Hi guys,

I just started using osmosis and I used following instructions:

But I immediatly get following error message when running the command (even with different pbf files).

Can anyone help?

Link to instructions missing in your question.

The error message means that you have an input file but you haven't specified what to do with the data once it has been read.

Adding --write-null to the end of the command line would make it valid (it just throws away the data) but this is likely not what you want, so you'll have to tell osmosis what it is supposed to do with the data.

Hi Frederik,

sorry for the missing link: https://learnosm.org/en/osm-data/osmosis/

The full command is following ( \ is used to change the line). I still get an error message but this time from line 7: completeRelations (saying its written incorrectly or can't be found)

Strange. Can you post the exact error message? Generally speaking, if you are only interested in Germany, why not use a Germany file to start with (http://download.geofabrik.de/europe/germany-150101.osm.pbf if you're desperate for an antique one) that will be much faster. Also, unless you really need power lines that lead out of the country, you can just drop the "completeRelations=yes" and it should still work.

Hi Frederik, it's now finally running. It seems it was more my inexperience in cmd/osmosis than a problem with the code. Thanks for the support.

Yeah, you're right that this approach is not yet the best. But first I want to get things running and than it's about improving. I am also using the current planet data, but the documentation is from 2015 though
