Hi Pete,

To see how this looks like, I just Looked at the Project 13 Questionnaire list at the end of the PDF file. For the road names, I find it difficult to interpret the hand written english names. But the local Bengladesh team should be able to revise this info once every task is completed, plus adding bengali names.

For other tags,  some objects are not common for northern countries remote mappers.  

To facilitate collaboration from the remote mappers, I added to the wiki page a Tagging schema section for the more  common objects and suggested OSM key and attribute to describe them.
See https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Missing_Maps_Bangladesh_Field_Mapping_Jan15#Tagging_Schema_-_Common_Tags
For the Factories, I used the industrial=factory proposal.   There are some objects for which I could not find a key.
I suggest that the mappers refer to this section and revise the tags. This will assure homogeneity and facilitate tagging for others that later join-in,

Hello all,
We are looking for some help getting the data from the field papers up onto OSM!
The first batch is on the wiki at http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Missing_Maps_Bangladesh_Field_Mapping_Jan15#Field_Paper_Edit_and_Upload.21
We would love it if any of you could grab a pack and follow the instructions. This is the data for Hazaribagh. Some of it has been processed by the Bangladeshi OSM team, but time was limited, so please go through all the packs. If your pack has already been done, a second eye on it would be great anyway. Also, on some, roads will have been edited, but not landmarks (or visa versa).
Hazaribagh is the priority as already one NGO working in the area wants to conduct some health studies using the base map (and very soon)!
I think everything you need is there. let me know if there are any problems!
Thanks a million...
