Forest import

Hi,

I have just blocked user posiki_import_forest in https://www.openstreetmap.org/user_blocks/3103 with a request to please discuss their import here or in another channel with the Finnish community. I could not immediately find any such discussion, and an endeavour of such magnitude clearly mandates discussion. I might of course have overlooked a discussion that has been going on.

I have randomly checked some of the imported forest polygons against aerial imagery and found many to be not matching the imagery (but this could also be outdated imagery). Many of the imported polygons had totally artificial "wobbly" and over-noded outlines e.g. the southern edge of this

https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/71337 … 7/24.87802

is a very clean curve along the road, and not a 30-node wobbly line. The imported objects carry a source tag on the object rather than on the changeset.

I don't think that the methodology used here - documented here https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Fin … 9_Creation - is sufficiently honed to roll it out for all of Finland but I would defer to the Finnish community for that.
