House number import

As the municipality has released lot of their data as open data, the house numbers will soon be imported into OSM. This import will be done slowly by User:Grillo (Main OSM account) with an import account. The municipality has been divided in small parts and each part will be gone through with as much care as possible. Current mapping will be retained if it's superior or the same as municipality data. Here is an example of the process. The first edit uploads the numbers as is and the second edit includes them in buildings, entrances and so on, if possible through aerial imagery. Consensus for this project has been sought in the local community (mailing list and Facebook group) and so far the interest has been positive.
