This week we (me, simone and sbiribizio) launched the new version of the 'Italian Local OpenStreetMap Extracts': a website from which users can download slices of the italy-latest.pbf provided by GeoFabrik on a regional or municipal level, converted also in different formats.

The live version is kindly hosted on a virtual instance at http://estratti.openstreetmap.it and the code is on Github

The web interface is written in php (with the flightphp microframework), allows multiple languages (currently italian and english) and queries a postgresql database popupulated by the extraction scripts. The scripts are a mix of bash, perl and python and require some binaries commonly available in Ubuntu. As background layer in the maps we use Wikimedia Maps
