Command-line script for merging points from a third-party source with OpenStreetMap data
This is a script for merging points from some third-party source with OpenStreetMap data. Please make sure the license allows that. After merging and uploading, the data can be updated.
See the OSM wiki page for detailed description and instructions.
Run pip install osm_conflate.
Each source should have a profile. It is a python script with variables configuring names, tags and processing. See heavily commented examples in the profiles directory.
For a simplest case, run:
conflate <profile.py> -o result.osm
You might want to add other arguments, to pass a dataset file or prepare a preview GeoJSON. Run conflate -h to see a list of arguments.
Uploading to OpenStreetMap
It is recommended to open the resulting file in the JOSM editor and manually check the changes. Alternatively, you can use bulk_upload.py to upload a change file from the command line.
Please mind the Import Guidelines, or your work may be reverted.
