ABORTED! Reason: The process to import administration boundaries was replaced by an image traced using the JOSM PicLayer plugin.

Salgar, Colombia LandSlides - Data Imports Coordination Page

OCHA Colombia Source Data

Ocha Colombia has provided following URL with shapes source files:

  • Administration boundaries of "veredas" in Antioquia Departament of Colombia (ES:La division veredal de Antioquia) [1]
  • River layer (ES:Capa de ríos simples) [2]
  • Area of Interest (AOI): [3]

Import method

Data in under revision to stablish an import process

  • AOI: seem is equal to Salgar municipality administrative boundary, so importation of this layer is dismissed (by the moment).
  • River layer: seems like a low resolution reference, so importation of this layer is dismissed (by the moment).
  • Administration "veredas" boundaries: This layer has 5033 objects, data duplication is estimated in 5%. A "vereda" is similar like hamlet or village

Imports will coverage only "veredas" boundaries layer.

Convert data to OSM XML

Explain here how shapes files will be converted to OSM XML.

Cleaning data

With 5% of potential data duplication, the method proposed to clean it is manual using JOSM.

Import task

To coordinate this import a task in tareas will be open.
