Importing data from National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency

This discussion was moved from Talk:Main Page

Hi, im really new here, so i'dont know if this is the place to ask for this. Ive been editing the streets of Montevideo (the capital city of Uruguay), via direct editing looking the aereal images of yahoo. One problem i saw in the map of Uruguay, its that it lacks the administratives division of the country (called Department). The cuestion is: looking for a place to extract them i found the site of the "National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency": In the Copyright Notice found here: it says that the data there is in public domain. So i ask you people if the administratives divisions of Uruguay of here: can be imported directly to osm. Thank you. --Zeroth 20:43, 3 June 2009 (UTC)

Welcome! Good to see some enthusiasm for mapping Uraguay. And you've set up WikiProject Uruguay. Excellent!
It would be great to get some administrative boundaries too but unfortunately GeoNames is not accepted as a source of data for OpenStreetMap. See Geonames for details.

Ohh, i see. Well thats a pity, i had hopes in that site... ill keep looking. Thanks for your welcome. --Zeroth 21:19, 5 June 2009 (UTC)


Dice en la página Wiki "Sitios que se pueden consultar para corroborar nombres de calles, localidades, rutas, etc". Están seguros que estos sitios son de dominio público? Caso que no - que es lo más probable - está prohibido consultarlos para OSM! Saludos --Geogast 10:07, 18 September 2009 (UTC)
