I would like to discuss an import process of a series of shapefile for a
research project regarding Caracas - Venezuela slums. Specifically, 2
Slums' Corridors named "23 de Enero - San Juan" and "Catia Sur".

The data to import was collected in a multi-week workshop with
professionals working directly in-place in the slums.

It is to note that the area intended to modify is mostly empty (data-less).

In order to facilitate the data import, first was downloaded the data for
the area of interest from the website
https://www.geofabrik.de/data/download.html

Then the data were compared, matched and updated according to the fields
and attributes of the shapefiles gathered from the above-mentioned website.

The resulting shapefiles were imported to the JOSM Java Editor and saved in
OSM format. Then each layer was uploaded to the sandbox server
http://api06.dev.openstreetmap.org/api

The changesets uploaded to the sandbox are as follow:

- Points of Worship

https://api06.dev.openstreetmap.org/changeset/149902

- Points of Interest

https://api06.dev.openstreetmap.org/changeset/149903

- Points of Interest - Polygons

https://api06.dev.openstreetmap.org/changeset/149904

- Places

https://api06.dev.openstreetmap.org/changeset/149905

- Land Use

https://api06.dev.openstreetmap.org/changeset/149906


This text description was also uploaded to the wiki page for user jesuzv
and that user was created specifically for this import task.
