I recall we had some issues with the Shell import. I have nearly finished my auditing tool, which helps record every issue with an import and apply it to the actual importing process. After testing it on a few local imports, I invite you to check the tool out and validate some fuel stations:


The tutorial is not yet ready, but the interface should be quite simple. You can move the marker on nearly half of the stations to a better position, if you want. For tags, both old and new values are displayed, and you can click on each to select it for importing. If there is something to be corrected after, type a message into the "fixme" field to find it later.

After validating, press the big green "Good" (or "Record changes") button to send the result to the server. Two "Bad" buttons are for marking duplicates or absent stations. Please note that the imagery is not quite recent: I've seen a couple stations that were built after the imagery was taken. If you're undecided on a point, click "Skip".

Each point should be validated by at least two users, and each change requires a confirmation by another user. If you think you've made a mistake, you can return to the point from the "Browse points" page — click "edit this" after selecting a point there.

If you have a region you're most familiar with, draw a bounding box for it in your profile (you can draw several):


If you encounter an issue or have suggestions on improving the process, please tell me.
