hi there! I have downloaded osc files, but I can't find the software to open it. osm files are easily exported with Quantum GIS, but there may be a software to manage both? Thank you!

osc files can be applied to a local.osm file using the software "osmosis" or "osmconvert", or applied to a local database with osm2pgsql, among others. osc files are generally not useful unless you already have the base data for the region.

see the OSM wiki about osmosis and osmconvert ... there is documentation and examples.

Thank you so much. I have the osm file and downloaded osc files related to it. But I don't really understand whether this is useful or not. I need to visualize the changes produced in a certain area, for which I already have the base data. I have used osmconvert to convert the osc files into osm files, is this the correct procedure?
