Hi everyone,

I was looking at some XML data, trying to see if I could parse out a list of all the streets in Indiana and I saw this record.

If you look at it, it's got two name tags, "Mahogany Dr" and "Augusta Ln." How can there be two names?

Where did that XML come from? I'm asking because the API returns only one name tag for that way as you can see by visiting

It looks to be corrupt XML. The latter bit is from

I downloaded the indiana.osm file. That's where I got it from.

@jaskiemr: Well, where did you download the file? Can't you just give us the URL?

@sleske a quick guess would be Cloudmade

You should contact cloudmade, on first glimpse it looks as if they have a problem creating the extracts

Which mirror would you use in order to download Indiana roads then?
