The Long name is :
Postgis Openstreetmap Script Repository for Osmosis Pgsnapshot Schema
Here at Telenav , in the Map Analyst Team we use Postgis a lot.
In the real world, Postgis and OpenStreetMap seems to be used more only in Academics or by people that know a medium or high degree of programming.
I think that we should change that and make more simple the availability of Postgis as a tool that can help us visualize information's from the OSM database much faster.
3 Ways of making Postgis more easy to use with OSM data
I. - SCOPE
For this i will release SCOPE ( databaSe Creator Osmosis Postgis loadEr ), a command line tool for easy loading of a osm.pbf file into Postgis, via osmosis
- You can try scope in the repo
- Also, you will find there a Postgis example that i posted there.
II. A central place for Postgis OSM Scripts
The idea is to have a central place were we can find different Postgis scripts, so when we want to do a statistic or something regarding the OSM data, to have a place were you can download, fork and store the scripts that you are using in your Projects
III. Give it a more sexy and short name
It also need a more simple name, i tried for to hours to think what name to give it, and i stoped and put this long name to the github repo. Please suggest a better and shorter name or acronym
