Hi there

how could I use the date of the streets, buildings, water, etc. for laserwork?

Is there a possibility to get them in layers?

In wich program (for example Illustrator) can I work with the data?

Thanks for your help!

Hi Lukas, just a reminder that if you're producing maps -- digital, paper, or 3D -- using OpenStreetMap data, you need to including attribution in order to comply with the data license. Typically "© OpenStreetMap contributors". See https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Legal_FAQ#3a._I_would_like_to_use_OpenStreetMap_maps._How_should_I_credit_you.3F

For large areas, download a Geofabrik extract for your country / region. Use Osmosis to further select a smaller rectangle or to select just a few feature types and convert to .OSM format.

Then the Perl file osmtoai.pl should convert to Illustrator format.

For small areas - try Export from the OpenStreetMap.org view, select Overpass API using XML format. Then use an OSM to PDF converter to create a PDF file, that Illustrator should be able to read.

Hi Mike thanks for you support. Is there any possibility to get larger areas? And is there no free option to convert the data? best Lukas
