Latest commit 796cc9e Feb 21, 2017 @olt olt document current status


Imposm is an importer for OpenStreetMap data. It reads XML and PBF files and can import the data into PostgreSQL/PostGIS databases.


Imposm 2 is in maintenance mode and it's unlikely that we will provide any further releases. Please check out Imposm 3.

It is designed to create databases that are optimized for rendering/WMS services.

It is developed and supported by Omniscale, runs on Linux or Mac OS X and is released as open source under the Apache Software License 2.0.
