Hello all,

I have a local OSRM server where I do some traffic simulations for studies, and I need to change some maxspeeds on the map.

What I am trying to do:

  • Download a pbf from geofrabrik
  • use osmosis to cut a small chunk where I want to edit. -
  • edit the chunk with JOSM And now I am stucked on how I merge the edits with the original pbf. I tried use osmosis to calculate diff, but if I use:

    osmosis --read-xml file="sudeste-latest-osm_02.osm" --read-pbf file="sudeste-latest.osm.pbf" --derive-change --write-xml-change file="changeset.osc"

When I apply the diffs to the original "sudeste-latest" with:

osmosis --read-xml-change file="changeset.osc" --read-pbf file="sudeste-latest.osm.pbf" --apply-change --write-pbf file="sudeste-new.osm.pbf"

The output file contains only the chunk that I updated.

If I calculated the diffs with:

osmosis --read-pbf file="sudeste-latest.osm.pbf" --read-xml file="sudeste-latest-osm_02.osm" --derive-change --write-xml-change file="changeset.osc"

When I apply the osc, none of my changes was applied. What I'm doing wrong?

Thank you!

Osmosis doesn't understand the JOSM xml file.

Osmium might work (I'm not sure):

If you create objects, you might also have to synthesize positive ids for them to satisfy the OSRM importer (I don't know if it supports negative ids or not).

Nice! I will give a try using Osmium!

Apparently, if instead of derive changes from the bigger pbf, I use the edited chunk against the non-edited chunk:

osmosis --read-xml file="sudeste-latest-osm_02_new.osm" --read-pbf file="sudeste-latest-osm_02_old.osm" --derive-change --write-xml-change file="changeset.osc"

Them the changeset was applied to the original pbf, but Osmium seems to me to be more cleaner, let see!

Thank you!
