3rd type of Import
- A Bulk Import for a large area such as a complete city / State/ Province / Country. This is where a large group of people (mainly those effected) would take part in discussions (talk list) and wiki, were as many map features are available. This requires careful consideration; Looking at all the ideas available before proceeding. As this data also gets updated. Such as GeoBase Import. See Importing Government Data for further discussion.
- Bulk import.pl is one option to use

Convert Shapefile to .osm?
How does one convert a Shapefile to .osm format? I want to view some shapefiles I have in JOSM. -- User:Orienteerer 04:42, 15 November 2009
Data imports to OpenStreetBugs by geocoder
There is a large variety of possible data sources, where only address information is available, but no coordinates (e.g. the international list of wheelchair toilets with centralkey=eurokey, "Der Locus".)
Is there a method to put these addresses through a geocoder and drop OSBugs on the map?
Or do we have to put them into OSM with a fixme=* ?
