There are at least two duplicates in CityStrides for Colombian cities.
- As far as I can tell (I am not a local), the ones in the “Distrito Capital” region are incorrect and should simply be removed from CS. The region “Distrito Capital” can be removed too.
- Bogotá does seem to have partitions at admin_level 8, so those could potentially be added to Bogotá Distrito Capital - Municipio as nested cities.
- For styling, it could be possible to rename the remaining “Bogotá Distrito Capital - Municipio” just “Bogotá” and the “Bogotá, Distrito Capital” to just “Distrito Capital”.
- General remark: a region’s page could do with borders on its map as well as a link to the OSM entity it is based off of (if any).
This is funky™
The region “Distrito Capital” is definitely incorrect. I created Colombia regions from admin level 4, which would be Relation: Bogotá, Distrito Capital (12893646) | OpenStreetMap
I started cleanup work by moving the cities in that region over to Bogotá, Distrito Capital, Colombia - CityStrides
Then I deleted Soacha from Bogotá, Distrito Capital because it’s really in Cundinamarca
Some randomly selected admin level 8 places (from overpass turbo) are:
I’d really like someone l local to chime in on whether that admin level 8 is a suitable candidate for being added as nested cities to Bogotá Distrito Capital - Municipio, Bogotá, Distrito Capital - CityStrides … or if they should be left out and Bogotá, Bogotá, Distrito Capital - CityStrides should be the one nested city.
It seems to me like that existing Bogotá isn’t super useful, because it only has ~100 streets less than the larger one.
I’m less inclined to update/customize naming, because that’s been pulled from OSM data. I don’t want to head down the road of custom names in CityStrides that differ from OSM.
As far as the region pages go, I actually didn’t save much data for regions from OSM. I’ll have to go back and re-collect data to make any of those requests possible. If you feel strongly about the idea, I’d suggest adding it to Ideas as a new post.
Edit: Un-marking this as resolved since I don’t have a solid answer on admin level 8 vs existing Bogotá
