start_date This is the date the building was built/opened. It can only contain one single year (eg. 1970) or day (using the format yyyy-mm-dd eg. 1970-05-26). If you have to estimate the year, pick a value that fits into any of these brackets:
  1. pre 1900
  2. 1900 - 1920
  3. 1920 - 1940
  4. 1940 - 1960
  5. 1960 - 1980
  6. 1980 - 2000
  7. 2000 - now

You *must* fill this in else the date layer in QGIS will not work.

building If construction of the building(s) took more than 1 year you may namespace the building key eg. building:1960-1970=construction. See Date namespace.
