I'm working on a project with Arcmap. I downloaded an OSM file of Munich from openstreetmap.org then I imported this file into Arcmap using OpenStreetMap Toolbox . I have the list of points , lines and polygones . My questions are :
Hi tygaf, you say you downloaded an OSM file of Munich from openstreetmap.org. If this file only contained lists of points , lines and polygones I guess that you somehow got a raw .pdf file that was already processed (by osm2pgsql ?) Maybe you downloaded it from http://download.geofabrik.de/ ? The .shp files from that site typically contain only the list of points , lines and polygones and no other information that is present in the *.pbf file.
What you actually need is the original raw data file of Munich. The .pbf file and than process that file yourself with Osm2pgsql to extract the data you want in one or more .shp files.
In Qgis the process is a bit more straight forward. You can actually download the Munich area which is then presented as a large number of .shp files (thus not only three) from which you can retain the .shp files you need. Route information will be in relations which are not in the standard GeoFabrik extracts.
I don't know if the same can be done in Arcmap. If not you could try Qgis which is opensource and free.
hope this help a bit Gys
