Tag Combination and Synthesis in OpenStreetMap

The geographically organised objects in OpenStreetMap are usually tagged with a large number of tags. A side effect of the wiki ethos, however, is that tags are not used consistently and there is a lot of duplication and overlap. Building on previous work analysing tags, we will now look for tags that that have similar meanings or serve the same purpose. A demonstration application is to be developed for the project, which will give suggestions for combining or changing the current tags assigned to an object.
Most (if not all) of the programming will be done in Python.
