I am happy to point everyone to my Guide for setting up an overpass server with
a database initialed from an extract for limited area - extracts are from Geofabrik.de.
My Guide is at github here
Hope somebody will find this useful.
This Guide is still has unfinished work! That said; I am straggling with “areas” creation.
If anybody has any suggestion about my approach using a loop with IMAX count in my “op_make_area.sh” script I appreciate any input in this regard. I know area making has
seen a lot of changes in overpass.
The extract OSM data files vary wildly, so does the count of closed ways and relations in them. I need to consider small areas along with large areas extracts. I appreciate any input.
Thank you all again.
ZERO reply - as nothing - to this post.
I have updated my ‘op_update_db.sh’ script. It includes mergeChanges() function now; change files are merged first before the update. Of course only when we have multiple change files.
