Starting from the Strasbourg ESO Catalogue (SEC) of Planetary Nebulae (PNe), the largest PNe compilation available with ~ 1500 objects, we undertook a comprehensive study of the whole PN population, never carried out so far, only using on-line catalogues and data from public imaging surveys. The study includes the PN dynamics through their measured proper motions (PMs), the study of their galactocentric orbits, the study of their interactions with the interstellar medium (ISM), and the study of their UV-to-IR spectral energy distribution (SED). As a preliminary step required to perform cross-correlations with on-line catalogues, we first went through a systematic reassessment of the PN coordinates (Kerber et al. 2003a).
