Recently I downloaded  a xml file from the Election commision GIS data that
provides accurate information about certain locations which is hard to come
by from other resouces.See the example data from the xml file:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>
*-* <file:///J:/Downloads/AC_LATLONG.xml#> <dataroot>
 *-* <file:///J:/Downloads/AC_LATLONG.xml#> <AC_LATLONG>
 * * <ST_CODE>*S01*</ST_CODE>
 * * <ST_NAME>*ANDHRA PRADESH*</ST_NAME>
 * * <AC_NO>*259*</AC_NO>
 * * <AC_NAME>*Sircilla*</AC_NAME>
 * * <latitude>*84.6225571492*</latitude>
 * * <longitude>*19.0244533588*</longitude>
* * </AC_LATLONG>

It can be seen that the LAT and LONG are accurate to 10 digits of decimals
which we cannot obtain from other sources.

Is there any way to make these lat longs useful for mapping. Is there any
script that could convert this file into some sort data that is
understandable by JOSM editor.
