Arrondissements Quebec city import

From OpenStreetMap Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search


Polygon data for the limits of the arrondissement is available on the site. There may be other data there to import but right now this page concerns only the polygon data.

The data is available in DXF and SHP formats. It also includes names.




It is unclear if the licence of the dataset is compatible with the license is OK for the Openstreetmap license, let alone for the new Open_Database_License...

So to be determined.


Something from Import/Shapefile probably...


Before the import, we need to:

  1. call out to the Talk:Canada:Québec:Capitale-Nationale page
  2. write the mailing list
  3. clear up licensing issues (in progress: contacted the city)
  4. determine the tag prefix and document below
  5. determine the source=* tag and document below
  6. wait for feedback from the community
  7. determine the software (Import/Shapefile in particular) to use and how to use it
  8. read and abid to the Automated Edits/Code of Conduct

During the import, we need to:

  1. Using_the_dev_server
  2. use a dedicated user account
  3. Consider a Revert if things look wrong
  4. consider simplifying

Also update parent page (Import/Catalogue) when any progress is done here.
