I have got a few thousand cleaned GPX files of motorbikes. These trace files majorly represent missing roads in OSM (which I have derived by using months of bikers data and identifying trace points which are not near any of the road segments in OSM). I want to contribute to OSM on a regular basis and want to take an opinion on my workflow for submission of these trace files to OSM.

Workflow:

  1. Upload all GPX files in bulk using OSM UI or using API.
  2. Pass some GPS-tags, e.g. name, id, status, etc. So, that I can query data that I have uploaded.
  3. Have a team of 2-3 people who can then use JOSM or other editors to make ways/roads from this GPX data to OSM

Questions -

  1. Is this a correct workflow for uploading and making ways/roads from GPX files?
  2. Can I use GPS-tags to track of how many gpx files have been converted into ways/roads? Also, Is there any alternative to have this capability?
