3rd type of Import

What about Bulk .. It could lead to the page for the discussion of Importing Government Data

[suggested text:]

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 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=* ?

It is hilariously old but in general neither fixme nor notes should not be created in such situations Mateusz Konieczny (talk) 17:57, 11 March 2019 (UTC)
