Import of Police Stations in Haiti
Pacific Disaster Center provides a list of police stations in Haiti. OSM is allowed to import it.
Who is working on it?
- Jan Tappenbeck wrote the scripts and run the import. - done by using csv2osm_local (german discription).
- available as Excel sheet
- look at this overview
- create a script which converts the excel sheet in an OSM files with nodes. Find a reasonable mapping onto OSM tags. amenity=police is likely to be used.
- create a script which checks whether there is already a mapped police station in the neighborhood of one of the police stations in the PDC list. +/- 0.003 to build a square with the police stations position in the center is a qood starting point.
- manuell controll - DONE ! --Jan Tappenbeck 16:29, 10 February 2010 (UTC)
