Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

Ok, ultimately I am trying to do the following:

  • Take a full planet file and change all the colours/style sheet
  • Load the now altered planet data into a program that can handle it
  • Export raster tiles from it

I have tried loading the whole planet file into Maperitive but even with loads of RAM and space it can't seem to handle a full planet file.

I have tried using osm2pgsql and PostgreSQL with PostGIS to take the data from the file into a database but (without boring you) it doesn't work for me.

I've tried to get to the bottom of these issues to no avail so now I am just looking for suggestions of different ways to approach this. Does anyone have any alternative ways of achieving the above tasks?

I think that it's fair to say that "... using osm2pgsql and PostgreSQL with PostGIS to take the data from the file into a database" does work for at least some people. See also https://help.openstreetmap.org/questions/49178/osm2pgsql-appears-to-have-stopped-with-no-errors

Hey SomeoneElse, the question you reference is my question and I still haven't been able to get it working. I have now raised a bug on osm2pgsql's GitHub page in the hopes that someone can help me there. :)

I'd be surprised if it was an osm2pgsql bug; I've replied to your other help question.

Thanks, I just saw it.
