http://github.com/GIScience/osm-vis-data

Please prefer using this data to avoid accessing the original data sources to frequently.

Installation

The repository contains all source code to generate a directory containing only static files to be uploaded to a web server. Please run the following steps to generate this directory:

  1. Install the Haskell Platform
  2. Install Node.js
  3. Install the dependencies using Node.js:
npm install
  1. Download and build all datasets needed for the visualizations. Follow the instructions giving in each subdirectory of contained in data-mining/
  2. Generate the directory www-dist:
npm run dist

The directory www-dist inside your repository should now contain all html, css, and js files, as well as the data, used for the visualizations. Upload them to any server you like. Enjoy exploring OSM visualizations!
