Hi Folks,

I would like to import a few thousand POI to OSM with a self developed tool
called osm_poi_matchmaker [1]. The tool is available under free license on
Github and I am constantly working on its improvement. It is a python tool
that download data from data sources (shops, post office, fuel stations) ,
converts a data and produces osm and csv files. It does not submit any data
directly to OSM.

I am currently processing the beta quality output data in OSM format. I
will release more import request based on available data. First I started
with Hungarian Tesco stores [2] and Postal services[3]. I started a
discussion on Hungarian OSMers to try to meet all requirements.

The goals of these imports are:
* Same type of POI should have same tags. I am using common tags that
describe all of POI in that category.
* Add richer tags for POIs
* Provide opening hours when possible, with correct opening_hours format.
* Provide POI custom minisite when available (For example Tesco stores have
small pages for every store).
* Try to enrich already mapped POI-s based on type and geom distance search.
* Create POI nodes that aren't mapped at all.
* Create osm file for review and import.

The base account is what I use for import is: osmkami911 at gmail.com
Since gmail provides may to create simple aliases I will use
osmkami911+hu-tesco at gmail.hu, osmkami911*hu-post at gmail.hu users for it.

I updated the Hungarian Import page with these information [4].

I hope these import will help to make OSM even better. :)

Thank you in advance!

Üdvözlettel / Best Regards:
