While browsing through the INSPIRE catalog , I noticed that there
is a CC0 data set that contains 535 points of remarkable trees (fr:
arbres remarquables, de: bemerkenswerte Bäume).
As there are currently only 8 remarkable trees (natural=* and
denotation=natural_monument) mapped in Luxembourg , I believe that
importing this small dataset could be beneficial, especially if we add
a wikipedia=* reference for each remarkable tree .
That said, there are some open points that could really use some
P1: How to map tree groups (type=Gruppe) and avenues (two-sided tree
I’d really like to avoid using relations. Personally, I’d map a group
as individual trees, and alleys as two separate tree rows.
Unfortunately this approach leads to duplication of information. Note
that most data points are single trees though.
P2: Should we add name=* to the trees, as can be seen on the Wiki page ?
I’m all for adding name=* to the trees. It’s useful when searching for an area.
P3: Is there a quick way to retrieve the correct Wikipedia page 
for each remarkable tree?
I know some pages contain coordinates, is there a simple way to query
this data? Are there any licensing issues if we/I were to do this?
