There’s definitely plenty of work to do on the DaveHansenTiger ways, but I’d really like to include the bot-mode ways as well in the first round. By definition, any untouched TIGER ways that have a name are going to fall into the bot-mode group, and those seem to me like the most important ways to look at.

I’d already started breaking the data up into chunks by county—running the DaveHansenTiger query for the whole state should produce a visible blank spot in the northwest lower peninsula. I was planning on setting up Maproulette tasks for every county in the state and then open them up to some other Michigan mappers who might be interested. It’s a shame that Overpass-turbo can’t handle this query natively.

Are there any other tools that could process output from Overpass-turbo and get me to my goal? The JOSM suggestion is good, but I’d like to make this process available to mappers who don’t use JOSM.
