[talk-au] FW: Australian Marine Parks Import

Reflecting on your points raised in the changeset discussion, I would tend to agree more detail is better. My main motivation was to put this information on the maps as soon as it was applicable using the data available in CAPAD and my knowledge of the marine parks.

The majority of Commonwealth Marine Reserves as they appear in CAPAD now should not be added to OSM because they were never in effect, but have been ‘under review’ until this Sunday passed (this is stated in CAPAD under the obscure ‘UR’ acronym).

And just clarifying here, the names of the reserves have not changed, but the suffix or protection title of marine reserves managed by the Australian government has changed from “Commonwealth Marine Reserve” to “Marine Park” (if I remember correctly, the former was considered too military-esque).

I've already communicated separately but reiterated here for the list:  As CAPAD is permitted source of data, we should reproduce this data, including names, as it appears in the source. Of course, if we have multiple permitted sources with differing data, then we may need to ascertain which is more authoritative. If both are equally authoritative, then the more recent is probably preferred. However I understand the source of the new names data is not a source for which OSM has permission. Therefore we may have to continue  to use currently permitted data from CAPAD until new CAPAD data is available next year.

Seeking comment, suggestions, objections to continuing importing Australian marine parks. Boundaries from CAPAD 2016, except names are amended as “Marine Park” not “Commonwealth Marine Reserve”.

Technically speaking, the vast majority of Commonwealth Marine Reserves were never in effect (no changes on water) until a just few days ago when the marine parks came into effect.
