I saw that you were interested in generating Karlsruhe style ways from TIGER data. I have a script that does that at: http://svn.openstreetmap.org/applications/utils/import/tiger2osm/ Let me know what you think. --Liber 01:30, 6 June 2009 (UTC)
TIGER 2008 Places bulk upload
Chris, do you mind if I remove the "places" boundaries that represent boroughs, cities, towns and villages within New Jersey, to replace them with the municipal boundaries from the NJ Office of GIS? All of NJ is incorporated, including townships, and I would leave the boundaries representing CDPs within the townships.
I've saved a copy of what I intend to upload to the web: nj_munis.osm As this would be my first statewide bulk upload, any advice or pointers would be greatly appreciated.

- Absolutely, go on ahead if you have some better data. You can grab the bulk uploader script I use from http://www.lordsutch.com/osm/; it's just a tweaked version of the bulk_upload.py designed to hammer the server less. Lordsutch 22:28, 21 July 2009 (UTC)
Did the TIGER data come with township boundaries? Like most Midwestern states, Ohio has township governments, which function sort of like villages. OSM currently has administrative borders on CDPs instead of townships. Ohio mappers have been detagging them; see Ohio#CDPs. At least in Ohio, it would make sense to tag townships like municipalities, so boundary=administrative and admin_level=8. If you can help us, that'd be great. – Minh Nguyễn (talk, contribs) 06:45, 22 October 2009 (UTC)
