I would like to run a fresh import of NEXRAD radar stations. A prior
import is documented at:
These are primarily in the USA.
I'm using a merge-edit tool which produces a "diff" compared to the
and then modifies (not replaces) nodes.
In particular I'd like to get rid of the ugly note tag, and make the
The new tags would look like so:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<osm version="0.6" generator="osmfetch"
<node action='modify' lat='48.194' lon='-122.496' id='586625159'
<tag k='man_made' v='beacon'/>
<tag k='radar_transponder' v='NEXRAD'/>
<tag k='operator' v='NOAA'/>
<tag k='name' v='KATX'/>
<tag k='source' v='osmfetch:noaa:nexrad'/>
<tag k='source:pkey' v='KATX'/>
Plus new stations will be added.
If there were obsolete stations they would be deleted (but there are
none right now).
The import "diff" script would be run every 6 months or so to pick up
The script is called "osmfetch", and the import-specific code can be
seen on the tagging list.
If required I can submit the script for checkin to svn, prior to running it.
