Hi tagging list and wiki-trolls,

A quick note to let you know that my spreadsheet is finding
some inconsistencies.

https://spreadsheets.google.com/ccc?key=0Am70fsptsPF2dHJxMG05Zmg2YS1LeFg2czRZOWZEU3c&hl=en


I've downloaded the latest version of JOSM, and directly comparing the
presets with what the Map Features Wiki page says/recommends.
The 1st one is 'amenity=emergency_phone' as listed in JOSM and
'emergency=phone' as listed on the map features page.  I'm not actually
fixing it, (as it all needs to be discussed) im just point it out, so its
visible.

What i am doing is simply highlighting in red, those inconsistencies and
recommendations to the wiki-trolls, who can (hopefully) fix up some of this.

A lot of it is just simple edits, but it makes a big difference as it become
much more clearer to the end-users.

Although the purpose of doing this spreadsheet is for CommonMap, and the
external datasets, it will be helpfull to be in alignment with what the
osm-features are.  This is why im mapping these inconsistencies.  In a
spreadsheet form, it makes it easy to sort & filter which is not actually
possible on the wiki-sheet.   I intend to go back through the main map
features page every few months, and check to see what has been updated.


Cheers,
Sam
