An XSD (XML Schema) file defines the format of an XML file, in terms of expected elements, how they are nested and repeated, and what attributes they have. In the OpenStreetMap world we use XML for various things, so it may be useful to define XML structures with an XSD file. We might also use DTDs
.osm format / map call
- API v0.5/XSD - An attempt to do this back in 2008, based on API v0.5/DTD. This defines the structure as it was for v0.5 of the API.
- API v0.6/XSD - Ran the DTD through a W3C DTD -> XSD converter.
- API v0.6/XSD for SSIS - An XSD for osm map data usable to create an SSIS pacakge able to import planet.osm
