example

First grab a pbf torrent from http://osm-torrent.torres.voyager.hr/files/rss.xml or from http://download.geofabrik.de/

var fs = require('fs');
var through = require('through2');
var parseOSM = require('osm-pbf-parser');
 
var osm = parseOSM();
fs.createReadStream(process.argv[2])
    .pipe(osm)
    .pipe(through.obj(function (itemsencnext) {
        items.forEach(function (item) {
            console.log('item=', item);
        });
        next();
    }))
;

Then you can parse the results:

$ node parser osm.pbf | head -n15
item= {

  id: 122321,

}

methods

var parseOSM = require('osm-pbf-parser')

Return a transform parser stream that takes a binary OSM protocol buffer stream as input and produces parsed objectMode rows as output.

rows

Each row from the output stream has a row.type.

parallel processing

The module exposes BlobParser and BlobEncoder so that you distribute binary work units for parsing. See the pstats example.

install

With npm do:

npm install osm-pbf-parser
