Import Project : Montreal Bike Lanes Network

From OpenStreetMap Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

This project is an import of Montreal bikes lanes dataset which is of type (GeoJSON and KML) covering Montreal, Quebec, Canada. The import is currently (as of (date)) at the planning stage.


The goal is to import the newly added bike lanes, clean up any duplicates and hopefully get a solid foundation for future import using the same data source.


Depending of the complexity of both the conversion of the data to the OSM format and the clean up of potential duplicate, this import should take a few weeks.

Import Type

This would be a manual import but if we can automate some of the steps, the next imports would be easier and wouldn’t need a special project like this one.

Data Transformation

The data is available in GeoJSON and KML formats. Not sure which format is the best one to use.

Post a link to your OSM XML files.

Data Merge Workflow

Team Approach

Solo for now, help wanted :)


List all factors that will be evaluated in the import.


I think it depends of the import tool we use and the format.

  • Third-party script to convert the data from GeoJSON to OSM XML then import
  • or JOSM with the Open Data plugin to open the KML file and import the data


Apparently this tools was used in the past for CycleStreets Potlatch 2/merging functionality
