Importing the CIA WDB files

wdb2osm is an 0.5-compatible import script for converting CIA World Database data to osm.

Using the script

Please get the script from SVN: browser/applications/utils/import/wdb2osm.

Next, get the data from http://www.evl.uic.edu/pape/data/WDB/

Extract the archive you are interested in and run the script (e.g. perl ./wdb2osm.pl WDB/europe-body).

This will give you lots of osm files which you should upload via osm.

The precise tagging schema for national boundaries is yet to be finalized (See the Talk page), but for the moment, please use:

  • <tag k="boundary" v="administrative" />
  • <tag k="source" v="CIA World database II" />
  • <tag k="wdb:source" v="CIA World database II - <Areaname> <segment nr>" />, e.g. <tag k="source" v="CIA WDB Europe segment 4" />
  • <tag k="left:country" v="Name of the country LEFT of the boundary (relative to arrow direction)" />
  • <tag k="right:country" v="Name of the country RIGHT of the boundary (relative to arrow direction)" />

Since revision 5190, those tags are automatically added to the generated osm file. Please be sure to replace the ???? placeholders with the appropiate values.

Optionally, you can add

  • <tag k="border_type" v="nation" />

Examples

  • Edirne on the border of Turkey / Greece: [1]

To-Do-List

  • Import, tag, verify
  • Define a Relation type for boundaries
  • automatically add tags to the generated OSM file

This was used to import

  • the Norwegian border towards Sweden, Finland and Russia.
  • the Turkish borders
  • Slovenian borders towards Italy, Austria, Hungary (WDB is old, so it doesn't yet contain border with Croatia, or any other new border since 1990)

Status colours

This shall be a collaborative page, where everyone can report the import status of the single segments. Import status might be :

  •        
: RED : Not imported yet
  •        
: YELLOW : Import running
  •        
: ORANGE : Import finished, correctness not verified, tagging maybe also needed
  •        
: GREEN : Import finished, correctness verified by spot tests.
  •        
: BLUE : Already imported from different source
