A Docker image with osm2pgsql, the tool for importing OpenStreetMap data into a Postgresql database.
Can be built from the Dockerfile:
# docker build -t onelouder/osm2pgsql github.com/level11consulting/osm2pgsql.git
This currently builds osm2pgsql for Debian from a specific tag; see the Dockerfile for the specific version. Alternatively, specify the tag and download the image from the Docker Hub.
Once the image is built, you can run a single-use container with osm2pgsql. Args will be passed to bash, so you will have access to environment variables in your run command.
# docker run -it --rm onelouder/osm2pgsql -c 'osm2pgsql -h'
When used with a postgis container, it can import data directly into the database:
# docker run -it --rm --link postgis:pg -v ~/inbox:/inbox -v ~/outbox:/outbox onelouder/osm2pgsql
This Dockerfile was built with information from the Ubuntu 14.04 Switch2OSM guide.
