I'm interested in seeing buildings in ACT Australia imported into
OpenStreetMap in line with the Import Guidelines
<https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Import/Guidelines>.

At this stage I'm seeking buy in from the local community as well as
feedback on the plan.

The data is available from http://actmapi.act.gov.au/datadownload/ and is
CC BY 4.0 licensed and the OSMF CC BY waiver has been completed
https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/File:ACT_Government_20180314_Permission_to_Incorporate_CCBY_data_into_OSM.PDF
.

1. Attribute Mapping

The existing building classifications don't exactly line up with OSM
building tags and this is something easy to contribute via survey so most
buildings have the generic building=yes tag or building=residential tag.

source:geometry=ACTMapi has been added to each feature.

2.  Import Plan

I've done some processing to the source data at
https://github.com/andrewharvey/au-actmapi-osm-import the .osm file is at
https://tianjara.net/data/act_building_footprints.osm.xz

The import would use a dedicated imports account and not would either use
the geometry replace tool in JOSM or not replace existing buildings. I'm
keen for any feedback from the local ACT mappers.
