Move highway names into ref tags

Hi,

the following highways have numbers as a name. I think the ref tag would be a lot more appropriate.

Any concerns moving this from name into the ref tag?

Shall I also change the road classification based on the number? 3 digit into secondary? 4 into tertiary?

osm_id;name;ref;highway

Re: Move highway names into ref tags

In my opinion there are good reasons not to do such global changes:

Thus I strongly recommend don't do a global change. Leave it as it is or send individual notes to the mappers who introduced the numbers in the individual "name" tag.

Re: Move highway names into ref tags

Then again, it is a wiki and anybody can change anything. I have come across many such roads and I always correct them. Often, the road number is in the name and the tag, so it shows up twice on the map.

I would not change the classification, as on the ground things may look differently.

I'm also sure that I have inadvertently put the road number into the name field on some roads and I would be more than happy if somebody cleaned up after me.

Regards,
Peter.

Re: Move highway names into ref tags

I just checked the forum. Sorry for the late answer.

@Willi: No the list header is right. That list indicates what I try to ask. Someone put the ref number of the street into the name tag. So I ask if I/we should bulk change this and put the number into the ref tag instead of the name tag.

The second part of the question is about the classification.
As it is also documented on the wiki we tried to classify the roads based on official classification (and thus by following the ref number):
http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Thai … sification

A 3-digit ref number would indicate a secondary. Some of the roads in the list above are classified as primary.
