[Tagging] Date of survey

Marc Gemis marc.gemis at gmail.com
Tue Dec 23 14:59:00 UTC 2014

The date in the history is the date that the modified object is stored in
When I did a  number of surveys in the same area a week or a month before,
this modification date is "useless" to find back my notes.
Just having a survey:date on the changeset allows me to pinpoint the date
of the survey exactly.

Take e.g this changeset http://www.openstreetmap.org/changeset/27649274
 The survey was made on Dec 14, but the modification dates will show Dec
23, 2014.
Since I made several walks in that area, it is nice to see the survey date
at once.

There is also no "pollution" of the objects -tags as it is on the changeset.

I'm not forcing anyone to use this method, but it works for me.

BTW, I originally posted about the survey:date tag because the OP asked how
to add a date to a source tag in case of a survey. At least that is how I
interpreted the OP.
