Hi everyone,

Thank you Brian for pushing this forward. The ongoing discussion (and 
reminders from a NavAds employee) have made me start developing the 
auditing tool for imported data. Hopefully next week I'll give you all a 
link where you can check every imported object one by one, and alter the 

Harry's visualisation was merged into my map. Alas, colours there do not 
work as you think they do: blue means modified existing objects, green — 
new nodes to be added to OSM. Tracking the progress with the 
visualization would be complicated, since we don't have any means to 
store your verdicts on each point.

As for the questions about license and location quality, I answered 
these in May:


Robert, I don't have official branch numbers from Shell. Identifiers 
that are being added in "ref:navads_shell" will be used for updating the 
data, to skip the matching step.
