Hi,
If you were able to convert the file Poland.osm from
http://download.geofabrik.de/osm/europe/poland.osm.bz2
(24-Jul-2009 03:36)
, so that each output LS POI contained:
- A category,
- An address (without ZIP - only street plus house number),
- City name,
I'd be very happy.
Thanks in advance,
Przemyslaw

  Yes, these can be collected and put into the name field. However, You will find that this makes the name field too long to appear in the mobile phone. 

  There is no problem collecting these fields. The question is, what can you do with them?

  If you like, I will collect all of these items and you can try out your own ideas of what to do to access them when you are using the phone. Would that be useful?


  All the best,

  Cearbhall

    Thanks fro the info. I will be able to give it some time this weekend. 

    Yes, the details can be included in the name field but you run the risk of being unable to display it on the mobile when there is so much detail. I am not sure what you mean by "category" of the POI. Could you explain that? 

    All the best,

    Hi,
    The link is:
    http://download.geofabrik.de/osm/europe/poland.osm.bz2
    17-Jul-2009 03:50
      However, you can easily extract it under Windows, using eg. 7zip:
      http://heanet.dl.sourceforge.net/sourceforge/sevenzip/7z465.exe

      By the way: What fields is an OSM record consisted of?
      I mean, what other fields apart from latitude and longitude can be converted?
      Could a Loadstone output include - if possible - POI's category, street name, house number and city name?
      Thanks in advance for conversion.
      Hope I'll be able to do it myself in the future, so as not to trouble you so much...

      Not so easy, I am afraid.

      It is a bit complicated to convert the Long and Lat so I have it built into an Excel spread sheet. You would need it to be in a compiled format if I were to pass it to you. I would be happy to do the conversion for you if you send me the osm file. I would need the file to be in a windows compatible format rather than Linux.

      If necessary, you can send me the link rather than the file. Please make sure that the link points to the file you want and downloads it to Windows.

      Looking forward to hearing from you.


      All the best,

      Cearbhall

        Hi,

        It's representing the state of Pennsylvania in the united states. and I did change the values in the php.ini file and it still says out of memory. 
        too bad there isn't a .osm file splitter.
