I think it has been mentioned that unfortunately a number of buildings in
Ottawa that were deleted already have some of the attributes that Stats
Canada are after.
I think step one is hands off any mapping of buildings for the moment in
Ottawa. That unfortunately includes Stats crowd sourcing initiative until
the reverts are done.
*Note to Bjenk can you put a sorry out of service notice up or something?*
Note to Frederick can you let us know when they can continue?
Step two will be restart the Stats Canada web site and data collection.
Step three will be for someone to communicate with the import forum
as per the wiki. I think all our ducks and processes are lined up its just
a matter of explaining them.
Finally then I think restart the import process but very slowly and with
Stats Canada can work without the building import but there is
adanger that new inexperienced mappers drawing building outlines in iD
will produce the sort of results both Pierre and I have seen in HOT and I
think that is to be avoided if at all possible.
Thanks for the update Frederick.
