    Hi there,
    is there an easy way to download the full world. (Not regions)
    In the “map+poi” format?
    Seems a lot of work as every region needs manually be downloaded and decompressed.

    Well, some scripting will do. wget is a tool to get a single zip file. Then unzip.

    Thx for the hint… didn’t know it was possible to access the folder.

    For anyone looking for the same, the folder with the maps is accessible via:
    https://ftp.gwdg.de/pub/misc/openstreetmap/openandromaps/mapsV4/

    exactly and i wan’t all the road maps offline so i don’t depend on an internet connection.
    the few GB it needs are no problem with todays micro-sd cards.

    Yeah but these aren’t road maps but hiking and cycling. And for hiking every single country on the planet you need a lifetime, and the maps are updated every 1-4 months. And there are also overlapping maps and even some covering the same areas in different shapes.
    In normal times this makes little sense, and now with all those travel restrictions?

    yeah i know there its a hiking and cycling map but roads come with it for free ;)
    i also know that there are overlaps so a “world” map download would be great. but as long as it doesn’t exist i’ll have to use each single extract no matter how many overlaps there are.

    edit:
    found a solution, as no one brought up this:
    seems like openadromaps is just using the “mapsforge binary OSM” format with a map file extension.
    an description of this fileformat is here:
    https://github.com/mapsforge/mapsforge/blob/master/docs/Specification-Binary-Map-File.md
    A conversion tool here:
    https://github.com/mapsforge/mapsforge/blob/master/docs/Getting-Started-Map-Writer.md

    Hence via downloading the planet osm here:
    https://planet.openstreetmap.org/

    one can convert the whole planet via
    bin/osmosis --rb file=../data/planet.osm.pbf --mapfile-writer file=/tmp/planet.map

    So far the theory – and after some years of hard work you may end up with something like OAM :-)
    There is a middle ground, though: the world maps from OAM go up to ZL 11 (approx. 1:200000), which is good enough for orientation. Then dive into the local .oam.map file.
    A combined .map file for the whole world will blow any privately accessable computer in the process.

    well yes, it was over simplified above as one needs the stylesheet + tag-mapping etc.
    But it’s all there so no one will have to invest years ;)

    This forum seems to be pretty persimistic and only find problems instead of solutions ^^

    will blow any privately accessable computer

    well let’s see i already have the planet osm data in my postgresql DB and it can cope with it quite well (all imported via osm2pgsql)…. so if osmosis is nearly as efficient as osm2pgsql there won’t be any issue

    We tried this (making Planet) several times.
    IT IS NOT POSSIBLE

    You would need a Machine noone can afford or you have to leave away 90% of the features of OAM Maps

    If it is so simple: Try it

    Sorry
