I’ve begining to display an osm database using geofabrik datas and osmosis importer. I made the landmarks (points), the linears (roads) and I’m doing the display of landcovers (relations).
I want to begin by the waterways (rivers and channels). So I placed my point of view in a place where there is a big river and some channels, but the display is not like the reality. After a little debug work, I saw in the database that is was not a problem of my displayer, but of the database which was poor regarding waterways.
So I think I missed something. OSM datas of Geofabrik comes with shape files. Do I have to use them for water relation ? Are they aditional datas or just an alternative ?
Maybe Geofabrik datas are really poor and I have to change the import file ?
Also, is it a good choice to use osmosis and not osm2pgsql ?
Thank you very much, and sorry for my bad english,
