That worked out perfectly, thanks!


Iván, si puedo ir a SotM otra vez, beberemos una cerveza juntos. :)

Now, moving on to the second question: the largest shapefile
(Quadras.shp, with the streets and the blocks) has 68 MB, and after
conversion (and two hours later) it becomes a huge 416 MB .osm file,
and I can't open it with JOSM (ok, after half an hour it loads up on
the editor but I can't do anything because the program freezes). How
can I split it in smaller files for an easier edition?

Thanks again,
