How to put an entire country in a container: transportable OpenStreetMap data integration into Postgis using docker

Benjamin Deswysen

The presentation will spotlight the effective usage of the imposm command-line tool in synergy with Docker within an OpenStreetMap data pipeline, with a specific focus on integrating it with a PostGIS database.
The talk will delve into imposm's adeptness in seamlessly importing OSM data into the PostGIS spatial database system, bolstered by Docker's encapsulated and transportable runtime environment.
By harnessing imposm's robust schema mapping and data transformation capabilities alongside Docker's containerization advantages, the presentation will showcase how this combination allows speed, scalability, and replicability of OpenStreetMap data processing workflows, particularly in the context of PostGIS database utilization.
