A catalog of TIGER import related problems affecting particular counties or regions in the US.

California

Bakersfield

Many imported buildings have duplicated POI tags that need improvement.

Los Angeles

Buildings not investigated in depth, but it appears many garages were imported as building=house. A query for building=house smaller than about 60 square meters finds 390 thousand objects. There's also other buildings that have been assigned a type apparently based on the property use. Parking shelters at apartments tagged building=apartments and many sheds and outbuildings.

San Luis Obispo County

House numbers and streets in addr:full=* tags. Also, tags like addr:street:name=*.

Sonora

Address parts in uppercase instead of titlecase.

Illinois

Pike County

Numbered township range/name routes are no longer used as they are in TIGER. Instead, the county uses street/avenue names.

Indiana

Gibson County

Lots of driveways and other service roads as highway=residential from tiger.

Louisiana

Lots of shorter roads imported with tiger:cfcc=A31 and thus highway=secondary that probably aren't quite highway=secondary.

Police juries are tagged amenity=police, even though they're really administrative buildings that should be tagged amenity=townhall.

Massachusetts

Many imported POIs have full addresses stored in the address=* tag.

Michigan

Grand Haven

Lots of sidewalks added without connecting them to the streets.

Minnesota

Fillmore County

Township roads only have the township road number as their name. These numbers are not signed on the ground. The actual signed name of the road seems to be mostly available from TIGER 2017.

New York

Adirondack Park

Hundreds of service roads incorrectly named "Adirondack Park" or "Adirondack Park Preserve". Many are clearly just service roads that should not have names.

St. Lawrence County

Imported addr:street=* are in all caps: http://overpass-turbo.eu/s/xuy .

Ohio

CDP boundaries were imported instead of township boundaries.

Preble County

Every parking lot in the county is mapped as a highway=residential way hugging the edge of the lot.

Oklahoma

Creek County

Many unnamed highway=residential that should be highway=service. Lots appear to be service roads for oil wells.

Texas

Bastrop County

Lots of short, unnamed highway=residential that should be highway=service and maybe service=driveway.

Denton County

Lots of short, unnamed highway=residential that should be highway=service and maybe service=driveway.

Garza County

Many unpaved oil well service roads classified as highway=residential. Many have poor geometry.

Leon County

Many ranch access roads classified as highway=residential. Should probably be highway=track. Many seem to not exist.

Yoakum County

Many unpaved oil well service roads classified as highway=residential. Lots of geometry problems.
