Short Description
Builder for osm2pgrouting binary
Full Description



Before you can use this tool for importing Openstreetmap data you need to install:

  1. postgresql
  2. postgis
  3. pgrouting
  4. boost
  5. expat
  6. cmake

and to prepare a database.


See in the documentation of the pgrouting website for more informations:


For compiling this tool, you will need boost, libpq, expat and cmake:
Then just type the following in the root directory:

cmake -H. -Bbuild
cd build/
make install

If you have libraries installed in non-standard locations, you might need to pass in parameters to cmake. Commonly useful parameters are

Install some prerqeuisites

sudo apt-get install expat
sudo apt-get install libexpat1-dev

CMAKE options:

-DBOOST_ROOT:PATH=/path/to/boost  folder that contains include, lib, bin directories for boost

-DEXPATH_INCLUDE_DIR:PATH=/path/to/expat/include  the include folder for where your expat is installed

-DPOSTGRESQL_INCLUDE_DIR:PATH=/path/to/postgresql/include  the include folder for postgresql development headers

A cmake with custom options might look something like

cmake -DBOOST_ROOT:PATH=/local/projects/rel-boost-1.58.0 \
    -DPOSTGRESQL_INCLUDE_DIR:PATH=/local/projects/rel-pg94/include  -Bbuild

How to use

Prepare the database:

createdb routing
psql -dbname routing -c 'CREATE EXTENSION postgis'
psql -dbname routing -c 'CREATE EXTENSION pgRouting'

Start the program like this:

osm2pgrouting --f your-OSM-XML-File.osm --conf mapconfig.xml --dbname routing --username postgres --clean

Do incremental adition of data without using --clean

osm2pgrouting --f next-OSM-XML-File.osm --conf mapconfig.xml --dbname routing --username postgres
