Download data from Josm

Posted by clik on 29 March 2020 in English (English)

Hello everyone! I need some technical help.

As a lot of my work on OGF is a copy of what I map on paper (which I personally find a lot more convenient), I am looking for a way to extract information from JOSM to get a file that I will be able to put on a program and print.

For example :

I would like to extract the relation of Egani's boundaries and coastline. Then I need to find a program to make a very high resolution image (tens of thousands of pixels) of the data with lines. After that I may print a very big paper representing the data and work on it with pens and pencils.

Problems : - I Don't know how to extract the data that way - I Don't know which program to use to represent the relation on very high quality - Am I using the right technique to reach my goal?

I have no idea if what I want if possible, I cross fingers. If you have other ideas, I will be happy to hear them.

Thank you in advance!

It just so happens that I was just this morning experimenting with the tool that is probably the solution to your question: Maperitive.

Rather than explain here, I'll let you see the blog-post I made about it, here:

I ran a map of Egani at zoom 11 which is a .SVG file linked on that blog post - you might be able to use it, depending on what you want to accomplish.

Thank you Luciano! Thanks to you and some hours of figuring how to use the programs, I made it :-) I now have different versions of Egani where only some relations show, and that I can print in A1 size to work on paper.

Where do you get a A1 printer? haha

I go to a commercial printing shop with my file on a usb drive and ask them to print it the size I want on the type of paper I want :) it’s very cheap where I live in Russia.

Another way to do it is to print A4 pieces of the map and then stick them together.
