[Imports] Importing addresses in New South Wales, Australia

Good morning all!

Just a heads up that I have finally gotten around to actually uploading the first set of data - only one suburb, Epping. You can see the changeset here:


Now that it has been uploaded I have placed the dataset in an "uploaded" directory in the repository:


To better keep track of what is and isn't done, I've also done a quick dump of all of the suburbs in NSW. This data is available here. It contains the suburb name, postcode, rural / urban status (I will target urban first), followed by coordinates of a rectangular bounding box of the suburb administrative boundary.


Based off these bounding boxes, I have done an address dump of a bunch of suburbs - I will add more later this week. This data can be used to easily see all the addresses in a region, so we can minimise requests to the LPI servers.

Maybe this is one entrance which leads to all those addresses (e.g. apartments), maybe it is some simplification and you could create better locations than all on (or close to) one point? Do you have the possibility to visit some of these for ground survey?
>>> There's not going to be a single answer here, it's going to vary by location (although it's likely to be one of a few scenarios you mentioned). Ultimately it's always going to be more accurate representation of what's on the group by surveying it.
