[Loadstone] About OSM Converter

It's a good thing to have OSM points in the PSE database.

I've just tried to download 10 kilometers around my location 5 minutes ago, 
but I think there is an error. When I pressed the Download button, in the 
file name edit field of the Save As dialog box appeared:
I accessed “Get Data Near a Point”.

Another question is:
The points found in the PSE database are updated periodically, or they were 
insert there sometime ago, or they are retrieved from OSM database

You should try downloading points from the loadstone point share exchange.
The osm data has been integrated in to our data so you won't need the
converter. Trying to fit an entire country in to a loadstone database just
isn't going to work, the data would be too big. Using the point share you
can select the region or regions you actually need making the data small
enough to fit in to the database.
