I made a wiki page about it by hearing conversion contributor.


It seems some duplicate information on "yh:*" tags. They could be deleted, IMHO.
I will tell it to Japanese talk ML.
("yh: WIDTH" tag need to convert to "width" tag, maybe)

I forgot include ML on my later mail. sorry!

>> I happened to look at the tagging of a YahooJapan/ALPSMAP imported way, and was wondering about some of the tagging.
>> For the example way http://www.openstreetmap.org/browse/way/176616956 the non-standard OSM tags are
>> yh:LINE_NAME = 高原野尻線
>> yh:LINE_NUM = 29
>> yh:STRUCTURE = 地上
>> yh:TOTYUMONO = 供用中
>> yh:TYPE = 主要地方道(都道府県道)
>> yh:WIDTH = 5.5m〜13.0m
>> yh:WIDTH_RANK = 2
>> I wonder about if a few of these should be imported.
>> yh:LINE_NAME appears to duplicate name=*. If it's duplicating another tag, it shouldn't really be imported
>> yh:LINE_NUM appears to duplicate ref=*
>> yh:TOTYUMONO has two values which translate to in service and under construction. A query reveals that the under construction ones are tagged with highway=construction construction=*. This appears to duplicate other OSM tags.
>> yh:TYPE appears to duplicate highway=* information
>> yh:WIDTH, yh:WIDTH_RANK and yh:STRUCTURE are all undocumented on the wiki. yh:STRUCTURE appears to duplicate tunnel/bridge tagging but I'm not sure.
>> If these tags are unnecessary they could be added to the list of tags that are silently removed by JOSM when an object is modified. Is there any information yh:LINE_NAME, yh:LINE_NUM, yh:TOTYUMONO or yh:TYPE that is not already in normal OSM tags?
>> I am not sure who is responsible for the tagging of the import files. I've cc'ed Hiroshi Miura since he's the listed contact.
