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


I need to export all roads in the netherlands together with their maxspeed. I exported the osm.pbf file through geofabrik.de and imported this in postgresql with osm2psql. However, this data does not contain the maxspeed attribute, is there a method to extract all roads together with their maxspeed value for a particular country?

Your approach is good. You need to modify osm2pgsql's ".style" file to include a maxspeed column (maxspeed is not required for rendering hence is not part of the default schema) or alternatively use the --hstore option on import which will put all tags into a special "tags" column, and then you'll get the data you are looking for.

(If you're modifying the .style file, you can also throw away anything not related to roads - that will speed up your import and waste less space.)
