POI Txt2Osm

Posted by Remiguel on 24 July 2013 in English (English)

I have just finished to write a php script to convert csv file to osm format. I wrote this script to import my own poi in osm database. input file has to be csv (coma separated values) e.g. -3.7005864,40.4891297,”text”,”text2”,”text3” or text without quotes. The osm file can be read with JOSM, to check the data before importing them in osm database. The source code will be available soon on my personal web page.

tested succesfully with Firefox and Safari. Not working with IE

  1. Site doesn’t function right now.
  2. Why didn’t you use GPSbabel for that?

1) You’re right. The server is currently down. I will put my code on a mirror server. 2) I’ve used for a couple years ago GPSbabel but never saw a conversion to OSM format. I will check the last update. Thanks for the tip.

  1. The server is up again and additionally I’ve left my code on a mirror server.
  2. I’ve done a short try of GPSbabel. This software surprising me every time I use it. The number of conversion format is really amazing.
    The way of converting files to osm format is ok but need a good preparation of your source data.
    I code my php script with another approach, with drop-down lists to select keys and categories.
