Puerto Rico OSM Data

A daily extract of Puerto Rico is available at Geofabrik in PBF format (JSOM users may need the PBF plugin). The daily extract is also available as a shape file compatible with ESRI.

A weekly extract in XML(.osm) format is also available in the same site.

The polygon file (.poly) defining the bound of the PR region is available here.

City University of NY (Puerto Rico studies program) has an ongoing mapping project related to reconstruction. More at Talk:Puerto_Rico_Projects
