The OSM File connector (OSM standing for OpenStreetMap) is used to extract data from OpenStreetMap files (.osm).
A reliable server to download extracts from the OpenStreetMap project is Geofabrik. It provides exports for different regions of the world.
The OSM connector can also read XML (.xml) files.
|Keep only amenities||Filters the export to only keep nodes and ways with the "amenity" tag. Amenities are important facilities for visitors and residents.||By default, this check box is selected. To include all nodes and ways, clear this check box.|
|Load additional OSM versioning metadata||Extracts the version number of each object. Values are stored in a "version" column.||By default, this check box is cleared.|
|Use centroid for polygons instead of shapes||Uses the centroid of the polygons.||By default, this check box is cleared, meaning that shapes are used for polygons.|
|OSM tags to map||Tags to extract from the nodes and ways.||Writes the tags to extract in the textbox. Tags should be separated with a comma.|
|Relation tags||Tags to extract from attached relations.||Writes the tags to extract in the textbox. Tags should be separated with a comma.|
