Hi all,

I announed some day ago that I could use data from my urban community
(group of city). (if you want a preview of coverage :

After a rendez-vous, it occurs it all the data from the city that I
can import ! it's really great... BUT :

all the files are .shp .dbf etc... from ESRI software. I can use them
into QGis, but what are the different ways to convert in a .osm to
upload with josm for example.

I am looking for experience from guys who have already imported datas
just like these.

I have shapefiles with both POI (red light, recyble bin,etc...) and
polygon datas (parking, school, building, landuse...).

Files are binary files... I could convert to csv, and make a script,
but I guess there are already solutions being...

Any clue ?
