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


With the current document, osmosis only support extracting a subset from a large downloaded file by define a polygon.

But whether there’s a solution to cut out data within a defined polygon.

I have file europe.pbf, what I want to do is cutting out 'Russia' data, keep other country, but I can't find a way which can help me.

Check the example on http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Osmosis/Polygon_Filter_File_Format - what you want is a file with two polygons, the first being a large rectangle around Europe (or a rectangle that covers the whole planet), the second should be a polygon describing Russia, and it needs to be introduced with an exclamation mark which means it is a "hole" in the polygon before.

Thanks a lot for the rectangle that covers the whole planet, whether it could be '90,180', '90,-180', '-90,-180', '-90, 180'?

Yep, that'll work.
