Zh OpenStreetMap, new feature – import data


In this release I started implementation of import data from my other extensions (Zh GoogleMap and Zh YandexMap).

Today I did release for your tests to understand what it will process data. In admin panel added new menu item Utilities; this page will contain buttons to do different actions.

Today evening or tomorrow I’ll add into wiki some explainations.

Now you can do

  • check last log
  • try to import data for Placemark Groups

When you import data you can get some errors or warnings. For this case you can see last log. It saved in database, and can be overridden by next import task, but you have ability to print this log

For example, you can get warning by this case:

I import groups with it’s category belonging. Categories for different extensions – it is different.

If category is not exists for Zh OpenStreetMap, I import data without this category, but in log I will add information about that – for what new placemark group (which is created from group) category was not added.

Categories have to be the same hierarchy and aliases.

Due to complex category creation, I will not do import categories, you have to enter it manually.

But in future I’ll add button for pre-import checks, for example, for categories and placemark groups.
