After a big bunch of bureaucracy we have been giving green light to request government geodata. The requested data includes mostly seperate landplots, roads and rivers.
We originally were told we'd receive the data in DWG, but we've found out that the government agency is using ArcGIS.
We're using QGIS, and we were going to import/convert the DWG's again - that's double work. Therefore we'd like to reform our request by asking for ArcGIS data rather than DWG's.
Local bureacracy won't allow us to sit down with the actual people doing the export. We have to write down our request.
What do we ask them? What method would be easiest for them to export (ArcGIS) and for us to import (QGIS)?
