Python bindings for libosmium, the data processing library for OSM data

Project description

This library provides Python bindings for the Libosmium C++ library, a library for working with OpenStreetMap data in a fast and flexible manner.


pyosmium can be installed with pip:

pip install osmium

The Pypi source package already comes bundled with a matching version of libosmium, protozero and pybind11. Pyosmium additionally depends on expat, libz, libbz2 and Boost variant and iterator. You need to install development packages for these libraries. On Debian/Ubuntu do:

sudo apt-get install build-essential cmake libboost-dev \
                   libexpat1-dev zlib1g-dev libbz2-dev

Python >= 3.4 is supported.


The documentation for the latest release is available at

If you find bugs or have feature requests, please report those in the Github issue tracker. For general questions about using pyosmium you can contanct the OSM development mailing list or ask on OSM help.


The package contains an example directory with small examples on how to use the library. They are mostly ports of the examples in Libosmium and osmium-contrib.


Pyosmium is available under the BSD 2-Clause License. See LICENSE.TXT.

The source code can be found on GitHub.
