[Talk-us] TIGER 2008 Data is Out

Hi folks,

quick question about this Tiger lines and OSM.

1) Are there any import scripts out there which are not rails or php? something in .NET maybe?
2) Do the tiger lines have the following data (which could then be imported into OSM) :
   a) State shapes (eg. California, New York (state), Illinois, etc)
   b) County shapes (eg. Cook County (IL), DuPage County (IL) etc)
   c) City shapes (eg. San Fran, Boston, Chicago, etc.)
   d) Suburbs (eg. Oak Brook (Chicago), Naperville (Chicago), etc)
   e) Neighbourhoods (eg. Tribeca (NYC), Chelsea (NYC)

Actually, are suburbs and neighbourhoods the same thing?

3) Does OSM have this data?

thanks heaps for any help :)
