Madrid Museums Import
The goal is to manually merge and import the museums and museums information from the Madrid city council database, see: Import_Ayuntamiento_Madrid (in spanish)
In Madrid there are 55 museums already in OSM. The dataset from the city council contains 67. It contains useful information like: name, description, opening hours, if it is accesible with a wheelchair or not, address, phone, email and url.
Existing hand mapped information will not be replaced by the import without on-the-ground verification.
- September 7 2016: We started the preparation and the discussion. See the discussion in the talk-es list (in spanish)
- September 10: Proposal sent to the imports list
- September 14: Import started
- December 2016: We finished doing the QA after the import
The original dataset is xml format. It includes a total of 67 spots.
We'll use the xml file for processing. You can download the data here.
ODbL Compliance verified: YES
The license can be consulted here (in Spanish). It requires attribution of the source, so all nodes and the changeset will include source=Ayuntamiento de Madrid. The Madrid City Council (Ayuntamiento de Madrid) is already on the contributors list.
After sending the report with the problems and errors found during the drinking water import, including a section about the license, got a response from the "Subdirección General de Transparencia del Ayuntamiento de Madrid" (the data owner), and they confirmed me that we comply with their attribution clause using their data in OSM if we clearly specify the source and the source:date, the way it was done on the Madrid_Drinking_Water_Import. And they do like the work we are doing :) Kresp0 (talk) 13:30, 16 October 2016 (UTC)
The import will be done manually, using the Tasks Manager, so it can be assigned to different volunteers. JOSM will be used to edit the data.
Data Reduction & Simplification
Some corrections are made with the data conversion script madridxml2osm. Some of the fields aren't relevant and will be ignored.
Here are the original fields, their meaning and how they will be converted to the resulting OSM file:
|Original Fields||Meaning||OSM tag||Comments|
|ID-ENTIDAD||Internal reference number||Not used|
|DESCRIPCION-ENTIDAD||Description||description=*||Part of description=*|
|HORARIO||Timetables||opening_hours=*||Manual processing needed|
|EQUIPAMIENTO||Additional info about the museum||description=*||Part of description=*|
|TRANSPORTE||Nearest bus and metro stations||Not used|
|DESCRIPCION||Description||description=*||Part of description=*|
|ACCESIBILIDAD||Wheelchair access. 0 = no access, 1 = some kind of access||wheelchair=yes or wheelchair=no||Can be changed manually to wheelchair=limited|
|CONTENT-URL||URL||url=*||Only if JOSM likes the url|
|NOMBRE-VIA||Name of the street, without the prefix.||addr:street=*||Part of addr:street=*|
|CLASE-VIAL||Street prefix||addr:street=*||Part of addr:street=*|
|TIPO-NUM||kind of housenumber||Not used|
|COORDENADA-X||Coordinate X||Not used|
|COORDENADA-Y||Coordinate Y||Not used|
We added the following tags:
We will use the following changeset tags:
- comment=#Madrid_museums_import and any notes that the mapper may add.
- source=Ayuntamiento de Madrid
- url=https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Madrid_Museums_Import (this page)
- created_by=JOSM/version (This tag is created automatically by JOSM)
Data is in xml format. We already:
- Converted it to OSM format using the madridxml2osm data conversion script
- Manually drawn the working area using JOSM and saved as geojson
- Uploaded the working area to the TM
- Splitted the osm file to have one file for each task on the TM using the osmboxes script
Data Import Workflow
Import will be undertaken by experienced OSM volunteers, following a strict workflow.
As most (if not all) of the volunteers will be Spanish speaking, they can follow the detailed workflow in Spanish language on the TM.
The workflow will be as follows:
- 1. Install the TODO list JOSM plugin if the volunteer don't have it.
- 2. Create, if we don't have one yet, an import specific user account, like username_madrid_museums_import (you will need a different email address from the account you used for your regular OSM account). Change the OSM username to that specific account in the JOSM preferences.
- 3. Configure JOSM to allow remote access.
- 4. Login into the Tasks Manager.
- 5 Select one square to work on.
- 6 Open the OSM data and the museums data by clicking on the JOSM button and the link on the extra instructions.
- 7 Select all nodes on the museums layer and add them to the ToDo list. For each node we'll:
- Edit the description=* to be less than 256 characters
- On the addr:street=*, fix the name to match the current OSM street name
- opening_hours=* has to be translated from spanish to opening_hours=* format
- If the museum is subterranean, a tag layer=-1 will be added
- Add entrance=main if there is none and optionally additional entrance=yes
- Add operator=* if known.
- Conflate the node data with the museum building/node if there is already one or create a new one if not. Don't replace existing hand mapped information without on-the-ground verification.
- 8. After the import is done, there will be a review process using the TM.
In case of any trouble, JOSM reverter will be used.
