CyberGIS OSM Mappings (cybergis-osm-mappings)

Description

This repository contains OpenStreetmap (OSM) mappings for use by GeoGig. See the "Using GeoGig with OpenStreetMap Data" page for more information at: http://geogig.org/docs/interaction/osm.html. The mappings folder includes the mappings in json format. The mappings are broken out into namespaces/categories, mostly following ISO categories. These are standardized mappings that should represent most basic OSM features, but also cover common mispellings and mistaggings.

See the guides in the cybergis-guides repo at https://github.com/state-hiu/cybergis-guides/, for examples on use these mappings.

CyberGIS

The Humanitarian Information Unit has been developing a sophisticated geographic computing infrastructure referred to as the CyberGIS. The CyberGIS provides highly available, scalable, reliable, and timely geospatial services capable of supporting multiple concurrent projects. The CyberGIS relies on primarily open source projects, such as PostGIS, GeoServer, GDAL, GeoGit, OGR, and OpenLayers. The name CyberGIS is dervied from the term geospatial cyberinfrastructure.

ROGUE

The Rapid Opensource Geospatial User-Driven Enterprise (ROGUE) Joint Capabilities Technology Demonstration (JCTD) is a two-year research & development project developing the technology for distributed geographic data creation and synchronization in a disconnected environement. This new technology taken altogether is referred to as GeoSHAPE. See http://geoshape.org for more information. HIU is leveraging the technology developed through ROGUE to build out the CyberGIS into a robust globally distributed infrastruture.

Installation

These installation instructions are subject to change. Right now, since there are no debian package dependencies, you can really extract the repo to whatever directory you want. The instructions below are suggested as they mirror Linux best practices for external packages.

As root, execute the following commands:

cd /opt
git clone https://github.com/state-hiu/cybergis-osm-mappings.git cybergis-osm-mappings.git

The CyberGIS Scripts repo (cybergis-scripts) also contains some tools for automating the process of creating OpenStreetMap extracts. See the installation guide at https://github.com/state-hiu/cybergis-scripts.

Usage

Extents are currently limited to bounding boxes in the S W N E format to conform closely to the osm download command explained in the Downloading data from an OSM Server section of the GeoGig User Manual. Complex geometry extents are possible but are not sufficiently integrated to work at scale. You can do complex geometry extents, but it currently requires hand writing filters using the Overpass Query Language.

The easist mapping to start with is the basic:buildings_and_roads mapping available at [link].

You can learn more about OSM mappings from the GeoGig User Manual at http://geogig.org/docs/interaction/osm.html#data-mapping.

To learn how to create extracts check out the OSM Extracts CyberGIS Guide at [link]. You can also look at examples of extracts of Khulna, Bangladesh and Ebola Crisis.
