> the useless node at once... Anyway I am ready to fire up my script to upload
> the Geobase boundary, version 2. I limited to 500 the number of nodes per
> way. I considered your suggestions for tags. The osm way boundaries will

>    - <tag k="created_by" v="FME-GeobaseBoundaries"/> (my FME script is not
>    published. I consider to publish it when documented)
>    - <tag k="boundary" v="administrative"/>
>    - <tag k="admin_level" v="4"/>
>    - <tag k="geobase:uuid" v="281"/>
>    - <tag k="source" v="geobase"/>
>    - <tag k="name" v="NUNAVUT"/>

> Let me know if you have other suggestions. I'll start the upload tomorrow
