Switching Rec|REC|rec to Recreation

Hi guys,

I wanted to see if comunity is fine with proposed fix of Recreation abbreviation (Rec|REC|rec) to it’s full form?

I have used following overpass query:
and I could see that there are different variations of word Recreation that I think it would be nice to change to it’s full form.

Also I’ve been able to find GC abbreviations for Golf Course, mtn for Mountain and med for Medical.

I’m keen to apply these changes for you.


Better ask on the OSM US Slack channel, that’s where folks in the US typically hang out.

Before continuing, also be sure to read https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Automated_Edits_code_of_conduct

Thanks for the info.

Thanks for the link too, however, I’ll do this manualy anyway.

Note that doing stuff en-masse, but manually doesn’t get you around this code of conduct…

There’re no much edits that I want to change. Not more then 140 in US and about same amount in UK. So, I’m fine with manual work. The question is just if everyone are OK with this?

This is why you should follow the CoC for automated edits (even if you perform your edits manually). Esp. the section: https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Automated_Edits_code_of_conduct#Document_and_discuss_your_plans
