I’ve got ~100 drinking fountain coordinates to upload, taken from a public utility website. Some points may already have been marked and I want to avoid duplicating them. Has anyone developed a tool to automatically detect existing nearby points with similar tags?
Ideally I’d like to:
- generate the list of coordinates (scraped from the water company’s website)
- create a changeset (JOSM format perhaps?)
- run a tool to detect if any of these points have duplicates with similar tags nearby and, if so, remove the duplicate from the changeset
- save the final changeset
I’m new to programmatically changing OSM so pointers to best tools and practices would be appreciated. And of course, I’d first test this on a development server.
