Thanks for your answer.

Your code is right but it gives twice the same agenda and it was not my

I want to recognize which are the files my notes come from.

I add a filetag "carto" on my file carto.org to separate the agenda view
and with your example, I rewrite my command :

("no" "osm"
         ((tags "CATEGORY=\"openstreetmap\"+note"
                ((org-agenda-remove-tags t)))
          (tags "CATEGORY=\"openstreetmap\"+carto"
                ((org-agenda-files '("/home/momo/org/ordi/carto.org"))
                 (org-agenda-remove-tags t)
         ((org-agenda-files (cons "/home/momo/org/ordi/carto.org"

I use to put notes about the same subject in different files or sections
like "answer mail", "program". I just keep important and definitive
notes in special files (here "carto.org"). By this way I can see and
reorganize all of them.

I think the most difficult about org-mode is not about configuration -
documentation, faqs, tutorials are very good - but about organizing
files, todo, tags, etc. in the best way to keep these objects small,
simple and well structured.
