Data for Import in Athens-Clarke County
Hi Deane, I see that you have helped with setting up the arcGIS assisted imported of building outlines and address for John's Creek in Georgia. I am currently working on a similar data import for addresses in Athens-Clarke County. I have contacted the county GIS office and they indicated that the data they have available on the open-data portal is available for use (not sure if this applicable for use with ESRI in ArcGIS).
If you don't mind me asking, how would I begin this import process? At the moment, I am just working on modifying and transforming the address .csv data set by hand (see my import page here, but I would love for this integration with the MapwithAI functionality that JOSM and the iD editor of OSM supports.
If you any idea of where I could start, I would love to help connect the right people or potentially do some of the data cleaning myself. Again, thank you for your time and I look forward to your response! - Ian --IanVG (talk) 04:17, 25 January 2021 (UTC)
Hi Ian, thanks for the note. I am glad to hear that you are interested in adding some address data for Athens-Clark County. It should be quite possible to do the integration of this data with OSM using the MapWithAI tools in JOSM and RapiD. We can coordinate some details via email if you like but the basic steps would be to:
1. Prepare the data in OSM friendly format (e.g. OSM address tags). 2. Publish the processed data as an ArcGIS feature layer. 3. Share the data (and feature layer) for review by the OSM community. 4. Curate the data into the ArcGIS Online group accessed by JOSM and RapiD.
If you can support the work for #1 and #3, I can help you with #2 and #4. For #2, we can either publish the data for you or we can show you how it can be done, which may be useful for other data you'd like to add in the future. Feel free to reach out to me and the team via email at email@example.com if you want to coordinate more details directly. --Dkensok (talk) 18:14, 1 February 2021 (UTC)
