Hello Przemys?law,

the OSM data consists of a los of map features.
A list is found here:


This list is never complete as there are always mappers proposing and testing new types of objects.

In 2010 there will be a book on OSM in English language, which is at the moment only available in German.
It is called "OpenStreetMap" and the authors are Frederik Ramm and Jochen Topf.

Until it is published you can only read through the OSM Wiki I linked above.
