Dear imports list,

informing that OSM Latvian community is preparing import of address points  
in Riga, largest city and capital of Latvia. Address point data is  
provided by Riga municipality via open data service and have appropriate  
licence. The import proposal is described in  
https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Latvia/Riga_address_point_import
The goal of import is to significantly improve addressing situation in  
Riga. The import size is about 20 thousand (already excluding OSM existing  
data) address point nodes to be added and correspondingly tagged.

Wide discussion is made in Latvian OSM mail list talk-lv (although in  
Latvian), where local community approves the proposed import and gives  
suggestions for import improvement. The import data is respectively  
prepared in the way not not to overlap the existing address information in  
Riga in OpenStreetMap database, but to supplement it.

Best regards,
Vitaly Bolshakov
