I need to parse osm xml into PostgreSQL - there are a lot of tools to do that - I want to know which tool is best when I want to create a routing engine using the PostgreSQL database?


EDIT: Using Windows - also by best I mean something that's relatively easy to use - I'm really new to this.

That depends on what routing engine you're using, but assuming it's pgrouting, look at osm2pgrouting and osm2po. osm2po is a Java application and much more likely to run satisfactorily on Windows, though it's closed source (if that's important to you).

if you want to try other opensource routing frameworks, type "routing" in the search box of this FAQ site.

@Richard actually the point of the project I'm working is to build my own routing engine. Right now I'm just look at ways to parse the data into a PostgreSQL database and then build my routing engine.
