[talk-au] BP service station import

Someone kindly updated the import catalogue page to suggest where the BP 
service station import came from. I have followed it up and have 
permission to use as copied below. I will also put a copy up for public 
record. This, or something similar, was imported by a declined user who 
refused to say where it came from, so all the stations will go as well 
as subsequent modifications.

If anyone wants a go,  the (small) files can be found at 
http://www.bp.com/iframe.do?categoryId=9026935&contentId=7049357 and are 
in the format below.

Whether they *should* be imported again is another matter.  A couple of  
locations could be checked against known points for accuracy. There will 
also be duplication, though that is fairly easy to fix bit by local mappers.

  On your website you kindly provide a list of service stations along 
with their latitudes and longitudes at this link:


  There appears to be no restriction on use, but I would like to confirm 
that you have no objection to its use in OpenStreetMap 
http://www.openstreetmap.org. The OpenStreetMap respects the IP rights 
of others so we like to be careful.

  OpenStreetMap is a global project to create a unified set of freely 
available map making data. Our own version of the map can be seen at 
http://www.openstreetmap.org and shows fuel stations and their names, 
mostly added one by one by our contributors. We have over 500,000 
contributors worldwide. All our data is mandated to be available under a 
free and open license for anyone to use without fee, this includes both 
individual and commercial use.  Our current distribution license is the 
Open Database License, http://opendatacommons.org/licenses/odbl/ .
