Hi Tim and Richard,

battlefields which would be suitable.

Plaques) then we can say it's notable for sure. At any rate the event
should be able to be verified by another mapper.

I tried to describe a bit about the notation of the categories in wiki page
[1]. Is correct? (Or in the right way?)

appropriate in OHM however - at one geographical level this is statistical
information, and one that might be better linked to the historic geographic
area. At individual level it may not be notable - but a prominent
assasination might be.

I agree with you. In this case, "crimes" were a example.


> i have an ongoing interest in doing a battlefield project. i think we
need to think about what kind of framework we need to describe events, what
it should include and what it can omit. we probably want to develop use
cases so that we can think about how the pieces should go together.

Would the features of this framework be like the tags? Which types of data
and their attributes can be included? Example: buildings like churchs, that
have a name, start date and etc.


I have described the basics of historical tags on the wiki page [1].

To be able to do data insertion through API: do I need a specific
authorization? Or to insert data, do I need to create a server node
connected to OSM?


PS: I'm new on OSM. So excuse me for any "rookie" question.
