This describes a plan to manual map high quality landuse data in Catalunya (Spain) using the most updated data available from the local government.

The scope of this import (including enclaves) is 32,108 km² (12,397 sq mi), divided in 42 counties differing in sizes from 150 to 1700 km² (58 to 656 sq mi).

Datasets are shapefiles (SHP) published by county, so will be broken into 947 municipalities (0.4 to 300 km², 0.15 to 116 sq mi) in order to import them piecemeal.

On every resulting municipality, polygons with same landuses will be merged to simplify data. After that, landuse attribute will be translated into the best matching OSM tag and uploaded to the database.
