OSM History Renderer

From OpenStreetMap Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

This is a tool designed to import full history files of regions into a osm2pgsql-compatble database format and render maps for different slices of time. It consists of an importer and an renderer which can be used separately.

OSM history renderer is found on github.

This software isn't maintained any more. It is based on a very old version of Osmium.

Memory Usage

Area I tried to Import Size of the .osh.pbf-File RAM available Did it succeed? How long did it take? Username / Comments
Germany/Rheinland-Pfalz 176M 4G yep MaZderMind (talk) 16:54, 3 May 2014 (UTC)
Extract of Mainland USA from [1] 8G 2G nope [2] was using a standard AWS instance with about 7.5G memory (instance c3.2xlarge). The basic setup requires you to get an external EBS drive, move the Postgres database to use the EBS and then run the importer there. The extractor works great, took me a few minutes I think.
Extract of Mainland USA from [3] 8G 60G nope ran out of memory
