Hi all,

As I said on my OSM diary[1], I have finally made an import of the
Logainm data. I used the import account rorym_import_logainm[2]. I
imported it in 2 goes. First just the baronies (which was only 6
missing), to test that the import worked. That was changeset
37805913[3]. Then I imported the rest, in 3 changesets[4][5][6].

All in, I updated 20,506 objects. About 56% of civil parishes were able
to be matched up, and 39% of townlands. The main reason for the low
number is due to how the script matches up. For CPs, it looks at the
barony it's in, and checks the logainm id of that, and then looks for
an exact name match. If the barony has not been mapped, then it can't
match up. Likewise, for townlands, it looks at the CP. No CP mapped
and the townland can't be matched up. There is a lot of areas where
only townlands are mapped. If you want to improve Logainm importing,
please add more baronies and civil parishes.

There were many cases where an exact name match wasn't found. I haven't
looked into this yet, but I suspect it might be just misspellings, or
things like that.

It takes a long time to upload 20,000 objects with JOSM. :)

I plan to continue to work on this, improve the script, and re-run
imports as more OSM data is added. You can follow it on the user diary
for the import account[7].
