Sosi2osm is a small utility which converts SOSI files released by the Norwegian Mapping Authority (Kartverket) into OSM-files.

In order to do a basic conversion one may run:

sosi2osm input.sosi default.lua > output.osm

This will keep the original SOSI tags.

In order to convert an address node file, one may use:

sosi2osm input.sosi adresser.lua > output.osm

Other lua-files ([1]) may be made for the conversion desired.
