This is a second attempt at a planned import of the metadata from the
Placenames Database of Ireland (Logainm) into OpenStreetMap. I
abandoned the last attempt. I have changed the software since last
time, and created some sample data for you to look at.
I would like to match up the official Irish names from Logainm with
the exiting administrative boundaries in OSM (counties, baronies, CPs,
EDs, and townlands). The Irish community supports this move.
The plan is to add OSM tags to existing OSM administrative polygons,
based on the bootstrapped initial tagging of logainm:ref and Logainm's
"object X is spatially contained within object Y" data. We shall not
be creating any new OSM objects, merely updating existing ones.
