GeoGit based OpenStreetMap Import Workflows

Day: Sunday
Time: 4:00pm

Imports to OpenStreetMap are often a contentious issue for various reasons. One of the primary problems is the lack of a clearly defined workflow for dealing with corrections and updates to the originally imported data. This talk will explore a GeoGit based workflow for performing imports and keeping them in sync with changes to the original datasets over time. It is intended to present a proposed solution to what is often seen as an intractable problem in the OSM community and to examine the ways in which GeoGit could lead to a more distributed and decentralized architecture for OSM.
