Can you give a clue what "mif format" is? I've never heard of it; I suspect other people haven't either.

Searching the OSM wiki for mif yields several pages about tools being able to read/write MIF (MapInfo Interchange Format) files. Did you already try them?

My client need the whole planet data in mif/mid format with terrain(places,airport,cloud) etc

ok, we have places, we have some airports, but "cloud"? I'm not sure I can follow you.

What about buildings? If you don't need them then you don't want to convert a whole planet file either.

BTW: Did you think about commercial OSM services before? Some of these companies might be able to help you with your requirement, see http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Commercial_OSM_Software_and_Services for contacts.

Hi Scai, thanks for your response. I need map data in mif format. I have some renderer or software which is read mif file. i convert small portion of osm or pbf file in mif/mid format. But i need whole planet data in mif format.
