List of Israel Places

Hi all,

I've created a list of all places in Israel.

Please comment on ways to enhance it and make it better.


Please remember that it's still a work in progress.

It is a machine generated list, so don't edit it.
Use its talk page for comments, or better is this thread.

The filter I used is "places whose name tag is in Hebrew"

In the future I plan to divide by letter.


Places that have a polygon but not a node means that there are some discrepancies with the names (most likely), or the node is missing (unlikely...)

Re: List of Israel Places

Great thing and good idea (could be from me smile )

But why only in English and not Hebrew?
Could be nice Google search feedback having also the Hebrew namings in the list.

Re: List of Israel Places

I've added a counter for the place polygons.
About half the places have polygons. We still have a long way to go.

A few were added today, and 3 were deleted yesterday by mistake and re-added today,
so I hope tomorrow's stats will be a little better :-)

I added several recognized Bedouin villages in the south.

I also went over several places, and changed them.
They aren't villages anymore.
e.g. Avukah, Havat Shalem, etc.

Done.
There's no "Yokneam"
Just "Yokneam Illit" which is the small town, and "Yokneam Hamoshava" which is the village.
Yokneam Illit is what people usually mean when they say "Yokneam"

1274, polygons: 1211

Re: List of Israel Places

I went through from the top to the letter G and fixed everything.
I'm now at H

Somehow Haifa is showing as missing. It has a relation instead of the normal place tags.
Is this a problem ?

Re: List of Israel Places

Finished with "L"

Another problematic place is ליפתא : http://www.openstreetmap.org/browse/node/278478735

Looks like there are around 27 left to go through. I expect even less than that.

Re: List of Israel Places

All done.

Lifta: Ruins near Jerusalem
Mahane Israel: Old Maabara. Doesn't exist anymore.
Migdal Afek: Ruins. There are 3 ruins nodes there. I believe we can leave only one, and delete the other 2...
Migron: It's too new to appear in Bing's images. I drew an approximate north-south rectangle, which is the general shape of the place.

Re: List of Israel Places

Do you mean all places are done or just the problematic places are done?
