Data Merge Workflow

Team Approach

This is work done by Buskerudbyen


List all factors that will be evaluated in the import.


Detail the steps you'll take during the actual import.

  • Cleaning up the data in the spreadsheet provided by Bane NOR
  • Converting the data to a csv
  • Using the Open data extension in JOSM to convert the csv into an OSM XML file
  • Using the conflation extension in JOSM to comflate with existing data
  • Importing via JOSM

Information to include:

  • Step by step instructions
  • Changeset size policy
  • Revert plans


We will be using the conflation extension in JOSM and manually go trough all conflicts carefully


We will present our plan to the local OSM community beforehand, and ask for feedback on potential issues before starting the import. We will be careful in creating a search for finding existing Bane NOR bike sheds in OSM and do the conflation.
