Databases on db0

Database actuality is available here

openstreetmap database

Software — PostgreSQL 8.4.

Scheme is taken osmosis-0.38 distribution, which means it matches scheme used on OSM servers at the moment osmosis-0.38 was released (API). Any significant changes of the scheme are only possible if current scheme is no longer supported by osmosis, or if changes are so important it is worth the time and effort (changes which doesn't require much time and effort will be introduced timely).

The base is updated with minnute diffs, maximum lag related to OSM servers whouldn't exceed 5 minutes.

The database is only available in read-only mode (SELECT). Access is available for anyone with useful and working OSM-related projects. Personal database with full access for storing own data is provided as well, upon request.

osm_simple database

Software PostgreSQL 8.4. + Postgis 1.5

Schema used is postgis_simple from osmosis-0.38 distribution (pgsql_simple_schema_0.6.sql).

Replication, access and scheme change policy is the same as with openstreetmap database.
