"This import project will include multiple data sets from the Planning Department of Prince George's County." - I strongly recommend splitting it into separate imports, one for each data set Mateusz Konieczny (talk) 19:22, 6 June 2018 (UTC)

They will be imported separately but can I still have one planning page as it's relatively similar? System-users-3.svgGregoryM (GregoryMu on osm)

I would make separate planning pages and discuss each part separately Mateusz Konieczny (talk) 16:34, 7 June 2018 (UTC)
The parts aren't that separate in my opinion. It's mostly just a point file for libraries and other POIs and a polygon file for buildings. Parks is separate but I am unsure as to whether we will add that yet or if we will add other files tooSystem-users-3.svgGregoryM (GregoryMu on osm)

License

It is not clear to me that the data is in the public domain. http://gisdata.pgplanning.org/opendata/ only specifies that the open data initiative "allows for the distribution of digital data to anyone in the public and private sectors" and that the data "is available at no cost".

This does not mean that the data is in the public domain. For example, the digital data on Wikipedia is also available at no cost to anyone in the public and private sectors, but it is not in the public domain (instead it is available under a Creative Commons license).

I brought the same explicit license point a few times over the past few years to the Prince George's County GIS OpenData portal contacts and with a few in person reps with no response, but apparently something got through. The GIS Open Data portal now clearly states it applies the CC-BY 4.0 license as I viewed http://gisdata.pgplanning.org/opendata/ on May 11, 2019.
