Hi Jason,

Putting attribution & source tags only on the changeset seems wrong to me. When a 3rd party takes the data from OSM, the attribution at least should be attached, no?

I'm using ogr2osm to generate XML. Below are a couple of samples - first is RES_CLASS="Conservation Area" and second is RES_CLASS="Forest Reserve"

<relationid="-574116"visible="true"><memberref="-574117"role="outer"type="way"/><memberref="-574667"role="inner"type="way"/><memberref="-574693"role="inner"type="way"/><memberref="-574713"role="inner"type="way"/><tagk="type"v="multipolygon"/><tagk="attribution"v="DPIPWE,  http://www.dpiw.tas.gov.au/tasreserveestate"/><tagk="name"v="White Beach Conservation Area"/><tagk="leisure"v="nature_reserve"/><tagk="source"v="Tasmanian Reserve Estate Spatial Layer 2012"/><tagk="operator"v="DPIPWE"/><tagk="boundary"v="protected_area"/><tagk="start_date"v="2011-10-12"/><tagk="protection_title"v="Conservation Area"/></relation>
<relationid="-50546"visible="true"><memberref="-50547"role="outer"type="way"/><memberref="-50985"role="inner"type="way"/><tagk="type"v="multipolygon"/><tagk="attribution"v="DPIPWE,  http://www.dpiw.tas.gov.au/tasreserveestate"/><tagk="name"v="Derby Forest Reserve"/><tagk="source"v="Tasmanian Reserve Estate Spatial Layer 2012"/><tagk="operator"v="DPIPWE"/><tagk="boundary"v="landuse"/><tagk="landuse"v="forest"/><tagk="start_date"v="1998-12-18"/><tagk="protection_title"v="Forest Reserve"/></relation>

Look OK? Is boundary type 'landuse' correct for a forest reserve?

Regarding tagging of entities, I'm thinking that only relations need to be tagged and ways that are not part of relations. Is that correct?

My planned workflow is:

For each RES_CLASS:

- use ogr2sm to produce XML
- load into JOSM to simplify ways and tidy up
- bulk upload from JOSM using account 'porjo_tasparks'

Do you mean these should go *only* on the change set?

I'm not sure what you mean. The 'name' tag will identify them...but I guess you meant something else?

The "RES_CLASS" field  should probably map to different OSM tags. For example, a national park does not get the same tags as a historic site. If you are just importing national parks, and not the other RES_CLASS's, then you are missing the "boundary=national_park" or "boundary=protected_area", which is the primary tag over the protection_title tag.

>> - You might need an area tag on some of these features?
Providing that all features are in multi-polygon relations, no area tag should be needed?

Yes, you might be right. In general that
