I have hundreds of nodes to upload into OSM, I know how to concert my GEOJSON files into OSM XML changesets but I can’t use the latest version (0.6) of the OSM API with Curl to upload data, I only succeed to download data.
The default online editor doesn’t help for mass upload. JOSM works very well in a desktop environment but I need an occasional solution that would work in other situations when there’s no JRE available.
I want to upload numerous locations of public free billboards for non commercial activities.
Yes and I think that those data will be very useful in France a few months before the European elections.
Thank you for your help.
In my humble opinion, this wiki article should be fixed instead of remaining unfixed for the latest version. There are different usages, talking to the API in command line is an alternative to using an editor in some situations.
I’ve looked at the source code of JOSM and I don’t know what is wrong in my use of Curl, both use base64 encoded credentials, the authentication seems to work. Does the API allow to delete a closed changeset?
Please discuss this with the French community first before trying anything else. As I mentioned on stack overflow, simply dumping stuff into the DB like you plan to do will get your edits reverted and your user blocked.
There are numerous other libraries available these days, and there’s really no need at all to fiddle with the command line.
I just proposed to delete this page, as it promotes bad practices, like testing on the production API, instead of using the development instance for that purpose, just to name one of the many shortcomings.
I don’t see the point of reverting constructive and useful changes. How should I contact the French community?
I don’t see the interest of using an editor because I’m able to provide a changeset in a correct format and I don’t need to use a library in this case because my use case is very simple, I’ve already looked at the data in the database in order to avoid creating duplicate nodes.
If I don’t comply with those guidelines, I’ll rather create a separate map hosted in my own server (which is exactly what I wanted to avoid as I wanted to contribute back to the community as OpenStreetMap has been very useful for me). Contributing can be fun but I find some rules really fair-fetched.
