Full Description

Import OSM into PostGIS using imposm3

This Docker image will import an OSM PBF file using imposm3 and
a custom mapping configuration.


Download PBF File

Use Geofabrik and choose the extract
of your country or region. Download it and put it into the directory.


The import-osm Docker container will take the first PBF file in the volume mounted to the /import folder and import it using imposm3 using the mapping file from the $MAPPING_YAML (default /mapping/mapping.yaml).


  • Mount your PBFs into the /import folder
  • Mount your mapping.yaml into the /mapping folder
  • If you want to use diff mode mountn a persistent location to the /cache folder for later reuse
docker run --rm \
    -v $(pwd):/import \
    -v $(pwd):/mapping \
    -e POSTGRES_USER="osm" \
    -e POSTGRES_PASSWORD="osm" \
    -e POSTGRES_HOST="" \
    -e POSTGRES_DB="osm" \
