-the-ground mapping (see below). The main exception to this is the tram data : details of planned lines imported have considerably assisted both additional mapping and showing a major structural change in the city.

Validation

So far about 5% of open data investigated (mainly Licensed Premises and Food Hygiene) is different from OSM. In the main these appear to reflect changes which have occurred since the Open Data was compiled (typically closures or renaming of premises). Additionally there are a small number of errors in the Open Data, such as incorrect postcodes (often typos), which need to be considered when using the data for validation.
