Hello,

I tried to make some modification to some forest in france (Changeset: 124566485, Changeset: 124566904, #Changeset: 124571114). The goal was to add some data from a json I got from the ONF, french national forest organization but I messed things up I think. I think I overwrote the changes of some previous contributor which is a problem because I think the new changes don't fit osm formatting. What is the best way to do the merge ? Should I try to revert my changesets and do everything by hand ? Is there a canonical way to import data from external (geojson) source that I did not see (for now I tried using geojson plugin for josm).

Thanks.

Hi, It does look like quite a mess around that area with a lot of strangely tagged areas. I would say revert everything and start again. Do you want me to revert for you?

Please be aware that there are guidelines for importing data into OSM, please see here:- https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Import/Guidelines

Yes if you could revert for me it would be great. I am still learning how to use josm.

Thanks.

I reviewed the import guideline and I will send email to the mailing list talk-fr. I did not think I had to do it because the wiki says that the source is OK and the job was already half done (half the forest was already imported).

OK, all three changesets are now reverted. The database is now back to its prior state. Stick with JOSM, there's a lot to learn but it's worth it. Importing, all I know is there's often a lot of debate about how it's done.
