maptool - parse osm textfile and convert to Navit binfile format


For OSM XML data: bzcat planet.osm.bz2 | maptool mymap.bin [-h] [-5 <file>] [-6] [-a
<level>] [-c] -[-d <connect string] [-e <phase>] [-i <file>] [-k] [-M] [-N] [-o] [-r
<file>] [-s <phase>] [-S <size>] [-w] [-W] [-U] [-z <level>]

For OSM Protobuf/PBF data: maptool --protobuf -i planet.osm.pbf planet.bin [-h] [-5
<file>] [-6] [-a <level>] [-c] [-e <phase>] [-i <file>] [-k] [-M] [-N] [-o] [-P] [-r
<file>] [-s <phase>] [-S <size>] [-w] [-W] [-U] [-z <level>]


maptool parses osm textfile and converts it to Navit binfile format


-h (--help)
display a short help message

-4 (--md5)
set file where to write md5 sum

-6 (--64bit)
set zip 64 bit compression

-a (--attr-debug-level) <level>
control which data is included in the debug attribute

-c (--dump-coordinates)
dump coordinates after phase 1

-d (--db) <connect string>
get osm data out of a postgresql database with osm simple scheme and given connect

-e (--end) <phase>
end at specified phase

-i (--input-file) <file>
specify the input file name (OSM), overrules default stdin

-k (--keep-tmpfiles)
do not delete tmp files after processing. useful to reuse them

-N (--nodes-only)
process only nodes

-o (--coverage)
converts every street to street_coverage, resulting in a big fat black line. You
can overlay this map with another vector map or image map, and every street you
will still see is missing in the -o map

-P (--protobuf)
input file is protobuf

-r (--rule-file) <file>
read mapping rules from specified file

-s (--start) <phase>
start at specified phase

-S (--slice-size) <phrase>
limit memory to use for some large internal buffers, in bytes. Default is 1 GB.
Smaller slices reduce peak memory usage, at the cost of increased processing time.

-w (--dedupe-ways)
ensure no duplicate ways or nodes. useful when using several input files

-W (--ways-only)
process only ways

-U (--unknown-country)
add objects with unknown country to index

-z (--compression-level) <level>
set the compression level
