Tag springs with natural=spring, and include their name as well. It would be great to tag most of the 72 famous springs, showing the hidden treasures of Jinan.

name and name:en

In general use the Chinese name of streets and places for the 'name' and 'name:zh' tag. Use 'name:en' tag for the English name. It is not always easy to decide what the best English name is.

For streets it is usually most appropriate to simply use pinyin without tones, only translating the main suffixes like 街, street or 路, road. 东西南北 can also be translated as West, East, South, North. So for instance 山大南路 becomes "Shanda South Road".(以官方译名为主)

In rare cases it can be better to literally translate a name, for instance 黑虎泉 is commonly referred to as "Black Tiger Spring" by foreigners, but for 玛瑙泉 it is probably better to use Manao Spring, and not Agate Spring.(遇到无官方译名时最好直译)

GPS traces

There are quite a few GPS traces tagged with 'jinan' (lowercase) as well.
