CHATHAM ISLANDS: Imported
MAINLAND: Not imported
"amenity=grave_yard" for geo-points.
"landuse=cemetery" is only for polygon areas. (linz's cemetery_poly)
"historic=grave" for individual grave sites on their own (linz's grave_pnt)
930 points nationwide. Only 3 have names :(
2010-04-14 In current NZ.osm data
63 cases of <tag k="landuse" v="cemetery"/>
1 case of <tag k="amenity" v="cemetery"/>
12 cases of <tag k="amenity" v="grave_yard"/> and plenty of
these seem to be polygons which should be changed
We could just import the lot and deal with the small number of
duplicates on a case by case basis - zenbu

cemetery adn graveyards are different items. a gaveyard is generally a small site, in a town/city centre. a cemetery is usually on the outskirts of a town, and is newer and much bigger. the point=graveyard, poly=cemetery distinction is not correct. either can be either. the poly is used when the item has been mapped extensively. see wp entries for more info. the existing items should not be changed unless they are surveyed on foot first
HB: I expect we can trust that LINZ would have mapped out anything of appreciable size as a polygon already, and that cemetery_pnt will be left for very small fenced in areas, but more established than the grave_pnt layer.
