Imports Norwegian libraries to OSM.

Usage: python library2osm > output_filename.osm.


  • Extracts Norwegian libraries from BaseBibliotek and produces an OSM file.
  • Libraries are identified with their ref:isil number.
  • Library types are explained here.
  • Public libraries ("folkebibliotek") are tagged with access=yes*.
  • The National Library of Norway has requested e-mail adresses not to be imported into OSM to avoid spamming.
  • Many libraries have no coordinates. They may be geocoded using geocode2osm.
  • An OSM file with all public libraries has been stored here.


You can’t perform that action at this time.
