> Hi all,
> Last year, there was already an attempt to import addresses from the
> Agiv[1] CRAB[2] database into OSM. But it got stuck on some problems.
> So I decided to work out a completely new approach, make tools for it, and
> document it.
> All documentation about it can be found on the wiki:
> https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/AGIV_CRAB_Import and
> https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/WikiProject_Belgium/Using_AGIV_Crab_data
> I can't make it clear enough that this will be a slow, community import.
> Where we allow mappers to get data from Agiv in a convenient format for
> editing, but where local mappers are the final judge on how to map it in
> OSM.
> The mapping process is made so that updating data is easy to do. This was
> a neccesary step, since data changes continuously (about 1000 address
> modifications per month).
> But all info should be in the documentation, and I hope there are no
> problems with it.
> Regards,
> Sander
