A proposal for improvement of the maxspeed tag by including posted
speed limit data from managers of vehicle fleets.

Initial consultation and discussion

I have a source for posted speed limit data.  This thread begins the
discussion of the data, the origin and quality of the data, and the
suitability of the data to OpenStreetMap.

If the data is found to meet the requirements for inclusion in
OpenStreetMap, it is expected that the discussion will continue and
determine the best method(s) for including that data.

The extent of the data is Canada and USA.  If you are reading this
email on talk-us or talk-ca, and you are deeply interested in the
preliminary details, please join imports@ and reply there.

There will be future email to the local lists after initial
consultation on imports@, if this project is found to meet
OpenStreetMap requirements.

Best Regards and Happy Mapping,
