Hello, I have a few initial questions

Data is downloadable here

People that are working on the raw files comes from previous experiences in
imports (Emilia Romagna, Veneto, Liguria) and the conversion I think would
be smooth enough because the files are conformant to Inspire European
Directive, take for example this pdf related to the multiprecision database

The conversion rules will be posted onto the wiki.


Best regards,
