Where to download OSM POIs?

Hello! I just could not find POI dataset on OSM planet website. Could you please help? Many thanks.


You may have to extract them yourself. I don’t think anyone is currently providing a POI-only extract.

Hi, Alex Mckee, thanks for your reply.

Do you mean I have to check the appropriate key/value pairs of all the nodes in my interested area to get the different kinds of POI? Here I find a place for downloading http://downloads.cloudmade.com/europe/sweden#breadcrumbs . Did they do that in the same way?


Hi, any suggestion for how to extract POIs from OSM data? Thanks a lot.


Could it not be done via the XAPI, something like this:


plus a little post-processing.
