Dear OSM community,
This is an announcement and request for comments, suggestions, and approval of land cover information data import for the territory of Sweden.
* Import plan: 
* Raster data source: Sweden's Environmental Protection Agency (Naturvårdsverket) 
* Data license: CC0
* Data URL: 
The whole importing effort is expected to split into at least 290 pieces, one per county (kommun).
Initial chunks of import data will be submitted using a dedicated account called Atakua-imports (my primary account is called Atakua).
Later, to distribute the work, other accounts controlled by additional volunteers from the talk-se community may be used.
Work distribution and coordination, including information about accounts used for importing data for subareas, is tracked in this table: 
A local mailing list thread dedicated to discussion of this import, technical problems of data conversion, filtering, validation etc.: 
A lot of technical details about the source data conversion, cleanup and conflict resolution are covered in the import plan and custom processing scripts . I am willing to address any concerns not covered by existing documentation.
To get a first impression about this import, please take a look at the following OSM-datasets prepared for three separate counties.
1. Staffantorp county , in fact, requires no import at all because present land cover data is already good enough.
2. Stockholm county . New land cover data remaining after conflation  consists of less than a 100 objects for that subarea. Most likley, it is not worth pursuing importing anything for this county either — forests there are already well mapped.
3. Vingåker  county is the first example of a subarea with poor pre-existing forest information, thus benefiting from this import.
Looking forward to hearing input from you!
С наилучшими пожеланиями,
Med vänliga hälsningar,
With best regards,
