Project Of The Week : Primary and secondary schools continued

A school may be included in OpenStreetMap as either a node node or areas area, but should not be included as both.

Either way, add the following tags to the school element.

To add more detail consider using mapping other features of the schoolyard and school.

Complex versioning of objects

Sometimes you import data from another place to OSM. Some users edit and enhance those objects afterwards. But what do you do if the original source offers a new version of those objects? How to update OSM?

Complex versioning is not really well handled in OSM. We only have a single version number. Discussions started on how to deal with these situations.

As usual, your comments are very welcome on the talk page

Scholarship to SOTM

If you want to apply or know someone that fit the conditions, read more at [2].
