- Package for spatial analysis, simulation and visualization of Open Street Map data
- The plotting functionality is provided via a separate package
The goal of this package is to provide a backbone for multi-agent modelling and simulation of cities.
The package can parse
*.pbf (contributed by @blegat) files and generate a Graphs.jl representation along the metadata.

The current version uses at least Julia 1.5. However older versions will work with Julia 1.0.
using Pkg; Pkg.add("OpenStreetMapX")
In order to plot the maps we recommend two tools:
- rendering the maps yourself with PyPlot or Plots.jl with backend - use the
- rendering the maps with Leaflet.jl - use the Python folium package (examples can be found in the tutorial and the manual)
In order to install all plotting backends please run the commands below:
using Pkg pkg"add Plots" pkg"add PyPlot" pkg"add OpenStreetMapXPlot" pkg"add Conda" using Conda Conda.runconda(`install folium -c conda-forge`)
using OpenStreetMapX map_data = get_map_data("/home/ubuntu/mymap.osm"); println("The map contains $(length(map_data.nodes)) nodes")
Obtaining map data
The simplest way to get the map data is to go to the Open Street Map project web page.
In order to obtain the
*.osm file follow the steps below:
- Got to the area of your interest at https://www.openstreetmap.org/
- Click the "Export" button at the top of the page
- Click "Manually select a different area" to select the area of your interest
- Press the "Export" button on the left. Note that sometimes the Export link does not work - in this case click one of the links below the Export button (for example the Overpass API link)
This code is a major re-write of project - available at https://github.com/tedsteiner/OpenStreetMap.jl .
Compared to the original package major changes include among many others:
Graphs.jlis used for map data storage
- Several changes with routing algorithm (currently finding a route in a 1 million people city takes around 150ms)
- Added support for using Google Maps API for routing
- Data structure adjustment to make the library more suitable to run simulations of cities.
Plots.jlwith GR is used as backend for map vizualization (via a separate package
