we have an ,osm data in which we have used some tags that we defined ourselves like, age, roof_type, roof_slope . we want to convert this file to shapefile, in which the roof_type tag appears as a column name and its values as attributes.

we have tried:

QGIS: install plugin, only creates column of 7 tags, others are grouped into one column called tags

OSM2GIS: online tools, selects area on map, has many tags, but not user defined ones

Geoconverter: online tools, input a supported file and it will export a supported file, but not user defined ones

OSMembrane: frontend for Osmosis, still learning (connection problem to postgis)

osm2shp.c: still learning (having problem in running the program)

Have a look at the command line programm Osmconvert ... it has a feature to output OSM elements in CSV files.

You can define manually what columns are to be generated.
