Problems with creating rasterized waterbody map

Hello there,
I am new to OpenStreetMap and I try to figure out how to extract a waterbody map (not only coastlines) from the planet-latest.osm.pbf file.
Therefore I found this tutorial on github:
I installed all the dependencies and tried the first command but I get the following error message:
ERROR 1: “natural” not recognised as an available field.
Do I have to create a SQL-Database or something like that from the pbf file?
Thanks for the help :slight_smile:

Read the documentation of ogr2ogr and about its config file which tells it how to interpret OSM data.

Also, try removing that or natural=‘water’ clause to check if it succeeds at all without it. Maybe ogr2ogr doesn’t work at all, but throws a fake error instead.
