Some quick notes about the tags found in planet.osm
(grep tag planet.osm | awk '{print $1,$2}' | sort |
uniq) :

- there are 67 unique tag names, including

<tag k="abbutters"
<tag k="abuters"
<tag k="abutters"

<tag k="{created_by"
<tag k="created_by"

<tag k="ele"
<tag k="elevated"

<tag k="name"
<tag k="NAME"

<tag k="one_way"
<tag k="oneway"

- Many tags are gpsbabelized in an ugly way:


- an unfortunate (IMHO) newspeak is used:

Muenchner Strasse
