Import/Catalogue/NSW LPI Base Map

From OpenStreetMap Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search


Since we received permission to use data from New South Wales Land and Property Information in December 2015 mappers have imported a number of the layers into OSM.

Import Accounts

Import accounts were not used so we are relying on correct source tagging.

Source Tagging

Although there was some initial discussion (see December 2015 list thread) as to how to source tag any import there was no constancy in practice. This page describes an attempt to retrospectively harmonise the tagging to source=NSW LPI Base Map.
