I am interested in creating a simple android app to capture POIs.

I was looking up the XML data structure and found help here http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/OSM_XML .


My question is , for a POI, what is the least amount of data which can be uploaded?

Is the below sufficient?  I can add as many “tag” as required, right?


<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<osm version="0.6" generator="CGImap 0.0.2">

<node id="1831881213" version="1" changeset="12370172" lat="54.0900666" lon="12.2539381" user="lafkor" uid="75625" visible="true" timestamp="2012-07-20T09:43:19Z">

  <tag k="name" v="Neu Broderstorf"/>

  <tag k="traffic_sign" v="city_limit"/>




I see a “user” attribute, is there any password attribute as well?  Can one user upload data in the name of another user?
