Dear Imports and Imports-US communities,

Today a dedicated team of Baltimore area OpenStreetMap supporters and
mappers are proposing an import of Baltimore buildings and addresses. The
import background and procedures are documented on the OSM wiki:
https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Baltimore_Buildings_Import_2.0

The code is available on GitHub: https://github.com/osmlab/bmorebuildings

Additionally, the import has been added to the import catalog:
https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Import/Catalogue#Community_Imports

The import team includes users ElliottPlack and mpetroff. The data provider
and owner is Jim Garcia with Baltimore City MOIT.

Briefly, the data comes directly from MOIT free of any license, will full
permission for import. The data is simplified, conflated where possible,
and prepped for automated import. Data that conflicts with existing data is
set aside for manual review. It is the intention of the authors of this
import to utilize the OSM Tasking Server to divide up manual review tasks.

Thanks for considerations,

ElliottPlack
