This covers just one of a slew of programs for converting shapefiles to OSM data, and a very limited one at that. For other, more comprehensive (but possibly more difficult to use) methods see Import/Shapefile.

shape2osm is a single purpose python script to convert POINT shapefiles to .OSM files. Do not feed it anything else. It will croak. Or help improve it to make it do more things.

Download

Get shape2osm here.

Setup

Prerequisites:

Install these,

chmod 0755 shape2osm.py
