this is one of the big challenges facing us.
i chatted with one of the census staffers after SOTM US, and some of the
that is so bad from tiger in OSM right now is apparently dramatically
in tiger 2010. for example, the awful data in West Virginia is
better in tiger 2010.
i think we have to go area by area, taking the newer data in areas where
has not been any local editing going on. for other areas, i think we
need the new
tools that OSMers like Serge and Ian have been talking about to support
these tools should support other cases such as in Arkansas, where Learon
has official data he'd like to see imported.
