<br>This may be heresy . . . . but I found it less painfull to gradually do coastlines manually using<br>Yahoo Imagery. The coastline around Sydney took a long time to fix from the original script<br>import (and some is still broken in a way I can't find).
<br><br>I have started doing the Gosford area and made good progress with potlatch and then checking/fixing<br>any direction problems in josm<br><br>just my 2cents worth ..<br><br><div><span class="gmail_quote">On 7/23/07,

Good Morning Australia,<br><br>> However, the coastline is not downloaded by JOSM and does not appear in Potlatch.<br><br>This means it is not in the OSM database.<br><br>mapnik has coastlines derived from vmap0 and merges them in from a
<br>different source when tiles are created. tiles@home only knows which<br>"tilesets" (i.e. level-12 tiles) are water tiles, so what you basicalle<br>see on the tiles@home map is a coastline with 10km resolution or so.
<br><br>To fix this, you (or someone else, but being in the area makes you a top<br>candidate) will have to convert existing coastline data into OSM format<br>and upload it.<br><br>See <a href="http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/index.php/Coastlines">
http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/index.php/Coastlines</a> and the link<br>"Running the coastline upload" linked from there. However, the script<br>referenced there doesn't work with API 0.4, and you should E-Mail Lars
<br>Aronsson who has created an improved version of the coastline upload<br>script that will work. Alternatively, I can give you a modified version<br>of the coastline conversion script that will create .osm files to load
<br>in JOSM (and upload from there) instead of directly uploading the stuff.<br><br>If you don't feel up to the task of running the script, try and find<br>someone else who does it ;-) if all else fails, I can do it but after
<br>the raw converted data is uploaded, you'll still have a lot of manual<br>work to fix the little bits.<br><br>Bye<br>Frederik<br><br>--<br>Frederik Ramm ## eMail <a href="mailto:email@example.com">firstname.lastname@example.org
