pbf

OpenStreetMap PBF golang encoder/decoder

Build Status Go Report Card Documentation codecov.io License

A golang based OpenStreetMap PBF encoder/decoder with a handy command line utility, pbf.

pbf Command Line Utility

The pbf CLI can be installed using the go install command:

$ go install m4o.io/pbf/cmd/pbf

pbf info

The pbf CLI can be used to obtain summary and extended information about an OpenStreetMap PBF file:

$ pbf info -i testdata/greater-london.osm.pbf
BoundingBox: [-0.511482, 51.28554, 0.335437, 51.69344]
RequiredFeatures: OsmSchema-V0.6, DenseNodes
OptionalFeatures: 
WritingProgram: Osmium (http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Osmium)
Source: 
OsmosisReplicationTimestamp: 2014-03-24T21:55:02Z
OsmosisReplicationSequenceNumber: 0
OsmosisReplicationBaseURL: 

JSON output can be obtained by adding the -j option:

$ pbf info -j -i testdata/greater-london.osm.pbf | jq
{
  "BoundingBox": {
    "Left": -0.511482,
    "Right": 0.33543700000000004,
    "Top": 51.69344,
    "Bottom": 51.285540000000005
  },
  "RequiredFeatures": [
    "OsmSchema-V0.6",
    "DenseNodes"
  ],
  "OptionalFeatures": null,
  "WritingProgram": "Osmium (http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Osmium)",
  "Source": "",
  "OsmosisReplicationTimestamp": "2014-03-24T14:55:02-07:00",
  "OsmosisReplicationSequenceNumber": 0,
  "OsmosisReplicationBaseURL": ""
}

Here, jq is used to pretty print the compact JSON.

Extended information about the OpenStreetMap PBF file can be obtained by using the -e option. This causes the entire file to be scanned, which can take a very long time; a progress bar is displayed on stderr.

$ pbf info -e -i testdata/greater-london.osm.pbf
BoundingBox: [-0.511482, 51.28554, 0.335437, 51.69344]
RequiredFeatures: OsmSchema-V0.6, DenseNodes
OptionalFeatures: 
WritingProgram: Osmium (http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Osmium)
Source: 
OsmosisReplicationTimestamp: 2014-03-24T21:55:02Z
OsmosisReplicationSequenceNumber: 0
OsmosisReplicationBaseURL: 
NodeCount: 2,729,006
WayCount: 459,055
RelationCount: 12,833

Finally, pbf can read an OpenStreetMap PBF file from stdin:

$ cat testdata/greater-london.osm.pbf | pbf info -e

In this case, a progress bar is not displayed since there is no way to know, a priori, what the size of the PBF file is.
