osmium-sort - sort OSM files
osmium sort [OPTIONS] OSM-FILE...
Merges the content of all input files given on the command line and sort the result. Objects are sorted by type, ID, and version.
This works with normal OSM data files, history files, and change files.
- -h, --help
- Show usage help.
- -v, --verbose
- Set verbose mode. The program will output information about what it is doing to stderr.
- -F, --input-format=FORMAT
- The format of the input file(s). Can be used to set the input format if it can't be autodetected from the file name(s). This will set the format for all input files, there is no way to set the format for some input files only. See osmium-file-formats(5) or the libosmium manual for details.
- -f, --output-format=FORMAT
- The format of the output file. Can be used to set the output file format if it can't be autodetected from the output file name. See osmium-file-formats(5) or the libosmium manual for details.
- Call fsync after writing the output file to force flushing buffers to disk.
- The name and version of the program generating the output file. It will be added to the header of the output file. Default is "osmium/" and the version of osmium.
- -o, --output=FILE
- Name of the output file. Default is '-' (STDOUT).
- -O, --overwrite
- Allow an existing output file to be overwritten. Normally osmium will refuse to write over an existing file.
- Add output header option. This option can be given several times. See the libosmium manual for a list of allowed header options.
osmium sort exits with exit code
- if everything went alright,
- if there was an error processing the data, or
- if there was a problem with the command line arguments.
osmium sort keeps the contents of all the input files in main memory. This will take roughly 10 times as much memory as the files take on disk in .osm.bz2 or osm.pbf format.
Sort in.osm.bz2 and write out to sorted.osm.pbf:
osmium sort -o sorted.osm.pbf in.osm.bz2
