Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?


In the Nantes city for public transport we have two values of the tag networks that are used.

On the 'terrain' the real value displayed every where is 'TAN' but 50% of the relations are tagged with 'fr_tan'. https://taginfo.openstreetmap.org/tags/network=fr_tan#map

What is the best way to migrate those values to 'TAN' ?

Do someone has already done a script for this ? is their an existing tool to do that ? jOSM ?

Yes, using JOSM (possibly together with Overpass API, see also the link to it on the taginfo page) seems to be sufficient here (see that other question for example). However, I think that if you plan to use this feature you first should get to know the editor and know yourself how to use it for such mass-retagging.

However, please do not just do it yourself/alone, for various reasons. See https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Automated_Edits_code_of_conduct and https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Mechanical_Edit_Policy .
