Summary: Mapping public electric vehicle charging stations in Torino, Venaria, Villach, and Calvià. The script will be first applied to Torino and Venaria case. Then Villach and Calvià will follow. This is part of EU funded STEVE project ( conducted by VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland - Digital Mapping Team.


Collecting data for existing charging stations from various sources (such as BlueTorino, Evway), and use the data to:

  • Update charging stations already in OSM with accurate and detailed data.
  • Create missing charging stations.

Following the progress of STEVE project:

  • Mapping the new charging stations built for the STEVE project (mainly ELV and moped charging stations).


Phase 1 - Planning


  • Contact source companies and get their approval of using their data for charging stations in Torino, Venaria, Villach, and Calvià under ODbL license.
  • Get community approval, write documentation and tools.


June 2018 - August 2018



Phase 2 - Import


  • Import data for amenity=charging_station in Torino, Venaria, Villach, and Calvià. For new nodes, it will be an automated procedure. For possibly existing nodes, user will manually check each node to avoid duplication.


July 2018 - August 2018


Phase 3 - Maintenance
