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


Hi, I am in a need to extract a street list of a given city in a csv format, with some lon/lat data, to focus on the map on the street, when a person is searching it in the app. What is the easyest way/tool to make it?

The CSV option of osmconvert will help you generating the required list.

First, use osmfilter with --keep="highway=residential =primary =secondary =tertiaty =unclassified", etc., to get all streets, then use osmconvert with --all-to-nodes and --csv="@lon @lat name etc." to get the CSV list.

it should be =tertiary not =tertiaty

osmfilter city.osm --keep="addr:country= and addr:city= and addr:street=" --ignore-depemdencies --drop-relations --drop-ways |osmconvert - --csv="@oname @id @lon @lat addr:country addr:city addr:street"

Thank you. I used your command line and it worked but it doesn't show all the streets.

I am working on Spain map data.[1] I did this:

  • osmconvert spain-latest.osm.pbf -o=spain-latest.osm.o5m
  • osmfilter spain-latest.osm.o5m --keep="addr:country= and addr:city= and addr:street=" --ignore-depemdencies --drop-relations --drop-ways | osmconvert - --csv="@oname @id @lon @lat addr:country addr:city addr:street"

And it shows 135444 results, including duplicates. Then I grep a municipality like "Jerez de la Frontera":

  • osmfilter spain-latest.osm.o5m --keep="addr:country= and addr:city= and addr:street=" --ignore-depemdencies --drop-relations --drop-ways | osmconvert - --csv="@oname @id @lon @lat addr:country addr:city addr:street" | cut -f6-7 | grep "Jerez de la Frontera" | sort | uniq

And it shows only 2 streets, which is obvious wrong:

Jerez de la Frontera Calle Perú Jerez de la Frontera Matadero

That municipality has names for many streets in OpenStreetMap.


What is the problem? Thank you.

I reply to myself. It shows few streets because not all the streets have a defined "addr:city" parameter.

So I used this solution:

Now you have a .osm file for the municipality. Inside it is all the information (streets, buildings, monuments, etc) for that city.

You can use osmfilter or grep to extract the info your want.

Maposmatic will give you a csv of the streets, but it shows a local grid reference instead of an exact lat-long. Maybe you can reverse that reference to get the approximate lat/lon, since you know the bounding box and the size of the grid ?

@Vincent-de-phily Thank you, but it's not an easy way...
