Is this the most up to date way of keeping addresses?
Well, I have some perl code that will parse the 2007/2008 TIGER data
files. My goal is to get the addresses imported into OSM this time
around. Here's some ugly sample output of what I have now.
I don't need any suggestions on it, I just wanted to show people what I
have so far.
* I currently have the way combination code turned off. This means that
OSM ways are represented 1:1 with the TIGER TLIDs.
* Some multi-segment TIGER roads have only a single address range.
Do we create segments for each road segment and evenly divide the
addresses? Or, do we draw a single address segment going from the
first to last node?
And, yes, I saw the 2009 data come out. I'll make sure my code works
