A ready-made map and geodata server including a highly configurable converter which synchronizes OpenStreetMap data.

OpenStreetMap-in-a-Box is/was a ready-made map and geodata server including a highly configurable converter (osm2gis) which synchronizes OpenStreetMap data.

OpenStreetMap-in-a-Box (short OSM-in-a-Box or osminabox) is a dedicated server software which imports semi-structured OpenStreetMap (OSM) data and stores it as geographic features (entities). In addition, it keeps its base data in sync with the original OSM hosts. It is scalable, offers well-known geographic web services and is based on proven software components. As of now this is a read-only database (see Discussion). Updates need to be fed through the usual OSM software and hosts.

Common reasons to have your own map server include: you need reliable and fast web services, or custom map graphics (e.g. no buildings), or regionalized contents (e.g. local names). OpenStreetMap-in-a-Box (OSM-in-a-Box) delivers a software bundle which does this 'out-of-the-box' with an easy installer.

The OpenStreetMap-in-a-Box software consists of following parts:

  • A converter (Java) called 'osm2gis' which imports OSM data and stores the relevant part of it in the database (PostgreSQL/PostGIS) in a geospatial, relational database schema.
  • A spatial information server with geographic web services (GeoServer), like WMS, Tiling/Caching and WFS (read-only).
  • A web site to demonstrate the project (see showcase on homepage).

Compared to osm2pgsql - for those who know this - osm2gis is comparable but potentially non-lossy and rather flexible about attributes exported (the target schema). For a comparison of alternatives see the always-uptodate OSM desktop software.
