OpenStreetMap

Preannouncement for a new project with a long name

Posted by baditaflorin on 8 January 2016 in English (English)

The Long name is :

Postgis Openstreetmap Script Repository for Osmosis Pgsnapshot Schema

History

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

Scope

  • 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

Its still a linux only thing, but at least you dont have to know the osmosis commands, etc

I am guessing that you don`t have linux installed or put in a virtual machine ?
