Serval Maps Utils - OSM PBF Metadata

The intention of the OSM PBF Metadata application is to output metadata related to an OpenStreetMap data file in the PBF format. Currently the bounding box and the file size are reported.

The application can process a single file, or alternatively the application will recursively search through a directory looking for data files.

Using the Application

This application is written in Java and uses a command-line interface. The application supports the following command line options.

Option Description Allowed Values Required
-input the path to the top level directory of the map file repository a file system path yes

The application will recursively look for data files, those ending with an extension of .osm.pbf, starting at the directory specified by the -input parameter.

Alternatively the path to a single file to check can also be provided using the -input option.
