Dear Mappers,

i’m having a small problem here trying to import the planet.osm into QGis.
I’m using windows but the the given explainations seem to be for Linux.
Is is possible to use the same Scripts for Windows (I have ActivePerl installed)?

I’m really really bad at programming, i hope someone can help me out.

kind regards


Yes, most OSM developers use Linux, but the Perl scripts should work on Windows as well.

Paste the code into a file you named: ‘convert_osm2mif.perl’. Then open a ‘DOS’ window and execute the following command:

perl convert_osm2mif.perl data.osm > data.mif

(or something like that :))
What I understand from the wiki page, that should be it… Good luck.
