Please don't. Imports are a real, real annoyance. There's no
indication that anyone using the dracos site has "located" these with
any accuracy or personal knowledge - I wouldn't be surprised to find
many just somewhere "near" the road in question. I'd rather have a
partially complete, high quality map than a bodge of crap data
(NAPTAN, anyone?) that just encourages more people to add crap data
and get the "community to fix it".
Let real mappers, in the real world, do the mapping. That's what we do
best. Leave the automated imports of sub-standard data to our
colleagues in the US.
