Failed to load latest commit information. logo | global osm extracts

This project provides global data extracts based on OpenStreetMap data as GeoPackages. Each extract represents its related primary feature respectively key value regarding the OpenStreetMap project. Every GeoPackage contains the four types of geometries: point, line, multilinestring and multipolygon. For each primary feature all prepared tags are always contained in the same way.

Downloads - extracts are available on

In a monthly cycle new extracts are provided. The first Planet Dump of each month from will be available 3 days later as it takes a while for the data to be processed.

Projection of the geodata: WGS 84 | EPSG 4326 |


OpenStreetMap (OSM) offers an amazing collection of data. The information contained provides many possibilities to better understand the geogrpahy of the world, e.g. with the use of a geographic information system (GIS). There are many tools to create small extracts from OSM data: overpass-turbo (API) or other tools in QGIS/ArcGIS. A bigger challenge is creating ready to use GIS-compatible data sets from OSM, which cover whole countries, continents or even the whole world. is my hobby and absolutely non-commercial. I'm happy to share open data, knowledge and insights.
