osm2postgresql is a Linux script loading openstreetmap data into a postgresql database setting up if needed a server & database (postgis+hstore). Advanced processing is performed, easing rendering. http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Osm2postgresql

  • Optional: installs a postgres server and configure it; create a database (with postgis and hstore)
  • Loads osm data into the database and process it
  • Creates and fix polygons
  • Fixes small streams, canals... on riverbanks (nicer rendering)
  • Creates 3 tables that are ready for rendering: polygons, ways, nodes_with_tags
  • In each table, populates a "class" field that you can link to your symbology
  • Helps you easily render OSM data in your GIS application or web server
  • Keeps [almost] ALL tags (in two fields: 'tags' as text and 'tagshstore' as hstore)
  • 14 March 2011: version 02 (beta) released.
  • Still a work in progress: stay tuned!

    I had a requirement to develop water features for Europe. This script was the only GIS tool I could find to convert the OSM polylines and multipolygons (ie. riverbanks, etc.) to polygonal features. Thanks for your work on this project!
