Okay, 'splain this to me nice and slow...
Is there a place where the GeoBase to OSM files are stored? Not the
files that were used to upload the Geobase roads, with matches
excluded, but a full road database. This is to be used as Sam
suggests, loading it as a layer in JOSM, and then using it to check
the current OSM data against, merging in the best of both worlds into
the OSM database.
Using the full GeoBase file would allow people to make the informed
decision on how to connect imported GeoBase ways to existing OSM ways,
align OSM ways that may be not as precise as GeoBase ways, and copy
Only tiles that contained road matcher exclusions would need to be
available. If the tile was processed without any road matcher
exclusions (no OSM data existed before the import), there's no need
for anyone to compare, as imported will match GeoBase exactly.
