How to set proprietary geospatial data free with GDAL/OGR and Proj4

by Alessandro Amici for EuroPython 2012

The good news is that there’s a lot of geospatial data out there, the bad news is that a lot of it is distributed in obscure, custom-made, proprietary formats which are not well supported by your preferred geospatial tools.

In this talk we show how to read, validate, correct and translate to standard GIS formats the official land-registry/cadastral data distributed by the Italian government in the custom-made CXF format with the help of the powerful geoprocessing and format translation stack in Python. The whole process and many intermediate steps are completely generic and may be applied to reading and translating any proprietary geospatial format.
