Is there any OSM to GDF converter available. If yes, please point to the converter and if not will it be helpful to the community at large if such a converter is written ? I could find a similar question here, but the question has been posted and answered a long time ago ( in 2007).

I believe there is at least one commercial solution available from German software engineering company Logiball (; also the commercial date conversion tool FME ( supports both OSM and GDF but I don't know if and how you can convert between the two.

I am not aware of any Open Source solution.

Thanks for the answer, but can you please elaborate as to why is it not possible to convert between these format, as you remarked that there already exists a commercial solution for the same.

I think Frederik's comment relates to import/export features of FME, i.e. he wasn't sure if you can define the following processing pipeline:

Import OSM file ====> (some magic happens) ====> Write out converted GDF file(s)

Say only reading both formats obviously won't help, you need to cover the whole processing pipeline.
