Swiss OSM Extracts
Using The Data
This directory contains an hourly updated extract of OSM for Switzerland in the .pbf binary format, OSM replication diffs for keeping a database up to date and a daily generated map file for OsmAnd.
The extracts and the diffs are generated using the switzerland-padded.poly polygon which buffers the Swiss border by 10km. The covered area includes Liechtenstein, most of the larger non-Swiss cities along the border and the complete surface of all the border lakes.
You are granted permission to use OpenStreetMap data by the OpenStreetMap License, which also describes your obligations.
You can process the extract with a variety of tools. Osmosis is a general-purpose command-line tool for converting the data among different formats and databases, and Osm2pgsql is a tool for importing the data into a Postgis database for rendering maps.
If you find data within OpenStreetMap that you believe is an infringement of someone else's copyright, then please make contact with the OpenStreetMap Data Working Group.
