Updating OpenStreetMap's TIGER Imports to TIGER 2013

A session at State of the Map US 2013

Saturday 8th June, 2013

3:30pm to 4:00pm (PST)

A lot of the OpenStreetMap data in the United States was originally imported from the U.S. Census Bureau’s TIGER map data. Unfortunately at the time of the import, TIGER was in the middle of a multi-year project to correct misalignments and omissions, and most of these corrections have never been applied to OpenStreetMap. This talk is about Eric’s attempt to merge TIGER updates into OpenStreetMap and the things that make doing this difficult.
