The Geofabrik Download Server

A session at State of the Map US 2013

  • Frederik Ramm

Saturday 8th June, 2013

10:45am to 11:15am (PST)

Ever since the planet file became too large for the average end user to process, Geofabrik have made country extracts available for people to download. It was just a few countries initially, but meanwhile there are daily updates for most countries in the world, and even sub-regions for some of those where OSM is big. This technical talk explains the chain of open source tools that powers the download server, explains the problems and limitations of the approach used on that server, and compares it to other ways of producing daily or even sub-daily regional OpenStreetMap extracts.
