Wondering if there’s any way to output a regular OSM xml file from JOSM, instead of JOSM’s adapted format.
See here for details on JOSM’s file format: http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/OSM_XML
Basically I would like to draw maps in JOSM offline and then end up with a regular OSM xml file that I can use in other programs. I do not want to upload this data to OpenStreetMaps because it will not be accurate mapping.
Thanks for your help!
you might try the tool osmconvert, which supports a lot of formats.
I did not realize there was a problem: I have an area I make paper maps for with data from OSM, elevation data from SRTM and some specific data not appropriate for OSM that I created and edit in JOSM and save in a local .osm file. I am using Mapnik for the actual composition with no issues.
Maybe other data consumers have an issue with JOSM .osm files. Or maybe I got lucky with the type of items I have in the local .osm file.
when necessary, try the mentioned http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Osmconvert … when calling that programm in a command line with parameter -h it shows the parameter --fake-version
PS: why is this feature of --fake-version not listed properly in the OSM wiki ???
After doing more research I realized what the problem is that I need a solution for:
I am drawing maps in JOSM with mostly new content, JOSM gives a negative node id to any new content until it is uploaded to OSM and then it is given a positive id once it is merged.
What I need is to output a file with positive node id’s on new content from JOSM. This data will never be uploaded and merged to OSM. installing a private server copy of OSM is not an option unfortunately.
Does anyone know of settings I can change in josm to achieve this, a plugin, or a conversion program that would do that offline?
Thanks so much for your help!
