I would guess I’m not the first who comes up with that questions but I haven’t found a thread in the forum…
Can I enter historical data into OSM? I don’t mean data from old maps which are still valid.
I mean historical streets, POIs etc. that ceased to exist. Some historical places can be located quite good e.g. the Roman Limes in Europe.
I would polute the OSM database if I would enter such a historical and no longer existing entity into OSM, wouldn’t I?
I mean I can hardly enter a GPX track that describes a former Roman castle which is now e.g. under woods or hidden by a motorway or something else.
I pretty new in OSM but I could imagine that a tagging would be a solution. Something like existed=3d_century,4th_century
Viewer and editor software should be aware of such tags, though.
Apparently, I’m looking for historical maps in OSM and I’m also interested in producing such historical spatial data.
Are there others working with such things?
Thanks in advance,
